I used to play wilt-leaf abzan as my primary modern deck, so perhaps some of these pointers will help:

Most decks in Modern choose to play either mana dorks OR black discard as their turn 1 play. Running both leads to difficult decisions on how you want your deck to function in the early and late game. Do you want a powerful 3 drop on turn 2? Then that discard spell will rot in your hand until turn 3 or later. Want to discard turn 1 to see if the coast is clear? Then your 3 drop will be played on curve, and there will be no good time to cast your dork if you have a 2 mana play. For this reason, it is better to have the discard in the SB to bring in against creature-less combo decks to replace your removal rather than maindeck both types of cards.

Kitchen Finks. I know they have a pretty hefty price tag for an uncommon right now, but they are very important to this deck. Your 3 color mana base can be a little painful, but gaining a shockland amount of life back adds up over the match. I'd replace the 4 IoKs in your MD with 4 finks, and never look back. I would also try to find room for 1-2 Birds of Paradise to always enable the turn 1 dork into turn 2 3-drop play. You want your deck to be as consistent as possible, and ramping into a good 3-drop is how you'll normally beat other decks. Playing a Liege on turn 3 is great as well, so the extra dorks are worth it here.

Finally, I would cut 2 of your shocklands in order to play 2 Gavony Townships. Township is half of the reason Lingering Souls makes the cut in this deck, and it allows you to grind the longer matches well while committing fewer threats to the board. It's worth it's weight in gold in this deck, and it's not too pricy of a card. The last thing I'll add, is that with the recent reprint of the enemy fetchlands in MM17, now would be the best time to pick up a set of Verdant Catacombs and a single Marsh Flats. I know they will bring the deck out of 'budget' range, but they're worth it if you want to play a little more competitively, and if you ever switch decks they'll most likely be the cards you keep.

Good luck! And if you want to look at the list I played, here it is: Modern Abzan Beatsticks

enpc: i was referring to the mana like: Wooded Foothills,Marsh Flats, Verdant Catacombs, Flooded Strand, and Arid Mesa. and if this is a commander tournament this deck could be disqualified due to the the fact there are none- mana available

I really like this deck, maybe two Verdant Catacombs and four Overgrown Tombs would round it out better for those times you don't get the mana combo from your Elf early game.

Grisly Spectacle would probably be better off traded out for Hero's Downfall, Fatal Push, or Doom Blade also.

I'm not sure that Conspiracy and Turntimber Ranger is a great strategy either. It's super costly and you might just be better off making an ally themed deck.

Melira, Sylvok Outcast will completely negate your mama combo that Devoted Druid and Quillspike create. If you can't give your creatures a -1/-1 counter then the effect that untaps Devoted Druid is nullified because it can't create the counter.

The idea you have is great, but it does need work. You could do more of an Elf tribal with Quillspike and Rite of Consumption as part of your Wincon.

Hey thanks for checking back in. I'm mostly looking for Scalding Tarn and Verdant Catacombs ; then maybe any of the G/x and R/x for my Omnath build. I'll look through your binder again but for now I think I'll pass.
