In the future, please link all cards in your question. It makes it much easier for us to understand what's going on if we can see the cards involved. You can link cards by using double square brackets:

Island is a little more budget so i might consider adding it to my deck its just so much more expensive then say Underground Sea that only costs $3,850 :)

I know this isn't budget, but have you considered putting Island in the deck? I know Tropical Island can make or for way less, but have you ever felt the fresh water in the artwork rush through your veins? Most LGS have sweaty people, no A/C, and crowded rooms. You can feel the power of an island as you tap it. The feeling is fresh and rejuvenating and it will give you an edge on your match-ups.

That is what it Boils down too.

I've seen many people playing 3-color decks that run half normal basic and half Snow-Covered basic.

For example, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician running 1 Forest, 1 Plains, 1 Island, 1 Snow-Covered Forest, 1 Snow-Covered Plains, and 1 Snow-Covered Island.

It is all dependant upon who you are playing and which they are using. Like RedUndead40 said, they use regular Basics. As I use all Snow-Covered in my decks, I would never benefit from their Extraplanar Lens.

Wake of Destruction can work either way. It simply targets the lands you aren't using.

Freyalise's Radiance also hammers down hard on Snow-Covered.

It is for these reasons that Snow-Covered are not a strictly better Basic Land. I believe they are better as most people don't include them and/or pack hate for them. My Meta allows me to take advantage of them without drawback, but somebody could easily hate me out of a game.

OK, So for cuts I'm thinking Crystal Ball,Mind Stone, Broodstar, Filigree Sages, Glint-Nest Crane, Trinket Mage, Treasure Mage, and two Island's

You will still probably need to cut more creatures to get down to 100 cards. I would maybe focus on 3 or 4 big synergies you want to play out, and then dump the cards that don't fit.

I really like were this is going! You may want to consider more cards that put things on the top of your library in stead of your hand. A Brainstorm seems much better than Thirst for Knowledge or Thoughtcast because of your commander.

Other possible artifacts: Vedalken Orrery, Panharmonicon, Expedition Map.

Tutor for Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and discard him or sacrifice him to protect your graveyard.

Since you're two color you probably dont need Commander's Sphere or Dimir Signet. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth fixes your Islands into Swamps. You can search it up with Expedition Map if you get any spells that are affected by how many swamps you control.

elpokitolama you're 100% right about Body Double and the other clones, I'll change their names to Face Dancers. I tried to fit Body Double in for a while but again, without any sort of reanimation magic like you get in , it just doesn't do enough work. Mimic Vat would be great flavor too, but as with many other cards, it'll have to go into another Dune-themed deck in different colors.

Thanks for the kind words Lilbrudder, your high opinion, as always, is much appreciated. It'd be great to see you, I'm trying to run some EDH events at a new board gaming bar here named D20. I'll add you to the group on facebook.

Thanks VietMoneys, and you're right that Dune is all about water, especially with the caches that the Fremen have underground. I meant more that there aren't Rishadan Ports or Islands on Arrakis. I categorized stuff here for flavor reasons but in many ways the categories are descriptive of the role the cards play in MtG too. For example, the stuff under Weirding Way is all true blue magic that is like instant speed board control. It's like kung fu in Magic sort of haha. Anyways, I'll update the description more clearly soon to actually explain what is going on in this deck. I hope we get to play someday. Where in Europe do you live specifically?

Go down to 20 lands. Delver needs to draw gas all the time, so too many lands is a no-no. take out 2x Creeping Tar Pit, 1 Island, 1 Mountain, 1 Swamp for 1 Steam Vents, 1 Watery Grave and 2 Spirebluff Canal/Darkslick Shores.

Drop the Izzet Charm, Faithless Looting and Slaughter Pact for 1 Lightning Bolt, 2 Thought Scour, 1 Tasigur, the Golden Fang and 1 Snapcaster Mage.

The sideboard is more up in the air, depending on meta, but Blood Moon isn't great, and Anger of the Gods is a bit bad if you have delvers/snapcasters on the field.

Anyway, just some suggestions, here is my delver list for reference:

Grixis Delver
