d_iros: your experience with what's underperforming should be your foremost guide, but here's my take:

Crystal Shard: Obviously versatile, but not essential. Does synergize minorly with Scroll of Fate & creature ETB triggers like Kadena tho

Mistfire Weaver: seems pretty mediocre, although it hurts a bit to cut a morph card

Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip & Lord of the Void: kinda mediocre, and cutting down on either would lower the average CMC. The Scroll helps with expensive stuff tho.

Not making your life easier but you might consider Vivien, Champion of the Wilds & Mystic Forge too

I agree with the above comment.

Rings of Brighthearth+ Basalt = Infinite Mana, + top = Draw and cast your entire deck. With each piece helpful on it's own, I see no reason not to include it aside from room.

Rings + Voltaic Key + Everflowing Chalice making 4 mana = Infinite mana

Another good card is Mystic Forge, which in conjunction with Top and Ugin Ineffible lets you draw your entire deck. Activate top to draw, placing top on the deck. Mystic forge allows you to cast top and Ugin makes that cost free. In an artifact heavy deck, I think this can greatly benefit you. Would love your thoughts.

Hello, I want to ask you about Crucible of Worlds. How can you use it if all lands that you find during inf. phase would be exiled by the Mystic Forge? Is it there only to counter mill decks?

I think the cuts for the Mystic Forge are fine and I agree, Memnarch is hilarious. I don't think Goblin Cannon is nearly as good as Walking Ballista. I think the ballista is a pretty good replacement for Banefire since it is an additional creature for Grand Architect, but I'd keep the one copy of Banefire in the sideboard against control/counters =)

Barbarian_Sun_Pope I thought that i can cut off a Whispers of the Muse and a Serum Visions, becuase Mystic Forge works like them and keep Witching Well cause it's an artifact, also do you think Walking Ballista could work better than Banefire, cause artifact affinity

I don't think you'd need 3 copies of each, since just one does what you need it to do (multiple copies of Mystic Forge is kind of redundant and multiple copies of Semblance Anvil is overkill). I'd try replacing Witching Well since it affects your game plan the least.

Apologize in advance if you've already answered this/considered this.

The previous version of this deck utilized Mystic Forge/Sensei's Divining Top. You cut this since you have to cut Etherium Sculptor to enable the Tidespout Tyrant line.

Have you considered doing the Mystic Forge line with a noncreature cost reducer, like Cloud Key or Semblance Anvil? You could do this while keeping the Tidespout Tyrant line. I realize at 3cmc they are more costly than Etherium Sculptor, but not by that much. And while you risk getting two for oned with Semblance Anvil a cost reduction is powerful (though maybe not necessary for your deck).

Is this too expensive/clunky/slow for cEDH? Thoughts?
