Esper Panorama Discussion
1 week ago
I would recomend running a Mortuary Mire. With aqueduct bounce it can bring back enough cretures to matter. The opportunity cost of running one instead of a swamp is low and it can help coming back after an initial bout of creature removal or control if the game goes long.
All of the cards above are recomendations with varying levels of utility. What I would slot in a hearbeat is some sort of fetch-land. In either of the three flavours they come in pauper: Ash Barrens, Terramorphic Expanse or Esper Panorama, I am partial to Ash Barrens as it can act as a janky mana-fix by tutoring the color you are short on and can add colorless if you could use another mana and don't need more colored mana for anything. The land tutors help thin out your deck, with this strategy you can't afford many dead draws. What draw/Scry effects you have can help keep a hand full of action but I have a feeling they may not be enough (if you have playtested the deck that obviously overrides this last comment).

I would also play Esper Panorama over Bant Panorama, since it can get 2 of your colors and Bant only gets Islands.
Any other advice I could give would be dependent on how competitive this deck will be and how big your budget is.

I really like the idea behinnd that deck (I play something similar, only mine is just Dimir) my tip would be to a) lose the Thought Scour and perhaps replace it with removal-spells like Unsubstantiate or DismemberAlso perhaps consider replacing Esper Panorama with a simple Terramorphic Expanse as it doesn't cost mana and also helps you trigger your Crabs. Other than that...I really like that list to be honest..if you can you might try to squeeze in Archive Trap and/or Fraying Sanity
Hope that helps a bit...

This is just a start FYI
Note: Add more lands as you should have at least 30+ and "Cycling" is not doing anything for this deck other than spending your manna and slowing you down, cards like Diabolic Tutor and Fabricate or Kuldotha Forgemaster will cost you close to the same and get you exactly what you want.

Slaughter - seems good with extort stuff
Esper Panorama - more fetch lands!
Consuming Vapors - kill spell and life gain
Well of Lost Dreams - card draw!
I hope you get to enjoy the fun of finding hidden gems in all the cards you have sitting around! Let me know if you want to debate any cards!!!

You should also be running at a minimum Command Tower and Sol Ring (these have been printed into the ground thanks to all the commander product out there), however you also have cards like Drowned Catacomb, Hinterland Harbor and Woodland Cemetery which aren't expensive. Terramorphic Expanse, Evolving Wilds, Jund Panorama, Esper Panorama and Bant Panorama all act as budget fetches and work well with Splendid Reclamation. That will help your mana base.

For cheap mana fixing (<$1):
Gift of Paradise
Pyramid of the Pantheon
Cuts I'd suggest:
Gideon's Lawkeeper for Journey to Nowhere
Manaplasm for Managorger Hydra or Forgotten Ancient
Ondu Giant for Wood Elves
Rhox War MonkSengir Vampire for Archfiend of Depravity or Desecration Demon
Serra Angel for Serra Avenger
Stormblood Berserker for Sulfuric Vortex
Circle of Flame for Mizzium Mortars
Glory of Warfare for Chromatic Lantern
Honor of the Pure for Spear of Heliod, if you really want an anthem effect.
Frost Breath for Mana Leak
Guardians' Pledge for Sakura-Tribe Elder (you really dont have enough white creatures for this effect)
Incinerate & Lightning Bolt for Terminate and Murder
Plummet for Oblivion Ring
Titanic Growth for Harmonize
War Report for Day of Judgment
Exploding Borders for Burnished Hart
Traveler's Amulet for Wayfarer's Bauble
I suggest choosing a theme for your deck. Right now it seems to be pulling in too many directions.
Want to cast and swing with Progenitus? Include cards that grant haste like Temur Ascendancy.
Want to play fun multicolored shenanigans? Include whatever value you like.
Want to use overcosted enchantment cycles? Include the Shrines.
Focusing will allow you to better determine what your deck wants. Regardless, I recommend playing heavy green to maximize your ability to mana ramp.

Interesting idea, and with almost all of your creatures possessing flying, you could get some serious use out of Subterranean Tremors. Also, one of the Takir tri-lands may help you. Nomad Outpost. I'd suggest replacing Esper Panorama. I'm not entirely sure if that's legal in a commander deck of different colours, but either way with Nomad Outpost, you're going to get full benefit from it.
