Deck looks great, but i think we've found a new champion for best art on a magic card: Frog Tongue.

Here are a few great includes that I should have mentioned the first time - Scythe of the Wretched to steal creatures you fight, Foe-Razer Regent to get lots of value, Darksteel Plate for protection and nonstop fights, and Frog Tongue for another enchantment cantrip.
As for my own version, I'm leaning toward focusing on the Hydra ability and cutting most of the aura / fight mechanic ability, except for Whip Silk because it's repeatable and just too good not to have. Thanks and good luck!

Needs more Fortitude
Frog Tongue is a cantrip
Also also: I've been Wombating for a long time, and I can tell you with certainty that when you play against people, they are going to try to kill your boy, because they lack both culture and sophistication. Hexproof and Indestructible instants like Ranger's Guile , Vines of Vastwood , and Mortal's Resolve are pretty clutch.
Seeing another Wombat deck pleases me greatly. Godspeed, friend.

I agree; 27 lands is way too few in EDH. I generally run 37-39 plus a few pieces of ramp. I'd take out the following cards and replace them with lands:
- Archers of Qarsi
- Cloudcrown Oak
- Kessig Recluse
- Lifecraft Cavalry
- Quilled Wolf
- Radjan Spirit
- Tajuru Pathwarden
- Vulpine Goliath
- Frog Tongue
- Sheltered Aerie, and
- Spidersilk Net.
If you like Mono- stompy, I highly recommend Omnath, Locus of Mana as your commander, as he both ramps you can grows ridiculously large with any unused mana you have.
Hope this helps! In addition, I recommend buying a preconstructed Commander deck for anywhere from $25-$50; they have some valuable cards and some pretty awesome commanders!

Okay, I've played around with this some more and am working out some ideas.
So, finally, in some way, I agree. You don't need Utopia Sprawl unless you're playing 3+ casting cost spells. Since you aren't it's probably more a hindrance than an advantage. So I bow to your wisdom here.
As far as types of enchantments, I've recently replaced Abzan Runemark and Leafcrown Dryad with Rancor, Hyena Umbra and Spider Umbra and noticed a marked improvement. My hand is now coming down into play where I used to sit on cards. So, again, I also bow to your wisdom here.
But here is where I'm diverging. So far, I prefer Aura Gnarlid, Kruphix's Insight and Ancestral Mask to Angelic Gift and Kor Skyfisher. I realize you get some speed and card drawing from Angelic Gift and Kor Skyfisher, but the hammer you can put down mid-game with Aura Gnarlid, Kruphix's Insight and Ancestral Mask is immense. And if you can couple an Aura Gnarlid with an umbra, it gets really ugly for your opponent fast.
It was pretty common in my playtesting to be attacking with a 1/1 hexproof, a 10/10 hexproof and an 8/8 unblockable umbra'd Aura Gnarlid on turn five. But that was only all possible with some combination of Aura Gnarlid, Kruphix's Insight and Ancestral Mask. But I admit, this is probably the key difference between a full aggro hexproof deck and a mid-game hexproof deck. And for now, I am willing to settle for the latter.
So that said, I get the idea behind Kor Skyfisher to attack quickly, but I struggle with why you're playing Angelic Gift. You can use it to draw a card. Fine. But flying doesn't really get you anything on it's own and since your're not playing Ancestral Mask, Aura Gnarlid or Yavimaya Enchantress your enchantment count isn't critical. It would seem like for just drawing a card, Frog Tongue is better because it's cheaper.
Overall, I feel like you'd be better off just playing a good enchantment. I feel like Briar Shield, Lunarch Mantle, Favor of the Overbeing, Glaring Aegis or Sun Clasp are better options. So far you've had far better ideas than mine, so what am I missing here?

Yeah, the clear option is to step it up to Derevi, and then make it a real deck.
I agree, abundant growth is pretty weak on its own, but very useful in enchantress, especially when things have totem armor and when the only source of cards is the oh so shitty enchantress cards that are included. I think I should actually include more cantrip enchantments for usage with the enchantresses (Frog Tongue maybe)...
