Trash for Treasure Discussion

All good suggestions. Blade of Selves + Reaper King in a four player game gives you 3 Reaper king tokens, which each see each other enter, giving you 9 vindicates (three from the original king, two for each token). The same general idea works for Helm of the Host , except the tokens stick around.

Trash for Treasure out for Goblin Welder and Cloudshift out for Vedalken Archmage sound good for a starting place.

Budget isn't the biggest problem, while I'm not looking to drop a lot of money on any single card, I have a huge collection that includes many old cards.

I think you could cut Cloudshift for Vedalken Archmage . If you're looking for budget options, I like cards like Greed , Book of Rass would work well being a 5-color deck, Kumena's Awakening is worth a shot, Guardian Project , Beast Whisperer as just a few. I like to run about 10 card draw spells in my decks. If you have Rhystic Study , throw it in. I would probably cut some of your copying effects to add some card draw. I don't know how important cards like Blade of Selves and Helm of the Host are to your strategy, though.

A thought I had too was to replace Trash for Treasure with something more repeatable, like Goblin Welder .

This deck is amazing! I've been having a blast flipping coins and ruining days with my friends in multiplayer EDH.

Some alteration questions for you: Would artifact recovery like Goblin Welder or Trash for Treasure fit somewhere in here? The deck is really good at protecting Krark's Thumb, but sometimes things get through.

Would any of the treasure generating counter spells ( Depths of Desire , Hornswoggle , Spell Swindle ) work to get artifacts/mana ramp quicker or are they too expensive to cast?

What cards would you sub for things?

Thanks again for this amazing deck! It's a blast to play

I think these decks could put Goblin Engineer to good use. It pairs well with SFM, anyway. Also, Trash for Treasure isn't five bucks anymore.

Hey there! I've also begun working on my own Daretti Oathbreaker list with Trash for Treasure as the signature spell, but I'm focusing more on cheating Stax artifacts like God-Pharaoh's Statue and Trinisphere into play.

I think Jhoira's Familiar should be included, wouldn't you say? Not only does it reduce the cost of every artifact in the deck, but it also makes Daretti easier to cast too! Mind Stone , Fire Diamond , and Ruby Medallion are cheap ramp options that can also be traded for something more powerful down the line.

What do you think? I'm new to Oathbreaker, so I could be approaching this from too Commander a mindset.

Trash for Treasure to get back Helm, Chalice of the Void as an additional counterspell measure?

Sphinx of the Steel Wind cant be targeted by any of your red "target artifact" spells/abilities like Trash for Treasure or Daretti, Scrap Savant but would still work with Sharuum the Hegemon and Refurbish so its not a complete waste but its a questionable fit because of that.

I haven't had many problems getting Trash for Treasure off, between Pentad Prism , Ornithopter , Darksteel Citadel in a pinch, and enough draw.

Insolent Neonate looks very good, and I'll give it a shot. My one concern is that it's not repeatable, but that might be less of an issue than I think.

Thanks for the response!
