king-saproling - Ah, a well-knowledged player!
When I reworked this deck, my goal was to make it rely less on the commander and thusly removed pieces such as Knight of New Alara and Lovisa Coldeyes, but there are some here I really like. I really only cast him with Evolutionary Leap, Purphoros, God of the Forge, or Gaea's Cradle.
I am not too fond of cards that merely ramp lands with X in the cost, especially if it may get not value. Animist's Awakening, though can be impressive, there is better I can do with my mana.
Lotus Cobra is one I own but isn't in here. It probably should be.
Stone-Seeder Hierophant is one I have never heard of, one of my avocations being perusing older sets for unseen gems. Though it can be powerful and is findable with Imperial Recruiter, it's ramp with summoning sickness on turn four, having but one toughness. Lotus Cobra seems more idoneous.
Avenger of Zendikar is quite literally perfect for this strategy. The only reasons I do not run it is because I do not enjoy having multiple of the same finisher across my decks and it's arguably a strictly better version of my commander. I couldn't do that to Hazezon. xD
Impact Tremors is more difficult to tutor version than Purphoros, whilst being far less impactful on its own.
This deck already has quite a few tutors, and it doesn't actually make that many tokens afore turn five. The value in Enlightened Tutor and Imperial Recruiter is that they can find setup pieces early due to the low cost and have value later. Oracle of Mul Daya early, Ulvenwald Hydra later. I am not too fond of the high cost of Chord of Calling here, also because the deck has a fair amount of tutoring as is.
I have also tested with Safe Haven, though it was just far too slow.
Divine Visitation can get out of hand very quickly, but I have it as a finisher in tokens. Best not to end the games the same way as other strategies, in my eyes at least.
I used to love Shields of Velis Vel. Oh, the blowouts it bestowed. I cut it when I made the deck less reliant on the commander, but I would love to use it again.
Walukut would be fun to include, though the lands slot is rather tight, and I refuse to remove Hammerheim. (It's never done anything. Not yet, anyway.)
Thank you for the comment. You obviously know the game well, and I'll have to look at some of your decks. :)

Cool deck! Thoughts on these? Genesis Wave, Animist's Awakening, Lotus Cobra, Stone-Seeder Hierophant, Avenger of Zendikar, Emeria Angel, Impact Tremors, Nature's Revolt, Chord of Calling, Green Sun's Zenith, Tempt with Discovery, Reap and Sow, Creeping Renaissance, Safe Haven, Divine Visitation (gets around Hazezon's downside), Shields of Velis Vel (this one is fun with Hazezon. If somebody plays removal on him, target an opp with Shields of Velis vel and Hazezon will exile all their creatures as he leaves).

Hey awsome deck i have been heavily playtesting my zirilan deck as well ( Dragon Rain), ive leaned a little more into the dragon storm theme, but some cards you might consider ive had great luck with Lathliss, Dragon Queen is great to pull at your oponents end step, then pull utvara swing for at least 11 and have 3 dragons on the field, and pair that with an early Dragon Tempest and you out right win sometimes. Gratuitous Violence is almost overpowered in this deck, even more insane with Dragon Tyrant , amazing results. Ive also enjoyed , Synod Sanctum , Safe Haven , Chaos Moon , and many others feel free to look at my deck for more, this one gets a +1 from me though

I am making the same change to my baby, Land, Go who was also at the helm of Child Of Alara. I've made the same switch and have been doing a LOT of research in regards to his ability in combination with lands that matter.
I've come across and interesting land card I think you may be interested in, as was I: Safe Haven
Synergizes very well with Golos himself and has a relevant ability. With all of the abilities of being able to return lands from our graveyard, the second half seems negotiable.
What are your thoughts?

Hi! I'd glad to see that you've discovered the interaction between Unearth and flicker effects (pretty great, isn't it?)
In terms of discard effects (and the wheels that make Megrim cards great), you might want to consider Nekusar, the Mindrazer . You could build an entirely separate deck dedicated to the effect, or combine the themes and switch between the two generals depending on how you feel.
As for cards to support blinking and Sedris. Nephalia Smuggler is another repeatable blink effect, with the added bonus of being a creature that can be unearthed (although the ability is a bit expensive). Nezahal, Primal Tide provides strong card advantage and also can circumvent the Unearth exile.

Love the deck. Currently, I'm working on a purely creature build, but I'll keep your list close at hand for reference in case mine doesn't perform well. You have the Cat to bounce Nikya if need be, but you could also use a card like Erratic Portal to bounce her and other ETB creatures. And there's also Endless Sands and Safe Haven as well.
