Shimmer Myr Discussion

I recommend Shimmer Myr as a strict upgrade to Vedalken Orrery, 1 less mana, and it has flash as well as your relevant cards

While you have a solid base, I would recommend some changes. Some of the clone/steal affects like Clever Impersonator and Phantasmal Image, Beguiler of Wills, Annex, Roil Elemental, ect, are just expensive and don't exactly contribute towards your core strategy. I would replace those with Foundry Inspector, Palladium Myr, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Unwinding Clock, Shimmer Myr, Whir of Invention, Paradox Engine, Treasure Mage, and Trophy Mage. Cards that let you take advantage of idle artifacts like Clock of Omens are fantastic, meanwhile I think Disallow and Spell Crumple are way too expensive for a counterspell. Mind Control, Persuasion, and Control Magic are just straight up bad cards, and Part the Waterveil doesn't exactly belong here either. Copy Artifact is great, but I think for the price Mirage Mirror is better. Lands are also important in an artifact deck, and so I would recommend, Expedition Map, Buried Ruin, Urza's Tower, Urza's Mine, and Urza's Power Plant. Finally, your commander is expensive, so Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are a must, plus they are artifacts.

Leptys on Gitrog Dredge Combo [Primer]

4 weeks ago


Tainted Pact is a card that first seems like an obvious pick for a deck that wants to rush into its "one-card" combo (Gitrog + Dakmor Salvage) as soon as possible, but unfortunately it really isn't that great here as the combo has so many moving parts in it. The deck also relies heavily on these moving parts, which is why exiling combo pieces can be a real pain if not a complete blowout.

Flipping a Kozilek is the main deal breaker as you never want to exile him, and to add he's more or less a completely dead draw. Furthermore, assuming we hit Dakmor it's another must-keep, even though it has at least some use outside of the combo. And finally, if we have any part of the combo in exile (which almost certainly will happen when we dig more than a dozen cards with Pact), we never ever want to exile our one-of Riftsweeper as then we lose access to the pieces permanently.

I will admit that I haven't counted the numbers on the odds of flipping these pieces, but seeing as there are potentially several cards that you will almost never want to flip off of Pact, it really has some bad blood with this sort of deck to be a viable tutor candidate (unlike in a deck that dives to their combo piece head-first or has several one-card wincons like Food Chain Prossh or Doomsday/Shimmer Myr Zur respectively).

Thanks for the recommendation though, it's not something that has been asked before so it's a good card to be discussed about.

Give a look at the new Ixalan cards, the Treasures mechanic could fit well in Breya.

Some random good cards:

Maybe add some more Shimmer Myr and more Myr Galvanizer. Personally, I like playing Myrs with Brass Squire with equipment and some indestructible gift. I personally think that this is better, but what you are doing could work too.

Worldslayer paired with Thorkitty's Hammer, or Shield of Kaldra or any other Indestructible-giving weapon.

Shimmer Myr is worth a look.Panharmonicon doubles Thorkitty's ETB effect - VALUE!

A couple more suggestions:

This may break a bit from the cat synergy of your deck, but Sigarda, Host of Herons is absolutely fantastic in an equipment deck. She allows your voltroned up creatures to dodge one of the best ways to deal with equipment decks: sacrifice effects.

You might also consider Shimmer Myr. It adds another level of redundancy for flash equiping when Hammer of Nazahn is on the battlefield.

Might I reccommend Leonin Shikari, Sigarda's Aid, Shimmer Myr, Balan, Wandering Knight, and less creatures with defender?
