Katsumasa, the Animator

Legendary Creature — Moonfolk Artificer


: Until end of turn, target noncreature artifact you control becomes an artifact creature and gains flying. If it's not a Vehicle, it has base power and toughness 1/1 until end of turn.

At the beginning of your upkeep, put a +1/+1 counter on each of up to three target noncreature artifacts.

Hey all ! :D so i wanna build an artifact edh with pingers/stax by animating them into creatures eventually. I really like Sydri, Galvanic Genius for this task, mostly because her activated abilities and cuz she has White. Although...i also feel like Katsumasa, the Animator would provide me with free counters to animate them without relying on their cmc = p/t. Wich one would you use as commander? and i would really apreciate a full list of all stax/tax artifacts! and one more: Nurgle's Rot have u broken this card? seems really fun if u can spam it xd.

Hey, well done list so far on a low budget. Elsha with Vehicles is an interesting choice.

Some advice to get started on revision/optimization is to streamline creatures and lands to make Elsha better. Consider reducing the creature count down to 10 of the best creatures here for Vehicles strategy and/or crewing? (ordered by CMC)

The less creatures the better for Elsha. Cut most creatures for lands and ramp? Elsha doesn't work with lands thus having less can also make Elsha better. Consider 32 lands with many budget low mana cost mana rocks to replace some lands?

To help with deck building add all the lands you want to play, even just basic lands, to see how many spots are left to fill or how many cards you need to cut to add more lands. Some budget lands to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

lol the investigation continues xd hahahah KL185 yeah i mean the main "issue" is that you cant spam the counters on the same artifact with him, u can still get counters from other sources i guess, but itd be nice to blink him over and over. At the end of the day you can always passively use Katsumasa, the Animator and swing when youre ready....maybe.

Should definitely add Unwinding Clock possibly over Teleportation Circle, also Skullclamp is amazing card draw since Shorikai makes 1/1's. I am not a fan of Planar Collapse since its telegraphed there are so many other board-wipe options. Drift of Phantasms and Idyllic Tutor are both inexpensive ways to find Intruder Alarm if you want to up the power level. Adding in Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal is another powerful combo for this deck that is safer than Intruder Alarm (harder to interact with, if you want to up the power level you can run both Alarm and Scepter). Why is Dolmen Gate in here there are about 1-2 on attack/on hit triggers, seems like a waste of a card slot. I like Katsumasa, the Animator since it can animate a sol ring or signet to start the Intruder Alarm combo. Awesome deck, I have been loving Shorikai.
