Trainyaj on Dimir Artifact-walkers

You should build a full sideboard of 1-off artifacts if you plan to use Karn, the Great Creator and you should sub out some shocks and swamps to play 4 Interplanar Beacon as the only black you run are planeswalkers. A list of sideboard artifacts are as follows Arcane Encyclopedia – card draw for control, Explosive Apparatus – Bad removal, Navigator's Compass – life gain, Damping Sphere – Anti Izzet phoenix, Fountain of Renewal – Burn, Sorcerous Spyglass – Walkers, Helm of the Host – maybe ok? Magistrate's Scepter – control beater, Meteor Golem – good but expensive removal, Orazca Relic – versatile, Sentinel Totem – graveyard hate, Silent Gravestone – graveyard hate, Skyscanner – replaceable blocker, The Immortal Sun – win-con, Transmogrifying Wand – repeatable removal, Treasure Map  Flip card advantage. Please look at and comment my deck when you have time.

No removal = win

I feel like this deck relies very heavily on having Magistrate's Scepter . Without it, you lose quite quickly.Consider adding artifact searching cards like Trophy Mage , Fabricate , or Whir of Invention . Whir is fairly good in this deck since you get plenty of mana, and the fact that it puts it directly into play at instant speed can pretty much end the game on the spot. Also playing whir lets you play one-ofs of niche hate cards like Witchbane Orb , or the more expensive Ensnaring Bridge . I would cut Divination for these.

I recommend Magistrate's Scepter , infinite turns if you get 3 charge cards, and its only like 50cents

If you're looking for extra turns that happen to synergize with Pir, you could look at Lighthouse Chronologist , Magistrate's Scepter , Part the Waterveil , and even Sage of Hours . I only went with Part because it's non-repeatable works on its own; if you are looking for ones that give you a better chance to win and don't care about Pir synergy, then definitely the ones you mentioned are better.

Contagion Engine + Magistrate's Scepter + Fatestitcher = Infinite turns for the low low price of to get the cards on the table and to get the first free turn. to tap Scepter and add a Charge Counter, to tap C. Engine for +2 counters and Fatestitcher to untap Scepter to get +1 turn.

Hey, to make your deck more competitive consider building around Darksteel Reactor , Magistrate's Scepter and Sage of Hours ? A strategy around Biovisionary is not worth it because it forces you to play a bunch of bad high mana cost cards to enable it.

What you want with Reactor/Scepter are cards that can untap Vorel to be able to use his ability more than one time a turn as well as other cards that interact with charge counters. You also want tutors for artifacts. With Sage you need to get a counter on him either with graft (Frogling), moving a counter from one permanent to another (Conduit) or target him (Bioshift).

Cards to consider adding:

Another thing to consider is decreasing the avg. CMC of your deck. You can do this by cutting a lot of high mana cost cards especially creatures and enchantments for lower mana cost cards:

Many of these cards are budget and cards like Study are expensive price, but entirely worth it if you're trying to be more competitive. Toothy, Imaginary Friend is a good creature with counter strategies and all these draw spells especially repeatable ones such as Remora and Study can really pump it. Fauna can be a repeatable creature tutor which is very helpful when your budget can't afford all the expensive price tutors. When playing Toothy you want Reliquary Tower because Toothy can draw a lot of cards and you want to keep all those cards in your hand.

I offer more advice :) Good luck with your deck.

Cruizen93 on Vorel of the Counters

@Lanzo493 It's funny I had 3 of those cards in the deck you mentioned. lol Darksteel Reactor , Everflowing Chalice and Magistrate's Scepter . I had to make so many cuts in the deck though. I might replace Sage of Hours with Magistrate's Sceptor. Any suggestions to fitting in the other 2? And Thrummingbird ? I have such a hard time cutting cards lol
