Sydri, Galvanic Genius Discussion

So combos that are non infinite?

Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Caltrops is a fun one.

goblinguiderevealpls you could try to do all three, but fitting it all into a 100 card deck you might be tough. Depending on how hard of an artifact theme you want you might want to consider Sydri, Galvanic Genius.

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.

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.

Thopter Sword and Time Sieve gives you infinite turns with 5 mana. With 4 mana, you could swap out Thopter Sword for Myr Battlesphere and Nim Deathmantle to achieve the same effect.

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.

Even something like Disciple of the Vault or Marionette Master can be deadly with Thopter Sword.

Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Aetherflux Reservoir + WUB mana murders everything to death until it dies...

There are ridiculous numbers of infinite combos and other deadly synergies out there. Those are just my favorite ones. =3

Hi Jammies,

Pretty decent list you fabricated so far. I would consider these options for your deck as well:

An upvote on my deck, which you can find here, is always appreciated!

Good luck!

Reverie42, thank you for the comment and suggestions! I actually had Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient in the decklist until recently, but I found that most of the time I didn't even think about him or would get depressed when I'd draw him. He is likely better suited as a commander, I agree, but I really prefer the flexibility Daretti, Scrap Savant provides. Plus, like you said, his ultimate is badass. I have way too much fun playing with him as my commander to even consider a different card. If I did choose to mix things up at some point, though, I'd actually probably take my artifacts and change colors to a Sydri, Galvanic Genius deck, but Daretti still has my heart these days.

Thanks for the props on Colossus! I actually think he's a pretty cool dude. I threw him in after buying him for my Animar, Soul of Elements deck I used to have, and he has stuck in Daretti ever since then. As for Feldon of the Third Path, you might be surprised to hear I didn't think much of him when I played him either. I think I replaced him with Scarecrone, and while I'm not exactly in love with that card, I still think I like it more. Heart of Kiran's inclusion in the current list is the product of procuring one and wanting to try it out. It's okay, but I'm planning to replace it in the next wave of revisions.

Kurkesh and Feldon also go against my current plan to include as few non-artifact creatures as humanly possible in this deck, unless I deem them absolutely necessary. That way I can maximize the artifact shenanigans.

I am currently building Oloro as well. I like the idea with Aetherflux Reservoir. I am going more artifact based with my build though. I want to live the dream of Aetherflux Reservoir +Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Basilisk Collar.

There are some artifacts in your list I somehow missed. I guess I will need to update soon.

What about Serra Ascendant and Blood Baron of Vizkopa? Also Exquisite Blood.

Oloro Lifegain, v.1 is my current testing build.

Oh and just curious, why don't you want to run the other alternate win-con of Aetherflux Reservoir + Sydri, Galvanic Genius?
