Sorry for the double post. Typed the comment on my phone so when it didnt show it right away i re-sent thinking something went wrong. As for a suggestion if you run a few less mana rocks and some either bounce or generic dual lands you could mabe fit in Austere Command or Supreme Verdict. I used thes in tandem with Angel of Flight Alabaster and Iname, Life Aspect

Boar Umbra or Giant Growth to beef up your creatures or tokens. Iname, Life Aspect to liberate Spirit creatures from the graveyard

PartyJ thanks for the answer!

I don't want to go super-competitive, but there are my wishes:- competitive enough to play against basic commander 2017 and maybe a tier higher- fun to play and play against

Currently i have a great combo with Lifespinner goes on Myojin of Life's Web, then Iname, Life Aspect to place both hand and grave back onto the field (maybe multiple time thanks to That Which Was Taken).

It's nice to have 100+ life while everyone struggling in 40-ties.

I'd like to retain the thematism but improve the effectiveness. Budget is not really an issue.

All I can say is

About time spirit tribal is more possible

The other two inames as suggestions

Iname, Life Aspect and Iname, Death Aspect

And important note on death version Mortal Combat then you can get to the $20 in the grave easily and Patriarch's Bidding for a safety net, but not the best idea since this is the only route to get it.

Haven't made the deck yet, just started toying with it first. Trying to do this all on the cheaper side, since I haven't played EDH before. Ideally I'd rather have some blue in there, but Atraxa is too expensive. I really wanted both of those cards in there, but this deck is $1 (not counting Commander card) or less cards, ideally each card under $.30 unless I already own it.

Thief of hope only works well for me in decks with high token creation. I'm hoping that Drogskol Cavalry, Iname, Life Aspect, and Iname, Death Aspect, with all the soulshift should do that for me.

With enough lifegain, Ajani's Pridemate can be REALLY powerful! Nice card! But if you ask me, I'd remove Elder Pine of Jukai and Iname, Life Aspect because you only have 4 spirits in the deck. Personally I don't like creatures that must attack each round like the Juggernaut. And once again I don't think you can have easily delirium, so Kessig Dire Swine is just an ordinary fatty. In my opinion, Blanchwood Armor and Howl of the Night Pack would be better in a mono-green deck. In fact, that is my advice: you should make one mono-white lifegain deck and one mono-green deck.

Keen Sense is cheaper than Snake Umbra. Mask of Memory would stick around longer than either (should a dude die) and you can use something like Creeping Renaissance to get all the discarded cards back (if that's a concern).

Elder Pine of Jukai could be interesting if you had more spirits or arcane spells (looks like you have 3 total so probably not a great fit). There could be some other spirits or arcane spells worth swapping in...a couple that seem kinda cool or would otherwise fit your theme: Arashi, the Sky Asunder, Carven Caryatid, Eidolon of Blossoms, Forked-Branch Garami, Haru-Onna, Iname, Life Aspect, Nourishing Shoal, Permeating Mass, Primordial Sage, Rending Vines, Strength of Cedars, Wear Away. Not trying to change up the vibe, just saying...

Other straight up draw cards to consider: Abundant Growth, Elemental Bond, Fecundity, Fa'adiyah Seer, Fruit of the First Tree, Garruk's Packleader, Glimpse of Nature, Hunter's Insight, Hunter's Prowess, Kavu Lair, Krosan Tusker (just to cycle it), Life's Legacy, Nature's Resurgence, Nissa's Revelation, Ohran Viper, Sylvan Library, Zendikar Resurgent.

Viridian Revel could be interesting given you seem to like artifact hate. And then there are all the Enchantresses, if you want to start loading up on enchantments, e.g. Verduran Enchantress. I think there are 4-5 available, which could become some serious card draw off simple cantrips like Abundant Growth.

This looks like a fun deck...might try my hand at a build if I have enough of the cards ;-)
