Radha, Heart of Keld
Legendary Creature — Elf Warrior
As long as it's your turn, Radha, Heart of Keld has first strike.
You may look at the top card of your library at any time, and you play lands from the top of your library.
: Radha gets +X/+X until end of turn, where X is the number of lands you control.

Radha, Heart of Keld Discussion

The new Radha, Heart of Keld is another way at looking at your own topdeck, although IMO I don't really think those kind of effects actually matter to the lantern control concept unless symmetrical topdeck manipulation is involved
IMO I'm not very hopeful of lantern control ever really becoming a thing in EDH since I think it needs more support, and since WotC considers fateseal a failure I doubt they're going to explore that design space in the future

Thanks for the feedback!
Most opponents will drop an attack on Kiora but she has 7 starting Loyalty, so you will still likely get some use out of her.
Turn 4, you should be able to drop a Strength 4 critter, which boosts the Caryatid to 2 mana. That Caryatid plus Kiora, gives you 4 mana. So with an ideal mana curve, you should have 8 mana on turn 4.
Track Down works very well to ensure your on target for your turn 4 uprising.
Klothys is just an excellent card in this deck: it strips out graveyard cards, gives a nice 2 life exchange and between Garruk's Harbinger, Proud Wildbonder and Quartzwood Crasher, you should have no problem ramping up devotion to Klothys, to get her active.
I'm proud of this deck because it's relatively competitive while being fun and bucking the trend.

Taking a look at this build as per request. The most obvious way I can see to immediately improve the deck according to your restrictions is to remove 4 basic lands and add a playset of Stomping Ground. It’s exactly at your budget threshold per card, but that’s the fastest and easiest way to elevate this deck’s consistency and performance.
Aside from that, it looks like you’ve got nice ramp from your elveses...es, and some decent heavy hitters and enablers like Titanoth Rex. What I see lacking is removal. Shock works alright in the early game to snipe small fodder, but perhaps you could find room in the sideboard to slot in some artifact hate. Red is excellent at that.
Incidentally, don’t make the same mistake I made when looking at Radha, Heart of Keld or similarly worded cards. Just because it allows you to play lands from the top of your library doesn’t mean you can get around the one-land-per-turn rule. I had a misunderstanding of that concept and was enlightened by onlookers at my LGS.

Hey jwong14 and Balaam__ I could use advice on another deck I'm building. I want to try playing standard and thought maybe building a budget deck around Radha, Heart of Keld and Quartzwood Crasher would be good and cheap enough to get into standard.

The new Radha, Heart of Keld could be a decent addition to this, I'm checking it out in my lands matter deck atm.

XinZhao, Guerte: I think I will slot in Return of the Wildspeaker, but I got a foil Compost, so I might try that out at some point as well. I face mainly black and green in my meta, so it kinda fits well.
I agree with _Arra_, being able to creature tutor out a win with Craterhoof Behemoth is way different then Akroma's Memorial. Memorial definitely lays the hurt on when it comes out, but it very rarely wins games at the same level as Craderhoof.
I was not a fan of Sylvan Awakening when I played it previously. Maybe it is worth a relook.. but I would rather play something else to be honest. I wish our colors had creature sac outlet like Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Viscera Seer. What do you think about Repercussion? It plays into the burn strategy and combat as well.
Rasaru: Thanks! I think the deck is pretty amazing too! A good start for a budget built is fixing up the lands. There are many cheaper budget fetches out there, they just make the lands come in tapped most of the time. If you cut the money cards like Gaea's Cradle, Taiga, Wheel of Fortune, and Mana Crypt you will be really close. Most of my decks value is the fact that it is foiled out.
I love Reliquary Tower. I am almost always happy to have it, or hope to draw it. This deck draws a ton of cards, many of which we want to keep in our hands.
Expect an update this week!
