Wild Beastmaster Discussion

You could very well turn this build into a Collected Company build to cheat out both Champion of Lambholt and Wild Beastmaster. You could even use Chord of Calling to do the same (slightly). Nice build.

Play Cultivator of Blades as another Wild Beastmaster that triggers Ezuri three times making servos. Try Spawnwrite as a great trampler that can trigger Ezuri exponentially with his copies of copies. My Ezuri, CoP deck, is very quick and I run a "Commander Protection Package" with more Plaxmanta-like creatures creatures such as Quickling and Void Grafter, as well as morph creatures like Stratus Dancer and Willbender and shroud granters like Hisoka's Guard and Sylvan Safekeeper and Heroic Intervention, which is a great spell that counters a board wipe for just you. My curve is very low and if I can get Ezuri in play and untap, the whole table is in trouble unless they work together to kill me. Oh, try Foundry of the Consuls or Spawning Bed instead of Faerie Conclave to get big triggers on Ezuri and more creatures to grow with counters (I play both). Oh, if you can't get a Doubling Season try Inexorable Tide in it's place. If you play enough "proliferate," add Skyship Plunderer and the depletion lands from Marcadian Masques Hickory Woodlot and Saprazzan Skerry. Anyway, good luck. Swell the Host is one of the better pre-constructs to enhance. It can be enhanced pretty cheaply.

Phantom Nantuko, Managorger Hydra, Cultivator of Blades, Wild Beastmaster, Khalni Garden, Asceticism, Rishkar's Expertise, Tempt with Discovery, Inspiring Call, Hooded Hydra, Kalonian Hydra, Eldritch Evolution, Spawnwrithe, Overwhelming Stampede, and Mwonvuli Beast Tracker are my suggestions.

@HaunterHunter - Let's talk.
The double mana granted from Zendikar Resurgent would be great... if I had the double mana to cast itself. At a whopping seven mana, I really don't need my lands to tap for double. There are also better sources of card draw. It's win-more, so that's a no.
Forgotten Ancient is actually just a sponge for hate... It came with the pre-constructed deck, but I took it out because it would instantly be targeted, never reaching its potential.
the problem with Plaxcaster Frogling is that it gives shroud. That means that, if one of my creatures is targeted in my first main phase and I use pay the 2 to grant shroud, that creature can not be targeted by Ezuri this turn. It's a weakness that could be exploited by my opponents, and I can't have that. It's the same reason I won't include Kira, Great Glass-Spinner.
Bane of Progress hits the board as a 2/2, so it would trigger Ezuri. However, I cannot run this. There are too many artifacts that I use and would rather not have destroyed. Also, it doesn't do anything with the counters. The trained eye will see that most of my creatures don't just have counters. They do something with them.
I think you may have misused the term "better". In Magic, saying something is better (implying that it is strictly better) means that it is in every way superior. That cannot be said with Krosan Grip and Nature's Claim. Split second is a nice ability to have, but you know what else is nice? Leaving one mana open as I pass the turn, then surprising my opponent with removal on his turn. Krosan grip came with the pre-con, and I replaced it for a reason.
Verdant Confluence is good, but 6 mana is demanding.
Loaming Shaman is amazing, actually. It has won many games for me. Does it trigger Ezuri? no, and I wish it did. But getting my entire graveyard back is nothing to sneeze at. Contrary to your comment, he is honestly great, and that's why he's in.
I wouldn't say that Walking Ballista is better than Triskelion. Lets say you pay 6 for ballista; the same cost as triskelion. It would come in with the same number of counters, but with 1 less power and 1 less toughness. Also, I can remove all counters from triskelion and have it survive; the same cannot be said for ballista. It does have the ability to scale, which is handy. It's a good card, to be sure, and maybe even one I would include. But, again, I disagree with your assessment of "better".
Don't fool yourself: Mwonvuli Beast Tracker (I can't even tell you how many times I spelled that incorrectly) is not Worldly Tutor. It's on a stick, so i'll excuse the higher mana cost. However, it cannot search for creatures such as Sage of Hours, Fathom Mage, Triskelion, Wild Beastmaster, Champion of Lambholt... the list continues. Never underestimate versatility and flexibility in Commander, my good man.
Thanks for your thoughts!

@xmistfitxzviprx - Avatar of the Resolute is decent. However, he is only as good as the number of creatures i have with counters on them. Usually, that number is relatively low. I tend to focus on specific creatures rather than giving everyone counters. Wild Beastmaster would be good, though... gotta think of what to cut.
@JulesVernes - Borrow to your heart's content! I'm glad you enjoy the build. After having some time away from it, myself, I have noticed a few things that could be improved. Your suggestion to replace Phyrexian Swarmlord with Mycoloth is a sound one. While infecters are good, Swarmlord's token production is wholly dependent on me hitting the opponent with a poison counter. Mycoloth will produce tokens regardless. Good call!
@HaunterHunter - Nice list of suggestions! Lets go through them.- Phantom Nantuko is almost strictly better than Undergrowth Champion. It's also a card i'd not seen before. You've convinced me on this one.
I like Hooded Hydra a little better than Hangarback Walker for this build, as it could enter as an Ezuri trigger if it's morphed, and then get big. Both are good suggetsions, and I'll have to weigh them against the deck.
Fuel for the Cause is 4 mana, not worth imo.
Wonder is decent, but it has to be in the graveyard, and it doesnt play with counters.
Kalonian Hydra... welp, time to make more cuts.
I mentioned to a different user that Wild Beastmaster is a good pick, and Cultivator of Blades is very similar. I doubt i'll be able to get both in, and for that reason, Beastmaster wins with a lower mana cost.
Khalni Garden is decent, i'll swap out a forest.
Tezzeret's Gambit used to be in here. It's good, but i have better ways to both proliferate and draw. That said, if i found an opening for it, it might find its way in.

Wonder to give your infecting democrats flying?
Kalonian Hydra for doubling counters
Khalni Garden for the Ezuri Trigger
Tezzeret's Gambit Draw and proliferate?

Some suggestions I have for your deck:
One downside to token decks is that the best token producers are at a high cmc, so I would recommend you get a good ramp package for your early drops. Cards like Avacyn's Pilgrim, Farseek, Rampant Growth, Boros Signet, Gruul Signet, and Selesnya Signet.
Champion of Lambholt benefits from both token producing and the additional power granted by your commander.
Mercy Killing is a really flexible card which is usually used to convert your own large creatures (hopefully after getting the attack buff from Gahiji, Honored One) who will die from spot removal anyway into tokens. It also can deal with problem creatures your opponent's control in a pinch.
Board wipes are a problem for decks like this that commit to the board, so you may want to try out cards that lessen their impact like Dauntless Escort, Fresh Meat, and to a lesser extent, Goblin Bombardment.
Overall this is a solid deck, and with a bit of tweaking could become extremely powerful and unique.
