Savage Lands Discussion

My suggestion is do these three things:
1.) I'd take out Blooming Marsh, Cascading Cataracts, Crucible of the Spirit Dragon, Inventors' Fair, Spire of Industry. There are better options that aren't an arm and leg. Some suggestions are the wedge and shards lands:
- Arcane Sanctum, Crumbling Necropolis, Frontier Bivouac, Jungle Shrine, Mystic Monastery, Nomad Outpost, Opulent Palace, Sandsteppe Citadel, Savage Lands, Seaside Citadel
2.) Add at least 2 more lands (I personally run 38 lands) to help fix the lack of land draw.
3.) Additionally, I'd focus on 2 to 3 specific colors to help with the lack of efficient mana fixing in the deck.
After that, I'd test that out and see how the deck works then.

Hey, good job in the Commander league.
Haste is an ability you really want with Silvers, you already have Heart Sliver which is good, but I suggest also adding Blur Sliver and Firewake Sliver. Crystalline Sliver has already been suggested, but I'm going to suggest it again since it can be a game winning two drop Sliver. You already have Winged Sliver, but I suggest also adding Galerider Sliver more flying evasion and it's a one drop Sliver.
Harmonic Sliver can be devastating to your opponents. This Sliver is so good that some nonSliver decks play it because it gives you value when it ETB. The ability it gives Silvers when they ETB is not a may ability if your opponents don't control any artifacts or enchantments and you do then you must destroy one of your own. To prevent this play Darksteel Ingot. It's a three drop Rainbow mana rock with indestructible, it can't be destroyed. Target it with Slivers who ETB to prevent having to destroy your own.
A couple of underrated Slivers who can draw a lot of cards to consider adding: Synapse Sliver and Dormant Sliver. Hibernation Sliver is also underrated as it can save any Sliver from removal, board wipes, exile, etc. It's ability has no mana cost and doesn't target, it can be used with any Sliver who has shroud, you can save Crystalline for the cost of 2 life.
Sliver Queen has already been suggested and if you want to win with an infinite combo with Slivers then it's the best Sliver to include. Horned Sliver has also been mentioned, it's great with Sliver Hivelord giving it trample.
Amoeboid Changeling and Unnatural Selection can make any creature an opponent controls into a Sliver letting Overlord permanently gain control of that creature adding it to your Sliver army. Mirror Entity can be a Sliver, it's a Changeling and it can pump an entire army of Slivers. All Slivers get this power and toughness boost while keeping all their abilities.
Cards to consider adding:
- Crystalline Sliver
- Galerider Sliver
- Harmonic Sliver
- Firewake Sliver
- Amoeboid Changeling
- Mirror Entity
- Unnatural Selection
- Blur Sliver
- Hibernation Sliver
- Synapse Sliver
- Dormant Sliver
- Horned Sliver
- Darksteel Ingot
- Kodama's Reach
Cards to consider cutting:
- Steelform Sliver
- Sliver Construct
- Reflex Sliver
- Plated Sliver
- Opaline Unicorn
- Mistform Sliver
- Groundshaker Sliver
- Diffusion Sliver
- Blazing Volley
- Stinging Shot
- Reduce / Rubble
- 6x Lands
Lands to consider adding to upgrade the manabase:
- Command Tower: best Rainbow land for a five color manabase in Commander, only $1.
- Exotic Orchard: budget Rainbow land.
- Unclaimed Territory: budget Rainbow land to cast Slivers.
- City of Brass: Raindow land, but $6.
- Path of Ancestry: ETB tapped Rainbow land, the scry if using it to cast a Sliver is very good.
- Grand Coliseum: ETB tapped Rainbow land.
- Cinder Glade, Canopy Vista, Prairie Stream, Sunken Hollow, Smoldering Marsh: Battle lands are good with Basic lands and Farseek since it can fetch one of them.
If choosing to play ETB tapped lands such as Blossoming Sands instead consider the Tri-lands: Jungle Shrine, Seaside Citadel, Savage Lands, Frontier Bivouac, Opulent Palace, etc? These lands ETB tapped, but can make one of three different colors instead of only two.
Good luck with your deck.

I like to use Manabase Crafter (http://manabasecrafter.com/) every time I look for lands. Select the colours of your commander, click your commander, and it will give you every possible mana source for those colours.
Along with most of the things mentioned already by others, I'd like to endorse the Jund Panorama, Savage Lands, Reflecting Pool, and Darigaaz's Caldera. These all tap for any of your commander's colours.

I feel like you may have gone a little overboard on the self-recurring creatures. Maybe in place of the worse ones you could include a few more graveyard tutors like Buried Alive or Entomb. That way you won't get stuck with a hand full of cards that do nothing on their own.
There are a few really strong draw engines that fit into a deck like this. Deathreap Ritual lets you draw tons of cards off of all the death triggers you generate, while Phyrexian Arena just gives you an additional card each turn. Humble Defector is a nice draw effect on a creature, that can either curry favor with the table or just be sacrificed in response to his ability to keep the card draw to yourself.
Finally, I think your land base could use some work. I'm really not a fan of the tri-filter lands, Savage Lands would be much better. With the fetches you are running, it would be a good idea to include some dual lands with basic land types. Some good ones are Cinder Glade, Smoldering Marsh, Canyon Slough, and Sheltered Thicket. In addition, I really like the new Path of Ancestry . Even if you only get to scry once off of casting your commander, it's still a tri-land with upside.

MagicalHacker: Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord fits the bill alright. But as mentioned, OP already had a golgari deck, So I am making the assumption that they should still have the cards available (please let me know if that's not the case). The addition of a few red/X lands (see Savage Lands, Gruul Guildgate and friends, Transguild Promenade, Rupture Spire) as well as staples like Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds would be more than sufficient for splashing red, givin gaccess to Prossh, Skyraider of Kher who is $2 from star city games.
Prossh will provide the deck with good token production which is much more resilient to graveyard hosing than a monoblack deck which relies on recursion eninges. The addition of green also gives access to ramp cards such as Rampant Growth, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Explosive Vegetation, etc which will drastically increase the speed of the deck compared to the heavy reliance on mana rocks that mono black will need (also helps with colour fixing).
Red will also give access to cheap wheel effects such as Reforge the Soul ($3 from SCG), Chandra, Flamecaller ($4 from SCG), Dragon Mage ($1 from SCG) which will drastically help increase the deck's output, not to mention cards like Fecundity and even just getting additional value off Skullclamp as the tokens produced have 1 toughness ompared to the typical 2 toughness that you'd see in a monoblack deck (since you're most likely going to be making zombies). Plus spells like Shamanic Revelation will draw you a crap load of cards (50c on SCG).
For low budget decks, having access to green makes them much better overall compared to any other colour. It has a good range of effects and havin access to land ramp is vital. And head to head, I would put my money on a Prossh deck compared to a Anowon deck of the same cost any day. It's more explosive and Prossh himself provides the deck with a self contained win condition.

Ok ok so, i have a commander deck with Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund as the commander. The deck itself has functioned pretty well up until recently, i have been getting completely rekt early game. Do keep in mind i have not been playing long and do not have a great understanding of cards or of a good build, in fact this is the first deck i have ever built. All i really need help with is early game because dinos have been destroying me as of late. The deck is built as follows:i have no clue what im doing dragons

First of all if your ramping into door to nothingness you either want duel lands or tri lands and Mana rocks such as the various border posts or signets. Secondly you want a secondary win condition, and my advice is (staying in colourless theme) Darksteel Reactor. Although slow, many people will try to work out ways to eliminate it because it appears to be a threat. Finally you need more blockers to help protect your plan. Keeping theme, Etched Champion and Myr Servitor fit nicely here.
