Shirei with an artifact theme, it might be a stupid idea, but I really want to deviate from the typical strategy. Alot of the Shirei lists I've seen are literally the same deck +/- 10 cards.

I'm especially inspired by Marionette Master and the Triskelion-esque interaction for tokens and sacrifice fodder.

I need to cut some janky creatures for some more black good-stuff and haymakers.

Pls critique or recommend whatever you might think would make this strategy more functional.

Thanks for reading!

Awesome deck idea! I love original ideas. Have you considered Thopter Squadron? I feel as though he offers a fair contribution to your theme. I also really like Skeleton Shard, Noxious Gearhulk, Buried Alive, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, and Mesmeric Orb.

Mesmeric Orb will help fuel your recursion effects, Crypt of Agadeem, and could disrupt opponents.

Lastly, Metalwork Colossus could be insane in this deck!

Great idea!

Thanks, Adamaro.

Metalwork Colossus looks like a beast! It'll be easy to play and keep on the board. Thopter Squadron is exactly what I'm looking for. I'm surprised I missed it.

Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact will be devastating if I can get some consistent sac outlets. I've just got to figure out what to cut and the right ratio.

JLycanthrope I'm glad you liked my suggestions! Thanks! I would heavily consider Viscera Seer, she's somewhat of a staple for this style of deck. If you want more of any artifact theme for sac outlets maybe these will help? Carnage Altar, Phyrexian Vault, Trading Post, and Spawning Pit.

There are some lands that work well with your theme as well! Phyrexia's Core, and High Market are fairly cheap includes(: If you want some more utility lands that don't sacrifice creatures, there is always Inventors' Fair, Buried Ruin, Spawning Bed, and Foundry of the Consuls.

For further theme boosting goodness!

I thought of a few other very interesting option you may appreciate, including: Genesis Chamber, Panharmonicon, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Copper Gnomes, and Animation Module.

I apologize for the mass quantity of suggestions, I'm extremely intrigued by your list and thought.

For other lands that may work with the artifact and token theme: Blinkmoth Nexus and Tomb of the Spirit Dragon. OKAY I'll stop there for now! Haha
