Courser of Kruphix instead of Lifegift?

Also, Tectonic Reformation is useful too.

...and yes, bouncing all creatures puts your awakened lands back in your hand. Nice if you didn’t need them as lands though; discard with Windgrace.

MindAblaze,

I see your point about Liege of the Tangle. For example if someone plays a card with "return all creatures to hand", these land creatures would go to my hand (correct me if I'm wrong on that). I had paired Liege of the Tangle and Embodiment of Insight and since there are often board wipes in my groups meta I will probably eliminate these two cards.

As for Titania, Protector of Argoth, I have seen this card before and think it would do really well in this deck. This would be a great addition.

While the lands you suggested would pair really well with Titania, I'm not too keen on the pay one life part of the cost. There are a few decks in our meta that tick life totals quite a bit and this wouldn't help out with that. If I would add these lands it might be worth having Lifegift, I'm just not sure what to take out for them.

As for cards to take out, I know that Thantis, the Warweaver and Gyrus, walker of corpses don't do much for the landfall theme, so I was planning on taking them out. Also on this list were Bloodtracker, Worm Harvest and Soul of Innistrad.

I really just put in Etali, Primal Storm for the effect and the heavy hitting, I know he doesn't fit the landfall theme. He may be taken out for a different deck tho.

Thank you so much for the advice I really appreciate it!!

This mono green EDH deck is well out of date and I could use some help updating it to not only be legal but competitive

I feel like the base of the deck is still pretty strong and it only needs a few minor updates here and there, so any and all inputs would be greatly appreciate.

Asus, lost but seeking

MichaelAYoung91 I was thinking about Grim Feast for a while, but then I realized it doesn't work with stuff like Toxic Deluge .

Lifegift and Druidic Satchel seem like cute pet cards that could be useful. I only find somewhat of an issue with Satchel because I don't like to reveal too much information to my opponents and let them know what I have in hand.

The other things you mentioned feel a bit too conditional for me or they're too mana intensive. I have 32 lands and Glacial Chasm doesn't actually produce mana, so some things can be a little too high on my mana curve for my liking especially if they don't actively help with my strategy the turn they enter play.

My favorites are Lifegift and Druidic Satchel . Looking at your deck I'm unsure what would be the best option but the odds are in your favor to ramp or gain life with Druidic Satchel

Myriad Landscape and Thawing Glaciers would be good additions to your land base.

My other suggestion - looking at this list, it looks like a converted deck. I went Merfolk tribal with my build with this commander. I think a deck heavy with Landfall effects would be cool. Maybe go lifegain heavy with Lifegift, Primal Command, Aetherflux Reservoir.

Oh yeah, and Alhammarret's Archive basically mirrors this commander's triggered abilities. I think it's a must in pretty much any deck with with Tatyova.

I like the looks of your list a lot! I love that you ran across the card Terminal Moraine, I didn't even know that existed! Seems like it would work well with Titania, Protector of Argoth, she goes well with fetches too but at least Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds also count. Have you thought about Storm Cauldron? It's something I used to run and had a hard time cutting. I also see you're running Burgeoning, but you're also running Lotus Cobra. I used to run Burgeoning but decided Exploration was a better choice, since I usually don't need that many extra land drops and Exploration plays better with Lotus Cobra. Another card I used to run that does something similar to one of your cards was Lifegift (it actually got cut for Retreat to Kazandu). I thought I would recommend that as an alternative to Jaddi Offshoot since it's harder to kill and triggers more often (assuming you usually play 4-player games). I'm also going to recommend you don't consider using Scryb Ranger. This card is powerful when used to activate tap abilities multiple times a turn, such as Yisan, the Wanderer Bard (who is especially powerful as the commander of a deck). Here, it seems like you're just giving a creature vigilance, which seems really underwhelming. It's a cute surprise blocker but overall pretty ineffective. Right now I'm running World Breaker as a blocker for flying, since it doubles as removal and is also likely to kill whatever it blocks.

Overall, the deck looks like it's going a very fun and powerful direction! Hope you're having at least as much fun as I have with Mina and Denn :)
