If Mox Diamond would enter the battlefield, you may discard a land card instead. If you do, put Mox Diamond onto the battlefield. If you don't, put it into its owner's graveyard.

Mox Diamond Discussion

Hey, commenting on here with a list of things you might want to try out.
These aren't meant to all be directly added, more of just things to keep an eye on as you test and stuff. You might want to try to make room for Leonin Squire, because it's really good with LED and Razaketh combo, and Mox Diamond because it's just a powerful card .
Collective Brutality - bin raz/boon and hurt your opponent
Thoughtseize - bin razaketh/ boonweaver or a proactive counterspell
Cabal Therapy - sac outlet or same as above
Linvala, Keeper of Silence - good against green
Iona, Shield of Emeria - reanimated stax
Void Winnower - more reanimated stax
Scroll Rack - Combos with Land Tax
Ad Nauseam - If you get the cmc low enough this is an option. Just don't go below 8 life
Ashnod's Altar - Cheap sac that gets around cursed totem
Leonin Squire - Recurs LED when you're going off with razaketh
Lotus Petal - Fast mana
Weathered Wayfarer - fetches your urborg / coffers
Mox Diamond - powerful
Mox Opal - good with 15 + artifacts
Looks sweet dude and I hope it plays well

Cards like Overburden , Storm Cauldron , and Mana Breach all fall into the category of what you want to do, I think. If you are looking to cast Wildfire every game, consistently, then you need some tutors, like Mystical Tutor and Gamble , and if there are others, you need them, too. If you lean too heavily on Wildfire , though, people will figure it out an hold up counters or other answers. Sunder is good, too, if you can run ways to get your lands back on the board.
Other than that, card draw and ramp are your two best friends. Jam in all the good draw you can, and probably ramp with artifacts, like Grim Monolith and Basalt Monolith , Mox Diamond , Lotus Petal , Mana Vault , along with your package Sol Ring and Izzet Signet , and those other staple mana rocks. If you end up going artifact heavy, Metalworker might be worth fitting in.
Good luck with your build. Do you have a list yet you could share? I'd like to see it.

Hi, I played Shirei off the cuff a few times as I saw he was cute. But I like your niche view of using wiping artifacts repeatedly.
Have you thought about: Canal Dredger (lets you recur destroyed/hated out pieces) Coretapper + Magistrate's Scepter for an easy 3 card combo? Run Snow-Covered Swamp so you don't share mana with extraplanar lens (but only if you insist on using it) Blood Pet - extra mana every turn. Makes for faster shirei Skittering Surveyor and Skyscanner are both card advantage engines with shirei + sac outlet
Furthermore you should run The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Mox Diamond , Mox Opal , Dark Ritual , Culling the Weak , Mox Amber (since your entire gameplan is focused around shirei being in play anyway), Chains of Mephistopheles vs decks with draw power, Contamination , Imperial Seal . Now next is for sheer faster wins. Ad Nauseam , Pitiless Plunderer can function as a semi- Phyrexian Altar , Demonic Consultation so that you can find your win conditions faster, Tainted Pact is another competitive level backup but requires the rest of the deck to be tuned around it.
When alliegance set drops I'd also recommend Priest of Forgotten Gods
This is clearly a pet-deck. Play it however you want. But honestly? You need to make room for Toxic Deluge , Lake of the Dead , Strip Mine , Wasteland , Dust Bowl . In stax black needs every advantage it can get. But building up until you have a critical mass of mana like with Exsanguinate / whatever is just unrealistic in a competitive meta. It's far too easily disrupted.
A Crucible of Worlds & some fetch-lands would go well. That way at least you'd be able to gain mana advantage turn by turn with almost no loss. Lastly, try running Meteor Golem - I've seen him be busted with Scarecrone and other recursion effects, but ymmv. Especially if you don't like using sorceress queen.

Another great choice for a tribal deck is Coat of Arms .
It never hurts to have more creature tutors--especially in a tribal deck. A few you might consider are: Recruiter of the Guard , Eladamri's Call , Enlightened Tutor , Idyllic Tutor , Altar of Bone , Green Sun's Zenith , Sylvan Tutor and Summoner's Pact .
If you want to go faster you'll need to get more lands out fast and/or mana rocks. That's where green comes in. White has a few spells like Land Tax , Tithe and Oreskos Explorer but, green has stuff like: Burgeoning , Carpet of Flowers , Exploration Utopia Sprawl , Wild Growth , Land Grant , Crop Rotation , Sylvan Scrying , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Birds of Paradise and Bloom Tender .
Its also not a bad idea to toss in a few more instant-speed removal spells such as: Swords to Plowshares , Wear Away , Sundering Growth , Nature's Claim , Naturalize , Natural State , Dispatch , Disenchant , Afterlife , Beast Within , Crib Swap and Oblation .

A Chrome Mox could work for the Mox Diamond . Worn Powerstone is a good replacement for Mana Crypt . But if you swap them out then you should replace Trinket Mage maybe. My Mana Crypt is only there to make the mage more useful if I already have the LED. Another rock should be totally fine. The biggest problem is LED, that card is basically a black lotus in here and your chances to win greatly improve if you draw/tutor it. You could try to replace it with a Lotus Petal , never tried that but it may work. If your playgroup doesn’t mind just play a LED-proxy or ask them if you can play the petal like a LED. If you really enjoy Muldrotha and plan to play her for longer you really should consider to trade for that card or buy one. I tested it with a proxy and soon bought a copy, the power of this Card here is just unbelievable.

Took out Caged Sun and Thought Vessel and replaced with Mana Vault and Grim Monolith to improve ramp and lower CMC. I'm considering adding Mox Diamond and Mox Opal as well. Maybe remove one of my 6 drops in the process.

I'm struggling to find a strong substitute for Lion's Eye Diamond , Mox Diamond , and Mana Crypt . I was thinking the best alternate to get a very similar effect to Lion's Eye Diamond would be Lake of the Dead but you sacrifice a swamp instead of the artifact. I saw you mentioned Worn Powerstone . What do you think are the best substitutions for those three mana cards?
