Basking Rootwalla is strictly better than Frilled Sandwalla in the event you eat an Ostracize, Wrench Mind, Raven's Crime, etc

Looks like a fun deck! Cheers!

Teniendo en cuenta que la gran mayoria de tus cartas terminan en el cementerio, yo cambiaria los removals por cartas con madness como por ej:

Murderous Compulsion, Dark Withering, Psychotic Episode, Alms of the Vein

en ese sentido, Deepcavern Imp podria reemplazar al Putrid. Aunque tambien Arrogant Wurm o Basking Rootwalla podrian funcionar en su lugar.

El Seal of Doom parece bastante injugable, pero siendo un encantamiento, puede terminar en tu mano con la Commune.

Alguna Mortuary Mire no me parece que este de mas, por si se te cae un Gurmag al cementerio o si te matan la 3/3 vuela.

Basking Rootwalla is probably the best lizard there is, so I'd go for it! Even without being able to play him via Madness, he's much better than the regular Rootwalla. That extra is not worth +1/+1, trust me. If it's easier to get your hands on, Frilled Sandwalla is virtually identical in this case.

Pretty interesting deck, i like it. There are some things i'd change though: 20 lands are not enough considering your amount of cards with a high cmc. 24 seems better. Then, to optimize what shefet monitor can do, you could try adding some wastes. A combo i'd suggest is Tormenting Voice and Basking Rootwalla.

Putrid Imp and Basking Rootwalla are both not modern legal. They have only been printed in Torment and non-Modern-legal supplemental sets. As a replacement 1-drop, I could see Llanowar Mentor or Greenseeker.

Also, if you're interesting in running a B/G delve deck, Tasigur, the Golden Fang already has established himself as a powerful contender in modern.

May I suggest Noose Constrictor and Basking Rootwalla? It could heavily grow your field pretty fast.

As long as you can pay the cost to use an ability (including any in that cost), you may activate it. Unless of course the ability says otherwise, like how on Basking Rootwalla it says "activate this ability only once each turn." Might I also suggest looking at Thousand-Year Elixir?

No love for Harmonize, Sylvan Library, Life's Legacy or Shamanic Revelation yet so I'll throw those out there. Also Craterhoof Behemoth fits right in, he's being reprinted soon so wait to buy him though. Genesis and Basking Rootwalla could work well here too possibly. Anyways good luck and never sell allllll your cards!
