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.
: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool.

Mox Diamond Discussion

Mox Opal and Mox Diamond of course would make opening ramp more consistent and more explosive, but would be a pricey add if that's a concern. Jeweled Amulet is a bad mana rock, but it does do one thing well that is hard to come by outside of green colors: ramp you on turn 1. It's basically like a bad Llanowar Elf since you have to "reload" it, but it would also help early turn explosiveness in the games you draw it in your opener.

Here’s some budget recommendations for the most expensive cards :
There really isn’t any replacement for Mana Crypt .. it’s the best card at what it does. You can put any mana rock that’s 2 or less mana.

Phyrexian Obliterator is a good card when it comes to blocking, especially in a mono-black deck.
I’m surprised you’re not running Animate Dead , Necromancy or Reanimate . These cards, especially if paired with Entomb / Buried Alive and Dark Ritual can put down a fatty of your choice real fast. Massacre Wurm is a good reanimation target in addition to your Grave Titan .
Ramp is a premium in EDH. Mox Diamond and Mana Crypt set the gold standard after Sol Ring , with Mana Vault and Chrome Mox following them. Unfortunately, these cards will cost you about the same as a black-market kidney. Charcoal Diamond , Coldsteel Heart , Mind Stone , Prismatic Lens and Lotus Petal are affordable options to consider. Also, with a lot of 2-drop-rocks, Ancient Tomb becomes a powerful t1 play —- it’s about $20 now, after the reprint in UMA.
Toxic Deluge is a good board-wipe to consider.

I judge Moxen based on how capable they are in the early game, especially for casting Balan on Turn 3:
- Mox Diamond requires a land to discard. It's the tamest downside of all of them. The first one I'd consider.
- Chrome Mox requires a coloured card to imprint. Could exile something important more often than not. Distant second if I really wanted another Mox.
- Mox Opal requires metalcraft. If I have an artifact-light opener, it can't do anything. Maybe better than Chrome.
- Mox Amber requires a coloured Legend. This deck has a measly three in the 99, and only one of them could have it active early enough to matter. Worthless.
- Mox Tantalite requires being suspended. It comes off suspend on Turn 4 at the earliest, and becomes a dead draw very quick. Hot garbage.

Fatal Push, Underground River, and Mental Misstep are under $5 dollars, so I'm not going to give replacements on those, but for Ancient Tomb , City of Traitors , Glimmervoid , Inkmoth Nexus , Mox Opal , and Mox Diamond , I'd replace those with 3 Islands and a Swamp and add a River of Tears and Spire of Industry .
For Force of Will , I'd use Steel Sabotage , it acts as an occasional counter and protection for your artifacts if you bounce them in response to removal, or to reuse them in case of Renaming a new card with Revoker or getting another cast trigger on Sai, etc.

Sorry, allow me to clarify; I have most of the deck, minus some of the more expensive pieces, specifically:
Those are the ones I know off of memory that aren't in my collection, or are above 5$ that I don't have. Steel Overseer getting reprinted makes it easier to get a hold of it.

The 'when' was a holdover that I forgot to change. It's the rest of the example that matters. So,
- "If a player searches their library, they can only find cards from the top four cards of that library."
The confusion is because Aven Mindcensor uses standard replacement effect wording that state you replace the regular search with searching a different selection of cards. It outright says that you're replacing searching your library with a different action.
Some replacement effects do replace an action with something else that includes that action ( Alhammarret's Archive , Mox Diamond ), but it's clear on those cards because they say exactly that on the card.
You are still searching, yes, but searching isn't unique to libraries, which is why this is so unclear to me. We've been able to search hands and graveyards with spells like Cranial Extraction which have existed since before Aven Mindcensor was first printed.

Thanks a lot, mattxd. I'm really glad you want to build this list!
You could swap:
The Old Duals - The 2 pain lands missing and a extra Island
Scalding Tarn - Any other fetch land with blue, another Island if you can't afford it.
Mana Crypt , Mox Diamond , Mox Opal - They do not have a substitute those 3 are the best mana rocks in the game. Howerver, you could try some drop 2 mana rocks like Mind Stone and Prismatic Lens or even a Chromatic Lantern
I hope it helps you!!! o/
