MagicMarc on Hoarding Treasure: Pirate Oathbreaker

Hi, I found your deck because...pirates!

It does not show who your Oathbreaker is,(Planeswalker Commander), or your general's Signature Spell.

I am assuming your general is Tamiyo, Collector of Tales because she is your only 2 color planeswalker. And your signature spell is Assert Authority?

To have them show up in the deck list as the general and their signature spell, just edit the deck and after the card name add the following asteriskCMDRasterisk. Just put asterisks in front of and behind the code CMDR. Do that for both cards and they will show up as your general and their signature spell.

Affinity stuff!

And maybe also Coat of Arms, but I don't know if your aim is to go wide.

Atemsis is very neat. I like the way you organized your list.

You might consider these cards: Coalition Relic (can get Atemsis out on turn 4), Urza's Incubator , Muddle the Mixture (finds either piece of dramatic scepter), Spellseeker (finds Muddle), Rush of Knowledge , Assert Authority , Thoughtcast , Concentrate , Vedalken Mastermind , AEthersnipe , River Serpent , Lay Claim , Striped Riverwinder , Floodwaters , Windcaller Aven , New Perspectives

You should put in Mechanized Production and Render Silent, you could use some card draw like Paradoxical Outcome and Thoughtcast, really you'd dig anything with "Affinity for artifacts" like Qumulox, Assert Authority, and Broodstar I'd cut Platinum Angel because it's like $5 and you're usually budgeted

I like this idea a lot. Some ideas to help you out. Lay of the Land for some cheap basic land retrieval. Vedalken Shackles for a new way to steal creatures, but only if you have a good Island base. With the number of artifacts you have and need a counterspell aside from...well Counterspell I recommend Assert Authority or Override. Finally with the number of instants and sorceries I recommend Primal Amulet  Flip, get it to flip and you can copy a lot of your powerful instants and sorceries.

I think Stoic Rebuttal is straight better than Assert Authority. Unless the exile effect is very important

SlimJim83 on Arcanis Clues

Oh yeah, Assert Authority and Thoughtcast definitely make the list.

Artifact decks always have a special place in my heart. When I saw your decklist I thought up a few interesting suggestions that could add some big beefy threats to the mix, and accelerate your deck like...ten fold. Most of the suggestions are going to come from a set near and dear to my heart: Mirrodin. This set had an amazingly broken mechanic called Affinity for Artifacts. Additionally, i'm going to suggest cards that take advantage of the fact that you have so many artifacts.

I know these cards are basically taking your deck in a whole different direction...but they are amazing. What are your thoughts?
