Description

Introduction

Arcum Dagsson is a top tier cEDH combo deck that revolves around Tinkering for Paradox Engine, then making infinite mana and wining with an arbitrarily large Walking Ballista. Arcum is resilient due to the fact that you can play a toolbox style deck, and run cards like Spine of Ish Sah and Relic of Progenitus for disruption. Some versions play a stax package including Winter Orb and Static Orb, however after testing I opted to go for more of a more dedicated combo route.

--You (and your playgroup) don't mind you solitairing the deck

--You like artifacts

--You like playing Blue

--You can play as the Archenemy sometimes

--You hate infinite combos

--Your playgroup is more casual, eg. pubstomp decks the win via combat damage and don't use infinite combos


The Strategy

General Strategy Content
I usually mulligan if I have any of Paradox Engine or Citanul Flute. It is far more mana efficient to tutor them with Arcum than cast them. Keep anything else. Mana rocks are super important to ramp early game, disruption spells to counter their stuff, cantrips to draw into more disruption or mana rocks, and creatures to sacrifice to Arcum.
