I think you're playing too many tapped lands. Golgari Guildgate and Jungle Hollow can easily be cut for basic lands. Having more basics also helps you avoid getting absolutely destroyed by things like BloodMoon or Back to Basics , which are commonly played cards.

Your deck's curve is also a little off. I think you need more 1 drops ( Expedition Map , Wayfarer's Bauble , Mana Vault , Vampiric Tutor , Birds of Paradise , Deathrite Shaman , etc). I would cut some of your 6 drops to make room (you have a lot of 6 drops).

I also think you should make use of ramp spells before you play mana rocks. Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , Nature's Lore , Farseek , Sylvan Scrying , Nissa's Pilgrimage , Search for Tomorrow , and Skyshroud Claim are all just so much better than Gilded Lotus or Golgari Signet .

I'm looking to build a grixis superfriends deck and am looking for these cards. I have just updated my binder with everything I currently have.

Even for superfriends Dovin Baan is kinda meh most of The time you just get 1 card and 2 live which isn't worth 4 mana. Gilded Lotus would also be on my chopping board if you lack means to untap a couple of times in your turn,5 mana ramp that is supectable to removal is too risky in my opinion beside it's almost a curvetopper in your deck either take something like Commander's Sphere or Darksteel Ingot or add a land(32 lands seem kinda few). Also I don't think that your deck can really utilise Venser, the Sojourner as you run few creatures.

VaalVanir Casting Magnetic Theft in that instance would gain you 4 life. The only spells cast that turn were Enlightened Tutor , Bandage , Aetherflux Reservoir and Magnetic Theft . So when Magnetic Theft is cast, the storm counters goes to 4, and when it resolves you will gain 4 life.

TwinStags Springleaf Drum is an OK budget option since it untaps with Paradox Engine but I wouldn't go for Paradise Mantle . Some other budget inclusions for mana rocks are Gilded Lotus , Thran Dynamo , Prismatic Lens , Commander's Sphere , Fire Diamond , Marble Diamond or Mox Amber

Out

Renegade Tactics -> Draw but it's a sorcery and that really hampers it

Seize the Day -> Cute, but I probably don't win with single creature combat

Flickerwisp -> Too much blink, and not enough blink targets

Gilded Lotus -> A bit expensive and lots of my spells are 1 mana, not 3

Unwinding Clock -> only useful with a handful of mana rocks

In

Mountain and Plains -> what was I thinking with only 33 lands. It's a cheap deck, but still...

Phalanx Leader , Vanguard of Brimaz , and Akroan Crusader -> token makers and token buffers

I've been having a lot of fun with him! He's really powerful once he gets going. Mishra's Self-Replicator and Sai, Master Thopterist make him amazing. I think Hostage Taker is a great idea! I could exile an artifact or creature for two mana (as long as Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge is out). I think I'll also put in Tetzimoc, Primal Death for more creature based removal.

That's a good point about One with the Machine . So far, I've cast it for 5 with Gilded Lotus and 4 with Traxos, Scourge of Kroog , and the third time I kept it in my hand because I didn't have a good artifact on the field. I might swap it out for Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage .

I'm still experimenting with it. Let me know if you decide to build it! I think focusing on creatures, artifacts, and planeswalkers is the way to go because of Tezzeret's affinity.

Cheers!

A good mana rock for multi colored decks are ones that can tap for any color of mana. So maybe a Gilded Lotus , Coalition Relic , or even the new Firemind Vessel would be good for mana fixing for the deck.
