Let'st try this again!

FaiberJC & Goronagar maybe you should take look at this:

Varina's Undead Army March

I have some interesting tech.

FaiberJC to answer you:

I’m assuming we are on budget.

Maybe Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Expedition Map package could be nice to include for budget reasons in place of some cards that u miss.

1) I love the jank.

2) needs much more Kindred Discovery , Vanquisher's Banner, and maybe Coat of Arms.

3) I now want to sing 'Gonna Build a Wall' from Shrek: the Musical.

Yes. Shrek has a musical. And honestly it's pretty damn good. Look into it.

Kindred Discovery will mill u out - it is not a "may" ability so you will be forced to draw your whole deck (cmndr's effect is also not a "may" ability)

either take it out or add in some way to disrupt the combo and win

Hey zerowner thanks so much for the feedback. Heirloom Blade, Herald's Horn and Heroic Intervention are all good suggestions and i think i will make room for them. Kindred Discovery is blue so i'm not allowed to play that, did you mean Kindred Summons? i play Nevinyrral's Disk over Oblivion Stone simply because i haven't got a stone at the moment, though i only really use the disk in extreme situations where i'm desperate. I did initially have Lifecrafter's Bestiary in the deck but found it to be quite weak, maybe that was just a couple of bad hands for it though.

I've so far found presence of gond to be pretty good. Especially when paradox engine is around. So not only do you create an elf which boosts marwyn, who then taps for even more mana, but you increase the total number of elves for things like Elvish Archdruid. untap when you cast and repeat. 3 mana for a spell that creates a 1/1, and instantly adds mana to the board can't be bad right?

Anyways, thanks again for all the suggestions and good luck with your build. Tag me when you're all done!

Wirewood Symbiote and Scryb Ranger would both be excellent for your commander, and Lifecrafter's Bestiary can provide you with tons of draw. Regal Force is good as well, and Greater Good can provide you with fantastic filtering in response to removal. I'd also maybe go with an eldrazi (take your pick on which one) over Primal Surge, which would probably be a better card in your deck if you ran more big creatures and less total instants and sorceries. Kindred Discovery, Herald's Horn (which I'd prefer to Emerald Medallion), Heirloom Blade (especially since buffing your commanders attack just nets you 3 mana with it) and maybe Grave Sifter could all be good too. And since you're working with so much mana, I think a Darksteel Plate to protect your commander could pull a lot of weight as well; speaking of things that give indestrutctible, Heroic Intervention saves you from a board wipe ezpz. Staff of Domination is pretty similar to Umbral Mantle in its ability to let you combo off with your commander. Elvish Guidance can be good if you find you have large boards often. Also you're missing the best card ever printed for mono green commanders, Beast Within. Personally I like Oblivion Stone over Nevinyrral's Disk because disk is slow, even if it is 3 less mana total to blow up the board (not like you'll often have mana issues), but thats more of a personal preference of mine. Does Presence of Gond usually do much?

Anyway, I really like your deck, and I've been thinking about making an elf deck for a while so I think I'll probably make mine pretty similar to yours, same commander and all. Cheers!

Hi, nice wombo combo:

Liliana, Untouched By Death + Rooftop Storm + Sidisi, Undead Vizier

activiting the Liliana's ulti and casting infinte Sidisi / Tutor with rooftop storm without paying mana costs.

I'm missing some nice zombies chiefs:

Death Baron, Lord of the Accursed, Risen Executioner, Zombie Master

Dictate of Kruphix isn't a good card draw, just use some better draw engine: Military Intelligence, Kindred Discovery

AlucardZain: If I had a penny for every time someone asked me that...

IMO, Lab Man is better in a deck that either self-mills, or wins through some way of exiling their library (say, Doomsday). In this deck, I need to actually draw 100 cards to win with him, and if I do that, I will win through any one of a myriad of other win conditions...or he's simpy out-classed by Firestorm in the same slot. This is particularly true with the Kindred Discovery combo.

Being very creature-based leaves you vulnerable to board-wipes.

Try Frenetic Sliver as a fun way to potentially save your slivers during a board wipe.

Kindred Boon is expensive, but powerful. Kindred Discovery is another, better Distant Melody and Kindred Dominance is a great, one-sided board-wipe.
