Hey man awesome deck! as soon as I saw Sai I knew I would want to build him too!

Have you looked into putting in Master Transmuter at all in the deck?

Have you considered Vorel of the Hull Clade combined with my other suggestions? Ramos, Dragon Engine ; Doubling Cube; Master Transmuter, Composite Golem, Phyrexian Reclamation, and the Talismans (Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress, Talisman of Unity, Talisman of Impulse, Talisman of Indulgence. With Vorel you could also include Gyre Sage. Using Vorel to double the counters on Ramos and Gyre Sage. You could also storage lands like Calciform Pools, Dreadship Reef, Molten Slagheap, Fungal Reaches, Saltcrusted Steppe, Mage-Ring Network, and/or Mirrodin's Core along with a card that transforms lands into a creature, doesn't matter if it's permanent or just temporary, to have Vorel double the number of counters on them while they are creatures. I do this in my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and it works magic for me. If you're worried about any of these engine cards being limited just add tutors.

Side Note: I totally use Wasteland, Strip Mine, Crucible of Worlds, Ramunap Excavator , Exploration, and Burgeoning in my Glissa, the Traitor EDH deck and those cards are savage together. highly recommend trying them out together in a deck.

To Magus_of_the_Brothels Yes! This deck is just a different approach to the traditional Breya combo-fest so Blightsteel Colossus is just for fun and to have a "traditional" threat to put into play with Master Transmuter. There are a lot of cards in this list that are just for kicks or because I have one and are in no way needed e.g. Karn, Scion of Urza

As far as Ghirapur AEther Grid is concerned, it's pretty janky but we have a ton of dorky artifacts lying around and it can get wild with Paradox Engine so I'd absolutely say it's worth a spot.

wereotter on Thoughts on Will & Rowan ...

Merfolk Thaumaturgist and Mannichi, the Fevered Dream play nicely with Will's +2. Turn two creatures into 0/3 and then activate one of them to turn the creatures into 3/0 and kill them.

Echo Mage plays well off both their ultimates. Double level up counters when you have Rowan's emblem as well as copy an instant or sorcery 4x off activating him (on top of the twice if you ultimate Rowan before Will). Level up in general might be viable, Brimstone Mage tapping for 6 damage will be decent.

Arcanis the Omnipotent tapping to draw 6 cards will make him even more powerful here than in other decks.

Also artifacts are another solid route. Copying Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient's ability to copy an artifact's activated ability will be really potent, and using Master Transmuter to return one artifact to hand and pop two onto the battlefield will be insane.

Also back on the note of proliferate effects, there's Skyship Plunderer for a weaker effect, but still effective if you only have one of the pair in play.

Gateway looks nice. I'd love to see it alongside its counterparts; Master Transmuter/Quicksilver Amulet. Extra copies might leave it reliable enough to play for Sundering Titan/Inkwell Leviathan/Blightsteel Colossus, but that eight mana is a big investment when you end up down a card.

Might not be the right sort of list here- with access to enough mana and an extra card, I'd usually just want a Reshape.

floopthepig on Hi yes, please give suggestions

something like Words of Wind as back up perma upheaval

Dack Fayden is a must, you forgot Solemn Simulacrum

Leyline of Singularity could be worth considering if the rules change the cards you cast but idk.

on that vein, legends also trigger her draw. So maybe some other red/blue legends like Venser, Shaper Savant could be helpful . Even a Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir could be helpful (maybe even do the old knowledge pool trick)

Baral's Expertise could be helpfull in triggering some card draw shenanigans.

Crystal Shard or Blood Clock can be helpful for you to reuse things

Master Transmuter is an option if you start adding bigger artifacts like Blightsteel Colossus

also i would replace pira and kiran with an ashnods altar for a janky mana combo with junk diver and trawler

@Spoosky: It would require a bit of a setup. You'd have to be able to produce 10 mana with 7 lands for this combo to generate infinite mana (for example 7 lands, one of them a bounce-land, and one land enchanted with Market Festival). With 10 Mana you could pay 4 for Jodah, Archmage Eternal, pay WURBG for Palinchron, untap everything, pay 4 to return Palinchron. Then you can play Palinchron again and net 1 mana with each iteration. Regardless of that infinite combo, I might include Palinchron simply because it ramps when you play it for WURBG.

@Atuva: Yeah, that would be a nice engine. Phyrexian Reclamation would also be useful on its own. The problem I see is, that Master Transmuter would only be useful in the combo, because I don't have any artifact fatties like Blightsteel Colossus to cheat out. So I'll shelve this idea for now. Doubling Cube could be nice. I already thought about Mirari's Wake and the like (they also synergize with Garruk Wildspeaker, Zacama, Primal Calamity and with Palinchron if I choose to include it).

Roryrai, hadakou, thanks for your comments. I am taking Panharmonicon out. My thinking on it was wrong. Roryrai: i was in a hurry putting this together this morning. Almost everything you mentioned should be in the list or on the maybe board. Krark-Clan Ironworks should be in there, as should metamorph. I currently dont have a metamorph tho i will have both it and ss in deck when i do. Engineered Explosives is a meta choice. I may add Metalwork Colossus as well Mycosynth Golem is really there as a cost reducer, tho he may get cut. Master Transmuter is a bit slow, however i do play a slower game. She is really just there to bring out high mana cost artifacts, and ill usually bring back a tapped 0 cost rock so i can play it again for more mana. Lion's Eye Diamond is really just there for a mana boost. Plus i am loathe to leave it sitting in my binder or to put it in my wifes deck lol. As soon as im off work ill make a few changes. I dont have great signal here.
