Masterwork of Ingenuity Discussion

Gleeock on Sram: Eggy-Weggs.. I think I'll smash em!

Removed Prototype Portal for Mass Calcify... portal is cool, especially if I exile Masterwork of Ingenuity but that combo is rare, often broken up, not as effectual as adding a nice (potentially 1 sided) creature wipe

I was recently working on a Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon deck (because I can't be bothered counting all the way to 21 lol) and have thus got a list of budget artifacts that you may want to consider: Sword of the Chosen, Kusari-Gama, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Ring of Xathrid, Lashwrithe, Argentum Armor, Grappling Hook, Prowler's Helm, Trailblazer's Boots, and the good old Masterwork of Ingenuity.

Your commander has semi-unblockable, so some aren't as useful as they are for Skittles; and alot of them have huge CMC + equip costs (Argentum Armor lol) but they're at least worth a try.

You have a formidable mana base, but with a commander with 6 CMC, you may want to through in a few more mana rocks: Crypt Ghast and Magus of the Coffers are expensive but bloody amazing, especially with stuff like Blanket of Night.

Another thing you may want to consider is recursion. Your commander is very expensive, so cheating him out for cheap would be beneficial to your deck. There are some amazing recursion spells, such as Animate Dead. Thirdly, card advantage is king in EDH (shortly after land removal and infect BWAHAHAHAHA ahem) so just through in some Sign in Blood or something.

Lastly (sorry for the immensely long post, I can get carried away): Eldrazi processors. When you cast a spell with Wrexy, I gets exiled and you can't do it again, even if it's amazing. But with the addition of a Blight Herder (which is effectively a 2 mana 4/5) or something and you can cast your enemy's Time Stretch over and over again! Might i suggest Ulamog's Reclaimer and Mind Raker?

Alternatively, my favorite use of Prototype Portal is to imprint Sculpting Steel onto it and make copies of Gilded Lotus. Then you can tap a lotus to activate the portal and make another lotus. Sculpting Steel might be more versatile than Masterwork of Ingenuity in your case. Either way, Prototype Portal would be really useful and versatile in this deck.

If you need card draw, Mind's Eye is perfect. I've been using Oketra's Monument and Skullclamp in my mono white deck. You have Heliod and Hero of Bladehold that can make tokens with 1 toughness, so Skullclamp might be a viable option. I've also been running Anointed Procession, that with a Skullclamp works for more card draw. Puresteel Paladin might also be a good option, he has card draw and it reduces equip to 0. Again, with a Prototype Portal + Masterwork of Ingenuity , it turns into a good card draw engine and you can make copies of any equipment in play. Unwinding Clock would allow you to do it on everyone's turn as well.

Quietus Spike, Duelist's Heritage, Gratuitous Violence, Inferno Titan, Outmaneuver, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Captain's Claws... Inspiring Statuary lets you tap equipment for mana. Nice deck looks fun. I run Aurelia too, but I go wide with lots of double striking dorks and anthems instead. Here's a link, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.

I would say you need more ways to generate card advantage and more ways to get more mana.

For mana, we have Marble Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, Land Tax, Endless Horizons, Knight of the White Orchid, Gift of Estates, Solemn Simulacrum, Weathered Wayfarer, Karoo, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

For card advantage we have multiple ways to break that up, so starting with cards that remove multiple things.Angel of the Dire Hour, Fumigate, Comeuppance, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Mass Calcify and Phyrexian Rebirth (if you run more mana rocks), Grasp of Fate, Return to Dust, and other board wipes of varying quality.

Now cards that give you other cards for free.Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, a lot of the ramp cards listed above, Nahiri, the Lithomancer, Stone Haven Outfitter, Relic Seeker, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Steelshaper Apprentice, Oreskos Explorer and Emeria Shepherd.

Here are some cards that have particular synergy with your deck, I've already listed some like Nahiri above.Masterwork of Ingenuity, Konda's Banner, Hero's Blade, Mask of Avacyn, Bonesplitter, Intangible Virtue.

Cards in particular I would cut from the deck would be:Blinding Powder, Ethereal Haze, Altar of the Brood, Darksteel Forge (when will you ever get to 9 mana?), Torpor Orb, Blight Sickle, Authority of the Consuls, Orbs of Warding, Quietus Spike (it's costly, makes you a target, and doesn't help with the Voltron plan), Ulamog (not enough mill decks in the world).

That's my $0.02.
