Scapeshift for Ob Nixilis, the Fallen. Of that doesn't get you the win lol.

Awesome deck. Wish I could afford some of those lands you got. Anyway, I play another variant and have won many games with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen. Any particular reason you don't run him?

Honestly have a couple of choices, Exquisite Blood is good but if you don't have Sanguine Bond for the infinite combo it's an expensive enchantment that can get you targeted because others may think you have SB in as well.

Planar Void is cheap and can be useful against some decks, but honestly hurts you as well, would suggest sideboarding it personally, then throw it in for zombie/delver type decks.

Creature wise I'd say take out either Ob Nixilis, the Fallen or Olivia Voldaren not that they arent good or useful in there own ways, but they don't seem to fit the theme of what you're trying to do with the deck(at least to me).

Needs some land fixing / TLC.

Hello there! As a longtime Jund lands player (even before our Lord and Savior Windgrace arrived) I know exactly how you feel when you say that the deck needs a bit more "punch". Lord Windgrace is a great value engine, but he often lacks that explosive play that just outright finishes games. Here are a few cards that I run in my deck that help make it more explosive for your consideration:

Scapeshift would be an excellent win-con to add to the deck because it is so versatile (plus it is relatively 'cheap' right now since it is in Standard). Pair it with either Retreat to Hagra or Ob Nixilis, the Fallen to remove players from the game. It makes a massive army with Titania, Protector of Argoth or Omnath, Locus of Rage . Basically if you are running landfall or land sac-recursion it does everything you want in one big explosive play.

I am also a huge fan of Need for Speed . Pair it with Titania and you now have a hasty army-in-a-can.

Nissa, Vital Force . It took me a while to come around to her but oh my does she do work in a lands matter deck.

Field of the Dead has been a solid inclusion for me since M20 dropped. The incidental value (and protection) it provides is amazing. Ghost Town also is another strong option.

I agree that Crucible of Worlds is a solid inclusion.

As a comment on your land number question, I found that 41 is the perfect number. I am hesitant to agree with earlier comment to cut lands below 40 (40 lands is fine though). Lord Windgrace and Tatyova, Benthic Druid are very different decks. Tatyova can get away with fewer lands because she draws cards off each land drop. She gets the best of both worlds where Lord Windgrace has to choose between drawing cards or advancing the board state. Besides, you can treat utility lands like Field of the Dead or Nurturing Peatland as actual cards with Lord Windgrace since they have great synergy with his abilities. That's just my opinion though.

If you need anymore ideas, feel free to check out my list: This deck has HUGE tracks of land. It should be up to date.

Good luck and happy deck building!

I personally recommend a variation of this abusing tutors and an Abzan variant. The Gitrog Monster , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Ramunap Excavator , and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen can be one-ofs that you can use Eladamri's Call and Finale of Devastation to fetch out.

For a wincon you could aim for full power in the Animate Dead Worldgorger Dragon combo (you animate the dragon, it exiles all of your permanents, the animate dead causes you to sac the dragon, loop until you end it with any different creature to animate. result is being able to tap lands for mana each loop and getting all the etb triggers. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is also an interesting landfall creature that can win when comboing. with ob and Life from the Loam I 2nd in suggesting, life alone can help you with your running out of gas issue as if you have 3 cycle lands you can turn life into quite the draw spell you can recur.

shadow63 finale isn't an auto win spell with avenger since the buff always happens before you can resolve the making plant army, if the buff happened at the beginning of your next combat then it'd work.
