Nylea, God of the Hunt Discussion

Looks good, would you consider Sheoldred, Whispering One and/or Meren of Clan Nel Toth? Cauldron of Souls could provide redundancy for Mikaeus and combo with him as well. Since Jarad gets quite big you could also go more voltron with Nylea, God of the Hunt, Loxodon Warhammer, or Dragon Throne of Tarkir for trample.

TheNightWolfRS on Mayael the Chubby Chaser

Obviously it depends on the meta but I feel like your creature count is quite low, how often do you miss on Mayael? Privileged Position is honestly better replaced by Archetype of Endurance since it's a creature with power 5 or greater with the same effect but it also makes your opponents creatures lose hexproof making your own removal even stronger. Worldspine Wurm is something you should consider as well as the only legitimate way to get rid of it is through exile. Siege Behemoth is definitely a card to consider, in my own play group it birthed the phrase "If I block I die, if I don't block I die.". Looking at the decklist I think the weakest part of the deck is the planeswalkers, Domri Rade and Ajani Vengeant have no great synergy with Mayael the Anima in fact Domri has negative synergy as you'd rather have the creatures on your top deck than in your hand. Sarkhan Vol is very weak in the deck as well as another big creature would give you much more value than what the planeswalker card has to offer, something like Dragonlord Dromoka really protects you from any responses to your plays in your turn and can turn a rough game around, this is the kind of value you should be looking for.I'm going to list some more creatures I'd like to suggest as they offer great value and I'd also suggest that you raise your creature count to around the mid 30's as to really maximise Mayael the Anima. - Spearbreaker Behemoth: protection against a lot single target black removal and board wipes. - Stonehoof Chieftain: one of the strongest plays with this card is to drop it, attack for all then board wipe leaving all your creatures intact.- Blazing Archon: I don't think I really need say anything about this card. - Void Winnower: it can shut players completely out the game and it is a big body.- Avenger of Zendikar: provides you with chump blockers that only get bigger if your opponent(s) don't board wipe. - Atarka, World Render: strong even on its own but with other dragons in your deck things get scary quite quickly. - Hellkite Charger: having an extra combat step often just wins you the game. - Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger: another card that can shut players out the game, or at worst slow them down a turn or two, all while providing you with even more mana to build your board and prepare for the win. - Nylea, God of the Hunt: trample is such a powerful effect, even more so than vigilance, as it prevent chump blocking and if your opponent is struggling for any significant p/t on board then they're forced to find an answer or they will simply lose the game. -Gruul Ragebeast: this is monster of a card if you're already winning as it can reduce you're opponents blocker count significantly with multiple creature triggers but it also serves to provide removal for any big threats you may find yourself facing. - Blightsteel Colossus: this is one of the scariest creatures in magic because one clear hit from this thing and you're just dead, and the trample again removes any ability to chump block with small creatures. - Chord of Calling: the benefits of this card to that of Green Sun's Zenith are that it's an instant and it has convoke which allows for plays like pulling an Avacyn, Angel of Hope out of your library in response to a board wipe. - Skyshroud Claim: this is a lot of the time better than a Tempt with Discovery as if your opponents a smart they will only let you search for one land card whereas skyshroud gets you two forest cards and, with plenty of land cards with the forest typing, gives you more value for the same cmc of spell. Overall I think you've got some basis for a strong deck but it lacks enough creatures to really utilise the insane value you can get off of a commander as powerful as Mayael the Anima.

Dauntless Dourbark and Dungrove Elder might also be fun to test. Splendid Reclamation + Creeping Renaissance might also give you a way to recur massive amounts of land at once after a Crop Rotation without relying on Crucible and Excavator.

Have you ever tested with a Craterhoof Behemoth or other Overrun effect? Or with Nylea, God of the Hunt?

A Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx + Karametra's Acolyte + Voyaging Satyr+ Polukranos, World Eater might also clear out some blockers for you.

Happy brewing!

Try leaving out Gaddock Teeg and put him in the sideboard.

Since the strength of G/W creatures in this type of deck should be high power and toughness you always want to pressure your opponent by dumping in the big creatures. Another thing is you can't play Overwhelming Stampede if Gaddock Teeg is in play. It looks like you overlooked that one. He can be good vs control decks and other decks that have a heavier mana curve such as an Ad Nauseam deck. So he is actually ok. If your idea is to protect the Teeg with Lightning Greaves then Lightning Bolt or any other low cost instant removal spell will counter that plan. Adding a few more high power creatures will do more for the deck. One card I really like is Garruk Wildspeaker. All of his 3 abilities will work really well with your deck; Ramp on his +, more pressure with the minus and ofcourse overrun. Cheaper cost cards that can help you trample in for a win could be Unflinching Courage and/or Rancor.1 Nylea, God of the Hunt + 1 Garruk Wildspeaker could be a solid option since they are much harder for most opponents to remove and they can set you up for the overrun to victory! Try it out.. hope it helps. :)

Oh and Nylea, God of the Hunt. Her buffing power is not as cost effective as some of your cheaper spells but she does have the ability to be reusable and indestructible!
