Casual 5CG

I must say, this is a very creative deck. Its a casual 5CG deck that has a lot of potential to be fun and competitive at the same time.

I have a medium sized collection of cards to work with and have lots of
people to trade with so i you want to change  any cards i should be able to
get them.

Mmmm.look at all that goodness.  The two problems I see are Too Many Cool Card syndrome and Too Many One Ofs syndrome.  Ill try and keep the same flavor, but expect a few changes. Birds of Paradise is a staple for all five color decks. Even though it cant attack and usually dies quite quickly, the long and short term advantages outwiegh their short term life span. Same with Utopia Tree.

4 Birds of Paradise
4 Utopia Tree
4 Blastoderm
4 Deranged Hermit
4 Avatar of Woe

4 congregate
3 seal of cleansing
1 Demonic Tutor

4 Recurring Nightmare
4 Survival of the Fittest
1 Squee, Goblin Nabob
1 Sol Ring

7 Forest
4 Elfhame Palace
4 City of Brass
5 Swamp
2 Plains
1 Kor haven
1 Maze of Ith

If this deck isnt a complete hybrid of casual and competitive, I dont know what is. Its all about making lots of Squirles, dropping big creatures, and gaining lots of life.  The best part is that no matter what happens, your creatures come back.  Put ten creatures into your graveyard to trigger Avatar of Woe? Fine, get Hermit/Recur going and put all your creatures back into play.

I tried to pick out the power cards you had listed so that you can continue to enjoy playing with expensive pieces of cardboard, and to make your opponents jealous (of course).  For those of us who dont have those kinds of cards, replace them with whatever you like.
