Chief of the Scale seems pretty underwhelming. I might run Eladamri's Call, in its place, helps you get what you need and also have plenty of warriors. I do like your idea of Iroas, maybe cut the other captain for him.

I'm not a huge fan of Pathbreaker Ibex I really think Overwhelming Stampede is better any time you don't have haste. The fact that it is a non warrior with no protection for itself are two huge downsides.

I don't like Whispersilk Cloak but do like Vanquisher's Banner. I also always run Swan Song now. It's ability to save you from destruction and board wipes, and even other counters, in a pinch is really helpful.

TODO: Add Seize the Day, World at War, and Rogue's Passage. Skip Berserk as it's alternate cost is too high considering how likely it is to also be somehow countered. Skip also Pathbreaker Ibex as its cost make it slower and it will be slower still if it somehow comes out without haster.

Consider adding Berserk, Pathbreaker Ibex, Seize the Day, and Rogue's Passage as additional win cons.

Bocajtioneb I love your deck, here are some suggestions.

Rishkar's Expertise/Garruk, Primal Hunter. Super useful card draw, especially rishkar.

Traverse the Outlands - RAMP

Malignus - DEATH TO ONE PERSON

Pathbreaker Ibex/Rancor - Provides trample

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - MANA (and some card draw)

Siege Behemoth - Fav card in my xenagos deck

Sneak Attack - 1 red for vorinclex, double ur mana, cast shit, sneak in more dudes, swing

I'd like to hear your thoughts on my deck Xenabro if you could spare a moment.

Yep, that's my build. I only got to play it once (since I have quite a lot of EDH decks and my playgroup meets up roughly once a month). That game was pretty good and I won the match (though there were some good draws in the match). The card that get your tokens through really perform well, like Craterhoof Behemoth, Champion of Lambholt, Triumph of the Hordes and Pathbreaker Ibex.

Delta-117, your post is nothing but impressive. 75 minutes is alot of time to dedicate to a single post. Thank you.

Back in 2016, I wanted to acquire an Atraxa deck for myself, but unfortunately she was completely sold out everywhere. I had to settle for Breya, Etherium Shaper and Yidris, Maelstrom Weilder. Fast forward to 2018, and at a new LGS I spotted an Atraxa precon just sitting in the window. I asked if she was for sale, and ended up trading a Engineered Explosives and paying roughly 20ish bucks I think. I was lucky, because I wasn't the only person interested. I really wanted to build a deck surrounding the Praetors, because well...they're just really cool cards. I picked up a few at another LGS...but for this deck? I had plans.

Also, yes playing this deck is alot like archenemy. I am quickly voted Persona non grata, and the whole table quickly swoops in to destroy and dismantle all of my tools...while other less "scary" decks establish better boardstates, and eventually dominate the table into submission. Every game needs a villain, and I happily fill that role. And at the very least I have fun with it. I can't help but joke when I infect the whole table.

LANDS: The bond lands are cool and all, I just feel hesitant to include non-typed duals. Also the drawback is that those lands are duds if I ever play a 1v1 game. Admittedly it'd be rare when that happens, but it is definitely a possibility. Also,they can't be tutored. I'll admit the manabase is far from perfect, but i'll do some thinking (using your suggestions of course) and revise the list. What's funny is that I have a physical copy of Inkmoth Nexus in the deck already, but it's not on the digital list lol. Thanks for pointing that out.

Steady Progress is there primarily to keep tempo and increase poison counters on players, and drawing an extra card before the beginning of a turn is always a win. Now, Reliquary Tower is pretty niche. My deck doesn't get me a lot of draw unfortunately (something i'm working on), and the rare chance that Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur stays on the board long enough to really make Tower relevant...would be a surprise to me. I have a 2019 Reliquary Tower promo of it in my trade binder, I think i'll hold onto it and maybe do some experimenting.

Gavony Township seems like a really cool include. Given that most infect creatures need an increase in power and toughness placing +1/+1 counters on all of them in one fell swoop could be just the solution i'm looking for. I'll find a way to include it in the list.

CREATURES: I have a Phyrexian Swarmlord, just been trying to figure out how to work it into the deck. Corpse Cur has definitely been something of a dud where there have been just so few valid targets to bring back from the grave. My only qualm is that the deck needs some form of recursion, but Phyrexian Swarmlord is the bomb that this deck definitely needs to have a strong board state in the late game. I'll go ahead with your suggestion of swapping out the Putrefy, and see what happens. As for Champion of Lambholt, given that +1/+1 counters will never take center stage i'm hesitant to include her despite the benefits of the evasion she provides. Blightsteel Colossus is cool. Really, really cool. On theme, and intimidating- however the high CMC (even for this deck) just makes it unappealing to me.

Your other suggestion of Conqueror's Flail offers good protection (at least on my turn) and can potentially pump my creature up to +4/+4. If I see one, i'll pick it up and experiment with it. Also, I took a look at both lists and both Become Immense, Vines of Vastwood, and Mutagenic Growth (the flavor!) all caught my eye. All cards are instant speed, and can definitely make a player who begrudgingly accepts 1 poison counter to get far more than they bargained for. I want to figure out what to cut in order to include these beauties. Now, for Spellskite I like it. Full of flavor, and would be potentially a great albeit temporary defense. I just don't know what to cut for it. But the suggestion of Hatred really gave me pause. That's cool. It's applicable both early and late game...and can potentially end a player immediately for a fee of 9 to 17 life. Nobody would see it coming and it would be brutal. I'll definitely see if I can pick one of those up.

So on the topic of planeswalkers...I briefly considered including a Karn of some sort...but they deviate too far from theme. Honestly, I'm not really much of a fan of the mechanic. I have a few decks that have some Planeswalkers in them...but i feel really meh towards them. Just meh. Doubling Season would be great if this were a superfriends deck, but that is definitely something I want to stay away from. I'm just not a fan of those builds. As to your question about that Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, the answer is yes. I have an actual copy of that card. Long story short I was at my LGS playing EDH with a friend and I mentioned that I wanted a copy of that card, but it was 1 - very difficult to find, and 2 - very expensive. Then he just casually mentions that he had one - for trade no less. For a moment I was dumbfounded, but then he reminded me that he was a judge. Funny I didn't pay attention to that. So, with not a moment to spare I whipped out my trade binder and said "do your worst". The follow list below is what he picked up (it's a long one):

It was quite the trade. My friend took my juicy trade binder to town. But in the end, it was all worth it. I look forward to more discussion on this deck. I'll post more of my thoughts later. Thanks for commenting.

You're missing the strongest green wincons for Brudiclad or Riku: Pathbreaker Ibex and Biovisionary. Combat Celebrant also gives infinite combats and infinite damage with Brudiclad. Angrath's Marauders is also great in multiples since the damage doubles then doubles again. Bramble Sovereign is great for making tokens in addition to Riku's trigger. Panharmonicon gives extra triggers from Riku or the stuff you copy.

You also need more stuff to make tokens early on, especially creatures you can copy with Riku, like Young Pyromancer, Master of Waves, and Hanweir Garrison. Sorceries also work since Riku can copy them, so stuff like Hordeling Outburst, Tempt with Vengeance, Sylvan Offering.

Yeva, Nature's Herald and Vedalken Orrery makes this deck quite intimidating. I would cut Predatory Rampage and Living Hive. Siege Behemoth can take Thorn Elemental's place.

I am not sure what to cut for these suggestions. Pathbreaker Ibex Colossal Majesty Zendikar Resurgent Elemental Bond Kavu Lair Whisperwood Elemental Temur Sabertooth &Rowensince you are going all in on Forests.
