Ensoul Artifact Discussion
3 days ago
thanks a lot for your in-depth comment.
first off, I should REALLY update this list, because I've gone through even more testing and settled at a slightly different 75. Most notably, 2nd mainboard past is gone, as is dragonlord atarka.
So far, a 1/1 emrakul split has seemed good, although I haven't had much of a chance to rigorously test this ratio. However, my favorite recent addition to the deck (which is undocumented in this list) is Vraska's Contempt. this card can deal with indestructible creatures (like the Ensoul Artifact onto Darksteel Citadel which you mentioned, Rhonas the Indomitable, and more), as well as pretty much any other threat our opponents throw at us. the life gain helps a bit too.
I love the flip nissa suggestion (I don't remember why I digressed from it early in testing...should really try it again). nissa's renewal has been very underwhelming in my testing, and I found that sticking a kalitas gave me enough life gain to win against aggro decks.
thanks again for you suggestions! (I know I haven't addressed all of them, but I promise that I read them!) I'll certainly keep them in mind as I continue to improve the deck.

This looks pretty nice! Ive got a few suggestions that I think would improve it slightly.
That being said, Ensoul Artifact should be at least a two-of, mostly so you can try to bait control into removing or countering something not crucial to your wincon. It also gets around Fatal Push (not Path to Exile, unfortunately, but youd get a free land at least), a must for a deck that doesnt have anything else that cant be pushed.
In terms of the combo itself, Id add Battered Golem as a two of, replacing some of your other pieces (just for more diversity), and replace Reckless Fireweaver with Altar of the Brood. Altar is simply cheaper, harder to remove, and doesnt require any colored mana.
Also, I think you were into something with Grapeshot. Youve got to pay for it the turn you go off, but its far superior to Molten Nursery in terms of efficiency. Its only two mana, can still be cast for infinite damage, and even cant be countered by most spells, due to storm.
In terms of cards to cut, Accorder's Shield for the Relic, and Izzet Charm for scissors. As previously stated, Reckless Fireweaver should be replaced with Altar of the Brood, and at least three Molten Nursery with Grapeshots.
On a separate note, I like the use of Zephyr Scribe as a combo piece. Dont see that card often.
Thats my two cents, good luck with this deck!

want to get at least 3-4 copies of tezz in the deck too
also add Ensoul Artifact for redundancy
if you really want to try and push the 3 color aspect of the deck maybe add a blink subtheme in the deck that would abuse Hidden Stockpile
DUEL LANDS ARE YOUR FRIENDS, playing three colors makes things tough never want to get stuck on not having the right mana having lands that tap for 2 different colors makes things alot easier! if budget is necessary and dont want to put alot of money into your land base, you can always use a playset of Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse to fetch up your basic lands

Also, what is a good replacement for Spire of Industry as cutting it looks like it would chop the cost of the deck?

Thopter Spy Network is pretty good. If you run Springleaf Drum Ornithopter Memnite Grand Architect MindStone Metallic Rebuke Akroma's Memorial Ensoul Artifact Darksteel Citadel Reverse Engineer Qumolox Myr Enforcer Thoughtcast basically some of the more budget affinity stuff, and some anthem effects for your guys.

So first up, consistancy is pretty key. You should be playing 4 copies of Seat of the Synod, Great Furnace and at least 2 of Darksteel Citadel. For other lands, something like Spire of Industry is solid, or fastlands or duals or whatever.
Then 4 Frogmite and 4 Myr Enforcer. Big cheap dudes. Think of the artifact lands as tapping for 2 to pay for them. You can also probably do something with Scale of Chiss-Goria/Tooth of Chiss-Goria as enablers for Metalwork Colossus.
