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.

Updated Deck - Version 1.2
The goals of this change are to speed up the casting of my best creatures by a turn or two, improve the reliability of finding the payload creatures,and decrease the mana curve a bit.

Added
3x Orcish Lumberjack - Fast mana in this deck's colors
3x Fierce Empath - Tutors the critical pieces
1x Forest - Small increase, as the Lumberjacks both help color balancing and consume Forests. May end up swapping 1 more Mountain for another Forest.

Removed
1x Wickerbough Elder - May add to sideboard
1x Embermaw Hellion
2x Fanatic of Xenagos
2x Deadly Recluse
1x Mountain

+1 for Gruul!!

Birds of Paradise might be a good addition, as would Manglehorn, Fyndhorn Elves, Boreal Druid, Orcish Lumberjack, Primordial Sage, and Elvish Piper!

Thanks, SynergyBuild!!! I particularly love Orcish Lumberjack with 6cmc/3color commanders. I run the Esper color Talisman's in my deck. Definitely something to look into when the new Jund land commander is revealed. I've just never had a Fellwar Stone on hand. Definitely, again, something to look into when we find out the abilities of the new Commander. Though when it's just us two playing together, it's only gonna tap for black, being that I play exclusivly esper.

+1 for this great build! love Orcish Lumberjack

Would you run Talisman of Indulgence, or Talisman of Impulse in addition or as a replacement for the signets? maybe Fellwar Stone if your colors are common in your playgroup!

@ARAMbo, p0megranates, deakmana: I think what I don't like about stuff like Orcish Lumberjack and Root Maze and Dryad Arbor is the inconsistency. Sure, they're ok sometimes, but sometimes when you draw them later they're actually terrible.

I actually had Dryad Arbor (of course, right?) but I got so mad at how it was basically a mulligan everytime it was in my opening hand I dropped it. I think it events out. If it is in your opening hand, you've mulliganed; if GSZ is in your opening hand (and dryad arbor is in the library), then you don't have to mulligan. I think on balance you can just cut it. Then I traded Green Sun's Zenith for Natural Order, since the only targets for either are Manglehorn, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa. So Natural Order is cheaper, generally.

Going to try Lodestone Golem as another hate bear / sphere effect. Dropped Knollspine Dragon since it has decreasing synergy with the stax plan and was becoming a win-more card. I feel like I need more stuff that can possibly interact with combos (such as The Gitrog Monster), so I'm swapping Shamanic Revelation for Lurking Predators in an effort to just flip Ruric Thar if someone starts to go off with Dramatic Scepter or something. Also should have strong value as a Green Mystic Remora. :)

I still stand by adding Impending Disaster and possibly Orcish Lumberjack, otherwise looks great!
