Flagellum on Steep Price to Pay (Dina, Soul Steeper)

Powerleech : would be great

Quiet Disrepair , Retreat to Hagra , Retreat to Kazandu , Jaddi Offshoot , Grazing Gladehart , Kazandu Nectarpot , Lifegift : Landfall and upkeep triggers. Run a land ramp package thanks to green to capitalize on these effects. Very budget friendly options

Zuran Orb / Dark Heart of the Wood : Eat the lands you accrued through the game. Throw in Splendid Reclamation for lolz and sac them all again

Hey! I think that this deck should use Miren, the Moaning Well . It's a way of regaining life with a creature that will die because of some effect. It makes you gain a lot of life and increases the effect of Willowdusk's ability.

About the untap effects outside of blue, you can use Thousand-Year Elixir or Magewright's Stone . About combos... well, if you use sacrifice effects (e.g. Ashnod's Altar ), you could try the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion -like combos (actually, these two work alone, but some combos needs a sac outlet). Depending of other cards, loops with Mikaeus, sacrifice outlets and creatures with Persist could also work.

An artifact like Eternity Vessel can reset your life (if I remember well, having your life total become some value counts as lifegain).

Maybe creatures like Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper or Reyhan, Last of the Abzan works well inside this deck. As instants or sorceries... the only one that came to my mind now is Weather the Storm , which can be very interesting in some situations.

Why use cards like Jaddi Offshoot (gains you only one life), Dash Hopes (I think that's an unreliable counterspell and the 5 life is a low cost in EDH), Blunt the Assault (I think that this card is pretty bad, maybe a card like Gray Merchant of Asphodel gains you much more life while drains your opponents) or Lifegift (it won't make you gain a lot of life on the same turn)?

Roots of Life - What's the point of this exactly, how does lifegain help you in a more competitive meta? Its nice with urborg, perhaps I'm missing something? Same question with Lifegift.

Seedborn Muse > Wilderness Reclamation? - Is the 1 mana more a deterrent or the fact that its blown up as a creature? I like how you can tutor for it since it's a creature

Tempt with Discovery - One of my favs but in a more competitive meta, don't they usually just strip mine whatever you tutor for?

How does Gravediggers cage and G-wave interact? Do you get the creatures from G-Wave or not? I know it's anti-synergy with Finale, but some of that is expected in a stax build.

Have you considered adding more interaction in the form of Kenrith's Transformation? It replaces itself, is cheap and shuts down commanders who cant interact with enchantments.

Nylea's Intervention - Not that you need even more anti-flying, but the land tutoring is nice. X=2-3 is a good mode and is fairly costed IMO. Helps you turn of field of the dead more consistently.

Replacing 8 forests with 8 snow-covered forests helps field of the dead turn online more quickly as well.

Courser of Kruphix instead of Lifegift?

Also, Tectonic Reformation is useful too.

...and yes, bouncing all creatures puts your awakened lands back in your hand. Nice if you didn’t need them as lands though; discard with Windgrace.

I see your point about Liege of the Tangle. For example if someone plays a card with "return all creatures to hand", these land creatures would go to my hand (correct me if I'm wrong on that). I had paired Liege of the Tangle and Embodiment of Insight and since there are often board wipes in my groups meta I will probably eliminate these two cards.

As for Titania, Protector of Argoth, I have seen this card before and think it would do really well in this deck. This would be a great addition.

While the lands you suggested would pair really well with Titania, I'm not too keen on the pay one life part of the cost. There are a few decks in our meta that tick life totals quite a bit and this wouldn't help out with that. If I would add these lands it might be worth having Lifegift, I'm just not sure what to take out for them.

As for cards to take out, I know that Thantis, the Warweaver and Gyrus, walker of corpses don't do much for the landfall theme, so I was planning on taking them out. Also on this list were Bloodtracker, Worm Harvest and Soul of Innistrad.

I really just put in Etali, Primal Storm for the effect and the heavy hitting, I know he doesn't fit the landfall theme. He may be taken out for a different deck tho.

Thank you so much for the advice I really appreciate it!!

This mono green EDH deck is well out of date and I could use some help updating it to not only be legal but competitive

I feel like the base of the deck is still pretty strong and it only needs a few minor updates here and there, so any and all inputs would be greatly appreciate.

Asus, lost but seeking
