Creature — Beast

Affinity for artifacts (This spell costs less to play for each artifact you control.)


Broodstar's power and toughness are each equal to the number of artifacts you control.

Honestly I just can't recall Mystic Forge having made an impact for me so far, and the deck is quite good at drawing cards (or playing them from the graveyard) already. It does seem like it should be a bigger help here--maybe I've just been unlucky and never drawn it when it mattered so far. I could probably put that back in.

The Urza's Command is there mostly for the Construct token, to complement Broodstar, Master of Etherium, and Nettlecyst as a potential finisher. I still need to try this out to see how well it works.

As for the rest, it is mostly a matter of budget--I've been playing more Limited lately, so I'm more trying to use what I get right now rather than buying more singles. These all look very useful though, so I'll definitely keep your suggestions in mind.

Phyrexian Walker, Ornithopter, and Memnite are all 0-cost artifact creatures that add to your artifact count and decrease Urza's cost for free. Thoughtcast and Thought Monitor are strong as well, plus Broodstar.

This is indeed a very funny affinity deck. I can help here, friend. (:

I also think that you should replace Welding Jar, Shadowspear, and Gingerbrute either wil three copies of Welding Jar or three copies of Shadowspear, putting three copies of the other into your sideboard.

Thanks, Rogue's Passage definitely looks useful for a giant Broodstar or Master of Etherium.

As for combos, the big one is probably Chakram Retriever + Emry, Lurker of the Loch or Emry, Lurker of the Loch + Mirran Spy . You can tap Emry to cast an artifact from your graveyard, then immediately untap her to do it again. With a 0-cost sacrificible artifact like Urza's Bauble, you can do this as much as you want, which triggers things like Sai, Master Thopterist and Efficient Construction every time the artifact comes into play. You can also sacrifice Ornithopter to Ashnod's Altar repeatedly this way for infinite mana. Foundry Inspector, Etherium Sculptor and Jhoira's Familiar make more of your artifacts cheap or free so you can recur them more. You can even make Solemn Simulacrum cheap enough this way to sacrifice it to Ashnod's Altar and cast it again with the mana you get, repeating for as much land and card draw as you want.

The deck doesn't rely on infinite combos or anything, and even a simple trick like Aether Spellbomb + Emry, Lurker of the Loch can let you bounce a troublesome creature at least once per turn. A lot of the stuff in here is maybe more just good synergy than true combos.

I'd suggest running the 4th Myr Enforcer and Sojourner's Companion over the Broodstar. I think the extra cost of Broodstar makes it a lot harder to cast, and swinging with a bunch of 4/4s earlier will almost always be preferable.

Broodstar maybe? Multiple copies of Bladegriff Prototype can be terrifying. Turning everything into a Sharding Sphinx can give you 50+ Thopters pretty easily. Ancient Stone Idol

Mycosynth Golem and Blightsteel Colossus are pricey but would fit.

Flow of Ideas is great card draw in mono-blue. Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep is also a Whelming Wave (although it's a creature and not a good polymorph target), and so is Scourge of Fleets . Volition Reins instead of Lay Claim unless you're super attached to the cycling. Budget options instead of Blightsteel Colossus are Ixidron , Scourge of Fleets , Colossus of Akros , Broodstar , Darksteel Juggernaut or Stormtide Leviathan .

I'd cut Broodstar simply because I don't think it offers much unless you are already set up.
