I love Patron of the Orochi, and it used to be in the deck. However, it being 8 mana, doing next to nothing for your creatures on board, and having no synergy with your general, it does not belong in this deck.

What OtherWorldlyShadow said regarding command tower basically is true for Ash Barrens as well. If you use it to fetch for a forest, you could have had the same result with one more untapped mana source by playing a forest instead. 31 lands definitely seems not enough btw. 34 should be better, and I could even argue for 35. More great sources of ramp could be Emerald Medallion and Rhonas's Monument. A wurm card that I really adore is Panglacial Wurm. It has a very unique ability and is massively fun to surprise opponents with.

Looking at your wurms, you have many with combined power and toughness of either 10 or 14, so Wild Pair could be a blast to play.

An absolutely ridiculous card for mono-G lists is Myojin of Life's Web, and Patron of the Orochi is a versatile combination of beatstick, ramp and vigilance for your whole team.

I considered Thousand-Year Elixir and have Aurelia, the Warleader, but I ended up not going with the Elixir because it only benefited Atla Palani, Nest Tender and I cut it for another beefy monster space. I didn't think about Patron of the Orochi. It fits the theme and looks like a phenomenal addition. :)

To help untap, you could use Staff of Domination, Thousand-Year Elixir, Aurelia, the Warleader, Patron of the Orochi, Awakening, Samut, Voice of Dissent, Magewright's Stone, Sword of the Paruns and Gideon, Martial Paragon.

Pretty fun deck though! I like how you even got egg craetures among it haha

Profet93 I'm a fan of these types of spells, that's why I threw Patron of the Orochi because he does the same thing but I can repeat it every turn instead of having a one time use. I've been contemplating with a more aggressive, competitive build and I'd totally rock these in that build.

Gnardawg a buddy of mine pulled a full art foil and we traded out right, so it essentially cost me nothing. Prismatic vista is on my buy list for the deck and I'll get to it eventually.
