Karn, Silver Golem Discussion

DrukenReaps on Goods ways to combat excessive ...

turn lands to creatures then kill them is funny. Well I find it funny. Karn, Silver Golem or Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Mycosynth Lattice can animate land or Kamahl, Fist of Krosa does it by himself. There are a few green enchants too but I forget their names... Then just play things that do -1/-1 to all creatures or destroy creatures etc etc.

Other options include Zo-Zu the Punisher and his edhrec page https://edhrec.com/commanders/zo-zu-the-punisher has additional things.

You could also work with him to help him speed up his decision making. Not during a game but before and after games or other non-game time ask him if you could just help him with the decks and how they work. Over time he should simply speed up as well, the more play time the easier these things get. I'm still famous for taking too long on my turns but I usually have a big impact on the game within the next 2 or 3 turns when I start taking too long or I die...

As a side note you are not playing artifact decks right :P

Alhammarret's Archive doubles your draw effects and is an amazing card to gain advantage over darettis +2 and your wheels. 14 cards for a wheel is insane. Also with your lack of creatures Karn, Silver Golem turning your board of artifacts into beaters seems like a strong win con. He combos with lattice for 1 mana land destruction aswell. He's also great for removing your opponents moxes and crypts Etc.

Raphiezar on Ramos ETB

If you ran Deepglow Skate, you could add more planeswalkers to the deck to allow them to activate the ults immediately. Alchemist's Refuge and Leyline of Anticipation giving you flash is good to use Ramos on other player's turns, plus they go well with Seedborn Muse if you have it. Flameshadow Conjuring, Deadeye Navigator, Eerie Interlude, Faith's Reward, Progenitor Mimic, Stolen Identity, Rite of Replication, and Clone Legion allow you to abuse more ETB effects. Craterhoof Behemoth, Venser, Shaper Savant, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Zealous Conscripts, Acidic Slime, Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Spires, Sepulchral Primordial, Luminate Primordial, Duplicant, Dragonlord Silumgar, Sower of Temptation, Hornet Queen, Deranged Hermit, Myr Battlesphere, Angel of Invention, Cultivator of Blades, have great ETB effects to be abused. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cytoplast Manipulator work really well with the Marchesa, the Black Rose you're running. Necropolis Regent, Master Biomancer, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Death's Presence, Experiment Kraj, and Verdurous Gearhulk are great for building up creatures with lots of +1/+1 counters. Greater Good, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Tishana, Voice of Thunder are great card draw sources for this deck. If you reanimate creatures from the graveyard often enough, Flayer of the Hatebound is strong in that department, and if you're looking for more big damage/lifeloss effects, Warstorm Surge, Stalking Vengeance, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, and Pathbreaker Ibex are good as wel. Conflux is really strong with Ramos in play, especially with Sakashima the Impostor copying him. If don't mind it being janky, you can copy your Panharmonicon by turning it into a creature with Karn, Silver Golem or March of the Machines. Take it a step further by adding Opalescence so your enchantments can be copied too. Ultimately, this is just supposed to be a big list of cards to draw inspiration from, not to all be added to the deck.

I actually own a colorless artifact deck IRL with Karn, Silver Golem as commander.

You should add Oracle's Vault, as once it's active, it forms a pseudo-infinite combo with Paradox Engine. Also, Semblance Anvil can also help with ramp.

Akroma's Memorial is a disgusting card, giving all your creatures a bunch of various buffs.

A really funny card I have in my deck is Warping Wail. It allows you to counter target sorcery, which means those dreaded Merciless Eviction, with artifact chosen.

Reminds me of the combo withMycosynth Lattice + Karn, Silver Golem, turn lands into 0/0 creatures who then die ;)

If you're going for janky land hate, Karn, Silver Golem + Mycosynth Lattice + Dross Scorpion will do it. Make all lands artifacts, then pay to Karn, making a land a creature. It dies as a state based effect (since it has zero toughness) and Dross Scorpion triggers, untapping one of your lands which is an artifact.

rinse and repeat until your opponents have no lands.

Another artifact-centered build I'm working on, this one using Bosh, Iron Golem as the commander, and Karn, Silver Golem as kind of a partner. Lots of combos and artifact shenanigans. Upvotes and suggestions are welcome!

Bosh and Karn

I think I would like Thopter Engineer in the 99, but am having trouble deciding what to move.

RazortoothMtg: A creature in the same vein as Karn, Silver Golem. And the opposite of the Flowstone cards. That's an idea!
