Emry, Lurker of the Loch seems perfect in here. Same with Ashiok, Dream Render. Both around $2 is on the very edge of budget but I like them both in here. Myr Battlesphere could also be a fun add. Sticking with Myr I really like Myr Retriever. Metalwork Colossus could be a big dummy for you that just keeps coming back. Maybe Dimir Signet instead of locket? Finally Burnished Hart could give you some much needed ramp.

Either way deck looks rad, Cheers friend!

I'd definitely find a spot for Mirage Mirror . Voltaic Servant would fit in nicely as well. Throw Seat of the Synod back in the main. Master Transmuter if it's within your budget. Sai, Master Thopterist should be an auto include. Saheeli's Artistry ? Metalwork Colossus ?

I'm not gonna tell you what to take out as that is hard for me to do on my own decks let alone someone else's, so I'll leave the deciding to you.

Definitely seconding Gearhulk if you can spring for it ($$$). If you're open to spending more, Brazen Borrower is great because it bounces a wider range of things and recoups card advantage by giving you a flash threat which plays well with your counter gameplan.

Diamond Mare and Skygate are wayyy too weak to be playing for as little payoff as the serpent. They are also a bit awkward with your Ratchet Bomb. Generally I don't think the artifact plan and the counter plan really mesh since you want to tap out on your turn for artifacts. But if you really wanna do Artifacts, check out Metalwork Colossus and maybe Glint-Nest Crane

I took my mono Blue deck out for a spin this week, and I was overall happy with the results. After 4 rounds of Swiss I only lost 2 games. Unfortunately they were to the same player, who was 2-1’d me with that 5 color Superfriends build. I won game one with almost perfect draws and starting hand. Had him game two, but misplayed and made my Brazen Borrower unblockable instead of Thassa, God of the Sea , herself. Then he used the Bolas “lose unless you control a legendary” ability, and that was all she wrote. Game three, I never had a chance. He whacked me with Supreme Verdict and I never came back from it.

I had zero trouble beating Burn, that artifacty Metalwork Colossus thing, and Gruul energy.

Then, during top 4 I got beat 2-1 by the graveyard dredge deck. He always had blockers up to stop my mid-game assaults that are usually the lethal swings. I sided a Jace, Architect of Thought in, but his ultimate ability netted me zero usefulness from his deck, and my own threat got hosed by a kill spell.

So, I obviously need graveyard hate. I am adding Grafdigger's Cage to my side against this match. I just can’t commit to a set of Leyline of the Void with it being a dead card unless it’s in my starting hand. I realize that’s the idea, but no. The cage works fine here I imagine.

What do I do against Superfriends? I suppose I can throw Cyclonic Rift into the side. I can overload the board back to his hand, and he essentially has to start from scratch again. Any better advice?

ignore the last comment. it's old.

  1. Witch's Oven + Metalwork Colossus saves it

  2. Paradox Engine + Mystic Forge to pretty much play your entire deck

  3. Mana Rocks + Paradox Engine get insane mana to win with Walking Ballista

  4. Karn, the Great Creator is also nice for getting Walking Ballista or Paradox Engine or something else from the sideboard

  5. Sanctum of Ugin can chain Metalwork Colossus once you're able to play them for free

I speak from experience when I say Spine of Ish Sah would be a pretty nasty addition to the deck. My sister runs it in paper and if she gets that out with a Goblin Welder I lose unless I can deal with it within a few turns. KCI works in tis place though, if you don't wanna add the Welder. Also suggest Metalwork Colossus

Paradox Engine has been banned in EDH recently though, and Tolarian Academy is banned as well in the maybe list.

Is this specifically a non-infinite league? There are lot of cards to add if not, like Staff of Domination , Walking Ballista , Metalwork Colossus (free sac outlet and discard engine). And don't forget both boots for the gobbos and emperion. I also prefer Platinum Angel to counter the "I win" effects.
