i would also consider Thelonite Hermit instead of Deranged Hermit or maybe find space for them both, plus chuck in a Rhonas the Indomitable, coz he's cool

nice cube tho, i'm planning on expanding my 360 into something similar :)

Hmm... For example maybe Orochi Hatchery (quite expensive to use), Wistful Selkie and Thelonite Hermit? Also I can suggest to you: Hornet Queen and Hornet Nest.

Hey!

Commander is certainly my favorite format!! I would be happy to give ya a few pointers for what it's worth!

One thing that I noticed off the bat is that you have lots of tapped lands! I think you will find that very annoying to you and even that you don't need quite so many dual lands in the deck. I would take out Inspiring Vantage and in stead put in Clifftop Retreat. As well, I think Hanweir Battlements does nothing for you but slow you down since your commander already gives haste. However, if you run Hanweir Garrison (which I think you should) then it might be worth leaving in!

Myriad Landscape, Needle Spires, Rugged Highlands, Scattered Groves, Sheltered Thicket, Blossoming Sands, Sunscorched Desert, Teetering Peaks and Wind-Scarred Crag could be taken out, I would throw in some more basic lands unless you feel like dropping a lot of money on a deck and get some expensive but good dual lands which don't enter tapped... but I don't think you will need those honestly.

I feel like currently the deck is all over the place! It needs a little focusing to where you want to go with this. Commander is much more fun when you focus on getting out fun combos or cards that pair well together!

I think what i'll do is tell you about some cards you don't need in here and then some cards that you should absolutely put in here, and then some directions you might want to go towards with the deck!

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is a good card, but you are running too many non creature cards! He will hurt ya! (i built a commander deck with this guy as the commander. If you want to use him still, you can check out that deck for inspiration). Stop Hitting Yourself!

Zendikar Incarnate , Omnath, Locus of Rage and Mina and Denn, Wildborn are better for landfall decks, and won't be as much use outside of it. By the time you have 4 mana, you typically won't have more than one land card in hand at a time anyways, and if you just want the trample ability, there are much better cards out there for ya!

You can find better cards than Sylvan Reclamation for removal, depending on what you decide to do with the deck!

Wilderness Elemental is not particularly great.

Radha, Heir to Keld is not bad, but the two red mana empties from your mana pool after your combat phase ends. if you want to go for mana ramp and something similar, might i suggest Savage Ventmaw or Skyshroud Elf? Those two are similar but in different ways. The nice thing about skyshroud is that he can tap for green, red or white (since he taps for green and the second ability would allow you to use that green mana to turn it either red or white) and you can use it to filter your mana to the color you want (besides green). the mana produced by Savage Ventmaw doesn't deplete between phases.

Oversoul of Dusk while hybrid mana, is harder to cast in your 3 color deck and the card itself isn't necessarily that great. Green and white are very common colors in commander.Now Rubblebelt Raiders on the other hand.. might be worth it, and less mana intensive!

Thelonite Hermit is not super great since you're not creating tons of saproling tokens. I don't even really run it in my Tana, the Bloodsower commander deck.

Odric, Lunarch Marshal gives all your creatures double strike and vigilance when you have your commander out.

Bastion Protector aslo pairs well with Odric.. all creatures you control get indestructible.

Odric, Master Tactician is also good for you no matter what direction you decide to go with the deck!Content goes here

I see this really going anywhere. Your commander is quite flexible!

  1. You could find some way to play with your commander's untap ability (with things like Intrepid Hero or Heartless Hidetsugu and other cool creature tap abilities). you could use Illusionist's Bracers to copy the untap effect when you pay the mana cost. Heck, you could untap her with that free untap. Creatures with tap abilities can tap the same turn they come out as long as you control your commander!
  2. You could build a token deck featuring things with "devour" creatures, Anointed Procession and Parallel Lives.
  3. you could focus on large creatures that you can cast to smash into opponents the same turn they come out.

That's about all I have for now.. decide what you want to do to focus the deck and I will be looking to give you ideas wherever you decide to go with this!

+1 I like tokens and Naya.

But I don't really like Thelonite HermitI like Angel of Invention in this kind of deck.

I think Stonehoof Chieftain is a bit too much, I don't really think that the trample will be usefull. I think, a simple Overrun can be more effective. Or Akroma's Memorial or Mirror Entity if you want a kill.

Mirrorworks can be fun with ETB.

Maybe I will have more ideas later

lonker there are a few saproling lord type cards out there: Nemata, Grove Guardian, Thelonite Hermit, and Verdeloth the Ancient.

Ok, I see a few ways this could turn into a solid teir 2.5 modern deck: a saproling/fungus or eldrazi(Kozilek's Predator/Nest Invader swarm running stuff like Obelisk of Urd,

A Cryptolith Rite/Life and Limb/Utopia Mycon/Psychotrope Thallid/Vitaspore Thallid type 'I play my library through mana/sacrifice combo shenanigains,

A Bloodbriar/Tukatongue Thallid/Rot Shambler/Emrakul's Evangel beatdown/sacrifice/bulk up build with a bunch of token producing critters, sac outlets, and stuff that gets bigger when you sac stuff.

Sakura-Tribe Elder and Utopia Mycon could also assist a ramp style sacrifice deck.

Theres also the possibility of an Eldritch Evolution/emerge combo deck running creatures like Root-Kin Ally/Tangle Golem for a cheap Decimator of the Provinces Mockery of Nature and convoke token generators like Scatter the Seeds or similar.

A 'stall for big spells' is also a thing- Thelonite Hermit doesn't use the stack for morph, so running a control setup aiming to get him morphed on the battlefield with Aspect of Mongoose on him is possible.

Fog/Blunt the Assault/Brindle Boar/Gristleback etc to stall to midgame then cast some high value eldrazi or beating down with Moldgraf Scavenger/Undergrowth Scavenger and similar delirum will work. Harrow will help a lot with this.

Splashing blue could allow for Prophet of Kruphix shenanigans, and that blue/green return to hand emerge eldrazi, along with combo options.

Splashing black could also allow Distended Mindbender and Nezumi Bone-Reader for hand control.

If you decide the archetype you want to play (aggro, midrange, control) I'll try to come up with cards to help support it. Building something strong normally involves emphasising its strengths as much as possible- meaning some cards get silly expensive, but cheaper cards with synergy to almost match them exist. Good luck and happy brewing.
