This deck does not run Urza, Lord High Artificer because it does not add to the core of the deck nor does it help close any weak points in the deck. This deck can be converted to Thopter Sword Combo, but the deck styles are different as Thopter Sword is weaker to Karn, the Great Creator and where this deck is not so weak to stony effects. The deck's weakness is in the closing ability of the long games when time is a factor. Thopter Sword is Sword of the Meek and Thopter Foundry .

The Negate sideboard has been a flex spot.

Echo of Eons works well with Narset, Parter of Veils . Forces your opponent to discard their hand, then draw one while you discard your hand and draw 7. Even 1-2 copies is great due to the 3CMC flashback.

Muddle the Mixture also works really great with the Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek combo. It's a counterspell that can keep your combo pieces safe that also can search out both of your combo pieces. I'd recommend dropping 1 of each combo piece for 2 Muddle the Mixture dropping Tribute Mage for the other 2. It'll really increase how consistently you can pull out your combo. It's much better than Tribute Mage , same CMC but also can let you counterspell things, specifically things that can kill your combo.

Karn, the Great Creator could also be pretty awesome in here, as his -2 can grab both combo pieces if you put 1 of each in your side board, as well as gives you access to Ensnaring Bridge + Bottled Cloister and karn + Mycosynth Lattice .

Deck looks like a blast. Only few things I can think of are that with Storm the Vault  Flip and Chief of the Foundry , you seem to have a slight "go wide" strategy and personally, assuming you're playing 4 player commander, would emphasize that a little more. Bident of Thassa and Coastal Piracy aren't artifacts, but they do draw a lot of cards when you're swarming with thopers from Thopter Foundry and other stuff that makes small dudes. Also I would take another look at the land base. I know lands can be pretty expensive which is why I never really bash people for land bases but I would highly recommend a bit more colored tap lands considering your curve isn't exactly super low. Vesuva can enter as a copy of an artifact land you already have so that you have more than one you can use with cards like Kuldotha Forgemaster . I really like the inclusion of some fun stuff like Possibility Storm , the format needs more weird stuff going on. But yea, deck looks dope and best of luck!

Gidgetimer on Just Another Boring Paradox Engine ...

Because my commander is basically tap to Tinker ? For real though, out of 8 decks I have built exactly 1 uses Paradox Engine and it is Arcum Dagsson . It sounds like you may be looking at the archetypes that want to abuse Paradox Engine . I don't really like using EDHRec as a deck building tool, but I feel that this is the case when what is popular is what we actually want to know. Paradox Engine and Dramatic Reversal are each in 6% of decks. This means that even if they were always in different decks (spoilers, they're not) There would still be about 15 decks without either for each one with one of them. For reference the three color card Thopter Foundry is in 7% of decks.

If you are wanting to see decks without them, tell us what you like and people will be more than happy to share some of their favorite decks from around the site to cleanse your palate. Simply complaining about a card accomplishes nothing outside of baiting contrarians like myself into trying to anecdotally refute your point (as I did before deciding to drop some stats.)

Finally get this cycle into Modern. Hope we get Psychatog , Ichorid , and Circular Logic so I can go back to playing my favorite Extended deck (probably just wishful thinking on my part). At the very least, I'll be able to brew up some new kind of jank with the ol' Life from the Loam + Gifts Ungiven engine.

In other words, yes Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor....we're going to be hitting levels of jank that shouldn't be possible. Hell, I'll even put Hogaak into this jank deck and dump it into play with Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek off of Gifts Ungiven . Then we're gonna play red and white for Tectonic Reformation and Astral Drift.

The best part? We won't even use any of this to win because we'll be in 5 colors. Door to Nothingness will end the game once we hardcast it and activate it with all the mana we've been Life from the Loam ing back into our hands mwhwahwhahhahahaahahaa!!!

Carrion Feeder reprint! Might actually make Zombies a viable archetype in Modern, since that deck was missing good 1-drops. The only ones playable in Modern are basically Aether Vial , Gravecrawler , Cryptbreaker , and... Diregraf Ghoul ?
