  • Expedition Map is amazing and an auto 4 of, as is sylvan scrying. Once upon a time is really good as well. Just make sure you have enough pay offs. Sylvan Scrying Ancient Stirrings are also a must.
  • If you are really looking for a red X card your best card is Banefire

I like the idea of swarming the opponent. Drawing a bunch of cards, untapping lands to swarm.

Hydroid Krasis does everything but swarm. Also helps with green splash for Ancient Stirrings

I'd probably go UG or UW. I'm working on a budget version now because of lgs... looking for ideas.

This came to me after I made my comment, but I think Cloudstone Curio could be used as a strong draw engine in this deck. Given that you have Argothian Enchantress , Eidolon of Blossoms , Enchantress's Presence , Setessan Champion and Verduran Enchantress , you could continuously bounce two small enchantments with each other to get a ridiculous amount of card advantage. You could even efficiently draw lots of cards with just Cloudstone Curio , Abundant Growth and Utopia Sprawl // Wild Growth as you can move the mana-enchantment on to other untapped lands to keep producing extra mana. You could even use it to get around your own Root Maze on your turn and you can bounce your lands for extra mana as well if you start running short on lands in hand.

Another card to consider for control purposes would be Quicksilver Fountain as you can slowly turn all your opponent's lands into Island s. This strategy is pretty effective in green commander decks as you can use cards like Crop Rotation , Sylvan Scrying and Ancient Stirrings to fetch Unstable Frontier . The trick with Quicksilver Fountain and Unstable Frontier is that you can have the fountain target one of your lands to put the flood counter on it, and then in response to the ability on the stack you'd tap the frontier to turn that targeted land into an Island for the turn. Because the land is now an Island it becomes an illegal target for the Quicksilver Fountain 's ability countering it which means the land will not get the flood counter. With this your opponents lands will end up mana-screwed while you'd get to keep your lands in tact. The best part is even if your opponent's remove the Quicksilver Fountain it will not remove the flood counters meaning your opponent's lands will remain permanently stuck as Islands. This means you could create a serious dead lock with Choke or create a ludicrous amount of mana with Carpet of Flowers . As a bonus, instead of Unstable Frontier you can also use Cloudstone Curio to help remove flood counters by bouncing your lands with each other.

Of course these strategies would run at odds with cards like Titania's Song and Null Rod , but they're helpful to keep in mind and if your meta ever becomes less artifact dependent it might be best to switch them out for these cards along with Extraplanar Lens as these 3 mana artifacts aren't affected by Collector Ouphe or Damping Matrix .

I think you mean Ancient Stirrings and Forest not Ancient Stirring and Forests?

lagotripha I changed it around a little so that I have Ancient Stirrings in there now.

I liked Splinter over Bramblecrush because it can wipe out all of a single kind of mana in someones deck.

I was half expecting a ramp into Bramblecrush list, but artifact hate is neat. Best of luck with the brew- there are a few maligned 4 and 5 drops in r/g that do decent once you have a land advantage.

I'd look at something that looks at the top cards of your library so you can hunt out coating- Ancient Stirrings is one option, but there are enough other cards.
