The Antiquities War

Enchantment — Saga

(As this Saga enters and after your draw step, add a lore counter. Sacrifice after III.)

, — Look at the top five cards of your library. You may reveal an artifact card from among them and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

— Artifacts you control become artifact creatures with base power and toughness 5/5 until end of turn.

Hey, nice budget deck, less than $100, well done.

Budget upgrades ($2 or less each, most are less than $1) to consider:

Can add all these cards for about $20. I offer more help if you would like.

Good luck with your deck.

HI i made a pretty unique brew for you here. Its not playtested heavily nor full proof but kaybe you can work on it and make it awesome. Just an idea to have fun with.

The deck consists of 3 plans.

Plan A. Gather infinite mana through 2 Myr Galvanizer s and either 2 random mana myr or 1 Palladium Myr . Then win through Blue Sun's Zenith decking out the opponent completely.

This is made easier and consistent by being able to fetch Blue Sun's Zenith through Muddle the Mixture . Any missing myr is also extremely tutorable through Kuldotha Forgemaster , Tezzeret the Seeker and Whir of Invention .

Plan B Artifact beatdown. The Antiquities War and Tezzeret the Seeker 's ultimate turn artifacts into 5/5 beaters for a quick win.

Plan C Myr Superion . Tuis may seem underwhelming but this guy beats out most big guys in the modern meta. Its bigger than Hollow One , kills Gurmag Angler and most of the time can go head to head with Tarmogoyf . This guy is not joke. check it out and work on it a little. Goodluck!

Affinity has somewhat fallen iut of flavour coz most pilots are bired of having ran it for so many years. Hardened Scales affinity has taken its place in the meta. That being said affinity isnt a bad deck at all, and still performs well. If yoy go to top 8 lists they tend to run either of these 3 as the newest additions.

Experimental Frenzy . 2-3 of and plays a ser of Galvanic Blast and a low land count. This is my preferred version.

The Antiquities War : usually with Thoughtcast to find specific artifact cards and a big swingy 3rd saga.

The last one is baby karn (which i mispell and cant tag) but its some grindier variant of affinity.

Lastly another change as mentioned above, Spire of Industry is the rainbow land of choice nowadays. Enjoy!!

Have you considered running more artifacts, Sai, Master Thopterist and The Antiquities War ?

Alternatively, you could splash black and run Phylactery Lich in tandem with Treasure Map  Flip. That would also give you some extra removal!

Also- 23 lands should be plenty! I know that you have some bigger spells but your deck looks like it's mid-range/control enough to get anything you need plus you have the map for some filter.

Lastly- I'd run one Oath of Teferi or add an extra Karn, Scion of Urza and 1-2 Teferi, Hero of Dominaria . In a deck like yours, the Oath is a win-more card meaning that when you get it, if you have the Planeswalkers down to make use of it, you're likely already going to win. As such, it's a neat one-of. But get above 8 planeswalkers, and 2 is a little more justified! But that's just my opinion!

Neat deck! It's somewhat similar to mine though I never thought of using Divine Visitation which I'll now be looking into :)

Definitely! Glad I can help :)

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas I'm sure will generate a lot of hate haha... But if he stays out, he can Anticipate for 5 cards every turn, turn your Thopters or Silas Renn, Seeker Adept into permanent 5/5s (and if you have an Inkmoth Nexus ...), and close out the game with his -4. But if you think he'll be too much of a power shifter, The Antiquities War fills almost the same shoes while being a less obvious threat.
