Riptide Laboratory Discussion

You can probably cut down on basics to add a few more utility and manafixing lands. Alchemist's Refuge and Winding Canyons will let you flash your creatures in. Your deck is very focused on your commander so Homeward Path and Riptide Laboratory are ways to protect her. Obligatory Ancient Tomb suggestion, lol. Some people find them unnecessary in two colored decks, but I've always been a fan of City of Brass and Mana Confluence .
Also, if you're going to include Intruder Alarm, then you should also include Thornbite Staff .

First and Foremost, you need more lands. Control decks run more, in general, but with a commander that costs 6 mana, you'll want to be able to consistently cast her. I would run no less than 40 lands, since you're running Burgeoning, Fastbond, Swordtooth, Mox Diamond, and Azusa. That's a suite of cards that is hungry for lands at all points. I would also run Exploration , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , Skyshroud Claim , Oracle of Mul Daya , The Gitrog Monster , and Tatyova, Benthic Druid to complete the land-ramp package.
You don't need to be running Reliquary Tower or Library of Leng in a 3-color deck with a draw 7 in your command zone. You want to dump, refill, dump refill, not draw 15 cards and sit on them.
In terms of bad cards, I would cut Warping Wail, Manglehorn, Dissipate, Essence Shatter, Snap, Assassin's Strike, Probe, and Temple of the False God.
Personally, I like Chasm Skulker , Damnation , Syphon Mind , Riptide Laboratory , and Eldrazi titans for this deck, as well. For more suggestions, I suggest checking out the Damia page at EDHREC. Good luck!

Voidslime Disallow #2, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite saw Jin-Gitaxias, this fits stax, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger stax, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker stax, Yavimaya Hollow protect utility creatures, Riptide Laboratory protects commander maybe add Snapcaster Mage to reuse instants, Unwind over Bant Charm, Noble Hierarch over Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic, Squeeze because you run 0 sorceries.

Dust Bowl: This card doesn't fit the game plan that this deck tries to execute. Our plan is to try and resolve a polymorph effect as soon as possible with some form of protection. Dust Bowl suits the more slow control decks where you want to grind their lands away bit by bit while maintaining board and card advantage. Just like Rishadan Port this also requires a good amount of resources. Resources that we would rather use for our main game plan.
Lonely Sandbar: An island is better if we want a land drop and we run enough 1-drop cantrips and draw that give us more value then this.
Riptide Laboratory: I think this card belongs more in the tempo/more creature version of this deck. The only value that this gives up is with clique and we want to actively kill clique. It does have it's uses as protection but I think other cards deserve it's spot in the deck.
Jace, the Mind Sculptor: I may include him in a future version but atm he's benched. He is by far the best planeswalker to include in this deck but I think he may not be able to give us enough value for our plan.
Order of Succession: This a prime sideboard card. If your local scene has a lot of voltron or hexproof commander decks then this card will be the bane of their existence.

Some cards i found quite useful in 1v1 mtgo :'(
Cavern of Souls : Mirror matchup counter wars?
Dust Bowl : Because other people play maze of ith / Caverns / cradle / enchant lands / etc?
Tectonic Edge (same as above)
Lonely Sandbar : draw later on.
Mishra's Factory : land beats! best beats!
Riptide Laboratory : free protec! / reusability
Jace, the Mind Sculptor does what he needs to do for this deck!
Order of Succession stealing commanders is devastating in 1v1! especially the green ones!
Treachery same as above but more costly to get off first!

you need a way to kill nekusar very fast if you play Helm of the Ghastlord if you do not have 1 it draws your whole deck you can also have Riptide Laboratory to bounce nekusar to hand after drawing a good amount.
