- List was not accurate due to copy/paste error. Has now been fixed, and is accurate.
- Rhys the Redeemed would be nice, but so far I haven't felt like I have encountered too many situations where he'd turn a losing board state into a winning one. In other words, he'd only do good work when my deck was already running well.
- This deck NEEDS haste enablers. Fires, Sarkhan, etc.

- Kiki-Jiki and Trostani make a formidable pair.
- Glare of Subdual is supposed to be a "fair" version of Opposition, but even Glare feels borderline unfair in this deck. May wind up being a "social contract" cut later, but for now it's one of the best cards in the deck. 
- Ezuri's Predation has already won me a few games. I'm pretty sure I've won every game in which I've cast it so far.
- The two cards you most want to see in an opening hand are Hardened Scales and/or Bloom Tender.
- Tempt with Discovery was just a way to find Cradle, but so far I've had at least one opponent take the offer every time, so I usually get Cradle and at least one other land - they all know if they say "no", I'm at least going to get Cradle anyway, so they're already so far behind the second and third lands I get after Cradle just don't make much difference.
