Sapphire Medallion Discussion
21 hours ago
will Sapphire Medallion reduce my X cost on blue spells?for example if i have 4 Island and a Sapphire Medallioncan i then cast a Braingeyser on X 3 and tap all 4 lands or, can i cast it on X 2 and tap only 3 lands?

I already have Kindred Discovery in my maybeboard, I just don't know what it should replace. Sphinx of Jwar Isle ios a bit lackluster, since I can only look at the card and not cast it, like with Future Sight.
Conundrum Sphinx is also a bit weak IMO, since I don't have that many ways of knowing what's on top of my library and the low cost is insignificant when Unesh lowers the mana cost of all my sphinxes by 2.
Horizon Scholar is also a bit meh, since I'll be getting so many cards anyway.
And finally, Urza's Incubator is actually almost useless in this deck since I have Unesh to lower the cost of my cards by 2, Herald’s Horn to lower by 1, and Sapphire Medallion to lower them by another 1 giving me all the cost reduction I'll ever need.

Thanks for the upvote on my Arjun deck!
I have a few suggestions you may want to consider:
Baral, Chief of Compliance, and Arcane Melee both provide cost reductions for your spells. Sapphire Medallion would do much more work for you than Sky Diamond. Baral also turns all of your counter spells into cantrips.
Being mono coloured, you don't need fixing, but Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse would help thin your deck along with the Myriad Landscape you already have. Any of the Bant, Esper, or Grixis panoramas would also help with this.
Memory Erosion and Startled Awake can also help with the milling theme. However, I caution against focusing too much on that. People don't like being milled and will often choose to deal with it by removing you from the game.

Welcome to Mono Blue Talrand Control. I will first recommend you check out the following link for some deck ideas... Talrand
To answer your description question, you don't want counterspells that give you opponents an option, as they will always choose what benefits them most. Grip of Amnesia is a no go. Dream Fracture is fine.
Runechanter's Pike can be a win condition.
You are going to want some more cantrips like Preordain to build your army quickly. Misdirection is a great card when you're tapped out to protect Talrand, it has saved me more times than I can count.
My deck Tisk Tisk Talrand is a highly tuned competitive deck you could take a look at to get some more ideas of ramp, protection, control, card draw, etc....
Since you are a budget player and are not trying to counter everything, another good deck to look at is Bennie and the Jets, one creature in edh? this will be fun and Talrand and His Minions of Flying Doom
If you want more suggestions about specific cards to put in or take out, let me know. All the best!

Hey, I think monocolored decks always profit greatly from the medallions. Did you consider a Sapphire Medallion?

mortilus, I would prefer to keep my creatures on the field, I forgot about Sapphire Medallion, I cut Counterbalance for budgetary concerns, and I've been meaning to add Summary Dismissal to the list for a while now. thanks for the suggestions
