Hey, there's lots of ramp here which makes 39 lands more than you really need. Consider cutting some basic lands for other cards?

Good luck with your deck.

I’d add Guardian Project , Beast Whisperer , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , and possibly The Great Henge for some card draw in the deck. The henge being much more optional since it costs a bit.

Harmonize is another good cheap card draw spell to pick up.

Savage Ventmaw will help produce a lot of extra mana for the deck.

I’d cut creatures back down from 43 to 33 since some of the creatures that are just big bodies like Woolly Loxodon and Grunn, the Lonely King aren’t as necessary for the deck when you can add more stuff into the deck to interact with your opponents and draw cards.

Okay buddy here we go!

I think we need to fix a lot of things here. Ramp is an easy fix, we'll get some more instant/sorceries that get lands because they are safest. Then we'll work on getting more counters on Hallar in more efficient ways. We'll also swap out some of your kicker spells for other kicker spells that do better things.

Cards to look at:

Cards to maybe cut

So with all that I hope you're mana will be more consistant and your draw will be more powerful, then you'll be able to dump more counters on Hallar and snipe some wins. If not, your kicker spells will have more impact because they'll draw or remove or ramp. Focus on the 2cmc ramp cards, then swap out the kicker spells, then get those draw cards in there.

Here's a Deck you can also look at

Maybe cut avenger because you're only running new cradle and any other way to abuse tokens? I know you mentioned in the group chat you want to win through overrun, but with a non-token, timmy, based commander, you should just win through beating face.

Why is Arcane lighthosue in the deck, what do you need to target of your opponents?

Cut Rhonas's Monument for another land, Yavimaya Hollow , a forest, or any other good utility land such as Miren, the Moaning Well . Maybe Deserted Temple to untap new cradle and nykthos? You had land issues (although I havent played against you enough to know) and monument isn't impactful enough.

Cut steel helkite for Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger , other ulamog, or World Breaker . Both are cast triggers (as you so how crucial that was against blue), worldbreaker is recurable and colorless (for those rare, relevant moments). I understand helkite's appeal but I feel having to connect and pay mana on top of having to wait a turn assuming no haste, assuming you even have enough mana afterwards.

While this is a harder cut, it depends on the meta I suppose, cut Spearbreaker Behemoth for Boundless Realms / Traverse the Outlands . Behemoth is nice, but exile, sac and bounce effects are all prevalent in the meta.

Cut Omnath, Locus of Mana for Greenwarden of Murasa ? Not sure of what to add for this cut or the following cuts.... Recursion is nice, gives you a benefit to it's death as well (synergy with miren moaning well). Other good options of recursion include Creeping Renaissance , Seasons Past or even Preator's Counsel. Omnath does nothing at all except be a mana sink. Recursion is nice to rebuild after a wipe

Cut Bramble Sovereign for Grunn, the Lonely King . Bramle is fun, political and a cool card all around. But it is winmore. Add some synergy with Gruun.

Cut Apex Altisaur for Terastodon - All that mana to kill 1-2 creatures? Eh. Granted Terastodon isn't much different. Like I said, these last few cuts are flexible. But I've always had a soft spot for him.

Other fun but unfortunately not "on curve" for Goreclaw is Shaman of Forgotten Ways and Somberwald Sage is just straight gas.

Maybe a Dryad Arbor to synergize with G-Sun?

Oh, you guys have some great ideas. My basic desire for the deck is swinging hard with Grunn, the Lonely King or Gorilla Berserkers . Alpha status on the berserkers or bestial fury on the king. I have 3 of Grunn because I wanted to get him out as often as possible. Kind of the Cesar of the deck, all hail the king baby. Not sure yet how I'll implement changes. Equipment and even high tech stuff would be interesting as it is Planet of the Apes. I thought ramp was needed and some of your suggestions were nice. I've been out of Magic for a while that there are so many cards it can overwhelm. Definitely gonna look into some Roar of Challenge , as it will be great with Berserkers or any other big apes. The Lands and land enchantments . . . hmm so good. Not sure what I'm going to do, but I do appreciate all your help here Agrothorn and aogoli. I might finally get my Apes deck running.

Have you considered ramp? I believe this could help: Wild Growth with other art style, Pillar of Origins , Myriad Landscape , and maybe Rhonas's Monument .

Soul's Majesty or Colossal Majesty may help to draw more if you judge it necessary. And if you like the draw idea, this may enhance it Summit Apes .

Sheltered Thicket has two types, mountain and forest, so it helps with Kird Ape . Maybe you can focus on your lands to surprise your adversary with Primal Bellow , you may try Ash Barrens or Evolving Wilds . Or, following the shout style: Roar of the Crowd .

Also, one Gorilla Titan and a few Hooting Mandrills forms a good team.

Why 3x Grunn, the Lonely King when you can use some variety, like Ancient Silverback ?

I dont know if you would like to mix apes with equipments, like with O-Naginata , or high tech things like Infiltration Lens , and Skullclamp . It would be nice and funny.

In fact this deck can use a lot of cards ideas. So I believe you will maintain it opened for new ideas you may have for quite a while.
