Realmwright was the first foil I ever opened (I love shiny cards), and I loved the effect, when I was starting out it was in a lot of decks.
Phyrexian Unlife before I found out about modern and power levels, I thought the card was such a cool idea (it helped that I was introduced to infect early on and have throughly enjoyed the mechanic ever since) and the artwork on the card was amazing
Borborygmos Enraged he's the commander I've had the longest, and his deck has come a long way from himself and 99 basic forests and mountains when I first started out. Plus its a lot of fun to throw lands at people

My favorite pet card, although I have many, is probably Realmwright. In budget builds, it's a godsend, fixing your mana, and making most of your untapped lands duals. But on EDHREC, it's only in 405 decks. Does anyone know why?

You'll only get one additional mana regardless. The same is true whether bonus subtypes are added via things like the Dryad, or the land innately has more than one subtype like with Stomping Ground.

I have an unhealthy passion for Realmwright. I've never seen it played, but it always manages to sneak into my 2+ color decklists. I'm usually on a budget, and commander manabases are so painful, so this card has wormed its way into my heart.

I'd like to throw in Joiner Adept in tribute to the whole: Green is the one who fixes your mana on a large scale with the full palette.
I really don't think this effect should be on a land card. Drawback or no drawback, fixing on a large scale is not something every color can do. Many colors (mostly in the older days) have ways to funnel mana into their own colors; Bog Initiate, Farrelite Priest, Manaforge Cinder. Blue have had a lot of ways to change their (or others') lands into a different land type all together, like on Realmwright, but not the full palette.

theseax: I think your assessment of Field of the Dead is correct. When I first read the card I though about putting it in the deck but at some point I changed my mind and can't remember why. It looks like it will be powerful and I'll be adding it in.
Manabond + Sunder were actually in a very early version of the deck. After playing the deck I found the cards to not have a big enough impact individually and removed them. Since then many new support card have been released so they may be worth reconsidering.
Back when Riku of Two Reflections was the general card draw was sub-optimal and relied heavily on Consecrated Sphinx . That was before Omnath, Locus of the Roil and Tatyova, Benthic Druid , now card draw is so readily available I was able to cut Consecrated. The improved card draw is an additional reason I am reconsidering Manabond.
I do occasionally suffer dead hands, but I attribute it mainly to land clumping/poor shuffling. Even a bad hand usually works itself out once Omnath enter the battlefield.
Now for the hard part. Finding new cards to consider is easy, but finding targets to cut is incredibly rough.
Thank you for the comments

The good news in losing Estrid however, is that it gives you a good excuse to cut blue entirely.
With only basic lands in your mana-base, playing three colors is hard. I know you have Realmwright to help out, but with only two colors, you wouldn't even need to rely on its mediocre ability. ( Urban Utopia is still at least playable with 2 or 3 colors, but they could be Abundant Growth which is actually decent.)
That leaves Ordeal of Thassa as your only good blue card, making the cut pretty easy.
On a sidenote, if you want enchantment to be good in modern, you probably shouldn't go for the midrange route, as it invites you opponent to two for one you, making you lose the value you are trying to gain.
But hey, good and decent are two different things, and depending on your playgroup, you may not be in need of an actually good deck to compete.
Just know that if you want to make improvements, I'd be happy to help :)
