If you are still looking to improve the deck, I've also been working on this deck for a long long time (when the card came out). I've always like the voltron big swing style as it was unique to commander, but my deck is solely for 1v1 and does not work very well in multiplayer. Here is a list of cards that I would recommend that have worked wonders for me.

Budget options

Tainted Strike - 2nd berserk (if you're ok with infect)

Belt of Giant Strength - after you scavenge, 2 mana equipment, free equip for another 8 power

Not of This World - my secret tech, after you make it big it's free

Veil of Summer - with this style of deck protection is very important

Sylvan Safekeeper - free protection that they constantly have to respect Wild Shape - flexible, mostly used for hexproof or trample

Jarad's Orders - the 2nd best tutor after buried alive, because there will be 2 creatures you always search for and it's on curve. you always look for Elvish Spirit Guide and Phyrexian Dreadnought. Phyrexian Dreadnought goes to graveyard and Elvish Spirit Guide goes to hand, exile, scavenge, swing with 14 power on turn 3-4.

Unmarked Grave - entomb #2

Demonic Embrace - you can entomb this and give you commander evasion and +3/+1.

Bramblewood Paragon - play this turn 2, minor buff counter, and gives trample because Varolz, the Scar-Striped is a warrior

Rancor - buff and trample, you need to get through

Destiny Spinner - one of the few ways green has to fight counters

Solidarity of Heroes - 2 mana double the 12/13 counters

Wild Growth - it may not be a creature, but it does get our commander out on turn 2

Mausoleum Secrets - 2 mana instant demonic tutor, you sac a dork in response, go find Phyrexian Dreadnought/Death's Shadow, protection spell, or in 99% of cases that I use this one is Berserk

Non-budget additions

Elvish Spirit Guide - serves 2 purposes, the Jarad's Orders trick and making all your turn 2 plays turn 1 (like Sylvan Library), you can also end the Survival of the Fittest chain with elvish spirit guide to do the same trick

Sylvan Safekeeper - free protection that they must always respect, it's very good

Collective Brutality - I value discard highly in 1v1. It also allows you to ditch your scavenge target from your hand to the graveyard while seeing the coast is clear. But in multiplayer, less useful.

Lightning Greaves - haste and protection, yes plz

Dismember - takes care of many of the early problematic targets

super non-budget

Hatred - 1 card win with commander

Necropotence - sculpt your hand for next turn kill

Cards that I would recommend reconsidering/taking out

Harmonize - a bit too slow imo

Arbor Elf - the amount of targets you actually have isn't enough to make it consistent

Asceticism - a bit too slow, you only care about the creature you scavenge on so in terms of mana efficiency something like Sylvan Safekeeper or Lightning Greaves

Quirion Elves/Devoted Druid - we want to go 1->3 mana, so we get our commander out on turn 2, this doesn't help to do that

Thanks on the upvote and the suggestions. You've made the right call by choosing Sunastian, he is very good at ramping and fun to play.

Last week I've been testing the deck, and the eldrazis have not been as brilliant as I thought in the beggining. The one true hero has been Etali, Primal Storm, I recommend you to run it in your deck. That been said, Not of This World does not go along with the core of the deck, but Spellbreaker Behemoth and Spearbreaker Behemoth are great additions for the gang. About War Cadence, I live the polytical plays you can make with it, but when it comes to smashing, this deck has a lot of ways to trample everyone. (Last time I managed to play Overwhelming Stampede and copy it, BRUTAL)

Thanks a lot for your support, see you around!

I'm working on a pod of Legends-led decks that are somewhat like this, I also settled on Sunastian for Gruul. It's mostly budget Eldrazi atm, but there are a few things in your build that I'm taking a look at!

Not sure if you need it in your meta, but maybe a Warping Wail to protect yourself from wipes? Not of This World works with some of your biggies to protect them, and Artifact Mutation is really funny if you've ever got Blightsteel out. Not sure if you've got lots of countermagic in your pod, but Spellbreaker Behemoth can help you resolve your big stuff, while Spearbreaker Behemoth can help protect big stuff. There is also Vexing Shusher, but again, very much requires people to run counters against you. War Cadence is a weird card that can make your creatures very hard to block if you've got a board, but it can also be used to tax blockers on someone else's turn, IE if they aren't attacking you.

Cool idea, not being the archenemy from the start of the game can be a nice change, and it doesn't mean you can't end up winning later.

Hey, I am trying to add Alchemist's Refuge, Intruder Alarm, and Not of This World to my binder. Each are from the mystery booster set, which the code I looked up was (MB1). Tappedout is kicking them back saying that it cant find it, when I went to figure out how to add the cards myself, I can not interact with the page at all. It mentioned needing to be an upgraded member, which I am, but do you also need to be a supporter to submit cards? Sorry if I am asking the wrong person, just every time I see anyone on this site asking about adding cards, you always respond. Haha. I am also fairly certain you wrote the tutorial yes?
