Misconception on Aren't You Getting a Little Briared?

Hi! I really like your take on one of my fav commanders of all time :) Don't mind me taking a thing or two for my own brew. I'm especially fond of your Scepter of Celebration

A little food for thought:

Aspect of Mongoose is a card I usually really like, but in a voltron-y deck it seems like a bad choice as it disables your own spells you would usually target Skullbriar with. How about running Canopy Cover instead?

Often I feel like aggro strategies suffer a lot mid- to lategame if lacking card draw. Some additional cheap, but reliable options are Snake Umbra, Rishkar's Expertise and Mask of Griselbrand

If you want a lategame finisher to possibly take out everyone at the same time: Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord does it.

Feel free to check out Skullbriar, the Walking Grave | The Terminator !

That's true, you do probably need some protection. Thankfully, green loves hexproof. Also, you're 100% right about Neverwinter but it's still not a terrible deal.

yeah i think i'm missing some card draw here too. tried to incorporate some with Abundant Growth and Brainstorm but i'd much prefer some more consistent draw. i had Snake Umbra in a previous version (which went heavy on totem armor), which at least gives a little more value than Ophidian Eye for the cost, but it felt like this deck wanted a lower mana curve and by the time i get a few turns past a three cost, Ancestral Mask should be a finisher. that said, what do you think about the benefit of the extra 1/1 on Snake Umbra vs the extra creature for forced sacrifice fodder on Tandem Lookout? What about a transmute effect like Dizzy Spell to find a one or two mana? Kinda flexible single card seek for later in the game.

That's a lot lol sorry

Hunger of the Howlpack, Crashing Drawbridge,Elephant Guide, Snake Umbra would be good in this deck. I would take out Oakenform and Hardened-Scale Armor for Snake Umbra and Elephant Guide. Muscle Burst won't really do anything for the deck. I'd cut that for maybe Whispersilk Cloak. Lead the Stampedeand You Meet in a Tavern would also be great for the deck.

More know-it-all heads up's:

Asceticism won't give Mr T hexproof while gift-attacking (nor will the various protective Instants, besides Vines of Vastwood, unless you cast them before giving him away)

Snake Umbra will give card draw to other controllers too, but you might have intended that anyway

Frontier Warmonger won't give Mr T menace while gift-attacking

I think Heartwood Storyteller should probably be cut from this - you have way more noncreatures in here, essentially you're giving cards away with it. I'd replace it with something like Sixth Sense or Snake Umbra - unless of course you want to be friendly and political with the table.

Family's Favor is another possibility for draw if you think Thrun needs more protection, but I doubt it does.

Breath of Fury and Aggravated Assault could be good fits for finishers, especially given how Savage Ventmaw goes infinite with the latter. I would recommend some ways to give your commander indestructible. It seems like you want to do damage to him a lot, but you can only do that 3 time each turn before he dies without a buff. Darksteel Plate, Hammer of Nazahn, and Shield of Kaldra come to mind as equipment that fill that role, but you could also go the totem armor route. Cards like Bear Umbra or Snake Umbra both buff and protect your commander.

As for ways to get additional value, cards like Eternal Witness, Creeping Renaissance, or Regrowth let you get your stuff back from the graveyard, which can definitely be useful.
