There are some better budget lands than the ones you are currently running. I've put parentheses around some that aren't quite as cheap and bolded the ones that are definitely in your price range.

Painlands: Llanowar Wastes, (Karplusan Forest)

Check lands: Dragonskull Summit, Rootbound Crag, (Woodland Cemetery)

MDFC lands: Cragcrown Pathway  Flip, (Blightstep Pathway  Flip), (Darkbore Pathway  Flip)

Scry lands: Temple of Malady, Temple of Malice, Temple of Abandon

mobizque, After playing the deck for some time I must say you are very right about the bolt :)

Will have to try Temple of Abandon , could help the early game when you don't have a Commune with Dinosaurs

Hey, you're welcome.

The Thriving lands and Vivid lands should be replaced before the Scry lands. I would also replace the Scry lands, but they're better than Thriving and Vivids. I'm not a fan of Scry lands; the scry 1 is very overrated. I think color fixing is more important to have with lands especially with five colors on a budget. On a budget Tri lands are worth ETB tapped because they can make one of three colors and having access to a possible third color repeatedly is more helpful than a single time scry 1. Overall, the land cuts to consider are all the Thriving lands, Vivid lands and Scry lands; keep the Tri lands.

Tri lands give you more options, more consistent to have a land that can make green or red. That's important since these colors you want in the early game more than other colors. Frontier Bivouac , Jungle Shrine and Savage Lands are Tri lands that can make green and red. Only Temple of Abandon can do this out of the Scry lands.

As far as cuts to consider to add more ramp:

Dragons don't need the pump from Crucible and Kolaghan, they're already big and flying. The interaction with Amulet with lands that ETB tapped is nice, but I think it would be better as an actual ramp spell.

Hey, well done on your first real deck. On less than $50 budget you have good card sense :)

Because of low budget all my card suggestions will be $1 or less each.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 4x Mountain
  • 2x Forest
  • Ivy Elemental
  • Krakilin
  • Veteran Explorer
  • Llanowar Visionary
  • Gelatinous Genesis
  • Dictate of Karametra
  • Keeper of Progenitus
  • Boundless Realms

Good luck with your deck.

Davinoth on Marisi's Marching Band [Goad EDH]

     Omniscience_is_life: Thanks so much for the Upvote and great suggestions! Your comment (particularly the linked "Annoying pieces of shit" bit) gave me a good chuckle haha! =)

     Have to agree with your opinion on Bretagard Stronghold ! I've played it once and it was particularly underwhelming. I'll likely replace with another basic or Temple of Abandon .

     I had been considering Farseek & Curse of Opulence , though I was planning to cut Road of Return and keep Skyshroud Claim instead. Being that Marisi costs four though, SS Claim & Exp Veg do conflict with a tempo draw and is probably a better plan.

     I really love Shamanic Revelation , but you're probably right here, too. I have one Sylvan Library , but I'm not super keen to pull it from the deck it's in or to go and buy another haha! Probably Return of the Wildspeaker is the right direction. :)

     Planning to cut Prey Upon for Pit Fight . At least then I can target my own creatures with Brash Taunter & Stuffy Doll .

     Again - great suggestions! Thank you!

Hmmm... is this really a Naya deck? You have one red card and one hybrid card, which can just be played monogreen. If you swapped Fireball out for Hurricane , the whole deck could be green and make your mana production a lot easier!

Even if you like being able to channel lots of mana into a fireball, you could drop the Jungle Shrines for something like Temple of Abandon and just have the deck be /.

Narueled, I might be wrong. It really depends on how you want to win. I think the bolt will give you a few extra wins in cases where three points of burn is all you need, but Reckless Rage helps your deck do what it likes to do: piss off big dinos and clear the way for an attack.

For the lands, your average cmc is so high that--though it sucks to drop action cards--you might have more consistency with an extra land. Speaking of, the scry from Temple of Abandon might help too, particularly on turn 1 when you don't have your most important big plays. Your momentum really kicks in turn 2. Again, That increases the cost. I want to build a gruul deck in paper (werewolves or dinosaurs), but the cost of the mana base has deterred me so far.

Hey, nice first budget version of Gishath. Good job on the win.

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Several of these cards are in Commander Legends, the new Magic set just released. The prices of these cards will be decreasing.

Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.
