Opulent Palace Discussion
1 week ago
In all of my decks, slightly less than half of the cards are lands, and, in the specific case of my Atraxa EDH deck, 40 out of the 100 cards are lands.
Of those lands, slightly more than half of them (24) are basic lands, a decision that I made to protect myself in the case that one of my opponents is sufficiently cruel to use Blood Moon or Ruination .
I previously had in this deck all four triple lands that Atraxa supports ( Arcane Sanctum , Opulent Palace , Sandsteppe Citadel , and Seaside Citadel ), but I removed them in favor of the "storage lands" that Atraxa supports, since the deck's focus on the proliferate mechanic should allow those lands to generate large amounts of mana with little investment.
Now, however, I find myself wondering if I can risk reducing the number of basic lands in this deck to 20, so that I may keep the triple lands, since they are excellent for this deck; the deck does contain Chromatic Lantern , but I cannot rely on drawing that card every game, as it is only one card out of one-hundred.
What does everyone else say about this? Should I keep twenty-four basic lands in my Atraxa deck, or can I afford having only twenty, to allow the triple lands to remain in it?

Well, it's good that it works then :) It also depends on the deck of course. I think I'll just have to see. Another suggestion for your deck would be Path of Ancestry btw. It's better than Opulent Palace and even has synergy with 4 of your creatures (excluding Muldrotha herself) :)

I have an EDH deck with Atraxa as its general, and that deck has all four triple lands that are supported in her colors ( Arcane Sanctum , Sandsteppe Citadel , Seaside Citadel , and Opulent Palace ), which are great lands, but they enter the battlefield tapped, so I am seeking replacements for them.
I cannot believe that I did not consider the “storage lands,” the lands that use storage counters, when I was building the deck, as they would be absolutely perfect for a deck that focuses on the proliferate mechanic, but I wish to seek advice from the other users on this forum before I put those lands in my deck.
The storage lands that I am considering for my deck are Calciform Pools , Dreadship Reef , Saltcrusted Steppe , and Mage-Ring Network . What does everyone else say about this? Are those lands good for an Atraxa EDH deck?

There's a couple others you should consider.
Shadowblood Ridge = OG Filter
Arcane Sanctum = Tri-Land
Crumbling Necropolis = Tri-Land
Frontier Bivouac = Tri-Land
Jungle Shrine = Tri-Land
Mystic Monastery = Tri-Land
Nomad Outpost = Tri-Land
Opulent Palace = Tri-Land
Sandsteppe Citadel = Tri-Land
Savage Lands = Tri-Land
Seaside Citadel = Tri-Land
Ash Barrens = Cycles for any color of mana which you can play untapped.
Mirrodin's Core = Comes in untapped. Can give you any color of mana the very next turn.
Vivid Crag = Vivid Cycle
Vivid Creek = Vivid Cycle
Vivid Grove = Vivid Cycle
Vivid Marsh = Vivid Cycle
Vivid Meadow = Vivid Cycle

May I suggest you Crumbling Necropolis , Frontier Bivouac , Opulent Palace , Savage Lands , Jungle Shrine , Murmuring Bosk , Sandsteppe Citadel , Seaside Citadel , Vivid Grove , Vivid Crag , Vivid Creek , Rupture Spire , Transguild Promenade , Gateway Plaza , Exotic Orchard , Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse
Bloodfell Caves , Cinder Barrens , Dismal Backwater , Forsaken Sanctuary , Foul Orchard , Graypelt Refuge , Highland Lake , Jungle Hollow , Rugged Highlands , Scoured Barrens , Stone Quarry , Submerged Boneyard , Swiftwater Cliffs , Timber Gorge , Tranquil Cove , Wind-Scarred Crag and Woodland Stream .
I think it will increase the consistency of finding your colors. You can even lower your land count to 39 this way.

bushido_man96 as for Amulet of Vigor yes your absolutely right i did only put in there to speed up my tap lands but with 12 pure Taplands Temple of Silence , Sandsteppe Citadel , Rakdos Carnarium , Orzhov Basilica , Opulent Palace , Nomad Outpost , Izzet Boilerworks , Gruul Turf , Golgari Rot Farm , Dimir Aqueduct , Boros Garrison and Azorius Chancery , and 6 ETB tap unless lands Blood Crypt , Godless Shrine , Isolated Chapel , Overgrown Tomb , Sacred Foundry and Watery Grave think me having Amulet of Vigor is justified.

You can add in Cryptolith Rite for another way to have your slivers to tap for mana. Other than that, 5 color mana base is pretty hard. I would say since you are going for a budget land base, you can replace all your guildgates with the tri-color lands like Arcane Sanctum , Seaside Citadel , Jungle Shrine , Crumbling Necropolis , Savage Lands , Mystic Monastery , Nomad Outpost , Sandsteppe Citadel , Opulent Palace , and Frontier Bivouac . At least they will add an additional color in comparison with the guild gates. For budget multi-color lands there are lands like Exotic Orchard and Forbidden Orchard that are decent. Unclaimed Territory , Path of Ancestry , Cascading Cataracts , Sliver Hive , Ancient Ziggurat , and Mirrodin's Core can be some options for a decent 5 color mana base.
Hope that helps!
