Mana Confluence Discussion
2 days ago
Could use some work, to be honest. Cards to add:
Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Bloodstained Mire, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs, Arid Mesa, Priest of Urabrask, Dryad Arbor, Glimpse of Nature, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Emrakul, the Promised End, Sylvan Safekeeper, Primordial Sage, Lotus Petal, Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Worldly Tutor.
Things to cut: Lumbering Falls, Raging Ravine, Jace Beleren, Cinder Glade, the checklands, Mosswort Bridge, Earthcraft, your remaining basics, and most of your large creatures are underwhelming. This deck seems to have the classic Animar problem: too stompy to hold its own at TRULY competitive tables, and too commander-reliant (though that of course comes with the territory in this kind of deck).

Some relatively cheap lands that I don't see that would likely help you out: Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Yavimaya Coast, Forbidden Orchard. None of these come into play tapped and produce both of your colors. City and Confluence could kill you if you must rely on them for infinite mana shenanigans, while the other two have downsides that don't prevent your win condition.
IDK just how fast your meta is, but I would try to ditch the lands that come into play tapped unless you absolutely need the other effects they provide.
I don't know if you didn't mention it because it's somewhat obvious, but another win condition you have is infinite mana + Deadeye Navigator + Venser, Shaper Savant to bounce all permanents you don't control, then proceed to bounce any spells you don't control.

If you are just playing casually, I would recommend Golgari Grave-Troll because he is gold for Dredge.
Also if you do end up splashing red for some of the cards recommended by HezTheGod(which can cause some crazy dredge triggers), you could supplement your mana base with cards like City of Brass and/or Mana Confluence to make sure you always have the right color of mana.

Exotic Orchard and Reflecting Pool seem like risks to me. I would run Tarnished Citadel and Mana Confluence instead. You could run City of Brass in place of the Citadel, but I wouldn't recommend it since Chromatic Lantern doesn't stop Brass from hurting you.
With as many planeswalkers as you have already, I would also recommend The Chain Veil, because Teferi's -1 and Tezzeret's +1 would allow you to abuse it several times.

Two more questions:1. Why no City of Brass or Mana Confluence? They both look like an auto-in to me.2. No love for Spirit of the Labyrinth? Seems like a decent stax piece for a deck which usually draws one card per turn.3. All of the dorks except from Llanowar Elves. Why :)?

Okay, let's do this! cracks knuckles I love the snarky tone of the description, btw :)
The stax elements of this deck seem strong, mostly. You're missing Winter Orb though. I would normally suggest Crackdown and Meekstone and Moat, but they interfere with Alesha :( Perhaps Smoke or Mudslide? I don't personally like Chalice of the Void in EDH, though, there's just too much variance in the mana cost of powerful cards. And since you're reanimating things anyway, might as well play Big Daddy Smokestack!
However, the land base seems...a little off. 29 mana-producing lands is REALLY really low, doubly so since you will have to pay some of your own "taxes". I know that the Karoo lands help a bit, but I still wouldn't trust this mana base without SIGNIFICANT testing. You might also find the Filterlands useful to mana fix (Rugged Prairie, Fetid Heath, Graven Cairns). I also never leave home without Reflecting Pool, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, etc. Basically, look at Lilbrudder's Leovold mana base and color-shift it XD
I'm actually not really a fan of Nahiri, the Harbinger in EDH. Is she just there for utility, or are you planning to use her ult? If the former is true, there are better ways to get card filtering. If the latter is true, what's your finisher?
That being said, planeswalkers can generally be really good in stax decks. You might get away with including some other walkers that play more into your gameplan, possibly Sorin Markov to reset lifetotals? :)
No Necropotence? :( I guess maybe the card is too much color commitment in tri-color.
If you're going to run Mox Opal with only 18 artifacts, I'd try and include the three on-color artifact lands as well.
False Prophet seems odd here, since you have the ability to reanimate creatures with relative ease.
Yes or no on Mox Diamond? Your land count is already low, but it's so good...
I hope that helps a bit! :) I'll leave more comments if I think of them, and happy deckbuilding!

You could also run Mana Confluence to help you cast your spells more easily.
