Tectonic Edge Discussion

Oh, I forgot to mention - another idea I once had was to make "Tasigur, the Golden Fang Land Stuff", where you basically use tutors to get Life from the Loam, put out cards like Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Tectonic Edge and Wintermoon Mesa and go from there.

Not a bad start! My one real recommendation is to try and focus the deck up a bit more. It seems to me that the deck is trying to go into a few different directions, I'm seeing 1) a landfall strategy, which is typical for most Lord Windgrace decks, 2) land destruction with Strip Mine, Wasteland, Tectonic Edge, Dust Bowl & Destructive Flow and 3)a little bit of artifact hate, Collector Ouphe & Damping Matrix. Personally, I think that's a little bit scattered and I'd recommend trying to focus it up a bit more. I'm personally not a fan of Amulet of Vigor in these decks. Windgrace builds typically are slower decks to begin with and I just think it's a wasted spot in the deck. It's definitely a powerful card though for sure. Also, I think you need more lands. I haven't seen a good and well functioning Lands Matter deck with less than 40 lands in it. On a similar note, being a landfall strategy, you need more ways to play multiple lands per turn. Cards like Oracle of Mul Daya and Azusa, Lost but Seeking are amazing..and expensive yes I know. Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is a recent printing that has the same effect for 3 mana.
All in all I think you have a good start to your Windgrace deck! My build I am constantly tinkering with and I'm at a good spot now where I like it. Take a look and maybe it'll give you some ideas for your own!

Introducing the synonyms/nicknames system to alleviate all those "wtf was that one land of that one cycle named?" problems that plague you.
This system is simple. It is designed to redirect terms that you typed out that match a synonym/nickname of a card, to that card name. This lets you never have to remember the name "Seachrome Coast" and can instead just type out "WU Fastland" (as an example). Note that this only works in text edit entries on deck lists and inventory, not the live edit or the card search forms.
There is a lot of other things that are utilised here as well.
- Godzilla Names
- Non-American Spellings
- Common Nicknames
- Common Misspellings
- Redirections of Misspelled Submissions
- Each side of a split card as a synonym (unless they already exist as a card).
Not needing to know the name of each card in a land/artifact cycle is a big boon, but you still need to know the nickname of that cycle and the syntax. For lands/mana rocks/the swords of X and Y at the present moment it is always "XY Nickname" or "YX Nickname". Examples:
- WU Fastland
- GR BFZ
- GW ABUR Dual Land
- BW Fetch
For 2 colour lands, it is always the two colour letters, followed by the nickname, and then followed by the option to have the world land either connected to the nickname or not. (these are all viable options for example: "WU Fast", "UW Fastland", "UW Fast Land".) For 3 colour lands, it is only the primary order of colour letters you see on cards, or the Alara/Khans name. (WUB Lair, Mardu Triome as examples.) Swords and other artifact cycles follow the same setup (though swords can also be "Sword of GB" or "Sword of G and B"), and mono colour land cycles use the same setup just with only one letter. Note that none of these are plural, so don't put that s in. Colourless cards that are a part of a cycle use C/Colorless/Colourless.
Some of these cycles don't have well defined names yet (like BBD) and some of these cycles have had too many names that people constantly fight over so there was no point in bothering to put them all in and instead I just used the TLA (specifically BFZ).
The primary purpose of this is to make the ability to tag cards and edit decks/inventory far more robust than what it has been. Tappedout doesn't presently have a spellchecker, and to be fair most sites don't. It's not an easy feature to implement. So with this synonyms/nicknames feature, we can alleviate some of those aggravations of misspellings or different ways to spell a word by making them valid targets and redirecting them to the right card name. Another benefit of this is the ability to give cards shorthands or nicknames when the community largely doesn't remember the actual name of a card, just their shorthand. We have all been hit with "wtf is that land's name again?" when we know for a fact that it's just "the blue and white shadows over innistrad reveal land". This saves the step of having to open up a search engine to figure out the card name, and in general speeds up and makes the process of building decks and inventory, a lot more enjoyable.
Cycles that currently have nicknames: Show
- ABUR Duals as ABUR/Duals/ABUR Duals
- MDR Artifact Lands as Artifact Lands
- AKH Bike Lands as Bikes/Bicycles/Bicyclings/Cycle Lands/Cycling Lands
- BFZ Lands as BFZ/BFZ Lands
- RAV Guildhalls as Guildhalls
- SHM/EVE Lands as Filters
- VIS Karoos as Karoos/Bouncelands
- RAV Karoos as Karoos/Bouncelands
- MH1 Lands as Horizons/Canopy Lands
- SOI Lands as SOI Lands/Reveal Lands
- Swords of X and Y as XY Swords/Swords of XY/Swords of X and Y
- Temples as Temples/Scrylands
- IKO Triomes as Triomes/Tricycles/Cycles/Cyclings
A lot of the cycle synonyms are meant to intuitive and robust so that you won't even have to think about knowing what the exact written synonym actually is and still be able to get it right on the first try, though it will take time to reach a point in which this is 100% true. As an example of scope, each recognized nickname for a cycle creates 6 entries for each given card in that cycle. So the AKH lands have 30 entries for each card in that cycle, resulting in a total of 150 entries. The Triomes have the same amount, but if I were to add each individual string combination of the colour letters (WUB, BUW, WBU etc) then that count would increase by 45 for each entry, resulting 75 entries for each one, totalling at 375 entries for the whole cycle.
Nicknames will usually be things like "Snappy", "Bolt", "Path", "Bob", "FoW", etc. They are to be commonly used by the larger community as a whole, not what your FNM/play group exclusively uses (though this isn't a hard set in stone as I'm not omniscient).

Here's a list of non-american spellings I have in: Show
Here's a list of things that is in the works to do. Show
- All triple coloured land cycles (triomes, lairs, trilands) to have an entry for each of their letter combinations. (Example, bant lands would have WUG, GUW, WGU, GWU, UGW, UWG.)
- All dual coloured land cycles will have the ravnican guild names to replace the two colours as an option.
- All land cycles will have the TLA as an option to replace the nickname.
- All land cycles to have "Nickname XY" format.
- More non-american spellings.
- More common misspellings.
- Cards that have or do not have the word "and", to have a synonym of the opposite.
- Synonym that is a version of the card name but without punctuation.
- Nicknames of all the cards with commas that ignores everything past the comma, provided that it is unique.
- Fringe/old land cycles.
- A lot of mana rock cycles.
A card can have any number of synonyms/nicknames. But only one synonym/nickname can be tied to a card. So if a new card/land cycle gets printed that has covers a misspelling (like an UNcard might) or has that nickname as it's actual card name, those synonyms will get removed (as an example, Snapcaster Mage cannot have Snap as a nickname). We are also looking to limit the amount of times a synonym has to get removed so nicknames of cards during their presence in the standard formats are not likely to be put in, as they become forgotten or even re-used when they rotate out. These are also done manually so sometimes a change might just take a while to do if it encompasses a large number of cards or a large number of synonyms.. We also won't be going through alternate language as possible synonyms because WotC doesn't nearly double check duplicate card names for foreign languages as well as they do for English cards.
This is not something on the card submission form, so it is not available to edit for any user.
If you know of something missing like common misspellings or common non-American spellings that will be needed, or cycle syntaxes that you tried to use but didn't work, post them here and I'll review them for possible inclusion in the future.
EDIT: Before you ask for a nickname etc to be added:
- Check if it exists first by trying it out.
- Check if the larger community recognizes it, this is done by going around discords, lgs' and other forums about that nickname.
- Check if it has any nsfw, discriminatory or derogatory terminology, we straight up will not allow these.
This isn't a system for your pet nickname that your local playgroup uses. This is a system that can utilize nicknames that naturally grew organically out of continued use from the larger mtg community as a whole. This isn't a "which nicknames do you think this system could use" but rather "which nicknames that are used across the world that we have missed".

Crucible seems clunky even with the fetchland and scapeshift.
Rishkar's Expertise - Draw
Momentous Fall - Draw in response to removal
Harmonize - Draw
Lifeblood Hydra - Draw, beater, lifegain
Lifecrafter's Bestiary - Draw
Life's Legacy - Draw
Skullclamp - Draw
Sylvan Library - Draw
Bolt Bend - Counter counterspells, redirect some removal, some card draw, some extra turns, etc.... very powerful and unexpected. Run it (especially given how your achilles heel is spot removal)
Myriad Landscape - Ramp
Ancient Tomb - Ramp
Castle Garenbrig - Ramp
Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma - Ramp, trample
Savage Ventmaw - Ramp, infinite with Aggravated Assault should you wish to go that route. Itself is just good for tempo. Always good to cast, attack, get mana, use rishkar's to draw 8 and cast a card. Seems very good
Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - Super ramp (and draw)
Shaman of Forgotten Ways - Ramp, wincon
Yavimaya Hollow - Protection
Heroic Intervention - Protection
Tectonic Edge > Field of Ruin
Reliquary Tower - Utility

Keeping in mind that this is a casual budget deck, I think there are still a couple of utility lands you could use in place of a few of your basics that you might find useful, and they aren't too expensive.
I notice you have some land destruction in there: Ghost Quarter can be used to take out a a different utility land from another player. Field of Ruin is similar, but targets nonbasics specifically - ditto for Tectonic Edge and Encroaching Wastes
Ice Floe can keep any one creature without flying that might otherwise pose as a problem.
Barren Moor, Tranquil Thicket, Desert of the Indomitable, Desert of the Glorified, Drifting Meadow and Polluted Mire are also some other land options. They're slow since they enter the battlefield tapped, but you can cycle them if you don't need the mana at that time. Ash Barrens might also be interesting.
A number of the suggestions are from this list; others are anything I could think of at the time that could be helpful while being inexpensive.

I would recommend replacing Field of Ruin with Ghost Quarter or Tectonic Edge. Field of Ruin ramps each player a land, not just you and the person whose land you destroyed. Also, since your deck is really creature heavy I might include Faith's Reward or Brought Back since the deck is vulnerable to sweepers.

Seems like the land destruction deck is missing a lot of the strip lands. I know some are probably not on budget where this deck is now, but the others would work. Encroaching Wastes, Tectonic Edge, and Field of Ruin. Let's just say, my Multani deck would hate to play this deck.

This is a pretty sweet deck, been thinking about making a Pramikon deck for a while, but never found much inspiration (As most just build it as a stall the game until....??? but this one has interesting synergy)
Just so you know, you have 2 Tectonic Edge in the deck atm :)
