Contraband Kingpin Discussion

You could add cards that you can scry with to bury uncastable things at the top of your library

Mystic Speculation would be a good one since it's repeatable with buyback and adds counters to the bone wand or the reservoir. Or simple straightforward scry card like Crystal Ball

Also, there are various other artifacts to do it with too: Sunset Pyramid, Treasure Map  Flip, Seer's Lantern, and Mazemind Tome.

Or scry with legs like Contraband Kingpin, Sigiled Starfish, and Watchful Automaton.

Finally, there are a couple of Jaces; Jace, Mirror Mage or Jace, Unraveler of Secrets.

Some cards you can cut are cards that lend themselves to strategies different than what you’re trying to do. I mean strategies like going wide, Efficient Construction, or super friends, The Chain Veil, and artifacts matter, Unwinding Clock and Contraband Kingpin. The more backup strategies you have if your main one fails, the less consistent your deck will be. So look at your cards and ask if they are in there because they help your strategy or do some kind of spin off thing. Ornithopter, Raff Capashen, and Sen Triplets are all good cards but for different decks. Those are my thoughts! Hope you can keep thinning it out

Je pense que t'as assez de cartes dans le deck qui profite d'artifacts qui rentre sur le jeu ou qui sont mis dans le graveyard. J'irais pour une synergie encore plus token à cause de cela. Si jamais en plus tu n'es pas sur le Throne, Marchesa pump tout le bord de +1/+1. Ça peut très rapidement dégénéré et tu pourras overwhelm encore plus facilement tes opponents.

En ce qui est de ramp, j'irais avec une liste semblable à ceci:

Sol Ring, Mana Vault, Izzet Signet, Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Arcane Signet, Talisman of Creativity, Talisman of Indulgence, Talisman of Dominance, Wayfarer's Bauble, Chromatic Lantern.

J'inclurais aussi quelques trucs qui ont de la synergie avec le Sacrifice, comme Phyrexian Altar et Phyrexian Tower si t'as le budget.

Sinon, diminuer le coût général des artifacts est toujours winner: Etherium Sculptor, Foundry Inspector.

One thing you could do, if you don't want to flesh out a full 4-5 color manabase, is you could play Ramos, Dragon Engine as your commander. You can build the deck Grixis, and just splash for Smothering Tithe and Vraska, Relic Seeker . The nice thing about Treasure and Gold being your theme is you don't need to play any rocks or lands in white or green to splash. Ramos is even an artifact, in case you want to run an artifact theme with stuff like Contraband Kingpin , Daretti, Scrap Savant , Gonti's Aether Heart , etc.

For the good cards ... I'm not a regular Sydri pilot, but here's a penny for my thoughts on this fun commander. Tamiyo's Journal is a good beater that plops out artifacts/draw. Faerie Artisans / Thoughtcast / Thirst for Knowledge are really good for this deck, Dispatch / Stoic Rebuttal is always good for redundancy. March of the Machines is good in case your commander gets tree'd or stolen . Mechanized Production might be good for Phyrexian Metamorph / Master of Etherium /tokens from Sharding Sphinx / Smothering Tithe etc.

For the weaker cards ... Planar Cleansing could be replaced with Hour of Revelation . Profane Procession  Flip/ Predator, Flagship could go because of its overall cost, and it doesn't do anything else over time or when it enters, and it doesn't fit the themes of the deck. Revel in Riches might be good with the amount of board wipes but you'll be targeted for it, it's an upkeep trigger (so people will have time to respond, and with sorceries). Treasure Map  Flip is rather weak because it turns into a land so you can't abuse it like an artifact, and is 5 mana to eventually draw 3 or maybe 3+ cards. Treasure Mage does 'draw' and the best big artifact to abuse, but it's overall 9 mana unless you have Master Transmuter or something, and doesn't get any wincon that I can see. Ruthless Knave takes a lot of hoops to get through to draw or ramp, but a lot of my criticisms were at the treasure cards so you keep that theme then drawing more cards for no mana is good. Palladium Myr is not ramp, it's just sadness. Sphinx of the Steel Wind is expensive for a 7 turn clock on turn seven, but it's fun because it could fit your meta and is protected from the colors outside your color pie.

For win cons ... Aetherflux Reservoir / Staff of Nin / Caltrops are all all-star with this commander, and Tezzeret the Seeker could fetch caltrops/aetherflux but non paradox engine etc. If you're interested in a combo win, you could do Sword of the Meek / Thopter Foundry , or Sharuum the Hegemon / Phyrexian Metamorph and something to abuse the etb loop like Altar of the Brood / Genesis Chamber / Contraband Kingpin / Disciple of the Vault / Blood Artist / Marionette Master etc.
