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.

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.
Copperhorn Scout doesn't fly, is likely to die and doesn't add much to the deck since you already get to untap with your commander. I would rather suggest to instead add some removal in the form of Ulvenwald Tracker , which adds tremendous values combined with all the untaps
Ethersworn Canonist chances are that your opponents won't play a lot of spells due to Winter Orb ect... and you already got the best one of all ( Eidolon of Rhetoric ), therefore I would rather swap it for some better hate in cEDH which would be Spirit of the Labyrinth
Vryn Wingmare same goes here. I wouldn't play any stax pieces with CMC 3 or higher (too slow and you get better effects for same CMC). For 3 CMC can get Recruiter of the Guard , Eternal Witness , Knight of the Reliquary , Knight of Autumn , Banisher Priest / Fiend Hunter . Note: In your case I would go for removal effects, since you have only Gilded Drake . A Yisan deck would crush yours since it is not affected by stax (since it's a stax deck as well) and would tutor Ulvenwald Tracker and kill all your flyers and dorks.
Archon of Valor's Reach I think this is a classic win-more card which you don't really need to win the game. An alternative would be Gaddock Teeg . However, if you insist on having a high CMC mana drop that completely destroys the game board in your favor, I would like to introduce Willbreaker
Utopia Sprawl / Wild Growth : Since you are a creature deck I would much rather play the remaining mana dorks in order to have more hitters for untap triggers but more importantly, to not be affected by your own stax. Remaining dorks are: Boreal Druid , Priest of Titania ,
Nature's Claim since you are a creature deck and you will be slowing down the game tremendously, I strongly believe that Aura Shards is a better option to go with. It is recurrent and you are very light on removal. What can you do against a Cursed Totem or Humility ?
Tangle Wire I believe you don't really need this stax piece. It's one of the weakest and only holds up a very short time. Instead try for example Nature's Will - this has proven to be quite devastating. Or Living Plane if you seek to lock out all lands of your opponents together with Linvala, Keeper of Silence
Cyclonic Rift seems fine but could also be a win-more card. I presume you would cast this very late in the game and only as an emergency for 2 CMC. Hence, you can ask yourself if this card is really needed to win or if you perhaps would rather have another card that helps to set you up in the early game. I.e. Sylvan Tutor / Fauna Shaman ect...
I hope this was insightful to you. And no, I am not playing Derevi myself ;) But I do actually play a lot against it.

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