Quicksmith Spy Discussion

So with a little more thought and searching, I think I'm going to change the Conqueror's Galleon  Flip out for Quicksmith Spy... have it hit my Paradox Engine and now I can just tap and draw a card and then cast to untap and draw again. No need to spend mana to draw! I'll playtest to see if it's worth it, but I imagine it is.

I feel like having the near infinite combos that include your commander should be a must for the commander but I've never played this commander out myself.

Just in case if you don't know it's The Locust God + Blasting Station + Murder of Crows or Quicksmith Spy.

It'll be humorous if you could use Altar of the Brood or Sphinx's Tutelage to mill out your opponents.

Besides that your deck looks very solid!

Kyomeii apologies I am new to the page, but in my opinion since the edition of paradox engine it is near impossible to build an arcum deck that isn't tier 1.


that's my deck with arcum.Citanul Flute + Paradox Engine + Arcum DagssonThis allows me to cast my entire deck, Citanul Flute for a 0 drop creature ( Ornithopter ), cast it then use it for Arcum Dagsson to search for something to give mana ( Sol Ring etc.), then repeat with the Citanul Flute. then Aetherflux Reservoir or Walking Ballista to win. You can cast your entire deck this way,if you get down Quicksmith Spy you can infinite draw too, I like to cycle Junk Diver and Myr Retriever with Arcum Dagsson + Paradox Engine for infinite loop.

Hey, very good decklist! I was looking for other combos for the deck since I want to build it too, and Quicksmith Spy+Blasting Station with your commander lets you draw the entire library

zahlman, I like the idea of Quicksmith Spy in this style deck, but I didn't include it because it's a lightning rod for creature removal that would otherwise be pretty dead. I tried for a long time to even keep Hedron Crawler out, but it was just too important.

I could see Pyramid of the Pantheon maybe not staying in, but it drastically reduces the fizzle rate when we go off. It also let's us cast Reverse Engineer or Whir of Invention a turn earlier.

Interesting to see a different take on Paradox Engine. I like what you're doing with the Metalwork Colossus. I'd probably want to try Baral's Expertise more in the main deck to ensure Colossus can get through for damage.

When I played around with the engine, I went blue-green with Aetherworks Marvel and Aethertide Whale. With the Engine out, hitting a Whale with the Marvel immediately reloads for another spin. Add in some Peema Aether-Seer and Altered Ego to keep the spins coming and finish off with a Part the Waterveil so you get the first attack step with your instant whale army. Quicksmith Spy on an Engine or a random artifact (Decoction Module even) really takes off when the Engine is untapping the artifact many times per turn.

Something you didn't mention that I've seen in other takes on this deck: with enough mana rocks, Paradox Engine and Magnifying Glass out and a Metalwork Colossus in your graveyard, you can go infinite. The idea is to use the Glass to make a Clue token, free-cast a second Colossus from your hand, sacrifice that one and the Clue to call the first one back to your hand, rinse and repeat.

Another cool thing you can try is use Quicksmith Spy to make Key to the City into a much stronger draw engine. I don't think Pyramid of the Pantheon really helps you; sure it's ramp, but it works differently from the rest of the mana-cheating effects in the deck.
