Landfall — Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, choose one —
- Create a 2/2 white Cat Beast creature token.
- Put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control. Those creatures gain vigilance until end of turn.

Felidar Retreat Discussion

I'm bad at card substitutions, so I'm going to toss a bunch of card suggestions at you and wish you good luck.
Gavony Township is a neat land that puts +1/+1 counters that your deck might like.
Hopeful Initiate lets you turn +1/+1 counters into removal, I dumped one into my Mikaeus, the Lunarch deck and I have high hopes for it. Same for Sigarda's Summons(but for different reasons).
Champion of Lambholt is super cool if you can get enough +1/+1 counters on her. Less blockers? Yes please.
Hamza, Guardian of Arashin seems pretty cool. Kind of like a GW Animar, Soul of Elements. I don't know if your deck has enough of a creature focus to make Hamza a good pay-off for you, but in theory it could be good.
Archangel of Thune does something very similar to your commander, but the price tag (~$21 USD) is a bit much. (and it goes infinite with Scurry Oak or Herd Baloth and an ETB lifegain card) It could be very strong in your deck.
Felidar Retreat is a lot like Retreat to Kazandu but it gives counters to everyone. Yeah, it's not the best for triggering Trelasarra's ability (unless you have an ETB lifegain out) but it could still be a viable option for your deck.
Devoted Druid is super cool in +1/+1 counter decks if you can feed it counters to cancel out the -1/-1 counters you're going to be putting on it.

Hey! I love Tajic, here are some cards to consider if you would like!
Felidar Retreat buff up that whole army and swing in with vigilance
Cathars' Crusade absolute nuts when you're dropping multiple creatures per turn
Mikaeus, the Lunarch early game value and late game bomb
Basri's Lieutenant some protection from board wipes
Let me know what you think! Hit me up if you have any questions or need some help!

Assuming you're going with a land based deck anyways landfall creatures that generate value are a fairly easy add on and with all the reprints lately everything is relatively affordable.
Scute Swarm - is one of my favorite new cards. Death by insects
Omnath, Locus of Rage - is a decent curve topper and if left alone can provide enough pressure to close out the game in most cases
Rampaging Baloths - same idea as pretty much anything else. Solid body and with 2 or 3 more land drops barring a wrath you should be closing out the game
Felidar Retreat - death by cats is always fun
Emeria Angel - death by birds
Ob Nixilis, the Fallen - death by demon
Lots of land and a Scapeshift or a Bring to Light into anything listed above will probably provide you enough value to win the game - you could also go the big mana route with Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire

The changes i saw seemed pretty good. With the change in commander (although it would have been a good idea with maja too) u might want to add a landfall package with cards that work like Makindi Ox.
There's a lifegain subtheme in ur deck with no real pay out, tho I see u have Felidar Sovereign in the maybeboard.

I'm actually thinking Felidar Retreat could work in some cases, so i'll playtest that one a bit I think. It'll be more of a sideboard option as an alternate win-con changing the deck into more of a zoo concept instead of prison, so the surprise factor could pay off.
I was trying to have a prison shell with artifacts/enchantments or creature based, as those are two different types of removal, so mainly using one of them makes more of their cards irrelevant. Since this is an enchantment, that fits the creature based mainboard into enchantment/artifact sideboard concept I have going on.

Awesome deck. While you have many ways to win it might be a good idea to have some insurance for if you need to go wide like Scute Swarm or one of the more inferior cards with a similar effect like Emeria Angel to deal with fliers, Felidar Retreat to make creatures or make existing creatures big, Retreat to Emeria same as Felidar Retreat but the boost is temporary and there is no vigilance, Tireless Provisioner can provide treasure tokens to get even faster ramp, or food tokens to survive fast burn and such.

Other than the 1-of Eternity Vessel, I don't really see what the lifegain part of this deck is meant to be doing. There's no other payoffs other than that, and it seems like it's just hurting the deck, since it's playing bad cards that happen to have lifegain. If you're not too attached to that part, I think I would try to just cut that section out and go more fully in on the landfall theme, since that's the more supported half, so the deck isn't getting pulled in too many directions.
That said, trying to be a more midrange-ish deck with the landfall theme to be able to close out the game seems like it might be alright in more casual settings. If that's the direction this deck is going to go in, you definitely need more interaction to be able to answer the opponent's plays.
Tomb Hex just seems like a bad card. Yes, it fits with the landfall theme, but even if you've triggered landfall, it's still worse than many other removal spells. I'd definitely think about switching that out. Doom Blade/Go for the Throat/Oblivion Ring are okay, but there are definitely better options. Fatal Push, Path to Exile, and Vindicate/Kaya's Guile/Damn as 1-2 ofs could be decent, as more versatile removal spells for a bit later in the game. The discard spells that Caerwyn mentioned are also great, and I'd definitely try to fit some Inquisitions in.
Soul Stair Expedition, Guul Draz Overseer, and Emeria Shepherd all seem like they might not be impactful enough in the deck, seeing as you don't have that high of an amount of creatures, and high creature counts in the deck is what all of those benefit from, Emeria/Stair to recur them, and Guul Draz to buff them, as well as the latter two being very expensive cmc-wise. As much as they do fit with the landfall theme, I think those are probably potential cuts. Felidar Retreat seems like it would be higher impact, and gives you some more cards to fit the landfall theme, you could maybe try that one? Fearless Fledgling might also be decent, and is pretty low cmc.
Also, I know you had a budget for the deck, but there's still some cheapr dual lands you could play that would fit in it. Stuff like Shineshadow Snarl or Caves of Koilos is relatively cheap, and could probably help your mana a bit.
Definitely take this with a grain of salt, as there is some subjectively in building stuff like this, and no 'correct' deck, but I think I would try going with something like this:
4x Caves of Koilos
3x Mind Stone
3x Emeria Angel
3x Night's Whisper
4x Evolving Wilds
3x Fatal Push
3x Fearless Fledgling
3x Felidar Retreat
4x Inquisition of Kozilek
2x Ob Nixilis, the Fallen
4x Path to Exile
1x Retreat to Hagra
4x Shineshadow Snarl

Hi, can I check how competitive you'd like to be? Casual tables, FNMs, Tournaments?
I've got a few landfall ideas on the back burner that you might be able to make work with this. White black will rely more heavily on supporting cards than other landfall lists as 'lands matter' hasn't been printed on many cards in those colours. Overall, I'd look at being a lot lower on the curve, playing 1/2/3 drops that affect the boad - bodies, killing creatures or similar.
Try to focus budget on lands. Especially with landfall. Evolving wilds/Terramorphic Expanse/Warped Landscape for pure budget, the more expensive fetches when you can. Shocks can let you cheat on the exact colours of the fetches. Lands are the most important part of (almost) any deck, and with landfall that is emphasised somewhat.
Steppe Lynx. Most of the other options are in other colours, but decks it is in basically just 'play 1 drops, attack, crack fetches, maybe burn'.
Knight of the White Orchid is a great body with ramp, while Loyal Warhound a solid extra 4 copies. If you can turn them on, they make 'being on the draw' games a lot better - something not a lot of cards can say. Solemn Simulacrum is good. Especially if you get it back from the graveyard.
Felidar Retreat/Retreat to emeria are incredible value engines if you can turn them on. The rest of the deck would be setting up for that and making use of it.
Unearth + graveyard matters stuff, self mill and bloodghast shenanigans.
Black has land destruction, which is almost like ramp - a deck that gets itself lots of basic lands and casts Smallpox will work.
