: Yeah, any budget dual land would be fine! At the time Cascade Bluffs was one of the cheapest dual lands you could use but that card just keeps going up and up! At this rate Steam Vents is going to be cheaper.
So yeah, use whatever. Although I will say that, when you are "storming" off of Experimental Frenzy, it's nice when the lands come into play untapped so you can us them to continue casting things off the top of the library. So actually, Shivan Reef might be the best option. I mean, you'll be tapping it for colorless 99 percent of the time anyway. :)

As with any eldrazi deck: I would recommend All Is Dust . Great board wipe for everything except your creatures, and it can't be prevented via indestructible or hexproof. Personally, I see Leyline of the Void as more of a sideboard card that should only be put in the game if you need some graveyard hate. I would also recommend some dual lands for you, like Steam Vents , Watery Grave and Blood Crypt as well as, Dragonskull Summit , Sulfur Falls and Drowned Catacomb (just chose a few of them, don't put all of them in your deck}. That's all that I can think of at the moment. Hope this helps!

I dropped the third color because I wanted to solidify my manabase. There were just too many times where i'd have a Blood Crypt and/or Bloodstained Mire in my opening hand with nothing but cantrips and counterspells; Steam Vents and Scalding Tarn with nothing but Thoughtseize , Death's Shadow , etc. Dropping just simplified the strategy for me.
Also, you are 100% correct on Creeping Tar Pit ; i don't plan to make room for it in the Mainboard. It seemed like a good idea at first but, as you said, the ETB tapped is just too slow for this deck. Thanks for the input and the +1.

you don't have a full play set of anything, or good dual lands. cut 2 cards so the deck is down to 60, and then pick the best spells and run full play sets. Scalding Tarn , Steam Vents , and Sulfur Falls will greatly improve the manabase. Ionize is also exactly what it looks like you're trying to do.
