Quickly threw together a prototype, competitive-legal version of this deck. HTPOYF:PUE Legal prototype. It's basically this deck without Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Traproot Kami, and has Horn of Greed, Primordial Hydra, and Fastbond.

@GriffinRider It's not necessary. All I do is discard lands and play them from my graveyard with Crucible of Worlds . And on that note, My hand is usually emptied every turn, then refilled from all the draw.
First off, this deck wasn't meant to be competitive legal. If one wanted to play legally they could easily take out 3 Strip Mine for some things that can fetch it out. You really only need one to get things rolling anyway. Also, this deck wasn't meant to win. It is meant to not lose, hence Platinum Angel . No offence to anyone, but the only suggestions I really like for this deck are Horn of Greed and Fastbond . I don't want to clutter the deck with "Win-cons", I want it to be filled with "Not-lose-cons" ;)
Have you considered using Petrified Field for recovering Strip Mine ? Combining Strip Mine and Petrified Field with Crucible of Worlds would get ugly fast considering the amount of additional land drops. Based on the card advantage this deck gives, you could replace Buried Ruin with Petrified Field since you would likely draw the additional milling cards if they are lost early on.
Gilt-Leaf Archdruid could be pretty funny here. You'd have to replace a bunch of the low stuff with mana dorks for it to be functional, but it's maybe worth considering.
Sweet deck idea. I mean, horrible deck idea, but sweet and effective follow-through with it :P
Heh, it's sort of like my shenanigans deck. It's not meant to win, but it's meant to wreak havoc in multiplayer games by turtling as long as possible with walls and casting traps at every opportunity. The only way to win is to catch them with a Ghost Quarter and Archive Trap combo, which actually has won me a few games with it. I had the luck of winning turn 2 by drawing all 4 traps and a ghost quarter in my initial hand. Turn 1 Ghost Quarter, turn 2 destroy their land, make them mill 52 because they searched their library this turn. Instant win against 60 card decks. :P
