Hua Tuo, Honored Physician Discussion

Looks like you got most of the major players minus these-
Other good stuff
You can also search up planeswalkers now as well since they are legendary. That opens up a whole other aspect of deck building depending on what you want to do. Hope this gives you some more ideas to brew with!

Heyo! So question, whats your impression on Hua Tuo, Honored Physician as a means of creature recurrsion for this deck? It puts them right back on top of the library for Mayael to have access to.

Thanks @VietMoneys, Call of the Wild can create a decent lock down with Hua Tuo, Honored Physician and also gets random value when you can flash in a big creature after scrying, soothsaying or having your top card revealed. The best creatures are usually Venser, Endbringer, Scourge of Fleets, Corsair of Kruphix, Murkfiend Liege and Frost Titan.
The biggest issue I have is finding a solid and clear win condition, usually people concede all at the same time or I ult Garruk. I'll take a look at your deck!

Thanks for the comments and suggestions, guys.
I had Khalni Hydra and Primalcrux in the deck until fairly recently, but they fell victim to my desire to quicken the speed of the deck. I still like them, and devotion is still one of my favorite mechanics, but they fell by the wayside.
Even though Explore replaces itself, it does require that I have an extra land in my hand which, although likely in many cases can be a little situational. If it didn't replace itself, I wouldn't even consider it, but it's a maybe. I much prefer Exploration, but I don't currently have a copy. It is on my want list though.
bendjohnson, I don't think Regrowth does enough to be worth the card slot. I much prefer something like Eternal Witness, which is tutorable and gives me a chump, or Hua Tuo, Honored Physician, which is reusable and tutorable.
Anyway, thanks for the suggestions.

Sounds good! I have a few suggestions... this is always the hard part of deck building xD
Let's first go through and look at things that are not pertaining to your two win conditions, (Prossh or devour creatures)
We could take out Charnelhoard Wurm because it really doesn't help you out that much. All the creatures you sacrifice now (as opposed to the original deck list) are going to be tokens so you really don't need to much recursion. If a creature dies, just move along! Same thing with Hua Tuo, Honored Physician, Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper (as far as the whole "you aren't sacrificing non tokens" thing)
maybe take out Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, I just feel like you can do much much better with a token creation engine. The sacrifice thing kinda turns me off to it.
Hellkite Hatchling is a bit underwhelming for a devour creature.
Ophiomancer is a very fun card but is just slowing you down.
Shattergang Brothers is just not quite good imo. You aren't going to sacrifice anything else but a creature except on very rare occasion.
Quagmire Druid is not bad, but is a slot taken up in your deck. Keep it close by just in case you need more enchantment removal.
Smothering Abomination is good in a vacuum but I feel like if you get it out.. that you'll find its hard to have things to sacrifice at the beginning of your upkeep as you fuel devour and prossh.
Foster I think is going to skip over some of your token producer cards.. and we don't want that happening xD
Vile Requiem is really really slow removal.
Hunter's Prowess because I think you are going to draw WAAAAAY too many cards off of that and not be able to hold on to them.

Thanks DraftVader, I quite like Hua Tuo, Honored Physician for his effect to just bring back some of the strong creatures, such as Avenger of Zendikar, and to just bring back some other things such as the Elvish Lyrist for more removal. I do like the cards that you suggested, however I guess Hua Tuo, Honored Physician just suits my play style.

Unless you have a special reason for wanting Hua Tuo, Honored Physician as your commander I'd recommend changing to something else. Something like Polukranos, World Eater/Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip/Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter would offer you more value.
