Creature — Beast
When Protean Hulk is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, search your library for any number of creature cards with total converted mana cost 6 or less and put them onto the battlefield. Then shuffle your library.

I've always found there are 3 ways of going about winning a CEDH game. Linear combo style strategies like Ad Nauseam or Protean Hulk that have 15+ pieces of interaction but typically fold if key pieces get countered/destroyed/extracted. Asymmetrical stax like urza and derevi. Then there's decks like Yisan and Captain sisay prior to the paradox engine ban that win by getting so much insurmountable value onto the feild that no one can do much of anything; Chulane fits into that style. I'm not sure if I can really add much more to this deck to make it better.

I have a few suggestions to help make the deck more competitive. Cloudstone Curio is an easy way to go infinite with your dorks or with Cloud of Faeries / Peregrine Drake . Flash and Protean Hulk would be a great addition, plus it synergizes with your Academy Rector . I run Aetherflux Reservoir as a backup win-con if something goes wrong with Labman. I also prefer to run Finale of Devastation over craterhoof because of how it synergizes with infinite mana.

Protean Hulk should likely be here too

Honestly if you want a deck to grow with you, Meren of Clan Nel Toth is easily one of the best commanders to start with. It makes your deck very resilient and forgiving to your mistakes as a more casual/beginning player and later can be upgraded to a competitive level.
Another one that is relatively good casually and has a high ceiling for growth is Varolz, the Scar-Striped . His abilities can make for quite a few types of decks including aristocrats style (sacrificing creatures for value), voltron style (making your commander as big as possible), or even playing huge creatures to either reanimate or scavenge. As you get into the more competitive realm he becomes a Protean Hulk deck that can win pretty wickedly fast despite not having access to Flash .
No doubt The Gitrog Monster is the strongest gb commander competitively, but I would advise you avoid him like the plague as a new player. He takes a lot more knowledge of the game and of his specific strategy to be any good. Wait to play the frog until you are more comfortable with gb cards and have done some studying on how the deck works and it's strange but extremely effective win-cons.

In a singleton deck never remove tutors. Only add better ones. Intuition acts as a secound Buried Alive and its instant speed. You may also want to consider a Flash Protean Hulk line just in case your commander is shut down. It looks like you already have most of the cards that would make that viable.

thanks for your input! I love your decklist. It seems to be the direction that I’m planning on taking mine. I have a decently powered meta but so I made my deck as competitive for as cheaply as possible and ended up where I am.
Oh I was looking over your decklist, you should add a Dark Ritual for those juicy turn 1 wins. T1: black land, Dark Ritual , Viscera Seer , Entomb Protean Hulk , and then Reanimate him so you can sac him and go through your “wombo combo”

So, I play a Alot Of Ghave. And as far as card draw goes, I suggest Dark Confidant , Generous Patron and another combo draw like Grim Haruspex or Generous Patron . Even Tymna the Weaver is about the best Phyrexian arena effect at 3cmc. Also, you're missing Young Wolf and Strangleroot Geist . Undying combos hard with Ghave and these should really be included. As far as speed goes, Doubling Season and primal vigor aren't that fast anymore. Cedh is a turn 3 format now, so your aim should be close to winning, being relevant or stopping faster decks by turn 3. And I don't see this deck doing that. I'd also go a Protean Hulk package since you're already running some of the pieces and that'll basically turn this list into a turn 3 deck. Even turn 2 with the right hand.
