Describe your plan for us. What are your favorite things to do in the game?

Ramp ramp ramp. When building an EDH think Ramp, Draw, Wincons.

Kodama's Reach , Cultivate , Mind's Eye , Staff of Nin , and work on the land base. Lots of comes in to play tapped lands are not as good as City of Brass , Brushland , Karplusan Forest , Battlefield Forge . Shocks, and checks are good too.

If you like those let me know, and I can help you a little more.

Arthdirith on In My Sword I Trust

Tezzy was in there a while ago, he was alright to say the least. I will consider him as a side board. But if I was to go main, well, I am unsure what to replace him with. As for the land suggestions I like them but I would be a bit unsure what to switch them out with. If I replaced basics Cultivate and Rampant Growth would become more useless, since I only have 10 basics, so diminishing the the number of them overall is probably not good. Also as much as I love those creatures, they don't work with the flow of the deck, I actually had them before a while ago. As per the idea, get Rafiq powered up and kill your opponent in at least two turns.

Rofelos on Derevi Beat Down. (Advice Wanted!)

It looks really solid to me. What might put it over the top is adding Mana Vault , Basalt Monolith and even Gilded Lotus since they're such strong untap targets. Personally I think the backbone of any green edh deck is Cultivate and Kodama's Reach . GL

I was enamored with the idea of powerful sea creatures a kiora as well, however my build focuses entirely on ramping and contro;, using lil mana dorks and counters like Plasm Capture can make a fatty hit the field a lot sooner than you, or your opponent for that matter, might think.

my best suggestion for what you've got going is to go more mana dork's and maybe Cultivate a turn 2 Cultivate has made me soar into bigger and bigger drops.

Unflinching Courage for some lifegain or Garruk, Caller of Beasts for creatures maybe?

I see some ramp with Explosive Vegetation and Cultivate - maybe you could try Explore ?

Otherwise, +1 from me. I've never used Rhys the Redeemed as a general before, and I think I'll give him a shot :)

I'm already running 2 Cultivate , but Kodama's Reach is a good option too. I just put in the Selesnya Cluestone 's in there for draw power. Thanks for the comment.

ryouninja on Kiora's play things (help!!)

You seem to have a very low land count and ramp spells to play these big creatures. Might I suggest Kodama's Reach Cultivate Explore or Skyshroud Claim and Simic Signet or Gilded Lotus to help out.

Remyth on Armory of the Exalted Heroes

I have a friend who runs a Rafiq of the Many EDH deck and we play a lot so I have gotten pretty familiar with how one should play him. It looks like you have a pretty good start but could use some upgrades. First off, with Rafiq, you really want "When X creature deals combat damage to an opponent"-type effects since the double strike means each hit grants you whatever boon it is. The Swords are great examples of this (i.e. Sword of Feast and Famine /Sword of Fire and Ice ). Most of the exalted cards aren't very important - its getting effects that put you ahead. Focusing too much on Exalted lets you get too easily blown out by a simple bounce spell or something similar.

For EDH in general, you want to have ramp and answers to things. Since you are in green, ramp is easy. Throw in some Cultivate or Kodama's Reach or some similar and you are well on your way. Also, Sol Ring and other mana-producing artifacts are powerful. As for answers, you have some decent cards, but EDH is much more about wrath-type effects (board-wipes) than targeted removal. Cards that put cards into libraries (Terminus) are very powerful, as it stops generals, as well as just clearing the board.

I know this is a lot, and that you are trying to get into it with what you have. The deck is decent and should provide fun. I would just keep some of this in mind and maybe start picking up some cards one at a time until you have a better deck. I have a very limited budget for MTG since I am a student and I understand wanting to build with what you have but I think it is reasonable to pick up a card here or there that should help you out. Anyway, just my two cents. Take it or leave it, just make sure you have fun playing!
