Mana Crypt Discussion

Well, red doesn't add a lot to Hermit druid, and Morselhoarder isn't really much better than Channeler Initiate, so I imagine even if color identity wasn't a problem, then red might rarely ever be run, it might stretch the landbase to a point where the increase of stability with Gamble or whatever is negated by the increase in chance to not hit colors.
Oh, and, really this list is saying a bad commander is still viable in competitive play, just as I can run Worn Powerstone over Mana Crypt and still win games even if the deck is a little worse because of it. I don't deny anywhere in the list that some commanders aren't better than others, but as the name of the list implies, it explains 'Why Every Commander Is (Viable In) Competitive.'
My source for the change in winrate for Sedris Twin was back when Sedris was the goto, and when Kess came out, what the builders for it thought would be the increase, after testing, I could find links, but am a little tired rn, and lazy!
(P.S. Thanks for the conversation, I'd love to hear more from you!)

Devastation Tide is Cyclonic Rift #2
Constant Mists should be mainboard as well.
Chasm Skulker seems out of place in this list.

Commander / EDH*
I actually want one kind of help for this, & it's about the Commander itself. Kozilek, the Great Distortion has an ability that allows of a discarding of a card to Counter Target Spell if the card discarded has the same CMC as the target. While this is a Tribal Deck for sure, I actually also wanted to make full use of the Commander & the Colorless Discounts. Dunno if Urza's Power Plant + Urza's Tower + Urza's Mine should be added, but I guess it could help as well; far from the point. I already have options for stuff like Mana Crypt, & some others, though I'd like some help w/ this regarding Aforementioned Ability. also got Void Winnower if that helps...
BTW: It's 96% Casual as Eldrazi's Golden Number for costs is 7. Remember that. Good luck. Adding the 3 Lands BTW...

Kongou_des your list without proper ramp like Lotus Petal, Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, etc. just isn't competitive at all. I am sorry to say that, because Emmara Stax is such a fun deck, with Nature's Chosen synergy and the ability to break parity on cards like Winter Orb with cards like it and Earthcraft, and the built-in combo with Squirrel Nest, but with you running fun, but useless cards like Divine Visitation, I can't help but feel you don't understand cEDH and the way many decks aim to win around turn 1-4, and set up their lock pieces by turn 1-3 to shut down their opponents.
I'd estimate that Emmara stax can be placed around High-Power, as it can win, yet often won't to its more well-tuned stax brethren with more access to colors like red or blue stax cards.

I'm really liking the recent comments. I just updated my list with some of your guys' card suggestions.
@ejikazuma .....wow..really? I never knew that about Grand Architect and Nim Deathmantle That kinda sucks..a lot.. But, I have been thinking of cutting him for a while, so maybe that's all I needed to read to make the decision.
Also yeah, Myr Battlesphere is great in this deck. I've had him in for a while. So much so that I've considered putting in Precursor Golem as well, BUT..Battlesphere combos with Time Sieve + Academy Ruins ALSO..so..yeah lol I don't think I would take out Thopter Assembly though. That's just me.
Also, that's a good point with Crucible of Worlds and the artifact lands...that's pretty dirty lol
Has anyone tried using Mirage Mirror in this deck yet? Has worked out pretty well for me so far ;)
Might also be a long shot, but anyone tried Mairsil, the Pretender??
Maybe some of you might wanna check out my list because I haven't really had any of the issues you're talking about. The only real issue I've faced is being color screwed..which brings this to mind...
Has anyone here tried or seen Breya lists that barely run any colored spells? Like, strictly artifact based combos??? No Felidar Guardian or any of the wincon cards such as Impact Tremors/Zulaport Cutthroat/Disciple of the Vault/etc, just strictly colorless artifacts that combo plus some tutors?
Though most of the deck is colorless artifacts, I do feel like I get screwed on color sometimes. And also if you have suggestions for my list, be my guest. I'm down to try out new cards.

Let'st try this again!
I have some interesting tech.
FaiberJC to answer you:
I’m assuming we are on budget.
- Liliana of the Veil - no real replacement but not essential (swap for Fleshbag Marauder or Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip).
- Liliana, the Last Hope - as above
- Mana Drain - no real replacement. Not essential. Feel free to swap it with any CS you feel will be useful. I would just skip on it. (One as none.)
- Vampiric Tutor - nice replacement could be Mausoleum Secrets. As game progresses, it becomes more useful.
- Kindred Discovery - ESSENTIAL! No real replacement for power level and synergy. If you are trying this exact list ... maybe Phyrexian Arena. But, not even close on power level.
- Military Intelligence - Not essential. Anything that gives you card advantage really.
- Mana Crypt - Not essential.

I can tell you're a long time Commander player. You have a TON of helpful advice on cards and combos, however, you mentioned an outdated rule. | (because any of the white mana they would produce with their new plains would instead be colorless, as white is outside of their commanders color identity).
This is incorrect. As of January 2016, you can generate mana outside of your commander's color identity. In the announcement, it specifically mentions Sen Triplets and Celestial Dawn as different parts of the consideration for the change.
My source: http://mtgcommander.net/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=18057
As for helping the deck owner with advice getting faster, I would recommend Mystic Remora, Search for Azcanta Flip, and Vedalken Orrery. You could probably go down 1 or two lands. Mystical Tutor, Merchant Scroll, and Enlightened Tutor also are great. If it comes down to it, you can tutor (with blue) for a tutor (black), so you can get the card you actually wanted. If you don't mind spending a bit more on mana rocks Mana Crypt and Mana Vault are good ones. Good luck!

Deck looks solid. Can't really recommend anything beyond something like Mana Crypt.
