Cloud Key Discussion

colton815 on Reduce ability cost of artifiacts

you're probably better off mana ramping and reducing the cost of the artifacts themselves so you have mana enough to both cast stuff and activate abilities. off the top of my head i know of Etherium Sculptor, Cloud Key, and Semblance Anvil.

Trying to speed things up via reduced cost cards/'cheating big creatures in' effects. Things like Cloud Key, Dragon Arch and maybe? Krosan Drover not sure.

Also thinking of switching the theme from 'Big Things.dec' to Temur Dragons... not sure if it's the best idea though because it works decently already.

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions everyone!

KsP_FtW: Cloud Key would be nice if it didnt cost 3 mana. As is, its just a too slow. Thanks anyways!

ThrunTheTroll628: I already make use of the Weirds, via Slip Through Space, and swinging for 15 unblockable. The Grapeshot is there because its difficult to counter, so Im hesitant to take it out. Likewise, Peek, instead of alerting me to removal, actually is more for removal, so that I know whether to hold a Shoal in hand and swing for barely lethal or discard it to go for the maximum damage.

cwhite99: Gitaxian Probe is banned in modern. If it were legal Id be running it.

OperaGhost thats exactly why lol, darn those dumb modern players XD

SpookyToe: You know that brings up a dilemma Ive been facing with this deck.

So, I pose a question for everyone that may read this: Should I sideboard Annul, Spell Pierce, Swan Song, or Stubborn Denial? They all have their ups and downs, but in playtesting they each come in handy in different situations. If anyone has any reasons why I should use one over the others, Id particularly appreciate that input.

Thanks again to everyone who has contributed so far!

What about Cloud Key? You could use it as a way to make Manamorphose free, if you're kinda going late game, this could defiantly speed up your process.

Yes esper struggles with "good" win conditions for edh. You can always go Doomsday the classic 1 card win condition and there is a great primer on how to use it below.
The second rout you can do is what I did with my esper deck and use Aetherflux Reservoir. In Esper Tech the goal is to get Sensei's Divining Top, Basalt Monolith and Rings of Brighthearth. Once you have those you generate infinite mana with Rings and basalt using Rings of Brighthearth to copy Basalt Monolith's untap ability. Then you can tap Sensei's Divining Top and copy that effect with Rings of Brighthearth. From there you draw a card put Top on top of your library and draw Sensei's Divining Top again and repeat until you draw Aetherflux Reservoir or if that is gone you can play Laboratory Maniac to win.
You can do the exact same thing in a slightly different manner using Future Sight, Sensei's Divining Top and Cloud Key or Etherium Sculptor. Basically get all those out tap Sensei's Divining Top, draw a card then put Sensei's Divining Top on your library and play it for free from there with Future Sight and repeat to draw your deck.

The final way to do this process is Sensei's Divining Top, and Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal imprinted. Basically tap Sensei's Divining Top, activate Isochron Scepter untap Sensei's Divining Top and tap Sensei's Divining Top again.
In all of these scenarios you use Sensei's Divining Top and some engine that allows you to draw through your deck while raising your storm count for the eventual Aetherflux Reservoir
