Mana Confluence is better than City of Brass. i've never seen anyone use a card that wouldnt prevent you from paying life in modern, but i HAVE seen cards that allow you to tap an opponents permanent being played in modern. if your opponent uses such a card they can tap down your City of Brass to damage you.

for a better and still cheap 5 color mana base I would suggest City of Brass and pain lands. They can be gotten on the cheap and are effective

This deck looks very well tuned and cool! Maybe you could improve your mana base a little by replacing a couple of basic lands with City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Reflecting Pool, Tarnished Citadel, Ash Barrens and Abundant Growth. Since your deck is fairly aggressive, your life total isn't a big factor and you can afford to run a couple of lands that hurt you, as long as they guarantee your mana works out.

@That1guy69 - To make it budget, I would 4 Noble Hierarch, 1 Spellskite, 1 Razorverge Thicket, and 3 Copperline Gorge. Then I would put in 3 Elvish Mystic, 2 Utopia Tree, and 4 City of Brass.

These changes lower the price of the deck by nearly $300.

City of Brass Mana Confluence Reflecting Pool would be much better than mirrodins core, rupture spire, or transguild promenade. also try Collected Company and AEther Vial. you also need Blur Sliver as it combo's really well with Manaweft Sliver that you also need. run fetch lands to ensure you have a swamp for Sedge Sliver, and try Metallic Mimic. this deck could use a lot of work. check out my own sliver deck

looks like a solid deck. for the budgetification:
you could run Consuming Aberration over Lord of Extinction.
also i think that fastlands like Darkslick Shores are on average, expensive taplands. you could run City of Brass instead.

Brother apologies again I'm finally getting around to this. So far I'm liking your direction and all the amendments!

Here are a couple of suggestions:

  1. Make room for more pain lands. City of Brass, Caves of Koilos, Battlefield Forge or Mana Confluence will help you cast Breya far more than Inventors Fair, or Vault of the Archangel. Urborg may not even be thar useful here, and depending on your meta could be advantangeous to your opponents if they run anything with . I ended up taking out Academy Ruins as well as the deck shifted towards a more agressive build.

For creatures, I'd say think of other tutors outside of Sidisi. If you're on a budget, perhaps Dark Petition? I'd also consider some removal like Toxic Deluge.

Frantic Search is another draw effect you could really make use of.
