(1), Sacrifice a creature: Search your library for a land card with a basic land type and put it into play tapped. Then shuffle your library.
Perilous Forays Discussion
1 week ago
Post-scriptum: I just noticed this doesn't say basic land in the search clause. So it is indeed a recurable fetchland... Kinda wish it did say basic land in the search clause. /PS
Cards that basically does the same but don't "pause" (not untap):
While most of these are more vulnerable than say a nonbasic land (depends on the format though) and may or may not require some additional hoop (the Sword and Perilious) or straight out costs more mana or the same amount of mana to output the first land - the pause on this makes it worse than most of these alternatives - even those that don't put them on the field.
You also lock this into just finding one specific type of basic lands. I really think you could buff the card in a few various ways without causing much of an issue.
Either reducing the activation cost, removing the pause-clause (no pun intended) or enabling a way to circumvent the pause-clause.
"Protean Palace enters the battlefield tapped.
As Protean Palace enters the battlefield, choose a basic land type. Protean Palace has the chosen type in addition to its other types.
, : search your library for a basic land card of the chosen type, put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library. Put a rest counter on Protean Palace, it doesn't untap during your untap step while it has a rest counter on it.
: Remove all rest counters from Protean Palace.
At the beginning of your upkeep, remove all rest counters from Protean Palace."
Functionally much the same but with an ability to sink more mana into it, to basically become a Journeyer's Kite . The difference is slightly more mana investment in the long run, it being a land, and that it only searches for one type of basic lands - but dumps them onto the field.

Ok. So depending entirely on YOUR meta, I'm not a fan of a bunch of the lands. You have 4-5 of the 'pay 2life or it ETBs tapped'. That's 8-10 life. Sure you got lifelink on a bunch of guys, but cmdr isn't guaranteed. I'd consider swapping those out, unless it was purely because you have those already. Atraxa has 4/5 mtg colors, I'd run the
as stats say your opp will likely be running 2-4 colors, meaning you'll have 1-3 colors in common min.
Your utility lands like the Bastion and Gavony are great choices for this. On the same related note check if you have a Coat of Arms , tribal almost demands you run this card and it can get OP real quick. I ran a Sigarda/human tribal and it wasn't uncommon to have 30 tokens with 30/30ea. They'll still die laughably to a disk or other similar wipe, but meh: 30x 30/30s.
- Assess that Darksteel Plate. I know it is great if you're running 1 fatty, but you should have a s$^&-ton of tokens. I'd consider swapping it for others.
- You got a lot of low CMC instants, but no Isochron Scepter . Consider running this, or sideboarding it. It explains itself.
- The Gilded Lotus. Replace that. Thran Dynamo , Lotus Vale would be my ideas. That or just playtest without another mana rock
- Assess the usefulness of that jellyfish. It seems cumbersome.
- Consider Lord of Extinction . I know Tormod and Dakmor et al can vaporize him with graveyard hate, but otherwise he's pretty solid. Give him trample/first/death/lifelink and ppl will hate you.
- Misc Suggestions: Odric, Master Tactician , Plaguemaw Beast , Anointed Procession , Perilous Forays , Cloudshift , Reclaim , Rootborn Defenses ...Finally EDH staples to assess The Disk, Panharmonicon , Strionic Resonator , Silence , Doom Blade / Murder
- ONE CARD TO ADD NO MATTER WHAT: Primal Vigor . Self-explanatory.
Well...That is all I got at the moment. You're really going heavy tokens so that's fine, just be sure to stay focused and not trying too many different things. :)

Ha nice name! I really dig the low budget on this, especially since the deck looks strong even with the low cost. You might consider giving these cards a try: Snake Umbra , Keen Sense , Perilous Forays , Fallen Ideal , Sadistic Glee , Eternal Thirst , Blade of the Bloodchief

This is a great first draft, especially for someone returning to the game after a long absence. I recommend swapping out the following: Acorn Harvest, Chatter of the Squirrel, Grizzly Fate, Golgari Germination, Spellbook, Vulturous Zombie, Boreal Druid.

Lotus Cobra is a pretty good card especially when paired with Perilous Forays which is already in your deck. You'll more than likely be able to alpha people with just sacrificing your tokens and domeing them.

I feel like you could use more ramp, especially since you're in 5 colors. one of my favorites is Perilous Forays + Omnath, Locus of Rage . you pay and sacrifice one of his elementals for 3 damage and then immediately get a basic to replace it. Also Tyrant of Discord is my favorite etb to abuse among elementals.

I understand. Many people think overrun effects are cheese, though I disagree (since they require the combination of multiple creatures, and cards like Torment of Hailfire require nothing but mana).
Drain effects are hard to pull off, and if you want to gear your deck towards them, you will find that your wincon of pinging opponents to death will revolve around a bunch of cheap token creatures. Zulaport Cutthroat , Blood Artist , and Poison-Tip Archer offer you your road to victory if you can reliably sacrifice the tokens from Hornet Queen , Avenger of Zendikar , Deep Forest Hermit , and Tendershoot Dryad , just to name a few of my favorite army-in-a-can creatures.

I BUMP BECAUSE I NOW NEED TO OPPOSE LIERARY ORIGIN, BAKA YAROU!
After hell on earth to think of a name for my Yarok, the Desecrated , I got one:
("The Elegy of the Finale (Or "Demise") of the Genocide.")
All Lament of Bala Ged stanzas included.
But, I still have some ideas for the Half Equip-GoLion, & Half Saprocide deck that is in dire need of such Ideas I chose; then I'll leave it there. I actually more recently than not, some that works really well, to just suckage. I posted this ; I know I shouldn't be clingy at all, but here they are:
These are the best I can find, but what to keep? I'll leave it to you.
As for the decks mentioned still, I'll simplify them if that's what is demanded. Xantcha needs 13 cuts, Neheb needs Artifact draw, & cuts not just from an incompleat Maybeboard I treat as a Hotseat section, but from you. Kadena has a Hot seat at 100 for a chance to stay in the deck, only to replace w/ whatever means. Same for Pirate Tribal with Brass. Is it worth being as simple as it gets? I just find those words as too compacted, & not for the better; not like this at least. What would you recommend for any of this? I just made a Micro-sized things I want for each deck, & I only confused it more that I would through thorough detail. Any suggestions? I'm literally about to make a Follow-up of this forum post if this Phails.
