Caged Sun Discussion

Maybe it's a daring idea but why not try to build a Tromokratis voltron deck? He is bulky and could easily deal 21 commander damage if you equip him with the right gear.
Play a lot of mana-rocks to get him out as early as possible like Lotus Bloom, Thran Dynamo, Caged Sun and Extraplanar Lens. Even Sapphire Medallion and High Tide help this strategy. Tromokratis wants to be blocked but that would be a set back for your gameplan so evasion is your friend. Archetype of Imagination could help your commander hit face for example.
If you go the voltron route I would definitely play these equipments:
- Swiftfoot Boots
- Lightning Greaves
- Eldrazi Conscription
- Argentum Armor
- Ronin Warclub
- Grafted Exoskeleton
Each Mirrodin sword would be an auto include but could maybe be to expensive to buy but I would at least try to fit in Sword of Feast and Famine.
Since you're in blue there are a lot of ways to search for artifacts.
And last of I would play some disruptive spells to ensure you're not overwhelmed by other tempo decks that tend to go wide like:
I love mono colored decks in EDH since they play the toughest game but excel at one main goal. It's hard to make them work against those fancy multi colored decks and it could become a big investment but from one mono-colored EDH player to another, it's worth it! +1

In commander it doesn't help cast as many spells as Caged Sun and pumps the same in decks that run it... doesn't draw as many cards as you could with Mind's Eye... doesn't pump as well a lot of cards that are cheaper than it... so yeah it does a lot of things, but none of them well is a great assessment.
It will be a nice additional play in decks that need to increase those types of effects... colorless card draw is always playable in the format. But unless you know you are playing super friends the walker part is kind of meh since they aren't played heavily in commander.

There's pretty much just the one way to build Zada :D
It's nice because the vast majority of the deck is cheap. The only thing you could add that isn't budget are things like big-time staples that fit every deck (Wheel of Fortune, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Caged Sun, etc.)
Check out my Zada deck Zadonkadonk -- ($60 Budget Zada Aggro) if you feel so inclined. It looks a lot like all the rest but I must say it's quite savage for its budget!

I haven't had a game of Commander since August... :|
There's been little interested in Commander at my LGS during FNMs the past few months. I intended to make the switch last month, but I can't test new cards if I can't get a game going...
I'll update the deck by the end of this month. Games or no games.
Ancient Tomb was in the deck before. It was cut some months after Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx was added. I didn't need two lands that produce more than one mana and I needed space for the cycling lands. I'm actively trying to make Nykthos work well in the deck. If I ever get fed up with trying to build devotion, I'd reconsider Ancient Tomb.
Reliquary Tower isn't part of the deck officially, and still won't be after the Balan swap. If the swap doesn't work out the way I hope it will, it sinply won't happen and Reliquary Tower will be removed from the Maybeboard.

Questions for post-Balan, Wandering Knight switch! I see you are still on the Sram, tsk tsk! =P
Why not keep Caged Sun in the 99? Did the deck get too tight that it had to get cut from adding cards?
Would you consider running Ancient Tomb?
What sleeves do you use for you commander deck? Dragon shields, kmcs, ultra pro, etc?
