Hey, would like to cheaply improve your mana-base add in Canopy Vista and Krosan Verge . Cut Explosive Vegetation for Ranger's Path , which is also a flavour win! Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds are just tapped basics in two colour decks so cut them.

I like Beastmaster Ascension , above Coat of Arms , more flavour and cheaper. Also Creeping Renaissance might be better than Eternal Witness , if you can't recur witness.

Hey, you're welcome. Fauna was just reprinted in Ultimate Masters, she's now a $5 card :)

I think Wave is worth playing because it's a damn powerful card, but I would cut most instants and sorceries for more permanents to make Wave better. This does make Young Pyromancer worse therefore I would cut him. Cards like Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command are fine, but they're one shot spells that only give you two tokens. You can replace these with other creatures or permanents that give you repeatable tokens even if those cards are more mana. Nest Invader and Mogg War Marshal are other examples of permanents that could replace Fodder and Command.

Cultivate and Ranger's Path are fine cards, but I think they can be cut for creatures who land ramp because then you get two things, a land and a creature to devour. For instance Farhaven Elf can replace Cultivate. Solemn Simulacrum at $5 might be too expensive price, but he's an example that could replace Ranger's Path or Explosive Vegetation . Skyshroud Claim is a much better card than both Path and Vegetation. Another example is Garruk, Primal Hunter could replace Rishkar's Expertise because Garruk's -3 can be a repeatable first part of Expertise. Garruk however might also be out of your price range.

Gilded Lotus , Gruul Signet , Mind Stone can be cut for one drop mana dorks. Altar of the Brood and Hardened Scales can be cut for more dorks. Scales only interacts with three cards in your deck: Thromok, Mycoloth and Avenger. These are however two of the best cards here, but Scales doesn't do anything else for any other creatures for that reason I would cut it.

High CMC creatures who make tokens when they ETB can also be good cards, but only if you have easy ways to recur them or blink/bounce them. Of course there are exceptions such as Avenger. Cards that can be repeatable sources of tokens even if they cost more mana to play are more desirable. Pia and Kiran Nalaar is kind of lackluster here because not playing artifact strategies and the card only gives you two tokens. As a one time four mana play it's not good. Temur Sabertooth is a way to bounce a creature and play it again, it's excellent with the many green creatures who have strong ETB abilities such as Fierce Empath , Reclamation Sage , Eternal Witness , Wood Elves , etc.

Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip and Fauna Shaman should make creatures the priority because these cards only interact with creatures and the interaction is very good since they're engines to get creatures. Priest of Titania is one of the best mana dorks in Commander, if you have her add her especially if adding other mana Elves.


Another strategy to experiment with Thromok is making your lands creatures since then they can be devoured. Living Lands , Life and Limb , Nissa, Vital Force , Sylvan Awakening . When devouring your lands you also wants ways to reanimate them: World Shaper , Ramunap Excavator , Splendid Reclamation .

Shaper has synergy with devour since he has to die to reanimate your lands. Living Lands curves into Thromok giving you devour fodder. The nice thing about Living Lands is your Forests are still lands, they can tap for mana, but they're also creatures who can be devoured.

Land reanimation is good with landfall and landfall is a part of the strategy of repeatable token creation. If you're choosing to add one drop mana dorks then Forests become more important than Mountains thus a higher number of Forests than Mountains.

You might consider some land ramp for early Gishath on board: Rampant Growth , Farseek , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , Explosive Vegetation , Circuitous Route , Ranger's Path , Skyshroud Claim and Hour of Promise will do it. You might also consider swap some suboptimal lands for more basics: Blighted Steppe , Tranquil Expanse , Timber Gorge , Rugged Highlands , Vivid Meadow .

Ranger's Path does seem like the better card.

I wonder if Ranger's Path would be better than Explosive Vegetation ?

So... I like Krakens and stuff, but why are you running Ranger's Path over Skyshroud Claim ? Also you are running a bunch of expensive snow lands for Into the North when Rampant Growth is the exact same card in your deck since you have no other cards that mention snow.

Hunting Wilds is strictly better than Ranger's Path . It is very affordable too.
