Tooth and Nail Discussion

Hobo, I feel like I remember you talking about the quintessential Mayael strat of cheating dudes out with cards like the ever-typical Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet? Maybe i'm confused (I've read a LOT of Mayael primers in my days). Personally, I run both because of how they simply fit in the deck's synergies. i don't run Lurking Predators, or even Defense of the Heart, at this point because they're easily removed, but i am going to be trying Hunting Grounds in the coming weeks simply because it's 2-cmc.
This subject does bring me to a question though: Is there a reliable win-con available if one were to run Defense of the Heart or Tooth and Nail entwined? What I mean is, if this were a Xenagos, God of Revels deck, I might go tutor the Kiki/Conscripts win-con, but since this is Naya and a considerably different build, is there a win-con featuring fatties? The best thing i can come up with -in my limited knowledge- is something like Ogre Battledriver+Avenger of Zendikar with T&N precombat, which isn't even a reliable win-con. I've tried tinkering around with Mayael's Aria, but for it to be a win-con you have to have something set up by your upkeep, which is a slow and vulnerable strategy.

You already have most of the budget staples but a simple, game winning combo is a traditional kiki-jiki infinite loop with either conscripts or celebrant to get either infinite combats or 3/3s. As of now the components for this combo are at around 30 dollars total.
If you think Tooth is too expensive, substitute Samut, the Tested.
Any amount of creature tutors you include in your deck will substantially increase the competitiveness. They are usually expensive.
Finally, since radha can generate resources for you in combat, employing land destruction and resource denial can be a solid strategy as well. With a Vigor spells like Wildfire and Destructive Force become advantageous mass pump spells. Boom / Bust or cycling Decree of Annihilation can strip opponents of their only mana sources leaving you with a usually insurmountable advantage.

Thank you for your suggestions! Marwyn, the Nurturer , Thada Adel, Acquisitor, and Ulvenwald Tracker will probably be good additions to the deck. Kalonian Hydra might also be good but there is always the risk of him getting kill spelled before I get a chance to swing.
The reason for Woodland Bellower is because he can tutor any small creature for me which is like 90% of my deck, he can especially tutor Fierce Empath which can tutor any of my big creatures like Craterhoof Behemoth. For Priest of Titania it ramps a lot of mana because all my mana dorks and ezuri are elfs. Phantasmal Image it just adds flexibility to the deck. Caller of the Claw is a nice way to have creatures on board just in case of a board wipe. Avenger of Zendikar is good by himself but combos really well with Craterhoof Behemoth thanks to Tooth and Nail.
Thanks once again. If you have any other tips please let me know.

This deck is great for the most part. Where I have a disagreement is in the sorcery section, while its great to have some removal, I think you can focus it a bit more and get your creatures out faster with cards like Natural Order, Tooth and Nail, Eldritch Evolution. I dont know what your budget is so I would recommend a Demonic Tutor, Sol Ring, and personally I dont like running green decks without Bane of Progress.
If you want to take a look at my pile and see where my brain is you can look at Black Panther has Landed and let me know what you think.

i basically dont understand why you dont get rid of your Reanimate Stuff. How do you fill your Graveyard ? If your Commander cant do it and if there is no Buried Alive or Entomb i dont see a Reason going in this direction ? Maybe you could explain a bit more ? You dont need to cheat Protean Hulk 2 times do you ?
I am missing Walking Ballista here for Mikaeus, together with Protean Hulk its deadly right away.
I think you cheat your Creatures by getting infinte Mana or lets say a lot of Mana .. so i would focus on this Topic instead of Graveyard Cheat. If you play Meren of Clan Nel Toth then you need and should also run a Spore Frog. If you remove the Graveyard Cheat, what makes not really sense in my opinion, you have a lot of slots free for Cards like Tooth and Nail and Summoner's Pact for example.

antipopes, yeye! I run a Goreclaw deck you can check out; we prolly have a few overlapping similarities. One fun thing I like to do is to either Defense of the Heart or Tooth and Nail --> Surrak, the Hunt Caller + Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre in the first main phase to haste Ulamog and have an Outta Nowhere Annihilator 4.

CaptainKraw thanks for stopping by. I love Tooth and Nail! It can get me my finishers like Blightsteel Colossus and Siege Behemoth or get me out of a pinch with removal like Bane of Progress and Balefire Dragon.
