some inexpensive board wipes include Fated Retribution , Akroma's Vengeance , End Hostilities , Hallowed Burial , Phyrexian Rebirth , Rout , and Solar Tide .

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is another way to turn opponent's lands into creatures. as is Quirion Druid and Verdant Touch

As for enabling your frostwaker there is Fyndhorn Brownie , Magewright's Stone , Niblis of the Breath , Puppeteer , and Puppet Strings . some of those are bound to be inexpensive, and adding in a handful of boardwipes and enablers for that strategy would lend itself to doing that strategy more often.

Looks neat!

Are you using Garza Zol, Plague Queen for any reason? The new legendary Inalla, Archmage Ritualist is pretty easy to get right now, and taps for effects(and lets you get copies of Trinket Mage and Inspired Sprite to get more draws/artifact search.) Praetor's Grasp is always an amazing card to find something in an opponents deck.

Since you have a combo you want to get out, you might like cards like Whir of Invention, Artificer's Intuition, the more expensive Fabricate to get paradise out, and for getting the Freed from the Real try Drift of Phantasms and Dimir Machinations. You can also run the other transmute's like Dizzy Spell or Clutch of the Undercity etc. to find other things in your deck too.

Racecourse Fury is not especially high on the threat list, so you can have essentially free haste-enable on the cheap.Quicksilver Dagger enables tap+damage+draw a card for cheap. Unscythe, Killer of Kings is a silly card that might find a place.Hematite Talisman and Lapis Lazuli Talisman let you untap other creatures to boot.

I'd lose some of the instant/one-off untaps- they're cheap but only good for one motion, whereas you want to be doing it over and over again. Same with ETB like Breaching Hippocamp. Chain Stasis is fun because you could pay 2 to do it again on another creature, making it 2 - trigger inspired. Tidal Bore can let you get out an extra untap or tap when you're strapped for mana.

Niblis of the Breath and Puppeteer are really good(and are 3-drops for things like phantasm and machination searches), as are Stonybrook Angler.

Thassa's Ire isn't the most mana-effective option but it's a one-drop that lets you do it over and over again as long as you have mana. You also may want something like Fortuitous Find to bring back things. Recurr is always good! :D

I think you should run a few ways to untap Merieke, like Fatestitcher, Unbender Tine or Puppeteer

If you are willing to put abit of blue in there, you can use Freed from the Real for infinite mana turn 3.

How to do this. Turn 1 Hada Free blade. Turn 2 Harabaz Druid. Turn 3 put Freed from the Real on Harabaz Druid.

Now you can tap Harabaz Druid for 2 blue mana, use 1 of the blue to untap Harabaz with Freed from the Real adding 1 blue to your mana pool each time you do this. Add as much blue mana as you need, then you are free to tap Harabaz for whatever colour you want using the stored blue mana to keep untapping it.

Other cards you could add to make this more worthwhile are, Puppeteer and Sea Gate Loremaster , it is a little bit slower you will need 1 more ally in play so Harabaz Druid can tap for 3, but put Freed from the Real on Puppeteer instead, and with Seagate Loremaster in play you can draw your deck using infinite mana and Puppeteer to keep untapping Seagate Loremaster. So you can effectively play your deck on turn 4. Chuck some Chasm Guide in there to give your allies haste and swing.

Sorry for the long winded message but I hope this helps :)

Mind over matter is a good option. A gatherer search pulled up some other random things Puppeteer Kiora, Master of the Depths Kiora's Follower and Pemmin's Aura are all other reasonable ways to get untap effects.

If the goal is to protect krenko, then wouldn't you want more counters vs. fewer?
