Inventors' Fair Discussion
1 day ago
Some interesting thoughts here! I appreciate you taking the time to consider these interactions.
I have Thran Dynamo in and out of the deck, it's one of my staples. It's currently in the sideboard, but only for show ;) It sounds like you've playtested these colorless builds often enough, noted about the Rings of Brighthearth "mana overkill" scenario. Inventors' Fair is a great land, I actually forgot about that one, I'll add it to the maybeboard for now for folks to refer to.
Adding Blightsteel Colossus , Rogue's Passage and Manifold Key to the maybeboard as well to tinker with. My playgroup has beaten up Blightsteel with overusage pretty bad, so at this point it's less flavorful of a win style for me but I'm sure you are correct about it's overall usefulness over Endless One . For me it's all a flavor play!
Thanks for dropping in, these are helpful interaction points.

I was wondering if Inventors' Fair was too slow myself, but I actually used it for a win the other day so I guess it can stay in for now!
I think it's tough to play through STAX, but we're also running some STAX-like effects in this deck ourselves so that's hopefully not the worst matchup. I think really fast aggro is often very hard to stop and that's more common in my local meta than STAX so I am afraid I can't really help with more advice there! I can only say that this deck seems to get better the more you play it and the more you know the cards in the deck well, so use that as an excuse for more games :D

Thanks for your response! I was thinking, since we've this bunch of artifacts maybe Academy Ruins would be nice? Also, I been running Inventors' Fair as another tutor, do you think is a little too slow? I'm finding this deck to be very fun, but most of the time I get the feeling I should be able to do a little more and I don't know if is because my meta is full of stax and destruction or I'm playing it wrong haha. I've been playing against: Zur the Enchanter , Queen Marchesa , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade and The Locust God . Any tips? Thanks in advance! =)

I removed the hub itself from my Yargle deck because Inventors' Fair & Expedition Map are, indeed, technically “Tutors” (the rest of the cards listed by SynergyBuild only fetch basic lands, but I rather not dive into the hair-splitting semantics of that)..
The rational, as KongMing quoted from the “Notable Exclusions” section of my deck description, still stands..
I originally jumped into the discussion because it spoke to the paradox of building a Mono-Black EDH deck, without any real budget restriction, not running any of the “usual suspects” that people would suggest ( Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , Grim Tutor , etc.)
And DarkStarStorm.. Your line of reasoning has me believe that you’re a reasonably intelligent person who loves being a contrarian just for the sake of being a contrarian.. (I’m frequently guilty of this myself)

KongMing - Lieutenant Yar-Kul runs Inventors' Fair , Expedition Map , Liliana of the Dark Realms , Myriad Landscape , Solemn Simulacrum , Thaumatic Compass Flip, Wayfarer's Bauble , it would be a joke to call it tutorless.

Cards I run in affinity that could help you here:
Master of Etherium : would be a 5/5 then get the +whatever/+whatever, plus pump your team
Karn, Scion of Urza : Can either be card draw or create tokens that when enchanted become at least 6/6's
Springleaf Drum : Especially w/ Memnite , can make insane starts by going Ornithopter , Ornithopter , Memnite , land, Springleaf Drum Springleaf Drum , Signal Pest . Just allows for more explosive nut draws.
Memnite : See above.
Cranial Plating : Easy to make your stuff huge quick.
Inventors' Fair : Keep your life high and be able to tutor for specific artifacts
Blinkmoth Nexus : Another artifact land
Cards you should consider cutting:
Tezzeret the Schemer : Inefficient removal, and the ult will never happen.
This is just my 2 cents, I hope you take these into considerati

A few artifacts perhaps worth considering: Mainboard: Metallic Mimic . Sideboard: Pithing Needle , Ratchet Bomb , Elixir of Immortality . Non-artifacts worth considering: Mainboard: Inventors' Fair , Scavenger Grounds , Buried Ruin , Field of Ruin , Ghost Quarter .
If you decide to splash a color, I'd suggest white for Dispatch . With white, you also get an array of decent broad disruption spells for the sideboard IE: Oblivion Ring , Path to Exile , Journey to Nowhere , Faith's Shield / Gods Willing / Apostle's Blessing , Disenchant , Revoke Existence , Sanctimony , Teyo, the Shieldmage , Leyline of Sanctity , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Aegis of the Gods , etc, etc, etc.

I’d be all for it.. I specifically built my Yargle Voltron deck to not contain any Tutors (with the exception of Inventors' Fair )
A Mono-Black EDH deck without any Tutors surprises a lot of people..
