March of the Machines Discussion

The commander is Arcades Sabboth - There wasn't an obvious detective commander so I figured if I wanted to go Bant in an Elder Dragon highlander deck without a synergistic commander I might as well do an Elder Dragon.

He's actually ended up being helpful from time to time - like when an opponent played March of the Machines

As for what it does . . . You should play it and see if you can figure it out.

I'd consider looking at the sideboards of some of the more traditional affinity decks- Tooth of Chiss-Goria/Thoughtcast type cards, possibly backed by March of the Machines powering some mana rocks. I'd also consider artifacts with interesting sacrifice effects for touch, possibly to enable a loop/lockdown type setup. Ratchet Bomb, Sun Droplet, Veilstone Amulet or Grafdigger's Cage enchanted with it is remarkably scary and enables hatebears-style play.

I think you could easily cut Memnarch, Take Possession, March of the Machines, Angel's Grace, Liquimetal Coating, Caltrops, Blinkmoth Urn and Mindslaver and the deck wouldn't miss them. That's a start at least.

Also, running 1 counter spell seems silly. I'd say either cut it or add more.

This seems like worse Splinter Twin, combo which is ok, just make sure you follow the same principle: Your deck is really only going to win by comboing out (except in very cornercase scenarios), so you want many copies of your combo cards. Check out this list from 2015: Splinter Twin.

Then come the dig. Sage Owl is quite weak compared to something like Serum Visions. Your lands and tutors seem a little strange, so just some pointers for cards to add: Mana Leak, Spell Pierce, Negate and Dispel are all great counter spells for any combo deck, and cards like Lightning Bolt and Snapcaster Mage belong in almost any deck that can support them. Electrolyze is also very good.

One last note is that Eldrazi Tron is pretty good in this meta, and that deck plays Emrakul, the Aeons Torn sometimes, so finding an alternate win condition for the sideboard other than Altar of the Brood might be a good idea. I've seen March of the Machines work, as you can also use it to shoot down lands with Liquidmetal coating. Spellskite is another effective SB card to consider.

I also advise not to play the Kaldra cycle. It is very weak and easy to remove.

For one you can have a "mana rock" deck through animation effects like the original Karn, Silver Golem , or Sydri, Galvanic Genius, or even mass animation like March of the Machines. For two though I find it interesting how most lower mana rocks have started to become balanced through more than just ETB tapped effects; like how Corrupted Grafstone also requires you to have a spell of some color in the grave.

Grafstone was also indicative of a shift away from the magic of the Eldrazi in that colorless/devoid cards couldn't use that type of pseudo-death based magic that is common to all of Innistrad. That kind of built in thematic mechanics has always been the best part of MTG to me.

March of the Machines War Report and Leonin Abunas would help. I could never get Sydri to function right in my play group so good luck man, hopefully you'll fair better.

Nice, very evil!

You could maybe drop 1 or 2 March of the Machines since you only need 1 out.
