Thanks for both of these great suggestions Belkager and unstable_anomaly! I did consider Animar, Soul of Elements but ended up airing against him since the deck seemed to be generating 2 or 3 big creatures within a few turns rather than having the several small ones that normally are used to pump him up for good use. I could reliably play my commander for that first counter, if he's on turn 3, but playing him any other turn in the game felt bad. He may still be worth slotting in at somepoint but for now, I'll probably hold off. I like Elementalist's Palette for flavor and it does have great late game possibilities if you can cast just 2 or 3 X spells. The speed of it does kinda concern me, though, and I have a personal grudge against 3 cmc rocks (mostly due to my love of crappy 2 land hands lmao)

Yeah you bet MilesHiles, happy to help! You make a good point about Kindred Discovery. I've actually pulled it from a few decks recently for similar reasons.

One other card I forgot to mention is Elementalist's Palette. It's a bit slow in the early game as a 3cmc rock, but has great late game potential with your commander.

Thanks for the advice Max_Hammer I did have a look at Elementalist's Palette but I don't think it's rewarding enough currently since I only have 13 X spells, there might be some other good ones that would make this even more worth it though. by throwing out big tramples. the hide button unfortunately is not showing for me the other hydras you'd mention.

For Hazezon, Must includes for me would be Gauntlets of Chaos and Harmless Offering So I could take advantage of the Desertwalk ability.

For Jeron Carthalion, Door to Nothingness due to Jeron making the ability easier to activate and Seraph Sanctuary for the lifegain would be my must includes.

For Shanna, I'd be looking to weaponize the second ability through cards including, but not limited to, Chasm Skulker and Psychosis Crawler. This card could make Bant mill formidable. Elementalist's Palette and Unbound Flourishing would be must includes.

I personally would not use any ramp over two in this deck. My suggestions:

OUT: Skyshroud Claim, lower land count to 35, Elementalist's Palette, The Great Henge

IN: Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Birds of Paradise, Wild Growth

For card draw and removal:

OUT: Negate, Krosan Grip, Stinging Study,

IN: Counterspell, Nature's Claim, Opt

Two other cards I would suggest to add but I don't know which cards you would be willing to take out for them:

IN: Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor

Elementalist's Palette is a DEFINITE future inclusion into this deck! I strongly believe that it was created JUST for Zaxara, the Exemplary! Plan on seeing its eventual addition into the 99 of this deck on a future episode of the UP & UP Series on our MTG Burgeoning YouTube channel. I also can envision Nyxbloom Ancient being included as well. Thank you for the suggestions!
