Coward_Token on Oko spoiled?

The Great Henge has some weird tension on the surface at least. It rewards you for having a single big creature with (1) ramp, which you'd probably would rather have to cast said fatty and (2) an ETB draw & pump trigger, which encourages you to build a deck that casts many creatures rather than a few big ones.

Still, I like it, and if you compare it to Beast Whisperer & Guardian Project I think it's fair to say that it'll give OK mileage if you can consistently cast it for , or at least . Creatures with 5 or more power yet CMC 3 or less like Wayward Swordtooth and the recently spoiled Vantress Gargoyle seems like the most straightforward way of achieving that, but I could also see dropping something less huge on one turn and then giving it a boost with an Equipment or Aura on the next so that you can cast the Henge on the turn after that. You could also use a pump spell/ability which gives more than 1 power per mana and cast the Henge on the same turn as the pumping. Accumulating +1/+1 counters is another option, and there's probably a few more I haven't thought of. A neat puzzle design with many solutions.

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.

Aluren , Abundance , Guardian Project and Intruder Alarm .

These are musts IMO, then, I see you are running no ramp at all: Simic Signet , Azorius Signet and Selesnya Signet and since you are running green you have access to: Cultivate , Kodama's Reach etc etc, you could certainly cut off some creatures to make this bad boy even scarier, and in a more competitive way, there is Food Chain + Misthollow Griffin / Eternal Scourge since that will give you infinite draw and land drops. My version is by far any competitive, I made a Druid tribal EDH with him, so if you want to catch up some ideas, here is the list! :) Tales to be Told

Inkmoth on Yeva Draw-Grow (Budget)

Chhris: The line has been removed and every other viable line available as of yet has been described in the Kill Loops. The Card Selection categories now reflect the custom categories in the decklist.

These changes were mostly for cosmetics and clarity, but stay tuned as I will be working on this in the coming days. Cards currently being tested: Root Maze , Guardian Project , Krosan Grip , and Emerald Medallion .

Hey! Nice list! I have a few ideas from looking at it.

Happy gathering!

Have you thought of Guardian Project as another form of card draw?

Also Guardian Project allows all of your morphs to draw you a card, since they technically have no name and therefore cannot share their name with any other card on the battlefield.
