Council's dilemma - Starting with you, each player votes for wild or free. Reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a creature card for each wild vote. Put those creature cards onto the battlefield, then shuffle the rest into your library. You may put a permanent card from your hand onto the battlefield for each free vote.

I started EDH with Captain Sisay, so I know formulaic endgame-focused decks. I've found myself enjoying more midgame decks, random Timmiestuff that proceeds to the endgame but does so in incremental pieces, pulling tutors and replacing with Selvala's Stampede And splashplay random spells with more options than win-now creature combos. This is where I can start to argue: what is truly acceptable to call a wincon?

I think R&D needs to do some more R&D'ing is all. Scaling cards are healthy for the format & they should keep doing it. Scaling cards often have a high demand to them that shows up as a hiked up $$ value. If a card speeds up the early game based on the amount of opponents, I see that as a good thing. I love Selvala's Stampede as an example of a fantastic scaling card & one of the few decent post-Cyclonic Rift responses in the game. I play a bunch of decks that actually become hamstrung with less opponents because I play the game with the social (multiplayer) aspect in mind & my brews reflect this. I think to a certain extent this is sometimes an attempt to separate formats as there is always this outcry about "made for EDH" cards when cards have scaling potential but are released in general WoTC products.

Hey there, I'm a big fan of the premise of your deck. I've always liked goreclaw, she's a fun card. With that said, I do have some suggestions:
Those are the big suggestions I have to make at first glance. Here's some other good options for card advantage if you ever find yourself running out of steam.
Hope this all helps, and good luck!

Hey! I'm glad you liked Elder Gargaroth in action!
I don't like giving options for opponents with Selvala's Stampede, but, if you're using it, make it so that all creatures are relevant/powerful when flipped with the Stampede (so no Sakura-Tribe Elder, for example).
As always, I like to know how this deck is going - I even playtest it every now and then to know how it is to be playing the best cards for Ghired, Conclave Exile. Cheers!

I was now able to do some playtests with the current set. I still changed some more cards.
- Elder Gargaroth for Keeper of Fables
Elder is crazy good, drew it 2 times, and it gave me so much options. for example with token doubler and Elemental Bond or with Quartzwood Crasher.
- Exploration for Chrome Mox
I dont like the Cardloss from the mox, and when I have good card draw, I can get rid of additional lands
- Selvala's Stampede for Tendershoot Dryad
Still not drawn, but this card seems like crazy good. Tendershoot has to less synergy, as it doesnt trigger my 4 power card draws.
- Growing Rites of Itlimoc
Flip for a Forest
probably dumb, still not drawn. I probably have to switch it for a "Ramp" slot. Right now this would probably Sword of Hearth and Home
- Kenrith's Transformation for Swords to Plowshares
I like that kenrith is denying a commander, and no life gain. But you lose instant speed. Still not sure which better
- Jeska's Will for Farewell
Its always easy to cut a Boardwipe, and mostly not the best Idea...2 boardwipes left...but I want to test how Jeska works in this kind of deck.
- Emblem of the Warmind for Rampaging Baloths
Cheapest "all Creaturs get Haste" card in MTG. Cutting Baloths was not easy and maybe Omnath, Locus of Rage is the better cut, as it is more expensive and harder to cast. never drawn actually. but haste is insane for this deck. so lets give it a try.
- Gisela, Blade of Goldnight for Titanic Ultimatum
I still waiting for Gisela, so never played it. But for Budget, Titanic is still a very good card. It won me games or saved me from loosing at certain points due to lifelink. Gisela seems more powerful and easier to cast.
- Rishkar's Expertise for Garruk, Primal Hunter or Rampaging Baloths still not sure.
Feedback to new or rarely played cards:
- Quartzwood Crasher is insane good. Thematically, and also its easy to get like a 10 or 15/15 Token, which you can copy with ghired, after that its gonna be snowball. Surely one of the best cards in this deck. Similar with Elder Gargaroth
- Selesnya Eulogist: Surprisingly good card, I rarely drew it beside the fact thats it a day 1 card of this deck. But targeting creatures from other graveyards (or the own) to prevent reanimate or similiar, and getting blockers is very good!
Cards I am uncertain:
- Wulfgar of Icewind Dale: he is nice, as I have some cards with attack triggers. But maybe he is too expensive. If he goes out, Rampaging Baloths will come back
- Hofri Ghostforge: Only played once, with already strong board. Here he is really nice. best with ETB creatures like Dockside Extortionist with this one i was most sceptical, but I think I will keep him.
Still the deck has a lot of protection, and I am not sure if it too much, but as Ghired is quite expensive, I will right now, not cut a indestructible spell.
About your utility Lands. yeah Gavony Township might be a cool manasink. But Right now I dont have it, as I put it in another deck. also i have a lot of utility lands right now. Kessig wolf run I removed, as having Trample seems no problem in my last plays.

Yeah, while I was posting that I was thinking of how I need to add Selvala's Stampede back into my deck, I don't really know why I ever took it out (maybe because I added a buttload of mass removal instead?) not really sure. It is one of the best cards around to keep in-hand for inevitable Cyclonic Rifts. My other rift insurance is usually just having Ruric Thar, the Unbowed & dmg multipliers on-field, with which I've hilariously killed players before it resolves.
As far as Creative Technique goes, it is nice that it doesn't depend on hand-size, although I often have a fatty or 2 stuck in-hand that I don't really want to hardcast. Since Creative Technique gives me 2 shots & I get to choose my opponent, I usually just choose an opponent with a strategy-set that has a very low likelihood of resulting in high-end threats (I can always find a value-engine or aristrocrats deck to pick on :) ), while I know this deck has BIG ones, so I've yet to actually witness the scenario where I only see a couple of 2-ramps & my opponent sees a Tergrid, God of Fright Flip
