Until your next turn, all lands you control become 2/2 Elemental creatures with reach, indestructible, and haste. They’re still lands.

Brutal_B on Omnath - Elemental Lands

Playing lands like Raging Ravine might benefit you. If it dies, it triggers Omnath. Then you can play it from the graveyard via your Ramunap Excavator or Crucible of Worlds. Wakeroot Elemental? Liege of the Tangle? War Elemental? Vastwood Zendikon? Koth of the Hammer looks interesting.

Frewsax on High Risk, Higher Reward

So I have few suggestions while staying on your budget theme and the high risk idea.

The most expensive of my three recommendations is a $20 card called Concordant Crossroads. This card is exactly that, high risk high rewards as all of your creatures start doing things right away and will potentially throw that hasty Ghalta boy into the fray much sooner.

If you find things problematic in the form of your creatures always being killed running something like Fecundity might be fun! It gives you another risky form of card draw as it potentially gives your opponents that option too.

I think one of my favorite green cards sitting at $2 dollars might be just right for you! Recycle offers lots of benefits at the cost of going down to two cards every turn. Every card you play, including lands, draws you a card. Suddenly cards like Elvish Piper with a Seedborn Muse quite fun.

I would not cut the Taunting Elf like you previously mentioned. With the amount of damage you commander does that would be crazy!

Since you mentioned your meta is "swarming" with flyers, why don't you try replacing a single flying removal or wipe with Sandwurm Convergence? This will take care of the problem a little longer unless you experience you are with a play group that has a lot of targeted removal and board wipes for enchantments. Another one is Katabatic Winds. Just a couple ideas for more funny flying hate that can be more permanent.

Maybe if you like to swing a lot, Constant Mists is always a good one to throw into the mix. Also your mention of Wood Elves would be a far better replacement in the deck for Sylvan Awakening. I know those two are not comparable, you might consider changing those two.

sub780lime on Multani, Yavimay's Avatar - The Land is Angry

Thanks for the feedback, Daedalus19876. I can't convince myself to bring into the wild so I think I agree with. Berserk certainly can one-shot commander damage an opponent and Multani's recursion certainly helps with losing it. It can seem a bit win-more and the removal suite is already pretty limited in the deck, that Rain of Thorns seems to have a place, but I've wondered if I should drop it for Broken Bond, which brings the overall curve down. That doesn't help with getting Berserk in, lol. Sylvan Awakening might actually be a target.

Rasaru on High Risk, Higher Reward

Again, excellent information, Profet93! Can you tell I’m still a bit “green” when it comes to deck building?

FYI – There are 2 brutal flyer decks in my playgroup. Alela, Artful Provocateur and a dragon tribal, piloted by Torbran, Thane of Red Fell. That is why I originally added cards like Predator, Flagship, Clip Wings and Whirlwind.

It's frustrating that they can just fly over everything… but if there are better cards, then let’s add them! My notes are below!

Predator, Flagship - see comment above

Emerald Medallion – I see that you’re saying here. I currently have x8 1, x2 artifact creatures and x3 others, for a total of 13, that wouldn’t benefit from this card. However, I still have 26 creatures (that includes my commander) that can use it. Is that not enough to justify the 2 cost of the artifact?

Burgeoning – You’re probably right, plus it would give me some additional budget to work with.

Prodigious Growth – I originally added this for 4 reasons (prob not good ones!) 1. I could slap it on commander for more dmg. 2. I could slap it on my larger dorks for survivability. 3. I could slap it on one of my creatures with reach to take care of some dragons without dying. 4. Card draw, based on creature toughness. I definitely like bear umbra though! Colossal Majesty – I’ve never played elves before, but it seemed while most of their power is lower than 4, their synergy allows them to build quickly. However, I def like Rishkar's Expertise more!

Clip Wings – I can see how this card can be weak, given that the opponent gets to choose which flyer gets destroyed. And obviously this only works against flyers.

Jungle Basin – Understood. Consider it out of there! Replace it with a forest?

Desert Twister – I totally understand what you’re saying here and agree. I’m just trying to stay under budget!

Tranquility – Understood. What would you replace it with?

Whirlwind – see comment above

Journey of Discovery – Replacement options?

Nature's Spiral - Eternal Witness,

Regrowth is strictly better. - I can see why after reading the text!

Overrun - Roger that!

Gaea's Bounty – I see that it’s like Journey of Discovery. Replacement options?

Rude Awakening/Sylvan Awakening – I don’t think I get the “combo” you’re talking about. Are you just saying that you wouldn’t have to tap the lands for mana, but attack with them because you could use cradle to produce mana?
