Inspiring Statuary


Nonartifact spells you cast have improvise. (Your artifacts can help cast those spells. Each artifact you tap after you're done activating mana abilities pays for .)

Helm of the HostOnce you can equip it, you have infinite turns with the token it creates.

Also maybe Inspiring Statuary (use your artifacts as mana)

Faith's Shield v Apostle's Blessing? Relic Seeker v Stonehewer Giant to lower curve? Dispatch v Path to Exile? I'd also recommend some beaters like Strata Scythe//Empyrial Plate/Lodestone Myr/Metalwork Colossus, and some ramp pieces like Blinkmoth Urn/Inspiring Statuary/Semblance Anvil. And how do you have the subtype category, is it an option of custom made? Looks good otherwise. Hope this helps <3

Inspiring Statuary is so good in these decks. Casting Paradoxical Outcome for 1 mana is the bees knees.

Very impressive deck with an equally impressive layout. An easy +1, congrats on all the recognition this deck has received.

There are two cards I feel worth pointing out. The first is Inspiring Statuary, a criminally undervalued card in hardcore equipment decks. I've heard all the arguments against this card but, in play testing it ramps for a substantial amount, and the value escalates quickly the longer it stays out. Your commander isn't cheap, if this can hit the field on turn 2 or 3, it's guaranteed you will be able to cast your commander on the next turn. I am unsure yet as to what this could swap in for, but the fact that its CMC is 3 makes me think something could work.

The second card is Commander's Sphere with the obvious swap being Hedron Archive. You've talked a lot about efficiency, I'm mildly surprised this hasn't been suggested yet. Hedron costs one more to cast, and while drawing two is nice, the sphere is vastly more efficient. A net total of two mana to cantrip versus six to draw one more. Perhaps most important of all it ramps on curve correctly to your commander. Seems like a strict upgrade to me.

Baral, Chief of Compliance looks like a possible include. Ethereal Usher can transmute into Mind's Desire or Muddle the Mixture for Grape Shot. Inspiring Statuary may be useful to cast larger non artifact spells. Isochron Scepter seems like a go to include in a Paradox Engine deck. Words of Wind can potentially net you mana off fast mana or just board wipe every turn. Special mentions to Baral's Expertise Solemn Simulacrum and Thoughts of Ruin

Any place for Inspiring Statuary? This could ramp you into your big threats and add to arty count for Antiquities. I like what you have here, I am working on something similar, although Mono U. I think adding black for removal may be the key to refining this though.

March of the Machines + Darksteel Citadel = 0/0 ???

I think you should use more 0 or 1 cmc artifacts. Sram, Senior Edificer with a lot of 0 mana equipment.

Paradoxical Outcome, generate mana return all artifacts put again on battlefield, draw a lot.

@BlazingAbsol I really like both of those cards in a more expensive version of the deck but unfortunately I don't have the money for Mox Opal and Retract ruins the Second Sun wincon because it returns Inspiring Statuary as well
