Sire of Stagnation Discussion

I like how you're using the ingest mechanic, I've been wanting to try it in edh for a while. I feel like Sire of Stagnation would fit in nicely here, maybe in place of one of those one drops. Also consider Fathom Feeder and Blight Herder .

You're talismans are good ramp but are strictly worse than basic signets. I would replace them. In a deck with hefty lifegain they might be better - but i can forsee taking a ton of damage from then.
The The Immortal Sun , Guardian Project , Mystic Confluence , Ulvenwald Hydra , Seedborn Muse , Rune-Scarred Demon Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Hornet Queen , Courser of Kruphix , Oracle of Mul Daya ...and anything with Landfall are my least favorite cards for the deck. I think Landfall is an entirely different style this commander can be played with - as in I think it would need support from the entire deck and need to abuse Landfall with more cards. Right now I think the deck has a bigger Control theme. Cards like Roil Elemental or Sire of Stagnation need to be protected - and need an entire support system of counters and Explore and Harrow and Scapeshift and Splendid Reclamation and Crucible of Worlds etc etc.
Also you can probably go down to 32 lands.

Hey man a few cards to consider adding.
These trigger twice, and can help you create infinite manna:
More ETBs lets you get 2 creature and both have strong effects: Wild Pair

UnderworldFiend Craterhoof Behemoth is out of my price range, and Oblivion Sower is a cast trigger, not an etb, but I like it’s synergy with Sire of Stagnation . I don’t know how I can justify putting it in for synergy with one card tho, much less what to take out. I do like the idea of Inverter of Truth and Laboratory Maniac , although I’m thinking replace the Maniac with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries . To make this happen, what 3 cards should I remove?

Ignore what I said about Sire of Stagnation its really good here

Firstly, I feel I should mention that you can't play Kitchen Finks or Murderous Redcap in Yarok, as their commander identities are outside your colors. I know they're in the Maybeboard, but I thought you should know.
So the main bonus of playing green is the access to mana dorks. I think you should definitely run Llanowar Elves , Birds of Paradise and Elves of Deep Shadow , and Fyndhorn Elves , Elvish Mystic , Deathrite Shaman , Priest of Titania and/or Bloom Tender are all excellent cards as well. They also work with your Craterhoof Behemoth , which (by the way) I think is a great win con for you, especially with your Natural Order . Consider God-Eternal Rhonas as a secondary Craterhoof. Land-ramp like Nature's Lore or Farseek is also good.
In the same vein, lowering the average CMC of your deck is worth attempting. Lower CMCs mean a faster deck. Sol Ring is kinda a busted card.
You should consider tutor-cards. Demonic Tutor , Worldly Tutor and Mystical Tutor are all worth considering, as they can help assemble the combo really well. Similarly, card-draw is at a premium at EDH. Wirewood Symbiote is a great way to return Elvish Visionary or Masked Admirers while potentially making mana, if you choose to run dorks. Because you're running so many creatures, Slate of Ancestry may be a good artifact to include. Tireless Tracker is an excellent card for a landfall-Yarok deck.
I think you're running too many lands, even for a landfall deck. I suggest cutting two to five. If you choose to, keep in mind that lands that have the ability to ETB untapped are significantly better; make sure you cut Foul Orchard before you cut Woodland Cemetery . Fetch lands are great for making sure you have the colors you need; Prismatic Vista and the Zendikar/Onslaught fetches are the gold standard, though they're definitely hard to get ahold of. Slow fetches like Bad River or Flood Plain are good and much cheaper, though they're significantly slower (hence the name).
Xerox cards like Ponder , Preordain and Brainstorm are all good in blue decks. They'll dig you to the lands you need or get you past the lands you don't need. Brainstorm is mediocre if you don't have shuffle effects to get rid of the cards you don't want.
Some ETB-cards to consider:
Manglehorn : Yarok makes him into a 2-for-1, and the second clause is very significant in many games.
Temur Sabertooth : This is a good way to return creatures to your hand, both to protect them and to recur their ETB abilities.
Eternal Witness : Being able to recur any two cards from your 'yard is pretty good, especially if you choose to run the aforementioned tutors or land-ramp.
Baleful Strix and Ice-Fang Coatl : Two-mana draw-twos are great, and these can hold off early attackers. Baleful Strix is better, mostly because you don't have to have snow-basics to get Ice-Fang Coatl deathtouch.
Birthing Pod : This can tutor the creature you need and put it right onto the board. You just have to be careful you keep your creature-curve smooth enough for it to keep fetching.
Sire of Stagnation : Six mana, and it gets double triggers with Yarok.
Plague Engineer and Phyrexian Revoker : This might need a rules check, but I'm pretty sure Yarok lets you name twice. Naming the same creature type should give them all -2/-2 -- using this as removal seems pretty reasonable, and turning off two cards seems pretty good too.
Right. That's all I got. Good luck, man!
