Rude Awakening comes to mind. You are gonna want to search out all the lands you can. Boundless Realms, and Traverse the Outlands are really good at this.

Heck yeah, I'm going to order Traverse the Outlands and I've got the other card. Thanks!

Thoughts on Omnath, Locus of Mana, Nyxbloom Ancient, and Traverse the Outlands?

Also wouldn't Veil of Summer just be a straight up upgrade to Autumn's Veil?

Garruk's Uprising has been one of my favorite new cards in a while. At 3 mana it comes down early, and can draw you a card immediately as long as you have a beater out which makes it good at any stage of the game. Then it gives you that incremental value that plays with your big guys pretty well since they're all HUGE. All that and the fact it also gives trample is almost too easy to include. Basically a strictly better Elemental Bond and it's been really good for me.

On another note, I agree with you about Warstorm Surge. I've always found it to be a little too slow for my tastes and I always would rather just play a big beater to be honest. Terror of the Peaks has been such an overperformer since I decided to put it in, and I'm seriously considering dropping warstorm for something like Defense of the Heart.

Elder Gargaroth is another one that's been really fun to play around with. I'm almost thinking it would be a better Soul of the Harvest. I'm a sucker for drawing cards, and Gargaroth is super busted, especially when you double its power and give it haste. Basically guarantees that you at least get to attack and draw when you first play it, and that it's big enough that it's unlikely to die to blockers unless your opponents want to go out of their way to kill it. The other effects are just gravy, and the fact that it can draw when it attacks or blocks, AND has vigilance makes this thing another wall of text like Kogla, the Titan Ape and Questing Beast.

Grothama, All-Devouring is a fun include, cause it can be sort of political if you need it to be, or just a 20/18 beatstick. I normally treat it as a draw spell for myself though. You can play her, pump one of your other creatures, and swing it at Grothama to draw a crazy amount or sac it to Greater Good. You could also play it right before you drop something like a Blasphemous Act to draw 13 cards or even hit a fat Traverse the Outlands.
