Smuggler's Copter Discussion
1 day ago
My main thought looking through this list was that it feels like you’re creating extra steps for yourself - pretty much all your “cheap cmc vehicles” don’t have any additional power over what green can provide normally in creature form, so you’re creating extra work for yourself with no real gain.
Instead of Funeral Longboat , Smuggler's Copter and Sky Skiff you could just be running Avatar of the Resolute , Kalonian Tusker , Strangleroot Geist , Dryad Militant , Experiment One , or Pelt Collector . These all provide equal power to what you’re running, sometimes for less mana, and actually provide threats by themselves.
I’ll concede that Esika's Chariot is probably a decent way to get 8 power on board for 4 mana.

I updated my Mono Artifacts deck recently, and feel it is playing stronger than ever.
Six months later I've taken another look at it, and thought hard about some new cards that I think are working well.
I had to ditch Chief of the Foundry but I needed the 3 drop slot for other cards.
This still has quite a few original ideas in it, and I still prefer it to Izzet.
Take a look and make some suggestions, or throw it an upvote, if you like it.

First of all, thanks for your suggestions! Actually, I already had the Smuggler's Copter in the Deck, but I decided to cut it. For the direct tapping of Kalamax, the Stormsire , I already have the Cultivator's Caravan and the Survivors' Encampment . That should be enough, I think. I really appriciate suggestions!

Would you consider running vehicles to help tap Kalamax without relying on him to attack?
Also the idea of a Stegasaurus piloting a tiny helicopter would look hilarious.

You realize you have to ban a crap ton of stuff, right? Mox Amber , Mox Opal , Mox Diamond and Chrome Mox all mean that everyone has 2 mana turn one every single game. Also, most decks are running Skullclamp in the equipment slot anyways, especially as that's basically the only equipment worth playing in high tier play. Other than that, you'd have Lightning Greaves . That's two equipment that you'll see.
The vehicle is always Smuggler's Copter . There's nothing else good enough to see play in high power, and everything else is a gimmick.
On lands, most decks will probably just run Boseiju, Who Shelters All , and the ones that don't get crap like Gaea's Cradle, Eye of Ugin , Phyrexian Tower , or The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale . Maybe the occasional Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper to power out big commanders.
Planeswalker? Hmmmm. . . . Oko, T3f, Wallet Sculpter, LotV mean anything to you? Between them, the only cards worth playing will be sorceries and enchantments . . . oh wait, Serra's Sanctum for the Sythis player.
It's an unplayable format because nobody can cast instants, nobody can keep a creature or artifact around because it's an Elk, nobody has a hand, all of that starts on turn one, and oh by the way you also get a Copter that you might bother to cast. You can crew it with the Mox you got to use twice before it got Elked! That's fun. Then the Elves player with 400 Cradle mana and the Enchantress player who staxed the table out while drawing 40 cards a turn will take over the game.
While it could be fun, the first couple turns will play out exactly the same every game. Everybody either gets overly explosive starts or overly staxxy starts. You could ban stuff, yes . . . but what happens when you ban the cards worth running in those slots? You get a bunch of Copters. Cards that are played because they're objectively good but you'll never cast them because almost anything else is better in this format. And then where are you? Back to commander, but with a larger banlist and everybody gets several extra useless cards in hand.
TL;DR, Interesting idea but I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole, and I enjoy degenerate piles of stax like the filthy grinch I am.

Great list and thanks for visiting my Ich-T/Akiri list. How is Sparkhunter Masticore ? Is it just another discard outlet or are you using it as an indestructible attacker?
At this point, I'm adding Smuggler's Copter to my list. It is great at , it looks, and is an easily recurred artifact. Also, I like the idea of two or four Looter Scooters with Osgir's ability.

Hail, fellow dwarf lover! Just a few suggestions!
The first one is that while the back of Lukka, Wayward Bonder is red, the whole card is considered to have the color identity of both sides, so white and red. Unfortunately that means that you won't be able to legally run the card in your mono red deck (though honestly it's up to your playgroup on how they want to follow that rule, as long as yall are on the same page!). The same thing goes for Alesha, Who Smiles at Death . That being said, both of those cards are good commanders in their own right, but can't be played in the deck legally :/
As for cards, she's quite a stout dwarf! Some of the interesting cards I've come across when playing against it are Springleaf Drum , any vehicles like Smuggler's Copter . Both can get a lot of value from tapping your commander. A weird but good card would be something like Honor-Worn Shaku . 3cmc mana rock that produces upwards of 3 mana means you can quickly hard cast some of your bigger permenants!
Also I wouldn't overlook some of the changelings! Things like Bloodline Pretender and Taurean Mauler can get pretty big! Changeling Berserker , if fetched from the deck using the commander's ability, is also a cheeky way of getting around a board wipe.
Kindred Charge could also be another wincon, as it either makes a TON of treasure with dwarves, or doubles down on dragon attacks.
And I'm not sure of your budget, but Embercleave can put in a lot of work too!
Hope these suggestions give you some ideas, and may your beard grow ever longer!
