Padeem, Consul of Innovation

Artifacts you control have hexproof.
At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control the artifact with the highest converted mana cost or tied for the highest converted mana cost, draw a card.

Padeem, Consul of Innovation Discussion

Hey, nice budget upgrade so far of the precons.
It looks like you've mixed the Osgir precon with the Breya precon which is interesting. Osgir kind of has some negative synergy with Breya or Silas as Commander because Osgir's best ability is to exile an artifact from your graveyard. With Breya and Silas you want to take advantage of being able to reanimate/recur artifacts meaning you don't want to exile them from your graveyard. Akiri has nice interaction with Osgir because he makes token copies of artifacts that make Akiri bigger. In saying this if you want to better utilize Osgir then play Akiri/Silas as Commanders.
Osgir's exile ability is powerful, but it doesn't go with Breya therefore in my opinion Osgir is out of place. I play budget Breya and not Akiri/Silas thus I may have some bias, but these Commanders seem very different in gameplay. With Akiri/Silas attacking seems important, using Commander damage as a source of winning and value. Breya is less about attacking with her and more about using her ability sacing artifacts for modes for value to control the game. Breya's best strength as Commander is being a win condition combo piece with the two Thopters she creates.
With Breya as Commander I would play Silas in the 99 because he's an artifact, but not Akiri. With Akiri/Silas I would play Breya in the 99 because she's an artifact who's three artifacts for four mana. Akiri/Silas want evasion to be able to do as much combat Commander damage therefore I would include more budget artifacts to give them evasion:
You don't really want these with Breya instead budget combo pieces:
All these Commander choices are better with less creatures and more artifacts. Lots of creatures is not what you want unless they're artifact creatures because all these Commanders abilities are only good with artifacts. 40 creatures is a lot of creatures for any Commander deck that's not tribal like Elves. Consider cutting creatures for more artifacts?
There are some exceptions here for nonartifact creatures:
- Hellkite Tyrant : can be a win condition.
- Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain : powerful repeatable draw with more artifacts.
- Chief Engineer : with more artifacts ramp for artifacts.
- Digsite Engineer : repeatable source of creating artifacts.
- Emry, Lurker of the Loch : repeatable cast artifacts from your graveyard.
- Padeem, Consul of Innovation : protect artifacts and can be repeatable draw.
Whirler Rogue seems very good with Akiri/Silas to make either or both unblockable, but is subpar with Breya. You could cut all the others that I didn't name for artifacts or other cards.
Some cards to consider cutting to get to 99:
- Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer
- Hellkite Igniter
- Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge
- Losheel, Clockwork Scholar
- Sydri, Galvanic Genius
- Thopter Engineer
- Alibou, Ancient Witness
- Sun Titan
- Osgir, the Reconstructor if Breya is Commander.
- Akiri, Line-Slinger if Breya is Commander.
- Whirler Rogue if Breya is Commander.
I offer more advice. Would you like more advice? Good luck with deck.

Memnarch was swiftly replaced by Padeem, Consul of Innovation in my first mono blue deck for exactly the reasons you mentioned. I later went Jeskai for artifacts, and have had trouble enjoying mono blue since. I prefer playing on the board, not on the stack, and blue's way of doing so just doesn't cut it for me in most cases.
My playgroup has an incidental preference for cEDH though, I'm keeping a Naru Meha, Master Wizard list at hand for just that purpose, with a short sideboard in case the game needs to be more casual. Wizard tribal is tricksy enough to enjoy from time to time.

That would be
Mycosynth Wellspring , Seize the Spoils , Phyrexian Metamorph , Trail of Evidence , Pirate's Pillage , Saheeli, Sublime Artificer , Curse of Opulence , Blasphemous Act , Ghost Quarter / Field of Ruin , Mirrodin Besieged , Saheeli, the Gifted , Mystic Retrieval , Relic of Progenitus / Tormod's Crypt , Star of Extinction , Cyclonic Rift , Comet Storm , Chaos Warp , Loyal Apprentice , Thopter Spy Network , Sai, Master Thopterist , Hypersonic Dragon , Padeem, Consul of Innovation , Ravenform , Memnarch , Liquimetal Coating , Blatant Thievery , and Inspiring Statuary .
I did that with the following code:
[[mycosynth wellspring]], [[seize the spoils]], [[phyrexian Metamorph]], [[trail of evidence]], [[pirate's pillage]], [[saheeli, Sublime Artificer]], [[Curse of opulence]], [[Blasphemous act]], [[ghost quarter]]/[[field of ruin]], [[Mirrodin Besieged]], [[Saheeli the Gifted]], [[mystic retrieval]], [[relic of progenitus]]/[[tormod's crypt]], [[star of extinction]], [[cyclonic rift]], [[comet storm]], [[chaos warp]], [[Loyal apprentice]], [[thopter spy network]], [[Sai, Master Thopterist]], [[Hypersonic Dragon]], [[Padeem, Consul of Innovation]], [[Ravenform]], [[Memnarch]], [[liquimetal coating]], [[Blatant Thievery]], and [[Inspiring statuary]]

Have you considered Blood Tithe ? It hits all your opponents at once and gains you life from it.
Another card you may want to consider is Emissary of Despair . If your opponent has any combination of Darksteel Forge , Mycosynth Lattice , and Padeem, Consul of Innovation on the battlefield it may be your only shot at staying in the fight.

Thanks! Only had a chance to playtest it once so far since building and it probably needs more tweaking, but in other decks Padeem, Consul of Innovation has been great for just getting boardwide hexproof for artifacts since there's a lot of spot removal and fewer board wipes in my playgroup; having the extra draw is just a bonus if you can meet the condition, but if you can get out Darksteel Forge you're golden on that too 9 times out of 10.
TLDR; I feel like it really depends on your playgroup comp. with how helpful he can be

Interesting deck! Do you have any experiences with Padeem, Consul of Innovation ? How is it to play with this creature?
