If Mox Diamond would enter the battlefield, you may discard a land card instead. If you do, put Mox Diamond onto the battlefield. If you don't, put it into its owner's graveyard.

Lilbrudder: I do have a budget, astonishingly: it's why I also don't have a Plateau in the deck. The foiling has occurred very slowly and over time, and some of the most expensive cards have been gifts. In answer, yes, it's a Blasphemous Act to sell my foils XD
I do need to pick up a Plateau and a Mox Diamond for this deck. But given that I don't have them and I DO have a Mox Opal (the masterpiece no less), is it playable with a total of 27 artifacts (my current set, plus 3 artifact lands and the Mox)? Given that most of those artifacts are CMC 2 or less...

n0bunga: Currently I have Mana Crypt in there, so that helps. I don't like Chrome Mox in this deck even though I own one (the card disadvantage hurts too much, and the deck is too colorless), and I can't afford Mox Diamond.

Lilbrudder: I can't afford Grim Monolith or Mox Diamond I'm afraid - this Mox Opal is a very specific and advantageous trade. I probably should put in Fellwar Stone, but I'm worried that too few of my opponents will be playing W and/or R. I'm also not very willing to go below 35 lands in a deck with a 5C commander. So I'm somewhat torn...

Also, Trinket Mage with only one target to tutor for is awfully weak. It's a great card but you need some sort of toolbox to make it relevant in any stages of the game. For example Pithing Needle, Engineered Explosives (nice with Academy Ruins and Crop Rotation/Sylvan Scrying to tutor for it, also makes a good pile for Intuition with Crucible of Worlds/Academy Ruins/Engineered Explosives or Regrowth), Aether Spellbomb or some mana rocks such as Mana Vault, Voltaic Key, Lotus Petal, Chrome Mox and a bit more expensive Mana Crypt, Mox Opal, Mox Diamond.
I wouldn't recommend lands like Simic Growth Chamber, because they are very much fun for the first person, who happens to have a Strip Mine, Wasteland or any other land removals in the early game and it sets you back like 3 turns. It happened so often and recently I've not seen anyone play these lands anymore because they are so risky. If you combine them with Amulet of Vigor (also a target for Trinket Mage) they are good, but alone they suck.

Hey dude, huge fan of the deck! Saw it on reddit, i really love the high tide package as well.
I would have to agree with Silber here, why not sub out Lotus Petal for Mox Diamond? I also think Wood Elves looks a bit weak here, maybe swap it out for Gamble. I understand it gives you a spot on the curve for Birthing Pod, but I'd rather have a Deceiver Exarch or Eternal Witness or recruiter 9.9/10 times. If you need ramp with GSZ, you have other options as well, even if they dont net you mana that turn.
I'm also not huge on Treasure Cruise. I mean its amazing, but does this really want to have to exile your gy and tap out for 3 cards? I like Dig Through Time a lot more (i see its included already), just because its an instant and gives you mana to interact on your opps' turns. Cruise is good, but in my experience, it can be challenging to fill up that graveyard enough. What do you think of Crop Rotation in here? boseiju seems really good with your big spells, and even cavern of souls could be decent. It might be nice to tutor up that protection.
Anyways, huge fan of the deck! I play rafiq in cedh, so its nice to see someone else with a tier 2 general trying to rep it out there. I really think we have the stuff it takes to compete, theres just not a lot of people who are still working on midrange decks like this in the format.

maybe take a page out of legacy and add Mox Diamond. Turn 1 Bob sounds great!

So where do rocks like Mox Diamond, Lion's Eye Diamond, and Chrome Mox fit into things? Is it just Wizard's attempt to re-balance something like a Mox Pearl or Black Lotus by providing an additional negative cost?
