Yeah, thanks Sarkhan420X! That’s exactly what I meant by dorks; I should’ve been more clear.

The problem with getting non-tapped lands, as I’m sure you’ve already noticed, is that they tend to be (very) expensive because every deck wants them. Shock lands are at a low right now because of the recent reprint, and if you can I advise picking up a copy of some of those soon. Check lands may be a good addition; I see you’re running Drowned Catacomb , but picking up a Glacial Fortress or Hinterland Harbor can be helpful. Lands like Exotic Orchard aren’t bad, but I just checked and apparently Forbidden Orchard has jumped in price again.

Five-color decks are tough to get a good land-base for; you can easily spend $500+ and hardly notice the improvement. I suggest thinking of your deck as vase green, and utilizing green ramp spells to find you other colors. For the first few turns, playing basic forests from your hand is OK if you also have mana rocks/dorks/ramp that can get you the other colors you need.

Last thing I have to say on this point is that I think Prismatic Vista , from Modern Horizons, will probably tank a good amount. I do tend to be wrong about these things, but I would be shocked if it stays anywhere NEAR $30. So keep an eye on the price, at least for a while; it is a strictly better Evolving Wilds .

You have more courage than me, building a five-color deck without proxies.

You should definitely consider running the buddy check lands ( Dragonskull Summit , Sulfur Falls , and Drowned Catacomb ) over any of the ETB-tapped dual lands you're currently are running. They are not very expensive compared to other rare dual lands. Also consider running the slow check lands ( Smoldering Marsh and Sunken Hollow ), as these will also be an upgrade to the many gain-life tap lands you're currently running. You'll find that these alone will make your deck more consistent overall.

And, if you get the chance (or budget, as I assume this is a budget deck theme deck) it wouldn't hurt to invest in the Shocklands as well ( Steam Vents , Blood Crypt , and Watery Grave ). But the above check lands are pretty cheap and will serve the deck well enough!

Narset is easier to cast with 4 copies of Drowned Catacomb . Lol

Hey there - thank you for helping out! How about this:
Sigarda, Heron's Grace
Expansion / Explosion
Bone Dragon
Dromoka's Command
Scavenger Grounds
Momir Vig, Simic Visionary - this is FTV foil, so let me know if that's not what you were looking for
and Drowned Catacomb (XLN)

for $11.50? I knocked a few bucks off of TCGMarket price for each, and gave you a good price on Catacomb because I have so many. I can ship it today PWE, or if you want to pay $3 for tracked I'll do that. My PayPal is [email protected] Let me know!

This deck looks sweet but 27 lands feels like a few too many so think like cutting 1 Drowned Catacomb and 1 Dragonskull Summit for 2 more Dreadhorde Invasion would be a good call. But either way awesome deck!
