Tamiyo, the Moon Sage Discussion

SynergyBuild on An...Uncoventional commander

Deck sounds sweet, Stasis makes a great lock with is, as does Static Orb, Winter Orb, and some tutorage for those cards in the form of Muddle the Mixture, Enlightened Tutor, etc.

From that base, you could go more into turbo-stasis with Blind Obedience, Tangle Wire, Kismet, and Frozen AEther type cards, stax with Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, or permission control with Counterspells, Swords to Plowshares, Terminus, Supreme Verdict, and other control cards.

This could also be backed up be a strong walker plan, think Teferi, Temporal Archmage, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Jace, Architect of Thought.

Additionally, Teferi works well without creatures, you could run Humility as one of the harshest anti-creature cards, Cursed Totem to shut off more commanders, etc.

In a playgroup filled with walker commanders, Pithing Needle and Sorcerous Spyglass are great removal, as is anything else that can do similar effects. Suppression Field forces the issue that Stasis asks:

Can you pay for that?

Also, with a stax plan, or a control one in general, Rhystic Study is more powerful than usual, and never forget Mystic Remora! These cards should be pretty good.

Other than that, more cards that fit here are:

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Brago, King Eternal (flickers walkers to reset counters&activations for the turn), Azorius Signet, Cyclonic Rift, Fellwar Stone, Sol Ring, Chrome Mox, Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Swan Song, Path to Exile, Damping Sphere, Rings of Brighthearth (doubles walker activations!), Inspiring Statuary, Sphinx's Revelation, Search for Azcanta  Flip, Return to Dust, Fact or Fiction, Mystical Tutor, Arcane Denial, Teferi's Protection, Rewind, Reality Shift, Tragic Arrogance, Cleansing Nova, Treasure Cruise, Dig Through Time, Mind Stone, Sensei's Divining Top, etc.

Recommended adds: Tamiyo, the Moon Sage one of the best walkers in edh... she just does nuts things

Deadeye Navigator flicker djeru, deepglow skate or thalias lancers. Win?

Bitterblossom protect those walkers bro.

Tezzeret the Seeker able to tutor chain veil to the battlefield, and goes infinite with the chain veil. Almost a 1 card win the game combo.

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon another all around great card. One of the best ults in the game, and really easy to ult. Even if you don't ult him, he's a selective board wipe or removal/burn.

I'll leave what you cut for these up to you, because alot of the chooves will be largely meta dependent. The rest of the swaps I'm going to recommend are for direct upgrades to cards that are currently in your deck, meaning swap card a for card b. Not saying to cut these to make room for the above cards, unless you feel that's the best choice.

Recommended swaps Cut Day of Judgment Add Supreme Verdict or Wrath of God. Probably Verdict since regeneration isn't super common, but either one is strictly better than day of judgment.

Cut Call the Gatewatch or Mystical Tutor or Enlightened Tutor Add Vampiric Tutor

What really bothers me:

Kruphix, God of Horizons - "No maximum hand size" (hard to get rid of in compare to Reliquary Tower or Thought Vessel - I feel like I will draw a lot here) and good way to store crazy amounts of mana made by Gyre Sage when I don't need it.

Prime Speaker Zegana - MASSIVE draw engine, but I'm afraid of her cost. Quite expensive, but also good to reanimate (I can kill her with Retribution of the Ancients just to draw cards again.

Vedalken Orrery - As Foretold lets me cast stuff in my opponents turns, but only instants which is sad :c

Cathars' Crusade - the only downside of it (which is holding me back from putting it right away) is high cost.

Privileged Position - protection for my guys from removal and more importantly - for mana rocks, lands and important stuff like As Foretold, Inexorable Tide etc.

Tamiyo, the Moon Sage - pure value. Each abillity is very good.

Jace, the Mind Sculptor - well...Mind Sculptor. 'Nuff said.

I feel like I'm running short on free spots. Since I've always wanted to run Jace, the Mind Sculptor in any of my decks (mainly because of fear factor that he generates) I'm thinking about some planeswalkers like him or Tamiyo, the Moon Sage and Sorin Markov. (Sorin can be tough to cast, but in this build I think it will be possible to cast his second ability on more than one player.

Second thing - let me know about the balance of this deck so far. I feel like there's not enough creatures and mana curve can be clunky sometimes.

Isochron Scepter counts as a cast, Metallurgic Summonings can get lots of instants and sorceries back, Ghastly Discovery and Cast Through Time get repeatable casts, Day of the Dragons, Gravitational Shift and Favorable Winds improve your drakes, and Deluge, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, and Opposition work great with them too

How do you normally win with this deck? It seems like if your opponent can deal with Doom Whisperer and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip you're kind of dead in the water, hoping to top-deck removal spells.

You probably don't need 4x Disinformation Campaigns, and I personally don't see the merit of Dead Weight in any deck running board wipes like Ritual of Soot or Golden Demise. You could cut 2x Campaign, both Weights, 2x Vraska's Contempt, and add in some cheaper, single-target removal like Cast Down, Murder, Lava Coil or Fight with Fire.

I've had a lot of success running Gilded Lotus - I put it in every midrange deck, if possible. Playing a Lotus on Turn 5 still leaves up mana for a Murder, Sinister Sabotage, Golden Demise, Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin, etc. I've also really enjoyed running a couple Tetzimoc, Primal Deaths, as he gives you something to sink excess mana into and he usually forces your opponent to play more reserved.

I would also cut down on 2x Discovery / Dispersal and 1x Search for Azcanta  Flip, put in 1x Connive / Concoct and 2x Chemister's Insight/Dark Bargain/Notion Rain.

I would also add in Shocks and/or Lightning Strikes, but I think I'm turning this into my old Grixis Midrange I played when Tamiyo, the Moon Sage was in Standard. 6 years ago. Damn... where does the time go? TELL ME.

Cephalid Constable if you have ways of pumping it and making it unblockable.

Blizzard Specter can lock an opponent out with Orb of Dreams, if you bounce everything they own, they won't be able to play a land and kill it in the same turn.

Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker can +3 to destroy land. Tamiyo, the Moon Sage can tap down a single land forever, and has an emblem that would be absolutely devastating with Boomerang effects.

Enter the Infinite could be a good win con. And to make sure you dont discard every card you draw add some infinite hand size cards like Library of Leng, Thought Vessel, Reliquary Tower are all a must have in your deck but even Nezahal, Primal Tide, Graceful Adept, Spellbook, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, and Venser's Journal could help out
