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 .)

Have one of my deck tech : since alot of pirate are humans I use Mass Appeal for card draw.

I also have some fun stuff like Ghirapur AEther Grid and Inspiring Statuary to have extra use for my treasure.

if you want to check it my Pirate EDH list here you go Treasures of Ixalan

@goldilion I thought about it, but considering that Sai, Sram, Grapeshot and just another spell or two (of 99) that do not have some other way of payment (Improvise, Affinity, Trap, mana generators like Simian/Elvish, etc) are the only ones that get benefited from Inspiring Statuary , I did not consider it, but thanks for the suggestion!

I was surprised not to see Inspiring Statuary ! Think it could work?

Juanturnkill on $10 Blue Artifact Storm

Lord_Europa that's a really cool idea, but I'm not really sure what to cut. It is worth much more with Inspiring Statuary and Riddlesmith , which are generally the easiest to cut. What would you suggest?

hkhssweiss, from what I've noticed over past 10 games or so, I only recall getting mana screwed maybe twice. With cards like Enlightened Tutor to tutor for Tithe and Land Tax I will purposely miss a land drop from time to time so I can grab up some lands. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is really awesome mid to late game. Also, Inspiring Statuary let's me pay the colorless cost on most cards, by tapping artifacts. That card has actually help out quite a bit, on more than one occasion.

I'm in the process of trying to figure out the actual finalized direction of my deck, so I'm thinking about cutting out some enchantments to add more lands, and also add some other cards with similar effects as other cards in my deck. I want it to be more consistent, for sure.

Deck sounds sweet, Stasis makes a great lock with is, as does Static Orb, Winter Orb, and some tutorage for those cards in the form of Muddle the Mixture, Enlightened Tutor, etc.

From that base, you could go more into turbo-stasis with Blind Obedience, Tangle Wire, Kismet, and Frozen AEther type cards, stax with Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, or permission control with Counterspells, Swords to Plowshares, Terminus, Supreme Verdict, and other control cards.

This could also be backed up be a strong walker plan, think Teferi, Temporal Archmage, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Jace, Architect of Thought.

Additionally, Teferi works well without creatures, you could run Humility as one of the harshest anti-creature cards, Cursed Totem to shut off more commanders, etc.

In a playgroup filled with walker commanders, Pithing Needle and Sorcerous Spyglass are great removal, as is anything else that can do similar effects. Suppression Field forces the issue that Stasis asks:

Can you pay for that?

Also, with a stax plan, or a control one in general, Rhystic Study is more powerful than usual, and never forget Mystic Remora! These cards should be pretty good.

Other than that, more cards that fit here are:

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Brago, King Eternal (flickers walkers to reset counters&activations for the turn), Azorius Signet, Cyclonic Rift, Fellwar Stone, Sol Ring, Chrome Mox, Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Swan Song, Path to Exile, Damping Sphere, Rings of Brighthearth (doubles walker activations!), Inspiring Statuary, Sphinx's Revelation, Search for Azcanta  Flip, Return to Dust, Fact or Fiction, Mystical Tutor, Arcane Denial, Teferi's Protection, Rewind, Reality Shift, Tragic Arrogance, Cleansing Nova, Treasure Cruise, Dig Through Time, Mind Stone, Sensei's Divining Top, etc.

DangoDaikazoku oh ive seen it, im just interested in any and all feedback. If youre on the animatou discord, we can talk there or move the conversation. A big thing ive noticed is that she lends herself to combos with animate dead. My personal list is more geared towards dd as her +1 can either pilecrack or win with labman depending on the situation. Let me know if you need me over there. Ive been meaning to try out stax while also utilizing Inspiring Statuary to break winter orb. I might have to ask around the HEMAN (Humility Effective Midrange Ad Nauseam) discord for some directioning but this may be a thing to go for (and finally make use of my back to basics). a nice piece that you might want to consider is Uba Mask that circu utilizes well for hand denial. But feel free to message me on the aminatou deck or over discord if you want to talk
