Skyshroud Ranger Looks solid in this deck, almost a second Exploration in the body of an elf.

PlattBonnay, I was thinking of replacing Burgeoning with Exploration since Burgeoning is only from hand; and I've seen how good Life from the Loam can be, so I'll add it when and if I get a copy. Thanks.

Early protection like Ghostly Prison and Propaganda could help early game. Good ramp just maybe add a Land Tax so that you never get behind in land. To play those lands cards like Summer Bloom and Exploration would be great.

Nice catch! You've actually hit on the biggest issue that the budget Cradle-less versions have. I've been meaning to do a write-up here on the primer for it.

In this version of the list, the version with Crop Rotation and Gaea's Cradle, we actually use a different infinite mana combo entirely to solve the Glimpse Problem.

  1. After drawing your entire deck with Glimpse and the normal mana combo, you should have a pretty big amount of mana (over 30 or 40 most likely).
  2. Cast some creatures in your hand to bump creature count up to as high as you can get it reasonably. I don't know the exact number, but I shoot for about 20 creatures to give me wiggle room. Be sure to cast Green Sun's Zenith in between creature casts so you don't deck out.
  3. If Gaea's Cradle is stuck in your hand, use Glamerdye to get it in the yard, then Nantuko Tracer it onto the bottom of your library.
  4. Cast Crop Rotation and fetch out the Gaea's Cradle, then tap it for big mana.
  5. Temur Sabertooth the Nantuko Tracer back to hand, cast Green Sun's Zenith, then cast Nantuko Tracer to put Crop Rotation on the bottom of your library.
  6. Bounce and cast Nantuko Tracer again, which draws you into Crop Rotation. Put the land you sacrificed earlier onto the bottom of your library.
  7. Cast Crop Rotation and sacrifice Gaea's Cradle as the additional cost, and fetch out the land you put into your library earlier.
  8. Temur Sabertooth the Nantuko Tracer back to hand, cast Green Sun's Zenith, then cast Nantuko Tracer to put Crop Rotation on the bottom of your library.
  9. Bounce and cast Nantuko Tracer again, which draws you into Crop Rotation. When it ETBs, put Gaea's Cradle onto the bottom of your library.
  10. Repeat steps 4-8 to generate infinite green mana, and then go through all the normal win steps. Just make sure you keep casting Green Sun's Zenith to keep you alive

In the budget lists, we haven't found the "perfect solution" for the Glimpse problem quite yet. The issue is that we want to preserve "slot integrity", which just means that we try to keep cards as useful as we can outside of the combos. For instance, this is why we use Winds of Rebuke instead of Laboratory Maniac, because Winds of Rebuke is more useful outside of the combo. The best budget solutions we have so far are things like Lightning Greaves or Exploration + Alchemist's Refuge, but since those cards aren't really that good on their own, they compromise slot integrity. For this reason, our budget lists just run Crystal Spray instead of Glimpse of Nature (for now).

If you want to hop on our Discord Server sometime, we'd love to have your help solving this problem!

Exploration and Life from the Loam seem like big misses in a land centric strategy

kamelyan on Titania, Protector of Argoth

Back in standard, when it was just a buck, I got a whole playset of Scapeshift, but now it's insanely expensive; if you can get your hands on one, it will be great for Titania.

Exploration and Crucible of Worlds would be nice, too.

Necro on Surrak Dragonclaw - French EDH

Really, after your Saskia? Next unfriendly deck? I hope, this is only for tournament and not against Pub-Friends

My recommendations after few playtest :

Remove Scroll Rack - this deck is fast. Without massive draw effects, you dont have enough cards for better profit in this artifact. I must say, its good, when you have it in opening hand.

Why Engulf the Shore? Returning your creatures too

Remove Plasm Capture. is hard cost for counterpells :D

Exploration when you have 37 lands? And Temur color dont have too much tutor for enchantments.

Remove Wall of Roots. When you need mana on 2 CMC, try Bloom Tender.

I am confused about Obstinate Baloth. Is his effect necessary for this deck?

That are my 6 cards to remove. Honestly, I know, this deck is mostly builded different. Stabilization of many and counterspells into Surrak's unloading. Then, through the Birthing Pod and Eldritch Evolution, the game is avoided. Maybe Yisan for tutor creature cards?

I have been building a Muldrotha, the Gravetide deck, and one strategy i'm planning to include is the use of the cards Sylvan Reclamation and Rude Awakening. Now I know mono doesn't have the capacity as much for self-mill, but with cards like Azusa, Exploration, Burgeoning, perhaps even Animist's Awakening and Kamahl's Druidic Vow, I think these cards could be of use to you here also?

Avenger of Zendikar and Caged Sun might be a good include here too.
