Saltcrusted Steppe Discussion

On the proliferate theme Inexorable Tide does huge work. It does feel like a 5 mana investment that does nothing immediately but if it stick it has some serious potential.
All my other suggestions are way beyond $5 sorry :p

Poly_raptor, thank you for the awesome card suggestion - I had no idea Caves of Koilos had so much story behind it. I actually remember opening this card with the old border back in high school. That foil would run me about $20 :( Including it would be more of a question of Flavor vs. Function. It'd have to jockey for Godless Shrine 's slot. For now, i'm going to just keep it on the back burner as I have a long-term plan for the manabase - get Revised Duals for the deck. So far, i'm well on my way. Speaking of mana...
ShadowedLucifer, for Bayou 's slot, i'd use Woodland Cemetery . That was the card in that slot previously. For Scrubland however I'd slot in ether Saltcrusted Steppe (that was the card previously in that slot) or Isolated Chapel . Hope those suggestions help - by the way, are you building a deck of similar design? I'd love to see your ideas.

As Throne of Eldraine Spoilers are flowing like a Fairy Tale Epic, I'll try to explain my reasons for things not mentioned for Allied Colors here yet. Before I do, Delay looks great, but how does Suspend work, & how good is it against opponents? I also suppose all ten Ravnica Signets & Talismans are better than Arcane Signet ? I'm intrigued about this; it seems like:
Is this where the rankings stand for Overall Power for these Mana Rocks? Just checking to be sure.
Finally, I still am guessing there's no substitute for Demonic Tutor unless anyone can say different. For now, though, It's a lost cause. Anyways, the list:
Arctic Flats Snow Taplands
Gavony Township Innistrad Location Duals
Grasslands Tap Fetches
Horizon Canopy Future-Sighted/Horizon Duals (Missing 4 other allied cards.)
Riftstone Portal Graveyard Duals (Or something...)
Saltcrusted Steppe Storage Duals
Sungrass Prairie The Crappy Fetchlands
Veldt Duals Utilizing Depletion Counters
Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree Ravnica Location Duals
Anything else as Dual Lands you may already be familiar w/. I just wanted to mention the worst Allied-Only, Nearly awful Allied-Only, & nothing else. Since I'm reduced to a situation where nearly all my cards in my Landbase need to not ETB Tapped, I want your opinions on the worst of the worst. & I'd like your opinions for the ones that didn't get noted that ETB Tapped, but is still good; which bumps off, for instance:
Stirring Wildwood Man Lands
Temple of Plenty Scry Lands
Selesnya Guildgate Guild Lands
If I'm missing out on anything, either:
A: It's a more common Two Color Land than these types.
B: So many use them, there is no point in mentioning them here.
Sorry for the inconvenience for all these kinds of lands. I just want to see as too which ones are worth adding... Thanks in advance.

Some hints I can give about your manabase:
Blighted Woodland is also a great land to ramp you when you don't have anything to do in the turn. Sungrass Prairie , Battlefield Forge , Fortified Village , Command Tower and Exotic Orchard can also be all stars here.
I would take out Temple of the False God , Drownyard Temple , Opal Palace , Saltcrusted Steppe and Tranquil Expanse for the lands above. Colorless mana doesn't help casting Mayael the Anima , so you better avoid it.

Some new updates of the deck:
- Jedit Ojanen of Efrava : too slow, often too small in the late game to be effective
- Abundance : It was either this card, Ajani, Strength of the Pride or Stalking Tiger , and both of the latter had only just been added. Abundance is a nice combo with Sylvan Library , but it's too difficult to assemble without more enchantment searching effect.
- Kemba, Kha Regent : With only 6 pieces of equipment, this isn't the best option anymore. In the original commander deck where 14 were available, there is a stronger case, but I've felt this as being an increasingly underwhelming draw.
- Saltcrusted Steppe : Very underwhelming as a storage land in this build, it feels like an easy cut.
The new hotness:
- Felidar Guardian : This has some synergies with the ETBs of other cats such as Regal Caracal and Qasali Slingers , but otherwise it's just another cat body.
- Sword of Feast and Famine : A Bear Umbra effect that can at least benefit from Hammer of Nazahn .
- Enlightened Tutor : An easy way to fetch out a Sol Ring early game or Mirari's Wake late game to ramp you into Arahbo, Roar of the World and pay for attacking triggers or to pay for a big Finale of Devastation .
- Gavony Township : Had been on the radar a long time, but only had access to one once another deck was deconstructed.

However, I really want to put a Gavony Township in that deck, so I am contemplating removing the Mage-Ring Network , since a land that can produce only colorless mana may not be the best option for a four-colored deck, but I wish to ask the advice of other users here, before I make a decision. Ironically, that deck did have the township, originally, but I removed it in favor of Karn's Bastion .

I have an EDH deck with Atraxa as its general, and that deck has all four triple lands that are supported in her colors ( Arcane Sanctum , Sandsteppe Citadel , Seaside Citadel , and Opulent Palace ), which are great lands, but they enter the battlefield tapped, so I am seeking replacements for them.
I cannot believe that I did not consider the “storage lands,” the lands that use storage counters, when I was building the deck, as they would be absolutely perfect for a deck that focuses on the proliferate mechanic, but I wish to seek advice from the other users on this forum before I put those lands in my deck.
The storage lands that I am considering for my deck are Calciform Pools , Dreadship Reef , Saltcrusted Steppe , and Mage-Ring Network . What does everyone else say about this? Are those lands good for an Atraxa EDH deck?
