Thanks for the comments everyone.

Maybe I'll add a tutor later on, but so far my list still has 1 card too much, so I'll first focus on finding what to cut.

Mizzazzi Regarding switching Sylvok Explorer for Sylvan Caryatid, I don't own Sylvan Caryatid, I do have Beastcaller Savant, but that's only mana for creatures... do you think I should replace one with the other? (with 30 creatures atm it should still prove pretty usefull)Or is Sylvok Explorer the card I should cut? I also own Elvish Mystic, Zhur-Taa Druid and Radha, Heir to Keld

+1 for the good Idea! Id honestly Have to say that not only do I agree with most everything said above, Maybe work with some more tutors to get creatures and even enchantments you might need also while the only card I think needs to be cut or more like replaced is Conqueror's Flail as it the same as Grand Abolisher who is recurable with Alesha yes the boost in p/t is good but it caps at 4 since you run a 4 color deck so eh. Aura Shards might also have a spot here as well as cutting Sylvok Explorer for Sylvan Caryatid which is stictly better and dosent restrict you like the Explorer does

I have taken out:

Oath of Gideon because I'm not playing Ally tribal and only have 4 planeswalkers, of the Oaths in the deck it seemed much less usefull than the others.

Putrefy is a good removal spell, but I think I still have enough removal in the deck even after removing it. The reason I cut this one is that except for Beast Within, which is stronger, all other removal can be tutored by Sunforger

I also removed Vizkopa Guildmage, I love that card but it doesn't do much for the deck... I needed to cut some more cards so it had to go.

I still need to cut one more card, I'm hesitating to cut Call the Gatewatch or Sylvok Explorer. Let me know what you think! Obviously you can also point out another card that you feel shouldn't be in the deck or tell me to lower my land count.

Birds of Paradise over Quirion Explorer or Sylvok Explorer. heck even a Gemhide Sliver or Manaweft Sliver would be better since they can tap for any color. Sylvan Caryatid as well

Genesis Hydra would be fun. as would Genesis Wave

im not sold on Silent Sentinel unless you go harder into an enchantment subtheme. the gods being indestuctible wont die. they may get exiled but are less likely to end up in the graveyard. if you added in more stuff like Seal of Doom\Seal of Cleansing or Khalni Heart Expedition you could get use out of recurring them. plus more enchantments mean you could justify cards like Mesa Enchantress and Verduran Enchantress to supplement the eidolon.

more enchatments make Doomwake Giant insane. wipe your opponents board and draw a bunch of cards just for playing enchantment spells

Some cards I would look at cutting; Wilderness Elemental, Wight of Precinct Six, Thelonite Hermit, Selesnya Guildmage, Primeval Protector and Sylvok Explorer could be switched out for Birds of Paradise and Sylvan Caryatid, Gaea's Revenge is super expensive in an otherwise inexpensive agro deck, Evolutionary Escalation could be switched out for Gratuitous Violence... Just a few choices. Athreos, God of Passage and Heliod, God of the Sun are insane with Saskia and Iroas, God of Victory. My Saskia Decks are here- I'd love some feedback too Unstoppable Warrior Tribal Input Welcome!, and United and Unyielding Deck

If you go with Impact Tremors I would suggest Raid Bombardment over it because while it is more expensive it triggers more often with your tokens.

-Pathbreaker Ibex
+Blinding Angel
Reason: Pathbreaker could buff your things into blockable territory.

-Xenagos, God of Revels
+Akki Underminer or +Life and Limb
Reason: Xenagos is an awesome card but he could bump a card into blockable territory or be used on a sapro for an exciting +1/+1. I am actually liking underminer less everytime I think of him. 1/1 will die to a stiff breeze and sacrificing a permanent is nothing in late game EDH or against a token deck. I suggest Life and Limb instead to follow your saproling theme and to grant you some massive ramp.

-Sylvok Explorer
+Dawning Purist
Reason: You have a lot of mana ramp and gain more if you use Life and Limb so I'd opt to remove Sylvok as it is only a 1/1 and doesn't generate useful colors unless you are playing against an overlapping deck.

Avenger of Zendikar - might be another one to consider if you are looking for late game value.. Not sure what I'd change for him though.
