Reveal the top X cards of your library. You may put any number of permanent cards with converted mana cost X or less from among them onto the battlefield. Then put all cards revealed this way that weren't put onto the battlefield into your graveyard.
Genesis Wave Discussion

DreadKhan, this is a great idea as well. I don't currently have any Ambush Commander , but it would also combo nicely with Immaculate Magistrate . As for the extra mana I don't really have many good mana sinks in the deck besides Genesis Wave . Some include a Craterhoof Behemoth or two as a big finisher, but I don't own any of those either.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards it is a very powerful card. I am testing it but question is: is it an auto-include or is it a win-more? You cannot tutor it, and the only effect you really care about is the one that lets you draw cards. I think it is better to have cards like Beast Whisperer and Genesis Wave : one is fetchable, the other one is one so powerful that lets you win on the spot.
We'll see :)

@TheCardPool, thank you I love this deck. It's so much fun. Most wins come from Akroma's Memorial , Genesis Wave , Overwhelming Stampede , and Triumph of the Hordes . But to be honest when I slam down an Akroma's Memorial and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds from a huge Genesis Wave with a fist full of cards. My inner timmy goes wild. So much fun.
No for your card suggestions. - Tireless Tracker is a good card but I don't think it's good here. If I was doing an artifact sub-theme or if I had a way to use those for mana or something then it's good but the investment of 2 mana per card is much worse then a Rishkar's Expertise . - Mind's Eye seems good especially when I got Font of Mythos or Howling Mine in play. I just don't think I have room for it. - Runic Armasaur , I like this card but is not gonna do anything half of the time. Its hit or miss. - Seedborn Muse another really good card but it's not gonna do anything in this build. - Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is so good infact it's so good that I get the feel bads when I play it and nobody's doing anything because they skip their every other untap step. This card would be a good fit here in this deck if you are okay with people hating you for playing it.
I play Eldrazi Temple for the ramp for the 2 eldrazi spells in the deck as there is no drawback for playing it, it's an easy include.
@Beebles, all good suggestions.
Wolfcaller's Howl is good too but I'm not exactly going wide.
Grothama, All-Devouring is another good one I strongly considered putting into the deck. I still want to but I'm not sure.
Greater Good is awesome and I only have one problem with it. I would have to sac the creature. Still worth putting in but I just don't want to sacrifice multani.
There's so much to talk about these cards you mentioned but I really don't want to spend all day typing out why I chose not to add them in my build.

Your land count seems a little light. I'd suggest being at about 37 if at all possible, especially with such a high average CMC. Players are going to shoot down this commander, so be prepared to run the deck without her. You've got lot's of mana rocks, which I think is good. If you find mass artifact removal ruining your day quite often, then switch out a few rocks (signets) for land tutors.
You should main-deck Guardian Project . The draws are ETB triggers, which works well with what you're doing here. You could probably cut Defense of the Heart for it. It's good, but your commander does that better.
Genesis Wave , Selvala's Stampede , and Tooth and Nail ...all of these, I'm kind of iffy on. They seem like win-more to me. Your commander is going to dump out plenty of creatures once you get going, so I wonder how much you need these. Redundancy is good, for sure. But it may be too much, and they are very high CMC spells. Your call, though.
You may need a few more sac outlets. I'd probably try to run somewhere in the neighborhood of seven, if not more, because they are so important to your commander's ability. Martyr's Cause and Fanatical Devotion are good free sac outlets, and Altar of Dementia is another good one. AEther Flash has a similar effect in this deck, too.
That's all I've got for now.

This is a somewhat strange request. The interaction between Dakmor Salvage and The Gitrog Monster is extremely strong, and very cheap monetarily. You should consider running a couple dredge cards for value anyways, as hitting 2-3 extra draws off a dredge is an easy and once again cheap monetarily way to get ahead in card advantage.
To humor you though, here's what I'd probably run.
- The full suite of 1 drop mana dorks Arbor Elf Llanowar Elves Fyndhorn Elves Birds of Paradise etc. etc. and some big dorks like Priest of Titania
- Cards that let me put extra lands into play for more landfall triggers Sakura-Tribe Scout Skyshroud Ranger Azusa, Lost but Seeking Explore Exploration Burgeoning maybe even Walking Atlas
- Cards that let me turn lands into effects or otherwise graveyard the lands Sylvan Safekeeper Constant Mists Crop Rotation Elvish Reclaimer Edge of Autumn Lotus Field Forbidden Ritual Reprocess Harrow
- Cards that love lands entering battlefield or graveyard Terravore Titania, Protector of Argoth Avenger of Zendikar Rampaging Baloths Undergrowth Champion Lotus Cobra
- Symmetrical black land hate cards that I can break parity on with Gitrog draws and recursion Smallpox Pox Death Cloud Desolation
- Recursion effects for all these land sacs Life from the Loam Groundskeeper Crucible of Worlds Ramunap Excavator
- Cards that go with my board hate subtheme here Torment of Hailfire Oppression Necrogen Mists Bottomless Pit Bane of Progress Back to Nature Black Sun's Zenith Damnation Root Maze Caustic Caterpillar
- Finishers if you don't want to combo, like Beastmaster Ascension Genesis Wave Craterhoof Behemoth Overrun Overwhelming Stampede
And from there, round it out with some efficient early game beaters, some spot removal, land ramp, and a bit of card draw.

I have Selvala, Heart of the Wilds as one of my own edh decks and I can post my build of it up if you’d like. It’s not totally geared towards competitive since I’m not too big in that scene, but I think it is still a very focused deck. I would say she is really good and straightforward to use and would highly recommend her. I think the best play I’ve had with her is Genesis Wave with X = 13 and and then just dominating the board state.

I like Woodland Bellower because it can tutor up a Quirion Ranger , Scryb Ranger , Wirewood Symbiote , etc to allow you to keep going. If I'm dumping more than 12 into Genesis Wave I personally leave one floating specifically to spam Selvala again.
I will look into possible Hidden Herbalists scenarios though, thanks!
