  • Since you are playing Arbor Elf, Old-Growth Troll and Utopia Sprawl, you need to be 100% sure that you have Forest in your opening hand. You are now playing 12 Forests, which don't guarantee that. I would suggest that you go up to 16 at least.
  • Aspect of Hydra is not a good card in your build. It works well only in a mono-green deck. Remove them. Ghor-Clan Rampager is a better pump and also a good creature with trample.
  • Commune with Nature is a bad card. If you want a better alternative, play Once Upon a Time, but best would be to play none of it - it's only relevant in combo decks.
  • Trample works well with Deathtouch, since you need to assign only 1 damage to each blocker and the rest to the player. Try 1 Bow of Nylea and 1 Basilisk Collar.
  • Return to Nature is a situational card which may end up dead in your hand. Such cards are not to be played in main deck, only in sideboard.
  • Don't play Thrill of Possibility. You don't have any synergy with it. Instead of spending 2 mana to get to cards you want, play cards you want.
  • Colossal Rattlewurm is a 6/5 trample for 4 mana with some upsides. Play some 2 Ramunap Ruins instead of a Basic Mountain to support it.
  • Explore is questionable. I suggest you remove them. Add extra Arbor Elf and you have one free slot.
  • As was already mentioned, 1 Stonebrow, Krosan Hero should make it into the deck.

MartinEMcArthur on Can Zur, Eternal Schemer’s ability …

Let’s say I have Zur out already, and then I play Authority of the Consuls. An opponent targets the enchantment with Return to Nature. If I play Zur’s ability to turn the enchantment into a hexproof creature in response to that, would Return to Nature fizzle out?

Profet93, thank you for taking the time to check out the list and offer your suggestions!

I'm going to try my best to articulate my opinions of said suggestions:

-Rishkar's Expertise: I do enjoy this card quite a bit, and did originally have it in the list. It eventually got cut because the floor was too low for a 6 mana card; and I opted for a similar effect in Return of the Wildspeaker because it's one mana cheaper and has extra utility since it can help push through alpha strikes. I do feel like this deck could benefit from a bit more card advantage though.

-Pir's Whim: I actually completely forgot this card exists, I think this is a perfect swap suggestion, thank you!

-Traverse the Outlands: I totally get why you're suggesting this card, I think I personally just tend to shy away from more conditional ramp, removal, and card advantage; since typically if I'm desperately needing one of those effects I don't want to have to rely on satisfying an extra condition in order to achieve it. I think otherwise Traverse the Outlands could totally find a home in this kind of deck.

-Collector Ouphe, Manglehorn, Reclamation Sage: Collector Ouphe and Manglehorn are definitely great cards to include in this deck. My main hesitation with including them is because this decklist was made with the intent of having it be a bit more casual and less "feel bad" for when my playgroup wants to play with lower powered/more casually oriented decks. I love the idea of including them though and am adding them to the Maybeboard for further consideration! In terms of Reclamation Sage, it was in the decklist initially but ultimately got cut over more flexible pieces such as Krosan Grip, Beast Within and Return to Nature as I typically feel the need to have some options for instant speed removal; and I have a few pieces of creature-based artifact/enchantment removal that can target multiple things.

-Nissa's Pilgrimage: This is just an objectively better card than Cultivate in a mono-green deck, thank you!

-Yavimaya Hollow: Intriguing card, I'm definitely interested in testing it out!

-Turntimber, Serpentine Wood  Flip: I generally have an aversion to these flip lands. I totally get the arguments for playing them, I've just never felt inclined to play a majority of them. I'd be willing to give this one a shot in the list though to see if it exceeds my expectations; especially since it's so on-theme!

-Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma: I completely forgot about this guy, I'm interested in testing him out and am swapping him in over Giant Adephage; which was really just in the deck as a 'fun' pet card anyways.

-Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Somberwald Sage: I don't know how I forgot about Shaman of Forgotten Ways. Thank you for such a great suggestion, I slotted it in instead of Llanowar Tribe for now. Somberwald Sage I'm less sure of including at this point in time. I'll put it in the Maybeboard and keep thinking on it.

-Siege Behemoth: An interesting suggestion, I'm not sure if I'll find a home for it in the deck just yet but I'm adding it to the Maybeboard to consider!

-Berserk: This would be an incredibly fun include, I just need to find something to cut. It'll have to live in the Maybeboard for now.

-Life's Legacy, Greater Good: Since I'm truly a Golgari player at heart, and love playing around with sacrifice and my graveyard, these cards were definitely in consideration when I initially built this deck. I eventually opted for just Momentous Fall and not Life's Legacy because Momentous Fall can be cast at instant speed which allows it to be used in response to removal to help with rebuilding. If I had more synergy with sacrificing creatures baked into the deck, and/or more ways to utilize my own graveyard, I would definitely be including Greater Good. I'm adding them to the Maybeboard for now, especially since Greater Good may just be too much card advantage to turn down.

Thank you again for such considerate suggestions and for taking the time to look over the list!

This is a super fun little combo deck! But it can get shut down pretty easily. I'd suggest putting some key Commander pieces in that you're missing... and thankfully there's a TON of things that work with a land-based deck archetype like this in those colors.

First off, you need to complete your Cultivator combo with Splendid Reclamation for getting all those lands out of your own yard in a very big way (Cultivator probably becomes the biggest thing in your game at this point)!

Centaur Vinecrasher or Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar are superb alternate or additional beatsticks for Cultivator with tons of synergy with your commander that also dig themselves out of the graveyard after they get immediately removed like in my games!

Terravore is nice if you never hit Cultivator in your games (or it gets hated out).

Constant Mists basically you get eternal fog in a deck like this whenever you want if it doesn't get countered.

Entish Restoration, Dig Up, and Beseech the Queen for synergistic tutors.

Kagha, Shadow Archdruid, Elvish Reclaimer, Grisly Salvage, World Shaper, Circle of the Land Druid, Stinkweed Imp, Winding Way, Life from the Loam, Scapeshift, and Satyr Wayfinder for digging through the deck faster while also rotating lands. Life From the Loam is ESPECIALLY GOOD for its dredge ability in this deck so you can keep casting it. Scapeshift is the single most powerful cycler you could run but it's very $$$ and doesn't synergize completely with this deck (it's more for landfall decks, but it can still work with this too).

The utility lands Witch's Cottage, Mortuary Mire, Memorial to Folly can help get your creatures back out of the 'yard.

The utility lands Witch's Clinic, Rogue's Passage, Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, Wasteland, Field of the Dead, Thespian's Stage, Restless Cottage, Boseiju, Who Endures, and Takenuma, Abandoned Mire would all help your deck's overall resilience and ability to deal with threats.

Either Abundance or Rishkar's Expertise could be a game-ending bomb for you. Rishkar's is great if your commander has enough power. You can draw a ton of your deck, likely hit a tutor you cast for free, then if your hand is flooded with lands you discard down to 7 putting all those lands in your 'yard making your commander even bigger! Abundance isn't as synergistic, but is basically a creature tutor spell for Cultivator Colossus if you decide to not run any other beaters or utility creatures.

Assassin's Trophy for instant-cast targeted removal of EVERYTHING.

Tear Asunder and Abrupt Decay are less-good Assassin's Trophy but at least Decay can't be countered.

Casualties of War for when you need to get rid of a lot of different pests that turn.

Return to Nature for instant-cast targeted removal of Enchantment/Artifact or Graveyard card.

Drown in Filth for a land-synergistic targeted removal that gets around indestructible.

Terror Tide for land-synergistic boardwipe that also gets around indestructible.

Nurgle's Conscription, Froghemoth, and Bojuka Bog for some enemy graveyard hate.

Rain of Filth for a MASSIVE spike in mana for that turn.

Worm Harvest for generating a TON of tokens off of the lands in your 'yard.

Titania, Protector of Argoth or Rampaging Baloths for much, much bigger tokens.

Gitrog, Horror of Zhava and The Gitrog Monster for super frog-land-pseudocycling synergy!

Brawn since you're putting things in your 'yard anyways you might as well give your commander and other beatsticks Trample for free! Trample has saved me so many times in games. No reason not to run it in this deck tbh.

Erinis, Gloom Stalker, Ayula's Influence, and Old Rutstein for more synergy with your commander's ability.

Life / Death for making an army out of your lands or pulling something out of your 'yard.

The planeswalkers Nissa of Shadowed Boughs and Vraska, Golgari Queen can give you alternate win-cons while also being synergistic with your commander.

If you don't need more combo stuff and just need another big beatstick alternate for the Colossus it's hard to go wrong with Yargle and Multani's power (plus the stained glass alt-art is sick!). But unfortunately it doesn't come with the cool yard recovery abilities of the other beatsticks I mentioned and doesn't have trample or evasion, but it does have more power than Emrakul!

I'm rewatching Big bang theory and come across this deck so I have to comment. Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, pur, pur, pur....chance would you be interested in the following...

Return to Nature > naturalize - Strict upgrade

Swords to Plowshares/Path to Exile > condemn - Upgrade

Vines of Vastwood > titanic growth - Upgrade as shroud is key to prevent 2 for 1s

Heroic Intervention > Augmentum Armor - You have too much equipment, you need more creatures IMO, but having this swiss army knife of a card for protection is extremely useful

Generous Gift > Oakenform - The latter is begging to get 2 for 1ed and it's not even a good aura. If you're gonna use an aura, atleast get one with totem armor like Bear Umbra.

Yavimaya Hollow > Any tap land - Protection. Your deck is about speed mostly and taplands don't do you any favors. You're playing green with only 2 colors so it shouldn't be too hard to get your mana right

Puresteel Paladin from maybeboard > equipment of your choice

Let me know what you think of each suggestion, Sheldon. Also, cool background for your deck.

enpc on Slivers Commander Primer (looking for help)

There area few things that stand out for the deck.

The first is that you don't have much low ot the ground ramp. I get that you're running a sliver deck, however with the addition of cards like Birds of Paradise, Noble Hierarch and Ignoble Hierarch it helps to get some early game (and flexible for a 5 colour deck) mana down. Your land base isn't terrible, but I would look at adding a few more shocks if you can (focus on the X/G ones, so in this case Temple Garden) and potentially one or two of the tri-colour fetchable lands. Then adding Three Visits means even more value can be had.

Another thing that stands out is that you don't have a lof card draw. Your commander gives slivers cascade sure, but since a lot of the rest of the deck is control you don't typically want to cascade into removal that you may want to hold up, or especially counterspells. I would look tor try adding a bit more raw card advantage and especially pieces that let you get waht you need (i.e. a few more tutors). I would also recommend Green Sun's Zenith - you have a lot of powerful slivers that it can get, but it can also get gemhide/manaweft sliver so this helps with your ramp consistency.

Lastly, your control suite is quite high costed. For only having 4 counters, Cryptic Command is a very blue heavy card and would potentially server better as something cheaper. Stuff like Anguished Unmaking is also generally going to be better than Mortify, but I would also look at Swords to Plowshares and then removal like Nature's Claim, or even Return to Nature. They're slightly less catch-all, but 2 cmc removal is much more playable than 3 cmc removal.

Small upgrade but swap the Naturalize and Wear Away for Return to Nature, Nature's Claim, or Unravel the Aether.
