I mostly play EDH, as well as modern and legacy when I feel like being competitive.

NeverCloud - Did you mean a different card? Or did you mean to comment on a different deck?

If Tormenting Voice and Wild Guess are good enough, is Cathartic Reunion also worth playing? Just to let you churn through your deck faster and more consistently.

trying to squeeze another basic forest into this list, suggestions on the cut?

Hells - Ive been playing both Throne and Arch mostly because I knew that I wanted one of them, but I wasn't sure which one was better. Im currently leaning towards Throne of the High City, being able to hide between Glacial Chasm makes it relatively easy to hold onto the monarchy, and if I ever do lose the monarchy I have lots of ways to recur the land and activate it again. Whichever one I cut will become another basic forest.

I cut Diamond Valley for Worthy Cause for two reasons. First, Phyrexian Tower is the better sac land for child, so if you were ever tutoring for a sac land it was almost always that one. And second, having a way to sac child at instant speed that can hide in your hand as well as get around nonbasic land hate has been very useful. The lifegain is nice, but its mostly just the best repeatable nonland sac outlet for child.

As for Bound, the card has been a house. It was something that I cut a while ago but definitely missed having access to. Being able to sac child as well as pick it back up in the same card is very powerful, and being able to regrow things at instant speed has been a wonderful tool for beating mass grave hate like Bojuka Bog or Rest in Peace. Occasionally you cast the Determined side of the card to cantrip or force Child through some countermagic, but a majority of the time I am casting it as a wrath + 5x Regrowth.

The cycle lands do a lot of work, being cantrips early, land drops for exploration openers, and in the mid to late game a way to get extra value off of Life from the Loam like you mentioned. They aren't there specifically for any one of those reasons, instead its the combination of them all that make them worthwhile. It is possible that seven cycling lands is too many, Forgotten Cave is the one that floats in and out of the list depending on my mood, it should likely just be another basic forest.
