Oh, one last thing:

You mentioned you were looking for artifact hate?

I know a dragon that might be just what you need... A personal favorite of mine, Hellkite Tyrant!

JackBattle yes, I see the list isn't like I play it in paper at the moment. I definitely don't have power artifact and metalworker/staff anymore and I play the normal Earthquake in addition to rolling. Also Hellkite Tyrant because my meta is 90% nongreen and as a result very artifact heavy. Also running Expropriate as a win con now. I didn't like the actual combos in the deck because UR isn't really good at searching particular things and just playing individually strong stax pieces and one card win cons have worked better for me.

I have to update the list with the deck next to the computer because I don't remember all the differences correctly.

Hey, if you're looking for big beaters, you can look at eldrazis with Artisan of Kozilek.. In jund, you can have Kresh the Bloodbraided, Butcher of Malakir, Corpsejack Menace works with your commander and kresh.. Prossh, Skyraider of Kher Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar Protean Hulk, Combustible Gearhulk Verdurous Gearhulk Noxious Gearhulk.. Hornet Queen can make your ennemies attack into 1/1 deathtouch which is fun There's a lot of dragons stuff such as Hellkite Overlord, Hellkite Tyrant, Bogardan Hellkite Dragonlord Atarka..

There's some big stuff lovers such as Spearbreaker Behemoth, Genesis Hydra..

For big green stuff and ramp, you can look at my

Nissa, vastwood commander

Maybe some of those cards cost a lil' bit over 5$, i'm not sure on some prices, but I'll look for cards that benefits always having to attack or always be attacked from now on, and I might get back to you ! Good luck on your deck, Thantis seems really fun !

Help Needed for making this deck Optimized. Also I could have missed some combo potential, just started Magic in 2018. Thinking about adding more Infinite Mana Combos like Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth and Staff of DominationWalking Ballista for Mana sink/additional wincon.

Things that are on my "Cut"-List

Thran Dynamo Good Manarock but, I sometimes just need colored Mana more

One with the Machine Draws 3-4 cards most of the time and fits the Artifact Theme. But there is Better draw, just mention it.

Mana Echoes it's good with all the Thopter Stuff, but often it's just Mana that "Burns" away. Again Walking Ballista is an option

Sphinx Summoner 5 mana Tutor. Meh.

Sydri, Galvanic Genius combos with Aetherflux, but otherwise not useful in my opinion.

Vampiric Tutor Straight out of Budget, using proxy at the moment

Master Transmuter cheating mana cost is big. But my curve is low. Can't get Hellkite Tyrant or any of my Planeswalkers.

Trash for Treasure Sorcery Speed. Early Trash for Treasure isn't useful most of the time.

Cards I really want to play:

Walking Ballista

Darksteel Forge Protection

Mycosynth Lattice With the lattice, mostly none of your opponents play Artifact Boardwipes anymore. But High CMC

Treasure Nabber In a format that play so many Mana rocks this dude seems great. With KCI you can still sac the rocks for more mana

Memnarch Mana sink/combo with Pili-Pala combo to get Everything. High CMC

Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer Save half of your artifacts on a Destroy Boardwipe. Save important Artifacts for sacing Thopters

Storm the Vault It's land version is even banned

Semblance Anvil More reduce is good.

Mindslaver Hard to achieve but having his effect multiple times and controlling everyone is just a win.

Indomitable Archangel Protection, but high CMC

Blinkmoth Urn If you play an artifact Deck and your opponents don't it's just crazy

All in all for slower/longer games I need much more draw

Rhystic Study

Consecrated Sphinx

Notion Thief

But these aren't artifacts

Aether Spellbomb

Pyrite Spellbomb

Commander's Sphere are reusable

I've thought about running Hellkite Tyrant. I don't think I will ever get to 20 without running Mycosynth Lattice and my opponents don't generally run enough artifacts to supplement. Without being able to tutor for him I don't know how often I'd have those two on the board at the same time. I could pump and dump Saheeli's Directive but that again would require tutors to have any kind of consistency. I wish he was an artifact himself.

Avar, the Hoarder

Legendary Creature - Dragon


Avar gets +1/+1 for each unique token you control

When Avar deals combat damage to a player, gain control of up to X tokens they control, where X is Avar's power

He raided us for our valuables, then for our livestock, and then to enslave us.


Very similar to Hellkite Tyrant, which is a card I love, but legendary and very commander. I don't know if it's too strong though, or if mono red is too restrictive? Hope you like the idea.

Make an legendary artifact based around explosives, it can be a creature or not, up to you

You could do some real disruption with an early drop Hellkite Tyrant. You run enough tempo that with Mycosynth Lattice, you might even get a win!

If you have something that grants extra turns, that wincon becomes fairly difficult to disrupt.

I enjoyed looking at this build, so enjoy the +1!
