Memnarch Discussion

DerektheRed on Go with the Flow of the Undertow

This seems like the makings of a fun deck! It has a lot going on... I'm not convinced so many strategies can be supported (tho I'm fine being wrong if you think you can pull it off). My #1 suggestion would be to dump one or more strategies to strengthen the others. Roughly in order:

- Mill. IMO this is the weakest/least supported. Recommend cutting these cards (especially since you're not playing any wheel effects).

- Creature Copy/Stealing. This one is also pretty thin, but if you keep it consider adding Memnarch (flavor win!) and Rite of Replication .

- Thopters. This is worth keeping with a little more support. Consider adding Hangarback Walker . Maybe Sharding Sphinx ? If you do go harder on this strategy, look at Favorable Winds .

- Card draw. Already strong, but with this commander I'd go for even more. Surprised not to see any of the X draw spells like Pull from Tomorrow . Another idea is replacing counter/unsummon effects with cantrip versions like Exclude or Drag Under .

As for mana, do you own a Caged Sun or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ? Both are clutch in mono-color decks. Last, since you're playing artifacts, suggest replacing some of the high CMC beaters like Inkwell Leviathan with things you can cheat out like Metalwork Colossus .

Triple A [[Azorius Artifact Attack!]]

Hey all!

I've been moving around to deck after deck, but I always seem to come back to Azorius.

Now I love control, don't get me wrong, but I wanted to try something new with this iteration. So, I decided artifacts!

This build is mainly based around ramping with artifacts, using artifact synergies to get big battle-cruiser artifacts out, and steal out opponents things with cards such as Memnarch and Mind's Dilation .

I'd love some more budget (no more than 10$ cards) options for the deck. I'd like to make this a strong 75% deck if I could over time.

Hey, looks good, nice upgrade so far of the precon :)

$50 upgrade to consider (the main theme of these upgrades are cards that give you repeatable value)

Good luck with your deck.

Maybe with Darksteel Forge in the deck you could use Memnarch to make the creatures you steal into artifacts or just steal your opponents artifacts from them. With this you may also want Mycosynth Lattice

Boza on Did Karn Infect Any Other ...

Mirrodin was actually created by Karn - it is an artificial plane. However, he always carried a bit of phyrexian oil with him that corrupted many on Mirrodin - Glissa Sunseeker was one of the custodians of the plane, but she became Glissa, the Traitor . Memnarch was the original custodian, but the oil drove him mad.

The oil worked best on Mirrodin, because it was artificial - flesh and Phyresis do not mix well. It is entirely possible that other planes may have been infected, but the unique characteristics of Mirrodin place it the most likely for the oil to live long and prosper.^^_^^

Diggles4 I often only deploy that combo once the coast is clear and I'm in clear control of the game. However, if my opponent answer it with a Krosan Grip I can always find another way to win. There's multiple other win conditions other than Isochron Scepter:

I've often won off just controlling the board and stealing everyone's stuff with Memnarch or Oblivion Stone + Academy Ruins + Avacyn, Angel of Hope . Hope that helps!
