Yeah they all look cool! I think this year's decks will be very good investments. They always do great with the commander product, but the themes this year seem like they will be specifically popular. Probably more popular than last year especially because we are dealing with broader kinds of themes then specific different tribal decks. And having multicolored Planeswalkers with interesting abilities like these for Commanders will be something many people want. I expect this Commander product to be just as sought-after and valuable in the future as recent years have been...if not, then probably way more so. So far all three of the first cards officially previewed are totally awesome. Genesis Wave has always been one of my favorite cards and we just got a new one. That artifact creature that lets you skip Mana cost on your commander is so cool. And who doesn't like a Gilded Lotus that draws three cards?

Sword of the Paruns and Staff of Domination for better chances of getting the infinite mana combo. Walking Ballista lets you convert that into infinite damage. Looks light on card draw and post wipe recovery. Zendikar Resurgent, Primordial Sage, Vanquisher's Banner, Grave Sifter, Grim Flowering have all showed promise for me. Genesis Wave is ridiculous.

+1, I love the list! I love all of the walkers, would you consider Genesis Wave?

Well, the name of this deck doesn't hide what you are trying to do! I would recommend Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone or the like over Rampant Growth, though Nature's Lore is just as good.

Genesis Wave is super cheap and can do work in builds like this any day, commonly you hit so many lands you can still cast a ton of stuff it you dropped itw tith like 15 mana up, Rapid Hybridization and Nature's Claim are very powerful cheap removal in your color, if you want that.

You can also run Arcane Denial as a better version of Counterspell (the reason it is considered better than counterspell is because it replaces itself. With Counterspell, you are down a card and so if the opponent who's spell you countered, leaving two players above you in terms of cards, with Arcane Denial, only one opponent is above you in cards, the person who you countered.)

nice, my favorite archetype: mono-g ramp! First off, you need to shore up the ramp side of this deck.

Two cards, 4 words: Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl. The most powerful ramp combo in modern.

Next consider 3x of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Play some more devotion style creatures that smash face like Leatherback Baloth to help get it pumping quickly.

Add some Thragtusks to help with burn, it also fairs well against most removal too.

Craterhoof Behemoth is your best finisher. Consider big booty spells like Genesis Wave and Chord of Calling for when you get to massive amounts of mana.

Personally I would trim alot of the fat your deck has, for example Parallel Lives isnt as useful as stuff like Heroic Intervention for a deck that wants to play alot of creatures in a format with plentiful amounts of board wipes. I'd also cut stuff like Garruk's Horde that doesn't really hold alot of value in modern.

Lastly, I would add Garruk Wildspeaker because the card works amazing with your Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl and is just a solid card all around. 3/3s on command is also amazing.

Made a small tweak to the land balance. Looking at 1 or 2 mana sinks; would be especially nice if I found one that made +1/+1 counters, but I'm not familiar with any. Something like Genesis Wave could be great, though it would probably put some kicker spells in the graveyard. Genesis Hydra might be better. Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Wolfbriar Elemental, and Rock Slide already serve as sinks. Neheb, the Eternal looks like a good candidate to remove, as I generally don't need much more mana by the time he's castable.
