Wow! Thank you so much for the kind words!

Suggestions are always more than welcome. I'm definitely not omniscient. In fact, I didn't even think about the almighty Mystic Remora , which is a card I play in a few other decks. It is definitely worth including due to its raw power level. I'm not sure if it's going to replace DC, as I kind of like the flexibility of being able to copy him from the graveyard in the late game. Phyrexian Arena is probably what I'll end up cutting. After all, the average CMC of the deck is low enough that I can afford DC over the Arena. On the same note, I'm considering Ad Nauseam as a way to refuel in the late game. It shouldn't hurt too much. When you say I can dodge Remora's cumulative upkeep by morphing Lazav before my turn begins, what do you actually mean?

Scorched Ruins is yet another awesome suggestion. I particularly like that it taps for because, as you said, it's the magic number for many of our combos. This makes it a lot better than Lotus Vale and Lotus Field . It's a risky play, considering the chance to get blown up by land destruction. However, I think it's worth the risk.

Herald of Leshrac does have a very nice synergy with Lazav, but unfortunately his 7 CMC is way too high for this build. After all, it's the same mana cost of Phage the Untouchable , which can technically kill an opponent with a single attack. However, for a more "casual" build, it's a very fun (for you) card to try out.

Speaking of different kind of builds, that's the reason why I'm not playing Dauthi Voidwalker and Opposition Agent . They are both extremely powerful cards that work particularly well at high power tables, but they would take the deck in a different direction from the one I've chosen. This build is all about killing opponents as fast and safely as possible. I don't really care about interacting with their game plans, because the base idea is "kill them before they can start doing their things". However, mine is definitely not the only way of playing Lazav. I can perfectly see a more staxy build work well with him, where you include lots of cheap hatebears and deny your opponents' resources. It will be less explosive, but viable nonetheless.

Thanks again for your suggestions! They'll make the deck a lot better!

If I'm being honest the area where I know the least about what I'm doing is making a mana base and am open to feedback regarding it but honestly I don't know what you're trying to tell me. I have looked at manabases of top decks with off-color fetches and essentially copied them with slight modification. In none of those top decks have I seen this type of mana base be brought up as having the same issue. I'm definitely in line with Abzkaban's view here.

One of the advantages of this type of mana base that my deck desperately needs is mana fixing as we're trying to win with Phage the Untouchable and Body of Research . This is also why I run Chromatic Lantern . I wouldn't run a mana base this expensive unless I absolutely needed to so if you have an example of a more appropriate mana base please link it here.

Dermotaxi: The unexpected Phage the Untouchable tech

The fact that I can make infinite squirrels without Earthcraft just tickles me. Scurry Oak is going straight into my squirrel deck.

White got some nice new toys in Esper Sentinel and Solitude (actually a good card in the cycle which is rare)

Ragavan is pretty neat, not sure if it will replace Grenzo or Breeches at the helm of those style of decks, but I like the card

Piru is another awesome callback to deep MTG lore.

Lonis is fantastic. I love it when they print commanders for narrow archetypes

Not sure what all the hub-bub about Gaea's Will and Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth is about. The cards are strong but not too strong, and they fit perfectly within Green's color identity. Seem well designed to me. I could see Gaea's Presence being a bit gross in modern As Foretold or Living End decks, but that's about it It'd actually be nice to see a full cycle of Urborg and Yavimaya printed someday.

Nice to see some good $$ reprints in Greed , Mirari's Wake , Enchantress's Presence , Zuran Orb , and Sterling Grove . None of these will impact Modern, but it's great for commander. Other than the clear cash grab choice to print Cabal Coffers at mythic, the reprints have been on point this set so far.

I am annoyed that Vorpal Sword is yet another card that renders Phage the Untouchable obsolete, but I suppose that it was only a matter of time before she fell victim to powercreep.

libraryjoy I primarily play with my friends so I will change it to casual. Some of my favorite cards that I would like to keep are Grand Abolisher and Kambal, Consul of Allocation . I am open to creating any style of deck, but it seems like I already have a lot of exile and destruction cards that I use. I just got Rune-Scarred Demon and Phage the Untouchable for the deck, but I am not super attached to them if you think I should take them out.

TheoryCrafter, K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth sounds excellent, I would love to add him in but am having a bit of trouble finding a spot. Maybe take out 1x Grave Titan and then either 1x Phage the Untouchable or something else? Banehound is wonderful and actually helps out a lot, will definitely replace with Vampire of the Dire Moon . Any other suggestions?
