Greenwarden of Murasa Discussion

Green/Black isn't great at protecting it's enchantments (that's kind of a White thing), but those colors are great at recursion! Cards such as Regrowth (there's a ton like this) or Eternal Witness / Greenwarden of Murasa can help there. Bonus that these cards can get back other cards as well, in case you don't need to get those enchantments back at the moment.

Isn't this backwards of how these leagues normally work? I thought the winner is the only one that doesn't get the budget bump, so the most powerful deck doesn't snowball.
Anyway, Mindwrack Harpy is the most pushed intro deck card I've ever seen. That's my first add.
I also like putting in more creatures with ETB effects. It's kind of awkward that you'll want to tap mana dorks for Hogaak. Glowspore Shaman, Golgari Thug, Crow of Dark Tidings, Gamekeeper, and Mire Triton can all help get Hogaak out by turn 3 if you have a good turn 1 play.
There are a lot of good gold cards in BG graeyard stuff, too: If you have anyone that's relying on indestructibility, Drown in Filth is a good budget option to feed your graveyard. If you're built around Hogaak, I'd think it should regularly be a hard removal spell with upside. Nyx Weaver is just a great card in any graveyard deck, and cheap, too. Jarad's Orders is a good double-tutor. Underrealm Lich is worth the $2, in my opinion. I would also ask yourself whether Eternal Witness is $3.50 better than Acolyte of Affliction/Golgari Findbroker/Treasured Find. Storrev, Devkarin Lich didn't get much fanfare, but the power and price tag are there.
Animist's Awakening is good value at just over $1. World Shaper and Splendid Reclamation are a little more expensive, but higher impact than other $4-5 cards I see in the list. Lower on the ramp ladder, note that Harrow and Springbloom Druid put a land in the yard. Funeral Rites isn't a bad draw spell for this deck. Same for Winding Way, Gather the Pack and Relentless Pursuit. Syphon Mind doesn't have much to do with the theme, but I start with it in most of my black value decks. Dark Deal could be very good, especially if your draw power is maximized and you can use your yard as a second hand. Greenwarden of Murasa is just a powerful card. Same for Phyrexian Delver.
Some other general budget cards for considering: Ransack the Lab, Corpse Churn, Dead Reckoning, Grapple with the Past, Hatchery Spider, Millikin, Mindwrack Demon, Once and Future, Splinterfright, The Mending of Dominaria, Skullwinder, Blood for Bones, and Vigor Mortis.

Maybe cut avenger because you're only running new cradle and any other way to abuse tokens? I know you mentioned in the group chat you want to win through overrun, but with a non-token, timmy, based commander, you should just win through beating face.
Why is Arcane lighthosue in the deck, what do you need to target of your opponents?
Cut Rhonas's Monument for another land, Yavimaya Hollow , a forest, or any other good utility land such as Miren, the Moaning Well . Maybe Deserted Temple to untap new cradle and nykthos? You had land issues (although I havent played against you enough to know) and monument isn't impactful enough.
Cut steel helkite for Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger , other ulamog, or World Breaker . Both are cast triggers (as you so how crucial that was against blue), worldbreaker is recurable and colorless (for those rare, relevant moments). I understand helkite's appeal but I feel having to connect and pay mana on top of having to wait a turn assuming no haste, assuming you even have enough mana afterwards.
While this is a harder cut, it depends on the meta I suppose, cut Spearbreaker Behemoth for Boundless Realms / Traverse the Outlands . Behemoth is nice, but exile, sac and bounce effects are all prevalent in the meta.
Cut Omnath, Locus of Mana for Greenwarden of Murasa ? Not sure of what to add for this cut or the following cuts.... Recursion is nice, gives you a benefit to it's death as well (synergy with miren moaning well). Other good options of recursion include Creeping Renaissance , Seasons Past or even Preator's Counsel. Omnath does nothing at all except be a mana sink. Recursion is nice to rebuild after a wipe
Cut Apex Altisaur for Terastodon - All that mana to kill 1-2 creatures? Eh. Granted Terastodon isn't much different. Like I said, these last few cuts are flexible. But I've always had a soft spot for him.
Maybe a Dryad Arbor to synergize with G-Sun?

@Savaaage, I do like the draw 4. Its really nice, and the big body with annihilator 4 is very strong. However at 10 cmc it's even harder to cast than Void Winnower (@9 cmc) and I don't think it's a better card than Void Winnower either. At 10 cmc the only card I could see taking out for it is Terastodon and that's also a really good card.
The last question you asked was if I use to run more eldrazi in the deck? I use to run 5 at the beginning. In this decks very early deck building stages I had all the low $ price tag eldrazies, and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger in the deck. I cut the eldrazies from the deck because they would just be dead in my hand for way to long. Having so many high cost cards was bad for the deck. So I cut all the ones that I thought had the lowest impact or sat in my hand way too long because of it's high cmc. Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger was the last one to get cut. And it was mostly in for its removal for why it was in the deck for so long. and it was pretty cool winning by exile of Library. But 10 cmc again was too much. I kept Void Winnower and Artisan of Kozilek because they did some really good things that mattered most to me. First Void Winnower , it creates good evasion for multani and makes it hard for your opponents to play their cards. and Artisan of Kozilek is important because it can cheat on mana cost on some very strong cards in the deck such as, Bane of Progress , Greenwarden of Murasa , Platinum Emperion , Terastodon , and Void Winnower just to name a few.
So having Eldrazi Temple in the deck prior to cutting all the eldrazi felt very important to the deck. It's much less important now, but there is only one very small draw back from playing this card and that's the interaction with Caged Sun (its not a forest). The land comes into play untapped and can tap for right away at no cost. And when I have an eldrazi it's even better. So it's no problem to throw in the deck for the chance that I can cast an eldrazi for less even if there's only 2 in the deck.

I think your top-end needs at least 1 or 2 more big spells or creatures. Bane of Progress , Woodland Bellower , Greenwarden of Murasa , Rune-Scarred Demon - all of these are good value. Your pod/yisan chains are missing top-end payoffs like these.

Very nice build! You might like these: Perilous Forays (super strong with your general! essentially allows you to pay 1 mana to ramp 1 land and deal 3 damage), Fertilid (elemental that ramps!), Retreat to Kazandu (great with Fertilid, still cool otherwise), Greenwarden of Murasa , Fierce Empath , Warstorm Surge , Budoka Gardener , Animist's Awakening , Genesis Wave , World Shaper , Splendid Reclamation , Embodiment of Insight , Nissa, Vital Force , Nissa, Worldwaker , Generator Servant

kpotrzuski: Bane of Progress has been in and out of the deck, but I am currently working on a variation that leans even more into the stax playstyle as I've noticed the more the game drags the stronger the deck performs as a whole. Currently working on putting in:

+1 Eternal Witness e wit is broken
+1 Golgari Grave-Troll this is good for flipping your deck over
+1 Life from the Loam this is also good for flipping your deck over, land destruction, but its better with fetches
+1 Scavenging Ooze to fight other graveyard shenanigans
+1 Return to Dust solid 2-for-1
+1 Bane of Progress creeping corrosion but on steroids
-1 Teneb, the Harvester pretty slow card imo but I kinda like it so idk
-1 Gods Willing you don't really care about your creatures dying
-1 Orzhov Enforcer there's better creatures you can play
-1 Sanitarium Skeleton - karador lets you recast cards anyways
-1 Culling the Weak - not a strong enough sac outlet in my opinion
