IAmTheWraith Okay it can be the comboed fine, but there are faster and better infinite draw combos without having the whole needing exactly seven cards in hand tacked on and none of those are banned. As for the mana acceleration what acceleration? It enters untapped and taps for one colorless. So does Archaeological Dig , Cascading Cataracts , Eldrazi Temple , Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai , and basic Wastes and with the exception of Archaeological Dig they have more utility tack to them. And I don't think it would be in every deck if it was unbanned that what everyone says about any banned card. I don't see Protean Hulk in every green deck even though he was unbanned and everyone said he would be. And a free card advantage in every deck really thats just wrong. I have at least 6 decks alone that wouldn't get the free draw unless it was in my opening hand and unless you stack or cheat it not possible to get in every opening hand. Plus not every deck will have it, and even your combo needed blue and green to make it work. What about a mono white deck or a abzan or jund deck they can't make that combo work. And as stated above unless you have blue or to a lesser extant black, drawing is limited (though every color has a some draw true) so keeping 7 cards in hand would unrealistic. And even though they have a price they are plenty of better draw cards, Pull from Tomorrow , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Horn of Plenty , Horn of Greed , Ponder and Opt just to name a few.

Dragon Arch may help you cast stuff cheaply.

Mana abilities: Cascading Cataracts and Joiner Adept

Unbender Tine can combo well and also Power Armor may help too if you are using basic lands.

Quicksilver Amulet , Cryptic Gateway , Thran Temporal Gateway , Vanquisher's Banner , Cascading Cataracts , Crystal Quarry , Thran Quarry , City of Brass , Grand Coliseum , Guildmages' Forum

These are a few suggestions that you might like. Also the converted mana cost is a little high and the land count is a little low. With this deck, you probably want around 37-40 lands. Also you will have a lot of opening hands with only high drop dragons in it. I would suggest cutting some dragons and adding mana rocks and/or more ramp spells like Explosive Vegetation , or Tempt with Discovery .

Some mana rocks: Thran Dynamo , Worn Powerstone , Gilded Lotus , etc.

It is a very good start though.

Thanks for the advice! And I was so stoked when I found Eon Hub. I love Glacial Chasm and Mystic Remora, but knew there had to be an easy way around the cumulative upkeep. Eon Hub fit that spot perfectly. I have Blighted Woodland and Temple of the False God , but wasn't sure where to squeeze them in. That, and I was afraid I would draw TOTFG in the early game, when I'd rather have something immediately usable. I should try it out though! Cascading Cataracts is gonna have to go in here. I was looking for a card that did just that. That would be crazy useful in this deck. I really appreciate it, man!

I'm really happy to see someone else making good use out of Eon Hub !

I'd recommend trying out Plasm Capture . It's a bit expensive, but it can give you a sudden surge in mana.

Blighted Woodland is basically another copy of Myriad Landscape , while Temple of the False God is another land that taps for two mana. Reliquary Tower is a good backup way to maintain no maximum handsize, just in case someone exiles kruphix on your end step (it's happened before). Ghost Quarter , Tectonic Edge , and Field of Ruin are good ways to deal with any pesky powerhouse lands like Cabal Coffers . Cascading Cataracts is a nice way to turn your floating colorless mana back into the colors you could need. Alchemist's Refuge gives your cards flash, which is especially useful if you don't want to play cards into an impending board wipe.

Hope this helps! Happy brewing!

You can add in Cryptolith Rite for another way to have your slivers to tap for mana. Other than that, 5 color mana base is pretty hard. I would say since you are going for a budget land base, you can replace all your guildgates with the tri-color lands like Arcane Sanctum , Seaside Citadel , Jungle Shrine , Crumbling Necropolis , Savage Lands , Mystic Monastery , Nomad Outpost , Sandsteppe Citadel , Opulent Palace , and Frontier Bivouac . At least they will add an additional color in comparison with the guild gates. For budget multi-color lands there are lands like Exotic Orchard and Forbidden Orchard that are decent. Unclaimed Territory , Path of Ancestry , Cascading Cataracts , Sliver Hive , Ancient Ziggurat , and Mirrodin's Core can be some options for a decent 5 color mana base.

Hope that helps!

Deadpoo111 thank you for the suggestion on Cascading Cataracts ! And yeah I thought Maze's End would be another win con since the deck doesn't have any "hard" win cons.

mrdehring Thank you for the suggestion of Chamber Sentry definitely seems like an auto include! I have a Nim Deathmantle in my golgari deck so it'll be something I keep on my sideboard, alongside my Walking Ballista as an infinite mana win condition. I guess I could always use it to to just play my hand out--but I would probably want a way where every artifact I play draws me a card--because then I could just play my entire deck onto the field and that seems pretty cool--so I'll be on the lookout for how to do that.

Also thank you for the upvotes!
