Botanical Sanctum seems like it'd pretty great in here.

I recommend 4x Blighted Agent, Yavimaya Coasts over Botanical Sanctums also add 2 more lands or at least 2 Birds of Paradise, more pumps less counterspells. Good luck!

@budywolfe I thought about it. I thought about splashing many different colors. I am not convinced that Oath of Ajani is what I'd want to splash for though. I think that fits better in a G/W token deck, as you are playing more planeswalkers and are trying to spit out as many tokens as you can. I think oath of ajani goes particularly well with Sram's Expertise.

I think if you are going to splash for any colour that you are better off splashing blue for counter spells. Blue gives you a few tools that help the deck. Negate is classic and is really good at stopping sweepers and other removal, as well as stopping Aetherworks Marvel and planeswalkers. You also get access to Lumbering Falls which is arguable the best manland in standard right now. The other lands in sultai colours also are good for the deck, as Botanical Sanctum gives you access to turn one green mana. I find this important for my deck because I play Oath of Nissa.

Speaking of which, I really like oath of nissa. It offers a good amount of card selection, as hitting land drops, and finding Winding Constrictor is important to us. My favourite part about nissa's oath though is turning on revolt for Fatal Push (also forgot to mention that Walking Ballista can be used to trigger revolt and allow you to take down many creatures in one turn).

All of that said, there may be a good reason to splash white. White does have better unconditional removal, and ajani's oath and other cards work well with our counter plan. Shoulder to Shoulder is card that has always intrigued me. Let me know if you play around with splashing for anything!

Also, a playset (4 copies) of Aether Hub should replace some basic lands. Botanical Sanctum is also nice to help fix, but if you go to playsets of Servant and Attune it might not be as critical. I typically like to have key cards as 4-ofs to ensure I see it every game, increase the odds it's in the opening hand, and isn't that bad if you draw a second. Adds more consistency so you can know exactly what order to play things immediately. Put some of those less important and more specific cards, like Nature's Way, into the sideboard. Just a few pointers, don't mean to be overbearing.

From Kaladesh I added Panharmonicon, Botanical Sanctum, and Spirebluff Canal. I hope Panharmonicon will work out well.

How do you find the 1x Botanical Sanctum in this deck? I am considering using 1 of them as I need a substitute for a Breeding Pool until I buy those for my own infect modern deck. My deck is still pretty budget, it's simply 18 basic forests/islands and 1 Inkmoth Nexus that I just bought last week... It's going to take a while to build this deck of my own probably as there's so many other things I want too do in standard and commander as well as this.

I have a bunch of what you're looking for, including a pummeler, a Botanical Sanctum, two Blossoming Defense, two Galvanic Bombardment, a Game Trail, at least one Longtusk Cub, two Servant of the Conduit, some Tears of Valakut, a Voltaic Brawler, and some Larger Than Life. I'm interested in the Necropotence and possibly your ob nixilis .
