Primeval Protector , Ghoultree , Terra Stomper , Khalni Hydra , All these are big cards that either are cheap for their power,or becomes cheaper as time goes on. Maybe Phytotitan , since its difficult to keep it down, even though its easy to kill.

You might consider some cheap replacements: Vivid Creek , Vivid Marsh , Vivid Crag and Vivid Grove instead of Dismal Backwater , Jungle Hollow , Rugged Highlands and Swiftwater Cliffs for extra mana-fixing (which is needed in a 4-color deck). Also: Llanowar Wastes , Yavimaya Coast and Shivan Reef are cheap untapped lands. // You might consider Farseek , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Explosive Vegetation and Circuitous Route for further ramp. Farseek can grab Sunken Hollow , Smoldering Marsh or Cinder Glade , while Circuitous Route can search for Simic Guildgate , Izzet Guildgate and Golgari Guildgate . // You might run Fact or Fiction , Steam Augury and Ancient Excavation for early card draw and graveyard filler for delve cards, like Murderous Cut , Dig Through Time and Tasigur, the Golden Fang (they all got reprinted). Brainstorm and Painful Truths are also great draw spells. // Izzet Charm , Crosis's Charm and Sultai Charm are really versatile removing threats. They could replace Scour from Existence . // Zendikar Resurgent is a mana-doubler, which can fuel big Comet Storm , Blue Sun's Zenith , Pull from Tomorrow , Exsanguinate and Curse of the Swine . // Since you are playing expensive spells, Deep-Sea Kraken , Combustible Gearhulk , Avatar of Fury , Avatar of Woe , Primeval Protector , Sunbird's Invocation , Metallurgic Summonings are great ways to deal a lot of damage.

Since Nikya is your commander, you can play 12 mana creatures the turn after he comes out, and that's impressive. Here's a few budget options. Ancient Stone Idol , Darksteel Colossus , Desolation Twin , Pathrazer of Ulamog , Artisan of Kozilek , Ulamog's Crusher , It That Betrays , Primeval Protector . Some other fun cards are hydras like Heroes' Bane , Polukranos, World Eater , and Primordial Hydra .

Some more creature ramp is Burnished Hart or even Wild-Field Scarecrow if you wanted.

For a creature heavy deck, I highly suggest Garruk's Horde , Vizier of the Menagerie , Primordial Sage , and Soul of the Harvest .

Hi nfamouspanda,

We like what you've done here; looks fun to play! We have some ideas for you that we hope will make your deck even more fun:

Cards from your current selection that we would cut to make room:

  • Panglacial Wurm/Vorosh, the Hunter/Primeval Protector; powerful for sure, but each is very expensive to cast and not needed for your overall strategy;
  • Memory Erosion; nice card but would be more at home in a mill-deck, furthermore you do not have many cards in this deck that profit from what's in your opponent's graveyard to fully utilize this card.

We hope this has helped you some. Please let us know! And if you feel like you have the time/inclination, we would love your feedback on our EDH decks. Have fun with this deck (and MTG overall)!

With kind regards,

Mrs. & Mr. NV_1980

Though I see some ways to make creatures have it, not seeing enough 'Trample'. Very weak to chump or recursion builds as playing more than 1 or 2 big threats a turn might be tough, even at Instant speed. For example, Primeval Protector... seems like Ghalta, Primal Hunger would be a better fit in that slot. Could have missed a card or interaction, but only seeing 9 interactions for Panharmonicon. Might be worth cutting it all together, unless moving into an ETB strategy like MFarrar mentioned. Nissa, Genesis Mage is kind of confusing. Adding things like Genesis Wave and Primal Rage might be good adds if you'd prefer not to have Trample on all creatures built in. Agree with MFarrar about diverisfying the non-basic lands. Ghost Quarter, Maze of Ith, Temple of the False God, Reliquary Tower, Command Tower, Command Beacon, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and Field of Ruin are just to name a few.
