Thornbite Staff is another way to get multiple triggers out of Gisa.

Ghoulcaller Gisa and Thornbite Staff can generate you as many tokens as you want once you get it going.

Feyamius on Ertai, the Controlly

I'm building an Ertai deck as well that follows these considerations:

  • I want to counter stuff, and I want to counter it with Ertai

  • If Ertai can't counter stuff, that's probably because I've got nothing to sacrifice. I still want to counter, but I need sac fodder, too. That's why I run otherwise quite bad spells like Geist Snatch and Summoner's Bane. Or, if I don't have a counter spell at hand, I can cast a carddraw spell in response and let Talrand, Sky Summoner, Docent of Perfection  Flip or Metallurgic Summonings do the rest.

  • It's better to never stumble in this kind of situation, so when Ertai counters stuff, I want a new thing on the board immediately to sac it next time. It's like Lullmage Mentor was made for that job in this deck.

  • Another reason I couldn't counter stuff with Ertai may be because he's tapped. I don't want that. He shouldn't be tapped. So I run Deceiver Exarch, Pestermite, and Village Bell-Ringer that I can flash in to untap Ertai - and to serve as sac fooder for his counter ability. How convenient!

  • Again, it's better to never get in this situation. So I gave him a nice little wand: Thornbite Staff. Whenever we sac a creature to counter something, Ertain untaps again immediately. When Lullmage Mentor is on the field, we have a nice little engine here. The Mentor works quite good with Intruder Alarm instead of the Staff, too.

  • Intruder Alarm works equally well with our emergency counterspells. If Ertai is tapped and therefor can't counter stuff, we counter with e.g. Summoner's Bane, get a dude, this entering the battlefield triggers the Alarm and untaps Ertai.

  • Friendly reminder: I want to counter stuff. I don't want to destroy or exile stuff. That's not my thing with this deck. So even if I missed countering something I don't like, I return it to hand, so I can counter it later. Capsize is your best friend in this deck, even if it is a bit boring. Just as Cyclonic Rift. I still have to find something cool and synergistic here.

Have you considered Thornbite Staff? Haha it turns goblin welder into an infinite cycle engine with any artifact creatures in play and yard. Infinite etb's are real strong.

I've been messing around with different setups with cards I already own and I put Terrain Generator and Walking Atlas in and they both work as well as can be expected in the stead of fetches. I took out Thornbite Staff from mine because it wasn't doing much for me. I really like Storm Cauldron especially with Crucible of Worlds if only I had the crucible lol. I switched out Curse of Opulence and Commune with Lava with Krenko's Command and Dragon Fodder for some more tokens just because it's closer to my play style. I also switched in Ruby Medallion and Caged Sun for two mountain. I'm just messing with different combinations right now but they seem to be working well for me so far.
