hey it's your boy hydracord from your ap european class. now to make this deck as degenerate as possible to the point where it doesn't become fun anymore.
Colossus of Akros: 18 mana is better funneled into a Genesis Wave.
Courser of Kruphix: You should have a higher density of dorks to get turn 2 Selvala out, and Courser is 2 turns behind on that.
Gyre Sage: Pretty redundant once you have Selvala or your dorks out.
Mistcutter Hydra: Dumb beater that's susceptible to all types of removal.
Protean Hydra: Same deal as Mistcutter Hydra. Most removal spells don't come from damage spells, so it's not going to be immune to most removal.
Chariot of Victory, Fleetfeather Sandals: Concordant Crossroads is better than both of these.
Roar of Challenge: I've never seen this card drawn or played ever. Regardless of that, I don't think it's that good once you go to an LGS since people there have spellslinger decks.
Oran-Rief: Your creatures are fucking huge. You don't need them to be slightly huger.
Tranquil Thicket can just be a basic.
Skyshroud Claim gets significantly worse in a mono-colored deck. Play more dorks instead.
Vorinclex will end the game more often than not. You can also cast him ridiculously early.
Scryb Ranger, Wirewood Symbiote, Quirion Ranger, Thousand-Year Elixir: I know that you don't wanna play these, but hear me out. Wirewood Lodge is probably one of the scariest cards in your entire deck. Now imagine if you had 5 of them.
Duskwatch Recruiter: Efficient filtering early game and allows you to pump infinite mana into him so you can cast every creature in your deck.
Song of the Dryads is nice removal.
Woodland Bellower: Great toolbox card, but you should probably grab Phyrexian Dreadnought and its friends with it 99% of the time.
Fierce Empath: Tutors for something big and something that'll probably win you the game.
Vigor, while expensive, is a fucking insane card.
Heroic Intervention will save your stuff from wraths, removal, and MLD. Using it for removal is probably the most applicable case, though.
Triumph of the Hordes because there's no kill like overkill.

Hi there. I've a similar deck Ruric Thar Smash Face with only a few noncreature spells. Maybe you can find some ideas there. On a quick view I'd suggest:
- Quirion Ranger is great to untap Priest of Titania and get you an additional mana if you don't have a land drop.
- Channeler Initiate fixes color mana, triggers Garruk's Packleader and can simply kill a mana dork to enter as a 3/4 beatstick lategame.
- My meta is plagued by control and counter, so Prowling Serpopard is a must, as well as a bunch of indestructibles like Rhonas the Indomitable, Stonehoof Chieftain and Spearbreaker Behemoth.
- It's also very helpful to have ways to cheat the fatties into play, like Elvish Piper and Champion of Rhonas
- Great Oak Guardian is a blast. Flash, untaps your folks and pumps them. Can be used on offense and defense alike and reach is a great plus.

This is a pretty neat Sisay build, I like your win-con though I think there are some far simpler combos available to you. I use Cloudstone Curio + Bontu's Monument with Paradox Engine out, used to use engine to play all my legendary creatures and swing table for lethal but this is far more effective and I still have the swing ftw option. It's also simpler to set up than aetherflux as monument is tutorable with sisay so the only piece that isn't is curio which you just grab with Inventors' Fair.
I highly recommend you run some rocks and Gaddock Teeg should be in every sisay list, he just shuts down so much and with yisan in your list you have a great means to break parity. Toss in Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, Seedborn Muse, and Quirion Ranger you'll have all the pieces you need to setup a quick win through yisan e.g. v1: ranger; v2 Grand Abolisher or Gaddock Teeg; v3 Eidolon of Rhetoric or my fav Shaman of Forgotten Ways (for the spicy bio win); v4 Hokori, Dust Drinker; v5 muse; v6 kamahl; v7 elesh norn; next untap destroy all lands and if you have shaman bio to knock everyone down/kill. This is usually pretty easy to pull off once you get a cradle on field and you have a forest to use to untap yisan. I am usually able to win in 2 turns once yisan hits the field. I only take this path if I am unable to combo-off by t4 by either not having the necessary pieces and needing to play out stax.

I think Generator Servant could be great in your deck as it can enable some powerful starts: Either use it play your commander with haste, or create an even bigger hydra and haste it up.
Somberwald Sage would probably also be amazing, since it can also help pump out huge fatties really quickly.
A couple of cards that can untap your commander might be another good idea: Thousand-Year Elixir,Quirion Ranger or Seeker of Skybreak are options.

Here are some suggestions for Mono Elf decks

Great deck! I also play lots of paper pauper and find non-Metta decks very interesting.
A few things to consider are Rancor, Might of the Masses, Nest Invader, Nettle Sentinel, Quirion Ranger, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk and Mutagenic Growth. Rancor can be used to push through with trample and get an extra 2 power in there. Might of the Masses will double your Scion of the Wilds power and toughness. Nest Invader gives your Scion of the Wild +2/+2. Nettle Sentinel is another great one drop. Quirion Ranger can get you 2 mana turn 2 if you don't have a second land and is also a one drop to boost your Scion of the Wild. Skarrgan Pit-Skulk is another one drop that can come in as a 2/2 that cant be blocked by creatures smaller than it. Lastly Mutagenic Growth is a pretty much free card that will save a creature from burn or just pump your guy just enough to go in for the kill.

Elvish Piper was in the deck, and it's a good card. The reason why I use Norwood Priestess instead of Elvish Piper is the difference in speed. Priestess can be activated faster than Piper. Another reason is that Priestess is much more convenient to use with untappers (Quirion Ranger and Wirewood Lodge for example), because you dont need an additional mana for reuse of its ability. And a little bonus - Priestess has in its mana cost for devotion (Karametra's Acolyte, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx).
But I do like Elvish Piper, and I would like to use both of them, Piper and Priestess, I will think about it.

I think this is a pretty decent though there are definitely too many highs cmc bombs that just aren't good enough for cEDH and don't do much in the way of getting you a win. I mean first off, you should cut Akroma's Memorial and toss in Concordant Crossroads, sure it isn't tutorable but it doesn't need to be when you can draw your deck with the addition of Cloudstone Curio. Also, you don't need haste half the time cause Sisay has a great line using Bontu's Monument with curio out to kill table which is far easier to pull off than past combos using Aetherflux Reservoir. Other notable cuts that should be made are dragonlord, and avacyn. I'd probably toss in yisan and Quirion Ranger as it gives you an excellent way to break parity in more stax heavy games.
