Harvest Season Discussion
2 weeks ago
Yeah, I picked those combo' too. I just played 2 games with friends : 1st one I killed everyone with Obelisk Spider and Blowfly Infestation and 2nd one we got locked by an Atraxa deck with Stase sigh. But on 2nd one, I played Harvest Season with 5 tapped crea' so pretty fun. With Cryptolith Rite and Throne of the God-Pharaoh that's really fun !Else, our decklist are really similar, I only have the Quillspike+Devoted Druid that you don't have for combo' and that's all.

Marvell: Literally no reason - deck would probably be better with one or two. Mass Removal is really important, and there have absolutely been games I've wished I had it; I think I just don't because Gahiji makes for fast, punch-y games. I mention a couple options in the primer - I'd probably run Hallowed Burial and Retribution of the Meek if I were to run some mass removal.
Mogg Infestation is hilarious. I think I have an old one laying around from back when I had a Purphoros deck. Will have to sub it in for something 5+ CMC at some point and give it a shot.

Very well, here's my latest jank for your consideration (take your time)
Orzhov Advokist: Boosts one of your creatures and tells you ahead of time whether or not someone is planning on attacking you. This potentially lets it both replace one card from Conflict Escalation and another from Deterrence, which would free up a slot for something else. On the downside, it takes a player turn cycle to become relevant and it's more about quality than quantity (although you could use things like Tetravus, Murder Investigation and/or Hangarback Walker to alleviate this, see also about Elemental Mastery below). Another problem is that it doesn't reward people for attacking each other and it's arguably anti-synergetic with Mystic Barrier.
Harvest Season/(Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip): More powerful yet less reliable alternative to Cultivate. (Although instead of Itlimoc you could just spend hundreds of bucks on a Gaea's Cradle I guess)
(Thornscape Familiar): The only one in the cost reduction Familiar cycle which affects more than one of the colors in your commander's identity. Aside from Gahiji himself, it works for 33 out of the 99 cards in the current deck (assuming no shenanigans like Celestial Dawn or Feroz's Ban). I dunno if you cast those 33 cards frequently enough per turn to make the cost reduction worthwhile compared to land-based ramp, especially since you got some land matters cards like Mirari's Wake.
Continuing my quest of exhausting every possible card advantage option known to beast, god and man:
Elvish Harbinger: Complement or possibly even a replacement for Wood Elves. Ramps and elf Imperial Seal:s from a pretty diverse pool consisting of Rhys the Redeemed, Reclamation Sage, Wood Elves, Knight of the Reliquary, Mirror Entity, Selvala, Explorer Returned & Oracle of Mul Daya. Since it doesn't have flash, unplanned shuffling is my biggest reservation towards this one. (As an optional bonus, it can form the middle of a threefold creature tutor chain with either of the Recruiters and any elf.)
Green Sun's Zenith: Banned in modern and probably something you've already considered. Puts green critters directly onto the battlefield and is self-recurable. It can pick from a pretty diverse pool that includes (among other things) Den Protector, Oracle of Mul Day, Reclamation Sage, Tireless Tracker, Wood Elves, Knight of the Reliquary, Mirri, and Selvala.
Worldly Tutor: Creature Vampiric Tutor, might be a bit slow without an available draw source. (Congregation at Dawn) takes things further, but with the presence of other (shuffling) tutors and a lack of great draw power it seems questionable. Eladamri's Call is the Demonic Tutor equivalent, dunno if it can compete with Green Sun's.
(Evolutionary Leap): Unsure about this one, but could be nice with things that give a benefit upon death (be it naturally or trough Skullclamp with 2 or more toughness) and/or are disposable (especially cheap ETB creatures that can be recurred with Sun Titan).
(Defense of the Heart): Obviously very powerful if it goes off, but I assume that it's too conditional & vulnerable to removal to be worth it.
Magus of the Wheel: Complement to the classic wheel that's already present. I prefer the Magus over Wheel of Fate & Reforge the Soul due to not requiring you to have all the mana at once and/or because it's more predictable for something that discards your hand (although slower without haste). As a bonus, it's recurable with Sun Titan (and tutorable with either of the Recruiters).
Other misc. cards which you've probably already considered and rejected, but just in case:
(Luminarch Ascension): On one hand, Ant Queen on steroids. On the other, draws a lot of hate and/or takes at least four turns to become not-useless (assuming no helpful proliferation) which makes it more and more of a dead draw over time. (Sacred Mesa is a weird compromise.) There's also Emeria Angel/Retreat to Emeria for if you want to expand on the land subtheme, but it doesn't have the same explosive potential as the aforementioned manasinks (although Hazezon Tamar might be a decent compromise).
Elemental Mastery: Channels a quality creature (e.g. a beefed up Knight of the Reliquary or just Gahiji himself) into a quantity of tokens which better synergizes with Gahiji's ability. On the downside, since the tokens only lasts one turn you can't increase their power on the long term with e.g. Curse of Predation. The card also has the two usual problems associated with Auras in that it requires the presence of an appropriate creature to be useful and that single-target removal against said creature becomes a two-for-one deal (and this is further exasperated by the fact that you're encouraged to increase the power of the creature by e.g. putting counters on it). Also too expensive for Sun Titan. Dragon Throne of Tarkir gives somewhat similar quality-to-quantity conversion in a more resilient equipment form.
(Path of Ancestry) vs one of Temple of Abandon/Temple of Plenty/Temple of Triumph. Less reliable scry that only works with Gahiji & the changeling, but taps for all the relevant colors. Dunno how frequently this is relevant for you.
(Rith, the Awakener): Token generator alternative. I'm guessing you've rejected it because the tokens lack evasion and/or the token generation is too conditional. (But hey, at least it's a combat damage effect for Duelist's Heritage to interact with)
(Marton Stromgald): Potentially explosive token amplification but hard to keep alive.
Mass Hysteria: In case you're not getting enough haste from Slayers' Stronghold. Also works with the group slug aspect, but I dunno if it will backfire by e.g. letting powerful tap abilities come out of nowhere. (There's also Concordant Crossroads if you're not worried about it being replaced by another World Enchantment.) Samut, Voice of Dissent is another option that has quite a few other features as well, but I fear she'll come in a bit too late. Got similar feelings about (Urabrask the Hidden), who's also kinda detrimental to the group slug theme and/or will draw too much hate. ((Akroma's Memorial) is even worse in the lateness department.)
Mogg Infestation/(Settle the Wreckage)/Fell the Mighty/(Righteous Fury)/(Sunblast Angel)/(Angel of the Dire Hour): One of the Token Beatdown variants favors board wipes, but all of the listed cards have a tendency to kill your fatties and leave your opponent's weenies alive. In case you want a source of emergency non-targeted creature removal in the main deck and/or the variant, here's some additional options that can leave your own creatures alive, even if they're a bit more expensive than e.g. Wrath of God (or, in the case of Settle the Wreckage, potentially profitable for an opponent). Special mention to Mogg Infestation for still keeping the group slug going by being Beast Within on steroids & Angel of the Dire Hour for bypassing indestructible in addition to shroud, if that's relevant in your meta (although a plain (Arcane Lighthouse) might be better then).
(Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite): Saving the most prominently obvious card for last, I assume the reason you've rejected it is because it's not explosive enough to act as a 1v1 finisher, while being detrimental to the overall group slug strategy when there's more than one opponent alive.

Majestic Myriarch - could be HUGE with all the tokens;
Ulvenwald Hydra - Gets a land and will be big with all the lands out;
Zendikar Resurgent - no brainer;
Jolrael, Empress of Beasts - another option for land transformation
Imperious Perfect - More tokens and buffs
Harvest Season - Major deck thinner after a token swing
Cryptolith Rite - mana for days

Carmasem Yeah you're right! I cutted the Infect Stuff besides Flesh-Eater Imp and Glistening Oil. The Imp alone is to heavy imo and Glistening Oil could help me start my combos.I added some Ramp Cards and thought about Harvest Season, seems good in a Token Deck but prbly to "late"
I thank you both for your Tips and Suggestions :)

I wouldn't really call this a midrange deck, I'd say it's more of a ramp deck with some random counter spells scattered in. Still, if you're looking for cards that would make the deck better, I have a few suggestions. Also, please forgive me if I sound condescending. You said you're new to magic, so I might explain things in more detail than is actually necessary.
A ramp deck, again, what you have, has two main parts. It has spells that get mana more quickly, and it has huge spells to cast with your absurd amount of mana. For the ramp portion of the deck, I would recommend Spring, Hour of Promise and I suppose Weaver of Currents is fine, but Bounty of the Luxa is probably just better. Also, if you go with Hour of Promise, be sure to have a few desserts, the zombies you get will buy you time to ramp even more. Also, if end up having a bunch of creatures that can tap for mana, and I do mean a bunch, maybe Harvest Season can be good. Give it a try, could be good.
Now for the huge spells. I have a friend who made a really strange standard deck using Sandwurm Convergence. I never expected to play against that card, but honestly, I had like no way to beat it once it was in play. If you decide to play a lot of creatures, I would recommend also playing Prowling Serpopard to combat control. A three mana spell countering your 7 mana spell is just bad.
I would 100% take out every instant you have right now. The counterspells and bounce spells serve no real purpose in this deck. It's just awkward to not cast a ramp spell on turn three in the hopes that your opponent casts something good enough to counter. That's not a winning strategy. Instead, focus entirely on ramping, then make your opponent deal with your massive board, not the other way around.
Hope this helps, good luck building your deck. If I think of anything else I'll be sure to let you know.

Seems you and I may be among the few who think those spells are good in Modern. From what I've seen, Harvest Season is only popular in EDH. A buddy of mine runs Throne of the God-Pharaoh in a tron/Myr Battlesphere deck. Both there and here, it can dish out some serious damage!
