Tainted Isle Discussion

Hey, well done for first deck on a budget, nice Demonic Tutor. You've definitely done research into the better budget cards for Varina and adding win condition combos. Liquimetal Torque + Binding Mummy is interesting tech.
I see Wonder which is great with Varina, but it's going to be difficult to consistently activate Wonder needing an Island land with only 4 Islands + Wilds/Expanse for a total of only 6 Island sources. There's several dual lands here that could be replaced by budget Island dual lands to help Wonder and make Marsh Flats better.
Some budget land upgrades to consider:
- Command Tower --> Rupture Spire
- Exotic Orchard --> Crumbling Vestige
- Esper Panorama --> Orzhov Guildgate
- Sunken Hollow --> Dimir Guildgate
- Prairie Stream --> Azorius Guildgate
- Ice Tunnel --> Dismal Backwater
- Irrigated Farmland --> Tranquil Cove
- Glacial Floodplain --> Meandering River
- Caves of Koilos --> Forsaken Sanctuary
- Tainted Isle --> Dimir Aqueduct
- Tainted Field --> Orzhov Basilica
- Choked Estuary --> Scoured Barrens
Graveborn Muse is amazing repeatable draw with Zombies and the life lose doesn't matter much because of Varina. Muse can repeatedly refill your hand at the beginning of your turn giving you lots of choices for looting with Varina. Vile Entomber can tutor for Wonder or Gravecrawler and put it right into your graveyard. Patriarch's Bidding is another spell for mass reanimation of your Zombies.
Shepherd of Rot can wreck opponents life totals, who don't have life gain and it doesn't hurt you as much because you have a lot of life gain with Varina. If you're trying to win with Rooftop Storm then Lazotep Plating is excellent instant protection. Hordewing Skaab is a Zombie upgrade for Eternal Skylord to give all Zombies you control flying not just tokens.
- Graveborn Muse --> Corpse Augur
- Vile Entomber --> Tymaret Calls the Dead
- Patriarch's Bidding --> Necromancer's Covenant
- Shepherd of Rot --> Cemetery Recruitment
- Lazotep Plating --> In Oketra's Name
- Hordewing Skaab --> Eternal Skylord
Good luck with your deck.

If you're building with the goal of making the game last a few extra turns, then Arena's great. But you need to be building around having more upkeeps than you otherwise would have.
It's sort of like Night's Whisper is a Swamp while Arena is Tainted Isle. You're automatically considering one, while the other is plausible but easily cuttable.

Just updated my wants on my Binder. Take a look and see if we can make a trade!
And I'm also always looking for good lands, so if you have any pain/filter/Bond/fetchlands that aren't on my list, feel free to include it.
In the spirit of giving, I'll throw in a fun random card or token with any trade, too. :)

Anyone claiming Spell Pierce is bad is insane. It's an amazing card in any playgroup that is tuned in any way. is a pretty big tax. However, it's not good as generic countermagic -- it's for crushing combos or protecting your combo.
If your playgroup isn't tuned to any degree, doesn't run many combos at all, and you're not using a combo wincon, replace Spell Pierce. If you're playing anything other than low power hyper casual commander, keep Spell Pierce and add more countermagic. Every blue deck should include Negate, Counterspell, Dispel.
Second, you have 14 taplands. This is horrible. I don't care what meta you're in, fix that. I'll give you some tips: River of Tears, Nimbus Maze, and Caves of Koilos are all really cheap and will make your manabase a lot better. Cut a handful of taplands for more basics -- they're great and in budget manabases they are necessary for making your deck work. Glacial Fortress, Isolated Chapel, Drowned Catacomb aren't too pricey and will make your manabase MUCH better. Tainted Field and Tainted Isle are pretty cheap.

Taking a second look at your manabase, this is not a competitive deck at all. Maybe your nonland cards are good, but you need to fix your manabase. Kabira Crossroads is one of the worst monocolored lands I've ever seen, especially in a format with 40 life and a deck full of lifelink creatures. Memorial to Folly and Tresserhorn Sinks also suck, and Tainted Isle isn't even in the Mardu color identity. If you're going to label a deck as competitive, please make sure it is a competitive deck.

Hey there! Maybe consider some of the following lands!
Less than $10:
- Sunken Ruins
- Underground River
- Choked Estuary
- Drowned Catacomb
- Waterveil Cavern
- Rootwater Depths
- Tainted Isle
- Exotic Orchard
- Darkwater Catacombs
- Bad River

also I would do some small mana fixing that is cheap like:
