Cream of the Crop


Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may look at the top X cards of your library, where X is that creature's power. If you do, put one of those cards on top of your library and the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.

I did some more digging around green cards and here are some more cards that may work in the deck:

Cream of the Crop is a great way to constantly get cards in a passive manner.

Season of Growth another way to help the flow towards win conditions and combos.

Sylvan Anthem little buff and again a helping hand with setting up combos

Book of Rass a possible infinite draw card which will help you draw out the behemoth or other such cards to win.

Aetherflux Reservoir another conditional win combo, I personally would put this as a maybe but I thought I would suggest it anyways

Triumph of the Hordes a disgusting way to win by all accounts. But hey, a win is a win

Fuzzy003 on Cascade or not ?

Found cascade works best with a lot of Scry or effects like Cream of the Crop or Scroll Rack so when you do cascade it's more just lining up the right spells rather than a random drop.

Just be aware things "put in play" with Genesis Ultimatum do not trigger cascade as they have not been "cast".

Cream of the Crop doesn't let you move any cards whenever a saproling dies, you just see one card and put it back.

Leyline of Vitality stops Skullclamp from being awesome, and I don't know that the life-gain is needed with Slimefoot doing his share.

Verdant Succession doesn't do anything in a Commander/EDH deck unless I'm missing something, you have to get a creature with the same name, but you can't have duplicates in a commander deck.

Citanul Hierophants and Mind Slash are great finds, I just added them to my maybe board/wish list.

For a few ideas on replacements take a look at my Slimefoot the Sac-away. there are some great budget cards there.

Looking over the list, there does not seem to be much GY recursion so I would consider Holistic Wisdom in case something important is removed.

Lotus Cobra is also very synergistic with the commander Ashaya, Soul of the Wild. If your commander is on the field, all creatures give you mana when they enter, so it also makes infinite mana with Quirion Ranger and your commander.

Cream of the Crop also filters through the deck fairly well, especially with the bounce effects, or at least lets you know what is coming if a dork is played.

Wilderness Reclamation untaps creatures and lands if your commander is present at your end step, and is an enchantment.

Orb of Dreams is also interesting because you already have ways to untap permanents, so it likely does not hurt you as much as the table.

As far as what I do not like I do not see the use in having Homeward Path in any deck, and I think the 6 mana requirement of Mouth of Ronom is simply too much, even if you have mana doublers and untappers. Considering the card draw, I would rather see a Reliquary Tower than either of these. That's it though, it seems like most of my suggestions would boil down to meta calls, so it is hard to tell what to remove.

This males sense, maybe try it. A card you could try is Cream of the Crop. It could help you filter for Primal Surge without interupting it if you cast it before. A useful white "ape" is Mirror Entity. Also, Chameleon Colossus is another big beater. Finally, maybe consider Cryptic Gateway and Belbe's Portal to cheat out some big apes.

I like a casual list with a strong theme! I hope you have a forgiving meta where you can actually play and enjoy this deck.

To follow up on the previous comment, this is the perfect deck to play the Cauldron Familiar + Witch's Oven combo.

Other obvious Food cards that would fit nicely are Gilded Goose and Tireless Provisioner .

Also on-theme and with the potential to be valuable are Cream of the Crop and Second Harvest .

Hope this helps!
