Hi Rossa!

Thank you for your many recommendations!

Asceticism : I considered this a lot, but I prefer auras than enchantments like this, so I can immediately trigger the fight mechanic. Colossal Majesty : Same reason with Asceticism; plus, when I cast this on turn 2 or 3, this most probably will do nothing for me. I have a lot of ways to draw cards. But I really did consider this when making the deck.

About the creatures, I initially had Polukranos, World Eater here but then I cut it as its too much too activate, I could just remove creatures using the fight mechanic on the commander. As for Chameleon Colossus , Whiptongue Hydra , and Phyrexian Hydra (he's not ugly lol, I love me my infect creatures :) ); I used to run this along with Polukranos when the deck started out as kinda tribal hydra / enchantress. Having decided to focus on the enchantment route, all I needed to do was to put out Gargos asap and kill creatures (through auras) and attack. But I am thinking of maybe cutting Karametra's Acolyte and/or Primordial Hydra for Whiptongue and Phyhrexian Hydra. (Thanks for reminding me about these two!)

Traverse the Outlands is something I overlooked, having 5 cmc I will have to think about it still.

Thanks for your recommendations, I really appreciate it! :)

Hello! I really like this idea to boost up this commander with enchantments. I just created a deck for the same commander, but I selected Instants instead of Enchantments. Enchantments have better support in Green, but Instant are more powerful without any support. However this Green Enchantment deck has a really unique atmosphere, so thank you for building it. Some (obvious) ideas which might worth consideration: Ramp Traverse the Outlands , always good creature it can be a wincon and hydra as well Chameleon Colossus , good removal creature Polukranos, World Eater , best protection in Green Asceticism , good card drawer Colossal Majesty , and the best flying creature removal Whiptongue Hydra and finally an ugly creature which is a hydra and a potential wincon Phyrexian Hydra . I hope you can use some of these cards. :-)

For cuts, i'd think about removing reach creatures as that ability is worthless once you have flying already.

So:

Then I'd cut down creatures that aren't that great in their own and are just in her for redundancy like

You might also want to as m switch stronghold assassin to Attrition and run Viscera Seer as a reliable and continual sac engine.

Also, if you're feeling spicy, you can run Killing Wave . You can use it offensively to drain opponents, it just as a "sac any number of you creatures" for a single {B}, since you can cast it for X=0 and still choose to not pay for each of your creatures.

MikuHatsune Yeah, good idea! The Whiptongue Hydra , Hurricane and Spidersilk Armor , should be here. But, right now I can´t afford the Akroma's Memorial . Thanks for those tips!

I'd recommend adding some anti-flying card, like Whiptongue Hydra , Hurricane , Akroma's Memorial , Spidersilk Armor , or at the very least something like Beast Within to get rid of one problem permanent.

Interesting suggestions... well I don’t really need to do double the triggers to kill everyone most of the time.

Despite lifegain being the most popular theme on EDHREC it’s rarely played in my playgroup. And in the case that it is played I just have to focus that player earlier to keep them at a reasonable life total.

I was thinking of cuts so I could add Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Harvester of Souls to the deck.

I think the weakest card that could be cut is Molder Slug but I don’t know what else to cut.

Whiptongue Hydra is an option as it is a nonbo with my flyers. However, there is a Kalia in my play group that it would be pretty good against.

The other option is Skullwinder or Golgari Findbroker since 4 Eternal Witness effects seems like to many and I think they are the worst? But, maybe you can never have too many?

I saw your update. and that was the first time I saw Whiptongue Hydra . My reaction was: "WHAT. That's OP" but then I read that it destroys ALL creatures with flying. (it still isn't bad. And maybe even better than Arbor Colossus )
