TheVectornaut on Messing with Lore

Sorry I haven't been on to respond in a while. I've been busy with work and haven't been playing much as my LGS still hasn't opened tables up to Magic players. I may not know much about some of these new cards, but I'll still offer some advice on running artifacts in EDH. (Most of my experience is with Sydri, Galvanic Genius in A Pile of Cans so feel free to check that out.) First, I'd try to narrow down to a particular approach to build around. Osgir, the Reconstructor offers a range of options in this regard. Then, you can make swaps for cards that synergize more with that chosen approach.

One option I see is running as many low-cmc artifacts as possible to minimize how much you have to spend on your commander's activated ability. The best bet for this might be the new modular cards. They have small bodies that can be buffed by Osgir after combat and give extra benefits on being killed off themselves. Bonus points if you can afford Arcbound Ravager. Modular is not actually a triggered ETB so you can't get more benefit from Panharmonicon, but I'll touch on that more later. Other options include Bomat Courier, Epochrasite, Gingerbrute, and Sorcerer's Broom. Making lots of token creatures makes a go-wide plan with Steel Overseer, Chief of the Foundry, Signal Pest, and the like more viable. Anything else that produces thopters or servos fits too. Untapping Osgir is probably more mana efficient than copying his ability with this approach.

The exact opposite gameplan is also possible. Run plenty of ramp artifacts like Basalt Monolith, Thran Dynamo, Blinkmoth Urn, and Hedron Archive to play and duplicate overwhelming threats. Darksteel Forge, Soul of New Phyrexia, Platinum Angel, Platinum Emperion, Spine of Ish Sah, Bosh, Iron Golem, Phyrexian Triniform, and Summoning Station are the first options I can think of. Unfortunately, such cards do tend to be less budget friendly. I think it would also be worth distinguishing between a plan using death and entry triggers and one using taps and untaps. The former is where Panharmonicon comes back into play along with Mirrorworks, Prototype Portal, and the refurbish-ers like Goblin Welder. The latter is where Unwinding Clock is king along with its little brothers Clock of Omens, Voltaic Construct, and Voltaic Key. (Both choices can also apply to a more aggressive approach of course.) Here, copying Osgir's ability is likely to be more efficient than untapping him.

Some other artifacts I'm a fan of that are always useful are Mirage Mirror, Kuldotha Forgemaster, and Scourglass. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to get back as soon as I'm able. I apologize in advance if that means a few days.

pangolinwrangler on GW Modular

I've had some fun playtesting this deck. I added Gingerbrute and two cards that help ensure we trigger modular more regularly: 1. Angelic Purge to wipe away anything, and 2. Nature's Claim for a bit of life gain for low investment.

I also toyed with Carapace Forger and Arcbound Stinger over the vanilla 2cmc white modular creature to balance the curve. Travel Preparations is a wonderful inclusion with flashback, too!

Puffer Extract in combination with Gingerbrute could be a total flavor win and a good way to sneak in damage.

Artatras on The Many-Faced God - [Primer]

It's a good inclusion, although I prefer having an extra keyword for one more mana with Invisible Stalker, Gingerbrute and Nether Traitor.

Also playing nonmeta cards is always nice but some cards here are really not great. Curio Vendor is strictly worse than 16 of your creatures. Keeper of the Lens and Gingerbrute probably aren't worth including either.

Flavor of this combo is...delicious.

I think you could build on this by making token copies of Parcel Myr , Mimic , Golden Egg , or Gingerbrute . It might not be right for your deck, maybe somewhere else.

Hi. Nice deck. I'am planning to build also a Zada pEDG deck.

I would run Brass Gnat over Brass Man

Weapon Surge and Dynacharge also work when Zada isn't online.

Some other creature to condsider:

Hahaha. Fantastic. For Lord Farquad, Imperial Recruiter might be a better fit. Just added with Modern Horizons 2, it fits better thematically as it can search your library for Noggle Hedge-Mage (Donkey) or Gingerbrute (Gingy). There's a chance Recruiter's price drops as tons of MH2 is opened, but if it stays high then I wouldn't worry about it unless you have copies around.
