Woodland Bellower Discussion

I don't know if you can get one or not, but as for lands, a Gaea's Cradle should definitely have a home in this deck, especially since you've got opportunities to abuse Palinchron and Great Whale with Sakashima the Impostor.
You've got some nice cards that take advantage of creatures being the top card of your library, so some library manipulation would be good. I think you might benefit from Sylvan Library, Mirri's Guile, and Soothsaying.
Anger might work better for you than Concordant Crossroads, but either way, to make room for it, I think I'd cut Hardened Scales. Yeah, you've got some creatures that do some nice things with counters, but I'm not sure its going to do that much more for you.
I really like cards like Lurking Predators, and other options like it are Call of the Wild, Zoologist, and to a lesser extent, Game Preserve. If you really wanted to stomp some heads, you'd use the Gaea's Cradle to activate Soothsaying's second ability, get some fatties on the top of your library, and then start bouncing your Palinchron to untap the Cradle to pay for Call of the Wild's ability, and pretty soon, you'll be drawing out the fatties in your library and really messing stuff up.
Cuts: Woodland Bellower - it seems and expensive critter to tutor for a mana-dork or Man-o'-War or something like that. Draining Whelk - not sure it fits well here. I can see how it could be useful, but if there are other options more useful for what you want the deck to do, it could be cut. Maybe that's the spot for Deadeye Navigator. Decimator of the Provinces - I like him, but I'm not sure he's necessary.
These are just my thoughts, so take them for what they are worth there. Remember, I'm recently back into Magic, so I'm relearning a lot, and there's a lot I still don't know about that I missed out on.
One more thing I'll add; with here, you've got access to the best creature tutors available: Worldly Tutor, Natural Order, Defense of the Heart, Survival of the Fittest, Pattern of Rebirth, etc. If you can find some slots to fit tutors into, it can really help to speed you up if you find the deck needing it.
I really like the build here. If I had access to all those sweet Eldrazi, I'd consider it. +1, and let me know how this plays out for you.
I hope all this helped!

I've been playing Eldritch Evolution since it was released and I'm a huge fan of the card. I think the largest appeal of the card (especially in abzan) is Voice of Resurgence and a close second being Renegade Rallier which combos with Saffi Eriksdotter. Sac'ing the voice allows you to (at bare minimum) grind out the value of the token even if your Evolution is countered. surprisingly enough, I cut Eternal Witness from my list because it will never buy back your tutor, which is the large appeal of the card in Chord of Calling and Collected Company shells. Lastly, I would actually recommend going just a step beyond with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Hornet Queen, or Woodland Bellower in place of some of the 5-costs (keep thragtusk and also add Reveillark which is absurd with a variety of targets including Hornet Queen and Fulminator Mage. You can free up room to accommodate these changes by cutting some of your non-creature spells such as gideon and lingering souls, which honestly you can go wide without them by grinding out your voices and thragtusks while generating more resilience and greater value in those slots while reducing your curve. In my non-creature slots, I would stick to 4x Path to Exile and some number of Abrupt Decay or Collective Brutality, the latter of which can pitch an over-costed card to interact with your opponent and give your Reveillark and Renegade Rallier additional targets, though brutality is also great with your Lingering Souls

Panharmonicon is pretty bonkers. Druids' Repository can act as great ramp, even attacking with a Birds of Paradise means you can cache the mana for later. Woodland Bellower and Greenwarden of Murasa are both great card advantage.

Woodland Bellower is a great tutor that triggers as soon as it enters the battlefield, whereas Hulk needs to die; they may seem to be similar, but they're actually quite different one from the other.
I find that Primordial Sage is "the least of the best" among the CMC6 creatures that are currently in the 99. Since there is also Soul of the Harvest to keep the draw engine alive, I don't even feel guilty for taking it out.
Given all of that, I still need to playtest a lot to make a final decision. Luckily for me, two weeks from now I'll attend a EDH multiplayer tournament, which will be the ideal environment for testing both Protean Hulk and Prowling Serpopard :)

Whelp, it was just announced that Protean Hulk is unbanned in EDH. Now the only question that remains is what to swap it out for. I'm going to say Woodland Bellower, since it fulfills a similar role, but playtesting may be needed first.

Woodland Bellower only fetches nonlegendary :(
This is why I'm always bitching about WoTC printing a nonlegendary Derevi for me haha.

TempestShadow if Bounding Krasis untapped permanents instead of creatures this deck would literally become 10% better, but instead it just breaks my heart.

- Baru, Fist of Krosa - (Weak effect that can be achieved through Paragon of Eternal Wilds, Gaea's Anthem, Hall of Triumph or Caged Sun. I'm not telling you to trade him for any of those cards, though)
- Nylea's Disciple - (meh)
- Oran-Rief Hydra - Too slow
- Rampaging Baloths - Too slow
- Solemn Simulacrum - Not needed. The only situation it'd be useful would be if you have Birthing Pod hanging around.
- Tireless Tracker - (weak in EDH)
- Yisan, the Wanderer Bard (too slow for Selvala)
- Lightning Greaves (meh. As suggested bellow, Thousand-Year Elixir would be better most of the times)
- Gravity Well (Check my Utility Section)
- Back to Nature and Creeping Corrosion aren't needed. This is a fast deck and your opponent's probably won't have time to build a board big enough for you to need it. You already have Bane of Progress and Wave of Vitriol, there's no need for those.
- The Great Aurora - Works wonders with token-based decks. Not so good in here, even if it's a boardwipe of sorts
- Elemental Bond can be replaced by Garruk's Packleader
- Primeval Bounty is good, but I would make room for some of my suggestions.
Get Selvala online as soon as possible (T2):
- Sword of the Paruns - (You just need a creature with power 4 or greater and you have infinte mana. Same goes with Umbral Mantle)
- Great Oak Guardian - (it might also work as a finisher)
- Wirewood Lodge - (a must have)
- Thousand-Year Elixir - pseudo-haste and neat untapping
- Seeker of Skybreak, Quirion Ranger or Scryb Ranger.
- Quest for Renewal for the extra mana every turn.
- Genesis Wave - Also ramps
- Genesis Hydra - Doesn't ramp, but gives you a body
- Nessian Game Warden - Nets you an extra creature
- Fierce Empath - Tutors your big guns.
- Wild Pair - 2 for 1 most of your creatures.
- Woodland Bellower - Does not get legendary creatures, but it should be ok.
- Boundless Realms - Getting rid of the lands in the deck so you can draw better stuff.
- Pathbreaker Ibex
- Overwhelming Stampede
- Dragon Throne of Tarkir
- If you have access to infinte mana Walking Ballista or its cousin Goblin Cannon (yes, you can activate it multiple times before it explodes)
- Silklash Spider
- Glissa Sunseeker
- Newly Spoiled Sandwurm Convergence
- Mosswort Bridge
- Abundance (prevents you from losing to mill and also makes sure you'll never be mana flooded or mana screwed)
- Primal Surge might be fun, but would require you to tone down on instant/sorceries
