Crypt of the Eternals Discussion

I'm also trying to build a Traxos deck, the lands in your build can all be collorless. You should consider filling it with utility lands. Here you go:Arch of Orazca - Cabal Stronghold if you run only swamps with this. - Cascading Cataracts and Dunes of the Dead there is this white saga that destroys all lands after all. - Cradle of the Accursed - Crypt of the Eternals 1 life, it's something... - Endless Sands - Field of Ruin - Grasping Dunes - Hashep Oasis - Hostile Desert - Ifnir Deadlands - Inventors' Fair Basicly a must run in this deck - Ipnu Rivulet - Scavenger Grounds - Sequestered Stash - Shefet Dunes - Sunscorched Desert - Zhalfirin Void -

As far as lands go, there's also Crypt of the Eternals, and cards like Ifnir Deadlands are still viable since a good portion of the lands you're playing can do mana fixing, like Painted Bluffs or Spire of Industry, though that might break the mono-neutral rule.

I believe Crypt of the Eternals is illegal in your deck due to it being able to produce red. Granted this is off normal EDH rules and im not 100% if those some color identity rules are applied for Brawl or not.

Here are my thoughts.
I understand why you have Crypt of the Eternals, but it can be quite crippling in the early game.
I think you'd be better off replacing all copies with Evolving Wilds.
26 lands are too many for this kind of deck. I'd lose an Island, and a Swamp.
You have nothing to interrupt your Opponent's plans.
has brilliant removal, such as Fatal Push, Unlicensed Disintegration (an excellent card in this deck; you should do 3 damage most of the time), and Vraska's Contempt.
Add between four and six of these to your deck. Maybe two of each?
has access to Counter spells, which you should take advantage of. Probably in a Sideboard, which all competitive decks need.
Throw in some of these cards: Essence Scatter, Lost Legacy, Negate, Vizier of Many Faces.
I'm not sure how competitive you can make this deck. It spends a lot of time warming up to its win conditions.
Try putting together a Sideboard, and then I can take another look, if you like.

Update: Dimir Infiltrator out for Whir of Invention as the flexibility of tutoring any artifact into play with instant speed is stronger. Kess is out for Conjurer's Closet, a card I've wanted to try for a while. I'm not expecting it to be very effective, but I do intend for it to be fun. The third change is Crypt of the Eternals out for Mortuary Mire. I thought Crypt would provide some utility to filter, but being down a color is just bad. I would rather have a utility land that gives me another source of recursion.
Some playtesting things: Timestream Navigator is INSANE. Even one activation is often good enough, after which you don't really care if it dies since it gets recurred anyway. The copy effects of Body Double, Phantasmal Image, and Vizier of Many Faces, I have found, allow you to create infinite turns with an empty library if they (2+ copies or 1 + original) are in play copying Timestream Navigator. Every turn, one copy can go to the library after you play the one that was the last card in your library, so you will always have card named Timestream Navigator in play. It came up one game when a player cast Psychic Spiral on me when I had 25 cards left. With an empty library, I activated Phantasmal Image copying Navigator on my upkeep to draw it and replay it, creating the loop.

You will probably want to get more copies of the uncommons to help your deck be more consistent. Admiral Beckett Brass would fit well, as well as Rigging Runner. Let us know what kind of budget you have to improve it, or if you have some sort of value card you could trade to people at your lgs to get more of the cards you need. I think Kitesail Freebooter Siren Stormtamer and Lightning Strike all need to be play sets. I would try and cut commons, especially non pirate ones. Crypt of the Eternals would be worth checking into since they are cheap and could fix your mana in a pinch. Desperate Castaways should probably come out as well, it has some value but if you arent churning out treasure you onlys have 3 artifacts, and there is a good chance you will want your treasure to cast spells.

The deck does run better with energy and Aether Hub. Thank you Hyperalgialysis. Also thanks backinajiffy Essence Extraction is helpful. I'm not 100% sold on Crypt of the Eternals but I'm keeping it in for now.
I had several games were I just didn't get the needed artifacts to cast Indomitable Creativity. So, I completely revised the deck as a new Mardu version. I think both are about as effective, and fun in each there own way. Here is the link to that deck: Creative Mardu Jank in Ixalan
