Here are some suggestions:

I hope that this hepled you, and I want to mention that I'm heppy to see Wasitora with her cat-dragons in at least one deck :)

CaptCreek on Radha and Her Rowdy Raiders

multimedia Thanks! It's nice to hear that I at least have some basic idea of what I'm doing. The list before this one was basically all in on token generators like Avenger of Zendikar and Dragonlair Spider , and the early drops would just make tokens, which is still nice, and I want some efficient token makers in the deck since it helps generate mana with Radha, but I found that with all of those high cost creatures, the deck played slower than I would have liked. I opted to take out most of the less efficient or non-repeatable token generators for mana dorks, so I could more easily get Radha out on turn 2-3 to set up for some big plays.

I like all of your suggestions! I'll definitely be getting a Game Trail , Genesis Wave , and Champion of Lambholt and slot them in. I also agree about Vitalizing Wind , but it's basically a placeholder card at the moment. I will admit though, it's always hilarious to take out a player out of nowhere with a 9 mana instant (It's actually happened more times than my friends would like to admit.)

I do have a copy of Wood Elves in my binder, and I'll definitely slot it in and see how it performs. Ramp is always nice, and the fact that it'll be able to search for 3 of my dual lands is very appealing. I also have a Farseek , so I could slot that in as well!

I really appreciate the detailed response! I really want this deck to be fast and fun, while still having a fair shot against the widest variety of power levels as possible. I know I'm a novice deckbuilder and still not well versed in "Power Level/Assessment", but it's reassuring to hear that I'm at least on the right track!

@seshiro_of_the_orochi: I've tried Taurean Mauler before! However I've prioritized creatures with evasion (like Trample or Flying) as everyone seems to have chumps to block. If it does not have native evasion, it should provide other abilities or benefits. In this case, I replaced Taurean Mauler with Dragonlair Spider so that I'd have chump blockers of my own.

Hey, nice changes, Xenagos is a hell of a fun card. He's especially good as the Commander of a deck with Greater Good :)

Now that you have Stomping Ground and Sheltered Thicket consider Nature's Lore or Farseek replacing Rampant Growth ? Lore or Farseek is good land ramp because it can search for a Forest dual land, much better than Growth. Cinder Glade is another Forest dual land to consider for the manabase.

Dragonlair Spider , Hanweir Garrison and Ant Queen are budget creatures who are sources of tokens. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Xenagos, the Reveler are Planeswalkers who won't break the bank are sources of tokens. Another direction to consider since you added both Rabblemaster and Warboss is adding Krenko, Mob Boss . Krenko can be a source of lots of Goblin tokens.

I would replace Garruk's Packleader with Beast Whisperer .He costs one mana less and works with all creatures not only the strong.

I think Dragonlair Spider fits in very well with your commander's theme.

Your temperatures are usually very expensive (because they are strong) so I would add a little more ramp and maybe something to get them back from the cemetery. The two cards I can imagine with you thereby quite well: Genesis or Traverse the Outlands

Also I like the idea of dragonb0y777 pretty much

I have a few Graverobber Spider cards already. I have considered sticking him in the deck, but I already have him in another Golgari deck of mine. I don't particularly care for Dragonlair Spider because it isn't modern legal. I'm sure my play group would still let me use it, but I think it might be a bit too strong if it's banned even in modern. I haven't seen Silklash Spider before, though. I'll have to think on that one. It definitely has potential.

Heavy blue invites playing Carpet of Flowers but that sorta depends on how many colors in addition to the blue. Skullclamp only kills your elves really, might be worth putting in a Craterhoof Behemoth package in case the one hit wonder doesnt work out. Dragon Broodmother and Dragonlair Spider are my favorite gruul cards for that
