Now for some effects that trigger when you draw cards, to abuse Zedruu's draw trigger.

Diviner's Wand could help you get more damage through, a surprise flying blocker, and gives you a mana sink.

Hoofprints of the Stag is a Luminarch Ascension that doesn't draw as much aggro.

Jace's Projection could get swull, but would be most useful if you have some more Jaces to use it with.

Speaking of planeswalkers, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria 's ult will allow you to seal the game with Zedruu on the board.

Nezahal, Primal Tide is good for all sorts of reasons. Big attacker/blocker, give you no max hand size, and extra draw power to boot.

Niv-Mizzet, Parun is another choice to increase draw power and spread damage around the board.

Psychic Corrosion is the balls-deep version of Jace's Erasure. It hits everyone, which can be a bad thing with mill in Commander.

The Locust God could go in the deck too. Not for the crazy infinite combos, but just to poop out flying bodies.

Well of Lost Dreams can be used in tandem with Zedruu for even more draw power.

Mind's Eye and Well of Lost Dreams for sure cause of the life gain. Might as well use it to help get what you need.

Hey! Awesome deck and video, i’m really intrigued by your approach to Oketra and I love the deck breakdown in the video!

Have you considered Sun Droplet ? Seems like it would work perfectly with the incremental life gain and would be another great way to draw cards with Dawn of Hope and Well of Lost Dreams . You do need to take damage first, so it’s a bit more limited, but should be an easy enough requirement to fulfill.

I really dig this deck and your approach to God-Eternal Oketra , and I’m looking forward to seeing how you approach other commanders in the future!

Natalbee Thank you so much for the suggestions! Howl of the Night Pack was an addition I made as a “pseudo-boardwipe” if you will, however, you are right that I don’t really have the forests to make amazing use of it, I may add back a different wipe, I’m not sure yet. And I do think that Second Harvest would have a really cool place in the deck!

Path of Discovery would be a really cool addition as well. It does feel like a better Into the Wilds in this build.

And I am really excited about Well of Lost Dreams . It’s got amazing card draw potential with Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves and can be easily pulled with Enlightened Tutor . Thanks again for the help!

Natalbee I have been trying to playtest my own build and find that I lack draw in a lot of cases, so Well of Lost Dreams makes a lot of sense, I'll see if that fits!

I also have been toying with cards like Fecundity , Dawn of Hope , and Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , as well as Inheritance if you want Fecundity all for yourself at a cost. I am going to see if some of those can fit into my build.

The draw problem in my deck is that good cards like Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Vivien's Arkbow , and Beast Whisperer (which might work well for you) only work for creature spells (I only have like 17 creature spells so much less value there).

becks16 - Thanks :D Yeah, I went more into the lifegain route after seeing the drawing power of Well of Lost Dreams haha, that card is ridiculous with Tolsimir.

Aura Shards and Mirari's Wake are definitely on my future list because they're just great cards in general, but a little pricey for me right now. Righteous Aura on the other hand is only $0.20 and cool as hell! I'm gonna playtest this deck a bit more and see if I can find a spot for it :D

Adaptive Automaton and Wilt-Leaf Liege are both good, but I think I'm all anthem-ed out :P I think I'm running 13 different boost effects? Some of them are mana-intensive, but still worthwile.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Wouldn't Extraplanar Lens help with ramping mana?

Maybe Well of Lost Dreams and Dawn of Hope can give you some extra draw.

Stonecloaker and Whitemane Lion can be cheap ways for creating 4/4 tokens and abusing your life gain etb's, coupled with Oketra's Monument they become even more effective since you will gain 2 life and 2 tokens for each cycle.

Since the deck can create a lot of tokens i also believe Phyrexian Altar could be a worthy inclusion, maybe even Ashnod's Altar to some degree.
