Nice deck (+1), kinda reminds me of a storm deck my friend played with Brain Freeze as the win condition. Do you think some bounce cards such as Retract and Hurkyl's Recall would work well here with Altar of the Brood/Grinding Station?

Just one more suggestion: Grinding Station. Grinding Station+Renata+Lesser Masticore also an infinite combo, - however it is true, that it does not have synergy with other cards in the deck.

Destructive Digger is not very good. I'd replace it with Blasting Station or Grinding Station.

TheSurgeon thats basically just a more expensive Altar of the Brood. In my opinion, Grinding Station requires a lot of building around, with a bunch of eggs like Chromatic Star, Sly Requisitioner, Sword of the Meek, Memnite and other 0 mana artifacts, Thopter Foundry, even KCI (I once brewed and played a deck built around this kind of stuff a year or so ago). Basically, its more at home in a different kind of artifact combo deck.

Grinding Station + infinite Myr tokens is mill win.

  • Interesting idea Heartless MyrThis is my version of the deck. Ignore the faithless looting ban and replace it with Cathartic Reunion or Merchant of the Vale. It loops 2x Myr Retriever and then uses an engine like yours to either Grapeshot or Grinding Station.
  • Your going to want as many ways to find heartless summoning for consistancy as well. Turns out heatless summoning decks arent as good without heartless summoning.
  • Im willing to help you out with advice, deck building or really anything. Ill do my best to help.

@ things85

I did indeed give Grinding Station a couple of turns in rotation in the flex slots. It's performance was very mediocre, but it could be a capable budget concept for decks facing less powerful metas. The biggest problem with an Emry deck being too reliant on dumping cards into the graveyard is the ever present meta staples that hate out graveyard strategies (Rest in Peace, Grafdigger's Cage, etc). Because of how easy it can be to disrupt combo lines that utilize the graveyard an Emry deck playing against the most competitive decks in the format is going to want a combo win line (or two) that don't require the graveyard. So while Grinding Station can perform it's function fairly capably, it's a less reliable alternate combo line in highly competitive settings.
