Enchantress-esque cards for artifacts

Commander (EDH) forum

Posted on May 10, 2018, 10:42 p.m. by luther

So, I am sitting here staring at the beautiful art for Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and it hits me... an equipment "enchantress" deck for edh.

There is of course Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, as well as Puresteel Paladin, Sram, Senior Edificer and Vedalken Archmage that act as perfect "enchantresses".

Along with those there are some looting effects that could work in Riddlesmith and Jeskai Ascendancy as well.

My main questions are, are there any similar effects that I am missing, and Who should be my commander for this beast?

Akiri, Line-Slinger // Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist would fit the deck themes of artifact matters, and drawing cards. Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is another partner option with Akiri.

For commander I would personally recommend Ruhan of the Fomori. A 7/7 for and could very much benefit from leading an Equipment deck if nothing else.

As for suggestions regarding looting type effects I dug up Compulsion, Burning Inquiry, Desperate Ravings, Merfolk Looter, Urza’s Tome, and Customs Depot to name a few off the top of my noodle. I must say that alongside these effects Library of Leng is an all-star.

Hope this helped, even if it's slighlty

Of course the usual Rhystic Study for any blue deck. I would also run a Jori En, Ruin Diver if you go blue red. The only "problem" with Sram is that you make yourself only open to one color.

I am on the Akiri, Line-Slinger + ??? Gameplan I think. As far as the looting and draw, I want it to be incidental from casting my equips like the ones I mentioned. If I find more looting ones that I like though, I will certainly add in Library of Leng. Thanks for the comments guys!

I am thinking jeskai will be the way to go. Mono white doesn't have enough of what I want, but there are 3 great white cards for this plan (sram, paladin, jeskai ascendancy).

There are some solid options for Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, which include:

Padeem, Consul of Innovation

Vedalken Archmage

Quicksmith Genius

Riddlesmith

Molten Psyche

Daretti, Scrap Savant

Dack Fayden

Those should be a good start if you stick with Izzet.

I kind of like Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest as commander for this list. Artifact storm beatdown seems fun. That or as suggested, Akiri, Line-Slinger + Kraum, Ludevic's Opus for even more card advantage.

Don't forget to include ways to recur artifacts if you're gonna be looting. Dumping a whole bunch of artifacts, then playing Open the Vaults sounds too fun to ignore.

Azdranax, Quicksmith Genius is exactly what I wanted!!

enpc I like Shu as well, but I think Akiri might be slightly better. Probably with Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist due to cmc.

Rzepkanut I love Monastery Mentor for this! I hadn't even considered that before!

MagicalHacker, I don't mind Open the Vaults, but I think I might like things that will put my yard back into the library like Elixir of Immortality since it is an artifact that makes it so I can continue to draw cards without losing. It may still snag a spot since it is still pretty spicy

luther, I think I have some other cards like it on MagicalHacker - List of All Recursion Cards, but I can't remember...

MagicalHacker this might just be something for me to gatherer search myself, but do you happen to have a list of graveyard to library shuffle effects?

No, but I do have a linky link.

That linky link gave me a real nice piece Drafna's Restoration

Sigarda's Aid is a must. Nothing more satisfying than flashing in equipment directly onto an attacking creature.

Flashing in 1/3 of my deck and attaching it directly to my attacking commander!
