this is great, I'm so gonna make one of these, just with more clones and less of other stuff, so you are literally playing their deck with your cards, ecept for Stonehoof Chieftain which is a game ender once you have copied some huge creatures. by the way, this deck needs Alchemist's Refuge , you can replace a basic mountain for it, since the deck needs very little red. Alchemist's Refuge is a budget Vedalken Orrery which lets you cast Rite of Replication on the player's endstep right before your turn on your Biovisionary , winning you the game right there.

imSandstorm: It depends on the situation. If I have one fatty I know I could take someone out like Blightsteel Colossus in hand I'll use TnN to cheat it out. If I have nothing going on I will entwine it for the following combinations depending on the situation:

There's more combination that I've used but those above are the common ones. As far as Rhythm of the Wild goes, I'm not convinced that it is good in this deck because Xenagos already provides haste and is hard to remove. Also this deck doesn't really care if creatures get countered since I run a redundant amount of fatties.

vdiddy1 on I hope this will be good.

"Other" Section Observations:

Burgeoning good card, but you have alot of multiple lands per turn cards

Constant Mists solid

Crop Rotation Unnecessary imo

Life / Death Can only use one spell, can prob find something that is more impactful to the deck

Sensei's Divining Top Yes

Sylvan Advocate Good because it's a 2/3 for 2 mana, but only adds significant value with commitment to land creatures

Sylvan Library V good card, excels if you maintain lifegain sub-strategy

Titania, Protector of Argoth Only good if you commit to the graveyard recall sub-strategy

Traverse the Outlands fantastic, can this be turned into a win condition?

Volcanic Offering fun af, but probably better options for the card slot

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Print out Business Cards saying "GG" for when you play this

Wildfire Abso-freakin-lutely

Zuran Orb A must have if you commit to graveyard recall + lifegain sub strategies


Additional Observations:

World Breaker kinda sucks for 7 mana

Bane of Progress a conditional 6 drop is risky; amazing sideboard card in our meta

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip her -2 will trigger the legendary rule

Exsanguinate Love it.


Final Comment:

Your non-creature game is strong, but your damage output is weak and is currently the biggest flaw facing your deck. Your best bet imo is to either rip out creatures and synergize removal + damage or add in a few more big trample creatures. I think your comparative advantage lies in creatures: you'll consistently have an ungodly mana pool to take advantage of them, and you're already relying on creatures for this concept to work.

Some good creatures for this deck:

Liege of the Tangle

Oran-Rief Hydra

Charnelhoard Wurm

Blightsteel Colossus

Ghalta, Primal Hunger

Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer

Phantom Nishoba

Stonehoof Chieftain

Worldspine Wurm

I always find that my Thantis, the Warweaver deck ran into issue of not being able to play defense and my creature getting killed in combat so I did a few things to fix that. I like all the walls as a way to keep you from attacking but when you do have to attack there are a few cards that help you survive. Akroma's Memorial is amazing. Bow of Nylea usually means they don't get blocked by the bigger creatures. Dolmen Gate and Stonehoof Chieftain make them survive combat anyway. Sight of the Scalelords may also work to make your creatures stay back on defense.

As for fun cards to add, I really enjoy my Assault Suit in this deck and Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire is great removal and a fun political card.

I know you want to get attacked so you can play "traps" to stay on flavor so Nemesis Trap , Slingbow Trap , and Stone Idol Trap seem to fit. You may also think about Baloth Cage Trap , Cobra Trap and Needlebite Trap .

As an additional comment I will mention that if you need to stop getting attacked No Mercy and Dread keep people away.

I actually don't know if I prefer Dolmen Gate or Stonehoof Chieftain but in my experience this is a very fast deck so Dolmen gate is probably better. Definitely worth an include if you're going for a creature-heavy build.

Gotcha. When you said "from bulk" I thought maybe that meant cards you had laying around haha

Having 0 interaction or protection outside of creatures, you should def put in that Prowling Serpopard and Spellbreaker Behemoth . Soul of New Phyrexia protects all your creatures from a board wipe. Ruric Thar, the Unbowed punishes control players. Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip is a fantastic mana sink (as is Genesis Hydra ). Treasure Keeper and Woodland Bellower could be interesting? And Conduit of Ruin makes everything cheaper while tutoring for Decimator of the Provinces , Mockery of Nature , Nullstone Gargoyle , etc. Spearbreaker Behemoth and Stonehoof Chieftain also give some protection.

Unlife on I have too much mana, ...

Mistcutter Hydra , Craterhoof Behemoth if you have a decent amount of creatures, eldrazi titans like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , Kozilek, the Great Distortion , etc. Omnath, Locus of Mana will hold the mana as you swing, Eldrazi Conscription for a massive pump, Primordial Hydra , Stonehoof Chieftain , Tooth and Nail to tutor with.

Perhaps instead of Stonehoof Chieftain you should consider Loyal Unicorn The main difference is vigilance instead of trample, but it costs 4 less mana to cast
