Looks like a fun start! Reminds me of a Slippery Bogle or Gladecover Scout deck! Could be worth exploring, even if it's a few copies in the sideboard for more controlly matchups. Young Wolf could be another option if you're running into a lot of removal.

In terms of sideboard, it depends on what you find yourself up against Natural State can be really good against a mirror match and Affinity. Epic Confrontation and Cartouche of Strength for more targeting, as it also buffs your creature. Battlefield Scrounger is another overlooked finisher, as you can "recycle" your used spells if the game goes on for longer. Fists of Ironwood should also give you more resilience against sacrifice effects!

I love Yisan, absolutely my favorite commander. Just a few suggestions. Yisan is usually fast enough that something like Sword of the Paruns wouldn't really be necessary, you should be versing enough to have blockers or just flat out take damage until your board state is ready to decimate with that big ol' Craterhoof. Skyshroud Poacher has too high cmc for my taste personally to eventually tutor for an elf. Also have you had good success with Magus of Candelabra?

Removal like Lignify, Natural State, or Return to Nature are cheap and fantastic to use. If you're ok putting a bit more money into the deck, some stax pieces like Trinisphere, Thorn of Amethyst, or Sphere of Resistance are really good at slowing your opponents down without really slowing you down since you're usually generating tons of mana anyways.

Balaam__ Try and go for a lower curve. In competitive formats, two costing removal like Return to Nature, Wilt and Naturalize are harder to cast and slower than one mana removal such as Nature's Claim and Natural State. Try and use as little mana as possible for your removal, as you'll be able to do more things you want, and will need to hold up less mana.

Hard to pin down a favorite with path, swords, trophy, abrupt decay, natures claim. I do have a pet removal card in Natural State though. It may not be my favorite overall, but it is a good fringe card that I usually jam in for extra removal that most won't.

Torchic I’d say it looks good. Obviously considering counters to Shadowspear will depend on how prevalent the card is in your meta - in mine the card sees play all the time. Natural State is very efficient, and since you’re mainly going to be targeting the spear it’s probably fine. I’ve take to running Return to Nature instead, there are a lot of decks running Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath and Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, and the extra flexibility to deal with those cards really helps, but it would be strictly worse if your meta doesn’t run any cards like that.

BRG24 thanks for the suggestion, I will take that into account. I looked at some of the top competitive decks and most do run the Adanto Vanguard I will find a good counter for the Shadowspear how about a card like Natural State ?
