Overgrown Tomb Discussion

Oh, and I personally like Utopia Sprawl more than Unbridled Growth simply because it can help you ramp to Vraska faster.. You'd just have to do some mana fixing by bringing in 2x Overgrown Tomb in the place of a 2x Bloodstained Mire to have more forest names in your mana base.
This is just my personal opinion though. :-)

MajorDrGhastly: With all this ramp I was just a little heavy on lands and needed to go down to 33. It's important that I hit all 5 colours, so I didn't want to take out anything that produced coloured mana. Temple of the False God always runs the risk of showing up off an early-game draw and slowing you down, so I cut it and kept the very similar Shrine of the Forsaken Gods which will always at least produce . Seems safer.

Ol_manIt lacks a Swamp because I don't play any. Green is the only color that needs basic lands because it is the most important and prevalent color in the deck. Fetchlands and Overgrown Tomb should be plenty for black mana.

Caved a little and bought a little more into the mana base. After a small amount of play testing and sample draws, access to the necessary mana was consistently a problem.

Ok. Looks like you are on a budget, so I will break down suggestions based on price. I like what you have so far, and the number one place you could work on is in the lands, I think. I recommend dropping Vivid Grove and Vivid Marsh. They are much too slow and in 2 colors i think that the fixing isnt really that important. I also recommend dropping Terramorphic Expanse, Evolving Wilds, Golgari Guildgate, Jungle Hollow. Like I said before, these are maybe too slow. Id almost play basics over most of these. Imagine having the best hand ever. Turn 4 win. But two tap lands. Thatd ruin the experience. Try something like Woodland Cemetery, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Command Tower, Exotic Orchard, Overgrown Tomb, Llanowar Wastes, Twilight Mire, and Tendo Ice Bridge could even be options for you. Most of these are not that high priced right now, with exception to Twilight Mire and Overgrown Tomb, and could easily be fit into your budget. My earliest mistake was thinking that my mana base could be upgraded later and I just wanted sweet new cards.
Now I think Ill make a few general suggestions as far as a cutlist goes:
I think Flash Foliage, while being a mainline on flavor, is a not great card with limited use. You need to have a creature attacking you to even cast it, so I feel it will be dead almost 98 percent of the time. Maybe something like Harmonize, to get that extra card advantage, could be something to replace it with.
Sprout has the same fantastic flavor that I think you're looking for, but it falls short in a couple ways. It's important to remember that sacrifices will need to be made in the flavor department in order to tune you deck to a more competitive state. While I would cut this one myself, I can see it if you had wanted to keep it. I think if it was up to me, I'd look at something like Awakening Zone or Ophiomancer. Not on your flavor, but cheap and efficient token generators that can generate lots of value. And value wins games. Shoutout to non budget Bitterblossom, one of the best cards in this category ever printed. Highly recommended.
A few cards are awesome, but I feel there could be a few upgrades made. Id cut Shapers' Sanctuary, Morbid Bloom, Verdeloth the Ancient, Wretched Confluence, Viridian Emissary, maybe Eldrazi Monument,and terastadon. I'd be looking at options like Fecundity, Parallel Lives, Night's Whisper, Protean Hulk, Beast Within, Pernicious Deed, I personally love Imp's Mischief, Crop Rotation, Fellwar Stone, Thran Dynamo is a card, Ashnod's Altar should def be here. I could keep going, but I built that deck already, lol.
Other suggestions are Mana Vault, Chrome Mox, and Dark Ritual if you are feeling cheeky. Just for some more fast mana. Less budget, but very good. I alsrecommend adding the Rings of Brighthearth+Basalt Monolith infinite mana combo, as it generates infinite tokens with ol' mushroom mouth.
I hope you find this helpful and I'm sorry if I came off too strong there. Love the deck though, that flavor is on point. +1 my friend. I hope you have fun with it when ol' boy is released. Look at my deck here for more ideas.

are you only able to cast k command, and the 9 other black cards in the sideboard, with manamorphose and bbe? why not one Overgrown Tomb? all your fetches can get it
What is Rain of Blades for?
Have you considered Rally the Peasants?

Crop Rotation, Hour of Promise, Scapeshift, Sylvan Scrying, Expedition Map, and Ulvenwald Hydra will search for any land. I wouldn't use Tempt with Discovery because someone will just get a Strip Mine, and Realms Uncharted will see your Arena in the grave.
Will you please check out my fight deck?

no need for giving up black mana with a Forest for Bloodbond March when Woodland Cemetery and Overgrown Tomb exist. That's plenty green spread for one green mana needed, for a recurring effect. That should be a 3 or 4 of though should it go in.
Other fun things you could diversify to. Diversity is fun when you're tutoring the demon you want anyway.
