So, my current deck in standard is a mill control deck.

For that one:

Teferi's Dismissal

Instant

Return target creature you don't control to its owner's hand.

Draw a card.


For my modern deck, which recurs elementals:

Death's Whisper

Creature - Elemental

When Death's Whisper enters the battlefield, destroy target creature with converted mana cost 2 or less.

Menace, Haste

At the beginning of your endstep, sacrifice Death's Whisper

4/1


For my favorite commander deck, mt Kambal deck, I've talked about ad nauseum...

Kaya's home plane of Tolvada has a maddening sky, so here's my riff on that

Observatory of Tolvada

Land

Observatory of Tolvada enter the battlefield tapped.

: Add .

, : Each player puts the cards in their hand on the bottom of their library in any order, then draws cards equal to the then draws cards equal to the greatest number of cards a player put on the bottom of their library this way. ________-

I think Teferi's Puzzle Box represents going mad, also Whispering Madness. Viseling, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Misers' Cage, Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted, Underworld Dreams, Iron Maiden, etc. would love this effect. ______--

Super fun, repeat the challenge!

I really like the design, although I think it's a tad weak, although Shadowborn Apostle is lowkey broken. Not sure, maybe it'd be fair. Difficult to gauge these effects.

Here's the Red one:

Flamekin

Creature - Elemental

A deck can have any number of cards named Flamekin.

Haste

At the beginning of your endstep, sacrifice Flamekin, then exile any number of cards named Flamekin in your graveyard. Each card exiled this way deals 1 damage to any target.

2/1


Probably very broken especially with Burning Inquiry, The Flame of Keld, etc.


I'm reissuing my challenge, as actually that's not what I meant, but very cool nonetheless.

So the Ascend/City's Blessing mechanic cares about the number of permanents

Undergrowth, Delirium, Threshold Crackling Drake all care about the graveyard, and the latter also care about Exile.

The Rack, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Iron Maiden, Venser's Journal, Sword of War and Peace, etc. Care about cards in hand.

I meant total number cards in library, or exile, or types in these zones etc. Is important to your common.

My first thought was Magmatic Force and Havoc Festival to draw a card every turn. but neither work because your commander identifies as blue and black.

I did a gatherer search for black and blue cards that deal damage during each upkeep, and the results are interesting: Most of them dealt with hand size.

There are only 2 unconditional damage artifacts:

And there were two other outliers:

5scapegoat on Urza's Gamble [Artifact EDH]

One of the cards that has been announced for core set 2020 is [translated as] "Masterful Replication". It is a 6 cost modal instant (5 + Blue). Its effects are: create two 3/3 artifact creature tokens; or every artifact you control becomes a copy of target artifact you control.

Applications include:

  • Have an interesting time with an army of Master of Etherium or Darksteel Colossus or similar tough artifact creatures.
  • Have a stack of Genesis Chamber each making a token when you next cast something.
  • You could one shot someone during their upkeep with the sudden appearance of a board full of Iron Maiden .
  • With your Urza out during your opponents draw step, you could turn all of your artifacts into copies of Mind's Eye tapping them to pay their own cost drawing a mass of cards.
  • You could also win the turn after casting Mechanized Production by making all of your artifacts, including artifact lands, into copies of the artifact you enchanted.

Shimmer Myr is also a good card.

Also since you might find yourself attracting some artifact hate some indestructible artifacts might be a good include, such as Darksteel Ingot , Darksteel Relic and Darksteel Plate .

I feel like Black Vise is strickly better than Iron Maiden , Anvil of Bogardan will let you kill them faster, by increasing the cards in their hand to kill them faster how does everyone feel about this combo: Inspiring Statuary + Winter Orb letting you tap winter orb at after your opponent's untap step, so all your lands untap on your untap step, removing the mana restriction on yourself, so you can Blue Sun's Zenith

Memory Erosion and Hedron Crab could help you. As to what to remove, I would focus on your goal (pillowfort and decking opponents) and get rid of cards that do nothing to achieve that (Iron Maiden and similar effects). Also Pull from Tomorrow seems unnecessary, given all that group-draw you have.
