As far as when to play Hangarback or Ballista, it will really depend on the matchup. If you're against something like infect, or devoted-druid, you'll want Ballista down asap so you can mess with your opponents plans and stop them getting an early win. Other games, it's better to hold onto Ballista for the late game. Generally the timing to play Ballista will depend on what you're up against, and will be something to learn over time. For Hangarback, you generally want to play it T2 if you're planning to have 3 lands but only casting a cmc2 creature on T3 (because this means that you can also tap Hangarback for an extra counter). Generally it's not worth waiting to play Hangarback, as it's better just to get it down early and slowly make it bigger to put pressure on your opponent to deal with it.

As far as sideboard cards for Karn, you'll want to scope out what your meta is like and bring hate cards for what people are running. I would say including 1-2 Liquimetal Coating is a must, as it lets Karn start sniping lands (turn them to artifacts with 0 toughness using Karns plus ability, so they die). Other than that, these are probably some good options to consider:

What cards you include will depend on what kinds of decks you typically find yourself up against, but also your budget. So far my advise has all been assuming that you're wanting to keep this relatively cheap - but this might not be the case? If you intend to be spending big-bucks on cards, there are more options available, but this might also mean you would want to build a completely different deck to what i've suggested so far (for example, this deck is my current artifact deck, which is a very competitive near-top-tier artifact deck. I've assumed so far that you're playing slightly more casually, and I might be wrong here?)

Hey, Obosh, the Preypiercer can really increase the damage output of your entire deck because Greven is odd 5 CMC. Don't use the companion ability if you're just playing it as a card in the 99. However, my suggestion is to use Obosh as companion because of Greven as well as many cards that are good with Greven are odd CMC.

Odd CMC creature base example:

Kiki can repeatably make a token copy of a nonlegandary creature to sac to Greven. Kiki is also an infinite combo with Conscripts for infinite Conscripts to attack or Celebrant for infinite attack steps.

Other Odd CMC cards:

If you like the idea of using Obosh as companion then if you would like I can further help you with adds/cuts.

Good luck with your deck.

Cool deck. Made one myself based around the same principles yet with God Cow as Commander; [Primer] Mogis' Slaughter House: Murder Made Tasty.

A few cards I'd like to suggest, keeping the theme going:

If you want to run Rimescale Dragon you'll need to run Snow-Covered Mountain rather than your basic Mountains. I'd say something like Embermaw Hellion instead, as it helps with your "damage addition effects".

Magebane Armor is an absolute must, as are Loxodon Warhammer and Lightning Greaves to go along with Basilisk Collar and Swiftfoot Boots -- Magebane keeps Ashling alive, while the warhammer is another source of lifelink.

The Shunt and Reverberate style effects are the best way of protecting your resources, so good job on putting them in. Same with all the draw spells, I'd think about Perpetual Timepiece and Elixir of Immortality as a means of getting things back, but it's not like this is a graveyard deck and you need to protect that space as a resource, as I say, just in case.

Right now is, I think, the cheapest Blood Moon has ever been, so strike while the iron is hot there if you can! Same (again, I think) with Braid of Fire.

I'd think about something to slot in over Retreat to Valakut and Claws of Valakut -- Might just be me, but they're two of the less synergistic choices. You could use those spots for Magebane and Warhammer, for example.

Otherwise I'd say just keep tweaking it and playing around. Use the Prof's vid to work out what synergies you want to pursue aside from damage amplification which is a good start.

Hi Dj

Cool deck. Made one myself based around the same principles yet with God Cow as Commander; [Primer] Mogis' Slaughter House: Murder Made Tasty.

A few cards I'd like to suggest, keeping the theme going:

Following cards I feel are a straight up upgrade over what's in the deck atm:

  • Rolling Earthquake over Earthquake: Hits every creature. (The foil version is the cheap one.)

  • Basilisk Collar over Gorgon's Head: Same cmc and activation cost, yet comes with LIfelink. What's better than dealing tons of dmg to your opponents? Dealing tons of dmg and healing for the same amount

Keep up the good work!

Basilisk Collar and Goblin Sharpshooter always make a great pair. Plays into your artifact synergy and Hellkite Tyrant win con as well.

Vimozahr I just removed Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Lightning Crafter from the deck. I played quite a lot of games the last recent weeks. I have never won a game with the combo. It's just way to mana intense Zealous Conscripts is way to costly too. The main plan is get krenko and go infinite. That's the same thing with Basilisk Collar it just doesn't fit in. You need Goblin Sharpshooter to make it work, that's far to niche. Sure it's a boardwhipe but at what cost. We must focus on our mainplan for maximizing consistancy.
