Here are some suggested cuts
- Cut Molder Slug for Bane of Progress
- Cut Dawntreader Elk for Cultivate . Same cost, better effect.
- Cut Zhur-Taa Druid for Selvala, Heart of the Wilds . Selvala is ramp and a draw engine in this deck.
- Cut Steel Leaf Champion for Polukranos, World Eater or anything that really rewards your doubling your mana.
- Cut Temur Sabertooth for Greater Good . Sac your creatures in response to removal, then dig deep into your deck and find more threats to end the game.
- Cut Reclamation Sage for Ulvenwald Tracker

I'd say cut Bane of Progress since you don't want to blow up your own exploration and burgeoning and stuff

are more and more prominent in my playgroup, let alone ramp dorks/sac dorks/land destruction packages, and Kessig Wolf Run abuse that could net me card advantage on top of a good early game body. Drawing off of a fetch feels pretty alright as well :)

"Other" Section Observations:
Burgeoning good card, but you have alot of multiple lands per turn cards
Constant Mists solid
Crop Rotation Unnecessary imo
Life / Death Can only use one spell, can prob find something that is more impactful to the deck
Sylvan Advocate Good because it's a 2/3 for 2 mana, but only adds significant value with commitment to land creatures
Sylvan Library V good card, excels if you maintain lifegain sub-strategy
Titania, Protector of Argoth Only good if you commit to the graveyard recall sub-strategy
Traverse the Outlands fantastic, can this be turned into a win condition?
Volcanic Offering fun af, but probably better options for the card slot
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Print out Business Cards saying "GG" for when you play this
Zuran Orb A must have if you commit to graveyard recall + lifegain sub strategies
World Breaker kinda sucks for 7 mana
Bane of Progress a conditional 6 drop is risky; amazing sideboard card in our meta
Exsanguinate Love it.
Your non-creature game is strong, but your damage output is weak and is currently the biggest flaw facing your deck. Your best bet imo is to either rip out creatures and synergize removal + damage or add in a few more big trample creatures. I think your comparative advantage lies in creatures: you'll consistently have an ungodly mana pool to take advantage of them, and you're already relying on creatures for this concept to work.

Elvish piper is a card I love in my Xenagos deck. For my Muldrotha it doesn’t fit well. I tutor up LED as soon as possible and keep discarding my hand. As soon as you build your boardstate, the only thing you have to fear is stuff like Cyclonic Rift . You can counter that with Glen elendra, but stuff like Bane of Progress might still be a problem. To prevent this I usually go for Mindslicer and sac it. That takes your opponents chance to deal with your board. Mindslicer after your own rift is often a scoop because it leaves your opponents with just lands and in topdeck mode. For this reason I even thought about cutting Survival of the Fittest but this card is still amazing if you draw a single creature and spend 5 mana to put some tools into your 2nd hand.
Edit: yeah, I know this feeling. I’m playing and collecting since 94 and still love to try new stuff. After testing with a proxies I bought LED for this deck. It’s like a black lotus here each turn, twice a turn if you saved it the turn before :-)

I'm looking forward to seeing it! I love Torpor Orb for the fact that what's often the removal for it is Acidic Slime , Reclamation Sage , Bane of Progress , Knight of Autumn , etc. You see your opponents face light up for a moment after drawing as they've found their answer... Only to realize it wont work.

@ MCJennings The Anvil of Bogardan looks very sweet to me and I think that it might just be better than Howling Mine indeed. Very often I'm hording valuable enchantments and artifacts in my graveyard to cast an Open the Vaults , most of the time resulting in a powerfull bordstate unexpected by my opponents. The Anvil should be able helping me by filling my graveyard over the time with valuable goods... I'm making some changes to my Zedruudeck at the moment, trying out some new things to spice it up. So I did just cut the Howling Mine for Torpor Orb (SCREW YOU, Bane of Progress !!) . I'm going through some testing right now and I will update the deck sometime next week here on tappedout :)
