So I'm putting this up more to represent the mighty brostorm on our humble forums than anything else. I've been in lock step with the official primer barring budget concerns for about 2 years now, and while I feel I can pilot the deck well, I'm not reinventing any wheels here. If you'd like to see the official primer written by better minds than me, it is here:

Anyway, here's what I'm playing:


Approximate Total Cost:

So there's a few differences between my list and the offical one. They are as follows, and should not be seen as 1:1 comparisons.
Sylvan safekeeper → Concordant Crossroads
Why: I like safekeeper and all, but a) I don't own one right now and b) Crossroads is super clutch sometimes. I like it more than most of my other deviations, and it will probably be the last card I cut as I finish out the deck.
Survival of the fittest → Sylvan Tutor
Why: I don't own one, but it's on top of my list.
Gaea's avenger → Ravaging Riftwurm
Why: I don't own one and riftwurm accomplishes the same thing 90% of the time. If dockside combo remains prevalent, I'll get one.
Force of vigor → Walking Ballista
Why: I don't own one, but I gotta respect Ballista as a nice tidy wincon. Can be awkward with the null rod stuff though.
Mox Diamond → Mana Vault
Why: So I have an opinion on this beyond "I ain't got it". Mox diamond, despite its triple digit price tag, is pound-for-pound worse than Chrome Mox in terms of smoothing out early hands. Chrome Mox goes a long way to making one-land hands attractive, whereas mox diamond does not. Mox diamond, on the other hand, doesn't do a whole lot to fix 4-5 land hands either. Mana vault will do for now, I think. If I luck into one, it's welcome to live here. I'm not holding my breath or skipping meals in the mean time.
War Room → Ghost Quarter
Why: I don't know why I don't own this already, but I'll get one soon.
Gemstone Caverns → Forest
Why: I don't yet own it
Cavern of Souls → Forest
Why: I don't yet own it

Ideally, I will complete this deck by the end of 2021 and do away with this tawdry spoiler. Fingers crossed.
