Entrancing Melody Discussion

Let's get you some wincons, and fix that landbase.
First: Landbase. Basic stuff, manarocks, and better land cards, and a touch of fetchlands to get us rocking and rolling. Then, guess what, you're playing green. Congrats, you get the luxury of a vast array of tasty morsels called ramp spells, so we'll take advantage of that.
Next, let's look at capitalizing on your commander's strengths: Card draw. We'll add in card draw, and some hand size manipulation to help manage it, along with some ways to make use of all that mana you gain and cards you draw.
- Storm Sculptor + Tishana, Voice of Thunder
Now for some wincons:
-Devastation Tide +Goblin Cannon (with your upcoming infinite mana/card draw combos, draw into this, then ping everyone for infinite damage and win, the ability stacks as many times as you pay the mana for it, before sacrificing itself).
-Spelltwine. - River's Rebuke
-Ghostly Flicker +Aphetto Alchemist (equip bracers to alphetto, tap to untap it and target manarock or kydele for aother infinite mana combo, once you have infinite combos going, you can take multiple turns, draw out your whole deck with psychosis or lab maniac or tishana, or empyrial plate, etc)
Other infinite combos you can look for are Sword of the Paruns or Umbral Mantle equipped to kydele if she's drawn enough cards. The possibilities are vast, just a matter of finding yourself a bit of room for those cards, which shouldn't be too hard. However I'm also aware of budgets, I know I've suggested a LOT of changes, many that you might need to purchase, and while the individual cards aren't too pricey, collectively it's a lot once you look at all the changes. But if you're personally looking to take your deck to the next level, I'll add some more blingy suggestions at the end of this comment.
Last couple of swaps to make:
The bling: Staff of Domination (more kydele comboing)
other cards to consider would be a touch more cantrips and counterspells? Depends on local meta, how often you need to stop people from preventing your comboing off: Pact of Negation Muddle the Mixtures Brainstorm Mystical Tutor

This is exactly what I was thinking when I saw Traxos, Scourge of Kroog as well.
I have been running a mono green stompy since ixalan dropped and one of my biggest problems seemed to come from control magic. A lot of folks in my meta were running Entrancing Melody and such and losing my Ripjaw Raptor and Crocodile of the Crossing was usually too much for me to deal with since they would then trade with my creatures and become a huge 2 for 1 for my opponents (3 for 1 in the case of ripjaw).
Putting in traxos instead might give them a huge body, but at least my deck is built to activate it... theirs might not be :)

Hey! Cool deck you got here! First thing I notice is you need just a little bit more consistency. Opt is very good to help you with this, so you've got that covered. Personally, I'd drop Firefist Adept for more Opts. Although Naban will make the Adept more useful, you're not running many creatures, and coupled with that, you only have two of them, so the odds you'll get to draw him are particularly low. Additionally, Divination isn't too helpful in my opinion. Yes, you draw cards off of it, but it doesn't do much to advance your board state, for this reason Chart A Course is much better as it's less prohibitive, and leaves more mana open for your opponent's turn. Entrancing Melody is better off as a sideboard card IMO, in decks with smaller (or no) creatures it won't be very impactful. By removing these cards you can free up space for some more playsets of non-legendary creatures, which will make you a lot more consistent with your draws. I'd also see about adding in some Sulfur Falls to make your land base more diverse.Academy Journeymage is worth considering, as you'll often be able to cast if for cheap, and Naban will let you bounce two creatures. That's some value. One last thing I'd consider is Magma Spray for dealing with The Scarab God and Rekindling Phoenix which are two very big threats in standard right now. All in all, cool deck, I love seeing Wizards!

Interesting build, chaser12
The only other 'flicker' card I can think of in these dedicated colors for standard is Release to the Wind, which I see in your sideboard.

I would consider dropping the Lay Claim since its an enchantment and wont get cost reduction from your Baral or amulet and at 7 cmc you will need to be through 20 cards of your deck to find that many lands. I would add 2 Entrancing Melody. I would also add 1 land. Maybe Field of Ruin?

azatedel Those sound like great options- thanks! I'll probably sideboard Doomfall, Torment, and Entrancing Melody, because I don't think I've seen a Carnage Tyrant or The Scarab God in my meta yet, but that sounds like a great idea.
