I don't know what budget you are looking at but Harmonize or Carven Caryatid might be better than Citanul Woodreaders. It might also be good look into Gaea's Revenge instead of Terra Stomper it has positives and negative but it cant get him by paths and stuff so i prefer it.

I'll consider Gush, Citanul Woodreaders, and Treasure Cruise. I literally just took out Mind Stone for Commander's Sphere because it taps for colored mana and cracks for free.

I like the card Citanul Woodreaders however without the "defender" ability it doesn't really help out the deck very well, and getting to 6 mana to kick and cast the citanul, I would rather play x3 Overgrown Battlement, Wall of Omens, or x1 of Elspeth, Sun's Champion. Card draw in this deck is fine with 10 cards providing enter the battlefield card advantage anyway.

The Sprouting Phytohydra is a card i have never heard of before so great suggestion! However while he does help Overgrown Battlement and Axebane Guardian ramp for mana, he doesn't actively help me win as I have to pay 5 mana for him to create an extra mana. If his CMC was lower, I would definitely add him against aggro decks.

As for the 2 Primal Surge's, I agree that it is annoying hitting a Primal Surge into a Primal Surge but thats a risk I take, and with all other cards being a permanent, I have shrunk the chance of this card stopping to the minimum. Most of the time it will win me the game, the other times it will put enough cards to enable me to win the game, if you are unlucky then it will fizzle quickly but thats magic.

I love the primal surges, but could you cut one of them for something like Citanul Woodreaders or Sprouting Phytohydra, I just had the combo fizzle in testing when I hit the other one. IN my current meta, I'd maindeck Suppression Field, but whatever.

I can see where you are going with this deck, but it lacks some useful (and even budget) cards.

  1. Drop Citanul Woodreaders and Ivy Dancer. Citanul Woodreaders is too expensive for what it is, and Ivy Dancer is just a bad card, perhaps a sideboard card against other green decks, but that's about the best it will ever do... what you need is 4X Elvish Visionary instead of those two cards, and he is pretty cheap!

  2. You want two things: elves and ramp. Problem is that you have not enough elves to make effctive use of 2x Joraga Warcaller and 2x Immaculate Magistrate. They belong in a full elf deck. Replace it with 2x Polukranos, World Eater (like Sergal said) which is not that expensive for a mythic at all and 2x Nylea, God of the Hunt, which is not expensive either for a mytic.

  3. A very fun and budget card in this deck is definitely Lead the Stampede because it grabs out your creatures as a sort of budget alternative to Collected Company which is expensive.

  4. Ezuri's Archers seems a bit out of place too, you can replace it with Young Wolf. If you want interaction with counters then (since you use Vorapede and Strangleroot Geist, you can also add Avatar of the Resolute and Experiment One. Swordwise Centaur is also a very budget and good card to give devotion.

Hope you could use this advice and keep up the good work!
