Jwar Isle Refuge Discussion
1 week ago
Here are my land suggestions:
1x Fetid Pools
1x Maze of Ith - not really a land because it doesn't tap for mana, but it's a good card
1x Nimbus Maze
Here are the land cuts:
1x Blighted Fen
Which would leave you with a manabase of:
1x Fetid Pools
1x Maze of Ith
1x Nimbus Maze
1x Opal Palace
This manabase can largely be ported over to Zur, except for the lifegain taplands like Jwar Isle Refuge, which I think are generally just okay but are good in this deck because with Oloro out, you can play it and draw a card. I tried to keep the prices pretty low, because I didn't know your budget, but you can add Hallowed Fountain and stuff if you like (especially that one since it's cheap). Bad fetches like Bad River and Flood Plain get better if you spring for shocklands.

Your mana base is not consistent enough to make the deck work fast enough (in playtesting I always had problems with the mana).
You need more dual lands, not expensive ones, such as Caves of Koilos super cheap and effective a full list of cards Id recommend going into the land slots being:
To speed up the deck as well you could also include one or two more mana rocks, Thran Dynamos Iconic Masters version is currently about $2.5
Also if you wanted too you could base the deck around a recursion combo with Second Sunrise and Devouring Greed, just find a way to recurr the two spells, add some cheap tutor effects (Diabolic Tutor, Increasing Ambitionand boom

It says in the title that this is a modern deck, and Extract from Darkness is not modern legal firstly. Secondly one of the advantages of a deck like this is to blank removal, although it makes the deck in general worse vs. Leyline of Sanctity but generally I would recommend running as many mill spells as possible while skimping on the creature base.
Cards I would recommend for this strategy (budget wise)Tome ScourHedron Crab is sick, but almost three dollars a popMind Funeral, again almost three dollars but card is a house, costs three mana for what Mind Grind would do for six mana. Breaking / Entering budget version of Glimpse the Unthinkable but still a very good rate as it does two mana for 8 instead of 2 for 7 with Mind Sculpt (I do recommend running both though)Thought Scour, its cheap, cantrips, mills just a little bit but goes very well with Sphinx's TutelageDream Twist is nice its one for three and allows you to flashback as well
For lands you can get some budget duals in the form of Dimir Guildgate, Jwar Isle Refuge, or Dismal Backwater. Also I'm not sure on the price but Drowned Catacomb was just reprinted in Ixalan so I might imagine it's not too pricey right now.

Hey Pygmyrhino990! Glad you like the deck. I can go over each of the cards that are over $5 and explain why I think they're replaceable or not.
Chromatic Lantern is one of the best mana rocks in the game. The ability to get all of our colors online whenever we want is really great, especially since some of our strongest cards like Arcanis the Omnipotent, Dualcaster Mage, and Necropotence are all color intensive. I would likely just replace this with another mana rock if it were to be taken out.
Cyclonic Rift is an incredible one-sided board wipe. I would say that this card is a blue staple and that nothing can compare to it; if you want to run something like Devastation Tide, it could work, but it would be far less effective for a number of reasons.
Drowned Catacomb is just a pretty good land. You can replace this with a basic or enters-tapped dimir dual (such as Jwar Isle Refuge) depending on how fast your version of the deck is if you build it.
Kess, Dissident Mage is a powerhouse. She can recur our cantrips and, on our turn, protect us if we're trying to combo and have a counterspell in the yard. If you don't own her, there really isn't a great replacement that does the same thing. Izzet Chronarch isn't too bad if you want more recursion, but Kess is just too good to give up in my opinion.
Kindred Discovery is a decent draw engine that can really help us get online if we make a lot of copies. A replacement for this could come in the form of a straight up draw spell such as Opportunity or a political enchantment such as Curse of Verbosity. The slot is really up to you though, as the card isn't necessary for the deck to be good an can likely be swapped out for whatever you would like.
Mystical Tutor is another blue staple that I don't think has any great replacements. Just a solid card overall.
Necropotence is the single best draw engine in the game. I almost always find a win very soon after it resolves. The best replacement for this is probably Phyrexian Arena; it's slow but consistent draw.
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a decent land that can probably be replaced with another land of your choice.
Paradox Engine is one of the main cards in this deck and one of the main ways we can accidentally or intentionally land a win. I can't think of anything that would replace this.
Patron Wizard is a really annoying card that does a LOT of work. It's incredibly expensive, though. There isn't really another card that has a similar effect, but you could try to run another counterspell or maybe play around with Ixalan's new Siren Stormtamer.
Reliquary Tower is another EDH staple that is probably fine to replace with any land of your choice.
Rhystic Study is a solid tax effect / draw engine that will be very annoying for your opponents. It's one of the better consistent draws in blue. This can be replaced with an upkeep extra draw effect such as Monastery Siege or another straight up draw spell if that's more up your alley. Merchant of Secrets is slow but not atrocious.
Sensei's Divining Top is just great fixing. I would try to pick one up when you can, as it has done wonders in most of my decks. If you don't want to spend the money, Sage of Epityr might be worth checking out as a one-time Top that filters garbage if we have some of our scry effects up.
Sigil Tracer is recurrable copy effect that can also hit our opponents' spells. It is a bit mana intensive, though. I don't love this card and you could play something like Wild Ricochet or Reverberate instead if you like the copy effect. If not, you can replace this with pretty much anything.
Sulfurous Springs is another good dual land that can be replaced with another land.
Wanderwine Prophets is an insanely annoying one card infinite turn combo if you can land it. It isn't integral to winning the game, however, and if you want another way to get infinite turns you could always replace it with Final Fortune (imprint Final Fortune on Isochron Scepter, at the end of the next turn use Sundial of the Infinite to avoid the lose the game trigger, repeat). If not, it can just be replaced with another high value wizard such as Havengul Lich or Vindictive Lich.

Faerie Miscreant is a pretty cheap flyer that can draw cards.

Remove the Jwar Isle Refuge and your deck is standard, I would replace it or add more modern cards to have a modern deck, but this deck is almost standard
