Grinding Station


Tap, Sacrifice an artifact: Target player puts the top three cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard.

Whenever an artifact enters the battlefield, you may untap Grinding Station.

Irenicus's Vile Duplication, Mirror Box and Vesuvan Duplimancy could allow you to copy your commander, and with an infinite artifact sacrifice machine like Arcbound Ravager, Grinding Station, or the like, you could easily go infinite. Plus, these cards fit decently into your gameplan.

I'd probably cut Trail of Evidence, since you only have seven instants/sorceries.

I'm still not following - Chromatic Star is the only one of your artifacts that gives you anything when sac'd to Grinding Station - the rest will only give you anything when you sac them to their own abilities. To that end, even if you have some extra mana granted from Lotus Bloom, you're not going to have enough to mill your opponent out of cards.

Because only Chromatic Star gives you any card draw when sac'd to Grinding Station you're going to run out of cards really fast also. I get that Faith's Reward can give you a bunch of artifacts all in one turn, but not in a way that's easily repeatable or practical.

I assume the loop revolves entirely around having at least two Lotus Bloom in the graveyard/play so that Faith's Reward gains you mana? Even then your deck is highly reliant on drawing those cards, and you need to be suer-lucky to draw enough Faith's Reward to get anywhere.

I've tried goldfishing a bunch of hands and yet to see anything close to a win on turn 4 - but perhaps i'm missing some key component to this.

draftdump69 thanks for the suggestions! I watched YungDingo on youtube pilot the rona/goryo's vengeance deck; seemed deece. The deck where it is now, fairly budget constraint-wise; I've only got the ~12 tiks to work with on mtgo through the rental programs so though Urza, Emrakul, while undoubtedly make the deck better, a wee bit out of budget.

Grinding Station totally makes sense and probably find a spot in the deck. Other card-wise, I think this version will stay mono-U. Sleep-Cursed Faerie is a sleeper! but might not make the cut, not being an artifact. Mulling it over, the deck come across as artifact/go wide/aggro first, combo second/incidentally

keep them suggestions coming

rona, herald of invasion works with retraction helix + mox amber. more emries + rona might make playing more mox ambers make more sense. If you're playing 4 emries, having 4 Mishra's Bauble would be a no-brainer.

Urza, Lord High Artificer might also be a solid addition, allows you to generate infinite mana regardless of whether or not you have mox amber.

Generally, thassa's oracle is better than labman. other wincon considerations are Bitter Ordeal, Cut / Ribbons, Grinding Station or Grapeshot.

that being said, playing 1x emrakul is probably the best wincon. it would allow you to loot infinitely until you get an infinite mana enabler.

another direction to go is Sleep-Cursed Faerie. It might not go infinite but it can probably bounce your opponents board with retraction helix if you have an urza in play.

It's a finisher with Clock of Omens combo.

The Magda + Clock + artifact dwarf will give you infinite tapped treasure tokens. By fetching Grinding Station as your finisher could mill out players, fetching Roaming Throne will make you double the treasures, therefore, infinite mana.

With infinite mana, Skarrgan Hellkite is also able to close the game.

king-saproling, thanks for the awesome list of card suggestions! They are all worth considering, I just got to figure out which of the bunch I will end up using after testing them out. Also, I kind of forgot about Grinding Station. I don't know why I didn't include it in the deck; I'll definitely go order one or snag one from somewhere.

No Grinding Station?

Also it might be cool to create pseudo-Battered Golems by combining cards like Blisterspit Gremlin, Dwarven Patrol, and Nettle Drone with cards like Liquimetal Torque, Liquimetal Coating, and Ashnod's Transmogrant.

You might consider these too: Kessig Flamebreather, Lambholt Raconteur  Flip, Keen Sense, Snake Umbra, Illusionist's Bracers, Battlemage's Bracers, Cemetery Prowler

Could possibly run a cheerios-esque style deck. Sprinkle a few artifact cost reducers in there like Foundry Inspector to reduce 1 or 2 drop artifact creatures to 0. Being budget though you lose out on Doubling Season and Anointed Procession which you could utilize with Ashnod's AltarPhyrexian Altar/Krark-Clan Ironworks to net mana while sacrificing the tokens and or nontoken creatures. But I'm not sure how effective it would be without these. Blasting Station or Grinding Station (works well with your Altar of the Brood) could finish out games.

Though you could potentially make a large Darksteel Juggernaut with a large amount of food tokens and cheap 0-1-2 drop artifact creatures (whose cost could be further reduced) which would be budget. Easily tutorable in Green/White and throw a Mirrorworks or something in there to copy it. Sculpting Steel it too just to have 2-3 big bois roaming around would be comical. Anthems and trample enablers (instants/sorceries/enchantments/equipment) are plenty in these colors too. This would be on the more casual side.
