Perpetual on 5color mana suggestions?

14 hours ago

Exotic Orchard and Reflecting Pool in addition to those already mentioned.

If you are going to pay 3 for a mana rock, make it Darksteel Ingot or Chromatic Lantern or Vessel of Endless Rest and get every color out them.

If lands entering tapped is what you're worried about, try Amulet of Vigor. It's got a nice mana cost and you can even search for it with Tezzeret the Seeker without killing him to boot.

Throw in some more mana rocks like Coalition Relic somewhere and the deck might function better too. Things like Vesuva might also help.

Exotic Orchard and Reflecting Pool seem like risks to me. I would run Tarnished Citadel and Mana Confluence instead. You could run City of Brass in place of the Citadel, but I wouldn't recommend it since Chromatic Lantern doesn't stop Brass from hurting you.

With as many planeswalkers as you have already, I would also recommend The Chain Veil, because Teferi's -1 and Tezzeret's +1 would allow you to abuse it several times.

Okay, let's do this! cracks knuckles I love the snarky tone of the description, btw :)

The stax elements of this deck seem strong, mostly. You're missing Winter Orb though. I would normally suggest Crackdown and Meekstone and Moat, but they interfere with Alesha :( Perhaps Smoke or Mudslide? I don't personally like Chalice of the Void in EDH, though, there's just too much variance in the mana cost of powerful cards. And since you're reanimating things anyway, might as well play Big Daddy Smokestack!

However, the land base seems...a little off. 29 mana-producing lands is REALLY really low, doubly so since you will have to pay some of your own "taxes". I know that the Karoo lands help a bit, but I still wouldn't trust this mana base without SIGNIFICANT testing. You might also find the Filterlands useful to mana fix (Rugged Prairie, Fetid Heath, Graven Cairns). I also never leave home without Reflecting Pool, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, etc. Basically, look at Lilbrudder's Leovold mana base and color-shift it XD

I'd frequently choose to run Rest in Peace over (or in addition to) Leyline of the Void. Always good to run another combo piece!

Phyrexian Arena over Underworld Connections, 1000%. The former doesn't lock down a land, which is even more important in this deck.

I'm actually not really a fan of Nahiri, the Harbinger in EDH. Is she just there for utility, or are you planning to use her ult? If the former is true, there are better ways to get card filtering. If the latter is true, what's your finisher?

That being said, planeswalkers can generally be really good in stax decks. You might get away with including some other walkers that play more into your gameplan, possibly Sorin Markov to reset lifetotals? :)

Night's Whisper over Wild Guess: less color commitment, more card advantage.

No Necropotence? :( I guess maybe the card is too much color commitment in tri-color.

If you're going to run Mox Opal with only 18 artifacts, I'd try and include the three on-color artifact lands as well.

False Prophet seems odd here, since you have the ability to reanimate creatures with relative ease.

Personally, I'd substitute Austere Command over Merciless Eviction, though it does depend on how you plan to use the board wipe.

Land Tax does wonders to fix your mana, and recover after an Armageddon...

If you have oodles of money, Imperial Recruiter pairs well with Recruiter of the Guard.

Yes or no on Mox Diamond? Your land count is already low, but it's so good...

Swords to Plowshares over Path to Exile: you don't want to give your opponents land ramp in a stax deck, lol.

I hope that helps a bit! :) I'll leave more comments if I think of them, and happy deckbuilding!

Seems like a solid deck. Have you considered using Winter Orb or maybe some MLD to mitigate the benefit your opponents get from drawing cards. I'd also add cards like Noxious Revival or Regrowth.

And lastly, you need to get rid of the tap lands. They slow you down unnecessarily. Since you're gaining life a lot, maybe City of Brass and Mana Confluence are justifiable replacements. Reflecting Pool too.

Damn, that is a tough budget to work with. I love the excuse though. So, lets work with it. Human tribal seems to be the way to go, as we need disruption more than anything else.

4 Mother of Runes - vs other creatures and removal and burn
4 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben - vs storm, mill, vehicles and burn
4 Meddling Mage - vs everything
3 Mayor of Avabruck  Flip - mass pump
2 Sylvan Safekeeper - vs removal
3 Ethersworn Canonist - vs elves and storm
2 Grand Abolisher - vs counterspells
2 Deftblade Elite - vs elves
2 Kambal, Consul of Allocation - vs storm and burn, add more from the SB.
4 Phyrexian Revoker - vs storm, elves, vehicles, death and taxes

4 Swords to Plowshares
4 Duress
2 Lead the Stampede

4 Reflecting Pool
4 Ancient Ziggurat
4 City of Brass
4 Mana Confluence
2 Plains
1 Swamp
1 Forest

I think that this is the cheapest thing I could think of.

Welcome on T/O.

It's a great place with lots of helpful players and interesting decks. A good place to improve your deck.

After reviewing your decklist I have the following land suggestions to add:

Going to 36 lands, looking at your mana curve, is probably a good thing to do.

I did not play with or against Sen myself, so I find it hard to pick a few cards that I shouldn't be playing. Looking at the curve I would cut:

The rest is up to you.

Have fun and if you like to check out my favorite deck, then feel free to visit it here.

Enjoy!

PartyJ: Yeah yeah yeah, I need to get my hands on a Plateau. I just don't have the $60 sitting around (and that old art, yuck). Maybe if I can find a copy on deep discount somewhere...

Yesterday I would have said that Arid Mesa was far too much. But since the enemy fetches are being printed in MM17, who knows...

Reflecting Pool is something I'll consider :)

Needle Spires has actually, astonishingly, won me games before. Turns out that in the late game, if all of my creatures have been lost, a land that can carry a sword with double strike is better than you'd think, haha. Plus my GF gave me my foily copy as a gift, so I'm partial to it ;)

Kor Haven is a good idea, I'll have to add that. And I think you're right that the hideaways can be pretty slow. Spinerock Knoll has pulled its weight, but I think you're right that Windbrisk Heights needs to be cut :(

Thanks, that's a lot of help! Haha.
