From Beyond is a good mana producer. Natural Connection is good for ramp... in standard, but if you don't care about the format try Rampant Growth and Fog(so you can get to the late game with your creatures).

Snap157 - I went full-tilt balls-out on the combo here - only 5 cards (some of the removal) aren't potentially pieces of the token machine. Even with a few things getting hit with removal, by turn 7 or 8 I usually have enough token generation combined w/ pumps or doublers to win that turn.
To be fair, this deck has been brought to it's knees by a Fog, but that's not usually the case.

This deck is only used for casual play with friends not tournament use. The Cascading Cataracts are there mainly to be indestructible for when i turn them into elemental's with the help of Nissa but now I have changed her for Samut they aren't as effective and may look to change them anyway. I think I prefer the defense of Fog and Naturalize that attack of Lightning Bolt. all of my friends decks have artifacts and enchantments hence the Naturalize.

Like, how good do you want to make this?

Personally, i'd replace Mothdust Changeling with Sakura-Tribe Elder for ramp and decent chump block. Rancor seems a bit redundant with the aurochs, i'd replace it with Groundswell or Might of the Masses.

Hey, I've been out of commission for a couple of weeks camping. Good for the soul, but it has definitely kept me from responding to comments.
As for C17 cards to consider:
Stalking Leonin looks to be interesting, but I feel like it would be too soft of a deterrent. I am not sure what the psychological effect of the threat of a possible retribution would be, but I am afraid it would be much less than an assured retribution. I would love to hear about your experience with it though, MegaMatt13.
Disrupt Decorum will definitely be a card I trial, possibly in a Threaten effect slot. This will be a massive board state disrupter, if nothing else, and could enhance my general strategy. I may find it a little too disruptive, though, and it may disrupt my general plan of allowing each players' deck to accomplish my goal of winning. I often find that forcing things with this deck end up with less than optimal results. We shall see.
Teferi's Protection has a home in this deck, I just have to figure out where to fit it. This is a definite. Amazing protection. Potentially the most powerful Fog effect ever printed. Sort of combines the boardstate protection of Boros Charm with everything Dawn Charm does, only better. It artfully combats board wipes, it is an asymmetric Fog for you alone for every turn until your next, and it can keep you out of the fray for a setup round before a big game ending attack of your own.
Mathas, Fiend Seeker is a card that will likely be antisynergistic with the deck, similar to wrath effects. I want them to keep their stuff, just point it away from me. Definitely not a viable replacement for Queen Marchesa as commander. An interesting commander in it's own right, and would even play well with many of the cards in this list, but with a different battle plan. I don't plan to include it.
Curse of Opulence is a really interesting card that may find a home in the deck. It combines ramp with encouraging people to aim threats elsewhere. With a CMC of , it fits the low curve nicely. I imagine Curse of Opulence could have a similar effect on opponent choices as Duelist's Heritage, but with the added effect of ramping me as opposed to just beating down my opponents. I definitely want to trial this card. The talk on the usual forums makes this card seem worthless and a sign of casual play, which is perfectly in line with the goals of the deck.
The last thing I was thinking about is inclusion of Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. She comes down super late, but she makes the world a much more dangerous place for every other player, and a safer place for me. She does paint a target on me, but I would hope that I have the game relatively secure by the time she comes down. She makes all of my symmetric effects very asymmetrical. On her own, she is a powerhouse wincon. I have been resisting, but I think that many reasonable voices are convincing me to at least trial her. She will replace Gisela, Broken Blade as a more effective wincon.

While Wear / Tear is an excellent card, bear in mind that with recent rules changes it cannot be imprinted on Isochron Scepter as it has a CMC of 3. I recommend putting them in the sideboard.
