What I am seeing is that you have a lot of solid cards that are great in a vacuum, but not a whole lot of cards that actually work well with one-another. In others words you don't just lack combo, you also lack synergy. The issue with a deck like this is that you may be casting spells and expanding your boardstate every turn, but you aren't doing anything impactful to the game.

  • You may feel like you are going off, but really you are just playing random cards.

What you lack, overall, are bombs. You need cards that immediately threaten the presence of the game such as Craterhoof Behemoth .

However, your Commander is Captain Sisay , so I am going to suggest specifically Legendary spells. This in turn gives you synergy between your Commander and the rest of your board.

  • Avacyn, Angel of Hope ; A strictly better version of Zetalpa, Primal Dawn
  • Bow of Nylea : Increases the danger of attacking into you. Trust me, when players see this thing on the field, it immediately halts aggression
  • Dosan the Falling Leaf : Stops blue decks in their tracks
  • Ghalta, Primal Hunger : Toward the end of the game, this is effectively a 1-2 turn clock. What I mean is, if you play Ghalta after a wrath, he will take down an opponent typically in 1 or 2 attacks. If you play him before a wrath, you threaten entire boardstates as players will need to double and even triple block to absorb the damage. And if he gets countered, so what? You only paid for him, anyway. At least, in most cases
  • God-Eternal Oketra : You are running a lot of creatures. This should be main-boarded with no exceptions
  • Karametra, God of Harvests : She allows you to ramp by playing creatures. The hidden power of Karametra is that by taking lands directly from your deck, you thin your deck down. This in turn increases the probability of drawing into powerful cards sooner rather than later
  • Konda, Lord of Eiganjo : Effectively an 8/8 you can swing with and block with every turn. Just this alone makes opponents rethink attacks because they know they will lose at least one thing. This means they must attack with two creatures, knowing at least one will die
  • Linvala, Keeper of Silence : Snuffs out creature-focused combo decks
  • Odric, Lunarch Marshal : Overall a powerful synergy piece once your boardstate is robust enough
  • Parhelion II : Solid boardstate generator
  • Shalai, Voice of Plenty : Stops a lot of midrange decks
  • Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger : Gross
  • Yeva, Nature's Herald : Play in response to actions. Give your opponents the least amount of time to react to your spells
  • Zetalpa, Primal Dawn : Deadly beater

I think you need a bit more ramp to speed up the deck. You're playing green--why are you running the signet over more durable land ramp, especially when you only have 35 lands here? Rampant Growth , Nature's Lore , Cultivate , Diligent Farmhand , Wood Elves , Farhaven Elf , and Solemn Simulacrum are all cards I would pick before the signet. These will help you get Sigarda out sooner and give you staying power for the late game.

Also, if you're up against Sheoldred regularly, you might want to consider some more graveyard hate, like Scavenger Grounds , Tormod's Crypt , and Sentinel Totem . Sigarda will keep you from sacking but she won't prevent them from reanimating.

I would also swap one of your artifact/enchantment removal spells for Return to Nature , since it can exile something targeted by a reanimate effect.

Since you're aura-focused here, I would also think about Battle Mastery .

You also have virtually no draw here. Sram, Senior Edificer , Rishkar's Expertise , or Return of the Wildspeaker would all be great in this build. Even a Harmonize would do you good.

As for what you could cut to make room for some of these suggestions, I'd think about Flower / Flourish , Unflinching Courage , Dromoka's Command , Devouring Light , Indestructibility , Darksteel Plate , Bow of Nylea , and maybe one or two other targeted removal spells. You have a lot here.

Okay. I'm the Reddit dude. Sorry for the wait. Life interfered and I didn’t have a great opportunity to write this, so my b. Here's what I'd try messing around with. I'll do my best to keep suggestions budget

Boardwipes Add Rout , End Hostilities , Cleansing Nova ... Three should be fine. When you need a boardwipe, it pays to have one. You will need a boardwipe at some point.

Removal Naya Charm is a fog, removal spell, mass unblockablility, and a Regrowth all at once. Worth it. Generous Gift and Beast Within are also solid open-ended removal spells. Oblation , Chaos Warp , and Swords to Plowshares should do the rest

Draw Add Beast Whisperer , Guardian Project , and some other spells that draw off creatures. Your deck has so many creatures - might as well turn them into cantrips. Primordial Sage and Lifecrafter's Bestiary also come to mind. Maybe a Vivien Reid as removal and draw all in one, if you feel like splurging a bit?

Ramp Cultivate Kodama's Reach Farseek Rampant Growth Into the North + two of each basic snow land Burnished Hart Farhaven Elf Springbloom Druid

Boardwipes, removal, ramp, draw - That’s the general stuff that each deck needs simply to function

Here’s some more niche stuff I think your deck could use

Protection Kindred Boon and Eight-and-a-Half-Tails are good at protecting your creatures, and what makes them better is that the're activated abilities - to say, your werewolves won't flip but you’ll get to spend your mana

Overrun Beastmaster Ascension , Overwhelming Stampede , and Thunderfoot Baloth all do WORK! Swinging in with the team is your way to win the game. Make it more powerful

The Other Stuff I really like Cult of the Waxing Moon , Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves , Bow of Nylea , Mastery of the Unseen and Boros Charm . Bow synergises particularly well with your commander, making blocking a lose-lose situation. Mastery of the Unseen is a solid mana sink, so you’ll have something to do on the turns where you don’t want to flip your wolves. Boros Charm ’s just insanely more versatile than it appears

Ok. This comment’s long enough as is, so I’ll take my leave. If you want a hand making cuts, though, feel free to comment and I’ll try to get back to you quicker this time :)

Kingdomsteel on Reki, the History of Kamigawa: Legendfall

Hey man, love your list!

I'm running a Reki myself and been having tons of fun with it. If I may just drop some suggestions here:

Honor-Worn Shaku , my god this over performs in many ways. It's no legendary but it works well with any legendary.

Sakiko, Mother of Summer This beast pumps out heavy mana in your second main phases and has great synergy with your Omnath, Locus of Mana . I'd switch her with Sashi, Daughter of Seshiro. You don't have that much snakes or shamans to make her that important imo.

Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant Goes GREAT with Rites of Spring Imagine one forest tapping for 11 mana...

The Great Henge Is jsut ONE of those cards..

Patron of the Orochi Also very nice with Honor-Worn Shaku or any form of mana doubler.

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Because salty tears taste best with Vorinclex on the field.

Nissa, Worldwaker just the +1 to untap FOUR FORESTS.. and let's not get started over the -7. There are many other planeswalker I run in my deck but this one definitely stands out for me.

Bow of Nylea has so much possibility's and potential in an entire EDH match, don't underestimate this card.

Hua Tuo, Honored Physician Helped me get some stuff out of the graveyard lategame. Pretty awesome.

Jiang Yuanggu, Wildcrafter goes together well with your Rishkar, Peema Renegade AND generates more potential for mana dorks. Leyline of Abundance is a definite recommendation with this.

Joe_Ken_ on Make token

Really like this idea for her as the commander, I'll look into it a bit and give some recommendations.

Tendershoot Dryad will make a saporling during each upkeep meaning if it isn't taken out fast you will end up with an army of 3/3 plants.

A good card for some mana ramp would be Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip flips I to a large source of mana that can be very beneficial with all the tokens you intend to make.

Shamanic Revelation costs 1 less than Collective Unconscious and has the potential upside of making a lot of life for each creature with power 4 or more.

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood is a good land for after you make a lot of green tokens because it will put a counter on each one that entered that turn.

Beacon of Creation will give you a large board late into the game and will shuffle back into the library after being cast.

Bow of Nylea is a cool card that can make your creatures difficult blocks by giving them all death touch as well as giving you some value with the tap ability.

There is obviously Doubling Season , Parallel Lives and Primal Vigor but those have all gotten pretty expensive over time.

GrimVeracity on Mono-Green Gods

Funny you mention the swords, I've been finding them less and less useful because they are just too expensive to cast and equip... I have them in here as a later game solution to bring back creatures like Groundbreaker to hopefully close out the game but this is a rare occasion. I've considered Bow of Nylea a long time ago when the deck was in its earlier stages but didn't know how to squeeze them in and then nearly forgot about the card all together! Now that you've pointed out this card again I think its a perfect opportunity to replace the swords. Thank you for the recommendation Balinor5 :)
