Now that I finally have a chance to look at this... :)

Your removal package seems pretty good. I'd still always try to include a Beast Within, and I think Condemn is the weakest link in this deck's removal (since often you want to remove something that's not attacking).

Since all of your birds will have flying, Gravitational Shift and Favorable Winds seem very good.

Your color-fixing looks pretty good overall. Rupture Spire is a second copy of Transguild Promenade, and I'd generally use Reflecting Pool over Meteor Crater (since the latter requires you to already have cast the spell in question to be able to get use out of the land). Chromatic Lantern and Coalition Relic also help a LOT.

I've built budget landbases like this before, if you want to take a look at this deck's manabase: *RETIRED* An Hour of Wolves: Tazri EDH

Speaking of budgets, I'd cut Cavern of Souls most likely. It's not SUPER relevant in the deck, and it's nearly $50 :(

I saw Karakas in your maybeboard, but I'm afraid to tell you that it's banned in EDH :(

If this turns out to be fully tribal, you could run Cover of Darkness to great effect.

The one big thing you're missing here is draw effects. If the deck turns out to be creature-heavy, you could try cards like Shamanic Revelation or Kindred Discovery or Distant Melody. Otherwise, effects like Abundance, Sylvan Library, Rhystic Study, etc can help a lot :)

Hope that's useful commentary! :) I'll take another look when you've messed with the deck a bit more.

Hi! Fun deck in my favorite tri-color combo! Let's see if I cant't help ya out!

usually I give suggestions for decks as a whole, but seeing how your mana base is just basics, I'll focus on that instead so as not to info dump haha

This is the basic template for a mana base that I use. It's consistent but not optimal; it gets the job done.

this list will run you around $50, which is very budget relatively but I understand if that's too much for you at the moment. Investing in your mana base is the safest thing to invenst in because you can use all of these for any other Jeskia build, or scrap the parts for 1-2 other multicolor decks. If you stick with this deck forever that's okay too, because even though you may change the decks' parts, strategy, and synergies, your mana base will remain relatively intact.

Hey Megalomania i have some suggestions for ya.

  1. I noticed that you had Day's Undoing for Timetwister. I dont think thats worth it, days is a pretty bad card and timetwister is near impossible to replace if you dont have one. Id cut it for something else.
  2. Not a fan of Selesnya Signet in a deck that is so heavy in black and blue. If you need more ramp id suggest Cabal Ritual or another dork such as Llanowar Elves or Priest of Titania (who is a total all star in specific metas)
  3. The birthing pod line is really cool but feels a bit too cute to me. Id replace it with Survival of the Fittest. If you want to keep the birthing pod line (one of my favorite cards so i cant blame you) I think that Kiora's Follower is a bit excessive. Its utility as a dork is pretty limited at 2 mana in my opinion. Can be tough to cast on t1 or 2 if used as a dork as well.
  4. I see the purpose of Grand Abolisher but i dont think it sees much play outside of flash hulk because of the double white. You are such a small splash of white that it feels really hard to pull casting him off consistently.
  5. Not a fan of Reflecting Pool as it really hurts your t1 ramp plan. Id replace it with a Forest.

As far as replacements, if you are running labman, why not just include the doomsday combo? Otherwise I think you can just cut labman and use Reality Shift and Beast Within lines to kill your opponents with infinite mana. Since Im assuming you dont have Timetwister, you can loop your deck via Memory's Journey, which doubles as grave hate.

And speaking of hate, I think you could benefit from adding Mental Misstep and possibly Swords to Plowshares if hatebears are a bothersome. Otherwise your list looks pretty solid man!

Ps just saw walking ballista in there. I don't think you need both it and labman. I like aetherflux more than labman as well

Again, running 32 lands in such a phat CMC deck will do you in horribly. I would suggest running more rainbow lands like City of Brass or Reflecting Pool to help smooth out your colors. I'd cut every dragonlord except for Dromoka, as she acts as both a beater and Grand Abolisher. When it comes to piecing together a mana base, I would suggest starting with 40 lands, then take away 1 land for every two mana rocks/dorks/ramp spells in your list. Cost reducing spells, like Urza's Incubator don't count in the total, as they don't directly provide you mana.

If you are concerned about smoothing out your mana base, cards like City of Brass and Reflecting Pool might be helpful.

I'm not so sure about Bontu's Monument. If you were running in mono black, I'd say for sure. But with three colors, how much does it help? Urza's Incubator would be much better, but is more costly. Herald’s Horn would be better, too, and isn't as costly as the Incubator, and helps you cast all your creatures, not just the black ones.

I think Anowon, the Ruin Sage would be a good card for you to run, as edict effects are almost always helpful. How much work does Duskborne Skymarcher do for you? To me, he just doesn't seem worth it, and Anowon would be a much higher value creature.

I'm impressed by the number of -drops in here right now. Almost as many as the land count!

I'd take out some of the frivolous cards and focus on dragons, or permanents. Dragonspeaker Shaman and Dragonlord's Servant fit in. Bloom Tender nets you five mana with your commander out ;)

Even with a few more pieces of ramp like Fellwar Stone, Solemn Simulacrum, and/or Gilded Lotus; def get your land count up to at least 36. Reflecting Pool is cool. One or more of each basic would be good because Blood Moon exists

You have an underlying token theme that might be better served in another deck like Marath, Will of the Wild or Ghave, Guru of Spores. They may need to come out to help streamline your strategy. Unless your opponents are hilariously slow; Goblin Offensive isn't a good fit. Rampaging Baloths is better with a lot of lands or fetch lands. Assemble the Legion mmmaybe worth keeping if you add Triumph of the Hordes wink wink

All of your current instants could be counterspells. Quietus Spike is an old pet card of mine, but slow when most of the creatures are a high cmc already. Hostility is meant for spells like Lightning Bolt

Along with Triumph of the Hordes you have a one-shot win with your commander: Tainted Strike. Also Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon!!!

Above all have fun! Obviously some options I've offered are quite expensive. Build it how you want it. PEACE
