No clue what you guys are talking about lol, but this is great! Maybe Somberwald Sage or Gyre Sage to give Omnath +3/+3 each turn?

I think Experiment Kraj would definitely be a good idea now that I've thought about it. Would make a lot of the combos just work better and consolidate everything. Especially because I've gotten it to a point where actually putting counters on creatures is difficult. Viridian Joiner is good, but being able to get him bigger as a secon Gyre Sage would make a lot of things much easier

Not sure about Momir Vig. I don't want to make it so consistent that it does the same thing every time. The two times I've played it I went infinite and won both times with Walking Ballista and I'm trying to find different win cons and ways to go off without tutors. If that makes sense

Gyre Sage and Basilisk Collar also seem like great cards you could be running. Aura Shards has gotten pretty cheap nowadays too, and it seems like an excellent way to control the board with Marath.

PTsmitty, sadly, I can't remember now! Although I do remember him playing Goblin Fodder and sacking one of his Goblins to Goblin Grenade my Garruk.

I think my play slowed after that, putting only a Forced Adaptation on my Gyre Sage the turn after.

The_Lost_Primarch on My Best Turn-Two Play

Yesterday I picked up what may be my most important mana-ramp pieces for my deck: Utopia Sprawl and Arbor Elf.

First game I played with my friend with the new pieces went like this.

T1: Forest, Arbor Elf

T2: Forest, cast Utopia Sprawl on untapped forest. Tap enchanted forest for 2 floating mana, untap using Arbor Elf, tap again for a total of 4 floating mana. Cast Garruk Wildspeaker and use his +1 loyalty ability to untap the enchanted forest (which I tap again for 2 floating mana) and the other forest. I cast Gyre Sage and end my turn.

I already had a Garruk Wildspeaker, Arbor Elf, and a Gyre Sage on turn 2

My opponent's reaction was "Wow, that's scary."

Ended up winning against his Modern Mono-Red Goblins deck

SaltySpecula: and MoGoose831: Thanks for both of your inputs! I don't really purchase cards so budget is definitely not an issue. I mostly play it through Xmage.As for the fetch lands, I mostly play it for the speed and ability to fetch the duals. However, I am considering changing some of them to different non-basics. One I need to add is Gaea's Cradle, and potentially one or both Strip Mine and Wasteland because Pendrell gets on my nerves. I also never really like playing basics unless I need to when I'm playing on Xmage or proxy decks with my group of friends.

As for my choice in commander, I like using Marath for his utility in this deck, rather than playing combo like he usually is. I like the unpredictability of the deck, as I rarely play the same game with it (no creature tutors!).

SaltySpecula: I love your suggestions! I think Strionic Resonator and Panharmonicon are really good! Especially the latter. As for Amonkhet, I am very excited to add a couple of those cards to this deck, especially today's Samut, Voice of Dissent. Others I'm excited about is the one you mentioned, Champion of Rhonas and Combat Celebrant.

As for the Blasphemous Act, I think something to the effect of Anger of the Gods or Slagstorm would be a better fit so that my creatures can survive.

I think Warstorm Surge is way overpriced, and would be lower in the priority to cast list versus something like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight.

Regarding lifegain stuff, I like the flavor of it, but I don't have enough cards for Patron and Archangel's Light to be relevant. Though I am looking for some good graveard recursion, I think Sword of Light and Shadow would do the trick. Especially for Gyre Sage or Mikaeus, the Lunarch. Those get targeted so fast.

I suggest dropping Llanowar Elves for Gyre Sage and maybe add in some Hardened Scales? +1 from me!

Looks pretty sweet dude! With all those big blue beasties I would add a Gyre Sage!
