Sky Diamond Discussion

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.

Disallow, Arcane Denial, Baral's Expertise, and Insidious Will offer some more good counters and other control.

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.

Am I correct in inferring that your meta has other fast combo decks and that you are not struggling against the other 2017 Commander decks? What combo decks are you losing against? I play a couple of top end combo decks (when I can find suitable opponents). I was hoping to make this deck less efficient than those decks so as not to overwhelm the competition. There are usually no combo decks. A lot of my games are against upgraded Commander 2107 decks.

I was hoping to build a combo/control deck that managed the table and drew the combo cards. I was already playing Arcanis the Omnipotent. In light of that which three of these would you cut?Galecaster Colossus, Marchesa, the Black Rose, Master of Waves, Puppeteer Clique, Snapcaster Mage, Sower of Temptation, Vindictive Lich and Glen Elendra Archmage?

You still have Sky Diamond in your deck list.

What are your thoughts on these cards?

  1. Chrome Mox to replace Sky Diamond.

  2. Enlightened Tutor

  3. Urza's Incubator in addition or to replace Herald’s Horn. Has the 26 wizards proven to be enough of a draw source or are you just using Herald's Horn as an inferior version of Urza's Incubator? I am playing 29 wizards which may not be enough of a difference if you are not seeing a lot of draw triggers.

  4. Necropotence to replace Phyrexian Arena

  5. Would you increase your counterspells from three to four if the addition was Force of Will? Would you increase your counterspells from four to five if the addition was Pact of Negation?

Very nice deck. Always great to see another talrand user. A couple of suggestions...

Extra turn cards like Temporal Manipulation, Time Warp, and Capture of Jingzhou allow you to get a drake on cast, and at worst case, you end your turn, to get another turn, thus "ramping you" and providing "haste" for your drake.

I love your low AVG CMC, but a card worth mentioning is Blatant Thievery. This card has won me games EASILY.

Ancestral Vision is much better than it looks.

Kindred Discovery is a definite must! Free draws on each drake you make and attacks.

Caged Sun, while costs more than the lens, doesn't exile a land and gives a small anthem as well. Something to consider

Sky Diamond for more ramp if you feel you need it

Gilded Drake is cool as well, extra points if you bounce it back to your hand

Torrential Gearhulk is definitely a must add

Future Sight = CRAZY VALUE!

Overburden = Doesnt trigger on tokens, so its helpful :)

Land Equilibrium = Just because we hate ramp


Lastly, fetch lands can help, especially with crucible to ensure you don't miss any land drops. If you like, you can check out my deck Tisk Tisk Talrand for more ideas.

Strip Mine against Homeward Path

Back to Basics since you run all basics

Sky Diamond and Caged Sun for ramp

Minamo, School at Water's Edge for multiple commander activations

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for more ramp

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.

Leyline of Anticipation is better than Vedalken Orrery for blue

Sphinx-Bone Wand costs too much for what it does. Sky Diamond and Sapphire Medallion to help you ramp since Mono blue is weak at that.

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!

Gidgetimer on need esper mana ramp (commander)

In addition if we are just requiring a single turn of ramp on turn 1 or 2 there are the diamonds. Marble Diamond, Sky Diamond, Charcoal Diamond.

@Archwizard I wanted to know why you play Sky Diamond and Coldsteel Heart.

@Brewstorm I wanted to know why you put in Sky Diamond , Coldsteel Heart, and Star Compass . I really do think they're useless if you get into late game and you really need that one spec of mana to win, but you draw into one of these three cards.Also, why not Power Artifact in the deck? I know that you did take out the Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth combo out, so you'll have one less target for it, but you can still use it for Grim Monolith and Isochron Scepter, even though it doesn't decrease it to 0.
