Nice Deck, Seems pretty solid, I would just consider adding some of the following tribal cards

Agrothorn on Planet of the Apes

Love the tribal theme!

Of course, there are some great tribal and gruul lands you can add, but then it starts getting expensive. I would consider tagging this as a "budget deck"; imo, budget tribal (espically more obsecure creature types) are the best! Really forces for some creative deck building.

I would check out your mana base and decide if Gruul Turf is a really needed. Personally, i'm not a big fan of these cards due to the risk/slow speed, but if you like them, play them!!

I did a few playtests and it plays a bit slower than expected. I would certainly recommend adding a 4th Kird Ape . Are you open to adding mana accelleration? I'm sure there are a few solid ones that won't be too far outside of theme. Oh, have you considered using an Emerald Medallion ?! Monkeys like to steal shiny things!! I think it would create a lot of value. Urza lands would work nice, but I feel it may be too far from the theme.

I think Alpha Status is a "win more" card in this sorta mana heavy/bigger critter deck, where by the time you play it to have value (e.g. 3 or more creatures on the board, for +4/+4), it may be too late or not as rewarding. Now that I look at some of the oracle wording, some apes are now considered a monkey, so they won't help each other out... boo.

For Monkey Cage , maybe cut 1 because I think you will need a lot of mana to guarantee it to give you value e.g. a creature with mana cost 3 or greater.

Man... I so many ideas!

How about Summit Apes !! Those with your Gorilla Berserkers with first strike and/or lure equipment. Viridian Claw , Nemesis Mask <--maybe too slow?? Spells, Roar of Challenge or Declare Dominance <--bonus gorilla art!!

If you go with the Emerald Medallion , maybe swap out Ravenous Baboons for a bigger green one?

Play around with it and I'll check back!

Chhris: The line has been removed and every other viable line available as of yet has been described in the Kill Loops. The Card Selection categories now reflect the custom categories in the decklist.

These changes were mostly for cosmetics and clarity, but stay tuned as I will be working on this in the coming days. Cards currently being tested: Root Maze , Guardian Project , Krosan Grip , and Emerald Medallion .

Maybe cut Emerald Medallion & Moss Diamond for Mana Crypt & Birds of Paradise ? The latter is more fragile but a turn quicker and has various synergies in the deck. The lower CMC of both cards overall helps against mana screw as well ofc. I think you should consider Myriad Landscape too since it's basically a CMC 3 ramp piece that pulls double duty of helping you stay on curve, although IDK if it should replace a land or nonland then.

I could also see cutting Lifecrafter's Bestiary for either the mentioned Elemental Bond or Guardian Project . While the latter is more expensive, I think you'll draw more cards from it than the Bestiary since you don't need to pay an extra for every single creature spell.

Other than that, those CMC 4+ non-Hydras probably still need to be reduced to an additional extent, up to you to see what's underperforming

J3FF97 & l13199l:

Thank you guys for keeping up with the Yeva. The deck is being worked on day and night. A lot of changes are coming, so stay tuned.

Though it saddens me deeply to lose Paradox Engine , it was never a make it or break it kind of card. Its replacement will most likely be Cloudstone Curio , with the eventual loss of Primal Command we need a new contingency if Temur Sabertooth gets exiled. Force of Vigor , Emerald Medallion , and Shared Summons are currently being tested, which why I don't want to make changes until testing proves their worth over what they replaced.

Right off the bat, 3.14 Average CMC is high for a deck like Merfolk, your curve looks good, just try to add more 2 drops, even if it's just ramp sources Fellwar Stone Mind Stone Coldsteel Heart Sapphire Medallion Emerald Medallion Farseek Nature's Lore Rampant Growth , etc.

Even without extra land draws, a turn 1 Exploration is amazing (but $$$), but there's no better feeling than a T1 Green Sun's Zenith for 0 to fetch Dryad Arbor .

Song of Freyalise could be fun

Overwhelming Stampede seems low power in a deck that doesn't have any huge beaters, Behemoth and Forerunners seems unnecessary when you could run a tutor in place of one. (Also Avenger of Zendikar plays really well with either).

Herald's Horn plays really well with Sylvan Library which also plays well with Descendants' Path

If you're on the market for other counterspells, Dispel Negate Arcane Denial and Disdainful Stroke are great in commander. And Pact of Negation is a commander All-Star if you afford it.

Force of Vigor has been performing amazingly in all my testing if you're interested in it.

Path of Discovery seems.. less than synergistic with no graveyard play.

Deepfathom Skulker or Edric, Spymaster of Trest would both feel right at home

For tutors, I think the most interesting options would be Chord of Calling Shared Summons (New card) Tooth and Nail and ofc, Green Sun's Zenith (T1 Dryad Arbor!)
