Deserted Temple Discussion

I'd run Deserted Temple to go with the plethora of cards it goes with like Cabal Coffers , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , and some of the reserves list lands too like Serra's Sanctum and Gaea's Cradle

Never mind. That doesnt work like that.

Deserted Temple, Earthcraft (probably better than Cradle), Wirewood Lodge, Weathered Wayfarer. Also Cradle/Earthcraft work WAY better with early tokens. Gather the Townsfolk, Battle Screech, etc will keep you ahead on ramp instead of only at the end, which is crucial. Seem weak, but like the signets, super important early drops

Thespian's Stage - Copy coffers or opposing utility land

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - Upgrade

Dark Deal - Synergy

Ancient Tomb - Ramp

People are going to try and remove your commander, as your deck is centered around him. As such, protecting him is key.

Imp's Mischief - Counter counterspells, redirect targetted removal/draw/extra turns, etc.... super utility

Deserted Temple - Untap coffers

Thespian's Stage - Copy coffers or other utility lands

Since you are playing pox with lots of creature removal, you might want to consider Infernal Darkness or Contamination + Bitterblossom .

Feed the Swarm - Good removal

Blast Zone - Not needed but nice to have, another way to deal with artifacts/enchantments

Given you're saccing your own lands too, have you considered adding fetches and Crucible of Worlds ? It could really offset Lake of the Dead

I got some ideas for cuts should you need. I HATE this commander so much, deck looks pretty good +1

I know I'm a year late to this party, but infinite black mana is totally achievable in Golgari and it's the reason I want to build Ishkana as a non competitive commander.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers + Deserted Temple + Rings of Brighthearth is infinite black. You can fetch it pretty easily with Scapeshift searching up the three lands mentioned above as well as Vault of Whispers, Tree of Tales, Darksteel Citadel and Inventors' Fair to get ahold of Rings.

It takes a full turn from casting Scapeshift which is why I say I want to build it as a 75% non-cEDH deck, but a Scapeshift combo that wins without Valakut is kinda cool in my opinion.

Thanks for your comment. I am very happy about such comments, as it is difficult to keep an eye on every possible combination with over a thousand commanders, especially with such a commander like Ishkanah, which you don't meet in your LGS every day. Thanks to your comment, I can see more of the potential of Ishkanah. I you want to tune up your deck, I have some recommendations for that:

I would exchange:

I would play as many cool utility lands with a sacrifice effect and as many fetch lands as possible because they're needed for Delirium and have also great potential with the MVP in every graveyard deck Life from the Loam:

Carddraw or Cardadvantage:

Other good finishers/ combo pieces:

Well, I'm sure that you already know what other options there are to tune up the deck. If you want to win consitenly I would add more ways to produce infinte mana like Nim Deathmantle + Priest of Gix + Ashnod's Altar or Magus of the Coffers + Staff of Domination OR another unigue and complicated way to filter infinite colorless mana with Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth is together with Mirage Mirror and a Swamp...

To make the whole thing more consistent you have play all green and black tutors, play fast mana like the Moxes, Mana Crypt/-Vault, Manadorks (Elvish Mystic/Elves of Deep Shadow/Llanowar Elves etc. and pack some premium removal in the deck to raise the power level. If you're interested we can brew a fringe competetive list together.

I would seriously consider replacing a couple lands with Drownyard Temple and Flagstones of Trokair. If you want to get really juicy, find something else to cut for Lotus Field, Crop Rotation, and Deserted Temple (maybe Thespian's Stage.) The latter portion not so much, but with Zirda's ability and being able to search Elvish Reclaimer, I think it just makes too much sense.

Also, it's epic :_ )
