Just another direction for the deck:

// Lands
1 [SHM] Graven Cairns
1 [EVE] Cascade Bluffs
1 [EVE] Fetid Heath
1 [SHM] Fire-Lit Thicket
1 [SHM] Mystic Gate
1 [EVE] Rugged Prairie
1 [SHM] Sunken Ruins
1 [SHM] Wooded Bastion
4 [LRW] Vivid Grove
4 [SHM] Reflecting Pool
4 [CNF] Ancient Ziggurat
4 [CNF] Exotic Orchard

// Creatures
4 [CNF] Noble Hierarch
4 [ALA] Empyrial Archangel
4 [10E] Elvish Piper
4 [10E] Birds of Paradise
4 [CNF] Progenitus
4 [CNF] Maelstrom Archangel
4 [ALA] Mayael the Anima
4 [LRW] Elvish Harbinger
4 [ALA] Hellkite Overlord

// Sideboard
SB: 3 [SHM] Woodfall Primus
SB: 4 [MOR] Negate
SB: 4 [LRW] Burrenton Forge-Tender
SB: 4 [SHM] Guttural Response

I've been playing this thing for the last week and it seems to play alright. Doesn't fare too well against 5cc or bant agro but then again no deck I play ever does. Lands a turn 3 piper, maelstrom or mayael sans disruption most of the time. There seem to be better options out there though.

People complain that Standard is boring, and people criticize any attempt at a rogue strategy. Go figure.

My advice is ditch the slow black tutors for Ponder and Commune With Nature so you actually have a chance of landing Prog on turn 3 or 4 with either Piper or Dramatic Entrance. You'll still lose to Thoughtseize, but you'll be less of a sitting duck for aggro. Primal Command helps there too.
