Workshop Assistant Discussion

Corrosive_Cat on Muzzio's Machinations

Arch of Orazca would make a good replacement for Blighted Cataract, Metalwork Colossus is probably pretty funky and there's some good jank you can do with it, Grand Architect, Soldevi Machinist, Vedalken Engineer and Renowned Weaponsmith could be cool too, and Workshop Assistant is more recursion if you needed it. Cool deck!

I play eggs quite a bit as well, and I think you should put in Workshop Assistant Metalspinner's Puzzleknot, I know that theme of your deck means that you want to slap someone in the face but I think you should consider more options to killing people like Aetherflux Reservoir or Disciple of the Vault.

I think you should put in the Terrarion and Quicksmith Genius (there is a sensei's top and quicksmith combo). I find that I can dump my deck into the graveyard quickly(which is ultimately what an eggs deck wants to do).

Although I find that Quicksmith Genius is to mana intensive to play sometimes.

It might just come from a different vision of the deck but you don't have easy ways to win other than just looping artifacts with pia/jeskai on the board. You don't have easy things like Paradox Engine, Temple Bell, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Basalt Monolith, cheap one mana draw spells.

You also have dead cards Clock of Omens Salvaging Station Reshape Trinket Mage (doesn't currently do anything) Voltaic Key (doesn't currently do anything)

You have weak cards Daretti, Scrap Savant Fact or Fiction Mystic Monastery Path of Ancestry Lotus Bloom (unless you t1 lotus)

In addition it seems like you are unable to actually utilize most of the spellbombs because they are too colored mana intensive. You don't run all of the eggs from odyssey that you can. You also don't have any interaction with your opponents. Other than that you basically got eggs down.

Thanks for the comment! I don't know if you noticed that I also have two Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip which are legendary lands that have the ability to give me A LOT of mana in this deck.

As for Augmenting Automaton and Workshop Assistant, I just had them in here, because I was using cards that I currently owned to see if this was even a good idea before I put money into it. Augmenting Automaton has been a nice card to be able to pump up early game and block or get some attacks in. To be honest though I've not used Workshop Assistant's ability.

I'll look into adding Reckless Fireweaver into the deck and see what happens!

Thanks for the ideas!

ok, the Augmenting Automaton and the Workshop Assistants are just bad. Also, put in a few more lands, 16 isnt enough for any deck. Also, consider Reckless Fireweaver. U have many red sources, and helps deal a LOT of damage to their face.

Np glad I could help. Here is a few other cards you could consider Street Wraith, Serum Powder, Myr Superion, Beseech the Queen, and Workshop Assistant.

Street Wraith and Serum Powder are good because with a good opening hand, this deck can easily win on turn two. Myr Superion makes a nice back up plan with Heartless Summoning. Beseech is just a cheap tutor that can usually get any of your combo pieces. Workshop Assistant works as a stand in for Myr Retriever if you get two Summonings online.

@z2disciple Thanks for the reply. I somehow forgot about that card. What I've had the most success with so far is: this deck -4 Terrarion, -1 Workshop Assistant, +2 Implement of Malice, +2 Foundry Inspector, +1 Key to the City. I really like Foundry Inspector because it makes it easier to get combos off, especially with the Implements and a sac outlet such as Ravenous Intruder. It pretty much forces your opponent to take the damage from Pia's Revolution and allows you to empty your hand much more efficiently. I also like Key to the City as a finisher. I know you had it in this deck before and I think it works really well with Ravenous Intruder. If you're going for an instant evasion for the sideboard instead I personally think Fling is better than Rush of Adrenaline since it allows you to work around removal which is big in standard. I'll do some testing with Renegade Map and I'll report my findings in a few weeks or so.

You could try Thornbite Staff, it makes it so whenever you sacrifice a creature with your commander he will untap allowing you to do it again. Summoning Station is also a great include since it combos super well with Mycosynth Lattice allowing you to make unlimited tokens to sacrifice to your commander.

March of the Machines is also a super powerful include, since you can drop some seriously big none creature artifacts very quickly and make them all indestructible with the forge which also becomes a 9/9. Then on top of that, with Mycosynth Lattice, it will turn all lands into 0/0 creatures and thus destroying them. While this hurts you as well, you get to control when this happens and would likely be ahead on the board, and you would also have your mana rocks to fall back on.

Other minor options would be Junk Diver, Workshop Assistant, Swiftfoot Boots, Thousand-Year Elixir, Thran Dynamo, Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, Dreamstone Hedron, Extraplanar Lens, and Gauntlet of Power.
