Greenwood Sentinel is a cheap elf with vigilance!
Reclamation Sage IS CRUCIAL to get rid of pesky enchantments!
Steel Leaf Champion is an amazing early game bruiser
Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar is an amazing mono-green card that keeps coming back for more late game

Hey, this is a good start, but consider more cards that interact with lands? When your Commander is seven mana, ramp is pretty important. With Omnath you don't really need lots of other big creatures because he's the big creature who's conveniently in the Command Zone and he creates other big creatures with lands. Instead of lots of other big creatures play cards that help you get Omnath onto the battlefield faster, draw cards, get lands, interact with lands or are good when he's in play. All my suggestions to consider are $2 or less.
Cards to consider adding:
- Perilous Forays: can be a repeatable landfall/3 damage to opponents engine with Omnath. Sac an Elemental to do 3 damage to opponent, then put a Basic land onto the battlefield and create another Elemental. Forays is amazing draw with Horn of Greed and Elemental Bond with Omnath.
- Horn of Greed: good draw when you're putting a lot more lands onto the battlefield per turn than your opponents.
- Elemental Bond: draw when Elementals are created or whenever another 3+ power creature ETB.
- Nissa, Vital Force: If you have her, move her from the sideboard to the main deck.
- Kodama's Reach
- Nissa's Pilgrimage
- Skyshroud Claim: can tutor for and put into play two of Sheltered Thicket or Forests.
- Sakura-Tribe Elder
- Wood Elves: can tutor for and put into play Sheltered Thicket or Forest.
- Skyshroud Ranger: put a land in your hand onto the battlefield.
- Walking Atlas
- Llanowar Scout
- Dryad Greenseeker
- Rampaging Baloths
- Greenwarden of Murasa
- Beast Within
- Chaos Warp
- Comet Storm
Consider more lands:
Cards to consider cutting:
- Archetype of Endurance
- Kamahl, Pit Fighter
- Maze Rusher
- Pelakka Wurm
- Wort, the Raidmother
- Savageborn Hydra

- Apocalypse Hydra

- Zendikar Incarnate
- Zurgo Bellstriker
- Zhur-Taa Ancient
- Leafcrown Dryad
- Lightning Bolt
- Slice in Twain
- Lurking Predators
- Zendikar Resurgent
- Grow from the Ashes

Good luck with your deck.

Llanowar Scout/Skyshroud Ranger is an easy drop for it. Sylvan Scrying, Canopy Cover, Privileged Position, and some others could be dropped. Fetchlands to increase consistency, and Silence/Autumn's Veil as interaction and this deck is great, but as is there isn't a ton of difference.

The Life and Limb + Sporemound combo? Otherwise, you have to look into bouncing lands to your hand to re-play them, with cards like Walking Atlas and Llanowar Scout. I just recently put together a Tatyova, Benthic Druid deck that bounces lands and replays them for multiple reasons, and I run several effects like that.
What deck are you playing this focus in?

Really like the deck, just a few thoughts.
I would go more into the landfall theme. Lifegain doesn't win games, but card draw and mana ramp does.
Cards like Rampaging Baloths, Retreat to Coralhelm, and Trade Routes could all be great additions. If you add retreat, I would recommend putting in creatures that tap to put a land in play, like Walking Atlas, Sakura-Tribe Scout, and Llanowar Scout. With retreat and Simic Growth Chamber, this generates infinite draw, which is a good reason to add Laboratory Maniac.
Hope this helps!

Alright! Meloku the Clouded Mirror is a expensive card for sure. But I kinda like it. Trade Routes is better. But I am going to stick with the 1/1 illusion maker. Its been good to have that token generation is some situations.
Hedron Crab, no, I don't think it is useful.
Training Grounds. YES! YES! YES! play it it is that good!
Life from the Loam. This is probably a player preferens. I did play it, but I never dreaded it. My build isen't that grave focused. And I never really felt that I needed it. Or could utilize it that well. But you can make the build a lot different and suddenly make great use of the card.
Aggressive Mining. I have never tested it. But you could defiantly play it. We can put lands in play with this in play anyways. With this Life from the Loam gets better. If you wanna go that route go for it. I think it will work.
I guess I should say that my playgroup has a lot of grave hate. So that is kinda way I don't play these cards.
Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is really good. he cad draw 3 cards a turn vs three opponents. But other then that he is color identity red and a good fighter.

Sylvan Awakening is one of my favorite cards in Magic, so I can appreciate you trying to make it work! I like Tatyova, Benthic Druid in my Awakening decks, especially in conjunction with Grow from the Ashes and Circuitous Route; the card draw and life gain are just so nice.
Maybe consider Dryad Greenseeker in place of Llanowar Scout. A 1/1 for 2 mana that does nothing if you have no lands in hand - and worse, empties your hand with no real way to replenish - isn't a great card, in my opinion.
Keep up the fight, though! I know there's a Sylvan Awakening deck that can compete out there.

I just began playing EDH a couple of months ago and my first deck was a Child of Alara land deck that used Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle as the primary win condition. Recently I have wanted to change the commander and possibly shave off a color or two in the process! While researching more land based commanders I stumbled upon your temur build and it grabbed my interest. Due to this I have lots of questions :)
Why are you running Meloku the Clouded Mirror instead of Trade Routes? It has a much lower CMC, dodges prevalent creature removal, and has a second ability that could be relevant in certain situations. Also Llanowar Scout is literally just a better Budoka Gardener. They have the same ability although his body is better and he wont forcefully change into a different creature. His body is also better than Walking Atlas but because the atlas is colorless it is still great and definitely deserves a spot.
One interesting card I stumbled upon is Hedron Crab as he helps fill your graveyard. Do you think it could be a useful card?
Would you ever use the card Clear the Land? It is a way to put land onto the battlefield, but it presents a risk as it could exile any number of cards. The card would be hilarious if someone tutored before your turn and was forced to exile what they wanted.
Is Return to the Earth worth the extra cost when compared to something like Naturalize? I understand that it kills Aven Mindcensor and the cost is less important when you have lots of lands, but it still seems very heavy.
I really like the card Excavation and have seen a card that is kind of similar but also quite different called Aggressive Mining. Maybe it could be used before the 'big turn' to try and find more fuel for a Manabond or something else? Plus the sacrificed lands could be easily recurred and used later. I'm curious to see if you would you ever use this, why or why not?
Would you ever consider shifting the deck to Lord Windgrace or do you thing that would make the deck less reliable? By gaining black you would have access to more tutors, but you already have land tutors and that is about all you need... But by losing blue you would eliminate lots of sources of card draw and stax effects. So I guess answered my own question lol, but still want to hear your opinion.
Alright! I think that is all of the questions I have at the moment. Thank you for sharing this deck! This may be the way I want to change my Child of Alara deck and your answers will help me fully decide this.
