Boza on Sharuum the Hegemon Combo

3 days ago

This combo is working indeed. Quoting Epoch from a couple of years ago:

The combo still works. You play Sharuum the Hegemon. Then, you play (or return to play) Sculpting Steel copying Sharuum. The copy's ETB ability triggers, but it isn't put onto the stack until after state-based actions happen. SBAs force you to put one Sharuum in your graveyard, and you choose to put the copy into your yard. Then, when the ETB ability is placed onto the stack, Sculpting Steel will be in the graveyard and therefore be a legal target for the ability. The combo also works with Phyrexian Metamorph.

Emphasis added for the relevant ruling.

Basically, you allow the trigger for Sculpting Steel to resolve. Then you instantly kill Sharuum the Hegemon with the legend rule while the new Sharuum etb effect is on the stack. This creates an infinite loop.

Think of how Amulet Bloom and any of the bounce lands work. You can tap in response to the ETB Trigger. This allows the land to etb and have an effect before the etb trigger.

I'm assuming you're asking about Arcbound Ravager in which case I would say... Maybe? I mean, you have artifact recursion in Mushroom herself and Roar of Reclamation, but those are really conditional. Besides, what artifact do you have that can benefit from having the +1/+1 counters put on them? You're not running Triskelion or Workhorse- or anything else with Modular, for that matter. So I guess you could run it, but it would be a stretch.

Also Faith's Reward and Open the Vaults should both be in here, as they can get your artifacts back from grave as well.

Also also, I'm not sure if you realized it when you put them in the deck, but Sharuum the Hegemon+Phyrexian Metamorph+Disciple of the Vault is an infinite lifeloss combo. You just keep having Mushroom go to grave instead of the command zone, and you can then infinitely recur Mushroom and the Metamorph due to the Legend rule placing one in the graveyard before abilities trigger and go on the stack.

I don't think you realize how useless draining 2 life from an opponent on your upkeep is. I wouldn't put Ghost Council anywhere near your commander deck. (Like, seriously, even having it on the table might bring you bad luck.)

Problem is, there aren't that many good commanders for white/black. Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter are two of the best and the rest aren't that great. Triad is the only one that's going to interact positively with blink.

You could consider adding a color. If you added blue Dromar, the Banisher would make an interesting commander, as you would negate one of the his typical drawbacks by playing creatures where you don't mind if they're bounced back to your hand. If not, Sharuum the Hegemon has a great ETB effect.

Activate Kuldotha Forgemaster's ability sacrificing two artifacts and Myr Battlesphere.

Dross Scorpion's ability triggers three times.

In response tap Chromatic Lantern, using that mana to activate Master Transmuter returning Sharuum the Hegemon to your hand and then putting it back on the battlefield.

Sharuum the Hegemon etb triggers returning Myr Battleshere to the battlefield with four tokens.

Dross Scorpion resolves untapping Kuldotha Forgemaster, Master Transmuter, and Chromatic Lantern.

Kuldotha Forgemater resolves fetching an artifact from library to the battlefield.

Loop net: Two 1/1 myr tokens and a tutor to battlefield, plus seven artifact etbs, four artifact ltb, six or seven creature etbs and four creature ltbs if anything is counting.

Weird and creative EDH decks that don't even need to win? Oh man this is my speciality. A friend of mine loves playing with me because I specifically play decks like this.

One of my favorite oddities currently is actually a Germ tribal deck that has Sharuum the Hegemon as the commander. Yeah, germs as in the tokens you get from Living Weapon equipment. It works surprisingly decently too.

Another weird deck style I have is using Xira Arien for group hug. It has Rakdos to compare to Grixis card draw pain, but that green allows for some new interesting stuff like Rites of Flourishing

If you want to mess with what colors shouldnt be doing, I enjoy this other deck that uses Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and makes people attack you for the trigger. I specifically made it a defensive styled monored deck, throwing in red walls that people don't tend to use.

A more functional deck style that can be odd is using Mistform Ultimus and throw in as much possible tribal stuff as you can. Examples being Myr Matrix or Lord of the Unreal. Slivers also helpful in these colors.

If you like these I could tell you some more weird decks I have. :3

Yes I would think so. Here is my ~$200 esper artifact/lifegain deck, Artifacts for Life!. If you take out all the life gain/loss related stuff, the expensive lands, and use either Sydri, Galvanic Genius or Sharuum the Hegemon as your commander, you should have a good base for an inexpensive artifact deck.

Also the as fadelightningmm said, there are a lot of good artifact cards that are in the red c14 pre fab deck which could go into an esper artifacts deck.
