I forgot to mention it in my last comment, but Drownyard Temple can do a lot of work when paired with Constant Mists.

elgosu1337 on Competitive Lord Windgrace Lands Win cEDH

You should probably cut the cycling lands and play all the relevant fetches. Even if you run out of lands to fetch, they continue to provide landfall and land sacrifice triggers. Squandered Resources is a must to provide a burst of mana. Storm Cauldron is really good since it makes it hard for opponents to tap lands to cast spells. Multani should be cut.

I think if your playgroups have problems with land destruction, then they aren't really cEDH. You definitely need more infinite combos and stax and cheap removal to play at a cEDH level as well. I wouldn't classify my Windgrace deck as cEDH, but you can definitely check it out for lots of combo ideas to win as early as turn 3. You could use Dakmor Salvage for the infinite combo with Gitrog. Drownyard Temple can also give infinite landfall, especially if you have Ashnod's Altar to sacrifice landfall tokens.

I saw another guy who was doing the Elementals and lands thing as well but he had Horde of Notions as his commander. Anyway, you could try Coat of Arms and Shared Animosity to make your Elemental tokens bigger. Pitiless Plunderer makes more mana when your creatures die. Embodiment of Fury and Embodiment of Insight can turn your lands into Elementals before you sacrifice them.

If you're running Animate Dead, you might as well add in Worldgorger Dragon which gives you infinite landfall and hence infinite tokens to sacrifice.

Drownyard Temple should also easily give you infinite landfall if you sacrifice the tokens to Ashnod's Altar.

You can take a look at the writeup for my Windgrace deck for more land dancing ideas.

You could add other ways of dealing damage from landfall for redundancy, like Retreat to Hagra and Tunneling Geopede, or adding Ashnod's Altar or Altar of Dementia for Omnath's elementals. To get infinite landfall with Valakut, you could try Worldgorger Dragon with Animate Dead or Dance of the Dead. Drownyard Temple works with some token generators and Ashnod's Altar. Life and Limb with Sporemound also works if you cast Prismatic Omen after Life and Limb.

Commander / EDH* elgosu1337


Finally managed to concoct a Windgrace deck blending together most of the other lands-matter legendaries. This is a land sacrifice, recursion, discard, bounce, and animation engine with lots of ways to get infinite landfall, like Sporemound with Life and Limb, Drownyard Temple with Stone-Seeder Hierophant, Mirrorpool with Titania and Amulet of Vigor, Nim Deathmantle to sacrifice animated lands, or Cloudstone Curio to keep replaying and reusing Lord Windgrace and Nissa, Worldwaker. Of course, the classic Dakmor Salvage infinite discards with Gitrog is included, with Borborygmos Enraged as a discard outlet for infinite damage. It's also an all permanents version for Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire and Primal Surge.

Thanks for the tips and suggestions! I really do like the versatility of Vanish into Memory and will be making that switch for sure. Energy Arc and Herald of Secret Streams seem to be interesting, but I've had several instances in my playgroup where the flying from Abzan Falconer has come in handy on the defense, and the lifegain from Riot Control has kept me alive from minor poking that didn't warrant a removal spell. I may even need to go down my awaken pet cards of Coastal Discovery and Encircling Fissure! Mirrorweave might replace my Cataclysmic Gearhulk or Urza's Ruinous Blast.

As for your deck... it seems sweet! I think I'll even replace my Burnished Hart with a Thaumatic Compass  Flip. Would definitely recommend a Nimbus Maze as an untapped triple land for Kozilek. I also recommend Drownyard Temple just as a recurrable land. Cards like Anticipate and Winds of Rebuke seem to be underpowered as you have other cards in the deck that do their job better. Would recommend Metallurgic Summonings as a less frail Docent of Perfection  Flip or Talrand, Sky Summoner. You do have an amount of tapped duals/utility lands but how has Amulet of Vigor been? Then again everyone's meta is different so I don't know how low and fast your deck needs to be. My deck tries to be as creature light as I can since I'm usually trying to wipe the board, but Nezahal, Primal Tide, Kefnet the Mindful look good with their ways to protect themselves and to draw cards.
