psionictemplar, thanks again! Several of these will definitely work. I've added Act of Heroism to my Maybeboard and I'm looking to see how the others might fit in. In order to play the ambushers at little to no cost, I'd need most everyone tapped to draw in an attack. I'm still tweaking this concept and playtesting, but after turn 4-5, I lose momentum with the ambushers unless I can get a Wilt-Leaf Liege and several enchantments on the board.

Turn 1: Play a land (Forest). Play a Birds of Paradise
Turn 2: Play a land (Plains). Play Behemoth Sledge. Flash in Qasali Ambusher if attacked.
Turn 3: Play a land. Equip the sledge and smash with ambusher. Use Fog effect or Dawn Charm if BoP gets targeted. Taking damage is fine, here, too.
Turn 4: Play a land. Play Wilt-Leaf Liege as a 5/5 creature and boosting all others by 1 or 2. One mana left for fog after attacking.
Turn 5: Play a land. Play Loxodon Hierarch as a 6/6 creature. Two mana left for Ephemerate or Fog effect at end of turn.

I don't want to take advantage of your time and generosity, but do you have any thoughts here?

{{user:psionictemplar}}, thanks for taking the time to provide me with your comments—they're much appreciated. 

I slept on your well-thought-out advice and I've taken the points made into consideration. I've also taken a stab at explaining my intention behind the deck, below, just to clarify the style of gameplay I'm looking for.

But first! I'll address your comments in chronological order:

Regarding tap lands, they were my first choice for budget concerns. But, now that I understand the speed (or rather lack thereof) effect, I'll look into acquiring the ones you and Balaam__ recommended.

  1. I'm looking less at Kaheera as a companion, but you're spot on by noting the creature types are not in alignment. Although I really like the synergies between Frondland Felidar and Kaheera, the Orphanguard

  2. Added BoP in place of the Elves.

  3. After you mentioned it, I took a good look at the purpose behind the swap mentioned above. Initially, I thought the artifact (Behemoth Sledge) might be longer lasting with an added flexibility to achieve the same effect as Unflinching Courage. But I also see the rationale for both suggestions, and I like it. I would go with Daybreak Coronet if I changed the legality of this deck to Legacy so I could make better use of the stacking life gain abilities of it and Armadillo Cloak. If I keep it Modern, I'll add in All That Glitters instead of Unflinching Courage. Nice touch!

============

  1. The intentions behind the fog effects might have been near-sighted (and flavorful at best), but they only work when up against other creature-centric decks. Playing responsively at Flash or Instant speed is something I enjoy and having the tools at my disposal to handle threats is in my wheelhouse as well. I also liked the notion that I would be able to buy my time with either a fog effect or an ambusher and return in kind by equipping the sledge and tapping any other creatures in my way with Frondland Felidar, essentially having enough fog and ambushers to discourage any physical assault until I had boosted my other creatures for a crippling attack or two.

  2. Cultivate is definitely not needed and was a leftover from an earlier / alternate build. Thanks for the pointers, here.

  3. In line with the fog effects, my purpose for including Ephemerate was to save my ambushers or any other creatures from targeted effects that made it through the fog. My response to losing enchantments was to use something like Retether or Replenish which is also flavorful and in line with the "come out of nowhere" theme.

============

Regarding the other cards, I like Oversoul of Dusk and Unbreakable Formation but the others don't necessarily fit into the theme or style.

All in all, I really appreciate the time you spent on this. It's been eye-opening and educational to say the least and crafting my response has helped me better understand the direction I'd like to take my deck with a few much-needed tweaks. Any other suggestions are more than welcome!

Got it. Made the change, Balaam__. Thanks for the tip!

I'm also considering a few other changes:

1) Trading 2 Frondland Felidar for 2 Loxodon Hierarch. I'm thinking the synergies with Ephemerate and Bronzehide Lion are longer-lasting without having Kaheera, the Orphanguard in play.

2) Trading 4 Llanowar Elves for 4 Birds of Paradise OR 4 Sylvan Caryatid.

3) Trading 2 Behemoth Sledge OR 2 Unflinching Courage for an extra Shield of the Oversoul and one of either card not being traded above.

What are your thoughts? psionictemplar, please feel free to weigh in, too!

Decent deck. You might think about getting that average cmc below 2.5 but besides that I like it

So don't take my recommendations as me disliking your deck, but I'd suggest adding Eidolon of Blossoms,Enchantress's Presence, Fertile Ground, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Wild Growth, Overgrowth, Tuvasa the Sunlit, Setessan Champion, Bear Umbra, Winds of Wrath, Arcane Signet, Thought Vessel. But consider which of the higher cmc ones you y like because average cmc is important

Suggested cuts would be: Charisma, Thornweald Archer, Rofellos's Gift, Grimoire of the Dead, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Predator Ooze, Revoke Existence, Rayne, Academy Chancellor, Lux Cannon, Stonecoil Serpent, Behemoth Sledge, Necropede, Wall of Denial, Spawning Grounds (as cool as it is, it's likely going to get the land it's on blown up), and think about taking out some of your etb tapped lands. Again these are suggestions and in no way am I saying these cards aren't good.

Anyways, hope it helps and I do like the deck, estrid proliferate is a good place for this commander

I feel like you could use additional options for when you gain tons of life. Aetherflux Reservoir comes to mind.

Behemoth Sledge might be useful as well.

A couple changes I am doing to the deck:

Zetalpa, Primal Dawn for Akroma's Memorial I know not on theme but cool as crap

Anguished Unmaking for Crib Swap

Primal Rage for Vigor

Behind the Scenes for Behemoth Sledge

Fell the Mighty for Terminus

I feel like Chitinous Cloak isn’t worth the 3 mana and then 3 equip. Maybe Behemoth Sledge would be better to give Lifelinker and trample effectively acting as a second Loxodon Warhammer in the deck.

Hammer of Nazahn is also a good include since it will give your commander indestructible and let your equipments attach for free.

I'm not sure I like the Green splash here.

Aggressive Mammoth , at triple seems way too difficult to cast with just a splash.

Mutant's Prey is probably just bad. You have access to better removal in white, and the fact that you need a creature with a +1/+1 counter on it to even work means that you will have many situations where you can't even cast it.

Behemoth Sledge is great, but probably not worth plashing for as a single card if you cut the other two, which I think you should.

On another note, I suggest you keep your deck at 60 cards, and if you don't you should definitely add more lands.
