Behemoth's Herald Discussion

Maybe add a Godsire with Behemoth's Herald? I also think you would be better off with a commander such as Mayael the Anima, taking advantage of white cards like Mayael's Aria or Realm Razer when you develop your board enough. I have a modern deck that is very similar, but got deleted off this website somehow:( Hope you get all the suggestions you need.

It doesn't help that Behemoth's Herald is a pretty mediocre card. In theory, you can get it to work on turn 3 (Turn one Temple Garden + Behemoth's Herald; Turn 2 Mountain + Goblin Guide + Isamaru, Hound of Konda; Turn 3 activate ability and summon Godsire).
Fun if you pull it off, but let's look deeper at the deck. It would require you to play three colours and have a number of cheap creatures spread across those colours that you can pump out to sacrifice. This leads to a problematic curve as you try to ensure you have valid sacrifice fodder.
Even if you do pull it off, Godsire is nothing but a large body for the first turn it is in play, giving your opponents another turn to further their victory.
Compare to Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Griselbrand, which user xaerusblade mentioned. Emrakul gives you an extra turn, has built in evasion, is protected from most removal, and has Annihilator 6. Even if you cheat it in and do not get the extra turn, you can be relatively sure it will survive to the next turn to close out the game. Griselbrand gives you seven cards right away, and can regain that seven life by being used as a blocker.
