Precursor Golem

Artifact Creature — Golem

When Precursor Golem enters the battlefield, put two 3/3 colorless Golem artifact creature tokens onto the battlefield.

Whenever a player casts an instant or sorcery spell that targets only a single Golem, that player copies that spell for each other Golem that spell could target. Each copy targets a different one of those Golems.

OH...ALSO...

Yes Myr Battlesphere combos with Ashnod's Altar / Krark-Clan Ironworks + Nim Deathmantle BUT you can ALSO use Eldrazi Displacer instead of Nim Deathmantle because Ashnod's & Krark have been errata'd to add colorless and not just generic mana.

AND you also get 1/1 Myr tokens because you don't NEED to sac them all to generate enough mana to blink/recur Battlesphere. So, you create 1/1 Myrs, then or however much you need, but yeah, you get infinite Tokens then Mana, as well as ETB/LTB triggers. Or mana then tokens (whichever you wanna do first lol)

Not sure if the infinite tokens was implied in your comment, but now everyone knows

Cloudshift would be good to bounce splicers to make more tokens, or on Precursor Golem to protect your golems and produce more at the same time.

I'm really liking the recent comments. I just updated my list with some of your guys' card suggestions.

@ejikazuma .....wow..really? I never knew that about Grand Architect and Nim Deathmantle That kinda sucks..a lot.. But, I have been thinking of cutting him for a while, so maybe that's all I needed to read to make the decision.

Also yeah, Myr Battlesphere is great in this deck. I've had him in for a while. So much so that I've considered putting in Precursor Golem as well, BUT..Battlesphere combos with Time Sieve + Academy Ruins ALSO..so..yeah lol I don't think I would take out Thopter Assembly though. That's just me.

@mtgApprentice21 YES! Mana Vault is great! I think many people overlook the fact that you can combo with Mana Vault, Sol Ring and Mana Crypt in this deck! lol

Also, that's a good point with Crucible of Worlds and the artifact lands...that's pretty dirty lol

Has anyone tried using Mirage Mirror in this deck yet? Has worked out pretty well for me so far ;)

Might also be a long shot, but anyone tried Mairsil, the Pretender??

Maybe some of you might wanna check out my list because I haven't really had any of the issues you're talking about. The only real issue I've faced is being color screwed..which brings this to mind...

Has anyone here tried or seen Breya lists that barely run any colored spells? Like, strictly artifact based combos??? No Felidar Guardian or any of the wincon cards such as Impact Tremors/Zulaport Cutthroat/Disciple of the Vault/etc, just strictly colorless artifacts that combo plus some tutors?

Though most of the deck is colorless artifacts, I do feel like I get screwed on color sometimes. And also if you have suggestions for my list, be my guest. I'm down to try out new cards.

I would cut Glorybringer, Hellrider, Precursor Golem, Retrofitter Foundry, Heat Shimmer and Treasure Map  Flip. To start with.

I might also think about adding Mogg Infestation and Snake Basket

Breath of Fury would be infinite combat rounds

@ecmmyers Thanks for the suggestions :). I started playing commander last year (due to the vampire deck <3 Edgar Markov) and I've heard of the tempt cycle, but wasn't familiar with Tempt with Reflections. I like Cackling Counterpart and Rite of Replication, which has been on and off my "to acquire" radar for awhile. However I'm not a fan of Precursor Golem. The 3/3 tokens do seem nice but can't be compared to the high-rolls I'm trying to achieve with the deck such as copied Doom Engine. If targeted with the mentioned above clone spells he's much better but as of now I think the card has much better home in something like a Zada, Hedron Grinder deck.

Some cheaper ways of getting (better) tokens: Cackling Counterpart (with Flashback), Dance of Many (annoying upkeep cost, though), Rite of Replication (always flashy), Tempt with Reflections, Precursor Golem could get out of hand.

Just a few fun suggestions for the clone theme!

Would Precursor Golem work?

Regoober on Brew Dick Lad, Tell Core "Engine Ear"

Here's how I think about this commander: You want two types of creature token. A) ones that are cheap/free to flood the board and B) ones that are copies of cool creatures with abilities you can exploit.

Your A Column is pretty solid. The only one I'd add is Genesis Chamber and/or The Locust God... Things that make Treasure or Clue tokens are pretty good because they'll add value OR attack. Additionally, Since lots of your small creatures are on ETB trigers Panharmonicon could be good.

Your Column B is so-so. You've got Feldon of the Third Path and Helm of the Host, but those are pretty slow and obvious. Mimic Vat, Heat Shimmer, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Rite of Replication, Supplant Form, Cackling Counterpart, Zndrsplt's Judgment and Fated Infatuation all could get you the token you need to make a deadly strike out of nowhere. An interesting combo here could be Precursor Golem so targeted instants make TONS of copies if you turn your army into golems. Creatures with Embalm and Eternalize Mechanics could fall into this category, too.

There's a Column C, too, I guess, which is creatures that get Attack triggers. Inferno Titan and Frost Titan come to mind, but just things to go ham when all your weenies turn into that thing.

Great Brew, man! I wish you luck and I look forward to how this evolves!
