Rainbow lands can be quite nifty in 3+ colours.

  • City of Brass and Mana Confluence hurt a bit, but they provide everything you need.

  • Reflecting Pool is a solid option. Exotic Orchard is a bit more risky, depending on how many players you are up against, and what decks they are running. I use it in five colour, but am guessing it is servicable in three.

  • Tarnished Citadel provides emergency colour fixing at a fairly annoying life cost, but you can still tap it for colourless in non-emergency situations.

  • Forbidden Orchard is okay, but providing your enemy a chump blocker is less than ideal.

  • Command Tower, of course.

Green gives you a number of sorceries that allow fetching lands. You also get access to ramp enchantments like Dawn's Reflection, Utopia Sprawl, Overgrowth, and Fertile Ground.

Tarnished Citadel for some emergency colour fixing.

Aren't you aware of the self-pain strategy or did you decide to take another path for the deck?

Ancient Tomb, City of Brass, Nomad Stadium, Grand Coliseum and Tarnished Citadel take only some lands slot and are staples in Darien builds.

Also, Skullclamp with the tokens is very strong.

darklord1135 thanks for your time and comments, really appreciated.

Unfortunately, Mana Drain isn't legal in mtgo format's. Check lands are solid fixers so i don't think i'll get rid of them. Will definetly look after Tarnished Citadel through and replace this inconsistent (yep) Nimbus Maze. I'm also looking for a flusterstorm so I will include it in my list as soon as I get it.

Maybe cut Checklands and Exotic Orchard? One can enter tapped which is a no-go for competitive edh and the other is inconsistent for mana. Playing a Tarnished Citadel would be great. Also a little to many lands for competitive edh. Flusterstorm/Duals is a must for competitive. Also a Mana Drain is also a need-to-play as far as competitive edh goes. Also Nimbus Maze seems bad and inconsistent.

Alas, my posts did not want to refresh. Tarnished Citadel for some emergency mana-fixing.
