Planar Birth

Personally I'd run a token generator or blink cmdr like Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward (with your choice of background) as I like the idea of using Settle the Wreckage as a ramp spell and I think it works well with him. Basri Ket and Launch the Fleet are similar effects as Abdel.

You could also use Swords to Plowshares as a Rampant Growth.

Expedition Map to get Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Kormus Bell to turn your plains into creatures which you can now flicker more easily as well and benefit on etbs.

Tomik, Distinguished Advokist is worth considering to add to the deck if you go the Kormus Bell route as your land creatures basically have hexproof now.

Additionally you could use cards like Zuran Orb or Troubled Healer in combination with Faith's Reward/Second Sunrise/Planar Birth for extra landfall triggers. If you are running the Kormus Bell combo you could use creature sac-outlets like Altar of Dementia or Phyrexian Altar. But if the sac outlets don't play into the rest of the deck you might be better of running Oswald Fiddlebender as your cmdr to ensure you get the right combination of artifacts.

Zuran Orb also pairs well with Aetherflux Reservoir.

A roundabout and rather inefficient lands-matter removal would be Soul Sculptor + Aura Fracture.

Also can't go wrong with Sun Titan + fetch lands (i.e. Fabled Passage). If you go the flicker route you can get some great value out of this. Alternatively Sevinne's Reclamation/Crucible of Worlds also work well with fetch-lands and landfall

TLDR: Landfall-Flicker or Landfall-Recursion or combination of both.

Planar Birth after Armageddon? With Emeria Shepherd in play for some fun.

Suggestion to play Codex Shredder for self-mill and value down the line. Shred Memory and Dimir Infiltrator can also tutor up Planar Birth.

Alright I suppose these are what I'd choose to keep then- Teneb, the Harvester, Pull from Eternity, Harness Infinity, Planar Birth, Eerie Ultimatum, Sun Titan, Minion's Return, Unholy Indenture, Emeria Shepherd, Splendid Reclamation, Animate Dead, Eternal Witness, Timeless Witness, and Noxious Revival. This is if you want to lean fully into those cards that win the game.

Dread Return, Reanimate, and Reclaim are ones that I'd still try to find a spots for above the others.

freezerboy Yes I agree! Love your suggestions. Ok, about to make some changes. I do not own all the cards you and others have suggested such as Eternity Vessel, Emeria Shepherd, Planar Birth, Cleansing, and Crucible of Worlds--so I'm putting in what I have to make the deck more land focused than it already is and put in some recursion that Spell_Slam discussed with me. I also see an obvious slate of 10-11 cards that I can take out now. I will publish the update and you can provide more feedback from there if you wish! Thanks!

That does sound tough since each of those tend to take a bit of time. You could get some payoff from Cleansing and Planar Birth to massively buff Ondu Greathorn or Retreat to Emeria, allowing you to only target your basic lands. Or even target only lands with a Balancing Act.

If you're going the landfall route, which may work if you add some more options like Boreas Charger if you've sacrificed your lands or Crucible of Worlds, Oreskos Explorer, Stoic Farmer, Eternal Dragon, Timeless Dragon or anything else with plainscycling. More buffing cards like Canyon Jerboa or Felidar Retreat could help with the subtheme, and as many options with landfall like Fearless Fledgling, Prowling Felidar, Emeria Angel, and Emeria Shepherd. The Shepherd is very strong recursion, though sadly doesn't target lands.

Eternity Vessel could even give you some defense while keeping with the theme and Trove Warden looks viable as well.

All in all, with the basic land angle there are a lot of options for landfall abilities in white, so may as well make use of those for a more immediate power buff than something slow like Elspeth, Sun's Champion.

McToters that's a good one. You can also get good value out of Planar Birth if you do any land destruction or use lands as a main discard mechanic for Mageta.

Personally I do find that the "when opponent has more lands than you" mechanics can be dead abilities in the later game. It all depends on your playgroup though. I have one friend who always ramps like crazy, so I get a lot of value from those abilities.
