Fire-Lit Thicket Discussion

I think you may want to be a bit more careful with the phrase "price is no issue." It's one thing to say you're willing to spend a couple hundred bucks to pack in some real firepower, but if you tell folks there's no ceiling on this Wonkavtor I can (and will!) go ahead and suggest a $1000 in mana base upgrades.
Shocks - Blood Crypt, Stomping Ground, Overgrown Tomb
Shocks are very strong in EDH because the damage they do is mitigated by starting at 40 life, and it's an option you elect as needed. They also boast land types, which makes them ramp targets
- Mana Crypt - If you have the cash this is an auto include; it's a 2nd Sol Ring
- Worn Powerstone - Strong in any deck with a moderate to high CMC
- Kodama's Reach - A second Cultivate, which is good enough to want two of
- Skyshroud Claim, Hunting Wilds, Ranger's Path - If you have duals with the "Forest" type these all become very powerful
- Tempt with Discovery - Hits nonbasics, the more opponents that bite the more it benefits you
- Ulvenwald Hydra - Ramp on legs, hits nonbasics
You can save a good deal of money and cut all the / lands without hurting yourself much since the deck is mostly , and ramp lets you fix. Though they're still strictly better than just a straight Swamp or Mountain. That said, even at 50% green spells that's not enough reason to be running Emerald Medallion over basically any rock.
Alright, that about covers it for the mana base. I've run out of suggestion boxes so I'll break this into two posts.

A serious comment:
Okay, like the deck, but it's best plays are fast, Noble Hierarch is an Elvish Mystic that can pump in this deck, and this deck really needs the turn one Birds of Paradise, it allows red, and though you run the Fire-Lit Thickets, it doesn't play out well too often with the Noble Hierarch unless you get Groundbreaker.
Ima go build up a faster version of this deck, possibly running a naya burn style deck with Boros Charm, but instead of a normal burn deck, what I love about this, is it shows how to build a more midrangy burn deck, with larger, more impactful damage.

Yess that will works :)
The rest is to upgrade land section. Shocklands is a must. You dont want most of your land ETB tapped all the time, it will leave you far behind than your opponents.
Dual lands from BFZ is fine but inconsistant, your basic lands is quite low. And why dont you bring Farseek, Skyshroud Claim, Tempt with Discovery or Krosan Verge(the worst) maybe ? it will help you search and fix color by finding your duallands.
City of Brass Forbidden Orchard Reflecting Pool is a key to 5 color deck, they dont ETB tapped and fix colors. You dont want to have Cinder Glade or Canopy Vista on your first turn and cannot drop your Birds of Paradise

i have changed up the deck to make it less expensive by taking out one of the lands which ran at 32 dollars each, because it really didn't give us a big advantage with our mana. Just so you guys know. The land was Fire-Lit Thicket. It would not change to a non-foil version of the card, that is why it was running at $32.

...FOR NON BUDGET
While these are more expensive, they are the better kinds of mana fixing you can find for EDH
Alpha Duals are another consideration but they are over 100$ a piece, outside of most peoples budget. Same goes for Gaea's Cradle.
Lastly, some of these are cheap and some are not, but every EDH deck should have some utility lands like the ones you have in Rogues Passage and Kher Keep. Some other ones are-
Barren Moor and other mono colored cycle lands
Raging Ravine and other creature lands

OK, thanks, Spazik008. I'll stick with just one for now, since I'd much rather run the risk of not having enough to cast Kiki on time than the risk of having a Fire-Lit Thicket and a Krosan Verge in my opening hand and not be able to cast anything.

SCORE: 1 | 19 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER
It recently occurred to me to add Fire-Lit Thicket to the above deck to help with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker's onerous colour requirements but I could use some input on what people think is the ideal number of filter-lands to run.
