2 Fetid Pools @1.59

2 Satyr Wayfinder @ 0.15

1 Ramunap Excavator @ 2.99 =4.88

-2 Dismal Backwater -2 Sultai Soothsayer -1 Varolz, the Scar-Striped

at some point we will want another Ramunap Excavator and maybe even a Crucible of Worlds and then be able to Ghost Quarter people out of lands

Well, it's commander, so it's slow and you can use lands that enter tapped and are budget friendly. Dismal Backwater , Dimir Aqueduct , Dimir Guildgate , Submerged Boneyard , Jwar Isle Refuge , Frost Marsh and Salt Marsh are budget. Fetid Pools , Underground River , and Sunken Hollow are also good options. Check out http://managathering.com/duallands/Dimir.html for more options.

As for mana rocks. You'll need them. Commander always needs them. I like Worn Powerstone , Thran Dynamo , Hedron Archive , Everflowing Chalice , and Astral Cornucopia . Dimir Signet is really good.

I gotta say that you need a Rise of the Dark Realms . It's a bomb.

Your deck has some requirements, so you should only run nonbasic lands and mana rocks that can add somehow. Some cheap suggestions are: Reliquary Tower , Unclaimed Territory (I see you have a lot of wizards), Exotic Orchard (usually tap for all your colors), Darkwater Catacombs , Sunken Hollow , Shivan Reef , Underground River , Fetid Pools , Temple of Epiphany , Temple of Deceit instead of Crypt of the Eternals , Rupture Spire , Vivid Crag , Vivid Marsh , Temple of the False God and some basic lands. // Unstable Obelisk is really expensive for what it does - Reality Shift do the job cheaply. Archaeomancer is great for recursion.

Your deck gives me a chance to suggest a card the I've wanted to use, but never quite seen the right setup for, but more on that in a bit...

Conventional wisdom is that you shouldn't mix creatures with infect and those without, outside of mana dorks. It is also that you shouldn't rely on auras, as they give your opponent a 2-for-1. Invisible Stalker though will wear any aura quite happily since it has hexproof, it also can't be blocked. A card like Slippery Scoundrel might also be ok, though 10 permanents is a lot. Neither of these were the card I mentioned in my opening, that card is Elusive Tormentor  Flip this card is interesting because it transforms into a 0/1 hexproof, indestructible, can't be blocked creature and can then be flipped back to deliver the 4 damage. It doesn't lose any auras attached when it transforms, so that means a 4/4 infect and the gag is you can transform it back to Insidious Mist in response to your opponents removal.

There is also a decent draw spell with proliferate Tezzeret's Gambit and proliferate on a stick Thrummingbird, both of these are worth consideration. 27 land is a lot, 23-5 would be fine and this gives you more slots. Your also wanting to play control, so Temple of Deceit or Fetid Pools is a lot better than Submerged Boneyard, Halimar Depths might also be worth considering. Moving on, a pump spell might be a good idea Virulent Swipe or Supernatural Stamina for example.

There are 2 cards in modern that wreck an infect plan Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Solemnity , so be aware and don't let these resolve... That's it from me, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

Demarge on Tasigur's Combo Buddies!!!!

I am unsure as to where you'd make changes, it's possible you may have too many 4-5 mana tutors and maybe some of your mana dork creatures maybe a bit weak, if you look through the linked tasigur lists on previous comments you'll see both lists look wildly different, for edh BUG gives a massive assortment of powerful options.

now that I look at your list a bit harder you may want some stronger draw engine, Training Grounds with tasigur makes his effect much stronger as well as work well with deadeye and palinchron when you get that. Life from the Loam and the one mana cycle lands with the Fetid Pools (all of which is probably at their cheapest they'll be for a long while) have been my choice (course loam is the slippery slope of wanting every form of fetch land and strip mine lands you can pack for added value).

Hmm and now I should stop with also suggesting the idea of Seedborn Muse and Eldritch Evolution. Muse with tasigur is just powerful, every opponent's turn they don't do something for you to react just means more card draw. evolution lets you take advantage of tasigur being a cheap to cast commander with high cmc, you can get up to an 8 drop, you can also turn solemn into a sphinx. I know I should stop, but Dark Ritual works really well in getting tasigur out early, for my list all I need is a fetchland for black, Gitaxian Probe and ritual to get him out turn 1. (also probe is fun to use, you can lie about how good the person's hand is since it's look at and not reveal, I think I could go on and on for ideas...)

Vivid Marsh is a sweet purple land xD and Fetid Pools has some purple sky. Phyrexian Delver is purplish... Void Winnower? Arcane Denial is pretty purple.

Painful Truths isn't good. But purple Divination is okay, right? Wait that is also purple. Rhystic Study has a purple couch thing. Bean bag or something. Dismember has purple... things, and Entomb is pretty purple. One of the Force of Will arts is pretty purple. Opt and Remand are also purple.

Do you know the number of times I have written pruple just to change it to purple.
