Xenagos, the Reveler Discussion

Well, then hello neighbor. I’m from Germany so I’m familiar with € prices. 15 per Card is actually really decent and brings major improvements. I’ll list the prices assuming you use cardmarket too.
Purphoros, God of the Forge(10-12€), packs a great punch with your token generation and is also good in a lot of other decks if you retire Xyris one day. So it’s one of the more expensive ones but well worth it.
Impact Tremors(1,40€), little brother of purphoros, but still does massive work.
Beastmaster Ascension(3,70€) and Shared Animosity(2,30€) greatly empower your token army. Mass Hysteria and Fervor(both around 2€) gives your token army haste so you can swing right after a wheel or mass draw.
Skullclamp(4€) is a really nice draw card with tokens, so you never run out of gas.
I could go on with more suggestions but I think that’s enough for the first time. Maybe take a look at my primer first, I bet you finds lots of other new toys there and after that I can still help you to improve. Otherwise the list now will get too long I guess

Xenagos, the Reveler already was a Gaea's Cradle on a stick, and nobody ever got excited over that. Circle of Dreams Druid 's biggest hype is being an Elf, for untap shenanigans with Wirewood Symbiote and the like.
I guess a Tolarian Academy -artifact would probably look a lot like Nyx Lotus , counting artifacts instead of devotion. Even then, I don't expect one in a Standard set the upcoming year, they've printed way too much Treasure Token generation recently to risk even a watered down version.

Pikobyte I'm going to my LGS today to pick up Xenagos, the Reveler, Minds Aglow, Mass Hysteria, Guardian Augmenter, Whirlpool Warrior, and Spellskite. I think all of these are going to be great additions to this deck for the time being until I can find another Phyrexian Altar to slot in. I have one in Resurrection Insurrection but can't justify pulling out to put into Wheely Snakes just yet, I'd like to playtest with it first. Xenagos will replace Fevered Visions. I feel like the mana advantage that Xenagos will provide outweighs the extra card draw and 2 damage. I rarely play Fevered Visions anyway, I usually get it later in a game and have no need for the forced card draw since I'm usually wheeling by t4 t5 or t6. Minds Aglow will replace Prosperity, because exactly what you said in a previous comment. Mass Hysteria will replace Temur Ascendancy. It's easier to cast, and is the same haste enabler. I only have 4 creatures that would even trigger the 2nd ability of Temur Ascendancy so its gotta go! Guardian Augmenter and Spellskite will replace Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind. The Niv-Mizzets are hard to cast so I find more often than not, I don't cast them because I have a better option in hand that isn't going to cost nearly as much to cast. They are great when they are on the field, but I feel like protection and +2/+2 for Xyris is going to benefit me more often than the Nivs would. Lastly, I think Whirlpool Warrior is going to replace either Psychosis Crawler or Tribute to the Wild. Both are good in their own right. Psychosis crawler can be massive after a wheel or 2 and can put down some serious damage and Tribute to the wild is just fun, especially if an opponent's only artifact or enchantment is a combo or deck engine piece. Thats going to be the hardest cut decision on this round. Thank you again for your suggestions!

That maybeboard sure would help, but… before you put in earthcraft I would go for Phyrexian Altar. It’s cheaper money wise, way easier to tutor with blue than an enchantment and doesn’t require you to fetch for basics to make it work. Earthcraft is better under the right conditions but overall altar should be your go-to unless you already got an earthcraft and want to play it.
I can also highly recommend Xenagos, the Reveler and some good protection for your commander. Once your opponents realize that your deck doesn’t do much without Xyris other than giving them more cards, Xyris is a big target. Cards like Spellskite or Guardian Augmenter work great since you can precast them and they protect as soon as Xyris hits the field. Spellskite also can protect earthcraft and phyrexian altar, or steal auras from your opponents and enables other shenanigans.

Urth_drgn219 Vicious Shadows is my control hate, it is a great tutor card if everyone has a scary board. I like Sarkhan Vol a lot and will get a copy eventually but I've used Xenagos, the Reveler in that role for a while and he works great. Im not the biggest fan of Vraska, Relic Seeker as she just ends up being awkward removal most games. I have Phyrexian Arena in other decks but I like Fecundity better in this deck. Eternal Witness is just a better Golgari Findbroker too. Thank you for the suggestions!

Theres quite a bit you can do here. Better wheels obviously but they’re quite pricey. You also should consider cards like Battle Hymn , Xenagos, the Reveler or Phyrexian Altar . They really help you to make some explosive turns. Maybe most important is good protection, especially since you’re playing quite a bit grouphug stuff. Without your commander on the field a Xyris deck doesn’t do very much. Counterspells are nice in theory but they don’t work very well with wheels since you can’t keep them until you need them. Steely Resolve , Guardian Augmenter and Spellskite work better here since you can just cast them right away and keep wheeling. Spellskite also protects artifacts and even enchantments.
In terms of power level things get pricey fast. My version of Xyris is high powered but comes with a much bigger pricetag. Feel free to take a look at my primer, maybe you find some new toys there.

"I feel like the avatars are in a better position to be given the god subtype than most others. Having said that, I feel like anything that didn’t start with that subtype won’t be getting it."
I mean, in the original Theros, when Gods were introduced, there was a character who didn't start as a God who then did gain the God subtype later on. So it's clearly possible.

I can think of a way to do it with this spell X=5, no cards in hand, no permanents on board, no floating mana. Also a way with this spell X=4, no cards in hand, two mana sources one that produces white on board, and no floating mana; or X=3, no cards in hand, no permanents on board, and floating.
All scenarios are abusing PW that tutor to search for other cards that do the actual kill. Either infinite mana into Walking Ballista ( Elspeth Tirel , Ajani, the Greathearted , Xenagos, the Reveler , Garruk Relentless Flip, Tezzeret the Seeker ) or the Copy Cat combo ( Garruk Relentless Flip, Elspeth Tirel , Saheeli Rai , and either the 4 mana or the 2 sources and Teferi, Temporal Archmage ).
