Doing it without Tron lands could give you a brew that looks very similar to existing Soulherder archtypes (just without Soulherder)... something like this might be almost-competitive (although at this point, it's a very different list to what you're trying to achieve, so not sure if this is the route you'd want to go down):

deathjunky If I were trying to build a Modern Panharmonicon with Tron Lands deck, I think i’d initially set myself the following restrictions:

  1. Make sure there’s a full playset of Panharmonicon. The card is important to have in play, so we should be ensuring we get it.

  2. Ensure that the vast majority of the deck benefits from Panharmonicon. I would ditch the Eldrazi entirely for this, and focus on artifacts to make for a toolboxy build using Whir of Invention (this would allow us to get setup, while also getting pieces we need).

  3. Figure out how much we need Tron active. We either need low-ish cmc with Chalice of the Void, or we need to splash green to ensure Tron becomes active. I’m personally in favour of option A, though i think i’d still splash green for the likes of Thragtusk.

I think i’d end up with something like this (just spitballing, so this can easily be refined):

(Note, after going through that exercise, the biggest takeaway I have is that I don’t think Panharmonicon wants to be in the same deck as Tron-lands. If i’d just built this as a UG creature list, instead of a tron based build, i think it’d have been easier to ramp, and have access to better payoffs (i.e Hornet Queen). I think the best path forward for your Panharmonicon might be to ditch Tron)

Like the argument is that Snow lands modify the mana, allowing mana from Snow-Covered Island to pay for Rimescale Dragon's and that Snow embodies an entire diverse biome.

Okay. So Supertype Desert, do the same thing where you modify the mana, and uh last time I checked a Desert is a biome in of itself. So what's the issue?? WOTC makes new mechanics and rule changes all the time. Everybody bitches about how broken an idea is, but once it's in print suddenly it's magically acceptable. Like if we were pre-Alara and someone said they had an idea where a "modifier token" changed the rules of the game, for the remainder of the game, but no player could interact with it - that person would be called every hateful name under the sun. But Emblems are perfectly fine and, according to many, SHOULDN'T be able to be interacted with because that's the whole "point" of an emblem.

I guarantee that if / when WOTC makes something that says "Target player loses an emblem of your choice", the community would shit bricks for a week or two and then it would be perfectly fine and we would all be on here looking for synergy and making custom cards.

The fact of the matter is, there is zero legitimate argument as to why Desert can not nor should not be a supertype.

No card over 3%? Pfft you didn't track Snow-Covered Island
Lol, Thank you for taking the time to update us. I can't say either of these come as a surprise.
Any update on Urza's Saga ?

Cards: Glacial Crevasses, Snow-Covered Mountain.

I've had my eye on possibly running Glacial Crevasses in my EDH decks for quite some time now as I feel it makes an excellent combat deterrent. By having this card on the field the whole table knows I can completely negate an attack thrown at me even when tapped out which can help keep combat-oriented decks from wanting to waste their combat step on me.

The problem is this card only works if I have Snow-Covered Mountains. If I have none Glacial Crevasses means nothing to my opponent, if I have one Snow-Covered Mountain my opponents might try to fish me into sacking it and if I have three Snow-Covered Mountains my opponents will likely not bother with me until the game reaches a 1-versus-1 state.

This card is easier to run in mono-red decks, but I want to put it in 3-color decks which means I don't want to flood my entire manabase with Snow-Covered Mountains especially if I'm not going to draw into Glacial Crevasses certain games.

Additionally would you count fetch-lands towards your Snow-Covered Mountain count, such as Arid Mesa , Ash Barrens , Bloodstained Mire , Prismatic Vista , Scalding Tarn and Wooded Foothills? (My 3-color red decks usually run all 6 of these fetches just to color fix with Ravnica shock lands if needed.)

Also how good would you evaluate Unstable Frontier as a utility land? If I'm running Snow-Covered Forests, Snow-Covered Islands, Snow-Covered Plains or Snow-Covered Swamps, I can use Unstable Frontier to turn any of them into a Snow-Covered Mountain and as a color fixing source if I have too many Snow-Covered Mountains, but I don't know if it would be better to just use another Snow-Covered Mountain over it instead.

Lastly, should I run cards like Alpine Meadow, Highland Forest, Sulfurous Mire and Volatile Fjord? I already run all the Modern fetch-lands that could tutor for lands such as these, so I could hit them very consistently, but I don't like the fact they're tap-lands. Given I run only three colored decks I can only ever fit any of two of them at a time. Would they be worth an inclusion?

Thank you for your insight.

I love goblin electromancer ;) Ideas: Augur of Bolas is good. If you change out your basics for Snow-Covered Island and Snow-Covered Mountain you could run Skred

Would you switch out the Forests, Island, and Temples for the Rimewood Falls and Snow-Covered Island ?
