SaltySpecula Deckling

Just a dude who started playing Magic just before Theros came out and now is trying to make his own way to have fun! Talk to me, make suggestions, ask to play a game. I'm all for it! :)

I enjoy designing decks of many kinds, from one trick pony gimmick decks to manipulative, authoritarian control decks to stunning combo decks. Don't take too long to play your cards though, quick game's a good game! ;)

Favourite colours to work with? All five at once. Something fun about playing with the best of all colours.

Oh and as MoGoose831 mentioned, it may be an idea to change up your lands a bit. I'd suggest some Temple Scry Lands like Temple of Triumph, Temple of Abandon and Temple of Plenty and some double mana bounce lands like Boros Garrison, Gruul Turf and Selesnya Sanctuary. Especially if you bounce the temples with the bounce lands, you get multiple scry from one land.

This will also help reduce the significant cost of your deck a little bit.

As best I can gather, you seem to be heavily focusing on the +1/+1 counters part of your commander, which is interesting.

Considering you want to beef up your creatures, it may be an idea to sideboard or mainboard a boardwipe or two, and since you're going to have huge creatures, I think Blasphemous Act would be a good one for you. Especially useful for dealing with your opponents casting annoying little deathtouch 1/1's.

Warstorm Surge also combos very well with token generation, especially if said tokens ETB with +1/+1 counters already on them.

Also since you have quite a few cards that focus on ETB triggers I really have to suggest Strionic Resonator and Panharmonicon which will wombo combo insanely well together and with cards like Warstorm Surge and Cathar's Crusade, not to mention Purphoros. Together with those 5 cards, it really would only take you generating 5 1/1 tokens in your upkeep to kill someone from full health. And if you put more focus on token generation, I would suggest the brand new Amonkhet card that was spoiled recently called Anointed Procession and it's older green version Parallel Lives. Assemble the Legion may also be of use to you since you already have proliferate engines in your deck, and along with Doubling Season and the other two token buffers I just mentioned, you will have a great deal of tokens.

For lifegain, you could also consider True Conviction and perhaps some graveyard recycle for late game Archangel's Light. For a creature as well for lifegain, Patron of the Kitsune would work well, and you'll get multiple triggers per attack off your Archangel of Thune

Keep in mind, most of these suggestions will change the nature of the deck and how it plays rather than improve what's there. So take these suggestions with a grain of salt before thinking about buying these cards.

Thanks for the suggestions zoodiackiller. I'm trying to make sure that every card in and of itself contributes to the deck's roll, not just feeds off it. I've only got one Ajani, so most of his abilities are useless, I already have Brave the Elements, another creature that does what Mother of Runes does but better and Serra Ascendant isn't good enough by herself to justify her place in the deck.

However Phyrexian Processor is interesting and I may sideboard that one. :)
