Profet93 Actually still in heavy prototyping. I started rebuilding the deck from scratch yesterday. Sorry in advance for the mess, putting together a bunch of the pieces again today.

I feel like my play group give me too much time to setup and there is not much in the way of heavy control around besides the occasional counter spell or Ghostly Prison. I will be honest, might even give me enough time to pull off a Helix Pinnacle.

Only reason I'm not running Mana Crypt, is I don't have one. I'm actually trying to acquire it. For the sake of building, accepted.

Genesis Wave is defiantly going into the deck

Horn of Greed Feels too powerful to cut, it's going back. You caught me in the middle of a full deck rebuild. It's not leaving :)

Deserted Temple is a good suggestion, accepted

Torn between Boundless Realms and Scapeshift. I want to run atleast one of them.

Sensei's Divining Top is a good suggestion, from my testing it feels a lot better than Sylvan Library. Tempted to put sylvan library on the potential cut list later.

Missed Fabled Passage! Thank you!

Ulvenwald Hydra feels good in the playground right now as a tutor for gaea's cradle or any other land I will be adding to the deck. In addition to that at any time there is a lot of flyers at my table. Tempted to keep him unless I can come to a better quick solution for flying like Whiptongue Hydra. Not sure yet honestly.

Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth will be needed, still sorting out the land base!

I noticed you're using mostly basic lands. Any particular reason for that? Moreover, do you need Yaviamaya, cradle of growth given your large amount of basics? I feel it's slight benefit of allowing your few non-basics to tap for green is outweighed by the potential of mana fixing the opponent.

I love fetches in Azusa, even Fabled Passage, as they give us a greater chance to utilize crucible effects. I take it, it's a tad too slow here? Even given your update stating how shuffling effects are crucial?

Moreover, if you love shuffling, how about Sensei's Divining Top? Since you run cradle, is there a reason there is no Mana Crypt, aside from Bane of Progress?

Like most Azusa decks, your primary strategy seems to be T&N into Avenger + Regal. But if they counter the T&N, given you run no Boseju, or stifle the ETB effects of either, you're SOL. Somewhat fringe and meta dependent scenario, I understand, but something to consider. I mention this as you only have 7 cards that draw you cards (including the cards that allow top deck land plays). Perhaps a Harmonize or some other cards listed like Boundless Realms (while not draw, thinning your deck dramatically is very very helpful, given a deck with primary basics)

You stated in your update: From the information given above, then it is in our best interest to figure out when the deck runs away with the game and to amplify that scenario. It seems that dropping.... Horn of Greed - You even mention that you always pull out ahead. It seems like you cut cards that help you win and you then cut those same cards as when you are in that winning position, they don't advance your position further. But without some of those cards, it becomes more difficult to get to that winning position in the first place.

Discussing draw further, green draws through either token swarm or creature power. You have Avenger + Scute for tokens and (up to) 6 creatures that have high power, biggest only namely Ulvenwald, which I don't understand in this build given you are utilizing primarily basics. If Ulvenwald's purpose is to tutor lands, why not get another land tutor such as sylvan scrying, nylea's intervention or many others?

Genesis Wave - With only 5 instants/sorcerries, why isn't this here? You don't need to dump your whole deck if not needed given you have no haste outlet like Akroma's or Concordant. I find it a very powerful value card. Or is it not added because you might draw yourself to death with Regal Force + Scute Swarm/Avenger?

Deserted Temple - For cradle (and politics)

I could be wrong as you know your deck best and how it functions. I would love to hear what you think of each suggestion

I picked up a Horn of Greed and need to cut one card to fit it in.

brandonplaysmagic Thanks, man!

I have not thought about Tireless Tracker at all, so thanks for pointing that out. I agree with what you have to say here, and this might actually work out better than the Guardian Project I've been thinking about.

I find that Multani's inherent Shroud keeps him out of trouble (except for the likes of Cyclonic Rift/board wipes), so Asceticism wouldn't help (Multani can't even be targeted for regeneration).

I had Horn of Greed on my original setup, which run Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Howling Mine, Temple Bell, Crucible of Worlds, Exploration, Oracle of Mul Daya, etc. but I found that this deck's strength comes from drawing a sick amount of cards in one burst and then having a ton of mana to cast as much as possible. Even without this group-hug drawing package, already in a 3-player table, Multani is drawing a sick amount of cards, so instead I opted for ramp to drop him faster.

Thanks for your feedback and suggestions. Funny you mentioned the card-drawing as this is what I am currently working on .

Great deck! More mono-green, the better!

I’ve found that I always want to find space for Tireless Tracker in everything I’ve got green in, just because stalling out due to lack of card draw is a huge thing mid game.

Since you’re trying to drop Multani out super early, some protection from Asceticism or Dense Foliage may be super helpful.

Since Multani relies so heavily on everyone’s hand size, something like a Horn of Greed (although benefiting your opponents) helps keep you AND their hands full. Might be interesting if you’re willing to try it out. Again, super cool idea here!

Thank you brandonplaysmagic! Ashaya, Soul of the Wild and Horn of Greed sound like interesting additions, I'll definitely look into them. I did run Stone-Seeder Hierophant for a while before, but I opted to cut it to lower my mana curve a bit (which I still have some ways to go haha).

What a fun deck!! I think landfall is a really fun strategy to play. I have an Ashaya, Soul of the Wild deck that runs similarly. Ashaya is a great addition to any landfall deck as it helps any creature drops into a landfall trigger. Stone-Seeder Hierophant is a favorite budget card of mine for landfall decks, as well as Horn of Greed to get extra value. Looks fun!
