Said on Arcades Wall Tribal...

No Mnemonic Wall ? Seems like it would be good blink bait since it can fetch back one of you blink spells to rinse/repeat. The CMC is higher but seems like it does enough to be worth it plus your curve is more than low enough to deal.

Something like Eladamri's Call or Congregation at Dawn to fetch a key defender or grab Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive ?

Maybe Mystical Tutor to fetch a blink spell when needed? Sorry, this suggestion is a bit on the pricey side...

I like the inclusion of Approach as a back up plan.

No Nesting Dragon ? Seems like it would combo so well with this commander.

You don't have a ton of white but do have a lot of green so you may want to adjust your basic land distribution in favor of some more forests.

Some lands to look at: Exotic Orchard , Fetid Pools , Sunken Hollow , Temple of Mystery [pairs well with the bounce lands for double the scrying opportunities], Opulent Palace [I'd replace Rupture Spire with this, at least it doesn't cost you mana and it gives you all 3 of your colors]. Obviously if you can afford or are willing to spend on shocklands they would be the best upgrades [within reason].

You can probably safely cut a land or two and add green ramp cards like Nature's Lore , Rampant Growth , Farseek and Cultivate / Kodama's Reach .

Please, please, please replace Manalith with literally any other mana rock. Commander's Sphere , Darksteel Ingot have the same cost and do something else or have an additional benefit. Fellwar Stone should be able to siphon at least 2 of your colors from the field. Or cut to fit in another green ramp spell listed above.

You're really logjammed at the 5 CMC slot. I'd swap out a few for some cheaper spells so you are reliably casting spells on turns 1-3. Gift of the Deity is one I'd cut as it is pretty expensive for what it does and like all auras, increases your risk of getting 2 for 1'd. I don't know if you're built around Dralnu enough to run him.

You could really use Eladamri's Call so you can pull out Crested Sunmare as its one of your best creatures. And because the mare triggers at the end of each endstep, maybe Soul Warden as it will likely gain you life on every turn [same reason you're playing Sun Droplet I guess].

You may want Exotic Orchard for additional color fixing. Fortunately with more coming out in C19 decks they should get even cheaper soon.

With access to red, Shared Animosity could add some more punch.

Stoneforge Masterwork is a cheap equipment piece that should give a nice early buff while hopefully scaling well in the late game.

No Chameleon Colossus ? If you're open to using changelings, its one of the better ones.

Icon of Ancestry is anthem and card draw in one.

Mutavault can sneak one more 'bear' into the deck without lowering your land count.

You really could use some better removal. Beast Within , Hull Breach and Decimate shouldn't break the bank. The first is even kind of on-theme.

I think you can safely go down to 38 lands with the cuts coming from the regular mountains. Replacing 2 more basics with Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse will let you do some color fixing. Any reason no inclusion for one or two lands like Gruul Guildgate ? I'm not a big fan of tapped lands either but one or two shouldn't hurt your development as much as getting color screwed will.

Wolfir Silverheart is such a big boost to your best attacker. Increasing Savagery also is a pretty potent shot of +1/+1 counters. Witchstalker is on theme and protects itself.

Fresh Meat should let you recover from the inevitable boardwipe.

For protecting your commander, cards like Ranger's Guile , Sheltering Word , Blossoming Defense , Blinding Fog and Hapatra's Mark offer some surprise value but you eat the life shielding your commander [Word is a wash]. Alpha Authority is more on-theme and is 'repeatable' protection. Archetype of Endurance [sadly not a wolf/werewolf] protects your whole team as does Domri Rade if you can get to the emblem.

Grafted Exoskeleton will turn any of your pingers into a long range infect machine.

You may want some more artifact ramp. You could probably safely go down to 37 land and add Rakdos Signet and Talisman of Indulgence .

Doesn't look too bad to me, especially for a first try.

I think the deck still wants Sol Ring , despite it not having a sac ability or ETB effect. Sakura-Tribe Elder is another card that just does work for this deck.

You'll probably want a dredge effect or three as well, Dakmor Salvage , Golgari Thug , etc as they will really prime the graveyard for you. Life from the Loam would be amazing but am assuming your budget is modest.

Your land base is probably where you'll really want to improve, especially needing to add green sources so you see them early. The treasure tokens may help more often than I'm giving them credit for but eventually you'll probably still want to get Overgrown Tomb , Breeding Pool , Blooming Marsh , etc. Fetid Pools , Woodland Cemetery , Tainted Wood , Ash Barrens and Exotic Orchard should be relatively inexpensive and help smooth out your starts.

With this high of a creature count, Guardian Project would be good additional card draw.

Heroic Intervention would be a great card to save your team from untimely boardwipes.

You could also use some spot removal. Chaos Warp and Beast Within deal with pretty much anything.
