Portal to Phyrexia

Artifact

When Portal to Phyrexia enters the battlefield, each opponent sacrifices three creatures.

At the beginning of your upkeep, put target creature card from a graveyard onto the battlefield under your control. It's a Phyrexian in addition to its other types.

Another thing I just noticed, you said that WOTC doesn’t use the upkeep step anymore, which is laughably and probably wrong.

Heavyweight Demolisher and Portal to Phyrexia are two cards in the most recent set that care about the upkeep. Ones an uncommon and one is a bomb mythic.

Neat idea!

Are you asking for just self-recurring artifacts or artifact recursion in general because and are very good at the latter. For the former, your options are a little limited without . I'd look at artifacts with "unearth", or artifacts like Spine of Ish Sah, Scrap Trawler or Myr Retriever. If you want more general artifact recursion then I'd recommend Daretti, Scrap Savant, Goblin Engineer, Scrap Mastery, Trading Post, and Trash for Treasure. Most of these can be safely played at the precon power level. Some recursion effects that are on the stronger end are Goblin Welder, Portal to Phyrexia, Emry, Lurker of the Loch, and Academy Ruins. These are stronger in my opinion because of their efficiency, repeatability, and they possess fewer constraints.

As far as "how to build a precon level deck" goes, I wouldn't worry about purposely nerfing the deck per say, but maybe asking yourself "could a precon handle the synergies, resiliency, and value engines that my deck creates?". Ultimately though, I think the best advice I can give is to build the deck that you want to build, and that you think is precon level. Then play it against some precons. That will give you the best feel for where you deck is at and if you need to add or remove things.

keizerbuns If you want a progress update, BRO doesn't add as much as I hoped, mostly adding reanimator payoff options. I have the actual construction going on in a private deck copy, so it's not visible here, but my current thoughts are to add Unmarked Grave (which can find artifacts); try mainboard noncreature artifacts like Kaldra Compleat, Possessed Portal, and Portal to Phyrexia; evaluate and trim down the payoffs; and change the early game to use Treasure. Reliability and speed are top priorities right now, but it keeps feeling like a weaker version of Persist -> Archon of Cruelty.

If you have any further thoughts, I'd appreciate the help!

Does the newly spoiled Portal to Phyrexia go in your Braids deck immediately? I was recently inspired to get back into playing EDH after discovering this deck. It's been so fun to play.
