Krosan Restorer Discussion

would work fine if you have lands that generate more than 1 mana. That wasn’t included in the initial question so I didn’t address it. And I was incorrect about
Selvala, Heart of the Wilds
being usable since Lili can only get non-legendary creatures.
A Crypt of Agadeem would work nicely in the event you wanted to get this combo going, assuming you have enough creatures in your graveyard.
And if we’re saying Gaea's Cradle is an affordable option, then a much easier infinite combo for Muldrotha would be to use Lion's Eye Diamond , Animate Dead / Necromancy , and Phantasmal Image .
A budget combo could be Palinchron + Phantasmal Image + Animate Dead + Dance of the Dead + a sac outlet

Let's see if I've got your initial plan right.
Assuming Thousand-Year Elixir is on the battlefield, allowing you to activate creature abilities the turn they ETB.
Activate Selvala, Heart of the Wilds for some number of mana equal to the greatest power you have on the board (if with Muldrotha, that'd be 6). Or use Krosan Restorer to untap 1 or 3 lands (depending on if you have threshold), where at least one of those lands taps for more than 1 mana.
Activate Liliana, Defiant Necromancer 's -X ability, targeting your newly-dead mana creature. Here's the first hangup. The -X ability says "nonlegendary creature card," and Selvala is legendary, so she can't work in this interaction. So it has to be Restorer. This activation puts Liliana in the graveyard due to lack of loyalty.
Cast Animate Dead or Necromancy on a clone creature and have it copy Muldrotha, the Gravetide , forcing you to sacrifice one due to the legend rule. You keep the clone and send the original Muldrotha to the graveyard.
Using Muldrotha, the Gravetide 's ability, you cast Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip from the graveyard. Then you cast a second Animate Dead or Necromancy (because the first is still enchanting your Muldrotha clone), getting the original Muldrotha back from the graveyard, triggering the legend rule again, which flips Liliana again. You keep the original Muldrotha to "reset" the "one permanent of each type" restriction.
You -X Liliana to get Restorer back, putting Liliana back in the graveyard. Go to step 4, alternating Muldrotha and clone as necessary.
Am I reading this right?
In order for this to work, you can't use Selvala, Heart of the Wilds because it's legendary and Liliana, Defiant Necromancer specifically targets nonlegendary creature cards. For Krosan Restorer to be a good fit, you'll probably want to be at threshold (to hit three lands instead of one), and you'll want those lands to produce lots of mana, like the Gaea's Cradle and Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun you mentioned later, with enough creatures to make it functional.
With so many moving parts, it runs the risk of being extremely easy to disrupt if your opponents have answers, but as far as I can see it functions aside from Selvala being a bad fit, assuming your lands are producing enough mana (and it should be mentioned that the aforementioned choice lands only produce green mana; you're going to need lots of black as well because Liliana and Animate/Necromancy is going to be alone, with a fourth if you have to cast both enchantments before you can get mana on the loop again.

Missed the threshold part of Krosan Restorer . Assuming it’s active throughout, your generate an initial , and repeating everything I said about, you’d have to pay a total of ( Animate Dead , Necromancy , Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip), resulting in still a deficit of mana.

I'm trying to create infinite mana with Muldrotha, the Gravetide + Ashnod's Altar + Thousand-Year Elixir / Lightning Greaves + Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip + Selvala, Heart of the Wilds / Krosan Restorer ( + Animate Dead / Necromancy and Clever Impersonator / Phyrexian Metamorph / Evil Twin in the graveyard)
How it works: Activate Selvala/Restorer's mana ability with the help of Greaves/Elixir, activate Altar targeting Selvala/Restorer (which causes Liliana to flip), activate Liliana targeting Selvala/Restorer, cast Animate/Necromancy targeting Impersonator/Metamorph (targeting Muldrotha, then keep the cloned Muldrotha), cast Liliana with Muldrotha, cast Animate/Necromancy with Muldrotha (targeting Muldrotha, keeping the real Muldrotha), repeat.
Does this work?

Eladamri, Lord of Leaves can be held in the hand until the moment someone tries to kill your elves, then dropped at instant speed to counter the spell/ability. Note that this shuts off Wirewood Lodge so Temur Sabertooth can be necessary to get him back off the field. Heroic Intervention provides a similar effect for the same cost, but only once (unless you have ewit shenanigans ready).
Elvish Harbinger is one of the best tutors going for elfball decks.
Ezuri, Renegade Leader is another infinite mana outlet that wins games.
Joraga Warcaller can be played early as a minor lord to keep your weenies alives, then bounced and re-played later when you have a surplus of mana.
Loaming Shaman is great grave-hate that can also double up as recursion if you've got the draw engine started.
Nullmage Shepherd will make artifact / enchantment based decks scoop on the spot.
Patron of the Orochi untaps itself every turn along with every other creature you control (but also every green creature and forest at the table).
Realm Seekers often comes down as a huge beater, and tutors up any land at instant speed.
Skyshroud Poacher will win you the game unless it is immediately removed. Best elf tutor ever printed.

I'm currently making an Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle deck myself and i'm running a lot of untap cards ( Argothian Elder , Krosan Restorer , Pemmin's Aura , Freed from the Real and Counter removal cards ( Power Conduit , Clockspinning , and Chisei, Heart of Oceans .
Shimmering Wings can be cast as many times as you have 2 blue mana and has the added benefit of giving your creature flying.

Speaking of her first ability, you may want some sacrifice outlets in order to get rid of Nikya once you draw a win condition like Primal Surge or Tooth and Nail. Bloodshot Cyclops is one hilarious way to do it, and there's also good old High Market
You really aren't running that many centaurs or druids, so losing tempo by having Path of Ancestry come in tapped isn't that worth it. A good replacement might be Ancient Ziggurat because you don't care about noncreature spells that much
