Nukulargear on Making Inastrad Great Again

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.

Neotrup on Prismatic Geoscope and what counts ...

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.

Mangara of Corondor seems odd, since he has summoning sickness and can't be used as a surprise. Perhaps Oblation in his place?

You desperately need an Extraplanar Lens here; the card is amazing. Consequently, a shift to Snow-Covered Plains might benefit you, though generally I don't bother because it's such a corner case.

I don't like Terminus in general, even though you have Scroll Rack to set it up as your draw. When not cast for the Miracle cost I find it disappointing.

The deck could use Hyena Umbra and Gift of Immortality now that your commander makes them cantrip. Possibly a Heliod's Pilgrim too. Depending on how it works out, Helm of the Gods could be handy too.

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 Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle , 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.
