@LeaPlath I included Junk Diver to get artifacts back from graveyard and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer makes artifacts indestructible. I know this is not bulletproof, but with enough luck it might work out. Not to forget that damage combos can be blocked with Isochron Scepter and Fog.

I had a big card supply recently, so let's rebuild the deck.

out Saheeli RaiRS

out Felidar GuardianRS

This was wincon "just because I can" and "why not". It even worked sometimes. Separately these cards are not much useful (though I've played the last Saheeli's ability several times and won with another combos), especially considering they are not artifacts and cannot be tutored by Arcum Dagsson or protected by Darksteel Forge and Padeem. So, in order to add many new cards I decided to pick off this combo. I wouldn't want to take it far away though.

out Sanctum Gargoyle

out Chromatic StarRS

out Alhammarret's ArchiveRS

out Junk Diver

out Filigree Sages

out Shimmer Myr

Some of these cards I'll maybe return later.

in Planar BridgeRS

in Paradox EngineRS

in Vedalken Orrery

Finally I got 'em!

The bridge makes a combo with Unwinding Clock (and sometimes with Clock of Omens) while I have a lot of mana artifacts. I can tutor a permanent onto the battlefield every turn - my and each of my opponent's. I can search for a combo, or I can just make fun and search for different interesting artifacts. With Vedalken Orrery I could do almost all other things (except for activating Planeswalkers abilities and attacking) in the end of every opponent's turn (or in response, of course). It comes instead of Shimmer Myr, because he's much more vulnerable and doesn't let me to cast noncreature spells as instants. The ability cost is quite expensive and can hardly be activated as the Bridge comes into play, but I hope the Bridge combo or the Bridge itself will work as I imagine it to myself =)

in Wrath of God

in Damnation

in Supreme Verdict

The second thing I wanted to add to my deck. Just mass removal spells.

The problem is that I can't just clean the table in the turn I need it. And I need it - since I make random-turn-combos, not war. Nevinyrral's Disk and Scourglass are very slow - the Disk enters tapped (though it can be untapped by Clock of Omens, Tezzeret the Seeker , or even using Time Sieve), Scourglass can be used only during my upkeep. I also would like to put Oblivion Stone in the deck as I get this card, but it just too mush mana-expensive to immediately blow up the table. Finally, the Disk and the Stone destroy my own noncreature artifacts, which is unpleasant. So, I decided to add several spells of this sort. Just to destroy all creatures - now.

in Metalworker

Let's see how this strongly-required-in-artifacts-deck card will work.

in Vedalken Archmage

That was the only card I found that allows to draw cards for casting an artifact or for the artifact ETB trigger.

out Nomad Outpost

out Sequestered StashRS (I can hardly remember I played this land's ability)

out Rupture Spire (I just hate this card! Enters tapped and eats one mana...)

out Island

in Misty Rainforest

in Flooded Strand

in Blood CryptRS

in Steam VentsRS

I'm thinking about lands too. I've also got Windswept Heath, but at the moment I have only one white dual land (Prairie Stream), so I should gather more shocklands before.Oh, it's quite hard to think what land I need to tutor with the fetchland, considering I have only several shocks in the deck... I always forget what lands are in the deck now.

I'd have some interest in:

Sphere of Safety or Sphere of Safety Junk Diver from Urzas Destiny

Mainly. Most of what I'm looking for atm is lands or edh cards.

Good point about Buried Ruin I was just using it as another sort of redundancy with the myr, but what you said is true. I'll probably go back to Junk Diver and drop to 37 lands.

I'm thinking Mike here is actually great, he inherently doubles the value of all of our creatures (outside of Chainer and XHD), provides a nice devotion count, and is a somewhat poor mans chainer with the undying clause. Worst case scenario we just sac him if we control any enemy creatures so they don't return to enemy side with persist. Otherwise he can help develop the board, saves some life due to less instant recursion requirements, and at worst case scenario acts as a bait rod for removal.

I would cut Myriad Landscape and Buried Ruin as one comes in tapped and cost 2 to activate and Ruin is really just a bad replacement for Junk Diver or Myr Retriever. Atleast thoughs are creatures and trigger your Pact and can get you back Expedition Map for better land drops.

I would also stay away from Mike because the owner gets the creature back so you don't want that if your planning on nabbing an opponents playthings.

ElderCheese, Myr Retriever is in the deck. Junk Diver and Myr Retriever work great together for GY control, or as a sac engine with Arcum Dagsson. Thanks for checking it out!

I really like this deck and I may be shamelessly steeling some of the combos in this deck for memnarch :D I just have one question atm why do you have Junk Diver rather then Myr Retriever unless I've gone mad they do the same thing but the retriever is 1 mana less.
