CoreGon, these are the very early stages of the newest version. Black may be added back in :) Energy alone can just about support the fourth color of black, but I'm finding consistency issues. I'm in the process of trying to make the fourth color work better using Four-Color Saheeli as a template, that deck is four colors and relies on energy and it's using both Attune with Aether and Oath of Nissa to get and find the lands it needs. I'm mimicking this with a version of Dark Bant.

You're right using the fourth color will make it easier to max out on converge, five colors for both Skyrider Elf and Woodland Wanderer, but we still have to worry about consistency of the manabase which three color Bant is much better at. Bant is better mana consistency while still giving us the ability to converage Skyrider and Wanderer, maybe not with five colors as easily, but four yes.

Here's my new idea for Dark Bant, using Four-Color Saheeli as a template. Here's the list so far:

This leaves room for 9x more cards, some combination of Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Verdurous Gearhulk, Tireless Tracker, Fatal Push and Tamiyo, Field Researcher. This is too many different cards something is going to be left out, but I'm not sure what yet.

It's also possible that we only splash black as a fourth color to better converge and just play a Swamp which Attune can get or Oath can find.

At first glance, I'd recommend Botanical Sanctum, Yavimaya Coast, Underground River, Llanowar Wastes, and Darkslick Shores.

At their worst, Fastlands operate like Shard/Wedge lands, and don't slow you down a turn with bounce lands. At their best you've a dual land early on. The Pain Lands are usually just great for any multi-coloured Deck.

Tarnished Citadel bolts you, but it's worth it if you're really in need of the colour.

But looking at your curve and colour distribution, it shouldn't be a problem. You could run Inspiring Vantage and Botanical Sanctum over all the messy Shadowlands. Have you ever tested a 4-colour deck?

Anyway, I'm just basing it off my Tamiyo, Field Researcher deck which tries to achieve the same Vigilance stuff for card draw. I could probably adapt that to this once I know the set better.

Good stuff :)

Botanical Sanctum and Blooming Marsh in place of 2 shock lands? As for the sideboard... Painful Truths? I would cut 1 Mana Leak and either Scavenging Ooze or Tasigur, the Golden Fang. Nice deck. +1

If you are running Unsubstantiate, Topplegeist and Take into Custody you probably don't need Subjugator Angel. Instead you could try a bit more damage like Aethersquall Ancient and Aetherwind Basker. It looks like you are using a lot of energy so I would also take out Kujar Seedsculptor and put in Servant of the Conduit from your maybeboard. If you are willing to spend a little bit more you check out Botanical Sanctum and Aetherworks Marvel. If you want a planeswalker you could try Dovin Baan, he is a cheaper one that can still put on some pressure.

Came for the Infect; stayed for the price tag. Very nice!

Some more budget options:

Some more pricey options, but IMO totally worth it:

Draw well!

Grasslands, Bad River, Flood Plain, Bant Panorama, Esper Panorama and Krosan Verge are super budget fetches. I would re-include Murmuring Bosk, because of it's forest type it is essentially a fetch-able Sandsteppe Citadel. The KTK block fetches are at a low right now, with all three in Atraxa's colors at $10-15 (Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Windswept Heath. For more U/G lands Yavimaya Coast, Lumbering Falls, Opulent Palace, Hinterland Harbor, Botanical Sanctum and Temple of Mystery are great budget options. Breeding Pool itself though is under $10 right now so I'd jump on that.

thanks for the response QuantumSkies

I like the mana base you wrote except it feels a little heavily weighted towards blue mana for this deck when I need white and green far more consistantly. I will play around with some proxy lists and see how the mana base plays for me but I will probably be swapping the Botanical Sanctum for the Razorverge Thicket.
