Hey bud,I like your idea of using Thrasios with the eggs/bomberman engine! I also really like thopter combo with tymna as another draw engine. With that being said I dont know exactly what your gameplan is and there are a number of card choices I don't understand. I apologize ahead of time if I come across as overly critical.

Lingering Souls: Is there a combo I am not seeing?

Green Sun's Zenith: You aren't using any green creatures except mana dorks so I dont think this is worth a slot.

Open the Vaults: You don't appearto have enough artifacts or enchantments to fully abuse this engine.

Master Transmuter: You arent using many of the crazy expensive artifacts to put her ability to full use unless there is a combo I am not seeing

Peregrine Drake + Eldrazi Displacer doesnt really synergize with the rest of the deck as far as I can tell given your lack of etb creatures for displacer or a reanimation engine to cheat drake into play. Yes they goes infinite, but do these cards serve any other purpose?

Cranial Plating: Is this just for beatdown?

Nature's Lore: why not a rock?

Phyrexian Arena: Since you dont discard cards much in this deck why not Necropotence? You can use Nature's Claim to remove it before it exiles anything and if you make the deck heavy artifacts and instants Shimmer Myr could allow you to essentially play your deck at your end step before you have to discard any cards.

As for cards I would suggest, I feel like eggs are best when they are a somewhat all in strategy. There are a number of eggs and rocks you could include to make the eggs engine more robust. You also arent using Ad Nauseam despite your curve being ideal for it. I also think Helm of Awakening would fit nicely.

Cheers for the feedback. Yeah, the deck is a bit all over the place at hte moment - I had a few ideas I wanted to integrate however I think its gotten to the point where I just need to pick a primary theme and stick with it.

Lingering Souls was just in there as a value piece with Tymna, so I think I'll replace it with Shimmer Myr.

Green Sun's Zenith was there as a psuedo-ramp card and also helped find Eternal Witness. Probably could be something better.

Open the Vaults I'm on the fence about . it's good to have it as a backup eggs combo piece however it's really expensive to use. Is there something you can think of which would be better? I think I will try to up the artifact count though and I do like that it's not "this turn".

Master Transmuter was just a way of getting things like Krark-Clan Ironworks or Lotus Bloom into play easily but I could proabaly cut it for something else.

Peregrine Drake + Eldrazi Displacer is a throwbackto my Damia deck and I thought It would be good to have one combo set in the deck that didn't need the graveyard to work. Plus Displacer means that I can get damage through more easily with Tymna, however I do know what you mean with it. I'll have a think to see if there's another combo that works better.

Cranial Plating is just for beatdown yeah, however I think I'm going to swap it out for Arcbound Ravager + Inkmoth Nexus as it gives me another sac outlet and can be a good backup win condition. thoughts?

Nature's Lore is good in that it lets me choose the kind of mana that I want to get, rather than having hte luck of the draw. While I should be primarily focusing on rocks, I still think it's worth having.

I've always been on the fence about Necropotence - I know it's a really solid card, just the idea of having somebody wheel and having to "discard" my hand seems terrifying to me. I don't know if I'm being overly paranoid but with a combo deck, having one of oyur priamy wincons exiled seems really bad. Howeve I do know how solid it is as a card.

Not sure if I want to go down the Ad Nauseam route just yet, though it is a very solid card. As for Helm of Awakening, I really like it but isn't there a concern that I accelerate my opponent's deck too?

So I was thinking that an ideal secondary combo for an artifact heavy eggs build for thrasios is Dramatic reversal + Isochron Scepter It shares a tutor with your thopter combo in Muddle the Mixture and is cheaper and more synergistic with the rest of the deck. It also avoids the graveyard. It also produces infinite storm for Aetherflux Reservoir.

As for ad nauseum, Necropotence, and Helm of Awakening its all about raw power. Ues they can backfire, but if you pair an Angel's Grace or shimmer myr to either you pretty much are guaranteed victory. They require some buildaround but there is literally nothing as powerful.

I think Open the Vaults is great, you just need to build around it. I liked your deck so much I made my own version of it. The basic idea is to maximize the number of tap for profit sources, instants and artifacts. I also abuse wheel effects to provide extra easy wins.

So I decided to add dramatic scepter and Aetherflux Reservoir as the "no graveyard" combo. I think it has a lot more synergy with the rest of the deck. It does however make me want to find space for a Sydri, however this probably won't happen.

I'm glad you like the deck and I'd be interested to see your spin on it.

Here is what I have so far. Im loving having so much ramp. I usually avoid this many fast mana sources and the eggs work well with top deck tutors. Due to how quickly rocks let me dump my hand I am trying to run as much mass card advantage sources as possible.

I love the changes. How has Arcbound Ravager been for you?

Honestly, I haven't played the deck yet. I don't really play online so the deck is more academic than field tested :P

But I like the ravager (in theory at least). I decided to run an Inkmoth Nexus which can be devastating with him in play. Plus he gets sill with Hangarback Walker. I'm seriously considering making some space for Underhanded Designs though.
