Akoum Refuge

Land

Akoum Refuge enters the battlefield tapped.

When Akoum Refuge enters the battlefield, you gain 1 life.

I'd really advocate against the life lands Akoum Refuge, etc. They can put you "on the throne"! Use guildgates instead. XD

The one glaring omission I see is Tireless Provisioner. That said, I do think there are a couple areas this deck could improve within budget: manabase and long game.

I think a couple of your artifacts are slow or lower-impact; Horned Helm in particular seems like it is not doing enough. I would consider cutting this card and potentially Welcome to Sweettooth or Giant's Skewer for card that recur your resources, something like Palace Siege or Oversold Cemetery or The War in Heaven.

For manabase, in particular I am looking at the fact that you have 1) a ton of lands that enter the battlefield tapped all the time, and 2) only 4 other Forests for your Gingerbread Cabin. I would suggest cutting Cinder Barrens, Foul Orchard, Jund Panorama, Akoum Refuge, Gruul Guildgate, and Golgari Guildgate for Many Partings, Cinder Glade, Sheltered Thicket, Woodland Chasm, Smoldering Marsh, and Rockfall Vale. A lot of these dual lands are cheaper right now due to the Doctor Who commander deck release, so you can pick most of them up for <$1 each.

Best of luck to you!

Update!

Out: 1. Akoum Refuge 2. Bloodfell Caves 3. Boros Garrison 4. Kabira Crossroads 5. Orzhov Basilica 6. Rakdos Carnarium 7. Scoured Barrens 8. Wind-Scarred Crag 9. Opal Palace 10. Path of Ancestry 11. Well of Lost Dreams 12. Merciless Eviction 13. Fell the Mighty 14. Blood Baron of Vizkopa

In: 1. Plains x4 2. Mountain x4 3. Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire 4. Takenuma, Abandoned Mire 5. Farewell 6. Toxic Deluge 7. Welcoming Vampire 8. Flawless Maneuver

The land base needed to be refined a bit, so I got rid of anything that comes in tapped and replaced them with basic lands. I also added two legendary lands from Kamigawa, Neon Dynasty.

The board wipes, although decent, were replaced with two that have more flexibility in them - Farewell and Toxic Deluge.

Flawless Maneuver is something I'd like to play test in this deck, so it replaced Well of Lost Dreams since we don't really have a heavy lifegain strategy in this deck (and Necropotence is already in the deck).

Lastly, Blood Baron Vizkopa was replaced with Welcoming Vampire to benefit more off our token strategy with Eminence.

Updates!

Out: Akoum Refuge - Bloodfell Caves - Rakdos Carnarium - Lavaclaw Reaches - Torbran, Thane of Red Fell

In: Canyon Slough - Blightstep Pathway  Flip - 2x Swamp - Rakdos, Lord of Riots

In efforts to improve the consistency of the mana base, I am starting to remove the lands that come in tapped no matter what and replacing them with either a basic or a cycling land for card draw. Also, Torbran didn't seem worth the effort when I drew him - one reason being his 3x casting cost was often troublesome and +2 damage didn't seem worth it compared to Rakdos, who will hopefully save me mana in the long run - we shall see!

The mana base is a bit slow all the tap lands. You will consistently find yourself behind a turn due to the lands coming into play tapped. it would be best to replace the guildgates and cards like Akoum Refuge with lands like:

Sacred Foundry, Godless Shrine, Blood Crypt, Graven Cairns, Fetid Heath, Rugged Prairie, and Savai Triome. some fetches can help with consistency too: Marsh Flats, Arid Mesa, Bloodstained Mire
