Huge fan of Akiri/Bruse+Silas, Silas recuring artifacts every turn is really sweet, use doublestrike enablers or extra combat enablers to do some sweet things.

You often end up trying to loop artifacts for Time Sieve or Mindslaver loops to attempt infinite turns. Pretty cool. You can also use cards like Nihil Spellbomb , Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Executioner's Capsule , Aether Spellbomb , etc.

Etherium Sculptor and Ichor Wellspring seem good here. I would say Second Sunrise but it's banned. Maybe Open the Vaults ? In standard Time Sieve combo was called turbo fog so I would look into that kind of stuff as well as some can-trip arts like Chromatic Star / Chromatic Sphere , and maybe Mind Stone

This deck functions a lot like KCI. It uses Urza, Lord High Artificer to make a ton of mana off various artifacts, and then use that mana to make infinite combos.

Currently I have 2 infinite combos:

First one is: Urza, Lord High Artificer + Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek

First, have Thopter Foundry sac any other artifact to make a thopter token. Meek triggers, equipping itself to the token from the grave. Then tap the Meek for mana, and use that mana to sac the Meek to make another Thopter token. Repeat for infinite tokens.

Second infnite combo is: Sai, Master Thopterist + Time Sieve + Scrap Trawler]] + Myr Retriever + Sword of the Meek This combo allows you to get infinite extra turns, though you can only do this with 5 or more mana.

First, cast Myr Retriever, and Scrap Trawler, getting Sword of the Meek for the thopter coming out from Sai. Then, use Time Sieve already on the field to sac all the artifacts except itself. Scrap Trawler trigger on itself and Retriever. Grab back Myr Retriever, and any other 1 or 0 drop artifact. Then with Myr Retriever, grab Scrap trawler. Rinse and repeat for infinite turns.


Very consistent turn 5 kill.

Absurd draw power.

Resistant to artifact hate. (Stony Silence doesn't stop the drawing, or the mana. So if they drop Silence, I can just dig for my out)


Slow start

Weak against aggro

Susceptible to monster removal

Hey ho, if you agree and are still going, I'll add some more :

Freed from the Real + Bloom Tender for infinite mana

Isochron Scepter + Sundial of the Infinite + Final Fortune for infinite turns

Time Sieve + Thopter Assembly for infinite turns

Turntimber Ranger + Arcane Adaptation for infinite p/t and infinite tokens wolves (and ally)

Myr Retriever + Myr Retriever + Krark-Clan Ironworks for infinite ETB and ETG

Intruder Alarm + Presence of Gond + any creature for infinite token.

I might come back later if this list is still expanding. Feel free to reach me for any question or explanation if needed.

Replaced Time Sieve with Leonin Abunas likely there is a better addition, it's just one of the the first cards that came to mind.

I would replace Time Sieve since it’s really a win more card. You’re usually already winning by the time you get to activating it, so I would replace it with something that helps protect the combo.

Thanks for the suggestions TheSlowestBro

I'll for sure be adding those capsules as I've had a mischievous Muldrotha deck in my meta. Time Sieve and Anointed Procession is a little out of my price range for now (I live in AUS) but are wanted includes.

I've been looking for swaps for Spell Swindle and Karn's Temporal Sundering as I also like counter magic, However I've mainly been on the lookout for budget tutors like Diabolic Tutor .

Plus if you caught this deck the other week, you'd see I had Smothering Tithe but traded it away for Blast Zone amongst other things.

I have a Breya deck that also runs Salvaging Station , some cards I've included that work really well with it are Nihil Spellbomb , Dispeller's Capsule and Executioner's Capsule .

Examples of other cards I would consider are Spine of Ish Sah , Sun Titan , and Anointed Procession . More specifically since you are running Thopter Assembly you might want to include Time Sieve as a dirty but effective combo. Also Revel in Riches has an interesting synergy with Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer , and that would also justify running Smothering Tithe (although I run it without the combo since it's just good in multi-player anyway).

My deck is quite different from yours so I'll link it in case you find some cards that might interest you: The Machine Girl.
