SynergyBuild Does the ramp work or should I change it? I have noticed occasionally in testing it won't kick in till late game or I'll only draw ramp cards and not have anything to do with the mana. Is this a normal occurrence in commander decks? Or does my ramp have a problem? If it is a problem how would I solve it? should I have more tutor ramp cards like Farseek or should I go with cards like Arbor Elf/Elvish Mystic?

Additionally, what should I do in terms of a sideboard for this deck?

Hey there, nice deck! I brewed and played very actively in the cEDH community for about 2 years ago. Unfortunately Noble Hierarch is illegal in this deck because it actively taps for mana. I would replace it with Bloom Tender, who can be downright insane. You have a slightly higher mana curve for cEDH so it'll help power your spells out. I'd also try to make room for Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves and Priest of Titania. The 1 turn difference between those guys and Rampant Growth or Farseek is hugely important in cEDH due to the goldfishy speed of the format.

Blood Moon is an insanely powerful effect, but not so much that you don't want to run utility and dual lands for it. Add the shocks, ABUR duals, Gaea's Cradle, Ancient Tomb, and all the etb untapped rainbow lands, etc if you can afford them. You really can't play a 3 colored deck with such color intensive cards like Anger of the Gods (which I'd cut btw) and Aura of Silence without them.

I tried messing around with a marath stax/combo build last year for a few weeks. I tested it for a few games and like most other stax decks in the format, the deck really struggles to close out the game quick enough to keep up with your combo opponents' powerful top decks/tutor densities. However, there are still some decent ideas in there and its possible that I may have shelved the deck too quickly. Here's the link if you're curious, I'd highly recommend at least copying the mana base and possibly swapping out the Strip Mine and Wasteland for colored sources.

Feel free to hmu if you need any extra advice. cEDH was my main format for awhile and I played it exclusively with and against some of the best in the cEDH community. Best of luck!

Update time!

Pelt Collector is awesome. It has unseated Experiment One as the best one drop available. So to accommodate this change I have removed Elvish Mystic and 2 experiments in favor of the full playset of pelt collector (pelty). The fact that pelty triggers off of creatures dying makes him a much better top deck, as you can play him pre combat and if any creature trades lil pelty will grow. In addition the trample clause is icing on the cake. It facilitates more aspect of hydra blowouts.

The second change is removing Leatherback Baloth in favor of 2 Groundbreaker. This change is for several reasons. 1, I really just want to try the card, it is explosive and helps win out of nowhere. Fits my play style perfectly. 2, with Pelt Collector becoming a 4 of, groundbreaker will always trigger it, almost 100% of the time it will trigger pelty twice. 3, it allows for the curve of T1 pelty, T2 geist, T3 steel leaf, T4 groundbreaker + aspect. That is just the dream! If anyone has any experience with these cards please share them! I am keen to learn as much as possible!!

I would add in some mana dorks like Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic to ramp faster as-well as some card advantage like Lead the Stampede.

Also, to cover this as well, just in case, your titles says “sharing the same card”, and you cannot share resources or cards on the battlefield. For example your teammate cannot tap your Elvish Mystic to get the mana. Likewise, you cannot tap your Elvish Mystic and “donate” the mana to your teammate.

If I had, for example, an Elvish Mystic and my partner has one two, would it be alright? If it is, how about legendary cards? Do they follow the same ruling? I have had some difficulty finding a specific ruling on this topic and wanted to confirm the ruling. As far as I can tell there is no problem. All help is appreciated and I look forward to your answers. Thank you in advance.

I'd definitely add 2 more copies of Ancient Stirrings, and bring up to 4 Expedition Map

Then, why don't you add Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star? It gives you green mana and also lets you draw a card. A cheap alternative could be Prophetic Prism. To make space for theese cards I'd cut Elvish Mystic, Elvish Rejuvenator and Llanowar Elves

Some very budget creatures could fit this deck are Endless One or Bane of Bala Ged, but I also really like Sundering Titan and Artisan of Kozilek
