Worldgorger Dragon+Animate Dead is a step in order to generate advantage some other way. Such as having a mana rock out and tapping it each time in response to the exile trigger to make infinite mana, or tapping Scepter of Empires for damage.

Throne of Empires , Scepter of Empires , Crown of Empires , Throne of the High City ... Actually REALLY ANY card with the MONARCH MECHANIC is an amazing flavorful, fun, and on-point mechanic for Kenrith. I recommend searching for all monarch cards.

Hey while I don't think this cycle is all that amazing in this deck as it is now, I feel it fits the theme of the deck perfectly Crown of Empires, Scepter of Empires, and Throne of Empires.

I'm also sure minor adjustments could be made to help you assemble the set, such as more tutors. Perhaps Beseech the Queen as to remain on theme.

These are a few cards you could consider Hangarback Walker, Retrofitter Foundry, Skullclamp, Batterskull, Sword of Vengeance, Commander's Sphere, Expedition Map, Underhanded Designs, Price of Fame, Curtains' Call, and Go for the Throat.

Perhaps you could also try out these three Throne of Empires, Scepter of Empires, and Crown of Empires. I don't how good these would really be since I've never actually seen anyone try to assemble them, but there is part of the charm. I think this commander could pull it off. She has the recursion so you don't need to worry about losing them early and since she is Black, it lets you run more than enough tutors to go get them.

Thank you kamelyan for you suggestion ! I will definitely include Liquimetal Coating. I just realized how much potential you can get out of that with you commander on the board. I took a look at your deck and im gonna try to include the Crown of Empires Scepter of Empires and Throne of Empires synergy, which looks pretty interesting for commander. In combination with an Unwinding Clock and some mana rocks ofc to activate the abilities = Ouch :)

You can use Argent Mutation for the jankiness; turn an opponent's creature into an artifact, then force them to sac it. Liquimetal Coating does the same if you target a creature. But what if they can't be targeted? Glaring Spotlight and/or Arcane Lighthouse.

Faerie Artisans is a fun card.

Filigree Familiar, Junk Diver, and Workshop Assistant all get you an artifact from the grave when you sac them to Arcum's ability. Throw in Scrap Trawler to back them all up.

I blindsided my four opponents when playing my janky-Dagsson deck. I used Unwinding Clock with token generators (like Nuisance Engine), and I used creatures who drop in more artifacts (like Thopter Assembly and Myr Battlesphere), in order to tutor for fun combo pieces (Throne of Empires, Crown of Empires and Scepter of Empires) and the game-winning combo Stations (Summoning Station -> Grinding Station -> Salvaging Station -> Blasting Station).

Yes, I want some of those - and Citadel would make a great addition - but don't have the resources to get many new cards for my decks at the moment :)

Tarnished Citadel is on my list along with City of Brass, Grand Coliseum and Nomad Stadium for lands, and Jade Monolith, Staff of Nin, Scepter of Empires and Torture Chamber for atifacts (Acorn Catapult already being in the deck). I also had Rod of Ruin in here until recently, but started to attend EDH tournaments and felt it was suboptimal :)

Oh, and there's the odd Witch Hunter, too.

(Ancient Tomb is totally beyond my budget...)

I also consider some cards that force my opponents to attack, such as Arcum's Whistle, Bullwhip or Oracle en-Vec.

If you have any other propositions, please share them :)
