Sharuum the Hegemon Artifact Blink
Posted on Jan. 5, 2019, 11:16 a.m. by Unlife
I've been looking through few of my older decks, trying to update and improve them. I've overhauled this one white heavily, but it still feel clunky. I was hoping for some advice from people who run artifact/blink/sharuum decks. Things that have worked, that haven't worked, etc. It doesn't need to be cEDH competitive but I would like it to hold its own. Deck is linked below, I do have the usual Sharuum the Hegemon+Sculpting Steel/Phyrexian Metamorph+Dire Undercurrents/Disciple of the Vault/Bitter Ordeal combo built in. Thanks in advance

The more you want to streamline the deck, the more you'll want to just focus on assembling your win condition. This means cutting a lot of the heavy costed cards in the deck in favour of more ramp/card advantage and protection.
At the moment your list still runs a lot of really high CMC cards (your average is above 4) while running very little ramp to offset. to put it in perspective, I have a cEDH deck with an average CMC of ~1.7 which, while running less lands than yours, runs somewhere in the order of ~20 ramp cards. Including land, over half the deck is devoted to making mana.
I'm not saying you have to go that aggressive, but the less clunky you want the deck to be, the more you need to look at stuff like that.
