Dictate of Karametra Discussion

I love the shenanigans, I would consider Zhur-Taa Ancient , Mana Flare , Heartbeat of Spring , Dictate of Karametra , Mana Reflection because you will always have more lands than your opponents because your commander and this will make it so that bringing back two lands gives you an excessive amount of mana. Traditionally group-hug cards like that will work really assymetrically with you land wiping the board and then putting lands back out, allowing you to get your commander back out quickly (-3) him and now you have a lot more mana to work with. Whenever you have a planeswalker commander it's not a bad idea to have a few proliferate cards in there as well just to keep up the toughness and in your case allow you to use your (-3) two turns in a row.

I think you need to utilize the ability of ramping with green and elves way more.
Add Elvish Archdruid , Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary , Joraga Treespeaker , Farhaven Elf , Wirewood Channeler and there are plenty more if you search for them. I would include more ramp spells as well, not only Cultivate as you have it, but also Rampant Growth , Explosive Vegetation , Kodama's Reach and so on.
To be honest: For a really fast Eldrazi Deck I would probably go with Nikya of the Old Ways as a commander and add Zhur-Taa Ancient , Neheb, the Eternal , Grand Warlord Radha . But I don't know if you would like to change the deck this much.
So have fun either way, I hope it helps!

Gaddog Teeg would still be a worthy addition to the deck as one of the 99. I think you should consider Revelation , Dictate of Karametra and Otherworldly Journey . Pollen Lullaby is flavourful and totally on theme. Primal Command may also be of some use. One ramp spell is not enough. Explosive Vegetation , Cultivate and Peregrination are worthy ramp. Wild Pair ia a fun addition but not a mandatory one.
Hope this helps!

Big Update: Added in some cards that I already had. Took out some cards I felt didn't contribute enough to the +1/+1 counters, or I had cards which did what the card did, but better. Also adding in both Nissa and Champion of Rhonas may allow me to cheat out some of my more expensive spells, saving mana for adapting those already on the field.

M_Malcom yeah I actually thought about the infinite turns idea but I ended up deciding that a win con that takes one slot vs 2 is just strictly better, thanks for the comment though!
So I gold fished a few hands and learned a few things.
Perfecting this list and my ability to pilot it is going to take ALLOT of practice (I didn't successfully make it through a full loop off gold-fishing, because of my own errors) Piloting this feels much more intensive than piloting storm X)
The combo requires at least 3 green sources for each loop to go infinite in both colors so I switched Explore with Utopia Sprawl . I hope this will be enough fixing if not I might add Sakura-Tribe Elder or Evolving Wilds ...I wish that i could afford Misty Rainforest
I felt like I had a good amount of interaction but felt somewhat light on draw and fixing, this could be because of limited testing though and will keep an eye on it
I still think that the deck is viable in this iteration but I think that it will take some testing and more testing to be competitive. Because of my limited experience of the deck I'm still not sure what set of cards are best for ramp, filter, interaction and in what ratios they need to be in. I could very well be trying to do to much, but I don't think the deck is worth playing (over something else) if we don't include all aspects of the strategy

Flooremoji So I'm comparing the deck to storm (as it is actually very similarly in set up), gifts storm actually fairs decently well post board to GV hate, bouncing just enough spells to go off, this build actually has more interaction in the main and even more post, so I actually don't feel to bad about being disrupted. My main fear is still burn and discard decks, which should still have a large advantage over me.
Maga, Traitor to Mortals is extremely comparable to Blue Sun's Zenith . I haven't really thought about another win con, my thought process is that once I'm going off, my opponent has exhausted all interaction and I'm home free. If was worried about a rogue surgical to my only win con I can use the loop to fill my hand with counters of course.
I don't really see the appeal of Mirror Sheen ? what am i missing?
I've considered a few other single bounce affects, what do you have in mind?
It's pretty much turn 4 consistent, but thats with no interaction from either side. I'm thinking about adding Pact of Negation but that's pricey
Dictate of Karametra is probably the card highest on my list of potential adds. I'm just not sure how to include it or if it even needs to be included. part of me thinks I need to do a 4-2 split or a 3-3 split (to mimic the bears in storm), but the problem is that it's even slower which then means that I need more interaction but I have to make room for it somehow. I'm scared to pull out filter or ramp because it feels really good atm so I'm kind of stuck. The thought of giving my opponent access to all of that extra mana a turn before me terrifies me in this hyper linear metta though. It's really some thing I'll learn from extensive time with the deck (I literally found the combo last night so I'm very new to the build, it will become more refined over time)
I almost picked the deck up tonight to take to an event but I decided it would be better to proxy it and goldfish it until I really understand it. (I'd test it on here but i swear whenever I play test storm on here its like twice as inconsistent on the site as it is in paper, I could just be crazy though)

From what i've seen, the deck is more resiliant to GY hate depending on the version. This is a great asset, and my main problem with the gifts version. Also from what i've seen, the deck can make room for boardwipes and hand desruption before comboing. As you saw, I used Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Maga, Traitor to Mortals as win conditions. Have you found any better ones? How do you feel about adding Mirror Sheen ? Could you imagine some of the blue mass bounce spells in your deck? At what turn does it go off? Have you ever wanted Dictate of Karametra ? How often does giving opp extra mana help them too much? Hope these stimulate you!
