Heat Shimmer Discussion

Boomcat12B I totally agree on the front of tapped lands (though certain taplands have a purpose, such as Mortuary Mire for recursion). The issue at hand is that I want to keep this deck as budget as possible to make it accessible, and for me that means keeping it under $300. Sadly good lands are stupidly expensive, so I purposefully excluded most of them. Also, I already did run Blood Crypt and Graven Cairns . But I do think I may swap out City of Brass for Sulfurous Springs as it brings the price down by about $2.

I will definitely look to include the Sunscorched Desert , ping damage adds up and can be underappreciated.

The Dualcaster Mage + Heat Shimmer combo is actually one that I initially considered and dismissed for this deck, so for now I will continue to forego it for now.

TetrAggressive I agree that the crawler is powerful if it hits the field with Anje, but I don't currently have any creature's I would want to cut for the include. For instance, Archfiend of Ifnir is the same CMC, but it plays off the discard, as opposed to the draw.

If you can get away with tapped lands in your play group that's awesome. But when playing at a competitive tier tapped lands are simply to slow and don't provide enough upside to justify taking up a slot. Especially with Anje. She wants to win as soon as possible since she has very little in the way of effective interaction outside of a few cards. Maybe replace those tapped lands with fetches (these give you a shuffle effect which can be helpful, especially when rummaging with Anje)- Fetchlands/ Blood Crypt , Graven Cairns , Sulfurous Springs , Luxury Suite , or Aether Hub as just a few ideas. These will help speed up your deck and provide more consistent plays. Also definitely add Sunscorched Desert this gives you another means to proc dmg off of you worldgorger loop, with the added bonus of being a land so it is much more difficult to interact with. Also I think Fellwar Stone is a better include over Mind Stone as it will provide you with colored mana (Hopefully a black or red). There is nothing wrong with 2 drop mana ramp in CEDH by the way. It is just not as effective as cards like Crypt or Vault. But they can work nicely to help round out your mana base as CEDH runs much lighter land packages than regular EDH. My "Budget" CEDH Anje list runs 30 lands and 11 mana rocks. (I am running that many because I am not running Crypt or LED since I am trying to keep it under 800 dollars and "budget" for CEDH anyways) My deck wants to win by turn 3 or 4 so I need to make sure I hit a rock for turn 1 or 2. Finally might I suggest Dualcaster Mage and Heat Shimmer as a back up wincon if gorger is exiled. Just some ideas that I hope help out some.

May I suggest Helm of the Host and Minion Reflector .

Also after looking into it some more here are some other cards I found: Arcane Artisan , Heat Shimmer , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Kindred Charge , Mirror March , Mirrorpool , Rite of Replication , Saheeli Rai , Soul Foundry , Twinflame , Zndrsplt's Judgment , Splinter Twin

Also I feel like you don't have a whole lot of the really good eldrazi. Obviously you are missing the eldrazi titans, but those cost a lot. Some other suggestions are It That Betrays , Thought-Knot Seer (has an enter the battlefield effect), Deceiver of Form , Breaker of Armies .

You might benefit from having a lot of copies of cards like Platinum Emperion , Platinum Angel or Void Winnower out on the battlefield at the same time, but I would say that deviates from your overall game plan.
