DVLuca on Any seats left on the bandwagon?

Hi Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor, a few day ago I've seen a game with Muldrotha, the Gravetide and I can assicure you that Cavern Harpy do her gorgeus things. For the rest, Phyrexian Metamorph may change into Stunt Double, it doesnt copy artifact but the flash is realy attractive. I generaly love to take the max value from every build and I think Cloudstone Curio is well fitted here and I adore the fact that it doesnt target.... But Sylvan Library?? joke aside, I like the building and Pernicious Deed.....I dont know how much I love this card..... +1 for me!

Personal choice here, but I would run Clever Impersonator over Phyrexian Metamorph

Are you sure you dont want a couple more lands in here as well? 30 seems a bit low for a multi-color deck even with lots of mana rocks...

I think Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are the two best ramp spells, and land ramp faces less disruption than artifacts or creatures. Consider Phyrexian Metamorph too.

I'm building a very similar deck. I'm considering running Enter the Infinite and Laboratory Maniac (and Leveler) as a floating win con, in case the ETB effects can't keep up. Though Rite of Replication and Clone Legion seem a lot more fun.

I have more Merfolk than you, so Stonybrook Banneret is key. Particularly since Blue ramp is mediocre.

Re: card draw, I've got Brainstorm, Opt, Arcane Denial, and Open Into Wonder. Rhystic Study seems hard to beat.

Other creatures you might like: Sower of Temptation, Identity Thief, Vendilion Clique, Merfolk Trickster, Aven Fogbringer, and various shapeshifters like Clone and Phyrexian Metamorph.

Overall, I'd add more creatures and cut some of the artifacts, so that you have at least 3225 creatures. I'd cut Meekstone and Wayfarer's Bauble.

Kuldotha Forgemaster can take Combustible Gearhulk's slot- no one should ever let you draw 3 cards and you don't have enough recursion to make the mill side of that ability that threatening (I see Daretti, Sun Titan, Sharuum, and Scrap Mastery, but you run no tutors to get them outside of Tamiyo's Journal and only have a few draw spells so you may never see them together in a game).

Tezzeret the Seeker might be pretty advantageous here too as he can just grab the combo piece you're missing, ramp you, or provide a reasonable finisher. That's a lot of flexibility.

Thopter Foundry with no Sword of the Meek? Why? It plus Foundry and Ashnod's Altar/Krark-Clan Ironworks = infinite life and thopters.

Sword of the Meek could take Unwinding Clock's place- you don't run that many instants so untapping rocks is meh, and honestly the most it's doing in this deck is giving you pseudo-vigilance.

I'm really not big on Sharuum as one time recursion- he can win the game with Disciple of the Vault and Sculpting Steel or Phyrexian Metamorph, but that'd be another combo independent of your Commander. I think he's just a more expensive Beacon of Unrest in this deck as it stands.

bobbyboo on Izzet an artifact storm? Yes, it iz.

Retraction Helix should find a slot. If you go myr then Myr Galvanizer with Phyrexian Metamorph and Sculpting Steel et all to Max Myr Combo. Servo Schematic is really great value for what it does.

Cloud of Faeries, Peregrine Drake, Great Whale, and Palinchron are all great combo enablers here. Clones also further this cause (or any other ETB), I run Phantasmal Image, Phyrexian Metamorph, Clever Impersonator, Stunt Double, and Dack's Duplicate personally.

I'd also suggest Equilibrium as a 2nd Cloudstone Curio option that also lets you bounce your opponents creatures. Temur Sabertooth is another great option, I run all 3.

servantman Haha yea its pretty amazing getting to pick the type of permanent when it has multiple types, thats why I have Phyrexian Metamorph in the deck over some other clones. I dont like artifact lands because when someone wipes artifacts then they go too, I know the citadel is indestructible but its colourless mana and I could only play it as an artifact if I had Exploration on the field.

Dryad Arbor for me is the same issue, it gets wiped when creatures do, and Im not using GSZ to make the most of it on turn 1.

Smokestack I agree is an amazing card and one Ive considered adding, Ill play test it at some point. I played a game recently where someone played Mana Vortex and I came out better than anyone else so I can imagine Smokestack would be even better
