Semblance Anvil Discussion

holy shite, mate! this looks really nasty! I've also often dreamed of doing an angel deck :) if you want your ladies out faster, I'd highly recommend Semblance Anvil :) also, if you're willing to lose instant speed, I find that Revoke Existence is superior to dienchant :) I really like this deck, my man. And I look very much forward to reading the description

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.

    lagotripha - Metalwork Colossus cant be ramped via Frogmite and Myr Enforcer because both are creatures (and colossus reduce cost by non-creature artifact) else it be interesting so. In try to no lose the identity of deck, the midrange tax is more interesting.In my testing Thoughtcast although great card, seens slow in first turn to arrange to pieces. by the Semblance Anvil redundance, i try before copies of Etherium Sculptor, but it loses slot for Lightning Greaves because Master Transmuter + Greaves do a lot of work.

    but Cogwork Assembler is a interesting card for late, ill try this

    Sorry, too used to Whispersilk Cloak/Champion's Helm. I guess rushing to Metalwork Colossus via Frogmite and Myr Enforcer would probably be interesting. Just plan through yout turns 1-4 well and playtest and the kinks will work out. Semblance Anvil for another few heartless alternatives will help.

    Since you're going infinite anyway, Impact Tremors could be replaced with Altar of the Brood without any issues, easing any mana concerns, leaving just plains and swamps, since taplands are a thing you just put a bunch of swamps, a single plains and some Orzhov Guildgate and Scoured Barrens. Blue might be more efficient to try and resolve Etherium Sculptor, /Foundry Inspector serving as backup copies of summoning. Golem's Heart/Grinding Station deserves to be in the sideboard. Myr Retriever goes infinite with two copies in hand without renewal if you have a sacrifice outlet like Spawning Pit, or with a copy of Scrap Trawler or Sculpting Steel.

    I messed around a bunch trying to get Enduring Renewal/Time Sieve to work, but it never came together into something I liked playing with.

    on a less budget note, Inspiring Statuary could function well. Krark-Clan Ironworks is it's usual broken self. Semblance Anvil/Cloud Key are also copies of summoning.

    I like it. Check out Urza's Incubator Semblance Anvil Obelisk of Urd and Door of Destinies as they're all great for tribal.

    Seems good! Mana base could use a little work, but of course I recognize that it's always an issue of budget. Still, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and Forbidden Orchard always do good things for cheap.

    I think that this deck could use a Semblance Anvil and a Null Profusion. Both would help you find your proper combo pieces. Have you considered Open the Vaults as another clone of Second Sunrise?

    Without a way to use her in a combo, I personally think that Saheeli Rai is trash here. Also, Tezzeret's Ambition is pretty bad and I would use Thoughtcast or Rhystic Study or Vedalken Archmage or Necropotence instead.

    Hope this helps! :)

    I'm going to go through it by card types & make suggestions based on what I see missing or might be beneficial.


    Boros Signet & Lightning Greaves are a must for this deck. You might consider Stormrider Rig since you've got Hero's Blade. There'should also O-Naginata & Umezawa's Jitte, the Swords of X&Y, Hedron Matrix, Grafted Exoskeleton, etc. As for making things cheaper, Semblance Anvil could be hilarious.


    Sram, Senior Edificer might be worth running (in the same vein, Sigarda's Aid exists). You might consider Goblin Rabblemaster or Kemba, Kha Regent for sheer numbers. Boros Battleshaper is hilarious. Kor Cartographer, Knight of the White Orchid & Oreskos Explorer all ramp for pretty cheap.


    Grasp of Fate & Berserkers' Onslaught are pretty great.


    You need Swords to Plowshares/Path to Exile. Maybe Rout & Chaos Warp.


    Myriad Landscape, Sacred Foundry, & Clifftop Retreat are great. Plateau hasn't really gone up (or, more importantly, DOWN) in awhile so, you might grab one if you find the money for it.


    Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Blasphemous Act, Indomitable Creativity, Fumigate; sweepers are important & with so many options, there's no reason not to run at least two. Open the Vaults is something I actually expected. If you do go with it, you might consider running things like Renegade Map or Wayfarer's Bauble.
