Padeem, Consul of Innovation Discussion

Some cards I definitely want to think about putting in and looking to see if I have copies of

Cards I think I'm willing to cull:

I will probably pull out Braids, Conjurer Adept too, albeit I've been itching to play her in something ever since I picked up a copy. On the fence about it because I can be.

Probably should add in some more draw too. Thinking Blue Sun's Zenith could fit in among other things

Neotrup on Synery prevents Combo?

Hexproof granted by Padeem, Consul of Innovation does not stop you from targeting Voltaic Construct, it only stops your opponent from targeting it. Shroud granted by Lightning Greaves would prevent you from targeting Voltaic Construct, if you needed to equip them to give haste, however, you can equip them to something else so you can target it again.

Also, Padeem, Consul of Innovation doesn't need Lightning Greaves if you have Mycosynth Lattice on the battlefield, as Padeem will grant himself hexproof, as he will be an Artifact.

nibsey on Synery prevents Combo?

I love the following synergy in an artifact heavy deck, especially if Mycosynth Lattice comes out too

Padeem, Consul of Innovation + Lightning Greaves

Does Padeem prevent Voltaic Construct interacting with Grim Monolith?

Karn, Silver Golem + Grim Monolith + Voltaic Construct

Therefore my combo above no longer works?

Many thanks, Nibsey

First of all thanks a lot for your insights!

Let me try to answer everything. Eldrazi Displacer is actually much better than I remembered (by the time OGW came out I was playing a clanky abzan deck made for the Emperor format that used it with Siege Rhino to kill everyone playing as the emperor!) and for some reason when I wrote this description I was thinking it said "exile... and bring it back tapped EoT." which would have prevented that infinite loop. In the meantime I realized that (I believe while looking at your own deck) but didn't update the description so far. Definitely that was something that I would have noticed while playing, but I didn't have the chance to test the deck properly so far.

As for Lightning Greaves + Padeem, Consul of Innovation, definitely worthy inclusions (the greaves to such an extent that I never bother including it in a maybeboard because I know they should be there) but I still didn't get my copies: Padeem because I could trade it with a friend who I know has one up for trade and greaves, because I have one or two decks with one copy in that I'm about to strip to pieces or repurpose, so I'm going to get one of those into this list in time. By the way, Padeem is a woman! I wouldn't have guessed it unless someone pointed it out on youtube at some point eheh. But back onto the deck itself, my problem at this point is to define what is relevant or not in this deck, and most times at my own lists I try to figure this out by cutting some autoincludes for other more doubtful cards, until I understand which one underperforms, so then I can bring in the proven overperformers. Since my playgroup is pretty casual, this is rarely a big handicap for me, and IMO is a great way to test some cards you are not so sure about. Say I'm in doubt between Hanna, Ship's Navigator and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer (which is not the case, at least before getting some games under my belt). Wouldn't they be kind of cannibalizing each other's function? I'd rather test both at the same time, than choose one over the other and never have the chance to properly compare nor test how they synergize between them, even if they were seemingly worse cards on their own. I know Padeem is going to be vital to keep me safe in many situations, and Greaves are always worth including except when shroud is an handicap because of auras and such, so these are cards that I know I want, but first I want to figure out for sure which ones I can live without.

You actually have another set of infinite combos in there that you could mention, Eldrazi Displacer goes infinite with either Krark-Clan Ironworks or Ashnod's Altar and Breya. Blink her to produce infinite thopters and mana, then sac and burn.

I see you have Padeem, Consul of Innovation in your maybeboard and I must say that I think he and Lightning Greaves should be auto includes in any Breya list. They protect each other so well and he draws you cards! I've had people scoop to those two cards hitting the board. What are you gonna do? Wait and hope to draw into a boardwipe while I finish setting up my combo?

Plus with you running Planar Bridge, you're going to want to protect your high mana sink artifacts as best you can.

Just my thoughts, aside from that I love the more creature based approach. +1!

Radmando on Grixis Improvise + Control

Played Grixis Control last FNM. Sideboard suggestion: Enjoyed Padeem, Consul of Innovation coming in for Game 2.

HeavenlyAxe on Chain Veil Teferi

Two cards I would like to suggest.

The first is Padeem, Consul of Innovation. Both effects I have found to be amazing, but I particularly enjoy the draw. The hex proof has won me games. His mana cost is a little high however so I understand why maybe not an include, but hes also a good drop when you have a good mana hand but will run out of gas.

The second and better card in my opinion is Dimensional Infiltrator. He's an alternate win-con that with the right hand can win turn one or two. Hes very cheap and can be activated at instant speed so near uninterruptible, and you have everything else he needs already in deck. So a one card switch. Oh and he has flash!!!

Would enjoy your thoughts!

Praetor's Grasp is interesting. I feel like it is a stellar answer to Food Chain builds, and it hurts many different combo decks while also allowing you to see any anomalies in the build whilst searching.

Arcane Denial to Delay feels weaker to me, but perhaps that's just me. I like that it draws you a card, and it works well with both Leovold, Emissary of Trest and Consecrated Sphinx.

Side thought: I was wondering the other day what makes Leo better than Notion Thief. Obviously, the cmc and the target abilities are major pros, but the pay-off from Thief seems astronomically better because the ability to draw a card still triggers (i.e. someone is playing a Padeem, Consul of Innovation, you get to draw an extra card). It would then operate as a pseudo Sphinx number 2 in a way.
