I really like how this is looking! I've got one more suggestion of minor note... Spitfire Lagac does amazing table clears, but there is also a cheaper version of him. Check out Tunneling Geopede. One CMC less and achieves the same affect. I have both in mine specifically for the potential table wipes. Let me know what you think!!

Alright, let's do this.

Good day to you, FacetiousFanboy. Now, I have a mere one lands-matter deck, whereupon 'tis the extent of my knowledge upon the strategy, but 'tis something I have meticulously tinkered for quite the meiny of years. Therefrom, I may offer my enlightenment.

Upon the very intrinsic parts, we have the categories of a commander deck: removal, wraths, card draw, ramp, lands, recursion, and engines. Being a legendary creature in the modern era of Magic, Mina and Denn grant a splendid engine from the command zone. Allow me to touch upon the basics within the decklist.

In order aforesaid, removal:

I mayn't have ever seen Relic Crush, but I do not like it. Five mana to kill two things is far too inefficient, thus I would recommend you take this out of the deck. Force of Vigor is better on most accounts.

Storm the Citadel requires you to have a board state, and requires a sorcery-speed deployment. Removal is best utilized in surprise, and being a sorcery negates such a factor. I do not like this card.

I would add Chaos Warp, for it hits any permanent at an efficient cost and at instant speed. One I much like is Hull Breach. Two-mana, two targets. It does not get much better than that.

Unto wraths:

I have noted a supreme lack of wraths. I have also noticed some inefficient X-spells for which you intend to use twelve or so mana. Try removing Banefire, Clan Defiance, Spitfire Lagac, Tunneling Geopede, and Living Twister. The pinging effects matter little until the opponents are sitting at seven life. Living Twister is one I have tried and disliked. Banefire and Clan Defiance hit the opponents' face, but do near to nothing in terms of furthering your board state. These are great when you are ahead, but you currently have no options for when you are behind.

Try Blasphemous Act, Chain Reaction, Molten Disaster, and Savage Twister. In the event of you finding one, do add Ezuri's Predation.

Upon card draw.

If you so desire X-spells to utilize, I would add Commune with Lava. It may be cast upon the endstep before your turn, and thus offers many more option without requiring you to tap out.

Escape to the Wilds offers a new hand and an additional land drop, whilst being a mere $0.25.

Well, Valakut Exploration has impressed me. It is essentially another Horn of Greed, which bears much dint. I would add these both for the endless engines they offer.

Similar yet potentially better, Tireless Tracker. Clues are fantastic, and are a splendid devotion of mana for use at any time. By this argument, I would kill Seer's Sundial. I have attempted the Sundial, but it requires a mana dump immediately as averse to any time.

Courser of Kruphix is just better than Grazing Gladehart. It may be half of the life gain, but the card draw off of the library's top is fantastic.

Outside of land-related draw engines, there are the basic ones of Outpost Siege, Elemental Bond, Guardian Project, and Harmonize.

Ramp, of course.

Notably, you are in Green, the very pinnacle of ramping. I would add the basics of Rampant Growth, Farseek, Harrow, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Skyshroud Claim, and SOL RING.

As to what should be removed, Rootweaver Druid ramps you for one and an opponent for two. It could ramp you for two and your opponents for four. You always come out behind in this exchange, and thus I would see this fit for exclusion. Far Wanderings is great, but best if you have a full graveyard. This deck cannot achieve Threshold too easily, thence this effect may be improved.

Returning from the grave, recursion it shall be.

This is an optional field, but it is nice to have an option or two. I see but Seeds of Renewal. Seven mana for two things returned? I nill. Bala Ged Recovery  Flip serves as a land early and a win condition late. Eternal Witness is just always fantastic.

Start your engines.

What in heck is this Sporemound Nonsense? A five-mana 3/3 that spawns 1/1s. Quite lacking indeed. I do not see any justification for having this in the deck.

Crash of Rhinos is cute, but does not accelerate your gameplan by itself. Large, but not unbeatable. I am not fond of Akoum Hellkite myself, but it is better than others of what I would remove.

Primeval Bounty is always lovely, but not requisite. I believe it to be more powerful than current options in your deck.

Zendikar Resurgent doubles the mana and offers much card draw, winning the game once you untap. Beast Whisperer is similar, but an early-game card.

Given the number of tokens you create Purphoros will drain the opponents' life apace. In the same avenue, Evolutionary Leap can offer defense if someone attempts to kill a creature, or it can find a better use for your tokens.

Comet Storm is a far more efficient version of the X-spells you had opted to include, for it can remove problematic threats or multiple problematic players.

Unto finality, Genesis Wave can plop out most of your deck upon the table, and it is difficult to lose from there.

Conclusion.

Thus is the end of my babbling. Pardon the overlong comment, but I do hope it was of some aid.

I do have my own list, as forementioned, built around the lovely Hazezon Tamar. If you would so deign to peer upon its glory, that would be splendid.

The Lands Restored

Fare thee well.

Have you considered Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith and Kodama of the East Tree as the generals? They have nice landfall synergy and can combo off with a Gruul Turf or Guildless Commons.

These come to mind as well: Stone-Seeder Hierophant, Animist's Awakening, Kamahl's Druidic Vow, Sporemound, Fertilid (has nice synergy with Retreat to Kazandu), Reap and Sow, Pir's Whim, Sylvan Scrying, Elvish Rejuvenator, Scute Swarm, Tunneling Geopede, Spitfire Lagac, Valakut Exploration

plakjekaas on Can This Turn-3 Infinite Landfall …

I'm playing a deck with possible infinite landfall combo's that has more pieces interacting with Retreat to Coralhelm, maybe not from turn 3, but still, redundancy is key in commander:

Oboro, Palace in the Clouds / Meloku the Clouded Mirror / Trade Routes / Living Twister can all return a land to hand for 1 mana

Walking Atlas / Llanowar Scout / Sakura-Tribe Scout / Skyshroud Ranger can then put the land back in play and trigger Retreat to Coralhelm to untap itself.

Lotus Cobra will help you make all the mana you need. Knight of the Reliquary + Retreat can put all your forests and plains into your graveyard for a big Splendid Reclamation. Tunneling Geopede / Spitfire Lagac will kill your opponents even if they'd play an Eldrazi Titan that shuffles back their graveyard. I'd also include a few ways to give haste to a creature, so you won't have to wait a turn before you can combo.

So the best tip I can give you with this combo: breach out to more colours than just Blue and White. Landfall decks just work best with Green included, because Green can get you a lot of lands into play, even when you're not going infinite. There's more landfall pieces in existence than alternatives to Retreat to Coralhelm, so that might improve the consistency of the deck, making it more enjoyable to play, even if you're having a hard time assembling the combo.

Unless you want to challenge yourself and make a Landfall deck without green. In that case I'm all for it and wish you the best of luck!

Love it! I'm tired of green landfall decks and was also thinking about all the other color combinations. There's a bunch of cool one's coming with Zendikar rising and a few more that you could consider would be the white creatures (Emeria Angel, Emeria Shepherd, Admonition Angel), the red pingers (Spitfire Lagac, Tunneling Geopede), good ramp/utility creatures (Knight of the White Orchid, Weathered Wayfarer). Useful artifacts include Ghirapur Orrery and Thaumatic Compass  Flip and some more lands that I find useful would be Ghost Town, all the "fetches" (Terramorphic Expanse, Fabled Passage, Evolving Wilds, Arid Mesa etc), the bouncelands e.g. Boros Garrison, Terrain Generator.

keep up the good work!
