Frimbleglim, is Temple of Deceit really worth it? lands that come in tapped really kinda suck in modern.

Hey man, I was wondering if we could maybe workout a big trade for your 3x Chalice of the Void. I have from your list:

4x Monastery Mentor

1x Ajani Steadfast

4x Soulfire Grand Master

1x Duplicant

1x Vedalken Orrery

4x Temple of Deceit

1x Hidden Dragonslayer foil

1x Hanna, Ship's Navigator

1x mardu strike leader foil

And I have the opportunity to trade for either a Phyrexian Tower or Academy Rector. Then I just have cards we can use to fill in with value? Let me know thanks!

Sorry I came off as a pretentious asshole in my first comment. It looks much better although I do have some cheap suggestions.

Lands; Replace the lands that gain you life and the guildgate with the templesTemple of Deceit. People underestimate how useful scry is, especially in longer games. Add a Command Tower because we are playing commander. Along with this I would add the pain lands Adarkar Wastes. The fact that they come in untapped and you only have to pay life for colored mana makes them very useful and they hardly ever make much of an impact in your life total.

Also what do you use infinite mana for other than really expensive things like Planar Bridge? It seems unnecessary. I would bail on Pili-Pala, Grand Architect combo along with Planar Bridge and replace them with the Sensei's Divining Top, Future Sight, Etherium Sculptor/Foundry Inspector. the top just got banned in legacy and the price is lower than it has been in a long time and each of those cards are extremely useful. I would also bail on Peregrine Drake and Deadeye Navigator and Magister Sphinx. I know the sphinx is good but unless someone you play with is getting more than 50-60 life a game its not that great for multiplayer commander. If you want something along the same lines try Sphinx of the Steel Wind.

I would also remove Sphere of Safety. Since you only have 7 enchantments your not getting great value from it for 5 mana. Capsize is cool but its alot to buy back I would try Boomerang or Dissipate.

Darksteel Ingot is considered to be a fairly bad card as far as mana rocks go. I would put in Azorius Signet

I like it!

My only concern: Is reliquary tower necessary? It doesn't seem like you'd have to discard down to 7 often unless you get really lucky with Treasure Hunt (although I may be wrong, I don't know the ins-and-outs like you do). Temple of Deceit or Temple of Epiphany perhaps?

It also seems bad playing 8 tapped lands in modern. Do you need the guildgates? If you are going to have tapped lands, you might as well play Temple of Deceit. Or just drop them and play 2 ghost quarter and 2 drowned catacomb. This shouldn't bring the budget for the deck up too much.
