Mishra's Science Fair Project

Commander / EDH* Artifact Casual U/B/R (Grixis)




The goal of this deck is to play effects, such as Possibility Storm or Blood Funnel, that makes the game harder for opponents to play while using Mishra to cheat around or even benefit from them. Suggestions welcome!

How it works:

Example 1, Possibility Storm:

  • Step 1: Cast an Artifact

  • Step 2: Two triggers occur; Possibility Storm, and Mishra, Artificer Prodigy's search effect for said Artifact. Place Mishra's trigger onto the stack first, then Possibility Storm's on top.

  • Step 3: Resolve Possibility Storm, ultimately putting the next artifact on top your library into play, and then all revealed cards, and the Artifact onto the bottom of your library

  • Step 4: Resolve Mishra's trigger, searching your library for a copy of the first Artifact to put directly into play.

Example 2, Counters:

  • Step 1: Cast an Artifact

  • Step 2: Stack Mishra's trigger first, then the triggered counter spell effect on top.

  • Step 3: Resolve the counter spell, countering the Artifact, placing it in your graveyard.

  • Step 4: Resolve Mishra's trigger, search your graveyard for a copy of the cast Artifact, put it into play for free.

How about using a general that actually DOES something? This guy is useless in EDH.

He makes all artifacts uncounterable and he has unique interactions with each enchantment in the list.

endersblade Mishra is actually pretty interesting. He does do things in edh if you actually take the time to think about it. With cards like Blood Funnel, which counter the card, it 'll go to the graveyard with the mishra ability on the stack, then come into play with his ability since its in the graveyard. These cards also have the additional effect of making your stuff normal to cast while making it more expensive or more difficult for the opponent to cast. Or with blood funnel, a bit cheaper actually.

I personally think that this deck could use more ramp. You've got 5 right now that I noticed with Solemn Simulacrum Burnished Hart Gilded Lotus Thran Dynamo and Sol Ring. But in my experience, EDH is all about who plays the biggest/ most threatening things the fastest. Since I didn't see any crazy artifact infinite combos or anything really dirty, Ramp would definitely help you out. I'd add in the signets, talismans, Commander's Sphere, Chromatic Lantern, Darksteel Ingot, Coalition Relic, and others if you wanted more. There are tons of ramp cards you can find here. I'll generally have around 10 ramp cards per deck no matter what I'm playing. Also, I noticed that you've got Cancel in the deck. That could be Dissolve, which is strictly better. Or even Counterspell.

Just a few of my thoughts as I looked over the deck.

Maybe I'm not reading the card right, but how does Mishra prevent artifact spells from being countered?

You should try Sensei's Divining Top and Scroll Rack so you can plan out your Possibility Storms. Maybe Clever Impersonator so you can copy Possibility Storm

Just learning about the process of how Mishra works inspired me to make a deck around this and Nether Void. Thank you.
