Deasert_Nomads_be_godly as Daveslab2022 said: the Manabase is the most expensive part, but it is necessary for the Deck. What you can do in Paper is look for cards in suboptimal (Light Played to Poor) condition, this can reduce the price by a lot. Read this if you are interested.
Death's Shadow-Decks usually run between 9-10 Fetchlands, there is a rumor that they will be reprinted next year in MH2 which would also make the price drop a bit.
zAzen7977: Speaking about lands, I highly recommend exchanging 1 Mountain for 1 Swamp to cast Death's Shadow and Scourge of the Skyclaves even with Blood Moon on the field. Also add 1-2 Marsh Flats in exchange for Blackcleave Cliffs.

Hey there! You mention the mana base needing some help in your description, and if you're still looking to work on that, maybe consider some of the following cards! Many may be out of budget, and you could possibly have been aware of them all already, and if that is the case I hope this can be of use to you as a reference!
Since you have the two temples, you may want to include the last one, Temple of Malice. Even though you don't run too many / cards, you still need that colored mana to cast Licia, and so you want a relatively even mana base. Same goes for the last pain land, I'd recommend including Sulfurous Springs since you have the other two. Since you're also gaining a lot of life, and because they are great in general, you may want to take a look at Blood Crypt, Godless Shrine, and Sacred Foundry, (the shock lands) which function very well, especially with the following cards: the fetch lands. Bloodstained Mire, Arid Mesa, and Marsh Flats are some of the best lands in the game! These can search for the shock lands, not just basic lands, allowing you to get any colors you need from just one of them! While that whole set is pretty expensive, it may be something to think about for the future. Now on the cheaper side, there are the wonderful fast lands, Blackcleave Cliffs, Concealed Courtyard, and Inspiring Vantage, which can help you support your early fundamental turns quite well! If you wish to include a lot of basics/shock lands, you may want to think about having the check lands, Dragonskull Summit, Isolated Chapel, and Clifftop Retreat, which tend to be great and also lay on the cheaper side. Last but not least, there are the filter lands, Graven Cairns, Fetid Heath, and Rugged Prairie! Now that said, here are some non-dual lands that could really help fix the mana base quite a lot that I would recommend: City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Ancient Tomb, Prismatic Vista, Fabled Passage, Reflecting Pool, Exotic Orchard, Strip Mine, Wasteland, etc.
Now enough about lands! Here are some ramp spells you might like. Land Tax, Arcane Signet, Commander's Sphere, Talisman of Conviction, Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Indulgence, Jet Medallion, Pearl Medallion, Ruby Medallion, Sol Ring, Gift of Estates, Weathered Wayfarer, Chromatic Lantern, etc!
I also have a mardu deck, (A Deal With the Devil EDH ⫸PRIMER⫷), so if you want to check out most of the cards I mentioned on a list, feel free to pop in there! Anyways though, I hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a wonderful day! Happy tapping!

Instead of getting scammed, I feel like I did the scamming, but to be honest we were both relatively new to Magic and we wanted to get into Modern, because Return to Ravnica was rotating out of Standard and Theros didn't seem that appealing to play Standard in.
My friend happened to have a Marsh Flats he acquired by selling off his Return to Ravnica standard deck. He was building a Jeskai control shell at the time and allied fetch lands had yet to be printed into Modern, so he ran 4 Scalding Tarns with the other fetches consisting of Marsh Flats and Misty Rainforests.
I was building a homebrew Black-White Modern deck at the time, so a Marsh Flats was highly appealing to me, but I didn't have the cash at the time to invest into that fetchland.
Khans of Tarkir just came out along with allied fetch lands however. My friend and I played at the prerelease as it was fun to crack packs and play for prizes. I happened to open a Flooded Strand among my prizes and tried to convince my friend to trade my Flooded Strand for his Marsh Flats.
To be fair, my friend was aware of the sizeable price gap between the cards and his first inclination was that I was trying to scam him of his card so that I could sell the more expensive card for a larger profit. I then told him that in his Jeskai deck his fetchland could only search for Hallowed Fountain, Sacred Foundry or Plains. If he used the Flooded Strand he'd be able to search for the same cards, but he'd also be able to search for a Steam Vents or Island making the Flooded Strand a strictly better card than the fetch land he was already using. I also brought up how the Marsh Flats had better use in my Black-White than Flooded Strand so this would be an exchange that would fairly improve both our decks.
He went with that trade, but neither of us knew that the KTK Flooded Strand was just a reprint of an Onslaught cycle and that he could have purchased the original card for much cheaper at the time. Even today that trade doesn't seem fair, but the price tag of allied fetches did go up due to be included into Modern and Standard though I don't think they ever reached enemy-fetch price-tag territory.

My girlfriend just asked me to put Slivers back together. Anyways, as far as the land base goes I'm gunna list. Things out by cost/relevancy
duals I know eww reserved list but if you got em or can proxy em play em
fetches they're getting their reprint in modern horizons 2 but still stupid expensive - but the fixing is just so good!
Reflecting Pool, Cavern of Souls, City of Brass, Tarnished Citadel, Mana Confluence, Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard, Meteor Crater, Pillar of the Paruns, Ancient Ziggurat, Path of Ancestry, Thran Quarry, Gemstone Mine, Aether Hub and Tendo Ice Bridge
I'm not a mega fan of the depletion lands but they're excellent if you're on a budget :)
shocks - you already got a few I'll recommend getting the rest
Utility lands very overpriced cardboard but the power is definitely there
From there, if those cards are out of budget/you cannot proxy I'd go with the Triomes, battlebond lands Sea of Clouds, check lands Hinterland Harbor, and lastly the painlands Battlefield Forge beyond those the lands start becoming too inefficient and you will be targeted playing slivers. Even if you're not the threat having a slow land base is a death sentence. Hope this helped :)

Feiryn Ok thanks a lot! I Actually have a Path to Exile on the way (referring to your previous comment). I have an Arcane Signet on the way already too. I have a Coalition Relic on hand atm. Will likely get a Fellwar Stone and Nature's Lore too. Also actually have a Smoldering Marsh that I didn't realise I had coming. Also I'm in the process of updating the deck!
OK, now onto the meaty stuff... I'm about to spend more money LMAO. I want to get your opinion on which of these cards I should use in THIS deck, or which ones I shouldn't bother with in your opinion -
Blood Crypt, Breeding Pool, Canopy Vista, Demonic Tutor, Dromoka, the Eternal, Fellwar Stone, Future Sight, Hallowed Fountain, Herald's Horn, Kaalia of the Vast, Marsh Flats, Maze of Ith, Mirari's Wake, Nature's Lore, Nesting Dragon, Overgrown Tomb, Polluted Delta, Steam Vents, Stomping Ground, Temple Garden, Urza's Incubator, Windswept Heath,

No problem! It just comes down to experience really. If you're playing on Cockatrice, I wholly recommend running Tundra and a full set of fetchlands:
Fetchlands hit any card with its land type in its description. For example Arid Mesa hits any Plains, meaning not only can it fetch basics but also can get you Tundra and Hallowed Fountain. They're one of the best things you can do for a deck's consistency. I recommend cutting Evolving Wilds and Fabled Passage to start, and then decide on what else you want to drop for the rest.
Next you'll want to be adding fast mana. Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Mox Diamond, Mox Opal, and Chrome Mox will help a tonne. Keep Sol Ring and Arcane Signet alongside them, altogether they'll speed the deck up a lot which especially helps due to your higher average cmc.
On top those you could add Fierce Guardianship and Pact of Negation as great counterspells, as well as Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora for card draw. Of course the more stuff you add in general the more you have to remove, so it's up to you.
Ojutai is a great commander though, so have fun!

Hey there mate! From what I see, you have all three shock lands (Pay 2 on ETB), all the filter lands (Pay X/Y get combination) and the check lands (ETB tapped unless X/Y). These are all great lands, but I think almost everything else can get a nice sweet upgrade. Note some of my suggestions may not be in your budget
- Blackcleave Cliffs
- Concealed Courtyard
- Inspiring Vantage
- Bloodstained Mire (Budget: Rocky Tar Pit
- Marsh Flats
- Arid Mesa
- Sulfurous Springs
- Caves of Koilos/Silent Clearing
- Battlefield Forge/Sunbaked Canyon
- Luxury Suite
- Vault of Champions
- Spectator Seating
- Ancient Tomb
- Prismatic Vista (A better Evolving Wilds)
- City of Brass
- Mana Confluence
- Reflecting Pool
- Strip Mine/Wasteland (A better Ghost Quarter)
- Gemstone Caverns
Glacial Chasm (For Pillowfort?)
Now I know that is quite a lot, but don't worry- I have an idea. I personally believe all of the following could and should be cut for some of the suggestions below, as you progress with your deck. Akoum Refuge, Bloodfell Caves, Evolving Wilds, Ghost Quarter, Nomad Outpost (Maybe Savai Triome instead?), Opal Palace, Scoured Barrens, Smoldering Marsh (it's only good in decks heavy with basics), Wind-Scarred Crag, etc!
Hope this helps! If you like my suggestions be sure to support some of my decks (Double Trouble EDH *PRIMER*). Anyways though, hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day! Happy tapping!
