Iehovah Crystalline Crawler never thought about this card will have to consider it. Winding Constrictor I like but i don't like, for the same reason i like but don't like Doubling Season If im playing someone that is using a Poison deck it helps them (to my knowledge). The Cathars' Crusade + Ghave, Guru of Spores combo is actually my favorite combo. Simple and with a good mana combo its game.

Whitehamma yeah! he can also easily go infinite!

Ashnod's Altar + Ghave, Guru of Spores + Undying from Mikaeus + any creature that doesn't already come in with +1/+1 counters.

Sac a creature with undying to the alter, get 2 mana, spend one to remove the +1/+1 counter on the undying and repeat! Infinite mana, inifite saproling tokens! >:)

Personally I like the Crystalline Crawler + Corpsejack Menace / Winding Constrictor + Cathars' Crusade + Ghave, Guru of Spores Combo. It has quite a few parts but they are all good on their own.

Filth Ghave, Guru of Spores + Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest + Corpsejack Menace + 1 Saproling that is what i had on the field earlier and each had 29 +1/+1 counters on them in 3 turns had 10 lands and would make a token, sac a token, repeat. Then sacrificed all to Altar of Dementia game over.

I am posting a comment because of the Advertise your deck game forum. I can't see shit i would change there may be a few things i would say but I don't know what all synergizes with what. I mean it looks like everything goes together so who knows what taking one thing out does to 20 strategies. I guess though since i play a Ghave, Guru of Spores deck I have a good infinite colorless mana combo that you could use in this deck. It would work wonders with sacrificing. My combo is Ghave, Guru of Spores Ashnod's Altar Parallel Lives Cathars' Crusade you don't need the cathar's crusade but man does it buff everyone fast with the combo. The combo you can use is a little different. You have the token doubler Anointed Procession and Ashnod's Altar so you would need something like Thopter Squadron which you have a thopter card already so you could use them also to sac another similar card is Pentavus all have similar effects to Ghave, Guru of Spores

Brolamog_the_Infinite_Higher on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

I have to say, this tier list is bad. Ishkanah, Grafwidow is nowhere near a high power level Commander, and to put the Spider Tribal Commander above Edgar Markov , Athreos, God of Passage and Skullbriar, the Walking Grave is absurd. Not saying those decks should be raised a tier, I'm just saying they should be ranked higher than a jank spider tribal commander. I also think there's a bias towards infinite mill combos, as Circu, Dimir Lobotomist , Oona, Queen of the Fae and Ambassador Laquatus are not at all comparable to Ghave, Guru of Spores , Narset, Enlightened Master and Prossh, Skyraider of Kher who go infinite in much faster and stronger ways. Varolz, the Scar-Striped is the biggest offender on this list. This is further noted by the deck examples, where the author seemingly pokes fun at Varolz, the Scar-Striped not being that great in cEDH but seems to have a personal bias towards the deck. If we're counting Protean Hulk combo decks as "competitive" there's plenty more worthy commanders to consider. Honestly, this list comes across like the author just put a few decks everyone knows is good at the top (Teferi Stax, Thrasios, ect.) then just based the rest of the list off of personal preference or whatever the local meta is where the author plays.

Back when I started playing, I really liked Elvish Warrior because of its art and flavor text. Same for Elvish Champion

Nowadays Ghave, Guru of Spores is my favorite, though I also really like Earthcraft and Doubling Season (both of which just happen to be in my Ghave deck.)

So CheapCanadianrototype, my local meta is heavy combo and aggro, with Ghave, Guru of Spores , Athreos, God of Passage , Najeela, the Blade-Blossom and Edgar Markov and no control at all. Thanks for the other suggestions though!
