Thanks KibaAlpha! These are great suggestions. The reason why I don't have cards like Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, and Skullclamp in my deck is because they are expensive enough ($, not CMC) that I haven't added them to my deck. I may add them in the future, but this is still a new deck so I haven't invested much money in it.

As for your other suggestions, thank you so much! Spawning Pit, Woe Strider, Midnight Reaper,Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, etc. are very good suggestions. Thanks!

First you don’t need more than 37 lands.

You are missing the best 4 free sacrifice outlets Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Altar of Dementia and Spawning Pit.

Creature sacrifice outlets to add Viscera Seer, Woe Strider, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician.

Additional life drain cards Cruel Celebrant, Bastion of Remembrance and Vindictive Vampire.

You are lacking card draw look to add Skullclamp, Greed, Erebos, God of the Dead, Midnight Reaper and Dark Prophecy.

I’ll suggest more when I’m not at work.

This is both a call to the conversation and a shoutout to these other Winota builders! Check out:

Winota, Joiner of Forces by cotyramey for extra combat and the clever inclusion of Mob Rule! I sense a steal & swing Winota theme coming...

Winota Humans by Crivaro for the cool inclusion of all these cards I want to try now: Genesis Chamber, Spawning Pit, Anax, Hardened in the Forge, and Elemental Mastery.

Winota's Recruitment Drive by liquid_water for the inclusion of Blinkmoth Nexus, Needle Spires, Inkmoth Nexus, and Ghitu Encampment... great utility land sub-theme, very clever!

WINota by Aeroth88 for the great name, and understanding that this is exactly what Boros wanted and needed in EDH!

Beast Mode (Winota EDH) by TheCardPool for the sweet living weapon theme!

Winota's Waging Weenies by Like_a_boss for a noble attempt at cEDH Winota!

At first, I thought Winota decks would be very homogeneous, and while that's mostly true, I'm seeing a lot of clever ideas within her framework. Everyone check out their decks, and I hope all the people I tagged will join in the conversation here! Let's break Winota together friends! For the Legion!

Alright, so to make this a 7-8 I'd add in dredge cards; they fill your yard so fast. I kind of wish it gave counters to creatures as they entered not as it entered :( itd open up some really cool lines and offer a lot of good protection. Anyways, here are some ways to fill the yard.

Stinkweed Imp

Golgari Grave-Troll

Golgari Thug

Stitcher's Supplier

Altar of Dementia

Spawning Pit

Phyrexian Altar

Ashnod's Altar

As for combo pieces; a basic aristocrats strategy would be pretty easy; here are some cards if you wanted some ideas-if you want me to break down the line I will :)

Blood Artist

Zulaport Cutthroat

Carrion Feeder

Viscera Seer


Karmic Guide

Young Wolf

Vizer Of Remedies

Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit

Lesser Masticore

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Melira's Alter [sic] Pod - WIP - Help Please!

Hi there. Here are some suggestions based on your description/questions:

Altar of the Brood and Blasting Station are two win-cons for when you go infinite with Melira, a persist creature, and a sac-outlet.

Manglehorn is another good Reclamation Sage type creature.

The Great Henge and Renata, Called to the Hunt are fantastic with persist and with the high amount of creatures that you are running.

You have most of the best sac outlets, but I see that you are missing Greater Good. I've also always been a big fan of Spawning Pit.

You could also try some more card advantage and ramp through creatures. Additions to consider are Sakura-Tribe Elder, Farhaven Elf, Guardian Project, The Great Henge (again...the card is serious busted), Elvish Visionary, Skullclamp, and Beast Whisperer.

Beast Within is also a staple in mono-green.

Happy deck building!
