Romer on Flipping the Odds - A Coin Flip Story

Seeing how huge an advantage Krark's Thumb is, I was thinking about cards that will help you have it more often. You may not want all these but just thinking out loud...

Tutor it out of your library:

  • Fabricate, probably the best
  • Tribute Mage, also the best
  • Reshape, drawback: you have to sacrifice an artifact (probably a mana rock)
  • Inventors' Fair could work if you have enough other artifacts in the deck
  • Goblin Engineer can tutor it to your graveyard, then bring it back to the battlefield. It's a few hoops to jump through but also an option to bring it back from the graveyard if someone's destroyed it.

Get it back from the graveyard:

TheVectornaut no worries about timing. There's no rush to build a good deck. I'm just glad to hear from you. Based on your descriptions I think the second option is where I want to go with this deck, but with some added self-mill so I can really build up options for osgir quickly. Here are some cards that are on the way that I am most likely going to add soon: Phyrexian Triniform (big creature that may work better than triplicate titan), Rings of Brighthearth (4 tokens instead of two with osgir), Blinkmoth Urn(big mana), Goblin Engineer (sac and tutor in one), Zirda, the Dawnwaker(more mana help) and Leonin Abunas (protection). I also am pretty sure I will get Coveted Jewel, Basalt Monolith, Jhoira's Familiar (mana help), Grinning Totem, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Oswald Fiddlebender (tutors), Urza's Bauble (draw). I think if I get these and drop the ones in the sideboard section the deck would have increased mana efficiency, more tutors, and overall just stronger. The last piece I think would be a Mesmeric Orb, Grinding Station, or Keening Stone to fill up faster because the current GY fill cards are just lacking. Let me know if you think these are good choices out of the maybe board to snag. Ill try to playtest the deck a bit more online to see as well. Thanks!

multimedia on Osgir artifacts

Hey, nice upgrades so far.

Since you added Basalt Monolith and Rings of Brighthearth consider also adding Staff of Domination? Staff is an outlet with infinite colorless mana to draw and cast artifacts, repeatable sac and exile them with Osgir. Staff with infinite mana lets you repeatedly tap and untap Osgir. Goblin Engineer can tutor for any one of these combo artifacts, get it into your graveyard to reanimate by sacing any other artifact or exile it with Osgir.

Oswald Fiddlebender is a repeatable artifact tutor from Adventures of the Forgotten Realms who also gets artifacts into your graveyard to exile with Osgir. Lotus Bloom and Sol Talisman are mana rocks that have suspend, but they're CMC is 0. When they're in your graveyard they cost zero mana to exile with Osgir. You have cards here that make you discard and these are artifacts you want to discard. Boros Signet and Talisman of Conviction are more two drop Boros mana rocks.

Some changes to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Goblin Engineer is interesting. I remember seeing a UW Urza, Lord High Artificer deck that used Vial and Oswald Fiddlebender to help assemble the Thopter Foundry/Sword of the Meek combo; maybe a Jeskai Urza deck with Oswald and Engineer could be in the cards somewhere?

I don't think I'd play Charming Prince over another card in the main here. The deck only runs 9 creatures that get any value at all from flickering, and of those Ranger-Captain of Eos is the only one without severely diminishing returns. For example, you only need Stoneforge Mystic's etb to resolve once to get your most powerful equipment, Kaldra Compleat; the second Stoneforge gets Nettlecyst which is okay, but after that flickering it isn't very good. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

I've been testing something similar with Goblin Engineer - swapping vial or food for a threat in the yard is really good, and with the number of 'etb search to hand' effects in the list, Charming Prince starts looking like an all star.

This list feels close, but the lack of artifact sacrifice is a little awkward. If I'm going at a slower pace I kind of want Goblin Engineer to set up emry interactions with artifact tokens, or to try and become full blown Inkwell Leviathan/Sundering Titan reanimator.

If I were to tweak the list as little as possible, I think I'd just jam in Arcbound Ravager + Zabaz, the Glimmerwasp + Power Depot and call it a day. Lands, spent shriekhorns etc becoming counters on a creature is just too good to pass up.

I actually took the deck apart a while ago to run the Myr Retriever combo variant (which got a lot of support in Goblin Engineer ). If I wanted to build it again, I'd update the creature choices a lot - likely running blue for Glasspool Mimic  Flip.
