Soul Foundry


Imprint — When Soul Foundry enters the battlefield, you may exile a creature card from your hand. (The exiled card is imprinted on this artifact.)

, : Create a token that's a copy of the imprinted creature card. X is the converted mana cost of that card.

Soul Foundry is the creature version of Prototype Portal. Both could be good but generally best with low cmc decks.

Strionic Resonator for exta ETB triggers, Mimic Vat and/or Soul Foundry for every turn bears.

I agree that redundancy for Athreos, God of Passage important, most of these options are listed under Gimmick Support but I love that Nightmare Shepherd is a Demon and a valid Gimmick Target plus I was already considering replacing Desecration Demon so this makes an easy swap! I don't know of many myriad cards so I'll have to look into it more. Soul Foundry and Thrumming Stone look great and I definitely will be trying to find where I can fit them in.

Thanks for the suggestions

having ways to get them back even if they pay the three or just kill athreos is important, i would say throw in a Nightmare Shepherd would work well, it would exile it, but also give it back to you to reuse. helps with graveyard hate, when you burn it yourself for gain. cards that give myriad would work as well likeBlade of Selves or Legion Loyalty thought legion loyalty is a bit expensive cmc wise. since you can use shadowborns ability at instant speed, you can attack make 2 extra shadowborns in a 4 pod and sac them all for a demon before damage or the end of combat. token generators arent a bad idea either like Soul Foundry or Mimic Vat or even Helm of the Host. last a Thrumming Stone never hurt, ive seen people drop 10+ shadowborns with a thrumming stone.

X as an activation cost can also be very useful. Flameblast Dragon can convert mana to direct damage every round. One attack with Tilonalli's Summoner can give you an army of 1/1 tokens. Soul Foundry can give you 2 tokens each round of whatever creature you exile with it.

Riptide Replicator is a little weird but it's fun to play with in tribal decks.

shadow63 I forgot to mention your other comment. I've considered branching clone effects out into their own hub; like you said, half the time you're cloning your own cards. On the other hand, in my experience, it's not too unusual to clone an opponent's card even if you're not using a dedicated clone/theft strategy. Then the temporary token copies created by cards like Flamerush Rider, or effects like Soul Foundry or Mimic Vat, do those count as clone effects?

ElPared, I didn't really think of Crucible of Worlds, but I like my other 3 drops a little better. Usually the three lands from Life from the Loam are more than enough to close things out. I'll play around with crucible a bit, but my initial thought is to stick with Life from the Loam.

Soul Foundry seems a little expensive, but Sakura-Tribe Elder has some potential. I think the tradeoff for something like Explore or Growth Spiral is having a blocker at the expense of the cantrip. Which one is better might just depend on meta, but I'm definitely going to try out Sakura-Tribe Elder and see how it goes!

IHATENAMES, my usual Leyline of Sanctity plan is to remove it with Broken Bond or Force of Vigor from the board, or go wide/big with Scute Swarm or Tireless Tracker. That said, I really like the possibility of having other options as well. I can even see running a one-of Hall of Storm Giants in the main. Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath is probably more of a sideboard card, but I think it would be pretty useful for changing the angle of the deck so it's not as all-or-nothing.

Thanks for the suggestions!

No problem :)

I thought of some other stuff if you're interested. Frst: Why Life from the Loam instead of Crucible of Worlds? If it's the $$$ cost, I totally get it, but if that's not the issue it seems like Crucible would benefit you more, unless I'm missing something.

You also might be able to take advantage of something like Soul Foundry to dupe your crabs. Nothing against the Illusion; it just seems like the cheap copies are too easy to kill is all. Depends on your meta I guess.

Lastly, I'm not sure what your early game looks like, but you might benefit from running Sakura-Tribe Elder as a cheap chump blocker/land fetcher early. Crabs are usually decent walls until like turn 4 or 5, though, so I imagine you don't need the extra defense that often, but SKE definitely has some utility in this deck as an expendable blocker when you can't afford to lose your crabs
