Infiltration Lens occurrence in decks from the last year

Infiltration Lens Discussion

Looks pretty good but I think you need more equipment that give trample, as a 40/40 double striking lifelinker is no good if they can chump it with a 0/1 thrull. I also really like Infiltration Lens cuz it makes a lose/lose situation for your opponents. Also with a deck without a ton of card draw I like wheel effects to refuel and mess with your opponents. Also, I don't love the red monarch card as you will generally get it taken from u, cuz u don't keep blockers back that you want to die. The white one is good thou cuz it gives you chumps and then game-eneding angels. Last point on the red monarch card, 2 damage isnt enough to kill anything but mana dorks and its turn 4-5 that it will come out.

So what I would recommend putting in are Outpost Siege - Staff of Nin - Tectonic Giant - Protector of the Crown - Tome of Legends - Mask of Memory - Infiltration Lens - Farsight Mask - Magus of the Wheel -
Two card-advantage cards are Giants, so that will "save" you two slots!
The cards that you don't own that might be worth buying are Bonders' Enclave for sure, and perhaps Well of Lost Dreams and Reforge the Soul. I love those. Stolen Strategy might be worth it too, for both Brion reasons and card-advantage reasons. It's extra good in a heavy ramp deck.
EDIT: I forgot a decent one: Vanquisher's Banner. I don't love it in decks with expensive creatures, but there it is

Next step is card-draw and card-advantage. Unfortunately, the Boros colors are the worst at drawing cards. Graveyard recursion is a type of card advantage, so Colfenor's Urn can count. I've never seen that card before! Nice find and good instincts!
Here are some options for you.
First up, the cards I own that I'm willing to part with:
Seer's Sundial - Staff of Nin - Farsight Mask - Key to the City - Infiltration Lens - Mask of Memory - Tome of Legends - Outpost Siege - Khorvath's Fury - Humble Defector - Chandra, Flamecaller - Magus of the Wheel
Cards I don't have that you should consider:
Bonders' Enclave would be worth picking up, I think.
Browbeat - Loreseeker's Stone - Arcane Encyclopedia - Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip - Ignite the Future - Reforge the Soul - Wheel of Fate - Mind's Eye (used to be the gold-standard! Very mana-inefficient though) - Icon of Ancestry (interesting choice since it has the anthem) - Rogue's Gloves - Well of Lost Dreams (great choice with your commander!) - Coveted Jewel (ramp and draw! Unreliable and mana-expensive, but chaotic and fun!) - Mangara, the Diplomat - Runehorn Hellkite - Dragon Mage - Knollspine Dragon - Herald's Horn - Endless Atlas (a bit suspect in two-color decks unless your colors are very skewed or you have lots of Renegade Map-type cards) - Bag of Holding - Arch of Orazca - Geier Reach Sanitarium - Mazemind Tome

Hey, nice budget version, less than $50 is impressive.
Command Tower is now less than $1 and is one of the best lands in Commander. Selesnya Sanctuary is another upgrade for a dual land. Quest for Renewal good with Emmara letting you create Soldiers or tap your tokens for other effects during each opponent's turn. Good repeatable draw with Mentor of the Meek. Glare of Subdual goes well with Renewal as opponent creature lockdown using tokens. Nullmage Shepherd can wreck opponents artifact or enchantment strategies.
Felidar Retreat is a new enchantment in Zendikar Rising for tokens. It's repeatable no mana cost Township effect or create a Cat token just by playing a land. Worth adding Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse and Myriad Landscape it adding Retreat. Champion of Lambholt can make your token army unblockable since she grows each time a token is created.
Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter combines well with Good-Fortune Unicorn to make each token created a mana dork. Jiang can put a counter on Emmara making it easier to tap her while also making mana. If going the Vehicle route for crew then Aethersphere Harvester and Untethered Express are some budget upgrades.
Cards to consider cutting:
- 2x Forest
- 2x Plains
- Blossoming Sands
- Anointer Priest
- Crusader of Odric
- Attended Healer
- Infiltration Lens
- Curse of Bounty
- Renegade Freighter
- Ovalchase Dragster
- Fleetwheel Cruiser
- Krosan Grip
- Entrapment Maneuver
- Collective Unconscious
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, you might need a bit more ramp to push those angles out at a good pace. Mind Stone, Fractured Powerstone, Prismatic Lens, Worn Powerstone, Star Compass, Fellwar Stone, and Verge Rangers are all great options.

Honestly you could cut a land and 2 mana rocks and still have a solid mana base considering the size of your curve. That would leave you 3 open slots to play around with. May I suggest Curiosity, Ophidian Eye, or Tandem Lookout? Can't go wrong with extra card draw every time Ruhan swings. They could also be combined with a Niv-Mizzet of your choice for a solid alternative wincon. There are also Infiltration Lens and Mask of Memory for equipment based card draw.
I like your deck! It's very similar to my Tahngarth deck. Ruhan is a pretty fun dude to pilot and play against. Hope this helps. :^)
