Decklists without explanations are pretty much useless.

my s/b was the same except no primals some maccabres turn to mists.Whoever said crappy cards like crov swap is very wrong.If you know anything about the meta remove from the game spells are very good.

I think that 3 mana acceleration in a so top-heavy deck as this is something that needs to be addressed.

The right number should be 6 or 7, maybe even 8 spells. 4 Wall of Roots, 3-4 of something else. Since you do nothing turn 1, probably Search for Tomorrow. Edge of Autumn is also good.

The deck is not aggro, but control. And you have many copies of the highest casting-costed spells, and few of the low-casting cost spells. That is the opposite of how it should be.

If this is not the route you want to go, take out the control aspects like Wrath of God and Crib Swap, and add more low-costed creatures.

As it is now, it is weaker as a mana-ramp deck than GW ramp, and it is weaker as a beatdown deck than GW beef-fest. The trade-off is the flexibility of combining the strengths of those two, but at the cost of stability.

when you use alot of mana excel you are taking up deck slots for spells that do not effect the game very much...at best you sit there with a pile of mana....this deck normally manhandles big mana decks....the leige deck can be a good matchup but i can win just as many games than they canif not more......when you pile up mana excel your saying my deck is so good i dont need as many spells that can do things like win the game....ive used 1 drop spells and it really effecte the decks performance...this deck was made with the meta in mind.....how do you deal with a turn 2 doran?a wall of roots..or a turn 3 removal spell....bitterblossom?thresher or oring....Mayby you should play this deck about 50 games then post a reply.Not being a jerk but in all reality this doesnt sound like you know how the deck works.Also if i havnt posted it eyes of the wisentx3 or 4 in s/b along with some shushers is doing awesome.

This is not a big mana deck...I can turn 3 a colossus or drop a finks...that helps me stay even in the game until the big guys come in...this deck will put the brakes on other decks causing them to overextend...I prefer playing my own decks to net decking but thats just me...So far any solid pro deck ive seen will fall to my deck so Im happy.
