except that card is terrible. scute mob shouldnt be in here. yes he can grow to be a big threat, but if you cant protect him for the first few turns he is extremely vulnerable. also, if you draw him in the early game he is just a dead draw.

There are better U finishers. Sphinx of jwar isle and sphinx of lost truths are both much better than that. also, gigantiform is terrible. Yes, it can be tremendous. But if you ever try to play it against open mana youre getting yourself a quick 1 for 2. And, its a dead draw when you dont have creatures on board. Vines of vastwood also seems sub par.

Bottom line. You dont have enough things that affect the board. And you dont have enough creatures to force the opponent into slowing temp to allow you to alter combat with instants.

Either, go more creature based, or put in spells that affect the board.

RDW scoops to scute mob with a gigantiform on it.

if rdw cant deal with a 1/1 until after u put a gigantiform on it then they have bigger problems. gigantiform is aweful even more so with like 12-16 creatures that arent meant to attack or live through much removal. also y lotus cobra, no need to play ne thing sooner. just a way to soak up a disfigure or burst lightning. try some RDW or boros colored aggro.
