Hey Poly_raptor,

Thanks for your comment and upvote.

You're probably right in saying that I need to cut a few lands, I have more ramp cards than usual as well as having higher lands than needed. I think I should take out all the lands you mentioned instead of adding any more, because there were some cards that I forgot to add, which were Helm of the Host, Cathars' Crusade and Regna, the Redeemer, as well as Quest for Renewal which you mentioned.

This means that I need to take out 6 more cards, which probably be The Great Henge (seems more like a win-more card), Finale of Devastation (X has to be 5 or more to make it actually worthwhile in this deck I think), Sublime Archangel (If I have enough creatures for this to be worth it, I probably should be attacking with all of them anyway), Unclaimed Territory (I'll keep Cavern of Souls, but I think I can cut this one because I only have 20 Angels, not including things that can make Angels like Decree of Justice and Serra the Benevolent, which may be a problem as well) and Farseek (I probably have enough ramp cards).

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon

PS: I also forgot to add Worldly Tutor and Enlightened Tutor, so I'll take out Savage Summoning and Scout's Warning for them.

Helm of the Host would be good for this. Make more copies. Spark Double would work too.

What's up JP? Not that bad of a start, I think I'm tracking all your combos, but why Helm of the Host? I didn't notice a line with it. I'm thinking just to strap it to Tishana? Would Blade of Selves be better? I know its technically slower, but it would be faster as its 3 mana cheaper.

Would also recommend Laboratory Maniac or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries if you're going to swap for blade.

Also would recommend slotting in atleast 3-4 artifact/creature removal spells just to have as options in case of opponents running blood pod variants or stax pieces. Or maybe bounce effects like Unsubstantiate could be better for tempo plays?

Its not budget at the moment but Swarmyard should be here if you can swing it.

Also Since you are running the token doublers Renowned Weaver I think is the only other mono green option that makes spiders. However, you could run Helm of the Host and Mimic Vat which would put token copies of your spiders on the board for doubling. There is also Birthing Boughs which makes shapeshifters that are spiders. Riptide Replicator does too but its over all investment is high.

Helm of the Host for combo with godo or value with etali

Maybe Embercleave to go with Godo

Maybe add High Market to stop theft effects

Arcane Signet > Prismatic lens

Gauntlet of Power and Wheel of Fortune

Endless Atlas 100%

There is a 2 drop red card I think that adds mana (I think for dinos and gives them haste, I forgot what it's called, probably from Ixalan set, look it up)

Command Beacon

TOP!!!!!!

You have a lot of haste outlets, cut need for speed as it's the worst redundancy.

Outpost Siege in your maybeboard should go in. Even without you using top in response to the trigger (to ensure you always have something to cast and get the free card draw), its good stable card draw that you will need.

Mind's eye most def, you NEED card draw. I can't understate this

Oh they are only 5/4 when blocking or being blocked. Otherwise they would be 4/3.

Helm of the Host muddles with the clause on the legendary rule, so you can't have the 2nd copy out, but the tokens it creates are not legendary. So, you can get more and stack the +2/+2 from each one.
