How does this handle Flying? Is it all Marshal?

Save the Day seems like it would help with evasive units.

I've never tried Save the Day, but honestly I think it's a really good fit for this deck.
rowtuh Edited Eternal Version: 23.05.24
I observe a lack of healing, but my memory is of running a 1/4 flying lifesteal endurance and a 1/5 deadly with etb: +5 life. So maybe I'm not acclimated to the defensive strategy presented here.

Further, with all the "cost less" effects, this feels rather like combo. It doesn't seem very good at gumming up the board (no flying) and it doesn't seem very reactive (permafrost, marshal, and ... units?). Maybe building toward a combo mindset would be more appropriate, given how little interaction this version plays.

Edit: I've reasoned out some changes here, let me know which ones you've considered and/or tested.

Save the Day or Wasp could help give it an alternate angle to close the game.
Is Nahid's Distilation necessary with all the access to Chalice?

I so wanna add Replication Cell here (market)
BGray Eternal Version: 23.05.24
I really like that card, but I'm not sure the synergy is strong enough. Maybe?

Have you ever found the lack of a dedicated wincon troublesome? Say you're fighting a midrange deck that has inevitability like 6 cost Svetya.
BGray Eternal Version: 23.05.10
Kind of. Wand is a decent win condition, but I'm also considering Svetya in market or main
