Really like this planeswalker but I think the theme is making it a little weak (plus I think you have too many creatures and lands in comparison with the other types but I don't know, never tested).

I would build something similar with genesis and all but let me suggest

Nantuko Cultivator , perfect when flooding a little. Excavating Anurid

Murasa Behemoth

Winding Way

Fact or Fiction

That's just the top of my head because I have been drafting mh1 recently and I thought of Oathbreaker/graveyard stuff.

Great list! Shenanigans from the new MH1 seems like a better card over Putrefy for this deck. It doesn’t have creature removal but it looks like you have plenty of other spells that take care of that. Shenanigans allows you to have strict artifact removal but also adds the extra Dredge which seems clutch. I don’t think you’ll need these but here are a few budget options you could try out in: Geomancer's Gambit , Excavating Anurid , Springbloom Druid , and Winding Way .

I know you are on a relative budget but Wrenn and Six seems very relevant for this as well.

Boundless Realms although high CMC works wonders with any landfall trigger.

Good luck! +1
