Flooremoji on 60 Land Challenge - Desert Tomb

Although I know you want 60 lands, Crucible of Worlds and maybe even a Azusa, Lost but Seeking would be killer in this deck. If you really wanted to make this deck more competitive you could add board wipes like Damnation.

Budoka Gardener and Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant would also work. I know most of these cards are expensive and would add colors, but that is what you would need to do to make it more competitive.

Super late but!

Emzed I like all your suggestions! Budoka Gardener and Tolaria West are the best, though it does hurt a bit that Tolaria West only taps for U when you do open with it.

SufferFromEDHD Yes, those are good cards! However like I mentioned in my intro, I only use card with the modern-frame onwards; if you like them you can definitely put them in yourself!

straborn Hm, the main combo itself is not too hard to assemble considering that the only specific piece you need to grab is Retreat to Coralhelm. And in the event it does go south, you have a few outs with the other combos that aren't as simple but use redundant pieces. If you're looking for it to be a bit more streamlined, using something like Academy Rector or Idyllic Tutor can help. Considering that you don't have those two cards you mentioned, I would definitely make an effort to put in stronger tutors since you only have access to the main combo really. I'll take a look at other combos when I have time, but essentially anything that acts like a good infinite mana-sink helps! The biggest card recently that I'm considering is Thrasios, Triton Hero.

legomackley That is a good suggestion, I think that if Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle is added then Prismatic Omen is definitely an auto-include and adding more of white's enchantment tutors is warranted.

Jamminmagician Awesome combo, I'll take a look at it and play around with it! I've always loved Realm Razer so an excuse to use it is always welcome. I personally agree with you that I like a more value-based deck myself, so I think tweaking this deck to be less linear and more value-based is something I'd do as well. For Expedition Map I have considered it and think that it could be really powerful. The biggest thing it would search for would be Oboro, Palace in the Clouds considering that there's enough ravnica karoos in a 4C-deck that searching for one isn't super necessary. I haven't loved it in practice but I do think that it is one of those cards that should be considered for this deck.

HonoraryFugu on Azusa, Lost but Oppressing (Competitive EDH)

I think your average cmc is too high, you could be doing a lot more on the earlier turns. You have only 8-10 cards that can be played on turns one and two that help you ramp. Given the way your deck works right now it seems like if I counter or kill your commander on turn 3 before you get to play more lands you are wrecked until turn 5, at which point you probably won't ever come back.

I'd try to remove 50% of the cards you have that cost CMC 5 or greater, and replace them with cheap ramp cards, like mana elves, Burgeoning, Birds of Paradise, Budoka Gardener, Walking Atlas, Skyshroud Ranger, and Sakura-Tribe Scout.

Additionally, there are a lot of great land tutors that can bring out cards like Gaea's Cradle for you, such as Sylvan Scrying, Expedition Map, and Traverse the Ulvenwald.

I'm working on a similar deck and I have a few cards that I'm curious if you ever considered. If so, why leave them out? If not, what do you think?- Budoka Gardener - Centaur Vinecrasher for Recycling Compost - Dragonmaster Outcast because tokens - Scute Mob - Ground Assault - Liege of the Tangle - Rathi Dragon for handling flyers - Traproot Kami for handling flyers - Ulvenwald Hydra for handling flyers

Perpetual on Omnath land recycle

I had the Yavimaya Elder but took him out because he placed the lands in my hand rather than on the field. That Budoka Gardener looks like a good fit.

In terms of the extra ramp:
Rampant Growth
Gruul Signet
Yavimaya Elder
Magus of the Library
Budoka Gardener
Sakura-Tribe Scout
Frontier Guide

Other cards:
Boundless Realms - so gross w/landfall
Zendikar Resurgent - both sides great
Lifecrafter's Bestiary - ditto
Greater Good - definitely want a sac outlet w/ Omnath
Abundance - already a busted effect, super silly with you're thinking about landfallHeroic Intervention - keep your stuff if need to
