Barricade Breaker

Artifact Creature — Juggernaut

Improvise (Your artifacts can help cast this spell. Each artifact you tap after you're done activating mana abilities pays for .)

Barricade Breaker attacks each combat if able.

Kjartan the first few iterations of this auto included Barricade Breaker lol. I got my start back into magic during kaladesh haha. So my heart is always there. But sadly I constantly had inconsistent hands with it in. I am toying with the idea of maybe 2 in it. But we shall see! Hahaha.

And as for the other additions. I found that I kept ending up with the affinity cards in hand more often then not. Clogging up my first turn plays the way I wanted. So I just left the Chiss cards out as a result.

However your suggestion of Briber's Purse is a good one. I didn’t pay attention to its effect before to be honest with ya. I think I’ll swap it for Sigil of Distinction. I can see it being quite helpful.

Thanks!

I think you should consider playing Barricade Breaker and some big affinity creatures. They add to the explosiveness of the deck, and have historically performed even better than Salvage Titan in an all artifact strategy, but they have the caveat that you always want to go second.

If that change in plan is not up your ally, thare are other minor upgrades I think you could get, like updating you 0-cost package.

You don't need cards that do nothing, there are enough great 0-drops to go around.

Briber's Purse, Tooth of Chiss-Goria, Scale of Chiss-Goria could all dig into your land count and your most do-nothing 0-drops.

Interesting, I'm gonna experiment with using less Barricade Breaker and more Salvage Titan. Any reason not to run a fourth Sojourner's Companion though?

sorry i made an mistake i couldnt play Barricade Breaker anyways because it has improvise and i need to tap my artifacts in order to cast it so even if i would have 9 artifacts in play i would have to tap out all my creatures and wait an additional turn thats why i cut him out in the first place.

greenweird i know what you mean Barricade Breaker is strong but you need at least two draws to hardcast him and most of the time you wont have enough artifacts in play for that. I may play him as 1 of just to tutor with sanctum.

Thought Monitor is super powerful but for manaless affinity its too dependant on colored mana and most of the time you wont have it. Zuran Orb seems like deadwight. it doesnt do mch other than gaining some life and eating away slots. iam more a fan of saccing three for a power 6 creature like Salvage Titan preferably turn one.

Scale of Chiss-Goria is indeed better than Tormod's Crypt but its also more expensive i could try to reduce my "free" artifact spell count but i feel like it would be too slow after that.

i ran a huge amount of goldfisch playtests with this deck and i found out i can kill on turn 4 about 60-70% of the time. Thats okayish. I would want it to be faster and sometimes i can get those turn 3 kills but its too rare for now. in this state i rarely have to go more than turn 5 to kill the goldfish.

I don't terribly like using Salvage Titan, since while it can be casted for free, it eats your affinities, preventing you to play Myr Enforcer and the likes if you later draws them, so I kept only one. I'm surprised yours neither have Scale of Chiss-Goria or Barricade Breaker, the former being a free artifact that's actually useful, and the latter being the thing you ideally curve out on during your turn 1 with the help of the ugin land. Vault Skirge looks funny, I might try that on my own deck. I'm also toying with having Thought Monitor and Power Depot in my deck, and possibly also Zuran Orb, but I haven't decided how I'm feeling with them.

Surprising that Signal Pest hasn't been a consideration, and if we're looking at classic value for Affinity, I think I'd recommend Barricade Breaker, Sojourner's Companion, and Sanctum of Ugin to get to that value a little faster. Overall, this build is really cool, and inherently I love the fact it's "Mono Green". "Scales" is a longtime favorite strategy of mine and I really loved your list.

SufferFromEDHD I appreciate it, man. Scale of Chiss-Goria is useful to protect Barricade Breaker from cards like Dismember. Lotus Petal and Mox Opal can't help cast my creatures with Improvise through their abilities. If I wanted to add both of them, I should probably swap Ornithopter, Phyrexian Walker, Scale of Chiss-Goria and/or Shield Sphere for Bone Saw, Paradise Mantle, Signal Pest and/or Springleaf Drum.
