You seem to be boarding out domri quite a bit which I think is fine since he plays a more of a flex spot in the deck.
I don't really understand dropping a pod in the uwr matchup, can you explain?
Also I didn't really notice you siding out phantasmal image very often which is a slot i often look to cut when i am unlikely to have an opportunity to chain all the way to combo. This is especially bad vs decks with electroyze. If you aren't playing image, you probably should be since it allows a fairly easy to assemble turn 4 kill when necessary vs other combos or tron.
Quote from SubbakI'm considering dropping Linvala (I mean, to the side, i'm not crazy enough to not have her in the 75), but I can't help but think that this will end in disaster. Her ability is less useful in the current meta (mostly because DRS is no more), but her 4 toughness is a lot more meaningful now than it was months ago.
Obstinate Baloth blocks Nacatl, has a decent shot at blocking Goyf, gains us life which is far from useless, and laughs in the face of Anger of the Gods. I prefer it to Relic, but OTOH I play 2 Scooze.

Ehrmagersh, a new deck is doing well. Breakz out de banhammerz!
Quote from cerefauxwent 3 - 0 tonight. 2 -1 v Mystical Teachings, 2 - 0 v UWR Geist, and 2 - 0 v Jund. i didn't combo off once in 7 games--everything was beat down. a few thoughts:
- moving Huntmaster of the Fells to the sideboard was a good call, and he is an absolute beast in the situations where i side him in (UWR and Jund tonight);
- playing a Loxodon Smiter mainboard was a good call. there's so much UWR or straight up blue counters in this meta that he's super relevant (and his body is huge with an exalted dude);
- siding out 1 Birthing Pod on the draw is a really good play. i did it every time and it helped free up a slot.
there's only one last decision i need to make to finalize my list: the Kiora's Follower slot. she seems to attract removal as soon as she's played, so obviously opponents are concerned about her. that said, she is slow and cute. if she sticks around she's great, but often i don't even want to play her. i think a third Voice of Resurgence is just better, but i suspect Anger of the Gods will see a fair amount of play. tough call.
Quote from Techn0rangeDo you guys think 1x Courser of Kruphix would be playable over the 3rd/4th Kitchen Finks? It's got the same mana cost, some deck manipulations with fetches/domri/chord/pod, lifegain to offset fetch/shockland, and with 4 toughness survives bolt/anger.

Has anyone tested Flametongue Kavu as a 1-of either main or side? It seems like it could be a useful card for us (general removal that hits hosers like Linvala, Keeper of Silence) akin to Shriekmaw that Melira is maindecking now. Secondly, does anyone actually like Fiery Justice? I've never tested with it either.
Quote from nicogranelliSadly Flametongue Kavu is not modern legal
