This started out as a A Land Divided meme deck. Some tweaks before the expansion made it decent on ladder, but after a few of the new cards from the new expansion and changes to go along with them it now wins consistently.

Win condition is the same as Doomcrag Warrior:
1. Use low cost creatures to make trades with your opponent.
2. Once you have several creatures in your discard pile, use Journey to Sovngarde, then Tullius' Conscription when your board is mostly empty.

While Doomcrag Warrior was hit hard by the nerf to Namira's Shrine and Namira's Disciple, this deck relies more on using guards, removal and healing to stay alive until you find Journey and Conscription rather than cycling through your deck as fast as possible to find the necessary cards you need to win the game.

I've done well with it against most match ups, but if you're going up against a hyper aggro deck that just goes face and you don't get a good starting hand you're probably going to lose. Many times though as long as you don't break any of their runes you can come back even if your opponent gets you down to single digit health.

What would recommend in place of A Land Divided? It's a card I don't have and I wasn't sure how important it really is to the deck. Maybe triple up on the Ebonheart Oracles? Or maybe more Dawn's Wraths? Not sure.

Honestly it's going to be difficult to make the deck work without A Land Divided because each one makes 4, 2 cost creatures that can then be used with the Journey/Conscription combo. I would advise you to be cautious if you decide to craft the card though as it is not widely used, is generally considered bad in most decks, and is really only useful in decks like this that center around it and other cards like it. If you don't want to craft them I would probably just replace each A Land Divided with one of each of your suggestions as they could both help you out of bad situations at different stages of the game.

Thanks, appreciate the response! It sounds like they are pretty essential, I think I'll just skip the deck until I have leftover gems and no other cards I've been wanting to craft, at the moment I can't craft them unfortunately!
