Luxury Suite Discussion

Hey, this is a good start, but consider being even more aggressive with Vamps and eminence?
One drop Vamps are pretty important to the strategy with eminence, but the manabase here can't support them very well. Consider more lands that can ETB untapped turn one especially to make black mana for Vamps?
- Unclaimed Territory
- Caves of Koilos
- Sulfurous Springs
- Battlefield Forge
- Concealed Courtyard
- Inspiring Vantage
- Sacred Foundry
- Blood Crypt
- Luxury Suite
- City of Brass
- Mana Confluence
- Bloodstained Mire
Consider more one drop Vamps?
- Shadow Alley Denizen : eminence Vamp tokens are black.
- Viscera Seer
- Vampire Cutthroat
- Skymarcher Aspirant
- Falkenrath Gorger
- Stromkirk Noble
- Insolent Neonate
Consider more two drop Vamps?
- Dusk Legion Zealot
- Olivia's Bloodsworn
- Vampire Interloper
- Bloodthrone Vampire
- Stromkirk Condemned
- Zulaport Cutthroat : not a Vamp, but very good when Vamp tokens are dieing.
Other cards to consider:
- Sanctum Seeker and Brutal Hordechief : add to the aggression give a lot of opponent life lose reach with attacking Vamps.
- Shared Animosity : very powerful anthem effect with attacking tokens.
- Dark Prophecy : triggers when tokens die.
- Mass Hysteria
- Boros Charm : protection from most board wipes.
- Price of Progress : great burn in Commander, gives a lot of damage reach for two mana.
- Anguished Unmaking
- Swords to Plowshares
If you like some of these suggestions then I can help you to make cuts.
Good luck with your deck.

Some lands you might consider: Unclaimed Territory, Exotic Orchard, Caves of Koilos, Shadowblood Ridge, Tainted Field, Tainted Peak, Smoldering Marsh, Luxury Suite, Canyon Slough, Foreboding Ruins. You might also consider some artifact ramp that gives colored mana: Rakdos Signet, Orzhov Signet, Boros Signet, Fellwar Stone instead of Worn Powerstone and Coldsteel Heart.

Fan of the deck, but what is your budget?
I think running less tapped lands, more lands like Sulfurous Springs, Blood Crypt, fetches, Graven Cairns, Luxury Suite, Shadowblood Ridge, etc. are all great choices for the deck, as well as rocks such as Talisman of Indulgence, Fellwar Stone, etc.
The more mana the better in a Xantcha deck, am I right?

Isn't 33 lands a little too low for a 4.28 CMC 5-color deck that runs a lot of X spells? Since you're running Burgeoning, Exploration and Mirari's Wake, you'll be better upping land count to 37-38 and running land ramp on form of Farseek, Nature's Lore, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Skyshroud Claim, Hunting Wilds (they all can grab non-basic lands). Some lands you might consider are Exotic Orchard, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Reflecting Pool, Sea of Clouds, Morphic Pool, Luxury Suite, Spire Garden, Bountiful Promenade. You can take out the less synergistic cards, like Rattleclaw Mystic and Crystalline Crawler.

I think, since it's a tribal, you should definitely add Cavern of Souls
Some other good lands could be: Marsh Flats, Bloodstained Mire, Arid Mesa, Sacred Foundry, Luxury Suite (or, if you have money, Plateau, Badlands, Scrubland), Winding Canyons, Maze of Ith, Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, Wasteland, Bojuka Bog, Nephalia Academy, Slayers' Stronghold, Command Beacon, Arcane Lighthouse

Okay let's talk some cheap, always a relative term in MtG, and easy swaps to help this deck get off to the races a bit quicker. Command Tower for any of your enter into play tapped with no bonuses lands is an easy fix.
Both of your Keystones could be swapped for either Cluestones or Signets. The signets act as a filter to help color fix and drop a turn faster. The Cluestones offer card draw which usually leads to card advantage.
Morphic Pool and Luxury Suite are straight up better than almost any of your tap lands, and fairly cheap to boot. With again reprints on the horizon the three shock lands Watery Grave Blood Crypt and Steam Vents are also all coming down as well. All of the check lands were also reprinted in Ixalan so Dragonskull Summit Drowned Catacomb and Sulfur Falls are all pretty cheap despite being used in Standard and will only get cheaper when they rotate out.

So let's talk budget, relatively speaking, land base upgrades. For starters all of the Battlebond lands almost always enter into play untapped Spire Garden Sea of Clouds Morphic Pool Luxury Suite and Bountiful Promenade and by rough estimate you can get all of them for about $35-40. These could easily replace the respective Scry Temples of the same colors so that you don't get in the way of your mana distribution.
Rootbound Crag and the similar style lands are quite good, except you aren't running any basic lands in this deck and therefore this will always enter into play tapped unless you happen to have your Canopy Vista in hand.
On that note, I would consider swapping out some of the enter into play tapped lands for a couple of Forest and running one of each basic land. This would allow you to push in a Cultivate or Kodama's Reach to allow you to ramp into the colors you need for what you have in hand at the time. This would have the added bonus of your Zendikar lands having a chance to enter into play untapped.
For the tri-color lands, I would consider running a full set of all the Lairs and removing the tri color lands that strictly enter play tapped. They are good in three color decks for early color fixing but in 4-5 color decks they just seem to slow you down. The lairs at least let you tap the land you bounce back first to get the mana in your mana pool so you can have a chance to play out something.
And finally, promise we are almost done!, if you can get more of the various lands that are "dual" types ex Plains Forest etc, those can be fetched out by Karametra, God of Harvests if they have Plains or Forest as one of those types. Sword of the Animist also allows you to go fetch basic lands out of your deck for swinging with a creature, which is something you're gonna want to do with this deck anyway.
Phew!! Sorry for the lengthy commentary, hope this helps or gives you some ideas of things you can do to improve you land base with spending thousands of dollars on true duals. :)
