Hello casual_competitive, while Underrealm Lich is indeed problematic, the deck does have quite a few ways to deal with it, along any other problematic permanents that my opponents may have on the field.

Having said that, this deck is about having fun, I don't mind not winning as long as I get to do my thing and that thing is drawing cards. Getting to see two thirds of your deck each game is quite enjoyable even for your opponents (as few have expressed after a game or two)

Omniscience_is_life on Keeping track of the stack

We all know tracking the stack and even just individual triggers can be a difficult thing in the 4-player format that is EDH, so what do you all do to remember everything/not miss anything? I know a few basic things like putting your Underrealm Lich on top of your library to remember its replacement effect, but are there any more advanced devices you use to stay on top of things?

casual_competitive oh I know I wouldn't be able to in terms mill him to kill him, but if he has Underrealm Lich on the field, I only need to make him draw around 30 cards and get his library small or non-existent, then answer his creature. Yes, he may have tons of answers in his hand, most of which I'll make them draw. And I have answers to their answers. Everything in commander is situational and I could likely find an answer to deal with it. Or even deal with it while it is on the stack. And who knows, my other opponents might deal with the creature too. Again, I am not worried because my play group doesn't play this card. But for others that may want to play the deck, adjust around it? This list is based on my own meta, if I played against someone outside of my meta and they played things unexpectedly, well tough luck I guess, same would go for any deck. But this is a good thing to think about. I generally only think about answering general staples and cards and play styles in my own meta. I do not often play commander at my LGS, but this could be helpful in anticipating the unexpected. So thank you!

my all time favorite card is in this deck Underrealm Lich, ill tell you how you can break him. since hes replacing an affect we can take advantage of this, for example if you had Sylvan Library you can draw the 2 additional cards each turn and keep them without paying life; meaning every turn youll be digging down 9 cards and choosing 3 of those cards to put into your hand. its also very easy to draw your whole deck especially since you cand deck yourself with Underrealm Lich on the field, with the lich out you can cast Necrologia for like 20 life (youll have to do math to get the exact amount) and draw your whole deck, choose the cards you want to keep (normally a bunch of counters with your wincon) and win the game pretty easily.

     casual_competitive: Necrologia and Sylvan Library are awesome suggestions. Sylvan Library with Underrealm Lich is actually busted lmao. Great call!

     I recently played against Hermit Druid for the first time in an age and it is definitely an addition I need haha.

     I'd actually considered cutting World Shaper altogether in favour of extra land drop effects, and I think that may end up being the case. I picked up Azusa this past week and cut Springbloom Druid for it. I think I may look for Exploration instead of World Shaper in the interest of reducing my average CMC, but I may even swap Springbloom Druid back in for the time being. Splendid Reclamation is great but I can't recur it and I'm not running Archaeomancer/Mnemonic Wall/etc., so I've purposely stayed away from too many Instants/Sorceries. :)

     Amulet of Vigor is a card I'm actively seeking.. for my Landfall deck haha, though you're right, it would have a nice home here too!

     Thanks for the comment(s) and suggestions! =)
