Bloom Tender Discussion

Hey man! Welcome to magic. I have a few suggestions... feel free to ignore any/all of them.
Dorks are one mana creatures that tap for mana. A lot of the time people don't like them, because before you play with them you don't realize how absurdly powerful they are; people are wrong. I highly suggest running at least a handful of these guys, like Llanowar Elves, Elves of Deep Shadow, Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic... In general, ramping turn one is REALLY strong, since it lets you play a turn ahead of everyone else. Though they aren't one mana, you could also consider some cards like Priest of Titania or (if you're rich) Bloom Tender, which are also pretty strong.
Slate of Ancestry is an interesting card to consider. You're running a lot of creatures, so I think in general using Slate of Ancestry will be card-positive for you. Note also that if you discard a creature card with it, Meren of Clan Nel Toth can just get it back for you.
Plaguecrafter: This guy is messed up, and he gets you an experience counter from sac-ing himself. Also, once you're at 3 exp, you can just keep recurring him.
Abrupt Decay/Assassin's Trophy: Personally, I like Abrupt Decay more since I play in a meta with a lot of counterspells and low-to-the-ground decks, but both are good. Being able to kill any card type is generally pretty powerful.
If you're in a counter-heavy meta, Veil of Summer is an absurd card.
Finally, running Ancient Tomb is worth considering. It's pricy, but the price is lower these days than it has been in a while; the ramp it offers is really, really good.
Cards I'd consider cutting:
Eldrazi Monument: Your experience may be different from mine, but I feel like this card is probably a win-more type thing in that it's only really good if you're already winning the game. You're probably better off just running card draw by something like Phyrexian Arena or Slate of Ancestry.
A few lands: If you run the dorks mentioned in (1), generally people don't play more than 33 lands.
Black Sun's Zenith: Like Butcher of Malakir, I think you have plenty of ways to make your opponents lose creatures already. You're probably better off running more universal removal, like Windgrace's Judgment.
Also, since you're a new player, I'd like to point out edhrec.com is an excellent resource I use a lot. You should check it out if you haven't already.

Obvious power upgrades would be Mana Crypt, Gaea's Cradle, or Mox Diamond with a big emphases on Cradle with this commander. I think you might like Deafening Silence because you are so creature heavy. I would also consider adding the Yisan line with Wirewood Symbiote, Bloom Tender, and Mirror Entity to generate infinite mana with only 3 Yisan verses. Aluren and Cloudstone Curio are also essential if you're wanting to take this to the next level because it opens up so many combos. If you decide to go this route to open up more infinite mana combos, Walking Ballista would be a strong finisher that you can tutor with a strong stax/tutor like Ranger-Captain of Eos.

I did actually see the new Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath deck going around reddit recently and I am seriously considering it. The fact that you get a decent commander that also serves as an outlet is just so compact that it might convince me to switch off the big mana theme and go all-in on the combo with Food Chain lines and perhaps even Isochron Scepter. My biggest concern is that I lose a lot of meme value and I would have to cut a lot of pet cards like Wilderness Reclamation and Doubling Cube because Kruphix is no longer in the command zone.
I really want a Bloom Tender but the reason I don't have one yet is because $40-50 is quite prohibitive for a dork that taps for 1-2. If I were in more colors (especially 4-5) it would be more of a priority imo.
Freed from the Real is an interesting one that I haven't thought of before. I'm worried that right now because I have only Incubation Druid and Kiora's Follower as decent targets it might be a bit too dead, but I will add it and see how it does.
Thanks for your feedback!

Your primer is hilarious I really enjoyed reading it. I also like the deck. As you are going for infinite mana have you thought about switching to Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath as the commander? As a infinite mana outlet it would consolidate a lot of the extra combo cards to be able to run more interaction / other fun cards. Also I would recommend taking a look at Freed from the Real, Neoform, and Bloom Tender to go along with your Vigean Graftmage, and Incubation Druid combo.

this is a sisay weatherlight captain deck for cedh this deck runs 2 different combos that could win you the game Godo, Bandit Warlord Helm of the Host (i don't think i have to explain this one) Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God + Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Oath of Teferi both pws can now flicker each other and 1 additional permanents (a land whould produce infinite mana for exemple) to win from there you can use Oath of Kaya or Ashiok, Dream Render to kill your opponents and win
that's a lot of cards and godo is faster you think ? well not realy using either Bloom Tender or Faeburrow Elder activate the boss to find Derevi, Empyrial Tactician this will untap the dork you can now find Aminatou, the Fateshifter flicker derevi find Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God and i assume you get it from now
the rest of the deck is toolboxing so i'll not get into every scenario for each card but sisay's activations can be used "as counterspells" to specific things

I just took apart my Tatyova druid deck, since the landfall fit wasn't great for what I really wanted to do, which was yoink. I think I'll be rebuilding with Chulane, Teller of Tales , though, before I build with a mono-green druid commander like Seton, Krosan Protector . The deck can still be heavy green, but for such a focused strategy, what you really need to be able to do is dig through your deck, and both Chulane's ability and having access to blue are great for that. You also get access to Tatyova, Benthic Druid , Rashmi, Eternities Crafter , Noble Hierarch , Bloom Tender (yes, I know you get it in mono-green, but you see how that doesn't matter), Faeburrow Elder , Coiling Oracle , and Wood Sage .
