City of Brass Discussion

SideBae on Yarok, but I'm Paper

I mean, I'm surprised no one mentioned any cantrips yet... Ponder and Preordain are pretty easily two of the best cards in EDH (there's a reason they're banned in Modern), so I think you should stick them in there. multimedia's suggestion of a Flash line is a good plan, and adding the cantrips can help you find it (or whatever combo). Since you're not running fetchlands, I don't think Brainstorm is a good idea. If you do run things like Polluted Delta , it gets REALLY good.

I would also like to point out that, being as creature heavy as you are, you may have trouble with boardwipes. I think you should consider backup cards, like Living Death or Heroic Intervention , since they'll let you survive if you get hit with a Toxic Deluge or Supreme Verdict .

I like that you're running Deathrite Shaman and Birds of Paradise , but you should run some other dorks as well. Arbor Elf is good, especially with duals like your Overgrown Tomb . I'm also a big fan of Elves of Deep Shadow or the classical-era Fyndhorn Elves / Llanowar Elves / Elvish Mystic . Running dorks gets your general down that much faster, meaning your deck overall becomes exponentially more powerful.

If you run the dorks, you can cut cards like Chromatic Lantern in order to make Collector Ouphe viable. Collector Ouphe is a brutal card, especially since you can find it off of your Green Sun's Zenith .

You're running a lot of basics for a tri-color deck without Back to Basics or Blood Moon . There're some cards you may want to look into, like Mana Confluence , City of Brass , Reflecting Pool ... These'll smooth out your mana nicely.

Efficient counterspells can help protect your general and slow down your opponents. I suggest considering some of the following: Spell Snare , Spell Pierce , Delay , Dispel , Swan Song , Veil of Summer , Narset's Reversal or even Mental Misstep , depending upon your meta.

You could potentially run Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to help add a lot of mana if needed,

I’d recommend adding the like of City of Brass Mana Confluence to help fix mana and Exotic Orchard as you’re running 3 colours I can’t see you playing at a table where at least 2 of those aren’t available to you. You could just cut 3 basics to add those 3 in.

Kambal, Consul of Allocation could be of some use to you as well.

I like the idea of the deck, +1

A less powerful City of Brass .

Create a more reasonably-powered version of an underpowered card.

Boomcat12B I totally agree on the front of tapped lands (though certain taplands have a purpose, such as Mortuary Mire for recursion). The issue at hand is that I want to keep this deck as budget as possible to make it accessible, and for me that means keeping it under $300. Sadly good lands are stupidly expensive, so I purposefully excluded most of them. Also, I already did run Blood Crypt and Graven Cairns . But I do think I may swap out City of Brass for Sulfurous Springs as it brings the price down by about $2.

I will definitely look to include the Sunscorched Desert , ping damage adds up and can be underappreciated.

The Dualcaster Mage + Heat Shimmer combo is actually one that I initially considered and dismissed for this deck, so for now I will continue to forego it for now.

TetrAggressive I agree that the crawler is powerful if it hits the field with Anje, but I don't currently have any creature's I would want to cut for the include. For instance, Archfiend of Ifnir is the same CMC, but it plays off the discard, as opposed to the draw.
