Glacial Chasm Discussion

If you want to maximize the landfall triggers start replacing non basic lands without basic land types with off colour fetches like Windswept Heath. It makes scapeshift super dumb when you can eat all your lands, replace them all with fetches, and then crack them all for basics and duals untapped.

So big dumb creatures that land fast and hit hard is your problem?
You are dying around turn 5 though so anything costing more than 5 in my deck should probably be taken out for your purposes.
Focusing in on some of the pillows of best use to you would be:
You might avoid Ghostly Prison style effects depending on how your opponent's deck works since if he has all the mana then prison isn't really an issue for him.
If you would prefer to win before he goes off you might try something more akin to Mistress of Poisons which has 2 combos that can go off as early as turn 3. I never made the deck consistently able to win in that time frame so you would have to beef it up but the potential is there.
The better and cheaper option would be if we take a look at 2 or 3 decks you already have and we can maybe touch those up.

Storm Cauldron is awesome in windgrace with all the xtra lands per turn you can do. Slows opponents down and gives you lots of xtra landfall triggers. Glacial Chasm is another good card for in here once you have the crucible or excavator out.

Would Eidolon of the Great Revel have a place? Its another punisher for that cheaper, targeted removal. And if you're willing to play Sire Of Insanity then maybe Oppression finds a home. Everlasting Torment so the punishing damage sticks? And Glacial Chasm and Koskun Falls I think would both play well with the sit back and watch the world burn plan you envision.

A lot of good cards here so making cuts gets a little tougher but we can try... you have a spike at 5CMC so maybe that's the best place to start.
Hornet Queen, while cool, is and expensive overall so maybe cut for those reasons? You would still have 2 targets to pod for/away to get to your top end. Perhaps you could go without one of Liliana Vess or Bring to Light as you seem to have a goodly number of tutors?
In this deck I would think that Edric, Spymaster of Trest helps your opponents as much as you and may make your plan a little harder to enact.
Despite the number of non-basic lands, given the theme of value on ETB/LTB I'm surprised not to see Solemn Simulacrum here. Though Graven Cairns seems an odd inclusion as red is the only color you're not playing. Is Expedition Map purely for color fixing? If so, I would think Wood Elves would fit the deck better. And is Glacial Chasm part of the strategy or was it meant to be Glacial Fortress?
I think this one will need some playtesting to see what comes out in the wash so to speak. I like all of your creature choices overall, there are just too many and I think it may come down to pulling the ones you least enjoy putting into play.

Thank you for your feedback!
In my testing I've actually found the opposite to be true. Glacial Chasm protects me while I get things going, fetches can thin my deck and help my hit my lands on curve, and Dark Depths / Strip Mine have been my most reliable wincons. I search for the depths combo and mine or loam with intuition most often.
The mana also allows me to more reliably cast each permanent type per turn.

I understand your doubts, and what could you advise me to "protect" the deck?
In relation to the commander, Muldrotha, the Gravetide is the "support" to complete several strategies but its true objective is to ramp to the deck with its ability to dominate the cemetery. To give you protection I have the Bear Umbra (only protection ...? What a delight this card with the muldrota!), I also have the Command Beacon that is indispensable for Muldrota! In my area there is a lot of control deck with many enchantments and a lot of removal, including Leyline of the Void that is a mess ... and many Bojuka Bog ... But this is part of magic, we will always catch counters our strategy and by this is that this deck does not focus only on the ability of the muldrota ...
You already have Reclamation Sage and Seal of Primordium, but you can for example change the combo of infinite turns (which is what I could not yet accomplish ...) Thopter Assembly and Time Sieve to include Acidic Slime and / or Caustic Caterpillar ...
Attention ... this deck is also a serious case for this type of opponents ... You always have the ability to be blocking their strategy with Contamination, or Decree of Silence, or Glen Elendra Archmage, or Glacial Chasm ...

Since you're running birthing pod, you should look into getting a good birthing pod chain package going. I'll look into it later and post it here.
