The first time I played an earlier version of this deck, I won by feeding way too much mana into a Hydra Broodmaster to make 17 17/17 creatures and a 22/22 with haste on turn 4. In response I took out most of the good cards that allowed this: Concordant Crossroads, Guardian Project, Priest of Titania, Elvish Archdruid, and most of the rest of the permanent card draw other than Chulane. Now the deck just spins its wheels a lot instead of winning.
Chulane, Teller of Tales has gained a strong reputation for being super powerful, even by accident. Since I’m not interested in building a cEDH deck, I think I should limit its use to highly themed decks that need its ability to function at all, rather than trying to build around his abilities. Maybe I should’ve kept my thanksgiving deck together instead?
The point of this deck is: lots of mana ramp via dorks, and big fat X creatures. Having Haste makes this deck work much better; too much better, especially with Mobilize and Vitalize to untap all the dorks and use them again.
