In your maybeboard I like:

Giltspire Avenger Exalted and can deter attackers, but 3 colors and $1+ makes sense to be a cut.

I would make room for Battlegrace Angel, has exalted and gives your Exalted Attacker lifelink. $0.56!

Cathedral of War was the land I was thinking about Friday, but it's $1.50! Can't include.

Sovereigns of Lost Alara is very powerful, tutors the exact aura you need for any situation, and probably makes them unblockable or lifelink in the process. With every strike it becomes lethal. $5 hard to account for but might be a way.

Rhox Charger is exalted and he has built in Trample, 3/3 Exalted for CMC4 isn't too bad for $0.25.

Stoic Angel would be an auto-include for me, especially with all of your guys making creatures come into play tapped. Swing with your Vigilance (Flying) Angel alone, and avoid any type of counter-strike from opponents. No going to find a better card for $0.50.

Grunn, the Lonely King is another option, he's CMC6 for 5/5 no Trample, but when he attacks, Stack his triggered ability, and then layer on all the Exalted, after the exalted get added, he doubles himself. If you have the kicker 3 a 10/10 for 9 is still ok. Needs a Rancor but he's pretty reasonable, especially with all the built in evasion effects.

Suprised you don't have Knotvine Paladin, he gets +1 from the Exalted ability, and stacks a second +1 for each "untapped" creature, which they all are, so doubles the Exalted when he attacks, another good finisher like Grunn, the Lonely King when evasion is available.

Cold-Eyed Selkie can draw some cards, since your not using blue much you don't have as much draw, since he's still works. Also if you can Exalted and Islandwalk someone, can repopulate your hand.

Swords to Plowshares is the best removal in Budget for $1.

Open the Armory is another Swiftfoot Boots, very important.

Farseek is good, can pull that Island for you.

Sigil of Valor is the exalted equipment because it doubles the Exalted effects!.

Behemoth Sledge is another (slightly worse) Loxodon Warhammer.

Simic Signet/Azorius Signet might be good for getting the as well.

Sigil of the Nayan Gods not bad, because if it useless, it has Cycling.

I'll continue further review later, off the top of my head,

Reciprocate generally bad, once it's hit your life it's too late, someone (situational) it will be good, but most creatures you NEED to remove aren't attacking, and if they are, the specifically have to attack you, and you have to choose to let them hit your life. Condemn is better because it can attack anyone, and doesn't have to connect to your life specifically.

Skarrg Goliath is too high CMC to be useful, and his bloodlust is also too high CMC.

More to come later, I used to have a Daxos of Meletis deck, so I have some ideas, but I utilized the quite a bit more. Fun Selesnya build. +1.

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet, but the site has both Grunn, the Lonely King and Gruun, the Lonely King listed. The fourth letter should be N, not U.

Pretty fun deck one card i think will be very easy to get in this deck is Vine Mare. personnaly i would cut the Grunn, the Lonely King as you don't have trample givers. In general i would try to be faster (lower mana cost cards) because this deck can easily play fast without loosing power. Get rid of the multani's and the grow from ashes the Marwyn, the Nurturer and add stuff like your side-board Gigantosaurus and Thorn Lieutenant. Get your land draw from other possibly big creatures like Merfolk Branchwalker and Jadelight Ranger. You might also wanne consider running 24 lands and maybe even run something like Colossal Majesty as this is really reliable card draw in this deck.

Nice :)

I would put Vine Mare in the sideboard, together with Lightning Mare and exclude Spit Flame and Fight with Fire. As for your instants, I would exchange the Shock cards for Lightning Strike and put the others in the sideboard as well. Other creatures to consider would be Grunn, the Lonely King, Skizzik, Untamed Kavu, or Verix Bladewing. What would work well would then be the enchantments Sarkhan's Unsealing and Colossal Majesty. Maybe not all the creature cards are preferable in your deck but it was just some examples :) Imo more creatures, since that's the best thing with green! I'm no expert though so take it with a pinch of salt

This looks pretty awesome. I love superion here. I'll definitely take some inspiration for my own goreclaw deck. Maybe take a look at it? Goreclaw, Banneret of the Wildlife. How about you try Adventurous Impulse instead of gift of the gargantuan. Also, how about Territorial Allosaurus abd Grunn, the Lonely King?

I hope this is what you meant by "message":) This is my deck: My G/R Casual You replied to my question about playing modern. I was wondering if you could help me a bit with my deck. A few cards are gone temporarily in exchange for some recent draft cards i wanted to play with, but this is my deck. This is my first and only deck, so there is no particular theme. If you could help me, that would be great Ps I was consideting taking Grunn, the Lonely King out to replace with more Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar's. Thanks, Matt

Nice bro! Especially the great synergy with Goreclaw and Grunn, the Lonely King!

ANemoAcids on Wizardy draw with some infinite combos

Let's get you some wincons, and fix that landbase.

First: Landbase. Basic stuff, manarocks, and better land cards, and a touch of fetchlands to get us rocking and rolling. Then, guess what, you're playing green. Congrats, you get the luxury of a vast array of tasty morsels called ramp spells, so we'll take advantage of that.

-3x Island, +Simic Growth Chamber, +Yavimaya Coast, +Bant Panorama

-2 Forest, +Myriad Landscape, +Command Tower

-Beneath the Sands + Traverse the Outlands (great way to filter land out of the deck if you get a big hand size power/toughness creature)

-Zndrsplt's Judgment +Thran Dynamo

-Blink of an Eye + Gilded Lotus

-Evacuation +Simic Signet

-Displace +Cultivate

-Mystic Confluence, + Kodama's Reach

-Time of Ice, + Nissa's Pilgrimage

-Entrancing Melody + Explosive Vegetation

Next, let's look at capitalizing on your commander's strengths: Card draw. We'll add in card draw, and some hand size manipulation to help manage it, along with some ways to make use of all that mana you gain and cards you draw.

-Watertrap Weaver, + Minds Aglow

-Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter + Mind Spring

-Academy Journeymage + Braingeyser

-Academy Elite + Pull from Tomorrow

-True-Name Nemesis + Venser's Journal

-Genesis Hydra + Thought Vessel

- Storm Sculptor + Tishana, Voice of Thunder

-Riddleform +Spellbook

-Divination +Harmonize

-Fleet Swallower +Awakening

Now for some wincons:

-Devastation Tide +Goblin Cannon (with your upcoming infinite mana/card draw combos, draw into this, then ping everyone for infinite damage and win, the ability stacks as many times as you pay the mana for it, before sacrificing itself).

-Saheeli's Artistry +Empyrial Plate (slap that on your commander, give it flying with caller of gales, free commander damage kill)

-Grunn, the Lonely King, + Laboratory Maniac

-Index + Time Warp

-Broken Bond, + Beacon of Tomorrows

-Opt +Psychosis Crawler

-Jace's Ingenuity +Sturmgeist

-Spelltwine. - River's Rebuke

+Isochron Scepter, +Dramatic Reversal (infinite mana combo with some mana rocks)

-Fumble +Illusionist's Bracers

-Ghostly Flicker +Aphetto Alchemist (equip bracers to alphetto, tap to untap it and target manarock or kydele for aother infinite mana combo, once you have infinite combos going, you can take multiple turns, draw out your whole deck with psychosis or lab maniac or tishana, or empyrial plate, etc)

Other infinite combos you can look for are Sword of the Paruns or Umbral Mantle equipped to kydele if she's drawn enough cards. The possibilities are vast, just a matter of finding yourself a bit of room for those cards, which shouldn't be too hard. However I'm also aware of budgets, I know I've suggested a LOT of changes, many that you might need to purchase, and while the individual cards aren't too pricey, collectively it's a lot once you look at all the changes. But if you're personally looking to take your deck to the next level, I'll add some more blingy suggestions at the end of this comment.

Last couple of swaps to make:

-Overwhelming Denial +Counterspell (cheaper, better counterspell)

-AEtherspouts +Swan Song

The bling: Staff of Domination (more kydele comboing)

Patron Wizard

Seedborn Muse

Minamo, School at Water's Edge

Boseiju, Who Shelters All

Cyclonic Rift

Palinchron

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger

Tooth and Nail

other cards to consider would be a touch more cantrips and counterspells? Depends on local meta, how often you need to stop people from preventing your comboing off: Pact of Negation Muddle the Mixtures Brainstorm Mystical Tutor
