Done it: 5 card combo
5 days ago
Myr etb's and creates handy sacrifice tokens you can use to recur the monkey cage. You can sac the myr and recur it to get both more myr and monkeys each time.
The cage is superfluous in this combo since you could use any other artifact as a part of it, but it would work and be amusing.

paytongamer: I'm not sure what it happening with Wizard, but I just looked at the 6 month price history of every card in the deck, and Goblin Welder has seen the biggest increase. Most of the deck has increased in price an uncomfortable amount. Most of the cards aren't even underprinted, a lot of the ones that have drastically increased in price have been printed several times over and in mass production sets. Unfortunately it looks like the mass buyouts of Magic cards is starting to have a more severe impact on all cards. This deck was under $1000 to build just a year ago, and a good amount under $800 if you skipped the fetches. I hope the market corrects itself over time because this it is going to be hard or impossible for a lot of people to build decks that they enjoy that just so happen to have cards that were randomly targeted for buyouts.
CommanderNeyo: I've had Goblin Engineer in the deck in the past, but it ended up not working that well for that version of the deck because I had a hard time guaranteeing that I would have an artifact on the battlefield to swap the GY artifact for. I think to run it again I would want to be in the 20-25+ artifact range, more mana rocks because they play so well with saccing land, Daretti could come back in, bring in things like Trash for Treasure , etc... It's definitely a viable strategy that I will probably end up trying again at some point. One of the reasons this is my favorite deck is it is so flexible when it comes to picking what kind of playstyle you want whether it be token spam, combo, infinites, ETB triggers, combat step manipulation, artifact shenanigans, MLDestruction instead of MLDysfunction, and more, or a mix of all of them!
ObserverWill: Thanks Will! That really means a lot. If you end up trying it out let us know your thoughts or ideas!

I love Valduk, he's one of the most consistent mono-red commanders for me performance-wise.
You should check out some of the quirky interactions you can do with Valduk I've got going on in my deck: The Duke's Fortress

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

You’re lucky then. Never pair it with a Goblin Welder in another deck or they might change their minds :-)

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.
