Epicurus That sounds like a fun format! Kind of like a draft version of Spat, which is like a cube where instead of drating everyone draws from the same deck, has unlimited mana, and can only play one spell per turn. I think there are variations of it, but that's always how my play group always played it.

The winner of the game got to sign the card that got them the win, which was fun to see which unexpected cards won games. My favourite was a Desolate Lighthouse that shifted when the last card in the deck was drawn and led to victory for its controller because everyone else 'decked' themselves first. Good times!

That's not really lingo related so apologies for the ramble there! On the lingo front, and speaking of gold cards, did anyone else call a 5-colour deck a rainbow deck?

And some other utility lands to consider:

And dual-faced cards that you don't have to count as lands, but can still be a land in a pinch

I like the amount of lands in the deck, but I would have more lands with mana syncs in them. Castle Vantress , Desolate Lighthouse , Fiery Islet , and The Biblioplex are all some things that could be great in the deck, although I would not add all

For recursive lands: Mystic Sanctuary (Dumb Good), Witch's Cottage, Mortuary Mire all work once, but with flickerable effects it's all fine, and you can sacrifice Buried Ruin, Petrified Field, Sequestered Stash. Hall of Heliod's Generosity/Academy Ruins are insane in the right decks, and Emeria, The Sky Ruin is busted in the late game. Mistveil Plains sort of works as recursion, and is repeatable, but is best with tutors and tutor chains. Even Unholy Grotto works amazingly in zombie decks!

(Nonbudget versions would be like Volrath's Stronghold)

Some other draw engines I didn't mention prior are Sea Gate Wreckage, Throne of the High City, Grim Backwoods, and sort of Desolate Lighthouse.

Some tutors like Tolaria West that MagicMarc mentioned would be Inventors' Fair, and Sanctum of Ugin.

Removal is plentiful on lands, but pretty specific. Blast Zone is a favorite of mine, and is dumb good. Ghost Quarter, Field of Ruin, Dust Bowl, Encroaching Wastes, Memorial to War, and Tectonic Edge all deal with lands. Arena, Barbarian Ring, Blighted Gorge, Cabal Pit, Desert, Keldon Megaliths, Keldon Necropolis, Mouth of Ronom, Rath's Edge, Grasping Dunes, Ifnir Deadlands, and Quicksand are good against creatures, and some walkers.

Hey, nice start and this is obviously a budget deck therefore my suggestions will be $2 or less each, most are less than $1.





Cards to consider cutting:

  • 2x Island
  • 2x Plains
  • 2x Mountain
  • Enigma Drake
  • Rage Thrower
  • Boros Locket
  • Izzet Locket
  • Winged Words
  • Hallowed Spiritkeeper
  • Monastery Siege
  • Not Forgotten
  • Blaze
  • Radical Idea
  • Shock
  • Dramatic Reversal
  • Hissing Iguanar

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Desolate Lighthouse can act as another Geier Reach Sanitarium and could be a good include for the list. Firestorm is also very similar to Nahiri's Wrath and could be good for the deck.

theartision Cool! Alright, well if it's budget AND chaos or budget AND coin-flip we're talking about then.... As much as dislike the chaos archetype I do know some budget cards then to maybe consider, again these are just suggestions so if it's too against the grain of what you're going for feel free to ignore them:


Warp World

Crazed Firecat

Goblin Bangchuckers

Humble Defector - at least gives you draw, and is friendly in EDH so some politics involved.

Pendant of Prosperity - allows you ramp and again is political

Goblin Festival - keeping in theme to the chaos, flipping, and budget.

Desolate Lighthouse

Mystic Sanctuary

Wild Evocation
