I think you need a solid few ramp dorks to make this work more effectively. Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Elvish Pioneer, Sylvan Caryatid, or Joraga Treespeaker? You just dont have anything to put out early and that could be an issue.

Your best bet for a stronger mana-base is to upgrade with fetches, filters and shocks as available, and run several land ramp spells as well in the meantime (looks like you could add Rampant Growth, Nature's Lore and Farseek. Picking up a Chromatic Lantern would also be a big plus. Birds of Paradise and Sylvan Caryatid are also really helpful to color fix this deck while you look for the spendy lands.

I have a fairly high-end Atraxa deck, although it focuses more on planeswalkers, but hopefully it can give you some ideas for upgrade options. Loyalty Is Super Atraxive

Best of luck with your build.

Sylvan Caryatid and Birds of Paradise should be in here for more ramp this deck really just need to hit a bigger hexproof guy faster and load him up with enchants

Sylvan Caryatid seems like a good fit since if you get to discard it you can give soulflayer hexproof, i also run Thrun, the Last Troll in my soulflayer deck.

First and foremost. This deck is missing some of the key components that are very very neccesary for commander:

  1. Ramp

You have the Sol Ring , and thats good. And the few land fetching spells. But I reccomend getting creature ramp and at least 3 more mana rocks. Like adding in a Birds of Paradise, Sylvan Caryatid, Yavimaya Elder, and a Wood Elves would speed your game up so much, and give you chump blockers. Mana rocks are also really essential, my favorite are Gilded Lotus, Thran Dynamo, and Darksteel Ingot.

  1. Card Draw/Card Advantage

This is so important. In a deck like this, I'd automatically include Sylvan Library, Harmonize, Sensei's Divining Top, Worldly Tutor, Chord of Calling, Green Sun's Zenith, and a Tooth and Nail. Necropotence is super good too. Cards equal wins, period. That is why blue is the best color. I'd also consider cards like Soul of the Harvest and Drumhunter, just because your deck is creature based. The way I think about it, if I can't find a way to get more cards in my opening hand, I should not be keeping it.

  1. Landbase

I'm not gonna get into this, cause someone else did. Just make youre mana base faster. And play cards that cycle/fetch lands out of your library. It is card advantage for days.

  1. Removal

Play more creature piece removal spells (like Woodfall Primus , Acidic Slime , Reclamation Sage , and Shriekmaw , just because they leave you with a creature at the end of it all. That 2/1, or 2/2 deathtouch is essential for the early game. Also more instant speed removal will do you good like Hero's Downfall, Abrupt Decay, and Krosan Grip.

Sidenote: Play Eternal Witness if you are playing green. Period.

I appreciate the sideboard advice. That's the main thing I still need to work on. I really don't know what would be best for this type of deck.

I considered Sylvan Caryatid, I used to run it when I started building this deck because I had so many expensive spells. I'm thinking about Loxodon Smiter and Wilt-Leaf Liege in which case I may need more Mana. I'm not really in a position to pick up Noble Hierarch right now. The main issue I see there is that to add those guys I may need to get rid of the Assault Formation and Doran, the Siege Tower which makes Sylvan Caryatid less good.


"Next Level Abzan" looks pretty cool. I definitely like the token spamming. I could see that being a very fun deck. Thank you for opening my eyes to it.

+1 Maybe consider dropping Elvish Mystic/Sylvan Caryatid for Fertile Ground? Then you could add Freed from the Real and have another possible infinite mana (and infinite untap of all permanents) Take a look at my protoype Taptics to see how that infinite mana combo can be played out.
