Ocelot44 on Tajic Hatebears

If you love hate cards as much as I do, then I've got a lot of recommendations!

Torpor Orb is a Tocatli Honor Guard that doesn't die to creature wipes

Bastion Protector will protect Tajic while Tajic protects Bastion Protector, so easy wombo combo

I know this might seem counterintuitive, but Boros Reckoner and Truefire Captain could both go really well in here! If Tajic ever gets removed, then suddenly any Blasphemous Act effects become massive burn spells! I'd also recommend other Earthquake effects like Magmaquake, Hour of Devastation, or Chain Reaction

With your +1/+1 counter subtheme, creatures with persist like Twilight Shepherd, Kithkin Spellduster, and Furystoke Giant could all be good, or even Cauldron of Souls could be hilarious

If you want more reanimation hate, I really love Containment Priest! It's a Hallowed Moonlight effect that doesn't hit tokens, but it sticks around if you can defend it

Chain Reaction, Aether Gale, Evacuation, Blasphemous Act, Cyclonic Rift, Mizzium Mortars for sweepers

Rapid Hybridization, Pongify, Reality Shift, Curse of the Swine, Chaos Warp for spot removal.

I assume you have counters in the deck...but here are some suggestions anyway, in case you haven't heard of them: Ionize, Disallow, Counterflux, Misdirection, Rewind, Summary Dismissal (personal favorite of mine), Overwhelming Denial, Arcane Denial, Negate, Essence Scatter...

I know most pillow fort cards aren't instants or sorceries, but if your problem is getting overrun in combat, you could try Propaganda and the like.

Hope this helps!

Why would I want protection from sacrificing, other than for All Is Dust? It's pretty advantageous to sac the tokens I make with Feldon through Ashnod's Altar, Krark-Clan Ironworks etc, so I couldn't even use it as a stat boost.

I'll swap out Chain Reaction for Blasphemous Act

I personally prefer Goblin Welder's reduced cost and ability to be replayed with Feldon over Trash for Treasure's speed. I can see a lot of situations where Scrap Mastery would be a dead card in my hand, although it would make a nice sideboard counter for board clears.

I considered Metalwork Colossus, Inferno Titan and Steel Hellkite. I decided that the foremost didn't do enough as a big graveyard body to be useful, and I don't really have enough mana generally to make use of the latter two. I also had Scuttling Doom Engine in this deck for a while, but I decided that I have enough aggro and need more board control.

Ancient Stone Idol would make a great addition but I can't decide what to swap it out for, any suggestions?

p.s. oh shoot you're right he's banned I will escort him off the premises

Don't forget you need a few board wipes, Blasphemous Act and Chain Reaction being some of the best obv.

You also gotta make sure the payoffs are there. Like, how are you actually killing people with all this artifact recursion

Scourge of the Nobilis and Rise of the Hobgoblins are good.

If you want to protect your boss from your own damage spells maybe Crown of Awe or Magebane Armor

Earthquake and Chain Reaction

Removed Sundial of the Infinite, since it doesn't synergize with Feldon of the Third Path the way I thought it did. I added in Chain Reaction since I need more board clears.

Love the direction you took your deck! I've also made a $50 budget deck with Thrax called Un-FLICKING-believable!!!!!!!!!! and i've had a lot of fun and success with it.

I'm definitly stealing your Chain Reaction and Ixidron tech, that's amazing!

I think if you wanted to add some card draw it helps keep the deck flowing, maybe cards like Painful Truths, Secrets of the Golden City and Pull from Tomorrow could do work.

also Worn Powerstone powers out your commander quite fast (for budget builds).

I've really liked the 2 CMC rocks for my list. They allow you to cast two spells in the same turn much easier than a 3 CMC rock. Like at 5 lands you could cast a 2 CMC rock and a 4 drop, which is pretty good game in my book.

Devastation Tide could get you out of a couple sticky situations, might be better than displacement wave.

if you ever have room in the budget the combo of Notion Thief and Commit / Memory is really back breaking.

If you ever have time to look at mine I'd really appreciate another budget builders opinion on it!
