Playing Snow-Covered Island and Extraplanar Lens can give you the Boost in Mana you're looking for,without helping anyone else

dana.roach Thanks for the suggestion- it's a good one! I'll have to think about it, though, because I do see some drawbacks.. Wayfarer's Bauble can be played on Turn 1, cracked on Turn 2, giving 4-mana on Turn 3, and it doesn't care if the first two lands are colorless utility lands. Also, Wayfarer's Bauble can be cracked at instant speed after holding up counterspell mana during opponents' turns. I do really like the fact that Mitotic Manipulation puts the land in UNTAPPED, which is a huge upside, and even better is the fact that it does NOT say permanent "you control" so it could theoretically hit a lot of stuff, though the most likely besides Snow-Covered Island would be Reliquary Tower, Sol Ring, Thought Vessel, Rhystic Study, and Strip Mine. I think I might need to include both!! This deck has a very low land count, mostly because all the cantrips can dig/filter lands when needed and their main purpose is to simply produce drakes.

What is the purpose of Seat of the Synod? It is effectively just a Snow-Covered Island. Is it because it is also an artifact? And how is that useful?

Hey, I was looking over this list, would Laboratory Maniac/Demonic Consultation/Tainted Pact combo fit? it is 3 two card combos in 3 cards, and it is great with the amount of card advantage this deck can acquire!

If you are concerned because of the landbase not supporting Tainted Pact, drop down to one basic of each type and then add:

1x Tarnished Citadel

1x Snow-Covered Island

1x Snow-Covered Swamp

1x Gemstone Mine

1x Gemstone Caverns

1x Exotic Orchard

1x River of Tears

1x Reflecting Pool

1x Darkslick Shores

1x Darkwater Catacombs

1x Cephalid Coliseum

These will replace the 11 you dropped, and for what else I would consider dropping, Vapor Snag could be easily dropped for Chain of Vapor, or Unsubstantiate, either way I think it would be an upgrade.

Consign probably could be dropped for a Delay, or any Unsubstantiate, Spell Pierce, Chain of Vapor, or like anything else, I understand it has discard too, but I don't think that is worth it.

What do you think?

You're welcome TKDbeast! I also forgot to mention Supreme Will when I was talking about digging cards and ways to recur them. To answer your other questions,

  1. Gifts Ungiven helps me get whatever I need at the moment. Am I short on blue mana? Ill get an Island, Snow-Covered Island,Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, etc. Do I have enough mana for Mindslaver lock and I have Academy Ruins on board, then I'll grab Mindslaver! It's one of those cards that is very useful for card advantage and can help me either close the gap or widen it even more.
  2. That choice is up to personal preference. Most Mono-Blue Tron Decks run about 7-9 creatures to make room for more spells and such, some people up to 11 creatures. I've talked to people that have cut out the mages for Fabricate since they both can be played only during your turn and it can be used again by Snapcaster Mage. But me personally I don't like to go below 7 or 8 creatures. It is true that they die to kill spells and can't be used again with Snapcaster Mage but, with the cheap cost it does help to get some early creature board presence. Same thing with Walking Ballista. Sure you can save him and make him huge later but other times it's just better to make a 1/1. You can grow him later or snipe something early and get him back with Academy Ruins.

Also Extraplanar Lens with Snow-Covered Island is just disguising in mono colored decks, especially if you protect it from being blown up with counters. I went and looked up the land for you btw, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds
