Daretti, Scrap Savant Discussion
5 days ago
A few additions, and cards you could take out.
Additions: Daretti, Scrap Savant , Storm the Vault Flip, Krark-Clan Ironworks , Skullclamp , Mana Crypt , Staff of Domination if you dont have anything against tutors: Enlightened Tutor , Whir of Invention , Kuldotha Forgemaster and Demonic Tutor
Cards i would take out: I would first take out Time vault and Tolarian Academy because they're not commander legal. I also don't like March of the Machines because it exposes your artifacts to creature removal/boardwipes. I would also take out the signets, because they don't really do enough. I would also take out Sapphire Medallion and Ruby Medallion , because you deck is mostly based on colorless artifacts.
Some other combos to get unlimited mana that you could put in the deck:
Power Artifact with Grim Monolith or Basalt Monolith , cause even though you can't copy the mana ability, you can copy the untap ability. Once you have resolved the first untap trigger, while the original trigger is on the stack, tap it for mana. This will net you mana, and you can do this as many times as you want. Another option is: Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal , you only need to have mana rocks that tap for 3 or more, and you have infinity mana.
Otherwise a really nice deck!
Here's a link for how i would make the deck: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/28-03-19-bAm-breya-etherium-shaper/

Here's a pretty good list of what I'd tweak:
Add - Breya, Etherium Shaper , Revel in Riches , Vampiric Tutor / Demonic Tutor / Diabolic Tutor etc., Forced Fruition , Master of the Feast , Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas , Stroke of Genius , Anvil of Bogardan , Howling Mine , Howling Golem , Copy Enchantment , Blinkmoth Urn , Broodstar
Remove - Daretti, Scrap Savant , Laboratory Maniac , Coveted Jewel , Flux (nobody will choose to do it), Psychosis Crawler (YOU don't necessarily draw enough), Alhammarret's Archive (costs too much mana for a do-nothing), Sunbird's Invocation , Oath of Teferi (too niche), Chandra Ablaze (on the fence, just a lot of mana), Propaganda / Ghostly Prison / Sphere of Safety (unless you're in a super-aggro meta)

Hey, looks good, nice upgrade so far of the precon :)
$50 upgrade to consider (the main theme of these upgrades are cards that give you repeatable value)
- Tezzeret the Seeker : repeatable artifact untap, tutor/put artifact you search for onto the battlefield and can be a win condition with artifacts. Tezz is the most expensive price card I'm suggesting, but he really does it all for artifact strategies.
- Daretti, Scrap Savant : repeatable draw/graveyard enabler/artifact reanimation, sac a Thopter/Servo to reanimate an artifact.
- Inventors' Fair : artifact tutor and life gain.
- Spire of Industry : rainbow land with an artifact or can make colorless mana.
- Great Furnace : red artifact land.
- Shivan Reef : Izzet Pain land, ETB untapped.
- Ash Barrens : basic landcycling or can ETB untapped to make colorless mana.
- Kuldotha Forgemaster : repeatable artifact tutor, sac Thopters/Servos to tutor for and put onto the battlefield an artifact.
- Sai, Master Thopterist : great repeatable value when casting artifacts, more draw with Thopters/Servos.
- Shimmer Myr : cast artifacts at instant speed, great with Unwinding Clock.
- Padeem, Consul of Innovation : protect artifacts from targeted removal and can be repeatable draw.
- Goblin Welder : instant speed repeatable artifact reanimation, sac a Thopter/Servo to reanimate an artifact.
- Treasure Mage : lots of good six or more CMC artifacts to tutor for.
- Memnarch : mana sink, turn your opponents permanents into artifacts and steal them.
- Bosh, Iron Golem : mana sink, sac artifacts you control to do damage to your opponents.
- Metalwork Colossus : good with Bosh since it can be recurred.
- Spine of Ish Sah : permanent removal, good with Bosh since when it dies it goes back to your hand.
- Nevinyrral's Disk : repeatable mass removal that's good with Planeswalkers since it doesn't kill them, can be reanimated or recurred since it's an artifact.
- Sharding Sphinx : army in a can with Thopters/Servos.
- Silver Myr
- Iron Myr
- Basalt Monolith : good with Tezzeret and Unwinding Clock.
- Hedron Archive : same as Monolith, but also sac to draw.
- Mystic Remora : one of the best sources of no mana cost repeatable draw in multiplayer Commander.
- Brainstorm : instant draw three for one mana.
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, you could upgrade the mana rocks that you're already playing? All except Sol Ring and Monolith of course. All the rocks I suggested ETB untapped. Dragon's Hoard for instance for the same mana cost has much more repeatable value than Vessel of Endless Rest . Hoard is both a mana rock and a draw engine. Mind Stone also has more value then Fire Diamond because Stone ETB untapped and can be sac to draw later on when you don't need ramp.
The mana rocks you play don't have to make red mana, it would nice if they did, but they don't have to because there's 31 Mountains here. Red mana is not a problem; the rocks just need to be able to make mana, colorless mana, for ramp to get Zirilan or another Dragon onto the battlefield faster. There's a lot of high CMC Dragons here; if Zirilan gets stuck in the Command Zone due to Commander cost or disrupted and you're unable to use his ability to cheat Dragons onto the battlefield then you want a backup plan to be able to cast Dragons. Mana rocks for ramp is a good backup plan. Semi-budget rocks such as Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus are good when playing lots of high CMC cards.
Cards like Mishra's Bauble and Urza's Bauble are fine, but I think they would be better as mana rocks. Blood Frenzy and Volcanic Offering are okay, but they're a one time shot spell and as a one time use they lose a lot of playability. One time effects from cards like Chaos Warp and Gamble are worth it because these effects for the mana cost are unique in red/powerful for red. Fling is fine if you have ways to repeatably cast it, but as a one time effect with only one Dragon it's very lackluster.
Consider Goblin Welder ? Welder, Feldon of the Third Path and Steel Hellkite have great interaction because Hellkite is an artifact Dragon. The tokens that Feldon creates are artifacts you can use one of these artifact creature tokens at instant speed with Welder to sac it to reanimate Hellkite or any other artifact. Welder can also be a way to reanimate an artifact sac/tuck outlet which you need on the battlefield otherwise the Dragon you cheat into play with Zirilan will be exiled end of your turn. Welder also helps to assemble the Monolith + Rings artifact combo. Solemn Simulacrum is very good with Welder and Feldon because he's an artifact who gives you value when he ETB and when he dies.
Cards like Welder and Feldon can benefit from cards that can put other cards into your graveyard. Consider adding Daretti, Scrap Savant , Faithless Looting and Gamble? Daretti is repeatable draw/graveyard enabler/reanimate artifact. Consider Tel-Jilad Stylus ? The most mana cost effective way to tuck a Dragon back into your library. Artifacts are honestly just as important for your deck's strategy then Dragons are.
Cards to consider adding:
- Dragon's Hoard
- Mind Stone
- Fellwar Stone or Everflowing Chalice
- Thran Dynamo or Gilded Lotus
- Goblin Welder
- Daretti, Scrap Savant
- Faithless Looting
- Tel-Jilad Stylus
Cards to consider cutting:
- Fire Diamond
- Vessel of Endless Rest
- Mishra's Bauble
- Urza's Bauble
- Blood Frenzy
- Volcanic Offering
- Whispersilk Cloak
- Voyager Staff

The first thing I think of looking at this new card is reanimator. The next thing I thought was "damn, why couldn't he be in Rakdos?" But anyway....
To me, he could really run well with Daretti, Scrap Savant , being a more efficient way of pitching more artifacts and drawing more cards. What I'm wrestling with is whether he is strong enough to run as the Commander, or in the 99 alongside Daretti or even Feldon of the Third Path . He just screams to pitch artifacts and then cast Scrap Mastery or start digging with Goblin Welder and Daretti.
Here's the drawback I see with him. Its hard to draw cards consistently and keep a full grip in mono red. At 4 CMC, you can get him out early, by turn 2 or 3, depending on how aggressively you can ramp (or what you ramp you can afford). Red does rummage really well, but even then, you are trading cards for cards, and not really gaining much. The Wheel effects will be really helpful once a hand runs dry. I would recommend running Book of Rass as another card draw option, and perhaps a Howling Mine as well.
I think you've got something good started here. Let us know how it plays out for you. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this deck grows.

@Austin_Smith_of_Cards I guess you're right about Ral. I figured he'd be decent card draw with his first ability and putting things in the graveyard wasn't terrible because I do have several pieces of recursion but I hadn't really thought about how bad his other 2 abilities really are. Until now having it written out in front of me I hadn't really counted how many instants and sorcery cards I had.
I had been looking at Magnifying Glass as well. I figured it was one of my weaker options but I liked that it also made clues (which helps up my artifact count) and those clues added to my card draw. So, I kind of looked at it as pulling double duty.
Do you really think Mycosynth Wellspring isn't worth it? I guess I don't have a ton of ways to sacrifice it but I feel like it's a good when using Trash for Treasure , Scrap Mastery , Goblin Welder , Kuldotha Forgemaster , and Daretti, Scrap Savant . It also is good to bring back with Myr Retriever , Junk Diver , and Scrap Trawler . Is it just that this isn't enough options, or are these just too narrow of circumstances?
What are your opinions of Vedalken Orrery ? I know giving my spells flash is good, but is it worth it in this deck? I always want to use it but I feel like it's always one of the last cuts I make in most decks, but I was hoping it'd have more value in an artifacts matters deck.

@DrValium My playgroup kind of has an interesting history with boompile, so I tend to avoid it unless I have a Daretti, Scrap Savant as my commander. I do like Lethal Vapors though but I am pretty sure I won't get to cards like that until I finish play testing other cards I have. (Haven't been able to meet up with playgroup recently)
@metalevolence That is mostly due to me having cards lying around that I haven't been able to use in a while. I am moving cards around to play test other things but haven't had a chance to meet up with my playgroup recently to try them out. I honestly will likely take those out and add a little more ramp or something to curve out the deck a bit better. I will definitely figure it out when I have more opportunity to play again.
@mtgmidget You should honestly try out Mirror March . It is more of a pet card that I threw in since I was going to toss a Krark's Thumb in anyway but it ended up being very fun to use. It is really fun using it with etb effects or even with something as simple as a Hellrider . Captive Audience also surprised me with how flavorful it felt with the style of deck. If you want to try out some cards for fun definitely worth throwing the few quarters in for em. I also really liked the Decoction Module suggestion because there were a couple energy cards I was looking into anyway.

Yeah building 4 colours suck. This build sticks to the theme of colored artifacts and/or artificers so I cut a lot of good stuff cards not related to this. Goblin Welder , Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer and Daretti, Scrap Savant are pretty good. I should probably include the B/R version of Daretti.
