The99 on A Better Oswald Fiddlebender

I'm alternating cards in and out to find the best play lines for my play style and what suits Oswald... I find that Staff of Domination is seldom often the utility I use to close out the game, as with Rings/Bracers my natural tendency is to lean towards Lesser/Mimic. However, with Mesmeric Orb and Myr Welder I can very easily lean "weld" a win with: e.g. Illusionist's Bracers + WWW6 (9cmc) -> Oswald 1cmc -> Magewright's Stone + Mesmeric Orb -> Oswald 2cmc -> Basalt Monolith + Anything (normally Sculpting Steel on Basalt or Trini if needed) -> Basalt/Mesmeric Library -> Cast Sevinne's Reclamation -> Myr Welder + Thousand-Year Elixir -> Imprint Staff of Domination -> Untap Welder -> Imprint any Mana positive rock (Sol Ring, Mana Vault, etc.) -> Untap and produce infinite generic with Myr Welder's Staff/Rock -> Imprint Walking Ballista / Arcum's Astrolabe + Blasting Station (or any other various combinations of things, pending deck). With this play line, I can very aggressively steal a game. Note: Basalt Monolith will ultimately be used to pay the cost of Sevinne's Flashback. Furthermore, Sculpting Steel can copy any rock to help further reduce the burden of mana. This breathes new life into staff and also allows us to play with a finisher that works as recursion (Myr Welder can very easily become Basalt Monolith in a pinch). I hope this answers your question.

Cloudius on Tap! Tap! Who's there?

Dotheflopguy Glad you like my deck. It is extremely fun to pilot too. Pilgrim got dropped to make room for more elves to better fit the Elvish sub-theme.

I've Magewright's Stone and Thousand-Year Elixir in the Maybeboard cause I felt there're sufficient untap effects in the deck. Being a creature centric deck, I also prefer creature with untap abilities over artifacts.

Vessiliana on Drink Death Like Wine

I definitely like the idea of her sadistic entertainment. It might be worth it on flavor alone!

But I recently cut Magewright's Stone from the deck because the effect was not as necessary as I had thought it might be. I kept the Thousand-Year Elixir for the addition of haste and the Thornbite Staff being able to automatically untap her, too.

Wizardhat91 on EDH - Tim Deck

For your consideration, although I'm guessing they were already under your radar, Sigil of Sleep and Suq'Ata Firewalker . If you end up going for the beautifully bureaucratic wizard flavor of Aphetto Alchemist , then Gilded Lotus , Doubling Cube and Astral Cornucopia look desirable for making blue mana to get extra mileage out of Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura . Trophy Mage and Tribute Mage could hunt down Thousand-Year Elixir and Magewright's Stone for you. Walking Ballista might be an all too often encountered wincon but it does possess strong Tim-like qualities. The deck's looking good, have fun and happy pinging!

Hey! I think that this deck should use Miren, the Moaning Well . It's a way of regaining life with a creature that will die because of some effect. It makes you gain a lot of life and increases the effect of Willowdusk's ability.

About the untap effects outside of blue, you can use Thousand-Year Elixir or Magewright's Stone . About combos... well, if you use sacrifice effects (e.g. Ashnod's Altar ), you could try the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion -like combos (actually, these two work alone, but some combos needs a sac outlet). Depending of other cards, loops with Mikaeus, sacrifice outlets and creatures with Persist could also work.

An artifact like Eternity Vessel can reset your life (if I remember well, having your life total become some value counts as lifegain).

Maybe creatures like Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper or Reyhan, Last of the Abzan works well inside this deck. As instants or sorceries... the only one that came to my mind now is Weather the Storm , which can be very interesting in some situations.

Why use cards like Jaddi Offshoot (gains you only one life), Dash Hopes (I think that's an unreliable counterspell and the 5 life is a low cost in EDH), Blunt the Assault (I think that this card is pretty bad, maybe a card like Gray Merchant of Asphodel gains you much more life while drains your opponents) or Lifegift (it won't make you gain a lot of life on the same turn)?
