If you are looking to remain in mono black, change Nylea, God of the Hunt for Cover of Darkness.

I recently added 2x Nylea, God of the Hunt, 4x Lys Alana Huntmaster , and 2x Joraga Warcaller. Seems like the deck is still playing very fast and still having no problem getting everything out and setup by turn 5 easily. I am working on a sideboard to include some creatures who can block filying, destory artifacts/enchanments, and a few other things as well if needed. I will get that post in the next day or 2 as well.

Feels like the deck does a lot of drawing of cards, but most games I don't have a ton of cards in hand. My commander is pretty efficient at playing cards, and Venser's Journal often doesn't gain me much life, and I usually am not running into max hand size issues. So I originally thought Wizard Class would be a good fit, because it keeps my max hand size mod, and benefits me when I draw cards, which is where this deck really seems to be leaning currently. But my big threats are often chump blockable, and so I thought some sort of evasion enabler would be a good idea. As of the moment of typing this, I realize Nylea, God of the Hunt and Kodama of the West Tree might actually be great in this deck. But I have decided for the time being to lean into the card draw mechanic and so I removed Venser's Journal and I'm adding Diviner's Wand. I think this makes sense as there is a mana sink for me to draw cards as well as giving a creature evasion. Plus, with it on a creature that gets a +1/+1 counter from card draw, this seems like it could get really big really fast.

Since you're going more green than colorless in this deck, you may want to replace the Ancient Stirrings with Once Upon a Time, since you could whiff on the Stirrings.

I think a couple copies of Sylvan Scrying would be your best bet to get the lands you need. Since Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth is Legendary and you'll be able to find lands, I think two copies would be plenty, especially if you work in Sylvan Scrying. Since you are running green, I'd consider replacing two copies of Yavimaya with 2 copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. The Boseiju's are great since they have that channel ability.

You have a lot of "play extra land" abilities... too much IMO. The Arboreal Grazers are great early game, but are dead cards later. Unless you run a single copy of Assault Formation. That wouldn't affect your other creatures, but it kind of takes the deck in a different direction. However, if you have tons of mana, you could really boost your creatures through that last ability.

I think you need to find the right balance though playtesting for your Grazers/Azuza/Explore.

I'm not a fan of Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip for what it does. If you have the $$$ Green Sun's Zenith is way better. You'd probably only need to run 1-2 of those, since they recycle themselves, and you can replace the other two copies with Regrowth for renewal or Heroic Intervention for protection.

Lastly, I think you should try to find a way to fit in one or two copies of World Breaker. He does so much work, and if you're dumping lots of lands, you can bring him back from the graveyard.

Not sure what the right answer on your 4x Amulet of Vigor. They are key to get the deck going fast, but later on they are dead cards. Maybe bring it down to 3 copies or even two and try to work in a copy of Bow of Nylea (great all around support card all 4 modes are good for you, and the static ability is amazing with all your trample) and maybe Nylea, God of the Hunt.

Hope this helps give some ideas... The short of it, is that I think you may have too much "play an extra land" and need to watch the potential for late dead cards. Otherwise, it looks great. Primeval Titan is perfect in a deck like this.

Okay comments after yesterday! I would still cut: Glorious Sunrise and Early Harvest as I don't see a ton of value in them here.

Good adds could be: Worldspine Wurm Hammer of Nazahn Treeshaker Chimera World Breaker Nylea, God of the Hunt

Hi EVENcast!

Thanks for the suggestion! I kind of forgot about this card (Branching Evolution) since it was released with Jumpstart at an absurd price, but now that the supply meets the demand that card is actually pretty good for the deck. I might consider it for the next upgrade, I still need to play the deck more with the recent card I've added before making a swap. But if I had thought of it during my last upgrade of the deck I would have probably replaced Unbound Flourishing with Branching Evolution.


To answer your question about those 3 cards and why I removed them from my deck:

Unbound Flourishing

Don't get me wrong, this card is powerful and has a sweet art. I love it, or rather I loved it. This card is good with X spells and X abilities, but the more I upgraded this deck the less card I had that could work with it. I hold on to that card as much as I could, but after a few games I found out that it was most of the time a dead draw because I either didn't have any spell or abilities that worked with it or had already cast them... I was sad when I removed it from my deck, but it is for the better. I still want to build a deck where this card could really shine.

For example, right now in my deck, it can only work for 12 Hydras. Two of them are for Monstruous abilities that don't even work when copied and for no spells at all. So in the end, only 10 cards work with this and the second ability of the card will never be used. Too little chance of being used is what made me decide to cut it.

Zendikar Resurgent

This is also a cool card, but the CMC/MV is too high in my opinion. This card comes up too late in the game when I have already cast a bunch of Hydras so both effects become a little bit useless. I found out that I preferred cards with smaller CMC/MV that draw me cards like Elemental Bond and Garruk's Uprising rather than this one because those keep me going during the game, transforming my creatures into cantrips really early on. The mana doubling aspect is pretty good too, but I can ramp so easily that I don't need that much many at any time so I didn't feel it had any impact on there too. Also, it is a big magnet for removal so spending 7 mana for nothing always feels bad when it gets removed before you can even use it.

Nylea, God of the Hunt

This deck needs evasion in the form of Trample or being unblockable. I did cut Nylea, God of the Hunt, but I'm thinking of putting her back in just because of Ohran Frostfang and how Trample and Deathtouch work together. She was doing fine in the deck, I just found that sometimes she feels like a dead draw when you have other Trample enablers already in place and I never found myself using her ability that much. But I did like the fact that she was Indestructible.

Right those are the cards I'm using to give Trample to my creatures:

And those are the cards to make my big Hydras unblockable:

  • Glaring Spotlight > because it can allow me to fight my opponents' creatures even if they have protection on them and protect my board or allow for a final swing (or sometimes just a "player removal" swing).

  • Bellowing tanglewurm > because I just love it and found it really useful, but if your meta is full of green decks, maybe not a good idea for you. But could probably be the one to be cut if I bring Nylea, God of the Hunt back.

And that is all!

Thanks again for your comments I greatly appreciate it and I'll go take a look at your own Gargos list too soon!
