Green Sun's Zenith Discussion
2 days ago
Is there any creatures you are specific "I will not take these out"? I have a few suggestions mainly about the ramp and how to make it more consistent/efficient.
You don't need gen wave and put in play cards. For example...
replace Nissa, Worldwaker with Nissa, Who Shakes the World because she pumps your forests, untaps lands, and allows you to thin your deck if -8. Vernal Bloom also if you feel like taking advantage, but you do have vorinclex.
Eternal Witness at least one
Instead of Green Sun's Zenith I would go Genesis Hydra it allows you to dig for permanents mm like Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip (witch will also let you get a creature when it enters) rather than just a creature, and gives you a blocker / attacker
If you want to have a possible turn 3 add in Devoted Druid & Vizier of Remedies and to help cast it utopia sprawl and the card you wanted to add Sylvan Caryatid. That's if you want to add white. I'm a Mono Green player to but this is good.
Last suggestion would be if you went Hydras like someone said Unbound Flourishing, I play Hydras and they are better than most people think.
Hey check out my deck Gruul Hydras
If you want genesis wave to be optimal going all out on getting it pumped up is the way to go. There is an old school Gen wave deck that was pretty good i would refer to it for extra tid bits.

With Dryad Green Sun's Zenith becomes very viable for ramp and other shenanigans!

CoolCat7271, with extra basic lands, I’d run Harrow, Roiling Regrowth and/or Springbloom Druid if you have the space to include them. I wouldn’t force them in otherwise. I personally like Green Sun's Zenith, plus if you were to add Dryad Arbor you can have early ramp with the tutor. If you add the dryad, you can also have the win con of Emiel the Blessed + Dockside Extortionist + Dryad Arbor + Omnath, Locus of Creation. If you feel you need just bombs then go with Natural Order.

Starsky2814 for those running this deck without dual lands, with maybe snow covered basics to replace them, does it warrant the inclusion of, say Cultivate or Harrow in one of our flex spots? Also the Tempt with Vengeance idea is pretty..tempting. In my personal list I’m considering Green Sun's Zenith and/or Natural Order since the majority of our creatures are green and they can bring out Angry Omnath or Craterhoof right away. I’d like to know your guys’ thoughts!

Grove of the Guardian is a good land you could throw in, gives you a big token that can be copied. Cryptolith Rite is insane ramp. Illusionist's Bracers to copy Rhys's copy abillity, working very similarly to Doubling Season and crew. Crashing Drawbridge is a good budget way to give all your tokens haste which can be very valuable. Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Altar of the Brood are good wincons if you're not able to attack for whatever reason. Huatli, Radiant Champion, Mentor of the Meek, and Runic Armasaur are all pretty consistent card draw options throughout the entire game. And Aura Shards is a huge defensive piece, keeping opponents' games out of sync with their key artifacts and enchantments. A few tutors to get out creatures and enchantments help as well... a few are Idyllic Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Eladamri's Call, and Green Sun's Zenith. That should be a pretty good list to get you started, you can check out my Rhys deck if you would like for any other inspiration you may find: 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens). Rhys is such a fun commander! Make a big emphasis on ramp and quick token generation and watch it fly out of control! If you would like any help with cuts or any questions let me know!

This deck is pretty low to the ground for Xenagos, good job.
Yavimaya Hollow - Protection
Ancient Tomb > Temple of False
Bonders' Enclave > Sanctum of Eternity - Is the reason it's in your deck to prevent opponents from removing Xenagos during your turn prior to combat? I don't see the use of it in this deck. Perhaps I'm missing something.
Turntimber, Serpentine Wood > Forest - The additional utility it provides late game is key for when you're topdecking/out of gas
Raging Ravine - Manland that can be used as a creature to place a draw effect under late game
Dread Statuary - See above - Or not given your dorks and you want to limit colorless mana?
Myriad Landscape - Ramp - Same issue as above?
Skullclamp - Not 100% sold on it, but I think it could work here given your dorks which can be used as draw for late game, or helps you draw cards when your beaters die.
Berserk - Malignus says hi! Also, works on opposing creatures too. If opponent A attacks opponent B, you can kill their creature and deal extra damage to opponent B. Although I like using it on my beaters or Selvala heart of the wilds for extra ramp.
Deflecting Swat - Counter counterspells, redirect targeted removal(biggest issue in Xenagos so you don't get 2 for 1ed), targeted draw/extra turns, abilities, etc... Too much utility and for free.
Heroic Intervention - Protection for beaters
Life's Legacy - Draw
Harmonize - Draw
Green Sun's Zenith - Tutor for the beater you need to the battlefield
I count 5 sources of draw in this deck, 2 of which are unimpactful, 1 of which is unreliable, the other 2 are good. Do you often find yourself running out of gas quickly especially given your lower CMC?
You run embercleave but no Godo, Bandit Warlord???

@Profet93: I forgot to reply to your question about Finale. Dryad Arbor is a creature with a CMC of 0. So you can play a Green Sun's Zenith or a Finale of Devastation with X is 0 and ramp into Dryad Arbor. That brings extra flexibility to these tutors.
