BUG Midrange (With Gatecrash)

Hello! I have been toying around with this idea and I quite like it. All the elves interact together really well and so far it has tested pretty well against G/W Humans, RDW, Naya (midrange and aggro) and a few Boros. I still haven't had the chance to playtest it against any form of control. I'm very interested to hear any comments and I will answer any questions! 

 

 

I'm already considering dropping the 2 Zegana and 2 Whispering Madness for 4 Deathrite Shaman 
Yeah, well, that's just like, your opinion, man.
Wow, maybe it's because I'm totally an amateur player, but it seems like this deck is trying to do too much.

I might suggest dropping the mill theme, but it all looks solidish.  My mind says the deck lacks consistency, but I also think it might play fairly well.

Have you thought of dropping the Aberrations, Whisperings for Biomass Mutation?  Gives you something to do with all that mana.  I like Zegana, but Deathrites are always a good call...

EDIT:  Nevermind, I see the Mutations in your sideboard.  I'd think about mainboarding one or two as a wincon.

The mill is an alternate wincon as only 6 cards are dedicated to milling. (jace, Drownyard, Mind Grind)

Whispering Madness is, imo, a much better card for an aggressive deck where it is refilling your hand after burning out. I.E. I would cast it when I have maybe 1-2 cards in hand while my opponent has 3+. Consuming Aberration's main purpose is to be a giant beater / get flung by Jarad. 

Archdruid + Master Biomancer's interaction is nuts good. Turns that mid game Arbor Elf into a monster.

I will do more playtesting with Deathrites. With the side milling, her abilities should always be available.
Yeah, well, that's just like, your opinion, man.
I figured the Aberration was purely a target for Jarad, and the Druid and Biomancer's abilities are nuts!  (Didn't even see that one, feel dumb.)

The Whisper will be tentatively good against control decks (assuming they dont counter it or bounce your guy), but it could end up hurting you against agressive decks that dump their hands by turn 3.

Mutation is solid against all decks given the amount of mana and creatures you have.  Its weakest match is against control...and only for the same reason The Whisper is tentatively good and not just good.

I'm not saying get rid of the Whisper (I'm not that good of a player), but I'm thinking it and the Mutation work better switched around.
