March of the Machines


Each noncreature artifact is an artifact creature with power and toughness each equal to its converted mana cost. (Equipment that's a creature can't equip a creature.)

Drakorya on Next "EDH Tribal Series" Tribe

I know it's not technically a tribe, but I thought doing a "Kicker" Tribal deck with Hallar, the Firefletcher would be an interesting challenge.

Werewolf tribal would also be interesting, with Ulrich of the Krallenhorde  Flip as Commander. Or you could go super janky and add blue to use March of the Machines and Arcane Adaptation to transform artifacts like Azor's Gateway  Flip with Moonmist or Waxing Moon.

A common trick for sydri players is to use March of the Machines for a more artifact creature themed deck. Or if you want to make sure no one attacks ever, run Caltrops

If you're looking at running mana rocks and Powerstone Shard with colourless lands, have you considered making it a colourless combo/ramp list?

Cogwork Assembler, Phyrexian Metamorph Mirage Mirror Sculpting Steel Myr Galvanizer , Clock of Omens Dross Scorpion Grinding Station Paradox Engine Staff of Domination Pili-Pala Metalwork Colossus Unwinding Clock Voltaic Key Voltaic Construct Temple Bell etc.

Mono-brown has an incredible number of combo tools if you're dumping 6+ mana onto the field. You just need to figure out if you can balance cards to help you get 6+ mana and cards that combo with it. Powerstone Shard offers a lot of combo oppertunity, and being in blue gives access to Reshape etc.

Theres nothing quite like looking like March of the Machines beatdown, then abruptly instantly winning with Voltaic Construct on an animated Gilded Lotus. Clunky, sure, but a hellava lot of fun. There are all kinds of mixed strategies like that out there.

cdkime on Does Blood Funnel counter creatures ...

First interaction:

Yes, this would work--at least in theory.

Let's look at the stack:

  1. You cast Ichor Wellspring, this would trigger Blood Funnel's counter ability, except you sacrifice your Mycosynth Wellspring to nullify the ability.

  2. Mycosynth Wellspring's death puts two new abilities on the stack: Pia's Revolution's recursion ability and Mycosynth Wellspring's tutor ability. Both of these will resolve, so it does not really matter what order you place them on the stack.

  3. The abilities from #2 resolve. If your opponent does not take the 3 damage, you will be allowed to return Mycosynth Wellspring to your hand.

  4. Ichor Wellspring resolves and enters the battlefield. It is now a creature due to March of the Machines.

  5. You can repeat steps 1-4 infinitely (alternating which Wellspring is sacrificed).

Would it work in reality? Almost certainty not. Three damage to stop an infinite combo is inconsequential--there's no way an opponent will let you pull this off. If you've already gotten them to 3 or less life, then you probably have better ways to win, and do not need to mess around with somewhat complicated combos.

For your second question, that is correct. If countered, they never enter the battlefield, and cannot cause ETB triggers.

I just realized this question makes no sense. Since I can't close this until answered, here is my new question.

Does this interaction work?

I have Blood Funnel, March of the Machines and Pia's Revolution on my side of the battlefield.

I can now cast spells such as Ichor Wellspring for 0. But by casting it I must sacrifice an animated artifact on the battlefield now, such as a Mycosynth Wellspring. Asuming no one pays Pia's Revolutions cost, I can now endlessly loop these 2 wellsprings forever?

And if I ever have no creatures to sacrifice, no ETB triggers can happen, since they are countered and never enter the battlefield.

If both Blood Funnel and March of the Machines are on the battlefield, are non-creature artifacts I summon such as Ichor Wellspring considered creature spells and countered?

March of the Machines + Darksteel Citadel = 0/0 ???

I think you should use more 0 or 1 cmc artifacts. Sram, Senior Edificer with a lot of 0 mana equipment.

Paradoxical Outcome, generate mana return all artifacts put again on battlefield, draw a lot.
