Flood Plain Discussion
2 weeks ago
Not so much a suggestion as something to consider, BUT, if you're looking to fix your mana on a budget, the Mirage Fetches work wonders (and grab your shocks, too!)
Bad River, Grasslands, Flood Plain, Rocky Tar Pit, Mountain Valley. Sadly the last two only get one of your colours, but Krosan Verge gets you an Overgrown Tomb and Hallowed Fountain for example, despite needing to activate.

Don't play the Guildgates. The only reason to play guildgates is if you can flicker Gatecreeper Vine. And don't play the taplands (Tranquil Expanse and Woodland Stream) either. There's literally no reason to play these outside of pauper commander.You could run the other checklands (like Drowned Catacomb which you already use). And instead of Shimmering Grotto, you could rather run Rupture Spire and Transguild Promenade. Since your commander is Atraxa, I'd recommend Tendo Ice Bridge and Mirrodin's Core as well.
There are two others cycles of lands with basic land types but the shocklands: those from Battle for Zendikar (e.g. Prairie Stream) and the bicycle lands from Amonkhet (e.g. Irrigated Farmland). Those are quite affordable while still fetchable. You can find more budget friendly fetchlands in Mirage (e.g. Flood Plain). Unfortunately, all those options only exist in allied colored combinations. (I really think Wizards should make those cycles complete before they come up with new nonbasic land designs in the future.)

How budget are you looking to go, given that you're running four-colors and 24 planeswalkers?
You're barely running any fetch or shock lands. Those are pricey, especially enemy fetch like Overgrown Tomb. There's the Mirage fetch, like Flood Plain, Bad River, and Grasslands. Those are pretty cheap, but much slower, as well as downgrading the duals to CIPT duals which are generally cheaper.

Hey its PJ from Commander Replay. You're deck looks to be in great shape, so I have a few suggestions that I think it will help trim some fat and add more punch.
First up the cards to cut. Id get rid of Mind's Eye The way this deck plays you're going to want to tap out your mana every turn and you don't really have time to leave mana open to try and draw, plus its clunky at 5cc. Also cut Reforge the Soul I find it to be too slow. You usually need to take an entire turn off to play it, so its just too slow and clunky. Wheel of fortune is great, but if you can't afford it just stick with magus of the wheel. The cost of 3 then 2 is much better than 5 all at once. Your card draw will come primary from Mask of Memory, Sword of Fire and Ice with Sunforger and Sword of the Animist also generating card advantage. Next I personally would cut the Ancient Den, Great Furnace and Mox Opal package since you don't want your lands getting taken down by vandalblast. I would use Thought Vessel in place of mox opal. Next up cut Divine Reckoning its just never going to do what you want it to. Use a full board wipe instead. I would cut Gratuitous Violence its always been a bit too slow for me and the RRR is hard to get on turn 5. Next were going to cut Relic Seeker for open the armory, its a great card early but gets less good the longer the game goes, its usually one of the last cards i cut trying to get down to 99. Ive always found Savage Beating to be too slow.
Next up, the maybe cuts. Sword of Light and Shadow I have tried to live the light and shadow dream for a long time and it just usually doesn't come through. I have found that you really want higher creature counts to get good benefit out of it. Great card, but not the right home. Ive never had great experience with Assemble the Legion if you're having more success than me, keep it, if not cut it. Pay attention to The Immortal Sun and Alms Collector I haven't tested either of these, but if they are playing well keep them, if they aren't cut them.
Once you know what to cut, it frees up a lot of room. So you can use my suggestions for additions if you want to, or you can try out some other things that you want to. But here are the cards that I would add:
Duelist's HeritageIt will replace gratuitous violence nicely.Open the Armory will replace relic seeker. find your equipment immediately. Glorybringer is just insane with Aurelia. On turn 5 it kills most things. Balan, Wandering Knight, Kazuul's Toll Collector, Armory Automaton all 3 are great in equipment decks. Next up your sunforger package, Comeuppance and Sulfurous Blast are all stars for me. If sun forger with mistveil plains, comeuppance says you can't kill me in combat. Sulfurous is often one of the first things I go for after resolving sun forger, beyond obviously leaving up boros charm and teferis. Neheb, the Eternal gives you a second way to hit the aggravated assault combo, is a good beater, and even just some incidental extra mana is nice. And finally I would add in the full board wipe of you choice Blasphemous Act, Wrath of God All Is Dust and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon are all great choices. Pick the one best fits.
The mana base. Emeria, The Sky Ruin is a must. If they are in the budget khans fetches like Windswept Heath are really nice. If not, I would get the mirage fetches like Flood Plain. Focus on the white fetchlands since they get mistveil plains. Because you have 1 hit potential, Cathedral of War is a solid choice but it does have cost sometimes of being colorless. New Benalia is also solid.
Other things that I like a lot but aren't must includes. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Inferno Titan, Etali, Primal Storm. Treasonous Ogre is a card not many people know about, I've used it successfully, but I would make sure you have some life gain to balance it out.
Heres some personal preference things:I run Tithe and Gift of Estates in place of Weathered Wayfarer each have pros and cons. I like running Wear / Tear even though you can only cast half of it off sun forger. I prefer Swiftfoot Boots over Lightning Greavesbecause of the awkwardness of shroud.
I need to update it, theres a few cards I no longer use. but I have a very similar Aurelia list you can check it out here. Aurelia Weapons of War
For me with a deck like this, early game I focus on mask of memory and/or sword of the animist to generate some early advantage. These also don't draw as much artifact hate as the big hitters. Then ill bring down sun forger, feast and famine and fire and ice or argentum armor later to close things out.
Anyway hope these help!

Welcome back to Magic!
out meteor crater - I think your mana is good enough that you don't need this type of card. Don't want to turn board wipes into land destruction as well
dromar's cavern - sets you back a land for fixing. I think your deck with dual lands doesn't need this type of card
I think ajani's pridemate and serene steward won't be strong enough in commander
gwafa hazid, profiteer isn't great. you give your opponents cards, then they kill your gwafa and attack you. weak sauce
abzan battle priest could be upgraded i think. True Conviction gives all your creatures lifelink (and doublestrike)
Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is another praetor that's very good

Swiftfoot Boots is another good equipment.
Trinket Mage fetches for 1 or less so Ancient Den an Vault of Whispers are a goo include, and Welding Jar might not be bad either. Also it could fetch a Phyrexian Dreadnought to combo with a Torpor Orb, Nimble Obstructionist, or Stifle.
Necropotence is an insane card draw engine.
And finally Sorin Markov would make a great planeswalker.

Any reason to not use Batterskull, Umezawa's Jitte, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Body and Mind, Sword of Light and Shadow, and Sword of War and Peace? Arguably these are among the best equipment in the game, all conspicuously absent? I know some are on the pretty expensive (in dollar amount) end of things, but some aren't too bad, and the power level is absurd.
Other obvious upgrades come in the mana base, getting rid of so many tap lands. Horizon Canopy, all of the fetches that get Plains or Forests (Flooded Strand, Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath, Marsh Flats, Verdant Catacombs, Arid Mesa, and Misty Rainforest), for budget don't forget the Mirage fetches (Flood Plain, Mountain Valley, Grasslands). Others to not forget would be like Flagstones of Trokair

I hear that. I have about $0.20 available right now, need some further play testing to find some money for a Flood Plain. Exotic Orchard for less than $0.50 seems decent with a 3-color mana base as well. I'll keep vivid's in mind, I usually tend to stay away from tapped lands, but in this deck's case, it's a slow progression so they are probably suitable, considering the 3 colors in both the Commander and his ability.
Thanks for the feedback, appreciated!
