Paragon of Eternal Wilds, etc.
Archetype of Endurance, etc.
Soul of Zendikar, etc.
The Dictate cycle is also complete, but has some different God names. (Ex. Dictate of Karametra, Kruphix, Twin Gods, etc.)
I would get 5 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, to even all the deck's out.
Those are the ones I would add, if they aren't already present.

Alright, well if you're willing to go mono-green, you're in business :) You've already got the core of the deck. Collected Company, Ezuri, Renegade Leader, and + . You need one more Nettle Sentinel hands down. Four is mandatory. As for your mainboard changes, take out all the lands except forests, and only run 16. Yes. 16 lands. It's seriously all you need.
Take out the four Lead the Stampede (I seriously don't know why people play that card, it's really not that good). Put in four Chord of Calling. The Chords sit at 8 bucks a piece, which may or may not go against your budget, but they really are seriously worth it.
Then! Add in an Elvish Champion, this allows you to play against forests effectively and hit your opponent for free. As well add in one Scavenging Ooze. It's effective lifegain and is devastating to graveyard play. If you need more effective lifegain you can add in one Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, and if you CAN afford it, a Spellskite. If you cant afford the Spellskite though (which is very much understandable), then just put Dwynen to two. That leaves two slots!
After these changes, you've got a (somewhat) competitive deck!
If you look at my build of elves, and just take the creature and spell core, and make the 16 lands basic, you have a 356 dollar core INCLUDING sideboard. If you do NOT include sideboard, it's significantly less.
Some really good budget cards for sideboard are Bow of Nylea, Creeping Corrosion, Dismember, Hushwing Gryff (if you run white), and Burrenton Forge-Tender (if you run white). Other one's are a little bit more expensive, but your best spot removal for combo pieces is Beast Within (I can't even tell you how many times this has won me games).
If you need any other help or have a different idea for the deck, let me know :) I can help!

I would focus on cards that make Skullbriar hard to block, like Rogue's Passage, or cards that give him counters, like Aquastrand Spider, Bow of Nylea, and friends. Other good cards are Hardened Scales, Obsessive Skinner, and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar.

A few things I think you need to tweak your mana base a little bit because you are currently running only 6 basics and you are running Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, Evolving Wilds, and Blighted Woodland which all only search for basics. Also your land count is rather low for a control style deck like this so you could likely add in a few lands and cut back on the cycling lands since I don't see you wanting to pitch them very often.
With this commander I find cards that give options with their effect to be high value. So cards that are both creatures and artifacts are good. And of course enchantment creatures are good as well. Here is a list of cards that I think would fit well in this deck. Ichor Wellspring, Solemn Simulacrum, Precursor Golem, Mycosynth Wellspring, Whip of Erebos, Bow of Nylea, Archetype of Aggression, Courser of Kruphix, and Herald of Torment.

Right now really trying to decide on:
Helm of Kaldra vs Akroma's Memorial vs Nylea, God of the Hunt, the primary purpose of the slot is to give a source of trample for synergy with the deathtouch from Bow of Nylea and just as a general way of penetrating tough defenses. That said the helm has synergy with my other kaldra equipment, and can also act as another way to bring sisay online as soon as she comes in, but it's pretty slow. The memorial is expensive but gives lots of benefits, and also brings sisay online via haste immediately without worry that she can get picked off during an equip trigger. The protections are also very powerful, but I fear the card is so powerful and expensive that it makes potentially too good of a removal target and likely eats an entire turn playing it? Nylea on the other hand is very difficult to remove and has the potential to come online as another beatstick when I'm in a position to attack. Memorial would also probably need to be ditched if I were to ever roll with Gaddock Teeg since it has anti-synergy.
On that note, would Gaddock Teeg really be worth running? I can't say I'm familiar enough with the commander meta to really understand what he's useful for. Something tells me it's more than just a way to prevent people's X spells. I'm guessing he busts some combos? Otherwise the most relevant thing I could think of him stopping is board clear, since most of it costs more than 4. That said, he's not hard to kill and works against many existing cards in my deck, so I'm really not sure how important he is (despite his high price tag).

This deck seems super budget, so I'll keep my suggestions cheap (<$2).
I would start by cutting some of your creatures that don't add to the counter synergy. Cards like Tusked Colossodon and Ambush Krotiq don't add much to your theme. Another thing to consider in making cuts is even if the card fits the theme, does the deck work with it? Fabled Hero is a good example, it's a great card and is on theme, but you only have a 4/100 chance of triggering his Heroic ability. You might consider another card that has more synergy with the rest of the deck, or cards that have more value (i.e. do more than one thing, have repeatable effects).
Take a look at these, I run most of these cards in my Anafenza or Vorel decks that are both counter themed.
Ainok Bond-Kin, Gyre Sage, Forgotten Ancient, Scute Mob, Increasing Savagery, Death's Presence, Bow of Nylea, Juniper Order Ranger, Curse of Predation, Hunt the Weak, High Sentinels of Arashin, Tuskguard Captain, Gleam of Authority, Sunscorch Regent, Cathars' Crusade, and Vastwood Hydra.
Good luck! I love a good counter deck!

So the last time I played Standard, Siege Rhino was just coming into the format, so it's been a while.
With Khans finally out and shadows actually being kinda good, I decided that i'd start going to FNMs again, and this is the brew that I am working with:
SCORE: 21 | 2549 VIEWS | IN 6 FOLDERS
Basically, I feel like I need some more threats but I don't know what's in the format so I don't really know where to start. This was just built out of things that I had in my shop.
So what can I do to become more threat dense, is there any reasonable recursion in the format Elixir of Immortality style (Or heck, even Bow of Nylea style), and what are some better forms of removal that I should be packing?

Some thoughts, in no particular order:
- Skullclamp, to turn your Saprolings into a little green Draw engine.
- Mana Echoes is completely bonkers in a token deck ... I had to add some X-spells just to make use of all the mana! Add Sprout Swarm and you've got + , which goes infinite (both Saprolings and mana), given 5 untapped Saprolings (or 4 and a , or 3 and ). Add Ivy Lane Denizen and you've got + + which goes infinite too.
- For more +1/+1 counter strategy: Champion of Lambholt; Juniper Order Ranger; Bloodspore Thrinax; Forgotten Ancient; and Mycoloth
- Artifact Mutation, Aura Mutation, and Aura Shards are solid, yet flavorful removal.
- One quick thing: I'm not a fan of Primal Vigor at all ... it's just too much of a group hug card for my tastes.
- Bow of Nylea maybe? Because Deathtouch Saprolings!
- Moonveil Dragon maybe? Because Firebreathing Saprolings!
Good luck (and good skill) on the build!
