Kinetik615, Thank you for the kind words and the recommendations. I added Etali, Primal Storm & Lurking Predators. Dropped Garruk, Caller of Beasts & Soul Swallower.

Here are a few things. You're mainly focusing on wanting to put stuff in graveyards, then onto the battlefield. This means you could add cards like:

  • Liliana Vess Her ultimate ability looks like what you're trying to achieve.

  • Soul Swallower Is a great card for this type of deck. You should look at cards with delirium and maybe build a deck around that because green and black are both really good at that. Undying too.

  • Remove Aggressive Mammoth. It's a good card but all your creatures are pretty small and you're not focusing on putting big overwhelming creatures, but more on destroying them.

I'm not very good with feedback so take this with a grain of salt but if you want a suggestion its this: When you're building a deck, you're usually focusing it around an idea (in this case it's an undergrowth deck) but you want to make sure every card is somewhat going to help you achieve the goal of that type of deck. What I would do in your position is look at other green and/or black undergrowth decks online and take the best cards from all of them.

What's important when you have an undergrowth deck is that you don't end up killing you main deck pieces and then you can't do anything about it. Looking at how other people deal with this might help you out.

Remember: I would look at cards with Undying and Delirium.

I appreciate the comments and I think there are some great suggestions as well. I think people are focusing way too much on Delirium. It's literally on 1 card and the card is still good without it. Now I plan to make a Delirium deck with Moldgraf Scavenger and Soul Swallower at a later time. (I'd love some help when I do.) however the reason behind this deck is I saw Old-Growth Dryads and Gnarlwood Dryad and said I want to build a deck around those 2 cards.

Thrun, the Last Troll is an awesome card. I didn't throw him in for budget reasons initially but I already own one so I'll add in him to the SB soon as I get a free slot. I've been testing out some of the new cards to see how they stand up.

Picklez, the aim of the deck is to swing hard in the early game. You want to win before most other decks stabilize. The late game is left to Predator Ooze, which beyond Lilly and a perfectly timed Dismember most decks can't answer. Wolfbriar Elemental and Permeating Mass are also end game tools against midrange and Control. I had Leatherback Baloth and Courser of Kruphix in here initially to play the midrange game but after testing the deck the strictly aggro tools worked far better.

So I think Chaostrash that I like the Progenitor Mimic idea more than the Momir Vig, Simic Visionary because I do think that a more finalized version of this deck looks like me putting down, let's say, a Soul Swallower where I'm not just populating a token, but also +1/+1 counters on said token. However, if I were to include Momir Vig I believe it would be in a more creature heavy deck, which could be of the same nature. However, I would also guess that I would need to reconfigure my deck towards that goal, which would be an entirely different commander deck. I would think that a game of Momir Vig, Simic Visionary versus Rashmi, Eternities Crafter would be interesting because you could see entirely similar play styles with the only difference being that Momir would be more creature heavy. That said I am going to put him on the maybe board in case I decide to go creature heavy, which could be my entire sideboard depending which kind of aggro I wish to be.

Ishkanah, Grafwidow is a big body that scares people right away but without other spiders she isnt' as tough as one might think. It's really how you feel your deck should run. If you feel she improves your deck keep her in. I do agree that Soul Swallower is a good addition. If they aren't running removal he gets big really fast.

Ishkanah, Grafwidow to me really stepped things up to me but you are totally right about the spider tribal part. I might take out a few mana babies to add in Soul Swallower and Inexorable Blob
