Sword of the Meek Discussion
2 weeks ago
There are a few reliable wincons I can think of for an artifact-theme deck:
- Sword of the Meek, Thopter Foundry, and Disciple of the Vault combo (You're already running the Ironworks). It's efficient, but gets old quickly for the people you're playing against.
- I'd also think about Hellkite Tyrant as another wincon. Especially since you play Mycosynth Lattice.
- Speaking of the Lattice, Karn, Silver Golem combos really well with it. I know it's not a wincon, it is a great way to blow up your opponents' lands. March of the Machines can also get the job done, but it hits everyone all at once.
Good luck with the edits!

No problem. I would love to mention your deck as a more budget variation.
There are more for you to discover =)

If you can find a copy, Sword of the Meek is an excellent addition. Combo potential with Thopter Foundry, and all around value as something to sacrifice and recur.

Iona, Shield of Emeria is the creature you were thinking of. Worldspine Wurm is another fatty that Polymorph typically uses alongside Emrakul. Usually, Polymorph decks have at least 2-4 targets, so adding a few to your deck couldn't hurt (there is always a chance you may draw Emrakul rendering your gameplan useless).
Proteus Staff is another Polymorph-esque card that could help you more consistently combo off turn 4 (playing this turn 3 allows for a protected turn 4 combo if you have a 1-mana counterspell in hand, which I recommend you play a few of, such as Swan Song or Dispel. I also believe you should switch out Elspeth, Sun's Champion for Elspeth, Knight-Errant as she provides a far quicker way to produce tokens than her counterpart. Modern is far too fast for you to play big Elspeth as your free token generator.
The one problem I have with your list is the lack of token generators in the mainboard. Your only way to combo off currently involves you acquiring Sword of the Meek, Thopter Foundry, and Polymorph, all while not drawing Emrakul. You would fare much better if you included some of your sideboard in the deck, for example, Timely Reinforcements, as this is a fantastic way to setup and survive the turn before a Polymorph. Some of your control cards can be cut to include these token generators. Lingering Souls is also a pretty standard card to include if your manabase can make room for it, as it provides two chances to keep tokens on the field. Expanding you manabase to black with some fetchlands would also allow you to play some hand disruption in the form of Thoughtseize of Inquisition of Kozilek, and even efficient removal in Fatal Push; this preemptively protects your combo before you go off by discarding your opponents counterspells.
I really enjoy the addition of the Sword + Thopter combo, in the deck, it gives the deck a nice way out against fair decks that are beating you down. Good luck making the deck more competitive, hope I could help you :)

Thopter Sword is notorious in Modern, but I get the feeling that not as many people know how deadly it can be in Commander as should be the case, because of its synergy with other cards.
Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek and Ashnod's Altar or Krark-Clan Ironworks is the most obvious example. Infinite life and mana is nothing to scoff at, especially when you can then use that mana to gain infinite life, again, and produce infinite 1/1 flyers with which you can swarm the table into submission.
Swap out Sieve for Altar or Ironworks and you have infinite tokens with Battlesphere and Mantle.
Altar + Mantle + any creature that produces at least two tokens on entry will yield infinite tokens, as well.
Ironworks/Altar + Mantle + Wurmcoil Engine +2 mana yields infinite 3/3 beaters.
There are ridiculous numbers of infinite combos and other deadly synergies out there. Those are just my favorite ones. =3
