The Great Henge 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

So many awesome things to put into the these decks. With this iteration of the deck, have you considered trying The Great Henge? With your creatures growing fat real quick, you should be able to play it early pretty consistently. It synergizes with your +1/+1 counter theme and keeps the gas flowing.

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.

Also have you considered God-Eternal Rhonas, Blanchwood Armor, Colossification, Harvest Season, or The Great Henge....as for what to replace it would possibly be some instants or sorceries enchantments or artifacts...I was thinking Since this is primarily a creature (Elf) deck they can do the heavy lifting. Elfs just often need Help to pull the trigger hence the recommendations. The strongest suggestion would be Nissa Revane Apologies for the double comment

Hey zuharran thanks for the suggestions! I'll go over what I think of them:
Mana Dorks: I actually like them, you can draw off of them with cards like Regal Force, Soul of the Harvest and Beast Whisperer. Plus, they add to Ashaya's power! I will put in Arcane Signet though, it's to good to pass up.
Board Wipes: I'll definitely put in Boompile. Thanks!
I'll add in The Great Henge and Guardian Project, but personally, I this deck already has a lot of draw power. From Horn of Greed being a discount Beast Whisperer to Regal Force drawing you an obscene amount of cards, this deck can draw cards. But I think you're right, I'll put in some more non-creature based draw power.
Unfortunately, while the deck isn't super budget, those cards have spiked a lot recently, and I'm on a student's budget (very little), so those cards are out my price range. I just have to settle for cards like Shared Summons and Yisan, the Wanderer Bard.
Again, thank you so much for the suggestions. If I could upvote your deck twice, I would. Happy Tapping!

So, finally stopping by to give some suggestions! The suggestions I'll make are based off of optimizing, so if budget is an issue, then some of my ideas may not be very helpful. I'll list out my thoughts in bullet format, so here we go!
Mana Dorks: I personally am not a fan of mana dorks. They are low cost and can give ramp, however they are incredibly vulnerable and are dud cards in the late game. Instead of mana dorks, I'd suggest shifting off of them towards mana rocks like Worn Powerstone, Arcane Signet, and Fellwar Stone. Artifacts are a lot stickier than creatures and more reliable vs destruction cards.
Board Wipes: I personally didn't think there was enough space in my deck for more than 3 boards wipes, but they are important. While Boompile says nonland permanents, it is unreliable at best, so I'd recommend swapping that for an O Stone.
Draw: You have 3 sorcery speed draw cards and one instant speed draw card. They are extremely situational card draw and, I believe, unreliable. The issue with them is that they are reliant on higher power creatures and/or multiple creatures. I would favor cards with more consistent draw power, such as The Great Henge, Elemental Bond, and Guardian Project which allow you to draw whenever you cast a creature card is much more consistent and can ultimately draw you a ton more cards than those one off spells. On top of that, the enchantment draw card you do use, Colossal Majesty, only triggers its effect with a power 4 or greater creature which you only have 7 (8 if your commander has 4 or more lands on the field) creatures that meet that requirement. I'd definitely cut that for one of my other draw suggestions. I'd also eliminate Regal Force, as its cost is entirely too high for how situational its draw effect is.
Let me know if you want any other suggestions, these are what I can think of at the moment! Here's a link to my deck build for anyone who is interested:

Swarm Shambler would make a fine 1 drop too.
