Anyways with that whole kickstarter thing going on I noticed that the professor hasn't made a video so in case anyone was wondering
Some regular guys non-foil/foil
Void Winnower - 16.07/20.46
Vengevine - 10.71/12.95
Collector Ouphe - 5.63/33.07
Goblin Settler - 48.71/N/a
Non foil: 81.12 Foil: 115.19
Foil: B / non-foil: C+
There's a good bit of value with this secret lair. Goblin settlers getting its' first foil printing is definitely noteworthy. Also, if you're into the Adventure Time art style you'll like be picking this up anyways.
Showcase: Streets of New Capenna
Atraxa, Praetors' Voice - 30.77/35.53
Breya, Etherium Shaper - 7.98/9.84
Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder - N/A/8.84
Non-foil: 47.59 foil: 54.21
Non-foil - D foil: C-
This grade pains me because I REALLY think the art on these is beautiful and they'll likely include a Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis in the same style as a bonus card but putting personal preferance and speculation aside the value just is not here.
Special Guest: Matt Jukes Foil Edition
Glacial Fortress - 3.71/11.25
Drowned Catacomb - 7.28/17.46
Dragonskull Summit - 3.79/6.96
Rootbound Crag - 3.81/6.55
Sunpetal Grove - 3.89/5.96
Non-foil: 22.48 foil: 48.18
Non-foil - F foil - D-
The value in these really speaks for itself.

Mother of Runes - 4.91/Varies
Death's Shadow - 6.12/10.19
Elvish Mystic - .45/9.97
Forest - N/A
Non-foil - 11.48 Foil: N/A
Non-foil - F Foil - D-
The biggest thing out of this lair is the foil Mother of Runes the prices fluctuates so much with the older foils it's hard to set an exact price to obtain a foil one; if we look at the previous secret lairs those versions of Mother of Runes are sitting at about 6-10 a piece.
Artist Series: Sidharth Chaturvedi
Concordant Crossroads - 46.87/N/A
Nomad Outpost - 1.06/5.74
Ghost Quarter - 1.12/16.90
Island - N/A
Non-foil: 49.05 foil: 69.51
Non-foil: D- foil: C
Essentially this lair is being carried by the fact that Concordant Crossroads only has 1 printing and has never had a foil printing. If you need one or would like to get a foil one knows your chance but outside of that its just some bulky cards with nice art.
Artist Series: Wayne Reynolds
Sram, Senior Edificer - .25/6.09
Torbran, Thane of Red Fell - .95/1.89
Depala, Pilot Exemplar - .23/1.65
Balthor the Defiled - 10.95/59.61
Non-foil: 12.38 Foil: 69.24
Non-foil - F Foil - C
This lair is also being carried by 1 card that has only 1 printing the rest is bulk.
Finally! Left-Handed Magic Cards
Sisay, Weatherlight Captain - .98/6.02
Empress Galina - 18.31/206.82
Geralf's Messenger - 9.89/34.48
Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh - .26/.41
Garruk, Caller of Beasts - 8.20/23.41
Non-foil: 37.64 foil; 271.14
Non-foil - C Foil: A
While Empress Galina is definitely the chase card out of this; it still has value in the other slots too outside of Roger - but even Roger is still highly playable.
Anyways, after doing all the math and putting this all together I appreciate the professor doing this and compiling it a video format. Also, which secret lairs if any are you planning to get?

This is GREAT. I love it! I would recommend End-Raze Forerunners for big creatures with great abilities. Also Worldspine Wurm is my personal favourite great green beastie and is really fun to get out for free. But he recently went up in price ugh.
As for getting creatures for free, check out Quicksilver Amulet : it's also a little pricey, but a staple for a lot of my big stompy budget decks. In Search of Greatness is good for increasingly bigger boys. Court of Bounty is lovely for extra land drops or creature drops, in addition to extra card draw in green. And with your big board, I doubt people would be able to take the crown from you easily.
One last thing: Garruk, Caller of Beasts can fetch your creatures with his +1 and put them out for free with his -3. But he is actually more expensive than I remember him being. :/
All that said, great deck. Green is the best colour.

I might end up putting Garruk, Caller of Beasts into my cube. Never knew this version of him existed!

One of my building conditions for a deck is that I have leastwise one Planeswalker. One that has continually impressed me is Ajani Unyielding. In Enchantress-style decks, or ones with few instants and sorceries, it often draws two or more cards each turn. The high loyalty and removal make for it to be difficult to kill.
Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer also protects herself quite well whiles bearing a game-winning ultimate. Making a 4/4 flying helps as well.
Vivien, Champion of the Wilds is another fantastic card. The instant speed is great in all matchups and, in the worst-case scenario, she cycles.
Lastly, and rather similar to Ajani, is Garruk, Caller of Beasts. In creature decks, he draws a whole lot of cards, flooding the board the very next turn. This card is great, and I am surprised people do not have it in more strategies. (I love it in Elves.)

I agree that the +1 should not have Fight attached OR it should be a minus ability.
The -4 is incredibly weak. Compare it to Garruk, Caller of Beasts who reveals top 5 and puts ALL creatures revealed into your hand. And that's a +1 ability... He is also 6 CMC but this one is 3 colors against Garruk's green.
What if you turned the two abilities around?

Legendary Planeswalker - Garruk & Huatli
+2: Look at the top five cards of your library. You may reveal a land card or a creature card from among them and put it into your hand. Then put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.
-1: Choose one:
- Create a 3/3 green Dinosaur Beast creature token with Trample.
- Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature you control.
Then you may have that creature fight target creature you don't control.
-8: You get an emblem with "Whenever you cast a creature spell, copy it twice." (A copy of a permanent spell becomes a token.)
The card advantage ability is now only one card per activation, to accommodate it being a +2 and due to the fact that the -1 ability is still very very powerful.
The -1 now has two modes: We create a body that can fight, or we strengthen a body to fight. Initially I had the -1 as "put two +1/+1 counters on target creature" but I figured with the rest of the kit, it would be too strong. It would also make the point of creating a new body less appealing except as a body when none was available.
It could be considered to have the last line read: "Then you may have any number of creatures you control Fight target creature you don't control."
Thus a pile on solution could be beneficial, but it costs you some bodies, as each creature fighting takes the same amount of damage - unlike say an upside down Living Inferno.
For purely removal, it makes the most sense to make a new 3/3 as that is +3 damage. However it will also most likely cost you those creatures if the Fight target has 3+ power.
For sustain you'd want the +1/+1 counter to make the creature survive the Fight.
The ultimate is reworded slightly to take advantage of the new wording from Lithoform Engine where copies of permanent spells becomes tokens. This makes the copy portion use the stack and makes it possible to counter spell the tokens or in any way manipulate those copies while they are on the stack. Additionally they enter the battlefield one at a time, instead of the two tokens simultaneously. The current wording is a triggered ability where the tokens bypasses the stack, except for a Stifle (which could also be used to counter both the copies under the new wording I think).
