Seat of the Synod Discussion

Kogarashi on Myr Landshaper and Unwinding Clock

If you want to use Unwinding Clock to untap lands, you'll either need to run one or more of the six existing artifact lands ( Ancient Den , Seat of the Synod , Vault of Whispers , Great Furnace , Tree of Tales , and Darksteel Citadel ) or run Mycosynth Lattice , which will add the artifact type to all permanents (including lands).

You have Tree of Tales in your deck but no Seat of the Synod . Why? Both can be fetched by Trinket Mage .

I would suggest Urza, Lord High Artificer as well as Darksteel Citadel and Seat of the Synod in place of two of your basic Islands. Wurmcoil Engine would also be great as it produces two tokens when it dies, and you can merely recur it right back. The same can be said with Myr Battlesphere and even Steel Hellkite as a powerful means of control. In fact, Ratchet Bomb might be useful as well.

I agree with becks16. Any cEDH deck like this should be running a Seat of the Synod .

No Seat of the Synod or Darksteel Citadel ? It seems like the deck would benefit from them due to Emry, Lurker of the Loch 's passive cast reduction.

hey here are some changes/suggestions.

Chromatic Star instead of Chromatic Sphere You actually need to put in Intuition , Timetwister you probably just forgot about it Welding Jar , Seat of the Synod , Mox Amber Hurkyl's Recall Mental Misstep needs to be in here

IDK what artifacts you need to put in here but you need more. I feel like emry's mill need to hit something every time

remove Capsize its only useful if you have infinite mana and you have plenty of other things that can win you the the card that can replace this. put in Winds of Rebuke

Power Artifact doesn't have enough targets. i don't think its good enough here

are you trying to make a grindy/control deck or are you just going full combo? not sure which one emry is better at. if you are going full combo i think you can take out Pithing Needle ... Tezzeret the Seeker is a lot of mana for him to honestly just -0 for fast mana or like Altar of the Brood

Klancik I don't really think KCI is worth it in this deck considering that Emry herself works as an infinite mana engine with both Lotus Petal and Lion's Eye Diamond . They both need either Mirran Spy or a Freed from the Real effect, even though lotus petal only works with Mirran Spy . In my opinion, the deck works better with tutors to find said cards instead. Plus, since Emry can create infinite mana starting on turn two, cards that can protect that combo are probably better as well. This list is missing Seat of the Synod though, since that lets you play Emry on turn one with any one drop artifact. Grinding Station seems like a fairly solid include though. Keep in mind that a god hand with Lightning Greaves , Lion's Eye Diamond , any blue producing land, Mana Crypt , a Freed from the Real effect or Mirran Spy and any artifact based wincon wins the game on turn one, which is only made more consistent by the fact that Emry effectively digs you another 4 cards deep when she enters the battlefield.
