Thanks for looking at the mana. I'm not sure about it since I haven't played yet (and next get together is probably in a month or so), but I think you make a valid case with the tapped lands. I want to try out the new MDFCs and I found out i have the U/R and U/B duals lying around. I've swapped them and Interplanar Beacon for Temple of Deceit, Vivid Crag and Creeping Tar Pit. What others would you recommend cutting for more basics?
Perhaps you're right on the 3cmc artifacts too, even though I'd say commander's sphere is decent because it cycles for free when you don't need it anymore. I might add Rakdos Signet and cut Chromatic Lantern.
True that's a combo. I don't think I'll run it beause I don't have the cards currently interesting loop for sure though!
That play pattern appeals, so maybe I'll find room for it later. A bit of randomness like that can make games more fun
Beacon is in now :)
The idea with most artifacts is that they either ramp, proliferate or benefit from proliferation (see the section Card by Card). Which other cards do you feel are part of the subtheme but don't contribute?
If you're talking about Saheeli, Tezzeret and (now x2) Daretti: I think the Business Artifacts in the list (the chain veil, contagion clasp/engine and lithoform engine) are worth fetching / copying even just on their own, but maybe your idea is they don't do enough?
Let me know because I'm curious what you think on the topic, if you have suggestions to spice up the artifact theme I'd gladly hear them!

Manviz I try to fix the land and add some flip card that have land too, like Hagra Mauling Flip also I take out all of Temple of Deceit and about the cantrip I still figure it out what should I remove to add some Omen of the Sea

30 lands sounds good that’s 3 / guild. Do you mind if I take the Esper colors? I was thinking of both a midrange and a control build.

I think I understand a little bit, but I’m going in a different direction than you are.
Rather than punishing some mana bases, I would reward them in ways that benefit their archetypes.
Such as Temple of Deceit for UB decks Since they tend to be slower and the scry is more beneficial in these decks.
RW would get something like Battlefield Forge in this spot.
I do think you need one cycle (either shocks, checks or fast lands) that every color has access too. Then one additional land per color combo that benefits their role in the format.

Temples, Temple of Deceit et al. The Scy can actually be super useful, especially in control/late game decks that don't desperately need the untapped land early in the game.

Yeah, I'll just start on the manabase for now. It needs a lot of work. Gateway Plaza is absolute trash -- cut it. Crumbling Necropolis enters tapped but gives you the colors you need, and it's cheap. 3 color with mana costs as restrictive as Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God and Nicol Bolas are a serious pain in the ass with a budget -- to be honest I would just cut all four copies. If you want to keep them, you basically need to run fetchlands like Polluted Delta, shocks like Watery Grave, and filter lands like Sunken Ruins to get that .
I see you already have Sunken Hollow, the other battle land in your colors, Smoldering Marsh, shouldn't be too expensive. You can also try the cycle of reveal lands, Choked Estuary and Foreboding Ruins. You can also try the temple cycle, Temple of Deceit, Temple of Malice, and Temple of Epiphany. If you have to, you can also resort to the "enters tapped you gain 1 life" dual lands like Dismal Backwater.
