Wave of Vitriol
Each player sacrifices all artifacts, enchantments, and nonbasic lands he or she controls. For each land sacrificed this way, its controller may search his or her library for a basic land card and put it onto the battlefield tapped. Then each player who searched his or her library this way shuffles it.
Wave of Vitriol Discussion

I built this deck and did a few games with it; I think Sigarda, Host of Herons may be a good add as she can be fetched with Sisay and I got totally wiped out by a Wave of Vitriol (I didn't have enough basics to cover my lost non-basics!). Combined with other common removal from black it may be very helpful.

I'd replace the tron lands with basic Wastes though - you'll almost never get the three tron pieces without tutoring for them, and having more basics is beneficial against cards like Wave of Vitriol or Back to Basics , or for cards like Veteran Explorer .

For the Multani deck, add in Wayward Swordtooth , Sylvan Library , Nature's Claim , Natural Order , and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds . There are other cards you can add in depending on the style you want to go. Like if you want to play more on the land route you can add in Titania, Protector of Argoth and use cards like Scapeshift as well as Zuran Orb to sacrifice your lands and than go for the beats. Or you can go wide route and ramp off the yin yang and proceed to smash face using cards like Rude Awakening and Living Plane to smash people. World Shaper is also pretty nice for recursion of lands already in the graveyard.
Some other tech cards you can add in are like Prowling Serpopard for them uncounterable creatures or Scavenging Ooze against those grave decks. Heroic Intervention is also a sweet card to run to protect your boardstate in case of a wipe. Constant Mists can also help in preventing people from ever doing combat. Realms Uncharted would fit in well also if your going for a land toolbox type of deck. Wave of Vitriol also punishes people who play multicolor decks and equalizes the board.
Hope that helps buu!

Wow, dude. You might be the very first person I've advised to remove lands from their deck. 42 is plenty, even for a big creature deck with Exploration and Burgeoning. Add in a little more early ramp in those spots. Sakura-Tribe Elder and Farseek come to mind. T
he other thing to keep in mind if you're new to commander is that 99-card singleton vs 60-card decks with 4 copies of staple cards behave very differently. You're only 50/50 to draw two creatures in the first 6 turns. Foster and Heirloom Blade might be good, in addition to a few more leviathans. Deep-Sea Kraken is a great early drop that should be out with haste by turn 5. Mesmerizing Benthid and Elder Deep-Fiend are octopi that can slow down opponents. Tromokratis is just a pain for any deck running utility creatures. Nimbus Swimmer can get hilariously large with your ramp package.
I think the counterspells that untap lands are clever, for sure. I might also consider Frantic Search for the same reason. If you really want to double down on the flash subtheme, then Leyline of Anticipation and/or Vedalken Orrery are good. Although, if you want to remove Simic Signet , as well, having very few artifacts or enchantments (that don't win on the spot, anyway), means that Bane of Progress and Wave of Vitriol are both pretty great.
Cyclonic Rift is just a straight-up staple, so make that a stretch card when you want to put more into the deck. As for tribal stuff, this might be a stretch on your budget, but Herald's Horn and Urza's Incubator are where it's at.
Bounty of the Luxa hasn't been all it was hyped up to be when it first came out. I'm not a fan of Foil , since the part of the game when you've got 4 mana but don't have extra untapped lands is pretty narrow.
Beyond that, I would check out the sea-creature tribal EDHREC page for Arixmethes. Looks like about 30 people have built decks under that theme, which is lower than I expected, although the decks from the main page might be built as such but not labeled. There's also a quirk of tribes with high CMC and low numbers tend to not meet the EDHREC critera for the site's algorithm automatically labelling it as a tribal deck.

I like your deck.
I highly recommend Sylvan Primordial (-desert twister) It gives you insane value.
Also, Mono-G is weak to mass removal Praetor's Counsel (-eternal witness) helps get back what you lose and with Myojin...
Pesky artifacts? Annoying enchantments? Utility lands killing your fun? Say no more Wave of Vitriol (-reclamation sage) .
Also Hunter's Prowess (-Harmonize)

hkhssweiss - My poor man's Craterhoof Behemoth right now is Tooth and Nail into Surrak, the Hunt Caller and Pathbreaker Ibex but End-Raze Forerunners is a good option too. Also I desperately want Concordant Crossroads but right now it's a little bit out of my budget. Maybe next paycheck!
- Love all these suggestions. I've definitely been heavily considering Birthing Pod and Triumph of the Hordes . Infect is slightly frowned upon in my group but I might just say fuck it and go in on it anyway. It's too good to leave behind. Champion of Lambholt is an interesting idea that I didn't consider initially but she could also be a really useful inclusion now that I think about it. Got her in a few other decks and she always plays great. Thanks for the suggestions!

Wave of Vitriol is pretty great where you have so many basic forests.

This deck actually looks very solid! I don't think there is too much I would change, except that I would definitely add Walking Ballista and Crystalline Crawler which can enable you to have insane combo-esque turns. I don't think I personally would lean to hard on the token theme, but having good token makers like Tendershoot Dryad is still important. Wave of Vitriol is also an insane way to not only rid the board of any threats, but go completely over-the-top and destroy people! It's got to be good for like, forty +1/+1 counters at least.
