Ilysian Caryatid

Creature — Plant

: Add one mana of any colour. If you control a creature with power 4 or greater, add two mana of any one colour instead.

I like the idea, it seems very solid. I might create a similar version, but I'll probably change a few cards, I'm afraid it looses his gas in long matches.

May I suggest Ilysian Caryatid, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Nyxbloom Ancient and Ashaya, Soul of the Wild is trully a must pick for this list, seems like a fit.

Genesis Wave is better than it looks tho. Beastmaster Ascension can be very bad, but if played at the right moment, has potention to make some noise. Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon can make things hard for at least 2 opponents if I may say, depends on your playgroup. An hey, Kessig Wolf Run can really cause some pain.

Talking about big creatures, I'll suggest Apex Devastator. It's guaranteed you'll at least drop 4 spells with him due to the mana curve we have here.

But, again, it's just suggestions, your list looks hella fun to play!

I always loved Trelissara's design. Sadly, my lifegain deck is Esper, so she didn't really fit! I don't know if this helps at all, but I think of my deck in terms of lifegain enablers (our Soul Warden and friends that gain us life) and payoffs (things that benefit us when we gain life, like Trudge Garden).

I would pay special attention to one thing with life gain payoffs: a lot of the cards care about one of 2 things...either 'instance of life gain' (the ones worded 'whenever'...they do not care how much life you gain, just if you do or not), and the ones that care about quantity (the ones worded 'if you gained X or more life).

You're going to want to sculpt your life gain enablers in the deck around what of those you have, and how much life gain they want you to have in a turn, to make sure they can hit your X.

I would consider that a little more next time you play, pay attention to what cards want what effects.

For example, my deck is built entirely around the 'instance of life gain effects', so I seldom need to worry about how much I gain.

That said, some weak spots I noticed: Benevolent Bodyguard, Ilysian Caryatid, Soulmender, From Beyond, Indomitable Might, Hedgewitch's Mask. These are excellent places to start with upgrades! They're not bad on their own, but we can do better!

Note on Aetherflux Reservoir: There are some playgroups that playing this will just get you ganged up on. I always caution people about that. If that's fine with you, it's a strong card. I didn't find it could gain enough life to make it worth it in my deck.

Some possible (not too expensive) upgrades that I enjoy:

Good in an 'instance of life gain' deck: Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Sunscorch Regent, Suture Priest, Gideon's Company, Twinblade Paladin, Omen of the Sun, Ajani's Pridemate, Oketra's Monument, Regna, the Redeemer

Good in a 'gain X or more life' deck: Nykthos Paragon, Gideon Blackblade

Good in both: Dusk / Dawn, Austere Command, Dawn of Hope, Shamanic Revelation

You're propably aware that this pretty slow, but I stll like what you did here. Some cards you could consider are those:

Ilysian Caryatid as great ramp that even scales once you have your first baloth out.

Grow from the Ashes might actually be better than Cultivate as it can get you two land drops once you're at five mana.

Mwonvuli Acid-Moss is just insane. It slows down your opponents and ramps you.

Also, Terramorphic Expanse or Evolving Wilds are terrific with your landfall triggers.

Update! Pulling too many high cmc cards early game. Also, the deck played like it needed a 1-3 cmc creature that had a 5 in power, that could lower the cost of The Great Henge enough to be an optional play turn 4. So, ADDED Jaspera Sentinel +1 Lovestruck Beast +4 REPLACED Iymrith, Desert Doom -2 Ilysian Caryatid -3.

Went 10-1 in mtg arena platinum 3 hrs before posting this.

Sorin_Markov_1947 I could definitely see add 4 x Sultai triome to splash blue. It's fun to think about dropping Teferi with 6 starting loyalty, but that's probably not necessary.

I actually really like Ilysian Caryatid . consider Garruk, Unleashed makes it very easy to get that second mana out of him. I do run into awkward turn 3's though, so perhaps I should tinker with some more Cultivate

Binding the Old Gods definitely seems like it belongs in here though.
