Anafenza, the Foremost Discussion
2 weeks ago
You might want to change Winding Constrictor it seems like your deck doesn't do a whole lot with counters. I'd say replace it with Anafenza, the Foremost since she still works with Collected Company, has a big body, she can grow other creatures and shuts down an opponents graveyard!

I have to main things I think this list could improve on.
The first thing is the lack of ramp and the second thing is the lack of a seriously good early game. And i think there are some cards that can solve one of these problems and some cards that can even solve both. Gyre Sage ramps a lot in a deck relying on heavy-hitters and can sometimes even get in itself and Shaman of Forgotten Ways pushes out your 7-drops on turn 4 while providing a one-card-lategame-kill.
Cards like Managorger Hydra and Primordial Hydra can come out on turn 3 and are serious threats just a short time later. Anafenza, the Foremost hates on some of your opponents while also riding in along the assault. Vinelasher Kudzu can even hit the battlefield on turn 2. In addition to these cards I would just throw in Tainted Strike, Rubblehulk, Temur Battle Rage and Grafted Exoskeleton to end games quicker.
These would be my suggestions to start to make the deck more of a real threat to the other players before they really can start to deploy their gameplan. :) I hope they are of some use to you. :)

I like this version better. Turn 3-5 kill might be a bit questionable at the moment though. Frankly i think the deck would be stronger as a midrange one rather than an ultra aggressive one. If that's something you're set on i'd double down on the aggression and have 4x Strangleroot Geist and 4x Servant of the Scale
As for cuts i think i had to cut anything here's what i'd cut and why:
Mer-Ek Nightblade in an ideal world your things would be better anyways
Centaur Battlemaster a bit on the slower side and doesn't have as evasion. He ends up being a beating if they can't answer it but you said in your description you want to make it more aggressive and this guy won't come down until turn 5 at the earliest with no mana acceleration
cut 1 copy of Corpsejack Menace good card but he's 4 mana and you don't want too many in your opening hand
If the plan is to win quickly Bramblewood Paragon might be better than Tuskguard Captain as you won't be activating outlast much. Then again the 2drop slot on your curve is pretty full already so i could see the argument for keeping tuskguard.
I'd keep Anafenza, the Foremost to the sideboard. She utterly destroys graveyaard decks if they can't deal with her but your mana base is a bit awkward and getting all 3 colors quickly might be awkward.
In the current version i'd probably replace the burst of speeds as well. They're nice but if you want to win faster i think you can put in some of the other cards i mentioned.

I would go for a sort of mono-green stompy build. You can find a rpimer here. Usually these lists are mono-green. But they certainly do not have to be! Creatures that would fit the theme that I can think of off the top of my head are Experiment One, Avatar of the Resolute, Winding Constrictor, Strangleroot Geist, Narnam Renegade, Scavenging Ooze, Young Wolf, Aspect of Hydra, Rancor, Anafenza, the Foremost, Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Shinewend (excellent sideboard tech), and Woodland Wanderer.

So, I have the budget (decks will still be quasi-budget ~$10 cards) to make another deck and need help deciding whom to choose. I already own some of the most expensive staples in the decks listed.
Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper Goblin Tribal: it's not Wort bc my buddy runs her and Krenko is in my Purphoros deck. offers a lot of thing unavailable to . The general helps persuade would-be boardwipes. Shattergang Brothers is better off as a build-around. Example: Sek'kuar's Sacrificial Horde
Doran, the Siege Tower: I'm avoiding Abzan goodstuff.dec and voltron. Simple, play big butts and swing while locking down the board via Crackdown/Meekstone/Marble Titan ect. One sided boardwipes also help punch through. The taste of vanilla critters leaves me apprehensive. Example: Doran Smash and Control
Anafenza, the Foremost or Ghave, Guru of Spores: +1/+1 counters. Perhaps some Hydra fun. Yes, I've looked at Abzan quite a bit lately. Probably not the broken combo route with Ghave. Tokens do interest me but I'm not going to use Doubling Season, too expensive.
Flanking "tribal." It's more like a knight tribal deck considering most things with flanking are knights. I threw this list together in like 20 minutes and was something I thought of a long time ago. So real rough sketch. List: Flanking Tribal
Last but not least spider tribal with Ishkanah, Grafwidow

Some things I noticed while looking at the deck:
You don't have that many red cards, and the only one that stands out to me as being really good is Voltaic Brawler. I would consider cutting red, for another color like black. If you play black you get Anafenza, the Foremost, Warden of the First Tree, Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, and Fatal Push.
I would add Tireless Tracker to the sideboard, because it wins grindy matchups, and is a human, and clues trigger revolt.
Sorry if that was too many words, but I just typed literally everything I thought of when I saw your deck. In any case, the deck looks really cool, and I look forwards to seeing what you decide to do with it.

I like Anafenza, the Foremost as your commander because she shuts down eggs and Jarad by herself. You can add cards from MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Control Cards to also shut down Baral and other control decks. In addition, you can play cards from MagicalHacker - List of All "Tuck" Cards and MagicalHacker - List of All Creature Removal Cards to always be ready for him.
Granted, if successful, he will have to adapt, prompting you to adapt again, but such is the wonderful ebb and flow of commander.
