Dromar's Cavern Discussion

You cannot. Colour identity is based on all the mana symbols that appear on a card (barring symbols in reminder text), and applies to lands. As such, Dromar's Cavern contains and Crosis's Catacombs contains , and neither can be used in a Dimir commander deck.
I don't think you need these lands. In two colours, you can generally get by mostly using basics--you want to minimize the number of lands you're playing that enter tapped. Between some butdget fetch lands lands (Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse), and ultra-budget dual lands (Dismal Backwater, Jwar Isle Refuge), etc., you can usually build a pretty solid mana base.
I'd recomend spending a little more and investing in cards that can be immediately playable, such as Darkwater Catacombs, Drowned Catacomb, River of Tears, Sunken Hollow, Tainted Isle, and Underground River.

Not at lot I can see that I can recommend except maybe Dromar's Cavern. It has a land bounce effect so you can reuse your enters the battlefield effects for some of your lands and it covers your entire color scheme.

Thanks for your suggestions hoardofnotions!I'll tinker with my deck and try it out in my next game.
I really like the Darksteel Ingot suggestion, I'll be dropping my Obelisk of Esper for it, and I'll definitely be dropping Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer as well as I agree I don't want to give my opponents any card advantage.
Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur looks amazing. 10 mana is a lot of mana though. I find it quite difficult to pull off my 7 mana spells :( But I'll have to try him out! :)
Thanks again hoardofnotions!

Hi, I am playing a 5C Scion deck and if you want to play 5C. Land and mana base if everything. But when you focus on 3 and splash 2 it helps a lot. Some lands that can be very useful.
Cheap to buy, do not come into play tapped and you can tap a land before returning it to your hand. Also, yes pain lands are a good cheap option too.
Also if you are interested my deck is called who says 5 is too much? seems a little slow but it has proven very consistent in multiplayers and team events. At our communities and among my friends this is my deck they fear most.
hope it helps

Byuante thanks for the comment! Would also appreciate an upvote; trying to build some momentum :)
I agree with you on the curve. I can get it under 3. The suggestions you're giving me are all too expensive but the budget options are on the table! I think the general consensus is to cut the cluestones so they're out! Thanks again!
The tutors are good and I'll look for the cheaper ones to pick up. Dromar's Cavern is just nice mana fixing and goes well with the scrylands. The deserts I'll cut and the KTK lifelands are just budget options haha
What do you think about me going down to 35 lands? I've been considering that....
Again, thanks for all the help everyone! Really grateful!

In addition, Dromar's Cavern, the Cycling Deserts, and the KTK lifelands all seem like weird inclusions, though, and I'd suggest cutting them for fetches and shocks if possible, or perhaps Prairie Stream and Sunken Hollow, or honestly even more basics.

Ok, first set of substitutions with the cards I had on hand:
More changes to come. I plan to get the rest of the Maybeboard in here over the course of my next few orders. I probably should find some Signets to run in it, too.
