Legendary Planeswalker — Vivien
+1: Look at the top four cards of your library. You may reveal a creature or land card from among them and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.
-3: Destroy target artifact, enchantment, or creature with flying.
-8: You get an emblem with "Creatures you control get +2/+2 and have vigilance, trample, and indestructible."
Vivien Reid Discussion

Hey fun little fact, Devoted Druid can go infinite with Leyline of Abundance + Ezuri, Renegade Leader + 1 more mana! It's a new combo I just found out about and it's very strong, I highly recommend it.
Also, How has nissa worked out for you? I see a lot of builds running it but always thought it was one of the weaker walkers for the deck. I recently just added Vivien Reid to my deck but also think Vivien, Champion of the Wilds might be strong additions to the deck! I have my list here Ezuri, Renegade Leader Combo Elves *Primer* and would love your opinion on it!

Vivien Reid works good for me! She was a replacement for Garruk, Caller of Beasts (had him in for card advantage). I prefer her because she is more flexible. Her +1 is a little weaker than Garruks but the additional removal, especially for fliers, is a big plus for me!
If you manage to get her out early, your opponents will have to deal with her! Once you get the emblem it is game over.

Made some changes based on your suggestions, let me know what you think. Longish read condensed.
Argothian Wurm : Early game goodness, late game could slow us down facing certain decks that can abuse lands.
Naya's Charm: I have mixed feelings about. 3dmg to creature only feels like a waste. Returning a card from the yard could prove useful if commander tax adds up. Lastly and most used is clearing a path to swing. Should this slot be filled with a better removal spell, or is there worth I'm missing here?
Lurking Predators : Our new commander has a similar ability that's less annoying. Also its not a 'May' trigger so we could potentially be forced into casting our deck into a wipe.
Mayael's Aria : There's no other counter synergy in the deck, but bigger is always better. Surprise wincon? Slot in something better?
Garruk, Primal Hunter vs Vivien Reid : One or both? Garruk protects himself on the ground, draws cards, and makes a mess of Wurms. Vivian finds critters, destroys flyers (glaring weakness in the deck), and an emblem to boost our field. Both technically have the same turn clock to go off except Garruk can be used as a 5cmc one shot draw spell, whereas vivian can minus and have points remaining.
Something else I've been mulling over is what to replace these last 2/3 with... as they are no longer as useful, at least not all of them. Piper may have a use to stay being: a) it's a creature that can be egged, and b) with a haste enabler out it can be 5cmc for 2 creatures.
Belbe's Portal : 8cmc(5/t:3) investment for 1 creature limited to type.
Quicksilver Amulet : 8cmc (4/t:4) investment for 1 creature
Elvish Piper : still may have it's uses. 5cmc (4/t:1) investment, haste enabler preferred prior to casting.

Draw is at an interesting impasse. The more evasion/trample this deck has, the more Keen Sense and Sixth Sense are viable; Running both seems overkill. Rishkar's Expertise is not half bad, but I’m torn between it, Garruk, Caller of Beasts and Vivien Reid . Inspiring Call is now leagues better with Drana. I’m still waiting for that diamond in the rough.
I’m jumping in headfirst with Dolmen Gate . Sooo many creatures sit on the board only to boost Skullbriar. This combos super well with Drana. Dolmen also acts as alternative evasion since not everyone wants to block a lose/lose.
Ouphe wrecks. So many decks play off mana rocks and artifact combo win cons. I search for him quick. Besides big cmc, I avoid those evasion-equipment because of him.
I need to buy shizo... I just can’t imagine a reprint of a weird card like that... but that $$$ hurts.
Scheming supports friendly gameplay. Like, idk if I’d be bothered playing it 1v1. EDH is supposed to be fun, not punishing.
Rite is rough around edges. High cmc, doesn’t work with dolmen, most creatures aren’t tough enough to survive the initial damage, and not a guaranteed counter. This is an aggro deck so the creatures should always be tapped and attacking. Without vigilance, Rite doesn’t work as well imo. Idk, I feel like Unspeakable Symbol and Vivien, Arkbow Ranger land more counters, but even then I feel like none of these warrant their slot. I’m pretty shoehorned into Drana and Dolmen lol

Chhris thx for vommenting[Comment and Vote]. I really wanted to keep Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants because its use in the deck. It puts counters on Ghave, it recurs some combo pieces of necessary, or if it reaches its ultimate, it really goes off, giving me so much stuff to do. If you think its unnecessary I can still remove it, but this is my opinion. I agree though that Vivien Reid doesnt fit in very well, I just had it in my hands and decide to use it. Probably replace it with Teysa Karlov because it works great with Blood Artist and such or some type of removal. I am on the line about Ephemerate because its capability Probably am going am going to replace it with Unexpectedly Absent
