Did you just some cards I run in a Naya token deck and thought they might be useful but I've never played bant tokens so I don't know.

Also for what it's worth there's a card coming out in return to Ravnica that's a 5 drop enchantment that says anytime you would produce a token produce a 4/4 flying angel with vigilance instead. that could be pretty dope!

Have you considered Reyhan, Last of the Abzan partnered with Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker as your commanders? A: They work better with +1+1 counters than Atraxa and are far more explosive with this strategy (She's better off proliferating pretty much any other type of counter and I'd run her in the 98). B: They get a LOT less hate. If you do decide to try, I recommend adding Jarad as an alt win-con... when Reyhan moves counters, they double again off Corpsejack Menace/Doubling Season etc. and the damage adds up FAST. I'd also drop things like Astral Cornucopia if you switch.

Now as far as suggestions go...

Creatures: Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Champion of Lambholt, Eternal Witness, Kalonian Hydra, and Vigor.

Instants: Inspiring Call, Teferi's Protection, Heroic Intervention, Ready // Willing, Path to Exile, Beast Within, and Anguished Unmaking.

Enchantments: Cathars' Crusade, Rhystic Study, and Sylvan Library.

No sorceries, pw, or artifacts I can think to add.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas... I run Reyhan/Ishai but same colors and strategy so it should help whether you switch commanders or not. Feedback and/or upvotes are appreciated. Atraxa-less Atraxa (Reyhan/Ishai +1+1 counters)

Sylvan Library is a pretty solid card, helping smooth your curve with the option for additional cards if needed.

You mentioned one of your issues is how to win--Champion of Lambholt can help with that some--you make it bigger with your commander's ability, making your other creatures harder to block.

Hardened Scales, Doubling Season, and Pir, Imaginative Rascal all go well with your commander, but not sure you have enough other +1/+1 counter enablers to make them worth it. Doubling Season, of course, can be run with some planeswalkers for instant ultimates.

Since you're running Protean Hulk and are in Blue, its worth adding an auto-win combo with Flash.

I would cut some of your destruction spells and perhaps replace them with Song of the Dryads, Imprisoned in the Moon, and Deep Freeze. Each can remove a commander without a zone change, so they are stuck on the field crippled. Song of the Dryads has the added advantage of removing any permanent.

Since you have pretty decent ramp and a low curve, Genesis Wave is a solid option, dumping creatures and adding some lands.

Champion of Lambholt Works really well with token builds, making your creatures unblockable. Your commander may get removed a few times, so having more protection could be good. Champion's Helm for hexproof and Darksteel Plate for indestructible.

aw, saw name of deck and thought it might have been a tron ghave deck.

Champion of Lambholt is a fun card for ghave, usually I'd link my ghave deck to save time giving suggestions, but I guess I haven't updated the list in over a year, I also forget the artifact's name, but there is one that lets you use tap abilities (something jar) as though the creature had haste that works pretty well when you give ghave's tokens the ability to tap for mana.

Hallo everybody,

This is my current commander deck, it is based around putting counters on things like Champion of Lambholt and swinging in for lots of damage. In my group I play against a The Ur-Dragon deck, a Muldrotha, the Gravetide deck, a Mizzix of the Izmagnus. I have had alot of problems with having to play to much into a board whipe to keep up with the pressure from the The Ur-Dragon but if I do I get blasted by the Muldrotha, the Gravetide or Mizzix of the Izmagnus. If anyone knows anything or just a general upgrade than I would be really greatfull.

Thanks in advance

Yep, that's my build. I only got to play it once (since I have quite a lot of EDH decks and my playgroup meets up roughly once a month). That game was pretty good and I won the match (though there were some good draws in the match). The card that get your tokens through really perform well, like Craterhoof Behemoth, Champion of Lambholt, Triumph of the Hordes and Pathbreaker Ibex.

Firegriff on EDH Custom Deck Challenge

The Challenge that I propose is this: pick a plane, then design a featured Commander of a Legend from the plane. The twist is that the Commander needs to be at least two colors and be designed as a Planeswalker that can be played as Commander. Describe the idea for the deck, how the Commander's Spark triggered, and a general idea of cards you might include as part of the deck if you were designing it for sale. For instance:

Deck name: Saving Grace Plane: Innistrad Commander: Sigarda, Heron of Light (3)(G)(W) Sigarda, Heron of Light can be your Commander. [+2] Put a 1/1 Human token with hexproof into play under your control. [-2] Discard a creature card from your hand. Put a 4/4 Angel token with flying and hexproof into play under your control. [-8] You gain an emblem with, "Creatures you control have lifelink and hexproof. Creatures you control may not be sacrificed. [4]

Spark: After the confrontation with the fused, corrupted Bruna and Gisela, after the 'victory' of the Gatewatch, Sigarda's heart longed for answers, for how to help heal her world. Her heart's cry pulled her out of her world to another, before pulling her back home, where she found Arlinn Kord waiting to speak with her. Realizing now the existence of other worlds, Sigarda has determined to find a way to keep the humans of her ravaged world safe from both internal threats and threats from other planes.

Deck concept: Angels, Humans and Spirits working together to protect and support each other.

Sample cards: Briarbridge Patrol, Cathedral Sanctifier, Champion of Lambholt, Champion of the Parish, Devout Chaplain, Bygone Bishop, Dearly Departed, Drogskol Shieldmate, Angel of Glory's Rise, Angel of Jubilation, Herald of War, Haunted Cloak, Avacyn's Collar, Inquisitor's Flail
