Deck Description

Inspired by thrashtastical's Whambam! deck

I decided to give some thought as how I could make it more evil. Here is how my deck is different:

1. Gave deck green creatures with hexproof so It would be more difficult for my opponent to destroy my green creature in response to my sacrificing it to Natural Order.
2. Put in Allosaurus Shepherd to help force through casting of Natural Order and Defense of the Heart and Hexproof creatures.
3. Put in Gilded Drake to combo with Emrakul, The Aeons Torn so when Defense of the Heart goes off I can remove a potential death touch blocker to Emrakul.

How to Play

Plan A
1. Have 5 mana and Natural Order and Allosaurus Shepherd in hand.
2. Cast Allosaurus Shepherd (can't be countered)
3. Cast Natural Order (can't be countered due to Allosaurus Shepherd ability)
4. Sacrifice Allosaurus Shepherd to Nature Order and put Progenitus into play.

Plan B
1. When you have 5 mana and a hexproof creature in play.
2. Use Pact of Negation or Allosaurus Shepherd to help force through Natural Order to put Progenitus into play.

Plan C
1. When opponent has 2 creatures and you have 5 mana and Defense of the Heart and Swan Song in hand or a Forbidden Orchard in play.
2. Use Forbidden Orchard to give opponent a 3rd creature while casting Defense of the Heart or use Swan Song to give opponent a 3rd creature by countering opponent's spell that tries to counter or remove Defense of the Heart.
3. If Defense of Heart is still in play during your next upkeep sacrifice Defense of the Heart and put Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Progenitus into play unless opponent has a death touch creature in play then put Gilded Drake into play instead of Emrakul and steal opponent's death touch creature to your side.

Deck discussion for Natural Defense Deck

Couple of things to note, a) 8 tropical islands and 8 misty rainforests b) some number of swan songs/ veil of summers should probably be swapped with ponder/preordain to boost consistency early game and c) Allosaurus Sheperd is a really strong green creature that can force through your important green spells and is a body for natural order.

Wow, was I asleep when checked this. Lands are fixed now. Great call on Allosaurus Shepard. Not so sure about cutting Swan Song it is a great way to giving opponent a creature and helping push thru spells, but with Allosaurus Shepard added maybe its not so key a card.

I've always liked swan song as a counter-spell! It works very well for your deck when you need to play and sac defense of the heart. I use swan song in my modern cheerios deck, and it is a game winner for me, if they go to counter grapeshot :)

And in a pinch swansong can counter your own stuff to produce a 2/2 on your side.
