Inspiring Statuary Discussion

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid on Muzzio the Cheater

Thoughts on Darksteel Citadel? There's a bunch of ramp cards unique to artifacts too, I thought I should mention them. Etherium Sculptor, Foundry Inspector, Mycosynth Golem, Inspiring Statuary, Blinkmoth Urn, Krark-Clan Ironworks, Chief Engineer, etc. There's also Kuldotha Forgemaster, a damn good tutor. Thoughts on Argivian Restoration versus your Scarecrone? Clock of Omens versus your Unwinding Clock? It's arguably less useful but it has more control, especially in equipment decks and such.

Hope this helps

Also, I would highly recommend Inspiring Statuary. I just added it and after two test runs of the deck it is one of the best mana ramp cards available in red.

Hey I got a few quick ideas for you...some mana ramp Sword of the Animist, Inspiring Statuary can tap equipment for mana, Quietus Spike is another win con, Supplant Form is a crazy combat trick that you can get better use from than usual, personally I prefer global effects like Coastal Piracy and Bident of Thassa over auras like Curiosity, good old Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus can also ramp you like you are a green deck. Crush of Tentacles seems like it could be a cool board wipe, Dance of Many, Followed Footsteps, Vizier of Many Faces and Tempt with Reflections are great copy cards, if you don't play much 1v1 Blade of Selves is also super cool. Nice deck btw. Happy gathering!!

You're Playing 4 Inspiring Statuary and they are your only artifact. Doesn't make sense. They become REALLY bad 3CMC mana rocks.

mrbuech Thank you so much for your input.

I have chosen to go mono-blue in this deck to increase the overall consistency. I have tested with u/w variants before and they are significantly more explosive, however I find them to be less effective at stalling out the game, and getting to a place where you can storm off anyway.

As for Inspiring Statuary, great suggestion, I am currently testing with a two of.

You might consider splashing white for Sigarda's Aid and Sram, Senior Edificer. Sram generates an amazing amount of card draw. Also, Inspiring Statuary to allow you to tap all your artifacts for mana. I have a very similar deck that I have a lot of fun with that you might get some ideas from.

Hi Rzepkanut,

Thanks for the suggestions. Reyhan, Last of the Abzan looks very good, will wait and see what his TCG price ends up being. He is good enough with just himself, and has GREAT synergy with Marionette Master as well as the Modular creatures.

You are correct, my Glissa, the Traitor over time has definitely moved from the Modular synergy, into more of a sacrifice and recursive artifact engine, therefore, I've reset my SLUG for the deck, I feel it's a better presentation of the current build.

Gate to the Afterlife the life is good, but the draw and discard, not that great. It does get more artifacts into the graveyard to recur, but not convinced it's a fast or efficient enough way (even though this format is very slow).

Beseech the Queen is good, but with a $50 Budget "Salary Cap", it can't make it in. Dark Petition is borderline, right now I have a mana problem that needs to be addressed, but this may make it in. Maybeboard for now.

I'll probably try and go the way of more Artifact than less, so Inspiring Statuary may dwindle. Also I think getting the proper mana because the lands are so awful in this format is a higher priority. Like a Wanderer's Twig or something.

Smokestack makes me miss Braids, Cabal Minion, this $50 EDH deck was built around her, it's been sad without her. Hopefully I will get it back working proficiently again without Braids, Cabal Minion but she will be missed. Smokestack at $5+ will be very difficult to make room for, it would have to swap out the Birthing Pod and change the strategy of the deck. I wish it was $1 as Smokestack is Super-All-Star.

Thanks for the feedback!
