Hey there mate! From what I see, you have all three shock lands (Pay 2 on ETB), all the filter lands (Pay X/Y get combination) and the check lands (ETB tapped unless X/Y). These are all great lands, but I think almost everything else can get a nice sweet upgrade. Note some of my suggestions may not be in your budget

I don't see the use in adding white as an extra color for a creature here.

What I would do is remove Leonin Squire , Arid Mesa , Godless Shrine , Plains , and Sacred Foundry . Substitute the creature with one of these: - Trading Post - Skeleton Shard - Fortuitous Find - Myr Retriever , OR - Scrap Trawler

The Arid Mesa , Godless Shrine , Plains , and Sacred Foundry can be traded out for mountains and swamps, as well as: - Cinder Barrens - Canyon Slough (this has Cycling, so would be good for drawing) - Akoum Refuge - Blackcleave Cliffs - Bloodfell Caves - Dragonskull Summit , AND/OR - Buried Ruin , which would give you additional room to return artifacts

Maybe a few more dual lands like Akoum Refuge , Bloodfell Caves , Dragonskull Summit or Foreboding Ruins ? Besides that, this looks like a mean but fun deck (in a good way). Good job!

Well, the tri-lands EtBT but I can see their versatility and benefit in the following turns, so I can see why you may want to keep them. The cycle from the Ravnica sets if played during the 2nd main phase can ramp in the next turns, so they also have a purpose. I can also see the point of having something like Slippery Karst that you can cycle for drawing.

The lands I would replace are those that do not provide any (significant) trade-off for letting you one turn behind in terms of ramp (e.g. Highland Lake , Stone Quarry , Akoum Refuge , etc.). The first alternatives that come into my mind are shock-lands (e.g. Hallowed Fountain , Steam Vents , etc.) and/or pain-lands (e.g. Adarkar Wastes , Underground River , etc.).

I would also take out Rupture Spire for something like City of Brass or, considering you have a lot of multicoloured creatures in the deck, Guildmages' Forum .

The main drawback of course is that such manabase is more expensive in terms of real-life money.

If you're going to build a deck as cheap as $30, you're probably going to have to lean on a theme to make it functional. That can be supplemented with the fact that even mediocre demons and devils are good at not being coin-flipped away, but stuff like Dance with Devils wasn't even playable in Limited.

I see some reanimator stuff going on, so if you go that route, Torrent of Souls , Zombify , and Profane Command are all solid budget options. You'll want some graveyard stocking power to go with it. Mindwrack Demon , Extractor Demon , Archfiend of Ifnir , pull double duty. Cathartic Reunion , Dark Deal , Faithless Looting , Hazoret's Monument , Khorvath's Fury , Collective Defiance , Shattered Perception , and Tormenting Voice all fit the bill.

Also, Flayer of the Hatebound could power a nice subtheme with your reanimation, and you can stock up on cheap Undying creatures like Demonlord of Ashmouth , Hound of Griselbrand , and Pyreheart Wolf to lower your budget and synergize with Rakdos. Charmbreaker Devils could also be a house once you stock the yard.

Also, maybe improve general card quality by splurging on Bloodgift Demon and Demon of Wailing Agonies ? Demon's Horn , Carnage Altar , Rakdos Riteknife , Devils' Playground , Dance with Devils , Consume the Meek , and Rite of Belzenlok , Archdemon of Greed , Temple of the False God , Tomb of Urami , and Kindly Stranger  Flip are all pretty bad. Akoum Refuge and Bloodfell Caves seem like easy adds, as well.

I don’t think Akoum Refuge is the right card. Kazandu Refuge is probably what you want

I actually made a deck pretty similar to this one. Her it is if you want to check it out: Mogis the hate god

what I found out through play testing is that creatures more or less suck for group slug strategies. There are plenty of really good creatures that fit this deck such as Zo-Zu the Punisher however I've found that if you relly too much on your creatures for incremental damage they are too susceptible to removal and board wipes.

In your case I believe you can safely get rid of any creature that produces mana. In most edh deck you only need about 10ish mana rocks and right now you have 11 as regular artifacts so I think your ramp will be fine.

Besides ramping creatures I believe that cutting these cards would also be advantageous:

With all those cards cut I'd then start putting in more group slug type enchantments. The reason I like these enchantments more is because unlike creatures, most board wipes dont hit them and most people dont have a ton of enchantment removal. There are tons of these group slug type cards so I'm not going to say which ones would be best for your deck because most of them would work. But I like these ones:

I would also just reconsider these cards, I haven't personally played them so I can't be certain of how strong they are, but they dont seem to quite fit the deck.

  • Cruel Reality It seems tempting but it only targets one opponent and is super expensive. I don't believe its worth its cost
  • Browbeat I would personally rather have guaranteed card draw, try Ancient Craving instead
  • Mana Geyser lots of mana, but what are you spending it on? if you had more X costing spells then it may be worth it but for now think of how bad of a top deck this would be with no cards in hand.

And of course I would strongly recommend running some dual lands to help smooth out your mana consistency. Here are some of the really budget ones:

You have a strong core here once again but I just feel that some of your card slots could be better spent. Hope all this helps
