Quote from NavyJoeI play 5 Color Control online and rarely have mana issues. I don't have access to Evetide yet, so bare with the mana base:

4 Reflecting Pool3 Vivid Grove3 Vivid Marsh1 Vivid Crag1 Vivid Meadows1 Vivid Creek3 U/W Filter Land2 R/B Filter Land3 R/G Filter Land3 G/W Filter Land
The rest of the deck runs pretty much all the cards you listed minus Fulminator (moved him to the sb). It looks similiar to the Commandments deck, but it's alittle different. I use a Reveillark engine also. I use a card that most people disagree with, but to me, it's the better overall choice.
You really only have 2 choices in a deck that runs 0 basic lands. You have Fertile Ground and Recross the Paths. Now I chose the RtP for various reasons:
1. With Fulminator and Cryptic Command both heavily played in the format, I don't want to get 2 for 1d.
2. With the exception of Ponder, Firespout, and RtP everything in the deck is CC of 4 or higher. I have a good chance at winning the Clash.
3. You have to get to 6 mana for Austere quick.
Those are the reasons I run RtP over FG. If you'd like I can post a decklist.

Nothing amazing, but the synergy is there. Plays like an iffy Doran Rock deck, because that's pretty much what it is!
