The deck looks nice, but you might want to add more green mana sources. Your pie chart will show you green sources and cards that require green. Good luck! Also, Seismic Assault has a lot of synergy with Lord Windgrace and Crucible of Worlds . I see you have The Gitrog Monster but no Dakmor Salvage Those two cards combo with each other very well, allowing you to draw a lot of cards, or if you have a shuffle effect, like Gaea's Blessing , you can draw your library, if you do it right.

i like World Shaper and i like Seismic Assault in here. Also, im not sure of your budget restrictions, but Amulet of Vigor seems like a decent add. Ofc, Greater Good with titania and omnath is fun

Why not splash red over blue for access to Faithless Looting , Magmatic Insight , Molten Vortex and Seismic Assault ? Prized Amalgam could be cast off of Gemstone Mine if you wanted to keep them in, but Young Pyromancer could be a decent replacement since this is a midrange, spell based deck.

@Saljen I don't like the Vedalken Archmage since it costs 4, but the other suggestions seem pretty cool, espceially the Scrap Trawler and Mind Stone . Grim Lavamancer is a good idea if I get rid of Slag Fiend , and Dark Confidant seems really good! As for Seismic Assault , I would probably use Molten Vortex over it since it is not 3 red mana, which can be hard to cast.

Have you thought about adding in tutors to streamline the deck even more. Or adding in cards like Seismic Assault in conjunction with Zuran Orb or as you have Squandered Resources to have synergy with Creeping Renaissance/Shadow of the Grave/Praetor's Counsel.

Some card you might have missed also for ramp (Oracle of Mul Daya) and protection (Constant Mists).

Hope that helps!

What do you think about these changes?

I like Seismic Assault, as there isn't much reason for you to continue dropping lands past 4. With all the inherent draw from the 0/1 drop artifacts, you'll quickly pick up a hand of 5+ lands, so when you draw into the singleton Seismic Assault you can finish the opponent off.

I also find that Dark Confidant makes the deck. Most of the deck is 0-1 CMC, so you can safely have 2-3 of these on the field at the same time and still take less damage than most decks would from 1. The draw is incredibly helpful to prevent this deck from stalling out.

Grim Lavamancer is a great way to use the cards in your yard, and follows up with the semi-burn game plan. A singleton Vedalken Archmage can really help you go off if you land it as well.

You might want to consider Goblin Grenade and Infernal Plunge, plunge is the quickest way to get the mana you need, the grenade is more a sideboard option. Seismic Assault might give you an alternative win, since your deck is dead if Indomitable Creativity gets hit with Surgical Extraction or similar... For the same reason, I'd agree with you that Boseiju, Who Shelters All needs a space in this deck.

Great minds think alike ;)

Off the bat I want to thank you for the constructive suggestions. Was running 2 of them but cut them to add Nissa, Vital Force. Has been a very strong replacement. However, Eternal Witness might find a spot again just because it is pure value.

We have an identical pile of instants in our decks! Only difference is I'm running Entomb and you are running Reanimate in its place. Reanimate is an amazing black staple but I don't think it fits the strategy of our lists. Entomb puts Life from the Loam where it needs to be or any land you need if Crucible of Worlds/Ramunap Excavator are on board. Also triggers The Gitrog Monster.

We have a lot of overlap in sorcery and artifacts. Really like how you are running all the big destroy-everything sorceries. Might need to tweak my list to include a few more of them as our decks will recover much faster than our opponents. Rings of Brighthearth has been amazing in my list but I see you aren't running as many utility lands. Sword of Feast and Famine is also worth considering as it focuses on our main strategy of lands.

Again, a lot of overlap with our enchantments. Tainted AEther and Price of Glory... deliciously evil. Will be figuring out how to add these to my list immediately.

Only real suggestion for you is find a spot for either Borborygmos Enraged or Seismic Assault. In my list I'm running the Dryad Arbor/Green Sun's Zenith/Natural Order Legacy combo with great results. It can also grab Omnath, Locus of Rage or Titania, Protector of Argoth to end the game.
