hey neat deck idea, here are some cards that might be worth trying : Growth Spiral Skyshroud Ranger Arboreal Grazer Elvish Pioneer Sakura-Tribe Scout and maybe Atarka's Command .

I've been wondering about reclaimer with Ranger of Eos / Ranger-Captain of Eos alongside Steppe Lynx / Arboreal Grazer / Elvish Pioneer / Sakura-Tribe Scout / Skyshroud Ranger powered by Life from the Loam .

The big battle is Chalice of the Void on one, which makes something like Qasali Pridemage mandatory maindeck, Anafenza, the Foremost and teeg do a lot to help protect the deck from a lot of the combos currenlty floating around but when you are already a little light on slots because you need a land count it starts looking real sketchy.

There is the option of going naya and looking to Scapeshift out of the game, but that quickly becomes a combo list.

1-drops are great with Chulane's ability, and I think you could take advantage of with Elvish Pioneer and Essence Warden / Soul Warden / Soul's Attendant and Hedron Crab .

You could also add more creatures that bounce your own creatures and replay them for value. Maybe check out Kor Skyfisher and Whitemane Lion and Jeskai Barricade and Quickling .

Hickory Woodlot enters tapped and I don't like any lands that do that. Elvish Pioneer is okay but I have an extremely low land count because I usually only want and need 1-2 lands per game anyway. I consistently play Marwyn on turn 2 anyway, I have tons of dorks and rocks in the deck to make it possible and easy. Hunter's Prowess is interesting, I've seen it before but never really considered it until you mentioned it, but I play pretty much every decent green tutor so that card is a maybe. Good but not quite good enough in a budgetless list. I really like both Season of Growth and Viridescent Wisps but I have no idea what to cut, because every card in the deck is so important and functional, kind of like a puzzle piece. I don't know what I would take out. Suggestions?

And with just a tap ability like Walking Atlas , you can Retreat to Coralhelm to create an arbitrary number of landfall triggers.

I can see one possible use: during a Warp World combo, if you use an Eternal Witness to return a Wooded Foothills from your graveyard to your hand, your Arboreal Grazer can put it on the battlefield. This is a thing the old Elvish Pioneer couldn't do, because it only allowed basic land.

Since it enters tapped, this doesn't net you any more mana, just more permanents. So, I don't think this is a very good plan.

Hickory Woodlot can help get Marwyn out on turn two. Turn one Elvish Pioneer can get her out on turn two also, while being just as useful once she's already on the board, buffing her and giving you an extra land to play with. Season of Growth is a new card I'm excited about for Marwyn. I find that Hunter's Prowess works just as well as Soul's Majesty for drawing cards, and also pumps Marwyn allowing her to tap for more after you untap her. Marwyn doesn't win by combat damage, so it doesn't matter if your combat step gets wasted as long as you can untap her in the second main phase. Viridescent Wisps is a cantrip that "pays for itself" by buffing Marwyn.

Since you have such heavy draw and land fetch I think your deck might benefit from cards like Arboreal Grazer , Elvish Pioneer or Explore . Some other helpful creatures might be: Augur of Bolas or Spellkeeper Weird . As for your win-conditions I could see adding a couple Fireball 's to the list. On the control/creature hate side, I think adding some removal like Select for Inspection or Lightning Bolt could easily fit in.

By far the most effective budget green ramp tools are Arbor Elf / Utopia Sprawl . If you aren't going that route, Elvish Mystic / Llanowar Elves (get the older, cheaper, versions) does a lot. If you need these to be spells Edge of Autumn 's cycling makes it superior to all your listed options.

Next up its weird options. Sakura-Tribe Elder can work in 'death matters' lists, especially alongside Caravan Vigil , but its neiche.

Arboreal Grazer / Elvish Pioneer can sortof work when you draw enough cards, but getting that many lands to hand normally means its a Life from the Loam list, which is anything but budget.
