More unfun if they keep printing exile + "play as long as in exile" would be adding those to Decree of Annihilation or Worldfire recovery types of decks :)

I think a Knollspine Dragon would fit in really well. With all of the power boosters in the deck you could draw quite a few cards and Magda let's you tutor it. Also you might want to add in a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker as a backup piece to go infinite with Worldgorger Dragon, although Flameshadow Conjuring already works with that. Additionally Worldgorger Dragon goes really well with both Worldfire and Decree of Annihilation because you get your permanents back. I would also consider adding a mana doubler or two Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power would both work well.

You should I've played a few land hate decks in my time and they're always a fun challenge trying to properly balance your need for resources, hating on your opponents and trying to get them not to kill you. When Omnath, Locus of Rage and The Gitrog Monster came out my playgroups heavily spiked their play level and their use of Land based decks. I've got a lot of fond memories from that time of my Zo-Zu deck. I might recommend Decree of Annihilation, it's cycling effect is a good alternative MLD option as it's both instant speed and very annoying to counter.

griffstick I understand AND agree with your point, but I can’t stop grinning to myself at the thought of watching the MLD-player scramble, attempting to not die to a Havoc Festival after finally getting to cycle the Decree of Annihilation he/she has been holding since the beginning of the game.

griffstick outside of Decree of Annihilation I'd argue all MLD can be interacted with on the same axis as any other spell. It can be countered with multitudes of spells or completely ignored if you have things like Heroic Intervention and Teferi's Protection . The circumstances when it becomes "cheap" is when you play the card knowing no one is going to interact with it - which is typically in casual play where blue for the most part is taboo and cards exceeding the cost of a pack are frowned upon.

I have played against a will and rowen deck that used MLD Decree of Annihilation for instance and it wasn't fun. I didn't want to play against it. I've played againt it several times and never beat the deck. It's really hard to beat a deck that takes advantage of land destruction. Congratulations on building a deck that wins all the time. It's not that I hate that I lose to it every time. It's how I lose to it.

Okay, sorry for the delay. Was in the middle of a move.

So first I think some degree of stack interaction would benefit this deck. I don't know what your meta is like, but dealing with enemy control could be a serious pain as you try to establish yourself, so cards like Pyroblast , Red Elemental Blast , Deflecting Swat (or other efficient redirect effects), or even Veil of Summer and Vexing Shusher (use this guy!) could prove to be worth the card slots when the game comes down to protecting your board state or making sure one of your spells resolves.

As for general upgrades I would consider adding in more removal like Beast Within and swap out Wilt for Nature's Claim for the cheaper cost because I feel like the cycling isn't super necessary and 4 life is insignificant. Then, if losing the cycling really bothers you, you can throw in Runic Armasaur for some really sweet card draw that also fits your theme. Additionally, for some pseudo card draw that also has the potential to mess with your opponent's hands AND is most definitely a puzzle, there's Teferi's Puzzle Box . It's a wheel that keeps on wheeling.. sort of. I would recommend potentially adding in more land destruction like Wildfire , Decree of Annihilation , or Obliterate along with recursion for yourself through stuff like Life from the Loam , Ramunap Excavator , Crucible of Worlds , and Titania, Protector of Argoth . Speaking of her, Priest of Titania could probably replace Llanowar Visionary , and along with that, more cheap elf mana dorks i.e. Llanowar Elves and Fyndhorn Elves would do you a lot of good. If you go the MLD route stepping your ramp up is gonna be really important so you can rebuild your board before your opponents can (which is also why you have land recursion), so you might want stuff like Utopia Sprawl , Wild Growth , Carpet of Flowers , or even Exploration if you can swing it. Finally for some additional creature-based wincons, we could put in Conspicuous Snoop + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker as well as Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscripts . To tutor for these you could use Goblin Recruiter to fetch Kiki-Jiki and Snoop , or Imperial Recruiter to tutor for a specific creature you need or just use him to get his gobbo friend and then assemble your win. Some additional misc. cards you might find fun and want to consider: Magus of the Moon , Bane of Progress , Null Rod , Trinisphere , Urabrask the Hidden , Woodland Bellower , Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (don't do this to your friends lol), Ruination , Jokulhaups , and Root Maze .

Not all of this is going to fit in the budget you gave me, I just wanted to give you a lot of options and potentially stuff that you can build toward in the future if you decide you want to really invest in this deck. Hope this helps. :^)
