Soul Foundry Discussion

Thank you! Her some more considerations:

We want "go big" and "copy/populate" the good stuff.- Delving a little deeper into artifacts allows some good lines of play. For example, Wurmcoil Engine, Myr Battlesphere can go out of hand quickly. Each copy of Wurmcoil Engine threatens the board and makes you super resilient against boardwipes with the "little" Wurm-tokens coming into play after the Engine died. It synergises well with Anointed Procession as it doubles the number of wurm tokens. Same goes with Myr Battlesphere. Both can flood the board without forcing "go wide" and provides good beater (especially the token-copy of Wurmcoil Engine and Battlesphere.Further, Torrential Gearhulk is a proper sized creature, allowing to flashback interaction or things like Fated Infatuation, Cackling Counterpart and especially Saheeli's Artistry to get even more copies of value creatures onto the battlefield. Lines like Torrential Gearhulk -> flashback [Saheeli'S Artistry] -> copy Wurmcoil -> copy Wurmcoil again are the dream. Or make two copies of the Gearhulk with the Artistry and flashback two other instants.Speaking of [Saheeli's Artistry], it synergizes very good with Phyrexian Metamorph. This clones is an Artifact in addition to its types and allows to get copied twice with Artistry.

  • Faerie Artisans create constantly new artifact creature tokens. Synergizes well with Artistry, targets to populate, fun card!

  • Supplant Form Instant speed tempo play and token generation, can be flashed back with Gearhulk

  • Reef Worm With every copy, this card escalates quickly and makes you incredibly resistant against boardwipes. Synergizes with every tokengenerator and copy-enabler Mimic Vat, Soul Foundry. First, the opponents laugh. But over the long run, they will cry!

  • Organizing every clone-token can be a mess and hard to track. If you want something to laugh about, get the Pokmon card "Ditto" from the "EX Delta Species" Edition. There are multiple different Ditto cards in which Ditto imitates other pokemon but still has Dittos derpy face expression! Sleeve it in a perfect fit sleeve and put a white sticker over the textbox to have a field to write on with a removable marker to write down which clone it is :D

Thats all :-)

If you want to use the Brothers' ability, try Felhide Spiritbinder, Flamerush Rider, Flameshadow Conjuring, Heat Shimmer, Twinflame, Mimic Vat, Minion Reflector, Mirrorpool, Soul Foundry or Soul Separator.

Most of these are only temporary, so you could add Sundial of the Infinite to get around the EOT triggers.

As a singular entity, one Brother is not going to cut it unless you go voltron like you suggested. I think goodstuff.dec is where you want to be heading.

As most people have already pointed out, look for blue effects that copy other things (e.g. Rite of Replication). Some nice interactions I haven't seen mentioned yet include Mimic Vat, Minion Reflector and Soul Foundry. As an extra bonus, play Back from the Brink! It's a niche card, but it essentially gives Embalm to all of your creatures.

Hope this helped a bit.

If you go 5 color, gotta run the guildgate win con Maze's End. Mechanized Production is easy to slip in with other goodstuffs like Prototype Portal, Soul Foundry, and a ton of other cards that copy artifacts.

Darksteel reactor is always fun too. Azor's Elocutors is also one of those 'tick-tock win cons.

Mortal Combat may synergize well with whatever you are using to trigger lab maniac.

Im not sure if Coalition Victory is legal, but if so it seems legit.

And if you want the most epic of in-your-face wins, its gotta be Barren Glory. But good luck with that one, haha, it requires too much support I think.

I just happened to find this deck and have a suggestion. One card I usually put into my Sliver decks is Soul Foundry. If it isn't pauper legal, then just disregard this comment. Otherwise, it's something to consider for such decks. The only problem is deciding which Sliver to imprint on the Foundry (usually).

@xmistfitxzviprx - Birds of Paradise is a great card, to be sure. It just doesn't play with counters. Not sure it'll find a spot in here.

@feyn_do_alduin - Thank you for the kind words!

  • Bow of Nylea is very versatile, which is great in edh. It's a good card! I was thinking I would never use the counters, but then I thought about using them on Ezuri himself, and I was sold. I'll try to fit it in!

  • I had not seen Soul Foundry before. The only downside with this is that, should the artifact be destroyed (a common occurrence in edh, as I'm sure you know), then I would lose the creature. But , that said, it's still a good card, and U'll see if I can squeeze it in the build.

  • Master Biomancer is one I hear often. The only issue with this is that it gives counters to creatures before they hit the board; meaning, they won't trigger Ezuri. Now obviously I have creatures that are already too big, but I want as many experience counters as I can get, since that's how the deck grows. Thus, although it is a great card, Biomancer will most likely not see play in my build. Were this an Atraxa, Praetors' Voice build, however...

You asked about what to put in if the infect cards were cut. I've actually been considering removing that aspect, myself. My playgroup has been engaged in a rather cancerous arms race as of late, with the likes of Sen Triplets, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, and Sliver Overlord. So I'm trying to clean up our group. Were I to cut infect, I would go full-blown token generation. I would introduce such cards as Hangarback Walker, Awakening Zone, Hornet Queen, as well as Parallel Lives and Primal Vigor on top of the already included Doubling Season. What do you think about that? Let me know :)

Love the deck! it's wonderfully eeeeeeevil work of madness. That said, I have three suggestions;

-Bow of Nylea for counters, combat tricks, and probably the most important role: refilling your library for those long drawn out games with weary opponents.

-Soul Foundry combos with most of your creatures and is flexible enough in this list to allow for all kinds of plays from control to aggro to big stompy at a drop of the hat. notable targets are; Glen Elendra Archmage, Reclamation Sage, Kalonian Hydra, Avenger of Zendikar, freakin Eternal Witness!

NOTE: you can generate the token at instant speed for extra versatility!

Master Biomancer because who doesn't want more counters, right? besides, you have all the other great counters suppost cards here, why not one more? #winmore

that said; if, say, I wanted to remove the infect mechanic from the deck what would you replace those cards with to maintain synergy and speed?

MagicalHacker on The Bones To Build Your Tribal Deck

Well, for those of us that use this resource when building our tribal decks, it would be nice to see cards that pump any chosen tribe, draw based on a chosen tribe, make tokens based on a certain tribe, etc., which Soul Foundry and other effects like it are very good at doing.
