There are a lot of enchantments here - how well does Bane of Progress work? Do you find it's a dead card often?

cPute thanks for leaving a comment! I appreciate the love, artifacts need to be kept in check! The deck's big finishers are Arcbound Ravager or Bane of Progress once effects like Mycosynth Lattice are on the board. Once everything is an artifact, we can go all-in and finish the opponents off with a big creature after destroying everything they own. We can also use Karn, the Great Creator to stop their lands for tapping for mana. There a couple of artifact tutors like Inventors' Fair and Ring of Three Wishes to help us get all the pieces we need.

Profet93 Nice recommendations, I appreciate you taking the time to look through and leave a comment!

Will definitely be including Karn, the Great Creator somewhere, I'll need to figure out where. You're right, definitely a great backup if Glissa can't make it out. Might go with Kenrith's Transformation, that's a great budget version of the Song of the Dryads you mentioned.

As for Bane of Progress, I completely agree. It's a much better inclusion than Creeping Corrosion and would be a great finisher if Lattice is out. I'm not sure if I see how Eternal Witness is a better choice than Regrowth. I know Witness is a fantastic card, no doubt there. But other than just being a creature I don't know if it takes the spot. (I'll admit, I just think Regrowth is a beautiful looking card).

Karn, the Great Creator in case your commander tax is too high and to combo with Myconsith lattice

Thousand-Year Elixir - Hasty commander

Eternal Witness > Regrowth

Song of the Dryads - Stop commanders, permanent removal

Kenrith's Transformation - Similar to above

Cut 1 land for Abundance to smooth draws and synergize with Sylvan library

Bane of Progress > Creeping Corrosion

There are some more suggestions but to start you off

On to the creatures. Most things look pretty good. I actually really like the inclusion of Tendershoot Dryad and Verdant Force as a sneaky alternate win-con. Some things I don't think should really be included are your 0 drop artifact creatures. I don't see them doing much. I also don't really like the inclusion of Lovestruck Beast as he doesn't really fit theme and he can be pretty fragile when it comes to being able to attack. Satyr Wayfinder also could be replaced since you don't have much graveyard interaction. I could also throw out Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma here since she doesn't reduce most of your hydras, but I think her attack bonus is enough to warrant her inclusion.

I think you've got your bases covered in terms of what effects you want to have in here so I think if you're adding cards it'd be good to look for redundancy. If you've got Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in here you should probably run Voyaging Satyr. Llanowar Tribe works well with your Leyline of Abundance. Speaking of which, one or two mana dorks would probably be prudent. You could focus on more elves and do something like Priest of Titania or Elvish Archdruid or you could just do other dorks like Whisperer of the Wilds or Druid of the Cowl. Some more card draw creatures could be good like Soul of the Harvest. One card that doesn't really have anything like it in here is Temur Sabertooth. You've got a number of good creature ETB effects that you can repeat with the Sabertooth. Also, I think it would be good tech for resetting an X cost hydra that you played early in the game and making bigger late in the game once you land a big mana producer like Karametra's Acolyte. Some other creatures w/ good ETBs on them that you could consider are Acidic Slime, terastadon, Regal Force, Fierce Empath, Avenger of Zendikar, and Bane of Progress. Oh yeah. You don't have Genesis Hydra in here. It should be in here. Also, I really like your idea to get Seedborn Muse and Yeva, Nature's Herald in here. They are great.

I thank you all for your suggestions. Even the ones above my budget [since I'm from Brazil, cards like Bane of Progress can reach prices above R$20], because they help opening my eyes to possibilities and where to take this deck to if I like it and want to push it further.

I couldn't fit everything in there, but I did try to mix things a bit adding a couple more lands, two spells to fetch those ( Sylvan Scrying and Farseek ), another low cost mana generator Whisperer of the Wilds (who can add 2 at once as well), another Scout Silhana Wayfinder and Genesis Hydra to help finding more of the big guns.

I tried to keep most aditions up to 2 CMC since I believe they're most useful at the start of the game - which is where I'd need more speed to build things up.

If you have any further comments, please feel free to contribute. I'd be happy to hear them =]

Cool build, welcome to Commander!

You have several sub-par cards that could use an upgrade. Here are some suggestions to include:

Given your theme, Heartwood Storyteller and Nullhide Ferox have no drawback.

To help put creatures into play, Elvish Piper and Norwood Priestess vome to mind.

For removal, I believe Bane of Progress is worth considering here.

Hope you like some of these suggestions.

Also, if you add in more graveyard recursion for all permanents, I'd add in Bane of Progress , maybe throw in Eternal Witness for that purpose and you should be more or less fine.
