As a general rule, setting a price for the deck is much more helpful than setting a price per card. Becuase if a really strong card which would help your deck out immensly is $15 then you can pair it with a 50c card compared to 2x $7.50 cards which are so-so. Just food for thought.

As for suggestions, you need more ramp and draw card in general. Especialy since you don't currently have much draw card effects, I would be favouring land ramp over mana dorks. Between Rampant Growth , Three Visits , Nature's Lore , Farseek , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , Skyshroud Claim , Explosive Vegetation , Circuitous Route , etc. there are a lot of good, relatively cheap options (that are good cards to have in your collection).

MLS91 Yeah, I get that it can draw a card, but there are tons of 1 and 2 cmc ramp in the deck that can be dropped after playing Skyshroud Claim and paying the same cmc for tapped mana doesn’t seem worth the ability to cycle it to me.

Used to run Nissa, Who Shakes the World and just cut her because once i’m at 5+ mana I want to be playing big bois, not more ramp. That being said I do run Traverse the Outlands and that is just because it’s pretty easy to just grab ALL of my basics with it... that and it’s a power matters deck and I wanted to put every “equal to the greatest power” kind of card in I could. Either way, she’s always in and out of rotation. I’ll slot her into the maybe board to represent that.

Priest of Titania is great, but both Karametra's Acolyte , and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds get me huge mana more reliably. Don’t really need another big mana dork.

Protean Hulk is basically for grabbing Loaming Shaman to shuffle my graveyard back in. With an instant speed sac outlet ( Momentous Fall , Greater Good , etc.) I can do it whenever I need to keep from decking myself. It can also grab any of the big mana dorks and removal ( Reclamation Sage , Kogla, the Titan Ape ). Last but not least it can grab various win cons (most notably Mossbridge Troll ) while also just being big enough that it doesn’t feel dead outside of those uses.

As for the rest, I have all of those in a competitive green deck I am working on and didn’t want to buy em all again, nor did i want to have too many tutors when I can just draw through my deck instead. That’s way more fun!

Thanks for the ideas! Some are certainly worth it if you want to tune the deck up a bit.

I think what Housegheist is getting at is that you also have the option to draw a card with Migration Path over Skyshroud Claim . Secondly what's the point of targeting specifically forests, you're not running Dryad Arbor . Also you're in mono green what fatty 2 drop are you gonna play after Skyshroud Claim 'ing?

other things to think about:

Nissa, Who Shakes the World - she doubles your mana clear beats out any ramp spell

you're running big creatures, cut Protean Hulk unless you're using him as a combo piece which im not seeing

between all the elves is there a reason you're not running Priest of Titania ?

why don't you run Natural Order , banned in French ehh but not multiplayer

also you should go ahead and pick up the Green Collection, you'll get Worldly Tutor and Sylvan Library those alone are worth it

Housegheist

I’m not sure I agree. Skyshroud Claim brings lands in untapped. I really focused on using ramp with either the least initial cmc investment (like all the 1 cmc dorks), or bringing lands in untapped to reduce that investment. If i have 4 mana open and i play Migration Path my turn is over, not so with skyshroud, same thought process goes with using Rampant Growth , Nature's Lore , or Three Visits instead of Kodama's Reach or Cultivate . They all put one land out but any of the former do it much cheaper, as little as 1 mana after things are said and done, compared to 3 for the latter.

Thanks for the suggestion though, and for checking out the deck.

Nice think. Looks like superfun!

the only thing i would suggest swapping is Skyshroud Claim . In your Deck Migration Path is a straight upgrade as it's grants a little more versatility... otherwise i would use the mana-cheaer Kodama's Reach or his brother Cultivate

It’s dope. It’s quirky tribal, which is the best kind. I have one awesome suggestion, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed . Oh also Golgari Charm offers great value. Perhaps Butcher of Malakir ?

I would also set a priority to improve the mana ramp. Your spells are lacking in ramp so Cultivate + Skyshroud Claim , maybe even Harvest Season ? Also the cheaper your rocks the more effective they will be for your gameplan.
