Talisman of Hierarchy - It's not always about what is big and flashy, but little cards like the talismans, signets, etc. that help smooth out your gameplay are crucial. I really appreciate the practicality of cards like this. When I see these in a list, it lets me know the creator thought about the "nuts and bolts" concerns of the deck.
Plaxmanta - This card is very niche in my opinion, which is why I love it! In the deck I run it in, it does everything the deck wants to do, nothing on it is wasted. While staple cards have their place, I very much appreciate when players take the time to include more unique, specific cards that fit their game plan. In short, I really appreciate synergistic strategies over general "good stuff."
Smothering Tithe - This card is one of a hundred (probably more) examples that I could name of cards that scale. As someone who plays Commander, cards that scale with the number of players are just dynamite. I'm much more likely to run something like this than anything that only affects one opponent. I think the bottom line for me here is value.
In summary, I appreciate practical, synergistic, high-value (effect, not cost) cards and the deck builders that run them! To me, the constant tweaking and comparing new cards to existing ones are what make the deck building side of the game probably my favorite part.

Hello all, I have been playing with the Oko structure deck, that I updated using Affinity For MTG's youtube video, and just bought the Simic Mutology structure deck as well as the Simic Guild Kit, as well as some booster pack cards. I'm trying to combine them into a 75 card deck, with 15 cards I know to take out for 60. Based off the cards in these 3 decks I'd like to build the deck around a constant flow of powerful monsters through the +1/+1 counters, as well as overloading on mana and drawing a lot. Some of the main points of damage right now are Oko who can just turn everything into a base 10/10 and distribute lots of +1/+1s, vorel who can double somethings counters, zegana who gives trample, galloping lizrog which can take all the +1/+1s and double them onto himself, nylea's forerunner for trample, progenitors mimic and miming slime to make clones, and wild born preserver for reach and his +1/+1s. But I also have things like coiling oracle/fathom mage to draw a lot, and gyre sage/maraleaf pixie for tons of mana. So I'd like to just find a good strategy in this mess lol.
The total card list of everything I will have is: (stuff with "x" seems important to me) Creatures: 1 Oko, the Tricksterx, 1 Vorel of the Hull Cladex, 1 Zegana, Utopian Speakerx, 1 Momir Vig, Simic Visionaryx, 2 Cloudfin Raptor, 4 Coiling Oraclex, 1 Cytoplast Root-Kin, 1 Elusive Krasis, 4 Faerie Vandalx, 1 Fathom Magex, 1 Frilled Mysticx, 1 Galloping Lizrogx, 1 Gyre Sagex, 4 Keeper of Fablesx, 3 Maraleaf Pixiex, 1 Nimbus Swimmer, 1 Nylea's Forerunnerx, 3 Paradise Druid, 2 Plaxmantax, 1 Progenitor Mimicx, 1 Protean Hulkx, 3 Spectral Sailorx, 4 Sphinx of Foresight, 2 Surveilling Sprite, 1 Trygon Predator, 2 Vigean Graftmage, 3 Vigean Hydropon, 1 Wildborn Preserverx, 2 Zameck Guildmagex,
Instants: 1 Applied Biomancyx, 1 Disdainful Strokex, 1 Gift of Strengthx, 2 Oko's Hospitalityx, 3 Optx, 1 Prying Eyes, 1 Quenchx, 1 Radical Ideax, 2 Rapid Hybridization, 1 Return of the Wildspeakerx, 1 Voidslime,
Artifacts: 2 Simic Signet,

I really enjoy this deck! And thanks for your comment on mine. I'm a budget player, so a lot of the choices you've made wouldn't exactly work for me. However, I've been really sleeping on that Wirewood Symbiote combo. I have most of the important elves for that to be effective, so I'll be adding that card to the mainboard for sure. I also really like Plaxmanta . I've never seen this card before, and I think it works fantastic in the deck. I considered Bident of Thassa and Druids' Repository before, but seeing it in this deck convinced me to add them.
I think Hypnotic Siren could be a good replacement for Flying Men or Cloud Pirates . It's basically the same thing, but it can be used mid-late game if needed to steal a bothersome creature from an opponent. Jace's Phantasm and Hope of Ghirapur are also 1/1 flying creatures that can be useful mid-late game. I also think One with Nature is good ramp in this deck because of the evasive creatures.

Plaxmanta is definitely a favorite of mine, and an overlooked card.

lagotripha Thanks for the feedback!
I'm also going to try out Judge's Familiar in the one drop, and then potentially something like
to compete in the two cmc slot against Growth Spiral
I've also, as you've indicated, have a bash at putting a first thought for a sideboard together, but there is much refinement needed there.
Thank you for your advice

If you're still looking for ways to protect Animar, Plaxmanta and Siren Stormtamer are good options. Also, if you're okay with combos, the one non-creature card you run can be Weird Harvest . You put 2 into the X and kill and Ancestral Statue and Purphoros, God of the Forge . In other words, you win with just 5 mana and 3 counters on Animar.

Some thoughts: Frilled Mystic , Great Oak Guardian , Mizzium Meddler , Plaxmanta , Mystic Snake , and Selfless Squire all need to reenter the battlefield immediately for maximum effect. You have Deadeye Navigator and Temur Sabertooth only for that, with 0 tutors for either. I suggest either investing in more cloudshift effects, or taking most of the weaker of those out.
I also see Guardian Project as reasonable, but also strongly suggest Soul of the Harvest as in the utility creature deck, a high p/t blocker that also generates card advantage is very worthwhile as an investment.
With Ghostway and Eerie Interlude , Eternal Witness and friends are a very good investment. additionally, with so many low power dudes, Reveillark is amazing, and can help reduce tension for some of the issues with my first point, as reveillark triggers when it leaves, returning the desired dorkos immediately. Also consider Thragtusk , as swagboy is hilarious blink value, and can gain 10-20 life easy in a game, 3/3 blockers aside.
While cultivate and kodama's reach are great, in a blink deck, I strongly recommend Wood elves, even in a budget build it can grab the WG tango and cycling land.
Last point, run more card advantage. Mulldrifter can be evoked, the sac trigger responded to with roon activation for 5 mana draw 4 and keep fish alive. Cloudblazer might also be worthwhile though I never tested it myself.

Though, actually, turning Power Matters tribal into Riot Control tribal might not be that bad - snare opponent and beat to death. Possible additions:
