mtgApprentice21 on Breya, Ghost in the Shell OVER 65 INFINITE COMBOS

You need to update this deck. Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and Vedalken Archmage give staggering card advantage when you have Paradox Engine. The amount of card draw is even more ridiculous with the Sensei's Divining Top. The Engine also gives you infinite draw with the Top if you throw in one of these cards or combos: -Clock of Omens (Tap the Top multiple times) -Voltaic Key (Tap the Top twice) -Strionic Resonator (cast spell, tap Top, copy Engine's trigger, repeat steps 2 and 3) -Rings of Brighthearth (You know how this will work since you already have Rings) -Vedalken Orrery + Phyrexian Metamorph/Sculpting Steel (As long as you have two Divining Tops, you'll actually be able to get through mana floods no problem.) -Vedalken Orrery + Vedalken Archmage/Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain (put multiple draw effects on the stack by casting spells and tapping the top in response to one another.) The only other thing to mention here is that Crucible of Worlds is completely unfair with the artifact lands + Krark-Clan Ironworks, or ANY land if you have the lattice out. It also lets you abuse that Inventors' Fair you've got, as well as your fetch lands.

Thanks for the tips. This is still a work in progress, so the final run will look a lot different than the current one. Budget is the key word in this first build, if it turns out to be working, I might add some more value cards to strengthen it. I know I should go into blue, but I really want to try not to.

You're right about Fertile Ground, it's too costly. The upside is that you can put it on Darksteel Citadel, which can be untapped with Voltaic Servant (or maybe Voltaic Key?). In each case, I think I'm going to replace it by two more Llanowar Elves for the time being.

About Darksteel Colossus: this should of course be Blightsteel Colossus as this gives you an alternate win-con, but I don't own this card.

About Power Conduit, I don't agree a 100% with your assessment because I'm hoping to get Winding Constrictor out. At that time it doesn't as much move the charge counters, but doubles them.

About the tutoring, I guess I should add Ancient Stirrings (which i don't own).

I have a Voltaic Key, and if I could attain a Sensei's Divining Top, that would be the best, and would really work well with the deck. Memnite, Mishra's Bauble, Helm of Awakening, Inventors' Fair, Windfall, Voltaic Key, Sensei's Divining Top, Saheeli Rai, and Nettle Drone are the ones I most want to fit in. Thanks for all the suggestions peeps!

Howdy, Amoebamantis!

I think with the addition of two cards, you could have another, fairly solid, combo. Voltaic Key and Sensei's Divining Top go quite nicely in this deck on their own. However, together with Paradox Engine and a rock producing at least two mana, you have the ability to draw your entire deck! You mentioned it is a budget build, but I think Top is a reasonably attainable card if you want to go for a non-NM.

Hope this helps!

I have a similar setup, but with Nevinyrral's Disk, so that every time it's your turn, you effectively boardwipe all opponents. Normally, It's supposed to be a one-time use, as it destroys itself, but darksteel forge makes it an infinite effect, and things like Voltaic Key make it even worse.

Onigma on Kefnet, The Handful

Kudos for building Kefnet Voltron, turning Kefnet sideways is the best! I have a few comments:

Have you ever thought about playing more timetwister effects to fill your hand? you already have time spiral and commit, there is also Time Reversal and Game Plan. If you want to dig deeper still there is also Day's Undoing and Diminishing Returns. It seems like you have enough permanents in your deck to play out your hand, so why not use those to refill your hand? Those incidentally also act as graveyard hate.

Also consider Inquisitor's Flail as a backup for Fireshrieker. Redundancy is never a bad thing.

Brass Squire is a easy way to equip Kefnet, especially if you have more untappers like Vizier of Tumbling Sands, Aphetto Alchemist, Voltaic Key and Fatestitcher

If you are going to consider Training Grounds, also consider Illusionist's Bracers. Again, redundancy is never a bad thing.

I have a considerably higher budget Kefnet Voltron deck Kefnet Savage Beaking (Multiplayer EDH). It might not be everyone's cup of tea but maybe you will find some ideas there that might interest you.

Hey mate! I've checked your lists and liked them as well!
I want you to know that I've considered what you said for the uptade I made to my deck today hahaha
Most of those cards are/were there just barely fulfilling some functions. Voltaic Key was actually not helping me at all. Ojutai was able to help me a few times, but most of the time was just an unnecessary drop. Authority of the Consuls just feel weak, as you said.
I'll be looking for some of your suggestions, such as Eerie Interlude (this one looks awesome) and some tutors to test them out. Thank you!
