I've been working on some alternative characters and stumbled upon the Command Animals and Command Plants feats.
Thematically, it fits druid really well with the ability to befriend and commune with nature, but the only way to grab these feats is through a cleric or using another class with a channel energy archetype.
Cleric 1/Druid 1 right now, Human with the bonus feat. Grab the Plant and Animal domains.
Grab Ooze Whisperer and Vermin Heart to be able to use Command Animals on vermin and oozes. This let's you grab both plants AND Animals/oozes/vermin whose HD equal your level.
Now what I wanted to do is include a way to effectively squeeze in Command Undead and maybe Boon Companion to up our animal companion to equal our druid level (1 druid + cleric-3 + boon companion)
I'm not sure what direction to take the class levels or stat wise though. Feyspeaker or Elder Mythos Cultist archetypes would give charisma to casting, making you less MAD for the build. But stumped on progression and order of leveling.
