Thanks for the input! After thinking about Blightsteel Colossus being in the deck I threw both Grafted Exoskeleton and Triumph of the Hordes in. What the hell. I like the idea of Steel Hellkite replacing Impervious Greatwurm but am saddened, as it is a really BIG green stompy. Utility > stompy though. Out are Endless Atlas and Basilisk Collar.

Monstrous Onslaught is a thing? The words 'as you cast' are beautiful; Phytotitan does not return to the battlefield at the beginning of my upkeep, or at all, really. Other suggestions you made were great and were able to find homes, with Llanowar Tribe replacing Yavimaya Elder, Return of the Wildspeaker in for Soul's Majesty and Steel Hellkite steps up for the non-Impervious Greatwurm.

Aspect of Mongoose in instead of Mortal's Resolve as more durable protection

Looking forward to the next game. And looking for a new home for Impervious G.

Also liking the combo of Mortal's Resolve for 1 Gargos Trigger, also making it indestructible to kill off any deathtouch threats, then hit it with Bounty of Might .

It may be a sorcery speed combo, but it'll remove 4 threats pre-combat and make Gargos huge for turn and an attack phase.

Needs more Fortitude

Frog Tongue is a cantrip

Also consider Yavimaya Enchantress and Aura Gnarlid . They get big.

Also also: I've been Wombating for a long time, and I can tell you with certainty that when you play against people, they are going to try to kill your boy, because they lack both culture and sophistication. Hexproof and Indestructible instants like Ranger's Guile , Vines of Vastwood , and Mortal's Resolve are pretty clutch.

Seeing another Wombat deck pleases me greatly. Godspeed, friend.

A creature like Rot Wolf might be good as a recurring source of draw -- Just pump it up and they either get poisoned or you draw a card from them blocking it. That's the big pick I'd suggest, as it's a threat, can draw cards and infect, while oppressive, can win you the game easily.

I see you have Ranger's Guile -- I always love Sheltering Word in decks with big green creatures along with that. Withstand Death and Mortal's Resolve give indestructible as opposed to hexproof if you need it.

If you're looking to ramp quickly, you might want to consider land auras that get you a little extra like Fertile Ground or Wild Growth -- Sadly the ones that draw you cards only seem to let you get mana of any colour which is sort of useless in mono-G. Bequeathal might be an idea in the early game, pop it on a chump blocker and get some draw.

Aura Gnarlid and creatures like Wandering Wolf might be an idea -- If you can pump those up, they're virtually unblockable. Silhana Ledgewalker comes with hexproof too as well as pseudo-unblockable.

Only other thing I could say is to mark Mowu with CMDR in the list so it stands out -- I'm really liking the build otherwise, and as you say at this rarity level it's hard to find good sources of draw, but with some testing and tuning I'm sure it'll be a strong deck to fight against! +1 for good boyes!

Nice deck. I really enjoy the constraint of a genuine Pauper build. +1

As far as suggestions go, Vitalize and Wirewood Pride (I see you already have Timberwatch in there) are two commons that play extremely well with elves and common elf abilities (even in non-Pauper builds imo) and Ezuri's Archers is another great low-mana way to deal with flying, especially early on.

I'm not sure if Deathtouch or targeted destroy is a viable concern for this deck with its need (like most Elf decks) for multiple creatures in play to properly amp-up/combo, but if so both Withstand Death and Mortal's Resolve are decent Pauper options.
