WarlordWiggles on Reki, the History of Kamigawa

Things missing from this deck:Nylea, God of the Hunt: Not actually missing, I just don't have the card in hand yet to add into the list. I'd likely replace the non-creature mana accelerant (Overgrowth) to fit her in.

Staff of Domination: Missing because it creates infinite combos with Karametra's Acolyte. This deck isn't meant to have infinite loops, though there may be some unintentional loops I don't know about yet, and this one is incredibly abusive. I play decks with those types of loops against groups that are prepared.

Things that could potentially be added:Paradox Engine: Another way to create the kind of loop that Staff of Domination and Karametra's Acolyte are, it also is incredibly powerful with the way the deck actually plays.

Verdeloth the Ancient: Combos well with Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Rishkar, Peema Renegade as a light mana engine. Also works well with Cryptolith Rite and plays into a more token based version of the deck.

Avenger of Zendikar: Same deal as verdeloth, but also triggers for double the power from Baru, Fist of Krosa as well.

Desert Twister: Could replace Krosan Grip if needed, but Split Second is a power mechanic.

Thrun, the Last Troll: If this deck takes a turn towards more Voltron type play then this is your troll. Great to just hook stuff up on and smash face.

Planar Bridge: Potentially very powerful but it directly puts the card in play it does not cast the card. This means there's no triggered replacement with Reki.

Cultivate and the like: Intentionally missing because most of our mana accelerants are creature based and we want to put Reki into play as fast as possible. Great if going the Baru/Avenger of Zendikar plan.

Beast Within instead Desert Twister

I would like to play Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, Trygon Predator, Altered Ego and Progenitor Mimic in a simic deck like this

Karzalar on Enter the Infinite my Dear Elves!

3 removals, like you said, is definitely way too low. Of course, doesn't have a LOT of removal, but you can consider those :

Scour from Existence, Bramblecrush, Desert Twister, Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Reclaiming Vines. Land destruction is good for those who use Glacial Chasm, which is bad for your strategy. All Is Dust ONLY if you're in a pinch.

To a certain extent, you can go the route of making everything on the board an artifact with Mycosynth Lattice and all the green artifact/enchantment removal becomes effective against anything - even lands.

Also, an elf deck without Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury? BLASPHEMY! (I'm joking.)

Notable elves to consider : Glissa Sunseeker, Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip.

Non-elf too good to pass : Eternal Witness.

Notable utility : Mirri's Guile is a free pseudo scry 3, every turn. Abundance if you do not need any other land drop OR if your absolutely need a land, you can choose... AND! If you got Sylvan Library out with it, it transforms it into a free Draw 3 every turn due to its replacement effect!

Hope this helps a bit!

Collected Company would certainly be of big help. Sol Ring is banned in Duel Commander which is the main format I happen to play.As for Sylvan Library I ordered one online last week and hope it will arrive soon. I will soon make some changes: i'll add Regal Force and Mystifying Maze and other cards. Beast Within will certainly substitute Desert Twister sooner or later.

Thanks for your positivity Despionnage

First off, welcome to MTG. It's a fantastic game.

Now on to the suggestions. A lot of them aren't budget, but they are things to keep in mind.

Collected Company, while not being budget, is a fantastic card for the amount of creatures you are running with many of them running in the less than 3 mana range.

Birds of Paradise is a must need ramp card for any deck running green. Sol Ring is also a must need ramp card.

Desert Twister is a little high on the mana side. Possible Beast Within would be better.

Sylvan Library is really good for card draw.

That's all I've got for now.

Good luck on building!

VietMoneys I'm almost ready (after a little cleanup of my magic area) to start building my four color non- Dune deck. I think I'm going to make another mono deck too with Blind Seer as Paul Atreides post-blinding. But the non-blue versioni is going to have every desert possible and all of the flavor cards like Desert Twister and Razia's Purification along with all the wurms possible.

Tormod's Crypt for more graveyard hate. Nevinyrral's Disk is a good reset button. Desert Twister is high CMC, but for what its worth, you can nail a pesky Planeswalker with it if you need to. I'd go for Tranquility over some of your other choices, just to get the mana cost down a bit. Naturalize and Wear Away are other cheap spells that Disenchant. Every green deck can benefit from running an Eternal Witness, as well.
