This deck got me to godrank starting from rank 5. It performs well against rush if you get the right creatures/buffs and is (somewhat) resistant to red burn (50/50 in that match up).
It is a midrange deck so you can’t stall for too long or a late game deck will eventually steamroll you.
In your first hand you ideally want the Sagami Warrior, he’s is THE BEST turn 1 collector in the game because its cost innificient to nuke him early on. However if you don’t get him then you can use the Long-Horned Yak or Taiga Explorer, but they can be risky vs red (if you are vs red then either buff them or make sure Taiga Explorer comes down with 2 forests). You can often play a early collecting Rakoan Raveller against a blue or green, but if you’re facing red or yellow it will need pre-emptive buffs to survive.
If you have a good couple collectors in your first hand (EXAMPLE: Sagami Warrior + Long-Horned Yak) then don’t throw away stuff like Emerald Salamander or Deepwood Stalker because they are great at gaining/maintaining tempo and you don’t need to fish for your collectors)
The Path To Paradise is an invaluable tech because it gives you a new land and a free +2 attack to Long-Horned Yak or Rakoan Raveller, alternatively it can summon a Crackthorn Beast 1 turn earlier or get a very nice position for your Emerald Salamander (and gives him 4/5 statline which is WAY better than 2/5)
I must say that this deck has done very well against all the yellow decks I have been seeing on the ladder of recent.
