Efficient Construction


Whenever you cast an artifact spell, create a 1/1 colourless thopter artifact creature token with flying.

I would cut Thopter Spy Network and add Efficient Construction it should create more tokens, maybe 2-3 per turn rather than one on upkeep, also if there is a bird wipe and you have no artifacts Thopter won’t trigger, whereas after a wipe with efficient construction it would help speed up the rebuild of a board state.

I’m working on a build too, if you want to take a look :)

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.

Sram, Senior Edificer provides card advantage, Enchanted Carriage and cards like it that essentially crew themselves, Efficient Construction + cheap artifacts like Sol Ring, Commander's Sphere, etc.

pretendingtoalright I have thought about it but never play tested with her. She has no + ability and her -2 is only mediocre in this deck. I've found that Efficient Construction is better than Saheeli's static ability as planswalkers are a bit more prone to removal/being attacked then enchantments are.

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
