Blighted Steppe Discussion

Fist of all, Brainstorm isn't modern legal.
Second of all Eerie Interlude is really bad here. It's way too clunky.

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.

Such a sweet idea and what a beautiful curve :O Not sure whether light of sanction works how you want it to or not you'll have to check that one. I reckon you should look into mana doublers and more x tokens spells for this deck making it more of a tokens deck at heart. Look at Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens and Thought Vessel for additional ramp and Storm Herd and Entreat the Angels for tokens. The deck needs more card draw too and rocks that double as card draw later and produce a reasonable amount of colourless for their cmc are worth running (see Hedron Archive and Mind Stone). I reckon you can cut a bit of single target removal from this deck too Stasis Snare, Arrest and Kor Sanctifiers aren't needed. Vessel of Ephemera is fricking terrible by the way you should drop that. You should play more non-basic land too. Windbrisk Heights, Blighted Steppe, Ghost Quarter and (if you wanna splash out) Emeria, The Sky Ruin would be decent choices. That reminds me Legion's Landing and Cathars' Crusade should be in here too (both of which you own)!
I think you really want to prioritise getting the mono colour mana-doublers for this deck because you really need a lot of mana to pump into making tokens. The lack of card draw and ramp in white are what makes it struggle in commander and you have to do everything you can to counteract this. Really love the deck though its one of a kind don't how you found all this en-kor stuff but its so cool! Hate to say it because I don't wanna take away from daxos but Avacyn, Angel of Hope would be epic in here too... Maybe just print out a proxy and you can switch it between decks if people have a problem with it? :)

I've just checked back and I really like the changes you made, it looks a lot more competitive already.
Finally, with the land situation, you could add in some helpful lands that have abilities such as Windbrisk Heights, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Blighted Steppe. (although be careful with colourless lands as you want to hit double white on turn 2 and turn 3.

Blighted Steppe in your land base for additional push?

go down to 16 creatures and open up slots for the Sram's Expertise like PipPipMagulager said maybe add a couple Dusk / Dawn to wipe over top of your creatures it's usually a blow out against b/g constrictor decks. add a Blighted Steppe or two for Ayli, The Eternal Pilgrim to go off and pillow fort a little. the players at the fnm are usually are usually surprised by a main deck Fumigate. anointer priest is amazing once you have a couple Anointed Procession's on the board so you have to play a game of when do you pull the trigger on embalming her and gaining massive life. she see's herself as a token so you gain one for embalming her but at one procession it's 4, at 2 it's 16 life, at 3 it's 64 life. ((that is if I have read the card right.))

I feel the deck needs a bit more life-gain. I suggest trying out 2 Heron's Grace Champion instead of the grim flayers. Other than that I feel like the deck is pretty good, but I've only been playing for a few months. Maybe cut down on the evolving winds? Could make the deck slow even though it has the potential to give you more clues. I would say 2 of them is nice and replace the other 2 for Blighted Steppe. I also sense that there are too many creatures. Blessed Alliance and Stasis Snare might be a good thing to add as well. P.S. I would only suggest the Steppe's only because you are running a lot of creatures. also if devoted crop mate is exiled you could lose easily because there is a lot of removal right now, especially board wipes. Overall I really like the deck. I'll probably make this deck and test it out.
