Rabid_Wombat on Sai’s Thopter Combo!

Got the cards in the mail and have added a couple more to your list:

Whirler Rogue - More thopters and unblockable ability. Grand Architect- Turns thopters into milling machines when combined with Sands of Delirium. Kuldotha Forgemaster- sac cheap thopters for Wurmcoil Engine, Spine of Ish Sah or whatever you need. Thopter Spy Network- More thopters, more card draw. Tidespout Tyrant- can be game winning when combined with all those Zero cost Artifacts. Retrofitter Foundry- is super cool with the Dramatic Scepter combo!

That seems like a really good compromise, my friend! Janky combos ususally don't hurt people's feelings, and the combo pieces synergize just fine with the rest of your deck even if the engine isn't assembled.

Now that you've narrowed in on tokens/aristocrats with potential combo, it's easy to select haymakers for that deck. For starters, Chief Engineer is one of my favorite cards of all time. Blinkmoth Urn, too. Welding Jar to save your best piece in the event of a Shatterstorm. Go Brittle Effigy instead of Oblivion Stone, and then use Nevinyrral's Disk as a mass removal.

And then I think you need more token production -- Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Whirler Rogue, Thopter Spy Network, Hangarback Walker, Thopter Foundry, Thopter Assembly, stuff with Improvise and Affinity abilities, the new Saheeli Rai (and the old one I guess!). Hope this helps(: I'd cut down on the flicker synergies since artifact sacrifice + recursion + cost reduction lets you use similar effects, but all your pieces get to be artifacts. But that's just my advice to save some room in this list.

Raff is SO GOOD in this deck, like a 50 cent Vedalken Orrery. Play him. Always (:

@goodair That's exactly what happen! I untapped Azor's Gateway  Flip a bunch with Derevi, played Whirler Rogue and Judge's Familiar for a backup, then Shalai and beat face. My brother and I both love Derevi, art and all.

MEWLIO on Ezuri, infinite, counters, card draw

Ok. You definitely need more lands. 35 at the minimum, but I recommend 38. So you need to take out a lot of cards. Think about what you're going for. A +1/+1 counter strategy? Synergy? Lots of little creatures? Then start taking out cards that don't fit the key themes you want in your deck. I know its hard, but it'll make the deck much better. For example, if you want +1/+1 counters and synergy with those, then Bident of Thassa and Bounty of the Luxa might not be that good. What i might do is just make a list of what IN MY OPINION is jank and should go. Take it with a grain of salt if you want, but its probably for the best (if you want the reasoning behind any of these please ask me, I can't write it down for every card). Animation Module, Bident of Thassa, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Snakeform, Plasm Capture, Negate, Mirror Match, Cobra Trap, Bounty of the Luxa, From Beyond, Urban Evolution, Whirler Rogue, Viridian Corrupter, Thelonite Hermit, Patagia Viper, Altered Ego, Overrun. All those I would Definitely take out and replace with lands, then there are a bunch more which I could see the value, and they could be really cool, but I ultimately would have to cut. These are cards like Forgotten Ancient, Managorger Hydra and Kalonian Hydra. But I would test these cards before cutting them. You also have A LOT of ramp. Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Elvish Mystic ect. Maybe a little less ramp? I dunno, but these are my thoughts.

4Lark on Izzet Brown? (2018)

3 months ago

Thanks for the suggestion, Xinofos! I agree, Goblin Welder's a great card, especially with so many Servo tokens whirring around. However, Welder's not the strongest choice for Izzet Brown? (2018) since the deck's not going for a Scrap Mastery approach. Additionally, there's already a fair amount of artifact recursion in the deck, i.e. Academy Ruins, Buried Ruin, and Crucible of Worlds to reuse the latter. If anything, the deck wants another big artifact creature, most likely Blightsteel Colossus, to further capitalize on Saheeli, the Gifted's ramp ability. Outside of some corner cases in the deck, Goblin Welder's not going to remove an opponent from competition, whereas a Blightsteel Colossus, hasted with Thopter Engineer and made unblockable with Whirler Rogue, will. Finally, with the deck's copy effects (Saheeli, the Gifted's ultimate; Saheeli Rai's second ability; Saheeli's Artistry), Blightsteel Colossus can take out the table.

Thanks again for taking a look at the deck, Xinofos! I appreciate your suggestion and look forward to more. :-)
