What about Seer's Sundial for card draw? Mind's Eye is better, but if you are overall lacking, this would help. You could consider Momentous Fall in addition to the Soul's Majesty you already have there. If you want to completely cycle, there is always The Great Aurora , but it's not really cost effective. One more option is Sensei's Divining Top .

If you wouldn't mind returning the favor and you are able, I would appreciate it.

Savra, Queen of the Golgari - Commander of the first EDH deck I built from scratch, which is still a formidable attrition style deck. Runs a convoluted, but very resilient, infinite combo as an emergency finisher.

Toshiro Umezawa - Commander of my highest-rated deck here on EDH, I've put a lot of time into making his list run smoothly and the primer I have here is the result.

Neheb, the Eternal - Commander of my most fun deck. He makes so much mana, and can have unbelievably explosive games, finishing people off with almost nothing in play. My favorite moment with this deck was killing a player from 40 with the exert trigger of a Glorybringer .

Moonlight Bargain - Such an amazing card, so underrated. Until it's recent release in a commander product, I'd never seen it played by anyone else.

Nissa Revane - The first planeswalker I pulled from a pack, and still my favorite planeswalker. Is she good? No. Do I care? No.

The Great Aurora - Why does no one run a mono-green board wipe? This thing is fantastic. Ramp a bunch, float some mana, cast this, then rebuild your board before anyone else gets a chance.

Archangel of Thune - Gotta represent my love of angels somehow, and this card is just a friggin' beast, easily one of my favorite cards. It's got it all - excellent art, good flavor text, and a game-ending ability. I've got a sweet stained-glass alter of one that looks absolutely amazing.

Permeating Mass - It's my dream to one day build a Permeating mass first strike deck, with the goal being creating a field of as many permeating masses as possible. Someday.

Yeah! I was thinking about using enchantment and artifact for draw and such. Because originally I was going to play Kaalia, but I think i like the KT boys better! I already have cards like The Immortal Sun , Vanquisher's Banner , Caged Sun and maybe even Oketra's Monument since most of the creature cards will be White. my favorite card in green is absolutely The Great Aurora , along with Praetor's Council. Im a white mage at heart so I love graveyard recursion or just protecting my stuff! (I like not having any cards in my graveyard LOL) I'll post my deck after I work on it

How does The Great Aurora work for you with this few lands? I don't see it being that good

@TheRedGoat Thanks for your suggestions and sorry for my bad englado.

Usually I need 2 creatures to kill Grothama, All-Devouring for the first time in a match. Personally I'm fine with that and don't think, that we need either Bow of Nylea or Grafted Exoskeleton .

The deck is built to draw a ton of cards and it pretty much always does. The only thing that can get in our way is, when we keep a starting hand without something for card draw, we don't draw anything similar and our creatures (which were to kill Grothama) will be removed. In this case a cheap early card draw spell like Life's Legacy or Hunter's Insight could be really useful. (When i built the deck, i was also considering those two but simply forgot to put them to the Maybeboard.

The Great Aurora - I've never seen this card before and I'm not quite sure if we need more lands on the battlefield, when we can already cast a 9 mana spell. The card draw is pretty sweet tho combined with Psychosis Crawler . (And you are right, the deck makes it easy to have a handsize of 20+ cards.)

Vivien's Invocation - In my opinion See the Unwritten is simply better.

Death's Presence - Could be pretty neat, but I'm not sure if I would cut antyhing for it.

Pathbreaker Ibex - Great card, can also be tutored for with Fierce Empath (I will definitely add it to the 99 in the future!)

Berserk - Already in the deck. Love the card... used it one time on a buffed Mossbridge Troll to hit for 50 and draw almost my whole deck with Greater Good .

Dragon Throne of Tarkir + Surestrike Trident - I almost cut all equipment cards because they were too slow. Only Darksteel Plate and Lightning Greaves are still in the deck.

Ravenous Slime - Most of the time our commander is dead before we end our turn. And if she is still alive, then we have some protection in back up. So we don't need Ravenous Slime .

I'd never suggest to play Grothama, All-Devouring just to have her on the board. Only play her, if you can make use of her ability in that turn or can protect her until your next turn.

I don't like Trollhide / Blinding Fog - When you need more protection for our wurm Blossoming Defense is cheaper and better.

Verdant Sun's Avatar - Personally I like the card, but I never felt needing it.

Gigantosaurus / Crash of Rhino Beetles / Phyrexian Dreadnought - Every creature in my deck has either a useful ability or is hard to remove. The 3 beater u mentioned are only big and die to easily.

I can only recommend Grothama, All-Devouring if you like card draw and smashing face with big hitters. She definitely has a unique ability which you can't find on any other card in magic. Beside Barktooth Warbeard , Grothama is my favorite EDH deck.
