Sapphire Medallion Discussion

theindigoeffect on Do you Miz me?

1 week ago

Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora for cheap and efficient card-draw engines. They would draw less hate than Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, and since you only have two creatures in your deck, they would allow you to draw more cards than Skullclamp.

Mana Crypt and Ancient Tomb for mana acceleration.

Mizzix's Mastery for graveyard recursion.

Izzet Guildgate and Temple of Epiphany always come in tapped: I would try to find replacements for those, if possible.

Do you have enough land to justify Doubling Cube?

Do you have enough card-draw to justify Thought Vessel?

With a counterspell to back it up, you can play Impending Disaster.

Ruination is a good way of getting rid of those annoying lands, and if your opponents are running four colors or more, it could potentially take out everything. It blows up annoying stuff like Boseiju, Who Shelters All, which could also be a great inclusion in your deck.

Land Equilibrium would be great, since your opponents will probably be playing more lands than you.

Voltaic Key and Unwinding Clock untap artifacts like Sol Ring and Gilded Lotus so you can tap them again for even more mana.

Voracious Reader  Flip makes instant and sorcery spells cost 1 less colorless mana. Sapphire Medallion and Ruby Medallion functions similarly.

Darksteel Ingot, Khalni Gem and Manalith for color-fixing artifacts.

Mr.Fblthp on Rashmi, Storm of Eternity

I made a Rashmi Deck too but i didn't think of using Aetherflux Reservoir as a win con, im gonna jam it in when I get chance. You should try using Whir of Invention to tutor for it as its instant speed and puts it directly into play. With Sapphire Medallion and Paradise Mantle you can double up the mana spent because it has improvise.

Winterblast on Augustin's $t4ks

dlamars I had it in the deck in the beginning, before I owned a Land Equilibrium, then I played them both and then I cut ward of bones. One problem is that it allows the opponents to have one more of every type than you have, while land equilibrium doesn't. If I have 0 lands with land equilibrium, no one can play a land until I do (the great part is, that according to the ruling you can't play the land and use the mana before sacrificing it). Another problem is that I usually have more of every other permanent type than everyone else, so apart from limiting the land supply the effects of ward of bones have often been completely useless.

youngfischer I play both, inkmoth and blinkmoth. Inkmoth is great with elspeth and jitte and blinkmoth is just a useful flying blocker, returning with Crucible of Worlds.

I've just bought Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and I probably put him in the deck as soon as the order arrives. Not sure what to cut for it though...maybe Cataclysm because ugin is a great mass removal too, or Words of Wind (although this helps a lot with removing certain pieces that might prevent my own plays while slowing down the opponents, for example bouncing a Cursed Totem or Ensnaring Bridge for one action then playing it again), or Sapphire Medallion because I have already reduced the coloured spells very much.

Remove Spreading Seas, Always Watching ,Aquitect's Will and Burnished Hart.

Trade your Fumigate for a Dusk or Fell the Mighty or Retribution of the Meek or Solar Tide.

Drowner of Secrets + Intruder Alarm + Stonybrook Schoolmaster is a combo you could consider. Altar of the Brood also fits in.By using Merrow Reejerey to untap an Azorius Chancery you can achieve infinite mana through a Cloudstone Curio if you have 2 merfolks with cmc = 1 (or cost reducing), so you might want to consider Kefnet's Monument and Sapphire Medallion.Cloudstone Curio would also work for infinite tokens and even infinite mana if you use +Paradox Engine untaps your merfolk and mana rocks whenever you cast a spell. Spell Burst can lock everyone if you manage to generate in mana rocks/creatures, for instance.

+High Tide doubles up your mana for a turn

+Scourge of Fleets

+Inundate

Maybe Blustersquall, maybe Breaking Wave, maybe Faces of the Past (this one combos with Schoolmaster + Altar of Dementia/Blasting Station).

Maybe Retreat to Coralhelm + Walking Atlas + Oboro Breezecaller (infinite mana with a land that taps for 2 mana or simply infinite landfall for Altar of the Brood)

Maybe consider Blue Sun's Zenith since with infinite mana you can draw every card of your deck or force someone to deck out.

Maybe Winter Orb since your average CMC is so low and you'll have ways of untapping stuff (it'll lock everyone else out)

This is not meant for any offense to you, but anyone with a semi decent commander deck would crush this, you could probably stand with a switching of commanders, look up a few and see which ones you like, then you could use Stormtide Leviathan for heavy hitting, Mulldrifter is just good fore card draw, Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, and Arcanis the Omnipotent is a must have as well. Counterspell is just one of the best cards ever printed for blue, Cyclonic Rift, Sol Ring should be in every single deck no matter what, no exceptions, Disallow is also just strictly good, Brainstorm and Ponder are also amazing cards that belong in every blue deck, Sapphire Medallion, Blue Sun's Zenith, Rhystic Study is amazing card draw, Thought Vessel is pretty good, Dissolve, Clever Impersonator, Jace's Sanctum, Dismiss, Metallurgic Summonings, Void Shatter, Treasure Cruise it may not seem it but its a very good card, even got restricted in Standard because of it, Reality Shift, Thing in the Ice  Flip, Venser, Shaper Savant, High Tide, Mana Leak

Could use more mana rocks since Melek is pretty expensive and it's gonna get pretty hard to cast him if he gets removed a couple of times. I suggest Thran Dynamo, Fire Diamond, Sky Diamond, Izzet Keyrune and Sapphire Medallion for starters. Arcane Melee is a little risky, but should be a lot of fun too.

Also adding more cards that reward you for slinging spells is key (i.e. Talrand, Sky Summoner, Guttersnipe, Mercurial Geists, Thing in the Ice  Flip, Niblis of Frost, Young Pyromancer, Wee Dragonauts, Thermo-Alchemist). Also Storm cards.

Work on finding a clear wincon too, it wasn't really apparent to me, but clear things up if there is one at the moment plox.
