Glowspore Shaman Discussion

Hello, I love this deck!
I've tweaked it just for one card:
And he is a little "correction" for Glowspore Shaman pitching in graveyard Sorceries or instant we may wanna reshuffle in.

Honestly, Kriegel, Lich is too powerful of a filter card to cut. Really, only Glowspore Shaman is pitching cards and we want as many creatures in the graveyard as we can for our Ayara, First of Locthwain + Izoni, Thousand-Eyed bomb. Lich turns every card draw into a Glowspore Shaman and is on the curve right before we can cast Izoni. What that means is, for our turn 6 bomb, we can filter through 3-6 cards(if on turn 5 we sac something to Ayara or Priest). Again, not only is that 6 chances to find what you need, thats 4 cards being pitched that can potentially boost Izoni even further. With Cavalier of Thorns your pitching 4 sure, but you lose picking what 4 you pitch.
Cavalier of Thorns is also 3 green, which conflicts with Ayara, First of Locthwain . Unless your drawing a split land, there's no way to get them both off on curve. This means your ideal play line, now revolves around finding 1 of 7 lands, as well as the combo pieces. And we cut the best filtering card that would have made this easy anyways. Lich affords this deck too much consistency to drop it for something that doesnt even play nice on curve.
In the end losing life to save such a powerful filter card isnt that big of a deal. Ayara + Izoni combo nets us back such an absurd amount of life, losing 8, 12 even 16 isnt a big deal if the next turn we get it all back anyways. Plus they are wasting removal on the Lich, instead of Ayara or even Konrad
However, Command the Dreadhorde looks very interesting. 11 life, 8cmc to potentially win the game on a turn and can be grabbed by Mausoleum Secrets . I dont know how I missed this card to be honest, thank you.

Also, from my personal experience, Discovery / Dispersal is very good to fill in your graveyard OR filter, AND draws you a card on top of it. Similarly, the 'Explore' mechanics proved to be useful for my graveyard deck. Either fill in graveyard or put a land card into your hand. Both useful. Jadelight Ranger or Merfolk Branchwalker to name two.

Glowspore Shaman is good for selfmill and can grab a land.
Golgari Findbroker can help get an artifact, enchantment or land out of the graveyard.
Deadbridge Chant is nice in recursion decks but can be a bit too random for some people.

I'm not the best when it comes to deck building but I can see there's lots to improve.
What to cut: - Darkblade Agent - Completely pointless and does not help develop your deck's strategy neither is it a win con.
Golgari Raiders - Sure, Haste is nice. However, without evasion it's just gonna get blocked by a 1/1. Run either Boneyard Wurm or Splinterfright . The former has no other effects except for growing with your grave while the latter is still cheaper than the raiders, helps your strategy and has trample.
Enhanced Surveillance - Does nothing.

Whelp, I missed that 5-month deadline :-D
But I'll give Cystbearer and Wheel of Fate a hard look. And maybe Inferno Titan too (frankly not soooo much for the art, but because I love the card so much).
I'll give it a hard look for sure. Thanks!
I may need to add Glowspore Shaman ...

Glowspore Shaman seems an auto include. Deathsprout ramps but it wont be able to deal with things like planeswalkers and is a bit expensive. I would rather go for Cast Down and/or Vraska's Contempt or if you want to play something even better, that only your deck can run, go for Necrotic Wound its a 1 mana exile any key creature, especially in your deck. Lotleth Giant is cool dont get me wrong but its gonna do 7-10 damage most of the times , so you will need some more aggression in order to get the enemy into lethal range.
i love playing self-mill , check out my deck https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/sultai-agrocombo-selfmill/
