bloodlessdread yeah no one is really playing twiddle storm rn, I also am playing different things now. However, Ghost Quarter does nothing against Lotus Field . Blood Moon is definitely the biggest hitter, but can be dealt with.

Lots of changes in this revision:
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is out for Heliod, Sun-Crowned . Heliod will make things bigger and bigger as we gain life, which may help us with a combat win, which is all Elesh norn really did, but also can stack a ton of counters on one creature to sac to Altar of Dementia . Yay mill wins!
Cavalier of Dawn is out for Skyclave Apparition . Apparition was a great suggestion by muddbones and is more abusable than Cavalier. Lowers the cmc curve, and I am not going to miss the possible enchantment recurral. We got that covered.
Odric, Lunarch Marshal is out for Mardu Woe-Reaper . Odric helps with combat wins, but Akroma's Will does it better, and doubles as protection. I hardly ever swing for the win anyways, and the reaper is another cheap creature, and it’s ability will be triggered by ever zombie God-Eternal Oketra makes. Should keep graveyards nice and empty and help against decks that rely on them being filled. Did I mention it gains us LIFE too? Sweet card.
Return to Dust was dropped for Suture Priest . I keep going back and forth with Return... I’ll probably find another spot for it, since I’m a but light on non-creature removal anyways, but for now I wanted more Soul Warden effects. The bonus damage to opponents is nice too.
Austere Command and a Plains were dropped for Ancient Den and Flagstones of Trokair . Den is mostly for turning on Inventors' Fair to tutor out a win, and flagstones synergizes really well with Lotus Field .

Lotus Field is ramp the turn it comes out as you can tap the lands you sacrifice before you sac them, therefore instead of getting 3 mana that turn you are getting 5. It works especially well if you have Flagstones of Trokair out since that fetches a Plains when you sac it.
As for Terrain Generator my question really is why are you running so many non-basics in a mono color deck? And it still has 20 potential targets to hit. I run 22 plains in my mono-white deck and I'm getting an extra land every other turn or so when I get it.
You have 16 equipment and 6 other artifacts in a 100 card deck and you don't think Inspiring Statuary will help you when you have 42 targets it can ramp? I run one more artifact than that and every game I've played it it's been so immensely helpful for playing everything else in my deck. It basically gives me a free spell or more every turn on top of any artifacts I might play and therefore it also becomes a high priority removal target for my opponents, often saving a valuable equipment I would otherwise lose. It also can help you recover from board wipes when you have a bunch of equipments on the field doing nothing and help pay for your commander's tax when he inevitably gets removed. You really should give it a try before dismissing it.

Nearly half of my lands are Nonbasics. Terrain Generator wouldn't function properly in the early game, which is when the extra land drops matter the most.
Lotus Field isn't actual ramp. With being two lands down to play it, the additional mana it produces only fills the gap it created. I would also have to sacrifice Basics to not lose Utility Lands, which negatively affects Emeria, the Sky Ruin.
This deck isn't built for multiple attackers. As a "Go Big" strategy, I'm only going to have one maybe two creatures attacking at any given time. Any other creatures I may have are either utility creatures that mostly stay out of combat or blockers to defend against multiple opponents. Using Settle the Wreckage as a ramp effect isn't something this deck can make use of. I don't attack with three or more creatures regularly for Windbriak Heights to work.
Inspiring Statuary's inability to reduce the cost of Equipment is a major dealbreaker for me. A Mana Rock that can't be used towards a deck's primary strategy is pointless.

I see you have Sword of the Animist already. Awesome! I also use Terrain Generator and Lotus Field in my Nahiri equipment deck for additional non-artifact ramp. It works really well. I've also been known to Settle the Wreckage several of my own tokens after moving the equipment to another creature like Balan, Armory Automaton , or Heavenly Blademaster . I've gotten 6 lands before on a single turn doing this! Also, I know you said you didn't want to run rocks but so many people don't know that Inspiring Statuary is ridiculously strong in equipment decks. Basically it turns all of your equipment into mana rocks! Windbrisk Heights is also another land-based way of cheating out a high mana cost card.

Hi there! I've been playing around with 2 mono-white EDH decks for a while. You can see how I solved some of the biggest problems white has in them:
The things I see you can easily add to help for ramp are:
- Lotus Field
- Isolated Watchtower
- Terrain Generator - use extra mana you have on your opponents' end steps to drop a land before your turn
- Settle the Wreckage - this works if you can make a bunch of tokens, swing with them, then exile your own tokens to put a ton of lands into play
- Sol Ring And you already have Sword of the Animist, which is the best ramp mono-white can use tbh.
For card draw you can use these:
- Dawn of Hope - white's best draw engine
- Skullclamp - Clamp your tokens to draw two
- Sram, Senior Edificer - You're a bit light on Artifacts and Enchantments to get full use out of him but he's still pretty great if you need a draw engine and white does pretty good at protecting its creatures
- Endless Atlas
- Seer's Sundial
- Well of Lost Dreams
- Alhammarret's Archive
- Staff of Nin

Lotus Field 's sacrifice ability will trigger even if it is put onto the battlefield by an effect other than playing a land. You can put it onto the battlefield with Elvish Reclaimer , but you will end up sacrificing a total of three lands. One to the Reclaimer's ability and 2 to the ETB.

I_Want_To_PlayAllTheDecks that's true, but I'm not playing a deck that only uses filter lands. I'm using these filter lands as a last resort to playing cards, which thereof 8 of my lnads are useful for any 2 colors that are different or the same, and since 4 of them are only one use, I can use them to pay for things like Arboreal Grazer or Elvish Reclaimer . Yes, I know that it will be very difficult to play Diabolic Tutor with my manabase, and if i really have to, I'll pay 2 mana for 1 colored mana. I plan on using these cards for Lotus Field , so that's the point.
