I quite like your version of the deck as well. Other than the cards you've already suggested me, there are a few cards in here I might add to my own especially that juicy Stunning Reversal .

As for the cards I would suggest you, I think you should try adding Glacial Chasm as it can help you survive early game (though it doesn't synergize well with Geode Golem ) as well as Maze of Ith for the same purpose.

Bojuka Bog is a good pick to counter decks that are highly dependant on their graveyard.

If you end up adding multiple non-Swamp lands, I really suggest Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth as well as a way to try fetching it.

Chainer, Dementia could be really good if well used, but sadly Doom Whisperer is also a Nightmare so those cards don't synergize that well. Unless you have a way to protect the Chainer, then they'll synergize well.

I don't know if Exquisite Blood is out of your budget, but it's a really good lifegain card. And it stacks with lifelink so buffing a lifelink creature with Unspeakable Symbol can make it really hard for your opponent to deal with that much lifegain.

themeeps: It's purely for utility purposes. I have two lands that doesn't tap for mana Dark Depths and Glacial Chasm as well as Ancient Tomb which can take a toll on my life total later in the game. Urborg turns them into an upside.

Don't forget about Flamekin Village for another haste enabler

I'll have to get a Grinning Ignus for my deck!

In my deck I try to protect myself from taking any of the damage, so I run things like Basilisk Collar and Loxodon Warhammer which nets me more life if I have more than one opponent. I also have Pariah's Shield which can be a huge life saver, especially if you put it on Stuffy Doll or Darksteel Myr . Also there is Glacial Chasm . I'm also going to replace all my mountains with snow covered mountains so I can run Extraplanar Lens and usually nobody else will get the benefit from it.

apex457 I noticed that you do not run Glacial Chasm or Realms Uncharted in you deck. Any particular reason why not? With Muldrotha realms uncharted is one of the most powerful cards letting me essentially tutor up four lands in one go.

apex457 I attempt to recur Glacial Chasm often. How would you suggest that I recur Glacial Chasm with Damia because I could get behind her.

Annexus Obviously I am not Enral but, I know for my list, its not just about using fetches and duals to get the colors you need, its about searching for your silver bullets to punish everyone else's play. Graveyard deck going off? Search Bojuka Bog . Overwhelmed with creatures attacking or afraid a spellslinger is going to fireball you for lethal? Grab up a Glacial Chasm . Getting buried by a big mana black deck with Cabal Coffers ? Grab up a Strip Mine .

Cascading Cataracts can help you with all of your colored mana needs, so having every fetch, dual, and shock isn't necessarily the most important thing in this deck. It's a lands matter deck more so than a 5 color good stuff.

I may be completely wrong as this is Enral's list and not my own, but we have very similar lists it seems.

LeonSpires I have a plethora of ways to win in the deck because there is a significant amount of NOPE in my meta. My personal favorite way to win is with Avenger of Zendikar and Craterhoof Behemoth but sometimes that gets interrupted and I dont like being left with nothing to fall back on. I have made significant cuts and additions to the list over the last year roughly. Lab man combo is fun and all but it's too easily interacted with so I use it as a fail safe. Hedron Crab is a 1 drop that can kill a table in a single turn just by having my basic combo online. I feel for a 1 drop it is very powerful in a deck that so easily utilizes infinite landfall. I use Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth just to get a little more mana out of my lands that dont tap for mana like Glacial Chasm and Dark Depths . It is a new addition to the list and I may cut it after further testing. I chose not to run cards like Cultivate because I chose to run cards like Crop Rotation and Sylvan Scrying . The deck basically plays itself because of tats draw mechanics so getting lands is no issue at all. Most times I have more lands than I know what to do with Haha. Thank you very much for the upvote and the input. I will look at your list for ideas and also at the link you sent me for fancifying my list :)

Hi again mate,

thank you for the suggestion. As far as utility lands go I already have a ton of utility lands that tap only for colorless ( Phyrexian Tower , High Market , Rogue's Passage , Vault of the Archangel , among others) or don't tap for mana at all like Maze of Ith and Glacial Chasm . This puts an enormous strain on the manabase and the deck cannot handle more lands like this without start affecting the ability to cast my spells on time. I won't deny that Hall of Heliod's Generosity is an excellent card that would add recursion capacity to deck but atm I am even cutting Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion for the very same reason.
