Really neat deck. I love Biogenic Ooze with Marath. Counters and tokens on one card? Yes please!

Awesome deck man, +1. I recently got back into Magic, and Vannifar also stood out to me as one of the main cards I wanted to brew around, so I've built 2 different BUG archetypes with her as a key cog. Since you've been brewing with Vannifar for a while I'd be interested to hear any ideas you might have.
The first (Neoristocrats) is quite a bit different from your deck, as it's mostly Black & uses a low curve with Aristocrats-style fodder creatures like Gutterbones & Orzhov Enforcer in order to generate value while pod-ing with Vannifar & Neoform or locking down the opponent's board with Priest of Forgotten Gods .
The second (Yarok's Toolbox) is much more similar to your deck, as it's mostly a Green ramp toolbox build. As the name suggests, it's more heavily focused on ETB triggers, but it's largely the same concept with a lot of the same cards, & also has some combo-style finishes. I really like what you're doing with the infinite turns combo tho, so I might have to think about working that in. Right now I'm using Gruesome Scourger +Yarok & End-Raze Forerunners as my big insta-win bombs.
Anyways, if I could give some tips for your deck, in general I have always found that "building around a card" works much more consistently if there are another 4-8 cards that can also synergize well with the cards that are designed to work with the featured card; there is only a ~40% chance that you will see a given 4-of in your opening hand, versus ~65% if you have 8 cards for a similar role. If you think about it in terms of a 3-game series, that's almost one extra game on average per series that you'll have what you need.
IMHO this is doubly true for Vannifar since she has to survive a turn on the battlefield to be used & is vulnerable to removal, so any strategy involving her needs some backup plans. For a Green ramp deck like this, I think the best pairing is Finale of Devastation , giving you much better odds of being able to utilize your toolbox when you need it, and making an immediate one-time impact in contrast to Vannifar's slower but repeatable ability. It also would give you the ability to get Vannifar or a non-CMC-friendly combo piece if you want to set up the infinite turns win.
Best of luck with the deck!

I think Dryad Greenseeker is too ambitious, would replace with Llanowar Elves , which is a one drop and makes guarenteed mana. Also God-Eternal Rhonas and the Wilderness Reclamation / Biogenic Ooze seem good, but they are not completely budget. Nice deck otherwise, +1 from me.

- awesome suggestions. I'm updating now to cut Explosive Vegetation and Cultivate . I am swapping in Genesis Hydra and Bramble Sovereign as some mana sinks and card draw/creature accelerators. I think they will work well in this.
Adding my very old Revised copy of Clone since a lot of the creatures in the deck have static abilities that would be nice to replicate based on a particular situation. Fun to play with it after all these years anyway.
Appreciate everyone's suggestions!
How is your meta around Oathbreaker currently?
1 month ago
Hey cool deck and theme. I'm curious what your meta is like cos I find in oathbreaker the game plays more like multiplayer modern than edh due to the 20 life total and smaller card pool. Because of that, staple ramp spells like cultivate/explosive vegetation feels too slow and more like timewalking myself when I could be doing other more efficient things on my turn. I would recommend replacing all of your ramp with mana dorks as they work as defender for your oathbreaker as well as threatening your opponent's. I would also recommend Thrasios, Triton Hero as a great mana sink or even Biogenic Ooze . I'm also not a fan of Sandwurm Convergence/Day of the Dragons as they usually are too slow if you draw into them and relying on your sig spell to luck into them. Hope this helps!

I like this a lot. There are so many good creatures atm that put counters on themselves that proliferate can be quite an explosive mechanic.
Personally, I'd try to stay simic colors because Hadana's Climb Flip and Biogenic Ooze kinda do the same job as Rhythm of the Wild and Ilharg, the Raze-Boar while allowing you to play Evolving Wilds or Field of Ruin to really go off with Evolution Sage . A fast Nissa, Who Shakes the World ultimate could be a thing worth going for especially since you have mana sinks for here static and with how she makes proliferate-able 3/3s.
