So you missed some stuff you should definitely fit in: Blessed Respite, Encircling Fissure, Knight-Captain of Eos, and Slaughter the Strong. Similarly, Blunt the Assault seems like a must given your lack of life gain and your wincon requiring a large life total. I'd also look into more life gain in general.

Clinging Mists, Druid's Deliverance, Frontline Strategist (especially to increase the Eos synergy), Inspire Awe, Obscuring Haze, Pause for Reflection, Spike Weaver, and Spore Flower are also worth considering.

I've recently learned about Smoke, and was about to order it and some other new cards for decks. Now, I've added Gaea's Touch to that order.

Smoke is just ridiculous for Moraug, Fury of Akoum. There we have the red commander that mitigates its drawback.

Touch and also Primal Order will go into Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma. Order is a great damage source if you play few enough non-basics.

I also bought a Obscuring Haze. It's super-cheap for a free spell. Same goes for Inkshield.

Oh, and Imposing Grandeur is a great draw spell, especially for Moraug. They say the average CMC for commanders is sinking lower and lower, so it becomes even better with a CMC6 commander.

Monomanamaniac: oooh, I didn't realize Obscuring Haze was this cheap. I'll definitely get some! I like the Farseek + snow duals idea a lot, if not for this deck. I just finished a similar deck with Saskia the Unyielding at the helm, and that could really benefit from that. I'd be able to add six of the duals there, all of which I could find with farseek. That's awesome. Thanks a lot for these suggestions!

Hey, this deck is neat, but it's not really my area of expertise, so I'll just say Farseek is great, especially if you decide to upgrade your lands, maybe with those dual type snow lands. Obscuring Haze seems excellent in this deck, it gives you a free block and your commander gets bigger still. It's by far the most underrated free spell. I'd maybe swap them out for Warden of the Woods, and Edge of Autumn. Anyways I like what you're doing, it seems really mean, watch out for Voltron lol.

Oh goodness me this would be so much easier if you weren't good at deckbuilding

I guess copying Obscuring Haze doesn't do much, so that one can be cut probably.

This isn't going to lower the amount of cards you have in the deck, but Swarm Intelligence is pretty much infinitely inferior to Thousand-Year Storm .

In Search of Greatness isn't amazing, it's not bad by any stretch but it'd definitely not amazing. I'd kill it.

Again, this won't lower the amount of cards (TWLAC from here on), just improve the quality of them: your ramp's average CMC is too high. I know it's easy to think "Oh, these ones put more lands into play and are ergo better for my strategy of casting massive stuff", but in the long run cards like Farseek , Nature's Lore , Three Visits , Rampant Growth , Into the North , and the signets like Gruul Signet , Izzet Signet , and Simic Signet will do better by you.

TWLAC but your card draw can be better considering you have Simic at your disposal. Stroke of Genius , Tatyova, Benthic Druid , Pull from Tomorrow , The Great Henge ... the list goes on.

Sorry I couldn't help cut very many cards, and I love the deck ;)
