The Gitrog Monster

At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice The Gitrog Monster unless you sacrifice a land.
You may play an additional land on each of your turns.
Whenever one or more land cards are put into your graveyard from anywhere, draw a card.

Blackerlotus13 i do have Phyrexian Tower to sac World Shaper to. i will most likely add Crop Rotation in i just got my playset for my legacy Turbo Depths deck, but if i can get another it will most likely go in the deck. I may add high market if i find that i am having issues with getting World Shaper off the board i will look at re-adding Ulvenwald Hydra i took it out to put in a different high drop that i have since then replaced it will get to go back in the maybe board
its kinda funny i have also had a Omnath, Locus of Rage and a The Gitrog Monster deck and loved them both and this allowed for that piece of both that they were missing but yeah love Lord Windgrace and it has risen to be my favorite commander to play.

I like to think this commander is natural for me to play because I had both an Omnath, Locus of Rage EDH and a The Gitrog Monster EDH deck. I had taken pieces from both of them to build a couple of Simic Commander decks. Not wanting to take apart my new decks, I had a dilemma if i wanted to play them again, THAT IS UNTIL Lord Windgrace showed his head. I got the bright idea to combine the remnants of those two decks (both being land theme) into the smosh you see now (link provided above). Although some people will look at my deck and be daunted by the budget. I happened to get lucky a LOT when I was trading out of modern to get into EDH.
I will make 3 other recommendations based on my experience. I see that you play a World Shaper but no ways to sacrifice him on command. The additions of High Market, Crop Rotation, and Ulvenwald Hydra will help your consistency quite a bit. not just for the High Market but for other lands you might want to search out, or even just to get extra landfall triggers.

Blackerlotus13 yeah i am needing to grab a Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and i have played with The Gitrog Monster and i will probably end up putting him back in the deck now that i have it at lot more tuned to recursion, but back when it was a new deck to me i didnt have much recursion other than Lord Windgrace's -3 now that i have some reliable ways to get lands back he is going to be a staple piece now to just take a piece out i will most likely take out Loyal Guardian as its ok but The Gitrog Monster would be better. in fact i just swapped them lol i really do appreciate all the help fellow windgrace players have done to make this deck better and i will defiantly take a look at your deck and

If you have 8+ cards in your hand with the frog on the battlefield and have a shuffler effect in your deck in the form of Gaea's Blessing or Kozilek the Butcher, you can sculpt the perfect 7 card hand by discarding salvage, dredge, returning salvage to hand and maybe putting a "draw a card" trigger from the frog on the stack. Continue you this loop because you must discard to 7 before your turn ends, and with your draw triggers, you can pick the perfect 7 and discard the rest. Kozilek makes it so you cannot mill yourself out, as long as you can discard the Kozilek.
Also, Seismic Assault effects are not infinite in your deck because you have no shuffling effects. You can only dredge if you have the 2 cards in your library, so at MOST, your deck does 100 damage (with a more reasonable amount being in the 70ish range).
I do love the deck though! It is super sweet!

Thanks man,Blackerlotus13! This would be the first deck that really surprised me a lot. It made me happy to be able to play The Gitrog Monster, Titania, Protector of Argoth, and Omnath, Locus of Rage all in one deck. It's the only deck I made that won on the first game it was played.
Squandered Resources really is a great card, I once had to face off a really powerful stax deck and this card really came through for me.

Both do nothing in the deck beside the rare case when The Gitrog Monster is on the field

KayneMarco: Indeed. Those are obvious synergies. Titania, Protector of Argoth is another one. Squandered Resources does a similar thing, and you have more control over which lands go to the graveyard. The Terrain doesn't grant that luxury. The mana doubling is nice, but I wish there was more control over what lands you sacrifice rather than all of them.
