Cradle is never worse than a forest. On average it taps for 3.

Tectonic Reformation is the red version of Trade Routes . It took the spot of the 3 Onslaught cycling lands. Amazing draw engine with Life from the Loam .

Dryad Arbor is the most important piece of the Green Sun's Zenith into Natural Order early game combo.

Forge of Heroes was weak and was cut.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth might get added for the color buff but the combo with Mana Web is very intriguing.

Kiora's -1, Mystic Sanctuary , an extra turn spell, and something that bounces lands - say Mina and Denn, Wildborn or Trade Routes . Add in some Fires of Invention , Growth Spiral , etc and you've got a hell of a taking turns list. Even if the goal is just to play all the cards in your hand instead of going infinite, its a hell of an option.

Mystic Sanctuary + Trade Routes is dope too, and in a 'put it on top of your library' list works wonders. Counterbalance also keeps looking better.

I have just done some testing- you need to try Trade Routes / Tolaria West . It allows you to reliably repeat any spell- which includes locking your opponent out of the game with Gigadrowse / Exhaustion .

Retreat to Coralhelm + Llanowar Scout + Trade Routes + a basic land = INFINITE LANDFALL!!!!

And Hedron Crab would be a nice Win-Con with this combo.

I'm running this combo in my Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle EDH Deck.

Vzq, Thank you so much for suggesting Trade Routes for this deck! I was trying to look at a way to bounce lands in the late game, but I couldn't find anything suitable.

Looks Sweet! Trade Routes is always a fun card with Landfall triggers.

Here's my list of Yarok if you want to compare notes.
