Bad River Discussion

Swiftfoot Boots is another good equipment.
Trinket Mage fetches for 1 or less so Ancient Den an Vault of Whispers are a goo include, and Welding Jar might not be bad either. Also it could fetch a Phyrexian Dreadnought to combo with a Torpor Orb, Nimble Obstructionist, or Stifle.
Necropotence is an insane card draw engine.
And finally Sorin Markov would make a great planeswalker.

Thanks PookandPie! Dreadwaters was a mistake on my part, I fixed it and correctly added in Bad River (the german name of the card is "Dsterwasser" which explains the confusion). And thank you for the suggestions. I never considered Intruder Alarm and did not even know about this card, but it seems awesome. I will for sure give it a try!

Here are my land suggestions:
1x Fetid Pools
1x Maze of Ith - not really a land because it doesn't tap for mana, but it's a good card
1x Nimbus Maze
Here are the land cuts:
1x Blighted Fen
Which would leave you with a manabase of:
1x Fetid Pools
1x Maze of Ith
1x Nimbus Maze
1x Opal Palace
This manabase can largely be ported over to Zur, except for the lifegain taplands like Jwar Isle Refuge, which I think are generally just okay but are good in this deck because with Oloro out, you can play it and draw a card. I tried to keep the prices pretty low, because I didn't know your budget, but you can add Hallowed Fountain and stuff if you like (especially that one since it's cheap). Bad fetches like Bad River and Flood Plain get better if you spring for shocklands.

Since the tap fetches can get dual lands with Basic Land types they can actually choose from four colors each. For example Bad River can fetch blue/white, blue/black, or black/red duals. Will they be coming into play slower than molasses in the winter? Why, yes they will. But they are using "Tier-1 styled" land synergies while doing it for a fraction of the cost of an actual tier-1 Mana base. Unfortunately unless they reprint the shock lands and good fetchlands a bunch of times until they become cheap as dirt this is probably about as good as it gets.

If you're interested, there are cheaper fetchlands from Mirage: Grasslands, Rocky Tar Pit, Mountain Valley, Bad River. For a deck that runs White and Green Krosan Verge is amazing! The Panoramas are decent fetchlands too. The Bouncelands are also a good budget option for filterlands, and have synergy with resetting your Vividlands. The Lairs from Planeshift synergize with Vividlands too. The Guildgates and Lifelands are pretty good cheap duel land subs too.
For more in depth on your options there is a great website called Manabasecrafter.com. Pick your commander and ALL the possible lands are organized and listed for you. Unfortunately, the site does not show prices, so you need to look those up separately.

New mana base looks pretty awesome. I have some recommendations though. The enemy fetches are expensive, but the Mirage slow fetches aren't. (Bad River, Rocky Tar Pit, Mountain Valley, Flood Plain, and Grasslands). I know that Prof over at Tolarian Community College recommends 10 fetches, so you could try those.
I still don't like Crucible of the Spirit Dragon, but that's because I was losing badly, and I had a chance to hang on if I drew any land that could produce colored mana the turn that it came down. Crucible is a pain to use. I would replace it with something else. Personally, I feel lands like those belong more in an Atraxa deck.
Also, have you thought of Sarkhan Unbroken yet? Even if you can't ultimate him, you still get mana fixing, card draw, and Dragon tokens.

I will look at taking out Crucible of Fire for Quicksilver Amulet and Broodmate Dragon for Scalelord Reckoner. they shouldn't affect too much except adding some more white, which I think my current mana base can handle. Would Consign to Dust and/or Primeval Light suffice for enchantment/artifact hate? I know one is slow, but I would love you thoughts on these.
I feel like Steel Hellkite Siege Dragon Forgestoker Dragon Ryusei, the Falling Star Scourge of Valkas Deathbringer Regent Silumgar, the Drifting Death and Dragon Tempest give me a lot of pseudo wipes. I was looking to Merciless Eviction at some point because Indestructable is always a problem.
With all the ramp I have, Dragonstorm has been a game ender with Dragon Tempest and/or Ramos, Dragon Engine. I usually grab Scourge of Valkas, Broodmate Dragon, and whoever else I need for the situation. Usually it storms 3 times.
I would love a Bloodstained Mire, Wooded Foothills and Verdant Catacombs. Right now I'm running Rocky Tar Pit, Mountain Valley, and Bad River for budget reasons. I also want to put it a Cavern of Souls for Ancient Ziggurat
Into the Wilds really ramps! That is awesome, thank you for telling me!
You definitely seem more experienced then me so I hope keep bouncing ideas back and forth. This is SUPER helpful!
