Great list as well as educational. Also like the other take of the list I made and went more ramp.

FlabbyAbsSpecifically, it is in the 'synergy to the extent of combo' tier. It is really just non-infinite combo. Is Prosperity + Cadaverous Bloom really an infinite combo? No, not really. But it is still a combination of cards that, 70+% of the time, leads to victory. Same with this. In fact, this deck plays very similarly to Prosperous Bloom, in terms of mana production and spells cast.

Hi fungkm-mtg! I've never played a hard combo-control lands deck, mostly because the precedent in legacy has lands decks grinding out long games with punishing fire or setting up a Marit Lage.
That being said, there are several options for a WUB based combo-control deck. The first thing that comes to mind is a Seasons Past loop with a tutor and Splendid Reclamation. You'll have do the math and figure out when it goes infinite for your needs, but it's a way to generate infinite mana and/or landfall triggers. Something like Ob Nixilis, the Fallen or Retreat to Hagra would end the game.
I've played with Storm Cauldron and Manabond before, and it's a blast (mine was in a Borborygmos Enraged shell). I'd highly recommend it, because it's incredibly disruptive. There's also Mana Breach and Land Equilibrium. I've always wanted to try this type of archetype, so if you do please keep me posted on its development! I have a foil Roil Elemental that I pulled back in the day that has sat in my box for years waiting for the right shell, and so I'm personally vested in this idea for you.
A lands deck can also feature the Dakmor Salvage and The Gitrog Monster combo. Skirge Familiar will get you lots of mana, as can one of my personal favorites Cadaverous Bloom. Traditionally Tasigur lists use infinite mana to loop Reality Shift to mill the table, but with a big-mana set up I'd run something with more flair like Villainous Wealth. If you're unfamiliar with the Reality Shift loop, a quick google should get you the basics.
You still have access to Dark Depths and a suite of cards to cheat it out in Thief of Blood, AEther Snap, Vampire Hexmage, and Hex Parasite if you want redundancy with Thespian's Stage. Having Marit Lage as a backup is always a good idea.
Walk the Aeons is a personal favorite card of mine, and it's not hard to figure out a way to go infinite with it if you have the support. Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Crucible of Worlds is enough to do the trick.
All this thinking about sultai lands has me wanting to build a sister deck to my main one now :P

Gitrog users, has anyone considered Cadaverous Bloom or is it a little too costly? I figured since most builds can loop Riftsweeper if need be, that the exiled cards shouldn't matter.
Outside of what my paper meta doesn't like running (Mana Crypt, Vault, Ancient Tomb, Sol Ring), is there anything else my list is missing? Aside from more alters?

Cadaverous Bloom add this to the other deck not on here you know the one.

I used that example simply because it is so devestating. We need to remember that legacy is a format where Force of Will is legal and as such a stupid amount of other ridiculous cards are potential problems. I think moving forward you want to look at grixis delver lists to get a basic framework. With all the fetches Deathrite Shaman starts to look really good. As far as making the cycling effects work I imagine a gatherer search for "as additional cost discard" would help to find some of the filler you may need. An interesting idea would be cards similar to Sanitarium Skeleton that can be discarded and brought back to discard them again would be useful. Are you familar with Cadaverous Bloom? Seems like it might be handy as well since you could get all the discard effects you would need and extra mana to do with as you please.
