Sculpting Steel Discussion

Reflecting Pool will add colorless due to colorless being a type of mana. Command Tower on the other hand will not produce any mana. As for the absence mana rocks, I figure this deck is just trying to steer well clear of any well defined lines of play! Rings of Brighthearth is a good one though.

Anyway, some weird suggestions to keep with the experimental theme of the deck:

Pyxis of Pandemonium, Eternal Scourge, Serum Powder, Elsewhere Flask, Perpetual Timepiece, Sculpting Steel, Ward of Bones, Thespian's Stage, Mirrorworks and Shimmer Myr. :D

Since Panharmonicon is the best card in your deck, you'll want to use things like Copy Artifact and Sculpting Steel.

AER will be introducing Trophy Mage which for me will be tested. Fetches up Ashnod's Altar, Chromatic Lantern, Sculpting Steel, and Shimmer Myr. Kind of limited (I don't run all the cards mentioned) but it does leave a body and fetches a main combo piece.

Also Spire of Industry will be a thing :p

Just got back to computer access so I'll respond to all the comments here in order now, thanks for all the upvotes by the way!

I love Astral Steel but its just such a bad card haha, if I'm playing for flavor I'll definitely add it!

Ornithopter sadly isn't a vehicle or he'd definitely get included.

I only run Neglected Heirloom  Flip because its so cheap and I don't particularly care about what my equipment does. Loxodon Warhammer is powerful, but just too expensive for what I want.

I added Sensei's Divining Top, Alhammarret's Archive and Endless Horizons and will test Scrap Trawler.

I have added Monastery Mentor over Kemba. I'm still considering Sculpting Steel and Prototype Portal but they are kinda expensive and only good if I have another expensive artifact out already.

I was considering the tron lands but decided I have so few lands that I want mostly plains and the nonbasics I opted to use are mostly land destruction stuff.

Hello Dangerwillrobinson79!
I'm still looking for the artifact lands, as soon as i can get my hands on them i'll put them in the deck, but maybe switch out some basics. Lands like Boros Garrison help me fix my mana and are cheap.
About Purphoros, God of the Forge, it's very good and help chip my opponents life and is one of the combo pieces with Sharuum the Hegemon + Sculpting Steel.
This deck is far from complete, i'm still trying out many cards. But i can assure you it's very fun!

Chaotic Fun Braids, Conjurer Adept, nice.

May I offer a sub-theme? Paradox Haze.

Paradox Haze with all the enchantment copiers (Copy Enchantment, Clever Impersonator, Mycosynth Lattice + Phyrexian Metamorph / Sculpting Steel / Copy Artifact)

I offer this sub-theme purely for how explosive it could potentially be with cards like Braids, Conjurer Adept. If you had all of those Paradox Hazes out, that would be 6 upkeeps per turn. You literally dump your hand, so long as they're all non-enchantment permanents. This kind of deck makes me think Eternal Dominion would be a REALLY good card. Search your deck up to 6 times per turn, dumping out all the enchantments, including cards like Fool's Demise and False Demise. Attaching those buggers onto Braids, Conjurer Adept to keep her out and on the field because you can't cast spells after casting Eternal Dominion.

If you plan to run with this theme, I would suggest a few cards like:

  • Gate to the AEther: Still be chaotic fun when someone doesn't have anything in hand.
  • Strionic Resonator: Can use this useful guy to double either Paradox Haze or Braids, Conjurer Adept.
  • Followed Footsteps: Up to 6 (7 w/ Strionic Resonator) token buddies!
  • Lifeline: Another way to keep Braids, Conjurer Adept and other various creatures alive. Would recommend an exile card or two in the case of threats.
  • Call to the Kindred: If you want to go for a Human/Wizard theme (pretty strong imo, especially with cards like Azami, Lady of Scrolls).
  • Chronozoa: Laugh like a madman when you play this guy.
  • Ghirapur Orrery: In the case you lose your hand, DRAW 3!... all before Braids, Conjurer Adept's triggered ability.
  • Mind Unbound: One card, two card, four card, sixteen. 32 oh wait, I just drew my deck and lost the game... Best run that Laboratory Maniac + Leyline of Anticipation / Vedalken Orrery
  • Sun Droplet/Venser's Journal: Great ways to stay alive vs aggro decks.
  • Tamiyo's Journal: Draw or tutor. Up to you.
  • Tetravus: Laugh and then cry at all the math you have to do...
  • Thassa, God of the Sea; Scyring is pretty good.
  • Timesifter: Magicalhacker suggested this, but I think it could be hilarious with a high CMC deck this may end up becoming, in duplicity with the multiple upkeeps. However, it is a little less fun because people often get upset about losing a wincon or two.
  • Well of Ideas: Not an upkeep card, but decent in it's own right.
  • Curse of Echoes: Not an upkeep card, but I noticed you left it out in your opening post, so I thought I might mention it in the slight chance you didn't know about it!
  • Let me know what you think, and if you end up liking my idea, tag me when you make the deck!

    Have you considered Sculpting Steel? It would be really great paired with an Ensouled Vault Skirge; kind of like a Fated Infatuation minus the ridiculously hard to cast CMC.
