Oath of Druids
At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player chooses target player who controls more creatures than he or she does and is his or her opponent. The first player may reveal cards from the top of his or her library until he or she reveals a creature card. If he or she does, that player puts that card onto the battlefield and all other cards revealed this way into his or her graveyard.

Oath of Druids is another hug card, but I have used it to get cards into the graveyard and gotten some good creatures out with it. Depends on how you feel about maybe giving other players creatures as well.

goodair Thanks for your comment. Thassa is a good card, for sure. She was in the first brew of the deck but I removed her when introducing Oath of Druids in order to have more consistent hits and dump more cards in the graveyard. I can see a case for putting it back, because it is such a great card. What would you remove for Thassa, God of the Sea?

It does indeed work. Oath of Druids is text vomit, however I made sure to verify rulings on multiple occasions.
It reads: "That...player may reveal cards...until he or she reveals a creature card...."
The "...if he or she does..." refers to the may from revealing, not hitting a creature. It's weird, I agree. But Oath overall is just a strange card to read since there's just so much text.

One piece of tech I've been excited for is Oath of Druids. You do have to reduce your creature count substantially: I only have Gitrog, Titania, Omnath, Borborygmos, Sire Of Insanity, and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. The first two will immediately have targets for their triggers. With so few creatures, your wraths and death clouds become better. I also think you should have an Eldrazi Titan in the deck for the shuffle trigger to save your 'yard and enable Dakmor/Gitrog loops.

Just worked up a list, wondering exactly how this whole tier thing works, CEDH Tier 5 (Just a flash-hulk hermit druid deck) is the list, but the question is, if I can make a competitive deck with any commander, is every commander competitive? is it that a commander like Uril, the Miststalker is bad, because voltron is bad, and he looks voltron, even though I could make a wicked boonweaver list with him as the commander, that could whoops tons of Tier 2.5 lists?
And if the list is really a list based around commanders that not only have the colors required to make a good deck, yet are also supportive of that list, then why is Karona, the False God in Tier 5? Her ability supports an Oath of Druids lists, being able to stack the triggers on your upkeep in a way that you get your Oath of Druids trigger before you get your commander back. With no creatures in your library, Oath of Druids decks yourself. This doesn't win on the spot due to a lack of Narcomoeba and Fatestitcher and Bloodghast, also, this is on upkeep, so you must draw. Memory's Journey to shuffle a Yawgmoth's Will back into the deck, drawing it, and being able to win the game with storming off. In comparison to Hermit Druid combo, it is equally fast (You don't need Karona, the False God if any opponent has a creature, or if you find a Forbidden Orchard), and can be removed with less ease with it being an enchantment. I mean, it is less consistent (no Flash-Hulk or any other support creatures like dorks, and also no Worldly Tutor/Green Sun's Zenith effects), but that is okay, given its power.
So what is this list all about?
