Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.

ah sorry didnt notice this area
Could you provide us with some insight on what exactly you want this deck to do? As it stands, I see very little synergy or any defining themes or strategies (which could be part of your problem). If we know what you want to do, then we can provide better information than just going in blind.
Let's post that deck here where it's easier to look at shall we?
 

@mikemearls The office is basically empty this week, which opens up all sorts of possibilities for low shenanigans

@mikemearls In essence, all those arguments I lost are being unlost. Won, if you will. We're doing it MY way, baby.

@biotech66 aren't you the boss anyway? isn't "DO IT OR I FIRE YOU!" still an option?

@mikemearls I think Perkins would throat punch me if I ever tried that. And I'd give him a glowing quarterly review for it.

Now, fron what I can gather from your deck's name, your goal is to build up a Lumberknot to critical size and then cast Essence Harvest for the win?  Your deck seems too conlficted with itself to pull that off.  My suggestion would be to go back to the drawing bard and try again.  You need either a quicker way to boost your creatures, or a more efficient way to kill things.

I like Increasing Savagery in any deck that involves the color green and counters, but thats just me. Also, the Dawntreader Elk can let you get extra mana and give Lumberknot his +1/+1. I would suggest making it a bg sacrifice deck like Blood Artist + Disciple of Bolas/Bloodthrone Vampire. You have alot of options for how you want to make your deck hope this helps

You are both rational and emotional. You value creation and discovery, and feel strongly about what I create. At best, you're innovative and intuitive. At worst, you're scattered and unpredictable.
agreed, the best way to do this isnt to kill opponents stuff but rather to cast so many auras on lumberknot that it wins you the game gigantiform is option

the current strategy just isnt very good - its slow, relies wholly on lumberknot and doesnt do much if opponent isnt playing creatures.

another way to build around lumberknot would be masivereatures, either undying or tokens, amassing an early offense that then feeds lumberknot if opponetn gets blockers.

Finally you can play creatures that you sacrifice for cards and mana, maybe even a combo.

but the first option is just easier and better: build around hexproof.
Lumberknot seems like it would be good with Evoke (Mulldrifter and such) and also undying like with strangleroot geist and sack outlets like Disciple of Bolas, Altar's Reap, etc.

You could also probably get somewhere by adding red for sweepers like Volcanic Fallout and even more sack outlets like Fling or Scorched Rusalka.  Red also has my favorite undying creature: Hound of Griselbrand

3 color can be tough to pull off but it's doable with cards like Savage Lands or Darigaaz's Caldera 
Also, perhaps a playset of Corpsejack Menace to accelerate the counter accretion on the lumberjack.  and it has a nice spot in the mana curve...
