bushido_man96 on Mamma Said Knock you out

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!

You may want to reconsider Artisan of Kozilek unless you can reliably hard cast it. If you get it on the battlefield because of Mayael's ability it does not trigger. Same for Defense of the Heart, Hunting Grounds, Zoologist, Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet.All of these put it into play, so you never cast it.

Ok, from brainstorming in other forums about library tutoring, the idea of running combos with Soothsaying, Call of the Wild, Game Preserve, and Zoologist came to mind, along with mana combos of the likes of Palinchron, Deadeye Navigator, and a Gaea's Cradle out. With a good setup, I think this combo could run out just about every creature in the deck with Call of the Wild on the table. Problem is, is that really what this deck should do, or should that be an idea for a different deck?

In green, some fun creature tutors to build around are Call of the Wild, Game Preserve, and Zoologist. Pick a commander you can scry with, and in green you have options like Sylvan Library and Mirri's Guile to help set your library, as well. The Call and Zoologist would probably get targeted, but the Preserve is more group hug, and might stick around. If you run it with a green/blue commander, there would surely be blue spells to protect those cards, and bring out your fatties for all to see. Momir Vig, Simic Visionary would be a good one for those cards.
