Wow, lots of tips Saljen. First of all: Thanks a lot for taking the time to leave some feedback! I think I’ve considered most of your mentions though and ended up not including them due to certain preferences. Lots of cards to respond to, so here goes:
- I used to run Hour of Promise and I like the card. However, I ended up cutting it when other land tutors were printed. I think it was Pir's Whim that has taken its place.
- Constant Mists I also used to run, but I found that I did not run enough cards that synergize with it. I would probably put it back if I ever change the list to be more graveyard-oriented (similar story for Sylvan Safekeeper), or if my meta starts playing more aggro. It is a card I really like though, so I would like to run it again.
- I’m aware of the Abundance Sylvan Library combo, but that situation will occur very rarely (especially as I run no ways to tutor for enchantments). So most of the time Abundance will see play on its own. And as a stand-alone card, I do not think it warrants a spot in the deck. Same story with Prismatic Omen, which only other synergy is it makes Dark Depths and Glacial Chasm tap for mana. These cards are great when they combo, but mediocre when they don’t imo. Gratuitous Violence only works when creatures deal damage, so I don’t see how that helps with valakut…
- Eternal Witness and Skullwinder are indeed great recursion cards! However, I run witness in so many decks already so I wanted to focus on lands in this list for my recursion cards for some variety. I prefer those recursion cards over witness and skullwinder.
- I never really read Realm Seekers well enough it seems :). Will reconsider that card!
- I’ve built this deck to make the lands shine! Magus of the Moon and Blood Moon turn the stars of my deck into mountains… I agree they are great cards for stalling opponents, but it goes against what I want to do with this deck. Also, I tend to steer away from cards that mess with my opponents' lands (already cut Jokulhaups for that reason). That’s also why I’m also not running Vorinclex.
- Yavimaya Hollow is useful, but not necessary in this list I think. I never really considered it for this deck however. So I will do that :)!
- I did not include Realms Uncharted in this list as I’m not focusing on graveyard synergy. But I never considered it in combination with Petrified Field, so maybe that will change things ^.^. However, I do really like the land tutors that are already in the deck.
- Wheel of Fortune is awesome. However, I only have one of them, and I put that one in a Daretti deck, where it is more valuable for the deck strategy. Here I can run other carddraw and not feel bad about it ;). I don’t think it makes a big enough difference here to warrant that price tag.
- T&N I am already considering in this deck, but haven’t decided on it yet :). Insurrection is nice, but does not have any synergy here with the strategy or themes (I do run it in another deck where I think it is more at home).
- I agree Decimate and Gleeful Sabotage are decent removal options, but I prefer the removal pieces I ended up selecting for this list.
- You did see I only run 5 mountains right? I don’t see how Boundless Realms is going to kill all opponents with Valakut unless I have valakut copied a bunch of times and if I have a bunch of other cards in play as well that I don’t run. I actually wrote quite extensively about why I do not run Boundless Realms in my description and I stand by those arguments.
Thanks a lot for dropping by. I will consider realms uncharted, petrified field, yavimaya hollow and realm seekers ;).

Hour of Promise can either grab the full Dark Depths combo, or it can grab Valakut + T-Stage, which gives you a lot of options. It can also pull out any other combination of helpful lands, like Glacial Chasm.
Constant Mists is a way to take advantage of your mass of lands, and can let you stay in the game far longer than you have any right to with this card.
Sylvan Library + Abundance is a pretty sweet little combo that lets you draw 3 cards per turn. Since Abundance "draw" triggers don't actually draw, but rather place the cards in your hand, as long as you trigger Abundance on all three Library triggers, you get to draw 3 cards. Both cards are obviously pretty good on their own too.
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is just a stupidly awesome power-house. Not only does he double your mana, but he shuts down your opponents plays for as long as he's in play.
Realm Seekers often comes down with 15+ +1/+1 counters and can single-handedly set up any land combo you want.
Magus of the Moon and Blood Moon are great for stalling out opponents. They have the side effect of turning off Valakut though. I run them in my R/G Borborygmos deck and they pay off more often than they mess you up.
Sylvan Safekeeper can help you keep your permanents safe while throwing lands in the yard for later use.
The main reason to run Boundless Realms is as a win-con once Valakut is in play. It can often give you enough bolts to take out all of your opponents.

I love your deck, love the thematic inclusions. I run a Muldrotha Lands deck, and some helpful glue card have been: Wayward Swordtooth. Exploration on a 5/5 body isn’t really terrible, especially at 3 mana. World Shaper has huge upside because it can fill your GY if they don’t choose to kill it, or put huge amounts of lands out should you chump block or sacrifice it. For example, after a Scapeshift, that’s incredibly powerful. Turntimber Sower. This card synergizes with Scapeshift, Titania, Gitrog, and can get you back key utility lands. Speaking of utility lands, Petrified Field, Command Beacon, Cephalid Coliseum, Bojuka Bog, and Halimar Depths are all lands worth considering, with your access to Harrow. I’d also consider Sylvan Scrying or Expedition Map to have even more. Last but not least, if you wanted to win the old fashioned way, Avenger of Zendikar teamed up with Craterhoof Behemoth usually does the trick. (No points for being original, though). Hope any of my suggestions have helped, keep up the great work!

You'll want to run all 4 relevant fetch lands, Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs, and Misty Rainforest. Every time you trigger a fetch land, you'll get a 5/3. Same goes for Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, and Blighted Woodland.
Here are some more lands that will trigger your commanders effect: Dust Bowl lets you have repeated land removal while synergizing with your commander. Lotus Vale and Scorched Ruins ramp up while sac'ing lands. Thespian's Stage + Dark Depths is a fun land combo, when both are in play and Stage is made a copy of DD both get sac'd and you end out with a 20/20 indestructible flier and two 5/3 tokens. Petrified Field lets you grab lands from your graveyard while triggering your commander.
I play a red/green deck that uses Titania and a lot of land effects, so this is coming from experience having played with Titania.

How much of a focus do you want on lands themselves? There's a lot of utility such as cycling lands, Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Maze of Ith / Thaumatic Compass Flip, Strip Mine (and variants), Arena, Glacial Chasm, Mirrorpool, or Petrified Field. My Gitrog deck uses 8+ ways to untap lands to reuse specific utility lands. Green creatures/planeswalkers and Deserted Temple.
The Mina and Denn deck I play has a heavier focus on creatures/landfall. In addition to the commander, Ghost Town can bounce itself, and lands such as the panoramas or Warped Landscape can provide a landfall on demand but still provide mana until you want that trigger.
Signets are still worth playing, even in a land deck. Some generic green value/ramp in the form of Tireless Tracker, Oracle of Mul Daya / Courser of Kruphix, Kodama's Reach, and a mana dork (or seven) is always good.
For ramp, I'd swap out: Budoka Gardener, Grazing Gladehart, Retreat to Hagra, Retreat to Kazandu, Far Wanderings
I'd rather have a complete boardwipe than a conditional one, most of the time. Massacre Wurm, Night Incarnate
The weakest landfall options are Rampaging Baloths and Zendikar's Roil.
The deck is bit top heavy, consider dropping some of the higher cost cards. Silklash Spider, Soul of Innistrad, Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, Whiptongue Hydra, Rise of the Dark Realms
I'd only play two of the Golgari Rot Farm cycle.

Nice deck! Brings me back to my early days of magic where everyone seemed to run mono green decks :D.
I browsed your list and here are some thoughts I had. Maybe there are some that are useful to you:
- Consider running Crop Rotation or Pir's Whim instead of Sylvan Scrying. Those cards have way more applications.
- You run Cultivate and Nissa’s Pilgrimage, but not Kodama's Reach? I guess I would play that over Lotus Cobra in this list as you don’t run that many ways to get more lands into play to make the Cobra shine.
- Also, Green Sun’s Zenith is synonymous with Dryad Arbor. Turning the Zenith into ramp for 1 mana. Easy include imo.
- I counted about 8 cards that draw you cards. I always prefer to run a bit more. You could consider Harmonize, Elemental Bond or Zendikar Resurgent
- With so many forests I expected to see Extraplanar Lens or something, but I could not find a card that would benefit from so many. This means you have a lot of room for improving your deck by including more utility lands. I’m thinking Scavenger Grounds, Strip Mine, Homeward Path, Tranquil Thicket, Blighted Woodland, Mosswort Bridge, Petrified Field etc. These can give you an additional edge if added in the right balance.
Hope there is something there that fits your vision for the deck!
