Damn, I actually didnt even think about the tokens triggering experience counters, that's a really good point. Those cards become a lot better in that sense. I think I misunderstood your game plan, I was pushing towards a much grindier experience-counters-matters build, since players cant interact with the experience counters I feel as thought it provides an extreme inevitability. Also, something I thought of is infect creatures. They definitely are bad without trample but its something interesting to think of as a 1-of to just randomly dump counters on and kill someone, especially Blighted Agent since it can't be blocked. Also, my thinking with hardened scales is that it synergizes really well with other proliferate effects, so if you aren't running them it probably isn't worth adding. Finally, I think Nest Invader is not worth it. If you wanted to get the turn three ezuri Birds of Paradise is better because it saves you 1 mana for other spells, has flying, taps for colors, and is reusable. It's worth more than a single experience counter. I also think squirrel nest is less good when you aren't focusing on winning through it. I think that you could run Earthcraft as a hasty Cryptolith Rite and then not look back.

Okay so first of all: one drops of two different colors in pauper is really awkward. It should work out fine most of the time but I feel like it might turn some hands that would be auto wins if you can play your 1 drop into pretty bad hands. In fact, you can see how awkward it makes things by your mana base: if you had another red 1 drop instead of Young Wolf , you could probably get away with swapping 2 forests for 2 mountains.

I'm not a fan of Horned Kavu : it's a big pile of stats, sure, but it puts you behind on tempo and it leaves you very vulnerable to Snap which is a blue staple. I would much rather see a fourth Burning-Tree Emissary and another two drop like Nest Invader or Mogg War Marshal which would help you trigger Morbid. (As a side note, Blastoderm + Horned Kavu doesn't actually work because Blastoderm has shroud)

Speaking of Blastoderm , I'm not a big fan of it because it can't come down before turn 4, which is the turn you're either going to be overtaken by other aggro decks or the turn a control deck will start stabilizing so you need to have an explosive turn 4, which is the complete opposite of Blastoderm as it's just a big pile of stats with no real impact on the field.

Manamorphose isn't great either: it does basically say -1 card in your deck but the filtering doesn't seem very relevant when you could have more action in your deck. If you had a Thermo-Alchemist or a similar card in there, it would be alright but right now, I'd be more happy to see more Rancor .

Overall, I feel like this deck is a bit too slow. Here are some cards to consider to accelerate it: Vines of Vastwood , more Rancor , Nettle Sentinel if the deck veers green, Goblin Cohort and/or Mogg Conscripts , Goblin Bushwhacker if the deck goes wider, Hunger of the Howlpack , Porcelain Legionnaire , Vault Skirge if you have lots of pumps, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk , Savage Swipe if you mostly have 2-power creatures and maybe some more burn in the main like Chain Lightning and Reckless Abandon .

Also little side though I had a 60 card casual mono green eldrazi deck amd before you ask how is that casual, it wasnt big fatty eldrazi like modern or most competitive EDH plays it played. Nest Invader , Kozilek's Predator , Hand of Emrakul , Growth Spasm Awakening Zone simple stuff like that and what I found was having a problem with all these 0/1 tokens on the field so if you have that problem some how in 100cards..... Overwhelming Stampede and cards like that.....food for though

Hey, you're welcome. Fauna was just reprinted in Ultimate Masters, she's now a $5 card :)

I think Wave is worth playing because it's a damn powerful card, but I would cut most instants and sorceries for more permanents to make Wave better. This does make Young Pyromancer worse therefore I would cut him. Cards like Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command are fine, but they're one shot spells that only give you two tokens. You can replace these with other creatures or permanents that give you repeatable tokens even if those cards are more mana. Nest Invader and Mogg War Marshal are other examples of permanents that could replace Fodder and Command.

Cultivate and Ranger's Path are fine cards, but I think they can be cut for creatures who land ramp because then you get two things, a land and a creature to devour. For instance Farhaven Elf can replace Cultivate. Solemn Simulacrum at $5 might be too expensive price, but he's an example that could replace Ranger's Path or Explosive Vegetation . Skyshroud Claim is a much better card than both Path and Vegetation. Another example is Garruk, Primal Hunter could replace Rishkar's Expertise because Garruk's -3 can be a repeatable first part of Expertise. Garruk however might also be out of your price range.

Gilded Lotus , Gruul Signet , Mind Stone can be cut for one drop mana dorks. Altar of the Brood and Hardened Scales can be cut for more dorks. Scales only interacts with three cards in your deck: Thromok, Mycoloth and Avenger. These are however two of the best cards here, but Scales doesn't do anything else for any other creatures for that reason I would cut it.

High CMC creatures who make tokens when they ETB can also be good cards, but only if you have easy ways to recur them or blink/bounce them. Of course there are exceptions such as Avenger. Cards that can be repeatable sources of tokens even if they cost more mana to play are more desirable. Pia and Kiran Nalaar is kind of lackluster here because not playing artifact strategies and the card only gives you two tokens. As a one time four mana play it's not good. Temur Sabertooth is a way to bounce a creature and play it again, it's excellent with the many green creatures who have strong ETB abilities such as Fierce Empath , Reclamation Sage , Eternal Witness , Wood Elves , etc.

Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip and Fauna Shaman should make creatures the priority because these cards only interact with creatures and the interaction is very good since they're engines to get creatures. Priest of Titania is one of the best mana dorks in Commander, if you have her add her especially if adding other mana Elves.


Another strategy to experiment with Thromok is making your lands creatures since then they can be devoured. Living Lands , Life and Limb , Nissa, Vital Force , Sylvan Awakening . When devouring your lands you also wants ways to reanimate them: World Shaper , Ramunap Excavator , Splendid Reclamation .

Shaper has synergy with devour since he has to die to reanimate your lands. Living Lands curves into Thromok giving you devour fodder. The nice thing about Living Lands is your Forests are still lands, they can tap for mana, but they're also creatures who can be devoured.

Land reanimation is good with landfall and landfall is a part of the strategy of repeatable token creation. If you're choosing to add one drop mana dorks then Forests become more important than Mountains thus a higher number of Forests than Mountains.

Hey man! I really love Putrid Leech, I think it's a great card.

I think that you should cut some cards so that you can run 4 of your better cards so you draw them more consistenly

- Silhana Ledgewalker
- Ambush Viper
- and maybe the centaur although I wouldn't because its so cool!

There's some cards you could play some in your mainboard and some in your sideboard those are:

-Young Wolf -River Boa -Pulse of Murasa

The other cards you could play more copies of each except for gurmag, now I will let you know of some cool cards you may enjoy!

And the most important! A dual land Jungle Hollow

Voice of Resurgence is probably your best bet, but I know it's expensive. Nest Invader is decent, as are Slime Molding/Wurmcalling, and Sprout Swarm.
