Sapphire Medallion Discussion

Maybe it's a daring idea but why not try to build a Tromokratis voltron deck? He is bulky and could easily deal 21 commander damage if you equip him with the right gear.
Play a lot of mana-rocks to get him out as early as possible like Lotus Bloom, Thran Dynamo, Caged Sun and Extraplanar Lens. Even Sapphire Medallion and High Tide help this strategy. Tromokratis wants to be blocked but that would be a set back for your gameplan so evasion is your friend. Archetype of Imagination could help your commander hit face for example.
If you go the voltron route I would definitely play these equipments:
- Swiftfoot Boots
- Lightning Greaves
- Eldrazi Conscription
- Argentum Armor
- Ronin Warclub
- Grafted Exoskeleton
Each Mirrodin sword would be an auto include but could maybe be to expensive to buy but I would at least try to fit in Sword of Feast and Famine.
Since you're in blue there are a lot of ways to search for artifacts.
And last of I would play some disruptive spells to ensure you're not overwhelmed by other tempo decks that tend to go wide like:
I love mono colored decks in EDH since they play the toughest game but excel at one main goal. It's hard to make them work against those fancy multi colored decks and it could become a big investment but from one mono-colored EDH player to another, it's worth it! +1

Hey, Nekusar is strong with wheel effects therefore I would play 8-10 mana rocks depending on budget with 36-38x lands to take advantage of wheels.
Using more rocks is good with control because then you can play more than one control spell per turn. This is especially important when playing wheels because then you can use mana from these rocks to play more cards per turn that you just drew from the wheel. A wheel also let you discard your hand if you draw too many rocks.

Hey ShreddyBass! Thank you for your feedback! Yes, sorry, I guess it was budget but I've done some upgrades since first posting the deck -- I'll make sure to change that or add budget alternatives in the description. I would recommend if you're playing against precons take out some of the removal and control in exchange for cheap draw spells. You could also do merfolk or clone (shapeshifter) tribal if that interests you! Many merfolk give evasion bonuses (which could help our commander be more effective) and clones sort of 'mimic' our opponents power level which always makes the game more fun.
Here is what I would do if I wanted to do clone tribal on a budget, for example:
Out:Back to Basics, All Is Dust, Bribery, Caged Sun, Cyclonic Rift, Memnarch, Reliquary Tower, Rhystic Study, Sapphire Medallion, Sculpting Steel, Thassa, God of the Sea, Vedalken Shackles, Wurmcoil Engine

@NV_1980 I have considered running Extraplanar Lens a few times; I think the main thing keeping me from it is that I don't run enough counterspells to protect it, and if it get's destroyed it sets me really far back. I might test it in the future, since the mana doubling is a lot more desirable than something like Sapphire Medallion, but the associated risk is also much higher.
I'm not a fan of Wash Out in multiplayer, but Inundate is a cool card I've never seen before. My main issues with Inundate is it's 6 mana and sorcery speed; I'd rather play something along the lines of AEtherize since it allows me to keep my options open instead of tapping out for a board wipe. I've also though about playing Ixidron since it is more permanent 'removal' than the bounce board wipes and also deals with commanders handily. The main reason I'm not playing any of these cards though is that the deck doesn't really feel like it needs more board wipes, so I'm content with the ones I have for the time being.

I feel like the Medallion cycle deserves a spot on this list.

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?
