Hi n0bunga,

I must say that I love this deck. I'm trying to build something similar now. I have to ask You for some cards exclusion. Could You please explain why are You not including this cards in the deck:




Mass Removal:

Spot Removal:

And this combos:

Mycosynth Lattice + VandalblastDarksteel Forge + Mycosynth Lattice + Nevinyrral's DiskMetalworker + Staff of Domination + 3 artifacts in hand: Infinite mana, life, creature tap/untaps and draw your deck.

Thank You for help!

Magister Sphinx blinking this would suck for your opponents

Sphinx Summoner blink makes it work several times

Eldrazi Displacer one of Breya's infinite combo pieces.

Phyrexian Metamorph can blink him to copy any ETB critter effect you want

Mana rocks that yield multiple mana like Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus and Basalt Monolith make for good blink targets.

Myr Battlesphere self explanatory

I will think of more.

There's some other tutors to consider as well. Let's consider all your current tutors:

Other tutor cards available on the cheap aka ~$10 or less:

The only ones that are worth running above IMO is Long-Term Plans and Enlightened Tutor. As far as your choices are concerned, Insidious Dreams is nice but if it's countered then you just discarded your hand for nothing. Demonic Collusion is also nice but expensive CMC wise. However, both ID and DC helps to fill up our GY. Long-Term Plans could sub in for one of those two possibly. Enlightened Tutor if you can manage to squeeze it in (or sub it for Diabolic Intent to free up ~$6; ET was recently reprinted but it's also more restrictive). Your call lol.

I'll to get back to you on if that's enough tutors when I'm not at work but I don't see why it wouldn't be after listing all of yours out :)

Solid replacement. I already had the canonist, so I've recently taken Memnarch out for Sphinx Summoner Getting a flier is neat but tutoring any artifact is just value.

Etherium-Horn Sorcerer and Enigma Sphinx are two other cards I'm contemplating, as I've noticed my average CMC is around 4, so I can definitely make use of the cascade triggers.

Many changes were made today with the biggest one being adding Arcum Dagsson. He gives me another repeatable tutor which this deck really needs to find and put into play artifact combo pieces he's excellent with Breya and Thopters.

I also added Pili-Pala because he combos with Grand Architect to make infinite mana of any combinations of colors. Fortuitous Find added as a nice 2 for 1 to be able to get back from the graveyard a nonartifact creature such as Eldrazi Displacer, Arcum Dagsson, Grand Architect and Goblin Welder, etc. as well as any artifact.

Fact or Fiction replaces Lim-Dul's Vault. It's just a much better card.

Several cards have been under preforming and as a result have been cut Sphinx Summoner, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Dimir Signet, Wastes, Foundry of the Consuls, Mulldrifter.

Summoner, Pia and Kiran, and Signet were cut to make room as well as cost for Dagsson. Pia and Kiran just don't do enough to warrant using a card which I want to play early. Too many times I've found Pia and Kiran stuck in my hand because lack of double red or not wanting to play it instead just playing Breya.

Foundry of the Consuls was cut and replaced with Ash Barrens I like the ability to search for early turn mana fixing. to make two Thopters with Consuls is very underwhelming. Another possible land to use in place of Consuls is Buried Ruin.

Todays changes added $2 to the price of this deck keeping it still under my $110 max price point.

Uhh okay looking at the deck, I am confused.
(confused about what?)
What is the theme of this deck. Is it voltron using Akiri Superpowers, or is it artifact recursion madness Silas Renn. Something to keep in mind is that the playstyles of each partner are different, even though they are somewhat linked via artifact synnergy.

A synergy to note about these two as partners is the use of artifacts that can be sacrificed without much loss (and maybe/hopefully a benefit as well) AND that have abilities when they enter the battlefield. Ichor Wellspring is the main example of this, where it serves four purposes in one card: pumping Akiri, Recursion Target for Silas Renn, An ETB/LTB effect, and sacrifice target (ex: for Goblin Welder).

With this in mind, consider cutting the following cards: Unwinding Clock, Buried Alive, Rite of Replication, Gold Myr, Iron Myr, Dualcaster Mage, and Hangarback Walker. These do close to nothing for the overall general theme of this deck.

Cards for replacement: Ichor Wellspring, Sanctum Gargoyle, Mycosynth Wellspring, Arcbound Ravager, Myr Battlesphere, Sphinx Summoner, and Clone Shell.

You have some of these cards already in your deck--obviously good--there just needs to be some more "pop" from them. Just remember that these two paired cards is difficult due to 1 being blisterkreig, the other being grindy. Good luck.
