Said on And I'll Pay ......

That's a good advise I guess, I will keep it in mind

Have you ever considered Grimoire of the Dead. Just stumbled across it, and thought it could be retty sweet for this kinda deck. It might just enable a win on it's own in some matchups or act as a lightning rod at least.

I dunno, just wanted to give you the heads up at least ;)

I actually didn't know Bruna, the Fading Light's trigger was a cast trigger. That makes the card even better than I thought (I was planning on buying both pieces foil very soon even before knowing this)

Remember that Desolation Giant's kicker is also a cast trigger, so it doesn't work with stuff like Summoner's Egg or False Demise.

I would very much like a list of the Faerie Artisan combo's that appear, the thought of them almost made me build the deck ;).

Also, Faerie Artisans is extremely cheeky, god damn. Here's the line:

Step 1: You just play the artisan. I have played it a bit in the past, and it's not particularly exciting but totally ok, especially as a defensive card.

Step 2: Make sure to develop Zedruu the Greathearted

Step 3: Give an opponent control of Faerie Artisans with zedruu and play Leveler to kill them at their next draw step (note that faerie artisans's ability is not a may ability). Or in a game with multible people still alive, play Sky Swallower to take their board (including Faerie Artisans).

I admit, it's not very likely to happen, but it's actually mor consistent than Brisela, Voice of Nightmares, and potentially gamewinning if you ever pull it off.

The idea seems very fun, but with no tutor's pretty inconsistent. Since you are not in green I would suggest running an artifact tutor package to get Torpor Orb. Besides being easier to fetch, being an artifact makes it a lot easier to stick on the board through the many creature board wipes in multiplayer edh. I'm a big fan of Whir of Invention myself, and Fabricate is great too. Although a little more pricey, Gamble is totally worth it too, it even synergizes well with all the draw form. Other options include Hoarding Dragon if you wanna go cheap, or Enlightened Tutor if you want to go expensive. Running artifact tutoring means more Despotic Scepter and hate pieces like Pithing Needle (another favorite of mine, it is SO much better than I first thought)

There are a couple of cards in the deck I don't like as much, mainly because they don't work well with Torpor Orb in play: Akroan Horse, Bruna, the Fading Light and Desolation Giant. Remember that the tokens given to your opponents are not owned by you:

From the Comprehensive Rules (Dominaria (April 27, 2018)) 110.5a A token is both owned and controlled by the player under whose control it entered the battlefield.

Desolation Giant is bad with Torpor Orb as well as without it compared to a card like Phyrexian Rebirth. If you really want the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares, and don't care that you have little to no tutors and a deck that really tries hard to stop the reanimation trigger, I won't be one to stop you, Brizzy is pretty dope ;)

Cool that you are having success with such a wild build though! Hf my guy
