I cant look at the updated version, since the download-links dont work for me.

Not sure why Survival of the Fittest is in the deck, cause its banned.

From the top of my head, here are some quick suggestions.

Against aggro, you can try to gum up the board and have _some_ form of lifegain:
Wall of Blossoms
Kitchen Finks
Spike Feeder
Obstinate Baloth
Wall of Mulch
Carven Caryatid
Sylvan Caryatid

More efficient removal also helps:
Fatal Push
Ghastly Demise
Abrupt Decay
Assassin's Trophy
Collective Brutality
Maelstrom Pulse

I wouldnt leave home without:
Inquisition of Kozilek
Hymn to Tourach
Liliana of the Veil

Some other cards I would consider to add:
Nihil Spellbomb
Hissing Quagmire
Yavimaya Elder
Reclamation Sage
Llanowar Elves, etc.
Zombie Infestation
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
Pulse of Murasa
Scavenging Ooze
Deathrite Shaman
more Fetchlands
Tireless Tracker
Sylvan Scrying

Cards I would consider to cut:
Skyshroud Poacher
Withered Wrech
Yavimaya Granger
Viridian Shaman
Survival of the Fittest
Squee, Goblin Nabob
Krovikan Horror
Stinkweed Imp
Golgari Grave Troll
Nantuko Vigilante
Ink-Eyes, Sertvant of Oni
Thrashing Wumpus
Nezumi Graverobber

These lists could go on and on.

Bottom line: without Survival - either because its banned or you simply dont draw it often enough - your situational cards will make it difficult for you. I would try to play more all-around good cards and if your recursion picks up, thats a nice bonus and gives you reach. Also, max-out on good disruption.

Changes to the present banned list, effective 04/15/2019:



Current watchlists:

Ban watchlist:                                                    
• Demonic Tutor
• Dig Through Time
• Entomb
• Mana Drain
• Scapeshift
• Tainted Pact
• Tolarian Academy
• Treasure Cruise
• True-Name Nemesis
Unban watchlist:                                                      
• Gifts Ungiven
• Skullclamp
• Umezawa's Jitte

Off the Unban watchlist:

After weighting up various arguments for and against the unban of Skullclamp, the Council has decided to lay the focus on Jitte as a potential candidate for the unban. Skullclamp neither got enough votes for an unban, nor enough votes for its Watchlist position, and also community surveys did not justify the idea of Skullclamp in the format. Should the request for the resumption of the discussions arise again, we ask for appropriate feedback and the participation in unbiased surveys around this card and will, if necessary, add it to the Unabn Watchlist again.

Other announcements:


We are aware that a Council member should have some example function in terms of visibility, teamwork, reliability and general interest across communities connected to the format. Therefore, we saw us forced to make internal changes in the Council and put our hopes in a new member. We thank Christoph for the many years of cooperation and want to introduce Max Hofer. Max has already prove himself at various tournaments and attracted attention with his open, friendly and interested nature. We look forward to the time together and warmly welcome him in the Council!

Some reserved list cards are going for absurd prices.

Allow x amount of recognizable proxies (color prints) in HL decks. This would attract new players to try the format, and maybe even encourages current/old players to become more active as they can play more decks.

Proxies at tournaments are no long-term solution to make the format more attractive for new players in my eyes. The "absurd" prices of some reserved list cards, is just one of a few reasons why more and more players are not attracted to highlander anymore (exception Berlin).
A bigger reason for me is the current highlander meta. It is just too similar with competitive Commander (Combo and/or Blue-Based Decks), players are of course more attracted to an official than a self-made format which is kinda the same.
If I would be a Control- or Combo-Player I would ask myself "Why should I play Highlander? When Commander has the bigger community".

In my opinion to attract new players to the format, the meta needs to be redefined to have something unique and special again.
As example there is no singleton format I know at the moment where aggressive decks have a shot (exception RDW in our format).

For me highlander was the most fun back in the days when decks like 'Naya Zoo', '5c Aggro', '4c Goodstuff', 'Bant Midrange', and so on where Top-Tier ... because these decks where mostly built for interaction and not a straight "unfair" gameplan.
We had some of those "unfair" deckstrategies back then too like 'Oath' and 'Stax' but they weren't as dominant as the oppressive decks these days.

We will see where the council will lead the format in the future by their bans and unbans.

This is outside of our area of responsibility and is (and will always be) the decision of the respective tournament organizer/ store owner. Many tournament organizers already allow the use of proxies for smaller tournaments and waive their sanctioning. For larger tournaments for which judges are used and a certain price payout is issued, however, this is much more difficult to implement, since a certain number and a certain quality must of course be verifiable, so that proxies are not a game advantage for the respective player (eg because they are feelable/ distinguishable or more difficult to identify for the opponent). On the other hand, of course, we do not want to encourage players to make and play counterfeits, but limit it to playtest cards. Nevertheless, proxies should still be an exception. Talk to your tournament organizer and explain the benefits of using proxies for him/ her and ask him/ her if he/ she would allow them for smaller tournaments.
