Command Tower is not legal in highlander.

Castle Locthwain is not good in deck that has high mana curve - you'll most of the time have multiple cards in hand. In such situations, you don't need card draw and it would hit you hard.

Rakdos Carnarium and Myriad Landscape are a great lands for any deck with high costs because they effectively act as two lands.

Smoldering Marsh, Shadowblood Ridge and Dragonskull Summit are monetarily cheap dual lands.

Lavaclaw Reaches is a dual land that acts as a mana sink in a long game. However, this is the weakest of all creature lands; so if it's not a priority at all. Look for untapped lands.

Advice: You are playing too few lands and too many mana artifacts. The problem with too many artifacts is that you need to spend mana to cast them, while playing lands is free. Playing mana rocks is only good if you have lands to play at the same time. Consider an example: A hand with 3 lands and a mana rock is good - you'll have 4 mana on turn 3. A hand with 2 lands and 2 mana rocks is worse, adnd you'll have 4 mana on turn 4.

I'd be tempted to go full ham and swap the Cathartic Reunion for Burning Inquiry. One mana less and it can disrupt your opponent's hand. Obviously there's risk with RNG but it could be worth it. I'd also consider adding one or two creature lands for reach. If you do Den of the Bugbear and Hive of the Eye Tyrant are both solid but Lavaclaw Reaches is just funny.

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!

I did something like that with Training Grounds. You're missing so many good cards... like Training Grounds. I don't see a date but Valki, God of Lies  Flip is better than Tidehollow Sculler. Then, there's alsways Pack Rat. Draw 2 from Nicol Bolas, BB to make rats.

And with Zirda and/or Training Ground... Lavaclaw Reaches is one of those sneaky manlands that can get huge.

Opted for Lavaclaw Reaches over Hissing Quagmire as a land primarily as a red source to help with the Kessig Wolf Run while keeping the black source and creature land

Thank you for your kind words! :) Hehe, I think this is probably my best named deck ^^

I hadn't thought of Lavaclaw Reaches , you might be on to something, I do have huge mana potential going on.

I'll consider Shamanic Revelation , I generally prefer draw that's more of the incremental value type, but SR can be game winning, so I'll have to try it out.
