So yeah like the title says I am selling some EDH cards of mine since I am in need of some cash to help pay some bills. Being an adult is fun am I right? I'm selling them for quite a bit less than TCG market price. The cards and my asking prices for them, and also their conditions are as follows:
Avacyn, Angel of Hope NM $19
Batterskull NM $14
Greater Auramancy NM $19
Extraplanar Lens LP $10
Elspeth, Sun's Champion NM $7
Kaya, Ghost Assassin NM $5.50So there they are. Who wants any of them?

kilgore Thanks for the suggestion, I swapped out Metalwork Colossus, God-Pharaoh's Gift, Batterskull, and Obelisk of Urd and put in Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Hedron Archive, and Sculpting Steel Thanks for the suggestions. I'll update the post with results on how the deck is running after the changes.

So Affinity isn't a good deck in Legacy and it hasn't been a good deck in a long time. But there are some cool ways to build it which would improve this list.
The core you must have is basically 12x artifact lands. 4x Ornithopter. 4x Arcbound Ravager. 2-4 Springleaf Drum. 4x Mox Opal. 2-4x Cranial Plating. 3-4 Vault Skirge. 3-4 Master of Etherium. 3-4 Ancient Tomb. 3-4 Glimmer Void. Then you want 2-4 Galvanic Blast and 2-4 Thoughtcast.
From there, there are a few ways you can go. Some lists want Stoneforge Mystic/Batterskull as extra mystics fetch up Cranial Plating. Some lists want Chalice of the Void, because you can play it on 1 and just auto win games. Some lists play Blood Moon for an auto win. Akiri, Line-Slinger is a fun way to go high especially if you go for Smuggler's Copter or some utility artifacts like Welding Jar. Dark Confidant is pretty popular, especially if you run stuff like Hangarback Walker/Walking Ballista. Some lists are also a little slower with cards like Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, or Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast as ways to get value or create hard to beat board states.
Personally I'm a fan of this list coming out of Japan. It lacks the punch I think other lists have, but I love the engine and its ability to threaten in combat a lot of the stuff like Batterskull.

I'm glad someone took the time to read my write-up.
So, I never thought about Batterskull. That's definitely something to play test. Seems like super sweet sideboard tech.
As for Liliana of the Veil, I've hemmed and hawed over her for quite some time. I've never actually play tested with her. I keep thinking she could be great, then I feel like she's too slow. Do I really need to discard every turn? Maybe... I guess I'm just going to have to play a few and see how it goes.
Love the idea of Raven's Crime! Didn't think about that either but it's something I'm going to play test.
Thanks again!! Please, try the deck out yourself. I'd love to see how it works out.

First of all, congratulation on making such a sweet list. I can feel that you've been putting quite some work in there!
Then, for the suggestions: you are running a very control-ish sulta build, color combinaison that isn't know for its sustain nor reach when it comes to win conditions. Thus, how about Batterskull as an alternate win-condition? It also creates a token, which can be relevant sometimes. Then, by playing black you have access to the strongest planeswalker there is in this format: Liliana of the Veil. Since you like your stuff being discarded, I think you should definitively run a few copies. The part I like the most about your list is probably Life from the Loam. This card is stupidly strong, so why not playing more copies in order to abuse it? Without going for all-in cards like Zombie Infestation, you can play the horrifying Raven's Crime lockdown to keep your opponent in check... ;)

Thanks much for the additional thoughts on Batterskull. I think that if I add a Chandra, Flamecaller it's going to be as a one-of, but I always "oversubscribe" during testing. So on MTGO right now, I'm running +2x Big Chandra, -1x Primal Command, -1x Inferno Titan.

I ran Batterskull maindeck for over a year, alongside a Thragtusk and two Obstinate Baloths. I pulled Batterskull and replaced with a Courser of Kruphix largely because I wanted the Batterskull for an EDH deck. Of the two, I prefer Thragtusk for the instant lifegain against Burn. Sometimes you're dead before Batterskull or Wurmcoil Engine can connect.
Regarding Big Chandra, do you prefer her over a Titan in the 6-drop slot? I tried her for a while, still prefer the Titan.

Thanks so much for mentioning Batterskull! I had looked at it a while back, but life gain effects were not as important in my meta at the time ... but it's definitely worth a re-look now. Do you run it instead of Thragtusk, or something else?
