Suggestion taken :D. about this deck speed, maybe i end up adding some mana dorks like Arbor Elf, probably taking some copies of Kozilek's Predator and Kozilek's Channeler. in my tests many times i got a nice opening hand (the combo in the description), but a few times i was like pass, pass, pass... it could be nice to have something to do early.

Hi, can i suggest Prey Upon over Pit Fight? I think that costing one mana less compensate for not being castable with red mana. And can i ask how fast is the deck in the firsts turn? Does it suffers without something like Arbor Elf?

Nice deck going on here!

plus 1 from my side for sure :) Yeah, so let's get down to business. I love combo decks with low CMC, though I am not so much a fan of infinite combos - but who I am to talk with abzan company in modern and rhys the redeemed infinite combos in EDH.

So, what about replacing Arbor Elf with Crop Rotation? Helps to get the right utility lands in no time with that many tutors available in this decklist. Or cut one land. I mean, you have 37 lands while having a CMC of 2.48 and are playing just three colors. I guess you went down with CMC quiet a bit over time - maybe you didn't with the lands?

Then did you ever consider playing Holistic Wisdom as recursion? You got 23 instants, 37 lands and 17 creatures. Apart from just the obvious recursion you could play like Strip Mine several times a turn in combination with Azusa, Lost but Seeking/Oracle of Mul Daya/Exploration. Furthermore it's another ability you can use at instant speed and honestly, I am envious about your commander - she's just asking to trade unsuitable cards in hands with powerhouses in your graveyard ;)

Also taken exactly your commander's ability into account Commandeer might be something for you in order to steal problematic and important spells like let's say your enemies commander. I would sort out Spell Pierce as it doesn't do much in the late game and Commandeer can be played from turn 1 on just like Spell Pierce

Keep up your awesome work! cheers :)

Well - that's already all I got.

Bonfire of the Damned is a good sweeper. I'd also suggest Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl as mana dorks since they combo really well.

Besides flavor, Bow of Nylea ought to be included for the slew of effects it gives you. Blocking is now very undesirable for opponents, plus it shoots down smaller flying creature, and shuffles cards from your graveyard back into your library. Utility is everything in EDH.

Rishkar's Expertise is an insane EDH card that should be acquired while the price is still low. Draws you a crapton of cards, then you can play something from your hand with mana cost 5 or less, which potentially includes a card you just drew into.

Your list needs more mana dorks to get your bigger creatures out faster. I recommend Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves, but Arbor Elf and Fyndhorn Elves do the same thing.

Hydra Omnivore is a stellar card for when you're facing off multiple opponents; bully the player with the weakest board state to ensure everyone else will be clocking in 8 damage every swing.

Garruk's Packleader is a great way to keep your engine running, by maximizing off the creatures you're playing and drawing you into more big creatures.

Where's Acidic Slime? One of the best green cards in EDH for sure. Deathtouch + artifact/enchantment/LAND removal? Sign me up!

Genesis Hydra is a great two-for-one, lets you play something huge off the top of your deck when you've ramped enough, and sticks around as a pretty big creature.

Zendikar Resurgent is excellent for lategame gas, plus it makes your X-spell Hydras more insane.

To be fair, there are far easier, and less rule questioning, ways to get infinite mana than with Devoted Druid.

For instance both Sword of the Paruns and Umbral Mantle can make any of your high mana producers go infinite such as with Elvish Archdruid to name just one. But a cleverly placed Elvish Guidance can also go infinite just with either of the above artifacts and Arbor Elf.

Wirewood Lodge and something like your cradle, or even just Maze of Ith and a basic land (mid combat only on that one), are also able to go infinite with Argothian Elder, but I'll admit those might be a bit of a stretch to utilize. However it is technically more likely to be assembled due to green having land tutors, as opposed to artifact tutors.

Bare minimum you can throw in Ancestral Statue and have that Paradox Engine go infinite right? Though you may wish to include a Cryptolith Rite somewhere if you do.

I've been getting error messages trying to post a comment. It might be because it's to long so i'm gonna split it up.

Didn't hear back from you but i think this is the deck you wanted me to look at.

What i'm going to try to do is to take the cards in the deck and suggest better cards that are legal in modern while keeping the overall theme the same.

I'm not sure what your budget is so i'm just gonna start listing cards but i can tweak this to lower the cost if you want me too.

Elvish Mystic can be replaced by better manna dorks like Birds of Paradise or Noble Hierarch.

Cards like Market Festival generally arent great and its usually better to run more mana dorks instead. The one exception is if you run a playset of Arbor Elf but at that point i'd run Utopia Sprawl instead.

Path to Exile is some of white's best removal and is a lot better than Divine Verdict.

Hey! I'm pretty new to MTG, but I would love to give you suggestions, as I have a deck similar to this (on my profile), but doesn't have any saproling spawners other than 2 copies of Fists of Ironwood. My first and main suggestion is putting in Arbor Elfs instead of Explore and Rampant Growth because it also gives you extra mana for 1 mana and is a creature for Champion of Lambholt, Essence of the Wild, and Scion of the Wild. It also might be a good idea to put in more Champion of Lambholts as it is a very good card in your deck. I also reccomend maybe putting in Overwhelming Stampedeinstead of overrun because of your big hitters and Might of the Masses, but its optional as it is a high risk high reward card in your deck. I'm thinking of putting saproling spawners in my deck now!
