Darksteel Forge


Artifacts you control have indestructible. (Effects that say "destroy" don't destroy them. Artifact creatures with indestructible can't be destroyed by damage.)

Ive built a deck like this. Tamiyo's Journal is ok but i feel as if Howling Mine would do better. Yes it give everyone a card draw but for 2 mana casting cost it can really help get you some early game ramp. Staff of Nin is ok but Font of Mythos does the same without the 1 damage effect and at 6 casting cost unless you ramp to it early 1 damage i don't see being effective, where as Font of Mythos is 4 and gets you the card draw you need. Cloud Key might be a good idea to have also to reduce costs. When I build this deck i took bits from a deck on here and it proved very useful to see what kind of combos colorless creatures and artifacts can be used together. Its called "Walking Fridges and Stuff" look it up on here. I cant get that link to work for decks. If you're running Darksteel Forge you might wanna run Mycosynth Lattice so everything you control is indestructible.

Thanks for the help! I dropped Mana Drain and added the Darksteel Forge. Should help the cost of the deck overall and and got rid of some of the counterspell I had in the deck. I will take a look at your deck to see if there is anything I want to add.

I think your deck needs a lot less control and a lot more interesting artifacts; to make all your artifact support much more useful. I'm running a very different esper artifact deck, but you might get some ideas from it. It also uses some control but a whole lot more 'facts. Check it out here.

Also, your deck is missing one critical card to make all your wipes a lot more powerful (especially when combined with Mycosynth Lattice): Darksteel Forge.

Hope this helps! Would really appreciate feedback on one of my decks if you have time.

Happy gaming!

I ran Akiri and Bruce Tarl as my partner commanders for a long time with great success (it was also one of my favorites). I'm just going to throw out a bunch of things that worked for me and some of my thoughts.

I am wondering about the Eldrazi. They take A LOT of mana. Red/white is usually struggling to get that much mana and I'm not really seeing some of the cards I would have expected to really put lands on the battle field and or cheat them in. Deathrender, Burnished Hart, Pilgrim's Eye.

For equipment you are running the swords. They were too expensive for me. Some of the equipment that I was using include: Godsend, Prowler's Helm, Trailblazer's Boots, Assault Suit this is more for sacrafice protection but it is hilarious to see somebody use your commander to kill off somebody else, Mask of Memory.

Protection: Darksteel Forge yeah, yeah i know i just said the eldrazi were expensive mana wise. Meekstone Akiri has vigilance. Reconnaissance is abuseable for non vigilant creatures.

Removal: If you are running sunforger I cannot recommend enough Mistveil Plains please note it is also a plains card so it is easier to tutor. I would also suggest adding a bit more artifact/enchantment removal. Fate Forgotten is cheap and fetchable with sunforger. I would also highly recommend at least a couple of boardwipes. There is a boardwipe in white that kills non white creatures and Nevinyrral's Disk has some fun interactions with Darksteel Forge if you go this rout I would also pick up Armory Automaton for a beater.

General utility: Mimic Vat is one of my auto includes in everything. Godo, Bandit Warlord is just awesome in this deck, Open the Vaults, Thought Vessel. Depending on meta I would look at some graveyard hate too. I was running both Rest in Peace and Tormod's Crypt but there are a bunch of recursion decks I play against regularly. Hellkite Tyrant is another possibility depending on meta.

Good luck with Akiri. -Tree

also Darksteel Plate survives those and Darksteel Forge would make a Jokulhaups usually end with only zurgo and his equipment, usually wins you the game too and doesnt hit your enchantments :)

and if you can afford it Crucible of Worlds lets you replay the lands you blew up, and also avoids them with forge out!

Qolorful Yes please. Just a heads up, though, Darksteel Forge is up there.

I'm surprised in artifact control you aren't using Scourglass, Time Sieve, Spear of Heliod, Norn's Annex, or Darksteel Forge. All fantastic cards with sharuum! Good luck in your brew, if you want I can do more looking into other fantastic artifacts to go with sharuum

You're right about Mycosynth Lattice + Vandalblast but, I would like to keep Darksteel Forge in this list, primarily for my playgroup. Maybe i should reconsider my decision about Darksteel Forge, I'll try your idea.I will consider notion theif & Recruiter of the Guard, I don't know why i didn't think of running those.
