SaifurCommander on Making a Sharuum the Hegemon ...

So, I'm making a buy/trade list for an Esper Sphinx artifact deck. This list isn't including cards I already have, I'll add that as I go or as people suggest the cards I do have.

Basically, what I'm looking for is suggestions of cards to add or remove from this list.

Looks pretty solid. Its good to have both Ashnod's and Krark-Clan in the deck, they are very solid combo cards.

Have you considered Sharding Sphinx and Whip of Erebos?

You have quite a few Propaganda effects in there, have you considered Norn's Annex? It's either very color intensive or lowers life totals.

Hm. Under the radar suggestions for artifact synergy...I have an Oloro, Ageless Ascetic deck that I've geared toward artifacts (no pun intended) and here's what I've learned from piloting that deck:

Recursion is easily available in Black for any artifact creatures, such as Phyrexian Reclamation, Unburial Rites, etc. Artifacts are also good at recurring themselves, like through Scrap Trawler and Myr Retriever. So I wouldn't worry too much about recursion in Esper colors. Furthermore, you've got insane tutors in your colors, from Sphinx Summoner to Thalia's Lancers to Djeru, With Eyes Open...and since you're in the best flicker colors, you can use Conjurer's Closet, Ghostly Flicker, etc to re-use those abilities and other ETB abilities like Sharuum's or Filigree Angel.

I really love playing Chief Engineer and Inspiring Statuary for hidden little mana advantages. You could also go Thopter "tribal" with Sharding Sphinx, Thopter Spy Network, Efficient Construction, etc. All of that kinda lends itself to an "artifact aristocrat" deck of sorts, but other synergies just depend on how you want to build the deck. However, if you get a list put together, I'd be glad to take a look!

My comments lean away from combo, since that's not my playstyle, but you can also build using the aforementioned infinite combos.

If you are playing with Thopter Foundry, you should have the Sword of the Meek combo.

try adding Thopter Engineer for haste, Whirler Rogue to get damage through, and 1 - 2 x Sharding Sphinx as token making finisher. You Need more disruption 1 fatal push and dreadbore is not going to be enough in modern. Metallic Mimic or worse option can occupy the 2 drop spot.

I would remove: Ornithopter, Thopter Spy Network - too slow, and Mishra, Artificer Prodigy - because except for Ornithopter and Master of Etherium you other artifact targets die due to the legend rule or X=0.

Not sure how to say this...but Padeem, Consul of Innovation is a female Vedalken.

Also maybe you would like: Sharding Sphinx.

Still a cool deck. +1

Awesome deck seriously I love it! What a great use of those partners. Here's some quick ideas for you...

Vedalken Archmage, Scrap Trawler, Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Sharding Sphinx, Immortal Servitude, Master of Etherium, Scarecrone. I agree with Harvest Season it should be awesome. Happy gathering!!

You might be interested in Kuldotha Forgemaster to help tutor for what you need. Whir of Invention is also a good tutor

Muzzio, Visionary Architect is also fun, albeit a bit less predictable

Mirrorworks (even triggers off of your artifact lands), Sculpting Steel and Phyrexian Metamorph are nice for creating extra copies of things

Sharding Sphinx makes a lot of thopters

Chief Engineer and Grand Architect can help cast your bigger artifacts

Leonin Abunas can protect them

Personally I like Stuffy Doll more than creepy doll (it's also fun to slap a Pariah's Shield onto it)

Memnarch likes "borrowing" things

I'm not entirely convinced it's good enough here but figured i'd atleast mention Open the Vaults. If the game goes on long enough it's probably worth it

I think the the thing the deck is missing the most is more ways of interacting with your opponent. You have the 1-of dispatch but thats about it. Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Go for the Throat etc, but i think you need more.
