JaysomeDecks Holy shit now I see the light. Thanks my man, I'll put those 18$ into Deranged Hermit and Chord of Calling when I get the budget. Also I'll consider more ramp and less lands. I've gotten games where I end up getting 5 lands in my hand and no way to get out of it

PartyJ I forgot about Gyre Sage, it was actually core, but I don't have her yet so I had a mental fart and forgot. Blighted Agent is a card I wanted to try because I really like Infect, so i'll consider it for future builds

Thanks a lot.

After looking at your list I came up with these suggestons:

If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help out.

I typed fathom mage but I meant Gyre Sage my b. Or i guess any creature that taps for 2. Tap for 2, untap for 1. Tap to go to 3. Net a mana each time.

Give / Take is a really good card for this kind of deck. Also I'd consider Gyre Sage.

Just looking at your deck... and if you want a really good suggestion for it i suggest the new Reyhan, Last of the Abzan from the Breed Lethality Commander 2016 deck to hoard or dump any +1/+1 counters from creatures who die or are sacrificed. Cathars Crusade with Ghave and this would be easy to generate infinite counters.

Also...Gyre Sage is always a great place to dump those +1/+1 counters for ever-increasing Green Mana. With your Seedborn Muse in play this gets nastier and nastier.

HaunterHunter: Thanks for the feedback!

Plaxcaster Frogling will definitely be making his way into the deck. One of my current fears is losing a utility creature or a heavy-hitter to spot-removal. Won't save me from board wipes, but that's why I have Cauldron of Souls.

Gyre Sage isn't too important for a four-color deck since she would mostly end up being a source of colorless mana. That being said, I'll look at what changes I make and see if I can find a spot for her; dorks are always nice!

How I managed to miss Bloodspore Thrinax I'll never know. I need to go back and do a Devour/Graft search on Gathered to see what slipped through my fingers.

I don't describe the deck as "Proliferate" so much as "Look at all my counters." Granted, Atraxa does have a Proliferate trigger, but it's secondary to most of my other goals for the deck. That being said, I am considering Fuel for the Cause to replace Disallow. The extra mana might be painful though, and I like being able to counter activated abilities, so it's something I'll have to mull over.

Edric, Spymaster of Trest will definitely make his way in, especially since he lets me play a little more politically (no pun intended). If I can find room for it, I might also add Bident of Thassa to force my opponents to throw themselves at, for instance, an extremely pumped Kalonian Hydra.

Novijen, Heart of Progress looks pretty dank, but I think Zameck Guildmage fills that niche for me. Granted, creature destruction is easier than land destruction, but I can't see him drawing too much hate as it is.

Command Tower will be going in for one of my more expensive non-basics, Rogue's Passage will find a way in somehow and Reliquary Tower... well, I'm gonna have to playtest a bit more to see if my card draw necessitates an unlimited hand size.

Thanks again for the feedback!

I have to main things I think this list could improve on.

The first thing is the lack of ramp and the second thing is the lack of a seriously good early game. And i think there are some cards that can solve one of these problems and some cards that can even solve both. Gyre Sage ramps a lot in a deck relying on heavy-hitters and can sometimes even get in itself and Shaman of Forgotten Ways pushes out your 7-drops on turn 4 while providing a one-card-lategame-kill.

Cards like Managorger Hydra and Primordial Hydra can come out on turn 3 and are serious threats just a short time later. Anafenza, the Foremost hates on some of your opponents while also riding in along the assault. Vinelasher Kudzu can even hit the battlefield on turn 2. In addition to these cards I would just throw in Tainted Strike, Rubblehulk, Temur Battle Rage and Grafted Exoskeleton to end games quicker.

These would be my suggestions to start to make the deck more of a real threat to the other players before they really can start to deploy their gameplan. :) I hope they are of some use to you. :)

Plaxcaster Frogling? shroud for two mana?

Gyre Sage? for manas

Bloodspore Thrinax for the same thing as master biomancer

Fuel for the Cause, Steady Progress, Contagion Engine, Contagion Clasp, Viral Drake, Spread the Sickness, Grim Affliction. These are all proliferate cards, some are draw power, some removal, a counterspell and one infect. Proliferation is usually good in a proliferation deck. xD

Edric, Spymaster of Trest or Bident of Thassa over Bred for the Hunt all creatures versus only +1/+1 creatures.

Novijen, Heart of Progress gives free counters to creatures that came in this turn

Rogue's Passage, Reliquary Tower, and Command Tower are a EDH Staple
