Padeem, Consul of Innovation Discussion

airbornezenith on Saheeli, The Gifted Value Beats

1 week ago

I run a Saheeli, the Gifted list with the same goal that is very consistent if you wanted to check it out. How does this deck usually play out?

I run a few X spells such Braingeyser and Mind Spring as they scale with Saheeli. Goblin Welder is cheaper than Trash for Treasure. It is also repeatable and can target other peoples graveyards. I think Scrap Trawler is better than Myr Retriever because it will give a similar effect to all of your artifacts so you are constantly cycling when something dies. Plus if a board wipe happens you will likely replace a few things that died earlier and be in a better position to rebuild.

Speaking of board wipes I would run Cyclonic Rift and All Is Dust. They can flat out win you the game and Saheeli can put her extra mana towards the overload cost.

Since you are running Mycosynth Lattice I would also run Darksteel Forge. It makes everything you have indestructible. Running that with Padeem, Consul of Innovation will give everything you have hexproof in addtion to indestructible.

It That Betrays is a great Mirage Mirror target. My playgroup tends to sacrifice lands first so getting 4 lands per turn from them is a hoot.

Do you get much use out of Storm the Vault? Its been a dead card in my hand evey game. I always already have the mana to drop an Eldrazi so it just seems like extra.

I almost forgot Master Transmuter can change out your Servos for Blightsteel Colossus or any other artifact you have. She can also do it in response to someone trying to kill an artifact. You can just flop it for something else in your hand in response and then drop it again the next turn.

I like the inclusion of Reality Shift. It is definitely going to find a home in my own deck.

Have fun playing! I think Saheeli is a lot better than people give her credit for.

TypicalTimmy I realise that they can just kill Electrostatic Gearhulk but most creatures that give hexproof don't even protect themselves i.e. Shalai, Voice of Plenty or Padeem, Consul of Innovation they are the week link so i think not having it with hexproof and just the damage makes it balanced.

DoctorCarrot love the idea of a bolas one i had not thought of him for some reason :S and as i had already thought of a Tezzeret one I will answer:

Ethirium GearHulk XBU

Artifact Creature


When~ enters the battlefield X target artifacts become 5/5 artifact creatures until the end of the turn.


Tried to make it on Tezzies recurring ability of making things 5/5.

Take your favourite film character and make a legendary creature card around them. Try to balance them they can be powerful but don't make it silly.

pjmistry on Artifact Midrange (POST ROTATION READY) BUDGET

I too have been trying to build an artifact deck and love the fact you're using Phylactery Lich! What are your thoughts on Phyrexian Scriptures and Curator's Ward? If it wasn't rotating out, I would also mention Padeem, Consul of Innovation. LOL Out of curiosity have you worked on a non-budget friendly version of this deck concept? If so, do you have it posted elsewhere in this Site? Would truly love to see your thoughts on that and use something like this at the next Store Championship! Thank you.

ToxicMoonlight I actually play a fair amount of infinite Mana combos in the deck already. A close friend of mine thinks I should actually cut down on a few of the combos and add more counter magic, but he is also a control player who either plays 100% control or no control.

Power Artifact plus either Basalt Monolith or Grim Monolith makes infinite colorless mana that I can use either with Blue Sun's Zenith, Stroke of Genius, or Staff of Domination to draw my deck, then loop Blue Sun's Zenith at my opponents to deck them or even use Gilded Lotus and Voltaic Key with Rings of Brighthearth to make infinite blue mana and steal every permanent on the board which usually causes my opponents to scoop. Rings of Brighthearth also has the ability to combo with Basalt Monolith to make infinite mana if you copy the untap trigger. So infinite mana definitely isn't an issue in the deck, it just seems to always be the consistency.

There are very few artifacts in my meta other than the fast mana rocks, so I may drop Padeem, Consul of Innovation back in as a way of protection and card draw. Plus it helps if I use Phyrexian Metamorph to copy him and give itself hexproof.

Oh! Well since your meta is more competitive, I understand how having a faster and more responsive deck would have a better chance of winning. If you need some more fast card draw, you could add a Serum Visions or Opt if you think the deck needs it. Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time are also very good draw spells if you think you'll be able to delve away your graveyard.

If you also want to add another infinite mana combo other than Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal you can run the Grand Architect + Pili-Pala combo or perhaps the Palinchron + Deadeye Navigator combo, but maybe that combo is too slow for your meta.

Have you considered putting in Baral, Chief of Compliance or Padeem, Consul of Innovation? Baral, Chief of Compliance seems like a good and cheap fit so you can get a discount on all of your instants and sorceries while getting card advantage, and Padeem, Consul of Innovation adds an extra layer of protection to all of your important spells. Seems pretty good to me!
