I play tri-colour pretty much exclusively, and while getting colour-stuck can be an issue, I can normally get all three out in the first three turns, despite my refusal to pay for fetch-lands. I feel you have enough dual/tri-colour lands to cut a forest or two... Especially with the playset of fetch lands in there.

I recommend you at least experiment.

Kin-Tree Invocation? You could probably cut out a couple of lands...

If he dies, you can opt to send him to the graveyard rather than back to the CZ, then when you embalm him, you return him to the CZ instead of exiling him, which means he can be put onto the battlefield more often without increasing his Commander casting cost. You then pair him with stompy tokens or tron decks to abuse the unblockable mechanic.

I've been reading up on Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun, and there seems to be a lot of interest from the EDH community... I don't play Commander much, but I didn't realise that putting your Commander in the command zone was optional! So we'll see how he plays out, but I'm getting the feeling he won't last.

Caeruleus it was the reason I made the deck!

I'm running Noosegraf Mob in my mummy-themed deck Barrack Embalmer, but it might be a bit high up the curve for this deck; still, worth considering.

Yeah, e.g. Irrigated Farmland is a Plains and an Island, so it works for both Choked Estuary and Port Town to bring them in untapped. They'll be good in Modern format for that reason too, because they can be fetched with e.g. Flooded Strand, so probably not a bad investment.

Re. Oketra, no, I only meant that the second half of Never / Return will give me utility even if she dies, although it works better in targeting opponent's graveyards if they have anything they can get back.

Ah, must be private! In that case, a playset each of Concealed Courtyard, Fetid Pools, Irrigated Farmland, Choked Estuary and Port Town. Again, playsets may be overkill...

If you get it down early it can act as aggro deterrent, blocker, life pressure and removal bait as well, making it more likely to get to your combo at 6 mana. Hope it helps!

Check out my aquireboard. Playsets of those plus 1 of each basic will bring you to 23 lands, although a playset of Concealed Courtyard may be too much. Either of the AKH Cycling lands can be used to bring the SOI lands in untapped, and late game can be cycled if you already have a large and diverse manabase.

Let me know how it plays! My current concern is lack of removal, which in an Esper deck seems unforgivable. Also card draw, hence Open Into Wonder in the Maybeboard, which would be really effective with a few zombies and an Aven Wind Guide on the board. I could probably go without Anointer Priests if anything, and again, Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun is still giving me uncertainty.

I won't get a chance to playtest until next Thursday, but will update here.

Surprised to not see Anointed Procession... Otherwise this is my kinda deck! If you can bring yourself to splash blue, Amonkhet will also give you Aven Wind Guide, and Invocation of Saint Traft will give you a temp angel (or more than one if you have a token doubler). Flying Elephants that spawn angels seem too good to pass up!

I thought about that and Panharmonicon, but as it's not essential to the combo (three Scions are enough), they may just take up space on a 4 CMC card. What about Rot Shambler as an alternate win-con?
