Kalain, Reclusive Painter

Legendary Creature — Human Elf Bard

When this enters the battlefield, create a Treasure token. (It's an artifact with ", Sacrifice this: Gain one mana of any colour.")

Other creatures you control enter the battlefield with an additional +1/+1 counter on them for each mana from a Treasure spent to cast them.

Couple of fun ones that immediately pops up to me with a Dragon's Approach deck that runs Hellkite Tyrant would be Descent into Avernus. You can make your opponents create treasures that you then proceed to steal with Hellkite. Goldspan Dragon also synergizes well with treasures, making it easier to hard-cast any dragons you may draw into. Speaking of hard-casting, Kalain, Reclusive Painter can make your dragons bigger if you spend mana from treasures to cast them from your hand.

Barbarian_Sun_Pope I like the suggestion of Kalain, Reclusive Painter I never even considered trying to utilize the right side of the Tomb of annihilation.im not so sure about Wily Goblin because of its double red cost. I was thinking about taking out Cemetery Gatekeeper because I don't think he really fits with what I'm attempting to do here.

I like what you're going for here (+1). Do you think Kalain, Reclusive Painter or Wily Goblin would fit here? They're cheap, fulfill two of the conditions for the second room in the tomb by themselves, and can accelerate in a pinch.

Hello friend! I have some suggestions! I had way too much time today, so here you go.

Relatively cheap, potent, and just perfect upgrades.

This bit is, of course, focused on making as many treasures as your board can bear.

Great, now you have all of these treasures, now what are you going to do with them?

  • Frogmite, Lens Flare, Scale of Chiss-Goria, Tooth of Chiss-Goria, Mycosynth Golem, Slag Strider, Furnace Dragon, and Myr Enforcer are all notable cards you could add, since they pretty much become free after a while, though mostly pretty useless.

  • Forsworn Paladin is pretty good token generation early game, but really shines with the second ability where it can instantly punish anyone blocking or attacking you recklessly.

  • Marionette Master is going to pack a punch.

  • Dargo, the Shipwrecker is super cheap for a 7/5 with trample.

  • Enraged Giant, Freejam Regent, Battle at the Bridge, Saheeli's Directive, Herald of Anguish, and Organic Extinction are all pretty solid additions, since they don’t make you sacrifice anything in exchange for it.

  • Ruthless Technomancer has a million combos with (like Dockside Extortionist+sac outlet) and is just pretty good on its own.

  • Leonin Elder is just one life, but when you’re playing a treasure deck, that one life will definitely add up.

  • Underhanded Designs is a murder or a poke engine, which is very snazzy.

  • Glaze Fiend is pretty scary, considering that it has trample.

  • Dragonspark Reactor could be a bit of removal in your back pocket or your wincon.

  • Arcbound Crusher’s design team didn’t anticipate just how many artifacts I was planning on throwing onto the field.

  • Professional Face-Breaker is just like Grim Hireling, in that it makes treasure tokens, but more importantly, it gives you something else. You get a load of impulse draw, which is really nice when you have loads of mana.

  • Magda, Brazen Outlaw is just an artifact tutor, really. Though, there are plenty of treasure loving dragons you could also fish for. (:

  • Kalain, Reclusive Painter loves treasures, giving everyone big buffs.

  • Swashbuckler Extraordinaire can give anything that might be sensitive to dying double strike for a big final push. That, or just give one big boy double strike.

  • Their Number is Legion gets you lots of life and lots of tokens.

  • Necron Overlord is just a worse Ghirapur, but it’s still gonna hurt.

  • Street Urchin is the same idea as the above.

  • Armix, Filigree Thrasher could be some annoying removal, especially early game.

  • Hellkite Igniter is a big boy that, if left unblocked, could be a one hit kill.

  • Feedback Bolt is a big, powerful spell. To put it simply: ouch.

  • Fain, the Broker can make treasures, can make +1/+1’s, and can make little spooky boys. The best type of boys. Great utility and variety overall.

  • Rain of Riches is big. One cascading spell a turn, whichever one you want? Imagine dropping Feedback Bolt and cascading into Hellkite Igniter.

  • Captain Lannery Storm is innocent… Until you leave her unblocked like a dummy.

  • Concussive Bolt can be an easy kill, letting you get as much damage as you want through.

  • Dispense Justice is just like saying “Fuck your voltron.”

  • It seems you also like having and sacrificing constructs, so here’s a bit to let you do more of that, if you’d prefer to have a construct deck over a treasure token deck.

    • Shared Animosity will give constructs a boost, but there really isn’t a specific theme across creature types aside from that, and your constructs are better used for chump blocking or just turning them into scrap. Ignore this if you’re going for more of a construct tribal sort of thing.

    • Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  Flip is a good card, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think it’s really necessary.

    • Rakdos Charm could be replaced with something better as far as artifact removal or graveyard hate. Nihil Spellbomb would be good graveyard hate and Generous Gift is just a good white staple.

    • Comet Storm is fun, but Crackle with Power is more fun.

    Would Kalain, Reclusive Painter or Atsushi, the Blazing Sky have places in the deck?

    You might also want to consider Nykthos Paragon for an insane payoff from the lifelink.

    I recently did the forum training, so it's like this: take your slug - this part kalain-reclusive-painter (omit the date) and put it in 2 pairs of brackets like this: Kalain, Reclusive Painter

    Uhh, there we go.
