You should definitely lower your curve. Even with all your ramp cards like Emeria Shepherd and Rampaging Baloths are far to slow. If you want to stay as a more midrange deck some cards I think you should consider are:

Zuran Orb: this combos excellently with Titania, Protector of Argoth and Elvish Reclaimer. It can easily be fetched with Urza's Saga (which is also a great target to fetch off of Harrow). Urza's Saga + Ramunap Excavator is also a really great combo.

Kazandu Mammoth  Flip: this is an excellent beater that can also be played as a land.

Ancient Greenwarden: although this is more casual then the other cards I've suggested so far once it synergises really well with your gameplan so I thought I would suggest it anyways.

I would also suggest running some utility lands that could be fetched with Elvish Reclaimer or Harrow. Some good ones off the top of my head are:

Blast Zone: Having tutorable removal is always excellent and Blast Zone is even better due to its combo with Ramunap Excavator. It might also be good to add Crucible of Worlds as extra copies of Ramunap Excavator that aren't affected by most removal.

Some other cards you should consider are Lair of the Hydra, Ghost Quarter, Steppe Lynx, Skyclave Apparition and Knight of Autumn.

Changes, 31Oct2021:

-1 Zendikar's Roil, +1 Scute Swarm. Roil may crank out larger tokens, but Swarm has a chance to get simply silly with the amount of tokens it makes, plus it's less expensive. With the biggest drawback being that the Swarm will be easier for opponents to get rid of, it's still a better card in this slot.

-1 Worm Harvest, +1 Phylath, World Sculptor. I'd been on the fence about including Phylath for a while. With a few other sources for plants as well as Doubling Season and Ancient Greenwarden now in the deck, Phylath is a very real threat. Only 1 CMC slot higher than Worm Harvest as well. While I'd love to include more retrace cards in this deck, Worm Harvest just costs too much for a card that will only be good situationally. Phylath should be good every time he makes it on the battlefield.

-1 Centaur Vinecrasher, +1 Wrenn and Seven. Vinecrasher is pretty underwhelming. W+7 does everything I want this deck to do. This was a super easy call.

-1 Walking Ballista, +1 Druid Class. As I mentioned before, I want to include every extra land drop card available. So I needed to find a slot for Druid Class. Walking Ballista is probably good in every deck that exists, but I mostly wanted it in here for the way it interacts with Retreat to Hagra. Any turn I can get a land drop with RtH out, Ballista turns into a targeted removal machine at instant speed (especially fun during opponents' turns with a fetch land usage). I can get this same effect with Akoum Hellkite, however. So, while the Ballista will be missed, one more card that lets me drops more lands will win me more games in the end.

-1 Decimate, -1 Constant Mists, +1 Demonic Tutor, +1 Chord of Calling. Also as mentioned before, I wanted to find room for these tutors at some point. Thank you, Strixhaven Mystical Archives for providing me with a $4 Demonic Tutor. For this deck to really get going, it's imperative that I get both The Gitrog Monster and something with a Crucible of Worlds effect (also available on Ramunap Excavator and Ancient Greenwarden, of course) out there together. Adding these 2 along with the tutors I was already running should dramatically increase the number of games I can successfully get the engine humming. Plus they can help me pick and choose what else I might want from my landfall toolbox if I've already got things going. While it did pain me a bit to take out one of very few cards that can deal with enchantments in Decimate, its demanding targeting requirements and overall strategy of my deck made it expendable. Mists falls into the same boat strategy-wise; I love that I could keep it with a land sac (which itself can be very advantageous for me), but in a game with anything good happening for me, I should be able to deal with combat damage other ways, so Mists went on the block.

This is a mistake, there is no interactions here.

Earthcraft has interaction with the following:

This will not work or combo with Kamahl’s Will, yet they are both really powerful cards and should be tested. Apologize for any confusion I will proof read another time if I'm editing late lol

That said all those cards need to be tested and I can only find three solid cuts right now. Taking a look at the role of cards tonight instead of interaction.

To be honest with you, the competitive meter here means almost nothing, I honestly dont know how it is calculated. haha. The strongest meren lists i have seen are Hermit Druid combo lists. how that combo works is like this (synopsis by SynergyBuild years ago, but still relevant because he is a badass) "Nah, by using the five color lands (City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Forbidden Orchard, Tarnished Citadel, Exotic Orchard, and Reflecting Pool), along with fetchlands, you can build up a fast (low to no tapped lands), consistent (at getting your colors), and no-basic landbase for Hermit Druid to deck you. Bring back Dregscape Zombie and Bloodghast, sacrifice them to Dread Return, bring back Necrotic Ooze, then use Wall of Roots's ability to activate Blighted Bat's, then make infinite mana between Devoted Druid and Channeler Initiate, then use Walking Ballista to instantly win the game!"

As a bonus, Ballista combos with Mikaeus as well, so you have some synergies between the two. Things like Entomb and Buried Alive will net you Hermit early so you can access him in a hurry. Some fast mana in the form of creatures and rituals, some nice interaction like you already have, and bringing the average manavalue of your deck down will help as well. You are already runnning Stitcher's Supplier which is my favorite bit of tech. Ramunap Excavator is another solid bit of tech I really like to combine with Azusa, Lost but Seeking to get all kinds of value. Blood Pet, Stinkweed Imp, and Golgari Thug are all good bits of tech for Meren. The Gitrog Monster is also surprisingly good for us. The card draw he can get us with a little bit of ssetup is nothing to be scoffed at. To be honest, the main issue i am having currently is finding solid self-mill options.

From Azusa player to Azusa player I like GASSSS, rebuilding mine recently and I've noticed something techs. I've been running Ghost Quarter recently. It's a free shuffle, but with land destro utility

  • If you have Courser of Kruphix, Augur of Autumn, or Oracle of Mul Daya on the battle field, drain the lands/cards off the top of your deck first. You're more likely to run into a card.
  • Play Ghost Quarter
  • If you would get more value off destroying a land then do that. (Be aware they will try to balance out their mana base)
  • Alternatively if there is a card on top your library that is a dead draw, pick a tapped land or tap a forest for mana, kill your own land and search out a forest that comes in untapped. (use the float)
  • If you have Ramunap Excavator, Ancient Greenwarden or Crucible of Worlds of worlds on the field you an repeat the previous steps. You can also float the mana from the forests being destroyed for each land drop than play something.

Timeless Witness is an ok tech if you want recurrence. Your not running Woodland Bellower, so its a 1 mana tradeoff to potentially get something later. Best way to think of it, if you feel a four mana green sun is better than a five mana green sun with later recurrence then don't make the trade off.

Good luck

Quite a large update. The printing of Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth called for some re-evaluations. I could include more utility lands in the deck and minimal cost due to its effect. Also due to all lands able to be forests, it allows for more mono green hyper mana shenanagins.

Solemn Simulacrum ---> Allosaurus Shepherd

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger ---> Azusa, Lost but Seeking

Wood Elves ---> Scryb Ranger

Primal Command ---> Ramunap Excavator

Akroma's Memorial ---> Arbor Elf

The Great Henge ---> Quirion Ranger

Evolution Charm ---> Crop Rotation

Desert Twister ---> Abundant Harvest

Forest ---> Ancient Tomb

Forest ---> Strip Mine

Forest ---> Wasteland

Forest ---> Wirewood Lodge

Forest ---> Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth

Forest ---> Mana Crypt

Mosswort Bridge ---> Maze of Ith
