Deserted Temple isn't legendary either, so you can always copy it with your Vesuva . Two deserted temples with a Nykthos and say 8 devotion = 18 white mana. I always run deserted temple with Nykthos and/or Cabal Coffers, in any deck.

Aethaleon Deserted Temple is super interesting. Ty

You're also missing the Deserted Temple to go with your Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx .

Helldozer was initially dismissed, but being able to pay to destroy two lands because the first one was nonbasic makes this work for this list.

Imagine getting a bunch of black mana from Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth plus Cabal Coffers plus Thespian's Stage plus Vesuva plus Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx plus Deserted Temple and then dumping that mana all into Helldozer... The salt would be unreal.

As for the land-count, I was surprised myself, and yet the last few games with my metagroup usually had me ahead of the game with crazy consistent openers that either had my dropping 3 land to Burgeoning before my T2, or iterations of the Moxen, Dorks and a couple land to help jumpstart everything. I did round the count off to 30 just now with the addition of Deserted Temple to untap Gaea's Cradle.

Contamination + Trading Post/Bitterblossom/Reassembling Skeleton = Soft lock if you're into losing friends like me! :)

Deserted Temple + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers Rings of Brighthearth+ a lot of swamps = Infinite Black Mana

All of those lands are great on their own and rings goes well with your commander.

I thought of a couple other things, sorry don't mean to spam your comments. I should really upgrade my account so I can at least edit things within the last 5 minutes.

Anyways I thought up a few land suggestions, Ancient Tomb, Eye of Ugin, Mirrorpool, Deserted Temple, Homeward Path, Mage-Ring Network, Terrain Generator, Temple of the False God Shrine of the Forsaken Gods and Wastes.

Some of these I suggested specifically since you had some eldrazi, but other than that there are a couple others like Terrain Generator, Homeward Path, Mage-Ring Network, etc that have other uses. You of course don't need all of these obviously, but a few I feel might help, as long as it does not detract from too many basics. You should have at least if anything maybe 1 Wastes as its a land that can be searched for and it might be helpful in that rare occasion you might want a colorless source for your World Breaker. Also a Wastes would be helpful if you do dceide to use Mirrorpool at all.

One more thing, Nissa, Vital Force if you want more things that care about lands, than she would be a good choice.

I gave a bunch of cards to think about and so feel free to ask for suggestions what might be able to be swapped out, and I will try to answer when I have more time a bit later.

IMO I would do the following.

Cut the following:

  1. Typhoid Rats

  2. Deserted Temple (not worth using your second tutor for) (Unless you own one)

  3. Gauntlet of Power (Get Extraplanar Lens instead. Its cheaper and better tbh)

  4. Dark Ritual

  5. Vampire Nighthawk (idk i think he is good in our meta to discourage attackers, but hmmmm lol)

Add or Consider:

  1. Onyx Talisman (full cycle but you can only depend on Black, IDK it seems ok)

  2. Boompile

  3. Unstable Obelisk

  4. Nevinyrral's Disk

  5. Perilous Vault
