Efficient Construction Discussion

Answer has to be no since Efficient Construction is only triggered by the "CAST" of an artifact. You would have to change a large portion of the deck to include that card. Plus the card is kinda slow to use.

razelfarkAh perfect. Thanks for that. Now on that note, do you think it would be worth playing Efficient Construction in here somewhere as well?

Animation Module doesn't seem like a great fit here, the only thing that gets +1/+1 counters is the Angel of Invention. Whirlermaker while being a good source of making tokens over and over again, its not really fast enough. Making a 1/1 flyer turn 4 isn't too great with all these dinosaurs going around. With only 5 artifact spells, Efficient Construction also doesn't seem that great. Servo Exhibition while only working once is a bit faster for producing the tokens. also, if you're going to use Release the Gremlins on yourself, something like Servo Schematic gives you a bit more value. If you're sticking to Jeskai I'd say pull out the Efficient Constructions and the animation modules for servo schematics and servo exhibitions. I personally think you could do a lot better in a token-aristocrat deck with an esper build, since you have access to Hidden Stockpile, Tezzeret the Schemer (Since it seems like artifact tokens like servos are best if you're going wide),Tezzeret's Touch, Marionette Master, Bontu the Glorified (for aristocrat style), and Oketra the True since you're going wide with servos. Mostly stuff that can generate tokens/ artifacts and help you hurting your opponent for killing your little servos or just saccing artifacts in general..

Far too much artifact support and not nearly enough artifacts. For example, you have twice as many Efficient Construction as you do actual artifact cards.

You're running more than enough 0/1 CMC artifacts to support Trinket Mage/and or Artificer's Intuition. Great way to find those silver bullets you need or just grab an artifact land. I run those two in my Breya deck along with Dispeller's Capsule & Nihil Spellbomb (over the Relic since I don't want to nuke my GY). Hex Parasite is also a neat piece of anti-planeswalker/counters in general tech that you can search up. Parasite can be niche, but its a pet card of mine. :)

Efficient Construction is the only real tribal Thopter card you don't seem to be running. And you have so many ways to trigger it!

Oviya seems too slow for token generation. Taps for 1 token, requires 3 mana per token. Maybe some stuff like Efficient Construction and some more artifacts?

Yeah i can understand the avoidance of push for money reason

I would do this change to 4 herald, but just 1 tidy and maybe 1 Efficient Construction or if you see that your thopter count is large enough while playing you could try 1 Mechanized Production as an alt win

I just added 3 Embraal Gear-Smasher to my deck. I run no rares in my deck and when it takes off it works amazing. Has been a fun deck to play around with and tweak. I run 4 Reckless Fireweaver just for the sheer joy of getting more than one out. Two out on the field with Efficient Construction and Embraal Gear-Smasher is brutal when you drop in a Servo Schematic or Fireforger's Puzzleknot Do the math on that. I also took out my Whirlermaker and added more Woodweaver's Puzzleknot just to get the life gain and three more energy counters for the Whirler Virtuoso So much you can do with this deck and it is cheap and effective. Good luck.
