Nillstan,
I don't have enough experience with Elves to comment on your mainboard, but I've played a TON of Gruul, so here are a few thoughts for possible inclusion in the side:

Good luck (and good skill) with the brew!

While they are few in number there are some powerful Scarecrows out there. A bit surprised you're not running Scarecrone , Chameleon Colossus , Mirror Entity , and Taurean Mauler .

There is also Scuttlemutt and Wild-Field Scarecrow that act as fixing.

Oh and you can run Sakashima the Impostor to get a second copy of Reaper King in play.

Finally there is Noxious Gearhulk . It would just be good utility and it would be another synergy card with Scarecrone.

Taurean Mauler and Chameleon Colossus are great additions. With Ravnica Allegiance, Rhythm of the Wild will make your deck even stronger.

Also, what is Eidolon of Blossoms doing in here? Also, Taurean Mauler and Chameleon Colossus are two of the best "werewolves," and you'll get some splash benefits for Fang of the Pack from some of your cards. You could use a couple of overrun effects in addition to Tribal Unity like Triumph of the Hordes and Craterhoof Behemoth , since it's the best way to close out the game with a creature deck.

wall of text warning, sorry i got a little carried away, i love Zacama, and been playing a lot of it so i couldn't resist trying to help another player out.

My thoughts on your artifacts:

Doubling Cube it's not very good in a zacama deck as it's not really recur-able like the other mana doublers.

Lightning Greaves switch it out for Swiftfoot Boots the shroud hurts you more often than it helps, specially when you're trying to target Zacama or something to save them with temur not on your turn.

Sunforger it's essentially 8 mana to tutor for an instant, that's mana better spend just drawing cards, or better tutors.

Whispersilk Cloak same reason as lightning greaves. if you want redundancy, Champion's Helm

The Immortal Sun if you're trying to stop a lot of planeswalker in your meta, keep it, otherwise it's too expensive of a cast.

after you cut those artifacts add in Stony Silence and/or Null Rod which adds more stuff for your enlightned tutor to fetch. this will not really stop you other than your equipments, sol ring, and mana vault (which I MIGHT cut, up to you though on that one) which is waaay less important than everyone else's rocks that they're probably relying on more than you.

thoughts on Enchantments:

Aura Shards you're not running enough creatures to really benefit you, and Zacama IS aura shards.

Aggravated Assault + Bear Umbra is cute at best, but outside of that just a straight double strike is just better than wasting your time with this combo, other than Etali you don't really benefit from additional combat steps.

Dictate of Karametra, Heartbeat of Spring, Zhur-Taa Ancient don't help other players, unless your deck is fast enough to win on the turn these come out, you're helping 3 other players that's NOT you. that's a strict 3 to 1 disadvantage no matter how much more lands you have. if you really want another doubler, Zendikar Resurgent.

Sunbird's Invocation is another cute card, and in a zacama deck i feel like it's just more a "win-more" card than actually helping you advance your board state, specially for it's mana cost.

please let me know how successful you've been with Food Chain + Myth Unbound combo works out for you, i thought about it, but didn't pull the trigger for it yet. Also how is Shapers' Sanctuary working out for you? i like 1 drops, and ones that can draw you cards is even better. On average how many cards do you think you draw from that card per play?

Sorceries/instants:

Banefire is that to remove planeswalkers? if so that's actually pretty smart, i didn't think of using it that way, but it's good to have.

Plea for Guidance this is to get your aggravated assault/bear umbra or food chain/myth unbound combo i assume, any other combos i'm missing? it's pretty expensive to play, 6 mana to search, then another 6-14 mana to get those other combos going. If you decide to keep it, i recommend adding Abundance to combo with Sylvan Library pick up lands or non lands to your liking and not pay life.

Rolling Thunder switch it out for Aurelia's Fury it's just a straight upgrade, it's at instant speed, and so much more utility, this card can win you games.

other than that, i'd recommend more ramp spells and tutors:

Rampant Growth, Hunting Wilds (don't ever pay the kicker), and Traverse the Outlands gets crazy as soon as Zacama drops, Kodama's Reach and Cultivate wouldn't hurt. Hour of Promise ramps AND searches for ANY land.

Green Sun's Zenith and Chord of Calling are great to find your combo pieces.

Uncage the Menagerie can play well too, but you'll have to actually build your deck around it a bit more to actually be effective.

As far as creatures go, i recommend the mana dork squad, having a consistent turn 1 play every game will really affect your board state advantage, having 3 mana on turn 2 is a big difference, specially for all the ramp spells you want to be casting.

Chameleon Colossus is a great creature for mana sink, pump it up, then you can Soul's Majesty it, or similar effect with it.

Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma and Spellbreaker Behemoth this is hit and miss. you only really have 7-10 creatures they actually affect, if you feel like you're running enough green, Emerald Medallion can be better value than goreclaw, and Vexing Shusher and Prowling Serpopard would affect more of your deck than spellbreaker.

Whitemane Lion combo's with Panharmonicon to infinitly bounce zacama for the same mana cost as Temur, if temur ever gets exiled. also having flash, can save a creature in case of a removal or something.

Garruk, Primal Hunter is pretty much another Soul's Majesty. it's worth the slot even for just a 1 time use draw card when your fatties are out.

Recursion, your deck is lacking pretty much every basic form of it. Eternal Witness and Regrowth are just green staples. and personally, i would cut Praetor's Counsel for Seasons Past it's cheaper to cast, and will get back most of what you need anyways.

also i would up your land count to 36-38 your deck's average CMC is too high to be greedy on lands.

adding Slayers' Stronghold combos with Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion (remember Hour of Promise?) to get Zacama up to 22 commander damage to get a sneaky kill on someone without a blocker.

Kessig Wolf Run is just another quality land.

Hanweir Battlements and Flamekin Village along with slayers' can give creatures haste for some other sneaky plays.

clayperce on Rakdos dragons in modern?

Boza,
A couple other amazing Dragons:

  • Chameleon Colossus, which is especially good in a meta heavy on Death's Shadow (as few--if any--DS decks can deal with the card at all.
  • Hellkite Tyrant, which has maybe only been played in one competitive deck ever, but is perhaps the most hilarious sideboard tech I can imagine.

SizzleySurprise on Slivers 2.0

removal spells - Harsh Mercy is a clear winner here. Along those lines, Kindred Dominance would also be good. Artificial Evolution works really well, like the Amoeboid Changeling you already have listed. Obviously Mutavault,Cavern of Souls and Collected Company are big winners, but pricier. I'm sure you've seen it, but Dormant Sliver is good at keeping the party going, even in the face of removal, Sidewinder Sliver helps overcome tiny deathtouch-ers, and Chameleon Colossus seems weird, but is a beefy beefy boy in decks like this.

I want to put together a sliver EDH, but you really gotta have the queen, and I just can't drop that much on one card. >.< Maybe I'm cheap, but really everything is just about priorities.

Anyway, I'm new to tappedout, so let me know what you think!
