So some cool synergies going on.

I think what you want to do with the deck is a comboish aggro.

Erebos is good but seems random in this deck unless you make it more control/rock ish. And use it as a finisher. And deserves it's own deck imo. Begging to be broken.

You have a TON of creature buffs but really only a couple creatures that come online before turn 4.

Not enough 1 drops.


Your manabase needs some fixing...

He is kinda random, but it gives more gas later, and he's a good finisher, easy to wake up with the 4 assassins helping out, and the hero gives plenty of life to spend.

With 4x hero and agent of the fates, I want lots of targetting going on, which is why I opted for the dryad and some of the other enchantments. I can probably limit it a bit. But I also need to look at everything standard has to offer first.

I know you're going crazy heroic shenanigans but golgari charm's regenerate option could do wonders with so many creatures trying to do things.

That's definitely a cool possibility. I just literally threw up the list while I was looking at Theros spoilers last night. :P

That's fine, I make all my decks in less than 20 minutes.

Upgrade to making your decks while drunk! Uh, assuming you are of legal age, of course.

It really does work! This is how I designed my Maralen of the Mornsong/Stranglehold deck.

I would, but I don't drink.

mindlock orb obvious inclusion.

Anyways, your deck feels unfocused. The ordeals only seem good if you have heroic abilities you really need to be triggering, but the only heroic ability with any major impact is agent of the fates. Warrior's lesson seems like it would be better in a deck with more cheap creatures. Other than the lack of synergy, the cards themselves don't seem particularly powerful. And you're playing auras that you plan on putting on your own creatures, which is like giving your opponent a free ride on the value train headed to blowout city. Finally, you need more lands.

Yeah, the lands are terrible. I haven't had much time to tweak this, but the number of auras is too high also, obviously. I don't know why Boob Satyr isn't on there, and Nighthowler was lost in the copy paste wasteland somehow. Sorry guys, I'll try to update at some point.
