Thanks for the suggestions, Housegheist!

Great observation about the synergy between Shelob, Dread Weaver and the Commander. I'm putting her on my buy list! Same with Tear Asunder.

I'm not a fan of too many land fetches simply because they take way too much time, and this is already a defensive deck, so games are going to drag. After the update, I'm at 36 lands and 8 mana cards (9 if you count Deathsprout). I'll test it out a bit and see if another land fetch like Kodama's Reach or Rampant Growth could find a place in!

While Shelob's Ambush is very thematic, I'm still a bit unconvinced about this card. Instant deathtouch at 1 mana is great, but the food token seems redundant. I'll see if it will work.

Interesting suggestions about Horn of the Mark and Maskwood Nexus. I'll see if I can get these cards and test them out.

I like your list. Have you considered using Bow of Nylea and/or Ohran Frostfang? Tear Asunder is a wonderful flexible removal which exiles rather than destroying.

As we are using green and you said you where land screwed… why not using more land-tutoring classics like Kodama's Reach, Farseek, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Nissa's Triumph, Skyshroud Claim, Rampant Growth,… our commander costs a lot of resources…

And: not just for flavour but i would use Shelob, Dread Weaver as well. You geht the Big shelob trigger, make a food-copy of a opponent’s dead creature then exile it with small Shelob for Graveyard hate and maybe get recur it for yourself later…

Horn of the Mark could do some work too.

Edit: i forgot to mention Shelob's Ambush which is a highly flavourful card!
