Mossbridge Troll Discussion

@TheRedGoat Thanks for your suggestions and sorry for my bad englado.
The deck is built to draw a ton of cards and it pretty much always does. The only thing that can get in our way is, when we keep a starting hand without something for card draw, we don't draw anything similar and our creatures (which were to kill Grothama) will be removed. In this case a cheap early card draw spell like Life's Legacy or Hunter's Insight could be really useful. (When i built the deck, i was also considering those two but simply forgot to put them to the Maybeboard.
The Great Aurora - I've never seen this card before and I'm not quite sure if we need more lands on the battlefield, when we can already cast a 9 mana spell. The card draw is pretty sweet tho combined with Psychosis Crawler. (And you are right, the deck makes it easy to have a handsize of 20+ cards.)
Death's Presence - Could be pretty neat, but I'm not sure if I would cut antyhing for it.
I'd never suggest to play Grothama, All-Devouring just to have her on the board. Only play her, if you can make use of her ability in that turn or can protect her until your next turn.
Verdant Sun's Avatar - Personally I like the card, but I never felt needing it.
I can only recommend Grothama, All-Devouring if you like card draw and smashing face with big hitters. She definitely has a unique ability which you can't find on any other card in magic. Beside Barktooth Warbeard, Grothama is my favorite EDH deck.

0/10: clear theme, no jank : )
Some semi-budget suggestions:
Camaraderie could be sick card draw.
Emrakul's Evangel could upgrade 1/1 tokens.
Phyrexian Rebirth consolidates power and is good to populate, but leaves you vulnerable to a single kill spell.
Skittering Invasion might be good in some situations, if you can copy the tokens and use them as mana receptacles.

Snooktf2 Thanks for the advice, I'm gonna try and fit in some of those draw suggestions since that wold definitely help to speed things up, but as for Mossbridge Troll, my plan is to use his ability multiple times, since I can tap any number of creatures to get their power to total up to 10. Cause there are so many big creatures in the deck, realistically speaking, I could get up to tapping 3-4 creatures for +40/+40, or even 5-6 for +60/+60. If you also know any good protection in green let me know, cause I'm not sure if I have enough in there or if I should add more.

I'd drop Mossbridge Troll since you only have 2 creatures with 10+ power and not many ways for +1/+1 counters.
You have plenty of mana ramp, so I would personally throw in a Thicket Elemental with kicker to cheat another creature to the battlefield.
I also think a must for this deck is Tooth and Nail , ESPECIALLY since you already have a Concordant Crossroads . If for whatever reason you don't have your Crossroads out you can just TNN Surrak, the Hunt Caller + anything else to have it attack that turn.

I would caution against making anything so close to a new commander set coming out. With that out of the way here are my thoughts.
In His Belly is a deck I built recently that seems to be rather explosive. It doesn't do much early game but set up a large creature to eat Grothama, All-Devouring like Mossbridge Troll and you draw a quarter of your deck. Lay down Myojin of Life's Web and then half your hand and you should win there. If not that 10/8 is ready to come back and with a slight buff will 2 shot players out of the game.
Divine Decree I'm suggesting this one simply because it is my favorite deck and I designed it to work slowly while protecting itself. It doesn't really matter what my opponents bring to the field because Her Highness, Queen Marchesa, is bringing an answer. The variety of pillows in this deck seems to be able to hold off most strategies plus lifegain makes it really hard on the decks that do get around the pillows. Usually wins by a combo or by Revel in Riches but Manabarbs and Painful Quandary and friends sure do put a hurt on everyone. I get a lot of joy out of playing this deck because I don't have to answer every threat, "you played Phage the Untouchable?, that's cool. can you pay 8 mana to attack me?" is a scenario that comes up often.
Mistress of Poisons is likely the most competitive deck I've built which is why I stopped playing it. With some more tutors you could consistently combo off rather early. I had several games where I won turn 4. If anyone stops the combos they better hope they don't rely on creatures, even the indestructible ones will wither away rather quickly.

PunkJkr3 It isn't a bad idea but so far what happens is I get Mossbridge Troll or something else large, fight my commander, draw a bunch, then play Myojin of Life's Web, then get every creature in hand for free which usually wins the game next turn. I did kill one person with commander damage in a game but Grothama has really just been a ridiculous draw spell for the most part. Also the only ways to give Grothama double strike in mono green I can think of are equipment which I already have a lot of. Still worth thinking about, thanks.
And thank you to everyone that has upvoted and commented.

I was trying to figure out if it was possible to build up a funny list with this fat Grothama, All-Devouring and then I fell there on your deck... and dude, it's just awesome! And it's even fully flavorful, as Grothama devours other players boards.
Here are some ideas I had in mind looking at your built. Some of them are not budget, so I'll put them in 3 different categories.
1) Budget :
Brawn / Primal Rage: giving Grothama trample seems pretty essential if you want to be able to push enough pressure, especially against token decks. I really like the Mossbridge Troll you put in there, and this will just make it even more effective!
Roar of Challenge: basically cleans most of the time one of your opponent's board with Grothama.
Vow of Wildness: not so sure about this one but, on the paper, it could give Grothama trample, it could ''nullify'' a bit thief spells, and used on an opponent creature it could push someone into fighting Grothama with a creature he doesn't want to die.
Revenge of the Hunted: brutal.
2) Medium budget (still affordable):
Heroic Intervention: basically does everything you're seeking for there.
Asceticism: same as Heroic Intervention, but just even better as it's an enchantment.
Nylea, God of the Hunt: provides combat's tricks and trample to Grothama. She's certainly a staple in this kind of deck if your budget allows you to play her.
3) High budget (still affordable, but a bit more expensive):
Vigor: as someone already mentioned it before, he has to be a blast there. Definitely, a card you should keep in mind for the future if you can't buy it now.
Garruk Wildspeaker: does really nice here. He curves perfectly with Grothama and untaps two lands so you can play your instants. Both other options are still good.
Triumph of the Hordes: unfun card, for sure, but damn... it's just too good not to be played.
