Tainted Field Discussion

Hey, you asked for my help. This is a well built budget Commander deck. Only $137 for a complete playable Commander deck is nice, good job.
Chromatic Lantern is down more than 60% in price (less than $5 now) since it's been revealed to be reprinted in Guilds of Ravnica. Lantern is now a budget Commander card, as it should be :) The prices haven't updated yet for this site, but if you add (GRN) to the end of Lantern in the text editor it will show up as the GRN version with the updated low price.
Your decklist is already really well done/streamlined, it's going to be difficult to make cuts without adding some additional price... Here's a list of cards to consider adding/cutting:
Exsanguinate: does X damage to each player and you gain just as much life. This single spell can kill everyone at the table. It could replace Death Grasp because Grasp only does X damage to one player.
Exotic Orchard: good land for multiplayer Commander.
Tainted Field: can ETB untapped and if you control a Swamp it can be tapped to make black or white mana. If you don't have a Swamp you can still tap it to make colorless mana. It could replace either Orzhov Guildgate or Scoured Barrens?
If these lands upgrades are too much then I think you're better off playing more basic lands then the three Guildgates, Barrens, River and Boneyard. More basic lands at least work better with the Bounce lands (Azorius Chancery, etc.).
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, I saw your forum topic, nice deck description :)
I suggest you focus on upgrading the manabase before you make any other changes to the deck. If you want more efficiency in game play then you need a more efficient manabase. The manabase is really bad, other than a few lands, but when you're at the point in deck building when you're adding Guildgates and lands like Submerged Boneyard then stop, take a step back and ponder/research card choices for lands improvements more than anything else. Try to reduce the amount of lands that ETB tapped because with Zombies you don't want to get bogged down from playing your early game Zombies because of these lands.
- Tainted Isle
- Tainted Field
- Isolated Chapel
- Drowned Catacomb
- Sunken Hollow
- Underground River
- Caves of Koilos
- Darkwater Catacombs
- Concealed Courtyard
The Tainted lands, the Check lands and Sunken have interaction with basic lands (Swamps) making them good additions to the manabase because Swamps should make up the majority of the manabase.
Varina is a four drop who requires in her casting cost the two splash colors of the manabase because of this consider adding some two drop mana rocks to possibly help to cast her in the early game? Adding two Signets (Dimir Signet, Orzhov Signet) and two Talismans (Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress) can help. Later on in the game if you don't need these rocks then you can simply discard them to pay for Varina's ability and then they can be used as fodder to exile to make Zombies.
Good luck with your deck.

K gonna try to build it into a value sac outlet, recursion plan. If you like it look at Shirei, Shinzo’s Caretaker who also can the the same strat.
Mana base changes boring I know
Now onto cards to add
land base like this you have 3 tapped lands so a pretty fast mana base. I would say 1 of the land destruction lands ie Ghost Quarter would be a good addition, while over budget Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is the best. Non budget options Fetid Heath, Godless Shrine,Westvale Abbey Flip, Cabal Coffers.
Cards to ditch
Removal package 5 pieces of spot removal in Utter End, Swords to Plowshares, Mortify, Anguished Unmaking and Unmake can target all toss Vindicate IF you can grab it. 3 board wipes Dusk, Fumigate, Day of Judgment Will post again am sleepy

City of Brass is good mana fixing and has decent synergy with Sun Droplet, much like the other pain lands you have here.
Thanks to all the life gain, Necropotence might be good to add, if not a big challenging to cast on this mana base. As for Draw, I also like Erebos, God of the Dead as a pseudo-hatebear, a way to spend the life you gain, and additional draw.
Circle of Despair is useful against Voltron, Burn, and some go-tall style aggro.
Serra Ascendant is a broken turn 1 play off of a white source.
Tainted Field is decent mana fixing in BW

I'm not trying to be curt, but how do you plan on winning most of the time. I see a lot of disparate wincons without a solid focus. Having one to focus on would enable better choices in some other areas. If you don't plan on winning via combat damage Wrath of God is just plain better than In Garruk's Wake for example.
Your mana base could use some love too. In a 2 color deck before you even consider Vivids or Promenade/Spire I would exhaust all of the on color duals since they have no additional downside besides coming in tapped and some have an upside or a chance to not enter tapped. In this case you would be looking at Concealed Courtyard, Forsaken Sanctuary, Isolated Chapel, Orzhov Guildgate, Scoured Barrens, Shambling Vent, Tainted Field, and Temple of Silence all for under $5 and most for under $1.

High Market has a nonexistent Commander 2017 printing, which should be a Commander Anthology printing.
Tainted Field's Explorers of Ixalan printing is missing.
