Thanks for the comment! so I should take this time to explain some stuff on what I have going on in the deck with how its working. Generally my hand nets me generally a few lands to start with, but key is my opening hand usually has Llanowar Elves and Priest of Titania . Priest of titania allows me to tap for 1 for every elf in play. Depending on the match you are playing, if your opponent has an elf in play that grants you mana. I played a 4 player FFA with friends and one person had an elf deck. I dropped Lurking Predators turn 3, and on my next opponents turn I flipped out a Worldspine Wurm . Due to those cards I am able to get things out quick. so realistically, I have more than 19 lands ;). Elvish Piper handles those creatures in my hand that I can't drop due to mana restrictions.
Murkfiend Liege is actually in this deck more for the secondary ability, rather than the +1/+1 ability. His second ability allows me to untap all my creatures on every upkeep. So a FFA game (which usually me and my friends play, rather than 1v1's) I am untapping creatures at the beginning of every upkeep ( Elvish Piper ). The +1/+1 is just a nice bonus.
I hear you with Necropolis Regent , but she is mainly there to cover some flying, but her second ability is what i was after. Dealing combat damage, you put that many +1/+1 counters. So stuff just gets bigger and bigger. Kind of the secondary purpose of the deck really is they just keep getting bigger and bigger. As for Thran Quarry I agree its a tough card, but unless there is a destroy all creatures spell, I generally have creatures out, especially since Dryad Arbor is also a creature. In the years of playing this deck, I have never sacrificed it.
I agree with you on Omnath, Locus of Mana Victory's Herald and Purity . Those were sort of let me add in some stuff. Omnath as he gets big with mana, Purity as just protection but not really needed, and Victory Herald as a temp way of giving flying but Akroma Memorial does that just fine.
I think I will reduce down the deck by eliminating some creatures. Here is what I see immediately for reduction: Borborygmos Forgotten Ancient Giant Adephage Omnath, Locus of Mana Purity Victory's Herald

Hey, nice budget version of Atla. Your deck name gave me a laugh :)
Fanatical Devotion is another no mana cost sac outlet that can sac an Egg at instant speed. Fanatical can save Atla from most board wipes or removal spells. High Market is a land that's a sac outlet and Crop Rotation can tutor for it.
Open the Armory can tutor for Greaves of Staff, two important equipment to have more access too. Mwonvuli Beast Tracker can tutor for a creature with trample and put it on top of your library to then cheat it onto the battlefield with an Egg.
Quartzwood Crasher and Giant Adephage are two budget big creature upgrades. Both of them have trample, can create their own armies of trampling creatures, create a token to copy or populate and have excellent interaction. Angel of Sanctions is nonpermanent removal on a flying creature and if you get to embalm then the Angel token is very good to copy or populate.
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Blossoming Sands
- Graypelt Refuge
- Kazandu Refuge
- Rugged Highlands
- Desolation Twin
- Maelstrom Colossus
- Enlisted Wurm
- Scute Mob
- Ageless Entity
- Bull Cerodon
- Woolly Thoctar
- Colossal Majesty
Desolation, Maelstrom and Enlisted abilities only trigger if you cast them not when you cheat them onto the battlefield. Without their triggers they're very lackluster.
Good luck with your deck.

I really like that green has stuff like Progenitor Mimic , Scute Swarm , Spawnwrithe , Giant Adephage , and Permeating Mass , as well as Rhys the Redeemed . But I want a card like Brood of Cockroaches , Endless Cockroaches to be like that and Ogre Slumlord .
Creature - Insect
When a nontoken creature dies, at the beginning of the next end step, create a token copy of Cockroach Infestation.
This is designed to basically limit how combos using it can work. Also, it'll be amazing in a devotion deck, as every token is 3 devotion to black.
I'd like to see a White card that uses the Battalion/Mentor mechanic, and also creates token copies of itself, like Legion Warboss , making copies of itself, and monowhite.

I was testing your Xenagos deck and, believe it or not, I am sitting here playtesting your deck and I went 12 turns with only drawing 1 creature - Giant Adephage Also only had one single creature in the opening hand, Balefire Dragon .
Have you tried playtesting it? Does this sort of bug happen a lot?

Might want to look into adding these cards for combat step potency. Berserkers' Onslaught, Aggravated Assault, Domri, Anarch of Bolas, Savage Ventmaw, Rampaging Baloths, Skarrgan Hellkite, End-Raze Forerunners, terrastodon, Kogla, the Titan Ape, Scourge of the Throne
And these cards for card-draw and mana ramp Beast Whisperer, Garruk's Uprising, Castle Garenbrig, Llanowar Elves, Temple of Abandon, Gruul Turf, Sheltered Thicket, Cragcrown Pathway Flip, Return of the Wildspeaker, Elvish Mystic, Hunter's Insight, Ilysian Caryatid, Guardian Project, Bonders' Enclave, Nylea, Keen-Eyed,Lifecrafter's Bestiary
And the cuts I were thinking of could be Vivien, Champion of the Wilds, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Giant Adephage, Spidersilk Armor, Mistcutter Hydra, Shifting Ceratops, Sunder Shaman, Voracious Hydra, Rhonas's Monument, Blood Mist
This are just my first initial thoughts on the deck.

If cloning's your game, then I have a (few) name(s)!
So if cloning is your go to, I'd suggest things that can allow you do go big, quickly. If you are absolutely deadset on Sultai, I understand, but possibly choose Temur? With cards like Riku of Two Reflections?
Another option would be Naya, with Ghired, Conclave Exile?
Some good ideas could be: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Kindred Charge, Desolation Twin, Giant Adephage, Phyrexian Processor. The new Scute Swarm and Skyclave Relic, and some artifact Shenanigans with Mechanized Production.
Hope these few Ideas help you out!

I like these Beefcakes because they add to the party without adding to our Devotion. Honestly with Giant Adephage and Utvara Hellkite, if they don't get removed quickly our opponents are in trouble. It doesn't cost us hardly anything if a mostly token board gets removed. Minor synergies with cards that sac stuff as well.
I like them, I guess is the answer. Technically I have yet to play Quartzwood Crasher but he's just like the others so I'm sure he's great.
Regarding Drakuseth, Maw of Flames; He's really good if your opponents have a lot of lower health but valuable creatures. If you see stuff like Tymna the Weaver, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death... that kinda stuff, Drakuseth is REALLY good. He replaced Inferno Titan for me because he reaches a little higher overall. Flying is also a plus.

How have Quartzwood Crasher and Giant Adephage been treating you? They seem to have good synergy with Terror of the Peaks, and I'm thinking of adding them back into my deck if they turn out to be useful and impactful enough.
