The poison that Wesley was immune to could either be Moonglove Extract or Vial of Poison.

Dread pirate Roberts: Fathom Fleet Cutthroat or Fathom Fleet Captain or Hostage Taker and Dire Fleet Poisoner could represent the time Wesley spent as the pirate.

The boat Wesley uses might be Fell Flagship or Sleek Schooner or Shadowed Caravel. The boat the princess is kidnapped in could be Smuggler's Copter or Dusk Legion Dreadnought.

Shrieking eel: Shriekmaw or a Slipstream Eel equipped with Fireshrieker.

Dying Wish could represent the scene where Buttercup pushes Wesley down the hill and he yells "as you wish!"

Their battle "to the pain" could be Pain's Reward or Painful Quandary or Decree of Pain.

  1. Bojuka Bog will provide great graveyard interaction without affecting synergy. Swap it out with a swamp.

  2. Lotus Cobra provides fantastic early game ramp, especially combined with fetchlands.

  3. Swap out the bounce lands for anything else. That's the last thing this deck wants to do is bounce back 2 lands to your hand.

  4. Shriekmaw is a great utility spell for 2 mana.

  5. Since most casual groups outlaw mass land destruction and lands are harder to interact with, I'd recommend switching a few mana rocks for cards like Farseek, Rampant Growth, Nature's Lore, etc... They also help trigger additional landfall triggers if you were to run cards like Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, Avenger of Zendikar, etc...

  1. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and Sire of Stagnation are great psuedo landfall cards. 6 damage and 6 +1 counters, drawing 8 per opposing fetchland is just straight gas!

  2. Shriekmaw is a great utility spell. It also triggers Risen Reef.

  3. If you're looking for an alternative Birthing Pod, Prime Speaker Vannifar is fantastic

  1. Sire of Stagnation fits the landfall theme. He's straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.

  2. Consider adding some more creature removal in the form of Ravenous Chupacabra or Shriekmaw.

  3. Thassa, Deep-Dwelling will further help you abuse ETB effects each turn. Bounce Ravenous Chupacabra each turn to keep the battlefield clear, draw 2 extra cards per turn with Baleful Strix, put 2 more lands in play with Wood Elves, or continuously wipe the opposing board with Massacre Wurm.

  4. I'm seeing a lack of tutors with this deck. I imagine some are too expensive like Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor, which are amazing. Others in the form of Rune-Scarred Demon, Fierce Empath, Woodland Bellower really help the deck find pieces and continue to accelerate their board state without sacrificing anything. Btw, Bellower can find Empath.

  5. Bojuka Bog provides graveyard interaction without affecting consistency. Swap it out for a swamp.

For a budget build, this has a majority of the pieces needed to be competitive.

Other cheap options to include:

  1. Get the bounce lands out of the manabase. Returning 2 lands to hand is not what this deck wants to be doing.

  2. Command Tower and Bojuka Bog should definitely be in this manabase.

  3. Mulldrifter and Shriekmaw are great utility spells for this deck. They also trigger Risen Reef.

  4. Woodland Bellower combos with Fierce Empath. Nab Empath + Wood Elves to net 2 lands, Deadeye Navigator, and another fattie. This nets 6 cards off 1 creature cast.

  5. Thassa, Deep-Dwelling will help you further abuse ETB effects. Not exactly dirt cheap, but definitely a staple this deck wants.

  6. Sol Ring belongs in nearly every commander deck. This deck is no exception.

  7. You're going to want a few extra early turn mana acceleration. Sylvan Ranger, Farseek, and Cultivate are good options to accelerate your mana early turns.

I'm going to assume "pulled" means cards from your collection. Here's some recommendations for some cheap additions that will significant boost the power of the deck.

  1. Bojuka Bog will provide great graveyard interaction.

  2. Tatyova, Benthic Druid is great for lifegain and card draw.

  3. Shriekmaw is a great utility spells for 2 mana. It also triggers Risen Reef, another good synergy.

  4. Bounce lands do not belong in a Yarok build. Replace Simic Growth Chamber with any other land.

  5. Reclamation Sage is a great utility card as well.

  6. Sire of Stagnation draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.

  7. Deadeye Navigator is perhaps one of the most broken cards with Yarok. Infinite combos start with this guy.

  1. Bojuka Bog provides great graveyard synergy without affecting synergy. Great for multiplayer.

  2. Sire of Stagnation is straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.

  3. I like Sylvan Ranger over Sakura-Tribe Elder in its slot. If you're milling yourself, pulling 2 lands into your hand is better than 1 to me. I played a ton of Dredgevine in Modern over the years, so I appreciate this kind of acceleration.

  4. Mulldrifter and Shriekmaw make for great utility cards, no matter what kind of Yarok build. They also both trigger Risen Reef.

  5. Ramunap Excavator lets you play lands from your graveyard, which could help build a board state from the graveyard.

  6. Thassa, Deep-Dwelling will help you bounce creatures to further abuse ETB effects.

  1. Bojuka Bog will provide extra graveyard interaction without affecting consistency.

  2. Tatyova, Benthic Druid is a great 2 way threat... lifegain and card draw.

  3. I think it's a mistake to not run at least one creature removal threat that doesn't target yourself as well... Ravenous Chupacabra, Shriekmaw, etc... Shriekmaw also triggers Risen Reef.

  4. Ice-Fang Coatl, Baleful Strix, and Fblthp, the Lost provide additional 2 mana cantrips. It looks like you're trying to have a low curve, hence this recommendation.

  5. Deadeye Navigator allows for mana infinite combo shenanigans such as drawing your entire deck in one turn with Wall of Blossoms.

  6. Sire of Stagnation is straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.

  7. I'd highly recommend throwing in Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf. Going from 3 -> 5 lands or 4 -> 6 lands is such a tempo play for dropping fatties the following turn.

  8. Fierce Empath is a great tutor effect for this deck, especially late game. Add Woodland Bellower and you can net 6 cards off 1 creature cast. Use the 2nd trigger for Wood Elves. 2 lands + 2 creatures on top of the extra 2.
