Idyllic Tutor Discussion

Just so you know Idyllic Tutor doesn't have anything to tutor for mainboard. Also, you tagged the deck as WB (Orzhov) instead of UW (Azorius). Ghostly Prison would probably be good for this kind of deck and I don't know how helpful Karn will be for you.

I think Dromoka's Command would be hard for you to resolve since ideally you only want things to be fighting your knight, and with your available resources in the deck it's hard to protect him, short of just making sure he's out of Lightning Bolt range - but in a world with Path to Exile, and Fatal Push, it could be hard to keep him on the board long enough to benefit.
I'd like to see more of your Idyllic Tutor in the main and have fewer numbers of enchantments, but have a wider variety.

I would consider Kederekt Parasite, his damage might be inconsequential once the angels/dragons/demons start attacking.
Blade of Selves for sure, only equips one creature, and the 4 is pretty high cmc for equip, plus it doesn't allow Kaalia of the Vast to multi-tigger, so not necessary. Can't equip it either during the attack, so only really myriads a creature that's survived a round or 2, which means it isn't a big enough threat probably that it matters to anyone anyway.
Victory's Herald maybe, he's good, CMC 6 for a 4/4 isn't that great, but his Lifelink is nice, it doesn't trigger off of a Kaalia of the Vast drop in though, so just for that reason could consider cutting him, but then again the next turn lifelink is appetizing. Gisela, the Broken Blade instead? or Baneslayer Angel
Not sure what you mean about Master of Cruelties? He is my #1 creature, I always Vampiric Tutor or Demonic Tutor. Kaalia of the Vast + Master of Cruelties (unblocked) = Eliminate Opponent. Not sure if you confused on this guy, but errata ruling is pretty clear.
4/15/2013 An ability that triggers when something attacks and isnt blocked triggers in the declare blockers step after blockers are declared if (1) that creature is attacking and (2) no creatures are declared to block it. It will trigger even if that creature was put onto the battlefield attacking rather than having been declared as an attacker in the declare attackers step.

One of my friends runs Medomai as their commander and it's one of my favorite decks to play with and against. I have a few suggestions to better your deck.
You have two Etherium Sculptors
Who doesn't like to play Telepathy.
I know these may not be the most budget friendly suggestions but I'm sure you can find some nice things with effects similar to the cards mentioned..
also, +1 because <3 Medomai

Idyllic Tutor Actually isnt that bad of an Idea. It'd definitely help to get some winning combos out; however, I've never been a big fan of Vampiric Tutor because of it goes on top rather than In hand. It Is a good card though, so adding it might be a good idea, eveb if It's just in the sideboard. Two life isnt anything when comparing it to what I've seen this deck do.
In response to Ob Nixilis Reignited I just feel like he wouldn't fit well within the deck. I've ran him in some other decks and I've never been a big fan.
Cliffhaven Vampire and Defiant Bloodlord are cards that would totally be worth adding into the deck! It'd definitely allow me to focus more on the combo. A Demonic Tutor wouldn't hurt either. Having that extra tutor never hurts.
Thank you all for the suggestions. I'll look into making so adjustments. The feed back helps tremendously.

I agree. Add in No Mercy.
If you are playing Maralen of the Mornsong, along with the necessary Stranglehold to keep it one sided, you have no issue with tutors and combo. You should go all the way with this and play Vampiric Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, and Idyllic Tutor. Maybe add in some Transmute cards for extra tutoring, since these are often budget friendly tutor effects. Brainspoil gets you Starfield of Nyx, Sphere of Safety, Norn's Annex, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs (why aren't you running this?), and Master of Cruelties. Dimir House Guard gets you a ton of stuff, most importantly including Stranglehold, but could also get Opalescence. Dimir Machinations gets you any number of cards, most importantly including Maralen of the Mornsong, Price of Glory, and Solitary Confinement. Both Shred Memory and Netherborn Phalanx could potentially tutor up some good stuff. Add in some Group Slug enchantments for continuous pings, or some combo kill, and you have a lockout recipe. Any of the Gods in would also make nice wincons that are tutorable with any of the above tutors. If you are going strong on enchantments, both Opalescence and Starfield of Nyx turn out to be good wincons all by themselves. If you have that many enchantments, Replenish provides protection against an enchantment board wipe.
I like all the Freeze elements, it makes this into a scary Stax style taxation deck. If you are going that direction, why not add in the three best Stax pieces, Parallax Wave, Smokestack, and Tangle Wire? Lethal Vapors, Parallax Wave, and Starfield of Nyx would create a recurring board wipe for creatures, and even as a one shot, both Tangle Wire and Parallax Wave would fit in here nicely.
I also suggest thinking about lowering your curve. The cards in your list that are the highest CMC are actually not adding much to your major strategy. Trim them to make room for more efficient pieces, more tutors, and more cards that exploit the Stax/Tax theme. Also, you should think about running more ramp in the form of mana rocks. My experience is that both Stax and Pillow Fort want a curve with an average CMC somewhere around 2.5, and these archetypes also want a lot of mana rocks to power out early defensive plays. You only run two ramp cards, and your average CMC is 3.65, with a curve that tops out at 9! You will probably be waiting until turn 15 or so to get out Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Blazing Archon. Waiting that long for your defense means that it is unlikely to be doing anything for you.
Anyway, this is a very interesting deck, and a very different take on Queen Marchesa than most. I will be watching you develop it with great interest.

Idyllic Tutor can find Doubling Season, same with Enlightened Tutor but also hits Chain Veil. Snapcaster Mage is good to reuse tutors or removal. Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage have solid emblems. I'd dump Freyalise, Garruk Wildspeaker and Ashiok as they don't really synergize. Fountain Watch protects Doubling Season and Chain Veil. The only Jace you really need is Unraveler, the goal should be to accumulate emblems. Liliana Vess is good for tutoring also.
Nice build, just needs a little refining. +1
