If you're looking at running mana rocks and Powerstone Shard with colourless lands, have you considered making it a colourless combo/ramp list?

Cogwork Assembler, Phyrexian Metamorph Mirage Mirror Sculpting Steel Myr Galvanizer , Clock of Omens Dross Scorpion Grinding Station Paradox Engine Staff of Domination Pili-Pala Metalwork Colossus Unwinding Clock Voltaic Key Voltaic Construct Temple Bell etc.

Mono-brown has an incredible number of combo tools if you're dumping 6+ mana onto the field. You just need to figure out if you can balance cards to help you get 6+ mana and cards that combo with it. Powerstone Shard offers a lot of combo oppertunity, and being in blue gives access to Reshape etc.

Theres nothing quite like looking like March of the Machines beatdown, then abruptly instantly winning with Voltaic Construct on an animated Gilded Lotus. Clunky, sure, but a hellava lot of fun. There are all kinds of mixed strategies like that out there.

Blightsteel Colossus + Blade of Selves

Steel Overseer + Cauldron of Souls

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

Shimmer Myr

Prototype Portal

Shrine of the Forsaken Gods

I too ran a colourless/artifact deck (granted there are five eldrazis, but they aren't the big name ones). It has won due to an army of large artifact creatures and because of the Station Combo (Summoning Station -> Grinding Station -> Salvaging Station -> Blasting Station)

ersatz_olorin I'd suggest taking out Aether Spellbomb, I wouldn't use Blasting Station as a sac outlet, you need ones that don't tap, same with Grinding Station, and Summoning Station, it just makes 2/2s which aren't that useful.

I'd probably replace some of those with other sac outlets or other things, like All Is Dust, you have a lot of colourless artifacts so that might be good, Arcbound Ravager is a good sac outlet that grows, Ashnod's Transmogrant can be a combo enabler.

You can use Argent Mutation for the jankiness; turn an opponent's creature into an artifact, then force them to sac it. Liquimetal Coating does the same if you target a creature. But what if they can't be targeted? Glaring Spotlight and/or Arcane Lighthouse.

Faerie Artisans is a fun card.

Filigree Familiar, Junk Diver, and Workshop Assistant all get you an artifact from the grave when you sac them to Arcum's ability. Throw in Scrap Trawler to back them all up.

I blindsided my four opponents when playing my janky-Dagsson deck. I used Unwinding Clock with token generators (like Nuisance Engine), and I used creatures who drop in more artifacts (like Thopter Assembly and Myr Battlesphere), in order to tutor for fun combo pieces (Throne of Empires, Crown of Empires and Scepter of Empires) and the game-winning combo Stations (Summoning Station -> Grinding Station -> Salvaging Station -> Blasting Station).

Fun clue options? Grinding Station/Krark-Clan Ironworks Greater Gargadon Kuldotha Forgemaster Reshape Shape Anew Shrapnel Blast The Antiquities War Time Sieve Throne of Geth Trading Post Trash for Treasure

Can't think of anything else immediately. But there are a few options for cheating in Sundering Titan/Inkwell Leviathan/Blightsteel Colossus

Second Harvest might let you jank out a mass production win.

lagotripha on Glissa Traverse BG Midrange

I really feel like this has potential. The idea of using Glissa to get a lot of value out of midrange facing midrange feels strong, but I'm feeling like there need to be some major changes to make that choice valuable enough to make it work.

This isn't a minor tech change card, unfortunately, and thats what feels wrong about this deck.

There are a sets of cards worth looking at to substantially increase glissa value, make it more resilient, and help maximise the deck's power when facing other midrange lists (which is what it should want to do with glissa value).

So when warping the shell, lets break this deck down into 'blocks of cards, and try swapping them out. Glissa Traverse BG Midrange copy has my breakdown of the various packages- not perfect, but it gives you an idea of how fragmented all the different things you are trying to do is.

I'd try to look for some 'bridge' cards, that like seeing glissa, and that other packages like seeing. You could look for something like Arcbound Ravager synergies from some of the older, higher-on-the curve affinity lists, or try for Lotleth Troll/Throne of Geth or Grinding Station/Myr Servitor synergies. You could splash blue and become a Reshape toolbox deck, or Thopter Foundry combo, or red and become Trash for Treasure/Inkwell Leviathan, or go full lawful evil and make it a lantern control variant. There are oodles of possibility.

The big question is 'what do I want to retain about this shell'. The grindiness? Big creatures? Big value bauble recursion? Because depending on the answer to that question, there are a lot of possiblities.

Ca1m_down on Teshar, Bird Artifacts

I like the list, I'm brewing a couple different builds of Teshar (currently working on an equipment sram'o's version) and I've been liking Grinding Station and Altar of Dementia as sac outlets that can self mill to find components as well as be wincons.

My equipment list is not super hardcore combo because I want to get in for some birdie beats.

Looks like a fun deck. +1 Upvote

As for suggestions, have you considered adding some of the stations? Grinding Station and Blasting Station become instant win cons if you combo them with your two Myr Retriever along with either two Etherium Sculptor and or Foundry Inspector.

The combo goes: Grinding/Blasting station on the field along with at least 2 Etherium Sculptors/Foundry Inspectors. Cast Myr Retriever for free, then sacrifice it to a station to either mill someone for 3 or deal 1 damage depending on the station. Then cast another Myr Retriever for free and also sacrifice that one to a station, triggering its ability and bringing the first Myr Retriever back to your hand. From here you can cast the Myr Retriever you recurred for free again and sacrifice it after untapping your station. Repeat this process as many times was you want to either mill or kill everyone depending on which station you have in play.

Also if you're interested in Pauper (or just like powerful budget decks for casual play) you can check out my list here: Tainted Wins
