Some notable inclusions that you have excluded so far: Green Sun's Zenith, Chord of Calling, Soothsaying, Genesis Hydra, and Waker of the Wilds. The last two aren’t what I’d call “notable”, but they are passable mana sinks that can do something, if not something great. Good luck to you, you already had a great deal of what I had in mind in your list already.

Thinking of swapping out Smothering Abomination for Beast Whisperer. Seems a bit better if your not hitting combo right away or you have another card to trigger Food Chain. I suppose Genesis Hydra could also go.

@NominaeThanks for your reply. Lots of cool beaters in that bunch. I'm especially fond of Genesis Hydra in there and Combustible Gearhulk for either draw or damage. Been looking at the Hornet Queen while testing I found doing 3 dedication has been troublesome for my Tempo with this deck at times. Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar Would bring a lot of hurt in this deck as having 6 to 8 lands at turn 5 isn't strange in this deck.

As to the others they sure look great for in the deck but their bodies seem to be easily dealt with assuming I have to fight with them I generally want big bad beaters. The bigger they are the more they need to trade for getting rid of them.

Hey, if you're looking for big beaters, you can look at eldrazis with Artisan of Kozilek.. In jund, you can have Kresh the Bloodbraided, Butcher of Malakir, Corpsejack Menace works with your commander and kresh.. Prossh, Skyraider of Kher Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar Protean Hulk, Combustible Gearhulk Verdurous Gearhulk Noxious Gearhulk.. Hornet Queen can make your ennemies attack into 1/1 deathtouch which is fun There's a lot of dragons stuff such as Hellkite Overlord, Hellkite Tyrant, Bogardan Hellkite Dragonlord Atarka..

There's some big stuff lovers such as Spearbreaker Behemoth, Genesis Hydra..

For big green stuff and ramp, you can look at my

Maybe some of those cards cost a lil' bit over 5$, i'm not sure on some prices, but I'll look for cards that benefits always having to attack or always be attacked from now on, and I might get back to you ! Good luck on your deck, Thantis seems really fun !
