I'm glad to help ThePman. I don't think you'll have to remove a creature, though. Another good thing about Parcelbeast is the Mutate ability. It works a bit like bestow only it joins the creature in the graveyard if it gets destroyed. It would give you some protection for cards such as Kalonian Hydra against cards such as Vampire Hexmage . The cost of the ability also makes it cheaper than some of your card draw and ramp.

EDIT: update: So I have been messing with this deck for quite some time, and I decided to change a few things. First of Commune with the Gods, as good as it is in this deck, ended up burrying oue lands a lot of the times, so I had to replace it with 4 copies of Grapple with the Past. For now, it has been working really well. I added 2 copies of Eternal Witness for our Vesperlark in the late game. I've also added two more copies of Deep Forest Hermit. Unfortunatelly Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite ended up being pretty useless in most of the games, and would just sit in my hand for no reason, so I've moved it to the sideboard vs creature based opponents.

I also changed the manabase a bit. One Gavony Township for the late game works really well with Kalonian Hydra. Once we have these two cards on the board and a little token army ready to bite our opponents, just pump all of our creatures and let them get bigger with each swing.

The initial idea remained the same, and I have to say this deck is just so much fun to play. It's also pretty decent in competetive league, so I'm really looking forward to it to my local FNM.

If you have any new/interesting suggestions, please let me know, thanks a lot peeps:-)

Hej abby315,

thanks for the amazing tips. I tried adding a playset of Seasoned Hallowblade but soon figured, that the mana consistency is pretty bad. So I added my mana-fixing dudes back, and added two Seasoned Hallowblade which (for now) seems to work really well with the deck.

I also added one more copy of Commune with the Gods, making it a full playset, but decided to keep my 3 Fauna Shaman, because 4 just seemed a little too excessive. In order to make Fauna Shaman useful, you need one on the board, to tutor for your vesperlark combo, but with four copies I often times ended up with 2 or 3 in my hand, which seemed a bit slow. I also have 3 copies of Eladamri's Call so if I don't have it in my hand, I can just fetch for it.

After giving it much thought, I cut my one copy of Doubling Season as it is really too expensive and slow for this deck. The initial idea was having Sekki, Seasons' Guide and/or Kalonian Hydra on board by turn 4, and then just casting Doubling Season on turn five and attacking, thus making some crazy counter and token multiplication haha. However I left one copy of Anointed Procession in the deck, because it just seems so good, and with four copies of Commune with the Gods it seems pretty easy to fetch for it, and the pay-off is just great.

Also, I have to disagree with the Triumph of the Hordes, because it really did end games by turn, and it's very effective vs life-gain deck in the late game. It just seems really efficient and is a overall finisher.

Anyway, thanks for the comment, was very helpful and much appreciated:-)
