Quote from headminerve »Well, I would drop Scales actually, and the Selesnya manabase. Allied colours are so horrendous in the format, and here you want a green card to be cast on turn 1. You'll have inconsistencies just because of it.
I would do:
-4 Scales +4 Alseid of Life's Bounty,
-4 Commune +4 Board the Weatherlight
-4 extra copies of anything +2 Legion's Landing, +2 Shadowspear
I'd run plains and Castle Ardenvale as the only utility land, but I understand Nykthos is tempting. Not 4 copies though. The issue with Nythos will be Linden, potentially Arcanist's Owl, which can't be cast on curve if one of your land is Nykthos (most of the time).
I worked a bit on the archetype, it's not quite fast, so I don't think we can afford to break the curve with greedy slots.
