Need to trim away some non-basics to make room for basic lands

Commander Deck Help forum

So I guess this comes across a tad weird. I feel like the amount of non-basics in this deck Anaplasmosis don't help at all. I almost feel like the deck would function better if I trimmed some of them away and replaced them with some basics. Let me know what you think...

Cut Golgari Rot Farm, Sandsteppe Citadel, Nomad Outpost and Jungle Shrine. I don't think the colour fixing is worth their entering tapped.

cdkime cut thanks for the suggestion. I agree I feel like there are quite a few more of these tapped lands I could cut.

I would run at least some of the fetchlands in your colors to grab your basics and shock lands, unless you can’t afford them. The any-color lands like Tarnished Citadel and Mana Confluence also help the problem of color fixing. They are not basics, but might work better for you.

I built a budget Zombie edh deck for my gf and was amazed at how smoothly it runs with only four non-basics: Underground Sea, Polluted Delta, Bazaar of Baghdad and Crypt of Agadeem.

Sometimes basic is best!

Oh, I forgot to mention what I would cut. For adding the fetches, I would cut Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse and some basics and/or check lands. If you want to run the multicolor lands, cut those as well.
