Thanks for the comments!

bushido_man96 - I do already have Conjurer's Bauble in the list, but I forgot about Urza's Bauble. It's probably better than Ichor Wellspring in this build. I'll definitely swap those. Tangle Wire is interesting, but I am not really into playing mana denial type stax.

Daedalus19876 - Good point on Sheoldred. I just love the card so much haha. A lot of my removal package can hit multiple permanent types which is why I didn't feel the need for more specific removal, but I do have a Force of Vigor sitting around so I can see about adding it. Thornbite Staff is basically a board wipe with Glissa on the battlefield due to her deathtouch. Viridian Longbow is another option with her. I've seen Ashnod's Altar + Grave Pact + Hex Parasite in Glissa before, but not Attrition + Ornithopter. I'll have to consider it.

Gattison on Cow existence v. 0.1

Boza: Hey sorry for the delay, but I kept getting distracted by "real life" this week. Now that I've got time, I love the idea of using the cow! =D

In my playtesting, I honestly kept getting mana-boned a lot. Adding something like Ichor Wellspring or Faithless Looting, or maybe even Thrill of Possibility could help you draw into landplays.

Also, I felt like the Cow, Grave Scrabbler and Stinkweed Imp needed more ways to get "online." The only card in the deck that can discard other cards is Tortured Existence, and at 4/60th of the deck, if you don't see it, then I feel there should be a backup redundancy for the combo.

These artifacts allow you to discard: Implement of Malice, Necrogen Spellbomb and Patchwork Gnomes.

I was also thinking that Dimir House Guard could even replace Grave Scrabbler and be used to tutor the cow, which might lessen the need for discard outlets.

P.S. I think this deck may be listed as "Standard" because the site told me all my suggestions weren't legal in Standard.

McToters on Barrin, Master Wizard

Hey thanks! Much appreciated.

In a nutshell, the deck plays with a combination of two types of cards: the ones used to activate Barrin’s ability and the one’s we generally want to return back to our hand. In a dire situation we can target our opponent’s creatures but that is not the primary focus.

Cards like: Hatching Plans, Ichor Wellspring, Mycosynth Wellspring are budget cards thatbwork perfectly as sac fodder and give some sort of reward for sending them to the graveyard. Metallurgic Summonings and Genesis Chamber are great examples of ways to generate sac fodder at minimal cost as well. Toothy, Imaginary Friend and Matter Reshaper among others give a little more of a reward when sent to the graveyard.

Then there are the cards we want to target with Barrin’s ability. Basically just a bunch of stuff with delicious ETBs. Master of Waves, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Sower of Temptation, Myr Battlesphere and Torrential Gearhulk are prime examples of this. Large payoff if we can get them to bounce multiple times.

All the instants and sorceries are a basic round-up of counterspells and spells that will help syphon through the deck. When building this, the other person who helped me mainly used cards from Guilds of Ravnica and later. So mostly newer cards.

I’ve only played a few games with this and it’s definitely fun. Biggest problem i’ve noticed is I need more firepower. I’m thinking of adding in Kozilek and Jin-Gataxius just as some potential finishers. I’m not a blue player either but Barrin appealed to me for his obscurity and the fact his ability is really solid.

Thanks for commenting and I’ll check out your Naban deck to see if I can help you out!

AceofRoses - It is funny that you mention that card, because I recently cut the 2 Artificer's Assistants in place for two copies of Witching Well.

Perilous Research is honestly such a good card in this deck I couldn't even think about playing less than 4. Sacrificing things is hardly a drawback in this deck, as I use it for sac-ing Ichor Wellspring and Chromatic Star, as well as an instant speed sacrifice outlet for things that are going to the bin anyways.

I do not think that Arcbound worker is necessary - swap the 4 Darksteel citadels for 4 Tree of Tales and add 4 Carapace Forger. If you feel the need for more artifacts, swap 1 battle rage for Ichor Wellspring.

triproberts12 on Saving the Weatherlight (Gerrard budget combo)

3 weeks ago

Nice. I'm building a Gerrard artifact combo deck, too, but recurring the 7 versions of Spitemare with mass burn. I think you could make good use of a few of the tricks I've discovered.

What really drew me to Gerrard was his potential to completely flip the narrative on Boros' issues with ramp and draw. Memory Jar is basically a repeatable draw 7. If it's too pricey, be on the lookout for it in Commander Legends. Mishra's Bauble and Urza's Bauble are repeatable cantrips.

As for mana, Lotus Bloom is a repeatable Black Lotus, since once it's out, Gerrard brings it back with no time counters.

Some added spice: Scourglass is a repeatable Wrath. Scroll of Fate lets you return whatever you manifest face-up. Razia's Purification is just the most absurd Plague Wind, especially with artifact lands out. Same for Cataclysm. Follow it all up with a Geode Golem to keep wiping the board and replaying Gerrard every turn, and get Ichor Wellspring in there for some more card draw!

I feel like Trading Post could work in this deck somehow. All of the options are relevant; Life gain if you haven't quite made 50 life, 1 life for a blocker against aggro, returning your needed reservoir if it gets donked or extra draw in dire situations (Looking at you Ichor Wellspring ). Worth a thought at least.
