Paradise Mantle Discussion

I'm not sure about glacial/scrying sheets- Into the north is slow, scrying sheets takes you off of desperately needed coloured mana and glacial refills your hand, but can't pick up gas (most creatures non-snow), so Winding Way or Once Upon a Time might be stronger. They are great cards if you want to be midrange, but this is a zoo list.
Since your creatures mostly care about forests (sorry wild nacatyl), you might look at increasing the forest count and running more artifact fixing ( Springleaf Drum , Chromatic Sphere , Navigator's Compass , Paradise Mantle ), which would also let you pick up Shrapnel Blast to finish games. While I'm mentioning burn options, I have seen Tribal Flames in non budget versions of these lists- representing ten points of burn from flames/blast will win games.
There is also the option of trying to make your creatures mostly playable with green mana (like Sunblade Elf , Lupine Prototype or Soultether Golem ), then cast Lush Growth / Nylea's Presence or get a singleton Sacred Foundry off Flower / Flourish . This is a bit more fragile.
If you want to go harder into snow-matters, Boreal Druid and Coldsteel Heart offer ramp, while Frostwalk Bastion is a decent manland, but that will look more like a midrange value list (eventually becoming another Ice-Fang Coatl list, and less like zoo, and may call for dropping to two colours on a budget.

Hey, consider cutting some redundancy for more stax?
Cards to consider cutting:
- Giver of Runes : Mother is better because she can give herself protection.
- Stonehewer Giant : Stoneforge is better.
- Rogue's Gloves : Mask is better.
- Paradise Mantle : Mox is better.
- Champion's Helm : Boots is better because of haste.
- Reforge the Soul : Wheel is better.
- Single Combat
- Winds of Abandon
- Springleaf Drum
- Sword of the Animist
- Basilisk Collar
- Tenza, Godo's Maul
From a competitive standpoint I think mana rocks and stax cards are better artifacts to pump Akiri then lots of equipment.

I'd say the best low-budget land option is probably Caves of Koilos , and given how dedicated your deck is to life-gain, the life lost shouldn't be terrible. The next best option in my opinion, is Temple of Silence - if you're going to use tap-lands, I think Scry is as good as it gets for a trade-off. The problem with Bounce Lands is that they're practically anti-ramp they're so slow. If you want to ramp in BW, something like Springleaf Drum or Paradise Mantle would work. Or some Myr dorks like Gold Myr . There aren't great options really, so it's important in Modern, which is very fast, that you really focus on keeping your CMCs as low as possible. If you're not already aware, All the lands in a sorted list is pretty much the best resource for finding lands for any deck. You can just use CTRL+F or APPLEKEY+F to search the page for color combos or since some color combos (like GR) is in lots of words, if you know of one land, just search for that and you'll find all the lands of similar color or effect.
In terms of what to drop to make room for removal spells, I'd suggest trimming back on Legendary spels. Since Cliffhaven Vampire is so important to the deck, and because it costs 4, all the other Legendaries that cost more are essentially less good redundancies. And since you've got 2 of some of them, there's a decent chance you'll have dead cards. So -1x Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Obzedat, Ghost Council, and Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord each, if not cutting them all together. God-Eternal Oketra falls into the same category. Aside from those creatures, Sovereign's Bite also seems like a good candidate for a cut. It's not that any of these are bad spells, just that you're going to get more mileage out of disrupting opponents than you are hammering away at them. In my experience, whenever I try to play a creature heavy deck light on utility/disruption, I end up with few or no creatures and no way to fight back.

One of the thing I love playing with Traxos is Paradise Mantle : being 0 mana is a free untap and once equipped to your commander makes each historic you play read "Add one mana", which is great for the almost insignificant cost of including it.
Let me know if such interaction is something could find place in your list!

Nice deck! I love the interaction between Traxos and Paradise Mantle , I think it could easily generate a ton of mana.

Since this list is really about ramping, I suggest you change the parameters and/or title to include non-creature ramp spells and also creatures and spells that reduce casting costs, which are all just as useful. If this is somehow too impure for your list, I'd be happy to start my own. Just let me know! Here's a few off the top of my head (some are actual dork creatures you're currently missing): Cabal Stronghold , Smothering Tithe , Paradise Mantle , Springleaf Drum , Utopia Sprawl , Fertile Ground , Dawn's Reflection , Market Festival , Weirding Wood , Overgrowth , Wild Growth , Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, Explore , Harvest Season , Pyretic Ritual , Geosurge , Black Lotus , Mox Opal , Mox Amber , Mox Tantalite , Rosheen Meanderer , Gargos, Vicious Watcher , Heartless Summoning , Growth Spiral , Incubation Druid , Harabaz Druid , Savage Ventmaw
