Anyone mind taking a look at this sealed pool for me and commenting on it? Should it have been Naya instead of Esper, could Master of Etherium work, was splashing the dragon worth it etc.

The deck just feels bad to me and got its ass handed to it on a platter.

You have some bombs to work with. Namely, Broodmate dragon.

I would have played jund and splashed white for O ring and resounding silence.

17 lands
3 good lands
1 Plains

1 Beetle
1 broodmate
1 fleshbag
1 kathari
1 bone splinters
1 Executioner's Capsule
2 Obelisks
1 O ring

Those are the cards already in your deck.

We need 14 more cards to complete the deck.

1 court archers
1 Cylian Elf
1 Dregscape Zombie
2 Iguanar
1 Ogre
1 Naya mage
1 Naturalize
1 Mosstadon
2 Resoundings
1 Rockslide
1 Thorn-Thrash
1 Stinger

The deck is more of an aggro deck. 2x Iguanar is fine even in the sealed format. Naturalize is very good as a 1 of in the maindeck. Infest would usually be an auto include, but this deck features mostly x/2 and its very bothersome if you can get little advantage from infest unless you wait.

I like the devour and you have a decent number of removal spells. You should be able to win all the games your opponents hiccup on mana. Good Luck in the rest of the season. If you wanted to stay a little more agrro I would go with only one obelisk (jund) I would keep keep welkin guide. I think this deck is lacking playables, but its solid in the aggro department. Sideboard cards include volcanic submersion, infest, mountaineers,

splashing broodmate is silly, you have to get insanely lucky to draw him, a green source and a red source in the same game.

I would do this

-the obelisks

+Vithian Stinger
+Resounding Thunder

And change the land around accordingly.

I agree with going jund. Your cards in that shard are just more powerful and your bombs are very very good.

Broodmate Dragon
Fleshbag Marauder
Court Archers
Cylian Elf
Dregscape Zombie
Hissing Iguanar x2
Naya Battlemage
Resounding Thunder
Rockslide Elemental
Thorn-Thrash Viashino
Vithian Stinger
Undead Leotau x2
Volcanic Submersion
Skeletal Kathari
Blister Beetle

Bone Splinters
Executioner's Capsule
Obelisk of Jund
Oblivion Ring

Savage Lands
Naya Panorama
Grixis Panorama

Some combination of those cards probably would work out well.
