Mox Amber Discussion

Hot take here, but I actually really hope that Imperial Seal doesn't get reprinted now or ever. Seal is much more of a collector's item, and I'd hate to see it pop up in every single black deck I sit down against. Vampiric Tutor is the card that should receive reprints and be in the medium budget range ($25-$50) for decks to acquire. I'd also dislike to see Personal Tutor, Sylvan Tutor, and other valuable Portal cards like Capture of Jingzhou receive reprints as well. All of these cards have equivalents that are much more affordable, and those cards should be receiving the reprints. I also think it will help the player base more to have common staples like Vampiric Tutor and the mirage tutors at budget prices ($10-$25 if I'm dreaming) rather than drop an expensive card like Imperial Seal from $500 down to $200 or $150. Even if Imperial Seal were to drop down to $75 which I consider extremely unlikely, it would still be out of the price range of many of the players who wanted the reprint.
That being said, I believe Imperial Seal will get a reprint in the next 2-5 years with almost 100% certainty. It will be a mythic rare to chase in some premium product.
I'd love to see any and all land reprints outside of ABU Duals. By far the least fun and least sexy part of assembling a deck, but absolutely necessary for 3+ color commanders. Shocklands, Checklands, Filterlands, and Painlands should all be affordable so players can build various decks. I'm even on board for fetchland reprints. I'd also like to see more fast mana reprints, specifically Mana Vault and Mox Amber. I'd also like to see efficient answers reprinted, always down for a Force of Will reprint and even Force of Negation, and I also think Abrupt Decay Assassin's Trophy Toxic Deluge Vandalblast Wrath of God Damnation and more.
I'd also love to see another cycle of Magus creatures. I've always thought they were very tastefully done, and excellent for EDH.

Aether Vial isn't mana ramp, nor do you want to rely on it for big dragons. Gauntlet of Power costs too much mana to be good ramp (you want to stick to cmc 3 or less) plus it doesn't color fix, and only works with basics (which you don't have much room for in a 5c deck). imo, Mox Amber is also too slow when all your legendaries are 5+ mana. it won't be able to produce mana until after you've already reached a point where you can cast your dragons anyway. you want stuff like Arcane Signet and Darksteel Ingot, as well as Farseek which can grab dual lands.
as for lands, a 5c mana base is easy if your group allows proxies. 1 of each fetch land, original duals, and shock lands gives you 30 lands. the rest you can fill out with rainbow lands like Command Tower, and Cavern of Souls. stay away from lands that enter tapped.

Overall I like the deck, very nice :D
I have to agree with Goblin_Guide though, if you aren't running low CMC mana rocks like Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Chrome Mox, Mox Amber or running any fetch lands then you should put 3-4 more lands in there to improve consistency. I would also advise looking at more dual colour lands if you're keeping a low land deck without the fetches - Clearwater Pathway, Darkslick Shores, Drowned Catacomb, Morphic Pool, River of Tears, Underground River.
I know you mentioned keeping a low budget, but the dual lands are definitely something to keep in mind.

to top that, RambIe runs Gamble, Putrid Imp, Carrion Feeder, Faithless Looting, etc. but in all honesty, he seems to troll the forum because he thinks it's funny knowing that the deck-sharing forum would have people share deck ideas, and so saying that netdecking is bad is just funny to him.
When he brought up that my decks looks like ones he's played against and so he'd have an advantage over me I explained that the decks in question were ones that I had pioneered or remade, different Captain Sisay lines I pioneered after Mox Amber's printing, different Sisay, Weatherlight Captain lines I am still innovating on, Aminatou, the Fateshifter Tezzeret based stax which I effectively birthed (unlike the rest I just reimagined), and those decks that he saw as similar to mine were copies/variants of my lists, or of other people who took inspiration from them.
After explaining that on his page, and then asking him to not comment these types of things on another user's forum post, he commented on my page, on a comment that is still up as I type this. He effectively explained that he was understanding that that was not the place for that conversation and that he likes to troll people by stating these things, not personally something I am interested in, but he explains his goals there if you want to know. Hope it helps!

RambIe - I find your entire post rather condescending--particularly your dismissive "seems like they just want everyone to have the same decks doing the same things" line.
Whenever I start out in a new format, I do not look at others' decklists--I break out the pen and paper, go to the Gatherer, and start running old fashioned searches. I go out of my way to avoid learning the format's staples until after I have finished a deck or two, specifically to avoid being prejudiced and to avoid "hav[ing] the same decks doing the same things".
Without ever looking at the staples list, my search for mana accelerators put Mana Crypt on my radar. My search for cheap counterspells found me Force of Will. Repeatable card draw Library and Divining Top. Anyone who is really trying to make a good deck is going to add "staples." That is, after all, how they become staples--their power level is too significant not to include.
Also, I think it would be a good time to point out that those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Seeing as you were dismissive of the idea of staples and rather condescending toward those who use them, I took the liberty of looking at the decks and deck fragments you have posted here. Lo and behold, look what I found:
Sol Ring; Talisman of Indulgence; Phyrexian Altar; Vampiric Tutor; Gamble; Strip Mine; Ancient Tomb; Serra Ascendant; Hushbringer; Aven Mindcensor; Land Tax; Rhystic Study; Smothering Tithe; Brainstorm; Enlightened Tutor; Mental Misstep; Mystical Tutor; Path to Exile; Opt; Swords to Plowshares; Counterspell; Cyclonic Rift; Dovin's Veto; Generous Gift; Teferi's Protection; Winds of Abandon; Fabricate; Idyllic Tutor; Mox Amber; Arcane Signet; Rule of Law; Deafening Silence; Arcane Laboratory; Winter Orb; Noble Hierarch; and maybe a few others I missed.
