Deck looks great! Ezuri is such a cool commander and was my first deck as well. One card I didn’t notice in your list that I feel deserves a place is Mystic Reflection the card is made for a deck like this. Playing it after casting something like Avenger of Zendikar or Hornet Queen is so much value but it can also be used to turn off problem creatures your opponents try to cast, such as Thassa's Oracle by turning them into plant tokens. It’s a card that definitely warrants testing.

In the card creation challenge, I got inspired to create a legendary elephant skeleton. That's what I came up with, and I simply adore the design.

It goes infinite with Maskwood Nexus, Hornet Queen and/or Avenger of Zendikar, but a 3-card combo is fine, I guess ;)

Thoughts on the card?

RecReyna on Atla Palani, Nest Tender - (Egg cheats)

There are several cards that seem like odd inclusions are Urabrask, Heretic Praetor, Rukh Egg, Roc Egg, Marauding Raptor. Urabrask because you don't want to be playing cards, the plan is to cheat them right? If you exile a creature card then hopefully you have the mana to play, eliminate the risk. You could put in the other urabrask, Urabrask the Hidden. The eggs cards do look like a good idea, especially since you also get a token from them, but Atla makes eggs already and maskwood nexus would help make all creatures eggs anyways. There are better options to include than eggs that you could get Atla. For Marauding Raptor, you play a good amount of dinos, but does it get big enough to warrant a slot? If you were able to get all your dinos out (not thinking of maxwood nexus) it would be a 22/3. That's big, but not a slot in the deck big. I would be interested in hearing your reasoning for it's inclusion. Other creatures you could replace it with is Godsire, Hornet Queen, Worldspine Wurm. Let me know what your thoughts are!

This actually looks pretty solid. I would replace Ant Queen with either Hornet Queen or maybe Hornet Nest. However, if you want to keep that 5 CMC from Ant Queen, I would recommend replacing it with Spring-Leaf Avenger. Another thing, you seem to want a lot of little guys, but it doesn't look like you have anything to capitalize on them. A good card for that is Overrun.

Create X 1/1 green Insect creature tokens with flying.

This would be what some may consider a flavor bend. Traditionally, green hates creatures with flying. Some exceptions exist, such as Hornet Queen and Destructor Dragon, but the exception only serves to define the rule, as they are both creatures who still fit within the sphere of green, flavorfully and mechanically.

But, a non-creature card that makes solely flying based creature tokens, in mono-green?

Blasphemy. It may be a full-on break, honestly.

Let's see a land, a la Command Tower, called Dice Tower for a D&D set.

If you need to know what a Dice Tower is, it's basically a vertical box with wedges and platforms that tumble your dice on the way down, to randomize and - most importantly - contain your die for their rolls.

Spore Frog, Viscera Seer, Disciple of Griselbrand, and many others are considered staples for Meren as they turn her engine to stack experience. Spore frog is an mvp of the deck as a whole. If you have a self sac outlet, create armies with cards like Hornet Queen, and Mycoloth.

Dragon Throne of Tarkir, Overwhelming Stampede, and others like it are great win cons

Victimize, and Eternal Witness, or Golgari Findbroker is broken

One last thing, with self sac you can use horror creatures like Faceless Butcher in a way that permanently exiles the creature and is reusable in a pretty cheap manner. Basically you sac the creature before the removal effect happens, and the effect that gives it back happens before the creature is taken away leaving it permanently exiled

wallisfaceThanks a lot for that detailed comment ...youre absolutly right about the Mortician Beetle but my thounght behind Scute Swarm was to have a 1 drop that has a good potential to get stronger so its not useless in later stages of the game. (i'm not playing competitive so eventhough moder tends to be over at turn 3-4 thats mostly not the case in my games.) and Hex Parasite is useful in a lot of matchups and at the very least i get to take my -1/-1 counter from Persist ;P Yes Giant Adephage,Hornet Queen and Living Hive are cards that normally need a lot of ramp but my plan here was actually to get the to the graveyard and reanimate them with Persist and also i love the idea to reanimate Grist, the Hunger Tide with Unearth since she is a 3 Mana insect creature when shes in the graveyrad.
