Dryad of the Ilysian Grove

Enchantment Creature — Nymph

You may play an additional land on each of your turns.

Lands you control have are every basic land types in addition to their other types.

This looks great! In order to not get mana-screwed on certain colors in a five-color deck, I think Chromatic Lantern, Prismatic Omen or Dryad of the Ilysian Grove could be good in here. I'd also say Savage Ventmaw synergizes well with some of what you seem to be aiming for (like infinite attacks).

OK here we go lol

Creature cuts: Archon of Sun's Grace, Composer of Spring, Courser of Kruphix, Doomwake Giant, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Nessian Wanderer, Nyx Weaver

Artifact cuts: Mesmeric Orb, Whip of Erebos

Enchantment cuts: Battle for Bretagard, Boon of the Spirit Realm, Cast Out, Exploration, Familiar Ground

Sorcery cuts: Extinguish All Hope, Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth, Skyshroud Claim

Instant cuts: None! Add things like Veil of Summer & Silence, though

I'd recommend that you replace all of those lands ramp spells that cost more than 2 with more mana rocks instead! Your guild signets (Selesnya Signet, Orzhov Signet & Golgari Signet) & talismans (Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Resilience & Talisman of Unity) are all better options since this isn't a Landfall deck.

We don’t have any early accelerator cards left in the format beyond Chancellor of the Tangle and Gemstone Caverns (which both weaken consistency at the cost of explosiveness, completely balanced). A 2 cmc card that only punishes fetches and cards like that wouldn’t be too broken.

Also, people could adjust away from fetches if they saw the card too much, but like I said that makes Blood Moon more powerful. The problem with fetches is they can fetch basics against the hate, basically blanking it in most cases.

This would allow them to still play fetches, but they wouldn’t be able to produce mana with them without some type of Prismatic Omen, Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, or Dryad of the Ilysian Grove effect.

There’s enough ways to work around (or remove) such an effect, but attacking greedy manabases from multiple fronts is something I think we need.

Introducing Cumly Cube 1.2! 12 months ago, Cumly Cube was updated to Cumly Cube 1.1, offering many needed changes to the card pool. While this fixed some glaring errors, other faults in the cube remained, and a year of careful consideration has hopefully identified all of them. For Cumly Cube's 1.1's 1-year anniversary, I have chosen to make some changes. These changes serve a few functions:

One of them is to smooth the power level of cards in the pool. There should be very few slam-dunk picks or unplayable cards.

Another is to remove the snow card type from the pool. This makes it so players only have the option of including regular basic lands in their deck, increasing accessibility and ease for drafting.

A third is to balance the level of aggression in strategies. It was identified that playing strong, expensive creatures was a dominant strategy in Cumly Cube 1.1, since there was not enough support for aggressive decks to go under this strategy. While aggressive decks are still not supported heavily, a few changes in the card pool have hopefully shifted the meta to a point in which tempo will be an important dynamic in most matchups.

A fourth and final change is in the creature types. All creatures now belong to a supported creature type, and all non-creature cards that produce creature tokens produce tokens that belong to a supported creature type as well, meaning that tribal synergies are going to be emphasized in Cumly Cube 1.2, as was an original goal of this Cumly cube.

One more thing to note is an important change to the rules. Rule 907 has been removed. Players can no longer use this rule to conjure a basic land of any type into their hand, increasing a need for disciplined drafting. While this rule allowed players to play more ambitious decks, it removed the use for Banners, Lockets, and other methods of fixing mana. Ambitious decks are still possible in Cumly Cube 1.2, they just require some extra effort to draft.

Here are the individual card changes, provided with brief justifications:

ARTIFACT

Arcum's Astrolabe: All snow cards have been cut to remove the inclusion of snow-covered basics when building decks Ankh of Mishra: Too weak in power level Coalition Relic: Too much utility for general decks Coat of Arms: Ideally, this card would often be symmetrical, since opposing players would have tribal synergies, thus making it too weak in power level Coercive Portal: Too strong Coldsteel Heart: All snow cards have been cut to remove the inclusion of snow-covered basics when building decks Crowded Crypt: Creates zombie creature tokens, a creature type not supported in Cumly Cube 1.2 Explorer's Scope: Too strong and too much variability Fellwar Stone: Too strong Glasses of Urza: Too weak in power level Grafted Skullcap: Too narrow Mask of Memory: Too much utility for general decks Paladin's Shield: Too weak in power level Scroll Rack: Too little synergy with the rest of the card pool Sword of Feast and Famine: Protection leads to less interactive games, a dynamic not desirable in Cumly Cube Sword of Fire and Ice: Protection leads to less interactive games, a dynamic not desirable in Cumly Cube Sword of Light and Shadow: Protection leads to less interactive games, a dynamic not desirable in Cumly Cube Sword of Truth and Justice: Protection leads to less interactive games, a dynamic not desirable in Cumly Cube Talisman of Conviction: Too powerful Talisman of Hierarchy: Too powerful Talisman of Resilience: Too powerful

I’ve really liked Gwenna, Eyes of Gaea - I’m thinking something with Wayward Swordtooth is viable instead of Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, although I personally like the additional win condition. I’ve not really come up with a way to spam permanents early to make it viable, but I could definitely see it as an alternate value engine.

There’s not many times I’ve been disappointed by Gwenna, Eyes of Gaea aside from topdecking, since it really allows some explosive plays, untapping after each titan and even manafixing through Blood Moon.

Needing to wait a turn for relevance is the card’s only real downside, so I am only running one copy since I don’t want too many irrelevant draws.

I like the idea. I was working on a similar type of deck that uses Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, and Prismatic Omen. I always use Primeval Titan with any land based win-con.

Well I went over your lands before so won't again, suffice to say I think 35-7 is enough provided you get more ramp spells to find and get them onto the field and that the fastlands are cheap right now and rather flavourful. The bounce lands aren't awful either and I think strictly better than the basic taplands. I know you've got stuff coming so so don't what your planned cuts are but I wouldn't bother with the Anatomist or Viridian Corruptor - one chance to proliferate or destroy a single artifact on ETB isn't really worth it (especially when you could be playing Thrummingbird, an evasive cheap creature who lets you do it repeatedly and can act as a flying blocker if you need it too). Other creature cuts I would recommend Mycosynth Fiend and Vivisection Evangelist - if you can get them I'd say you probably want Dryad of the Ilysian Grove/Joiner Adept to help out with your mana or Yawgmoth, Thran Physician/Volrath, the Shapestealer to get some counters on things. Not convinced by Caress of Phyrexia - it's too expensive to get YOU cards earlier when you need them, you don't want to give an opponent three if they aren't going to die, and hanging on to it in the hope it'll finish someone off is a waste. Phyrexian Rebirth and Merciless Eviction are a bit overcosted and I don't think fit what this deck wants to do. I mentioned some rocks to you that might be a better fit than Sol Ring/Worn Powerstone/Signets/Talismans but see how they do for you first I guess (though I'd get a full set of all the talismans/signets that would go in A couple of other cards you might want to add could be your Phyrexian Arena (I think it's a decent investment for three, isn't nearly as game-warping as Rhystic Study and super flavourful) and Inexorable Tide. Oh BTW not sure if you're aware of it but you can make your aquireboard public so I'll know if I'm suggesting something you're already going to get, which is the main reason I've avoided suggesting stuff from the new set as you said you had some on the way.

I just realized that Chromatic Lantern only let’s lands tap for any color, it doesn’t actually give your lands every basic land type and therefor wouldn’t work with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. My bad.

But Dryad of the Ilysian Grove + Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle is still a good combo.
