TheVectornaut on Messing with Lore

Sorry I haven't been on to respond in a while. I've been busy with work and haven't been playing much as my LGS still hasn't opened tables up to Magic players. I may not know much about some of these new cards, but I'll still offer some advice on running artifacts in EDH. (Most of my experience is with Sydri, Galvanic Genius in A Pile of Cans so feel free to check that out.) First, I'd try to narrow down to a particular approach to build around. Osgir, the Reconstructor offers a range of options in this regard. Then, you can make swaps for cards that synergize more with that chosen approach.

One option I see is running as many low-cmc artifacts as possible to minimize how much you have to spend on your commander's activated ability. The best bet for this might be the new modular cards. They have small bodies that can be buffed by Osgir after combat and give extra benefits on being killed off themselves. Bonus points if you can afford Arcbound Ravager. Modular is not actually a triggered ETB so you can't get more benefit from Panharmonicon, but I'll touch on that more later. Other options include Bomat Courier, Epochrasite, Gingerbrute, and Sorcerer's Broom. Making lots of token creatures makes a go-wide plan with Steel Overseer, Chief of the Foundry, Signal Pest, and the like more viable. Anything else that produces thopters or servos fits too. Untapping Osgir is probably more mana efficient than copying his ability with this approach.

The exact opposite gameplan is also possible. Run plenty of ramp artifacts like Basalt Monolith, Thran Dynamo, Blinkmoth Urn, and Hedron Archive to play and duplicate overwhelming threats. Darksteel Forge, Soul of New Phyrexia, Platinum Angel, Platinum Emperion, Spine of Ish Sah, Bosh, Iron Golem, Phyrexian Triniform, and Summoning Station are the first options I can think of. Unfortunately, such cards do tend to be less budget friendly. I think it would also be worth distinguishing between a plan using death and entry triggers and one using taps and untaps. The former is where Panharmonicon comes back into play along with Mirrorworks, Prototype Portal, and the refurbish-ers like Goblin Welder. The latter is where Unwinding Clock is king along with its little brothers Clock of Omens, Voltaic Construct, and Voltaic Key. (Both choices can also apply to a more aggressive approach of course.) Here, copying Osgir's ability is likely to be more efficient than untapping him.

Some other artifacts I'm a fan of that are always useful are Mirage Mirror, Kuldotha Forgemaster, and Scourglass. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to get back as soon as I'm able. I apologize in advance if that means a few days.

Thanks rb701 for youre comment!

Yeah im still struggeling with the Sideboard, i never used the most Cards except for Golem's Heart and Pitiless Plunderer. So there is a lot to do here.

I never heard of Sands of Delirium but that seems to fit perfect in here combined with Blinkmoth Urn. I will definitly try it out!

But im not sure if i just should remove Blinkmoth Urn since i never really needed it and the deck is running pretty well at the moment.

Maybe i should put somthing like Grave Pact against creature heavy decks and something like Tormod's Crypt in?

Any other ideas what to Change?

At the Moment im thinking of something like this:

1 x Tormod's Crypt Graveyard hate

1 x Grave Pact Creatures

2 x Altar of the Brood more mill

2 x Shriekhorn after the three uses, can be sacrificed to Grinding Station an with Scrap Trawler it can bring back some "0" cost Cards. Also its another target after sacrificing Ichor Wellspring

1 x Locket of Yesterdays So we only need to pay the first Myr Servitor and against mill decks

1 x Profane Memento lifegain against aggro

4 x Feed the Swarm

1 x Summoning Station

1 x Genesis Chamber

1 x Pitiless Plunderer

Na minha opinião o deck esta bastante bom. Tenho algumas sugestões que podiam ser incluídas: - Quickling - Esta carta é bastante boa. Tenho no deck dos ninjas e sempre me ajudou não só a escapar removal como ativas o efeito da Snake. O facto de ter flash permite-te usar á qualquer altura. - Thought Monitor , Thought Monitor - Tantos artifacts tornam o affinity artifact bastante bom. Estas permitem sacar cartas á um low cost - Rise and Shine , Summoning Station - Win-Cons - Path of Discovery - Com tanto bouce dá jeito. XD - Moritte of the Frost , Spark Double - Que melhor que um commander são dois.

Hallo Spell_Slam! Thank you for your comment!
This is still a prototype for the deck and some cards you mentioned are continuously going in and out from the list. I do not always use the live edit tool to switch cards from main to maybe and often, when i take out a card, i forget to add it back again at the maybeboard. Daretti, Gamble and the Dynamo are among them and they're on the radar for sure.
When i added Path to Exile , i considered that this deck perhaps prefers to give away lands rather than life, since it wins through combat damage. I tested Dispatch , but the risk is that it will become useless if I am too far behind for some reason.
I'm not totally sold on Scrap Trawler either, as maybe i prefer having things in my graveyard more than i want to have them in my hand.
Idol of Oblivion has worked really well in all my tests, i'm inclined to think i'll keep it, but i agree on the Bauble and the Phoenix though. They're in only until I decide what to replace them with (the Dynamo, probably). Thank you for your suggestions, that was very kind of you!


BransBranflakes, thank you for stopping by!
3 Drinks are better than 3 cards for sure, and with Anointed Procession and/or Illusionist's Bracers on the field, that makes for 5-7 drinks. Now you just have to figure out how to make the opponent pay for them too!
I thank you for the degenerative suggestions, but i'm trying to keep up with my group's meta and to be a good boy (a little). GoOoOOolems!


Hallo again discipleofgary73!
Inspiring Statuary is intresting, but i play very few non-artifact spells in this deck and they're already relatively cheap. Glimmervoid and Summoning Station were noted though!

Hey discipleofgary73, thanks for stopping by. Appreciate the comment / upvote.

Summoning Station does have a high CMC and might push me over a 3.0 average, but I do like it's combo potential. I'll add it to the maybeboard and consider some future playtesting. Thanks again! Cheers.

What a fun theme! I feel like Summoning Station fits it well and could slide in on some of the infinite combos (especially easy if you end up adding in the lattice), though it might push your cmc up a bit much.

The aesthetics are chef's kiss
Maybe Genesis Chamber , Inspiring Statuary , Summoning Station , Mirrorworks , Glimmervoid , and Pia Nalaar for other aritifact-focused cards. If you end up going for lots of tokens, Anointed Procession and Requiem Angel might be fun.
Thanks for stopping by!
