i think you could get some use out of some of the better Moonfolk that return a land to your hand, combined with things that you have like Ayula's Influence. Meloku the Clouded Mirror and Uyo, Silent Prophet are probably the best but a couple other cool ones are Soratami Mirror-Mage and Soratami Savant. some other useful tricks to return lands to your hands are Vapor Snare, Deprive and Tragic Lesson. Trench Behemoth could also be an alternate win condition along the same vein. a few other land discard cards are Trade Routes and Compulsive Research. Greenseeker would also be very useful here. sweet deck overall and probably not room to add all of this but a few more tweaks could really make this shine.

Then again the recent Trench Behemoth is quite squid-y so w/e ¯I_(ツ)_I¯

(hopefully no Tidal Kraken reprint at least)

Meloku the Clouded Mirror would be a great addition to any deck running the Behemoth Engine or any landfall engine.

I have a note in the description about the great Moonfolk cards you can also put together with this. I also linked my Moonfolk commander deck if people want to see other ways to work the Trench Behemoth into their moonfolk commander decks or Moonfolk options for a dedicated Behemoth Engine deck.

This is great, I live it. Did you know there is a version of Trench Behemoth that has a win con included? Meloku the Clouded Mirror is the perfect card for the deck. I wish you tons of fun with the deck.

I just realized you left that great comment on my Archelos list and I didn't look at your deck yet. I've done it now. This is awesome, I took some more inspiration from here. I really like Groundskeeper, I might add it if I manage to find a slot.

There are two cards I think you might like: Trench Behemoth and Meloku the Clouded Mirror are possible finishers that enable additional land drops once you've out of lands to play.

A card I don't understand here is Ring of Evos Isle. Is it there for giving Yarok hexproof? If so, I think Lightning Greaves and/or Swiftfoot Boots would do a better job at that. I don't think the +1/+1 on Yarok is worth it.
