Then, all you'd need is something to do with all those triggers.

What about Skyshroud Ranger and Sakura-Tribe Scout ? Are they not strictly better than lets say Arbor Elf ? Also, what are your thoughts on the upcoming Faerie Seer from MH1? Guess its an auto-include :)

This deck can certainly be more turbo - way way more turbo. Some of the decks I took inspiration from are closer to that style.
I have had Burgeoning in and out of the deck. I currently have it in because I also have Jokulhaups in and I like that it survives the effect allowing me to rebuild more quickly than my opponents. The card I typically swap in for it is Skyshroud Ranger , another 1 mana Exploration effect that is a bit more useful for us to play extra lands in our turn, which is the ideal time to do so.

magicjoeg Wow! I'm super flattered to help you build your first then! <3
It's been a while since I've been working on decks- According to TCGPLayer, I can still find Entrancing Melody for 15-30 cents on the site in NM. However, Skyshroud Ranger unfortunately has spiked. Gonna replace it with Oashra Cultivator I think in the temporary.

First off, I love the deck. Great job with the deck, budget primer and on the work you put in the collaborative primer.
I’m looking maybe to make a Yisan deck and all 3 of these resources were of huge help to me. However, I still have some questions.
Here are the cards I’d remove compared to your list and the reasons for their exclusion (disregarding few manabase changes along the same lines);
Ravenous Slime - my meta isn’t big on graveyards, so I could see myself wanting better verse 3 options
My meta is mostly creature-based with lots of MAN/Blood pod/Tymna decks around. Blue is less prevalent than it is in other competitive metas, and green is the most represented color. There is quite a bit of stax (although I have yet to see a Linvala) and, as I’ve mentioned already, graveyards aren’t widely used here. Non-competitive crowd favors creatures and combat. I don’t expect to play with them a lot, but if we’re paired at a tournament, I’d like Yisan to steamroll them.
Here are my ideas;
Tendershoot Dryad - my meta is quite keen on combat, and I’d like to be conpetitive in that regard. A decent verse 5
Hornet Queen - pretty much the same as Dryad, but at verse 7 and it stops occasional Zur or Kraum
Wayward Swordtooth - a bad Azusa, but a ramp effect nevertheless. Could be useful because of its 5/5 body that can save me some life while enticing Tymna players to soften up the rest of the table for my Hoof
Tireless Tracker - because our games can get grindy, having a good draw engine and a beatstick in one sounds good.
Skyshroud Ranger - makes up for lost t2 Yisan capcity lost by excluding Diamond and it’s an elf. Nothing to write home about, but seems decent
Mana Vault - t2 Yisan enabler
Oracle of Mul Daya - if I had one, I’d probably just play it in place of Azusa. But I traded mine away long time ago. Its current price and likelihood of being reprinted make it an uneasy buy for me. But if you think it’s worth the buck in here compared to other options, I can bite the bullet.
Ulvenwald Tracker - Tymna eliminator and generally a repeatable creature removal in a relatively creature-heavy meta
Quest for Renewal - seems to me like an extra copy of Muse that’s lest susceptible to removal.
Autumn's Veil - not as relevant as it would be in some other metas, but it could be a good piece of combo protection
Noxious Revival - grave recursion plus grave hate if I need it. Its instant speed, low cost and versatility make it look good in my eyes even if this deck can’t really abuse it like some other decks can.
Return to Nature - a new goodie from WAR. A strictly better Naturalize that can not only remove an opposing stax piece, but can double as grave hate in a pinch. As with Revival, grave hate isn’t the selling point, but a part of a package deal that even without it should be a decent option.
Natural State - a cheap way to remove opposing stax. It hits los of relevant stuff, since I don’t see much Chain veils, PEngines and whatnot around (excet when I’m the perpetrator...)
Lightning Greaves - protection and haste enabling together make for a tempting offer
I’d appreciate it greatly if you could comment on these and suggest which of these to add. If you have any other additions below 20$, I’m all ears.
Thank you in advance!

If you like Fling or Thud , consider Bloodshot Cyclops for a more repeatable version of the effect. Cards like Gaea's Touch , Ghirapur Orrery and Rites of Flourishing are budget cards that let you play additional lands, and the Rites lets you draw an extra card, too. Sakura-Tribe Scout , Skyshroud Ranger , and Walking Atlas offer you more Llanowar Scout effects, and you might find Budoka Gardener to be on theme for you deck, too. I'd recommend Goblin Bombardment as a good free sac outlet for Omnath's death trigger, and Warstorm Surge to bring some more pain when your big creatures come into play - straight upgrade over Where Ancients Tread .
Looks good so far! Hope this helps.

This list really needs a Laboratory Maniac for a few reasons
It can be a secondary wincon because there are times you can go off almost by accident
just a thought, looks like a blast to play, as are most Tatyova, Benthic Druid lists :)

Hello Metropolis39, thanks for feedback.
I believe that Cultivate is a better option than Search for Tomorrow , you get one land for the battlefield and one for you. I will always opt for turn one Llanowar Elves or Skyshroud Ranger , as Skyshroud Ranger and Llanowar Elves gives me three mana on turn two.
This deck is definitely not competitive.
