Ornithopter Discussion

Thoughtcast could be a good include for drawing cards instead of Alchemist's Vial . also a couple of Ornithopter s could be good for upping the low cost artifact count.

  • With all your spells being 2cmc or less, you should be running Lurrus of the Dream-Den in the sideboard.

  • Not running Inkmoth Nexus will be making a big concession, as that was a common card for Hardened Scales to use to pull off many of its turn-3 wins.

  • Arcbound Javelineer feels like a worse version of Walking Ballista 90% of the time. Also, not running Walking Ballista further restricts your ability to get off turn 3 or 4 wins.

  • I get what you're trying to do with Springleaf Drum and Ornithopter ... but this feels too janky to be reliable? And it essentially means you're spending 2 cards to get a little extra mana. Feels like a lot of the time it won't really be worth it - you're going to be down in cards, and it doesn't look like you're playing any faster than typical Hardened Scales decks (both versions can win on turn 3, but it looks like this decks options to do so are faar more limited, and require many more cards to pull-off).

dpolatchek01 I actually did run Ornithopter at one point! I can't remember why I took it out. It was probably at some point when I was reducing my number of enablers and prioritizing unblockable ones, but I'll think about putting it back in for sure.

Have you considered running Ornithopter for its no mana cost flying body? Awesome list!

nathanielhebert: Thanks a lot for your feedback! Over the time, I updated this deck with cards like Steel Overseer , Ornithopter and Ensoul Artifact , of course! I can post the changes later. I have to say Gingerbrute is such a powerful card in my meta, I could not believe it first until I won 4 games in a row!

Thanks for the suggestions, I’ll see what I can fit in.

I’ve seen Crackle with Power in some lists, gonna add it and try it out when I get the deck together.

I’m already adding Draconic Intervention just gotta find room, and Evacuation is standing in for Cyclonic Rift until I can buy one.

I do have an extra Primal Amulet  Flip laying around I could add.

I considered Mishra's Bauble but just thought it didn’t do enough, having to wait for the draw is not great. I could see it being good though with Galazeth.

I stayed away from Memnite and Ornithopter because they don’t do anything if I don’t have my commander out.

Do you see anything I should cut?

I would add Crackle with Power as a way to potentially kill one or more opponents. Draconic Intervention and Cyclonic Rift are good wipes that keep Galazeth on the board. Mirari and Primal Amulet  Flip are great instant/sorcery synergies that are also artifacts. Mishra's Bauble , Memnite and Ornithopter are 0 mana artifacts that can now tap for mana with Galazeth.

I like the idea! I would recommend Ornithopter over Walker, simply because there's so many flyers in the meta.
