Gravity Well Discussion
2 days ago
I have looked at the deck and all of the comments. I really like this deck, as Doran is a fun commander and has an ability that very few cards have. There is one card I would recommend, but you may feel that it isn't worth it. I feel that even with Spidersilk Armour you may be a little weak to fliers. I know you can tutor a lot, but enchantment removal is quite strong and having only one card that deals with fliers (that is static) may not help. The card is Gravity Well.

Dense Canopy and Bower Passage make it so your flying opponents can't block your creatures either if you want an all out swing fest
Gravity Well and Raking Canopy make your opponents think hard about combat since they will lose flying and or their creatures will take a hit when they swing.
Personally I run Gravity Well in my mono green deck. It has no flying whatsoever so having it is a nice failsafe.

I run a Vorinclex deck that does a lot of what you are looking for ie ramp early then drop big guys late game. Here is a link to the Deck It doesnt run Eldrazi just big green guys but that can be switched about. Basically your going to want to run mana dorks and early mana ramp spells then some mid sizes creatures with utilities spells ie draw power and destroy effects. Then hit um with your fatties.
Green is bad vs flying (and i cant think of many eldrazi that have flying) so ill suggest Silklash Spider, Gravity Well, Cloudthresher, or Sandwurm Convergence. They will help shut down people flying over you to kill. Green also lack many kill cards but they have two of my personal favorites Beast Within turn a fattie into a 3/3 or remove an artifact or enchantment that will win your opponent the game a must include. And last but never least Song of the Dryads my favorite thing is the look on someones face who drops a win con or a high cost commander only to have it turned into a tree.
Like what was already said use edh rec and find out about local meta then you can post a decklist and get some help refining.

I'd rather just turn them into trees (since Torpor Orb does great against ETBs, but is worthless against activated abilities, while turning the creature into a Forest stops both).
The Sandwurm Convergence is good, though! Bit pricey to cast (which usually isn't a problem is this deck, of course, but still)... I also like Gravity Well to protect against flying. I'll sideboard them both (unless it's a deck that focuses on flying, or one like Brago that does scary things after flying, it's usually not a problem for this deck; my scary big creatures can overwhelm them before they can pick away at my life with their flyers, and that fact it usually enough to encourage them to attack someone else instead to avoid my Hydra wrath).

Against flying you have some good answers in green, Gravity Well is good, you could also consider some anti flying board wipes like Windstorm, Corrosive Gale or Whirlwind. Combine these with something like Evolution Charm and you can even use it to get rid of any non flying creature.

If you want to try and assemble the Urza lands you absolutely need to be running 4 x Expedition Map and with an average CMC that high, you probably need to assemble them. I would not bother with Nyx in a three colour deck.

Wonderful suggestions both of you! I appreciate very much the thorough suggestions
I love Blasphemous Act but I'll have to find another way to fit it in. Dragons and dragon-based decks are heavy in my group. So I still want my two anti-flying tech cards. After your suggestion, I switched out Sandwurm Convergence with the cheaper Gravity Well.
Praetor's Counsel is perfect suggestion for this deck. The other two do not fit my game plan as well, but I'd love to pull back all my wolves near end game.
Decimate My lord I had no idea this existed. Instant-add !
Super important point on the draw power. Having more options in hand will make this deck a beast! Lifecrafter's Bestiary I actually had in here intially, but after thinking about it I don't think it plays well with how I want to play the deck. Harmonize I did not include initially, but I love the idea. It's beneficial that I have cards to let me cast it with flash.
Curse of Stalked Prey I LOVE the flavour. If I wasn't hurting for space this would be an instant add-in. As is, I fear it may be too single-use and slow-building for me to consider (Compared to Craterhoof Behemoth and Beastmaster Ascension right) . Wolfir Silverheart seems to single-use as well without means to bounce him for further soulbonding
