Hi FolkOccult !

Thank you for your suggestion! Sylvan Scrying looks gorgeous and is definitely in theme with what I'm going for ☺️

To clarify, I am interested in making this Sisay deck as strong as it can be under the conditions I set, so if you have any other cards in mind, I'd appreciate hearing your choices.

Hi FolkOccult!

I sincerely appreciate you reaching out to help improve my deck, and am really encouraged by your kind words, as well as your Sylvan Scrying recommendation. I'll be adding that one to the pile to sort through later ??

To clarify, I intend to make the best Sisay deck possible under this condition, I take my theme decks very seriously!

I tried messaging you as it seemed to work, but have since not been able to load your profile. I apologise if I was too forward in my contact. Thank you again!

I've nothing to add but my respect to looking like you're trying to make a proper deck out of this concept. Here's my contribution to the maybe list you have. Sylvan Scrying.

If you're running the Tron lands in EDH, cards like Crop Rotation, Sylvan Scrying, Elvish Reclaimer, and other land search cards will help pull them out. I'd almost recommend taking them out and replacing them with other lands, so you don't have 7+ cards ultimately dedicated to providing 7 colorless mana.

Pestilence is a repeatable source of life loss that can double as a small board wipes once you get some big creatures out.

How useful are the Sanctums? Sanctum of Stone Fangs is good with your commander, but Sanctum of Fruitful Harvest doesn't seem to add much.

I would also suggest adding some more cheap (2-3 mana) removal.

debuf If I came across as accusatory, that wasn't my intent. Stress happens to everyone. It's all good.

The swampwalk trick is a good thing to keep in mind. I would use it in a deck, with maybe a third color, that has good graveyard availability for Filth and some land-specific searches like Expedition Map or Sylvan Scrying. It's a good strategy for picking up an unexpected win, but this deck does that very well already.

For Maze of Ith, if a creature is attacking, you can tap Maze to make that creature not be attacking. It's useful to save one of your creatures after your opponent uses a combat trick that would kill it, or to prevent an opponent's big smashy creature from hurting you. If your opponent attacks with Atarka, World Render, you can tap Maze to nullify the attack.

Yeah, in every deck I've tried to put Far Wanderings in it doesn't do very well (except a Mimeoplasm deck I made once). I think Sylvan Scrying is a fitting replacement.

Alright, a 2 for 1 response comment.

First, @king-saproling. I really don't think that Crucible of Worlds is the right card to drop. Because this list runs so many fetches, effects that allow you to play more than just Forests from your graveyard are very necessary. What do you think about dropping Zendikar's Roil instead? The list loses some token generation, but with Titania you have more than enough of that, and Perilous Forays adds another layer to the recursion engine.

Second, @TheOfficialCreator: Sylvan Scrying is a good card that I'm pretty sure flew under my radar because I misread it for a basic land tutor... yeahhhh, oops. But anyway, I'm thinking of slotting that in for Far Wanderings because during playtesting, Far Wanderings preformed much worse than I would have hoped and the effect without the Threshold ability active is not worth the cost.

Since you're running Prismatic Omen already, what do you think about Sylvan Scrying? It can grab Yavimaya or, technically, any other land you may want, and is less vulnerable to removal.
