Planewide Celebration Discussion
3 months ago
Since I have absolutely no idea how to best play this, I'll just say: I assume you've seen MTGGoldfish's Against the Odds with this combo? Might be a good place to look if you haven't!
He doesn't run the Setessan Champion obviously since it wasn't out yet, but I think the 4 Leafkin Druids is probably better than Altar of the Pantheon. And maybe other ramp cards like the new Migration Path will be good to help you get to Planewide Celebration mana?

You, sir. I admire your earnestness.
For getting more counters, I HIGHLY suggest Yawgmoth, Thran Physician. Golgari is an excellent color combination for getting a ton of cards in your hand and a ton of mana, so you could easily go from a couple of counters to 10 in a turn. Same logic for Planewide Celebration. 7 mana for 4 counters each isn't a bad deal. Lean into green ramp. You can definitely afford to fire off 1-for-1 2-mana green ramp spells, so long as you're drawing with Tymna.
You can amplify the effects of your infect and proliferate cards with Winding Constrictor and Corpsejack Menace. Hand of the Praetors and Phyrexian Swarmlord are infect lords, so they should probably see play. Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons means that all of your infect creatures explode into deathtouching snakes when they trade in combat.
Swamp Mosquito doesn't say infect, but it has non-keyworded Infect. Suq'Ata Assassin has non-keyworded Fear, but also gives poison counters with evasion. If you want to load up on the cheapest, most efficient bodies with infect, then it might be worth running Pit Scorpion, too.
The reason why I would go for a bigger spread of bodies is that it will ultimately be more efficient to load up on instant-speed mass pump spells, rather than having to draw and cast poorly-suited cards for Commander like Giant Growth. In priority order, I'd go Return of the Wildspeaker, Overrun, Pride of Conquerors, Make a Stand, Dark Triumph, Borrowed Grace, Zealous Persecution, Fortify, Sigil Blessing.

I mentioned it as a single card way to get the same effect. The previously mentioned way requires a 1 of enchantment and a 3 of planeswalker on board at the same time, where Nissa does a very similar job of getting to the required mana for Planewide Celebration with only the 1 card alone. I understand that the payoff for playing it on your opponent's endstep will lead to the instant win, but why not provide a more reliable way to get the citizen token and life gain while also giving a threat in itself, as well as the perfect target to just proliferate 4 times. I just think that you will be able to get the required conditions for Happily Ever After and pass the turn without losing through this route than you would trying to assemble a tough combo on the end step.
Think of it this way... You +1 Teferi with a Nissa on board, with a minimum 3 Forests and any other source of mana (dorks, Island, another Forest, whatever). End step you can do the exact same play pattern that you would if you were to use Wilderness Reclamation. But by using Nissa instead you have an alternate reason to use Planewide Celebration without needing the Happily Ever After, proactively apply pressure through a constantly growing board state, and still have a green permanent on board for what its worth.
Just explaining my reasoning why I think it may just be strictly better for what your purpose is, but at the end of the day its your deck. It looks like fun to play, I always enjoy these alternate win-condition style builds.

pistolpeteiii Wilderness Reclamation and Teferi, Time Raveler allow for the possibility of Planewide Celebration hitting on my opponent's end step. Because the turn would then pass to me and there is no priority change taking place during untap to upkeep there is no chance for my opponent to interact with and remove the 2/2 5 color token that helps trigger Happily for the win

Some potential cards. Most of these might be side-grades or out of budget but are worth noting in the Maybeboard. I have a few of these:
Creatures are obviously optimal, what with elf anthems and counters and stuff. I would try to squeeze in the first three if you can. The tempo of getting your commander down on turn 2 is amazing.
Fyndhorn Elves , Priest of Titania , Boreal Druid , Farhaven Elf , Leyline of Abundance , Castle Garenbrig , Llanowar Tribe , Overgrowth , Reap and Sow , Kodama's Reach , Explosive Vegetation , Nature's Lore , Ranger's Path , Skyshroud Claim , Grow from the Ashes , Emerald Medallion , Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, Harrow , Circuitous Route
Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Mirror Shield , Zendikar Resurgent , Primal Rage , Heroic Intervention , Return to Nature , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Beastmaster Ascension , Loxodon Warhammer , Colossal Majesty , Rancor , Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Blossoming Defense , Withstand Death , Titanic Brawl , Ancient Animus , Momentous Fall , Nature's Claim , Once and Future , Regrowth , Wildest Dreams , Road of Return , Creeping Corrosion , Season of Growth , Blanchwood Armor , Sandwurm Convergence , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Vivien Reid , Vivien of the Arkbow , Ghost Quarter ,
Aspect of Mongoose is nice but prevents untapping shenanigans with your commander.
Some obvious out-of-budget stuff here and some lower-powered stuff too but I'll suggest them for posterity.
Llanowar Reborn , Karn's Bastion , Forge of Heroes , The Great Henge , Incubation Druid , Loyal Guardian , Tuskguard Captain , Pollenbright Druid , Solidarity of Heroes , Biogenic Upgrade , Durable Handicraft , Planewide Celebration , Courage in Crisis , Verdant Confluence , Bow of Nylea , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Hydra's Growth , Path of Discovery , Retreat to Kazandu , Forced Adaptation , Evolutionary Escalation , New Horizons , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Vivien, Arkbow Ranger , Kalonian Hydra , Arbor Armament , Stony Strength , Savage Summoning , Hunger of the Howlpack , Soul's Might , The Crowd Goes Wild , Armory of Iroas , Weapon Rack , Predatory Hunger , Primeval Bounty

Hmm, I remember Planewide Celebration pinging across my radar when it came out in War of the Spark. It does have cool effects, but that CMC is ridiculous - even for this deck. A consistent theme for this deck is that If i'm paying somewhere around 7 mana for a card then it will potentially upend the whole board. Why spend seven mana on Celebration when I could just drop in Bae ? Or Side-chick Sheoldred ? I wish Celebration had a bit more oomph to it that would lend itself to this deck, but the best possible option of maybe 3 proliferation triggers and a returning of something good to play next turn (cuz i'm totally tapping out to play thing) is definitely in the "win-more" category.
I'm searching for a card that helps the deck more consistently Soft Lock the board state. Something nasty that will serve as a means of defeating/deterring opponent's strategies while I circumvent the boardwide locks I put in place. But at the same time can lend itself to Infect. Please, keep your suggestions coming though - I'm sure i've definitely missed some good cards out there that this deck could use.
