Foundry Inspector Discussion

_Kane_ on Breya, the Thopter Queen

Hello Friend. IMO.

Skysovereign, Consul Flagship for Goblin Welder A limited bomb...I am unsure if it carries it full mana cost in commander.

Darksteel Forge for Etched Oracle

Thopter Spy Network for Whipflare

Spire of Industry for Hellkite Igniter Terrible Win con IMO.

Kuldotha Forgemaster for Chandra, Torch of Defiance I actually believe she has little synergy and doesn't benefit the over strategy of the decks design.

Whir of Invention for Pia Nalaar

Scrap Trawler for Foundry Inspector Built-in recursion through deck design outweighs the benefit from the reduction in casting cost.

Hangarback Walker for Vedalken Engineer

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast for Faerie Artisans

Other random ideas:

Combustible Gearhulk

Anguished Unmaking



Mycosynth Lattice

Eiti3 on no man lands

You beat me to it. As soon as I saw this little guy I wanted to make another landless EDH deck but I see I was far too late. Although, there are a few things I'd change...

  • Sensei's Divining Top: Allows for that easy access for when you don't have what you need.
  • Chromatic Sphere, Chromatic Star, Terrarion, and I could've sworn there was another one like Terrarion: These help you draw and keep the mana you have.
  • Trading Post, Ichor Wellspring, Mind's Eye, & Book of Rass: Need that draw. You're severely lacking.
  • Krark-Clan Ironworks: Super quick and easy ramp for how many 0-drop artifacts you run.
  • Scrap Trawler: This guy alone should quell all doubts for the the previous suggestions. Sac Terrarion to itself to get back a Lotus Petal, etc.
  • Metalwork Colossus: Much like your other affinity creatures, but comes with his own recursion system!
  • Cloud Key & Foundry Inspector: Further lower the costs of your artifacts alongside your already Helm of Awakening and Semblance Anvil.
  • Cultivator's Caravan: Possibily the best 3CMC mana rock since Coalition Relic.
  • Kuldotha Forgemaster: Sac 3 0-drops to get Mycosynth Golem. Worth?
  • Golem Foundry: While not being the best, dudes are pretty great and they easily sac to Krark-Clan Ironworks when needed.
  • Prototype Portal: Pop out endless Sol Rings thanks to Paradox Engine generating infinite mana or you know get Gonti's Aether Heart or Ugin's Nexus out over and over again for self-giving extra turns.
  • Inspiring Statuary: Put this one on the side burner in case you want to run more eldrazi or whatnot. This itself is a mana rock that only spends it's mana for non-artifact spells, but in a more non-heavy artifact deck, it could work wonders. Just keep it in mind if you decide to run more non-artifact threats.
  • Lifeline: While it may benefit your opponents, it keeps not only your creatures alive but allows you to hit with Hope of Ghirapur without the need of recasting with the commander tax.

    It looks to me that Trophy Mage doesn't summon in any of the crucial combo-starting artifacts from this deck. I'd suggest replacing maybe two of her, as well as a Foundry Inspector, with Reverse Engineer, Consulate Turret, or maybe even Fabrication Module.

    Actually HairyManBack with Scrapheap Scrounger, Foundry Inspector, and Chief of the Foundry providing buffs I usually have plenty of Creatures that can Crew 3 on their own.

    TheFirstWarbird on Atog's Revolution: Modern Budget FNM Deck

    I appreciate that, although I really like the surprise of Slag Fiend. Pia's Revolution will be a target, and whilst I agree that adding more 0-cost artifacts would add to the aggressive nature of the deck, I think having somewhat of an alternative win-con, rather than just going flat-out Atog does help with the deck's flexibility.

    Similarly, if I can't get a Revolution on the field, I have no way to get the artifacts back from the graveyard. Slag Fiend provides an interesting opportunity to utilise artifacts that Atog and Ravenous Intruder have already used to pump up the 1 mana monster.

    The Foundry Inspector also help reduce the cost of Bomat Courier and Implement of Combustion, helping card draw which otherwise the deck lacks in. Reducing the cost also helps to loot them with an Atog and Pia's Revolution in play, for example.

    Perhaps I could go down the amount of copies of the Fiend in place of Faithless Looting, as you've suggested?

    I'm really enjoying the conversation and suggestions, you guys are awesome! Feel free to +1 if you like too :)

    I would just cut Foundry Inspector your artifacts are costing u nothing now so why cast a 3 costing artifact that doesn't do anything for you.

    @Deltacobra Thanks for the comment!

    Yeah, Faithless Looting seems awesome not only for digging, but also dumping artifacts for Slag Fiend if necesssary. I'm not sure about Shrapnel Blast - it does trigger Pia's Revolution so could be cool, but I'm not sure where I'd fit either cards to be honest.

    Maybe I'd go down a Foundry Inspector, but the Inspector really helps crack and loop the Implements, which makes really useful card draw and Revolution triggers. Thoughts on what I could go down? Much appreciated!

    Oh, I get it! Foundry Inspector is necessary for Grinding Station to win without two Myr Retriever.
