If Wrenn And Six pushes X/1 creatures too far out of favor, Dryad Militant may leave the deck. If that happens it may finally be time for Call Of The Herd to shine, a card I've wanted to cast in this deck for quite some time.
Quote from TheGameCritique »Looking back at this deck now that the bannings have taken place and the metagame has shifted to be a little bit slower. YouTube dropped this video in my recommendations. The deck is based on the previous meta and looks sub optimal in a few ways, (Noble Hierarch?), but having watched the matches, one change seemed worth trying out and testing.
Instead of choosing between Aspect of Hydra and Blossoming Defense as the flex slot, it drops Rancor completely and runs a full compliment of Aspects and still has room for Blossoming Defense as Vines 5 through 6.
There are other changes that I see the standard Stompy deck making that might mean this change wont work so well, like dropping Steel Leaf Champion in favor of lowering the average casting cost of the deck. Not running Barkhide Troll as it was recording before M20 releasing. Running 6 Canopy lands, which seems was a short lived fad if this thread is any indication.
But I'm curious if Aspect of Hydra replacing Rancor is a viable strategy, given how often Aspect can close the game and Rancor doesn't have the same large bodies it needs to help punch through.

makes a late game eone relevant check.
to be honest this is going to see a lot of play both standard and modern probably worth picking up a playset if you can find them under $3 at any point.
