Pearl Medallion Discussion

Hey there! I'm usually the land and ramp helping guy, and you wrote that is one of your issues, so here, I hope I'll be able to clear that up a little bit. Let's start off with lands.
I see shock lands, fetch lands, and of course horizon lands, along with a few stand alone multicolor lands. Not bad! Keep ALL the shocks, and keep ALL the fetches. Fetches can search for shocks and shocks are really good. Usually I like to recommend filter lands (like Mystic Gate) or fast lands (such as Seachrome Coast). Horizon lands are also some of my all time favorites, but playing four of magics colors can be quite tough. For three, four, and definitely five colors, I usually recommend more multicolor lands. Your average CMC is also quite high, so maybe 1-2 more lands would be pretty good if you think you can. That said, consider some of the following lands.
- Mana Confluence
- Ancient Tomb
- Forbidden Orchard
- Maybe Gemstone Mine
- Maybe Gemstone Caverns
- All black decks should also include Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
- Wasteland or Strip Mine?
- Tarnished Citadel
- Maybe Reflecting Pool?
- Now here's an interesting idea. Atraxa proliferates, so what if you based some lands around this as well? Things like Aether Hub, Mirrodin's Core, Tendo Ice Bridge, now suddenly can be used much more than once with Atraxa. Maybe worth a shot no?
So basically, consider much more things that can add a color of your choice, they give you much more options! The other lands are very good too, so you have to decide which one would be more beneficial in your opinion, though to me, I would cut Horizons and triomes for the ones I mentioned.
That said, let's move on to some ramp! Arcane Signet, Chromatic Lantern, and Sol Ring are pretty good, but I might have some you find better. Green is amazing for ramp, so by adding amazing green ramp spells, not only are you now getting the best ramp options, but also you are evening out the color pi for your deck! Consider some of the following
- Birds of Paradise
- Nature's Lore
- Three Visits
- Bloom Tender (It taps for FOUR mana with your commander out!)
- Lotus Petal
- Noble Hierarch
- The Medallions, Emerald Medallion, Pearl Medallion, Jet Medallion, and Sapphire Medallion
- Land Tax
These are all so AMAZING. There's also the fact that charge counters can work for ramp too. Astral Cornucopia, Shrine of Boundless Growth, Coalition Relic, etc. I;m sure there's a lot I'm missing, so you may want to look into charge (or Other) counter ramp.
In the end, I would pretty much consider some more multicolor lands like City of Brass, lands that work with proliferate, some more green ramp like I mentioned, and maybe some ramp that works with Atraxa's Proliferate ability as well! If you find any of this helpful be sure to check out, upvote, and give me suggestions on some of my decks, (Double Trouble EDH, The x Files EDH, and many more! Anyways though, I hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!!! Happy tapping!

In mono white, I would use more ramp and card draw.
Sol Ring; Mind Stone; Caged Sun; Gilded Lotus/Nyx Lotus; Smothering Tithe; Knight of the White Orchid; Endless Horizon/Land Tax; Burnished Hart; Marble Diamond/Coldsteel Heart; Pearl Medallion; Gift of Estates; etc.
Mind's Eye; Staff of Nin are both decent for some card draw.
Remember, you can exile YOUR attacking creatures with Settle the Wreckage to ramp up.
I'm gonna use some of those cards in my Celestial Crusade, which isnt updated yet, Im super lazy... :D
Cards I would remove:
Ajani's Mantra - only 1 life per each four turns is meh.
Teyo, the Shieldmage - hexproof is nice, but Im not really fan of Teyo.. I would rather go with Orbs of Warding for the same mana cost or add some ramp/draw.
Fencing Ace - It seems there isnt much ways to buff up this dude, should be more useful in some aura/equipment orientated deck.

Thanks for the headsup Labrodor64! I'm surprised no one in my playgroups mentioned it. That is definitely the kind of feedback I'm looking for The_Fallen_Duke, I'm currently teetering between low CMC weenies and high CMC finishers but the deck is struggling to balance it out. Those mana rocks you mentioned and potentially something like Pearl Medallion are an absolute must, I'm thinking of also adding in extra value cards such as Oketra's Monument to improve what I have a bit, but I'm still looking at what to cut, and what to focus on.

I've been looking for some help on My Uril Storm deck. Uril Storm, you say? Well, this deck is based on getting a critical mass of creatures like Sram, Senior Edificer and Argothian Enchantress, and a bunch of cost reducers like Pearl Medallion and Starfield Mystic, and the immediately drawing 20+ cards in one turn and one-shotting opponents with Uril or cards like Brallin, Skyshark Rider Flip. Enjoy!

CMC is a bit high for Boros. You don't need a Sun Titan since there isn't much it can return. I would add a Smothering Tithe and a Land Tax, maybe even a Ruby Medallion, Pearl Medallion, or Mana Vault if you got them. The angels are nice but I think you should make it more giant-centered and get a Herald's Horn and other cost reducers to replace them or even a cheaper value angel like Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice. You also need some drawing power which is difficult in Boros. So maybe try a Knollspine Dragon or one of the Chandra's. Hope this helps a bit.

- Illusionist's Bracers works wonders on Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero but maybe you don't need it.
- Pearl Medallion is awesome in mono white deck and I would run it above Sol Ring
- Norn's Annex is a great control peace.
- Distorting Lens is good with Lawbringer and Lightbringer but a bit slow.
- Slaughter the Strong and Dusk / Dawn a other good massremoval options.
