AhabDownUnder - this was a brew for another user and hasn't been tweaked in a long time. Also, that's a bad rate for a haste enabler - though I will always encourage play testing and adding in your own spyce. Crashing Drawbridge and Torch Courier are objectively better. At it's core this is just a beats deck with a high density of multi-color cards to give our commander that juicy buff and donk in for the win.

Yeah you bet kasprl, happy to help. Really like the idea of using Hammer of Purphoros as a haste enabler. Definitely overlooked that one in my own build. Might even swap it for Crashing Drawbridge at some point. Thanks for the idea. Cheers.

Hello there,

Big thanks for the comment / upvote on Full Metal Alchemy, and listing it in your own deck description. Very much appreciated!

I really like the Myr Retriever + Workshop Assistant + Krark-Clan Ironworks + Ugin, the Ineffable / Foundry Inspector / Cloud Key line. You could also add Quicksmith Genius to this to draw / discard your whole deck.

I see your running Steel Hellkite which can be an awesome infinite mana sync. If you have the budget for it Walking Ballista can also be an awesome mana sync and ultimately win you the game. Aurelia's Fury could be a more budget friendly way to close out games too if you have access to infinite mana.

Your land count seems good (I run 33 lands with Valakut Awakening  Flip as an optional 34th). I personally wouldn't go lower than that because missing land drops can be pretty detrimental. I would probably swap all the tap lands for ones that have the ability to come into play untapped when the conditions are met. Clifftop Retreat / Furycalm Snarl / Needleverge Pathway  Flip / Rugged Prairie / Spectator Seating are a few I'd recommend if you have the budget for them.

Your ramp package seems solid, but if you feel like it's too much maybe add some more card draw? Or a few more "heavy hitters"?

If you're using the "heavy hitters" to win via combat damage you might consider adding a few more cards to give them haste. Hanweir Battlements  Flip / Crashing Drawbridge .

Anyway, just some random thoughts and suggestions. Cheers.

Alright, colorless on a budget. Here we go.

The lands are fine. Looks like basic Wastes really need a reprint.

I'm counting 19 mana artifacts. If I cut those above a mana value of 3, that's still 16. Plus a few big mana Edlrazis on top. Mana-wise you definitely won't have issues, though we can optimize the selection a little. Manakin and Foundry Inspector have priority over Kozilek's Channeler, Walking Atlas and Warden of Geometries. Sisay's Ring is a second copy of Ur-Golem's Eye.

You have Myr Retriever and artifact synergy cards in there. Consider adding Scrap Trawler too. If you want to get infinite mana, Spawning Pit and Thermal Navigator can make it possible. Might cause some salt on casual tables though. Workshop Assistant is pretty much the same card as Junk Diver and fits in there as well.

Cards that I would cut are: Kozilek's Pathfinder, Ulamog's Despoiler, Ruin Processor, Desolation Twin, Deathless Behemoth

Fun budget cards to consider: Nevinyrral's Disk , Mimic Vat , Duplicant , Transmogrifying Wand , Chaos Wand , Tormod's Crypt or Scrabbling Claws , Sunset Pyramid , Darksteel Pendant , Ichor Wellspring , Shimmer Myr , Crashing Drawbridge .

Aside from those, I imagine this deck wants Mind's Eye a lot, but it's not a cheap card.

The creatures that are affected by Crashing Drawbridge are determined when the ability resolves. Any creature that enters the battlefield at a later time will not be granted haste. Because cards become new game objects when they move zones Canopy Tactician will no longer have haste after you blink it.

So I'm trying to figure out if Crashing Drawbridge 's tap ability only affects the creaturs that are on the battlefield at the time it was tapped or if it affects all creaturs you control that were just summoned after you have tapped it.

So here is an example of what I'm thinking. Emiel the Blessed , Canopy Tactician and Crashing Drawbridge are on the battlefield. I tap Crashing Drawbridge and canopy tactician then us the three mana to activate Emiel's blink ability on canopy and be able to infinitely keep tapping canopy because the Drawbridge was tapped once or does it not because canopy is considered a new permanent and doesn't have the hast affect anymore?

Hahaha raspberryfish25 now you mention it, it does sound funny :-). If answers are needed in your meta these are definitely good choices, the Golgari colors have lots of answers to play in the form of targeted and mass removal. Abrupt Decay could also be included. Eyeblight Massacre could also get rid of tokens, without harming your own board state. Lys Alana Scarblade in combination with untap abilities could also perform well to get rid of pesky creatures. You can always recur the discarded creatures with several black cards out there, though not really my style of play. Cover of Darkness is sitting in my binder, trying it out, great evasive tech. Genesis Wave , now that is a digger I do like, definitely agree with you on that one.

As for the cards you are willing to try, they are indeed very strong, but strong comes with a price tag, if budget isn't an issue definitely worth upgrading.

Chord of Calling budget one-time use Zenith, Crashing Drawbridge cheaper crossroads, although usable the next turn, but only haste on your side of the board. Fauna Shaman is already the budget version of Survival of the Fittest , but Evolutionary Leap is the cheapest closest card with more or less the same effect. Song of the Dryads combo sounds like a lot of fun indeed. With enough counters on Champion of Lambholt you can achieve the same for the price of a bag of crisps. Seeker of Skybreak is a great "untapper", maybe you like Quirion Ranger and Scryb Ranger too.

Time Spiral remastered comes with a few nice reprints like Slaughter Pact , Summoner's Pact , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Damnation . Still on the steep side, price-wise, but way cheaper than the currently printed versions.
