@Dragaan - yeah, i got you.. mass removals typically goes through in an EDH game, especially when that's the only solution to a big threat to 2 or more players.. I haven't tried to use Sapling of Colfenor as a commander yet.. I'm guessing it will be a more agressive deck, focusing more on big creatures with 4 or more power and toughness which is higher or equal to the creature's power, while still using the treefolk tribal.. It loses a lot of possible white mass removals, but gains more space for targeted removals.. It could be centered on getting sapling of colfenor unblockable as well.. In my opinion, Doran has more options on the theme of the deck (lifegain, aggro, control, defense, mass removals) but Sapling of Colfenor has it's uses as a commander. Plus it has indestructible, which is hard to remove from your board..

I was about to say how Winds exiles as well... but I just noticed you had more exile/bottom sweepers than just terminus. I guess I tend to evaluate cards too much from a competitive modern/standard viewpoint, cause you're right - it does seem extremely lackluster when u have access to, and an easy time casting, any big removal in the game. I guess the target:2/all:6 option isn't much of a bonus in EDH when compared to other "actual" 6cmc sweepers.

I had another question for you, though. Have you ever tried playing Sapling of Colfenor as a commander for the treefolk deck? If so, which deck do you think is more fun?

I like Sapling of Colfenor it can be built as a creature only deck to take full advantage of the ability and I doubt you will see one often

I think we're more or less agreeing on the potential nuances of multicolor. My basic position is that multicolors can be defined just as well as single colors, and as more than the sum of their parent colors.

Helios is white. Elesh Norn is white. Ajani is white. They're all white, but they're the tortilla, sandwich bread, and pita of white. (Your choice for which one's which.) White includes fascism, military skill, order, and unity, but Ajani isn't exactly fascist, and Helios is more interested in making his champion than unifying everyone. I think we can agree on this.

All the colors, and their subsequent combinations, have a huge variety of potential nuances, but they're all distinct from each other, even between different amounts of coloredness. I don't see green/black as green + black, I see it as a unique collection of ideals, goals, beliefs, whatever I said up above.

Are all of these essentially green/black, as cards or characters?

Rhys the Exiled

Sapling of Colfenor

Nath of the Gilt-Leaf

Doran, the Siege Tower

I believe the character of Doran is unique in outlook from the others, and Rhys is green, with a black motivation, as well-represented by the cards.

I would cut a board wipe, maybe two. I'd also drop a land. Abzan Banner is a strictly worse Commander's Sphere . Solidarity is the one combat trick you are missing. I really don't Huatli is even worth it in here to be honest, shes pretty underwhelming. I think Darksteel Plate would be nice if you can get it, protecting Doran is key and its better than hyena umbra. I also love Read the Bones and Snuff Out in most black decks. Sylvan Reclamation is also really strong. I'd run that or Return to Dust . Crod would recommend Crush Contraband over return but I prefer the former.

As for creatures

I think Sapling of Colfenor would be good. Pontiff of Blight seems kinda fun. Karametra, God of Harvests . Oblivion Sower is something a little unconventional that I like, and World Breaker could also be worth a shot.

Shock lands are cheap right now, I'd try to grab an Overgrown Tomb and a Temple Garden at $5.. Llanowar Wastes is also only like a buck.

Cut Abzan Charm Grim Contest Magnigoth Treefolk and Dauntless Dourbark theyre bad

Sapling of Colfenor is a decent goodstuff commander. Helps keep your hand full of creatures, indestructible means she's harder to remove, and has a pretty straightforward strategy of just attacking ftw

Perhaps you are familiar with this cards but i think they might be worth a try: Heartwood Storyteller, Kalonian Twingrove, and Sapling of Colfenor

I've been thinking for a long time about building a Casual deck along these lines. I like it. Never considered how good Ornithopter would be for this. Good call.
If you were running white, Doran, the Siege Tower and Indomitable Ancients would be ideal.
