Cream of the Crop
Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may look at the top X cards of your library, where X is that creature's power. If you do, put one of those cards on top of your library and the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.

Cream of the Crop Discussion

So, I've been having some difficulties finding some of the cards in this list, so these are my preliminary subsitutions:
I'm also looking at a slot for Groundskeeper since it'l be our third method of mass land retrieval.

yeah im still looking.... Cream of the Crop is almost exactly what im looking for but not quite.... considering the low power of early Treefolk that I can play prior to having Leaf-Crowned Elder out.... fetchlands/improving the manabase is a project im gonna work on for another time; but agreed can be improved upon.

Possible cards to cut
forbidden orchard - don't need color fixing this bad, giving creatures to your opponenets seems loose
rupture spire - I think your mana is fine without needing this card. It's very slow and sets you back one turn, not worth it imo
all the vivid's - I think these would be better as Scattered Groves, Sheltered Thicket or Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade. then you can run the mirage slow fetches as well, like Grasslands, Mountain Valley and the like
aether vial - seems much to slow, and you have to many differing mana costs to know where to stop upticking. it would suck to tick up to 7 then draw a 6 drop for example
soul's majesty- could be Rishkar's Expertise. this has been one of my most favorite cards from the last couple of years
where ancients tread - could be Warstorm Surge, 1 more mana much more damage
zhur-taa ancient - Mirari's Wake just benifits you, therfore stronger i think
siege behemoth - I'm not sure about this one, i think there could be stronger cards out there but if you like it keep running it
Some possible additions
Etali, Primal Storm card's super good
Angel of Serenity removal is good
Avacyn, Angel of Hope anti removal is good
Xenagos, God of Revels hasty big things are good
Steel Hellkite - removal is good
Vizier of the Menagerie - semmi card draw is clever
Cream of the Crop - set up your mayeal
Sunpetal Grove and similar lands are good
I like the deck and it's a very stong strategy, hope i gave you some food for thought.

I prefer one-sided effects, the same reason I don't run Field of Ruin, same thought on the on the Storm Cauldron I try not to help my opponents. In regards Cream of the Crop I'd rather run Elemental Bond, something I have recently removed. Thanks for the feedback though. I have seen decks run these cards I just don't think there is space for them in this deck.

Have you considered Storm Cauldron? Amazing card to give you extra landfall with all your extra land per turn cards, and denies mana to opponents.
Cream of the Crop is also really good for card selection every time you make an elemental.
