Sydri, Galvanic Genius Discussion

Ghostshaman33 on Fun Commander to build?

3 days ago

The Gitrog Monster is pretty fun, if that’s your style.

You could always build artifacts, there’s many options for generals but my favorite is Sydri, Galvanic Genius

Sigarda, Heron's Grace is a newer build of mine and it’s pretty fun (especially at sub $100)

Anyways, hope this helped.

Hi nenya14! You could definitely replace the lands with a budget land base, and cut some of the more expensive ramp and draw spells to put in other ramp and draw. The hard part to replace would be the token doublers and the enchantment animators, but you could also try an artifact package with Mycosynth Lattice, Mirrorworks, Sculpting Steel, Phyrexian Metamorph, Prototype Portal, and Cogwork Assembler to copy enchantments after they are turned into artifacts, and March of the Machines, Titania's Song, The Antiquities War, Tezzeret the Seeker , Karn, Silver Golem, or Sydri, Galvanic Genius to turn the enchantments into creatures and attack. You could also just make creature tokens with Sigil of the Empty Throne, or win without creatures using Induced Amnesia.

With Karn + Mycosynth being the big daddy LD combo, perhaps Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Liquimetal Coating could fit the bill as well?

So, first off this isn't standard, if you remove the Seat of the Synod, Sydri, Galvanic Genius, and Hanna, Ship's Navigator it'll be modern legal. Next, you need to figure out what your deck is trying to do. Does it want to flood the board with artifacts like modern affinity decks (, do you want to outvalue your opponent with a midrange artifact deck, similar to standard UG constructs(, or do you want to just beat your opponent in the late game with a few giant artifacts like blue tron (

Next, you generally want to increase your consistency by having multiple copies of cards. The rule I use is 4: I want this card as early and often as possible 3: I want this card every game, but multiples are bad or I'm okay getting it in the mid game 2: I want this card every game, but multiples are bad and it's a card I want only in the mid-late game 1: It's a tutor target or it's acting as the 5th copy of a card I want 4 of

This is not a hard and fast rule, but it's a good place to start. After you figure out the cards you want, here's a good way to figure out how many lands you want:

Once you figure out all of those things, it'll be easier to improve your deck. If you don't know how many of a card you want, you can just put 4 of all of your best cards in the deck, and then put anything else you're thinking about in the maybeboard. Good luck

Shane.Allen I agree i could cut one of the "draw x" cards, however Illusionist's Bracers, I will argue, it's not one of the weakest cards in the deck but instead, a very powerful snake in the grass. When i cast Illusionist's Bracers, I expect the reaction you just gave. "that's a weak card, so i'll let it resolve". Not knowing that with Sydri, Galvanic Genius there are 6 targets it can equip to and generate infinite mana.

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

shyrobby13 Thanks for the upvote man! I have thought about adding red, but I really like having Sydri, Galvanic Genius as the commander. So I think I’ll keep it this color.
