Added 4x Azusa, Lost but Seeking as a turn 4 ramp card, and its abilities stack with any other 'play additional land' cards such as Dryad of the Ilysian Grove.

I_Want_To_PlayAllTheDecks Ahh thank you so much! Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is super userful! I have a question, though. Does its abilities only work when it is on the battlefield? Or does it stay in effect even when Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is removed? It doesn't say 'when it ETB' so...

Here is the thing, if you added stuff just to protect the lantern the deck would become way to convoluted. Just also add Dryad of the Ilysian Grove.

I began to build a deck with the same commander, but ended up with Yarok, Landlubber, and didn't eventually even include Archelos in the 99, haha... though I did include Amulet of Vigor, because what first struck me about the Old Tortoise was his synergy with all of the land fetch that bring lands in tapped.

Our decks have similarities, so I think I can recommend some stuff. Firstly, Strip Mine and Wasteland can take out a lot of lands if you have Ramunap Excavator and things that allow additional land drops. Secondly, speaking of additional land drops, I recommend adding a bit more of that. My top choices for you would be Oracle of Mul Daya and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove. Also consider the possibilities of Storm Cauldron.

That's all I got. Love the build!

It is my personal feelings that whilie an awesome card, depths can be slotted into enough decks already doing good enough without being able to make a 20/20 Indestructible creature.

Something I haven't seen mentioned is that one piece is not a land, but both are with Thespian's Stage. This is increddibly difficult to deal with outside of answering Marit Lage, but they can just loam back both pieces until your opponent runs out of answers, esp brutal with Dryad of the Ilysian Grove (which also conincedentally lets depths tap for mana). In land based whenever you play something like Primeval Titan, Hour of Promise etc. you just find both pieces.

Then there are also dedicated depths shells, and even if you Blood Moon thanks to a rules change iirc depths now enters with 0 counters, so the next Naturalize becomes an instant speed 20/20.

I'm not sure weather it would be a 'broken' deck, but I think that the decks that would gain the most don't need anything more to help them right now.

I don't know if there is a way to reply directly to your comment on my Omnath deck if there is I apologize for commenting on your wall.

Could you make your deck visible I would love to see it :D

To your comment: I went a little harder on being able to bounce lands and to get Omnath and landfall triggers on others turns as well. What cards do you use? Don't you lose a lot of mana from the second land played with Omnath on other player's turn?

I agree that Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle is only working with Dryad of the Ilysian Grove but I feel like the only price I am paying for running this combo is having the land enter the battlefield tap.

To your comment: Have you consideredRoil Elemental and Admonition Angel? I feel like they are pretty expensive, i.e. triple blue or white. What do you think?

What do you think about Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, Ancient Tomb and Command Beacon they feel pretty bad in this deck ...

thanks again for the feedback

Nice deck!

Dryad of the Ilysian Grove does the same thing as Prismatic Omen, but let’s you put extra lands into play.
