Grand Coliseum Discussion

Ixalan dino decks are always cool. +1 for having matching basics!
Some potential upgrades I'd suggest would be some more efficient lands such as shock lands, Spectator Seating , Bountiful Promenade , Spire Garden , Sunbaked Canyon , Grand Coliseum and definitely Ancient Ziggurat . You might also want to think about some more artifact ramp such as Arcane Signet , Pillar of Origins , Herald's Horn or Urza's Incubator (though that last one has skyrocketed in price recently).
Some cuts I'd recommend would be Fiery Emancipation due to it's triple red requirement, New Horizons for more efficent ramp, Territorial Hammerskull due to lack of impact and Thundering Spineback because seven mana to give other dinos +1/+1 is a bit too costly.

Hey! Since you asked about the mana base, I looked around a bit and found a few cards you might find interesting. Rupture Spire and Transguild Promenade are basically more Gateway Plazas, and if you're fine with the slowness they cause your deck en masse, they'll be great. Grand Coliseum is a bit more pricey, though it isn't super expensive, so make whatever decision you will with that. Zendikar Rising probably has a whole bunch of stuff you'd like, but as far as lands, Base Camp could be good, even if a bit unreliable. But take a look at the set, I feel like there's some stuff for that deck there. Very cool deck!

Hey, well done on a budget.
You've added several excellent Rainbow lands, but then there's subpar 5 Vivid lands as well as 3 Rupture Spire lands and 11 Tri lands. The current manabase is very slow with 20+ of 37 lands will always enter the battlefield (ETB) tapped. I understand you're on a budget; I too play budget Commander decks and you can do much better than 20+ lands ETB tapped even on a $300 budget. 11 Tri lands, Path of Ancestry and Grand Coliseum is more than enough lands that will always ETB tapped.
To speed up the manabase you could simply add more basic lands and some cards that have interaction with basic lands. Manabase changes to consider:
- Add 4x Forest, 2x Mountain, 1x Plains, Ash Barrens, Harrow, cut 5 Vivid lands, Rupture Spire, Gateway Plaza, Transguild Promenade, Temple of Malice.
If you make this change then could also add 5 Battle lands: Cinder Glade, Canopy Vista, Sunken Hollow, Prairie Stream, Smoldering Marsh, cut 5 Tri lands. Battle lands are budget dual lands that have good interaction when you have more basic lands. The Battle lands will give Farseek a dual land to search for.
Cataracts is a helpful land to cast Ur-Dragon with basic lands or colorless mana sources because any combination of 5 mana along with tapping Cataracts makes all five colors of mana. For example Sol Ring + Thran Dynamo + Cataracts = five colors of mana. Cataracts is also good with Fist of Suns.
I offer more advice and I have other cards suggestions. Would you like more advice and suggestions? Good luck with your deck.

When you go about upgrading the lands, make sure to add ones that will give you more than enough color flexibility. Sure, you want to cast Scion of the Ur-Dragon easily, but you also want to cast things like Bladewing the Risen, Drakuseth, Maw of Flames, Scourge of Valkas and Dragon Broodmother that will have you needing three of one color in some cases. This means that having shock lands (Without fetches) may not be the best choice.
Good budget options for 5-color lands include: The Vivid cycle (Vivid Crag), Grand Coliseum, City of Brass (You can find cheap ones in foreign languages and sub-optimal conditions.) and even sometimes the more expensive ones like Reflecting Pool, where you can use strategies mentioned above to save money.
Trilands are also good, but it may be a bad draw when you get the colors you don't want, or just don't need a land in hand.
If you have another deck that can always use shock lands, then I think having them in The Ur-Dragon is fine.

Where's Grand Coliseum?
Helm of Possession could be nice, too.
Evangel of Heliod for even more tokens?

I’d tweak the mana base if it’s in your budget, add more duals or lands that tap for any colour.
Karplusan Forest and Llanowar Wastes are great budget options and Sulfurous Springs is a bit on the higher side but still good. Or the filter lands like Twilight Mire. Few other options you might like are City of Brass or lower budget Grand Coliseum / Rupture Spire as these are great for mana fixing.
I have two deck lists, one for the scorpion god and one for hapatra in posted on here, feel free to look on my page and check them out if you want :)
