Xantid Swarm Discussion

Hey there fellow Kamahl player! A few suggestions for your deck to help out.
Wild Beastmaster and/or Cultivator of Blades - These 2 let you essentially double whatever you do with kamahl for no mana, leaving some extra mana open for instants, or to use during your second mainphase
If your budget allows for it, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a HUGE mana boost.
Nacatl War-Pride - This is personally one of my favorite cards and is amazing with Kamahl. You can turn their lands into creatures and they either have to block and lose lands, or you get a bunch of unblockable 3/3's that you can pump up with kamahl for ridiculous damage.
Another budget pending card would be Garruk, Primal Hunter - He's the best planeswalker to pair with kamahl in my opinion. pumps out 3/3's for his +1, gets you card advantage, and makes 6/6's for his ultimate.
It's looking great for an awesome budget, If you ever want to chat Kamahl, hit me up. Here's a link to my deck for more inspiration: Om nom Trample. Good luck!

Building another EDH deck, this time it's Elves PLUS Prossh, put together! (Quiet list plug: do you like FREE STUFF?) Need help with some of the missing cards.
I am especially anxious to get the two partner commanders!
Here's my binder. There's only a few things in there I'd be reluctant to trade for the above pieces. There's value up and down in there, I promise!
Comments below or on my binder please!
TY in advance!

Hey artichoker! I actually haven't really done much theorywork with Xantid Swarm or Hope of Ghirapur, althought I do have a reason for that. Generally, you are going to go turn 1 dork, turn 2 Varolz, turn 3 attempt a win. Trying to fit a 1 mana creature in on turns 1-2 can really hurt, and there's no way to give either haste in the deck, so they end up feeling very slow. Generally, the same spot that is filled by those can be filled by Autumn's Veil instead, which, while not a creature, has effective haste, as well as flash, so you can surprise blue players better. Thanks for the suggestion! They are definitely great cards, and have a spot in testing, they just don't make it into the deck right now.

Nice going buddy! I'm impressend and amused :)
Actually there really are some crazy shit 1 mana drops. Might I suggest some more?
Here we go:
Crop Rotation cough, cough Did I mention you should run some certain two lands? ;)
Shit, I now realized that most of the cards are ramp cards while you have CMC 1. Okay, let's change plan then:
Hope this helps and feel free to check some of my volunteer 1 mana drops in: Rhys Redeemed: Infinite Enchantment Combo Control
