Id drop Shapers of Nature , Tishana, Voice of Thunder , Vivien of the Arkbow . simply put they take to much mana to run in this deck.

Also you could put in cards like Harmonize , Opt for card draw and Solidarity of Heroes for buffing (this might be a bit to mana expensive tho) also there are cards like Vitalize and Benefactor's Draught would help this deck type.

Creature Removal will certainly be tricky to balance in a creature heavy deck. I'd look into a little bit of card draw, since you'll be playing some cheaper creatures, you'll need to replenish your hand a bit to be prepared for rebuilding a board state.

But really, the list is looking pretty good! You'll be able to sort it out even further as you play it and pull out the cards you notice tend to be dead draws.

Krosan Verge is always a good pick for Selesnya decks. I did some digging into cards that can help you untap Emmara, and I happened across an infinite combo if you're into those things. Try Isochron Scepter with either Mobilize, Vitalize, or even Benefactor's Draught with a few mana dorks. Unbounded creatures, mana, and you can even draw your library with benefactor's if you'd like. Just things to consider if you wanna get a little spicy. Also, Earthcraft is a good card; expensive, but good. Hope this helps!

Quest for Renewal is a neat card, I might have to take a look at. I'm not a huge fan of Benefactor's Draught, it could gain a lot of potential card draw, but letting my opponents have untapped creatures with potentially nasty activated abilities would be too much of a risk. Thanks for the suggestions!

I love this deck. I don't have the money for this exact list, but I want to build this commander.

How do you feel about Quest for Renewal and Benefactor's Draught? You could have quest active on the turn you play it pretty easily. Benefactor's Draught seems pretty versatile; tap your druid to pump then untap them and attack, you could save someone whose blockers are tapped (and then you draw from them blocking), or you could just use it to create lots of mana on your turn.

You know I have heard of the Village Bell-Ringer and Temur Sabertooth combo and I don't know why I have forgotten about it. thank you for that reminder.

I did at one point have Aetherflux Reservoir in there, I took it out, I didn't want to build the deck around life gain and or life doubler's ... Why... I don't know. a BIG LASER to the face is funny. but choking someone out with poison is somewhat satisfying.

I do have To Arms! in the deck. the reason why I have Benefactor's Draught in there is not only for untapping, but for the card draw. and card advantage is key especially with a massive amount of mana to spend.

I looked at your deck. very nice, I will definitely +1. and the best part is that it is different. which makes Selvala, Explorer Returned even better.

Hey man, I am a huge Selvala fan myself, and I have my own high power deck here with her at the helm. Although I think my deck is more around the 75% power level (I put some pet and budget cards in mine), I'm sure it will be worth a look for you, as it plays slightly differently and runs a different set of cards, but still can consistently win crazy fast.

Here are a few card choices I recommend: In addition to Mobilize, etc. I recommend using To Arms! instead of Benefactor's Draught depending on your meta, since it doesn't untap their creatures.

Another combo that I use in my deck is Village Bell-Ringer + Temur Sabertooth. Although it is a little more mana intensive than the combos you already have, I like it because both cards are very useful individually (protecting and untapping your creatures).

Finally, I noticed that you have all this lifegain, but you don't have Aetherflux Reservoir? That seems criminal!

Anyway, love the deck!
