I have just done some testing- you need to try Trade Routes / Tolaria West . It allows you to reliably repeat any spell- which includes locking your opponent out of the game with Gigadrowse / Exhaustion .

Retreat to Coralhelm + Llanowar Scout + Trade Routes + a basic land = INFINITE LANDFALL!!!!

And Hedron Crab would be a nice Win-Con with this combo.

I'm running this combo in my Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle EDH Deck.

Vzq, Thank you so much for suggesting Trade Routes for this deck! I was trying to look at a way to bounce lands in the late game, but I couldn't find anything suitable.

Looks Sweet! Trade Routes is always a fun card with Landfall triggers.

Here's my list of Yarok if you want to compare notes.

Nasser_inside1 Every spell added to the deck decreases the land count, decreases the chance that you'll chain your land cycles, decreases the chance that Field of the Dead will proc, and decreases your ability to draw other key spells (most spells aren't cantrips, but in this deck, all lands are).

Since Trade Routes turns every land in the deck into self mill and draw, any spells with those effects must yield better returns than cycling a number of lands equal to the spell's cost. For example, a 4-cost spell which mills 4 cards is not as good as 4 land cycles. Land-cycling is also highly cost efficient - I can always cycle them no matter how large or small my mana pool is, but I couldn't cast two 4-mana spells with 5 mana.

Could I make my own deck themed around Trade Routes and Splendid Reclamation inspired by yours?

Thanks for the upvote Nasser_inside1! The card Trade Routes already turns every land in the deck into self mill and draw! Note that cards costing less than 3 would render Shardless Agent ineffective at fetching the Routes.
