I've run a number of very low curve decks in the past. I once ran a goblin deck with only 17 lands. Only 3 drop was 3x [[Goblin Chieftain]]. Currently I'm running a white weenie in Standard, which I'm working on converting to modern.

Thanks

Being such a cheap planeswalker and having such a low loyalty, I don't expect it to last very long on the battlefield. Besides, with it being so cheap, I can always activate one, then play another to get another activation. But I guess only time will tell 4 is too much (when I eventually get the cards so I can test this deck).

I was super happy to see them printed in modern. They're a perfect upgrade to my [[Seismic Assault]] deck:

[[Tranquil Thicket]] is an excellent cantrip that works well with [[Life from the Loam]] and can be used on [[Ayula's Influence]].

Thanks.
I want to be able to cast Icehide Golem reliably, so I can't remove too many Snow lands. [[Emeria, the Sky Ruin]] is an option I'm considering, but entering tapped is really not looking good.

You look like you need an effect of at least one of the following:
[[Ezuri, Renegade Leader]]
[[Craterhoof Behemoth]]
[[Decimator of the Provinces]]
[[End-Raze Forerunners]]
[[God-Eternal Rhonas]]

You can look into making it just a value card. I once ran [[Heartless Summoning]] to slam cretures like [[Grave Titan]] early. I even ran [[Phyrexian Metamorph]] because with Heartless and Phyrexian mana, I could pay {1} (and 3 life) to copy ANY creture or artifact (don't even need to play blue). My backup to the "ramp" Heartless provided was [[Wayfarer's Bauble]], which if played on turn 1, ramps you to have the big threats out 1 turn earlier without the - 1/-1 penalty of Heartless.

I ran RB, so I could include cheap sweepers like [[Anger of the Gods]] to stem the stream of aggro.

[[Darksteel Citadel]] is a must.

[[Huntmaster of the Fells]] and [[Immerwolf]] don't play well together. One wants to transform as often as possible, and the other prevents it from transforming.

Didn't past Blue Moon decks sometimes run [[Spreading Seas]]? Haven't seen Blue Moon in a while, so I'm not sure if anything has changed.

Seeing this, and the meta, makes me want to dust off my Ponza deck.

I do believe there is a difference between play % and win %

It'd have to be a land with that ability, otherwise is it's another non-land for [[Treasure Hunt]] to hit and does not contribute to the combo.

The other option is to swap [[Zombie Infestation]] and all the black mana out for red mana and [[Seismic Assault]] to turn each land drawn into a free [[Shock]].

KCI was difficult to pilot (I still don't understand some of its interactions), but the few who could pilot it properly proved how bad it was to play against. I think the trick revolved around KCI's ability counting as a mana ability, ie: can't be responded to.

Everyone had a sideboard for it and even that was not enough. A skilled KCI player knew how to manipulate game rules involving how KCI works in such a way that it got around most forms of hate, and even had a backup plan for the hate it couldn't work around in the form of [[Sai, Master Thopterist]].

[[Elvish Archdruid]], [[Elvish Mystic]], and [[Llanowar Elves]] all add mana, meaning you can skimp on some lands. With these creatures at their current numbers, I'd say it's safe to go as low as 19-20 lands.

This opens up space for some more utility cards and more elves. [[Collected Company]] is probably the best "draw" spell for you, but it's price tag ($) might be a bit much, so you could use [[Lead the Stampede]] in its place.

With this extra space you could also move [[Nissa Revane]] to the main deck.
