- Ixalan's Binding and Blossoming Defense
- Odric, Lunarch Marshal + Xenagos, God of the Revels = hasty team?

- Do Creatures that simultaneously ETB trigger abilities of each other which state "when another creature ETBs..."
- Does casting cost affect turning Manifests face-up?
Ghalta, Primal Hunger Discussion

I'm not sure if any fit, having not seen the actual deck. Both the colossus reshuffle after being flung, and the wurm makes chump blockers. The others are just big.

Hey, good start on some what of a budget.
There's some budget Commander staples to consider adding for ramp and color fixing for five colors:
Current cards here that I don't think you need because they aren't as good as others:
- Brass's Bounty
- Coveted Jewel: without having a way to sac this artifact after it ETB and you tap it for mana then it puts a target on you to be attacked which then helps your opponents more than you.
- Ghalta, Primal Hunger
- Inquisitor's Flail
- Humble Defector
If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

mono green stompy wants to come out fast, and come out swinging. My main concern is that your deck is quite slow & clumsy, with lots of mana dorks and lots of very-high-costing cards which are going to gum up your hand.
Some cards, like Colossal Dreadmaw, are just bad. Regardless of how casual you’re playing, this card is never worth it.
I would suggest ditching all 12 of your mana dorks, as well as Dreadmaw, to get some more aggressive low cmc creatures into the deck. I would also suggest dropping Stonecoil Serpent (it’s not great for stompy/aggro), and limit yourself to no-more than 2-copies each of Ghalta, Primal Hunger and Khalni Hydra (drawing multiple will make for bad, hard to play hands)
Creatures you should consider replacing the above with include: Avatar of the Resolute, Barkhide Troll, Experiment One, Pelt Collector, Steel Leaf Champion, Strangleroot Geist, and Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig
Overwhelming Stampede is too slow a card, and often overkill. I would suggest running Aspect of Hydra instead, as it can get you wins much, much faster, and more reliably. You should also consider Rancor as another noncreature option.
Stompy/aggro has no real reason to run Utopia Sprawl imo. Also, 24 lands feels very excessive. Most mono-green stompy decks are generally looking to run around 18 (maybe 20 at a push).
There are a lot of existing decks built in modern for mono-green-stompy, including budget-builds. Have a google of “modern mono green stompy” should yield a ton of results to help you with your brew

Beloved Beggar // Generous Soul: This is cute... although the concept of a senior (and homeless?) beggar is pretty sad in hindsight. Anyway, disturb is a neat design, seems reminiscent of Eternalize.
Allied pseudo-Battle Lands: I prefer Fast Lands but these are still a welcome budget alternative.
Jadar: Is decay the token drawback mechanic? Basically Ball Lightning keyworded; kinda odd that it's tied to something that's mainly black-flavored.
Tovolar: Awoo~. More human and less magic-y than I imagined, but I'm not going to complain too loudly. I think we've all seen some variation of this as a custom card before, including the generic tribal rewards, but even though it's not super revolutionary it's liberating to finally see it happen. With the leak of the day/night mechanic I was a little worried they weren't going to introduce backwards compatible support for the old Werewolf cards for EDH, so I'm quite happy to be proven wrong in that. Finally: tribal Kessig Wolf Run.
Sigarda: Kinda unexciting for EDH Human tribal at least.
Secrets of the Key: Lonis, Cryptozoologist is obviously happy about investigate's return, tho honestly I'm kinda confused why Clues need a keyword tied to them anyway (not like we have "cook" or "dig" for its sister tokens).
Brutal Cathar // Moonrage Brute: While it's a bit insulting that one of the beter Werewolves isn't gruul-legal, I do like this design for boros. You dared force night to turn into day? Fuck you, Banisher Priest more of your stuff.
Tavern Ruffian: I mean no offense, but the art seems to feature the least female-coded female human figure yet in Magic, unless there's a key signifier I'm missing. I'd be curious to see if the art description specifically asked for that to be more diversive.
Avacyn's Memorial: Meh, seems overcosted, esp. since it only covers legends.
"Visions" mechanic: I like that this helps make costlier commanders better, even if e.g. Ghalta, Primal Hunger will be smooching of it. Also, Gitrog!

You miss some of the best and most onbvious inclusions here: Ghalta, Primal Hunger, The Great Henge, Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise all reduce their own cost. You can cast them for cheap but still get a high cmc cascade trigger. Kodama of the East Tree is also bonkers in my Imoti, allowing you to put 25+ lands into play untapped in a single turn, that’s especially great with Nyxbloom Ancient or Zendikar Resurgent. Also if you get your hands on a copy of Palinchron or Great Whale, you should consider them. It’s a free cascade trigger or they even ramp with a mana doubler/tripler or lands like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Aetherflux Reservoir is a strong finisher, often giving 150+ life in a single turn. You could also easily reduce the amount of lands quite a bit if you include more ramp and card draw.
That should be enough for a first input

YodaVoda I made some edits and got 2 of each card in while keeping Ghalta, Primal Hunger. Once turn 5 hits if a Gigantosaurus gets played then Ghalta, Primal Hunger is a 2 mana drop. only other thing I was debating is changing the 2 mana drops to 2x each instead of 1x and 3x. any concerns with current lineup?

Dencoan Yeah i think 2x Garruk's Uprising is fine, as for Rampaging Brontodon maybe have your wife playtest some games with Rampaging Brontodon instead of Ghalta, Primal Hunger to see which one she prefers.
