Voltaic Key Discussion

Dude, you need Karn, Silver Golem and Memnarch in this deck 'cause Mycosynth Lattice breaks them both! It lets Memnarch steal anything you want and turns Karn, Silver Golem into a land-destroyer! Instead of Staff of Domination, try Staff of Nin, and then main-board the Gilded Lotus and throw in Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient. Those plus Voltaic Key breaks the game as well! XD

Overall I like the deck, but I'm wondering about a few of your card choices. I expect many of them are driven by local meta, but I'm still curious.

Aven Mindcensor - obviously a good card in Stax but doesn't really advance your strategy.

Kiora's Follower and Voltaic Key - Nice for Thrasios // Kydele, but seems fairly innocuous here.

Paradox Engine - Obviously can be a good mana engine, but you already have much better in Bomberman and Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal.

Birthing Pod - I saw your explanation above but this seems fairly inefficient compared to other cards you could have in its place.

I notice you seem very short on black tutor cards. I understand Imperial Seal and Grim Tutor are prohibitively expensive, but there are Diabolic Intent, Diabolic Tutor and Dark Petition.

I'm also surprised there is no Sylvan Library. It's a fantastic draw engine, low CMC and fairly inexpensive.

Lastly, Tendrils of Agony is a great win con. Between the potential to cast Lion's Eye Diamond or Dramatic Reversal an unlimited number of times, Storm is a mechanism to brilliant to ignore IMO.

Thanks for the deck!

I would use Inventors' Fair because in mono brown you have almost no way to find anything in your deck except through card draw. Also use all cheap mana artifacts you can find (which isn't easy with your budget restriction), try to fit in Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Voltaic Key

Rings of Brighthearth would do well here as one of very few cars that is actually worth some dollars. Potentially a combo with Basalt Monolith but with the lack of tutors in the deck it will probably end up just copying random useful abilities like the draw abilitie of Hedron Archive

I don't think you currently have a way to have infinite turns since Part the Waterveil exiles itself on resolution and Walk the Aeons requires sacrificing lands to buy back. Here are some ways to go infinite with Riku

Eternal Witness+Conjurer's Closet+Walk the Aeons

Cast Walk the aeons, end step Conjurers Closet targets Witness, Witness gets back Walk the Aeons, take extra turn, repeat.

Sage of Hours+Sandsteppe Mastodon+Roaring Primadox or Conjurers Closet

Put 5 counters from Mastodon on Sage of Hours, remove counters to take another turn, next turn upkeep return Mastodon and recast, repeat. Or end step Conjurers Closet target Mastodon and bolster Sage of Hours again, repeat.

The oldest infinite turns combo that's ever existed is expesive but efficient if you can afford it. Time Vault+Voltaic Key

Tap Time Vault, take extra turn, untap Time Vault with Key, repeat.

Other infinite combos you can do in Temur colors

Presence of Gond+Intruder Alarm for infinite tokens

Splinter Twin or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker+Deceiver Exarch or Pestermite or Bounding Krasis or Zealous Conscripts for infinite copies or Combat Celebrant for infinite combats.

Ex. Put Splinter Twin on Pestermite, token copy of Pestermite untaps original Pestermite with Splinter Twin on it, tap again to make another copy, repeat

Squirrel Nest+Earthcraft+Goblin Bombardment for infinite damage

Make a squirrel, tap squirrel to untap land with Nest on it, and then sacrifice tokens for damage

Hive Mind+Summoner's Pact or Pact of Negation or Pact of the Titan

Cast Pact, then each opponent is forced to cast a pact, on upkeep if they are playing the color of the pact and are unable to pay the upkeep cost they die.

Hope this gets the brewing juices flowing!

You have to think a little out of the box. Jareth, Leonine Titan+Strionic Resonator+Voltaic Key/Thousand-Year Elixir = a +14/+14 or +21/+21.
for resonator, for voltaic, and for Jareth = . That is a good bargain for that CMC cost.

I took a look at you deck and I went ahead and dropped Punish Ignorance and Undermine for Voltaic Key and Altar of the Brood. Will comment on the deck after I have had more time to look at it.
