Thank you for your praise, I am really proud of my primer and its been my main project for so long. My next goal is to figure out how to make text colored so I could start making sections like "sacrifice" or "discard" which will make the lists more process-able.

wombatula I know of a few powerful legacy Golgari decks. The main premise of these decks is the use of turn 1 discard (Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek) disruption like Pithing Needle, Phyrexian Revoker, or Surgical Extraction and green for land ramp (Sylvan Scrying or Crop Rotation). It's important to have a good finisher in this kind of deck, which can easily be a set of Wurmcoil Engines for modern or 4 Vampire Hexmages and 4 Dark Depths with Not of This World support for legacy. Abrupt Decay or Maelstrom Pulse will be important additions based on whether you need hard removal or not, I would highly suggest the former if your meta is competitively fast and has dirty blue players.

Many legacy and modern STAX decks go for a full artifact plan (often called mono brown) which is very strong but a hard investment $ wise. This version is the cheaper path, focusing on ramping up for a win condition with Elvish Spirit Guides, Lotus Petals and land search along the lines of the ramp cards I mentioned above while removing, disabling, and forcing discards. If your win condition is a land Dark Depths being the best example, then cards like Thespian's Stage and Crop Rotation gain immense value as they can become or search up niche items like Wasteland, Bojuka Bog, or even a Sejiri Steppe to give the Marit Lage or a Wurmcoil Engine the evasion it needs to kill.

I hope this was helpful, for more 60 card stax advice I would look at the site MTGtop8 or look up "mono brown stax" for other examples. Finding specific Golgari ones can be difficult so I tried to give you as much advice as I could.

Archangel Avacyn  Flip has a red backside, it doesn't fit your commander's colours...

Also, Trinket Mage with only one target to tutor for is awfully weak. It's a great card but you need some sort of toolbox to make it relevant in any stages of the game. For example Pithing Needle, Engineered Explosives (nice with Academy Ruins and Crop Rotation/Sylvan Scrying to tutor for it, also makes a good pile for Intuition with Crucible of Worlds/Academy Ruins/Engineered Explosives or Regrowth), Aether Spellbomb or some mana rocks such as Mana Vault, Voltaic Key, Lotus Petal, Chrome Mox and a bit more expensive Mana Crypt, Mox Opal, Mox Diamond.

I wouldn't recommend lands like Simic Growth Chamber, because they are very much fun for the first person, who happens to have a Strip Mine, Wasteland or any other land removals in the early game and it sets you back like 3 turns. It happened so often and recently I've not seen anyone play these lands anymore because they are so risky. If you combine them with Amulet of Vigor (also a target for Trinket Mage) they are good, but alone they suck.

I agree with the last poster. This is basically artifact-based pillowfort with substandard mana acceleration. It can't really do anything threatening without 8+ mana, and it can't interact with the stack--not good on a blue-based format.

Things I see this deck having serious problems with: efficient discard effects, burn decks, counterspells, storm combo, small creatures, artifact removal, Wasteland (something you yourself might consider running)... So really, basically, most things in Legacy.

That all makes sense to me but its sad that I can't find anywhere to play legacy. I put in my time and money to build a deck that I love to play. It just sits on my desk in a box. I bought a eternal masters pack for $10 and pulled a Mother of Runes. As for as Wasteland I have 4 copies from weatherlight.

I agree with the comment or on Reveillark. I almost wish it were Sun Titan but then I think you just have the wrong deck at that point. It sort of counterintuitive to the idea of filling the graveyard. About half your creatures you can't even get back. The more I think on it, the more I like Necrotic Sliver. I like the idea of using Seance as a grindy control engine and blowing up any permanent every turn is bananas. That said, Fulminator Mage has a part in that. Ever played Wasteland with Crucible of Worlds in Legacy? OP. Seance Fulminator Mage is close.

Guinessthemenace- Like epicfreddi said, any cards on the reserve list will likely hold their higher prices as long as Magic remains a popular game. The only way I see reserve list cards dropping in price is if Magic suddenly loses value as a whole due to people quitting, or the format loses absolutely all support from stores everywhere. On the other hand, non-reserve list cards can drop in price due to being reprinted. For example, Wasteland is at an all time low due to Eternal Masters so I'd pick those up right now before the prices rebound. In fact, if there are any playables at all that you want out of the eternal masters set I'd pick them up soon since I doubt the prices are going to go any lower.

Seeing as budget is a non issue in this deck, I'd recommend The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale for more hate.

Crucible of Worlds + Wasteland is another staple stax combo.

Gate to Phyrexia would help with removing artifacts. You could totally play stuff like Bitterblossom (as fodder for the gate and for blocking), Smokestack, and Crucible of Worlds over other, less powerful controlling stuff/removal. Also Pox, Smallpox are very useful mono B disruption spells.

There's nothing worse than recurring Strip Mine and/or Wasteland with crucible and you mentioned in the description that your deck can't deal well with land destruction...that would be a solution.
