CaptSillva on Vial "Health" Smasher

I also made a deck around this one, you might be able to get some ideas from my list here Vial Smasher & Kraum EDH.

I could also suggest Avatar of Might, Coiling Oracle, and Training Grounds for Thrasios.

Rapacious One is great with Xenago's ability, I wouldn't cut him. I personally would cut Avatar of Might, since this deck seems to be extremely creature-heavy, and the only time someone would have more creatures than you would probably be a token deck.

I would NOT put in Godo, Bandit Warlord for two reasons:

1: You have exactly zero Equipments for him to tutor when he hits the battlefield.

2: His attack ability only applies to Samurai creatures, so even though you may get another combat phase after this one, you won't have a way to untap your creatures to take advantage of said extra combat phase.

Since you're operating on a budget, I'm not gonna suggest cards like Stonehoof Chieftain, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, or Balefire Dragon, although all three of those creatures make for AMAZING additions to a Xenagos EDH deck. Deus of Calamity makes for decent land destruction and has built-in trample. Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma can give all your guys trample. Kessig Wolf Run is another decent addition.

One janky combo I ran in my Xenagos EDH was some big creature like Heroes' Bane or Primordial Hydra + Dragon Throne of Tarkir. Sure, my big creature turns into a doorstop, but now you gotta deal with 5 other creatures bigger than said creature.

Tyrant-Thanatos on Let's Discuss: Shards, Wedges, and ...

Favorite Shard: Grixis

Manipulative, cruel, powerful. Edicts, burn, bounce, counterspells, everything control can be found here, and with a handful of evasive, aggressive creatures to swoop in with once you've established control of the board, or you can play the slow-burn game with effects like Nekusar, the Mindrazer. Put your opponent(s) on a clock and deny them the ability to stop it. Plus their ability to run some of the meanest creatures in the form of things like Kederekt Creeper, Baleful Strix, Master of Cruelties, etc. So much fun to be had.

Honorable mention to Esper for similar reasons. Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, Punish Ignorance, etc. Good shit.

Favorite Wedge: Abzan

Relentless power. I love Abzan because of its resilience, strength, and versatility. I'm not a huge fan of a lot of Abzan specific cards, but being able to run things like Animate Dead, Sun Titan, Brave the Sands, alongside gigantic green creatures like Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Ghoultree, Avatar of Might, etc is just incredible. The incredible suite of removal that B/W brings to the table in the form of Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, etc, combined with the might of Green creatures, further compounded by the volume of powerful reanimation effects these colors all have, builds a powerful, versatile deck that just never gives up. I've run Abzan decks that have had their most crucial cards hit with Slaughter Games type effects, and they still didn't stop, didn't slow down, and pulled out a win.

Another Honorable Mention to Sultai. Muldrotha, the Gravetide is amazing, Damia, Sage of Stone is probably one of my top 10 favorite cards ever, and Sultai Charm works wonders.

Favorite Allied Guild: Rakdos

Rakdos just knows how to throw a party. Every time I've built Rakdos I end up having fun, win or lose. Chaotic game-changers like Everlasting Torment, Havoc Festival, and Sire Of Insanity just bring a lot of shenanigans to the table that people just aren't prepared to deal with. Terminate is one of the kings of removal. Cards like Backlash, Delirium, and Rakdos Charm punish a variety of opposing playstyles. The individual colors also contribute a lot to your ability to handle creatures, and create even more chaos. Endless Whispers, Scrambleverse, you name it.

I cannot wait to get my hands on Last One Standing.

Favorite Enemy Guild: Simic

This one is simple, these two colors compliment each other so well it's insane. There is almost nothing that exists in this game that Simic cannot do. Green's weakness is its inability to manipulate the board much without combat. Blue's weakness is in its board presence and creatures. They are ideal together. Ramp, removal, aggro, counterspells, creature control, resilience. Simic has all its bases covered, and with just two colors. Mystic Snake, Trygon Predator, Kiora's Follower, Plasm Capture, Voidslime, Simic Charm, these cards are amazing, and that's without getting into the mono-color cards.

I'd also like to throw out some love for "Growth", the combination. The only pure Growth cards we have thus far are Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, and Witch-Maw Nephilim, but boy what cards they are. But the colors themselves are awesome together. G/U's flexibility, W/B's removal, much less other multicolor synergies, access to Abzan cards, Sultai cards, Esper cards. Obviously the mana base gets complicated fast, and it can be hard to handle, but if it works, it works.

Nice build. +1 Primeval Titan, Avatar of Might or Terra Stomper might be good for trampling over when you don't have Nylea, God of the Hunt or are just going against a deck like tokens or humans that like to go wide fast.

Heldt honestly, I might sub Wayward Swordtooth for Leatherback Baloth myself, even if the low land count means I don't always get the full benefit of its Explore effect. Cryptolith Rite versus Emerald Medallion is intriguing as well, and certainly warrants testing. Depending on the decks you expect to face, I might recommend removing Avatar of Might instead of Beastmaster Ascension, but it really depends.

As for Boots and Greaves, I'm not sure I have a good answer. Primal Bellow, maybe? I really like having one or both of them, but I'm not sure where to find room. I'm glad I was able to inspire you to tackle the deck yourself!
