Wirewood Lodge and Genesis Hydra pump enough mana into him and he's a good way to dig for your sword,staff,or mantle.

i would say if you are on the fence about Eternal Witness, just do it. it's better in some instances than den protector since you get your card immediately upon it entering the battlefield. i run it in every green deck i have alongside Den Protector. it's just that useful. especially when you can Worldly Tutor for it on your opponent's end step, cast it, and get back whatever you need right there. it pairs well with Vedalken Orrery, which makes your entire deck instant speed.

o also suggest Courser of Kruphix for land off the top of your library. it really outperforms in EDH. the downside is irrelevant 99% of the time.

i will also suggest Genesis Hydra for the cast trigger. it makes a killer mana sink, too.

Hi! Thanks a lot for your comment and upvote!

In the early version of the deck I used Genesis Hydra and yes, I have considered Genisis Wave, but I didn't test it. I realy like this card, It usualy ends the game. I'll think about testing it. Thanks for your suggestion.

Thank you for your suggestion earlier of Portal it helps me out especially with the cards going to my hand.

Looking through your list have you thought about Genesis Hydra as it is a card that is essentially a tutor and away to pump out large amounts of Mana the next turn

Maybe Hall of Gemstone as a way to shut down opponents playing multicolored decks and stopping your cards from being countered from colored cards other than green.

Have you thought about adding Cream of the Crop to help look for key pieces of your deck?

It's even a May if you don't want to.

It is a really neat interaction with cards like Genesis Hydra.

Also if you have a chance please take a look at mine Selvala, Queen of the wild
