Enchantment — Aura
Whenever enchanted land is tapped for mana, its controller gains an additional (in addition to the mana the land produces).
Wild Growth Discussion
1 day ago
I think you need faster ramp and probably more land to cast so many high powered spells consistently. Since this is casual, Wild Growth is pretty budget friendly. Fertile Ground is good, too. I suggest you cut Urban Burgeoning and Selesnya Locket for a 4 land enchantments that double the mana per tap. Since you're trying to populate, I also suggest cutting 1x of each of your highest CMC creatures in favor of some 1CMC mana dorks: Avacyn's Pilgrim can help mana fix for white, and Elvish Mystic or Llanowar Elves will ramp green. A possible 2CMC creature: Voyaging Satyr will double down on enchanted lands.
Personally, I'm not a big fan of of Elvish Visionary, so I'd cut that in favor of a spell that actually gains card advantage instead of just can-tripping, especially since there's not an Elf Tribal sub-theme. For budget, I think it doesn't get much better than Harmonize . If you ramp hard, Mentor of the Meek offers some synergy and is repeatable.
I'd cut Common Bond and add 2x more lands.
I think it's also worth considering more aggressive disruption in the form of Beast Within / Generous Gift . You could use them on yourself if you wanted a 3/3 to populate, or on pretty much anything an opponent controls.

So I think you probably don’t want 36 lands... frankly, I think you want 33 at most. The reason I say this is that, being green, your deck has access to the best ramp in the game. You should strongly consider running any/all of the following: Llanowar Elves , Elves of Deep Shadow , Fyndhorn Elves , Elvish Mystic , Deathrite Shaman , Birds of Paradise , Arbor Elf , Utopia Sprawl and/or Wild Growth .
You want your creatures to be synergistic with your general and be more than midrange value. I think cards like Mindslicer , which effect the board when sacrificed as well as being a body, are likely a lot better than Wall of Blood , Splinterfright , Rhizome Lurcher , etc. Other creatures to consider for these slots: Stinkweed Imp , Golgari Grave-Troll , Eternal Witness , Entomb , Kokusho, the Evening Star ...
This list could also benefit from more card-drawn. Phyrexian Arena is the classical example, but there’re other good options. I like the Shamanic Revelation in your MB; I suggest considering Night's Whisper , Blood Divination , Life's Legacy , Minions' Murmurs , Syphon Mind and Succumb to Temptation .

Hey, I agree with RNR_Gaming. Add more ways to cheat Dinos onto the battlefield because Gishath is eight mana. If you don't want to do this then increase the amount of ramp a lot. My advice is consider doing both?
Road of Return is interesting, it can put Gishath into your hand from the Command Zone. Combine this with a way to cheat a creature onto the battlefield. It can be a faster way to getting Gishath onto the battlefield. Atla is busted with Marauding Raptor ; a repeatable way to cheat creatures onto the battlefield.
Tutors within the budget to consider adding:
Gamble can potentially get Mirari's Wake . Call is one of the best creature tutors in Commander. Dawn can set-up the top of your library for a Gishath trigger or for Atla.
Ramp to consider adding:
Most of these ramp options are good with mana doublers: Regal Behemoth and Mirari's Wake as these are priority cards to want to have on the battlefield since they give you the best chance of ramping into Gishath or other Dinos.
If you like some of these suggestions then I offer advice on what cards to cut. Good luck with your deck.

Narset, Parter of Veils is quickly becoming a blue EDH staple... she's amazing. If you run her, include Windfall as well -- it refills your hand, but if Narset, Parter of Veils is out, it also reduces your opponents'.
Carpet of Flowers is a good mana source if your meta is like mine and everyone is in blue. If you don't want to run elves, you should at least consider one-mana enchant-lands like Utopia Sprawl or Wild Growth . These are pretty good turn one plays.
Since you're only running a few artifacts with activated abilities, consider Collector Ouphe -- he can be a real pain for decks relying on artifact mana. If you don't put him in, consider Slate of Ancestry as a draw-engine.
I'd run Jace, Wielder of Mysteries instead of Laboratory Maniac if you want to go that route. Generally, you want combo pieces to have a large impact even if you don't have the combo in hand, and Laboratory Maniac is just a bear if you're not going off. Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is a draw engine as well.
Waterlogged Grove is a good land to consider. Also Flooded Grove . If you run Dryad Arbor , you'll be able to fetch it with Green Sun's Zenith . If you want to keep your basic land count high, also consider Back to Basics .

Very nice deck you got there. Please, allow me to give some input as a fellow cEDH player. First off, I see all stax cards in your deck there is but very few removals. Hence, I kindly would like to share some input on balancing the decks versatility.
Copperhorn Scout doesn't fly, is likely to die and doesn't add much to the deck since you already get to untap with your commander. I would rather suggest to instead add some removal in the form of Ulvenwald Tracker , which adds tremendous values combined with all the untaps
Ethersworn Canonist chances are that your opponents won't play a lot of spells due to Winter Orb ect... and you already got the best one of all ( Eidolon of Rhetoric ), therefore I would rather swap it for some better hate in cEDH which would be Spirit of the Labyrinth
Vryn Wingmare same goes here. I wouldn't play any stax pieces with CMC 3 or higher (too slow and you get better effects for same CMC). For 3 CMC can get Recruiter of the Guard , Eternal Witness , Knight of the Reliquary , Knight of Autumn , Banisher Priest / Fiend Hunter . Note: In your case I would go for removal effects, since you have only Gilded Drake . A Yisan deck would crush yours since it is not affected by stax (since it's a stax deck as well) and would tutor Ulvenwald Tracker and kill all your flyers and dorks.
Archon of Valor's Reach I think this is a classic win-more card which you don't really need to win the game. An alternative would be Gaddock Teeg . However, if you insist on having a high CMC mana drop that completely destroys the game board in your favor, I would like to introduce Willbreaker
Utopia Sprawl / Wild Growth : Since you are a creature deck I would much rather play the remaining mana dorks in order to have more hitters for untap triggers but more importantly, to not be affected by your own stax. Remaining dorks are: Boreal Druid , Priest of Titania ,
Nature's Claim since you are a creature deck and you will be slowing down the game tremendously, I strongly believe that Aura Shards is a better option to go with. It is recurrent and you are very light on removal. What can you do against a Cursed Totem or Humility ?
Tangle Wire I believe you don't really need this stax piece. It's one of the weakest and only holds up a very short time. Instead try for example Nature's Will - this has proven to be quite devastating. Or Living Plane if you seek to lock out all lands of your opponents together with Linvala, Keeper of Silence
Cyclonic Rift seems fine but could also be a win-more card. I presume you would cast this very late in the game and only as an emergency for 2 CMC. Hence, you can ask yourself if this card is really needed to win or if you perhaps would rather have another card that helps to set you up in the early game. I.e. Sylvan Tutor / Fauna Shaman ect...
I hope this was insightful to you. And no, I am not playing Derevi myself ;) But I do actually play a lot against it.

Sorin_Markov_1947: The deck only has 15 elves including Yeva, Nature's Herald , which makes Elvish Archdruid inconsistent, that and I don't care to buff my elves with the exception of maybe, Marwyn ? Earthcraft allows me to storm off without worrying about summoning sickness while also becoming a Mana Reflection if I have Utopia Sprawl / Wild Growth on a Forest. Voyaging Satyr is for all intents and purposes a Mind Stone with summoning sickness, but once summoning sickness wears off it's a Crop Rotation away from storming off at instant speed. The primer goes into great detail regarding each and every card choice and this deck has been tried and tested so much that I can assure you that it works as is.
Deadpoo111: The actual list is $1,599.00, which I just verified with TCGPlayer. The budget version is actually $195.93 (TCGPlayer verified as well), but I place it at $230.00 cause card prices fluctuate and it had spiked up to $230 when it was originally $200.
The term budget is VERY relative and in this case. Paying for 14% (230/1599) of the original list's total and only losing about 1-2 turns worth of speed is a HUGE bargain and DEFINITELY budget if your goal was to play this without spending $1k+. Also, please note that a good portion of these cards are typically abundant in decent-sized collections, unless of course you're starting from scratch. BUT, back to relativity: The budget version is "Budget" relative to cEDH AND its original variation.
Thank you both for taking the time to read my guide! :D

I am Jenara player from Leviathan Commander (30hp format). You should def. include Spell Queller as he's amazing tempo creature.
