I love your deck man! Have my own Mayael deck as well, though im not really playing it right now since my friends would immediately try to kill me when I brought it out! Also, I didn't even know Ancient Ooze even existed! Such a bizarre card!

I have a couple of suggestions if I may! I love mono-green decks. While not budget, my Omnath, Locus of Creature Ramp is my favorite deck.

I have a few suggestions for beatsticks: Colossus of Akros (my favorite Magic card), Ancient Ooze, Bellowing Tanglewurm, and Thunderfoot Baloth are some great low cost options

Some other cards maybe to look at: Whispersilk Cloak, Nature's Lore, Somberwald Sage, and maybe through in a Worldspine Wurm if you can find something to replace it with that keeps your total deck cost down.

Consider me overboard for giving you more suggestions but I have a soft spot for selvala. When I first started playing commander selvala was my first deck. It was a crappy deck but I made it better over some time.

Anyways some other cards that I went home to look up and find in decks/binders you might want to look at

Growing Rites of Itlimoc I finished opening a booster box of ixalan and I pulled this. I put this in my tribal elves deck but im not sure how it would do here. try it out maybe it will be good

Asceticism The problem with playing against control decks is that they often kill/take your biggest threats on the board. but having this prevents it. and if someone board wipe you can regenerate them

Praetor's Counsel in commander many people will have boardwipes. Many will manipulate your hand/deck. this card ensures that whatever you lose comes right back and you can draw as many cards as you want

Triumph of the Hordes this is pretty much an instant win in most cases. Give all your 10/10 and 12/12 another +1/+1, trample, and infect...goodnight

Shamanic Revelation draw a bunch of cards, gain a bunch of life, seems dec :D

Craterhoof Behemoth Another one of those game winning cards. if you have a 12/12, all your other creatures get 12/12 and trample...goodnight

Hydra Omnivore overall board damage

Worldspine Wurm 15/15 trampler turn into 3 5/5 tramplers

Sylvan Primordial tutor for lands and get rid of opposing threats

Ancient Ooze not a big creature but it can destroy your opponents major threats

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon Good board removal overall with low cost threats and can get rid of chump blockers. And can refill your hand while playing your biggest threats

Collective Voyage fun card to play. search for an abundance of lands while playing kind of a group hug early on. These kinds of things make people wanna target you less so you can build up without having to mostly worry about an enemy on your back

See the Unwritten freecast a card from the top 8 of your library

Burgeoning good way to dump out your lands early on

Early Harvest I was comparing this with omnath and i realized that this can be a big threat if omnath is on the board. if you decide not to run omnath i would not run this but just a neat little combo

Ground Seal Great if your playing against reanimator. just shuts them down

Spring Cleaning one of my most favorite decks that i play with currently is a karametra enchantress deck. it is very prison control heavy and filled with enchantments. so cards like this can really ruin my day. just kinda figure out who plays what at your table

Genesis Wave if you build up a lot of mana, you can cast this with x being 10 and can usually get 3-5 things out. even if it is not as high as 10, it is still a good card

Hope these cards will help you to. If you want to swap out some cards, feel free to ask what to swap i might help

It's a good start. Removal in green is very hard to find so I like the small touches.

However, something about commander is you always want to have some sort of interaction with your general. It's certainly not necessary but with Multani, I think it's more fun. If you get some card draw in your deck, it would work really well with him.

Try Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Collective Unconscious, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Glimpse of Nature, Heartwood Storyteller, Fecundity, Primordial Sage, Regal Force, Rites of Flourishing, Shamanic Revelation, Soul of the Harvest, Triumph of Ferocity or Zendikar Resurgent.

Another important thing in commander is a solid mana base. Running 38 Forests is not all bad but you want some more interaction with your deck. Oran-Rief, the Vastwood and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would go really well in your deck. You might also want to consider a Sol Ring and Gilded Lotus because those are commander staples.

Now, what to cut.

Let's start with creatures. One thing you have to think about when casting any kind of spell in a commander game is, "Is this spell worth the mana cost?" and "Does this spell have any kind of interaction in my deck?".

In my opinion, these are the creatures you need to cut. To the right of each, I will put some substitutes:

Ancient Ooze

Ancient Silverback

Awakener Druid

Bloodbriar

Crocodile of the Crossing

Duskdale Wurm ... Pelakka Wurm

Emperor Crocodile

Nessian Asp

Pathbreaker Wurm ... Nylea, God of the Hunt or Brawn or Thunderfoot Baloth or even Primal Rage

Plated Crusher

Prized Unicorn

Pouncing Cheetah

Quilled Slagwurm

Ridgescale Tusker

Scaled Behemoth

Shoe Tree ... This is illegal in commander.

Skysnare Spider

Woodborn Behemoth

Yavimaya Ancients

Yew Spirit

A lot of the creatures you have just don't have much synergy in your deck. Cut them and try out the other recommendations I've given you thus far.

Other cards to cut with recommendations:

Call of the Herd ... Not really worth it unless you're running a token deck which you are not.

Prey Upon ... It's just not very good in commander. Try Ulvenwald Tracker

Might of Old Krosa ... Meh. Try Giant Growth

Shed Weakness ... Unnecessary. Again. Giant Growth

Genju of the Cedars

Gift of Paradise

Living Terrain

Sheltered Aerie

Trial of Strength

Zendikar's Roil

TL;DR I like your deck. It's a good first time commander deck. Try to cut some of the creatures out that don't have any synergy with it. Card draw would go well with your deck. Mono green always has ramp.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Welcome to the format.

I can see not using Ixidor, Reality Sculptor in this deck...maybe but not using Ixidron just seems crazy...

...I love how you have Scornful Egotist labeled as "pure unbridled value." If you or anyone else reading this isn't familiar, it was printed in Scourge, as was Rush of Knowledge as was Ancient Ooze. (It was still bad even back then outside of limited, but at least this justifies its existance, sort of.)

anyways your decklist is entertaining as all hell +1, hf & gl.

Here's a list of things that could work, I don't know if they are too expensive, but ill leave out the expensive ones I know of.Krosan Cloudscraper, Deathcoil Wurm, Ghoultree, Gigantomancer, Liege of the Tangle, Living Hive, Patron of the Orochi, Sekki, Seasons' Guide, Symbiotic Wurm, Uktabi Kong, Verdant Force, Ancient Ooze, Elderscale Wurm, Engulfing Slagwurm, Giant Adephage, Moldgraf Monstrosity, Void Winnower, Pelakka Wurm, Regal Force, Fangren Marauder. I don't know if this helps you decide but these are some of the many possible high drop bombs you can include, this is only including 1 eldrazi so if you want to go that route here's plenty high drops there.
