PieCake on What P/T has Brotherhood Vertibird …

1 month ago

Let's say you control Sydri, Galvanic Genius and an uncrewed Brotherhood Vertibird. You tap an Island to activate Sydri's ability and target the Vertibird. The only artifact you control is the Vertibird.

a.) What P/T does the Vertibird have in this scenario?
b.) What P/T does the Vertibird have, if I decide to crew it with Sydri after using her first ability on Vertibird?

I haven't had a chance to slot Chivalric Alliance into their relevant decks yet, but have liked Minas Tirith, since my meta doesn't run much land destruction beyond stuff like Beast Within/Generous Gift/Demolition Field.

A couple more creatures I'd recommend checking out are Managorger Hydra and Ravenous Slime. Managorger can get huge pretty quickly (assuming it doesn't eat removal), and Ravenous Slime is a cheeky bit of graveyard/aristocrats hate that can also balloon up.

Nice! My primary playgroup moved on from "tabletop Modern jank" to EDH once the 60 card stuff started becoming samey. We were playing it mostly multiplayer anyways, so EDH made most sense. My first EDH deck attempt was turning the Sydri, Galvanic Genius precon into something resembling a deck. I consider Tuvasa the Sunlit to be my first true EDH deck, since that's the first one I took the time to actually upgrade. I took Tuvasa apart a while ago, but my Gylwain, Casting Director deck uses quite a bit of the pieces that Tuvasa originally used.

Hey all ! :D so i wanna build an artifact edh with pingers/stax by animating them into creatures eventually. I really like Sydri, Galvanic Genius for this task, mostly because her activated abilities and cuz she has White. Although...i also feel like Katsumasa, the Animator would provide me with free counters to animate them without relying on their cmc = p/t. Wich one would you use as commander? and i would really apreciate a full list of all stax/tax artifacts! and one more: Nurgle's Rot have u broken this card? seems really fun if u can spam it xd.

If your main focus is lifegain, you can pretty easily win with lifegain alone using Test of Endurance, Felidar Sovereign, or Celestial Convergence - all three are very high-priority targets that need to survive a turn rotation, but Oloro can pretty easily bolster your life total enough and you have the counter magic to protect them (and if Convergence takes too long, something like Vampire Hexmage or Hex Parasite can skip the 7 turn clock). Or, if you want to focus more primarily on Aetherflux, you could use Sydri, Galvanic Genius to animate it and give it lifelink to make it game-winning at 51 life rather than 151.

metalflame on Sydri, mind slaver, and nim …

Sydri, Galvanic Genius can turn Mindslaver into a creature, and when you sac it you can put it back on the field with Nim Deathmantle.

Effect is you bring back mind slaver, take the opponents turn, and then take your turn again. Rinse repeat for infinite mind slaver

Is this how this would work in EDH?

Gidgetimer on Experience with Aetherflux Reservoir

It is a win-con card plain and simple. You don't just play Aetherflux Reservoir out for value. It draws entirely too much heat.

If people are using it as a spite move or to try to stall the game they are playing the card incorrectly. You either gain up to 51+ in an esper control deck and use Aetherflux Reservoir to shoot the table down by giving it lifelink with Sydri, Galvanic Genius or you play it to fuel paying life into Bolas's Citadel with either Necropotence or Sensei's Divining Top out to remove lands from your topdeck.

That is my bad, I thought it was in your haves, sorry. How about Swan Song, Leyline of Anticipation, Sydri, Galvanic Genius, Duskmantle Seer, and Exhume.

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.
