Theorycrafting a nonsense The Book of Vile Darkness deck ATM.

I exile a Mechanized Production card under Vecna using The Book of Vile Darkness' activated ability and type- and name-changing shenanigans. I turn Vecna into a noncreature artifact - Equipment (but not an enchantment or Aura). I attach it to an artifact creature. Will Vecna's triggered ability from the Mechanized Production trigger at the beginning of my upkeep, or will the game not consider the attached creature enchanted, since Vecna is not an enchantment - Aura?

If the latter, will later turning Vecna into an enchantment but not an Aura cause it to trigger?

@Omniscience_is_life Idk man I imagine this card slotting in blue decks or decks with blue way to easy, like a Thought Vessel does. Losing to this is easier than losing to Felidar Sovereign, Revel in Riches, Hellkite Tyrant, and Mechanized Production. Manipulating you hand to meet the required condition is way easier to do then all the above conditions with the exception of felidar sovereign, because you start the game at 40 life. It is also (outside of wheels) harder to mess with someone's hand. And for icing on the cake Triskaidekaphile is only 2 mana. It's a boring win condition and its a easy win condition.

FalconForce on Staring Contest: A List of Blink-Effect Cards

Nightmare Shepherd is one of the best as it adds a lot of functionality with no upfront cost and allows you to exploit sacrifice mechanics like evoke. Creating token clones with etb/ltb can easily become overpowered, especially when combined with populate. In fact I built a great ETB Roon EDH deck around it using cards like Yosei, the Morning Star, Protean Hulk and Wayfaring Temples that clone themselves. Token clone generation is amazing because it's essentially ETB blinking as a side effect. You have some cards that do it already listed under abuse but I think the mechanic is good enough and has enough viable cards that it might be worth making a new category for it.

Token clone makers

Stolen Identity Blade of Selves Mirror Mockery Zndrsplt's Judgment Repudiate / Replicate Hour of Eternity Supplant Form Dance of Many Minion Reflector Bramble Sovereign Progenitor Mimic Anointed Procession Quasiduplicate Rhys the Redeemed Back from the Brink Dual Nature Mimic Vat Rite of Replication Song of the Worldsoul Helm of the Host Doubling Season Parallel Lives Battle for Bretagard Mechanized Production Orvar, the All-Form Prototype Portal Saheeli, the Gifted Saheeli's Artistry Seance Second Harvest Soul Foundry Spitting Image Splinter Twin Replication Technique Saheeli Rai Mirror March Mirrorworks Molten Echoes Mythos of Illuna Sublime Epiphany Flamerush Rider Felhide Spiritbinder Littjara Mirrorlake God-Pharaoh's Gift Hofri Ghostforge Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker Followed Footsteps Nightmare Shepherd Osgir, the Reconstructor Echo Storm Cackling Counterpart Esika's Chariot Feldon of the Third Path Flameshadow Conjuring Trickster's Talisman & of course anything with populate.

Also some other blink type cards:

Blink-Yorion, Sky Nomad Conditional bounce- Cunning Evasion ETB clone- Wall of Stolen Identity Graveyard blink- Cauldron of Souls, Twilight Shepherd, Adarkar Valkyrie ETB Abuse- Jalira, Master Polymorphist, Proteus Staff, Master Transmuter. Listing the ones that specifically clone or blink artifacts in their own group might be helpful too.

I'm messing around with a pirate-dragon-prismari treasure deck myself and forgot about Mechanized Production so thank you for that! Brass's Bounty , Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge , Galazeth Prismari , Goldspan Dragon , Shimmer Dragon and maybe even a cheeky Hellkite Tyrant could be fun.

Hardhitta7 on Urza’s Pet Dragon

Calleb I recently redone the whole deck list with different win-cons.

Right now the deck wins with Hellkite Tyrant or Mechanized Production . Dragonstorm can tutor out Hellkite Tyrant and then you can wait a turn to win or you can cast Savor the Moment so your opponents don’t get to untap and mess with it.

I don’t have the deck complete in paper yet so I haven’t tested it. I’m in the process of getting all the cards.

If you want another win con I’ve seen people running Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal and a X spell.

Goldspan Dragon

Steam Vents

Savor the Moment

Mechanized Production

I prefer the original printings but I’m not picky about it, I’ll take what I can find.

You can check out what I have in my binder, my wants aren’t up to date but my haves should be. But those are the two most valuable cards I have for trade.


Edit: updated my binder with the rest of what I need so you can check that out as well as other stuff I have for trade.

Here’s my Binder

TheWanderinGPlaneswalker on Osgir, The reconstructor Consturcted+listofcards

unstable_anomaly All that glitters isn't a bad idea at all. It effectively does what osgir's pump ability already does but without the need to sacrifice the board. Combine that with a basic voltron piece and that's easily 7 dmg a turn. So how the copy effects like Illusionist's Bracers work is similar to if you copy an X spell. So if you cast Doublecast on a spell with x in it then the amount that you payed for x will be copied. SO if x=8 then the copy will have x=8. How I understand it is that osgir's ability is a cost. So for example I activated osgir's ability and pay zero mana and exile lotus petal. I believe what happens is that the lotus petal is exiled as cost as it doesn't say target artifact but exile it as a cost. Anyways, costs are paid first. Then the ability that will go on the stack is the creating 2 copies of the exiled artifact. Just like an x spell being copies would create another copy of that same spell with the same mana spent on x, copying osgir's ability copies what is currently trying to resolve, namely that being the creation of 2 lotus petals. So if copied there would then be 2 instances of osgir's ability on the stack creating a total of 4 lotus petals (after the initial illusionist's bracers ability resolves on the stack).

So the Mox Tantalite and Lotus Bloom are really cool. So say I suspended Mox Tantalite on turn 1 and by the time I have osgir in play he is not summoning sick as well. So then what I can do to ramp is tap the mox to produce a mana. Then I use that mana to osgir's first ability to sacrifice the mox as a cost and then give target creature (even opponents) +2/0 until end of turn. After this (or during it being on the stack because sacrificing the artifact was a cost) I can activate osgir's 2nd ability to pay 0 mana to exile the mox from my graveyard. When this resolves I'll now have 2 Mox Tantalite . For Lotus Bloom it's a similar process just a different result. Lotus bloom is on the field and I sac it for that sweet black lotus mana. Then I use osgir's ability to pay zero and exile it from the graveyard. Then when this resolves I am rewarded with two more copies of Black Lotus that I can sacrifice at my pleasure!

Also no problem with the questions. And no the tokens wont have suspend counters put on them. Mox and bloom work similar with suspend in that if you want to play them from your hand the only way to do that is suspend them instead of casting, wait 3 turns, then cast them at the upkeep. However, there are cards like As Foretold and Electrodominance that allow you to play cards with cmc 0 from your hand. With cards like that you CAN cast them from your hand without suspending. However wheen creating copies of a card even with something like Mechanized Production the copies are just created without being able to suspend them even if you wanted to. There is actually a modern deck based off of this concept called as foretold. Also this concept works the same for Living End . Another modern deck where the goal is to cycle big creatures for 1 mana, get to 3 mana, then cast either Violent Outburst or Demonic Dread to cascade into living end (as the only card 2cmc or less in the deck), then cast that living end without needing to suspend as the cascade mechanic allows you to cast the card. Of course that then leads to a board wipe and all of those big creatures coming back and then you try to attack for the win.

Thx for the comment! Mind sharing your list? I think my list is definitely unrefined so I'm happy for any suggestions on things to cut/add to make it a deck that can hold it's own and being able to provide great value in an interactive game of magic.
