Aqueous Form is strictly better than Invisibility, Shaman of Forgotten Ways or Somberwald Sage could replace Lifespring Druid, and there exists a lot of better creatures than Charging Rhino for some more upgrades.

Profet93, thanks for your help! Only 2 problems. 1, I don't want this deck to be too much more expensive than it already is, 2, there are cards that I want to keep that you suggested to keep out. eight and a half tails, for one served as my tutor able protection, and has saved my commander multiple times. Question: one of the reasons I had Mageta the Lion was because it was an instant win after the wipe and using Shaman of Forgotten Ways's ability. Do you think it is worth it? third, selvala is the little amount of politics I can afford to play, given its a Temple Bell with benefits. I'm on the fence with myojin, though. there are games I've had that have had a nesukar deck that let me draw up to a 10 card hand, then I played myojin and vomited the entire thing onto the battlefield. its really good in certain situations, I just don't know if its worth it.

how do you feel about Shaman of Forgotten Ways? This is a card I keep going back and forth on. Has his ferocious ability ever been relevant to anyone? If not is his ability to ramp worth it alone?

I have to main things I think this list could improve on.

The first thing is the lack of ramp and the second thing is the lack of a seriously good early game. And i think there are some cards that can solve one of these problems and some cards that can even solve both. Gyre Sage ramps a lot in a deck relying on heavy-hitters and can sometimes even get in itself and Shaman of Forgotten Ways pushes out your 7-drops on turn 4 while providing a one-card-lategame-kill.

Cards like Managorger Hydra and Primordial Hydra can come out on turn 3 and are serious threats just a short time later. Anafenza, the Foremost hates on some of your opponents while also riding in along the assault. Vinelasher Kudzu can even hit the battlefield on turn 2. In addition to these cards I would just throw in Tainted Strike, Rubblehulk, Temur Battle Rage and Grafted Exoskeleton to end games quicker.

These would be my suggestions to start to make the deck more of a real threat to the other players before they really can start to deploy their gameplan. :) I hope they are of some use to you. :)

Here are some suggestions: Asceticism, Vigor + Blasphemous Act (both good cards individually but as a combo are amazing), Balefire Dragon,Tooth and Nail, Green Sun's Zenith, Gilded Lotus, Drumhunter, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Fierce Empath.

Hope these help.

+1 Nice deck!

T3 win:

T1: land, Viscera Seer

T2: land, Cryptolith Rite, tap seer for ??? (needs 1drop creature? Vault Skirge? Cathedral Membrane?)

T3: land, Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit, sac Vault Skirge in Eldritch Evolution to get Murderous Redcap for infinite dmg.

So a couple things:

That's all I got.

Good luck and nice deck again!

In a big mana deck with lots of creatures, Shaman of Forgotten Ways seems hilarious, and Endless One has infinite uses. Genesis Hydra also seems fun.
