Creature — Faerie Artificer
Whenever a nontoken creature enters the battlefield under an opponent's control, create a token that's a copy of that creature except it's an artifact in addition to its other types. Then exile all other tokens created with Faerie Artisans.

Faerie Artisans Discussion
3 days ago
Not only have I not tried Faerie Artisans , I didn't know it existed until you posted it, haha. Certainly a fun and possibly political card, but I personally prefer having control over what I'm cloning versus relying on what my opponents cast.
I am running a little light for card draw. That said, I have so much recursion & tutor in here that it's usually not a problem if I'm needing to replenish my mit. Mulldrifter is a house here so do I like the idea of having a second option with Cloudblazer . I ran PSZ for a while but ended up swapping her out due to her casting cost + reliance on my board state.

Did you ever try Faerie Artisans to get other players ETB effects when they play their creatures? Maybe not as good as the clones you already run?
What about Frilled Mystic for Mystic Snake #2? It's not fetchable off recruiter but maybe worth a card slot. Not sure how often you actually get into positions where you can keep bouncing a Mystic Snake to counter things that threaten your board state.
Do you ever feel like you need more card draw? Looks like you only have 2-3 cards that draw you cards. Every try or consider Cloudblazer , Prime Speaker Zegana , Rhystic Study etc? I do like your inclusion of Guardian Project in the deck.

Shouldn't Faerie Artisans be in this deck too? Seems really good

Hey triproberts12! Thank you very much for taking a look at the deck and for offering your suggestions. You are right, I think I can use more faeries and early ramp. I will see about acquiring copies of Notorious Throng and Knowledge Exploitation and see how they do. Tree of Perdition is a pet card of mine, but maybe it is time to see it go. Thanks for pointing out the math for Cryptic Gateway , that is definitely getting taken out for Faerie Artisans . This deck has gone through a lot of revisions. It started out as a half faerie / half trickery (steal or copy your stuff) shenanigans, because I didn't think I could get there and close out games with just the faeries. Rite of Replication was one of those cards and I usually always copy something fun from somebody else. I slowly baked in more removal over time (a meta call) strictly to get rid of fliers and big threats so I could push through damage. Maybe I should scale some of that back. Thanks again for your suggestions! I am definitely going to take all that you said into consideration when I tinker with it today and try and tune it to be more consistent.

Rise of the Dark Realms . Nuff said.
It also seems like you could maybe use some fodder engines with unusual token types. Things like Faerie Artisans , Ulvenwald Mysteries note that it will trigger even if you sack the clue to an atog, Tireless Tracker same, Smothering Tithe , Dragon Broodmother , Whisperwood Elemental .
Sweet deck. Would love to try it someday.

Hi, here are some cards which could be fun: Clone Legion , Faerie Artisans , Mirrorworks , Stolen Identity , Supplant Form . Expect Mirrorworks every card can copy creatures from your opponent which is double the fun then creating a copy of your own creatures.

For the good cards ... I'm not a regular Sydri pilot, but here's a penny for my thoughts on this fun commander. Tamiyo's Journal is a good beater that plops out artifacts/draw. Faerie Artisans / Thoughtcast / Thirst for Knowledge are really good for this deck, Dispatch / Stoic Rebuttal is always good for redundancy. March of the Machines is good in case your commander gets tree'd or stolen . Mechanized Production might be good for Phyrexian Metamorph / Master of Etherium /tokens from Sharding Sphinx / Smothering Tithe etc.
For the weaker cards ... Planar Cleansing could be replaced with Hour of Revelation . Profane Procession Flip/ Predator, Flagship could go because of its overall cost, and it doesn't do anything else over time or when it enters, and it doesn't fit the themes of the deck. Revel in Riches might be good with the amount of board wipes but you'll be targeted for it, it's an upkeep trigger (so people will have time to respond, and with sorceries). Treasure Map Flip is rather weak because it turns into a land so you can't abuse it like an artifact, and is 5 mana to eventually draw 3 or maybe 3+ cards. Treasure Mage does 'draw' and the best big artifact to abuse, but it's overall 9 mana unless you have Master Transmuter or something, and doesn't get any wincon that I can see. Ruthless Knave takes a lot of hoops to get through to draw or ramp, but a lot of my criticisms were at the treasure cards so you keep that theme then drawing more cards for no mana is good. Palladium Myr is not ramp, it's just sadness. Sphinx of the Steel Wind is expensive for a 7 turn clock on turn seven, but it's fun because it could fit your meta and is protected from the colors outside your color pie.
For win cons ... Aetherflux Reservoir / Staff of Nin / Caltrops are all all-star with this commander, and Tezzeret the Seeker could fetch caltrops/aetherflux but non paradox engine etc. If you're interested in a combo win, you could do Sword of the Meek / Thopter Foundry , or Sharuum the Hegemon / Phyrexian Metamorph and something to abuse the etb loop like Altar of the Brood / Genesis Chamber / Contraband Kingpin / Disciple of the Vault / Blood Artist / Marionette Master etc.

-1Gilded Lotus... extra turns are better.
-1Spellskite... boots and phasing are better.
-1Mirage Mirror... stealing is better.
-1Evacuation... you don't want to bounce stolen creatures.
...and maybe there's room for Blade of Selves?
