Well you do have Crucible of Worlds and Ramunap Excavator so yeah I don't see it being a bad choice

If you're running ways to tutor nonbasic lands then you should have a "toolbox" land package instead of just 4x of two useful lands. You definitely need a copy of Scavenger Grounds at least. Some other considerations are Dunes of the Dead, Hostile Desert, Memorial to Unity and Memorial to Genius.
You should also probably run a split of Wayward Swordtooth and Ramunap Excavator, instead of just 4x swordtooth. They combo well together, and the swordtooth doesn't really do anything after you've played out all your lands from hand / don't have ascend yet.

Another enchantress creature previewed today too, which is pretty cool for all of us with enchantress decks. Not the splashiest of cards but still great to have another effect like that for EDH. And now maybe I'll be able to acquire a Scapeshift for my Mazirek deck which is great also. The crucible reprint is interesting, as I don't think there have ever been so many different ways to recur lands from the graveyard to play in standard before. Crucible of Worlds, Ramunap Excavator, World Shaper, Muldrotha, the Gravetide, and The Mending of Dominaria ...seems like maybe there is going to be a reason for it all in an upcoming set. It has me wondering: why the recent focus on land recursion? Splendid Reclamation was a fairly unique effect when it was first made, now it's like there's one in every set. Is land destruction coming back bigtime? Fetch lands? Random coincidence? Are they there just to get more value from Scapeshift and the Amonkhet cycling lands? Maybe some Ravnica block mechanic like Dredge is coming soon? (...but not actually dredge they said that's never returning).
What do you all think??

Something similar could be done with Boundless Realms, without the need to involve the graveyard--though Scapeshift's is a tad more mana-geable (hooray for bad puns?), and Scapeshift is not limited to Basics.
This would be one of those explosive plays I would get a kick out of seeing done, but I'm not sure where this would fit in. Vintage, Legacy, and Modern are all far too fast for this kind of play. Graveyard hate is also a common sideboard staple of these formats, given the prevalence of Dredge.
In Commander, you have a lot more lands to remove from your deck, meaning you need more setup, and usually will have more opponents thankful for your creatures all being tapped down.
In addition to graveyard hate, Ramunap Excavator dies to all kinds of removal, and artifact hate is pretty common as well. This will be particularly troubling in Commander, where you do not have redundant copies of the cards.
All that said, this is the kind of casual deck I love to see--something fun and unusual, that helps you win in a roundabout way. I'd be curious to see a decklist if you, or someone else, posts one.

Rampaging Baloths for more blockers/attackers
Dictate of the Twin Gods because it'll allow you to need less mana to kill opponents.
Dualcaster Mage, Reverberate, Reiterate, Increasing Vengeance, and Howl of the Horde will let you kill more opponents/threats with a single burn spell. Wort, the Raidmother would be a good addition too.
More draw never hurt anyone; Elemental Bond syncs nicely with your token makers and commander; Reforge the Soul, Winds of Change, Cathartic Reunion, Tormenting Voice, and Wild Guess let you pitch what is not relevant at the time for hopefully something that is. With Ramunap Excavator pitching lands should not be a big deal to get back.

Let me make this clear:
1) I’m a budget player (anything over $5, I either hope I’ve opened, proxie, or it. Doesn’t. Exist.)
2) This is for fun, I don’t care if it’s competitive. I mean I want to win, but I’m trying to keep or make friends, not loose them
Now that that’s out of the way, I’m normally a creature-based player, and on top of that, I refrain as much as possible from playing Black. Honestly, I don’t like how black is all about throwing you cards to the wind (or, more accurately, exile). I’m very protective of any of the cards I play or own, but I want to change that. At least a little.
My plan is a deck that draws, counters, ramps, fills the graveyard, then uses it. To fill the graveyard, I’m referring to cards such a Contingency Plan which move cards to the graveyard but give you ones you want. I would used Body Double creatures to make some use of my graveyard, but then (with ramp) play Muldrotha and use my graveyard to my advantage. I plan on running mana rocks (i.e. Sol Ring, Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo etc.) to play other spells. I wan to be a blue player, so counter spells are my friend. I won’t play snap caster, he costs too much $$$. However, Cancel, Dispel, etc should work. Ramp is simple, poop lands into the graveyard to play later: Life from the Loam(proxy), Crop Rotation, Harrow, etc. I plan on a Sukura-Tribe Elder leafing the fray as well. I have a Ramunap Excavator and Splendid Reclamation, so those are in. I am looking for some cool board-wipes (cyclonic rift).
That’s my thoughts anyway. I have plenty of other cards I can use, but I want to get your opinions and suggestions, since this isn’t my normal style. My budget is “I want to buy it if it’s under $5, and I’ll proxy up to 10 cards that are over that.” (P.S. I never use Shocks, I’ll make the land-base, but feel free to suggest beyond the normal Command tower, evolving wilds/terramorphic expanse kinda things)
Thanks guys and Happy Hunting!
