Sharuum the Hegemon Discussion

SynergyBuild on Protean Chromium, Elder Dragon

I specifically meant Sen Triplets, not Sharuum the Hegemon (the real artifact esper commander of choice other than Sydri, Galvanic Genius), in fact now that I think about it, Sen Triplets sucks as an esper artifact commander, and also Celestial Dawn isn't exactly an artifact combo.

Onto the combos themselves, and the reason Exquisite Blood/Sanguine Bond is not only better than them, yet they should never be in the decklist at all.


Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond are enchantments, so they can be Replenished/Open the Vaultsed back with ease after a Tunnel Vision/Traumatize, and the fact they need lifeloss is easy with an unblockable hexproof commander. Neither of your "combos" win the game, let alone can be Replenished.


Celestial Dawn + Caged Sun = Double you land mana, and give it perfect fixing, minus Ancient Tomb, which now only receives fixing, and Boseiju, Who Shelters All doesn't protect you stuff, ad your artifact mana is kind of sucky now.

See what happened, a 9 mana two card combo did worse than a Mirari's Wake, which is another way of saying it sucks, together. On their own, Caged Sun does very little ramping, and it outclassed by Thran Dynamo/Gilded Lotus most of the time, which I could make an argument that they were bad, and Celestial Dawn is even worse, with this deck already having an incredibly powerful landbase, it un-ramps you with Ancient Tomb and Boseiju, Who Shelters All sucks now.


Onto the next "combo:" This one you were kind enough to even put a reason for:

"Also Mycosynth Lattice + Unwinding Clock would be a similarly effective combo that would create tons of value that would support your Voltron strat/board state as well"

Okay, Mycosynth Lattice + Unwinding Clock untaps all of your permanents (lands, artifacts and creatures mostly), along with fixing each players mana perfectly, and leaving you open to a blowout with Hellkite Tyrant, By Force, Vandalblast or Shattering Spree.

Okay, so tons of value? I mean it has a major couple of downsides, this deck is fine on its own fixing, and it fixes for all of your opponents? it is 10 mana, and can't be cheated out by Replenish, so it comes late in the game, and your opponents can probably tutor a Vandalblast up be now, so tons of value? Lets, see, if we untap every one of our permanents, every turn, what ways do we have to abuse the excess of mana? 8 things, of which 5 are instants (Cyclonic Rift, Dark Ritual, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, and Vampiric Tutor), we can also move around Felidar Umbra a lot, activate Nomad Mythmaker, or Flickerform a little bit.

Underwhelming isn't it, we can use 8 cards, of which Cyclonic Rift and Flickerform are the only two good uses of it. 2 cards are benefited in a way that could have been done with out the combo.

Well, yeah, and the cards are bad on their own, so it is a trash combo in this deck, despite what you said.

Nice deck! This deck looks really fun to use, but there are a few combos which i don't understand how they go infinite. Main ones being: Sharuum the Hegemon + Mirrorworks/Minion Reflector + Krark-Clan Ironworks/Ashnod's Altar

Sharuum the Hegemon + Workhorse + Mirrorworks/Minion Reflector

Sharuum the Hegemon + Su-Chi + Mirrorworks/Minion Reflector + Krark-Clan Ironworks/Ashnod's Altar

There are more, but i do not wish to flood. Thank you!

Thanks Beebles! I know, my deck probably lacks a bit on the card draw department and also on ramp (To me it seemed ok, since I have few cards costing more than 5 mana). I'll look out for it.

Crown of Doom is really of no use in a mill sense, but certainly moves mana and attention away from me. What I'm trying to do is act as if I'm still not a threat and then blow everyone out, though I might reconsider it. Kindof Pillow Fort if you will.

I tried to put as little wheel cards as possible, just because I've already got a friend in my group that runs a Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder tribal wheel. The only wheel present here is Jace's Archivist, because can buy me a fresh hand of cards when I want or mill and can be used multiple times.

I'm considering adding more boardwipes, though my general strategy on spot removal is just kindof don't worrying about it. I can just let the big guys at the table chunk each other, while I set up and then mill them out.

I own an Altar of the Brood, but it doesn't fit much, since I don't put many permanents on the field each turn and if I draw it lategame is basically a dead draw. I think it could be a much more effective card in combo decks like Breya, Etherium Shaper or Sharuum the Hegemon when they start an infinite enter/exit the battlefield combo. On the other hand, I like Memory Erosion much more, because comes out as if my opponents are milling themselves out.

About Isolation Tower and Arcane Lighthouse, I think they are great ways to answer opponents, but, again, in my playgroup there are like 6 cards over 11 decks that have hexproof. Much like Sadistic Sacrament, those two lands are cards I don't need to run, but that should definitely fit in for a more competitive environment.

Madcookie on Would this version of card:Sharuum, ...

Its mostly for science but still---> Would the following create infinite loop similar to the Phyrexian Metamorph combo.

Sharuum the Hegemon is on the battlefield with Mirage Mirror. The mirror copies her and as state-based action I choose that she goes to the graveyard. Then while the mirror is still a copy of Sharuum I return her say with Argivian Restoration. Now we again have 2 Sharuums and I choose that the original dies as a statebased effect, while her ETB is on the stack but without selected target (since state-based supercedes other triggers) so after she is back in the GY her ability can target herself and just like Baron Munchausen she will pull herself out by the hair again and again to finish opponents off with Blood Artist or something similar.

wakawakawaka Sorry it took so long for me to respond, I've been really busy recently. It's Gearhulks mostly as a theme (kinda like my own custom tribe), Blightsteel Colossus is in there as a stupid combo with Nahiri, the Harbinger but I've been looking for a replacement that actually does something because as you said, it shuffles back in and doesn't work with the reanimation stuff. Sharuum the Hegemon seems like a cool combo especially considering she is an artifact so I'll have to do some testing with her.

Island, Mountain, Swamp, and Plains seem like potentially reasonable additions.

Honor-Worn Shaku is pretty neat with your legend focus. Also Thalia's Lancers. Even Yomiji, Who Bars the Way might be worth consideration. Legendary artifact creatures are also potentially pretty high value, like Memnarch, Silas Renn, Seeker Adept,Bosh, Iron Golem, and Sharuum the Hegemon; you get to meet your artifact synergies and legend synergies all in one go.

why limit yourself to gearhulks when Sundering Titan, Inkwell Leviathan, and Wurmcoil Engine exist? also note that blightsteel shuffles.Sharuum the Hegemon is also a consideration.

if you're going all in on god pharaoh's gift, Novablast Wurm, any of the phyrexian praetors with the exception of urabrask, Sire Of Insanity, and Griselbrand are fucking nuts if they get reanimated
