ClockworkSwordfish on Extra Turns... But not for me!

4 months ago

I'm glad there were some helpful suggestions in there!

For the record, if you were curious about the Lethal Vapors route, it's trivially easy to skip infinite turns so long as you pair it with Grand Abolisher, City of Solitude or an instant-speed sacrifice outlet like Claws of Gix. I built a similar deck a number of years ago; you can see it here: Sir Not-Appearing-In-This-Game

Feels like a Goblin Bombardment is a good choice here. Phyrexian Altar if you are not worried about budget. Blasting Station, Trading Post, Spawning Pit, Altar of Dementia, Claws of Gix, Shivan Harvest, Thermopod for some other 'janky' options. Hope this helps :)

Claws of Gix are not expensive, but I would like to see them reprinted in the new card frame.

haha! A commander that im super interested in and actually have some card suggestions =D have you considered Claws of Gix for those times curses fall off or are removed from other players but you really dont want them attached to you for too long. Also Vedalken Orrery and/or Leyline of Anticipation so you can flash in some of your curses and attach them to yourself at the end of your opponents turn right before yours so you can benefit from the card draw effect at the start of your turn if your commander is in play. Otherwise pretty sweet looking deck I wasnt sure how to go about building mine and have just been slowly gathering cards that I thought looked good until I did.

I just saw this post cPute so sorry for the late reply!

At the moment I am unsure on how else other than Slash the Ranks we would self-sacrifice the Academy Rector but if you have any ideas I am certainly open to them.

I love the suggestions and I am looking for space to add them now, the only issue with Back to Basics is it really affects my deck as I run minimum basic lands. If you are running a deck that can suit it more by all means make your opponents cry (then tell me all about it mwahaha).

What I am considering is adding in High Market , Diamond Valley and Smokestack as these cards still synergise with our plan to pace, pretend to make political friends (for those who play politics - who would hurt a bunny) and also stax stax stax!

Honourable mentions to Claws of Gix and Martyr's Cause as it would protect Kwain.

sweet deck!!! this looks like a blast to play!!!
here are some quick thoughts...
Basalt Monolith seems like a shoe-in and you already run rings of brighthearth so it goes infinite.
Sensei's Divining Top is expensive, but if you can afford it, it's great with your commander and when you have rings + basalt, you can draw your whole deck.
given your artifact theme, Unwinding Clock seems great, like it would go great with staff of domination and empowered autogenerator which you already run. Blinkmoth Urn is another option for more mana generation, im not a huge fan of it b/c it can help your opponent too, but some people like it.
you might consider Artificer's Intuition , early game you can discard your high CMC artifacts to get useful things like sol ring and your artifact lands. you could even get Expedition Map to get Academy Ruins , and then you can get your artifacts back from your graveyard.
another thought, i would not run endless atlas in a 3-color deck. generally there is a low chance you get 3 basics of any one type, so most likely this will be a dead draw. I would consider a draw engine like Monastery Siege or Outpost Siege to generate card advantage.
also i don't know if you want another combo, but if you get 2 of your artifact cost-reducers out, then if you get both Junk Diver and Myr Retriever they go infinite if you have a sac outlet like Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar . it's kind of fiddly b/c there are so many pieces, but it's something to think about if you want to run or not.
finally, sometime syou want a way to sac your artifacts, like both your wellsprings. Daretti, Scrap Savant is a powerhouse in artifact decks, to recur your important artifacts and sac the ones you don't need. if you are looking for a low cmc sac outlet, i am a big fan of Claws of Gix .
anyway those are just some thoughts! i know you won't like all of them but hopefully at least a couple are useful to you. cheers and have fun, good luck with the deck!

Since you're on Claws of Gix to presumably get draw triggers by saccing lands, have you thought about Infernal Tribute?
