I’m fairly new to the game and new to edh, my apologizes if I’m not in the right section.
I’m currently looking at the precons and there’s a few I’d like to try but right now I think that getting just one is probably smarter in case I end up not liking the format.
In all the precon I looked at, these are the one that my lgs still have. I’m gonna list them one by one with a quick reason why I’m interested by them.
Commander - Devour for Power - The Mimeoplasm: I do like the idea of dumping stuff in my graveyard to basically make my commander into whatever I need for a particular situation, I recently bought a small collection with a Sheoldred, Whispering One, Mortivore, Golgari Grave-Troll, Lhurgoyf and Hermit Druid.
Commander - Political Puppet - Zedruu the Greathearted: The idea of casting curses on my opponents and giving them creatures to screw them over seems terribly funny and diabolical. Switching my Steel Golem for Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre would be a win for me even if I end up losing the game.
Commander 2015 - Call the Spirits - Daxos the Returned: Building an enchantment deck seemed fun and I also have cards like Sorin Markov with his -3 and cards line Debt to the Deathless or Exsanguinate in my collection for alternative way of winning the game.
Commander 2015 - Seize Control - Mizzix of the Izmagnus: It’s probably not the main goal of the deck but casting instant and sorcery with Talrand, Sky Summoner or Murmuring Mystic and having Crackling Drake on the board to swoop in with a bunch of flying drakes and birds on the board made me laugh.
Commander 2015 - Swell the Host - Ezuri, Claw of Progress: Ezuri just looked so badass and flooding the bord with a bunch of 2 and 1 power creatures and adding stuff like Craterhoof Behemoth and Beastmaster Ascension or using Triumph of the Hordes or even buffing them up with Ezuri + some proliferate triggers looked like sometimes that could be very scary for the table.
Sorry for the long post but There’s so many choices that I got lost and confused on what could be better a first deck.
Thanks for the help.

With Eternal Witness + Genesis + a sac outlet you could play the eternal witness, on somebody's endstep sac the ewit then on your upkeep bring it back with genesis, bring back your removal spells, sac the ewit again then play it with Karados ability to bring back another card

Sounds plausible. IMO, there's not much in elemental tribal that's all that great for edh. So it'd effectively be a 5-color interactive deck with a handful of ways to tutor out the entire combo.

Jeweled Lotus is awful in this circumstance due to your commander being so color intensive. Its basically a 60 dollar lotus Petal. Personally, this seems very hard to assemble and ideally you want cards that are both proactive and counter active. Things like Mana Drain that both counter a spell and give you a heap of generic mana are the types of spells you want to be running. It's an interesting combo. Maybe something like Hermit Druid would make it a bit more compact.

Thank you zAzen7977!
You are right about graveyards as I have a Hermit Druid - Necrotic Ooze combo player in my group. My graveyard hate now includes Grafdigger's Cage, Planar Void, Bojuka Bog, and Scavenger Grounds. I have a Leyline I could throw in too but I think I prefer Relic and Lantern as they enable Mox Opal.
You've given me much to tinker on just in time for Halloween games!

Thanks for the suggestions.
I hadn't thought of Hermit Druid, but I'm not sure he would do enough with the current mana base. I will keep it in mind for once there are less basics.
Razaketh, the Foulblooded is a great suggestion, I will try to find a place to fit him in.
As far as the buff strategy on Devoted Druid goes, I would probably go with enchantments over a spell again. So Carapace, Street Savvy, and Web would probably get in before Wax. (I just found out about two of those cards while doing a search because I forgot what Carapace was called.)

Have you considered doing an old school Hermit Druid line? With something like Dread Return and Razaketh, the Foulblooded or perhaps the buff strategy with the Devoted Druid you got in there with Wax.

That is bold. I don't know the logic for it, don't see any reason to have so many non-basics for two colored decks, unless again you're doing Hermit Druid self mill.
