: Gain one mana of any colour.
19 hours ago
Man, it really hurts me to see cards like
in commander. Also it seems to be common for decks to have way to little ramp (4 in this case). I would highly suggest running about 10 in every deck. In this deck, you might want to favor rocks that can help you cast
Rakdos, Lord of Riots
a turn early.
Cards that come to mind are:
- Rakdos Signet
- Talisman of Indulgence
- Fellwar Stone
- Coldsteel Heart
- Charcoal Diamond
- Fire Diamond
- Pentad Prism
- Star Compass
- Sphere of the Suns
- Wayfarer's Bauble
There are also great colorless rocks, as well as rocks that don't help you cast Rakdos early, but that can give you big advanteges in the mid- to lategame. Please consider that you might not always be able to count on Rakdos's ability to cast your expensive creatures. If your commander gets stolen or permanently removed, you should have ways to not outright lose:

I think that since you have access to green, land ramp like Rampant Growth and Wood Elves and Cultivate are better than mana rocks like Firemind Vessel and Manalith . That being said, I think Astral Cornucopia is fine because you can abuse the counters and Commander's Sphere and Chromatic Lantern are fine cause you need the fixing. You could also probably swap out Prophetic Prism for some land ramp.

You asked for help, so here I am:
Paradox Engine is banned.
Cut Manalith and Chromatic Lantern . They are fine cards but there are more efficient ramp options at only 2 mana:
Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Creativity , Fellwar Stone , Mind Stone , Thought Vessel and Wayfarer's Bauble .
Some of your sorceries seem a bit clunky, like Cruel Ultimatum or Life's Finale .
Evacuation and Devastation Tide are great boardwipes, Crux of Fate is a solid budget option and Toxic Deluge is amazing but a bit pricy.
Wurmcoil Engine , Noxious Gearhulk , Neheb, the Eternal and Massacre Wurm are all quite highly costed and don't synergize well with the rest of the deck.
If you want to be mean, you could replace them with extra turn spells: Time Warp , Part the Waterveil and Karn's Temporal Sundering are reasonably priced, both in money and mana.
I personally would throw out all Guild Gates and raplace them with literally anything that does not enter tapped. A good budget replacement would be the pain lands: Underground River , Shivan Reef , Sulfurous Springs .
Lastly, cheap and efficient removal pieces I would consider are: Doomblade, Go for the Throat , Reality Shift , Rapid Hybridization and Pongify .

Some relatively inexpensive cards that should help...
I'd remove at least a couple of the Pacifism type enchantments in favor of removal such as Swords to Plowshares or Generous Gift . You could use at least a couple of inexpensive [$$-wise anyway] boardwipes like Fumigate and Hour of Revelation .

Not sure I understand the inclusion of Worn Powerstone over Sol Ring unless its just a placeholder until you get another copy. For scrying power Crystal Ball is strictly superior to Seer's Lantern , [though I would add the Crystal Ball to replace the Manalith as pretty much any mana rock is better here]. My understanding is that despite the low CMC of the deck, Feather is actually fairly mana hungry so perhaps more artifact ramp may be in order to get the engines going sooner.
While I haven't played with or against Feather yet, I watched a few videos and Feather dies a lot even with the instant speed protections so my feeling is you'll really miss not having Swiftfoot Boots , Darksteel Plate , etc. to free up your mana to just buff and draw cards.

Pretty much any mana rock will be better than Manalith . You may have enough other ramp to just drop it entirely though you could replace with something with cheaper CMC like Pillar of Origins or Coldsteel Heart .
You could really use some additional removal. Some suggestions: Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile will permanently get rid of a creature; Vandalblast , Wear / Tear , Crush Contraband , Force of Vigor , Krosan Grip are all good ways to deal with problematic artifacts and/or enchantments; Beast Within and Chaos Warp are great catch-alls. You obviously don't need all of these but you should think about adding 2-3 so you have a chance to break up some decks' gameplans.

Get rid of Manalith , Pristine Talisman , and Darksteel Ingot for the Talismans: Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Dominance , and Talisman of Progress . Condemn should be replaced by something like Utter End , Anguished Unmaking , Murder , Go for the Throat , or some better removal spell that will actually remove something. You are running in here, so play to it's strengths. Instead of Curse of the Swine , I'd run something more like In Garruk's Wake or Plague Wind . Yeah, they are a high CMC, but they're budget, and one-sided. Day of Judgment would be a decent option, too.
You're running Wizard's Retort with only one Wizard in your deck. Cut it for 2 CMC counterspell or another removal piece.
Book of Rass is Book of Ass in this deck; the only colors I run Book of Rass in is Boros, because Boros sucks at card draw. With all the lifegain, Necropotence could be worth the risk to run. can be tough to pull off in a three-color deck, but it might be worth a shot in this deck with all the lifegain. Arguel's Blood Fast Flip and Erebos, God of the Dead are other options to consider.

For playing a short time you did a nice job! But there are a few cards that you need to scrap as fast as possible (in my opinion). Those cards are Manalith and Cystbearer . For Manalith are better options and Cystbearer does not do somehting with the rest of the deck. Try Chromatic Lantern , Commander's Sphere , Mana Geode or Spectral Searchlight . Or use something like Cultivate or Kodama's Reach to ramp.
I also mis Daybreak Coronet in your deck. It is a solid aura for a low cost.
Good that you use board wipes! But what if you could protect your commander more ( Shielded by Faith )? Than boardwipes would become even beter.
I hope this helps. You are on a good way and keep having fun :)
