Just made some updates Multani, Yavimay's Avatar - The Land is Angry.
Would like some feedback on recent changes. Also wondering if there is a place for Ghalta, Primal Hunger . Seems like a nice pairing with Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar . If I were to bring Ghalta in, what do I pull?

Hey Joe it's Owen! I helped my buddy Ryan build a Windgrace deck a few weeks ago and it reminded me to take a look at your list and throw some suggestions your way (up to you if you want to heed them, of course).
So one of the first things I see when I look at your list is that you're missing one of the key things to Windgrace's land recursion ability: utility lands. Strip Mine and Glacial Chasm are huge stars in the deck since you're able to bring them back to field with either Life from the Loam or Windgrace's -3 ability. Paired with Wayward Swordtooth and other effects ( Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Oracle of Mul Daya , Exploration ), you can use strip mine to blow up 7 or more opponent's lands per turn. This puts you at a tremendous mana advantage and lets you eliminate pesky things like Tyler's Maze of Ith (a card you could run in here as well to prevent Windgrace from dying) or Lotus Vale (another card you could run since you'll just get the sacrificed lands back).
I would like to point out that Glacial Chasm is even better. This land prevents you from taking any damage. You have to pay (cumulatively) 2 life in your upkeep but instead you could sacrifice it in upkeep and then bring it back to field with Windgrace or Ramunap Excavator or Crucible of Worlds . By the way, Crucible of Worlds would be very good to run here.
It's great that you have The Gitrog Monster in here, because this is basically the Lieutenant of any Windgrace deck. You should run Dakmor Salvage here, as well, since you can dredge that land when it's in your graveyard (dredge meaning instead of drawing you can put that card from your graveyard to your hand and then mill however much). Dakmor Salvage has dredge 2, so lets say that in upkeep you have to sacrifice a land to the Gitrog Monster. You choose to sacrifice Dakmor Salvage, which hits the graveyard and thus triggers the Gitrog Monster to draw you a card. Instead of drawing, you then choose to dredge Dakmor Salvage and return it to your hand to mill 3. If you mill 3 lands off the top of your deck, you get 3 more Gitrog triggers to draw cards. This is incredibly useful for drawing through your deck and getting to your win conditions. Paired with a discard outlet such as Borborygmos Enraged or Noose Constrictor you can actually draw your entire deck (or in the case of Borborygmos, draw your entire deck and then kill everyone with it). Either way, Dakmor Salvage is an incredible piece that you should run in here and is only like $2.
Also, have you ever noticed how you create giant creatures like Multani and Zendikar Incarnate in here but someone always has ways to block them or Maze of Ith to prevent combat damage? Say goodbye to those days if you pick up Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord . Instead of being forced to swing out one at a time with your big creatures, you can activate Jarad and sacrifice Multani to him, causing each opponent to lose life equal to Multani's power (which tends to be big). The great thing here is that you can just replay Multani from the graveyard! And if you mill Jarad, he has an ability that lets you play him from the graveyard, as well! So the more you mill with cards like Dakmor Salvage, the closer you could get to assembling this kind of a win condition. Note here that Lord of Extinction is another great card you can use to sacrifice to Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord since its power/toughness will be equal to ALL cards in ALL graveyards. This creature tends to be bigger than 40/40 in a windgrace deck, so count on killing every opponent at once with one Jarad activation with this creature. Speaking of big creatures and dredge, Golgari Grave-Troll is another great card to run in here.
Lastly, you wanna make sure that out of your 99 cards you get exactly what you want in your graveyard. There's some cards that can do that for you. Entomb and Buried Alive allow you to fetch Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar , Dakmor Salvage , Life from the Loam , etc. and put that into the graveyard. Expedition Map and Scapeshift allow you to get the exact lands that you want (scapeshift gives hella landfall triggers for your creatures), and Animate Dead and Necromancy can allow you to pull your creatures back out of the graveyard when you need them.
Again, these cards are just some suggestions. But you've been playing Windgrace for a while now and I thought I'd toss this info your way! Love the look of the new Orzhov deck and how interactive it is. See ya thursday!

Hey, Jund Panorama and Naya Panorama are budget fetch lands. Game Trail and Sheltered Thicket are budget Gruul duals lands. Fierce Empath can tutor for Avenger or Baloths or any other 6 CMC or higher creature. Signal the Clans is an instant tutor to search for three different creatures and put one of them randomly into your hand.
Mina and Denn, Wildborn gives you another land drop per turn and it's a landfall enabler. Budoka Gardener / Dokai, Weaver of Life and Walking Atlas let you put a land from your hand onto the battlefield. Skyshroud Claim , Farhaven Elf and Wood Elves are upgrades for land ramp. Smokebraider can help to ramp into Omnath, Avenger or other Elementals.
Beast Within , Nature's Claim , Hull Breach and Decimate are upgrades for removal spells. Greater Good is a draw engine and sac outlet for Elementals. Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar is a upgrade for finisher creature and he's an Elemental. Bane of Bala Ged is an underrated budget big creature; it's excellent with haste. Rhythm of the Wild is more haste and protects your creatures from being countered.
Good luck with your deck.

I guess I'm a little confused as to what you're trying to do with the deck. Are you trying to play Standard Bogles with Vine Mare / Carnage Tyrant and Blanchwood Armor ? Or are you trying to play a lands deck focused around Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar ? It seems more like your deck is closer to the first one, so I would remove the Ghastbark Twins for another copy of Growth-Chamber Guardian , and then I would make room by removing the Multani and something else to make room for a couple forests as well as maybe a few copies of Jadelight Ranger . I do feel like 22 lands is too few since the only ramp you really have in this deck is Llanowar, 24-25 would probably be a better number to make sure you're curving out with your strong creatures, as well as powering up Armor.

I've been on a bit of a mono-color commander kick and after working through a janky living land deck build that wasn't working, I decided to shift to a Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar build since what I was had been putting together could support a lot of the same card base.
The most basic concept is facilitate flooding more land on the board or into the graveyard to build up Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar and still have enough support to include some other wincons when the inevitable happens to Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar .
I really need to assess the fetch mechanic volume here and see if I overdid it. There is some other general utility that I could definitely include such as Seer's Sundial , All Is Dust , Thaumatic Compass Flip, Rhonas's Monument or Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip.
I look forward to suggestions anyone might have. I've got a large list of excludes on the description and I wonder if any really should be in the deck in favor of something else.

Looks like a pretty good start. Tatyova seems like she would be a fun commander to build around.
Have you thought about adding Sakura-Tribe Elder , Wood Elves or Farhaven Elf as creature ramp? They all put a land onto the battlefield, and can trigger Tatyova and any Landfall triggers you have out.
As far as win-cons, both Avenger of Zendikar and Liege of the Tangle can take advantage of all the land you will more than likely have. Creatures like Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar , Ulvenwald Hydra and Oran-Rief Hydra all get bigger the more lands you have.
Hope that helps!
