    Explorer - 5 Color Neoform Greasefang

    Getting me to Mythic this month was Greasefang!
    I got a little jammed up at Platinum, but powered through it.

    This is a 5 color list I saw somewhere online. I added Sheoldred and messed around with the mana base some.
    The Modern Tron adage of 'getting to mulligan' multiple times is true for this deck too. The deck is more consistent to combo by turn 3 than traditional three color Greasefang decks. It struggles against Spirits and is about 50/50 against UW Control. Probably 50/50 against Boros Heroic too.

    Deck
    1 Liliana of the Veil (DMU) 97
    3 Scrapwork Mutt (BRO) 164
    1 Guardian of New Benalia (DMU) 19
    3 Raffine's Informant (SNC) 26
    2 Satyr Wayfinder (BNG) 136
    1 Skyclave Apparition (ZNR) 39
    4 Greasefang, Okiba Boss (NEO) 220
    1 Raffine, Scheming Seer (SNC) 213
    1 Grisly Salvage (RTR) 165
    4 Thoughtseize (AKR) 127
    3 Neoform (WAR) 206
    1 Witherbloom Command (STX) 248
    2 Can't Stay Away (MID) 213
    3 Esika's Chariot (KHM) 169
    1 Skysovereign, Consul Flagship (KLR) 272
    4 Parhelion II (WAR) 24
    2 Adarkar Wastes (DMU) 243
    1 Brushland (BRO) 259
    1 Llanowar Wastes (BRO) 264
    1 Caves of Koilos (DMU) 244
    4 Aether Hub (KLR) 279
    4 Mana Confluence (JOU) 163
    2 Concealed Courtyard (KLR) 282
    2 Blooming Marsh (KLR) 280
    2 Breeding Pool (RNA) 246
    1 Boseiju, Who Endures (NEO) 266
    1 Underground River (BRO) 267
    1 Sheoldred, the Apocalypse (DMU) 107
    1 Botanical Sanctum (KLR) 281
    1 Hallowed Fountain (RNA) 251
    1 Godless Shrine (RNA) 248

    The deck got some new lands from ONE. And I added some Neoformable removal instead of cute stuff.

    Got Mythic again, last week or so. Minor changes:

    -1 Deputy of Detention
    +1 Skrelv, Defector Mite

    Deck still feels like it fills the Splinter Twin role in the format. If you can't disrupt me, I'mma kill you turn 4.

    I've gotten better at forcing through the combo against control. It's about patience and finding an opening, which doesn't come naturally to me.

    Re: Explorer - 5 Color Neoform Greasefang

    Updated list for anyone interested:

    4 Greasefang, Okiba Boss
    2 Raffine's Informant
    2 Scrapwork Mutt
    1 Guardian of New Benalia
    1 Likeness Looter
    2 Satyr Wayfinder
    1 Skyclave Apparition
    1 Deputy of Detention
    1 Sheoldred, the Apocalypse
    3 Neoform
    4 Thoughtseize
    2 Bitter Triumph
    1 Grisly Salvage
    1 Witherbloom Command
    1 Can't Stay Away
    1 Faithful Mending
    4 Parhelion II
    3 Esika's Chariot
    1 Skysovereign, Consul Flagship

    2 Seachrome Coast
    2 Hallowed Fountain
    3 Concealed Courtyard
    1 Godless Shrine
    2 Botanical Sanctum
    1 Breeding Pool
    2 Blooming Marsh
    1 Overgrown Tomb
    1 Darkslick Shores
    4 Aether Hub
    4 Mana Confluence
    1 Boseiju, Who Endures

    I haven't been playing this deck much in Ranked because Timeless has shifted my focus. But after achieving Mythic for the season, I revert back to this for Explorer events to grind out packs. The addition of Bitter Triumph has been an improvement. I would like to fit in 1 more, but two may be the correct number. I would also like to fit in a basic and a man-land, but that feels very difficult given how spread out my color needs are and how important it is to cast spells on curve.
