Gaea's Blessing Discussion

You can also run Gaea's Blessing instead of Dread and Worldspine Wurm if you wanted a budget shuffle option. I personally don't like shufflers when running Life from the Loam but it is an option to go infinite.

The problem with the new Gaea's Blessing breakfast hulk combo is that the package moves at instant speed so they can just do everything in response to the damage tigger. Plus they don't have to fetch Viscera Seer (you can use the damage trigger to kill Narcomoeba) so you can get Grand Abolisher. But other than that situation, it craps on traditional breakfast hulk, yes.
Your other option could be the inclusion of a ping creature. There are four that are worth mention:
Cunning Sparkmage - Fairly basic but has haste, so he can do his thing the turn he drops.
Vithian Stinger - No haste but can be unearthed on combo turn, giving him more resilience.
Izzet Staticaster - doesn't double as a combo piece but is a house as far as killing off dorks.
I'm not sure if they're good enough for the deck, however they feel anti-meta since there is such a reliance on aman dorks and in general 1 toughness creatures. And the fact that other than Staticaster, they can all be coupled with Keen Sense/Curiosity for CA and with Dramatic Scepter to act as a win condition.

If you have 8+ cards in your hand with the frog on the battlefield and have a shuffler effect in your deck in the form of Gaea's Blessing or Kozilek the Butcher, you can sculpt the perfect 7 card hand by discarding salvage, dredge, returning salvage to hand and maybe putting a "draw a card" trigger from the frog on the stack. Continue you this loop because you must discard to 7 before your turn ends, and with your draw triggers, you can pick the perfect 7 and discard the rest. Kozilek makes it so you cannot mill yourself out, as long as you can discard the Kozilek.
Also, Seismic Assault effects are not infinite in your deck because you have no shuffling effects. You can only dredge if you have the 2 cards in your library, so at MOST, your deck does 100 damage (with a more reasonable amount being in the 70ish range).
I do love the deck though! It is super sweet!

StopShot: I have thought about Aven Mindcensor for this deck multiple times. I crrently have it maybeboarded and it owuld be one of the cards which would be an easy swap. I have also thought about Silence (and in the past have actually stopped a hulk deck with it) however the new hulk line which has been discovered recently is Silence-proof. For reference it's Nomads en-Kor, Cephalid Illusionist, Viscera Seer and Zulaport Cutthroat with Gaea's Blessing and Narcomoeba in the library. From there you just mill until you hit jellyfish, sac it to seer and then keep milling unitl you hit blessing to resuffle.
That being said, as you mentioned Silence is still very good (I swapped abolisher out for it in my Thrasios deck and have not looked back). I will maybeboard it for now.
I have found that Aura Shards in this build is not actually as good as it might first seem. The problem with it is that you have to play it and then have a creature you can ETB with. The other thing is that it draws a lot of hate, so generally it gets removed pretty quickly. This means you can't just set it and forget it for later. Don't get me wrong, it's great in a stax deck but when your focus is combo then Qasali Pridemage is better. Even against stax, I have found that targetted removal is the more solid option.
If you've got some time though I would be keen to get your thoughts on "cEDH" version of this list: Just Stay Dead: cEDH Edition. It's basically the same list but has been tweaked to drop some of the more rounded cards for speed.

Hope you dont run into anything that mills. Probably won't. But it would really suck here. Any cards you could use to restart your library? Gaea's Blessing maybe

Hello, congrats on the deck + primer, it's very well made.
What are your thoughts regarding the cards in Guilds of Ravnica ?
I think Underrealm Lich might be an interesting addition (I'm not playing cEDH so for me it's great anyway, but what do you think for cEDH?). If I'm not mistaken Underrealm Lich makes it so you cannot whiff with Gaea's Blessing and so adds to the resilience of drawing the whole deck (+ you have a lot more control of what goes to the graveyard first).

You play green, man!
Leave all this silly fixing with lands to colors that don't know how to ramp and color fix.
If you are willing to spend a bit and don't mind to play creature ramp:
Counterspells are bad in maelstrom. You never want to see them from cascade, its the worst. Or at least play counterspells with some alternative upside. Also, 4 mana counters mostly suck.
Also, some cards are mostly useless
