Creature — Human Druid
Soulbond (You may pair this creature with another unpaired creature when either enters the battlefield. They remain paired for as long as you control both of them.) As long as Nightshade Peddler is paired with another creature, both creatures have Deathtouch.

Nightshade Peddler Discussion

I like this deck. You're inspiring me to try to put something similar together with the cards I have on hand. Another card that's on theme for this deck would be Nature's Way. Nothing like a one-way fight followed by a trampling attack, especially of you have Nightshade Peddler in there too (maybe as a sideboard card). Thanks for another fine contribution to Casual, my favorite format.

I like this deck a lot. I found a Lathliss, Dragon Queen in the most recent pack I opened, and it made me want to make a Commander deck out of it. I mostly play 60 card Casual, though, and this looks a lot like the deck I had in mind, translated to Casual. You seem to have covered the bases well.
As to suggestions, check out my Ruric Thar, May I? deck. It operates on a nearly all creature basis, but it's Green-Red like this one and runs Forgestoker Dragon, which would fit well here. Inferno Titan is a major player too. They combo soooo well with Nightshade Peddler to clear a path to victory or just remove the creatures that are hurting you. Ogre Battledriver can help with Haste. Orcish Lumberjack is awesome ramp, though you'd want to shift to a few more Forests if you run that.

Marath, Will of the Wild is paired with Nightshade Peddler. He's left on two counters and I remove both to try to kill opposing Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. Do I succeed or since Marath is no longer paired, the one damage that he will deal is devoid of deathtouch?

Thanks for all the suggestions! I did origionally have Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker included but took him out as I couldn't justify having him in if not for the infinite combos lol. Will definitely take a look at fitting in Ranging Raptors and Nightshade Peddler as I can see them going really well with this list. I'm at least sideboarding Stoneforge Mystic as well!

One card I love with Marath is Nightshade Peddler, as giving Marath deathtouch turns his ability into "Remove one counter from Marath, Destroy target creature" (as you no doubt know given Basilisk Collar's inclusion). I also like to run the Birthing Pod line with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to make infinite tokens, but as you mentioned preferring to play a bit more casually that infinite combo may be a bit much for your playgroup (depending). Ranging Raptors is another card I like with Marath, ping it and ramp into next week. Stoneforge Mystic can be good to fetch up you equipment cards.

This deck seems fun to play, because new opponents will hate you, since banding is known as a very complicated mechanic. Admitably its not as bad as its rumored to be.
Couldn't soulbonds be cool for this deck? Adds an other layer of teaming up, almost like a double-band. Silverblade Paladin seemed like the best one, as it does not pump the power, so you still get the flanking thing form Sidar Kondo. But Wolfir Silverheart, Nightshade Peddler, Diregraf Escort and Nearheath Pilgrim all seem fun if you really like the idea.
Ofc, this does not exactly fit your old cards theme, but it's a cool addition to the banding mechanic.

Illusionist's Bracers are insanely good on Marath, when he's equipped with Basilisk Collar or bonded with Nightshade Peddler, or Aura Shards is out, and you put on Illusionist's Bracers, you become the god of removal.
Fertilid and Marath are of course my fav haha, essentially pay 3 with Marath as many times as you have mana and counters to keep finding basic lands.
Cathars' Crusade is amazing.
Vigor is great.
Archangel of Thune with Spike Feeder for a lifegain combo: remove a +1 from Spike to gain 2 life, which triggers Archangel to put a +1 back on Spike, which you can remove endlessly for infinite life and an infinitely pumped board.
