If you cut the treasure vaults and a Vault of Whispers or two for more blue and white lands that would remove the need for the lantern. With the locus lands coming in this deck looks some what similar to a tron list and those use very few basic lands and leverage the fact that Chromatic Star gives them colored mana. The tron lands Urza's Tower and its friends and better then 8 post. But you will need to devote 12 slots to those lands then and would probably need to cut a color. Just my 2 cents no need to take it as gospel

That deck wants to be fast so I wouldn't put the bridge in. But the post lands can hurt you by not letting you get your colors. If you want to use them I'd swap the Chromatic Lantern for Chromatic Star or Chromatic Sphere but over all you can probably do better than lantern

List looks good, how has it performed?

Do you feel the Chromatic Stars are a must?

How often do you cast Goblin Dark-Dwellers?

Removing Mox Tantalite completely makes you entirely dependent on Springleaf Drum for colored mana, so I don't know if going up on Moonsnare Prototype is a good idea in that situation since they will be uncastable without a Drum.

I do think you need to up your counts of Memnite and Ornithopter to get more consistent use out of the Drums, and maybe consider Paradise Mantle as another option (it's slightly worse than Drum since it doesn't get around summoning sickness, but it's something). You might also want to think about Chromatic Star, even though it's just a one-time use. How much do you really need Scale of Chiss-Goria/Tooth of Chiss-Goria?

A nonzero number of Mox Tantalite might still be the right approach, but I feel like they get worse for you as the numbers go down since it's less likely for them to end up in your opening hand.

Necrogen Spellbomb is cute but a really weak card even with saga. I recommend 1 Pithing Needle and 1 Nihil Spellbomb in the main, both are really useful and the spellbomb can be cycled if graveyard hate isn't needed. To be honest, I know you want a lot of artifacts to tap for Herald, but Necrogen Spellbomb and Chromatic Star are probably getting sacrificed anyways so I don't think they are worth including. Grief is also kind of a bad card if you aren't building around it with flicker effects or like in BR scam decks so I'd cut both copies. And since Herald is a fat 7 cmc creature I'd definitely go down to 3, and maybe 2 copies. Most 8rack players have tested Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage since it was released and agreed that it isn't that good. 1 copy is sometimes played though.

I would probably replace them with removal like Bloodchief's Thirst, Fatal Push, and maybe 1x Dismember, and you also probably need the 8rack classic Raven's Crime which is absolutely amazing when getting mana flooded.

There is also the nonbo of Ensnaring Bridge preventing your Herald and constructs from attacking, which is why most rack players running saga cut down on mainboard bridge copies, but on the other hand ensnaring bridge is an artifact that taps for herald.

Also neither Animate Dead nor Dance of the Dead are legal in modern. A way to reanimate herald with Persist after discarding it with lili sounds interesting but probably not feasible unless you find a few other ways to discard herald. And at that point you'd be trying to fit too many things into one deck.

Hey. A friend of mine suggested Chromatic Star and Chromatic Sphere for my Doomsday list and they've been great for me so far. Not sure how good they'll perform for you seeing as you're just one color, but the fixing can still be relevant at times.

Loving the deck, though. +1

Some thoughts:

  • Eldrazi Temple is probably better served just being more Forest, because realistically Temple doesn’t particularly help with any of your casting costs, as you really need tron to do much of anything.

  • i think you have waay too many payoff cards, and not enough ways to get Tron online. You really need 7-8 copies total of Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star to help secure an early Tron (and also help colour-fix).

  • even with Tron assembled, some of your cards just seem to have too high a mana cost to ever realistically be cast - particularly Emrakul, the Aeons Torn has no chance of seeing play. I’d recommend focusing most of your threats around being 8-or-less mana, and your highest-costing cards being 10 mana. Anything above 10cmc means you need at least 5 lands in play, which is super slow/clumsy for a deck that wants to be displaying a ton of pressure quickly.
