So one thing about commander is, because of the length of games and the amount of interaction you see, you want all of your cards to do things. Going through your list there are a number of cards that just fill spots on the curve with no real long term impact. Specifically you have creatures like, but not limited to; Rot Shambler (at least it gets bigger though,) Sporecap Spider, and Yargle, Glutton of Urborg (at least he’s huge, which with the right cards could be useful, he’s decent to sac to Jarad for example...) There are other creatures with stronger static effects, or even useful etb triggers like Eternal Witness and Acidic Slime all the way up to Craterhoof Behemoth.

So then it’s just a matter of what to fill it with. There are so many options, how do you want to win primarily? Go wide with tokens?

Nice list! Twinflame and Heat Shimmer would be all-stars here, definitely recommend them. Since they give the token copies haste, it's easy to generate infinite mana with a mana dork and something like Eternal Witness.

You might like these too: Harabaz Druid, Cackling Counterpart, Quasiduplicate, Repudiate / Replicate, Snap, Depths of Desire, Archaeomancer, Harnessed Lightning, Debt of Loyalty, Fiery Gambit, Dovescape, Possibility Storm, Knowledge Pool

I just came up with a pretty janky Tooth and Nail combo that works with Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle untapped, 6 other lands - or even fewer if you have mana doublers, and one additional mana (so 9 altogether). However, it requires at least 3 blue mana sources in your lands (including arixmethes) and at least 3 green ones (also including him). So no additional mana but T&N's casting cost is required (in contrast to the Palinchron/Eternal Witness combo).

Step 2 Show

Step 3 Show

Step 4 Show

Step 5 Show

Step 6 Show

Altogether, you will need to "build around" this combo a bit, but I'll try it myself when I switch from Vorel of the Hull Clade to Arixmethes.

Leyline of Lifeforce - > Leyline of Abundance

Obelisk of Urd - > Coat of Arms

Fyndhorn Elder - > Fyndhorn Elves

Frontier Guide - > Zendikar Resurgent

Might of the masses - > Lead the Stampede

Stampede - > Beast Within

Strength in numbers - > Heroic Intervention, but (Wrap in Vigor is the budget alternative)

Strata Scythe -> Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip

I highly dislike overrun, because I think you can run Ezuri instead, but I will admit that +3/+3 can sometimes be the difference between winning or losing.

Also, find room for an Eternal Witness in there, it's pretty good.

Hey big fan of the deck list. Gunna make it in paper soon. Some questions, ever think about adding Waterfront Bouncer or Stampeding Wildebeests or Temur Sabertooth to go infinite with Eternal Witness and a Time Walk effect?

Also Equilibrium and Erratic Portal do something similar but aren’t creatures so less synergy. I like Waterfront Bouncer the most out of all the options because of its low mana cost so it can contribute to your early game plan of being aggro and drawing cards and can bounce opponents hate bears and also transitions later into your combo.

Nostalgic Dreams and Skullwinder seem like very decent options too. Dreams has little downside if you’re swinging with your creatures and Skullwinder is E-Witness number 2 that requires very little play around.

Rasaru on High Risk, Higher Reward (Needs Help!)

Again, excellent information, Profet93! Can you tell I’m still a bit “green” when it comes to deck building?

FYI – There are 2 brutal flyer decks in my playgroup. Alela, Artful Provocateur and a dragon tribal, piloted by Torbran, Thane of Red Fell. That is why I originally added cards like Predator, Flagship, Clip Wings and Whirlwind.

It's frustrating that they can just fly over everything… but if there are better cards, then let’s add them! My notes are below!

Predator, Flagship - see comment above

Emerald Medallion – I see that you’re saying here. I currently have x8 1, x2 artifact creatures and x3 others, for a total of 13, that wouldn’t benefit from this card. However, I still have 26 creatures (that includes my commander) that can use it. Is that not enough to justify the 2 cost of the artifact?

Burgeoning – You’re probably right, plus it would give me some additional budget to work with.

Prodigious Growth – I originally added this for 4 reasons (prob not good ones!) 1. I could slap it on commander for more dmg. 2. I could slap it on my larger dorks for survivability. 3. I could slap it on one of my creatures with reach to take care of some dragons without dying. 4. Card draw, based on creature toughness. I definitely like bear umbra though! Colossal Majesty – I’ve never played elves before, but it seemed while most of their power is lower than 4, their synergy allows them to build quickly. However, I def like Rishkar's Expertise more!

Clip Wings – I can see how this card can be weak, given that the opponent gets to choose which flyer gets destroyed. And obviously this only works against flyers.

Jungle Basin – Understood. Consider it out of there! Replace it with a forest?

Desert Twister – I totally understand what you’re saying here and agree. I’m just trying to stay under budget!

Tranquility – Understood. What would you replace it with?

Whirlwind – see comment above

Journey of Discovery – Replacement options?

Nature's Spiral - Eternal Witness,

Regrowth is strictly better. - I can see why after reading the text!

Overrun - Roger that!

Gaea's Bounty – I see that it’s like Journey of Discovery. Replacement options?

Rude Awakening/Sylvan Awakening – I don’t think I get the “combo” you’re talking about. Are you just saying that you wouldn’t have to tap the lands for mana, but attack with them because you could use cradle to produce mana?
