Ever thought of trying out Contamination with your general? +1

I LOVE YOUR DECK!! +1 from me!

Thoughts on Trading Post and Mirage Mirror? I use the post to stop my artifacts from getting exiled, make tokens to block with and/or sacrifice the token for artifact recursion. Lastly the token can be used for a Contamination lock. Mirage mirror is just CRAZY versatility which I think can serve this deck quite well.

What is your plan to deal with artifacts and enchantments? From a glance, all I see if Karn. I usually find All Is Dust, Nevinyrral's Disk, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, and Oblivion Stone can help with this (albeit at risk of getting rid of your stuff as well).

Another interesting way to remedy this weakness is with Spine of Ish Sah which you can sacrifice to Claws of Gix or Trading Post.

What are your thoughts of Rings of Brighthearth for the deck? I don't know about your meta's rules for infinite combos, but you can get infinite black mana with Coffers + Urborg + Deserted temple + A couple more lands + Rings.

No Demonic Tutor, Beseech the Queen or Diabolic Tutor? Is that because your commander is a tutor?

Also if you are running the leyline you might want to run Helm of Obedience if you like destroying people's will to play magic.

Some budget land ideas as well as some ideas to support your largely basic landbase, starting with the latter

With Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and/or a lot of basic swamps in which you already have, Bubbling Muck becomes a powerhouse ritual often outperforming Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual,

same goes for basic islands and High Tide, easily ramping you to victory at very low $ and mana cost

Alternatively, you could take advantage of basic lands and artifact mana and run things like Price of Progress, Blood Moon, Back to Basics or Contamination to punish the use of nonbasic lands

Some budget yet value non-basics to consider:

Crypt of Agadeem

Youre gonna want snow covered swamps since you are playing Lens. This is because if you imprint a regular swamp then anyone else who is playing black will also get double mana.

Cauldron of Souls

Grim Haruspex

Nether Traitor

With Mikaeus, Walking Ballista and Triskelion produce infinite damage

cards like Contamination can keep opponents from disrupting you

Enral Wow fail, that was obvious. Sorry, taking some new meds. This decklist seems solid. Might I possibly recommend Contamination as it can create a soft lock with Bitterblossom, moreover, it can stop opponents from playing anything other than colorless or black spells. Yawgmoth's Will for recursion?

my playgroup really doesn't like black and think that it isn't a strong color on its own. This is my way of saying they're totally wrong. The deck's goal is to get Contamination out and make them only play black while not hurting me at all
