I've never strayed far from the original build of this deck. This is the 75 that took me to my first Game Day championship. The only real change in the MB is the addition of Rhonas. Sticking a Rhonas and Bristling Hydra on turns 3 and 4 made the win feel inevitable. Every creature is a threat.
I didn't get to try the cat-snake against control or Radiant Flames against zombies. Tears of Valikut did its job against Avacyn. Skysoverign was always welcome against planeswalkers. I didn't board in the Uncaged Fury or Fling, but they never felt necessary. Most often for games 2 & 3, I shuffled a few sideboard cards into the deck, then pulled the same ones out. I never felt outmatched.

Why on earth would they print either Giant Growth or Negate in EMA? I can see a lightning bolt reprint, but those other two cards are magnitudes lower on both power level, importance, and desirability.
