CyborgAeon: I wish, since there's a couple things that will go well with it.

Hey MagicalHacker, saw your vid on EDHrec. Seems like you're "moving on up" perhaps even to the East side... Puns aside, I require your assistance or suggestion and appreciate all the help you've given me in the past. I'm stuck between commanders and plan on liquidating one of my decks that just isn't playing like I want to (that being Karametra). So the commanders that I'm contemplating is:
Marwyn, the Nuturer: elf tribal more or less. Marwyn can go infinite with just a few elves and things like Umbral Mantle or capable of generating large amounts of mana with cards like Seeker of Skybreak or Quirion Ranger ECT. Finishers would be green staples Craterhoof Behemoth or Worldspine Wurm . Maybe Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre for laughs. Generate a lot of mana and cast a huge Hurricane or Squall Line offset by beat downs or Wellwisher . Heck Killer Bees would be a funny way to kill someone... Tighter budget due to less trade then the next 2 commanders.
Feather, the Redeemed : cantrips for CA. But this would feel more like Colton. But she also seems like the flavor of the month atm but reminds me of my old Zada deck so I have most the caltrops already before the price hikes due to the hype.
Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle : not your typical commander. Uniquely a land but can still be modified by how creatures etb as well as landfall. Can generate infinite mana with Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura for shenanigans. Not doing sea creature tribal so finding good lists is a little harder to find. Doesn't interact with counters like typical Simic commanders but becomes a huge 12/12 beater when activated. Lots of cantrips that allow for being unblockable.
Any advice or reccomendations would be greatly appreciated!

eatmygender: Thank you so much for the +1! <3
My deck doesn't draw that many lands to make use of the two small dudes, though I wish I could add at least one of them, since they make Quirion Ranger go infnite, but that reason alone is a terrible one for this deck unfortunately :/.
As for Finale of Devastation , it's already in the live version of the deck that's currently testing Bond of Flourishing and Root Maze as well. Will be posting edits depending on how well testing goes, but one thing is for sure, Finale of Devastation is definitely a main part of the deck.

Well, I am a fan of Selvala, Explorer Returned . A group-hug effect tacked onto a name more recognizable in its mono-green form, however, I found that Selvala, Explorer Returned gives roughly 3-4 mana on tap. That is an amazing advantage.
Take abuse of this, with effects like Smothering Tithe , Well of Lost Dreams , or Paradox Engine , use more untap-effects like Instill Energy , Quirion Ranger , Scryb Ranger , Wirewood Symbiote , Vitalize , Nature's Chosen (A favorite), Emerald Charm , and numerous other green untap effects that cost less than the tap on Selvala herself, and you can storm off through your deck, just trying to find Paradox Engine , Well of Lost Dreams , or another payoff, and you will draw your deck.
This list is just an unbudgeted variant: Selvala Hugstorm (Semi-Competitive Combo)

CyborgAeon: My issue with Defense of the Heart is that it's too easy to play around in my Meta, so it will end up being 4 mana for an easily telegraphed tutor. The deck also doesn't win outright with any two creatures, so this would be to set up a combo that won't mean much of summoning sickness is an issue.
Quirion Ranger : It's honestly amazing and I've been tinkering with the idea of trying out Elvish Pioneer for that reason, so I can make it infinite. Burgeoning is pretty dead unless I have Quirion Ranger out, since I only have 31 lands. I would consider it more if Scryb Ranger was in the list.

I noted that this is excluded & I'm sure there's good reasoning for it: Defense of the Heart . Though this card is vulnerable it fetches a busted level of advantage, is tutor for two permanents and puts them into play. A sweet value option could be Seedborn Muse & Duskwatch Recruiter Flip / Great Oak Guardian & cat to close a game.
Also - a note: you use the Quirion Ranger tact, but no Burgeoning ? On it's own is ok - providing that early game fast mana for your powerful t2, and in conjunction with bouncers that untap you can gain great mana advantage without sacrificing speed.

Really cool deck! I'm glad you built a version for us mortals who have to play edh on a budget. I've been playing a proxy version of the budget deck with my friends for a few days (I like to get a feel for how a deck plays before I buy it) and I have some feedback to share. The main problem I've run into is I can make a ton of mana, but don't have anything to do with it. Maybe I've been keeping hands that should be mulligans because all they do is make a lot of mana, but I think the deck is struggling from having a few less tutors than the non budget version (obviously since tutors can be expensive). Elvish Harbinger is kinda weird and definitely slow but does the job of getting Priest of Titania or Elvish Archdruid if you need mana or Fierce Empath or Fauna Shaman for more tutoring or even something like Reclamation Sage if you really need it. It's also an elf for all the elf synergies. Time of Need is definitely niche but can get Marwyn, the Nurturer or Yisan, the Wanderer Bard in a pinch. On the other hand, maybe it's worth considering playing some regular old card draw to replace the lost tutors. Guardian Project is a strictly worse Beast Whisperer (not an elf) but is a consideration for the budget build. Also, how do you feel about Quest for Renewal ? It's definitely slow, but might be worth it in a budget deck like this which isn't trying to be as fast as possible. Finally, I found that Scryb Ranger really underperforms. Being two more mana than Quirion Ranger and not an elf really hurts, and I'm not sure if you need two copies of the effect in the deck anyway. I've been destroying with the deck (my playgroup is seriously about edh, but I wouldn't consider it cutthroat competitive) and find it super fun to play.
