Sram, Senior Edificer Discussion
13 hours ago
I 2nd Sram, Senior Edificer he can be pretty strong on budget... & if you upgrade him later he can hit like a ton of bricks
I 2nd Grenzo, Havoc Raiser as tons of fun & reasonable power... Also, fairly unconventional (doesn't have to be played with the gobs though... I just include tons of double-striking & unblockable effects)
Another budget commander is Karlov of the Ghost Council I've seen him do some cool stuff

I may have a few suggestions for you. Some budget Commanders that perform well while even on a budget are Commanders like Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Yisan, the Wanderer Bard. The main win con with the first two is to combo out with something like Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion. And Yisan just does sillyness. Cheat stuff out and profit. My personal take on a budget deck that is different from what you have mentioned above is Voltron. I am quite the fan of Voltron and it can be powerful while being on a budget. 21 Commander damage is quite feasible and most people don't encounter it a lot, at least that's how its been in my experience. My two commanders of choice right now are Sram, Senior Edificer and Sigarda, Host of Herons. The former is more Artifact based whilst the latter is more Enchantment based. I only have a decklist for Sram right now but I can get a Sidgarda one together fairly easily if that peeks your interest. Also a note, I know the deck list says 160 over all but when I went to checkout on TCG the deck was only 130.
Here's the list: Budget Voltron EDH

The deck could benefit from adding equipment and auras in order to turn the strategy into Voltron, as that is quite viable as well. However, I already have a deck that's equipment based ( Aurelia, the Warleader ) so I opted to run Oketra as a Token deck instead, relying more on a large mass of creatures buffed by multiple anthem effects. Thalia, Heretic Cathar is always a great creature to add to the deck, I may test it out and see how much it helps when it comes up. One of this deck's main problems is card draw so an equipment based strategy with Sram, Senior Edificer and Puresteel Paladin would help to resolve that issue. The deck plays pretty consistently due to the fact that it almost always has creatures on board, and with Oketra being indestructible it can make it really hard for her to ever be removed. As long as you manage to have one or two of your anthem effects stick, casting a boardwipe then casting a spell that generates tokens will establish a board presence that's strong enough to win, especially if Oketra is already on the board.

Stonecloaker - Never been too sure if I really want this card. It always feels like something I'd end up cutting if another Equipment support creature gets printed.
Scroll Rack - I took it out for Smuggler's Copter back in February. I seldom had both it and Land Tax out at once, never wanted to burn tutors to assemble them, and didn't really use Rack by itself that much. I'm a lot happier with Looter Scooter. It triggers Sram, Senior Edificer, it loots, can take chunks out of Planeswalkers, and also pairs well with an active Land Tax.
I'm fully aware of the issues Sword of Light and Shadow causes, but I bite the bullet and deal with it. Sword's protection from both creature removal colours and creature recursion is too invaluable to drop.
This deck has an ever noticeable artifact hate issue, and it's been causing many problems.
Actively avoiding heavier artifact removal so that I don't destroy my own board has been a detriment. It has allowed my opponents to get away with the game with utility artifacts and extensive artifact-based ramp. Cataclysmic Gearhulk was the first attempt at adding more artifact removal, as it at least spares by best Equipment. I also added Forsake the Worldly to patch up remaining gaps in my removal suite. While these additions are fantastic, it's still not enough. I'm planning on dropping All Is Dust for Hour of Revelation to add another hard artifact sweeper.

It's a little of both. Using Equipment and Auras with enough support cards for both of them dilutes overall synergy. I originally built the deck for Equipment exclusively to keep the synergy as strong as possible, but I've started to slip in worthwhile utility Auras when Sram, Senior Edificer became the Commander.
Eternal Dragon is a great utility card:
- It can provide a land drop.
- It can tutor for Mistveil Plains.
- It provides a cheap shuffle effect to refresh the top of my library for Sensei's Divining Top.
- Its base 5/5 flying frame is perfect for Equipment if I need to use a back-up attacker.
- It's self-recurring, allowing the aforementioned abilities to be repeatable. It's not very mana efficient at it, but the option's there.
Eight-and-a-Half-Tails remains in the 99 due to a lack of reliable ways to prevent targeted removal.
Leonin Abunas is the gold standard... and every other option falls short, mainly due to all of them using shroud. Armory Automaton is especially affected by my Equipment having shroud, being completely dead. Future support cards could also involve targeting my own Equipment.
Until something better comes along, 8.5 is here to stay.

gavin.will That makes sense, but what would you like me to add?
ManSauce I don't really like Ornithopter due to the fact that it gives me 12 zero drops, and it doesn't have synergy with Sram, Senior Edificer. I could add one over the Baral's Expertise if it is really that necessary.
Hope I can get your guys' feedback on the strength of Ornithopter!

Ok the only drop deck that I could see possible is Sram, Senior Edificer because he can replenish you hand making all the aura equipment and vehicles a cantrip, but please prove me wrong and build me a drop deck that would be more competitive than this guy

Thanks for the suggestion Winterblast to add cards such as Mogg Maniac as they would add a great reason for opponents to not attack into the band. The reason I picked Sram, Senior Edificer is for the amount of card draw he can produce. Very few other commanders draw as much as him in this style of deck. I would much rather put in Stuffy Doll before switching over to a Boros style of play, mainly due to my limited knowledge on all red cards. While this deck has a hard time winning outright, it does a great job of coming in second without using the normal collection of group hug tactics.
