I randomly had a whim to bring Food back as an aggressive self-mill strategy. This will be really fun for the next like 5 minutes until rotation.

The Setup

4 Arboreal Grazer
4 Gilded Goose
4 Golden Egg
3 Witch's Oven
2 The Great Henge

The Squad

4 Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath
4 Cavalier of Thorns
4 Feasting Troll King

The Fam

4 Emry, Lurker of the Loch
2 Tamiyo, Collector of Tales
1 Jace, Wielder of Mysteries

The Crib

4 Breeding Pool
4 Gingerbread Cabin
2 Temple of Mystery
2 Ketria Triome
8 Forest
4 Island

Yes, you will win games with Jace's static. Yes, it will be nerve-wracking. Only play Jace a) early, so that he can be fetched with Tamiyo or Cavalier later, or b) at the last possible moment when you deck yourself. Triome is your only instant speed draw, so if you suspect an answer to Jace, hold a Triome in hand as long as possible.

Be careful to turn on Full Control when playing Uro with an Oven out, otherwise you won't get the priority window to sac it before it sacs itself.

In general, just work on setting up a board of huge, hard to kill dudes; use Emry to play Henge if it gets milled or blown up but she usually just provides some mill and minor value with Eggs and Ovens. Try not to forget that Tamiyo can -3 like I do all the time. And be very, very aggressive in slamming early boards because there's no interaction at all.

If you do want more interaction, a wishboard is a strong option that I didn't have enough wildcards to support. Fae can fetch what you need and also discard your Trolls and Uros.

Overall, the deck is really powerful and a lot of people aren't prepared for it.
