Guerte That's my problem with Mirage Mirror, my list is very tight as is and I think Mirrorworks is too good and can generate value if it can be used early on. I think that the mirror can have a place I'm just not sure where it'll fit in yet.

Alright folks! The images should be working again. I had to change image hosts to a more reliable one (Imgur). If you see anything else amiss, please let me know!!!

=================================

yesty13: LED I feel is better in the stax version of Daretti. I don't like the idea of losing my entire hand just getting Daretti out. And as far as Scroll Rack goes, it can be good to get rid of cards you don't want in hand, but unless you have a way at the ready to shuffle your deck, you're just going to draw them again. I don't plan on running it, but if you wish then by all means!

Angry_Fister/BPots6694/LTmiller: As far as Mirrorworks vs Mirage Mirror goes, I feel like they are very different cards. Mirage can copy things already in play, and gives you flexibility every turn for something you may want. However, it won't trigger ETB effects like Mirrorworks does, and whatever you create a copy of stays in play and can be used for Daretti/Welder fodder.

I'm not 100% sold on the card yet.

I FB Messaged Guerte so he could fix the problems and answer some questions for everyone.

Personally, agree about dropping Mirrorworks.

I'd probably drop Mirrorworks. Mirage is much cheaper and more flexible because you can copy something in play.

Panharmonicon Monkey Cage Mirrorworks Eldrazi Monument.Monkey cage will triget multiple times when you add creatures at instant speed in response to its trigger.. panharmonicon will give double multiple triggers and double trigger mirrorworks. When you have your mirror works out playing panharmonicon will double trigger mirror works when it enters and you will gain 3 for 1 :) 3 pans equals for triggers for each etb and tons of tokens from recycling cage, battlesphere, wurmcoil, etc...

Lol, it IS long but I think I understand what you're saying. If it's ok with you, I want to use numbered steps to describe exactly what happens (mostly because it helps me understand this stuff better and I was sorta angry with myself the whole day for not getting this haha). So to reiterate:

You need Mirrorworks/Minion Reflector on the table + enough mana resources to generate :

  1. Use Workhorse's mana ability to remove all +1/+1 counters to add 4 colorless mana to your mana pool.
  2. Workhorse dies.
  3. Summon Sharuum the Hegemon (use the colorless mana generated in step 1). As Sharuum enters the battlefield, the Mirrorworks/Minion Reflector trigger and Sharuum's ETB triggers are put on the stack (Sharuum's on top).
  4. Sharuum's ETB resolves, allowing for Workhorse to enter the battlefield.
  5. Workhorse enters the battlefield, triggering Mirrorworks/Minion Reflector again.
  6. Use Workhorse's mana ability to remove all +1/+1 counters to add four colorless mana to your mana pool.
  7. Workhorse dies.
  8. The Mirrorworks/Minion Reflector trigger for Workhorse resolves. Spend two colorless to create a copy of Workhorse.
  9. The Mirrorworks/Minion Reflector trigger for Sharuum resolves. Spend two colorless to create a copy of Sharuum the Hegemon.
  10. As copy of Sharuum enters the battlefield, ETB of copy is added to the stack.
  11. As copy/original Sharuum the Hegemon are both on the battlefield, legend rule is added to the stack.
  12. Legend rule resolves; choose for the real Sharuum to go to the graveyard.
  13. Copy-Sharuum ETB trigger resolves. Target original Sharuum.
  14. Original Sharuum enters the battlefield. As Sharuum enters the battlefield, the Mirrorworks/Minion Reflector trigger and Sharuum's ETB triggers are put on the stack (Sharuum's on top).
  15. Repeat from step 4.

So this leaves us with a copy of Workhorse each time this cycle of events is run. That in turn means infinite mana. That in turn means you can carry out the loop of infinitely creating copies of Sharuum the Hegemon (without involving Workhorse anymore) to return all your artifacts to the BF.

Correct?

There's just one thing that still bothers me. When you take off all of Workhorse's counters for mana, does it die right away? Isn't that a static ability that resolves when someone else gets priority? I'm not sure if I understand this correctly ...

NV_1980, thanks for your comments. The combo is not simple because of the stack. The combo starts with Mirrorworks/Minion Reflector on the battlefield, if you have Workhorse on the battlefield then you take off all the counters for mana and let it go to graveyard and then cast the commander. When Sharuum hits the battlefield there will be 2 triggers, Mirrorworks/Minion Reflector and Sharuum triggers (note 1), you want to stack so that Sharuum's ability return Workhorse from the graveyard first.

When Workhorse returns to the battlefield it will trigger Mirrorworks/Minion Reflector again, you can take off all the counters on Workhorse to let it die again and have 4 mana in the pool, spend 2 to create a token of Workhorse. Then let Sharuum copy trigger (from note 1) resolve by paying with the 2 leftover mana. Once the copy comes in you sacrifice the REAL Sharuum (go to graveyard) and have the token Sharuum ETB ability bring back commander from graveyard. Then Sharuum comes back onto the battlefield you are back to the same loop netting 1 Workhorse token with 4 counters. So you can end up with infinite Workhorses and infinite mana, which gives you the ability to return all artifacts from your graveyard. Please let me know if this is too long and confusing.
