Snow-Covered Plains Discussion
1 week ago
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.

A basic land is any land with the supertype basic. A basic land type is any of the five land subtypes that appear on basics. They are related, but there are differences. Wastes is a basic land with no type. Sacred Foundry is a nonbasic land with two basic land types. The way Prismatic Geoscope works is when you tap it it looks at all your lands and checks whether you control a plains, island, swamp, mountain, and/or forest and for each "yes" it gets, you get a mana of any color.
If, for example, you control 3 Wastes, 1 Snow-Covered Plains, and 1 Plains, it would tap for 1 mana of any color, because even though you control basic lands with 3 different names, the only basic land type among them is "plains".
If instead you controlled, 1 Sacred Foundry, 1 Tropical Island, and 1 Sunken Hollow, it would tap for 5 mana, because even though you don't have any basic lands, there are 5 basic land types among the lands you control.
Now, if you control 1 Eye of Ugin, no other lands, and a Prismatic Omen, it would tap for 5 mana, because even though you only have 1 land that doesn't naturally have any basic land types or even tap for mana, it currently has all 5 basic land types.

Since the change to the rules in commander where colourless is now a "colour", I've been questioning exactly how much value can one get out of Prismatic Geoscope? I've been reading up on the rules both on Gatherer and on mtg gamepedia's wiki and they don't explicitly state one way or the other on this.
Do Snow-Covered Plains still count as a Plains or are they their own type for the purpose of Prismatic Geoscope? Do Wastes now count as a basic land type? IE, what's the most Prismatic Geoscope can tap for? 5, 6 or 11?

I wish you all the luck in the world with your new commander! He seems powerful, though my flagship Voltron deck can't shift commanders as easily (since I'd lose a whole color).
Since you changed commanders, though, it's time for a new round of suggestions!
I'm not a fan of Diviner's Wand - it seems far too conditional here. Do you have enough mana floating around to pay its draw cost repeatedly? It's expensive to play and equip - do you find the conditional benefit powerful enough? I just don't generally like 3-and-3 equipment that only give a minor and conditional benefit.
Careful with the Sword of Light and Shadow...now that you're playing more auras, it can't be equipped to an enchanted Sram.
Hope that's helpful! :)

Hey there, I think you have to lower, even if a little, your CMC. So we have look at cards above 4 mana like Storm Herd, a 10 mana sorcery, that can be replaced by White Sun's Zenith that we can reshuffle and cast at instant speed. Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is excelent BUT in a mono white he needs Grand Abolisher that I dont know if you have never played against it bau is an ingredible pain.... Open the Vaults is great but except for Martyr's Bond the enchantment and majority of artifact can be recovered by Sun Titan, and the other part with Buried Ruin and/or Treasure Hunter (but he is a little bleh). Anyone will pay 2 life in EDH for Norn's Annex and attack with some large fattas so, if you want this card, it can be replaced by Ghostly Prison that we can recover with Sun Titan. The lands: 35 is ok but not all-basic, so you need some cheap land like Buried Ruin from before, Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Terrain Generator is of great help, High Market for False Prophet, Kjeldoran Outpost for tokens, Mirrorpool expecialy to evade counters on your mass removal, Mistveil Plains is never bad reshuffle come cards, Scrying Sheets and Snow-Covered Plains in a mono with are very very good but the snowplains cost some money, Westvale Abbey Flip I think in a token theme is fitting realy good, Winding Canyons to save mana in your turn for other spell, Blighted Steppe for the token theme. That's what came to mind for changes for cars more or less alike, to improve the equipment part Brass Squire can be of use with Argentum Armor and Batterskull for the most. A little combo I will add is + , these two or nim alone for recall some creature that died on the moment, and Wurmcoil Engine or Knight-Captain of Eos for infinite colorless mana and token. Tell me what you think.

Any particular reason for the Snow-Covered Plains?
Regular ones are cheaper

That is what it Boils down too.
I've seen many people playing 3-color decks that run half normal basic and half Snow-Covered basic.
It is all dependant upon who you are playing and which they are using. Like RedUndead40 said, they use regular Basics. As I use all Snow-Covered in my decks, I would never benefit from their Extraplanar Lens.
Wake of Destruction can work either way. It simply targets the lands you aren't using.
Freyalise's Radiance also hammers down hard on Snow-Covered.
It is for these reasons that Snow-Covered are not a strictly better Basic Land. I believe they are better as most people don't include them and/or pack hate for them. My Meta allows me to take advantage of them without drawback, but somebody could easily hate me out of a game.

Hey, thanks for the suggestions.. Here are my thoughts on them:
I really like having an instant answer by Disenchant to opposing enchantments/artifacts and my CMDR already provides a great way to create creatures to equip to.
Stone Haven Outfitter is a great opportunity to max out on Skullclamp-Draws.. especially when my opponent is trying to destroy/exile the Skullclamp as fast as possibly, cause it's an awesome threat. I will try that guy/girl in the 99 :D
Kor Outfitter only equips once per etb and I don't really have any flicker effects.. but maybe Brass Squire is a better way for that. Although when I have Puresteel Paladin out, there is no cost in equipping.. Maybe trying the Squire a bit.
Cobbled Wings is one of the few Equipments that gives flying to a creature besides Bladed Pinions and I like the equip for 1 more than equip 2+first strike..Maybe Fleetfeather Sandals or cutting it in whole, because of the evasion that the swords are providing through color-protection.. I will see :)
Angel of the Dire Hour is a pretty slow panic button in my opinion. I like Comeuppance a lot more :D and it's pretty cool that it works for Planeswalkers as well so my Nahiri is protected too.I already have Sun Titan in the 99 ;) he's awesome!
