DBCooper on Ways Of The Relics

Honestly this is really great. I would definitely note that, given so many 0 cost cards like Memnite you will be seeing hand issues mid game, and likely want some draw power. I would definitely suggest Thoughtcast for this, as you will always hit that affinity trigger in a deck like this.

Otherwise, I find that Etherium Sculptor speeds everything up, and can make this deck even more aggro.

Finally, Unwinding Clock is a really cool card that makes Steel Overseer and similar cards overwhelming very quickly.

Great work! I really like this deck!

nathanielhebert: Thanks a lot for your feedback! Over the time, I updated this deck with cards like Steel Overseer , Ornithopter and Ensoul Artifact , of course! I can post the changes later. I have to say Gingerbrute is such a powerful card in my meta, I could not believe it first until I won 4 games in a row!

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.

Hey TheDigitalMoose,

Not too much to say on this one, it has a good theme behind it, aligns nicely to the commander.

I has a good ramp package (about 12 or so on a quick look). Talisman of Creativity / Arcane Signet needs to be in here (can replace a higher CMC one). Dockside Extortionist is good if you can get his pre-con at walmart for $30. Foundry Inspector i see quite a bit. Hullbreacher if you lucky enough to crack one, he's super expensive, but so strong.

Scrap Trawler could be interesting, but I think you're on the token strategy, so it's honestly meh for you. More along the recursion lines, I often see Daretti, Scrap Savant being a go to for closing out a game. Sac your mana ramp artifacts to bring back your Myr Battlesphere for example. Hellkite Tyrant might be fun as an alt-win but he's CMC6 but certainly on theme, might be better than some others in those slots. Steel Overseer is often a good early drop, and has good value in all game facets, development, ahead, behind, even. Mirage Mirror is a good way to bring down CMC with game changers as well.

I think some targeted removal would be good, Chaos Warp , Counterspell , Cyclonic Rift , Vandalblast , lots of talk about the value/situation Mystic Reflection I think it may be cEDH level. Arcane Denial maybe. Narset's Reversal is really good, stealing an opponent spell sometimes better than just countering it. Capsize is a staple.

Draw perhaps could get a couple, it definitely has a draw package, I would convert 2-3 of my CMC6/5, and maybe 2 of my CMC4 moving them to the 1-3CMC slots. Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain is CMC4 but also good if replacing a CMC6. Recurring theme I know, thopters LOVE Skullclamp ! Jeska's Will I was a little show me what you can do, and now, I can't see any deck that shouldn't play this card, I've been trying to buy them when I see them in LGS, but they are never in stock. Brainstorm , Ponder are the strongest of the cantrips, I would include to lower the CMC and hit those land drops. Preordain is borderline I think, but it's still worthy of a spot IMHO. Faithless Looting especially if you have a Daretti, Scrap Savant .

Trading Post is just a fun card, I love it in my artifact decks. Good at a 5.

I'll say it again Lands suck, the cost :(. Steam Vents , Shivan Reef , Fiery Islet , Spire of Industry , Riverglide Pathway  Flip are all must includes. Highland Lake / Izzet Guildgate / Swiftwater Cliffs would all be outs for me, things like Sulfur Falls / Training Center / Fabled Passage / Exotic Orchard arent guaranteed mana but have the potential of entering untapped and mana fixing.

I would try and get some more 1 drops (a little lack there at 2, like 6-8 better curve), 3 is probably a good peak, but might be a little too high, have a better progression with CMC2 some mana rocks Arcane Signet / Talisman of Creativity can do that replacing some higher cost ramp. 4 I might try and cut like 3 honestly. 5/6 around 10 total right now its 14. Sometimes evaluating cards on when you can play them, ultimately you want to play more cards = more fun/involvement. Your commander is CMC4 so if your playing her T3/T4 consistently (and that is where most of your cards sit too), you have to choose play the commander or play a 3/4 spell. You want to be developing the board on T1-T3 leading into that T3/T4 commander play with a nice +1 thopter engine. Another thing to think about is now its T4/T5 have 4-7 mana, I can't really cast a 5 and a 2 to use my mana because I'm mostly 3 drops, maybe i have 6 mana and 2x3, but why not play a CMC6+CMC1, or CMC4+CMC2 for maximum value. When everything 3/4 drop including your commander, lots of wasted mana or tough play decisions.

Ancient Stone Idol only has value I think when your ahead, or maybe even if you have a possible swing with flyers, really bad in developing or behind. However, have to balance with how awesomely fun he would be to play.

This deck looks built with good methodology, and a theme/win plan, which is awesome. My friend had a deck I called, "The deck of missed triggers" because no matter what he misses triggers. This deck reminds me of that because you have Draw triggers, Upkeep triggers, CMC enables, ETB's, Attack triggers, end of turn triggers, etc. Lots of stuff to keep track of on your board! It's really fun looking deck, I play Mizzix Spellstorm so I just have to worry about assembling a million combo pieces, but also my Animar Budget is fun, almost the same idea as this deck with creatures vs. artifacts, cast a creature like 5 things trigger and like 4 things modifying the CMC of each spell.

Super fun, nice low moving to mid deck. Cheers!

while Toolcraft Exemplar is really powerful for one mana, it doesn't feed off of Steel Overseer or Tempered Steel and it doesn't feed Cranial Plating or help Etched Champion or Dispatch achieve their metalcraft. so i would suggest replacing them with Court Homunculus .

also War Report or Tomb of the Spirit Dragon would allow you to gain a massive amount of life.

bakeraj4 Right, i think its called Wildwood Scourge . I've considered using it, but I'm sticking with Voracious Hydra for now because it has evasion (Trample) and a form of removal. I like your idea of running Steel Overseer and Knight of Autumn , however, i think I would need more artifact creatures in order to consistently get value out of Steel Overseer (crossing my fingers that they unban Walking Ballista ). I'm all for using Knight of Autumn , I'll probably end up taking out Avatar of the Resolute . I'll also consider using Inscription of Abundance , like you said. Thanks so much for the advice!

I play gw counters and run Steel Overseer and Knight of Autumn . There are times when it's best to use knight to destroy your own hangarback walker. That way you can use overseer to drop counters on all of the newly made thopters. I also run the uncommon hydra from m21. XG and when a counter is placed on a non hydra it gets a counter. My list is removal light as well. I run four Dromoka's Command and two of the green inscription from zendikar rising. But I feel as an aggressive deck that combat is the removal.
