Sharuum the Hegemon Discussion

Gidgetimer on Help choosing an artifact commander? ...

Out of curiosity, why Sen Triplets and not something that interacts with artifacts like Sydri, Galvanic Genius or Sharuum the Hegemon ?

Here's how it works:

Start with Disciple of the Vault and Sharuum the Hegemon out. Cast either Sculpting Steel or Phyrexian Metamorph , and have it enter as a copy of Sharuum. Legendary rule kicks in, you have to put one in the graveyard. Then, after it's in the graveyard, fake-Sharuum's etb triggered ability goes on the stack, allowing you to return an artifact from your graveyard to the battlefield. Choose the fake-Sharuum that just hit the yard, and it re-enters, allowing the loop. The Disciple of the Vault is there to convert the constant leaves-the-battlefield into life loss. There are a couple of variations and substitutions possible, but this is the basic version.

I'd like to try Halls of Mist and Silent Arbiter in a Turbofog-ish control deck and annoy the token spammers.

If you're on board with infinite combos, Sculpting Steel or Phyrexian Metamorph cause total life loss with Disciple of the Vault and Sharuum the Hegemon . Nice trick with the Lich's Mastery and Immortal Coil !

For the good cards ... I'm not a regular Sydri pilot, but here's a penny for my thoughts on this fun commander. Tamiyo's Journal is a good beater that plops out artifacts/draw. Faerie Artisans / Thoughtcast / Thirst for Knowledge are really good for this deck, Dispatch / Stoic Rebuttal is always good for redundancy. March of the Machines is good in case your commander gets tree'd or stolen . Mechanized Production might be good for Phyrexian Metamorph / Master of Etherium /tokens from Sharding Sphinx / Smothering Tithe etc.

For the weaker cards ... Planar Cleansing could be replaced with Hour of Revelation . Profane Procession  Flip/ Predator, Flagship could go because of its overall cost, and it doesn't do anything else over time or when it enters, and it doesn't fit the themes of the deck. Revel in Riches might be good with the amount of board wipes but you'll be targeted for it, it's an upkeep trigger (so people will have time to respond, and with sorceries). Treasure Map  Flip is rather weak because it turns into a land so you can't abuse it like an artifact, and is 5 mana to eventually draw 3 or maybe 3+ cards. Treasure Mage does 'draw' and the best big artifact to abuse, but it's overall 9 mana unless you have Master Transmuter or something, and doesn't get any wincon that I can see. Ruthless Knave takes a lot of hoops to get through to draw or ramp, but a lot of my criticisms were at the treasure cards so you keep that theme then drawing more cards for no mana is good. Palladium Myr is not ramp, it's just sadness. Sphinx of the Steel Wind is expensive for a 7 turn clock on turn seven, but it's fun because it could fit your meta and is protected from the colors outside your color pie.

For win cons ... Aetherflux Reservoir / Staff of Nin / Caltrops are all all-star with this commander, and Tezzeret the Seeker could fetch caltrops/aetherflux but non paradox engine etc. If you're interested in a combo win, you could do Sword of the Meek / Thopter Foundry , or Sharuum the Hegemon / Phyrexian Metamorph and something to abuse the etb loop like Altar of the Brood / Genesis Chamber / Contraband Kingpin / Disciple of the Vault / Blood Artist / Marionette Master etc.

Unlife on Sharuum the Hegemon Artifact Blink

1 month ago

I've been looking through few of my older decks, trying to update and improve them. I've overhauled this one white heavily, but it still feel clunky. I was hoping for some advice from people who run artifact/blink/sharuum decks. Things that have worked, that haven't worked, etc. It doesn't need to be cEDH competitive but I would like it to hold its own. Deck is linked below, I do have the usual Sharuum the Hegemon+Sculpting Steel/Phyrexian Metamorph+Dire Undercurrents/Disciple of the Vault/Bitter Ordeal combo built in. Thanks in advance

I already had Farseek in the deck but took it out along with most of the mana rocks to make more room for other cards. I never have any mana issues aither so I don't need more ramp I don't think.

Sylvan Reclamation is a really good card, it's Return to Dust for an extra mana, plus I need the artifact removal since we have a Sharuum the Hegemon artifact deck in our group that plays Mycosynth+Darksteel Forge with loads of other artifact combos.

I put Deadbridge Chant in for fun, didn't expect it to mount to much, haven't been able to play it yet though.

Hey all!

First off, a big apologies for the delay in getting back into this comments section. Work got the better of me for a week and I've hardly had the time to get on here! Thank you all so much though for pitching in :) It's beyond appreciated!

I'll address each of you individually in here as well, but as a bit of general information, v1.1 of the deck is only incorporating changes from hkhssweiss as his suggested cards were the only cards I was able to get my hands on before the work rush. I do have some from other user's suggestions, but I wanted to get my hands on all suggested cards, not just the few I had.

Thankfully, I do now have a decent amount of spare time on my hands and will be visiting my LGS to purchase and try out all card suggestions within the next couple of days.

@MillersEdge - Wow, dude, what an effort you put into that, thank you ever so much! It's quite clear you know your stuff :)

Regarding ramp, I can certainly appreciate your observation. The lack of mana rocks in this deck is definitely a big thing. I really like the idea of Coalition Relic, Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice and believe all 3 of these will make it into v1.2. Forest retrieval cards are nice but can become dud draws fairly quickly in the game. I've added both Nature's Lore and Three Visits to the MaybeBoard anyway and will play-test with them as well. I want to get both Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch in somehow too.

Phyrexian Scriptures has also made it onto the MaybeBoard. It's certainly an eye-catcher with all 3 abilities having relevance, and I do like the idea of Saga's (never played them before). In saying that, one of the common players at my playgroup has both a Sharuum the Hegemon deck and a Breya, Etherium Shaper deck. We'll see how it goes.

In terms of the prison related cards, I'm actually probably going to move away from this plan, as to do it effectively you do seem to dedicate a large amount of slots. However, Spike Weaver genuinely looks amazing. I've no doubts that he'll see some MainBoard action in the future.

Privileged Position is currently in for a late game pillow fort strat involving Privileged Position, Sterling Grove and Avacyn, Angel of Hope. To be honest though, the three of these cards might be swapped later for others anyway as they really only hold relevance to themselves. Or I'll simply add Shalai, Voice of Plenty as well as Privileged Position as quite a few other users are also recommending it. Armageddon is hated at my playgroup, but I don't mind being 'that-guy' every so-often ;) I'll play test it this week and see what the general reaction is.

The walkers got a pretty big shuffle around since you might have last seen the deck, but I do see the relevance of Tezzeret the Seeker and Garruk Wildspeaker. Tezzeret the Seeker could come in handy if I can increase my mana rock amount, and I think I prefer the idea of him over Garruk Wildspeaker. Will get back to you with results.

Leyline of Anticipation has landed in the MaybeBoard with high chances of being MainBoarded. I genuinely forgot all about this badboy!

Really really like the idea of Nexus of Fate, looking forward to seeing what sort of shenanigans I might be able to pull off with that. Savor the Moment is definitely competitive, but the late game appeal of Nexus of Fate is striking me more.

I'll definitely jump onto your list as well and have a fish around :) As well as throwing in my own 2 cents! Thanks again.

@Aragon_Neotrix - Thank you! Definitely hearing you regarding proliferate-able targets. I'm hoping to improve on that in the next iteration with counter based mana rocks etc.

Aetherworks Marvel is amazing, hardly surprising it was banned in standard eh?! I did admittedly forget about energy and experience counters. I'm sure this is going to make it onto the MainBoard.

I'll take a closer look over your own version over the next day or two for some more proliferation ideas, and will throw in any suggestions I have myself :)

@ManSauce - Man, every suggestion here is on point. Thank you so much!

Captain Sisay is a card that wouldn't have occurred to me. Very likely become one of the main tutors in the deck. Mox Amber and Noble Hierarch - Yep. Definitely keen on both. Ramp is becoming the main concern of the next update.

Plaxcaster Frogling is another one that I don't think I ever would have found. Interested to see how I can use it. Shalai, Voice of Plenty has received a few recommendations now. I'll be likely to find a spot for this too. Llanowar Reborn could pretty much be an auto-include.

I'm interested whether Finest Hour has held enough use other than when used in conjunction with Savor the Moment or Thrummingbird. Attacking just doesn't seem to happen very often for me.

I've jumped onto your profile and bookmarked your own version to go over in more depth. Thanks heaps for the suggestions :)

@DangoDaikazoku and @lifemtg - Thank you both! ^.^

@Jimmy_Chinchila Man I've been spamming Search for Azcanta  Flip in Magic Arena lately and for whatever reason it didn't even occur to me here! Thalia's Lancers is indeed solid but I think it might lack by comparison to some other tutors. Regardless it's been added to play testing.

Definitely hearing you regarding Doubling Season. Both Enlightened Tutor and Idyllic Tutor are likely to be MainBoarded after this next round of play testing.

Forgive me for the bulk of cards sitting in the MaybeBoard, my worst ability is choosing what has to come out! Aha. As mentioned earlier though, I've setup a large chunk of time to go through all current suggestions over the next couple of days and look forwards to coming back to cull the list :)

Thanks heaps for the suggestions, I've also bookmarked yours to go over in more depth!

@hkhssweiss - You're more than welcome my man! :) Thanks heaps for coming back again! Aha.

Not to worry regarding the planeswalker suggestions. I may be a little rash with my initial judgement of Vraska, Golgari Queen but admittedly the current objective has me focused on getting other utility spells in over planeswalkers.

Assassin's Trophy is amazing. I'd expect to see this in just about every G/B deck moving forward! Likely to make it in, just need to allocate a spot. Djeru, With Eyes Open is definitely one I hadn't seen before! His second ability might just make him a prime tutor candidate. Windgrace's Judgment is also phenomenal. Most of my games have 5+ people making this awfully attractive.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty has popped up 3 times now making her impossible to ignore! xD Pir, Imaginative Rascal is beyond amazing and as the more important part of Doubling Season is almost guaranteed a spot.

Thanks heaps yet again my dude! I do more than appreciate you sticking around :)

Ty all! Now to testing, woo!
