Quote from D90Dennis14 »As Seal Away can often be a dead card I wonder if maindecking Lightning Strike can be better as it can at least go to the face and make Fight with Fire or Banefire for lethal a bit easier.
Ixalan's Binding would still be in the deck to deal with bigger creatures though with Assassin's Trophy and Knight of Autumn in the format it isn't as permanent a removal as it used to be.
Speaking of Knight of Autumn, I considered maindecking it over Thrashing Brontodon but I'm not convinced yet.
The dino is a better blocker and having the option to remove an artifact/enchantment at will (with a mana open) instead of having to time its EtB ability also seems better.
I've also added copies of Shalai and The Immortal Sun to the SB taking out Chandra which is probably just a win-more card.
Another potentially good finisher I consider for the deck is March of the Multitudes which can work well even without convoke to generate a big board with all the mana this deck can sink into it.
Quote from Controlfreakk »And yeah, the Elf dies to removal. You play it as a booster to fasten up your deck. I think, DCteamup would agree. If you loose him in turn 3-5, it doesn't really matter. As I said, your deck is turn 1: do nothing, turn 2: do nothing, turn 3: ramp, turn 4: ramp, turn 5: do something for 7-8 mana... ...which probably is Carnage Tyrant or Fight with Fire. I don't see that working.
If you want to stay creatureless, get rid of your own creatures and main board your mass removal. You are basicly just winning with this deck if your opponent does nothing.
