Bloom Tender Discussion

So, if you have a world gorger line you're going to want Entomb and Buried Alive they're easy ways to get the dragon into the yard. Additionally, you could add a Phyrexian Delver and Karmic Guide (to a lesser extent due to it being pro black) into the mix to double solidify your back up plan. Faeburrow Elder and Bloom Tender with Freed from the Real have proven to be super efficient for generating infinate mana but you may struggle getting all 5 colors but running Thrasios, Triton Hero fixes that; lastly, Dockside Extortionist with Temur Sabertooth or Emiel the Blessed have been the spicy tech people have been on for any 5c infinite mana combo.

I would consider much more ramp and a couple more switches for lands. From what I see (I apologize if I'm wrong) but the only reason you need that many basics is due to Cultivate. If cultivate was replaced with something better, you could thus remove some basics (not all of course) and have slots for improved lands. Here are some things that your deck could really benefit from- Ramp wise. I would recommend adding 2-5
- Three Visits
- Nature's Lore
- Lotus Petal
- Birds of Paradise
- Bloom Tender
- Emerald Medallion
- Jet Medallion
As for lands, some of the following might prove to be EXTREMELY useful for you, and I would consider each and every one of them
- Ancient Tomb
- Blooming Marsh
- Llanowar Wastes
- Woodland Cemetery
- Nurturing Peatland
- Twilight Mire
- City of Brass
- Mana Confluence
- Exotic Orchard
- Reflecting Pool
- Prismatic Vista
- Gemstone Caverns
- Gemstone Mine
- Tarnished Citadel
Having good ramp and lands can be very important in commander, and for the ramp you may lose some other slots in your deck, but in the end, I can guarantee it will be worth it! Anyways, if this does help be sure to check out (and upvote if you like :) some of my decks, Double Trouble EDH, The X Files EDH, etc! Hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!

I am waiting for my Walking Ballista to arrive then I will add this card too.
Also Bloom Tender cant produce blue mana (is needed to untap it) what somehow can be essencial in this Deck
Since there are already plenty of Wincons in this deck i dont consider adding Mind Grind
but thanks for all your advices.

Combos that might be a good add for the infinite mana so you don't rely entirely on Zaxara, the Exemplary:
Some wincons to think about:
Helix Pinnacle + infinite mana combo
infinite mana combo + Mind Grind
infinite mana combo + Walking Ballista

There’s only two one drop aura ramp to the three mana dorks you’re running. The rest of the worthwhile aura ramp are two drops which could replace the two drops your running. If you wish to argue Bloom Tender is present and worth playing, I’ll point out you are not running Faeburrow Elder or Nature's Chosen which would double their output. You also can’t go infinite with tender or elder without blue. Chances of going infinite with your creature ramp using Aggravated Assault is also slim. Furthermore, Aggravated Assault is awesome (I used to run it in my build), but you need to also run Sword of Feast and Famineas back up to your Bear Umbra. Both the sword and the umbra benefit the aura ramp cards. Synergy is a wonderful thing. We could also discuss how mana dorks don’t have haste but the auras can be used same turn if placed on untapped land.
I’m betting with all the creatures you’re hoping to gain benefit off of Sublime Archangel. Not bad, but Uril needs auras, trample, Protection from creatures, flying, indestructible, and (if possible) double strike, not exalted. You’re also running Winds of Rath,Day of Judgment, and Wrath of God. This is counter productive to having so many mana dorks over aura ramp.
This was my first commander I ever built and have been tweaking him for more than 5 years. Build him voltron tall and dont worry so much about going wide.
Overgrowth (if you like the enchantress draw odds.

Bloom Tender/Incubation Druid/Ilysian Caryatid/Gyre Engineer all make infinite mana with Vigean Graftmage+Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy I would also run Cryptolith Rite since any creature can make infinite mana with Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy+Pemmin's Aura or Freed from the Real

Recommended additions and reasoning:
Mirari's Wake, Mana Reflection: These come at cheaper mana costs than your Zendikar Resurgent. Drawing a card on the Resurgent is good, but not good enough, since you have to cast the creature. While you likely will have enough mana to do so, it is going to be less common than cheating out the creatures. Additionally, Mana Reflection will work with all permanents, not just land. So your creature and artifact mana will double as well.
Exploration, Oracle of Mul Daya, Bloom Tender: all phenomenal sources of ramp. Highly recommend Oracle for the ability to remove land fromt he top of your deck, allowing you to dig that one card deeper... where you will find...
Kozilek, Butcher of Truth: Even if you aren't casting Kozi, you get a massive beater with Annihilator, and as a huge bonus, he helps recycle your graveyard in the event of a board wipe. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Gaea's Cradle: You run a ton of green permanents, and if you take the Mana Reflections from earlier, you double the number of green you get from it. It is a really cool way to generate a ton of mana super quickly. about the Cradle, creature heavy decks can always benefit from it, and again... Mana Reflections doubles it.
Warstorm Surge, Stalking Vengeance: 2 enchantments that give you free damage that you can use as removal for opponent's creatures or nukes to the face. Additionally, fun interaction with the surge and the Blightsteel Colossus I also recommend, the Surge says the creature deals the damage... unblockable 11 infect shoots someone out of the game.
Panharmonicon: In a deck with a ton of creature based ETB effects, this artifact is a must. With the Surge from earlier out, now you get 2 of those triggers.... Eternal Witness: Phenomenal recursion, and can save you by getting back something you need from the graveyard.
Genesis Wave: Now that we have you pumping mana out like a pro, Genesis Wave for 40, and watch as a large amount of unnecessarily large creatures enter the battlefield and turn them sideways because you have...
Urabrask the Hidden: Yeah that's right, get that haste, and if someone tries to flash in a blocker it's useless.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Privileged Position, Vigor: Because nothing says "fun" like having a boardstate that is hard to remove. Additionally, damage to your creatures makes them bigger. Thank you, Vigor.
Craterhoof Behemoth: You play this with 10+ creatures on the board, and you have an automatic 100 damage added to your total.
Tooth and Nail, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Zealous Conscripts: This is an infinite combo as well as the tutor to get it. Tap Kiki, copy the conscripts, use the new copy's trigger to target Kiki, untap Kiki. Tap Kiki, copy the conscripts... Create infinite Zealous Conscripts to attack everyone for yes damage.
Gisela, Blade of Goldnight: Amazing for both extra damage and protection.
Vedalken Orrery: Because playing on your opponent's turn is funny. And your Seedborn Muse really gets to put in work in a 4 player game, on top of the Mayael useage.
Vexing Shusher: Because nobody likes blue. This card is a big middle finger to blue.
Lurking Predators: So your opponent wants to cast things? Maybe you get a free creature for it. Can be quite useful.
Recommended cuts and the reasoning:
Desolation Twin,Krosan Tusker: They don't do enough to better your boardstate in my opinion. Desolation Twin is a 10/10 sure, but other than that, nothing. Chances are, you won't be casting it that much to get the second 10/10 anyways. The Tuskar only benefits you if you cycle it, otherwise it is just a mediocre creature. Additionally, cycling it only gets a basic land, of which you are running very few. This is not a criticism of your land base. I didn't want to touch it too much because my own landbase is significantly more expensive.
Pathbreaker Wurm, Tectonic Hellion, Tyrant of Discord: These guys are all decent, but the Pathbreaker only helps one other creature. The Hellion is cool, but what if you have the most lands? You aren't running Crucible of Worlds, but your opponents might be. the Tyrant is more of a personal preference, I don't like it because of it's random factor.
Rith's Grove: It is a bounce land, without the benefit of tapping for 2 mana like the dual color bounce lands. Not worth running in my opinion.
Pure / Simple: This card is too restrictive. Running the Krosan Grip, Swords to Plowshares, and Path to Exile are all better options. They don't force you to choose multicolor creature, or equipment or aura. They just remove a target.
Tragic Arrogance: I love boardwipes as much as the next guy, but this hits you just as hard as your opponents, and instead of using Invincibility to get through it, you have to sacrifice. Wrath of God would be a much better option in my opinion.
Rith's Charm: To me it doesn't do enough by itself to warrant keeping. You have little to no ways of getting it back or making more uses of it, so it is a 1 shot item. I'm sure by now you have noticed I prefer things that have multiple and recurring uses.
Overall, I love it. I love Mayael, and she has been my strongest and favorite deck for a very long time (2012). My current version relies very little on her ability, because I played with a bunch of rather rude people that played Pithing Needle and named her all the time. It was not fun, but building my deck to use her ability as an option, instead of a strategy, changed the way I used her, meaning that the needle no longer leaves my deck dead in the water.
Please keep in mind that my recommendations are just that. if that Gigantosaurus doesn't do anything, but you like it because it's a dinosaur, and you don't want to cut it, you do not have to. I unfortunately gave up all my dreams of having cards I like for flavor, aesthetics, etc, because I decided to build my deck to compete and even stomp on combo and control decks. I have no room for cards that don't serve to better my boardstate as a whole.
Final Note: I will be more than happy to provide further insight and feedback if you have any other questions.
