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.)

Darksteel Forge Discussion

Carsf on Mirror Gallery EDH

This seems like it would be solid as a minor theme in a deck that focuses mainly around clones.

Padeem, Consul of Innovation and Darksteel Forge will protect the gallery while it's out.

Alhammarret, High Arbiter, Dragonlord Atarka, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Wort, the Raidmother all have very good ETB effects that you can take advantage of even when you don't have Mirror Gallery out.

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus, Baral, Chief of Compliance and Rayne, Academy Chancellor, Thassa, God of the Sea, Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix all provide good effects that can get out of hand fast if they trigger multiple times. Kazuul is even funnier, because with even two of them you can look at making an army of 3/3s every time you're attacked.

Body Double, Clever Impersonator, Clone, Dack's Duplicate, Gigantoplasm, Mercurial Pretender, Phantasmal Image, Phyrexian Metamorph, Stunt Double, Progenitor Mimic, Sakashima the Impostor, Cackling Counterpart, Fated Infatuation, Supplant Form, Rite of Replication, Spitting Image, and Tempt with Reflections are all solid clones or clone effects. Feldon of the Third Path certainly wouldn't hurt either.

Finally, for when the legends just can't stick or you need other effects, sliding in good creatures that have useful ETB or static effects are useful. Acidic Slime, Reclamation Sage, Archaeomancer, Goblin Electromancer, Consecrated Sphinx, Elvish Visionary, Horizon Chimera and the like will all be quite useful.

Multiple Starke of Rath allows you to use one to kill a creature then use a second to kill the first. Very very conditional removal, but it would be pretty funny to use.

And, of course, like Eiti3 said, using cards like Transmute Artifact, Fabricate, Reshape, or Whir of Invention will allow you to get Mirror Gallery more consistently, though unless you go very hard on copying just Legends it shouldn't matter too much. I wouldn't recommend doing that, either, as anyone taking out Mirror Gallery could easily wipe most of your board.

I like the list. I run a Azorius deck myself but i use Brago, King Eternal instead of Gwafa, but i definitely considered him. My main win con's for the deck is bouncing everybody's permanents or infinitely milling them out with Brago, King Eternal+Strionic Resonator+Sol Ring+Altar of the Brood. Or getting infinite mana with Deadeye Navigator+Peregrine Drake or Great Whale and going from there.

I do like what I see in this deck. I like how you lock your opponents out and slowly get value over time to hit a win con. Have you considered running like a Nevinyrral's Disk+Mycosynth Lattice+Darksteel Forge combo? You can remove all your opponents permanents every turn. It's gross but you are playing azorius after all.

I would highly recommend getting a Cyclonic Rift ASAP. Best card in blue. Period. peacemaker is flavorful. and Magus of the Moat is always good. Darksteel Mutation and Imprisoned in the Moon is great removal for commanders. Loxodon Gatekeeper is annoying. Tamiyo is just pure value for what you're trying to do. Dovescape is just stupid. I would maybe try to include another win con? Like Entreat the Angels, Sphinx's Tutelage, or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. Great deck though!!

Hm, I have a few things in mind:Boros Keyrune - very mana intensive since the equips fall off every time it turns back into an artifact. Might not be worth. Alternately, Needle Spires is similar and a land. Could replace a plains or mountain.

Stuffy Doll and Pariah - Fun combo, but maybe not necessary? You do have enough artifact/enchant tutor to pull it off occasionally though.

Hovermyr - just not sure if it pulls its weight. Seems a little underwhelming for commander but I can see where it would be good when covered in equips.

Hope of Ghirapur - A bit less useful in a multiplayer environment in my opinion. Also, not really improved much by equipping since its main usefulness comes from sacrificing it.

Moonsilver Spear - It doesn't accelerate the Commander damage win at all, so I'm not sure it's terribly useful compared to Sunforger.

Also, how have Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Darksteel Forge been working for you? A lot of effects that deal with permanents can either bounce, exile, give -X/-X, etc to get around indestructible by the time either one is likely to come out. They are both super fun though, so there's that.

Cutting a few of those should easily make room for a Sunforger package and hopefully improve consistency a bit. Good luck!

Hello Friend. IMO.

Skysovereign, Consul Flagship for Goblin Welder A limited bomb...I am unsure if it carries it full mana cost in commander.

Darksteel Forge for Etched Oracle

Thopter Spy Network for Whipflare

Spire of Industry for Hellkite Igniter Terrible Win con IMO.

Kuldotha Forgemaster for Chandra, Torch of Defiance I actually believe she has little synergy and doesn't benefit the over strategy of the decks design.

Whir of Invention for Pia Nalaar

Scrap Trawler for Foundry Inspector Built-in recursion through deck design outweighs the benefit from the reduction in casting cost.

Hangarback Walker for Vedalken Engineer

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast for Faerie Artisans

Other random ideas:

Combustible Gearhulk

Anguished Unmaking



Mycosynth Lattice

JaceFromStateFarm on Memnarch Time!

1 week ago

Awesome list! Memnarch is really cool. I can maybe come up with a few suggestions:

Have you considered Darksteel Forge and Nevinyrral's Disk? They are good both separately and together. Mycosynth Lattice does cool things for you too, especially with the previous two cards, but is a tad expensive.

Also, Sky Diamond is ok ramp. Thran Dynamo is good too.

Oh yeah, Basalt Monolith is good with your Rings of Brighthearth and your Voltaic Key.

I would suggest removing Cancel for something like Arcane Denial or Counterspell.

Finally, maybe a few more win cons or ways to protect Memnarch are a good idea? It seems like if Memnarch gets killed too many times you will have a hard time winning. I think Command Beacon could help a bit but a couple more win cons or Memnarch protectors would help tremendously. Not sure if you are more of a combo guy or a huge bomb guy, but if you need suggestions let me know.

Good luck and have fun! Neat list!

I would suggest Mycosynth Lattice as it makes everything on the field an Artifact so Darksteel Forge can protect everything. Not sure about the shrines personally but if you can consistently get them they should be okay.

I personally would take out Myr Incubator and Merchant Scroll for a Memnarch and Grand Architect. Also if you can figure out a way to work Darksteel Forge in there, then everything will be hexproof and indestructible.
