Have you thought of running Ornithopter, Shield Sphere and Phyrexian Walker instead of the three kobolds in order to increase the chances of activating Metalcraft for the Mox Opal?

I found myself wishing I would have, alot more often than I thought I would (though I didn't test them yet). I think that the Artifact type is irrelevant as directing spot removal towards a vannila 0 drop is not worth it and the format doesn't run alot of mass artifact removal.

If you are looking for more costed spells to cast, its hard to leave out Ornithopter, Memnite, Shield Sphere, and Phyrexian Walker. And since you're in also, you have access to Kobolds: Crimson Kobolds, Kobolds of Kher Keep, and Crookshank Kobolds. I don't know if that helps or not, but it would be fun...

I think you should look into running Enduring Renewal and a few costed artifacts, like Ornithopter, Memnite, Shield Sphere, and Phyrexian Walker. It would synergize nicely with Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, Sai, Master Thopterist, and Artificer's Assistant. It would be something fun to play around with, and could make a wincon.

By the way, you've got two Padeem, Consul of Innovation listed.

Shield Sphere should definitely get in here.

Also, you should definitely consider staxier pieces like Meekstone and Marble Titan. You could also do with more wrath effects like Fell the Mighty, Retribution of the Meek and Dusk // Dawn.

Also, Tree of Redemption?

I would suggest changing out some of your creatures for cheaper costing artifact creatures like Wall of Junk Shield Sphere and Ornithopter which I see that is in your maybe board. Having more artifact creatures that you can stack the search is always a good thing.

Maybe include Dazea good counter spell that you can use when you're Tapped Out.

Also Swiftfoot Boots or some type of protection for your commander.

I play him as a commander as well but competitive so when I read your description I was sure the great machine was speaking of walking Ballista but I don't see that on here so which card is the great machine? I'm just curious cuz I don't see the cards for any of the win conditions that I'm familiar with.

+1 for the deck...

But this deck doesn't really show how to rube-goldberg Machine it all up.


Here's how:

Paradox Engine + untapped Arcum Dagsson + any artifact creature:

Tap Dagsson to sacrifice the creature, fetching Citanul Flute, tap the flute, fetch any of the at least 2 other 0 drop artifact creatures (Phyrexian Walker, Ornithopter, Shield Sphere, or Memnite) in the deck to hand, cast it, untapping dagsson and the flute. Fetch Gilded Lotus, tap the lotus for , then the flute to fetch the last 0 drop in your deck.

Cast the 0 drop, untapping dagsson, the flute, and the lotus, get 6x with the flute, sacrifice the 0 drop to fetch Thran Dynamo, tap it for 6x and . tap the flute, paying to fetch Myr Moonvessel, cast it, untapping your rocks and the flute and dagsson, tap the flute and pay to fetch Scrap Trawler, leaving 9x and left floating, cast it, untapping your rocks, and the flute, leaving up 10x and .

Pay the mana to fetch and cast every single creature in your deck in this method, by tapping and untapping the rocks, then loop sacrificing Myr Retriever bringing back two 0-drops with Scrap Trawler, casting them, and sacrificing Junk Diver to bring back a 0 drop and Myr Retriever, then casting them and sacrificing Myr Retriever bringing back Junk Diver and a 0 drop, you may repeat this infinitely until you get infinite mana and every non-creature artifact in your deck except for Grafdigger's Cage. You may "fail to find" an artifact so you can get more sacrifices than non-creature artifacts.

With infinite mana, dump it into Staff of Domination, drawing all of your deck. Use Capsize to bounce all of your opponent's permanents. Hold your countermagic, and Capsize or any other number of cards you want, and Scroll Rack the rest onto the top of your library.

Because of Aetherflux Reservoir and your infinite casts, you have infinite life, you also have infinite mana, and infinite bounces, etc. You can pass the turn, and repeatedly Capsize your opponent's lands, or counter any real spells they cast, all while they slowly mill out, and whenever you draw the last card of your deck, Scroll Rack it all back in. If you are ever about to lose, Aetherflux Reservoir them to death, or just let them mill out.


Now that is a rube-goldberg machine!
