Hey, good start. The budget is $500? It's not even at total $200 yet :)

My suggestions are to finish the manabase and improve the overall mana with additional mana sources. Budget ($5 or less each) cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting/upgrading:

  • Golgari Rot Farm
  • Gruul Turf
  • Rakdos Carnarium
  • Evolving Wilds
  • Barren Moor
  • Forgotten Cave
  • Tranquil Thicket
  • Rampant Growth
  • Circuitous Route
  • Golgari Locket
  • Naturalize
  • Murder
  • Victim of Night
  • Trumpet Blast
  • Bone Shredder
  • Scourge Devil

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

My suggestions are to improve the manabase and overall mana production. There's several budget lands that can be added. When playing three or more colors focusing on making the manabase good is just as important as the rest of the cards in the deck. You've been playing this deck for five months and haven't had a Command Tower ? The avg. CMC here is 4.0 that's high with only 33 lands. Consider cutting several high mana cost cards for more one/two/three drop mana sources?

Lands ($4 or less each) to consider adding:

Additional mana sources to consider:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Simic Guildgate
  • Temple of the False God
  • Simic Growth Chamber
  • Desolation Twin
  • Swarm Intelligence
  • Mind's Dilation
  • Spelljack
  • Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind
  • Intet, the Dreamer
  • Samut, the Tested
  • Core Prowler

Good luck with your deck.

Arbor Elf only seems like it wouldnt do much because you don't have any Stomping Ground in your manabase. your mana base should basically just be 4 Wooded Foothills , 4 Stomping Ground , 4 Rootbound Crag , and then basics.

Small lands update:

I've decided to cut all six off-color fetches and to replace them with one of each basic land and Rootbound Crag , Sulfur Falls and Hinterland Harbor . This is to power the deck down just a notch and to accommodate to the unspoken agreement of my playground to not play off-color fetches.

Rootbound Crag might be a good budget option to replace those Guildgates. They enter untapped off every land but no land and if you only have Crags out on the battlefield.

Good Luck!

i'd also highly recommend dual lands like Wooded Foothills , Stomping Ground , and Rootbound Crag .
