PookandPie Both good suggestions that I plan on adding to the deck eventually. It’s my newest deck so I’m still play testing and acquiring cards. Mostly fetches, duals, tutors, and fast mana. Both of those are great outlets though. Currently I’ve got High Market and Altar of Bone in as budget fill ins. Thanks for checking it out though!

Im counting 85 cards listed so far. Of this only 10 are lands and if you divert all open 15 slots to lands then youll sit at 25 lands which is not enough.

You are also missing mana rocks better suited to ramping like the Signets. Golgari Signet, Orzhov Signet, Selesnya Signet are a must. Druidic Satchel, commanders sphere, sarpadian empires, vol. vii are all cards Id consider cutting for the signets.

Also, Id consider adding Life and Limb and Terra Eternal. This will secure mana, and an indestructible army on the cheap. Mirari's Wake also will aid you in mana ramp and enhancing your creatures. Goes well with the above mentioned.Land Tax could help at the beginning and also at late game if Terra is destroyed and you lands are board wiped. There are plenty of grave recursion options to belting back lands if this is a worry.

Doubling Season is greatly needed for this deck.

Aura Shards is a must.

Dueling Grounds could also aid you if combined with Sublime Archangel due to tour token generation.

Craterhoof Behemoth is an amazing finisher for this deck.

Eladamri's Call, Green Sun's Zenith, Altar of Bone are great tutors.

There is a lot more Id do to this design but Ill stop here for now.

Hello, thanks for the upvote and comment on my deck! Imperial Seal is not required at all, your deck will still function excellently without one. In fact, I don't find myself playing my deck very often because of how linear it is. That's my biggest complaint about the deck actually, although it's a complicated combo, it always wins in the same way (usually starting with Protean Hulk). It's sort of like playing Ad Nauseam in Modern. Oh well.

Anyways, here's my suggestions for your next upgrades: Eternal Witness, Birthing Pod, Dance of the Dead (I like the enchantment reanimate spells because of the interaction with Leonin Relic-Warder), Life/Death, and maybe a Journey to Eternity  Flip. If you get a Birthing Pod, Felidar Guardian becomes amazing, allowing you to turn any 3-drop into a 5-drop. Recruiter of the Guard is great at finding combo pieces and not too pricey. Altar of Bone and Eldritch Evolution are great ways to add consistency to your combo as well.

For cuts, I would suggest Will-o'-the-Wisp, Angel of Glory's Rise, and maybe Utopia Sprawl (looks like you sometimes won't have a forest when you want to cast this). I think Selvala and Yahenni are OK for now, but I like Caustic Caterpillar more than Qasali Pridemage. I also think some of the above suggestions are better than Breath of Life, Zombify and Reclaim.

One more thing, I like the idea of Entomb in this deck (yours and mine), mostly because having a Blood Artist in the 'yard is nearly always better than having it in the deck. I think I will add it to my list, so I appreciate that. I'll subscribe to your deck and try to keep up with any changes, and remember that my suggestions are just a quick takes and you always have the right idea for what will work best in your deck!

Eladamri's Call is a strictly better Altar of Bone. Time of Need is a great tutor for your legendary creatures. Gavony Township is also a great mana sink land card. If you need more card draw that is easier try for Sylvan Library. With your small but still useful life-gain from Selvala you can mitigate the life loss of the library with ease.

The reason half of the cards are banned is because you have the deck listed as the Modern format. Cards like Survival of the Fittest Altar of Bone and Captain Sisay have never been printed in a modern legal set, which is any from 8th edition on. It's also safer to check the gatherer and wizards websites to get accurate banned list info as tappedout is not accurate.
