Foundry Inspector

Artifact Creature — Construct

Artifact spells you cast cost less to cast.

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.

Edits: Out- Foundry Inspector In- Enthusiastic Mechanaut

(3 mana tends to be higher in the curve than I want this effect to be (Cloud Key withstanding), Enthusiastic Mechanaut just fits my optimal curve better)

Out- Mirran Spy , Nettle Drone , Retraction Helix , Banishing Knack In- 2x islands 2x mountains

(needed a slightly larger mana base, and these combos are nice but with summoning sickness, 2 turns takes too long to be efficient

Did you purposely put in code for the description? That's just a really cool idea I had to point out in an artifact deck. Maybe add in Foundry Inspector to reduce artifact casing cost.

Hey, well done list so far on a low budget. Elsha with Vehicles is an interesting choice.

Some advice to get started on revision/optimization is to streamline creatures and lands to make Elsha better. Consider reducing the creature count down to 10 of the best creatures here for Vehicles strategy and/or crewing? (ordered by CMC)

The less creatures the better for Elsha. Cut most creatures for lands and ramp? Elsha doesn't work with lands thus having less can also make Elsha better. Consider 32 lands with many budget low mana cost mana rocks to replace some lands?

To help with deck building add all the lands you want to play, even just basic lands, to see how many spots are left to fill or how many cards you need to cut to add more lands. Some budget lands to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

Some recently released commanders that are extremely powerful, even in budget decks, that I would recommend would be -

Three color :

Isshin, Two Heavens as One, Miirym, Sentinel Wurm, Muldrotha, the Gravetide (recently reprinted) and Alela, Artful Provacateur

Two color :

Lathril, Blade of the Elves, Sythis, Harvest's Hand and Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait

Most of these could easily be powerful even on a low budget. Most of them are also pretty easy to follow for newer players. Isshin cares about cards that have "Whenever ~ attacks" triggers, Miirym cares about anything relating to dragons, Muldrotha loves graveyard shenanigans and Alela cares about artifacts, enchantments and faeries. Lathril is all about elves and tokens, Sythis is enchantment focused and Aesi is lands-centric (and is available as a precon!).

It all really comes down what type of playstyle you enjoy. Given what you have, I think I'd recommend Alela, Artful Provacateur. You have some cards from your precons already, is in perfect colors for disruption/interaction with opponents and she could be built in literally any way that has enchantments and/or artifacts as a focus. Auras such as All That Glitters and Ethereal Armor? Sure! Anthems such as Favorable Winds or Glorious Anthem? Yep! Artifact-centric cards such as Sai, Master Thopterist, Etherium Sculptor, Foundry Inspector and Bident of Thassa can make your board state explode from one turn to the next. I had an Alela deck for my brother for a bit that focused on playing cheap artifacts/enchantments and then buffing the tokens with cards like Favorable Winds. With a few effects like that on the field, casting a single artifact/enchantment could net you something like a 7/6 flier, which is insane! She could very easily be built on a budget as well.

Again, it all depends on your playstyle. If you could specify your favorite colors/strategies it would help us recommend you something that you would find more fun!

Hi Macaronigrill5150,thanks for your comment! Trophy Mage search only an artifact with 3 mana value,in my deck only search Foundry Inspector and Skeleton Shard. Etherium Sculptor it's a little bit over budget but can be used to upgrade the deck. Vizier of Tumbling Sands it's a great card but in this deck only tap Merchant's Dockhand and Skeleton Shard,i will evaluate it,put in the maybeboard. Thanks for the contribution ^^

I think that Trophy Mage could be a good addition she is on the more costly side at .39 since you want to stick with .30 and under, but you get that search for an artifact that is 3 or less, value from it, another card would be Etherium Sculptor very similar to Foundry Inspector, but just a tad cheaper. Then there is Vizier of Tumbling Sands good for untapping, artifacts, and if needed to draw a card
