Time Sieve Discussion

S1ydevi1 on Silas and Ravos Artifact Emporium

2 days ago

Managed to survive a Craterhoof Behemoth swing that took out the other 2 opponents by using Kuldotha Forgemaster to sacrifice Skullclamp, Nihil Spellbomb and Spine of Ish Sah and go get Time Sieve. I had Shimmer Myr out, so I could Spine one of the 16/16 tramplers and block enough of the rest to put me at 6. I was left with Ravos in play, which allowed me to return Myr Battlesphere to my hand, which resulted in infinite turns with the Sieve.

Needless to say, the artifact emporium was on full display.

I would put in Tamiyo's Journal and Ongoing Investigation and call it a day with the clues.

If you want artifact tokens of a single type to work with, thopters would be the tried and true. Thopter Assembly on its own goes inf with Time Sieve.

If you just want artifact tokens and don't care what, Curse of Opulence, Brass's Bounty, Revel in Riches, Storm the Vault, Mechanized Production, Thopter Spy Network will all net you quite a few things to work with.

HorriblyCrass on Clue energy five color

Making an EDH with Ramos, Dragon Engine that works pretty effectively with energy, I'm thinking about deconstructing my clue deck to add clues to it. Deck works by just having good clue synergy basically, giraphur aether grid and such, Door to Nothingness for the luls with Ramos' ability and a Tezzeret (doesn't matter which) and I'm just curious to see what others would put in a deck like this to make it work effectively. Biggest hurdle is adding in Time Sieve as it's a key card to my plan being able to take infinite turns if I can make enough clues per turn, and Mechanized Production as a good win-con in that event. What are your guy's thoughts?

When you play a Sharuum deck, your goal is to break the game as quickly as possible, because that's what everyone EXPECTS to happen. She's one of THE top-tier commanders for a VERY good reason. If you're going to play with the Thopter Foundry and the Sword of the Meek, you NEED the Time Sieve. Infinite turns is ALWAYS a game-breaker! Each piece of the combo is THREE MANA OR LESS. You can't get much better than that!

Here, search for artifacts on the MTG Card Gatherer. I PROMISE you will like some of the things that you find. You might have to sort the results by community rating or another sort option to find some of them, but it will TOTALLY be worth your time. :)

So I also love the Thopter/Sword combo, and one of my first decks used it. Generally it works well in a control shell, and that is what I would recommend for you. I would take out the Hidden Stockpiles and Ornithopters and replace them with more control spells, such as Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Fatal Push, maybe one Supreme Verdict. Counterspells are good as well, such as Cryptic Command (which is fine in this deck since you are already going for three blue for Whir of Invention). I often find the Time Sieves to be "win more" cards, as you usually have the game locked down by that time. However, they are still good and useful if you are up against something like Storm (in which case, you probably need something like Flusterstorm in the sideboard).

Randaka on Sydri Lantern Control

I was thinking of adding that just for the artwork. Lol don't really know what to cut for it though. Maybe a land. Time Sieve usually feels dead. Thoughts

If you are going thopters to go infinite with Time Sieve then you definitely want to pick up a copy of Anointed Procession to double your token production. Padeem, Consul of Innovation would be a good way to protect your artifacts and can give you extra card draw. Metalwork Colossus is an artifact fatty you can throw in and practically cast for free due to the sheer number of non-creature artifacts you are running.
