Manakin

Artifact Creature — Construct

Artifact mana dorks like Ornithopter of Paradise, Iron Myr, Gold Myr, Hedron Crawler, Manakin, Alloy Myr, Palladium Myr, Bronze Walrus, Foreboding Statue  Flip, Scuttlemutt, and Opaline Unicorn would be good here because they get Jor out faster, enable metalcraft, and benefit from Jor's ability.

Personally I would cut these and replace then with mana dorks: Thought Vessel, Wayfarer's Bauble, Mox Opal, Gilded Lotus, Arcane Signet, Boros Signet, Darksteel Ingot, Amber Prison

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.

    @enrico81: I'm 2 years late in replying but yes, those are some solid combos to lock your opponents out of the game. My only caution with them would be that tutoring is pretty limited in a colourless build which can make it tough to pull off reliably.

    @ManSauce: I couldn't agree more and I appreciate those kinds of marginal improvements! I was all set to make that change and then I saw Automated Artificer in Neon Dynasty. I recognize the Artificer's mana ability won't help me cast my non-artifact cards so it's perhaps a little more limited than Manakin but I really like the higher toughness, to make him a bit tougher to kill off than a 1/1. So I think I'm going to try the Artificer for now and keep track of how often I regret it in games because I can't use him to help cast a non-artifact spell, like my planeswalkers, instants, sorceries and Wandering Archaic  Flip.

    Bag of Holding and the new Containment Construct are good for negating the card disadvantage from the discard ability. Past that, RNR is right—lots of extra mana is essential for this type of deck. Liquimetal Torque, Manakin, Hedron Crawler... all you can fit. Then the rest can just be card draw and removal

    Manakin is marginally better than Hedron Crawler

    If you run Mirror Gallery and Honor-Worn Shaku you can make infinite Kaldras! While the Gallery is out, Tap Kalda to untap the Shaku, then tap the Shaku to pay for Helm of Kaldra's ability, repeat forever. Since Arcum can find all the combo pieces I think it's worth including. Even without the Shaku, Mirror Gallery lets you pay to make a Kaldra.

    Also I think Manakin is worth running since he gets Arcum out faster and Arcum can eat him. Same for Millikin, Guardian Idol, Ornithopter of Paradise, and Plague Myr.

    Alright, colorless on a budget. Here we go.

    The lands are fine. Looks like basic Wastes really need a reprint.

    I'm counting 19 mana artifacts. If I cut those above a mana value of 3, that's still 16. Plus a few big mana Edlrazis on top. Mana-wise you definitely won't have issues, though we can optimize the selection a little. Manakin and Foundry Inspector have priority over Kozilek's Channeler, Walking Atlas and Warden of Geometries. Sisay's Ring is a second copy of Ur-Golem's Eye.

    You have Myr Retriever and artifact synergy cards in there. Consider adding Scrap Trawler too. If you want to get infinite mana, Spawning Pit and Thermal Navigator can make it possible. Might cause some salt on casual tables though. Workshop Assistant is pretty much the same card as Junk Diver and fits in there as well.

    Cards that I would cut are: Kozilek's Pathfinder, Ulamog's Despoiler, Ruin Processor, Desolation Twin, Deathless Behemoth

    Fun budget cards to consider: Nevinyrral's Disk , Mimic Vat , Duplicant , Transmogrifying Wand , Chaos Wand , Tormod's Crypt or Scrabbling Claws , Sunset Pyramid , Darksteel Pendant , Ichor Wellspring , Shimmer Myr , Crashing Drawbridge .

    Aside from those, I imagine this deck wants Mind's Eye a lot, but it's not a cheap card.
