qwikster I tried out Eternity Vessel for a few months in an older build a year and a half ago and in practice, it's too expensive to want to cast on your turn and there is always a better option in hand anyway. If you DO cast it, then that's basically your whole turn using your mana on an artifact that isn't going to do much when it comes out for another turn. It's just not worth it IMO and we have plenty of ways to gain life.
Zolt I know of the synergy Angel's Grace has with Ad Nauseam, but we honestly don't need it. Most cards are cmc 3 or under which means we can keep the ad nauseam train going pretty deep as is while being able to sac Children of Korlis or have an Ivory Tower ready to recoup life right after. If I were to turn this into a CEDH deck, I would include it to halt game winning combos early on, but I want to maintain this just under CEDH as much as possible. I'd rather have it's slot open for another card.

No, the counter ability on Eternity Vessel is a replacement effect, not a triggered ability. You can tell because triggered abilities always start with "when", "whenever", or "at". The landfall ability is a triggered ability fwiw.

So I came across a card that I think would work with Yarok but I’m still unsure.
It’s the condition with the life total I’m not sure about. When Eternity Vessel ETB would it get double the counters?

Khalni Heart Expedition is great in a landfall deck, since it enables instant speed landdrops, while being way cheaper than most fetch lands. Instant blockers with Omnath, Locus of Rage, instant speed stealing with Roil Elemental, instant carddraw with Tatyova, Benthic Druid, the possibilities are endless. Especially with Eternity Vessel it's a great way to not die by damage :D

These suggestions are going to be 1-for-1 replacements as far as mana cost is concerned:
These suggestions are more or less "maybe-board-esque" includes that I don't know why they aren't in the deck:
Phantasmal Image is a 2-CMC copy a creature so you can hit it with Gyruda and keep it moving. Dies to any kind of removal, so it might be an okay reanimate target.
Voidwalk a flyer after Gyruda is out.
Victimize is kind of clutch since you'll be milling all sorts of stuff.
Bitter Ordeal keeps looking better. Like every time I read it, especially if you are recurring clones.
I don't like this card, but why not Dream Halls? Keep jamming stuff out. I hate to think that Vilis would be a dead card in your hand because you're only running 31 lands.
Stitch Together because good cards are good.
Mirror Mockery because ETBs exist in your deck amongst a few cards.
So not as much replacement. It's pretty good as it is. I think if you were to lean in to what I'm suggesting, it'd be more ETB focused. I don't think that's quite as neat, but ya know, it's stuff with reasons.
Ted talk for how do you can tribe, thank?

Eternity Vessel? Play it, save your (likely) high life total and 1. If anyone tries to aggro you, good luck trying to deal with resets, plus 2. You can use Ad Nauseam/Bolas's Citadel/Necropotence type effects to spike yourself down, play a land, gain 30 life or so, and bam, you're back to normal and gained life for your commander cost (if needed). Not to mention 3. If you use your commanders activated ability, you can just get that life back every landfall.

I like this so much better!! But There is so much you can do with counters.
For Mainstream run infect, wither, poison.
For Timmy do a search for "each creature you control with a +1/+1 counter on it" and you will come up with a bunch of ways to evolve a board state of (flying,trample,menace,first strike,death touch,life link,reach, indestructible) wienies with 100 +1/+1 counters on them.
Personally i like to use the proliferate mechanic to abuse any storage land / storage rock. i also like to abuse cards like Magistrate's Scepter, Eternity Vessel, Djinn of Wishes,& Mindless Automaton etc.
Can't wait to see which direction you take this deck.
