Proposition to move Marath, Will of the Wild to competitive? I hate to toot my own horn but this list is really consistent. Also, check out the deck statistics section, which is why I say to move marath to competitive

I'm definitely no Deck Lord, but this looks fun, so why not?

Favorite Formats: Legacy, Modern and Commander. I started with Legacy, but no one plays it where I live anymore, and I've been having fun with Modern. I'm extremely new at Commander, but it's been a good time so far!

Favorite Deck: Right now it's my Solaria deck. The first deck I ever built was a Splicer deck meant to create a lot of Golems, and this deck succeeds where that one failed. It creates lots of tokens, places lots of counters, digs fast and responds well, probably my best deck yet.

Favorite Commander: Marath, Will of the Wild. I like making tokens and adding +1/+1 counters. Marath does both very well. He also pulls his weight as spot removal, and the more you use him, the better he gets.

Favorite Color: Green, in real life and in Magic. i love plopping big creatures, or building up my creatures until they can match big creatures. There's no better way to win a game of Magic than by having your army of creatures trample over theirs. Next is white, then red, then blue, then black. I don't hate black, I just don't use it much. My newest Commander deck has a ton of black in it, but I haven't had the chance to play it yet.

Favorite Guild: Selesnya. Given my earlier answers, I'm sure that's no surprise. Simic would be my second pick.

Favorite Shard: Naya. Although I've had a ton of fun building my Grixis Marchesa Commander deck.

Favorite Wedge: Never played with one, but Temur resonates the most with me on paper.

Card that best represents you: Titan Forge. An army of 9/9 Golems? Yes please! This was the first card I ever "broke" putting out one of its tokens for 3 mana a turn on both my opponent's and my turn, and it felt gooood. Not a competitive card at all, but super fun to play, and strong if built around correctly (probably).

Hobbies Outside of Magic: I love reading Manga, Manwha, Manhua, Light Novels, Web Comics, you name it. So much good content, so little time.

Tell us about your life outside of TappedOut: Not much to tell. I work at a grocery store, spend most of my time either reading or with family, and occasionally find my way to the LGS.

How did you come up with your username? - The first forum I ever joined was about baseball, so I used my nickname (my real name is Isaac) and added on the number of my favorite player, Tony Gwynn. Now whenever I join somewhere online, I always try to use this username.

What first appealed to you about Magic? - Deck building. I love the creative aspect, the puzzle solving aspect, and the sense of accomplishment you get when a deck you designed works the way you wanted it to. Even when I take a break from playing Magic, I'm always thinking of brews.

Why is Magic important to you now? - It's one of the few things that gets me out and about, and it's still fun after all these years!

What are your thoughts on the current metagame (any format)? - Modern looks ripe for a shakeup. There's a lot of good decks, hopefully Thassa's Oracle won't homogenize it like it has with cEDH.

Are there any cards or strategies you feel overcentralize the metagame? - Oops, jumped ahead and answered already. But yeah, not currently, but worried about Thassa's Oracle.

How do you deal with a dominant new deck, card, and/or player in your pod? - Good question, hasn't come up for me yet.

What is your approach to deckbuilding? - I start with a few cards that work well together, and try to figure out how best to exploit them. As the deck takes shape, I look to either boost strengths, or shore up weaknesses. There's always Opportunity Cost, so I keep looking for cards that are flexible enough to fulfill multiple functions in the deck, especially ones that still work without the card(s) they were specifically put in to help. This process is very iterative, and my deck will go through many forms before it's "done" ( it never really is).

Share with us some of your favorite decks by others on TappedOut you feel are underappreciated/underrated. - Atraxa, Planeswalkers' Voice Really cool build with lots of counters! Just my style.

Are there any future releases you’re looking forward to? Why or why not? - Lots of cool Commander products this year, it's perfect timing as I'm trying to get into the format this year.

I recently rebuilt my Marath, Will of the Wild deck and with so many different ways Marath can be utilized, every game can feel like a different way to play and win.

No to Emmara Tandris . I've built that one befor. It's not very good.

There's a player with a Marath, Will of the Wild token deck in my group. He tends to go infinite all the time. But if that's your thing go for it.

I'm sure what ever you do with Yarok, the Desecrated will be very good, but no white.

I cant say anything about Tana, the Bloodsower and Tymna the Weaver , because I've never seen the 2 together let alone it being a token deck.

And of course I'm all in on Iroas, God of Victory

Want something off-beat? How about Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer ?

Want a brew where your long-sought-after Doubling Season really works double duty? How about Marath, Will of the Wild ?

Wanna really have a game where you're spinning the wheel? Atla Palani, Nest Tender . Like a token Cascade!

Wanna be the unconventional token strat that goes tall instead of wide? Take a look at Feldon of the Third Path !

Krenko, Mob Boss can get out of hand, I'm sure.

You could sac your way to the win or just go wide with Prossh, Skyraider of Kher !

Need something totally typical? Might I suggest Rhys the Redeemed ?

How about Rith, the Awakener devotion tokens. I hear White has some good stuff for that?

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant and Izoni, Thousand-Eyed look like they've got a good thing going...

Wanna get creative? Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun is a unique choice, but how much support does he have? Quasiduplicate is a good start.

Teysa Karlov is sitting in the middle of the Orzhov web of power. Know what that means? Lots of tokens and a lot more death.

Need to come out of nowhere with an enormous beat stick? Ulasht, the Hate Seed is your beat stick!!

Valduk, Keeper of the Flame is another beefy boi who benefits from auras and equipments a lot... as do Tana, the Bloodsower and Siona, Captain of the Pyleas ... Here's something else entirely. Voltron tokens?

Hope that was enough options.

TefflonDice on Marath I need help naming this deck

With all of the choices Marath, Will of the Wild provides; "Marath, because sharing is caring"

I can see where you're going with this deck and I like it! (albeit a bit frenetic)

A few suggestions I think have good synergy with your Commander Parallel Lives , Death's Presence , Increasing Savagery and Curse of Predation .
Barring Parallel Lives, they're all inexpensive too!

Just a side note you're probably already aware of Paradox Engine has to go :(
