You probably want more card draw effects on creatures to really get your engine going. I'd recommend adding stuff like Beast Whisperer , Primordial Sage , Garruk's Packleader , perhaps also Drumhunter and Ohran Frostfang ( Keeper of Fables instead of the Frostfang if you're on a tight budget)

This is a pretty good start for your first commander deck! Possibility Storm could be cool here because it causes Ruric to trigger twice on every noncreature spell.

Personally I would make these swaps:

Treacherous Terrain --> Angrath's Marauders
Rampant Growth --> Gyre Sage
Cultivate --> Drumhunter
Leyline of Combustion --> Stalking Vengeance
Destructive Revelry --> Caustic Caterpillar
Colossal Majesty --> Garruk's Packleader
Pyroclastic Elemental --> Primordial Sage
Scorch Spitter --> Fierce Empath
Gruul Cluestone --> Yavimaya Elder
Tectonic Rift --> Jiwari, the Earth Aflame
Savage Twister --> Silklash Spider
From Beyond --> Gratuitous Violence

Nice you picked a really cool general for your first EDH! Nice to see Gruul getting some love. You do have a lot of noncreature stuff though, which your general seems to hate.

You might swap some of those noncreature things out for some of these: Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , Krosan Restorer , Magus of the Candelabra (this guy is super good when your general is out, all your lands will effectively make 3 mana each!), Voyaging Satyr , Reclamation Sage , Genesis Hydra , Savageborn Hydra , Apocalypse Hydra , Garruk's Horde , Garruk's Packleader , Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, Drumhunter , Artisan of Kozilek , Ulvenwald Tracker , Foe-Razer Regent , Gruul Ragebeast

I'mma be real with ya, chief... make Gargos, Vicious Watcher your commander. If not him, then Rosheen Meanderer . There is no reason for Gyrus, Waker of Corpses to be your general, as he's literally antithetical to casting X-spells! He can get almost none of your stuff back; just cut black and red, add some cards like Drumhunter , Abzan Beastmaster , Tuskguard Captain , Spearbreaker Behemoth , Moss Diamond , and heaping piles pf ramp.

In fact, if you want something a little less typical, it may be better to make a Marath, Will of the Wild deck with Paleoloth s, Spellbreaker Behemoth s, and all the removal, rocks, and ramp your heart could desire.

Still, that's all my opinion. Your deck is yours.

Further suggestions, on the backs of the two creatures I suggested to you I would cut Garruk's Horde and Ruric Thar, the Unbowed both are high CMC and I think you have other creatures you would rather play for those costs and get more bang for your buck.

On the side of Ramping out, let's talk a couple of options. Grand Warlord Radha could serve you well as you're going to want to be swinging a lot with several creatures. Radha would allow you to generate more mana for doing so and allow you to summon in back up during Main Phase 2 to shore up your defenses.

A Chromatic Lantern might seem decadent or too much for a dual colored deck but let's think of it this way, it's a three cmc mana rock that taps for any color AND color fixes all of your lands the moment it hits the field, that's almost always a good deal.

Talisman of Impulse and Farseek are both great options at only 2 CMC a piece which means we are potentially ramping on Turn 1 AND 2 which is huge. On a related note I would cut Tempt with Discovery as not only is it 4 CMC but in my experience, good players will always choose to let it whiff. OR even worse they will go fetch Ghost Quarter or Strip Mine and blow up anything cool you happen to go get for yourself.

Finally on the high CMC side for Ramp there is Caged Sun and Zendikar Resurgent The Sun is normally limited to mono colored decks but you are currently leaning so heavily into green I don't think you'd ever mind extra green mana at your disposal. Resurgent nets you all important card draw as Gruul has a bad habit of going Hellbent in a hurry.

Speaking of drawing cards let's talk Lifecrafter's Bestiary and Drumhunter both of which fairly easily allow you extra card draw and/or filtration just about every single turn.

Finally on a note of just damn good cards Eternal Witness and Warstorm Surge are never bad ideas for a deck of this style.

Drumhunter is awesome, mana dork + card draw.

Bitte ändere den Decktyp mal von Standard zu Commander. Ansonsten bekomme ich immer eine Warnung für jede Karte, die ich empfehlen will, die aber in dem Format nicht legal ist

Hier noch einmal ein paar Kreaturen, die ich eigentlich sehr geil und günstig finde - besonders, wenn dein Commander sie noch mit Trample ausstattet: Altered Ego , , Zameck Guildmage Gruul Ragebeast (nette Kombo mit Foe-Razer Regent ) , Ravager Wurm , Stonebrow, Krosan Hero (die Kombo ist wohl offensichtlich)

Progenitor Mimic , Simic Sky Swallower sind sehr solide. Gerade Hexproof/Shroud finde ich unglaublich wichtig.

Vessel of Endless Rest warum willst du das spielen? Wenn du Mana-Ramp willst, gehe am besten gleich zu den Signets: Gruul Signet Simic Signet Izzet Signet . Dann gibt es auch noch die Cluestones: Gruul Cluestone Simic Cluestone Izzet Cluestone

Deine Kreaturen sind teilweise recht teuer. Du musst natürlich austesten, wie das Deck läuft, aber ich würde zumindest zu Anfang die Daumenregel nutzen, dass man 38 Länder und 6 - 8 Mana-Artefakte spielt. Ich würde bei den teuren Kreaturen lieber mehr Mana als weniger spielen und dann vielleicht noch Karten spielen, in die du überschüssiges Mana pumpen kannst, wie River Hoopoe (nur als Beispiel, dass mir gerade einfällt). Ansonsten finde ich Hydras recht cool. Die kann man mit viel oder weniger Mana spielen und viele freuen sich sehr über das Trample, dass Surrak ihnen gibt. Außerdem kann man in viele Hydras auch später noch Mana pumpen. Schau mal hier: https://scryfall.com/search?as=grid&order=name&q=type%3Ahydra+commander%3AURG

Wenn du mit Paleoloth ein wenig in die "Power Matters" Schiene möchtest, wären vielleicht folgende Karten eine Sichtung wert: Drumhunter , Exuberant Firestoker , Mossbridge Troll (Wenn du Kreaturen mit Wachsamkeit nutzt, wird der völlig absurd), Mouth , Shamanic Revelation , Spearbreaker Behemoth , Where Ancients Tread .

Was mir auch aufgefallen ist: Du hast kein Removal. Ja, im Mehrspieler ist es immer besser, wenn man die anderen Spieler dazu überredet, ihr Removal zu nutzen, aber du wirst selber was brauchen um Bedrohungen die nur dich angehen zu beseitigen - oder einfach, um etwas zu tun wenn keiner der anderen Removal auf der Hand hat: Klassische Karten: Acidic Slime , Artifact Mutation , Beast Within , Blue Elemental Blast , Decimate , Krosan Grip , Manglehorn , Meteor Golem , Natural State , Nature's Claim , Pongify , Thrashing Brontodon Meine Geheimtipps: Bramblecrush , Broken Bond , Cindervines , Hull Breach , Hoard-Smelter Dragon , Descent of the Dragons (Damit kannst du auch deine eigenen kleinen Kreaturen zu Drachen machen), Unstable Obelisk (völlig unterbewertet), Storm the Citadel (deine Kreaturen haben Trampel, was ziemlich vernichtend sein kann)

Ideas for the Naya mechanic:

'

Idea #1:

This one sort of resembles the mechanic you suggest yourself ZendikariWol

Caretaker:

Goes on smaller creatures and has no innate effect.

Mechanic works:

Whenever you cast a creature spell with power or converted mana cost 5 or higher, you may return "the caretaker" to your hand. If you do effect.

Effect could be anything from reduction of mana cost, gaining life, draw cards based on number of creatures with Power 5+, search library for basic land, tunnel vision for a new creature/aura/enchantment.

Flavor: In the first Naya shard we had a lot of creatures with a similar feel. Godtoucher , Sunseed Nurturer , Drumhunter . The flavor on Caretaker would be that you call upon these smaller humanoids of Naya, and to more easily lure out or secure a better standing with the Nayan gargantuans, you have the Caretaker tend to the Gargantuan - by not being accessible to you.

It could be done with sacrifice instead, although sacrifice doesn't seem all that flavorful for a non-black effect. Exile could be another choice but in general that would require the Caretaker effects to be really strong to warrant using your early drops as cannon fodder for a bigger and splashier one.

Next is kinda in tow with the above;

Gargantuan:

Goes on big creatures with Naya's signature power 5+ template.

Mechanic works:

Whenever a creature with power less than 5 enters the battlefield,

Effect could be fight (the Gargantuan fights), gain keywords like Trample, Lifelink, bonus P/T, First Strike, +1/+1 counters.

You could link the mechanics directly to each other to lower the power level but it would also lose all out-of-block relevance by replacing the "creature with power less..." with "creature with Caretaker".

The Caretaker cost to bounce back to utilize would also fuel the Gargantuan effect by effectively giving you a small creature to cast again.

Flavor: When you first summon the gargantuan, you would likely want to use a Caretaker to ease the cost or grant the gargantuan some additional benefit. That symbolizes that the Caretaker is no longer accessible for you until you conjure it again. However the Gargantuan has been summoned and bringing the Caretaker afterwards makes sure the Gargantuan is tended to.

I may not be able to describe it properly here but I think you get what I'm trying to say.


Idea #2

Let a specific mechanic take a back seat and let Beast tribal be the Naya theme.

Naya is already made up of big powerful beasts. A tribal theme would allow more varied creatures and not just the gargantuans. Reprint Contested Cliffs and make a non-keyword mechanic that interacts with creatures that matches to a majority of the beasts.

Possibly make an enchantment version of Herald's Horn something like

Enchantment

When ___ enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.

Creature spells of the chosen type costs less to cast.

Whenever you cast a creature spell of the chosen type, you may look at the top 3 cards of your library. You may reveal a creature card of the chosen type and ...

either the effect is to put it into your hand or to put it on top of your library and the rest on the bottom. Either let it filter into gas or grant conditional card advantage.

Possibly it could be a modal version with exaggerated effects and maybe cost .

Something like

When ___ enters the battlefield choose a creature type and choose Lush or Hunt.

  • Lush - Creature spells of the chosen type costs 2 less mana of any combination of , and/or .

  • Hunt - Whenever you cast a creature spell of the chosen type, you may look at the top 7 cards of your library. You may reveal a creature of the chosen type and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library.

While it's more tempting to straight up make Beast synergistic cards, I think it would be better if you try to set it up with a choice where possible. It puts a strain on the flexibility of the mana costs of these cards, as low mana intense cards will likely bleed over into other color shards. That's not inherently a problem but it does make Naya as a stand alone shard weaker, because it may function better as a support for something else. In the lore Naya was said to be rich in mana, food and life. That would actually make a lot of sense if it was something the other shards wanted to get in on and exploit.

There absolutely should be Beast synergistic cards also but again when possible open up the possibilities.

If there are a few Naya centric cards that specifically says Beasts as the synergy, it leads newer players to perceive that as the best way to utilize the Naya mechanics. It may also teach them through more skilled players, that even though there is a pretty obvious choice, that choice may not be the best option. Going with the aforementioned enchantment, it may be way better to use that enchantment with a completely different tribe, like Elf.

We do need a something like

Sorcery

Look at the top 5 cards of your library. You may reveal a land card from among them and put it into your hand. If you control a Beast you may put it onto the battlefield instead. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.

PS I really hate the text formatting of TappedOut. It is so limiting and doesn't allow to make proper format that eases the reading, separation of texts.
