Yeah, the lands are not so great only because I'm too cheap to buy expensive lands. But I do own some Drowned Catacomb and they are in my other dimir deck, which is as it happens is a pure mill deck based around Consuming Aberration and friends. The mill deck is stronger, but this one is more fun to play. You can only Traumatize your friends a few times before people start to get annoyed.

I can't see the value of Terramorphic Expanse other than being able to shuffle, especially since you've got no way of returning it from your graveyard and you essentially have to waste a land drop. Why not just have 4 more basic land instead?

On the subject of what I'd replace them with though, I'd run an extra Swamp and an extra Island, and then I'd recommend 2x Drowned Catacomb to fill the hole. DC's are far more versatile, and have no cooldown if you've already got Basics in play.

Chromatic Lantern is a good call though. Augment with Spectral Searchlight if you're looking for other mana-fixers or can't get hold of a Lantern for whatever reason.

Did some editing. I think it looks fine now. I cut 2 creature-counter spells. Also, i put Drowned Catacomb as suggested.

You absolutely need 8 1-drops that enable a turn 2 ninjutsu. choose either another one drop faerie or a black evasive creature. Nightshade Stinger fits both. Use it instead of the bear.

You need no more than 7 or 8 total black sources, but you do need a lot of black. 23 lands is quite a lot, I would go to 21 or 22. Using percentages and the current deck:

You have a total of 39 blue symbols in the mana costs and 13 black symbols. So, that means 1 black source for every 3 blue ones. And there several double blue spells. So, if using 22 lands, you need 4 Aqueducts (which should really be Drowned Catacomb , they are still super cheap) and 12 islands and 6 swamps.

Obviously, that is without including Nightshade stinger, which would skew those to 8 swamps and 10 islands, since it is a 1 drop we want to cast always on turn 1.

@Didgeridooda: I always forget about Tenth Edition being different from Magic 2010 haahaa. The description I gave for M10 was meant for Tenth.

That being said, I didn't like M10 because of the Mythic Rares, especially when they did something like bump Darksteel Colossus from Rare to Mythic Rare. There was also a lot of junk rares. M10 did introduce us to the buddy lands (Drowned Catacomb et al), so that's one of its redeeming qualities.
