Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter Discussion

Vizier of the Menagerie at least deserves a spot in your sideboard, as it gets you tons of advantage. Uncage the Menagerie is a tad hanky, but given the amount of 5 drops you have, casting it x 5 will win you the game. Also, I would cut Bone Picker and Bontu the Glorified, as they don't really synergise with the miriarch strategy (Deathtouch is irrelevant for miriarch as it is already big enough to kill anything.) Also Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter is super sweet in the late game if you don't draw into a miriarch.

Hey there, seeing as youre playing green have you considered Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter. Also if youre running scrapheap, you might want to play more lands that generate black mana. Unclaimed territory wont work because youre not casting it.

Thanks for the comment. This is a go wide deck that is sorta token-ish, which is why I originally had it in here. Alongside the two creatures you mentioned the enchantment plays well with Rampaging Baloths, Garruk Wildspeaker, Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter, Arachnogenesis and Wolfbriar Elemental, not to mention the fact that Nacatl War-Pride + Parallel Lives basically says "eliminate target player". That being said, it is a bit of an awkward card in this deck and probably will be taken out eventually.
I have been considering Bane of Progress, but I already pack 8 other ways (3 of them are mass removal) to interact with problematic artifacts and enchantments so I was hesitent to add another.
Primeval Bounty is one of those trap commander cards IMO. It seems really good on paper, but never performs well in real life.
I have been considering some haste enablers like Concordant Crossroads, or additional land animators like Natural Affinity, or including Nissa, Worldwaker in the list as they all promote my deck theme. I just need to figure out how hard I want to go into beating down with lands (which this is Jolrael...so pretty hard I guess haha)

Steel Hellkite, maybe Thundering Spineback, Scavenging Ooze, Deadeye Tracker, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Soul of New Phyrexia, Soul of Ravnica, Soul of Zendikar, Soul of Innistrad, Fertilid, Cryptbreaker, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Cemetery Reaper, Silklash Spider, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet, Memnarch, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Polukranos, World Eater, Chameleon Colossus, Heroes' Bane, Viral Drake, Ant Queen, Champion of Stray Souls, Sphinx of Magosi, Stitcher Geralf, Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter
Deadeye Navigator would go infinite with a creature that produces 2 or more blue mana and a haste enabler, such as Concordant Crossroads. Kind of clunky as a 4-card combo, but it's on theme. ALso deadeye is just good to protect from removal.
Remember with these infinite mana combos that infinite mana means infinite Tasigur activations, so you draw your whole deck, and you can mill everyone out with infinite Reality Shifts, which is a good removal spell on its own.

Rhonas's Monument pairs nicely with all your creatures, but it is bonkers with Longtusk Cub+Greenbelt Rampager. I would recommend replacing Frilled Sandwalla for the monument; you only need a 3-of for the monument since it is legendary and you don't want to see two in your hand.
Other recommendations: Find room in your deck for Prowling Serpopard; it turns on Rhonas, and is a cost-efficient body besides. Remove Rhonas's Last Stand for the cat-snake if you can stand to part with it.
Other decent creatures you could consider to fill your one drop are Narnam Renegade, which makes a nasty blocker to trade with an opponent's Carnage Tyrant. Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter could also give you a good utility creature late game. I find she works excellent as a removal magnet when I play her in the early game.

Not sure of your budget but some cards that work with Trostani and that I would recommend putting in:
Beastmaster Ascension this has been reprinted tons of times so should be fairly budget friendly.
Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter is another that works really well with Trostoni.
Ant Queen is another cheap token generator.
If you are looking to fill particular gaps, card draw, removal etc please let me know and I can help there.

I like the mono-green approach.
For one, you have no other energy to support the Cubs. If you don't want to add the elephant, I would remove the Cubs for Druid of the Cowl (although the cubs can often stand on their own). You could also swap some Forests to add Attune with Aether. In a mono-green deck, it will give you some useful energy for the cub and also provide a small amount of deck thinning, allowing you to play fewer lands.For another, the elephant makes for an excellent answer against Ramunup Red, since it can favorably block all their creatures and spell removal. The Druid would also give you a decent blocker to absorb a couple early aggro attacks, plus the mana dork can help feed Lifecrafter's Bestiary.
Combined with the Monument, the Elephant will trigger the monument when you cast it, then return to your hand giving you one energy, and a creature you control +2/+2 and trample. Combined with the Cub, you have a source of to keep putting counters on the Cub. Combined with both, it gets very good very quickly.
I don't know if this deck requires 4x Growing Rites of Itlimoc. I can see where it would be useful once you have a Rhonas the Indomitable or Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter, but it is not really adding to your aggro plan. I would remove the Rites and replace with some green removal - good options for me are Nature's Way and Pounce.
