I like it. I don't know the age of your son, but it seems rather user-friendly. That is one of the nice features of these colors. I would suggest more card advantage. Perhaps something like a Skullclamp , Shamanic Revelation of maybe even a Dawn of Hope .

For green, it seems to be lacking in ramp. There is no shortage of ramp in these colors, but consider Cryptolith Rite .

Beastmaster Ascension is pretty much a must for any token deck.

There are some preventative cards you could add that helps add control to your colors such as Choke , Glare of Subdual , Sandwurm Convergence , Trostani Discordant .

Oketra is nice and works here. The other Oketra would be nice too God-Eternal Oketra .

Here are some other cards you might want to consider: Aura Mutation , Mycoloth , Loyal Unicorn , Loyal Guardian , Brawn , Seedborn Muse .

(Not even Mayael the Anima can't sing an Aria to save her life anymore.)

NOTICE BEFORE QUESTION: Initially, this was meant to be a Mayael the Anima deck all around; even conforming to newer; & better standards. Then, after several thoughts over her, I wanted to make a WAY better Mayael the Anima -Deck. Atla Palani, Nest Tender was just that. Saccing Eggs to find some of the Most Powerful that Mayael can also do. But I believe that after what I get after all this, Mayael will only be an Afterthought. Questions? Well, here we go...

Q1: In terms of Range of Power; The Magic No. is 4 Power. Namely Stuff w/ Great Effects; 4+ Powered Powerhouses, & just great effects. What do you think is the best out of the ones Printed as of currently? There are so many, I can't mention them all...

Q2: Oh, almost forgot. Assuming the Sac Engines needed to make Egg Tokens that create Monsters w/ incredible power, what exactly would you want to cut & proceed? Also: SACRIFICES MUST BE MADE. (As of this update: this has 127 Cards now.)

Q3: While I've an optimal amount of Instants, I have much fewer SORCERIES. Does this deck need anymore of them, or is it just fine?

Q4 FINAL: The whole purpose of this deck is to bring an entire army to the table in ONE TURN. Since this is /Naya/AGGRO, I want to know your thoughts for how to do it through sacking Eggs & bringing Fat to life in Adult Form. Based on these terms; how would you do this?

Finally, I have to ask: Am I doing too many Help Wanted Deck Help Threads? I'm just curious; that & I couldn't remember what I was initially going to say; that, & I'm apparently doing too little to help my case of trying all I can to help my problems; & from there, for such great people like you.

Hope this helps! :D

imSandstorm Thank you for the recommendation. I didn't know about Canopy Cover , but it's something that I would be looking for. I will definitely slot that and Primeval Bounty when I find them.

Forgotten Ancient. For that one, I just couldn't find one in my country yet. Will have to search better. Loyal Guardian took it's original slot.

To be fair Loyal Guardian is actually very strong while the others range from fair to meh. Given my experience with the format their abilities only provided one pretty strong commander with the rhino and nothing ban-worthy. The unicorns ability is a very fun, fair deck but has enough fragility that its not really dominating.

JuQ on That Girl Is Poison - budget Hapatra

Witherscale Wurm taking wither damage won't trigger Hapatra, so there is not much point for him in he deck.

Are you really creating enough tokens to make Bloodflow Connoisseur , Bloodthrone Vampire and Carrion Feeder worthwhile? In my experience with myhapatra deck, the snakes are way to valuable to be sacrificed for a mere +1/+1 counter or +2/+2 until EoT on some creature with no evasion.

Fevered Convulsions , and Gnarled Effigy look terribly unefficient, for mana for a -1/-1 is way too much. I used to run Serrated Arrows and Trigon of Corruption but I ended up cutting them, maybe they could work fine in your deck as you are going strong on Proliferate. Now I'm testing Serrated Biskelion but I'm not completely sold on it, you know you never get to draw the cards you are trying out...

Decimator of the Provinces is also way too costly, even if you emerge it, and all the trouble just for a wide +2/+2 trample; a simple Overrun would give you a better bang for your mana. Predatory Rampage will wipe most of your oponent's creatures and Revenge of the Hunted is a one player board wipe. I also find Loyal Guardian to be an underrated card to spread counters on your creatures.
Canker Abomination will only get you a snake no matter how many counters it gets, so in the best case scenario it would be a 5/5 with one snake for four mana, its not really worth the deck slot. There are many creatures in the Amonkhet block that will do just that but better.

on the evasion department I would definetly cut Tawnos's Wand , Hot Soup has a bit of a drawback, but Hapatra only has toughness 2, so it won't be a big difference anyway and the card is really funny. Trailblazer's Boots is a bit more expensive, but I would still consider it a budget card.

These kind of decks are supper weak against board wipes, so I'd encourage you to include Golgari Charm or Wrap in Vigor .The best card for that task would be Heroic Intervention but it's getting more and more expensive every day.

If you want to check my Hapatra deck, it's this one Hapatra's death hosts

JuQ on Deathtouch Tribal

Archetype of Finality feels redundant when most of your deck are small creatures with death touch.
Overrun -like effects would definitely be killer with so many deathtouchers (you only need to asign 1 dmage to defender and trample the rest).

Several creatures check for +1/+1 counter but you don´t have any way to easily spread them on your creatures (mainly vraska, but the have to deal damage first). Durable Handicraft , Song of Freyalise , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Forgotten Ancient , Loyal Guardian , Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest (to name a few so you can choose from).
Now that you have a consistent way to spread the counters, proliferating would be the next natural step, specially so you can get some more uses out of Vraska: Evolution Sage is amazing card for your periodic proliferation.

I would abandon the death trigger theme to make space in the deck for cards, that would require a whole different deck to workout.
