Why not have any cards that draw off playing creatures if you're playing so many creatures? Not even Beast Whisperer? There's also Primordial Sage, Soul of the Harvest, and Zendikar Resurgent for that. I also think you could really use Toski, Bearer of Secrets and Ohran Frostfang as well, the frostfang being especially good because it gives your creatures deathtouch, so you can cut as many of the deathtouch creatures as possible, such as Daggerback Basilisk, which is an awful card. Saryth, the Viper's Fang and Bow of Nylea are also good ways to give your creatures deathtouch without having to commit so many slots to creatures with that ability that do literally nothing else for you. If you're not concerned with budget, there's also Concordant Crossroads, The Great Henge, and Glimpse of Nature which would be great additions.

I'm not sure if these are above your price range, but I run Druids' Repository and Bow of Nylea in my Tovolar EDH deck. A jank suggestion is Sight of the Scalelords, but I need to play test that more. I'm also testing out Kodama of the East Tree and Neyith of the Dire Hunt. I would highly recommend Nylea's Intervention alongside Reliquary Tower, and if you're willing to pay for it Master of the Wild Hunt is a great card.

IHATENAMES, I used to run Bow of Nylea and I found that it was decent, but rarely as impactful as I'd like given most of my creatures and the tokens I make already have deathtouch. I ended up swapping it out for Wand of Orcus.
I deliberately chose not to rely on combat based effects, and that is why I don't have more lure effects. I will say that while looking at lure effects, I realised Tempting Licid might be a great fit for the deck. So I will try and figure out what can be swapped out for it.
I may eventually add Pathbreaker Ibex, but it is very similar to Blossoming Bogbeast. Since my focus isn't combat in most cases, I decided to only keep one, and I picked the Bogbeast because It costs one less mana and gives me life. Craterhoof Behemoth is a card I'd run if I had more focus on token generation.
Thanks for the suggestions, even if I'm not exactly taking any of them.

I think you need to decide what direction you are going a little more. Lifegain or random counters(mostly bounty) or deathtouch tribal. I would recommend deathtouch tribal with this deck. Give yourself more Lure effects and keep in the random counters cards. Focus on better ways to pump the team like craterhoof or budget cards like Pathbreaker Ibex and more deathtouch enablers like Bow of Nylea trample + deathtouch =1dmg to creature rest at face so use that to your advantage.

Hey jamesmac42, thanks for the suggestions! I actually already have Nature's Lore and I've thought about Three Visits , and Three Visits is a good run over Rampant Growth for sure but, throughout my playtesting the ramp has actually gone quite well, but I'm still playtesting and curating the deck. I have looked at Lifecrafter's Bestiary but decided that generally my spells cost enough as is without big creatures like Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient , Grand Warlord Radha and Savage Ventmaw , but it is still worth considering! personally, given how giving everything Trample and Deathtouch works, I think I more highly value Bow of Nylea potentially giving all of the big creatures huge pumps, trample and deathtouch so that more damage tramples over. Shamanic Revelation is a card I had in the deck at one point, but it feels like a card that just gets you more ahead, instead of helping you come back from a board wipe or something, I think I would personally consider Harmonize instead of Shamanic Revelation for more consistent card draw and a slightly cheaper cost. Radha Heir to Keld is a card I have been moving back and forth on constantly and it's actually a card I put in the Budget list for this deck, maybe I'll keep it around. I'd love to look over your deck list and see if there's any kind of inspiration I could take! I think this could be my favorite deck if I can get it in paper

ValiWolf Hey, that’s funny, we almost built the same deck!
If anything, I would recommend more ramp. You’re gonna want it, trust me. Radha, Heir to Keld is a great dork for this deck, with a helpful attack trigger to boot. Three Wishes and Nature's Lore can grab Cinder Glade and Stomping Ground .
Purely my preference, but given the choice, I would slot Lifecrafter's Bestiary over Bow of Nylea . I also kept the Shamanic Revelation from the pre-con – that’s one card that’s never disappointed me.
I’d encourage you to play around and see what works!

This looks like an interesting starting point, I'll have a look every once in a while to see the deck's progress. With your big focus on deathtouch, how about Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats , Bow of Nylea and especially Fynn, the Fangbearer ?

I like this. Iwamori is one of those commanders that I have considered building a dozen times, but still never did because I didn't like resulting list. Yours looks very cool, I like the route you've taken. You should consider some ways to make your Saitama indestructible: Spearbreaker Behemoth , Hammer of Nazahn or something similar. Also, how about Gargos, Vicious Watcher as additional removal off of each Aura and fight spell? Bow of Nylea is a great value card that makes your attacks so much better. Vigor and Rite of Passage are awesome for fight decks. Klothys's Design can be quite a house in a deck with big creatures. And then, there is Return of the Wildspeaker . Oh, and I forgot Karametra's Acolyte and Grunn, the Lonely King .
