Went 3-0 (unfortunately there were only 3 rounds this time) on local, beating Eldrazi Stompy, B/W Tokens(ish) and UR Delver.

Slight changes to the board since last time: doubled up on Pontiff, and swapped a couple Thorns for Glowriders. The added body is relevant, and so is the interaction with cavern (which makes it the choice over vryn wingmare). The extra mana is fine as it is usually the turn 2 play, after a chalice or thalia on 1, and on some occasions multiple thorns would interfere with eachother.
