Oh I forgot, how about some cards to return all lands from your graveyard into play? Things like Splendid Reclamation or The Mending of Dominaria; they drastically improve your Scapeshift performance as well. And I can't see Courser of Kruphix, it's just amazing with effects that provide extra land drops, and it mitigates some of the self-drain caused by fetchlands.

Courser of Kruphix, Ramunap Excavator, and Knight of the Reliquary are all great cards on theme. More fetchlands are 100% better than lotus field,

Neat deck, how many of these land ramp decks do you have now????? Couple of suggestions.... Castle Garenbrig, Courser of Kruphix, Oracle of Mul Daya and Commune with the Gods.

Cut the Luminous Broodmoths and replace them with Siege Rhinos.

Cut Ishkanah, Grafwidow, as you will never get delirium.

The Skull Prophets, Elvish Visionarys, and Cavalier of Dawn seems bad, I would cut them, and trim the Brain Maggots down to 1 probably.

Consider replacing these cards with things like Courser of Kruphix,, Murderous Rider, Llanowar Elves/Elvish Mystic.

Here are my thoughts on the deck. Your list seems to be a bit more grindy than most, which is fine for some decks, but as a Food Chain deck, we want to be as fast as possible. I'll list the changes I'd make while still keeping the list under $500.

Changes:

  • Fierce Guardianship: I love this card in decks where you want your commander in play like Tasigur, the Golden Fang, but in this deck, our commander only serves as a Food Chain outlet. This card just isn't right for the deck. Replacement: Pact of Negation

  • Kenrith's Transformation: This card is better suited for grindy decks. Unlike Oko, Thief of Crowns, this card can only deal with creatures and can't take out problematic stax artifacts. I'd replace it with Narset, Parter of Veils because she hurts our opponents with her static ability while allowing us to dig at least 4 cards deep for a tutor, combo piece, or disruption.

  • 2 Swamps out for Spell Pierce and Muddle the Mixture. The first card is underrated and can win counterspell wars. The second can be used to find Flash or Demonic Tutor to find a different combo piece like Food Chain.

  • Riftsweeper out for Wall of Roots. Riftsweeper is way too situational and often ends up as a dead card in hand. I've never liked it (especially when you have 3 combos).

  • Polluted Delta out for Gemstone Caverns. Caverns is sooo good when you can exile Eternal Scourge or Misthollow Griffin with it. It's also better ramp.

  • Courser of Kruphix out for Regrowth. CoK isn't powerful enough and we need more graveyard recursion in case our combos are disrupted.

  • Toxic Deluge is so bad for this deck due to the high density of mana dorks we run. Also, a board wipe shouldn't be necessary for this deck because we aim to win before a board wipe is necessary. I'd personally replace it with Perplex because I really like having tutors even if they're limited and 3 mana (but on a budget, you gotta do what you gotta do). However, I could also see the addition of Elvish Spirit Guide. This one's mainly a meta choice and it depends on how consistent you think the deck needs to be.

  • Lastly, I'd replace Zagoth Triome with Summoner's Pact. Having more tutors is always the way to go.

I'd also consider trying to mold the mana base to fit the restriction of Tainted Pact. I'll be trying to do that in my own $500 build of this deck and once I've built it, you'll be able to see it in the description of my primer: cEDH Whale Wolf Primer

I love the deck and I like the inclusion of the alternate Hulk line (I'm assuming it's due to the absence of Tainted Pact. I hope this helped you and please let me know if you need further help or clarification! Cheers!

A couple things with this.

1) hi I'm Tom, I've played Magic for ~7 years and I've been teaching new players for a little over a year now.

2) now onto the deck. You have a couple weird picks that I want to discuss.

Elvish Archdruid seems an odd choice. The odds are it comes down on turn 3 and very, very rarely generates more than two mana- sometimes just . You'd probably be better off with Elvish Mystic. It'll let you play a little faster.

Parallel Lives,Enlightened Tutor, and Endless Ranks of the Dead are all functional only when Open the Graves is in play. Having two cards that synergize with one another is good, encouraged, even, so long as they slot naturally into the deck. However, none of these four cards support your hydra theme at all. You could fill these slots with more ramp or more hydras to make this deck more consistent and focused.

Consider cutting black and white, and if you've ever played commander you might consider building around Zaxara, the Exemplary or Gargos, Vicious Watcher.

3) some cards I might recommend include Unbound Flourishing, Rampant Growth, Courser of Kruphix, Voracious Hydra, and Tuskguard Captain.

4) if you want to overhaul the deck completely, go Blue/Green- it has excellent ramp and +1/+1 counter payoffs.

4to16characters on Pinball Wizard - Karona, False God EDH

Have you considered the following:

Dryad of the Ilysian Grove as a direct replacement for Chromatic Lantern.

Nomad Mythmaker for aura recursion.

Herald of the Pantheon and Starfield Mystic for enchantment cost lowering.

Unbridled Growth and Abundant Growth for cheaper Land Optimization and draw early game.

Seal of Cleansing as a removal option.

Courser of Kruphix as a way to filter lands off your top deck (and is an enchantment itself).

Spectral Grasp, Vow of Duty, Vow of Malice for protecting yourself from Karona.

Fists of the Demigod, and Edge of Divinity as other voltron pieces?

Also phenomenal cards are already in here but was just curious if you'd seen or added any of the above?

Courser of Kruphix instead of Lifegift?

Also, Tectonic Reformation is useful too.

...and yes, bouncing all creatures puts your awakened lands back in your hand. Nice if you didn’t need them as lands though; discard with Windgrace.
