Myr Battlesphere Discussion
12 hours ago
Thank you both for your comments. @VmanTo be honest i don't have any Wurmcoil Engine and while i love Steel Hellkite, that love is not enough to completely win my love for Tribal Strategies (still, it is always in the deckbox with a Mindslaver and a pair of Myr Battlesphere). @Shiway87win: i think that the PiliPala combo with Banefire or the Ballista has not its home in this deck. To me, it really needs a less aggressive and more combo oriented shell, which can tutor and preserve the pieces of the combo until turn 3-4.

I've run more mono green decks than you can shake a stick at. Currently I am running Selvala, Heart of the Wilds as a fatty beats deck and really enjoying it but it is very generic green.
My favorite non-traditional mono green was Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter. A mono green artifact deck is not something people expect to see and it had a surprising amount of synergy with cards like Fangren Marauder or Scrapheap. Green can do the token thing pretty well (Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, etc.) and when you pair that with primarily artifact creature tokens (Hangarback Walker, Myr Battlesphere, Maul Splicer etc.) a lot can be done with seemingly very little.
I scrapped the deck because I needed too many pieces to build Breya, but here was what I was running before. Just typing this makes me want to rebuild it :)

I also think some of the "detain" creatures are a waste. especially when there's plenty of exile creatures. Fiend Hunter Restoration Angel Angel of Serenity things like that. if you pair it with blink gimmicks, you detain something forever.
Also think a spell like Detention Sphere is meh in edh, unless you're naming like sol ring. i like Prison Term locks down a thing, and then can be moved to another thing. but that's just my personal preference... i find i have answers for misc things, what i like is being able to see what's played, and lock a new creature down.
other win-con ideas. swarm ball creatures like Myr Battlesphere
I also like Reality Acid in a deck like this.
i also think... altar of the brood is kinda meh. but maybe adding other etb mill creatures could help with that plan. also... maybe gilded lotus is too much, or tsabo's web. Even something like sphynx rev...is kinda meh. you'll get more action blinking mulldrifter or other draw/recycle cards if your engine is going. and the life... from rev is kinda meh. there's prob a few cuts for better cards. I'd kinda want more wraths. and maybe some bigger bodies. and trim out meh artifacts/enchants

So I actually built a very similar deck to this, which was centered around Fling and Myr Battlesphere. It was possible to get all four copies of battlespere relatively quickly and kill opponent as early as turn 4.Still love this deck, definite up vote

Well, you only have 10 artifacts in 100 Cards, so you basically still miss everything you might want in an artifact based deck.
It depends on where you want to go though, aggro, control, Combo...I guess aggro is the cheapest Option because you can avoid some of the most expensive staples (but artifacts are still sometimes quite expensive)
My Suggestion would be to bring powerful artifact creatures into Play by several cheap tricks. For example Wurmcoil Engine, Myr Battlesphere, Steel Hellkite...You should definitely Play Goblin Welder and Daretti, Scrap Savant, the both work well with Su-Chi and Cathodion, generate massive Advantage with Treasure Keeper and Scrap Trawler. Master Transmuter might be good as well. Memory Jar, Wheel of Fortune, Windfall to fill your graveyard are always good.
You also Need a lot of Speed, which you can get with artifacts: Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Grim Monolith, Voltaic Key, Mox Opal, Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Lion's Eye Diamond, Coalition Relic, Izzet Signet

Thank you! Her some more considerations:
We want "go big" and "copy/populate" the good stuff.- Delving a little deeper into artifacts allows some good lines of play. For example, Wurmcoil Engine, Myr Battlesphere can go out of hand quickly. Each copy of Wurmcoil Engine threatens the board and makes you super resilient against boardwipes with the "little" Wurm-tokens coming into play after the Engine died. It synergises well with Anointed Procession as it doubles the number of wurm tokens. Same goes with Myr Battlesphere. Both can flood the board without forcing "go wide" and provides good beater (especially the token-copy of Wurmcoil Engine and Battlesphere.Further, Torrential Gearhulk is a proper sized creature, allowing to flashback interaction or things like Fated Infatuation, Cackling Counterpart and especially Saheeli's Artistry to get even more copies of value creatures onto the battlefield. Lines like Torrential Gearhulk -> flashback [Saheeli'S Artistry] -> copy Wurmcoil -> copy Wurmcoil again are the dream. Or make two copies of the Gearhulk with the Artistry and flashback two other instants.Speaking of [Saheeli's Artistry], it synergizes very good with Phyrexian Metamorph. This clones is an Artifact in addition to its types and allows to get copied twice with Artistry.
Faerie Artisans create constantly new artifact creature tokens. Synergizes well with Artistry, targets to populate, fun card!
Supplant Form Instant speed tempo play and token generation, can be flashed back with Gearhulk
Reef Worm With every copy, this card escalates quickly and makes you incredibly resistant against boardwipes. Synergizes with every tokengenerator and copy-enabler Mimic Vat, Soul Foundry. First, the opponents laugh. But over the long run, they will cry!
Organizing every clone-token can be a mess and hard to track. If you want something to laugh about, get the Pokmon card "Ditto" from the "EX Delta Species" Edition. There are multiple different Ditto cards in which Ditto imitates other pokemon but still has Dittos derpy face expression! Sleeve it in a perfect fit sleeve and put a white sticker over the textbox to have a field to write on with a removable marker to write down which clone it is :D
Thats all :-)

Edit to previous comment, didn't see the Myr Battlesphere already existed on the list

If you want to include a token generator swarm generator consider using Mirror-Sigil Sergeant.if this guy goes unanswered he goes through an exponential growth pattern as his tokens make tokens so after 5 turns you have 16 4/4 trample creatures.and if you want an awesome creature to copy for yourself Myr Battlesphere just begs to be cloned because if you chose to give a token version of it unblockable from temmet you can be swinging in with 9 damage from tapped Myrs and 14 damage from the unblockable battle sphere, and that's if you only have 1 clone!
I hope these suggestions help but this is already a pretty sweet list so it may not help at all
