Building an Akiri deck I'm on the artifact matters path, perhaps this utility can improve the flow if you find it lacking in places, and increase the value of X

You could also take artifact matters along a 'toss creature' path with Fling and fat guys like Shambling Suit Darksteel Juggernaut

Heliogabale--first off, thanks for the logistics call. I'm still VERY new to spicing up my decks with code, so we'll see if I can figure out how to make that switch ;)

As to your actual card suggestions:

Meletis effectively draws us 3 cards here--a land, an 0/4, and a random card with Losheel. Plus 2 life. All that means that it's a pretty effective piece of value, given the... how shall I say it nicely... restrictive nature of its color.

Dragon Throne of Tarkir sure is slow, but with our cost reducers ( Jhoira's Familiar et al.) it becomes a little more fathomable. Sticking the Throne onto a Bronze Guardian or Shambling Suit is a great feeling, too.

This Ellie is only in the deck due to the insanely low number of respectable pump effects in white. Anthems only do so much--I find myself needing 4+ extra power to close games how I'd like to.

I like Reconnaissance , I honestly hadn't considered the possibility of an opponent removing Losheel in combat. Makes ya wonder how I've made it this far in this game... anyhow Recon should be finding a spot here soon. Good call.

I tested ATG for a while, but found it underwhelming. It either goes onto a creature without evasion and gets chumped out, or makes a threat and gets its host removed, two-for-one'ing me.

Vedalken Orrery is an insanely powerful card (may we please have a reprint, good people of WotC?), I might find it worth the +ahem+ considerable financial cost it implies.

I hadn't thought about Winds of Abandon as an evasion effect, that's pretty spicy! I don't like ramping my opponents, but I suppose it doesn't matter if they are no longer in the game.

All in all, thanks for the comment! I feel lucky to have you next in line on that thread, last time the advice given was far less applicable.


Mechanon on Glissa's artifacts (50$ budget deck)

Golgari Guildgate could probably be swapped for Command Tower . Other useful cards might be Darksteel Juggernaut , Bonehoard , Shambling Suit , Steel Overseer and Traxos, Scourge of Kroog . There's some pricey versions of some of these cards for a few bucks or more but there's also 50 cent versions.

ProgHouseDJ Not sure which artifact creature you're referring too that do that (there's quite a few and I never remember what's legal in historic), maybe Shambling Suit?

Either way, if you're a big fan of white then I would drop Emry to simplify your mana base. You want as many colorless mana producers to maximize the value of your Forsaken Monument anyway. Also if you're streamlining like that I would say you could also afford to run fewer Solemn Simulacrum too. Don't get me wrong it's a nice little value generating card, but in a largely colorless deck fetching a basic land can have limited utility (especially if you end up doing what I suggested earlier about running more colorless lands), it's 4CMC is kind of obnoxious for what it does.

If you know the meta you are playing in, some mainboard Phyrexian Revoker might be alright. Also Shambling Suit is a construct that can be used as a beater in the middle of a game.

I'm going to try and base this advice/suggestions by section.

Creatures: Since you have 32 it's probably safe to say you want to be an attacking deck. Knowing that I would try to up the numbers on Etched Champion and Shambling Suit since they will probably be some of your best damage dealers. Arcbound Worker could also be upgraded to Sparring Construct. I only say this because it can move it's counter to an ugin token when it dies and worker can't. Very niche situation, but still.

I'm also going to suggest a couple extra copies of the Foundry Inspector for speed purposes since it will assist with some of the later suggestions I am going to make.

Lands: It looks like a random pile, but since you don't have any color requirements, I really don't know what to suggest for it.

Artifact: There's a lot of things that don't really assist with the creature/attacking plan so I'd suggest cutting the Clock of Omens and almost all of the Elixir of Immortality. Skyblinder Staff doesn't seem particularly strong compared to Cranial Plating and could probably be switched into something else. What I'm thinking is moving the Mystic Forge to the main and trying to work in a couple additional copies. Possibly in place of a couple Howling Mine's. What, I do think would be an interesting idea would be trying a Grinding Station as an alternate win condition in case the damage plan won't work out. It gives you an out against random problems like Ensnaring Bridge.

Planeswalkers: I think your copy of Karn could probably be more useful as an additional copy of the Ugin the Ineffible for redundancy purposes. That and it will contribute to the Grinding Station idea a lot more smoothly. If you are wanting a karn in your maindeck I think Karn, the Great Creator could be the most beneficial to you, since it could open up a tutor path to your sideboard slots.

Sideboard: I'm going to say this on the assumption you have a Karn, the Great Creator.

What I think would be most beneficial would be a silver bullet type approach with cards like Damping Sphere or Meteor Golem, possibly even Spine of Ish Sah. This could be very customized to whatever you get used to playing against.

Anyhow, these are my thoughts and if you want me to give you quantities on changes, then I'll gladly offer you those as well.

Also, just food for thought but Embercleave on a Shambling Suit is game-ending

Thanks for the suggestions sg_86. From first glance Shambling Suit does look like a strong card that can get big fast. However it does seem to be a bit slow to me at the same time. The earliest it could be attacking in a deck like this would be t4. It doesn't impact the board right away like Sai or Emry can. Also it also doesn't have any evasion, so that huge attack can just end up being chump blocked. In a deck with a way to give it evasion or get it out earlier I can see Suit putting in the work. As for Vile Aggregate I see that as a weaker card then Suit for all intents and purposes. Aggregate can't get nearly as big as Suit can in this deck. The evasion and high defense is nice but I'd rather slot something like Suit. I think Suit is a good addition to a deck that is more aggro oriented and has ways to get it's damage through. Aggregate I think would just be Suit copies 5-8 or better in a metagame with stronger burn spells.
