buenoexcellente:

I originally had Reservoir in there, but pulled it after testing showed it to be unnecessary.

Once you achieve a lock (Orb of Dreams / Frozen AEther + Static Orb / Back to Basics / Floodbringer or Sakura-Tribe Scout / etc + Words of Wind + Retreat to Coralhelm etc.), it's very hard for opponents to wiggle out. The most typical kill is infinite loop with Sunscorched Desert. Otherwise you just beat down under the lock.

My personal favorites are commanders like Patron of the Moon or Kefnet the Mindful, taking fringe cards like Flooded Shoreline, Floodbringer, Storm Cauldron, and Overburden and making them more viable. In a sense, Nekusar, the Mindrazer is kind of similar, as it takes good cards (like Wheel of Fortune) and gives them purpose.

I agree with several statements that fragarach97 has touched upon. Undergrowth Champion is a phenomenal creature, as is Lotus Cobra (free mana for Moonfolk abilities, seriously, think about its inclusion despite its price). I would agree to cut out the Stalkers for cards with more synergy. Another suggestion I would give is Courser of Kruphix, which gives life in addition to land, and greatly assists in prolonging matches.

Sakura-Tribe Scout is a brilliant inclusion, but I am not a fan of Skyshroud Ranger. Instead, consider:

Moonfolk aren't necessarily bad, they just need the support from cards like those listed above. Some do pull more weight than others, however. I would lose Oboro Breezecaller if nothing else. Its ability is not worth its cost, and Floodbringer is much better for the slot (it's usually more beneficial to deprive an opponent a land than to untap one of your own for the same cost). Also, Uyo isn't as effective in this deck as it could be unless some of your own instants and sorceries are included as well. Other things to consider:

Hi, all. I'm relatively new here, but not new to Magic. However, I was on a long hiatus, and just recently got back into Magic since my kids dug up some of my cards and got interested. Since then, Commander became a thing, and I am hooked on the format. I don't play competitively, mostly casual, and in as big a group I can find (right now its usually 3-4).

To give an idea of when I dropped off the map, it was during the Kamigawa rotation. At that time, I built a casual deck built around getting the hand size up and winging with creatures like Multani, Maro-Sorcerer, Descendant of Masumaro, Masumaro, First to Live, Maro, Sylvan Yeti, and Soramaro, First to Dream.

The idea was to use cards from the Kamigawa block to return lands to my hand, try to draw cards, and hit with the biggies. I ran cards like Oboro Envoy, Oboro Breezecaller, Floodbringer, Elder Pine of Jukai, Soratami Mirror-Mage, Inner Calm, Outer Strength, Graceful Adept, and Soratami Rainshaper. They all had some decent utility in bouncing the land cards. I didn't play EDH at the time, and the deck really never took off for me. I loved the concept behind it, but couldn't really make it work well in a 60-card casual format.

But now, with the possibilities of Commander at hand, I figured there's got to be some way to make this theme work, if not to win, at least to be able to play out for a while. I also had a casual deck I tried to build around Squirrel Wrangler and Groundskeeper, which would fit into a blue/green Commander deck, as well.

So, with all that said, I was hoping I could get some suggestions from the community here as for making this theme EDH-worthy. I'm looking at blue/green primarily, but not exclusively. To start, I need a Commander. I thought maybe Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, but maybe Edric, Spymaster of Trest would be better? Perhaps Tamiyo, Field Researcher?

Another problem I have is after being out for so long, I'm playing catch-up as to what's available. I figured the posters here probably have a good working knowledge of what would fit into a deck themed this way.

Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. I run fairly budget, but I've got some decent stuff in my collection, and will splurge at times if I think its worth it, so suggest anything.

Thanks for taking the time to help me out!
