Actually, I would cut three copies of Ancient Den , add two copies of Seat of the Synod and add a second copy of Urza, Lord High Artificer .

Now that I can see the mana curve and ratios, I would cut three Ancient Den s and add three Seat of the Synod s!

Ancient Den + Seat of the Synod + Vault of Whispers + Spire of Industry ($5) + Chromatic Lantern ($7) + Baleful Strix ($8) = $20

-OR-

Panharmonicon ($5) + Master Transmuter ($15) = $20

-OR-

Darksteel Forge = $20

Just some thoughts. My rec would be the first one, especially the mana base. Chromatic Lantern is a must for the Trips. (Prices per tcgplayer)

marn3us: I suggest removing Ancient Den , Vault of Whispers , Great Furnace and Seat of the Synod . My experience with the artifact lands has not been good, as (at least in my meta) Stony Silence , Null Rod , Back to Basics and Blood Moon are all over the place. However, even if this is not the case, artifact lands still die to any Shatter effect, meaning that they are especially vulnerable with little upside. In a deck like this, I don't think hitting a critical mass of artifacts will be an issue, so I think the three on-color slow fetches would be good instead. I also advise running at least one off-color slow fetch, probably Grasslands because you have more white than red, because it will still fetch your Hallowed Fountain and Godless Shrine , making it effectively a dual land. If you don't want to run off-color fetches, I advise adding another shock of a color combination you don't have yet, like Sacred Foundry or Blood Crypt .

Hi lifemtg!

I was looking at your deck since I also have a Sen Triplets deck in the works, and I thought up some potentially helpful information. For instance, a nice budget way to fix all your mana to cast your opponent's spells would be Chromatic Lantern . It taps for any colour of mana as well. Down that route, I would also suggest Mycosynth Lattice , as there are some fun shenanigans that you can do once everything is an artifact. However, it has been shooting up in price recently, so if you don't already have one it might be too expensive.

For your land base, I recommend removing lands that come in tapped unless they are the ones that gives you any colour of mana. (Since you're on a budget, I understand why you put those in, but in my opinion, basic lands would just be better, unless you want to replace them with shocklands or checklands, etc.) I also recommend adding Cascading Cataracts as a way to fix mana on a budget. Adding lands that tap for any colour is a big thing in your deck, and I can see you've already been trying to do that. A few more options, depending on your budget, are Gemstone Mine , City of Brass , Mana Confluence , Spire of Industry , and Forbidden Orchard . You could also add in Reflecting Pool , because although it doesn't always tap for any colour, it's a great land. Another couple of easy includes are the three esper artifact lands: Ancient Den , Seat of the Synod , and Vault of Whispers . This is important especially with your artifact subtheme. You also might want to reduce black land mana and replace that with blue. Finally, your avaerage CMC is very high, at around 4 CMC. I recommend trying to lower your curve by cutting some high CMC cards that don't enhance your strategy. Some recommendations for cuts could ve Oloro, Ageless Ascetic , and Colossus of Akros .

Anyway, if you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Chandra585 gave you good advice.

Tezzeret is a little over the $10 limit for cards upgrades, but I think you should make the exception because he really does everything you want with artifact strategies. His abilities are all repeatable that's what makes him so good in Commander. The budget lands that Chandra585 mentioned are also good upgrades. To expand on budget land suggestions consider:

The artifact lands untap by Unwinding Clock. Fair is a great land for artifact strategies.

Other good budget cards for artifact strategies to consider adding are:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Guildgate
  • Azorius Chancery
  • Evolving Wilds
  • Terramorphic Expanse
  • Temple of Enlightenment
  • Ice Cave
  • Ixalan's Binding
  • Martial Coup
  • Cloudblazer
  • Foil
  • Darksteel Ingot
  • Worn Powerstone
  • Aether Gale
  • AEtherspouts
