Yeah, I kind of lost my way here. Started out with Surge Mare and Atzocan Archer , who do not have defender in the deck. I also tried Arcades in place of Huatli. I suppose that I need to re-work this and re-focus.

Nice list, I've been looking to do something similar to abuse Vivien, Champion of the Wilds . For the sideboard, have you considered Kraul Harpooner in place of Atzocan Archer ? The Harpooner will kill more fliers than the archer and comes out for one less mana. I'm leaning toward including the Harpooners in the main deck; I'll share my list once I have something playable. I am going deeper into the adapt creatures, Incubation Druid and Growth-Chamber Guardian , to make full use of the play-at-instant speed that green doesn't get very often.

Some secondary options for fliers I've had good experience with in this meta are Crushing Canopy since it also answers enchantments and Sagittars' Volley as it can clean a board of spirit tokens as well as one large body. However, those last two are not creatures which is probably more important in your deck.

If possible I'd consider swapping out the Crushing Canopy s plus the multani's or something for a couple copies of both Thrashing Brontodon and Kraul Harpooner . Just a way to cover the same bases while adding to your critical mass of chonkers. New Vivien, Champion of the Wilds might be a sweet include in this also when she becomes available.

That said I think the best avenue for improvement would be the sideboard. There aren't any popular decks that are gonna have consistent targets for Broken Bond or Plummet when it matters and I'm not sure what matchups Silhana Wayfinder and the twins are coming in against. Cards like Thrash / Threat , Sorcerous Spyglass , Shapers' Sanctuary and Find / Finality seem like decent sideboard options.

If wildcards are in short supply you might want to consider the following: - Atzocan Archer (decent against mono tempo+ weenie sometimes) - Colossal Majesty (winmoorish but fun) - Diamond Mare - Dryad Greenseeker (card advantage) - Kraul Foragers - Kraul Harpooner - Thrashing Brontodon

Sorry, thought of a few more items. If you splash black, Poison-Tip Archer is a great anti-flyer measure. Incubation Druid has a lot more power mid game than Druid of the Cowl and might make a good sub, budget depending. Atzocan Archer in the sideboard against flying decks would be really helpful. Alternately, if your local opponents have large flyers, Kraul Harpooner works great in mid game (though he usually dies). Good luck!

Yeah, there's not nearly enough lands. Think of it this way: Lands are 21% of your deck, as it is now. That's the equivalent of running 13 lands in a 60-card deck or 9 lands in a 40-card deck. You're built around an 8-mana commander, so 39 is the minimum you should be running, along with, at the very least, 8 sources of ramp.

I think these 3 videos will be very helpful for you. The first two are videos by The Professor, one on Commander deck construction, and the other on building a 3-color manabase for the format. The last one is SaffronOlive on common pitfalls in deck construction.

Next off, what you'll want to do is look at the EDHREC page for Gishath to see what other people are putting in their decks. If you're on a budget, you can also click at the top right to go to what people are playing in decks labeled as budget. Remember to include card advantage, ramp, removal that is either flexible or hits the whole table, and haymakers that will close out the game.

As for cuts, I would start with 4 to 7-mana non-dinos, since that spot on the curve will get clogged up pretty quickly, and you want to be putting expensive dinos out for free with Gishath. I would also cut Atzocan Archer , Emperor's Vanguard , Frenzied Raptor , Looming Altisaur , Nest Robber , Pterodon Knight , Raptor Companion , Raptor Hatchling , Ravenous Daggertooth , Sky Terror , Steadfast Armasaur , Voltaic Brawler , Cobbled Wings , Primal Amulet  Flip, Abrade , Blossoming Defense , Demystify , Lightning Helix , Righteousness , Shock , and Slash of Talons . They're all either too narrow, too weak, don't scale up well with the creature size or life totals of Commander, or don't make sense in your deck.

Good luck!

Substituted Arashin Cleric with Atzocan Archer, for flying decks and small creature removal.

Took out Sanguine Bond & Entomber Exarch, and added an extra Ravenous Chupacabra.

And made the mana base quicker (and more painful).

Nice looking deck with some interesting cards.

Only thing that might be missing is some defence against flying or big creatures. Maybe a Atzocan Archer,Death-Hood Cobra or Turntimber Basilisk would be a nice addition?

Other than that, a Temple of Plenty could be of use.

Finally, an Elemental Bond is very nice for some card draw.
