Blasted Landscape Discussion

So spicy fam, what about the other cycle lands?

Cool deck! I have been wanting to build myself an eldrazi deck like this once I get the time and money to do so.
Out of curiosity, why Panharmonicon ? It only works with 3 of your creatures ( Thought-Knot Seer , Pilgrim's Eye , and Solemn Simulacrum ) and none of your artifacts. Is there some combo that I am missing?
Also, I'd suggest Ugin, the Spirit Dragon (if your budget allows it) as a great board wipe in colorless decks, Arcane Lighthouse as a strictly better Detection Tower , Blasted Landscape as a flexible draw option, and Urza's Incubator to further reduce the cost of your eldrazi.
+1 from me and happy deck building!

Before I go over Scroll Rack, Weathered Wayfarer is my favorite one drop creature in the game. It fixes mana, I run it with Desert of the True, Secluded Steppe, Blasted Landscape, and Drifting Meadow in my mono-white (Hokori, Dust Drinker), and it puts in serious card draw. Consider running a couple more cycling lands, but you don't need them. I always ran Mistveil Plains to bottom the cycling lands, and fetch them out again. Weathered Wayfarer became ": Draw a card." which is really powerful on a two drop that can fetch out Kor Haven, Maze of Ith, Buried Ruin, Inventors' Fair, Sequestered Stash, Inkmoth Nexus, etc.
Now onto the Scroll Rack point. Land Tax is a combo, yes, but Weathered Wayfarer is too. So is Sword of the Animist, so is Stonehewer Giant, occasionally Eternal Dragon is. And that's not including constant shuffling effects, think of Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, Tithe, Enlightened Tutor, Knight of the White Orchid, Stoneforge Mystic, Recruiter of the Guard, Thalia's Lancers, Oblation can be (I guess Path to Exile technically could be), Field of Ruin, Expedition Map, Inventors' Fair, Myriad Landscape, and all of the other effects you could run if you wanted two, like the good fetches, Arid Mesa, Windswept Heath, Flooded Strand, and Marsh Flats.
Not even including all of those, you run so much shuffle, plenty of which are every turn, that though you might not need Land Tax, Scroll Rack would do you wonders, and in testing, it works so much more than you give credit for. (I just ran the deck with one less plains)

A few other cards that would fit in flavor-wise would be Blasted Landscape and Cryptolith Fragment Flip. I'm pretty sure the second one is a reference to H.P. Lovecraft's "The Color Out of Space", which is one of my favorite works by him :)

Like many of us I'm sure, I'm considering a Muldrotha, the Gravetide build and came across an interesting conundrum.
I could run 12 cycling lands in the deck:
I'd almost certainly not run the less efficient Blasted Landscape and with Ash Barrens and Fetid Pools occupying a different sort of design space (and basically being shoo-ins!) I wondered about the pros and cons of the others.
costing // OR // OR raises the question of what is the most useful or most efficient, whether indeed they all have a place.
What is everyone's thoughts on these various cycling types, how/if they belong in this commander, or others and why? I've looked for discussion on this on Google and have come up with very little so if anyone has links they can post too that would be interesting...

As I read you put this is your first EDH deck so do you know that Arcum is one of the competitive EDH decks.
A lot of people run Zero Drop artifact creatures like Phyrexian Walker and the like.
Then make infinite Mana at this point and with the flute on the field you can just pull out any creature in your deck.
But most people just go get Walking Ballista.
Then play it for an insane amount of Mana and after it hits the field remove 1/1 counters to deal damage directly to their opponents.

I like the super budget, but still effective deck. I'd immediately add Drownyard Temple, which you can sacrifice to Gitrog and then pay 3 to get it back.
Other suggestions for lands would be to add all of the black/green/colorless cycle lands (i.e. Polluted Mire, Slippery Karst, Tranquil Thicket, Barren Moor, Ash Barrens, Blasted Landscape, Desert of the Indomitable, and Desert of the Glorified. I'd also consider any of the lands that either sacrifice to get you more mana or lands Evolving Wilds/Jund Panorama None of them are more than $0.20 or so on TCG Player, and are super available. There are way more than this, but these are the ones you're most likely to find for cheap, and avoids fetch lands.
I won't tell you how to build your deck, but this is definitely a way to add some extra card draw and advantage to your deck.
