Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers Discussion
3 weeks ago
I like Ash Barrens, if I don't need to mana-fix (for ), I can still play it untapped an utilize that turn. On the other hand, If i have Forest,Forest,Ash Barrens I can fix into a Plains. Also, if the game is going on, I can pay the to filter out another land from my deck. So it never really hurts me (only helps sometimes).
Because I don't have many Equipments/Artifacts, Tree of Tales/Ancient Den are even more valuable to me. I often tutor for equipment (multiple creatures do this, sorcery, etc). I need to attack / connect / infect so often I will need to pull a protection sword, or a Grafted Exoskeleton and have high Equip costs. Because I'm not highly combo, being able to connect faster is critical. PS: I need more combos in this deck, still searching for them if you have any ideas!
Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers never hurts though either, it's a with no penalty so have to work that in as well somewhere.

I've got two more suggestions. Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers and Hashep Oasis. Maybe you could switch them in for Ash Barrens and Tree of Tales/Ancient Den. When I tried Ash Barrens in my budget version of your deck it most of the time just tended to slow me down. Of course it can help getting you the missing landtype but most of the time it didn't do anything. Tree of Tales and Ancient Den just serve for the purpose of acitvating Puresteel Paladins second ability. They are prone to removal and even if they make Metalcraft happen it doesn't seem to matter that much because you only you only got 8 equipments included anyway and are not likely to draw them for time Puresteel Paladin is on the field. Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers on the other hand does have 8 different targets and is harder to remove. Hashep Oasis is just a more consistant version of Centaur Garden that doesn't force you to pay life for mana and doesn't need 7 cards in your graveyard to be sacrificed (even though the activating cost is higher).

Also, unless you have something counting on lots of forests being play, might as well replace one with Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers, right?

I really like Forbidden Orchard in my list; it always gives me something to hit to make snakes. Also Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers and Pendelhaven are pretty free to run in the deck and can sometimes help out.

Also, I don't like treetop village or nykthos. The deck should be be happy to run on two lands, and both of these lands are terrible for that purpose. Treetop village stops the deck from curving out which is what the deck does best. Pendelhaven is the only non basic land that I think is worth running in this deck, and I guess also Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers if youre testing Ghalta and Rhonas

I've definitely considered the more dorks/rocks route but I'm not sure I'd go with the pay to untap variety, I just don't see myself paying to untap ever.
I run Narset so I've got rocks for days. I'd probably go Mana Crypt, Chrome Mox, Signet, and possibly Talisman of Unity mixed with a few low cmc ramp spells like Nature's Lore.
I might make these changes and I might not, I honestly don't know. I've tried a bit more of a hatebear approach for now and I want to see how it goes first.
Oh and In: Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers

Also... a few more legendary lands to tutor for when you NEED that color to play somehthing. AMAZING lands with upsides
Not tutorable but powerful with Sisay (due to search then shuffle) Mistveil Plains.
Geier Reach Sanitarium is a great land to get value from.
Not a land but powerful with Sisay (and just powerful to start with too) is Sensei's Divining Top. Look at your top three and hate them all? Search with sisay and then you get to shuffle! Same effect with your Sylvan Library and if you add Scroll Rack.
