A card you might consider for manipulating your topdeck is Soothsaying . I've always found it to be a helpful card, in a similar vein with Sylvan Library , Mirri's Guile , and Sensei's Divining Top . Its a great mana sink that allows you to set up your turns.

Nice list! Looks like blue blood pod! Just a few thoughts:

Tutors you desperately need tutors and you have to the best two with black, Demonic Tutor which us very affordable now with the UMA reprint and Vampiric Tutor , also Diabolic Intent is perfect for this deck. Not to mention Worldly Tutor or Natural Order to find the specific creatures you need I would also suggest removing creatures like Lotleth Giant or Hatchery Spider, they're mana cost is way too high and their etbs are mediocre. Also you're running Jarad and he combos excellently with Lord of Extinction to continually throw at all your opponents, and can be reanimated over and over.

Now reanimation comes easy, so I would suggest subbing Meren of Clan Nel Toth , and ramp this damn deck needs ramp. Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Birds of Paradise , also take the Elves of Deep Shadow and Golgari Signet from your Golgari guild kit and throw them in there. Abrupt Decay is also a must as it has versatility like Assassin's Trophy but is uncounterable. Not to mention the Bane of Progress is a fantastic enchantment/artifact board wipe.

Speaking of board wipes, you need some in EDH so I would recommend either Toxic Deluge a sweeper which is more affordable or Damnation . Toxic Deluge is faster than Damnation however and gets around indestructible, run both for most optimal removal.

Cut down your creatures from 39 to 35 and I would suggest some infinite win-cons. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion fit very well in a reanimation shell (basically Mike gives Trike undying to which he can infinitely throw damage at your opponents and sac himself to reset undying and do it all over again) or even the good old Necrotic Ooze combo, which is Necrotic Ooze+ Phyrexian Devourer + Triskelion which you can set up with buried alive. Get Necrotic ooze, gets both the activated abilities of Trike and Devourer hit your opponent with 1/1 counters based on the cmc of the cards your exiling from the top of your deck. Also get Protean Hulk, the creature is busted and can fetch wincons 6 cmc or less.

Card draw is also vital, I would suggest Sylvan Library or Fecundity as one is the best card for drawing in green the other is great for graveyard strategies but it does fuel your opponent as well, so play it wisely.

Any ideas look at my meren deck, it's runs many of the same ideas with more detailed descriptions on win cons etc. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/merenating-dat-sauce/

pesmerga87 - Psychosis Crawler is defiantly a scumbag card that deserves a spot in this deck. I was first shying away from him because it's cost is high and will probably not be able to hold any instant speed reaction, but I'll give him chance!

Hidden50 - Thank you so much for commenting friend! Sylvan Library Should be in every deck that runs green, right? The only reason I am not running it is because I am trying to keep the build on the cheaper side; just for fun. Otherwise, Mana Crypt , Mana Drain , and Pact of Negation would be in there too. My expensive cards are on in another deck.

Savage Summoning is an interest idea. As of right now my playgroup doesn't run an excessive amount of Counterspell so that's not really a problem. They run a lot of single target removal and of course board wipes.

Attunement - I have never seen this card! I absolutely love it. Defiantly gonna throw it in!

Sylvan Library sounds like it would fit well into this, since it provides three card draw triggers per draw step.

If people are trying to kill it as soon as it comes down, maybe some delayed card draw effects might be nice: Ior Ruin Expedition , Attunement would make it so you can immediately get counters onto Toothy after playing it, while holding up as much mana as possible.

Savage Summoning : Would the can't be countered upside be worth it over flash? It does cost one Mana more.

An interesting interaction: I believe the parner ability allows you to search and shuffle your library when you play Pir / Toothy, even though the corresponding card will never be in your deck. If that's true, that's a small upside if you find yourself brainstorm-locked.

Your deck is kinda similar to mine. If you're going to be untapping stuff, use Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as your commanders.

The one generates you lots of mana you'll need for your stax cards, and you can use Bruse on tapping creatures like Heartless Hidetsugu which nets you 80 life if there's 4 of you. Untap him, do it again, GG.

Some cards worth considering Kiora's Follower , Seedborn Muse , Shaman of Forgotten Ways , Chromatic Lantern for mana fixing, Sensei's Divining Top and Sylvan Library are great with Kydele as well.

Thanks for taking a minute to make suggestions. I agree Celestial Archon is not good, too much cmc. Boon Satyr I'm always on the fence about, I feel like it could be useful, but it honestly never seems to make a difference in the outcome of the game. Vizier of the Menagerie I feel could be useful though, I have a lot of other cards that manipulate the top of my library, Mirri's Guile , Courser of Kruphix , Mul Daya Channelers , Sylvan Library , and if I don't like what I see there, I use a fetch land or something to shuffle the deck.

I'm def going to try and get my hands on a Serra's Sanctum , and maybe a Selvala, Heart of the Wilds though, those seem solid for sure. I'll do some searching and see what I can scrounge up for a lil more ramp. Cheers!~

Seriously. It's better than Grixis--green is better than red. It's better than Bant--black is better than white. It's better than Esper, as green is also better than white. It's better than Temur, as black is better than red. It's better than Jund, as blue is better than red. There aren't any great BUG commanders, arguably, but maybe that's just because WOTC might be taking account of the fact that the deck that can play Demonic Tutor , Sylvan Library and Force of Will in the same deck is already pretty overpowered. Muldrotha is the best BUG commander, on that note, even if he's not that great.
