MY PRIDE AND JOY! 5 color manland tribal!

Although it clearly fits the strategy I'm not a big fan of cliche competitive Child of Alara. I prefer Genju of the Realm. My playgroup does too.

50% 0 CMC (48 land/2 artifact). Dark Confidant and Treasure Hunt are especially strong with these ratios.

Planar Outburst is the only Awaken card I felt fit the strategy. Cascading Cataracts is the strongest target.

The main beaters of the deck are Kessig Wolf Run plus one of the following: Celestial Colonnade, Creeping Tar Pit, Dark Depths, Hive of the Eye Tyrant, Hissing Quagmire, Inkmoth Nexus, Crawling Barrens, Shambling Vent, Needle Spires or Mutavault.

Sylvan Advocate is the manland lord of the list. Potential win condition alongside Sylvan Awakening.

Portcullis and 2 manlands keeps the board empty. Blast Zone, Engineered Explosives and Coercive Portal guarantee emptiness.

Life from the Loam with Trade Routes/Lotus Vale/Boseiju, Who Endures/Otawara, Soaring City/Takenuma, Abandoned Mire/ the 5 Triome lands = the main value engine of the deck.

Squandered Resources My favorite card in the game. Value engine in this deck and backbone to the strategy.

Creeping Renaissance or Sunder with Seismic Assault is a back up win condition. Life from the Loam a consistent 6. Trade Routes versatility meets utility.

Walk the Aeons with Titania, Protector of Argoth is a potential win condition.

Mana Web alongside Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth is the hardest of locks.

Retreat to Coralhelm and Knight of the Reliquary tutors a lot of lands.

Deserted Temple and Oboro Breezecaller filter the mana and utility.

Glacial Chasm, Maze of Ith, Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle are activated by Prismatic Omen and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove. Potential win condition with Scapeshift.

Urza's Saga has 3 powerful silver bullets Amulet of Vigor, Expedition Map and Engineered Explosives.

Amulet of Vigor fixes 19 lands, Manascape Refractor and Wrenn and Seven.

Karmic Justice protects 71 permanents. Sacred Ground only protects 48. This is why it is in the sideboard for situational heavy land destruction.

Lotus Vale is the big mana. Fixed by Crucible of Worlds, Ancient Greenwarden, Titania, Protector of Argoth and Vesuva. City of Traitors works with them too.

Some simple/subtle strong synergies that are found throughout this list:

Intuition + Academy Ruins/Hall of Heliod's Generosity/Volrath's Stronghold

Mox Diamond + Crucible of Worlds/Knight of the Reliquary

Gamble + Life from the Loam

Trade Routes + Seismic Assault

Manascape Refractor low-key MVP.

Side board is a serious attempt at 10 cards that hose strategies that hurt the theme of this deck. CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICSM WELCOME.
