You have to many tap lands, Graypelt Refuge, Tranquil Expanse, Temple of Plenty, Selesnya Guildgate, Saltcrusted Steppe, Evolving Wilds, and Blossoming Sands just shouldn't be run. Use basics or use expensive duels that can enter untapped. I'd personally remove Scattered Groves, Opal Palace, Gavony Township, and Animal Sanctuary I find them to be slow and often don't return the value spent.

Just a note, one for one trades like Beast Within tend to be bad in commander. You also will probably want to run more one to two mana ramp cards like Avacyn's Pilgrim and Wild Growth.

I personally think that's a lot of guildgates and taplands. I'd dump the no-ability taplands and replace them with Canopy Vista, Scattered Groves, and Bojuka Bog, and I'd dump the guildgates for Wood Elves and two basics, it'll help speed the deck up a little. Cavalier of Night could be a good one depending on your budget, gives you some more removal options, also see Reclamation Sage, Ambush Viper and Acidic Slime.

7/23: Took out: 1 of each basic. Added in: Canyon Slough, Fetid Pools, Irrigated Farmland, Scattered Groves, Sheltered Thicket.

Looking into doing some weird thing with my manabase, going possibly basic free, using 8/10 of the Ravnica Guild bounce lands, switching my basic land cyclers into the Alara Reborn land type cyclers cycle (like Pale Recluse). The bounce lands would let me keep fewer lands while keeping a normal mana/turn, and bounce the cycling lands back to my hand to cycle out.

Considering putting in Land Grant and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove for consistency.

My thoughts are that the best improvements could be made to the landbase. Command Tower, Path of Ancestry, Jungle Shrine, Field of Ruin, Krosan Verge, Scavenger Grounds, Rogue's Passage... Sure, the last three are colorless, but you can usually afford a few colorless utility lands in a 3 color deck. I'd also recommend Cinder Glade, Canopy Vista, Sheltered Thicket, and Scattered Groves, as they can be searched up by the verge and count as their respective basic types for your checklands and showlands. Also makes Skyshroud Claim worth considering, which would be a great addition to your ramp package! I'd dump the guildgates, untyped tapped lands, and the bouncelands for them, but the bouncelands might be worth keeping if your group doesn't play much land destruction, in which case I'd dump the lifelands.

Migration Path is a strict upgrade to Explosive Vegetation, and Rampant Growth is a strict upgrade to Thunderherd Migration since it always costs 2. Less flavorful, but more efficient.

Lastly, Sol Ring, it's the most powerful ramp in the format, definitely worth considering.

Be careful with the legality of your deck. Scattered Groves is not legal in a Boros EDH deck because it's color identity is . If you run Zirda as a companion as you have to abide by the restriction as per the oracle text. For Zirda every permanent (Land, Creature, Artifact, Enchantment and Planeswalker) cards in your deck should have an activated ability. An activated ability is anything with with "Cost : effect". ":" is an indication of an activated ability. Cards like Phyrexian Soulgorger and Myrsmith have triggered abilities, not activated abilities, and are not legal in a Zirda companion deck.

Also beware that a change was made to the Companion mechanic so you have to pay to put it in your hand rather than straight up casting it like a commander .

It's not entirely clear who your commander is. You can mark your commander with the tag *CMDR* and your companion with *CMPN* tappedout formatting

Fix these issues and I'll take another look. But it's hard to provide feedback for a deck of 40 illegal cards and no commander ;)

Hey, you're welcome.

When looking at the color requirements of the cards in your deck green is overall most important therefore Forests should be the most basic lands in the manabase. A basic Forest will do a lot more for you than a basic Mountain or Plains. Can cast land ramp spells with green and they get you the other colors especially Farseek, Lore and Skyshroud if you add some dual lands that are two different land types.

My advice is rely more on dual lands for white and red than basic lands. Lantern and Dryad help a lot for color fixing, but don't want to count on having one of them every game therefore make the manabase function without them and have them as a bonus. Grand Abolisher sticks out in white. Other than him white is the least important color here and green has many sources that can help to get you white mana.

The ratio of basic lands to use really depends on what kind of manabase you want to make. You want most lands in the manabase to be able to make green mana and on a budget this means lots of Forests. A budget manabase of Check lands, Battle lands, Pain lands, Bounce lands will have more basic lands. Compare this to a more expensive manabase of more Rainbow lands, Fetch lands, Shock lands, Battlebond lands, Pain lands, Bounce lands will have less basic lands. The expensive manabase would replace some basic lands with more lands that can make more than one color.


Budget 36 land manabase example (27 green sources, 17 red, 17 white):
