This started out as mostly a "Trade Binder ETB Pile" and ended up pretty fun. The general idea is to use and abuse ETBs. That abuse comes in the form of Searching / "Pod" effects that can tutor creatures to my hand or the battlefield. Then combine that with a reanimation package to get them back. Along the way, there are additional blink effects and recursion effects, and loops that can be made. There's a couple of infinite mana packages, using either Drake or Palinchron with Flicker cards + Witness/Archaeomancer or Deadeye Navigator. Payoffs are Duskwatch Recruiter and Walking Ballista.
Can definitely tune and tweak, but this is what I'm looking at for the moment. It's been fun in the two test games I've had and I look forward to tuning it up. (Also, Dual lands are proxies). I have never really played "green" decks before, so this is an adventure. I'm so used to playing combo or control decks, filled with bad cards that do nothing on their own. This has been a breath of fresh air by comparison.
