do you like FREE STUFF? (2 CMC avg Aluren combo) is my version of this deck! We have different builds - I focused on more of a toolbox creature build. But I will say that I'm running 1x Fairgrounds Warden for hate pieces and I love it; I'm also really liking Winds of Rebuke and Silence as protection cards. Winds of Rebuke especially has impressed me, for such an unassuming card. Sometimes you just need to get Spirit of the Labyrinth off the table to combo, and with all the top-of-deck tutors (Worldly Tutor, Vampiric Tutor) it has random value as well.
Also, Containment Priest. Soooo good against so many strategies.
Finally, I recommend Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies as a backup combo (into draw-deck with Thrasios and infinitely large Ballista) instead of Aetherflux Reservoir because it doesn't require Aluren to go off and goes off through ETB hate, too.
Glad other people are playing Aluren combo in EDH! It's so fun.

Hey there, I decided to go ahead and review your deck already!
I feel like there are some things missing, mainly Eternal Witnessand Great Oak Guardian. I know that they both are not druids, but I feel like they add a lot to the deck, and they provide with victory lines without even needing the gods to pump and attack like you mentionned before, and they are a lot less dead in the deck that the gods.
First of all, Great Oak Guardian would go infinite with Temur Sabertooth, letting you generate infinite mana from your Druids and draw your entire deck from a draw engine like Soul of the Harvest, Primordial Sage, Zendikar Resurgent, Recycle, Lifecrafter's Bestiary or Glimpse of Nature. After that, you would have infinite mana and your entire deck in your hands, so you now need a way to win.
Eternal Witnessand Somberwald Stag comes in here. First of all, she would be really great as graveyard recursion (she is not a staple for nothing, she is a must include in every green deck IMO, especially mono-green). Then, once you have your entire deck in hands with infinite mana, you could cast Beast Within to kill every permanent on your opponents side, getting it back from the graveyard by bouncing Eternal Witness, then keep on recurring Somberwald Stag (on a side note, this thing can help you kill Linvala, Keeper of Silence if you have too and is easier to tutor for green since it is a creature) to kill every 3/3 beasts yout opponents control, so they would all be left with nothing on the battlefield, not even lands. Most opponents will simply stop playing at that point, but if any one just wants you to keep on playing, thinking you will die from drawing next turn, you simply have to cats Green Sun's Zenith, fail to find, then shuffle it back in your deck (it will be the only card left in your deck). Next turn you draw GSZ and do the same, attacking them with all your creatures until they are dead (or until they realize they won't be able to do a thing).
Speaking of GSZ, you should also add Dryad Arbor in place of a forest, since GSZ + DA is a great turn 1 ramp to be able to cast Seton on turn 2.
You were talking about a Tangleroot+ Cloudstone Curiocombo... But have you noticed that Cloudstone Curio alone with two small druids and a draw engine will draw your entire deck? You don't even need Tangleroot, since you can draw your entire deck, cast any spell to untap all of your creatures (also cast Concordant Crossroads if you need to) to generate more mana, then win by the way I have written above.
Some great draw engines are also missing from your deck, such as Regal Force, which again is really good with the bouncing provided by Temur Sabertooth. You also have some strange and dangerous card choices: Food Chaindoes help you casting creatures, but at the cost of exiling your druids... You can't abuse it like other combo decks, and I feel like it is not a good fit for what you are trying to achieve here. Also, be careful with Aluren. It can let your opponents play creatures at instant speed too, and it could easily backfire. I feel like you have enough small creatures that can cast themselves (with the ability of your commander) that this is not really needed in here. I see why you included it, but I would remove it, since it is not really needed and can backfire.
TLDR; Here are the changes I would recommend:
Dryad Arbor in
Replace forests by Snow-Covered Forest

The problem with all those cards is that they only work when Aluren is already out. Their contribution without it is very limited or downright nonexistent. This is especially true for noncreature cards in Recruiter lists, since the main tutor only finds creatures, so they have to carry most of the deck's weight. If you're running red, Ghitu Slinger is a good choice; useful against many threats like Insectile Aberration, Dark Confidant, Young Pyromancer and the like (and especially against Magus of the Moon), and with Aluren it's a kill condition.
Genesis Chamber looks interesting, it may have potential against control decks. Could be a nice sideboard card in the right metagame. Sadly I've never tried it.

I notice you have Karmic Guide + Reveillark (I use this in Kaalia of the Vast Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH, but I use it with Goblin Bombardment. I can't seem to see a sac-outlet to utilize the combo, maybe Greater Good, the Reveillark will net you a card, but the Karmic Guide will cost you a card, but you could in theory, unburial every single 2 or less power cat to the battlefield with the Reveillark LTB trigger, and tutor through the library to find some type of wincon, maybe a Triumph of the Hordes or something? Do you have a way to abuse the synergy there?
I like the 35 lands, through testing, I've also arrived at 35 is the correct number for Arahbo, Roar of the World
I like that you can Green Sun's Zenith a Dryad Arbor (Potentially on your upgrade list), but when you draw it, it will have summoning sickness so basically the same as an enters tapped land (can't be used the turn it enters), that downside makes it less viable in my opinion anyway.
I'm still struggling with my cats, I really want a "cat" based combo, just can't find any that are truly viable. Figured out one with Temur Sabertooth, but it's not good. I put Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder in because of the life gain / Felidar Sovereign but Spike Feeder on his own is just not a good draw. I have the creature tutors, so it's not impossible, but it's not a cat combo. I feel like Whitemane Lion should have something but so far nothing good I can come up with. Aluren is a good enabler but has terrifying downside. Maybe something with Cryptolith Rite or Felidar Guardian

Meren is my fave commander, definitely some interesting ideas im gonna consider stealing for my deck!
Considering the number of low cmc creatures you have, you could consider Aluren, combine that with Endless Cockroaches and Zulaport Cutthroat + a sac outlet, and it's a win, if you arent averse to going infinite. It will depend on your meta though, as it's a global effect.
Seeing as you have Protean Hulk and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, you could consider Walking Ballista if you can find space for it.If you have a sac outlet, sac the hulk, get mikaeus + ballista, ballista dies, comes back with a counter, remove it to ping someone, sac it, and repeat.I'm personally not a fan of the combo, but it's definitely worth considering.
Hopefully some of those suggestions were useful.

No. When you cast a spell without paying it's mana cost, you still have to pay manditory additional costs, such as the Commander Tax, and still get to pay optional additional costs, such as Kicker. This is important for casting something like Fling, where if you didn't pay the additional cost the spell would not be able to do anything. Because Aluren allows you to cast Omnath, Locus of Mana as though he had flash, you are able to use your floating mana to pay the commander tax before it empties from your mana pool however.
