I completely understand budget issues. Took me 20 years to build my collection. Take another look at my deck and pick 5 you think you could easily trade for.

Maybe Guardian of Tazeem or Roil Elemental could find a home in your list.

Tyrant-Thanatos on Chulane or Roon?

I play in a semi-competitive playgroup, far from cEDH but definitely on the upper end of "casual" powerlevel. I run a Chulane value engine deck that would probably draw hate in lower power groups, but he's pretty par for our group, and the deck does pretty well imo. I run a lot of ETB, additional creature cast/etb draw effects like Soul of the Harvest and Beast Whisperer , landfall effects like Admonition Angel , Roil Elemental , Tatyova, Benthic Druid , and have a secondary wincon via Approach of the Second Sun .

Imo Chulane and Roon run different builds though, even as value engines. I think both can be used to great effect, they just have different ways of going about it.

Starsky2814 that's exactly how I use him, blinking him with Conjurer's Closet and other blinking effects. Plus with Fertilid you can do some real annoying landfall effects from things like Roil Elemental (which you have). I liked your mana fixing because my biggest issue is getting red mana to get Omnath on the board.

I really like this deck start. I would add more Wood Elves type cards and have less instants/sorceries. Ex: Springbloom Druid , Farhaven Elf , Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip.

You're talismans are good ramp but are strictly worse than basic signets. I would replace them. In a deck with hefty lifegain they might be better - but i can forsee taking a ton of damage from then.

Terastodon and Venser, Shaper Savant should be mainboarded.

The The Immortal Sun , Guardian Project , Mystic Confluence , Ulvenwald Hydra , Seedborn Muse , Rune-Scarred Demon Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Hornet Queen , Courser of Kruphix , Oracle of Mul Daya ...and anything with Landfall are my least favorite cards for the deck. I think Landfall is an entirely different style this commander can be played with - as in I think it would need support from the entire deck and need to abuse Landfall with more cards. Right now I think the deck has a bigger Control theme. Cards like Roil Elemental or Sire of Stagnation need to be protected - and need an entire support system of counters and Explore and Harrow and Scapeshift and Splendid Reclamation and Crucible of Worlds etc etc.

I think you would benefit more from cards like Equilibrium Treachery Strionic Resonator Lightning Greaves Diluvian Primordial Duplicant Prime Speaker Zegana

Also you can probably go down to 32 lands.

She’s next in line for sure, my local comic shop is sold out currently and I have a lot of credit so I’m waiting on her, Kamahl, Fist of Krosa will be my test for the animate land style. I also love Roil Elemental with him so I can start stealing lands

Conjurer's Closet would work super well here! I'd actually cut Roil Elemental if only because triple blue in a three color deck might be dicey.

Also, can you switch the deck to EDH? You have it set to standard, so a lot of suggestions can't get through.
