ZendikariWol most of the people i know also don't have literally thousands of dollars to spend on manabases, but we also just like seeing each others brews without our creativity being limited by our wallets. a nice proxy set of every fetchland, every original dual land, and every shock land already fills out 30 land slots in our rainbow builds. we just don't see the need for someone to essentially choose between a used car versus playing a Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck when there aren't even prizes available lol

ZendikariWol: yeah i generally stick to rainbow decks when playing commander. more colors = more options, and i also never have to worry about mana issues since my group allows proxies.

seriously dude, very few decks ever want more than 24 lands. the only competitive deck i know of to run even close to 28 is amulet titan, and thats because they are very much a "lands matter" deck, and need to get a critical mass of lands early so they can start dropping multiple per turn with things like Sakura-Tribe Scout and Azusa, Lost but Seeking. 24 lands is enough to reliably get 4 by turn 4. if you need more mana than that, then what you need is ramp spells, not more lands.

TheOutcastWarlock did you notice the 28 land count? he should remove lands.

TypicalTimmy so your roommate believes people should always just be silent before a game? and how does that correlate to making proxies?

how you gonna mention ramp but not give the game winning example of Trons turn 3 Karn Liberated?

i would never use this. i only use mana rocks that cost 3 or less, and this would only cost 3 if i have all 5 colors among my permanents, at which point i no longer need the mana ramp. everyone else here seems too focused on what it "Can" do, rather than think about the setup required and whether the card is needed at that point.

since this question has already been answered, be sure to select one so this can move to the "answered" portion of the Q and A

also important to note that Path to Exile will not trigger Blade of the Bloodchief or Cordial Vampire. so path is best left in the sideboard while the mainboard uses removal that actually causes the creature to "die". bring in path against things like Wurmcoil Engine and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

triproberts12: i know how to read the card, and i know what lords are available. but ask yourself which one "really" has the bigger impact when it hits the board and its certainly not Gallia. and who said we had to limit ourselves to 2 mana lords? Sliver Legion is gonna be way better in slivers than gallia in satyrs. lets also consider each lords respective tribes. satyrs are pretty poop. i'll take Lord of Atlantis islandwalk over haste anyday when i know i have Aquitect's Will, and thats from someone who loves haste. haste doesn't mean much on a bunch of weak satyrs.

Aether Vial isn't worth using without the full 4. it's only good if you can drop it turn 1 so you need to max your chances of getting it if you're gonna use it at all
