I'm ok with bolt to face for mana, but which is more optimal Gemstone Caverns or Tarnished Citadel ?

Duals Volcanic Island , Plateau , Tundra > fetches Scalding Tarn , Arid Mesa , Flooded Strand > shocks Steam Vents , Sacred Foundry , Hallowed Fountain > rainbows Mana Confluence , City of Brass , Tarnished Citadel

Good mana bases are expensive; basically, if something is out of budget look at the next thing. :) hope this helps some.

It's already pretty good man! Obvious upgrades would be the land base. Fetches like Polluted Delta , Scalding Tarn , and Bloodstained Mire ; shocks Watery Grave , Steam Vents , and Blood Crypt . Lastly, the rainbows Mana Confluence , City of Brass and Tarnished Citadel . Now I know lands are boring and expensive but they'll up the consistancy of the deck by a lot especially in a 3 color deck. Only if it's within your budget though :)

Says this under the help section but it already looks pretty fleshed out. The rainbow lands like City of Brass , Mana Confluence and Tarnished Citadel definitely help with the 4c mana base and are definitely worth the pain. Also, when it becomes legal Arcane Signet is an excellent rock; I'm sure its' price point will drop after people start opening the decks.

@Dark_Danda Hello 50-75% player.... Seems you are either very new to Cedh or Stax in general and don't understand this deck at all... All your suggestions were aimed at 50 - 75% decks and would work in very slow meta but are not recommended for 100% pods... anyway there is also a sideboard part that has all the cards you suggested in the description so it's pointless to post it for slower meta...

But suggesting Prime Speaker Vannifar being better than pod? this is either bait, troll, or hate hence the removal of the post.. or even Adarkar Wastes for a land that is far better like Tarnished Citadel xD... I spam play this deck in meta that abuses these primary decks to their fullest ( https://cedh-decklist-database.xyz/primary.html )

I'd stick to this build if you face a lot of 100% decks... you could add meta cards or more removal like swords and path or "spell pierce like 1 mana counters" and the fact you don't play this deck to know the intricate details and many of the cards busted uses is enough to not take the post serious as well...

Yours sincerely Kiyomei.

Hi Kiyomei,

Very nice deck you got there. Please, allow me to give some input as a fellow cEDH player. First off, I see all stax cards in your deck there is but very few removals. Hence, I kindly would like to share some input on balancing the decks versatility.

I hope this was insightful to you. And no, I am not playing Derevi myself ;) But I do actually play a lot against it.

Cheers, Danda

@GhostChieftain: Well, I think I might know about how to revise the whole thing, negating Tranquil Garden & co., Any Damn Gate Subtype Land. , & 's only chance for Duals that Phailed.

Shocks & Pain Lands shouldn't be a problem. Exotic Orchard , Forbidden Orchard , Reflecting Pool , Mana Confluence (Because City of Brass is considered strictly worse in my opinion. It was alright, but just tapping for no mana? Prepare to get ping'd.), but Tarnished Citadel ? Hmmm... That's one hell of a sell. As for Taplands, Thanks. I think I've already decided; just don't expect me bouncing my own land back...

DAYUM, SON. (Sorry; I couldn't help myself. It was too easy.) Delay is THAT good? Why do I even have stuff in w/ Mana Drain ?! There was already a price fluctuation, so... Why not?

Might as well make a list of Tutors for that in terms of individual color; or is there already a guide for this? (Yes.) Again, this is color restrictive...

Finally, Talismans, Signets, Fellwar Stone , Arcane Signet ... That's a lot of work for me to think of. Now I have to rank 4 of the best non- Sol Ring related Rocks now... XP

Anyways, thanks. I'll have to repair my Landbase(s) later. I've got other crap to settle...
