I've been on a mono-color kick lately and wanted to do a lands theme, so, this build hit the spot. I did my own iteration since I already had about 60 of the cards. I don't have Candelabra of Tawnos , Gaea's Cradle , Three Visits , Bazaar of Baghdad , or City of Traitors .
I did some digging through the internet and my collection. How do you feel about Emergence Zone to execute the Food Chain combo at instant speed ? This deck is clearly optimized imo but since I don't have access to all of the pieces, I've found Krosan Restorer to work well with any 'enters tapped' issues other players may encounter, opinion?

Don't forget about the Gaea's Cradle angle though, there are some hilarious fun and janky Rube Goldberg combo lines with Summer Bloom and Lotus Cobra that require a land like it. City of Traitors and Ancient Tomb both come with their own separate issues on that front and having 2 creatures around was basically assured if the combo was online.

Hey man, sweet deck! Just wondering if you had any thoughts on how to make this a more budget-friendly list? My meta is mostly budget cedh decks without all the fast mana. I currently need to replace City of Traitors , Lion's Eye Diamond , Mox Diamond , Mox Opal , and Mana Crypt .
Do you have any thoughts on how to do this? Are there worse versions of the cards that would work or would it be better to add in more card draw effects to increase consistency and get to the combo lines that remain?
Thanks for your thoughts and looking forward to more videos!

You're going to have to run a lot of symmetrical effects (hit all players) and then run cards to get around them yourself. In a 4 player pod, if you 1 for 1 trade cards from hand for opponents lands, you're going to be really far behind. You start with 7 cards, while your opponents collectively have 21 cards. 1 for 1 trades are not the way to go about building this deck.
Now, some ways to negate the drawback
- Boros Garrison and other bouncelands -> lets you get more from untapping just 1 land, and the bounce resets a land to enter untapped again
- Lands that tap for 2+ mana -> Ancient Tomb City of Traitors Gaea's Cradle most of these are expensive-ish. Also check out depletion lands Remote Farm its a full cycle and they cheap.
- Permanent untap effects -> Seedborn Muse and similar
- Lots of artifact or creature based mana. Signets and Talismans are great in five color budget.
Next, some cards that destroy lands or hate on lands. Armageddon Boil Choke Flashfires Acid Rain Ravages of War Destructive Force Contamination Blood Moon Magus of the Moon Tsabo's Web Omen of Fire Strip Mine Wasteland Impending Disaster Tectonic Break Ruination Wildfire
Then we run some cards that let us recur lands, or like when lands break Ramunap Excavator Crucible of Worlds Life from the Loam Terravore The Gitrog Monster Titania, Protector of Argoth Splendid Reclamation
Add some lands matter cards, some ramp, and some good beaters, and you have a deck.

@ ritz_crackaz : well, depends on what you are missing, but if it is something like - Mox Diamond , - Mox Pearl , - Mana Crypt , - City of Traitors , I think you would want to add replacement points in Sol Ring and Strip Mine if you have access to them. Even Mana Vault could be okay but not necessary IMO. Lotus Petal is another option for fast-mana alternatives.
If you wanted some other options for replacements for spells in the deck, I love Reality Smasher for some cheese and cards like Fiend Hunter and Banisher Priest can be solid. There's a pretty big list of great hate-bears that aren't in this list as well, like Vryn Wingmare and Sanctum Prelate . In the right meta, those cards are bonkers. Really stoked on the new card Charming Prince from Throne of Eldraine as well...

Fatal Push, Underground River, and Mental Misstep are under $5 dollars, so I'm not going to give replacements on those, but for Ancient Tomb , City of Traitors , Glimmervoid , Inkmoth Nexus , Mox Opal , and Mox Diamond , I'd replace those with 3 Islands and a Swamp and add a River of Tears and Spire of Industry .
For Force of Will , I'd use Steel Sabotage , it acts as an occasional counter and protection for your artifacts if you bounce them in response to removal, or to reuse them in case of Renaming a new card with Revoker or getting another cast trigger on Sai, etc.
