Dimir Aqueduct Discussion

You're right that Dimir Aqueduct is superior for triggering the landfall multiple times. Also, the extra mana is useful the next turn. I like the way Phenax, God of Deception works with this deck but I'm struggling with what I would take out. Is the same with Dreamborn Muse I like the mechanic but does it take away from the efficiency?

Just some thoughts in case they help build off of what Immortalized said or provide any other useful things to look at:

Draw

There are a lot of other draw cards too that you might consider:

And countless more. In a deck like this though there's a lot of value to be had in something like Phyrexian Arena since 1 life per upkeep is no biggie with Oloro around

Removal

Here's some other good removal to think about:

Slow Down Taxes

Here are some cards that can really halt your opponent's aggression:

Taxing Creatures

Some other creatures worth mentioning that tax an opponent's life:

Other Notables

Here's some other cards that are worth noting:

  • Pristine Talisman combos well if you have Oloro out (Tap to gain life, spend the mana to draw the card and cost each opponent 1 life)
  • Baleful Strix can be great utility in this kind of deck
  • Reliquary Tower Is always great in draw decks

Additional Thoughts

One card I'd definitely recommend ditching is Azor's Elocutors.

Other cards I see that I'd consider removing if it was me:

I used to play an Oloro deck as well (albeit it with a very different affinity ) using a ton more artifacts and some fun combinations around Darksteel Forge and Nevinyrral's Disk . He's a great commander and a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy the deck and can find something useful in any of my suggestions.

Good luck and happy hunting!

Instead of Drowned Catacomb, have you considered Dimir Aqueduct to return lands and trigger Hedron Crab a few extra times up to indefinitely by bouncing them off each other? Also, a Phenax, God of Deception couldn't hurt since you'll be sitting around with your comfy fort. He'll mostly just add an extra 2 or more cards at the end of your opponent's turns, but he also creates a win-con with Consuming Aberration if you have 1/2 of their library in their graveyards.

Yeah, I'm definitely aware the the 6-mana drop could be a problem, but I think in the event I can get one or two out, its basically game for the opponent (all removals aside). I'll keep an eye on it.

I think I will stick with Breaking, between the Dimir Aqueduct and Evolving Wilds I should have enough mana diversity.

Out of curiosity, whats the big advantage of Ghost Quarter? I get that it mills the opponents deck a bit more, but is it worth sacrificing a land to mill one card off the opponents library?

I frankly enjoy them. I find you can get maximum benefit from them if you also use them in conjunction with the bounce dual lands like Dimir Aqueduct or Simic Growth Chamber. That way you get a lot of extra scry, although with the 'enters tapped' part of both lands, you may want to invest in an Amulet of Vigor or something to that effect.

you are way too thin on lands, and you have no need for a blue mana source so I would definitely be cutting the Dimir Aqueduct. you are relying on a quarter of your lands to hit the board so that your big beater Vampire Nocturnus can go off, you need more guarantee that he will hit the board. so cut 2Guul Draz Vampire for more lands as well. also id cut a Vampire Assassin and add another Gifted Aetherborn see how that treats ya. also, cut the Elixir of Immortality and an Accorder's Shield for 2 Feast of Blood if you can afford it you should also be finding ways to incorporate Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet hope this helps. As one vampire lover to another.
