Gilded Lotus Discussion

Yes, but future sets did nod to them (aka Gilded Lotus) and I was wondering if there is any info regarding where they ended up, or what they actually are.

Angel of Despair seems better than Acidic Slime because you get a bigger body in the air and a better selection of permanents to destroy.
Conflux is an underrated, underestimated, and underused WUBRG bomb.
Gilded Lotus feels good both hard-casted and free-casted, giving you a 3/5 instant return on mana.
And Rhystic Study. I mean, that's self explanatory, although I can see why you might not want it in your deck.

Nice budget-Esque Braids build. Braids is really hard to build on a budget. I’ve been playing Braids consistently for a couple years now. I’m not got g to recommend big $$$ cards that fuel my deck but I will shed some insight into what works well with Braids —- big mana rocks: Gilded Lotus, Nyx Lotus, or even Dreamstone Hedron all have a place in Braids. Chromatic Orrery may be worth it for the colorless mana alone. Include Voltaic Key. Braids allows you to play these rocks for free, which provides ramp. As for other ramp: Caged Sun works nicely (Extraplanar Lens is out of budget). This all will allow you to ramp into you eldrazi titans with annihilator. Budget options include Pathrazer of Ulamog and Ulamog's Crusher. Void Winnower is crippling. Budget beasties may include Darksteel Colossus. You should run Strionic Resonator to double your Braids triggers OR annihilator triggers :))))) I’d ditch the land ramp as Braids will provide that as well. Include Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and couple him with your Omen Machine or Knowledge Pool as your win con. Flash allows you to play Braids right before your own turn. Ditch the lab man effects—-make it a grind. I hope this helps.

Hey there! I might be able to give you some suggestions though whether they are helpful or not I'm not sure. Let's start off with lands.
Basics aren't BAD but there are SO many options that could be better than them, and personally I don't think its worth it to run that many of them when there are those better options. I would consider some of the following! (If you have the budget)
- Spirebluff Canal
- Fiery Islet
- Cascade Bluffs
- Volcanic Island
- Scalding Tarn
- City of Brass
- Mana Confluence
- Ancient Tomb
- Prismatic Vista
- Fabled Passage
- Gemstone Caverns
- Gemstone Mine
- Strip Mine
- Tarnished Citadel (ehhh maybe not)
- Reflecting Pool
Yeah some of these are on the expensive side, but as you progress with your deck, I do recommend checking them out (maybe not Volcanic Island though XD)! However, I do have a couple more suggestions. Lets look at your ramp. You do have some pretty good ones, especially Lotus Petal, but I may have a couple of better ones I'd consider adding. Now I wouldn't add all of these, but maybe the ones you like, can afford, and work with your deck. Particularly the first seven.
- Sapphire Medallion
- Mana Vault
- Mana Crypt
- Chrome Mox
- Extraplanar Lens
- Cloud Key
- Mox Diamond
- Fellwar Stone
- Thran Dynamo
- Gilded Lotus
Now usually that's all I help people with, but I can't help but noticing you don't run a Ophidian Eye! It could be a whole other wincon since it goes infinite, and I'd definitely recommend it to all Niv Mizzet players, right along side curisoity and tandem lookout which you already run.
So in the end, I definitely would consider most of the ramp, nearly all the lands, and definitely ophidian. I promise your deck will perform MUCH better with these additions, and though some of them are investments, they are VERY helpful. If this does help you be sure to check out and upvote some of my decks, I would appreciate it! (Double Trouble EDH)! Anyways, I hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!

I like the idea, but I feel like you don't have enough sacrifice outlets to benefit as effectively from Font of Mythos and Coveted Jewel. I'd recommend cards like Arcbound Ravager, Metalwork Colossus, Sage of Lat-Nam, and Sai, Master Thopterist to get some instant speed sacrifice mechanics so that you can remove those when you want to before an opponent would benefit from. I also think the more expensive cards here are a bit overkill compared to the rest of the deck, it could be a lot more budget friendly if you pulled Force of Will, Chrome Mox, manacrypt, Ancient Tomb, and Metalworker. That would drop the overall cost by about 300 and wouldn't sacrifice much for efficiency. Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power (which is expensive, but not more than extraplanar lens) as well as Gilded Lotus, Nyx Lotus, and Blinkmoth Urn can make up for the loss of the mana generation by removing those more expensive cards. I'd also recommend some board wipe cards like Oblivion Stone and Nevinyrral's Disk to accomodate when the board state is getting hectic.

In mono white, I would use more ramp and card draw.
Sol Ring; Mind Stone; Caged Sun; Gilded Lotus/Nyx Lotus; Smothering Tithe; Knight of the White Orchid; Endless Horizon/Land Tax; Burnished Hart; Marble Diamond/Coldsteel Heart; Pearl Medallion; Gift of Estates; etc.
Mind's Eye; Staff of Nin are both decent for some card draw.
Remember, you can exile YOUR attacking creatures with Settle the Wreckage to ramp up.
I'm gonna use some of those cards in my Celestial Crusade, which isnt updated yet, Im super lazy... :D
Cards I would remove:
Ajani's Mantra - only 1 life per each four turns is meh.
Teyo, the Shieldmage - hexproof is nice, but Im not really fan of Teyo.. I would rather go with Orbs of Warding for the same mana cost or add some ramp/draw.
Fencing Ace - It seems there isnt much ways to buff up this dude, should be more useful in some aura/equipment orientated deck.

To increase consistency of the deck I would increase the number of mana rocks and lands. You have 40 cards that are dedicated to mana, I would prefer to have at around 45/50. Include like: Commander's Sphere Gilded Lotus Darksteel Ingot Thawing Glaciers Myriad Landscape etc.
Leyline of Anticipation would be a great addition to you deck I think.
