Deck discussion for Bant Investigation

Hi! Investigation is something I have played against several times.

On the face of it, your deck appears stronger than the one i typically face.

At the heart of it, the goal is to defeat your opponent with overwhelming creatures. The difficulty comes in the Investigation mechanic, which can chew up mana on converting clues to draw cards instead of using that mana for creatures. Tamiyo's Journal is awesome. My friend doesn't have that card I think, so I haven't seen it in action, but seems to somewhat solve the mana issue I just mentioned.

Bloodbriar fits perfectly with your concept! That could get huge! Its somewhat similar, but Undergrowth Champion could get similarly huge. Not sure if that is standard legal. Also, with all these clues being generated, perhaps Dispatch or Dispense Justice (or another Metalcraft card) could help with creature control. Now we are definitely veering away from Standard, so I will end here.

Hope something in my ramblings helps! Though it is apparent to me that you already have a clue.
See what I did there?

Thank you for your input! I really needed a little nudge with this deck. I didn't even realize an investigation deck was a thing whilst I was making this, and was trying to make it as "playable" as possible. I will look into adding some ways to deal with creatures as you suggested.

Immediately after reading you joke my friend and I yelled and high fived each other because just the night before we had been making those exact jokes.
That made our day :)
