Sigarda, Host of Herons Discussion

If you're not running a humans deck, why not Sigarda, Host of Herons for the commander, as she is naturally hexproof?

lots of humans, maybe you should streamline it to that. I enjoy the tribals, and though people say Coat of Arms is overdone in our group I disagree. 1 of never hurt anything, so I would put that in there. Get rid of the treefolk, it doesnt fit. I like the angel for its ETB, but its not a human, and thats about all i like. If youre going to go big with an angel, get something that really fucks your opponents.
I mean, you can get Platinum Angel for one more and not lose the game. Advanced search for white or green angels CMC 6 and see whats out there, or scrap it and get heavy with human buffs. Sigarda, Heron's Grace and my favorite eldrazi hoser Sigarda, Host of Herons should be in consideration.
Heroic Intervention is a new favorite of mine, and is a must for any green deck IMO, especially with all the land destruct going around, your opponent will learn his lesson quickly. Thats what i see at first anyways.

Applesauce_Magician, Thank you very much !!! If you want to save a little you can use basic land instead of Temple Garden, Sunpetal Grove and Temple of Plenty, try to use 12x Forest and 8x Plains. Sigarda, Host of Herons and Dragonlord Dromoka can be replaced as well for something of your choise hahaha

What berryjon says is true. Commander operates under a few different rules as far as deck construction goes. As you already know, 100 cards to a deck, no duplicates except basic lands, etc. But probably the biggest is that no cards or symbols can be included that aren't in the commander's color identity. Color identity is determined in the casting cost, and by abilities on the card.
Omnath is green, and nothing else. So you could only include mono-green cards in his deck. (Dual color cards, and even cards with combi () mana symbols can not be included)
Now, color identity can be a bit confusing, as it's not just the casting cost. Lets look at Alesha, Who Smiles at Death. Her casting cost is red. But as you can see she has in her abilities. So her color identity is . If you run her as a commander, all of those colors could be included in the deck. Likewise, as all of those colors are in her identity, if she were not the commander, she could not be used in a mono-red deck.
Anyhow, sorry for the detailed explanation. Hope it was helpful.
(P.S. I would suggest possibly Sigarda, Host of Herons as a good commander)

Honestly I think your deck looks pretty good. I am on the Grim Flayer version personally but Dark Confidant is the next best thing. The only thing I can recommend is try only 2 Abrupt Decays. That card is just isnt the best right now, at both my scg open and a couple IQs I went to recently it was almost the worst card in my deck. Collective Brutality has been fantastic though for me the only bad matchup being bant eldrazi and it can even do things in that match up so maybe switch one for one. Sigarda, Host of Herons is sweet but I dont think it is needed personally especially if you play confidant. I also would only play Creeping Corrosion if you expect lantern and affinity the card is a little narrow and I think you are fine against them already so if you wanna add one of these maybe board cards then drop that too. Also let me know how finks has been for you as I am legitimately curious!
As far as your maybeboard cards. Ok, definitely not another Abrupt Decay as mentioned before.
Anafenza is fine but I dont think its very needed especially if you play kalitas although it is a bit faster than him. You can probably play her if you expect a lot of dredge and death's shadow but other than that shes usually just kind of a dude.
A second explosives is kind of iffy, I definitely like one and a second one isnt horrible it really depends on what you play against at your tournaments. The card is great against affinity, lantern, blood moon decks, and has some splash damage against jund, abzan, infect, death's shadow etc. So it might just be a personal preference thing its either great or mediocre depending on the match up.
Garruk is cool but basically only in the midrange grind mirrors so meh.
Liliana, the Last Hope has been pretty solid for me. She is basically only good in the grindy mirrors but has some good splash damage on the play against delver decks, death's shadow, and living end which you can take that as you will. I have only played with her a little but she did win me a game once so I have been happy with her.
Obstinate Baloth is just not really needed imo only good against abzan and jund.
Renegade Rallier I actually tested out a while back when he first came out and it is broken on turn 3 after they kill your 2 drop but you need a lot of fetches to make it work so you can try it but I dont think you need it.
Seal of Primordium is just not that needed.
Thalia I have never played with, it seems a little slow but you are welcome to try her out.
Thrun is kind of meh its just basically the same thing as baloth.
Wilt-Leaf Liege definitely is not needed as it doesnt really fit the deck.
Anyway abzan is my main deck in modern and I would love to talk about it any time so if you have any other questions or statements let me know!

I feel like Sigarda, Host of Herons deserves a spot on this list.
Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Surrak Dragonclaw, Teeka's Dragon, Wurmcoil Engine, Two-Headed Dragon, Dragonlord Dromoka, Atarka, World Render, Dragonlord Silumgar, Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund, Ojutai, Soul of Winter, Silumgar, the Drifting Death, Uril, the Miststalker, Anya, Merciless Angel, Archangel Avacyn Flip, Archangel of Thune, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Empyrial Archangel, Lightning Angel, Razia, Boros Archangel, Stoic Angel, Sublime Archangel, Glissa, the Traitor, Vault of the Archangel, Griselbrand, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Aurelia, the Warleader all have that same Akroma-like feel to me, but some of them technically don't fit one or more conditions of big and 3+ static abilities.
