Hi tiffanyann, Doubling Cube has a reprint now, it is on The List since AFR, and is way more affordable now. I miss a few good draw spells, like Rishkar's Expertise (reprinted in AFR Commander), Return of the Wildspeaker or perhaps Shamanic Revelation , the latter might not be the best choice, better in token heavy decks. Lifeblood Hydra is both an X-cost Hydra and a big draw die trigger. For static draw you could also go for Colossal Majesty or Elemental Bond . Also, I see, you don't run a lot of recursions, Bala Ged Recovery  Flip, Reap the Past , Eternal Witness , Wildest Dreams and my personal favorite card, Praetor's Counsel , after a board wipe, you might be in trouble rebuilding. A card that has to go in your list is Rhythm of the Wild , it protects your big hydras from being countered, and you'll probably want to give them Haste to swing in. Another auto include is Garruk's Uprising , draw on ETB, Trample for your big creatures, and draw for Hydra power ETB. I'm not the biggest fan of "Genesis Wave" effects, I see you run a few of those. Digging for creatures might draw you into X-cost creatures, they enter as 0/0 and die immediately. Happy Brewing.

When I was messing around with a deck I created, I had it sort by rarity and Eternal Witness was sorted under basic lands, even though not only is it not a land, but it was is actually uncommon

Hey, you're welcome.

If you're trying to win with a combo then having instant protection for the combo is important. Heroic Intervention and Boros Charm can protect all cards in the combo from most removal. Intervention is much more expensive price, but hexproof is even more protection. It was just reprinted in one of the new AtFR Commander precons thus it's price will most likely keep going down.

Congregation at Dawn is powerful with Eggs especially since it's an instant. Before you sac Eggs tutor for any three Dragons and put them on top of your library in any order. Old Gnawbone now makes Dawn even better since you can get Gnawbone + Hellkite Charger + any other creature. Having a creature haste enabler such as Samut, Voice of Dissent who can be cheated onto the battlefield can be helpful.

Currently you don't have any card recursion, Eternal Witness is a creature who can recur any card. Moon-Blessed Cleric is worth including because it's a creature who can tutor for Aggravated Assault or any other enchantment.

Some changes to consider:

+1 for the neat interaction between Riku and the Ravager! Fun deck concept. I'd like to offer a list of cards that seem appropriate, for your consideration.

Earthcraft , Altar of the Brood , Eternal Witness , Setessan Champion , Eidolon of Blossoms and more cards with the Opalwave combo can go off too, as the combo can cause infinite etbs and flickers of other non-aura enchantments and creatures.

Earthcraft on its own is insanely powerful, and Opalescence makes it even better, Squirrel Nest goes infinite creatures, and cards like Altar of the Brood go infinite mill with that.

There are a couple of cards I would add. Especially for a more grindy games.

Eternal Witness loops with ephemerate, with an extra flicker deck effect once per turn cycle.

Wall of Blossoms wall of omens but cheap.

Restoration angel. Having another instance speed flicker provider is always nice and it's a solid evasive body

Also if you have the budget I feel like skyclave apparition is an auto include.

HydraOoze on Omnath, Locus of Mana

Eternal Witness and Beast Within and Song of the Dryads would be good cards in here. Also Natural Order could be fun since you can sack a mana dork for a Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger on turn 4.

Urth_drgn219 Vicious Shadows is my control hate, it is a great tutor card if everyone has a scary board. I like Sarkhan Vol a lot and will get a copy eventually but I've used Xenagos, the Reveler in that role for a while and he works great. Im not the biggest fan of Vraska, Relic Seeker as she just ends up being awkward removal most games. I have Phyrexian Arena in other decks but I like Fecundity better in this deck. Eternal Witness is just a better Golgari Findbroker too. Thank you for the suggestions!
