My new sermon on the mount has been Godo, Bandit Warlord + Helm of the Host= Infinite combat steps. Not your style? I get it... on with the show.

Not what you're looking for? You Need draw or ways to exploit Hydra baby. Ashnod's Altar + Ivy Lane Denizen = infinite colorless and creatures ETB (+Hardened Scales or Panharmonicon= Infinite Hydra Or Warstorm Surge which would be better as Impact Tremors will win you the game!) That all seems like a good addition as does Rishkar's Expertise with your curve. You've got a ton of fatties... maybe a Selvala, Heart of the Wilds? Draw and Ramp! (And @ $20, it's not gonna get any cheaper any time soon)

More Token poppers, IMO. You wanna get big and strong, don't you? An old classic is Snake Basket, but one that I'm recently loving is Tempt with Vengeance.

More Cheating? Quicksilver Amulet and Belbe's Portal naming... Hydras? Oh and you don't have Hooded Hydra--The hydra of adding tokens to your commander! I like Fresh Meat as an Anti-board wipe card.

I'm all-in on your use of Enrage as a mechanic! (That'll set you apart from your boring counterparts). Ripjaw Raptor and Silverclad Ferocidons (What's a Ferocidon? sounds angry) are both AWESOME adds to this meta.

Keep fixing and fiddling but keep your goal in mind: Win by... Big plays and Cheat things out with strong ramp to support.

Watch out for Red/Green's Cryptonite: Lack of draw and Board Bounces and Wipes.

You do know not all decks are built around attacking with a few creatures, right? Some get a ton of counters, or mill you to death, or other win cons. This is very slow since all are expensive and some decks all these cost 3 it'll take forever to catch up and probably won't. Wouldn't suggest running this deck. Your deck literally loses any chance of winning to a Shatter and any dumb card to destroy enchantments. Example of a deck that this deck idea won't hurt at all is my Artifact Deck. Yes you have some counter spells but those only go so far. All I need is Snake Basket + Coat of Arms + any mana ramp or Urza Tron and your deck doesn't have a chance. Not a viable strategy since it's so slow and no win con.

Oh snap I forgot Orochi Hatchery so had to add that lol. I cut Pia and Kiran. I think I have to keep Snake Basket though, it is decent early game because I can throw it out and let it sit around until ready to activate.

I also cut Chain Reaction although I feel like that's not a good idea. I will sideboard it for now.

Down to 101... the hardest cut!

Orochi Hatchery should give you repeatable X token generation, providing some board wipe resistance and efficiency over Snake Basket, so I'd probably take out the basket for the hatchery late game, and early game you don't really want the basket either. There are also a LOT of 4 drops in the deck already. That said, the basket could be useful I would just run hatchery over it. Might also want to cut Kozilek's Predator.

Could you guys explain why you would cut Snake Basket? It just seems like one of the more efficient token makers to me. 10 mana 10 tokens and a bunch of ways to abuse them are in there.

I'm not sure about your fast tokens from Dragon Fodder, Hordeling Outburst, Krenko's Command, and Saproling Migration. They are usually too low impact to matter in most decks but here they potentially get you a decent amount of mana accel.

One Dozen Eyes, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, and Spore Swarm are what I would definitely remove.

I'm not convinced on Siege-Gang Commander in this deck since your tokens come in a verity of forms he may not do very much. I think Purphoros, God of the Forge or Goblin Bombardment might be better options.

Hey, WestHo. Hmm, it is a decent WinCon, but it's ultimately a more expensive Snake Basket. As 6 drops go, the only one I have is Descent of the Dragons which replaces heavy threats and my possible 1/1 tokens for 4/4 flyers, and it's difficult to add more expensive cards, because the way this deck plays, fast and fast. What card would you replace to put in for Myr Incubator?
