Turntimber Sower Discussion
6 months ago
A few critical cards I think you might be missing out on:
Elvish Rejuvenator is kind of everything this deck wants to do, acting as a way to sacrifice lands while also tutoring up silver bullet lands.
I could see this deck being the type to empty its hand pretty quickly, so Ghirapur Orrery can probably do some serious work.
As long as you're sending land cards to the graveyard, Turntimber Sower provides a steady stream of chump-blockers that also happen to get pumped by Avenger, and also acts as an additional way to recur key lands.
Finally, while it lacks any specific synergy with lands, Veil of Summer is powerful enough and has a low enough opportunity cost that it probably deserves a slot.

Ever Consider Hardened Scales ? I know it works with only a few cards but it could turn Korvold into a threat much faster.
I've played a few Jund land decks and they all have roughly the same problem: low creature counts. I would suggest something that creates tokens like Turntimber Sower , Dragonmaster Outcast , or the aforementioned Crawling Sensation . Hammer of Purphoros works triple duty by eating lands, making bodies, and giving everything haste.

Easy switch outs to me:
Acidic Slime - you have plenty of destroy enchantment or artifact things.
Verdant Force - meh with what you're doing
Turntimber Sower - also kinda meh
Baloth Woodcrasher - no trample, would be chumped all day long
Seer's Sundial - you should be ramping enough that this is irrelevant to you - green and black are excellent ramping colors save this for the red or colorless deck you're going to build in commander.
Second Harvest - too situational
Deathreap Ritual - seems very situational
Zendikar Incarnate - can grow fast, no trample or other evasion
Scute Mob - dangerously fast growing - no trample or other evasion
Crop Rotation - search for a land card, put on battlefield
Sylvan Scrying - search for a land card, put in hand
Reap and Sow - destroy target land and or search for a land
Tempt with Discovery - search for a land and for as many lands as opponents search for

Turntimber Sower does make Hoof food, but it also provides repeatable land recursion.
Squirrel Wrangler is actually a strong utility card. It makes two bodies per activation and it's a sac outlet. It's very powerful with Gaea's Cradle (as are the other two creatures mentioned). Sacrifice one land, net three creatures, Cradle taps for an additional 3. Repeat as necessary :)
I'm not really a fan of Amulet of Vigor for this deck. I don't play enough lands that enter tapped or cards that put lands into play tapped. Elvish Reclaimer can be activated at instant speed which makes the land entering tapped irrelevant. Lotus Field is just another land that sacrifices two lands for immediate value when it enters. It entering tapped isn't really a downside because it can sac tapped lands (unlike Lotus Vale and Scorched Ruins ). As for Evolving Wilds , I'm cutting that for the strictly better fetchland from Throne of Eldraine.

I really like this! Very close to what I would make in a world where I have several thousand dollars to spend on cards. Are Turntimber Sower , Avenger of Zendikar and Squirrel Wrangler just craterhoof food? I've been unimpressed with them in the past. Also, with the advent of Elvish Reclaimer , Lotus Field and Springbloom Druid I've been leaning more and more toward playing Amulet of Vigor . Is that too cute?

More points for discussion
I am no longer convinced that Omnath, Locus of Rage is the best fit for the deck his only real synergy in this case is when after paying his full cost (7 mana), resolving a Scapeshift , Splendid Reclamation before using a board wipe like Damnation or Blasphemous Act wherein all this time, Omnath, Locus of Rage himself is not removed. There seem to be just too many points of failure to too little reward in this case.
I believe that Avenger of Zendikar is in a slightly different boat as the plant tokens are put down as part of the resolution, and he is not reliant red mana as well as green mana to cast. The main mana accelerant in the deck is Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to try and resole a large Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire so colour fixing large cost spells is important. Most creatures are also based around synergies such as:
Land ETBs ( Tireless Tracker ).
I think that potentially Omnath, Locus of Rage and Turntimber Sower may be the cuts to fit in Mirage Mirror and Elvish Reclaimer as more utility rather than trying divert resources into what feels like a 3-card synergy for which the deck has limited (or precious) tutors.
When the deck was originally put together (from the precon) I was throwing around a whole bunch of cards and one that caught my eye was a foil copy of Reap and Sow I had lying around. Compared to Realms Uncharted and Hour of Promise it may appear underwhelming but it does have two important distinctions: the land enters untapped, and it can be a targeted land destruction spell if needed. Now specifically this could be used to destroy two lands if needed by entwining the costs and also retrieving a Wasteland or Strip Mine but I think that an unrestricted land search effect wouldn't be unwelcome. There is limited room for cuts until a bit more testing but I think that it could be a good supplemental effect. The only concern would be having an oversaturation of land search effects without payoffs.

I'm gald you like the deck, nagelbites!
I have considered Titania several times in the past and I believe that she would do very well in the deck. The sole reason I haven't ever put her in is that I am not completely sure if she's core enough to my strategy to justify her price.
