Seat of the Synod Discussion

Hey, just stumbled upon your deck. One recommendation that I have for you is Artificer's Intuition. It works even better if you have some graveyard recursion because then you can discard fatties and recur them on turn 3-4.In your deck Artificer's Intuition can go fetch the following:

  1. Darksteel Citadel
  2. Seat of the Synod
  3. Vault of Whispers
  4. Sol Ring
  5. Skullclamp
  6. Everflowing Chalice
  7. Chromatic Star
  8. Executioner's Capsule

So... yeah that's 8 cards and you can add the other two artifact lands to help fix your mana. I love it in my deck.

Here are some things I like about my silas deck (or cards i would include if i was blue/black instead of blue/black red and therefore had the room) and that might consider including as well.

If you give silas double strike like with Fireshrieker or Grappling Hook he deals damage twice, giving you two triggers of his ability. (Alsowhen combined with deathtouch, silas will survive most combats)

If you like Riddlesmith you might also want to pick up a copy of Vedalken Archmage.

I'm a pretty big fan of Aqueous Form to help let your commander get through.

Mindslaver is pretty gross when you can repeatedly recur it.

Academy Ruins and Rogue's Passage are lands you might want to consider

Mycosynth Lattice, Darksteel Forge, and Nevinyrral's Disk are all decent individually, but if you get 2 or 3 of them out together, you can do some interesting stuff.

Mirrorworks is a sweet card for artifact decks and with Mycosynth Lattice, you get insane value.

Sculpting Steel and Phyrexian Metamorph are nice to copy your good artifacts.

Prototype Portal imprinting a Sculpting Steel, a Seat of the Synod, Sol Ring, etc is always nice.

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Tezzeret the Seeker , Kuldotha Forgemaster, Arcum Dagsson, and Muzzio, Visionary Architect can help find the artifacts you need.

Here's a link to my copy if your interested. Vial Renn Affinity

I like all of these inclusion, i amonkhet a big fan of the direction of black and green cards. I made som additions

Whirler Rogue good in General and a bomb in ub

Merchant's Dockhandthis might be to all in (?)

Thirst for Knowledge really good in ub, 23 card in blue

March of the Machines well.. Maybe?

Faerie Mechanist with a higher density of artifacts this might go in more decks.

Shape Anew strictly worse and harder to build Tinker

Fabricate

Batterskull

Cranial Plating i don't know about this one

Darksteel Citadel

Vault of Whispers Seat of the Synod i like sending a message by only including the two

Hibernation's End i love this card, so do you!

Well Helix Pinnacle is a good piece to a Kruphix, God of Horizons deck, along with Bloom Tender I mean you have Harmonize, Kodama's Reach and Rampaging Baloths which is nice. Kruphix can ramp to the Darksteel Colossus. Outside of that, the cards here are pretty mix and match. I have seen the urza lands used in commander decks, but they're pretty hit and miss.

You have some goblins, but none of real note in commander outside of Goblin War Strike. Maybe Coat of Arms, But that one can backfire if your opponent is running tribal as well.

You have some decent artifact support with Darksteel Forge Etherium Sculptor Seat of the Synod Darksteel Citadel and the Myr stuff you got, Orbs of Warding is deceptively useful (depending on Meta). Mindslaver can be fun. I mean it's not a whole lot to work with... but I mean I'm just pointing this out to help at this point.

Expedition Map and Wayfarer's Bauble are useful to the decks that don't have any green and need some ramp/mana-fixing.

That bloom tender can kinda go anywhere where green and mana are needed. So don't stress too much at finding a place for it.

All and all you have a pretty broad selection, I suppose the better question is, What kind of deck do YOU want? it's truly irrelevant what we suggest if the decks you can make are no fun to you. If something here fits in it, you're all the better for it, and save money. I might suggest making a post giving yourself a $400 or so budget, explaining what you like in terms of gameplay. Then the TappeDOut community can truly point you in a good direction. It worked for me in the past, now my Thada Adel, Acquisitor deck is by-far my favorite, and I have these insightful people to thank for it.

Quantumsandwich on Paradox engine vs artifact lands.

There is no rules reference to give you because the relevant text here isn't in the comprehensive rules, but rather on the card itself. Paradox Engine very clearly states "nonland" permanents, and Seat of the Synod very clearly says the word "land".

The best I can give you is rule 205.1:

205.1. The type line is printed directly below the illustration. It contains the card’s card type(s). It also contains the card’s subtype(s) and supertype(s), if applicable.
We can see that Seat of the Synod is a land because the type line tells us it is a land.

K34 on Paradox engine vs artifact lands.

I played cards tonight with a guy who adamantly insisted that Paradox Engine would untap his artifact lands like Seat of the Synod because they are artifacts in addition to being lands. Obviously I disagree, but he claims a judge told him this. Can someone give me a rules reference for him?

Just so you know, both Seat of the Synod and Vault of Whispers are not Modern legal.

Also invest in some artifact lands for Cranial Plating, Seat of the Synod comes to mind
