Inspiring Statuary


Nonartifact spells you cast have improvise. (Your artifacts can help cast those spells. Each artifact you tap after you're done activating mana abilities pays for .)

Quick heads-up, there are two Hazoret's Monument in here.

Great to see that Chiss-Goria in the deck, it's such a great card. Very cool deck in general. In case you want a cheap alternativ to a Mycosynth Golem, maybe try out Inspiring Statuary. Also, to amp up your token production, Academy Manufactor would be a fine addition.

Cool deck! Personally I would make these swaps:

Messenger Jays -> Academy Manufactor
Lieutenants of the Guard -> Coalition Flag (fun to put on Tivit since he has Ward 3)
Venser's Journal -> Auton Soldier (can copy Tivit!)
Winged Words -> Battle Mastery (double strike on Tivit to double his effect)
Propaganda -> Thorough Investigation
Warden of Evos Isle -> Worn Powerstone
Emergency Powers -> Anointed Procession
Fact or Fiction -> Spark Double
Dig Through Time -> Irenicus's Vile Duplication
Eligeth, Crossroads Augur -> Inspiring Statuary (can tap itself to reduce costs, also allows you to tap clues & treasures to reduce costs)
Sphinx Sovereign -> Brago's Representative
Treasure Cruise -> Sakashima of a Thousand Faces
Opt -> Sakashima the Impostor
Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign -> Time Sieve
Vexing Sphinx -> Mirkwood Bats
Aetherize -> Mondrak, Glory Dominus
Sphinx of Foresight -> Rise and Shine
Glyph Keeper -> Cyberdrive Awakener

Inspiring Statuary is a great call! I think that is a definite add. Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer is a bit too slow, but Urza, Lord High Artificer seems interesting. I'll give it a shot. I think Hullbreacher is banned :(

Or potentially Inspiring Statuary so that we can tap our treasures without losing them?

Also, since you are running a lot of artifacts in this deck, especially equipments that normally don't tap, you might want to consider adding Inspiring Statuary since it will ramp you very hard for all your other spells once you have a few of the artifacts out.

Skullclamp is $5, but it's good with creature tokens, which you make a lot of, and is playable in a lot of decks. Mahadi, Emporium Master lets you turn creature tokens into treasures. Inspiring Statuary makes all your food tokens into mana rocks. Idol of Oblivion draws a lot of cards. Tireless Provisioner, Killer Service make a lot of food tokens. Arterial Alchemy makes a lot of blood tokens. Khalni Garden makes a plant. Judith absolutely isn't bad here, I would much rather cut Bog Naughty, Ciril Ungol Patrol, Dimir House Guard, Galadriel, Scream Puff, Skybeast Tracker, Bake into a Pie, Giant's Skewer, Horned Helm. While they are flavorful, they are very inefficient.

NV_1980 thanks for you input!

I already have Ugin, the Ineffable as well as Nevinyrral's Disk in the list.

In the draw department, I shy away from sorcery speed draws like Introduction to Prophecy because I'd like to have as much open mana as I can to allow interactions when it's not my turn. Also, I'd rather ramp than play an expensive drop like Mind's Eye and pay additional ~3 during each opponent's turn. 2-drop draw engines like Mazemind Tome and Endless Atlas would be the best for this.

As for the Urza's Incubator, it's true that I've been eyeing this for a while. This can cheat Ulamog way earlier than I already could (imagine I also have Inspiring Statuary on the field-- oh boy, that's free 3!). But just for more flexibility, I'm leaning towards Cloud Key. And if I would spend 20 bucks on an Urza's Incubator, I guess it'll be for a Sensei's Divining Top instead.

Zarthalius I considered adding Inspiring Statuary... It may not give me treasures but since it saves the ones I already own from getting sacced, it's just as good. It'd be good for my powerstones too!

Krark-Clan Ironworks is cool, but for 30 bucks I'm not sure if it'd be worth it for my deck... Sure it gives me redundancy, but the problem is I can't cast anything other than X spells with it because it's colorless. That's one of the reasons I love Goldspan Dragon. It's not a bad artifact per say, but it just doesn't really inspire me like other cards have...
