Llanowar Tribe Discussion

On to the creatures. Most things look pretty good. I actually really like the inclusion of Tendershoot Dryad and Verdant Force as a sneaky alternate win-con. Some things I don't think should really be included are your 0 drop artifact creatures. I don't see them doing much. I also don't really like the inclusion of Lovestruck Beast as he doesn't really fit theme and he can be pretty fragile when it comes to being able to attack. Satyr Wayfinder also could be replaced since you don't have much graveyard interaction. I could also throw out Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma here since she doesn't reduce most of your hydras, but I think her attack bonus is enough to warrant her inclusion.
I think you've got your bases covered in terms of what effects you want to have in here so I think if you're adding cards it'd be good to look for redundancy. If you've got Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in here you should probably run Voyaging Satyr. Llanowar Tribe works well with your Leyline of Abundance. Speaking of which, one or two mana dorks would probably be prudent. You could focus on more elves and do something like Priest of Titania or Elvish Archdruid or you could just do other dorks like Whisperer of the Wilds or Druid of the Cowl. Some more card draw creatures could be good like Soul of the Harvest. One card that doesn't really have anything like it in here is Temur Sabertooth. You've got a number of good creature ETB effects that you can repeat with the Sabertooth. Also, I think it would be good tech for resetting an X cost hydra that you played early in the game and making bigger late in the game once you land a big mana producer like Karametra's Acolyte. Some other creatures w/ good ETBs on them that you could consider are Acidic Slime, terastadon, Regal Force, Fierce Empath, Avenger of Zendikar, and Bane of Progress. Oh yeah. You don't have Genesis Hydra in here. It should be in here. Also, I really like your idea to get Seedborn Muse and Yeva, Nature's Herald in here. They are great.

Some potential cards. Most of these might be side-grades or out of budget but are worth noting in the Maybeboard. I have a few of these:
Creatures are obviously optimal, what with elf anthems and counters and stuff. I would try to squeeze in the first three if you can. The tempo of getting your commander down on turn 2 is amazing.
Fyndhorn Elves , Priest of Titania , Boreal Druid , Farhaven Elf , Leyline of Abundance , Castle Garenbrig , Llanowar Tribe , Overgrowth , Reap and Sow , Kodama's Reach , Explosive Vegetation , Nature's Lore , Ranger's Path , Skyshroud Claim , Grow from the Ashes , Emerald Medallion , Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, Harrow , Circuitous Route
Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Mirror Shield , Zendikar Resurgent , Primal Rage , Heroic Intervention , Return to Nature , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Beastmaster Ascension , Loxodon Warhammer , Colossal Majesty , Rancor , Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Blossoming Defense , Withstand Death , Titanic Brawl , Ancient Animus , Momentous Fall , Nature's Claim , Once and Future , Regrowth , Wildest Dreams , Road of Return , Creeping Corrosion , Season of Growth , Blanchwood Armor , Sandwurm Convergence , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Vivien Reid , Vivien of the Arkbow , Ghost Quarter ,
Aspect of Mongoose is nice but prevents untapping shenanigans with your commander.
Some obvious out-of-budget stuff here and some lower-powered stuff too but I'll suggest them for posterity.
Llanowar Reborn , Karn's Bastion , Forge of Heroes , The Great Henge , Incubation Druid , Loyal Guardian , Tuskguard Captain , Pollenbright Druid , Solidarity of Heroes , Biogenic Upgrade , Durable Handicraft , Planewide Celebration , Courage in Crisis , Verdant Confluence , Bow of Nylea , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Hydra's Growth , Path of Discovery , Retreat to Kazandu , Forced Adaptation , Evolutionary Escalation , New Horizons , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Vivien, Arkbow Ranger , Kalonian Hydra , Arbor Armament , Stony Strength , Savage Summoning , Hunger of the Howlpack , Soul's Might , The Crowd Goes Wild , Armory of Iroas , Weapon Rack , Predatory Hunger , Primeval Bounty

Hey there, fellow Kadena-player here. =)
I've got some suggestions you might like:
- First off, I would highly recommend doing whatever you can do upgrade your land base first. Take out all the bouncelands , guildgates and fake gates , and replace them with basically anything that does not ETB tapped. even basics would be better most of the time.
- As for ramp, I decided to start by testing a bunch of rocks that add . Things like Gilded Lotus , Basalt Monolith and Llanowar Tribe . I don't know if you're into that, so alternatively there's the standard sets of Lockets, Signets, Cluestones, etc.
- Ugin, the Ineffable + Obscuring AEther is another way to get "free" morphs.
- Along those same lines, there's also Dark Petition .
- Zoetic Cavern is a land that can be morphed, enabling some sneaky tricks during attacking or blocking.
- Ezuri, Claw of Progress is also a neat trick to include if you're going the aggro route, since he'll buff all your colorless morphed creatures.
Those are all just quick suggestions, off the top of my head. If you want some more inspiration, feel free to check out my deck (The Wolverine Who Laughs (Kadena/Morph EDH)) or 's deck (It's Always Willbender), which I like because it's a nice-looking control-oriented version of Kadena.

Here's some quick suggestions you might like: Obscuring AEther , Llanowar Tribe , Gilded Lotus , Circle of Elders and Basalt Monolith can all be used for ramp. The first one gives an actual discount, the rest add mana, which allows you to pump out your morph guys faster.
Finally, I thought including Ezuri, Claw of Progress would be a cool idea, because all Morph creatures are 2/2s, so they'll trigger Ezuri every time. I haven't drawn/played it during a game yet though, so I'd be interested in your thoughts on that one.
Anyway, hopefully you like some of those ideas. Have fun Kadena-ing!

Llanowar Tribe is my favorite mana dork, and deserves a spot on the list.
