Tap: You may put a land card from your hand onto the battlefield.
Walking Atlas Discussion

Finally got around to updating this list with new cards from the last few sets, as well as adjustments to the main deck that I liked. I also missed Beetleback Chief , that should have been in here for a long time.
I also cut the number of lands by 2 so more align with the actual performance of the deck. This change may make Walking Atlas and Terrain Generator less strong, so if you like the lower landcount you may want to remove these two to make room for more cool stuff!
Let me know what you think!

I can see one possible use: during a Warp World combo, if you use an Eternal Witness to return a Wooded Foothills from your graveyard to your hand, your Arboreal Grazer can put it on the battlefield. This is a thing the old Elvish Pioneer couldn't do, because it only allowed basic land.
Since it enters tapped, this doesn't net you any more mana, just more permanents. So, I don't think this is a very good plan.

JustinWunderlich, yes, it also has a +1/+1 counter theme to get Omnath beefed up. I’m also running some trample effects so that the commander damage gets through. So, how the infinite mana works with Retreat to Coralhelm + Storm Cauldron is you need either Llanowar Scout , Sakura-Tribe Scout or Walking Atlas . Tap a land for mana, it’ll bounce to your hand because of Storm Cauldron . Tap a Land dork, ie Llanowar Scout to put that same land into play, which triggers landfall from Retreat to Coralhelm which you choose to untap Llanowar Scout and just keep repeating those steps for infinite mana. This can also be done similarly with Cloudstone Curio instead of Storm Cauldron .

I understand that. Are we talking blue players using counterspells, or other types of control. If you're in a heavy blue meta, you could consider running Carpet of Flowers as a ramp option. (Sorry, guess that's out of budget...)
Aside from the suggestions I mentioned, there are other budget options that are a bit slower, but can still help out. Cards like Walking Atlas , Skyshroud Ranger , Llanowar Scout , and Sakura-Tribe Scout can get you extra land drops. They might be worth running over some of the 4 CMC land-tutor spells, to help out your curve a little. Entirely up to you, though. Hour of Promise is strong, as it let's you get any two lands; not restricted to basics.

you are very correct there are several other options you can use. Llanowar Scout / Walking Atlas / Sakura-Tribe Scout . The way i make sure that i can always get the combo of (if i want to) is by adding enough effects to bounce/sacrafice lands like Zuran Orb Meloku the Clouded Mirror or Trade Routes . Everytime i look at this deck i remember a card that would fit in snuggly and this time it is Roil Elemental besides that i think Nissa, Vital Force is great as it only needs to tick up once to get the ultimate.

Now that I look... I don't have any land fetch. Thanks for pointing that out.
If I get Ruin Ghost and Retreat to Coralhelm or Walking Atlas with any bounce land then I can trigger whichever landfall effect I have in play. My previous build of this deck had Black with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and Retreat to Hagra as a path to victory.
