Growth Spiral Discussion

You should add Gauntlets of Light . It goes infinite with Faeburrow Elder as long as it taps for at least 4. At which point you can cast your entire deck using Golos, then win with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries . One idea is to run board wipes like Time Wipe and Realm-Cloaked Giant to clear the board after someone has committed to it. Jaya's Greeting , Murder , and Lava Coil can also help to remove annoying creatures early on. Flame Sweep is also a low cost mini wrath that can buy you time. I'd like to see more card draw, consider Growth Spiral , Opt , and Chemister's Insight . Finally my favorite card in my azorious control deck Teferi, Time Raveler , can help deal with control players and bounce troublesome creatures, artifacts, and enchantments while drawing you a card. The +1 is also good cause it gives your sorceries flash essentially.

Hello everyone. This is the first time posting here. I hope I did all this right sorry if I screwed this up. I'm looking to improve my Yarok deck. I know there are at least two cards on the tip of everyone's tung. Questing Beast and Hydroid Krasis . I would love to add thees but alas they are too pricey. The deck is as follows.
Commander) Yarok, the Desecrated
Creatures) Meteor Golem Dream Eater Gravedigger Evolution Sage District Guide Dungeon Geists Cavalier of Gales Murderous Rider Thief of Sanity Golgari Findbroker Agent of Treachery Cavalier of Thorns Paradise Druid Yarok's Fenlurker God-Eternal Rhonas Cavalier of Night Risen Reef Incubation Druid Voracious Hydra

Try working Stubborn Denial into the main or the side here. your nightpack ambusher will turn it on alone, brineborn cutthroat can also very quickly put ferocious online; all you need to have done is got one counter on it, then even if Denial puts the second counter on cutthroat, it will see ferocious as being active on resolution!
I agree with ChrisHansonBiomancin, simic charm should be on this list instead of unsummon. Bounding Krasis could be a better card than wildborn preserver as well, keeping your options even more open.
I personally would work in Growth Spiral as well.

Also, I think the before mentioned Growth Spiral would be really great at speeding this deck up. It allows a turn 2 Lotus Field following a turn 3 Thespian's Stage or Lotus Field with Tale's End . It may be worth looking into that further. Also, is Tale's End better than Disallow ? It both can be cast off of a Lotus Field but tales end is a super narrow counterspell outside of that interaction. Maybe you basically can never hold up 3 mana, but it was just a thought I had.

Hey, I was working on a Field of the Dead deck in Pioneer and found that Kiora, the Crashing Wave fit absolutely perfectly. You could try it in Pioneer if you wanted (here's my start: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/fog-of-the-dead/?cb=1574915555), or you could continue in Modern.
If you continued in Modern, the mana would be difficult and I actually think going three or four color could work given the constraints for Field of the Dead . White for Holy Day / Dawn Charm or black for Darkness / Abrupt Decay / Painful Truths are both good options. You could go up to crazy numbers of lands and play any of Arboreal Grazer , Explore , Courser of Kruphix , and Growth Spiral instead of your current creatures to ramp every turn so you can get the combo up and running by turn 5. Alternatively you could go for control instead of ramp with Thoughtseize , Abrupt Decay , Spell Pierce , Mana Leak , etc.

For the replacement of Once Upon a Time there are a few cards that come to mind but the ARE banned in STANDARD. Growth Spiral is the first one I thought of but it’s only a 1 card draw. If anyone knows any cards that would search library for a card, or scry+draw please comment below. Thanks!!

The problem with planeswalkers such as the ones you mentioned is that I can only use their abilities once on the combo turn, and the closest one to being playable would be Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner because of its low CMC.
Growth Spiral is an interesting two-drop. The main reason that I didn't include it is that I don't think I would have 4 lands by turn 3 unless I use a tutor effect on the previous turn. My two-drops are already overloaded with Wishclaw Talisman , Shimmer of Possibility , and Sylvan Scrying , so I would probably chop a couple of those off to make room for Growth Spiral .
Shreds of Sanity had me for a second there, but then I saw that the only instants I play are Opt and Tale's End . Recurring Opt isn't much, and recurring Tale's End does absolutely nothing. Instead, I have been testing Mission Briefing which is like Shreds but surveils and costs one less mana.
Underworld Connections might not be a bad idea, but the problem is that my primary untap spells untap two lands, and I'm comboing with two Lotus Field s. I don't know if I would enchant a Lotus Field just to draw a card and maybe have that small chance of drawing an untap spell, or enchant a random extra land to untap with Finale when that happens, and in that case I would only draw 1 extra card for 1 life and technically 1 mana which is what Finale does anyway. Although not a bad idea, but I don't really think it's necessary for what the combo needs.
Zacama, Primal Calamity is cute, but the problem is that Lotus Field taps for one color, and Zacama requires three. Although not impossible, I would rather produce blue mana first to use untap spells then I would be left with tapping two Fields for two different It would be nice to test out some extra turn spells in the deck. Although I can't use Karn's Temporal Sundering because it's a "legendary sorcery" and I have no legendary things in the deck, I would probably resort to Nexus of Fate due to its repeatable use. Thanks for the input!

Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner feels like it might have an alternative place in a list which runs some kind of creatures (likely Zacama, Primal Calamity ). Nissa, Vital Force , Kiora, Master of the Depths , Ral Zarek and Nissa, Who Shakes the World face similar headaches.
Some taking turns pieces are interesting - Karn's Temporal Sundering lets you answer a Deafening Silence then go off. Shreds of Sanity is interesting recursion. Growth Spiral is instant speed ramp, which is nice when you are holding up countermagic.
There is an alternative path where you look to animate the land then untap creatures you control, but I'm not sure there are enough To Arms! effects in pioneer to make the vulnerability to creature disruption worth it.
