Xica...any ideas for zombies? Im trying to stay in two colors and more zombies sounds like adding black.

I guess I could cut Elvish Archdruid and add more universal ramp (Birds of Paradise and the like). I cut Grave Titan for Panharmonicon because it wasn't fast enough to get to the Titan.

I have thought about things like Jarad's Orders, Grisly Salvage, Commune with Nature, Chord of Calling and Eldritch Evolution for Tutoring. If I used Grisly Salvage or Jarad's Orders, I might be able to squeeze in Eternal Witness.

Some cards I would look at cutting; Wilderness Elemental, Wight of Precinct Six, Thelonite Hermit, Selesnya Guildmage, Primeval Protector and Sylvok Explorer could be switched out for Birds of Paradise and Sylvan Caryatid, Gaea's Revenge is super expensive in an otherwise inexpensive agro deck, Evolutionary Escalation could be switched out for Gratuitous Violence... Just a few choices. Athreos, God of Passage and Heliod, God of the Sun are insane with Saskia and Iroas, God of Victory. My Saskia Decks are here- I'd love some feedback too Unstoppable Warrior Tribal Input Welcome!, and United and Unyielding Deck

Thank You LeaPlath for your very detailed comment. I do see what you mean when you say the deck is poor. This deck was not supposed to see competitive play, just something I made for fun.

If an opponent playing aginst this deck has a bad deck themselves or is not a good player, this deck CAN win turn three if I just add 4 Concordant Crossroads.

Turn 1, Play-Forest, Forest, Play-Birds of Paradise

Turn 2,Play-Forest, Birds of Paradise, Play-Sunstrike Legionnaire

Turn 3,Play-Forest, -Forest, -Forest, Birds of Paradise, Play-Presence of Gond, Enchant-Sunstrike LegionnaireWithPresence of Gond, -Forest, Play-Concordant Crossroads, Sunstrike Legionnaire Activating the infinate combo, and all of the 1/1 Elves have haste.

I recommend 4x Blighted Agent, Yavimaya Coasts over Botanical Sanctums also add 2 more lands or at least 2 Birds of Paradise, more pumps less counterspells. Good luck!

Your ratios still need a bit of a tune up, I would recommend that you drop the following:

4x Devoted Druid

1x Crucible of Fire

1x Sarkhan's Triumph

3x lands

In favor of:

3x Shaman of Forgotten Ways

2x Steel Hellkite

4x Arbor Elf (with him I would suggest transforming your land base to include Stomping Ground and Cinder Glade but that can be pricey so perhaps some Birds of Paradise or Whisperer of the Wilds).

Skyshroud Claim > Nissa's Expedition

Claim is significantly better and 1 mana less than expedition, and both lands go to play untapped. Alternatively Kodama's Reach because it's in your side board.

I second the replacing of Fog with Boros Charm. I like Deflecting Palm because I think it's hilarious to be able to redirect an aetherflux shot (even if it's super conditional), but it may not be that worth. Maybe sideboard it?

I don't like Angel of the Dire Hour, the cmc is super high and is not worth it in my opinion. I'd replace with a board wipe or spot removal like Condemn or Swords to Plowshares.

Beast Within should be in the deck already, idk why you have it sideboarded. It's staple green removal.

I also don't think Mentor of the Meek does anything for you. You don't have many 2 power creatures at all, and not enough token generation for it to come in handy immediately. There aren't nearly enough token generators for Emmara Tandris to be of any use either, and she's hella expensive cmc wise. Iroas, God of Victory is way better at 4 mana.

Instead of Tenacity run either Overwhelming Stampede or Overrun, or something like Pathbreaker Ibex or Craterhoof Behemoth. Triumph of the Hordes is another good one and is the same cmc as tenacity.

Maybe replace Birds of Paradise or Rampant Growth with Somberwald SageYou might wanna look at Anger or Urabrask the Hidden as haste enablers also.

Dunno if all of these get your deck under cmc 4.1, i kinda just started giving suggestions lol.
