What's a Sideboard?

How it Works

The main idea is two-fold. First, you have the big creatures as cannon fodder for the Kabooms! and Erratics, and then you also have the easy means of using them to stomp your opponent with all the easy uses to flip high costing morphers. The deck searching is to get the right card up top for the direct damage to use. I hope you like it, I am excited to try it out.

What do you think the best make-up of this deck is? The sideboard cards are all main deck possibilities and also, I am looking at attempting to get in some Wooded Foothills in the main deck but I don't know what to do to alter it.

The Ancient Ooze has its place in later games but the thing is, I don't know if I'll have a later game, it appears I'll be busy from the start and hope to kill before there is a need for turn 7 or so. It does have it's role in that it has a 7 mana cost so it is useful for the Erratic Explosion and the Torrent of Fire.

Also, which elves should I put ,the Birchlore Rangers or the Wirewood Elves? I've decided on splitting it 2 and 2 so that I can get mana regardless with the Wirewood but with the Birchlore and any other one, I can get any color. What do you think?

I was also thinking about the possible addition of Seedborn Muse but I'm not sure if it is worth it but it could be helpful for countering with the discombobulates. Also, if I should use it, what should I take out?

I am attempting to get this to be a great deck so help me to make this deck perfect. If possible I hope it will be tourney worthy at somepoint.

If you rate me I'll rate back, I promise!
