Somberwald Sage Discussion

+1 the deck looks pretty good. Low to the ground, got some interaction and instant speed protection. I would try to add a few more pieces of draw to maintain gas.
Beast Within - Removal
Berserk - Fun with malignus, infect creature, removal of opponents creatures, ramp with selvala, etc...
Deflecting Swat - Redirect targetted removal/draw/extra turns, counter counterspells all for free
Momentous Fall - Draw in response to removal
Return of the Wildspeaker - See above
The Great Henge - Draw, ramp, lifegain
Hull Breach - Removal

Interesting deck +1
What is your meta like?
Proud Wildbonder - Seems too unimpactful for 4 mana
Essence Warden - Whats the purpose of this?
Beast Whisperer - Seems cool, I tried him in my build. Does he get a chance to stick around long enough to draw you atleast 2-3 cards?
Ravager Wurm - Is this meta against maze of ith?
Shivan Wurm - Reusing ETB effects or something I'm missing? Seems weak
Voracious Cobra - Gosh this card brings back memories from my childhood. Curious how it's been for you, seems like a card they need to burn removal on if they want a chance of attacking you unless they go wide
Windstorm - Meta?
Fog - Meta, if so, why not get the new green fog that came out recently?
Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma - Trample and ramp
Heroic Intervention - Protection
Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - Ramp and draw
Inferno Titan - Removal
Kogla, the Titan Ape - Removal
Deflecting Swat - Utility! Counter counterspells, redirect targetted removal/draw/extra turns. Very powerful
I hope the suggestions werent too overwhelming, I just didn't see that much draw and I figured that adding more never hurts.

Personally not a huge fan of mana dorks in Xenagos. I ran them for a while but found that they were a little low impact. They bring the curve down, sure, but they are way more fragile than land ramp like Skyshroud Claim or the like. Also, it almost feels wrong to be running these puny creatures in a big beater deck.
The only mana dorks I run anymore are Somberwald Sage and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds (If you can even classify her as such... she does only tap for one when she's the only thing out) since they add way more mana and impact the board much more at any stage of the game. That being said, stuff like Skullclamp, Pathbreaker Ibex and Kessig Wolf Run play very well with them so it's not a bad way to play.
Overall I like the list, but for my personal Xenagos deck I opted to go a bit bigger, and rely more on more reliable land ramp spells for that classic, huge stompy feel. However you build him, the God of Parties has the huge personality that's perfect for commander!

You can use Somberwald Sage to cast a creature for its Mutate ability.
Mutate is not an activated ability, it is an alternate casting cost. Though it functions a bit differently than a regular creature spell, the rules for Mutate specifically clarify that the targeted, mutate spell is still a "creature spell."
As such, you have satisfied both of Somberwald Sage's requirements--you are casting a spell and that spell is a creature spell.
Likewise, Sprite Dragon will not trigger off a mutate creature spell.
702.139a Mutate appears on some creature cards. It represents a static ability that functions while the spell with mutate is on the stack. “Mutate [cost]” means “You may pay [cost] rather than pay this spell’s mana cost. If you do, it becomes a mutating creature spell and targets a non-Human creature with the same owner as this spell.” Casting a spell using its mutate ability follows the rules for paying alternative costs (see 601.2b and 601.2f–h).

So my first question relates to Somberwald Sage and if you can use its ability to pay for mutation cost (eg. Insatiable Hemophage mutate cost 3, Now i have read the EDh on gatherers website about Somberwald Sage and I am pretty sure I cant ,as mutate seems closer to an activated ability. But I just want clarification if I am right that I cant do this.
My second Question is that if Somberwald Sage doesnt work how does Sprite Dragon interact with mutate, (i.e. does Sprite Dragon count mutate as a Creature spell. Again I am inclined to say he does as only creature have the mutate ruling .
I know this seems a bit obvious but I am developing a mutate deck and wanted clarification on some of the interactions could work ,maybe ? (i.e. use Somberwald Sage ability to mutate Insatiable Hemophage onto Sprite Dragon etc.
Thanks for your Help
