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.

With M19 coming soon i'd look to add a Gigantosaurus to this list. Instantly make Ghalta a 2 drop. Also Primeval Protector has the same synergy. Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip could also help with some ramp/mana flow.

When I had my Ghalta list I included some double strike artifacts like Grappling Hook and Fireshrieker because with Ghalta you can 1 shot someone with Commander damage. Looks fun though, +1 from me. Happy brewing!

This is wonderful. I love minion trample. Have you considered the uses of Hardened Scales or Primeval Protector?

Cool deck! I would definitely suggest Primeval Protector, Champion of Lambholt, and Longshot Squad. +1 from me!

Thanks for the input on the deck! I like having Primeval Protector in the deck because it's a 10/10 for usually less than 11 mana. On its own, it enables me to cast Ghalta for 2 mana, and my opponents almost always have creatures to reduce its cost. I'll still consider Hooded Hydra though, although I think I've got enough recursion that a boardwipe isn't crippling.

You're right that I should have some more removal. Titania's Song and Semblance Anvil haven't impressed me so far, so I'll swap them out for Elf Replica and Beast Within (both of which have some utility if my opponents aren't running many enchantments.) I'll see if I can work a couple more removal pieces into the deck, though.

Nice list! Just off a quick glance I'd recommend swapping out Primeval Protector for Hooded Hydra. You can't always rely on opponents having creatures, and the Hydra replaces itself in the event of a boardwipe. I'd also highly recommend adding a bit more removal to deal with problem artifacts and enchantments. Beast Within, Krosan Grip, Tranquil Grove, Back to Nature, even Elf Replica to keep with the artifact theme, all are good options.

Love seeing decks that don't follow the norm!
