Vedalken Archmage Discussion

Vedalken Archmage is really good because it draws a lot of cards in an artifact deck.

Lightning Greaves is a very good idea to protect Arcum and let him use his ability immediately. Padeem, Consul of Innovation protects other artifacts and draws cards.

I don't think Platinum Angel helps your game plan much since it is easily removed.

Metalwork Colossus should be cheap to cast for you. Scrap Trawler could be useful to bring back some of the creatures you sacrifice.

Seat of the Synod is helpful to include especially when you have Metalworker.

Another infinite combo you could include is Cogwork Assembler and Powerstone Shard, which makes infinite mana which you can then use to make infinite hasty Assemblers.

Given that aprox. one third of your deck is artifacts, you could benefit from Vedalken Archmage. No use with other historic spells and no flash with Raff, though.

I'm not saying you have to use any of these just thought I would throw them out there

Artificer's Assistant, Riddlesmith, Quicksmith Genius - can help deal with land draws

Vedalken Archmage - duplicates commander draw ability and you can cast if you don't have red

Firebrand Archer, Nettle Drone, Psychosis Crawler - win conditions

luther on Enchantress-esque cards for artifacts

1 month ago

So, I am sitting here staring at the beautiful art for Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and it hits me... an equipment "enchantress" deck for edh.

There is of course Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, as well as Puresteel Paladin, Sram, Senior Edificer and Vedalken Archmage that act as perfect "enchantresses".

Along with those there are some looting effects that could work in Riddlesmith and Jeskai Ascendancy as well.

My main questions are, are there any similar effects that I am missing, and Who should be my commander for this beast?

You've almost got it, but you need Clock of Omens, Unwinding Clock, Vedalken Orrery, Reshape, and Inventors' Fair. Storm the Vault  Flip and Vedalken Archmage wouldn't hurt either. Toss out Mox Amber for Mana Vault (Revised version is unbelievably cheap), find room for Mana Crypt (If you can trade a Kaladesh Invention for a non-Invention 'Crypt or open one in a Kaladesh or Eternal Masters pack (the 'Crypt is anywhere from $80.00-$200.00 apiece)), and pitch Staff of Domination for Staff of Nin and make room for Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient.

Of all the commander available in Dominaria, this is one of the least obvious choices to build around, but one of the most interesting!

I would suggest Whir of Invention, not only as another artifact tutor, but to boost your Surrakar Spellblade and make another target for your Mystical Tutor. You could replace Deadeye Quartermaster for it. You are running just 12 total sorceries and instants and could maybe use another 1 or 2. Perhaps Wash Out for another instant, and one that can bounce threats while leaving your commander on the board. Evacuation is also good, as it leaves your equipment on the field and Tetsuko only costs 2 mana.

With so many artifacts in the deck, I think Vedalken Archmage would be huge boon. Riddlesmith and Thoughtcast could also be options.

Some additional control could be useful, like a Desertion and Mystic Confluence.

Well, that's all I have for now, but I think this looks interesting.

Notably Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain is a linear upgrade to Vedalken Archmage in your colors. This card is also new so once prices stabilize it should be pretty cheap.
