Implement of Examination Discussion

Alright, I can definitely switch out the Essence Extraction for three walk and one vraska. I can also add 2 Implement of Malice and one Implement of Examination. Definitely appreciate you stopping by and checking out the deck!

Only Run 2 of each monument since there are much more useful artifacts you can be running like Metalspinner's Puzzleknot Implement of Malice Implement of Examination Vanquisher's Banner Thaumatic Compass  Flip or Sorcerous Spyglass

Ditch the Essence Extraction for kill spells or exile like Walk the Plank Vraska's Contempt or even Hour of Glory for budget.

Roilmage's Trick - Not a very efficient spell, even with the draw. Giving creatures -2/0 for a turn at 4 mana can be better.

Terrarion/Meteorite - Either of these can be cheaper rocks. I'd add Izzet Signet and Fellwar Stone, or Izzet Cluestone if you need the draw.

Pendulum of Patterns - The 3 life isn't amazing, but if you're playing blue the 5 mana to draw one card is just bad. Implement of Examination at 4 mana to draw 2 cards is also not good. You still have cards like Windfall and Reforge the Soul you can add. Even a simple Divination is 2 cards for only 3 mana.

Vessel of Paramnesia/Fleeting Memories - The mill doesn't really seem to do much for you so the cost of drawing a card is too high.

Impact Tremors gives you another wincon. Murder of Crows out with your commander and Goblin Bombardment draws your whole deck.

I need to pull out 11 more cards to make room for some new cards to help tutor and get my combos going. Cards, I'm going to drop are Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs, Zuran Spellcaster, Rootwater Hunter, Tidewater Minion, Implement of Examination, Pieces of the Puzzle. That's all I think I'll pull right now. After I get these swapped out, I'll take another look at em

Cut some Implement of Examination for Pia's Revolution. That card will take this to the next level.

So I think this is a good idea, but I have some questions. And these are all meant to be constructive- I'm asking because I don't understand some of your card choices.

1- why are you playing Heart of Kiran? It seems to me it's in there as mana? The only creatures you have to crew it are ones that would be better attackers than it is... And you only have 5 walkers in the deck? That's a $14.00 mana rock and only when you have the Statuary out. And when you don't it's a $14 table ornament.

2- Why are you playing Bomat Courier? It dies to your own Sweltering Suns, or any removal your opponent is playing. Is the plan to use it as mana and then to maybe draw cards? It's too fragile for that many purposes. You could run any of the implements to tap for mana and then get you an effect and a card. Implement of Combustion, Implement of Examination or Implement of Malice all can tap for improvise and still be sacrificed for their benefit and a card if needed. Or even the Metalspinner's Puzzleknot- replaces itself in your hand when you play it, taps for improvise, sac for a another card.

3- What happens if you don't draw the Statuary? Or if gets blown up? Your other win conditions start at cmc 5. I think it's a mistake to have cut the lands. This is essentially a mid range deck with some expensive cmc cards that you want to cheat into play, but if you can't do that you're probably in trouble. And since you aren't drawing any real card draw, it could be find the lands if you aren't drawing them.

4- Why no card draw? With only 2 copies of Bolas, it's not likely you'll see him. Get some drawing going on so you can keep that hand full. You'll need the removal, but if you're all out, you need to reload. Reverse Engineer is the improvise card draw spell, or Glimmer of Genius to get deep.

I think this is a very cool. Just think it needs some polish.

Hope this helps.

Needing some tutor cards I see, Planar Bridge, Trophy Mage, perhaps combo with Implement of Examination, to draw cards until you can draw Planar Bridge to find your coatls. Then combo with Rishkar's Expertise to hopefully fill the board.
