You want Equilibrium in this deck, probably also Cloudstone Curio & Crystal Shard . I'd say take out control magic, although if you really want to keep it, Treachery is far better choice I think for same effect. Other than that Prismatic Omen would be first on my list to take out as it doesn't offer much, that and since you have so much mana ramp already, Sylvan Scrying would be the next to take out. But I love this deck, anyone willing to be mean enough to play Palinchron ,Eternal Witness , & Prime Speaker Zegana with Deadeye Navigator gets my respect. Also, Mana Web ? I love it. But it's gotta destroy friendships, that effect is just mean, I'd never seen this card until now. Also, if you're intent on being a dick with deadeye navigator, do it right, run Mystic Snake and Coiling Oracle , the combos they offer off of their ETB's are a lot of fun, for you at least.

Didn't see this comment until now, thanks for the advice! The Mana Web works great with Prismatic Omen , it works for fixing my mana base as well, but I think I might take that out. It's just funny to me resolving a Tooth and Nail is an instant win. Haha

You don't really have enough ways to interact with the opponent for this to be truly competitive. Many competitive commander decks can insta win on T3/T4. As far as I can tell literally the only card you could use would be Beast Within . I honestly don't feel that mono green can be very competitive just by virtue of the fact that it has such littler interaction.

I'd have to disagree with you there, though it's mono green, Azusa decks completely take off from the get go. Card interactions with artifacts and land dropping, allows the interactions to keep going. Things like Strip Mine and Crucible of world's, can destroy a land each turn, not to mention with azusa only, destroying 3 per turn. Card's like horn of greed allow you to drop your lands, and fill up your hand instantly. But really you have to play it some to realize the power. Ramping like green normally does, but with extra land drops per turn makes it extremely explosive.

I play an Azusa deck. I realise the power. But you still have to realise you don't have enough interaction in here to consistently stop combo decks from just insta-winning. Strip Mine is all fine and great but it depends on another card to do any real damage.

It's been my experience that Azusa decks don't want ramp spells because your commander is already a ramp spell. So i would suggest cutting the cards that only search for basic lands with no other effect, and replace them with draw spells or card advantage engines. Some suggestions I could give would be Regrowth is basically draw whatever card you want from your graveyard. Oblivion Stone would be another way to clear a board which I think you need. Constant Mists is an incredibly powerful card when played in a Azusa deck. It can keep you in a game almost single-handed. A rather unknown card that pulls a lot of wait for me is Creeping Renaissance . It's essentially one of the best ways to bounce back into a game. Praetor's Counsel is another way to get back your graveyard with no maximum hand size for the rest of the game. If you need more ways to just kill table Triumph of the Hordes is almost a one card kill as long as you have a decent sized board. Hopefully I gave you some good ideas.

@ChiefBell : Imo, combo decks are combo decks, they go about a certain pattern that tries to combo off as soon as possible, such as leyline helm, mikeaus triskellion, mind over matter, or just hermit druid. Some of those go off turn 4-5, and some can even go off turn 1-2 based on the hands. But what's consistent in Azusa is the tempo, with the off chance of silly interactions that can't exactly win turn 1-2, but are pretty potent. You're going to be dropping your hand pretty fast, it's just the luck of the draw to accelerate card draw or abuse the tempo versus how fast they can do their thing.

@AdrenalineBomb: I've been considering all is dust versus oblivion stone and usually interchange those. As for Constant Mists .. that sounds extremely good, thanks for the suggestion!

I like running both wrath effects if able but that's just my personal opinion. Constant Mists is absurd, I love that card.
