EDHREC is a solid resource, but it appears your charting new territory with Ape tribal, However while most apes are green, there are some red ones so ....
but it really depends on how you want the deck to run and what kind of effects you want access to in the command zone to support the deck .

Absolutely! My pleasure
If you're having two creatures fight, and you Momentous Fall yours; theirs lives? Fight is a neat mechanic, but I'd go with just the few low cmc ones. Chandra's Ignition is a good way to wipe out some creatures. As is Balefire Dragon and it's lil homie Cyclops Gladiator
Maybe consider streamlining the deck with more creatures to make sure you're out gunning opponents. Borborygmos is asking for "go wide" strategy, where Xenagos, God of Revels focuses on one creature at a time n "go tall". Btw if you can play something like Might of Oaks on your commander with xenagod out it's gg lol. Heroic Intervention might save you in a pinch
The infect idea is neat too. I like seeing that in all dif colors. Cheers

So I have a Gruul deck that I've been testing out in the playtest, I ended up with the following in my boardstate (Minus lands and Elvish Mystic):
Now, I should mention that Bor had already attacked before and Trample went through (Playtesting against a deck I have in person). So, Bor had a +1/+1 counter on him, making him a 7/8.
As I said, Ulrich gave him +4/+4, turning him into an 11/12.
Now I go to attack, and this is where my question arises.
When I declare both Ventmaw and Bor as attackers, I am triggering two abilities: Gaining 6 mana and dealing non-combat damage.
Am I allowed to effectively "pause" this, and use the six mana from Ventmaw to tap my untapped Kessig Wolf Run for 4RG (Using the six mana from Ventmaw), so that I can turn Bor into a 15/12, thereby allowing Mage Slayer to dish out 15 damage? Or was the 11 already set in stone once he attacked, but I can still pump him up for the Trample before damage resolves?

I'm new to commander and I'm trying to fill in the blanks. I have creatures that have the type "Legendary Creature ( Borborygmos ). Then, I have older cards with the sub type Creature Legend ( Aboshan, Cephalid Emperor ). Can Aboshan be used as a Commander or is this format for Modern printed cards. Thanks.

TheSpiritombEnthusiast, I really like the idea of having a copy of Borborygmos; I think he'll go hand-in-hand with his future self just fine in taking a card slot. However, I'm no too fond of Feral Animist. As big as he can be in power, he'll still be really vulnerable due to his natural lack of toughness. Maybe a Sideboard card against mirror-matchups?

I'd do this imo if ya wanted to go the land route
If he's a win condition you really want to hit run more than 1. Because he's a legendary creature and high cost, running 4 of these would be to hard and hurt your early game. Running 2 of them is just right.
take out the rest of these
4x Civic Wayfinder4x Dragonmaster Outcast4x Endless One4x Primal Druid4x Scute Mob2x Ulvenwald Hydra4x Splendid Reclamation4x Slab Hammer4x Cinder Glade
They are okay, but you need ways of getting the land out asap and those are too slow.
4x Sakura-Tribe Elder These guys let you sneak in damage or chump block an attack for free and still get his sacrifice effect because of the way sacrifice and something being blocked works.
4x Birds of Paradise These guys mana ramp and mana fix for the two colours well and also let you block a nasty flyer or hit for lethal if you can buff them and the opponent has no flyers/reach.
4x Primeval Titan Big hitters and more land, not to mention any land. So you can search for the non-basic lands!
2x Xenagos, the Reveler Gives you LOTS of mana if you have the creatures and helps get creatures via the haste tokens and has an awesome ult!
4x Atarka's Command An extremely versatile card! this lets you play an extra land and burn for 3 for only 2 mana, so good!
4x Life from the Loam This is a must for your style of using land as burn spells. Only issue is the cost. I'd use proxies for these perhaps till they get reprints and come down in price maybe xD
1x Overwhelming Stampede This is another win condition for green decks as they tend to have big hitters!
4x Lightning Bolt This is more a maybe if you want to deal with any early creatures or just enough damage to finish your opponent off. Best 1 drop burn spell there is!
With mana fixing creatures and planeswalkers you can afford to run 22 lands easily with a r/g deck without getting mana screwed from my experience. Hell some run 18-20 I play and do fantastic!
