Marcus, why do you like White over Black? Some explanation would be cool.

And Nick, 4 Drowned Catacombs with only 1 Island and 2 Swamp?

Elesh Norn over Massacre Wurm
Similiar ability but if you have to play it without Pod Massacre wurm is triple black.
Fiend Hunter, Sun Titan, are great cards and Archeon of Justice is a great card to pod out along with blade splicer poding out and leaving a 3/3 token. I would also add more Phantasmal Images and Metamorphs but im assuming you are not running them because you dont have more copies.

I love pod, and noticed a few things about the list that I would change. I would add some two drops, mostly in the form of viridian emissary. In BuG lists I would always always always run Glissa. She's a power house! You can drop her without pod on turn two most games easy. a 3/3 deathtouch first striker isn't a joke by any means. It's better than any crusader, and every time your opponent bins a creature you recur an artifact. I mean Wurmcoil -----> Sheoldred, sac a creature to Sheoldred, hi 18 power on the board. Glissa is insane in these lists. I've found in most of my pod lists the mana breakdown is something like 12 dual, 5-6 primary color (green), 3 secondary (blue), 2 tertiary (Black) for a total of 21-23 lands depending on your ramp and ability to produce and/or fetch lands up. Hope this helps!

Thanks for all the advice guys.
I like the idea of a Grave Titan but what would you suggest for a swap?

as i did for tyler, notes i took while looking at your list:

Note 1:
most powerful chain in BUG pod lists is:

skinrender -> banshee -> reaper of the abyss

this deck is missing the final component,

+1 reaper of the abyss

other inclusions:
- 1 spellskite
- 1 corrupter
- 1 wing splicer
- 1 deciever exarch
- 2 go for the throat
-4 drowned catacombs
+4 darkslick shores
+1 phantasmal image
+2 ponder
+3 viridian emissary
+1 grave titan ( if i counted right your list is off by one card, so you get to add this for free)

why these cards:
Darkslick shores: is better in this deck, as you will want to either play forest on turn 1 or a untapped blue source on turn 1 or 2. catacombs doens't let you do either and with only running 3 non basics that catacombs cares about it will proabably always come into play tapped.

Turn 1 =>Bird T2 =>catacombs into ponder + emissary, image on bird ->t3 slime!

phantasmal image: is a really good card, it kills any hex-proof legends you might need to remove, or can copy any of your fatties.

frost titan -> image -> image = game over

ponder: is needed to smooth out draws, and dig for pod

emissary: is really good in a aggro meta, such as manteca, it will usually trade with one of their guys + helps fix your mana so you can get triple black for your wurm late game

and well grave titan is sexy.

anyways list after those changes might look like this:

4 birds of paradise
1 lanowar elf
2 phantsmal image
4 viriden emssissary
3 phyrexian rage
1 skaab ruinator
1 entomb exarch
1 phrexian metamorph
1 skin render
1 solemn simulacrum
2 acidic slime
1 morbid banshee
1 frost titan
1 grave titan
1 reaper of the abyss
1 massacre wurm
1 sheorold

4 ponder
4 pods

4 darkslick shores
2 islands
2 swamps
8 forests
4 woodland cemetery
4 hinterland harbor

anyways hopes that helps, oh and some other creatures i looked at but without playtesting idk what you'd want to cut for them.

glissa (she rules the ground, gets back pods, shuts down humans, rdw, any titan, token.deck, tec)

more skinrender, if nothing else make sure there is 2-3 more in the SB

there i think im done now...not saying its prefect but might get you started on a more consistent deck.
