Ajani's Pridemate could be good.If nothing else you should replace Elfhame Palace with Blossoming Sands and/or Graypelt RefugeJaddi Offshoot could also be good.

Here are some suggestions to make the deck more consistent and build more on it's synergy.

LAND Terramorphic Expanse, Blossoming Sands, Canopy Vista, Temple of Plenty, Selesnya Sanctuary or any other dual land

RAMP Cultivate, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Farseek, and Rampant Growth: put land directly onto the battlefield

OFFENSEHardened Scales, Citadel Siege, Earthen Arms: add +1/+1 counters

REMOVALBanishing Light, Oblivion Ring, Faith's Fetters: removal any non-land permanent Disenchant: more removal for artifacts or enchantments End Hostilities: board wipe effect for emergencies

DRAW Inspiring Call: draws cards and protects your valuable creatures Congregation at Dawn: puts any creatures you need at the top of your library Harmonize: puts more cards into your hand Lifecrafter's Bestiary: scry and draw are great card advantage

CREATURES Ivy Lane Denizen, Sunscorch Regent, Managorger Hydra, Salt Road Quartermasters: +1/+1 counters synergy Abzan Falconer, Tuskguard Captain, Longshot Squad: give creatures with +1/+1 counters value abilities

or they could replace it with Blossoming Sands, because it's just better when you have no blue in your deck.

Hey!

Commander is certainly my favorite format!! I would be happy to give ya a few pointers for what it's worth!

One thing that I noticed off the bat is that you have lots of tapped lands! I think you will find that very annoying to you and even that you don't need quite so many dual lands in the deck. I would take out Inspiring Vantage and in stead put in Clifftop Retreat. As well, I think Hanweir Battlements does nothing for you but slow you down since your commander already gives haste. However, if you run Hanweir Garrison (which I think you should) then it might be worth leaving in!

Myriad Landscape, Needle Spires, Rugged Highlands, Scattered Groves, Sheltered Thicket, Blossoming Sands, Sunscorched Desert, Teetering Peaks and Wind-Scarred Crag could be taken out, I would throw in some more basic lands unless you feel like dropping a lot of money on a deck and get some expensive but good dual lands which don't enter tapped... but I don't think you will need those honestly.

I feel like currently the deck is all over the place! It needs a little focusing to where you want to go with this. Commander is much more fun when you focus on getting out fun combos or cards that pair well together!

I think what i'll do is tell you about some cards you don't need in here and then some cards that you should absolutely put in here, and then some directions you might want to go towards with the deck!

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is a good card, but you are running too many non creature cards! He will hurt ya! (i built a commander deck with this guy as the commander. If you want to use him still, you can check out that deck for inspiration). Stop Hitting Yourself!

Zendikar Incarnate , Omnath, Locus of Rage and Mina and Denn, Wildborn are better for landfall decks, and won't be as much use outside of it. By the time you have 4 mana, you typically won't have more than one land card in hand at a time anyways, and if you just want the trample ability, there are much better cards out there for ya!

You can find better cards than Sylvan Reclamation for removal, depending on what you decide to do with the deck!

Wilderness Elemental is not particularly great.

Radha, Heir to Keld is not bad, but the two red mana empties from your mana pool after your combat phase ends. if you want to go for mana ramp and something similar, might i suggest Savage Ventmaw or Skyshroud Elf? Those two are similar but in different ways. The nice thing about skyshroud is that he can tap for green, red or white (since he taps for green and the second ability would allow you to use that green mana to turn it either red or white) and you can use it to filter your mana to the color you want (besides green). the mana produced by Savage Ventmaw doesn't deplete between phases.

Oversoul of Dusk while hybrid mana, is harder to cast in your 3 color deck and the card itself isn't necessarily that great. Green and white are very common colors in commander.Now Rubblebelt Raiders on the other hand.. might be worth it, and less mana intensive!

Thelonite Hermit is not super great since you're not creating tons of saproling tokens. I don't even really run it in my Tana, the Bloodsower commander deck.

Odric, Lunarch Marshal gives all your creatures double strike and vigilance when you have your commander out.

Bastion Protector aslo pairs well with Odric.. all creatures you control get indestructible.

Odric, Master Tactician is also good for you no matter what direction you decide to go with the deck!Content goes here

I see this really going anywhere. Your commander is quite flexible!

  1. You could find some way to play with your commander's untap ability (with things like Intrepid Hero or Heartless Hidetsugu and other cool creature tap abilities). you could use Illusionist's Bracers to copy the untap effect when you pay the mana cost. Heck, you could untap her with that free untap. Creatures with tap abilities can tap the same turn they come out as long as you control your commander!
  2. You could build a token deck featuring things with "devour" creatures, Anointed Procession and Parallel Lives.
  3. you could focus on large creatures that you can cast to smash into opponents the same turn they come out.

That's about all I have for now.. decide what you want to do to focus the deck and I will be looking to give you ideas wherever you decide to go with this!

I forgot to mention, lands:

Evolving Wilds of course. Blossoming Sands, Graypelt Refuge.

Llanowar Reborn could be useful.

Sandsteppe Citadel if you splash black. Same with Scoured Barrens and Jungle Hollow.

For more monies, check out the temples.

You can trade those two lands for Boros Guildgate and Blossoming Sands as they do not enter tapped and can fix colors later. And trading out a few mana rocks for the spells that put lands into play is essentially the same thing. But having the lands is generally better than the ramp the rocks provide. For me maybe Fellwar Stone and Darksteel Ingot for ramp spells

The "special" syntax for cards doesn't work.

[ [card:Blossoming Sands] ]

gives an error (not item found). Also, the site tries to parse the command despite the code block, hence the spaces between the brackets.

[[Blossoming Sands]]

works.
