You could definitely turn this into a combo-ish deck with some Myr Retriever s and Krark-Clan Ironworks . Arcbound Ravager could be a good wincon, especially if you put Inkmoth Nexus in the deck, and it would let you sacrifice the artifacts that draw when they die. I think just Atog would be better than megatog just because it comes down earlier. Grinding Station could be interesting; you could mill yourself, then use mishra and your artifacts in your hand to bring back all the artifacts from the graveyard, then mill the opponent. Sai, Master Thopterist could be good in long games for card draw and as a sac outlet. I don't think kasmina is super good ( Padeem, Consul of Innovation would be better here) and I think you should play more Etherium Sculptor s.

Altar of Dementia is looking pretty good for us. It has nice synergy with Colossus. Perhaps as a one of or maybe even replacing Grinding Station . More testing required.

I've been considering swapping out Phyrexia's Core for Buried Ruin or Academy Ruins . I feel like we have plenty of other sack outlets and getting back a key combo piece from the graveyard is more important.

I dropped Mind Stone as I found its value questionable. Mox Opal is better as ramp and enables the possibility of a pre-turn 3 combo but I don't have $500 for them so I filled the slot with the Myr Retriever . After quite a bit of play testing Myr Retriever is a must in this deck (3-4). I dropped one Scrap Trawler . You want to keep one around for the classic combos in this deck.

The London Mull Rule will help us a lot. It might even be better to turn this into a blue deck to protect our combo instead of trying to find the combo with Ancient Stirrings .

More on turning blue Reshape finds our pieces and has nice synergy as a sac outlet and triggers Ichor Wellspring . Whir of Invention a similar story.

There are some interesting possibilities in white too but I won't bring them up here. See the .

OUT: Grove of the Burnwillows IN: Fiery Islet if we go blue

OUT: Mind Stone IN: Myr Retriever

OUT: Phyrexia's Core IN: Buried Ruin or Academy Ruins

What about some number of Myr Retriever 's? Borrowing it from KCI 2.0.

It seems like it could fit well into our deck as a win condition with Grinding Station + Semblance Anvil (or Cloud Key ) and its a easier to assemble than our primary combo. Plus people would assume more than they do now that we are KCI 2.0


  • can pick any artifact out of our graveyard, I'm thinking if a combo piece gets destroyed or we want to restart our eggs engine

  • has good synergy with Grinding Station as a win condition; and other cards in our deck

  • is easier to assemble than our primary combo

  • distracts OPP from our other win conditions

I think Blasting Station , Grinding Station , or Arcbound Ravager would be better sacrifice outlets.

And Myr Moonvessel and Cathodion would also make good sacrifice fodder.

I recommend Liquimetal Coating with Goblin Welder , Clock of Omens on the field and Myr Battlesphere in the grave allows you make infinite 1/1s, infinite recur of any artifacts you have and infinite untap of any artifacts you have and with Grinding Station it's really good. I've started using Metalwork Colossus as it's usually a 4 mana 10/10 that can save your artifacts from exile!

maybe a sac outlet like Grinding Station can both enable a combo as well as be an alternate wincon as opposed to Altar of the Brood ?

Homelessguy on Faith can do so much

How about switching out Grinding Station for Blasting Station to get around Shuffle eldrazis?

But overall this deck looks amazing!

If you run Brass Secretary might I suggest Scarecrone as an alternative/another outlet? One less Mana on the activated ability and an extra ability on top of that. I'll also second the Grinding Station and Altar of Dementia adds since they can further you to your other combos.
