fuzzyllama on saskia double trouble

Helm of the Host also Virtus doesn't combo with saskia's ability. would also suggest some evasion like Mother of Runes , Champion of Lambholt , Den Protector could add some beaters like Zurgo Helm Smasher, Rampaging Baloths , Giant Adephage , Atarka, World Render also Bloom Tender & Neheb, the Eternal would generate ridiculous mana. Worth noting that Saskia's ability only triggers of combat damage and not loss of life.

Misc.: Drop - Angler Drake, Exclusion Mage, Ezuri's Archers, Filligree Familiar, Mercurial Chemister, Ornithopter, Spawnwrithe, Pelt collector, Tilonalli's Summoner, Warbreak Trumpeteer, and Wildfire Eternal. Add- Cloud of Faeries , Great Whale , Temur Sabertooth (and Equilibrium / Tidespout Tyrant mentioned above), Fierce Empath , Den Protector , Stratus Dancer , Ainok Survivalist , Ogre Battledriver , and Momir Vig, Simic Visionary .

Also, you 100% need to put Ancestral Statue in. Targets itself with its' own ETB and goes infinite due to eventually costing nothing to cast.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Bwearmp on Omnath, Locus of Rage - Eternal Brawl

Dragonmaster Outcast is fantastic. Sometimes I play it early just to see if they have removal since I can get it back with Den Protector or Greenwarden of Murasa . Woodland Wanderer might be sketchy include because of Converge but I figured an on-flavor (elemental) 4/4 for 4 with upside isn't half bad. And I've cast it with Unknown Shores and/or Shaman of Forgotten Ways a few times to get an extra counter or two.

Oh, and consider Eternal Witness and Den Protector for a little recursion.

Bloodspore Thrinax could be nice. Even for without using the devour trigger, with all the graft and counter spam you have, it could be like having another Master Biomancer.

Den Protector is also another one of my favorites in my Ezuri, Claw of Progress deck.

I would potentially run Tempt with Discovery instead of Cultivate in this build, since you'll likely have a lot of cards in hand to begin with. Plus it would let you grab a useful nonbasic land to have early game. You might not want even more lands in hand unless you were running cards that let you play more lands each turn.

An alternative could be Splendid Reclamation for any lands you may have pitched to the GY early game, or if your max hand size was removed, but that may be a stretch.

ducttapedeckbox on Muldrotha help

Eternal Witness and Den Protector are great at recurring Villainous Wealth since they can hit everything. But yeah I plan on running it as a finisher in my Muldrotha deck in progress.

Right now I also have things like Sepulchral Primordial and Diluvian Primordial and then Panharmonicon to abuse all of the ETB abilities I have. Not direct win conditions but a ton of value.

Here are some other options you could consider Bloodsoaked Champion, Goblin Bushwhacker, Pelt Collector, Rhys the Redeemed, Chief of the Edge, Chief of the Scale, Decorated Champion, Den Protector, Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, Hidden Dragonslayer, Rushblade Commander, Thorn Lieutenant, Voltaic Brawler, and Blood-Chin Fanatic.

Also a quick note about the mana base. Having so few basics in the deck could be quite dangerous. Certainly there is always the possibility of not hitting the correct colors, but having more basics lets you use more flexible ramp and as is, a Blood Moon or Ruination would be crushing.
