Hi! Thanks for your comment!

I totally agree about Strip Mine etc etc - they are great includes to any deck but especially one so easily hosed by Glacial Chasm. I'll need to find some room for them, do you have any suggestions for cuts? I am nervous to lower my mountain count by too much but perhaps that is just the natural cut.

Crucible of Worlds would be such a great inclusion, especially if I add Strip Mine, but probably a bit out of budget. If I ever do get my hands on one it slots in nicely though!

I'd consider Strip Mine effects, 2-3 of them, just to hit any pesky utility lands. Since you're mono-colour they don't really slow you down.

With Sunstone and Glacial Chasm I've found Crucible of Worlds to be a lifesaver, but it is certainly not a cheap addition and may not be essentially to your build. Something to consider if you want to keep building it up.

currently heartless hidetsugu is a win-condition if you have haste, one of it or Pestilent souleater caged, quicksilver elemental caged, and resolve Mairsil caging the missing piece of hidetsugu or souleaterYou use quicksilver to get around the once per turn clause, pay phyrexian mana until you are below 19 life, and if your opponents are NOT @ or below 19 life, you activate the hidetsugu ability with infect and everyone gets at least 10 poison counters, except yourself who gets 9 or less.Otherwise you need to throw in a copy of Wound Reflectionor Glacial Chasm/Orbs of Warding/Panacea/Pentagram of the Ages/Reinforced Bulwark etc. + Dictate of the Twin Gods/Furnace of Rath etc.

Your deck seems specifically tuned to your meta so I am not sure how much my suggestions will help, but here are some things that you might consider.

Including Misthollow Griffin as an additional Eternal Scourge.

Personally I feel that Rhystic Study is superior to Mystic Remora. You avoid cumulative upkeep cost, which for a controlling deck such as this seems important, and Rhystic Study triggers off all spells your opponents cast, not just non-creature spells.

I am not sure about your meta, but including Glacial Chasm to help stall until you assemble combo pieces is an option.

Lastly, I'd suggest a board wipe or two. I think Cyclonic Rift would be great here.

Glacial Chasm works pretty well with Solemnity.

War Tax is the opposite effect of War Cadence. It's a pretty big Ghostly Prison if you dump all your mana into it.

Card spewing here but: Rite of the Raging Storm, and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs. I like to use War Cadence to prevent my opponent from blocking another opponent's onlsaught if it's in my best interest. Still catches people off guard. Glacial Chasm will also make attacking you useless. It's worth the life payment in my experience, and if it gets too costly, or you want to attack, just don't pay the upkeep cost.

Crop Rotation has been an allstar for me, grabbing a Yavimaya Hollow or Glacial Chasm at instant speed to shut down them killing an important creature or attempting to kill you with damage has been sweet. Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle has also been good, but my list is a bit more skewed towards abusing it. How has Ashnod's Altar been as a sac outlet? Do you often use the mana from it, or does it perform like a worse Goblin Bombardment for you sometimes? Cool deck mate, I've been jamming angry Omnath for over a year now and he is one of my favorite decks despite me being a blue-inclined mage :D. List is below.

What deck are you on in legacy? Against Show and Tell, Ashen Rider can handle whatever they throw down. For Reanimator decks or other cheat-into-play decks, Blazing Archon does the trick. For Lands, Maze of Ith or Glacial Chasm.
