Correct me if I am wrong, but it would look like you win conditions are to either kill with Derevi damage, or animate your enchantments with Starfield of Nyx and continuously swing out with indestructible permanents once Avacyn hits the field. Another combo I see is to Strip Mine your opponents until they rage quit as you are running Crucible of Worlds and Exploration. If your aim is to kill with commander damage, then equipping Derevi with Argentum Armor would be an excellent way to do so, and blow up a permanent. It could replace Sacred Ground as the enchantment would be useful in a situation where your opponents do play land destruction. Otherwise, it will be pretty much a vanilla 2/2 when Starfield comes in to play. There is also Always Watching which will give your creatures vigilance which will be helpful for your animated enchantments.

Sacred Ground seems to be a great combo with the "genju" cards

You could build the deck around Sacred Ground. It won't save you from combat damage, but it does mean any sacrifice effects, land destruction, creature removal, -1/-1 counters, and so on will only kill your enchantment, but save the land itself.

Sacred Ground also gets around cards like Death Cloud or Liliana of the Veil.

Since you're already in red, you can also play Chained to the Rocks for even more shenanigans. So if they blow up your Mountain, it only removes the Chained to the Rocks.

It's even more shitty for your opponent if you play Life from the Loam and manlands.

Also, if your store does store credit, save it up. My lgs will even order cards from other stores if he can get a decent deal store to store. Save the credit for singles. Then build your collection slowly. Get an idea of what you like and move towards it. I was fortunate enough to have all my shocks and fetches so with winnings i bought every fast land i could get with store credit. That way if i wanted to build a deck i didn't have to get lands for it. Hell, i built a bw eldrazi and taxes deck from extras i had. Just had to fork up for aether vials when they were 25 each. Play a cheap deck for awhile. If you can, pick up Fatal Push for sb and that deck should be good for you. I have to use Sacred Ground in board because stupid ponza is a deck but you can use whatever you have to fit your group. Good luck.

Kid at my lgs plays tron. In esper on the play I useImp's Mischief and Sacred Ground. Along with Mana Leak and Negate they don't stand a chance. I just fetch basics to get around Blood Moon. On the draw I use Stubborn Denial, Spell Pierce, and discard to avoid blowouts. My deck is built to take down aggro so creatures are no problem since my meta is really aggro and ramp midrange heavy.hope this helps. Any questions just ask.

NeoHikamaru on Sacred Ground vs Annihilator?

Does Sacred Ground work with annihilator if I decide to just sacrifice the same land over and over again? xD

Is there any other card or you can think of that can negate the annihilator effect?

Sacred Ground can help protect the gates and maze. And if you're going to run them then Crackling Perimeter and Hold the Gates could be worked in.

Since you say land creatures, you can try out Sacred Ground and Planar Cleansing. You also can try out Liege of the Tangle, although it may be slightly outside of your budget range (Last time I checked, it was roughly $6 or so, it may have dropped).
