Padeem, Consul of Innovation Discussion

Hey there! Looks like a sweet deck!

First of all, I'd recommend adding a few more cheap artifact creatures so you can tutor with Arcum easier - Myr Retriever, Silver Myr, Hedron Crawler, Manakin, and Myr Sire are all great for this. Some of them also count as ramp as well.

As for tutors, Tezzeret the Seeker , Whir of Invention, and Kuldotha Forgemaster are all solid ones.

Finally, some generally good cards that I'd recommend adding include Seat of the Synod, Cyclonic Rift, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Voltaic Key, Buried Ruin, Darksteel Citadel, Sensei's Divining Top, Thousand-Year Elixir, Counterspell, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, and Staff of Domination.

Hope this helps!

For starters, if you're playing blue and want cards you play Consecrated Sphinx. Your commander's only text could be "every time there's a sphinx destroy it" and you'd still run Consecrated Sphinx, it's that good.

Thirst for Knowledge and Compulsive Research are your best value straight draw spells in the vein of Divination and Brilliant Plan.

If you're running Leonin Abunas you can straight upgrade to Padeem, Consul of Innovation or run both if you really find the effect helpful. Spellskite has a similar function and can be flashed in.

Bident of Thassa and Thopter Spy Network are both worthy of consideration if you like Thieving Magpie.

This deck is pretty light on recursion. I find Memory Jar is an absolute monster, but I dunno if Junk Diver and Hanna are gonna cut it. Something to consider if you ever find yourself running more cards that could bring it or the cards it pitches back from the graveyard.

In addition to the comments above, I still think that Padeem, Consul of Innovation is a great card in an artifacts deck. Protecting all your stuff and the extra card draw is all very relevant. In addition, Board the Weatherlight is an AMAZING dig spell in this deck. Nearly every card is a target for it, and digging that deep for only two mana is amazing. I would suggest dropping green and adding blue, and also possibly red as well.

Padeem, Consul of Innovation can protect your artifacts. Also, I feel that Astral Cornucopia can help you out with mana

Actually after trying your deck, I think it's an obligatory card, you should run 3 as you don't really have any removal (I tried 3 and it's overly powerfull against aggro, especially against cats in standard)

I see you've edited the deck, I can't say I aggree with the Gilded Lotus even if I know it must be hard not to put a beautiful foiled one into the deck.

Orazca Relic is kind of redundant with Powerstone Shard and Treasure Map  Flip, I think you should remove them all. You should also replace all 3 Howling Golem for 3 Foundry Inspector.

I added good cards that work very well with the deck : Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Verix Bladewing, Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp and The Locust God. Just one of each (and minus the 2 Squee, the Immortal as it's weak and mana expensive anyway. 3 Helm of the Host was very good, equiping The Locust God kind of wins you the game. A third Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain is also kind of good as it's the core of the deck. All those legendary creatures, outside of their powerful effect are here to maximise your chances of easily casting Jaya's Immolating Inferno.

You don't have any turn 1 exept Opt, you should run at least 2 Hope of Ghirapur.

I know this decklist is actually your owned cards but it definetely has potential so you should just proxy those up. I will keep playing and working on it anyway.

Just so you know, if something is "on a stick", that means it is a Creature eg. Ravenous Chupacabra is removal on a stick.

I believe the saying comes from the film Wolf Creek.

You are trying to run five colours with a mana base that just doesn't support them.

Some of your Creatures use or to cast. You just won't be able to keep squeezing Aether Hub to make that mana.

If you use Thran Temporal Gateway to put Zacama, Primal Calamity on the field you aren't casting it, so you won't get to untap lands.

It's cost must be paid in order for it to be cast.

You need a plan to get Creatures on the field if you don't have Thran Temporal Gateway on there.

With so many expensive Creatures, and only 23 lands, I was in the position where I couldn't get any Creatures on the field.

Thran Temporal Gateway also comes out quite late, so it's easy for you to be overrun before it does.

Lifelink might help with this.

White has good removal at the moment. Seal Away, Thopter Arrest, Ixalan's Binding, and Cast Out.

It would be useful to have a card that destroys or Exiles Enchantments, as I locked down your Thran Temporal Gateway with Ixalan's Binding.

Padeem, Consul of Innovation doesn't always come to hand.

The only removal you have in your Mainboard is Sweltering Suns, and it doesn't hit big Creatures.

I know that's a lot to take in..

The best thing to focus on is getting this deck down to three colours, and giving it some early game.

You have enough fixing, consider going into blue for cards like Padeem, Consul of Innovation and maybe Saheeli's Artistry.
