Put two target lands on top of their owner's library.
Plow Under Discussion

LiKWiDCAKE it's not so much for when I know what's on top, but rather it helps to prevent control strategies from further messing with my hand/deck.
Example: I have plenty of lands, and my opponent decides to Primal Command or Plow Under to force me to draw land, or has JtMS and Fateseals me, keeping the card on top. I can undo it by shuffling on command with mad-blind. Also, it counts as a mountain, which triggers Valakut, so why not?

I would look at Plow Under and Jace, the Mind Sculptor if you can afford that guy. Plow is just highly underrated, not only does it remove 2 lands from the game but denies them the next 2 draws without manipulation (shuffle, scry, or draw). The issule you'll find with a strat like this is that once you run out of copies of Eye of Nowhere , Boomerang , Plow Under if you don't have something threatening in play you will die. at the local shop back in 8th standard we told each other if you get plow'd twice, you lose but that was a long time ago and in a different format. Remand would be great here with the LD package. Almost like a Time Walk because they would tap out for nothing and you draw a card. Things like this is why I would like to see Jace here. his -1 ability bounces the threats you miss while staying on the field, lets you dig, fate seal away their lands or playable spells. He's just solid. You could also look at Tamiyo, the Moon Sage as a U version of Ajani Vengeant that once you hit ultimate lets you have unlimited counters like we did in standard with any counter that exiles but theres always Crackling Drake .

You need to play cards that punish control players. Ruric Thar is a good example. Also cards that protect you against counter spells like Vexing Shusher . Cards that increase cost of spells like Sphere of Resistance , Defense Grid , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Thorn of Amethyst .
As you can see I know alot of anti control cards. That's because my playgroup is ridden with filthy control players. We're good friends but they just love to play some sort of control.

Ah so the dream would be landhate in modern. I didn't really explain much in the description as I didn't expect anyone to see this. It's a concept for now. The Plow Under is quite evil as it can basically Time Walk someone when played at the right moment. (Either they lose 2 lands or they don't draw any gas for 2 turns)

Selvala is an interesting general and your list looks fun. A few suggestions to consider:

I feel like some tempo creatures might be best here- cards like Spell Queller or similar form a potent lock when you can lock out lands with constable.
I really like that constable doesn't say 'nonland'. Leaves a lot of oppertunity for shenanigans... I smell an U/G Plow Under brew coming on.

There are some interesting tools in the monogreen enchantment toolbox- Asceticism is undoubtably my favourite, but you might like Bow of Nylea Crop Sigil, Rancor, Cream of the Crop, Wreath of Geists, Oath of the Ancient Wood,
I reccomend focussing a little on ramping into higher cost cards- 5 drops are a lot less expensive money-wise than 4 drops in modern, and a lot of them are game changing- a well placed Plow Under or Primal Command, stacking up a Gigantiform, Gutter Grime, Lost in the Woods etc.
