I am deciding to build a 5 color deck that is minimal creatures and more control or tempo. I am looking for the best possible land combination. So i am picking brains. can someone help me come up with the best land base possible for a 5 color modern deck? thnx. Oh and i don't need to hear how stupid my idea is or any of that. i just want to see good solid ideas. Please and thanks.

Well the mana base is obviously going to depend on what cards you are playing in the deck. What colours do you need early, what colours are you heavy in, what colour do you not care if you do not draw until turn 6-7 etc can not be determined with out an actual deck.

i would run reflecting pool with some vivid lands. maybe black and blue vivid. reflectingpool and then one of each duelland tied to blue with scalding tarnished and misty for sac lands. you are going to get hose by land destruction make sure you work in a few basics and run some land recursion. you can run life of loom and some of the cards that you can play from the yard by discarding land.

In fact, before you build your mana base, I'd go ahead and pick out what cards you want to run. Maybe you can cut a 5th color, or at least find what colors your deepest in.
