Primal Command Discussion

If you’re running Utopia Sprawl , then you should probably run the full playset of Arbor Elf . Continuing down this line to massive quantities of mana, you should also replace Sylvan Caryatid with Voyaging Satyr , and consider including a bunch (playset?) of Overgrowth also.
Both your planeswalkers, as well as the Rythem enchantment, do almost nothing for you. You goal looks to be bringing out big creatures fast, and the turn required to play these cards negates the benefits they give (you could have just played a creature a turn earlier, instead of having haste). Ditch em!
Consider adding in Primal Command if able. It often can buy you a turn while also tutoring for something you need. This also allows you to run some 1-of utility creatures like Hornet Queen and Acidic Slime .
Blossoming Defense is a sideboard card at best - in a lot of matchups it won’t help you.
How has Genesis Wave gone for you? It feels a little too clunky imo. You need at least 9 mana and even then it’ll often whiff. It’d be better off as just being another big creature.
Also, you really need at least 20 lands, even with all this ramp.

Yea very true KamiKasper, I didn't put Primal Command in the end because I think it disrupted the mana curve. What do I take out for the two other Lightning Bolt though? And so what are your thoughts on Deus of Calamity ? It's one more mana, but it appeals to me because they can be red or green and it destroys a land when it comes into play rather than giving the option to sacrifice one.

Hey KamiKasper, thanks for the insight! I actually did consider Primal Command , maybe I'll put one instead of a Rhythm of the Wild .. but I ended up opting for Rhythm of the Wild because I didn't have a real solution for blue counter spells and I really wanted something that could give my Shivan Wumpus haste. I was also considering putting either Argothian Wurm or Deus of Calamity in the deck instead of Simian Spirit Guide to maximize my opportunity to destroy lands with haste, but I felt it might make my mana curve too high, especially after having removed the Simian Spirit Guide . What do you think?

Awesome deck. Have you considered a copy or two of Primal Command ? I feel like the ability to stall your opponents draw step by putting one of their lands on top of their library is awesome. Also, while Rhythm of the Wild is a super cool card, it doesn't seem to do that much here. Perhaps exchange it for some early protection against the super fast decks.

Sandwurm Convergence would be useful late-game. Brooding Saurian might be a good utility piece. Homeward Path is better but $$. Verdurous Gearhulk maybe? Rhonas the Indomitable and Predator Ooze might make good blockers.

Well, again this will probably all blow the budget, but the following are all really good in this sort of deck:
Garruk Wildspeaker gives you extra untaps which often just pays for himself, as well as free beasts to stall out
Primal Command is very abusable
Courser of Kruphix buys you time with its body and gives you much better draws
