Transmute Artifact


Sacrifice an artifact. If you do, search your library for an artifact card. If that card's converted mana cost is less than or equal to the sacrificed artifact's converted mana cost, put it onto the battlefield. If it's greater, you may pay , where X is the difference. If you do, put it onto the battlefield. If you don't, put it into its owner's graveyard. Then shuffle your library.

Vectrix on [Obey] - Competitive Control

Hello deadmanwaltzing,

I do not have Time Spiral & Timetwister & Transmute Artifact . Should i remove Personal Tutor since it's only interest is in this configuration to seek for Creature removal or other tutor ?

Thanks you for your list and your help !

For Lantern Control Circu, you would need tutors to grab your Lantern. Not to mention you are a bit light on the control aspect of it as well. I would consider adding in these cards to step up the game plan:

Alternative wincon can also involve adding in more mana rocks to go Isochron Scepter / Dramatic Reversal for Circu exile win. If you have the budget as well I would recommend grabbing Field of Dreams and Transmute Artifact as well.

I would say the only piece of advice I can give you without thinking way too hard is that I have always preferred Transmute Artifact as an artifact tutor and that if you don't wanna think too hard about what to cut I'd use it before Fabricate.

Daedalus19876 Thanks to your recommendations above, a copy of Transmute Artifact will be joining my arsenal of tutors soon! Looking forward to it.

Daedalus19876 Thanks for your suggestions.

Command Beacon is certainly useful in most EDH decks, I just don't have sufficient copies to go around.

I recall Transmute Artifact cost more than $120 (I assume we're talking about USD here). Do share the website where you saw it going for $120, please.

And yup, your Locust God deck is awesome. Can tell you spent considerable effort refining it, like what I'm doing to this deck now. Keep up the good work!

Command Beacon seems like a must here, for a deck that relies on its commander!

I know you have Transmute Artifact marked as "too expensive", but you can pick one up for $120 or so online, so it's less expensive than a lot of other cards here, and it's strictly better than Reshape . I put it in my The Locust God list, and it immediately kicked the deck up a turn faster - can't recommend it highly enough.

Have you considered Spellseeker ? Can grab Reshape , Cyclonic Rift , Mystical Tutor , etc.

EDIT: Just realized that Spellseeker messes with Proteus Staff combo - ignore me XD

I also made a Petitioners deck but, took a more combo heavy approach with Arcum Dagsson as the commander.

One of the big advantages of playing white is the inclusion of Rest in Peace . This is a great way to get around the Eldrazi Problem. Other benefits to white is Faith's Reward type of effects that allow you to recover from a board wipe.

Also, with out a consistent tutor like Arcum in the command zone, you need to max out on artifact tutors. Reshape and Transmute Artifact both help with that. Merchant Scroll can also help you find the instants you need. Since you are playing blue I have to mention the best card in EDH Cyclonic Rift as an auto include.

For Rocks, I would max out the ones you are allowed to play 2 CMC or less. Chrome Mox , Mana Crypt , Mox Diamond , and all of the 2 CMC ones.

Heya DrkNinja!

Pretty sweet build ya got so far, I would consider adding in more ways to find your Paradox Engine or Aetherflux. So cards like Reshape or Transmute Artifact are a real boon.

In addition, the free cast counterspells are a must when your going into cEDH formats like Force of Will and Mindbreak Trap . Other ones to consider using as well are Mental Misstep , Swan Song and Flusterstorm as they are definitely great protection as well.

For more artifact synergy the broken fast rocks are an obvious auto include that is needed as well as some enablers as well. Some enablers that can be considered are cards like Memory Jar , Chain of Vapor , Staff of Domination , Isochron Scepter , Dramatic Reversal , and Rings of Brighthearth .

For another outlet you can also use Words of Wind .

Sorry if the response seems iffy I haven't slept in about 47 or so hours xD
