Coveted Jewel Discussion
6 days ago
Hey, thanks for the additional info.
For causal upgrades my advice is add cards that give you repeatable value; either draw, artifact tokens or pump for tokens. Cards in the original precon to consider adding:
- Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer could replace Temple of the False God.
- Loyal Apprentice could replace Catalog.
Other changes to consider:
- Treasure Mage could replace Broken Concentration.
- Bident of Thassa could replace Coveted Jewel.
- Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain could replace Darksteel Juggernaut.
- The Antiquities War could replace Dreamstone Hedron.
- Steel Overseer could replace Sin Prodder.
- Saheeli, Sublime Artificer could replace Colossus of Akros.
- Everflowing Chalice could replace Worn Powerstone.
- Stoic Rebuttal could replace Silumgar's Scorn.
- Spire of Industry could replace Highland Lake.
- Comet Storm could replace Volcanic Geyser.
Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer is a strong casual card with artifacts. It creates a Myr at your combat step then all token creatures you control can become any token creature you control. You can make all Thopters/Servos into Myrs for a huge Myr Battlesphere attack or make all Myrs/Servos into Thopters for a big flying army attack with Sharding Sphinx to double your army after combat damage.
Temple of the False God is not a good land for your deck because you can't tap it to make mana until your fifth turn at the earliest. It's not worth playing because of this and honestly it's not worth playing in any deck, but that's another discussion.
Sin Prodder can be repeatable draw, but more times than not an opponent will take the damage and have you put the card into your graveyard which is not helping you. Steel Overseer has great interaction with artifact tokens especially Thopters. It also has good interaction with Unwinding Clock letting you on everyone's turn put a counter on all your artifact tokens.
For control you've added three very good counterspells (Counterspell, Swan Song and Negate). Broken Concentration and Silumgar's Scorn don't compare to these other counterspells, that's why you should consider cutting them. Stoic Rebuttal because of the artifact theme activating metalcraft is good enough to add. Instead of more control, focus on your artifact game plan with Saheeli?

WarSpaniel no problem.
Coveted Jewel would be given to the player to your right with Inniaz, and then after blockers are declared, coveted jewel triggers if one of your creatures attacking that player is unblocked. That brings it back to you, untaps it, and you draw 3 cards. Jewel's trigger checks only whether there is an unblocked creature after blockers are declared.
Hope this helps.

I thought a lot about adding cards like Prime Speaker Vannifar, but i don't really want to have sorcery speed cards in my deck, as they are only useful for finding the combos and don't really do anything else.
I already thought about Thassa's Oracle, but i am not sure yet whether i want to play Consultation. I know it is powerful, but i dislike cards i cannot use that much outside their combo. If i have enough cyclers (as i want to have a small ETB package + a lot of cyclers) Coveted Jewel can be a janky combo if combined with Escape Protocol to draw my library, but the Yisan-Line with Spellseeker is tempting.
For the other suggestions, i absolutely love Galvanic Alchemist! Haven't even heard of that card, but it is pretty awesome. I don't know which cards i will use in the end to combo with it, in the moment, i lean towards something janky like Oasis Ritualist, but i'm not sure about that yet. The advantage would be i don't have to rely on elves that much. The only problem i see at all using this combo is the need for Biomancer's Familiar to work, but if i include Training Grounds for a little redundancy i might like it.
I also thought about cards like Freed from the Real if i play enough 2-mana-producers, or a combo like Devoted Druid + One with the Stars, but without good creature tutors for enchantments or access to white those aren't as consistent as i would like them to be.

I think your friends would hate you if you actually built cEDH. If they are, as you say, "arms race" players, then cEDH would blow them out of the water before they can even start the game.
While Battlecruiser Magic is fun for many, it is not and will never be competitive. That said, Thantis is freaking awesome for Battlecruiser/Arms Race because
a) It's got a really neat effect
b) It forces Battlecruiser games to go faster by forcing combat. While you run the risk of being the archenemy, you should really have built your list around that anyways.
c) It's a value commander. That is the sort of thing that dominates Battlecruiser.
What you really want are cards like Coveted Jewel to make the main 'Archenemy' go around the table. Oh, and Assault Suit. Give everybody the use of Thantis... but not against you. So you can say, 'hey, throw that token at Thantis to buff him and I'll let you use Thantis on your turn'.

Great deck definitley a +1 from me! May I suggest Coveted Jewel, it makes for a great political tool and provides great ramp.

Thoughts on these? Silence, Archaeomancer, Savor the Moment, Plea for Power, Lich's Mirror, Tidal Barracuda, Vampiric Tutor, Lotus Petal, Vanishment, Cloud of Faeries, Decree of Silence, Coveted Jewel, Oubliette (see double masters errata; can now phase out opp's general indefinitely), Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, God-Pharaoh's Statue, Mandate of Peace (ask during opps' upkeep for them to let you know when they are going to combat. They will likely go straight to combat before casting things, allowing you to play this most effectively)

I like the idea, but I feel like you don't have enough sacrifice outlets to benefit as effectively from Font of Mythos and Coveted Jewel. I'd recommend cards like Arcbound Ravager, Metalwork Colossus, Sage of Lat-Nam, and Sai, Master Thopterist to get some instant speed sacrifice mechanics so that you can remove those when you want to before an opponent would benefit from. I also think the more expensive cards here are a bit overkill compared to the rest of the deck, it could be a lot more budget friendly if you pulled Force of Will, Chrome Mox, manacrypt, Ancient Tomb, and Metalworker. That would drop the overall cost by about 300 and wouldn't sacrifice much for efficiency. Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power (which is expensive, but not more than extraplanar lens) as well as Gilded Lotus, Nyx Lotus, and Blinkmoth Urn can make up for the loss of the mana generation by removing those more expensive cards. I'd also recommend some board wipe cards like Oblivion Stone and Nevinyrral's Disk to accomodate when the board state is getting hectic.

instead of the combat tricks you should put in card advantage
Arcane Encyclopedia, Book of Rass, Coveted Jewel, Inheritance, Orazca Relic, Loreseeker's Stone, Rogue's Gloves, Seer's Sundial holy shit there's no card draw in white. Also put in Shefet Dunes for the meme.
