So I kinda whipped up this deck, which is based off something I saw played against me once at an LGS back when those were a thing. It's pretty comboey and can feel like playing solitaire sometimes. Playing online is a lot more cutthroat than I'm used to and my usual deck (Uro) is very slow. This deck explodes. The basic premise is to ramp hard and fast, play Multani into a greater good style effect and keep going. Make insane amounts of mana and drop an elderscale wurm/glacial chasm into a massive squall line/hurricane. It can go off as early as turn 3 or 4 sometimes. I'm pretty sure I could make it faster by using some more lands to hand effects rather than ramp, or if it's even out there some more lands to battlefield untapped effects. This deck goes quite infinite, not something I usually do. But since I can't play with my friends and most of mtgo is cutthroat as hell it has made me happy to try and recreate this beast. I would like to know the thoughts of @darrenhabib on this. Most likely cuts seem Veteran Explorer [/card], Explosive Vegetation, World Shaper(not even sure why this is in here) and the mana dorks. High profile adds would be anything that can untap all my lands on demand and cheap ramp that etb's untapped.

The commander is Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar [/card]...forgot how to make that show up right.

Its hard to go wrong with a deck like this. Draw and mana..yup.

You want to play the maximum number of draw=power, so Return of the Wildspeaker and Life's Legacy as well.

Grim Monolith is $10 on MTGO and goes infinite colorless with Nyxbloom Ancient or Mana Reflection.

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is $4, and amazing for producing mana.

Its super hard to pass up on Finale of Devastation. With Green Sun's Zenith its nice to have a few silver bullets in creatures.
Along those lines for additional access you can change City of Solitude to Dosan the Falling Leaf.
Harrow to Springbloom Druid.
Reclamation Sage and/or Caustic Caterpillar.
Also Collector Ouphe look amazing in this deck.

Genesis Wave is a must.

A little edge you can try is using Natural Order to get out a quick Nyxbloom Ancient (or Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger).

Not really sure about Hurricane and Squall Line.
If you want win conditions then Shaman of Forgotten Ways has always done me proud.
Also Kamahl, Fist of Krosa Kamahl is a great defense card against creature board wipes as you can threaten to make your opponents lands into creatures. I've punished a Toxic Deluge type effect by turning all the casters lands into a 1/1 creatures, then followed that up with the question.."why would you purposefully destroy all your land like that!?"

Had actually thought of Return of the Wildspeaker [/card] but forgot about Life's Legacy. Grim Monolith is still more than I currently have tix for and I don't think it's totally necessary. Collector Ouphe [/card] is in for sure, might as well swap City of Solitude [/card] for Dosan the Falling Leaf [/card]. My initial reasoning was City is harder to remove but if you can start going off after dropping Dosan it probably doesn't matter. I like the idea of using Shaman of Forgotten Ways, but Hurricane and Squall Line work great and you will likely have the mana/ability to drop an Elderscale Wurm out and survive it. Also unsure of what I'd do if they have creatures, where hurricane/squall line should win outright no matter what. I love the idea of using Kamahl, but I use him in a mono g prison deck and I think this deck is too fast to need him like that.

So changes are:
+ Return of the Wildspeaker
+ Life's Legacy
+ Dosan the Falling Leaf
+ Genesis Wave
+ Collector Ouphe
+ Natural Order

- Rishkar's Expertise
- Llanowar Elves
- City of Solitude
- Elvish Mystic
- Explosive Vegetation
- World Shaper

Rishkar's expertise might have to come back, I'll make the OP reflect the changes too.

EDIT:
ALso decided
+ Springbloom Druid

- Veteran Explorer

It's pretty nice how they bring up auto selections when tagging cards. Props to whoever did that...but I have to keep deleting the second [/card] part of the tag because it adds an extra one

@darrenhabib

And yeah...draw and mana. It's not the spiciest or even necessarily interesting type of build but it can slam a game out and I already had most of the cards. Folks online don't seem to mind this too much so far, and I only join higher power pods with it. Been trying out Greven, Predator Captain too, slightly closer to your build than mine. Namely it has Ad Nauseam which seems surprisingly more fair than I thought it would. I mean, the point is to one shot people so whatever. It also has the tutors which I opted out of on paper. Otherwise they came out quite similar. Coolest cards I pulled from your build were Fury of the Horde and Immolating Souleater. Ok enough derailing my own thread, but I typed this out already so I'm not gonna delete it.
