Meteor Crater Discussion

Your biggest manabase problem is the number of lands you have that enter tapped or otherwise put you behind on mana (such as Bant Panorama ).
The ideal Muldrotha, the Gravetide manabase will be full of fetch lands, that can be recurred each turn with your commander. However, that can get a tad pricey. However, you have some other options. Even on a budget, there are a number of decent two-coloured lands, such as Sunken Hollow that will regularly enter the battlefield untapped. There are some relatively inexpensive lands such as Meteor Crater and Tarnished Citadel that will generally get you the mana you need, though there are some difficulties in doing so. Command Tower will also help you significantly.

The new artwork on Vengeful Rebirth is nice; I see that Seb MicKinnon is taking inspiration from Rebecca Guay and/or Terese Nielsen in that image.
I really wish that I had waited to purchase a Lord of Extinction for my Mimeoplasm EDH deck until it was reprinted in this set, as doing so would have saved me a great amount of money, but I made that purchase months before this set was even announced, so there was no way that I could have known about it.
The reprint of Reviving Vapors is very nice, and I may purchase a copy if I ever build a white/blue EDH deck.
Most of the lands were great, but did the game really need another reprint of Terramorphic Expanse? Also, Rogue's Passage and Thespian's Stage were great, but those spaces could have been used for lands that need reprints much more severely, such as Reflecting Pool, Meteor Crater, or Vesuva.
In conclusion, I shall purchase some cards from this set, but not too many, and I certainly shall not purchase any boost packs or booster boxes. This set did have some nice cards, but I feel that it overall was slightly underwhelming for it being the final masters set for the foreseeable future, so I hope that whatever WotC has planned for reprint sets in the future is a worthwhile replacement.

I shall predict now that treasure nabber will be insanely annoying, given how prevalent mana-generating artifacts are in this format. What was WotC thinking when they printed that card? 3 mana is far too low of a mana cost for an effect such as that; it definitely should have cost at least 4 mana, in my mind. The one positive aspect of it is that, inf a player summons it, they shall instantly make themselves a target, as every other player will seek to destroy it as swiftly as possible.
I am very pleased that my prediction of Tawnos appearing in this set proved to be true; he is very nice, but I find him to be slightly underwhelming, considering that he is an important character in the story. Hopefully, there shall be a card of Ashnod in this set, as well, since it only makes sense to have Mishra's apprentice in addition to Urza's apprentice.
RedUndead40, I agree that enchanter's bane bends the color pie, but does not outright break it; however, both Bearer of the Heavens and Worldfire outright break it, due to their being able to affect enchantments, but this is not the thread for discussing that subject. Also, was there not a red instant or sorcery in the Kamigawa block that caused enchantments to deal damage to their controllers?
We know that Saheeli is from Kaladesh and that Lord Windgrace is from Dominaria, but is there anything to indicate the home planes of the other two planeswalker generals?
I am very pleased to see that the lieutenant mechanic is returning, but much less so about the reprint of Chaos Warp; Mark Rosewater himself admitted that making that card was a mistake, so why is it being reprinted?
Also, I really would like to see another reprint of Reflecting Pool in this set, as that card very much needs another reprint, especially considering that Exotic Orchard, which is very similar to it, has been reprinted numerous times. If not reflecting pool, Grand Coliseum and Meteor Crater would be very nice reprints, as well.

Maybe Meteor Crater
These are the good 5 color lands
Also the tri-tap lands may be good as well

Also, I definitely believe that Tree of Redemption should have been demoted to a rare, because its effect, while powerful, should not have wasted a mythic rare space in this set.

The main strategy I'd go with is generating large amounts of artifact tokens/creatures to win with either riches or crazy recursion loops with giant beaters, sacking a few myr or thopters with something like Champion of Stray Souls to bring back all your giant beasties. This is just a bunch of possible options that would help with that strategy.
Suggested Lands, don't need that many basics since you won't be fetching that many in U/B

Thanks for your suggestions hoardofnotions!I'll tinker with my deck and try it out in my next game.
I really like the Darksteel Ingot suggestion, I'll be dropping my Obelisk of Esper for it, and I'll definitely be dropping Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer as well as I agree I don't want to give my opponents any card advantage.
Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur looks amazing. 10 mana is a lot of mana though. I find it quite difficult to pull off my 7 mana spells :( But I'll have to try him out! :)
Thanks again hoardofnotions!

I would recommend the following cards for helping with mana and ramp:
Exploration is a solid 1 drop that can greatly speed up your early-game ramp.
Defense of the Heart does not provide ramp, but can cheat out two of your combo pieces.
