@TheRedGoat Thanks for your suggestions and sorry for my bad englado.

Usually I need 2 creatures to kill Grothama, All-Devouring for the first time in a match. Personally I'm fine with that and don't think, that we need either Bow of Nylea or Grafted Exoskeleton .

The deck is built to draw a ton of cards and it pretty much always does. The only thing that can get in our way is, when we keep a starting hand without something for card draw, we don't draw anything similar and our creatures (which were to kill Grothama) will be removed. In this case a cheap early card draw spell like Life's Legacy or Hunter's Insight could be really useful. (When i built the deck, i was also considering those two but simply forgot to put them to the Maybeboard.

The Great Aurora - I've never seen this card before and I'm not quite sure if we need more lands on the battlefield, when we can already cast a 9 mana spell. The card draw is pretty sweet tho combined with Psychosis Crawler . (And you are right, the deck makes it easy to have a handsize of 20+ cards.)

Vivien's Invocation - In my opinion See the Unwritten is simply better.

Death's Presence - Could be pretty neat, but I'm not sure if I would cut antyhing for it.

Pathbreaker Ibex - Great card, can also be tutored for with Fierce Empath (I will definitely add it to the 99 in the future!)

Berserk - Already in the deck. Love the card... used it one time on a buffed Mossbridge Troll to hit for 50 and draw almost my whole deck with Greater Good .

Dragon Throne of Tarkir + Surestrike Trident - I almost cut all equipment cards because they were too slow. Only Darksteel Plate and Lightning Greaves are still in the deck.

Ravenous Slime - Most of the time our commander is dead before we end our turn. And if she is still alive, then we have some protection in back up. So we don't need Ravenous Slime .

I'd never suggest to play Grothama, All-Devouring just to have her on the board. Only play her, if you can make use of her ability in that turn or can protect her until your next turn.

I don't like Trollhide / Blinding Fog - When you need more protection for our wurm Blossoming Defense is cheaper and better.

Verdant Sun's Avatar - Personally I like the card, but I never felt needing it.

Gigantosaurus / Crash of Rhino Beetles / Phyrexian Dreadnought - Every creature in my deck has either a useful ability or is hard to remove. The 3 beater u mentioned are only big and die to easily.

I can only recommend Grothama, All-Devouring if you like card draw and smashing face with big hitters. She definitely has a unique ability which you can't find on any other card in magic. Beside Barktooth Warbeard , Grothama is my favorite EDH deck.

Some cards I notice you don't have and so would ask if you've considered or tested them:

Bow of Nylea or Grafted Exoskeleton as an easier way of getting your commander dead.

Soul's Majesty , Life's Legacy , or Nissa's Revelation as card advantage (sorcery speed doesn't matter much when your hand doubles in size.

Hunter's Insight and Hunter's Prowess seem like effective alternate ways to draw a ton of cards.

The Great Aurora can be a fairly one sided board wipe when you have a hand twice the size of everyone else combined. (Also works for token decks mind you)

Vivien's Invocation and Death's Presence seem fun, if not strictly connected.

Pathbreaker Ibex , Dragon Throne of Tarkir , Berserk , and Surestrike Trident seem like effective ways to close out games.

Ravenous Slime could discourage others from attacking into your commander.

Trollhide and Blinding Fog seem like good ways to keep your commander alive for a bit.

Verdant Sun's Avatar seems like a good way to keep yourself alive for a bit.

And lastly, Gigantosaurus , Crash of Rhino Beetles , and Phyrexian Dreadnought just seem like powerful beaters.

Do bear in mind I have no idea what your meta, usual play-style, or budget is like when asking these questions. I am considering Grothama versus Ghalta for a green stompy build, so I'm kinda just throwing out ideas that I might use for either one.

Shana42, thanks for the suggestions. Oracle and Azusa are too expensive for me to get, so they are not really options. I do like the Swordtooth, though, and could add him in time. I do have an Exploration, so I may add that in. I thought about Crash of Rhino Beetles, but I worry about how many lands I'll keep on the battlefield. I can get 10 on the field rather consistently, but when I start bouncing, that worries me. I'll keep a tab on it, and see. I'd like to add a Burgeoning too, but its getting pricey.

if you want redundancy on affects around land drops their is Oracle of Mul Daya which allows for additional lands and can pull lands from the top of your deck.

there is also Azusa, Lost but Seeking who gives you Exploration on a 1/2 body for 2 colorless additional mana.

Crash of Rhino Beetles could be a nice beater/trampler as long as you can consistently get to 10 lands quickly otherwise its just a 5/5 trample for 5

Roil Elemental can be fun with landfall stealing your opponents creatures but it is frail at only 3/2 and costs 6 mana

Wayward Swordtooth is another Exploration on a body this time 5/5 for 3 but does require you to have the city's blessing.

Also also, Woodborn Behemoth and Crash of Rhino Beetles, these become ridiculously large while you just do what your deck normally does.

I got my opponent to scoop tonight, actually. Lol.

He was playing Green Stompy and I was playing a fixed NV.

I had out Caustic Crawler and Rampaging Baloths with a stack of 8 or 9 tokens. Those were literally my only creatures. He kept trying his best to play stuff, but I kept killing with removal. During the turn I had four lands enter, I took out his Yisan, the Wanderer Bard who had a Divinity Counter on it via That Which Was Taken. Really pissed him off super bad because he was up to Yisan's 4th use.

The next turn, when my lands all untapped, I played Crash of Rhino Beetles (The third creature I played all game, mind you) and he scooped, lmao.

I had been using Caustic Crawler to constantly kill off his Commander; Reki, the History of Kamigawa. He was getting MAAAAD, lmao.

I was recently thinking that Xenagos, God of Revels could be useful in a deck like this? As you have cards like Baloth Woodcrasher, Centaur Vinecrasher, Crash of Rhino Beetles, Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar and Terravore. There's plenty of other creatures that can be big too like Rubblehulk and Ulvenwald Hydra and so this might be something I include in my list I think some time to try out.

I have added a few utility lands to my deck also such as Arch of Orazca, and Bojuka Bog which I just thought I would share as you might not even have thought of using them yourself.

Traverse the Outlands and or Boundless Realms are cards that I think you should consider for here too.
