Thanks man! I definitely get your points, in fact I think my list is too low on the counter magic. I definitely think I should add in at least Dovin's Veto , maybe also Stoic Rebuttal and Countersquall like you have. Also Despark is a smart inclusion as well. The eternal problem is what to cut heh.

The Mirrodin Besieged card is pretty cool, but it might be too slow. On that note I noticed you are running Efficient Construction , I think cards that flicker offer more versatility but also fill a similar role producing tokens, thats why I would run Conjurer's Closet over it for instance. So my eyes are more on Soulherder to be honest since it also curves super nice into Breya, oh and also Etchings of the Chosen might be kinda cool as a thopter anthem that also protects her.

SideBae Thanks again for the very detailed and interesting answer! My playgroup (luckily) doesn't use any blood moon-type effects to hamper lands and given the large amount of great artefacts in our format, my lands are never targeted by single-target artifact removal. They are really vulnerable to mass artifact destruction (i.e. Vandalblast ) though, and the one time I wasn't able to counter a Merciless Eviction I flat out lost the game (although I think I would have lost it anyways with my whole board in exile).

The main reason I have those artifact lands in the deck is ramp with Tezzeret the Seeker and mana fixing with Trinket Mage . They also really help to activate artifact-count triggers (e.g. Stoic Rebuttal , Thopter Spy Network , Dispatch , etc.) in the early game and they are exceptionally useful with Glimmervoid and Spire of Industry . I've also sometimes used them to mitigate the cost of Master Transmuter ability and being able to ramp with Mirrorworks can sometime be useful. They can also be discarded to Daretti, Scrap Savant and be later brought back through any of the artifact recursion engines.

I haven't played the deck enough though, so I will definitely pay attention to those artifact lands' performance in the next games and if they don't work I'll get rid of them.

What do you think about Combustible Gearhulk ? I still haven't had the chance to draw and play it and I'm wondering if there are better repeatable card-draw alternatives that come with upsides (i.e. being a big 6/6 first striker in this case).

Thanks again :)

Continuing my advice...

Good budget cards ($3 or less each) with artifact strategies to consider adding:

Commander staples:

Can add all these cards for about $20. Can add all cards suggested in both comments for about $45.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Cataclysmic Gearhulk
  • Fumigate
  • Glassdust Hulk
  • Tezzeret's Betrayal
  • Salvaging Station
  • Treasury Thrull
  • Tezzeret, Master of Metal
  • Spinal Embrace
  • Soulscour
  • Pentavus
  • Enigma Sphinx
  • Obelisk of Esper
  • Seer's Lantern
  • Star Compass
  • Arsenal Thresher
  • Jhoira's Familiar
  • Synod Centurion
  • Tower Gargoyle
  • Death Grasp

The majority of these suggested cuts are five/six/seven drops. Cutting these can reduce the avg. CMC or your deck a lot resulting in smoother game play. If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

First of all +1, Love the Deck!

Second you can bracket cards, decks, or profiles to link them or draw attention to them. It gives them the blue sheen you see in so many other descriptions or comments. You place 2 brackets(the key just right of the P key) the card name or deck name or profile and then 2 reverse brackets(1 more key over). You use spaces if there are spaces in the card or deck name, but NO spaces in between the brackets and the information you are bracketing.

Example: Collected Company (Card), Thalia's Horde of Humans(Deck), Catpocolypse(Profile)

Hopefully this helps, but because of tappedout rules concerning brackets, it is a little hard to explain.

Give me a shout if it doesn't work and I'll see if I can help

With that out of the way(hopefully) lets get down to the deck. I'd suggest Tempered Steel as its basically 2 lords in 1 and it is harder to remove for boot.

I'm on the fence about Myr Superion . It is a powerful card for a lower mana cost, but I'm worried about how often you can get it out onto the field. It could end up just being dead weight in your hand because you don't have 2 mana dorks on the board. It just kinda of risky.

If Steel Overseer is a card that your deck revolves around, you could consider Hardened Scales . Personally, I don't think it will work that well because you only have 1 card that distributes +1/+1 counters, but maybe it will. What do I know?

Depending on how many artifacts you have out at any time, it might be worth to look at Dispatch instead of Path to Exile because then your opponent doesn't get the land. Stoic Rebuttal is the same thing. If you have enough artifacts, it is Counterspell incarnate.

Finally, you could look at Cranial Plating . Any 1 of your creatures could get big fast. Plus the only difference between Attach and Equip is that Attach is instant speed, whereas Equip is sorcery speed.
