Basic lands have the supertype "basic" in their typeline. Some older printings of basic lands don't have that supertype listed, but it is listed on newer versions and on the gather page for that card. There are currently 11 basic lands in Magic:

Plains
Island
Swamp
Mountain
Forest
Snow-Covered Plains
Snow-Covered Island
Snow-Covered Swamp
Snow-Covered Mountain
Snow-Covered Forest
And Wastes

RubyOrzhov - The deck didn't start out to expensive, but its been one I play and tweak the most over the past couple of years. Looking at it now yikes, lol. Snow-Covered Plains are important for Sunstone, but you can ditch Scrying Sheets if you're trying to knock down the budget. Kor Haven can slot in for the Maze of Ith for a couple of bucks cheaper, and it taps for mana (or more straight up removal like Condemn works too!). Glacial Chasm is a new edition, but before then it was just a plains and I was still running a Selfless Squire as another fog. Serra's Sanctum is completely non-essential. I'm not even running enough enchantments to get as much value from it as I'd like.

Land Tax and Tithe can be Gift of Estates and Oreskos Explorer. Temporary Truce is from Portal so it costs a few bucks because of that, but for much less you can run Truce, which is the instant version of it. Or just slot back in the Mentor of the Meek I took out. Angel of Finality can be Stonecloaker. In the general theme, you can run Mobilization and Knight-Captain of Eos for a nice repeatable fog as well. This works well if you've got out a way to protect the Captain.

Academy Rector and Crucible of Worlds are the two expensive cards I put the closest to be needed, but you can work around that too. Just the way EDH works there's still cards I've NEVER drawn in the deck, so I can't say any one is completely needed unless its the actual wincon. Plea for Guidance is your budget Idyllic Tutor or Rector. And White has enough ways to find land (including Eternal Dragon) that CoW is just something nice to have if you can run it.

Thanks for the comment, I hadn't really taken the time to think about a more budget friendly version of this lately!

I run a Snow-Covered Plains/Sunstone/Crucible of Worlds package in my Avacyn deck, and Sunstone is a card I really have grown to love. I run more plains than you do though.

Overall deck looks really solid!

Hey! I found your deck because you're one of the few Kemba EDH Decks that runs Throne of the God-Pharaoh. I've also been working on a Kemba deck for a few months now and it's really interesting seeing the similarities and differences. If you're interested, take a look: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/puss-in-boots-kittens-in-mittens-cat-tribal-edh/

Maybe we could help each other out?I notice you run Kusari-Gama. How does it work for you? I was reluctant to run it because I was worried it might be slow. My boyfriend runs a Skullbriar, the Walking Grave Voltron deck, which I think has influenced the speed of my deck a great deal. I'm always trying to tune it to be faster, perhaps to the detriment of my deck's performance. I don't see you running Fireshrieker which I think is a HUGE mistake. Did you know double strike will trigger equipment abilities like Sword of Fire and Ice twice? If Kemba has Fireshrieker and Umezawa's Jitte equipped, you can get four counters from a single attack instead of just two.It's cool how you're running tron lands like Urza's Tower ect. Does it work? If so, you may want to add Vesuva. One of the ways I'm getting extra mana is to run Extraplanar Lens and Snow-Covered Plains so that I get double mana from each "plains" but nobody else does. Does Hour of Reckoning pay off for you? How come you don't run Cathars' Crusade? Aren't you worried about Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite killing your 2/2 cats? Does Serra Ascendant pay off? Does Stonehewer Giant ever feel like a waste for you? Doesn't he get removed before you get to use him? Maybe look into Strionic Resonator it doubles the number of cats Kemba gives you! Have you considered Land Tax?

Post a response in the comments of my decklist! I'd love to "compare notes."

Since you have Extraplanar Lens, I would recommend using Snow-Covered Plains instead of regular ones. Depending on your meta, it would help make sure you don't give other people extra mana. I'd also consider adding in Godsend, Angel of the Dire Hour, True Conviction, Angelic Arbiter, Chancellor of the Annex, and Celestial Mantle.

Awesome looking build! Here are my ideas since I've gone through your update:

Boompile - Replace Nev Disk?

Key to the City - Swing with any creature that has Celestial Mantle attached.

How is your mana ramp...? Not seeing much. Maybe switch over to Extraplanar Lens and Snow-Covered Plains?

Hey, this deck is really cool!

Thoughts on White Sun's Zenith or Austere Command?

Also, running Snow-Covered Plains means your Extraplanar Lens doesn't boost opposing plains.

I think your land base needs a lot of improvement. I would recommend going full tilt on the Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Power, Enlightened Tutor plan.

Notes: Recommend adding Caged Sun to improve consistency of the plan.

As i'm sure you know Snow-Covered Plains are extremely useful with Extraplanar Lens's global effect turning off the competitions normal Plains. I love Expedition Map and Weathered Wayfarer in the deck but I would recommend only using extremely high impact lands to go fetch with it. Try not to dilute your speed/ramp.

I would take out all non basics except Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Homeward Path (Only if your meta has creature stealing), Kor Haven, Strip Mine, (Only if your meta is colour greedy and you can mana screw ppl eg. Kaalia of the Vast) and Buried Ruin. Obviously replace with extra snow lands.

I would recommend Scrying Sheets (insane card advantage).

Notes: Most ppl recommend 38 lands for EDH deck with normal CMC commanders. You might want to add 1-2 extra snow lands.

If you are happy with my feedback I could take a closer look at the rest of the deck. Cheers.
