Cereal_Killer on Lightning Coils

I know Coretapper is a good option, but why don't you add more dying creatures as Spark Elemental, Hellspark Elemental or Lightning Serpent? This will increase the chances to put some counters on Lightning Coils if you don't find Coretapper

For example I'd also add one/two more Hope of Ghirapur, since you could use it to prevent your things being countered and you will add more counters on the coils.

For the same reason I'd put some Sakura-Tribe Elder

Could some draw cards like Serum Visions or Opt help avoid a potential lack of cards in your hand?

Oh, Trading Post plus Mycosynth Lattice plus and infinite mana loop plus Voltaic Construct plus some way to turn Trading Post into a creature = infinite life and basically a tutor loop. Also, I recommend Elixir of Immortality to let you loop your graveyard through your deck over and over again.

Again, if you don't want to fit these in, they're expensive, but they are fun.

Oh, a budget combo: Voltaic Key plus Magistrate's Scepter plus Energy Chamber plus Coretapper = infinite turns. Of course, you need 5 mana available, but... it's EDH.

Really, you won't always see these combos, but when you do see the occasional one they are super epic. Oh, the Trading Post loop triggers Glassdust Hulk as well because the Goats are artifacts with Mycosynth Lattice.

I like this deck! It's similar to my Kurkesh with Cannon and Key that also revolves around Coretapper and Astral Cornucopia, and is kinda like a distand budged relative of this.

Salutations for finding Erayo, Soratami Ascendant. It's a cool card and I'm glad to find out about it!

I even have a suggestion for you: Freejam Regent. It dodges almost all removal in modern and is a solid finisher.

@Iron_eye2 The issue with either of those additions is the added clunckyness and win more nature of the cards. I’m sure that you noticed that this deck runs an average CMC of 1.26. We can utilize Coretapper to empower our cheap X drop artifacts and ultimately create pseudo ramp. Our lock is not insanely consistent but it is reliable enough given what other measures we have to lock out our opponent. Most interaction occurs in the 1 or 3 mana slots, we abuse this fact by running effectively no 1 drops or 3 drops such that we maximize the value of our Chalice of the Voids. I can’t see makeong the additions that you mentioned because I do not believe that either of them serve to offer a better alternative to what we currently run. I appreciate the input though.

ersatz_olorin: I use Magistrate's Scepter in my Atraxa deck at the moment, Atraxa Artifacts.

I imagine the card would be hard to use unless your whole deck is focused on charge counters. My Atraxa deck is all about charge counters and proliferating, so it works well in there as a payoff card. When you're using cards like Energy Chamber, Coretapper, Astral Cornucopia, Voltaic Key, and Everflowing Chalice you can get enough mana to go infinite.

The easiest way is probably to use the Basalt Monolith & Rings of Brighthearth combo to get infinite colourless mana, then have a Voltaic Key to get infinite triggers.

Not really a competitive EDH strategy, but profilerating is alot of fun.

Mimic Vat, Coretapper and Dross Scorpion. Not infinite, but for each three mana lets you put 3 charge counters on Darksteel Reactor.

Also, I agree with Suns_Champion, Runnign Zur seems fun. Can get stuff like Tempered Steel as well.

So recently I found Coretapper and thought of an interesting combo around Coretapper and Darksteel Reactor. Id love to get some feedback and ideas to improve the combo. Im going to be fitting this into my current deck Myr Warmachine [Current]

K_Train on Energy Chamber

Sweet deck, man! It's an awesome concept, and I might have a few ideas/suggestions.

I would replace some of your cantrips (Thirst for Knowledge and Thoughtcasts) with Tezzeret's Gambit, allowing you to power up your mana rocks while drawing cards.

Also, there might be too many powerful win-cons in the deck. If you find this to be the case and are looking for more ways to add charge counters to your artifacts, I would recommend replacing Energy Chamber with Surge Node and adding in a few copies of Voltaic Key, to act as an additional counter source with either Surge Node or Coretapper.
