Disciple of the Vault Discussion

If you want to reduce casting costs you could always use something like Semblance Anvil. The biggest issue I see however is that while you can most certainly bring back your creatures, so what if the creatures don't make a big difference. If you want to run a deck like this I would suggest running more high value 3 drops or cards with X in their mana cost like Hangarback Walker or Walking Ballista. Then if you want to cycle cards in and out of your graveyard with Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, Arcbound Ravager is a good option too. With all the sacrificing Disciple of the Vault. Master of Etherium is also quite nice in artifact deck. The only issue now (besides price of course) is that its kind of just a janky Affinity deck, which I don't think you want. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I'd rather drop Memnite than Ornithopter since the latter is much better with Plating. Still, running both makes sense in a list centered around Ravager and/or Steel Overseer. Personally, I think Disciple of the Vault is weak without a combo or some significant token generation to back it up. Galvanic Blast would probably deal more damage. Etched Champion too is likely to get in some damage while putting less strain on your colored mana requirements.

@RedmundR2 I get what you are saying. I tried to make most of the artifacts as cantrips, as well as having Thoughtcast, to try to dig to them. The backup plan with the deck is using the burn package along with Disciple of the Vault as an alternate win con. I will continue to test with only 3 Pia's Revolution, but I will probably bump it back up to 4 if it is too inconsistent.

Hey :) could you add a description what exactly are your wincons? I see the Dramatic Reversal Isochron Scepter Combo for Infinite Mana With rocks. But what do you do if the scepter is removed, and so your Dramatic reversal. What do you imprint then?

Muddle the Mixture tutor for Isochron and dramatic reversal, but what to get if they are already removed?

Mercurial Chemister why him? I see the value with isochron but drawing two cards for 6 Mana in a full turn cycle or 4 cards for 7mana in two turns doesn't seem that god, correct me if I'm wrong I don't play that long.

Why Commander's Sphere Manalith ? Depends on what you need them for, Pillar of Originsnaming human works for breya and some cards and costs 1 less. Coalition Relic is better than Manalith in every way. I would prefer a Chromatic Lantern over manalith,too because there is no downside to do so.

Rune-Scarred Demon I know he's good, and works with the deadeye. But Diabolic Tutor is 3 Mana cheaper. Not sure about that but seems more reliable because you can keep open Mana. Or maybe Lim-Dul's Vault

Open the Armory it's just two cmc I see that. I assume we get the Nim Deathmantle Most of the times, or Sword of the Meek if we have the foundry ? Skullclamp if we really need draw?

What if Zulaport Cutthroat is removed?

What's With

Reshape - Tutor

Altar of the Brood - additional wincon if Zulaport dies

Tezzeret, Artifice Master - for Mercurial chemister maybe? Draws two cards most of the time without need to wait.

Cyclonic Rift - way too slow, I see that, but is a huge drawback for your opponents

Blood Artist - Zulaport again

Impact Tremors - Zulaport again

Disciple of the Vault - yep Zulaport again

Saheeli's Directive - semi-Loot/Tutor, awesome with Infinite mana

Time Sieve - with the ability of making xfinite thopters this can be awesome.

Tezzeret the Seeker - tutors, imo better that the demon, because he can do it Multiple times if you know exactly what you want and have blockers. Worst case next turn if he survives is Tutor for 1 CMC or ramping

Myr Retriever - maybe Scrap Trawler for more recursion?

All in all I like that Deck pretty much, but for Budget reason I'm gonna cut vampiric tutor for me.

As soon as it's build together I'll test it.

Hope for an answer:)

you can go for an infinite combo to finish off the opponents for your alternate win condition.

Sharuum the Hegemon+Sculpting Steel/Phyrexian Metamorph+Disciple of the Vault would be infinite damage you can also do a basic infinite combo like Ashnod's Altar+Master of Waves+Blood Artist+Nim Deathmantle this is infinite damage as well as long as you have a devotion to blue of 2 or more so you will need at least 1 blue symbol beyond the Master of Waves if your devotion is 3 or more and you don't have the Blood Artist you will have infinite tokens instead. I doubt if these are combos you are looking for but I don't really play esper so I am not sure what else their is out there.

Yes Myr Battlesphere combos with Ashnod's Altar / Krark-Clan Ironworks + Nim Deathmantle BUT you can ALSO use Eldrazi Displacer instead of Nim Deathmantle because Ashnod's & Krark have been errata'd to add colorless and not just generic mana.

AND you also get 1/1 Myr tokens because you don't NEED to sac them all to generate enough mana to blink/recur Battlesphere. So, you create 1/1 Myrs, then or however much you need, but yeah, you get infinite Tokens then Mana, as well as ETB/LTB triggers. Or mana then tokens (whichever you wanna do first lol)

Not sure if the infinite tokens was implied in your comment, but now everyone knows

I'm really liking the recent comments. I just updated my list with some of your guys' card suggestions.

@ejikazuma .....wow..really? I never knew that about Grand Architect and Nim Deathmantle That kinda sucks..a lot.. But, I have been thinking of cutting him for a while, so maybe that's all I needed to read to make the decision.

Also yeah, Myr Battlesphere is great in this deck. I've had him in for a while. So much so that I've considered putting in Precursor Golem as well, BUT..Battlesphere combos with Time Sieve + Academy Ruins ALSO..so..yeah lol I don't think I would take out Thopter Assembly though. That's just me.

@mtgApprentice21 YES! Mana Vault is great! I think many people overlook the fact that you can combo with Mana Vault, Sol Ring and Mana Crypt in this deck! lol

Also, that's a good point with Crucible of Worlds and the artifact lands...that's pretty dirty lol

Has anyone tried using Mirage Mirror in this deck yet? Has worked out pretty well for me so far ;)

Might also be a long shot, but anyone tried Mairsil, the Pretender??

Maybe some of you might wanna check out my list because I haven't really had any of the issues you're talking about. The only real issue I've faced is being color screwed..which brings this to mind...

Has anyone here tried or seen Breya lists that barely run any colored spells? Like, strictly artifact based combos??? No Felidar Guardian or any of the wincon cards such as Impact Tremors/Zulaport Cutthroat/Disciple of the Vault/etc, just strictly colorless artifacts that combo plus some tutors?

Though most of the deck is colorless artifacts, I do feel like I get screwed on color sometimes. And also if you have suggestions for my list, be my guest. I'm down to try out new cards.
