Efficient Construction Discussion

w33m4n on Artifact Midrange

Pabs4444, Efficient Construction isn't a turn 4 play in here. Ideally he would be turn 6 and on and only if needed to get those last extra bits of damage. Very useful late game for going a bid wide as I will be dropping 1-2 artifact creatures a turn at that point and as such getting 1-2 thopters for extra damage or blockers. Just gives me some board control. That's why there are at least 2 in here cause even if I dont hit the big guys I can use that to stall some time with bodies on the field to get the big guys out. Otherwise if you read description they are filler for no Karn.

Efficient Construction seems to slow for the deck. It doesn't do anything when it enters the battlefield, and turns 3 & 4 are crucial. Perhaps Trophy Mage instead to set up future plays?

Hey man, here to give a couple directions you could take with this baby. I've highly anticipated the release of the new jhoira, and here are some of the cards I would add in as some great all around includes.

Some cards here will be explanatory, but others I will defend here.

Icy Manipulator is a great way to tap down tricky flip lands, and other hard to deal with threats. If your aim is multiplayer control, I would add this in.

Renegade Map and other similar one drops act as a great way to cycle our library as well as build towards ascend if we go that route. 1 mana draw is powerful.

Squee, the Immortal 3 mana draw! Essentially an extra card in our hand.

Wildfire Eternal multiplayer brawl version of the dwayne the rock johnson. Get in there kid.

As Foretold Lets make our draws free? As close as we are going to get to consecrated sphinx in brawl.

Whir of Invention fabricate.

Jaya Ballard get those lands out of here. Probably just going to +0 her, but hey, it gets there.

Hazoret's Undying Fury Now this is a hot piece of tail. Resolve this, drop your hand, draw 4? It's the tabasco our "mid-range good stuff- not trying to combo kill you" deck needs.

Some Spell Pierce to protect your cast on turn 5 to ensure the one card this entire decks rests on can be cast and can be protected afterward. Your two mana counter is fine when you have two blue, but leaving one blue open is easier. Your deck is on a bit of a schedule. Best not to risk removal or you're done. Unless you want to cast it only on turn 6 or up. The other option is to add early targets to make them use up their removal. Or alternative enchantments to be played first. That Efficient Construction as a test run cast could work for turn 4.

Mechanized Production is just too slow in this. Tezzeret's Touch was in here but pulled for better go wide late option in Efficient Construction

w33m4n on Constructs unite!!!

Really like the build. Looks like one of the earlier version of my Artifact Midrange deck. Mine is just a smidge more streamline as far as just synergy to abuse Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp and Traxos, Scourge of Kroog.

Take a peak if ya want some ideas.

As a recommendation Metallic Mimic definitely belongs in this. It's a solid way to put some power to the bottom end or Efficient Construction to help go wide late game

Thanks for the comment! You're right, I confused the cast/etb trigger for Jhoira. Panharmonicon will come out. It was already iffy. 5 CMC is a bit pricey for Alhammarret's Archive. I'm thinking about whether I should include another wincon like Efficient Construction, some stax-ish elements like Cursed Totem, or maybe another cost reducer with Cloud Key. I should probably take out the Hellkite Tyrant/Mycosynth Lattice combo because it's just a little too cute, but I want to get at least one game in where I steal all of somebody's permanents ;).
