Contamination + Trading Post/Bitterblossom/Reassembling Skeleton = Soft lock if you're into losing friends like me! :)

Deserted Temple + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers Rings of Brighthearth+ a lot of swamps = Infinite Black Mana

All of those lands are great on their own and rings goes well with your commander.

I'm not able to look up the official ruling, but Madness is actually instant speed.

Your opponent attacks with a 2/2. Before blockers are declared, you activate Trading Post's first effect and discard Voldaren Pariah  Flip.

You pay to cast Voldaren Pariah  Flip for it's Madness cost. Then, you can block with it.

I have a Trading Post down and a Voldaren Pariah  Flip in my hand. It's the opponent's turn. They attack with a 2/2 whatever. So...can I activate Trading Post's first ability and cast Voldaren Pariah  Flip through it's madness cast to block that 2/2 to achieve a sort of pseudo-flash effect?

I guess my confusion is whether madness overrides when you could normally cast a card. I'm thinking no because madness states that you can "cast" the card after discarding it, which says to me that you must obey the rules for when you can cast that particular kind of card so, in this case, I could only do that on my turn because it's a creature card. I wanted to check anyway to make sure.

EmblemMan on Goodstuffs resources?

I am not 100% sure if you are asking for this but here is my GW goodstuff selvala deck if you look closely you can see the main idea of a good stuff deck in general.

Good stuff is not just "play good cards" because no one is going to play bad cards. Good stuff decks are decks where all of the cards in it have a purpose and are useful in most situations not just fringe ones. For example, I am in GW so I cannot tutor for spells so a lot of my deck are utility creatures because I CAN tutor for them. Creatures that protect me and my board ( Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Dragonlord Dromoka, Hushwing Gryff , and Sigarda, Host of Herons ) creatures that blow things up ( Acidic Slime , terrastodon , Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Duplicant ) you get the point.

Likewise here is my abzan value deck this deck is not at all tested but I think it has a similar idea that you want. Its just a fair deck that kills everything and then grinds out a fair win condition like a planeswalker or big creature.

Looking at what your deck has now lets look at things that are good value cards and just good cards. Sepulchral Primordial is a good value card its something that will give you multiple creatures for one. However something like Reaper of the Wilds is just a decent card that doesnt really do much but protect itself. Sheoldred, Whispering One is a good card that will grind out value but what does Coiling Oracle really do in your deck? Draw a card maybe? seems kind of lack luster

Here is my suggestion on what to cut : Baleful Strix Brainstorm (its not good unless you have quite a few fetchlands) Golgari Charm Abrupt Decay (replace it with Krosan Grip ) Lim-Dul's Vault Trading Post (I have never hated a card so much in my life) Bloodchief Ascension Archaeomancer (your commander basically does this idk just doesnt seem worth it) and Coiling Oracle

I cannot suggest too many cards because these are not my colors of expertise but hopefully this helped a little.
