It really depends on what you're playing. Pods vs 1v1s and such. If you're planning to play in pods of four or so, you might want to try to add more of the stax cards Static Orb and Winter Orb would be a good start. I feel like cards like Stoic Angel help me when I play in pods.

If you're playing enchantment heavy, you may want to consider Dissipation Field, Ghostly Prison, and/or Sphere of Safety just for survivability.

I don't know if you're running Thawing Glaciers, but if you're not, you can try to run less basic lands, if that's what you want. It's really only good if you've got quite a few basics.

With Triumph of the Hordes's success I'm going to see what I can do to try to add a bit more infect into the deck, as an alternate win con for me. There's not really any main win con other than Commander damage otherwise for my deck, so it'll help make my deck a bit faster if I'm lucky.

Anyways I'll try to give it some more thought for some suggestions.

ZekeR, SirLag, hoardofnotions thanks for the comments you guys!!!!

Solemn Simulacrum will be replacing the cartographer next time I buy cards!

Risky Move seems too... perilous

hoardofnotions special thanks to you good sir!

I like those mana rocks! I'll probably pick some up to replace Fire Diamond etc.

Phyrexian Processor took the spot of Aetherflux Reservoir. I like to gain my life back.

Bloodshot Cyclops is in my sideboard, haven't really felt the need for him yet.

Gift of Immortality was nice, but cut for more aggressive stuff. Could find it's way back though.

Marshal's Anthem was cut for more card draw. Could also find it's way back it.

Actually, I was thinking that I'd cut the colossus for the Dragon! Read my mind!

Thawing Glaciers is slightly over my $5 budget, but it's on the radar for when I eventually upgrade this deck.

I thought spinerock world be great too, but I was wrong. I mostly exiled lands/mana ramp, and most of the creatures I'd want to cast would have to come after combat, thus making most of my creatures useless(say, Spark Trooper is the only good target, doesn't work). Anyway, I think I just don't have enough good targets for it, and got seriously screwed three times in a row.

Thanks again for the comment guys!

Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Star Compass could replace 3 mana rocks

If you liked kor cartographer you'll love Solemn Simulacrum

Aetherflux Reservoir can't find a home in here???

having Bloodshot Cyclops as redundancy seems good

Gift of Immortality wasn't good?

Marshal's Anthem could be good

Everflowing Chalice is another good mana rock

I really like the Knollspine Dragon in your maybeboard. maybe over crumbling colossus?

Thawing Glaciers is great for mana hungry commander decks.

What was wrong with Spinerock Knoll? seems great for you deck

maybe cut Loxodon Warhammer?

Adding Vault of the Archangel seems like a really strong move

How has Masterwork of Ingenuity worked for you?

you might cut Temple of the False God for Thawing Glaciers. Try and get those plains for Emeria, The Sky Ruin and work your way up to Avacyn, Angel of Hope

Scroll Rack is a combo with land tax, you get a buch of lands swap them for good cards then shuffle them away next turn with the tax. you also have lots of shuffle effects to help it.

how good is Pyroblast?

maybe Lapse of Certainty for your Sunforger package

It might be crazy to say, but maybe you could cut the Chromatic Lantern for a signet. The signets are soo good because they allow a turn 3 kaalia, maybe turn two with a sol ring

Aquitect's Will and Quicksilver Fountain are island makers. Maybe cut Tidal Warrior for one?

Cabal Coffers is a combo with urborg

Muder could be Hero's Downfall

Colossal whale is really expensive, maybe cut for a mana rock? Thawing Glaciers is good for a slowish deck, hit your land drops forever!

This is why commander is cool, you have Mana Drain and Prowler's Helm in the same deck and it makes sense to do so!

Coldsteel Heart is another quick rock that will help, especially being a mono color deck.

Caged Sun is a favorite of mine that will double all your mana and boost your creatures.

Also, there is the Stone-Seeder Hierophant and Thawing Glaciers combo which will repeatedly allow you to dump as many forests on the battlefield as you have untapped.
