Our gameplan is land denial. We shoot for land-destruction on turns two, three, four and beyond. We want to keep our opponents on one or two lands at most, pressing the advantage with creatures like 'Goyf and Demigod of Revenge. Once they are unable to recover from our land-destruction, we can work in the beats and big spells to win.

Critters

Birds of Paradise - Fixer, accel

Llanowar Elves - Accel

Simian Spirit Guide - Better on-color accel, one shot use though

'Goyf - 'Nuff said

Fulminator Mage - Staple, 4-of

Avalanche Riders - Staple, 3- or 4-of

Shivan Wumpus - Questionable, reminds me of Browbeat

Shriekmaw - Kills 'Goyf dead, solid w/ Mannequin builds

Demigod of Revenge - Solid wincon

Oona, Queen of the Fae - Possible wincon

Spells

Bitterblossom - Tough fit in our curve

Rain of Tears - Sure, it isn't Stone Rain, but it does the trick here! 4-of!

Makeshift Mannequin - Sometimes, they come back! Great w/ our LD creatures

Damnation - Good vs. our harder match-ups (aggro)

Mwonvuli Acid-Moss - Sub-par LD

Void - Discard / Sweeper

Primal Command - Versatile. Dig up an LD Critter, uproot a land, reshuffle as needed, or even gain some life

Profane Command - Very handy! Kill, recur, induce fear, and life drain! All in one!

Real Estate

Graven Cairns, Fire-Lit Thicket - Solid fixers

Grove of the Burnwillows - Inverted painland (better than Karplusan here)

Sulfurous Springs, Llanowar Wastes - Painlands

Reflecting Pool - Useful in small numbers

Gemstone Mine - We have demanding color requirements

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - The Swamp Maker

Swamps, Forests, and Mountains - These help, a lot

Plan B

Pithing Needle - Always handy

Extirpate - Useful hate

Deathmark - This may help against GW mid-range, which looks viable post-Shadowmoor

Eyes of the Wisent - Could be helpful

Pyroclasm - Cheap sweep

Vexing Shusher - Powerful little goblin!

Krosan Grip - Duh.

Bottle Gnomes - With Grim Harvest, hilarious

Eyeblight's Ending, Slaughter Pact, Nameless Inversion, Sudden Death - General removal spells

Cryoclasm - Solid board LD

Chameleon Colossus - Possible wincon vs. black-oriented metagames

Sulfurous Blast - Stick it to Faeries, possible MD inclusion

Detritivore - Gives us a late-game reach to keep them off lands and can be a modest beater too!

Cloudthresher - Anti-Faeries, works with Mannequin somewhat

Ingot Chewer - Cheap artifact kill, late-game 3/3
