Before I dive into the responses, I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to comment.

  • Emerald Medallion/Rhonas's Monument - bring in mono green, I have no way to search for these to get them out early and after turn 4 they really become a dead draw. The deck generates an insane amount of mana when I get going for better utility that I can use at any point in the game.
  • Nyx Lotus - I hate that it enters tapped. I've been on the fence about it, and if I ever pull one or trade for one, I'll test it. It also runs counterintuitive to Collector Ouphe which I try to keep out as often as possible to hinder my playgroup.
  • Bow of Nylea - deathtouch is rarely needed, Ohran Frostfang is ran mostly because of the passive draw ability it has. I am running this in my budget deck though since it doesn't generate mana like this version does. I do plan on testing it in this version eventually for the other abilities though.
  • Brawn/Nylea, God of the Hunt/Nylea's Forerunner/Primal Rage/Roughshod Mentor - between kamahl and hoofy, these are unneeded.
  • Citanul Hierophants/Cryptolith Rite - I ran hierophants for a long time when I first made the deck and eventually dropped it. Outside of my mana dorks, I dont tap the creatures for mana, so it just became unnecessary.
  • Embodiment of Insight - I dont turn my lands into creatures unless absolutely necessary. So this doesn't really help my playstyle.
  • Sword of the Animist - it's a great card, I just don't use equipment in this deck. No real reason for it, I dont even run Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves.
  • Vivien's Arkbow/Elvish Piper - both on the list to playtest.
  • Overwhelming Stampede/Overrun - ran stampede for years in the deck and eventually dropped it for more utility. My commander does overrun at instant speed so I wont waste a slot on the actual overrun card.
  • Beastmaster Ascension - haven't really considered it to be honest. I dont need it offensively, but could be useful to help keep my mana dorks alive from mass damage spells. I'll have to play around with it.
  • Rogue's Passage - unneeded. When I swing, I get through.
  • Reliquary Tower - already in the deck.
  • Pir's Whim - I just recently discovered this card for another deck and plan on playtesting it in this deck.
  • Lifecrafter's Bestiary - on the maybe list, I'll eventually playtest it.
  • Harmonize - I have better draw spells for only 1 additional mana.

Again, thank you for all the suggestions, I greatly appreciate it.

I love this deck though i have to wonder why some cards are not in here if you could find room fair enough or if you though that this doesn't need them again fine. Emerald Medallion and/or Rhonas's Monument for cheaper spells and creatures now I know green can ridiculous amounts of mana so these are not the most important but the monument does give a creature a mini Overrun each time you cast a creature spell. Nyx Lotus which just a second slower Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for more ramp, Bow of Nylea Which gives the passive ability of Ohran Frostfang as it never hurts to have redundancy a few time to have something to fall back on but also give you these really nice modal options the best for this deck are the add a +1/+1 counter on a creature each turn which helps trample, And the Put up to four target cards from your graveyard on the bottom of your library in any order for reusable cards as I didn't see anything that lets you use the graveyard as a resource and like it been apart of every green deck I seen because of it utility. Things that give creatures trample other than your commander things like Brawn, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Nylea's Forerunner, Primal Rage or Roughshod Mentor things like that. Citanul Hierophants or Cryptolith Rite for more mana. Embodiment of Insight as it such has a high synergy level with your commander. Sword of the Animist for repeatable forest searching which also helps thin your deck so your draw abilites become more useful. Vivien's Arkbow or Elvish Piper for free creatures. Overwhelming Stampede as it has a great synergy with your commander. you mention over Overrun and that would be a great addition to this deck as would Beastmaster Ascension which I always seen as an auto include. May take out a forest for Rogue's Passage as unblockable creatures in decks like this are no joke. I would do the same for a Reliquary Tower for unlimited hand size, mostly for those people that are running forced draw card decks like Nekusar, the Mindrazer or similar decks. I would also run Pir's Whim for a few reason, 1. it give you the ability to search for a non-basic land, 2. it can target more than just one artifact or enchantment (though you don't get to choose) and 3. it a little politics to your deck you can make deals with other players so they can be friends instead of foes until you are ready to deal with them. And finally both Lifecrafter's Bestiary and Harmonize for more draw power

Hello! Love this trample theme you have going on. Thoughts on Brawn?

Creature - Incarnation

When ~ dies, choose an opponent secretly.

Exile ~ from your graveyard and reveal the chosen player: Choose one:

-All creatures chosen player controls get -3/-3 until end of turn.

-Chosen player loses half of their life, rounded down.

Activate this ability only if you control three or more swamps, and if ~ has only entered your graveyard from the battlefield this turn.

3/3

Continue the cycle. We're doing incarnations. Examples: Anger, Filth, Valor, Wonder, Brawn.

hi TheBooman i would definately suggest my older non-combo build.
Basically a self-mill deck packed lots of creatures like Boneyard Wurm,Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord,Splinterfright,Kessig Cagebreakers,Izoni, Thousand-Eyed,Hallowed Spiritkeeper and of course Brawn.
Other than that i don't have a good idea because i am actaully trying to improve the combo and those cards although really good they are a little slow for my playgroup.

For only one mana more, you can play Aggressive Mammoth instead of Thundering Ceratok. For two more mana, you can play Akroma's Memorial. For three more mana, you can play Craterhoof Behemoth and just win the game.

You've got some decent removal, but I think Aura Shards would be better than Return to Nature and Aura Mutation is a great surprise army that can destroy a Caged Sun out of nowhere, for example.

For only one mana more, you can play Aggressive Mammoth instead of Thundering Ceratok. For two more mana, you can play Akroma's Memorial. For three more mana, you can play Craterhoof Behemoth and just win the game. There's also Archetype of Aggression or Brawn if you want to go cheaper.

In terms of cards to cut, Emmara Tandris is really overpriced for the body and the ability. You are also playing a bunch of untappers which I don't quite understand, like Hyrax Tower Scout, Village Bell Ringer and Sparring Mummy. I see they work with Combat Celebrant, but that hardly seems worth a slot in your 99 and could be better served as some else. Marisi is a great card, but might not be good enough for this deck. Conclave Phalanx also seems pretty weak compared to other cards you could be playing. Spirit of the Hearth also seems a bit random. Elbrus seems fun, but not likely to do much. Removing these cards is going to help focus your deck with more synergy and also speed it up with more ramp.

I hope this helps.
