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 .)

Inspiring Statuary Discussion

SteelSentry on Arcanis Clues

I would look at a lot of the Esper cards like Master Transmuter and Master of Etherium. Inspiring Statuary seems clutch for mana ramp. If you really wanted to go deep on this I would look at any of the blue Treasure token producers, since they are also artifacts and would work off a lot of the clue synergies as well.

Since you're running a healthy balance between artifacts and non-artifact spells, you could really capitalize on Inspiring Statuary, especially because your curve is so dang high

You might want to look into more cards that make your boardwipes one-sided like Boros Charm, Leave / Chance, or maybe even Bathe in Light

Personally, I prefer Puresteel Paladin to Sram, Senior Edificer, but there's no harm in running both

If you find that people are spot-removing your artifacts a lot, Padeem, Consul of Innovation will protect your artifacts AND can be a great source of draw! Leonin Abunas is also pretty great if you want another card with that effect

You might want to look into Boros Charm, Leave / Chance, and maybe Valorous Stance so you can protect Ruhan more, OR you could run more Brion Stoutarm effects like Fling and Bloodshot Cyclops

Another infinite combo you might be interested in is Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine

Since you're running a healthy balance between artifacts and non-artifact spells, Inspiring Statuary could be extremely useful since you run lots of high costing creatures

If you're still having trouble with card draw, I would recommend either the Howling Mine + Inspiring Statuary wombo-combo or Wheel of Fate if you can't afford Wheel of Fortune

I would also recommend Boros Charm and Leave / Chance because Wrath of God type effects are RW's mortal enemy.

Also, Return to Dust is a much better option than Dust to Dust

You gotta go with the classic Jor + Myr Battlesphere wombo-combo. It is too silly :p

Because you're running a healthy balance between artifacts and non-artifact spells, you might want to try running Inspiring Statuary. It essentially turns each of your equipment into mana rocks

Leave / Chance could also be really useful for protecting your own equipment and creatures

In an equipment deck like this, you're running a healthy balance between artifacts and non-artifact spells, so you can really capitalize on Inspiring Statuary for ramp. It can also turn off your Blinkmoth Urn so your opponents can't capitalize on it

Leave / Chance is a really nice Boros Charm type of effect that was just recently printed

I don't see where I mention ramp, although I've debated throwing Spring or even an Inspiring Statuary, which I like more because it can be cast off of Yahenni's. Yahenni's is really only there as a four mana board wipe to be honest, it does occasionally cast Supreme Will, but I originally thought it was just better than Bontu's Last Reckoning, one reason being that it makes a token that then survives the board wipe, but I think I will move towards testing and using Bontu's. Rishkar's Expertise with a Metallurgic Summonings in play on turn 6 has never lost me a game yet, although I've only pulled it off 3 times. There's a reason it's a one-of though, and I often side it out, especially if my opponent is blue and I know they are siding into counterspells. I think I've had it countered one time in a game one, and significantly more after game one, so it's definitely high on my list to side out, especially when siding in other 5+ mana spells. I've honestly only cast Nissa, Vital Force once so far (in six matches), so I'm not sure yet. the one time I cast her was in a matchup against a Revel in Riches deck where my opponent was at 7 life, when I had two 1/1 constructs, and I was fairly sure I needed to kill them that turn, or they would have a good chance of winning in a couple turns, I had like 25 cards left in my deck, so I Supreme Willed into Supreme Will into Nissa, cast her, and swung for exactsies after Fatal Pushing some two-drop pirate. So if we want to misrepresent data, she has a 100% win rate, but in reality I need more testing.

Thanks for the interest, throw me any other questions you have!

As a mana rock, how do you feel about Inspiring Statuary? obviously you cant use it to cast artifacts and your mana rocks will tap for better than . However, this makes use of your equipment and even has a nasty trick with howling mine.
