Genju of the Cedars Discussion

This is mighty nice! I also do highly recommend some utility lands, since you're running so few spells. Also for one turn wins, you should try the Scapeshift + Crucible of Worlds combo, with all their addons (Ramunap Excavator, Life from the Loam, Splendid Reclamation <- explodes your landfall triggers after Scapeshift)!
Also some cards that work really well with this sort of approach:

seshiro_of_the_orochi I was afraid of going lower in creatures because I have lots of auras, but so far it is doing good. Of course, not a good thing if they kill my only creature on the field, maybe I will add an extra Genju of the Cedars to have some blocking until centaurs rampage onto the battlefield.

try to add more enchant land like those:
Abundant Growth / Consecrate Land / Elvish Guidance / Genju of the Cedars / Genju of the Falls / Genju of the Fields / Imprisoned in the Moon / Market Festival / New Horizons / Nylea's Presence / One with Nature / Sheltered Aerie / Squirrel Nest / Urban Burgeoning / Utopia Sprawl / Weirding Wood
This way, you will be able to untap them with the +2 effect of Estrid.
Also, you should add more card to draw
Then, you should add some recursion spells like
Also, you should add some cards to protect you like
Then, you could add some cards to take permanents from opponents like

This look interesting, would Herald of the Pantheon, Semblance Anvil (cost reduction) or Genju of the Cedars (alternative beater) be worth considering here? Or the combo of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth with Spreading Algae?

I tried this with Natural Affinity and Sylvan Advocate a while back. The haste on Sylvan Awakening makes it a lot better. A beatdown plan isn't off the table. You actually reminded me to look back over the decklists.

You could add some extra ramp via Utopia Sprawl or Fertile Ground, since you are already running Arbor Elf and Voyaging Satyr, this might help if you don't draw one of the Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Another possibility is Bloodrush, cards like Ghor-Clan Rampager which can act like a pump spell or play out as a creature. Or maybe something like Genju of the Cedars which adds to your Devotion but can also latter turn the land into a creature, it also gives you another one drop. Lastly Domri Rade seems like a good fit for this deck.
I guess the big question is what sort of decks have been a challenge for you to deal with?

Since you're interested on cards that make full use of lands, may I suggest Genju of the Cedars. A little slow, but great recursion. Red options: Genju of the Spires & Crusher Zendikon. Natural Affinity is great for late game. Other cards to consider: Crop Sigil, Fork in the Road, Grapple with the Past, Groundskeeper, Ramunap Excavator, Hostile Desert, Restore, Splendid Reclamation, Terravore, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Vessel of Nascency, Anthousa, Setessan Hero, Krosan Restorer. Great cheap greenies: Kalonian Tusker, Garruk's Companion, Leatherback Baloth
