True, but since most of the artifacts are 0-3 cost and there are not many high cost ones there's no need for a Mycosynth Golem to be played, even tho it would make the deck even more stormy (except there's one just around sad and unplayed). If you want to cheat in the few high cost spells I would play Thran Temporal Gateway since it's budget, but it is also unnecessary and has little synergy with the deck. The other substitute is just to play something that would decrees the cost of your artifacts like Foundry Inspector.

Except for etherium sculptor, you have no turn 1 - turn 3 plays. Plus, you have no way of interacting with the opponent. You will probably be dead before you even cast a sphinx. Add some removal, cards with cheaper mana cost, and more ramp Pentad PrismFoundry Inspector

Terribleperson No worries always glad to help!

Well first thing is what budget are you on? There are plenty of ways you can build Jhoira, either as a combo, artifact synergy, storm, stax, etc. she has so many variations.

I'll just list some cards that should be cut imo just because it might not do enough during the game to be worth a slot and there are probably better options.

Cards to be considered cutting:

Ancient Stone Idol Does absolutely nothing but be a huge beater, if going for a beater there are other better options.

Bosh, Iron Golem While he is decent, if your looking to fling artifacts for damage this might not be the way to go with the current cards your running.

Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer He cost quite a bit for some underwhelming effects in your build.

Metalwork Colossus Same as Ancient Idol, there are better options.

Thopter Assembly There are other options if going for making more artifacts, you aren't running a thopter synergy build.

Here might be some additional cards that might fit in:

Etherium Sculptor

Everflowing Chalice

Shimmer Myr

Foundry Inspector

Trinket Mage


Whir of Invention

Voltaic Key

Semblance Anvil

Thought Vessel

Hope that helps!~

Great list, had a few questions:

How do you feel about the other cost reducers you could put in this deck, such as Jhoira's Familiar, Foundry Inspector, and Herald of Kozilek?

How does Winter Orb fit into your game plan? When do you play it, how do you play around it, and would other cards like Static Orb be a worthy addition to the deck?

Thoughts on Grand Architect? I know there aren't a lot of creatures in the deck, but at worst it can tap itself and Jhoira for mana, and go infinite with Isochron Scepter.

I'd recommend adding Foundry Inspector and Inspiring Statuary just to help you get out your higher CMC artifacts. I know it's a bit redundant but any way you can cheat cards out will help a ton.

I would recommend removing all your creatures Jhoira's Familiar, Goblin Welder, Etherium Sculptor, and Foundry Inspector. You should also add more of all said creatures. I would take out Akroma's Memorial, Act of Treason, and Tectonic Instability. For lands, I would add Inventors' Fair, and Buried Ruin. Also Strip Mine and Wasteland is always good. I would recommend having a better counter spell than Essence Scatter, but I don't know what format your in, so i'll just suggest the best ones. Force of Will is very good, and so is Mana Drain. Overall, I would add White, and define a win con.

IMMG54 it would give infinite deaths, but are there any other benefits? I suppose if you had out Foundry Inspector you could net one mana each time or use grave pact to clear the board

ShaharRyu on $40 Deck: Raff Capashen

Hey, Raff as a commander basicly gives you a Vedalken Orrery for most of your deck if done right. I enjoy building budget EDH decks for myself and my friends so I will gladly give advice.

To start with, it seems that you have listed Padeem, Consul of Innovation into your deck twice. Into that matter, playing that card means you are going into artifacts so i would recommend more of them. Metalwork Colossus is both a budget creature and a little bomb at flash speed. Being able to cast it easily as a 3-5 mana creature at the eot of your opponent basicly giving haste to a 10/10 which includes self recursion. Into that plan Chief Engineer, Filigree Angel, Foundry Inspector, Myr Retriever, Sanctum Gargoyle, Scrap Trawler, Soul of New Phyrexia and Sharding Sphinx would bring a lot of gimmics into the game and Treasure Mage as a handy tutor. This cards ain't too expensive too so they miught come in your budget.

Regarding your mana base, I can't help but wonder why haven't you included Sol Ring. Sure it is around 3,5$ but it is such a good card at any stage of the game I just can't think of a commander which wouldnt want it. I discourage the use of Gold Myr and Silver Myr thou their vulnerability towards removal and instead I would propose the addition of Sky Diamond and either Commander's Sphere or Darksteel Ingot. If it is in your budget, Burnished Hart and Thaumatic Compass  Flip could help a great deal, as well as Esper Panorama or Bant Panorama.

I suggest running Bident of Thassa or Thopter Spy Network as reliable sources of card draw and Thran Temporal Gateway to cheat some big butts into play.

Finally, I would recomend some more answers to problems on the board. Disenchant, Dispatch and Oblation may come in handy, both manawise and $$$.

GL and wish you good luck
