Selesnya Guildgate Discussion

Some lands you might consider: Krosan Verge can grab Cinder Glade , Canopy Vista , Sheltered Thicket and Scattered Groves . Battlefield Forge , Sungrass Prairie , Exotic Orchard and Blighted Woodland are cheap ones to include. You may try Nature's Lore , Farseek , Skyshroud Claim , Kodama's Reach and Circuitous Route . The first three can grab nonbasic lands, while the last one can search for Gruul Guildgate , Selesnya Guildgate and Boros Guildgate . Mosswort Bridge is great with big creatures. Rogue's Passage can make Gishath go through. Boros Charm protects your board.

Any thought to running Azor, the Lawbringer ? You could gain access to an additional Sphinx's Rev effect as well as being able to lock out an opponent from casting some potentially backbreaking spells.
No Sol Ring ? This deck looks as though it can benefit from one.
You may want to upgrade the Selesnya Guildgate to Scattered Groves . It still comes into play tapped but can cycle if you don't need it or at least is fetchable with Wood Elves . If you cycle it away, Sun Titan can pull it back out. Titan could be a decent enough reason to run Evolving Wilds and/or Terramorphic Expanse [if you're looking to stay on the cheap] or Windswept Heath , etc if you're looking to really upgrade.

Very cool theme, I don't often think of white Saprolings, but it's very cool to see, and it opens a lot of doors with white as an additional color.

Been years since I've looked at this deck. I actually re-made my Guildgate deck when this set was released as well. Guild Summit and Gateway Plaza were too good to pass up. Here's my updated deck list if you're interested in checking it out.
You really need to decide if you want to go the turbo fog route. If you do, go all-in on it. If you don't, then don't run any fogs and go full control. I happen to think that full turbo fog is the way to go with gates, but it can be run either way. Anything in the middle will give you a mixed bag of tricks that you won't be able to use very well.
Running 1x-2x Crackling Perimeter gives you a great secondary win-con, in case your Maze's End gets somehow removed from the game. I've found that Terminus works really well as a board wipe, as you can get the low CMC cast for practically free, and 6 mana isn't too much for a stalling deck in case you can't use the miracle cost. I've also found a ton of success running 2x Primeval Titan. If you've got 6 gates in play, the turn you cast it you get 2 more, then the next turn you swing and win because you'll have all 10 gates in play. Really speeds up the game plan.
Guild Summit is so good man, you want 4. It's your main draw condition, and it can turn a single land play into a chain that draws you several cards if you've got things like Rites of Flourishing or Azusa, Lost but Seeking in play. I run 4x Guild Summit and 4x Rites of Flourishing and it works really well, the two synergize off each-other and both speed up the deck massively.
I tend to play multi-player games more often than 1v1. If you're in a similar boat, then running 2-4x Isochron Scepter can really add longevity to the deck, help you survive against multiple players, etc. Really great when paired with 12x fog effects, as you can always have access to a fog to use. Speaking of fogs, I'd recommend checking out Dawn Charm and Respite. Dawn Charm stops attacks directed to your face, as well as fogging when needed. Respite gives you life every time you use it, adding to your longevity in the game. Both pair extremely well with Isochron Scepter at two CMC.
You really need a way to recover your destroyed lands. The method I've chosen to use is just running 2x Elixir of Immortality. This gains me life when cast and cycles any destroyed Gates back into my library. Since I use Elixirs, this allows me to only run 1x of each gate (with the exception of Gateway Plaza and Selesnya Guildgate as those tap for my main colors). Really makes the land base easier, and makes searching for gates 10000x easier.
Anyways, just was following your deck from a couple years ago and got notified that someone commented. Figured that I'd give my two cents again, since more cards were released for this arch-type. Good luck with your Maze's End deck!
