Latest Decks as Commander
Rosheen Meanderer Discussion

Just going by Scryfall (even going as deep as <0.90c in terms of value rather than the full dollar) there are quite a few that spring up that I'd be interested in seeing made on such an extreme budget:
Rashmi, Eternities Crafter -- Simic Control/Tempo is something I'd be super interested to see on a budget, not gonna lie.
Tasigur, the Golden Fang -- Recursive politics on a budget?
Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter -- Only because I have a budget plan for her myself, I'd be interested in seeing another take on it!
Darigaaz Reincarnated -- This is more of a pet idea for me, I love Darigaaz.
Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro -- If you're looking for a tribal commander, Shamans are a very unique tribe.
Those are just some that spring to mind for me looking over the list, whether you run with any of them or not I hope you enjoy the process of budgeteering! I know I do whenever I get the itch!

I'm quite excited to discover this list as my own hydra tribal deck is built around Gargos, Vicious Watcher but I've been wanting to transition my hydra tribal to a different commander so that I an make Gargos into a voltron deck. I considered Zaxara, the Exemplary but it didn't seem quite right, but Animar looks like an exciting fit because he deals with counters and allows access to some hydra cards that monogreen doesn't get, such as Hydroid Krasis, Apocalypse Hydra, Savageborn Hydra, and Rosheen Meanderer. How has this deck been performing for you so far? Can you get lots of big creatures loaded up with counters fairly reliably/efficiently most of the time?

Hydras and x-spells have always been an interest of mine, but I never truly found the correct commander - trying decks such as Kenrith, the Returned King and Rosheen Meanderer. Many of these cards can be seen as just "fun" cards, but, as with everyone, take with a grain of salt!
Kruphix, God of Horizons or Doubling Cube might be worth it. Also, mana doublers, such as Mana Reflection or Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger might be worth the slot. Animist's Awakening is interesting and on the x-spell theme.
Mind Grind for another win-con.
You could also include the Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth / Cabal Coffers package along with cards like Vesuva and Thespian's Stage for even bigger mana. Then you could include fetches for these cards, such as Tempt with Discovery, Hour of Promise, and Expedition Map, although sort of slow.
I don't really like Finale of Devastation or Green Sun's Zenith for Hydras, because whatever creature you get generally just dies when it enters the battlefield. The Talismans are cool, but pure, land-based ramp might be worth more in the long run, especially if you decide to add the cheaper mana doublers. The land base might be a bit overkill for a three color deck with access to green. In my experience, I can often get away with running more basics in sultai, but if it works, it works. Maybe Chromatic Lantern would help?
These are just my quick thoughts. Kind of sad that this commander doesn't have red. I haven't reviewed your recent edits, but I would like to hear more about what you are thinking.

I haven't toyed with all the ones you mentioned so I'll just touch on the ones I have.
Siona, Captain of the Pyleas those are certainly effective ways to play the deck. Outside of the combos you'll want a nice mix of auras that go on your stuff and creatures to put them on. Probably more auras than creatures since you can always put things on her and her tokens. Great enchantress deck.
Rosheen Meanderer I think is better with instants and sorceries that have in the cost. Creatures too but I'd generally aim to have all the mana production of all the times and then around 10 finishers.
The Mimeoplasm makes an amazing mill deck. I went for milling everyone at the table and then had things like Bloodchief Ascension to lay on the hurt when someone gets hit with Traumatize. Don't think of using mill as a way to win think of it as a way to attain resources that allow you to win. Some of your finishers there should be Rise of the Dark Realms and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. If you happen to mill someone out all the better.

I've been challenged by my friends to build a green deck. One thing you need to know about me to understand my struggle is, in 20 years of playing mtg I'VE NEVER PLAYED GREEN ONCE.
So I went on EDHREC and checked all the general with green in their color identity and I narrowed it down to a big 8 cards. I need help understanding them better and to know if my strategies are viable for them or if there's a better one I could use instead.
Yisan, the Wanderer Bard Basically using my deck as a toolbox with a bunch of ETB and taping/untaping shenanigans with a small stax engine from artifacts
Gargos, Vicious Watcher Tribal hydras.
Rosheen Meanderer Tribal hydras and other X cards (not sure which one is better for tribal hydras between her and Gargos).
Siona, Captain of the Pyleas: Shielded by Faith + Siona, Captain of the Pyleas to create Infinite tokens then use them with Altar of Dementia to mill everyone to death or having Aetherflux Reservoir and any Soul Warden ability to gun down everyone.
6 Animar, Soul of Elements Eldrazi tribal. Also thinking about Protein Flash.
7.Yasova Dragonclaw Stealing stuff + pod effects or other sacrifices effect to kill the stuff I stole.
8.The First Sliver Sliver tribal (yeah I know you didn't see that coming, what a shock).
Let me know what you guys think might about these generals and if my strategies are viable and which one would be better.
budget isn't an issue and power level is semi-competitive (not casual but the decks won't be tuned to the most powerful versions).

I mean, if you're going to bother building 5-color hydras, Progenitus is the commander. Without Rosheen Meanderer or Gargos, Vicious Watcher in the command zone, you'll want to run a base-green, land-based ramp package. You'll also want Chromatic Lantern and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove . The deck will mostly just be a slow, durdly deck without a whole lot of synergy beyond +1/+1 counters. Rosheen Meanderer is still the way to go if you want red in your hydra deck. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice would be a good counter commander, if you're okay with losing Apocalypse Hydra , Savageborn Hydra , Ulasht, the Hate Seed , Gyrus, Waker of Corpses , and Progenitus . Polukranos, Unchained could also fit that role, although at that point, you might as well just build Gargos.

Though to be frank, I think you’re shouting yourself in the foot by going 5 color. At best, maybe a Temur color deck would suffice enough.
