I'd run Adaptive Automaton and Crystal Shard . Blasphemous Act as well. Unclaimed Territory is a must and I like Tarnished Citadel . Living Death could be kida killer if you let the king go to the graveyard, and given his cost it isnt a bad idea. I think Firemind Vessel is actually really good here. Cauldron of Souls could also be interesting. I don't love Nim Deathmantle never have. I really don't like Cover of Darkness .

Sorry for taking so long to get back with you about this, but here it is...

I really do like Oko over Ashiok, Dream Render , but I'd like to try and see if there is a way to add Oko and keep Ashiok. Searching up cards is so powerful in cEDH for some decks I want to have and answer to them. Considered dropping down to 29 lands to keep Ashiok in dropping Tarnished Citadel . I'm no expert in deck building so take it for what that is worth.

Oko really shuts down some gaming winning strats leaving opponents will little ways to answer outside of combat damage. Had 1 table that I turned the Frog (gitrog) into and elk, Anji into an elk and most of CVT's rocks into elks. With little to no way to sack or get rid of their new elks you kinda lock them out of the game.

A lot of them didn't know what to do from this point and went on the combat plan, but tbh with 40 life 3/3's take a long time to kill ya.

I'm ok with bolt to face for mana, but which is more optimal Gemstone Caverns or Tarnished Citadel ?

Duals Volcanic Island , Plateau , Tundra > fetches Scalding Tarn , Arid Mesa , Flooded Strand > shocks Steam Vents , Sacred Foundry , Hallowed Fountain > rainbows Mana Confluence , City of Brass , Tarnished Citadel

Good mana bases are expensive; basically, if something is out of budget look at the next thing. :) hope this helps some.

It's already pretty good man! Obvious upgrades would be the land base. Fetches like Polluted Delta , Scalding Tarn , and Bloodstained Mire ; shocks Watery Grave , Steam Vents , and Blood Crypt . Lastly, the rainbows Mana Confluence , City of Brass and Tarnished Citadel . Now I know lands are boring and expensive but they'll up the consistancy of the deck by a lot especially in a 3 color deck. Only if it's within your budget though :)

Says this under the help section but it already looks pretty fleshed out. The rainbow lands like City of Brass , Mana Confluence and Tarnished Citadel definitely help with the 4c mana base and are definitely worth the pain. Also, when it becomes legal Arcane Signet is an excellent rock; I'm sure its' price point will drop after people start opening the decks.

@Dark_Danda Hello 50-75% player.... Seems you are either very new to Cedh or Stax in general and don't understand this deck at all... All your suggestions were aimed at 50 - 75% decks and would work in very slow meta but are not recommended for 100% pods... anyway there is also a sideboard part that has all the cards you suggested in the description so it's pointless to post it for slower meta...

But suggesting Prime Speaker Vannifar being better than pod? this is either bait, troll, or hate hence the removal of the post.. or even Adarkar Wastes for a land that is far better like Tarnished Citadel xD... I spam play this deck in meta that abuses these primary decks to their fullest ( https://cedh-decklist-database.xyz/primary.html )

I'd stick to this build if you face a lot of 100% decks... you could add meta cards or more removal like swords and path or "spell pierce like 1 mana counters" and the fact you don't play this deck to know the intricate details and many of the cards busted uses is enough to not take the post serious as well...

Yours sincerely Kiyomei.
