Tajuru Preserver Discussion

Hey I just wanna say I love this deck! It bears quite a bit of similarity to my own Tana and Reyhan Partner Token Stuff. I'm digging the manland tech in Raging Ravine, that works very well with Reyhan and the like. One thing I'll recommend is to add in a manland like Mishra's Factory or Mutavault so that you can activate them, post-boardwipe, with Reyhan's +1/+1 counter triggers on the stack -- that saves them all and the reason those two are specifically called out is that they can tap for mana, and use that mana to become a creature. Once I drop Mishra's Factory, I basically don't use it as mana if Reyhan is out so that I can always save the counters. Have you thought about Dryad Arbor and Green Sun's Zenith ?
I recently discovered Fallen Ideal myself, that is one sweet piece of spice. Greater Good I ended up cutting, since i so rarely had large creatures, but your list looks like it might avoid that issue better than mine. I didn't even realize Thunderscape Familiar was a thing, that is fantastic.
What are some of the weak points you see in your list during actual gameplay? Mine is always a weakness to board wipes, obviously, but especially when someone turns off my ability to use Dictate of Erebos via Angel of Jubilation , Tajuru Preserver , or Sigarda, Host of Herons . An older version of your list was actually one of the main inspirations for the linked deck above, but I ended up taking it a bit more combo direction. You haven't lived until you get both Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest out to play with Reyhan on board. Purphoros, God of the Forge on board when I hit with Tana, the Bloodsower or chord out an Avenger of Zendikar ? Yes please.
Anyway, great deck! I love its current state.

Hey, good version of Rafiq.
Consider expanding on the enchantment theme? Adding more enchantresses and more enchantments? I suggest this because I see Sovereigns of Lost Alara and it's good with auras with Raqif.
Cards within the budget to consider adding:
- Exotic Orchard
- Ash Barrens
- Yavimaya Coast
- Reliquary Tower
- Enchantress's Presence : enchantress.
- Kor Spiritdancer : aura enchantress.
- Satyr Enchanter : enchantress.
- Favor of the Overbeing : with Rafiq +2/+2 flying and vigilance.
- Eldrazi Conscription : combos with Sovereigns to make Rafiq as powerful as an Eldrazi.
- Ethereal Armor : one drop, lots of pump.
- Tajuru Preserver : protect Rafiq from sac.
- Wild Growth : one drop ramp.
- Fertile Ground : ramp.
- Snake Umbra : draw, double draw with double strike.
- Open the Armory : aura/equipment tutor.
- Alpha Authority : hexproof and evasion.
- Heliod's Pilgrim : aura tutor.
- Darksteel Mutation : removal.
- Beast Within : removal.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Temple of the False God
- Blossoming Sands
- Tranquil Cove
- Treva's Ruins
- Frontline Sage
- Battlegrace Angel
- Grunn, the Lonely King
- Angelic Benediction
- Behemoth Sledge
- Medomai the Ageless
- Hydra Omnivore
- Cold-Eyed Selkie
- Infiltration Lens
- Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist
- Stonehewer Giant

I would invest in Kor Spiritdancer since it is so good at taking over the game in a matchup like infect where the opponent doesn't have a lot of removal. Also, more one drop enchantments, like Cartouche of Solidarity or Gryff's Boon would make the deck better (both of these enchantments cost very little money). For the sideboard, Tajuru Preserver is only a couple of dollars, and would definitely be worth it, as it is cheap sacrifice protection.

Probably this deck's biggest weakness is sacrifice effects, so consider adding Tajuru Preserver and perhaps another way to tutor for it.

In mono green there is only one such effect and that is Tajuru Preserver otherwise you can play creatures that may benefit from being destroyed I.E. Young Wolf , Strangleroot Geist , Kitchen Finks , or cards like Scavenging Ooze that utilize the graveyard, if you splash white you gain access to Sigarda, Host of Herons and Sigarda, Heron's Grace . Hope this Helps

If you want a one card solution, Tajuru Preserver . Otherwise, token generation is a great option against sacrifice.
