As long as Trinisphere is untapped, each spell that would cost less than three mana to play costs three mana to play. (Additional mana in the cost may be paid with any color of mana or colorless mana. For example, a spell that would cost to play costs to play instead.)

After going through my EDH collection, I've realized that I have neither G/W nor U/W commanders, so I've decided to remedy the problem by building Bant Control. I see two main options for my commander (Derevi and Rubinia, and I'd like others' opinions. A few things to keep in mind:
- This is primarily a casual deck; I'm looking to have fun with my friends, not win tournaments. I have other decks for that.
- At least to start, my maximum budget is around $100
- I don't want to play a Stax or Prison build that completely prevents my opponents from playing Magic. Countermagic is totally fine, but not Winter Orb or Trinisphere effects.
Other than that, any advice is much appreciated! Thanks!

Is this really your first edh build? Lol you shoulda seen mine! Freaking Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas that had no ramp other than sol ring and boros Clue stone... embarrassing honsestly. Good job on your first build
Since you're already ramping with your commander, cards like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben can be pretty obnoxious for those pesky blue players too, and won't much bother you. This includes Lodestone Golem tic an extent, Sphere of Resistance, and Trinisphere. Just a thought for your soft lock strategy.
As far as running out of gas, it doesn't much look like you should be with your list, you've got a lot of card draw and ramp, so you should be able to keep crapping out cards all you want. Though you can make serious use of Sylvan Library and Abundance in this deck, as well as the new enchantment from ixalan. I don't recall it's name but it basically gives you a card whenever an opponent removes something from your board.
Hope this helps a bit?

Joraga Treespeaker isn't the greatest. Same with Thorn of Amethyst as a one of. If you do want to go with a Tax suite, then I suggest Sphere of Resistance, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, and Trinisphere. Otherwise, I would take it out. Also, maybe Gaddock Teeg?

Void Winnower is most definitely going into my tokens build of this deck.

For a first draft this is a really nice deck. There are cards to obviously take out for others. The meta that I am in, involves a very heavy stream of stax cards. Trinisphere Static Orb Nether Void are all crucial pieces to make the stack work to you. The deck is designed specifically to decimate combo hunters. Break the combo player and make them defeat you on your terms.
Thats what I can say. Playing this deck enough, I've learned quite a bit about how it goes and what you need to make it successful. Great start though!

One great stax piece that would really hurt opponents but parity would be broken for you is Trinisphere.
Hedron Crawler, Manakin, Millikin, Skittering Invasion, Blinkmoth Urn, Lotus Bloom, Mox Diamond, Lotus Vale, Sword of the Animist and Urza's Incubator can be used for fast ramp into emr options. Urza Tron could also be run here you do have some tutor for it.
all may be worth looking into :)
Very nice list man Emrakul needs more EDH love

After reading Trinisphere again, it makes sense that it doesn't combo with cards like Sanctum Prelate or Chalice of the Void effects. It doesn't change the CMC, rather the mana cost and cost alone. Duly noted!
You have definitely given me some good feedback and inspiration to push this deck into a dedicated Stax deck, Wurmlover, so thank you for that and all of your suggestions/advice!
As for your questions:
A: I think Land Tax is a possible keeper, but at the same time I don't know if it is truly needed. This deck runs a looooot of artifact ramp (which you obviously know) so odds are better than even that you don't have to rely on your lands for mana as much as your artifacts. I'd say that it could either stay or go, but if you have to open a slot, it could go.* (See footnote)
A: That combo is not a bad one, but I don't know if it is as oppressive as the other synergies / packages in your deck. Mana Web on its on is alright, increasingly so with your Winter Orb/Static Orb effects, but it doesn't completely shut down your opponents. The way that Stax decks naturally play out does what you are looking for well enough/better than this in my opinion. (ex. T1 Mana rock(s), T2 Sphere of Resistance/Thorn of Amethyst, T3 Winter Orb/Static Orb, etc.)
