Enchantment Creature — Human
Creature and enchantment spells you control can't be countered.
: Target land you control becomes an X/X Elemental creature with trample and haste until end of turn, where X is the number of enchantments you control. It's still a land.

Destiny Spinner Discussion
1 day ago
As much as I love kogla, it's no Cloudstone Curio. It's a big removal spell that hits hard and blows up annoying threats like Damping Spheres against our Gaea's Cradle and storm turns or a Cursed Totem shutting down our creatures.
It can combo with Hyrax Tower Scout, yes, but combos with no other card in the deck, it can't GOG or even properly survive many wipes and save your key pieces, because we run like only Karametra's Acolyte, Destiny Spinner, and a few other humans.
It's also twice the CMC, and so I'd go for curio for just comboing. If it's an anti-stax piece you want though, Kogla is a bomb.

precociousapprentice: I'm a little confused by the end of your comment and I wanted to understand what list you're running and if I could see the list as well for clarification. My takeaway was that you're running your variation of her and I am absolutely honored :).
Hyrax Tower Scout: As I've mentioned in my last update, this card is just amazing and I wholeheartedly agree with your stance on it. I just need to come up with 2 slots that won't spike up my AVG cmc. So far, adding this and Kogla, the Titan Ape would definitely replace Cloudstone Curio as a more reliable contingency. I'm actively looking to slot this in, so stay tuned, the moment I figure it out it's going in. :)
Destiny Spinner: Before this card came out I would stay up at night trying to justify Elemental Uprising, Natural Affinity, or Sylvan Awakening just so I could animate the cradle lands during explosive Crop Rotation turns. At the end, those cards were deemed useless since they did nothing outside of animating cradle lands. Then Destiny Spinner was printed and it gave us everything we wanted out of Elemental Uprising, WHILE being a counter that can block Tymna the Weaver. So, I'm super happy I could put you on to its applications.
Emerald Medallion: I have to say, one of the selling points I got when it came to removing it was its uselessness during draw-out turns and BOY has that been a good selling point. I hate drawing this when I rather have a creature. I low-key miss it, but it hasn't crippled the deck in the slightest.
Eldritch Evolution/Natural Order: I've had this discussion before and these two are unfortunately non-negotiable, we love straight to the field tutors that can practically get us anything in the deck.
Tangle Wire: as you've stated, it's a perfect way to slow the game down to our level and to add to its inherent ability to break parity, the Flash mechanic puts us further ahead by allowing us to flash in spells during the tap trigger.

Some elves may help a bit. Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves and Priest of Titania can all help with getting your commander down early and can help pay for the buff activation. I've found Lotus Cobra useful to especially when you're already running cards like Scapeshift. Lasly, Titania, Protector of Argoth and Destiny Spinner would be very good in here too.

Looks like a solid build, that does exactly what it aims to!
Ogre Battledriver does silly things with mary's tokens. For the longest time grabbing him and Avenger of Zendikar off of a Tooth and Nail for a finisher in my mary deck if i didn't have a board state as a backup win con, though now Finale of Devastation kinda does that better I suppose.
If you were looking to add some more creatures to deck for early game control/blockers...Conclave Mentor, Nightshade Peddler, Pir, Imaginative Rascal, and even Goblin Sharpshooter depending on your deathtouch enabler count can absolutely clean up. Destiny Spinner can give you a leg up against Blue decks.
Also the Sun Titan, Reveillark, Karmic Guide, Eternal Witness, Saffi Eriksdotter recursion package does wonderful things in a Mary shell, letting you reset after non exile wipes or get infinite mana off of Ashnod's Altar, my version is a creature heavy shell because my meta swings for the fences and has entirely too much spot removal (we all have trust issues)
Big budget I would recommend Earthcraft because it can let you explode and win in a single turn against certain matchups. There's also always Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith to solidify a win in a single turn.
Just a spattering of thoughts, this was my first edh deck and i've been tweaking it various directions for as long as been playing EDH. An amazing, versatile commander in great colors.

@RNR_Gaming actually Yisan has become much stronger within the wake of the Flash banning, and while Demonic Consultation endgames are incredibly strong, the lists still reliant on Isochron Scepter are easily preyed on with the Caustic Caterpillar/Collector Ouphe builds, and even before then the old Ravenous Slime builds were really strong.
I'll admit, green as a midrange color has been lagging behind white, which due to Drannith Magistrate/Aven Mindcensor has been given a ton, Collector Ouphe in the command zone is still letting Yisan get free wins time and time again, as well, it's become incredibly resilient to the countermagic of the blue based consult lists with Allosaurus Shepherd and Destiny Spinner's recent releases, I mean in the last 3-4 years, Veil of Summer, Force of Vigor, Ravenous Slime (I mean, it was super big in Yisan for the age of Hulk), Kenrith's Transformation, Manglehorn, Runic Armasaur, Finale of Devastation (easily the best wincon), Castle Garenbrig, Blast Zone, Prismatic Vista, etc. all help the list in both value and consistency.
While I'd argue that it actually has been doing better than most partner powerhouses in the past (Tymna/Tana, Tymna/Kraum, Thrasios/Vial Smasher) due to new cards making the tutor effect more and more powerful, the format also homogenized around the consult+value+interactive strategy. While yes, Thrasios/Tymna, Kenrith, Najeela, Gitrog, Kess, and a few others are tier 1, Yisan is too. The reason artifact based Iso-rev strategies aren't as popular as they were pre-flash is because in the time flash was the big thing, Collector Ouphe and Force of Negation were printed. I mean, Drannith Magistrate too, but that card less-so, as that was really after the banning.

Looking for some cards to finish out a deck:

With Destiny Spinner I like the early body that has some weight behind her at 2/3, the fact that she protects almost my entire deck from being countered, that she counts as an enchantment for her own ability, and to trigger the Champion and Archon. As a later game play she may not be as useful as early on but the counting as an enchantment always helps, especially if it leads to drawing with Champion or generating another Pegasus

Yeah needing consistent draws is what caused me to try out my new setup, I wanted to ensure I had what I needed ASAP.
Have you found Destiny Spinner worth having? I had thought about including some myself but didnt have enough confidence in its usefulness.
