Risen Reef

Creature — Elemental

Whenever Risen Reef or another Elemental enters the battlefield under your control, look at the top card of your library. If it's a land card, you may put it onto the battlefield tapped. If you don't put the card onto the battlefield, put it into your hand.

What about stuff like; Risen Reef or Omnath, Locus of Rage?

Maybe use Risen Reef and a decent number of elementals to continue the chain? If any combo pieces are elementals, Reef can be the glue that holds them all together.

Tempt with Vengeance would be great with Risen Reef and Purphoros, God of the Forge. I'm tempted to try Carpet of Flowers after seeing it in action against me in a previous game.

Parcelbeast is a powerhouse. The idea is to mutate it on Scute Swarm. You have bigger bodies than 1/1s and in addition they trigger your Risen Reef and can tap for similar effects to fish for additional landfall triggers. It is insane.

I'd recommend a Deadeye Navigator in this. he pairs very well with the koolaid man, and acts as a legit source of draw power, as well as resetting Omnaths landfall triggers so you can get them again.

I also recommend a few bounce lands like Gruul Turf. Early on, they act as additional land drops because they tap for two and bounce a land to your hand, and later on, you can play them, and bounce themselves back to your hand for multiplay landfall triggers, even if you're out of lands to play otherwise. Adding in Sakura-Tribe Scout, combined with a bounce land and Retreat to Coralhelm gets you infinite landfall triggers, if you don't mind having a hard to assemble, 4 piece infinite combo (fourth piece being something that gives landfall).

For other draw cards, I recommend Parcelbeast, Risen Reef, and Omnath, Locus of the Roil. Parcelbeast is only once per turn, but it does draw you cards, and sometimes ramps too. and you can mutate it onto something else for pseudo haste (or onto a Scute Swarm for VERY silly plays). Risen Reef is a fun combo that isn't infinite, when paired with Omnath, Locus of Rage or Zendikar's Roil, where playing a land creates an elemental token, which makes it look at the top of your deck, and if that card is a land, you play it, get another elemental, and it goes off again. And Omnath of the Roil is just good in general for this decks theme, giving you card draw if you have enough land. Tireless Tracker and Nissa, Vital Force are also great ways to draw cards from your deck. if you put in Spark Double as well, you can copy Nissa with it, instantly use the -6 for card draw, and then use the original nissa for recursion.

I'd also replace Skyclave Geopede with Brushfire Elemental. Similar effect, cheaper mana, slightly lesser power, but has haste and a type of evasion. Also an elemental if you add Risen Reef

For a fun way to close out a game, Akroma's Memorial puts in some good work when you pump out a bunch of tokens, giving them haste, trample, flying, and some relevant color protections. Moraug, Fury of Akoum also lets you overwhelm everyone with all those tokens and a couple lands. and finally, Finale of Devastation also works to close out games. If you pay 10GG on it (12 mana total), you can drop pretty much any creature in your deck onto the field, and then give all your creatures +10/+10 and haste.

At first glance here are some recommendations I have that would fit right in: Avenger of Zendikar, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Dockside Extortionist, Parcelbeast, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Risen Reef, Tireless Tracker, Sakashima the Impostor, Spark Double, Wayward Swordtooth, Burgeoning, Sylvan Library, Valakut Exploration, Finale of Devastation, Finale of Revelation, Farseek, Nature's Lore, Amulet of Vigor, Ketria Triome, Raugrin Triome, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds a few bounce lands such as Gruul Turf, Selesnya Sanctuary, Simic Growth Chamber. I also would agree with DemMeowsephs and multimedia. Fetch lands and shock lands are crucial to have in this build, as well as having the tutors that have been recommended.

I feel like you are very light on draw, so a lot of my recommendations point to that. Mutate Parcelbeast on Scute Swarm with Risen Reef in play = insane draw. Play more land cards are always great to have in landfall decks. I didn’t suggest this, but you could add a sub theme of flicker effects to abuse Omnath, Locus of Creation landfall triggers. Clone cards that can copy Omnath and ignore legendary rule to use as a triggered ability doubler can have overwhelming results.

If I can provide anymore assistance, feel free to let me know. Good luck with your brew!

Thanks for the extensive comment! Yeah, the Sylvan Library is a card that I had in another deck, but didn't really need it there, so I'll try it out with Omnath :) I do have Simic Ascendancy but it's in my Pir/Toothy deck where it works a little better than in here, I think. Risen Reef looks awesome. Definitely going to pick that one up. It's just too bad the fetchlands are so expensive. Stupid Modern format ;) Anyway, thanks again!
