Alloy Myr Discussion

Suns_Champion: Alloy Myr also works to power up Puppet Conjurer for infinite. Similar to Puppet Conjurer you also have Ghoulcaller Gisa, Lich Lord of Unx, and Myr Propagator,, although those last two are gonna need a lot of mana dorks. I can think of Leaden Myr, Silver Myr, Alloy Myr, Apprentice Wizard (if you have a producer it gets you to the for Propagator), Crystalline Crawler, Cultivator Drone (Propagator only), Gold Myr, Magus of the Coffers, Lotus Guardian (painfully expensive), Opaline Unicorn, Scuttlemutt, Vesper Ghoul (although limited), and Kozilek's Channeler.
Myr Turbine could be great as well. After playing it, Zur tutors Animate Artifact, Ensoul Artifact, or Tezzeret's Touch and puts it on Turbine, which then goes infinite with Intruder Alarm. Same idea with Summoning Station and Throne of Empires

I like the idea of it. The only thing I am not too keen on is the one-ofs on some spells (especially creatures). It just feels a bit unreliable to me. I would probably replace the Torrential Gearhulk with two more copies of Sharding Sphinx? Also, I'd add at least one more Cloud Key? I would also drop Loxodon Warhammer for one more Cranial Plating. While the trample is good, it might be more beneficial to go ham on the buff plating gets from the other artifacts you have in the deck.
I'd also consider the following Myrs: Darksteel Myr, perfect target for attachments, once you cast it, it will be hard to get rid of; Alloy Myr/Palladium Myr, Silver Myr, Iron Myr, and Leaden Myr in case you need to fix your mana supply; Lodestone Myr, if you want that sweet, sweet trample; Myr Enforcer, because you will likely be able to cast it for free. There may be other useful Myrs too ...

Just having a look at this now, Duggan.Got a fair few allies, but sadly not all of them!
Looks like you may be a couple dollars over budget too, so might have to make a replacement somewhere
Initial thoughts are lose the non-ally ramp creatures Avacyn's Pilgrim, Elves of Deep Shadow, Alloy Myr and to a lesser extent Joiner Adept (since her ability is quite special) and replace them with mana rocks, as artifacts can survive a board wipe much better.
You're probably also going to want to put in some more removal. Board wipes are tricky in heavily creature based decks, as you damage yourself as much as anyone else, but In Garruk's Wake or Plague Wind can provide the solutions you need. Another good wipe for you is Aligned Hedron Network, since most of your guys will be under 5 power.
Zendikar Resurgent might be a good shout for card draw and mana efficiency. Since you'll be playing regular creatures it's a reliable source of draw... although I haven't checked the price... even so you may not even want to put it in as there are probably more pressing options ahead of it.
Cheap removal like Angelic Purge or Journey to Nowhere might be good and perhaps even Oblivion Ring. You could really go with anything cheap, but a good guideline is usually 7-10 removal options (not including board wipes), however I see lots of your creatures can serve as forms of removal themselves, so you may not need to cut that much stuff?
The tricky part is knowing what to axe from the list, so I'll just see if I can short-list what I would consider to be the most redundant, or least efficient cards:
Felidar Guardian - More or less a one time effect unless you can reliably flicker him over and over again and for 4 mana you have better stuff to do.
Coralhelm Guide - The activated ability is quite costly, and usually in a smaller creatures deck you tend to be swinging wide rather than tall. Unblockability is attractive, but is it worth not including more removal for?
Tajuru Beastmaster - It's a good ability to be sure, but you need to be playing in lost and lots of allies pre-combat to make it worth it, and there are strictly better versions already in the deck. If you have to make a cut, perhaps this guy?
Prismatic Geoscope - Reads very well, but even in a 3 color deck, it's hard to tease those basics out of the deck. You might end up paying for a 5 mana slow rock that only taps for 2 or 3, in which case Market Festival becomes a slightly better option. Generally speaking by the time you've manged to get one of each basic out, you'll already have more than enough mana.
Allied Reinforcements adds up in terms of mana efficiency, but that's all it does. If it cast at instant speed it would make a nice combat trick or instant rally trigger, but as a sorcery it's a little lackluster. One pop of two extra allies is nice, but I'd priorities some removal ahead of this, especially considering the volume of creatures you already have. I'd argue the same point to a lesser extent for Unified Front, but four simultaneous rally triggers, is nothing to sniff at on the other hand.
Also you can definitely afford to cut a couple of lands. 37 is usually what I would consider a max amount, but with your curve topping out at 6 mana cost (low for EDH) you could probably afford to go down to 35 if you needed to.
Stoneforge Masterwork a good card for this, if you end up having room, maybe not though?
That's about all my thoughts on this for now. The main thing is probably just more removal though. Other than that the prospect of all those stacking rally triggers looks really scary and intense! Nice job! =)

Think about adding a Blightsteel Colossus as a target for Kuldotha Forgemaster when you have 5 artifcats out as as it's an articate glissa it fits into your deck synergyAnd while Beseech the Queen is good, in commander i would rather run Demonic Tutor over it anyday snice it doesn't come with any draw backs or rescritions. and if possible use Vampiric TutorSeeing you have Darksteel Forge + Unwinding Clock i think you should add another one to your mix Mycosynth Lattice
This Memnarch + Mycosynth Lattice combo would mean you dont need blue mana to use Memnarch ablilties which if used with the Lattice you can steal any perment on the board, including your oppents commanders if they become a pain. if your worred about not having blue just incase something happens to the lattice , there are many mana fixing cards such as Cryptolith Fragment Flip City of Brass Exotic Orchard Mirrodin's Core Alloy Myr Lotus Valeand Mana ConfluenceI would recommend getting a few more artificat lands and using lotus vale so you can sac them and use Glissa, the Traitor ability to bring them back just because you dont run red, white and blue doesn't mean you can't use the colored mana they give you to pay for your gerenic mana costs. your more interested in the fact they are artificatsI think you can get rid of Crypt Ghast and use Gaea's Cradle instead, or you can use them both there isn't really one over the other. just creatures are much more easly removed compared to lands.Now snice we are playing with artificats, i know this is away from the reanimator purpose of this deck. but if you include Mindslaver well with this you can control a player for the whole game. it's quite simple. you play this, sac it as soon as possible, take control of player mess them up by wasting their mana abilities and spells, attack with any creature that can attack, Glissa, the Traitor murders it you can Mindslaver back in your hand, rise and repeat.Finnally just a small question, Where is your Sol Ring?

Your deck looks decent for a budget deck, but remember that it is extremely easy to remove artifacts and creatures in EDH. You need some more ramp and coverage for your creatures.
Here are my brief recommendations.
Remove: Quest for the Holy Relic- You don't have enough creatures to make this useful or consistent
I recommend taking a look at Srama Lama Ding Dong - Sram $40 Budget Voltron and These Are a Few of Sram's Favorite Things (CheapDH as while they are different than your and run different commanders, you'll probably find quite a few ideas to upgrade your deck.

You may have overlooked Ancient Den, it seems like you have the other artifact lands. Although $3.00 isn't really budget to a lot of people, you may have an extra you can toss his way.
Some more ramp in the deck would be good, especially artifact creatures that can bring big stuff in mid-game and swing with Jor Kadeen later. Maybe Alloy Myr, Hedron Crawler, Manakin, Opaline Unicorn, Plague Myr, and/or Scuttlemutt.
Mentor of the Meek could really help with card draw, too.
