Help Needed for making this deck Optimized. Also I could have missed some combo potential, just started Magic in 2018. Thinking about adding more Infinite Mana Combos like Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth and Staff of DominationWalking Ballista for Mana sink/additional wincon.

Things that are on my "Cut"-List

Thran Dynamo Good Manarock but, I sometimes just need colored Mana more

One with the Machine Draws 3-4 cards most of the time and fits the Artifact Theme. But there is Better draw, just mention it.

Mana Echoes it's good with all the Thopter Stuff, but often it's just Mana that "Burns" away. Again Walking Ballista is an option

Sphinx Summoner 5 mana Tutor. Meh.

Sydri, Galvanic Genius combos with Aetherflux, but otherwise not useful in my opinion.

Vampiric Tutor Straight out of Budget, using proxy at the moment

Master Transmuter cheating mana cost is big. But my curve is low. Can't get Hellkite Tyrant or any of my Planeswalkers.

Trash for Treasure Sorcery Speed. Early Trash for Treasure isn't useful most of the time.

Cards I really want to play:

Walking Ballista

Darksteel Forge Protection

Mycosynth Lattice With the lattice, mostly none of your opponents play Artifact Boardwipes anymore. But High CMC

Treasure Nabber In a format that play so many Mana rocks this dude seems great. With KCI you can still sac the rocks for more mana

Memnarch Mana sink/combo with Pili-Pala combo to get Everything. High CMC

Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer Save half of your artifacts on a Destroy Boardwipe. Save important Artifacts for sacing Thopters

Storm the Vault It's land version is even banned

Semblance Anvil More reduce is good.

Mindslaver Hard to achieve but having his effect multiple times and controlling everyone is just a win.

Indomitable Archangel Protection, but high CMC

Blinkmoth Urn If you play an artifact Deck and your opponents don't it's just crazy

All in all for slower/longer games I need much more draw

Rhystic Study

Consecrated Sphinx

Notion Thief

But these aren't artifacts

Aether Spellbomb

Pyrite Spellbomb

Commander's Sphere are reusable

Thanks for the heads up hardstyleginja! Man, I really need to start reading these cards. Maybe I should replace Sphinx Summoner with Rune-Scarred Demon. That sound good?

Your Sphinx Summoner doesn't have any fetch targets. You should replace it since you don't need to build around it.

Sphinx Summoner and Transmuter are best friends. Also Darksteel Citadel.

So, I'm making a buy/trade list for an Esper Sphinx artifact deck. This list isn't including cards I already have, I'll add that as I go or as people suggest the cards I do have.

Basically, what I'm looking for is suggestions of cards to add or remove from this list.

If you use Silas Renn, Seeker Adept and Akiri, Line-Slinger as partner commanders instead of Exava, you might get a bit more synergy with your artifacts.

I know this is gonna put you into two extra colors, but, if you had blue and white in addition to your current colors you could have...

Trophy Mage, Trinket Mage Chief Engineer, Filigree Angel, Sram, Senior Edificer, Ethersworn Adjudicator, Sydri, Galvanic Genius, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Whir of Invention, Thopter Foundry, Efficient Construction, Thopter Spy Network, Sanctum Gargoyle, Sphinx Summoner, Etherium Sculptor and Salvage Scout.

4 color fixing is hard, but artifacts is probs the best archetype for mana rocks, I suppose.

Hm. Under the radar suggestions for artifact synergy...I have an Oloro, Ageless Ascetic deck that I've geared toward artifacts (no pun intended) and here's what I've learned from piloting that deck:

Recursion is easily available in Black for any artifact creatures, such as Phyrexian Reclamation, Unburial Rites, etc. Artifacts are also good at recurring themselves, like through Scrap Trawler and Myr Retriever. So I wouldn't worry too much about recursion in Esper colors. Furthermore, you've got insane tutors in your colors, from Sphinx Summoner to Thalia's Lancers to Djeru, With Eyes Open...and since you're in the best flicker colors, you can use Conjurer's Closet, Ghostly Flicker, etc to re-use those abilities and other ETB abilities like Sharuum's or Filigree Angel.

I really love playing Chief Engineer and Inspiring Statuary for hidden little mana advantages. You could also go Thopter "tribal" with Sharding Sphinx, Thopter Spy Network, Efficient Construction, etc. All of that kinda lends itself to an "artifact aristocrat" deck of sorts, but other synergies just depend on how you want to build the deck. However, if you get a list put together, I'd be glad to take a look!

My comments lean away from combo, since that's not my playstyle, but you can also build using the aforementioned infinite combos.
