Sky Diamond Discussion

@Lanzo493 - Wishclaw Talisman I actually own, I didn't think to include it because my opponents also get an advantage from it, but if I use it to grab my winning piece, then theoretically they wont get to take advantage of it. I think I will test that further. If I am not mistake I have some Ponder and Preordain laying around as well...I will take a look and see what I can find. I am already running two ways to net infinite mana in my deck, plus the win con of just getting Oracle and Consultation. I swapped away from a Tainted Pact win-con because I wanted to run more basics for a more consistent untap land ratio. I will look into getting some more non-basic lands that come in untapped, but for now I think I will just stick with Consultation. Endurance looks really solid, but unfortunately it is out of my budget range currently. I am running all the mana dorks I have access to currently with the exception of one in my Meren deck, but I want to leave it there, if I can get my hands on some more in the future I will definitely slot them in for additional mana though. I know Sky Diamond is slow, but it is better than my other options currently. In your opinion, knowing my chances of winning are slim of course, could I at least sit at a table of cEDH and get some games in with this list?

Wanna play a not super $$$ deck but benefit off of everyone else's 0 mana accelerants, Docksides, etc? Run Culling Ritual. It's a great card.
I'm pretty new to cEDH, but I like to think I understand some of the basics. So take my advice if it appears sound. cEDH is mainly about speed and interaction. By utilizing 2 card combos, you can use just a small number of cards to win and use the rest of the deck to interact and prevent your opponents from winning. That is cEDH on average outside of high speed combo decks.
To translate that ideology into cards, it means that slow mana is bad. Lands that enter tapped and mana rocks that enter tapped don't allow you to keep up Counterspell mana at the same time as you mana ramp. This puts you incrementally behind until the crucial moment comes and you lose in a counterspell war due to lack of mana. For this reason mana rocks like Fellwar Stone are much preferred to Sky Diamond. However, a turn one Elves of Deep Shadow is still worth it even if it's slow on any other turn, so I would add that.
Another thing about cEDH that differs from high power commander is the shift from card advantage to card quality. You don't need to draw a lot of cards to win (think of cards like Genesis Wave or Recurring Insight), but rather just need the right cards. Tutors are great for this. Ponder, Preordain, and Brainstorm are fantastic as well since they're cheap, letting you keep mana up for interaction, while also giving you quality cards. I would recommend all of them. Wishclaw Talisman is a solid tutor that you can probably afford, too.
Honestly, with Tasigur on a budget, I would go for infinite mana combos, which you're already doing. Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal is on the moderate side as far as costs go, but it's powerful since you also have a lot of instants. You also already have Muddle the Mixture which basically only sees play in cEDH to assemble a scepter combo anyway while being a counter when needed. Well, that's at least why I run it. You can even search up Pili-Pala with it.
On a side note, if you run into Thassa's Oracle a lot, I would consider trading for an Endurance. Not only can this card trick an opponent into exiling most of their deck and alternate wincons in the process, it can also shuffle your own deck back into your library if it gets too full and your opponents only give you trash cards when activating Tasigur. And if you wanted to pull off a Tainted Pact win, you can use 3 normal basics and 3 snow-covered basics. Of course, you'll need lots of different lands, too, but it's not impossible on a budget.

Letter of Acceptance is a new pauper mana rock as well! Pentad Prism is good for mana fixing. Marble Diamond , Sky Diamond , Charcoal Diamond , Fire Diamond , and Moss Diamond are one of every color. Spectral Searchlight was recently reprinted as a common in Commander Legends.

I'm personally not a fan of cantrips in commander, so maybe switch out cards like Adventurous Impulse , Charge Through and Strategic Planning for some of the draw spells with bigger impact like Military Intelligence or Tatyova, Benthic Druid .

you know this deck actually has tons of draw which makes sense for a blue white color pairing. Because you're drawing so many cards, i think you're able to drop down to 37ish lands and not be affected. seeing as your primary wincon isnt to mill out your opponents, a Teferi's Tutelage and Memory Erosion aren't really going to be too effective. Court of Cunning i think gets a pass solely for giving you monarch. tons of card draw and interaction which i love to see in a deck, one suggestion for synergistic ramp that i think is underrated is Midnight Clock , early ramp and mid-late game refresh the hand. and a Marble Diamond / Sky Diamond couldn't hurt either

Arcum Dagsson is a little pricey at $4 (USD), but from being able to fetch a Nevinyrral's Disk on endstep and untapping immediately with it, to putting Orbs of Warding into play in response to a Jaya's Immolating Inferno : this card's a superstar.
Grand Architect functions either as just an anthem to pump your team or a way to power out your artifacts--all at the low low price of 80 cents!
Thought Vessel , Mind Stone , Wayfarer's Bauble , Fellwar Stone , Sky Diamond , Burnished Hart , Dreamscape Artist , Myriad Landscape ... you could consider running any or all of those to improve/increase your ramp package.
I really like the concept! Keep tinkering!

Hi, I would recommend taking out Marble Diamond and Sky Diamond in favour of Fellwar Stone , Thought Vessel or a Talisman of Progress . When Brago triggers he will return your mana rocks untapped so any rocks that enter tapped are nonbos with this. Otherwise great list!
