Ever since Kaladesh came out, artifacts have taken over my life. I've done some small works before then, Grand Architect and Pili-Pala for example, and used many other small bits but now I practically only run them and I can live without them. Looking through this deck has given me the gaul to push my love to EDH and if people hate my casual UB artifacts, this deck gave me ideas to make them hate me more. One other thing Prototype Portal and Mindslaver. 10 generic mana to control someone for the rest of the game is a pretty good deal don't ya think?

Can't wait to see what decks you got up your sleeve!

Yeah, you guys are right, my bad. Didnt read the second cost of Gonti's Aether Heart. But like Grind said, you can still mange to do it with Prototype Portal.

one way to get infinite turns out of Gonti's Aether Heart is to exile it under Prototype Portal and pump out a token copy before combat, blink 3 artifacts, exile the token to take extra turn. note that you can't blink the prototype portal because you would lose the imprint.

if you want another way to take infinite turns in brago you could just run Time Warp or Time Stretch and Archaeomancer, all of which are good cards individually.

So I am trying to use Myr Superion with Prototype Portal to create a bunch of tokens and have an army of 5/6's, and that's what the deck is gonna be built around. Would love any suggestions I can get thanks.

Rings of Brighthearth triggers any time you activate an activated ability. Activated abilities are ones that appear as "[cost]:[effect]" such as ", : Put a token that's a copy of the exiled card onto the battlefield. X is the converted mana cost of that card." found on Prototype Portal. If you pay the for Rings of Brighthearth's ability, you will copy the activated ability and get the full effect of it. The copy will resolve first, giving you a token copy of the exiled card, then the original ability will resolve, also giving you a token copy of the exiled card.

Would Rings of Brighthearth ability work with Myr Superion + Prototype Portal, so I can create two tokens at once or does that not work?

You beat me to it. As soon as I saw this little guy I wanted to make another landless EDH deck but I see I was far too late. Although, there are a few things I'd change...

  • Sensei's Divining Top: Allows for that easy access for when you don't have what you need.
  • Chromatic Sphere, Chromatic Star, Terrarion, and I could've sworn there was another one like Terrarion: These help you draw and keep the mana you have.
  • Trading Post, Ichor Wellspring, Mind's Eye, & Book of Rass: Need that draw. You're severely lacking.
  • Krark-Clan Ironworks: Super quick and easy ramp for how many 0-drop artifacts you run.
  • Scrap Trawler: This guy alone should quell all doubts for the the previous suggestions. Sac Terrarion to itself to get back a Lotus Petal, etc.
  • Metalwork Colossus: Much like your other affinity creatures, but comes with his own recursion system!
  • Cloud Key & Foundry Inspector: Further lower the costs of your artifacts alongside your already Helm of Awakening and Semblance Anvil.
  • Cultivator's Caravan: Possibily the best 3CMC mana rock since Coalition Relic.
  • Kuldotha Forgemaster: Sac 3 0-drops to get Mycosynth Golem. Worth?
  • Golem Foundry: While not being the best, dudes are pretty great and they easily sac to Krark-Clan Ironworks when needed.
  • Prototype Portal: Pop out endless Sol Rings thanks to Paradox Engine generating infinite mana or you know get Gonti's Aether Heart or Ugin's Nexus out over and over again for self-giving extra turns.
  • Inspiring Statuary: Put this one on the side burner in case you want to run more eldrazi or whatnot. This itself is a mana rock that only spends it's mana for non-artifact spells, but in a more non-heavy artifact deck, it could work wonders. Just keep it in mind if you decide to run more non-artifact threats.
  • Lifeline: While it may benefit your opponents, it keeps not only your creatures alive but allows you to hit with Hope of Ghirapur without the need of recasting with the commander tax.
