Damia, "Sage of Butthurt" would also be an appropriate deck title.
And no, I will not run Dream Halls, Omniscience or Survival. Games are fun when they don't just end from playing those three particular cards.
To do list:Replace Darkslick Shores, and 1x Forest with Dimir Aqueduct, and Golgari Rot Farm.
COME HERE SULTAI CHARM. COME TO PAPA.
Can always use some more rocks for that mana acceleration and casting and recasting that beast of a general you play. I would suggest Sol Ring , Gilded Lotus , Darksteel Ingot , MindStone, and Chromatic Lantern .
essiga9 I do not want to use mana rocks in this deck; I recently took out Darksteel Ingot because...lands are just better 99.999% of the time. Sure, I could load up on mana rocks and get my general out turn 3 or 4...but then what? I draw more mana rocks?
Solid acceleration through lands is a much better method of playing this style of deck.
If you're running the original duals, then Skyshroud Claim is better than Explosive Vegetation by virtue of being able to pull them in untapped (you'd still have to take the damage for shocklands to come in untapped, but they'd be a better choice if you have no other use for two lands that turn).
Run both. I mean skyshroud and explosive. Deck seems fun but the lands base does seem a little random. Looks like you just threw all your favorite lands in a deck. Dessert Temple, Darkslick shores, Gim-leaf palace, ect. Some of the lands just have stipulations that hold you back. You don't want to slow down when people second turn Bribery and take your Kozilek or Ulamog.
re: Coucho_Marx and EDHLOVE Ya, I need a copy of Skyshroud Claim. I know. As for Deserted Temple - its really good untapping utility lands like High Market, Miren, Backwoods (and when I get one, Diamond Valley.) Luckily, there are no turn 2 (or 3 or even 4) Bribery in my meta. No one really runs it.
No Deadeye Navigator ? You have a ton of ETB dudes that would get pretty easily abused by him. Also, I know you replaced it but I can't see why you took Cyclonic Rift out of the deck. That card is just insane man.
re: corythackston Deadeye Navigator is on the list of cards I refuse to play; along with Voriinclex, Elesh Norn, Omniscience, and a few others. Its just not a fun card - this deck is already oppressive enough, but I prefer to do things the hard way, rather then lock the game down with Deadeye+walking counterspell/removal. As for Cylconic Rift - it just wasn't really pulling its weight as much as other cards did. Sure its a great game closer, but it often just sat in my hand as I had better options for control.
Your land count seems a bit high for a deck that doesn't abuse landfall. You've already got Oracle of Mul Daya and Azusa, Lost but Seeking , I would recomemnd also adding Exploration (becuase hey, turn one acceleration is awesome) and also Green Sun's Zenith to dig up said ramp creature/anything green you want. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed could bre really good for your deck too. the +1/+1 and undying make your stuff really hard to kill, and you can get extra value from your ETB creatures with Miren, the Moaning Well / High Market / Phyrexian Tower .
I don't think that Draining Whelk or Mystic Snake suit your deck very well. you only have 2 counterspells total, so you can't rely on them to get you out of a jam, and with the casting cost of both of them it seems counter-productive to your strategy. You want to be playing threats, not sitting there with your mana open.
