This deck is going to be put under changes in the near future, it will either become a general that is considered one of the more competitive mono blue commanders, Azami, Lady of Scrolls. Or I will be shifting this deck towards a Mass Polymorph deck.

Just placing these as lists of cards that I need/want to try out. The first one is just a list of cards that I wish to put into the deck to make it better no matter what route I take. (these will be cards that are going to be included very soon.)Sky Diamond, Whir of Invention, Snow-Covered Island, Coldsteel Heart, Buried Ruin, Chrome Mox, Dramatic reversal, Gush, Extraplanar Lens, Muddle the Mixture, Long-Term Plans, Frantic Search, Back to Basics, Merchant Scroll, Mystical Tutor.

This next list is the cards I would need to make it a Mass Polymorph deck. Mass Polymorph, Synthetic Destiny, Polymorph, Proteus Staff. Deadeye Navigator, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Blightsteel Colossus, Palinchron, Tidespout Tyrant

And lastly the last list is if i pushed it towards a Azami, Lady of Scrolls deck. /note for azami I will have to up the mana rock count by 5+ thus also including Paradox EngineMind Over Matter, Aphetto Alchemist, Cursecatcher, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Laboratory Maniac, Martyr of Frost, Sage of Epityr, Sea Scryer, Snapcaster Mage, Stonybrook Banneret, Trinket Mage, Vedalken AEthermage

This last list is cards that I wish to put into the deck when I clear up funds for this particular deck.Time Spiral, Scalding Tarn, Polluted Delta, Misty Rainforest, Flooded Strand, Cavern of Souls, Sensei's Divining Top, Mox Opal, Mox Diamond, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Grim Monolith, Mana Drain, Force of Will,

Looking good, you could always add black and make it Dimir, but if you don't want to I understand. I like to go my own way too.

Other then that, I think you may need a few more Mechanized Production or Whir of Invention to make it more likely to get your Production out.

Walking Ballista is an amazing card, very handy. Also Heart of Kiran is great.

Nice deck though, let us know how it plays!

Looking for:

Whir of Invention

Mechanized Production

Gonti's Aether Heart

And Hope of Ghirapur in addition to these planeswalkers. If you're interested please don't hesitate to message me!

Don't forget that clues are tokens too. Tireless Tracker can make a bunch of clue tokens especially with Evolving Wilds.

If you aren't committed to being 1 color, moving into blue green also gives you Glint-Nest Crane, Erdwal Illuminator and Whir of Invention

_Kane_ on Breya, the Thopter Queen

Hello Friend. IMO.

Skysovereign, Consul Flagship for Goblin Welder A limited bomb...I am unsure if it carries it full mana cost in commander.

Darksteel Forge for Etched Oracle

Thopter Spy Network for Whipflare

Spire of Industry for Hellkite Igniter Terrible Win con IMO.

Kuldotha Forgemaster for Chandra, Torch of Defiance I actually believe she has little synergy and doesn't benefit the over strategy of the decks design.

Whir of Invention for Pia Nalaar

Scrap Trawler for Foundry Inspector Built-in recursion through deck design outweighs the benefit from the reduction in casting cost.

Hangarback Walker for Vedalken Engineer

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast for Faerie Artisans

Other random ideas:

Combustible Gearhulk

Anguished Unmaking



Mycosynth Lattice

I think you should include more payoff cards that reward you for having a lot of artifacts. These aren't all in your current colors (i've found is black blue or red to be the best colors for artifacts in this set) but i'm just spitballing a few

Tezzeret the Schemer, Tezzeret, Master of Metal, Contraband Kingpin, Marionette Master

also improvise cards like: Bastion Inventor, Battle at the Bridge, Herald of Anguish, Maverick Thopterist, Reverse Engineer, Sly Requisitioner, Whir of Invention
