Hey kuromadei, thanks for the comment and upvote, much appreciated.

Thanks for pointing out that Bronze Guardian 's ward ability does in fact stack. I actually just recently watched an episode of the command zone podcast where they point this out, and was going to update the primer today. Makes the card quite a bit better than I originally thought it'd be in the deck.

For your question about more than two copies: Anointed Procession will trigger anytime we create a token, which includes Osgir, the Reconstructor 's second ability. Illusionist's Bracers will trigger much in the same way when it's equipped to Osgir, and Rings of Brighthearth will allow us to pay to copy Osgir's second ability. Basically all these interactions will allow us to copy / double Osgir's second ability creating four token copies of whatever we're targeting. We can then increase the amount of tokens created by having multiples of Illusionist's Bracers / Rings of Brighthearth or adding Mirage Mirror .

For your question about the jank combos: I actually just discovered a new combo line while taking a second look at the janky ones, so HUGE thanks to you for helping me discover this line!! I'll be adding it to the primer shortly...

Eldrazi Displacer + Krark-Clan Ironworks + Myr Battlesphere + Goblin Engineer . Sacrifice all four myr tokens to Krark-Clan Ironworks generating 8 mana. Then use that mana to activate Eldrazi Displacer blinking Myr Battlesphere / Goblin Engineer . This will tutor an artifact to the graveyard and generate another four myr tokens. We can then repeat this an infinite amount of times generating infinite mana and tutoring every artifact to our graveyard.

Here's where the JANK comes in...

Once all of our artifacts are in the graveyard, and we have infinite mana, we can then use Umbral Mantle to continuously untap Osgir, the Reconstructor activating his second ability an infinite amount of times to reconstruct every artifact in the graveyard. We can then add Quicksmith Genius to the line to draw / discard the entire deck or Reckless Fireweaver to deal an infinite amount of damage to all our opponents.

Another janky line to tutor every artifact to the battlefield, draw / discard the whole deck, or deal infinite damage to our opponents:

Krark-Clan Ironworks + Myr Battlesphere + Anointed Procession + Goblin Welder + Kuldotha Forgemaster + 2x Umbral Mantle . (This will require Kuldotha Forgemaster / Goblin Welder to both be equipped with a copy of Umbral Mantle . Myr Battlesphere entering the battlefield will trigger Anointed Procession creating 8 myr tokens. Sac three of them to Krark-Clan Ironworks to generate 6 mana. Then sac 2 more and Myr Battlesphere to Kuldotha Forgemaster to tutor an artifact to the battlefield. Use the 6 mana we still have floating to activate the umbral mantles equipped to Kuldotha Forgemaster / Goblin Welder untapping them both. Then sac one more myr token to Goblin Welder to get the Myr Battlesphere back out of the graveyard. When Myr Battlesphere re-enters the battlefield this will re-start the loop. Repeat as many times as necessary to tutor every artifact to the graveyard. There a few different ways to start this loop which just include different ways of getting the ETB trigger from Myr Battlesphere , but you'll have to forgive me for not diving deeeper into that. Again we can also add Quicksmith Genius to the line to draw / discard the entire deck or Reckless Fireweaver to deal an infinite amount of damage to all our opponents.

The above combo will also work if we swap Wurmcoil Engine or Triplicate Titan for Myr Battlesphere .

Thanks again for encouraging me to take a second look at the combo lines, and the comment / upvote! Hope this helps! Cheers!

GregariousG on Gonna Need A Bigger Playmat | *Primer*

To BloodDragon,

Thanks for stopping by my hot mesh of cards I like to call Naya Tron. I really appreciate when other players ask me in-depth questions about my deck. It makes me evaluate what I’m trying to do. In the midst of answering your questions, I found some flaws that I feel like I was able to correct.

How many Tokens/Treasures do you find you are actually getting it to play? In games are you actually closing it out with a Tall-Commanders, or just going wide with Thopters and Golems? Some combination of Tall-Golems thanks to Ich-T? Or are you closing games out more combo-style with the mentioned R.Fireweaver, Terror of the Peaks, or Alibou?

I am finding that I can produce a moderate amount of token. However, this deck is called “Gonna Need a Bigger Playmat”, not “This Can All Fit Just Fine on the Playmat.” I've been debating with myself if I need three token doublers. I think that answer might be no. Because of that, I added Servo Schematic to the main deck. This creates precious artifact creature tokens on ETB, LTB, and is an artifact itself. I thought about adding Pia Nalaar or Pia and Kiran Nalaar for the Thopter tokens. However, I wanted something that was loopable with things like Daretti or Goblin Welder . Tangent aside, this deck, generally, closes out the game with a combination of burning out the table and applied pressure with tokens. There is a line where Ich-T and all the golems get infinite +1/+1 counters, but I haven’t put that to use yet. Also, Chandra, Torch of Defiance is another burn outlet and gets ultimated more often than you think.

I feel like I am not understanding all the Pop-rocks you have (Lotus Petal, Chromatic Sphere, Etc) are you managing to get Teshar/Osgir consistently? Does this deck go in for the kill extremely fast? Or am I missing the point all together here?

This deck isn't a fast kill deck. It has more infinite combos than intended, but this build is meant for the mid-game. Like in Modern Tron, I want my mid-game much faster than everyone else at the table. For example, I've gone Ancient Tomb into Mana Vault , played Lotus Petal , then played Hour of Promise . Now, this was the absolute nut draw, but that was capable due to fast mana like Lotus Petal . The pop-rocks are like artifact-based cantrips. I can't count the numerous times I've played Ancient Stirrings off of a Tron land due to Chromatic Star or Chromatic Sphere .

For me, Teshar and Osgir play different roles. Teshar is more for recurring my low CMC creatures during the grindy mid-late game. With Teshar, I want to loop cards like Goblin Engineer and Blade Splicer for value. The exception to this rule is if I have a way to sacrifice or put Dockside Extortionist in the graveyard. If I have that setup, I'm going for that line of play immediately. Osgir, on the other hand, is more for explosive lines of play. This could be ramping hard with multiple Mana Vault s for Sol Ring s. For me, the synergy between the artifact lands and Osgir is too good to pass up, even without a token doubler. Though I save the bombs of this deck for Feldon of the Third Path , there are times when exiling them with Osgir is an option. For example, I don't need Wurmcoil Engine or Verdurous Gearhulk if I'm Feldon looping Triplicate Titan . I've gladly sac those options to get two token copies of those beaters. If Alibou, Ancient Witness is on the field, I'm more inclined to go for this option.

And between all the Land/Urza synergies you seem to be aiming for did Tireless Tracker or Crucible of Worlds end up not performing well? Have you considered Wrenn and Six for land recursion?

At one point, I consider using both Tireless Tracker and Crucible of Worlds in the 99. However, they both didn't make the cut for one core reason. This deck, besides Hour of Promise and Sad Robot, makes one land drop per turn. Thus, making one clue token per turn is ok, but there are better things I can be doing at three mana. As for Crucible, Eternal Witness is my answer if I need lands back.

Thank you for the suggestions! I like Goblin Engineer and Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast . They would fit perfectly in the deck! I'll find some cuts to make for them! Thank you!

Ooo, making suggestions for budget decks is always a fun time!

I'd recommend Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast for his -2, since you can exile a large creature you cheated out for a permanent copy of a LARGER creature! He's only $3 or so, as well. Besmirch is a great variant/improvement on Threaten , and currently Magus of the Moon is super cheap due to Time Spiral Remastered... Goblin Engineer could be a good way to fetch Sundial of the Infinite , perhaps?

Hope this helps! :)

ldjosh I only run two cards Walking Ballista / Daretti, Scrap Savant that would benefit from the proliferate mechanic, which in my mind, doesn't really warrant including Throne of Geth . Currently running Goblin Engineer / Goblin Welder / Krark-Clan Ironworks / Kuldotha Forgemaster / Osgir, the Reconstructor for sac outlets, which all provide better value and synergize really well with the overall theme of the deck. Thanks for the suggestion though, much appreciated. Cheers.

For artifact recursion, Trash for Treasure is a useful one for cheating out big artifacts from the graveyard, and is a flavor win as you can literally trade your treasure tokens in for trash... err... your other artifacts XD Also, Goblin Welder is another classic one that can do the same thing. Trading Post is another flexible option, as I can see your deck being able to use most of the options. Though, I'll admit, I usually use these cards to cheat into play big artifact creatures that I've dumped into the graveyard, so you might want to consider this as a side option.

In terms of red artifact tutors, it's a little dicy, as most of the decent options use either blue or black. Inventors' Fair could work once you get all the needed artifacts on board. Some creature options also exist (if you're just looking to make a weird "illegal" fun deck.) Treasure Mage Trophy Mage Tribute Mage and Trinket Mage can fetch out needed artifacts, as well as having limited synergy with Alesha, Who Smiles at Death . Though looking at your current list, I don't see too many bomb cards that would be useful with recuring your artifacts. Maybe look into adding something like Solemn Simulacrum or Golos, Tireless Pilgrim ? In red you have things like Gamble , Hoarding Dragon and Goblin Engineer .

Hmmm... Sliver decks, while fun to pilot, either are dealt with early and fizzle out, or they end up overwhelming if you don't keep their creatures in check. If you're leaning more into the 5 color splashability casual deck, Rakdos Charm is a good catch-all card that deals with a lot of strategies. Even a well timed Blasphemous Act can slow them down. In your current build, I see you do run some interaction, but I think you'll find there are some more consistent better options out there!

Some artifacts in monored, that can be reasonably tutored with Goblin Engineer :

Liquimetal Coating : Combine with artifact removal, maybe Viashino Heretic , Goblin Tinkerer , Hellkite Tyrant and so on

Chaos Wand : let fate decide

Mycosynth Lattice : it's Liquimetal Coating Maxi

FormOverFunction I believe I saw adding Artificer's Hex to Bloodthirsty Blade , which is hilarious :D
