Explorer's Scope Discussion

With your reasonably high mana curve, as well as the mana hungry commander, you should probably include even more mana sources. Golgari Signet, Rakdos Signet etc seem really useful here since the Brothers can later use them as fodder for their ability.
I also suggest Tireless Tracker and Pharika, God of Affliction, both provide useful tokens for the Brothers' abilities, and are solid cards on their own. Also, Illusionist's Bracers is a great combo with your commander, i think you should add that.
Some other cards that fit well into your plan: Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast, Rancor, Smokestack, Solemn Simulacrum.
If you want to improve the deck further, power cards like Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Sylvan Library, Cabal Coffers, Ancient Tomb and Bloom Tender should probably all find their way into your list.
Some of your card choices seem suboptimal: Necroskitter is neither particularly powerful nor does it synergize with your plan. Infiltration Lens, Explorer's Scope, Shield of the Avatar, Rockslide Elemental and Vorapede are rather bad cards, and Unwinding Clock, Bow of Nylea and Liliana of the Dark Realms don't have enough powerful synergies in your deck to really justify their inclusion.

A little expensive, but would be great:

Fair enough. Here are some suggestions for cards you could cut.

Devoted Caretaker and Elgaud Shieldmate could go because this kind of protection isn't really what you want in this format. Certainly people run single target removal, but they run a lot more mass removal and you don't want to waste a card on narrow protection like this. I would suggest running some Swords if you got the budget for it.

I can see why Thada Adel, Acquisitor is in this deck, but I have played with this card a lot and it is not as good as it seems. Against a fair number of decks, this only gets Sol Ring and Lightning Greaves, and while that isn't bad, it is quite slow. That together with the fact it is legendary means it doesn't synergize well.

Notorious Thong isn't really worth it unless you can reliably trigger that prowl effect and you just don't have enough rogues.

Voidwalk, Explorer's Scope, Rogue's Gloves, and Ophidian Eye don't do enough.

schaning27 I know you looked at my deck and I have a few questions for you. I am really not sure if I should run more or less lands. I have token out some auras and tutors like Three Dreams because my deck does not run a a lot of auras. I can also see that you are not running Weathered Wayfarer, Land Tax, or Explorer's Scope (basically, do I need less ramp?).

 You also have way less creatures then me, which is not a bad thing. I'm just wondering, how can you choose what to cut and what to keep. I have a really hard time choosing if I should keep said card or not (especially for equipment, not sure if I should add more or less).Then, there is the mana curve. I tested my deck out little bit (on tappedout) and the deck seemed fine, except there were two problems. 1) too many creatures 2) I was never really able to unload and play a bunch of cards (probably a land problem)How can I test my deck out against other players? Honestly, it will be very ineffective to print proxys for all of those cards. I don't have a ton of money to spend and the best way to see what is good or not is to test the deck.Anyways, I am probably going to add some more nonbasic lands, remove Weathered Wayfarer and Explorer's Scope so I can add Thran Dynamo. Also, how many board wipes and pieces of removal should I run?

I like it, from personal experience Mask of Avacyn has been a solid investment every time... For some reason I keep pulling it lately. I also pulled Explorer's Scope theoretically it should be solid, & I do run plenty of lands but it just proved to be too low impact, & usually when I play a gamble type of card I like the potential payoff to be a little higher

Landfall is always a blast to mess with :) this looks nice and solid. I would probably add a few things to take care of enchantments/artifacts, just because green is so good at it :)

As for more landfall? Kodama's Reach is a favourite of mine. A tad pricy, maybe, but worth it. Explorer's Scope is golden, and Sword of the Animist is straight up amazing!

Hey, cool idea for a deck. I've been meaning to try it out myself but haven't gotten to it yet. Anyways here are some cards I'd consider:

Myriad Landscape, Ghost Quarter and obviously Cabal Coffers.

I personally like Explorer's Scope but it's not for everyone.

Also Storm Cauldron and Ghirapur Orrery may be fun? All I got anyways good luck!
