Wolfbriar Elemental Discussion

Hi again !
I love how the deck doesn't need to follow one specific guideline regarding the creature choice.
Since we are playing 8 planeswalkers in the deck and given the fact that we have access to every color, thanks to Utopia Sprawl, I wonder if Oath of Ajani doesn't become a relevant staple in the deck. It allows us to make our smaller creatures far more threatening or better walls for the grinding game and obviously helps us in casting any Garruk even earlier. Generally speaking, we have enough mana to cast any Garruk very early in the game and casting Oath demands us only an extra mana, but will save us many more in the long term. Therefore, I don't think it slows us in any way besides the fact there might be better cards to have in hand. That, I'm uncertain.
Also, I'll safely say you sure stumbled upon Khalni Hydra while building the deck, but I think we definitely could add it as a one-of. We vomit many creatures and given an early access to a lot of mana, it becomes alive very early in the game and generates us 8 extra mana for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. I feel like the card is much more useful to us than Hornet Queen. Tokens are really easy to manage for our opponent and will probably only provide us with chip damage. Our opponent can't really attack over our beatsticks in the first place, so the defending aspect isn't all too relevant in my humble opinion.
Other honorable mentions are Aspect of Hydra that might go in the "winmore" category, but can also win us a lot of games just by itself, Carnage Tyrant, a phenomenal Ixalan creature that can be extremely hard for our opponent to remove and deal with; synergizes well with Aspect of Hydra, and finally Growing Rites of Itlimoc which I think can be fantastic in the deck, given the fact we have an absurd amount of creatures on the board especially with Wolfbriar Elemental.
I'm sorry if my comment was extremely long and also thank you for the fast answer provided.
All hail Green devotion !

If you playtest this deck, you will see that the speed at which it ramps almost always gives you more mana than necessary by turn 5-7. You can win with a helix pinnacle or 400 Wolfbriar Elemental wolves easily by turn 6. A recent playtest of mine allowed me to do over 8 million damage by turn 6 with no infinite combo. So, the fact that Omnath, Locus of Mana allows you to store mana is nice, but doesn't compete with the speed Shizuko, Caller of Autumn gives. but Omnath, Locus of Mana and Upwelling are in this deck for that purpose.

I've always liked Wolfbriar Elemental as something to shove infinite mana into, though you'd probably need a haste engine

Hi, thank you for your recommendations. I already run Blue Sun's Zenith.Laboratory Maniac would be good, but he is already wincon for several of my other decks. The deck's main mana sink is to utilize Cloudstone Curio and two utility creatures, along with several other X spells such as Villainous Wealth, or buyback cards like Capsize. Why may I ask would you not recommend Torment of Hailfire? The deck also runs Tasigur, the Golden Fang as the commander so I can draw the entire deck. The deck also can easily storm out with Mind's Desire, Cloudstone Curio and Aluren. You can use the Paradox engine to get infinite wolves With Wolfbriar Elemental, then can get an infinitely large Craterhoof Behemoth

First off, Wall of Blossoms isn't legal in Modern.

Same with the additional costs in cards like Collective Defiance and Collective Brutality. You discard and choose new modes as part of the cost, before the spell and it's copied abilities enter the stack as part of the spell.
