I really like epic struggle, but if you want that to be your wincon you need to have more token producers, maybe something like Ant Queen to spit out some tokens.

I was also thinking today, i feel like the deck needs some more passive mana sink such as possibly ant queen just so if you have any extra mana you can dump it in something

All creatures with multikicker and kicker would be great here, as well as mana sinks like Ant Queen and the like

Yeah those enchantments would help to make more immediate use of your mana. You don't play anything in your first main-phase, attack and get a lot of mana, then in your second main-phase you cast a hydra with all your mana and immediately get to fireball someone! Otherwise you just end up passing the turn and getting your creature Doom Blade-ed or something.

Another option would be to put in mana-sinks. For example:

Rhonas the Indomitable and Nylea, God of the Hunt enable to to sink the mana generated during the attack step to pump your attackers, even after your opponent decides his blocks to mess up combat math.

Token producer sinks let you use the mana to make blockers, which then attack next turn to continue the cycle! You can choose creatures like Ant Queen, Tilonalli's Summoner, and/or relatively more resilient options like Centaur Glade, Myr Matrix, Dragon Roost (last one may be too slow though!).

xaarvaxus Thanks! Great suggestions.

I have already removed Knight of the Reliquary.

And you're 100% right - Glowrider does not belong here. I'm not sure what I was thinking in keeping it.

As for Ant Queen & Soul of Theros, I am cutting both. I think my original plan that included them is long gone. On that note, I'll also be cutting Fleetfoot Panther. Wolfbriar Elemental is also getting the ax.

I am adding Beast Whisperer and considering Knight of Autumn.

Thanks for all of the suggestions.

No Primal Surge? This deck seems primed for it.

Almost all of your cuts will probably come from creatures and I think you should prioritize ones that don't have an ETB, ie: Ant Queen & Soul of Theros. I'd cut some of your 'bounce your own creature' ETB's, Fleetfoot Panther and Whitemane Lion just aren't exciting creatures and they usually aren't things you'll want to grab off Genesis Wave

Knight of the Reliquary doesn't have a lot of targets to fetch and won't get huge quick as the deck looks like it will be keeping land in play and not a lot will hit the graveyard other than via the Knight's own ability. Maybe cut your worst mana dork?

Glowrider seems a bit out of place here. Probably not bad if you do hit it but its not really a theme/focus of the deck. Gigantomancer is expensive and fragile. Luminarch Ascension also seems a bit misplaced as it feels more of a pillowfort card to me. Wolfbriar Elemental won't do anything early or off Genesis Wave so I'd cut it as well.

Beast Whisperer is important redundancy to go with Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage as this will probably be your most consistent form of card draw. Knight of Autumn seems like a good fit in here as well. Sorry to suggest new cards when you're looking to make cuts...

You also have more hubs that you could flag so that more people will come across your deck while searching; 'Selesnya', etc

Cards I'm thinking about putting on my chopping block.

That is 1 removal 1 non-combat based damage 2 token generators and 1 life gain.

Cards I'm interested in.

So far your main game plan seems to be a split of Multani voltron and a tiny sprinkle of landfall effects. Since you are already planning on ramping to increase Multani's power, why not include a big enough force of stompy green creatures?

Cards like Arbor Colossus, Ant Queen, Thragtusk, Endbringer, Hydra Omnivore, Silvos, Rogue Elemental, Elderscale Wurm, Rampaging Brontodon... just adding a decent number of these would help diversify your angle of attack.

You could also include some X-spells as late game haymakers. Gelatinous Genesis, Genesis Wave, Squall Line and Hurricane (You'd probably be safe if you have cards like Miren, the Moaning Well with your commander, of course you should have Life from the Loam to recur it!).

This looks really strong! Only slots that might be room for upgrades would be Ant Queen, Selesnya Charm & Utopia Sprawl.
