Scoured Barrens Discussion

I think Scoured Barrens , Terramorphic Expanse , and Evolving Wilds can be cut for utility lands. Strip Mine , Wasteland , Tectonic Edge , Ghost Quarter , Phyrexian Tower , Bojuka Bog , Emeria, The Sky Ruin all come to mind as better than those 3 lands that I mentioned.
I also you're playing too many lands at 39.
I also think your deck is missing out on a lot of ramp cards. Tithe , Knight of the White Orchid , etc., are all pretty useful. I like creatures that get you lands like the knight (or things like Solemn Simulacrum because they also fuel your sac engines.

Hi Jayd0nlink thx for the suggestions. I think I am going to try to get lands under 1 dollar. I think I am going to add Seat of the Synod . Cascading Cataracts is a nice choice I am going to add. Since this deck is trying to get other peoples cards, I need the opponent to have cards I want. I want to take out Oloro, Ageless Ascetic , also Colossus of Akros . I know Blightsteel Colossus is an amazing add, but its not really a necessary card. Wurmcoil Engine is also usually a automatic add in most EDH decks but, ehhh, I think its going in my Daretti deck. Coastal Breach technically is not necessary. I would rather use target removal, or bounce.
Cards going in------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cards going out----------------------------------------------------------------------- - Blightsteel Colossus - Oloro, Ageless Ascetic - Colossus of Akros - Wurmcoil Engine - Coastal Breach - Inkwell Leviathan - Scoured Barrens - Persuasion
THX for all the suggestions. IF you could tell me how its looking, that would be great. Again, just in case, this deck utilizes other peoples cards, and hands,bouncing stuff they already casted. Letting them draw cards for our use. Helm of the Host can do wonky stuff with our commander, letting us control other peoples hands, more than one.

May I suggest you Crumbling Necropolis , Frontier Bivouac , Opulent Palace , Savage Lands , Jungle Shrine , Murmuring Bosk , Sandsteppe Citadel , Seaside Citadel , Vivid Grove , Vivid Crag , Vivid Creek , Rupture Spire , Transguild Promenade , Gateway Plaza , Exotic Orchard , Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse
Bloodfell Caves , Cinder Barrens , Dismal Backwater , Forsaken Sanctuary , Foul Orchard , Graypelt Refuge , Highland Lake , Jungle Hollow , Rugged Highlands , Scoured Barrens , Stone Quarry , Submerged Boneyard , Swiftwater Cliffs , Timber Gorge , Tranquil Cove , Wind-Scarred Crag and Woodland Stream .
I think it will increase the consistency of finding your colors. You can even lower your land count to 39 this way.

Hey, CaptainBanana42 has the right idea, you can use Night's Whisper , Sign in Blood and Read the Bones help to smooth your draws. Phyrexian Arena or Underworld Connections are also very helpful. Land Tax , Tithe or Gift of Estates can be good to make sure you have multiple turns of land drops especially since you're playing Godless Shrine .
Another approach to consider is add more cards that can find Skullclamp because it's a draw engine: Enlightened Tutor , Open the Armory , Stoneforge Mystic . Enlightened could also get Necropotence another draw engine. Tutoring in the early game for Ascension, Smothering or Bitterblossom is also very good. Armory or Mystic could also get Deathmantle or Greaves.
Consider improving the manabase?
- Caves of Koilos
- High Market : sac outlet. It's helpful to be able to search for a sac outlet with Expedition Map.
- Ash Barrens : basic landcycling.
- City of Brass
Good luck with your deck.

Since you have a relatively low CMC deck I think you could go down to 36 lands safely and Temple of the False God looks like the cut if you do. You only have 3 cards of 5+ CMC so its impact is less than in a higher end CMC deck.
Because of the triple maybe Necropotence ? Black isn't really a 'splash' in the deck but it is the smallest wedge of your 3 colors and a triple devotion cost might stall you often enough to want a different option. Card draw isn't a cut you make lightly so on the fence with this suggestion...
Sylvan Scrying or Crop Rotation might be better options than Tempt with Discovery . Unless there's a land combo that I'm not seeing in doing a brief view of the deck list, using something cheap to grab Gavony Township seems to be the ideal move.
The other 2 cuts I know I'd probably only make after doing some playtesting to see what proves itself to be too low impact to warrant keeping its slot in the deck. I might be tempted to make Anafenza the commander but that might also be a playtesting decision.
Overall I like the theme/flavor and look of the deck. I suspect if this was a deck handed to me to play for a pick-up game of EDH, I'd have a good time piloting the deck. +1 incoming.

Myriad Landscape is a great land that shouldn't be too hard to find! Scoured Barrens from Fate Reforged is another inexpensive two color land. Shambling Vent isn't too expensive (although you never know how or when that could change with manlands in other formats). Command Tower is reprinted in every commander set, and should be in every multicolor commander deck.
Also, I'm curious why Kambal is the commander instead of Arvad the Cursed . Almost every creature in this deck is legendary, so I'm also inclined to recommend Thalia's Lancers , Urza's Ruinous Blast , Yawgmoth's Vile Offering , and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth .
As for what to replace, I'd suggest cutting Shadowfeed , Rest for the Weary , and Chaplain's Blessing , since those cards don't really help your deck function, or accomplish very much at all. Single-instance lifegain cards tend to be on the underperforming side, unless they have a strong synergy (such as Licia, Sanguine Tribune 's cost reduction!)
Hope this helped!
