If you're looking for a budget replacement for Oracle of Mul Daya, you could try Courser of Kruphix. They both work really nicely with shuffle effects like Rampant Growth. Top card a land? Play it! Not a land, shuffle your deck and reveal a new top card for a second chance.

Here are a few other cards with landfall or care about the number of lands you have: Kalonian Twingrove, Avenger of Zendikar, Oran-Rief Hydra, Rampaging Baloths, Undergrowth Champion, Tireless Tracker.

Also another thing you can potentially consider are fetchlands and their variants like Windswept Heath, Terramorphic Expanse, Evolving Wilds etc. While they are usually used in multicolor decks, it means you get 2 landfall triggers (one for the fetchland and one for the forest)

Also, it couldn't hurt to add some manlands (Dread Statuary, Treetop Village, Blinkmoth Nexus) to this deck, as they really do good with The Great Aurora. AND Undergrowth Champion is an all all-time favorite elemental creature of mine that I think could do really good in your deck.

This is basically a Landfall and burn with Bloodbraid elf. At least that is the idea so far.

Creatures:Bloodbraid Elf x4Turntimber Basilisk x3Groundbreaker x3Ball Lightning x3

Non Creature Spells:Explore x3Khalni Heart Expedition x2Searing Blaze x4Burst Lightning x3Magma Jet x3Magma Spray x3

Lands:Evolving Wilds x4Mountain x8Forest x8

I can't afford playsets of the expensive 20 dollar 50 dollar lands btw.

Anyway, I at least need another creature, but I don't know what. Maybe a planeswalker? No idea. I have not played in a while.

I am thinking of these at the moment.

Undergrowth Champion What do you guys think?

OK first I want to point out the exclusions, cards I don't think fit

Borborygmos Enraged, he isn't a very good card unless you build around him. If you build around him a lil bit you will need cards like Snake Umbra, Keen Sense, and cards to combo with that like Skyship Weatherlight or Abundance to combo off so you draw lands over and over again. Otherwise he is over costed and not very good.

Majestic Myriarch is not a very strong card because of its huge downside. The card needs a team of creatures with him or her to be good. If your gonna keep this card you'll need to build a bit of a token deck to make it worth keeping. With cards like. Dragonlair Spider, Wolfcaller's Howl, Wolfbriar Elemental, Verdant Force, Tempt with Vengeance, Symbiotic Wurm, Sylvan Offering, Hornet Queen, Feed the Pack, Dragon Broodmother, Artifact Mutation, Arachnogenesis, and Ant Queen. These are also all good card suggestions.

Apocalypse Hydra is not a very good card. Gruul Ragebeast is a better spell. Or maybe Savage Ventmaw

Zendikar Incarnate is okay but Wilderness Elemental is faster off the ground making it slightly better. Everyone plays non basic lands first.

Undergrowth Champion is only good in the early game. Maybe Selvala, Heart of the Wilds to speed you up to the late game.

Ulvenwald Hydra, this card is great if your getting a really good land card from it like. Gaea's Cradle or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or whatever else seems good.

I'd drop both retreats exspecialy Retreat to Valakut these cards are not that strong. I'd put Lotus Cobra in its place

Gruul Signet, Gruul Keyrune, and Darksteel Ingot I'd take out for land ramp. The kinds that add them to your hand and or play. Cards like Kodama's Reach (you have in the deck all ready). Seek the Horizon, Journey of Discovery you also might like Harvest Season, Evolution Charm is great too.

Demon519 thank you for the suggestions! I kind of forgot about Undergrowth Champion because I made this deck when Battle for Zendikar was still in standard, which made it a little expensive for my tastes. But now that it's dropped, it's certainly a good addition! So what I did was -1 Primal Bellow for the addition of Arlinn Kord because although it's a good finisher, it's a dead draw early game, whereas Arlin can solve the trample issue and help me go a little bit wider on creatures towards the end. I also cut Grove Rumbler and replaced it with Undergrowth Champion because I don't have a 3 mana creature and I want to be using most of my best combat tricks on turn 4 anyway, so the Rumbler is a dead card in all honesty. Thanks for the suggestions!
