I like mirrian crusader but wouldn't two Dungrove Elder's be better. Mirrian should go in sideboard. The Dungrove seems to be more of threat against most decks. While crusader's a really good card he is easy to answer. Other than that the deck looks real good. Cool

Dungrove seems week imo, running 8 forests your avg rate would only be like 3-4 forests by the end of a game, and a 3/3 or 4/4 hex proof vanilla creature isn't that threatening, and he has no evasion. mirran crusader is way better, basically has hex proof in this meta, is good vs. most tier 1 and tier 2 deck, only exception being RDW (this case grove would be better), the crusader has evasion in the form of protection. you could always lower your curve and include things like hero of bladehold. Without playing the deck it doesn't seem focused enough to either out aggro or out control any deck. i generally like the idea of naya/ramp pod being more aggressive than the other pod variants.

Dungrove is not a week card its good early and late. I agree the evasion is really good. Everything that kills mirran doesn't kill dungrove. Plus even at a 3/3 or 4/4 the card is still a threat and it only gets stronger. Again mirran is a great card its just for this build i think when Kenny pods he wants more board presence over evasion.

I'm currently just kinda feeling it out, as with all pod decks the curve and tempo of the deck can't really be decided til you run it about 100 times. I really do appreciate the feedback though! The Dungrove and Mirran Crusader both start main board to fulfill the "Toolbox" mentality of the deck. If it's looking like I need to establish a threat early and am light on green vs. a random black match up then Crusader will obviously be my drop, while against rdw or some other removal variant Dungrove could be much better depending on my land drops. He may not even make the deck, just spitballing as it were. I'm looking to add Hero of Bladehold at least as a one drop cause she's amazing, and the curve may turn into Mausoleum Guard to Geist Honored Monk since it's such a strong combo play. Again, thanks for the feedback! I love to hear what other players think of the deck!
