Sydri, Galvanic Genius Discussion
1 week ago
I'm thinking of pulling an old Sydri, Galvanic Genius tiny leaders deck and building a Hanna, Ship's Navigator EDH deck. As always I'm a budget boy. Luckily I've got a Isochron Scepter and a Dramatic Reversal (so a Capsize seems a must and it's a ship too). I like the idea of keeping with a ship/sailing theme, so is there a cheap way of infinite (or at the least plenty) untapping Mogg Cannon to load creatures in and fire them at my opponents? Are there other cards that can do other similiar shenanigans? Would Timestream Navigator have a place in this deck?
Also is filling the deck with Myrs for combos and an army of tokens viable in a toned deck level playgroup? Mainly because they're cheap, sort of adorable and I like an army of robots or something similar idea. Cheers!
TL;DR What would you put in a Hanna deck on a budget keeping with a vague ship/sailing theme and/or with a sub tribal theme of some kind?

I am Corbeau and just started to put my decks on here. I play casually with a nice playgroup. We don't play very competetive and love combo decks. I am usually the person with nearly no removal because I always think that if it doesn't help my strategy it isn't a card for my deck and I want the others to have fun, too. Also I feel restricted in my creativity when I think about the meta or so. So quite often I am in a race to get my deck going and keep my stuff because others don't hesitate do remove everything on my side. I love weird and janky deck strategies. The decks I have at the moment are the ones I play and the one that survived all the building of decks. Very often it is more brewing than playing because we don't get together that often and the EDH community in my city is very competetive. I prefer an environment in which people have fun and don't flame each other all the time.
My Decks at the Moment:
EDH: Alesha, Who Smiles at Death (Aristrocrats) Prime Speaker Zegana (Draw Combo) Prime Speaker Vannifar (Podless Pod) Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons (-1/-1 Counters) Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (Any Counters] Kess, Dissident Mage (Spellslinger) Ghave, Guru of Spores (+1/+1 Counters) Kambal, Consul of Allocation (Lifedrain Prison) Omnath, Locus of Rage (Landfall/Elemental) Daxos the Returned (Enchantress)
Former Decks (I hope I remember all):
EDH: + Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (All cards with counters) Sun Quan, Lord of Wu (Milling) + The Scarab God (Milling) + Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive (Only power 1 or less/Tokens) Talrand, Sky Summoner (Spellslinger) Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (gravepact) Kozilek, the Great Distortion (Eldrazi) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Milling) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Reanimator) Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle (Historic/Reanimator) Nin, the Pain Artist (Artifacts) Nin, the Pain Artist (Milling) Odric, Lunarch Marshal (White Weenie) + Masako the Humorless (Historic/ Throne of the God-Pharaoh ) Padeem, Consul of Innovation (Artifacts) + Kiku, Night's Flower ( Kiku's Shadow / Ragged Veins ) Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Spellsnatching) Sydri, Galvanic Genius (Beautiful Art/Control) Tatyova, Benthic Druid (Beautiful Art/Copy/Draw/Token) Karlov of the Ghost Council (Lifedrain) Obzedat, Ghost Council (Lifedrain) + Obzedat, Ghost Council (Flicker/Token) Akiri, Line-Slinger / Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist (Artifacts/Non-Voltron)
Sadly many of my decks didn't work because of the meta and power level in my playgroup but some were so much fun to play. Favorites marked with + at the front.
I will try to upload the decklists of my current decks. If you have questions about any of the former decks or anything just ask.

In order to have multiple copies of helm of the host, you need 3 pieces:
Helm of the Host : Simple. There is only 1 card that suit this role.
A "turn an artifact into creature" card. There are tons of these in different colors, but most are blue:
- Animate Artifact
- Ensoul Artifact
- Karn, Silver Golem
- Karn, the Great Creator
- Karn's Touch
- Lifecraft Awakening
- Skilled Animator
- Sydri, Galvanic Genius
- Tezzeret the Schemer
- Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas
- Tezzeret's Touch
- Xenic Poltergeist
An "except is not legendary"/"maintain name" clone:
There are some cards that suits the role 2, but don't let you equip the clone. For example: March of the Machines
Conclussion: It's not easy to get it, but possible. It get's lot easier when you add a 4th role as Mirror Gallery letting any clone be of use.

Given the fact that Paradox Engine just got banned, this makes both Jhoira and Arcum worse. Feather also suffers from this. No, this doesn't make any of them unplayable, however you will have to work a lot harder to make these decks work.

Sydri, Galvanic Genius would be my pick. She is overall really cool, and I enjoy her abilities. Ester also is a pretty good color combo for a little bit of control.

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain is really only cheerios from what I've seen. Brighside, a lot of cheap 0 costing rocks are available. Eventually you can however invest a lot into it for things such as Moxes.
Arcum Dagsson is least interesting out of all of these imo, and it can easily fit into the other aforementioned artifact decks as just a good card. I'd say maybe not him as a commander.
If you like Zada, I think you'd love Feather, the Redeemed . It's a real neat deck and brings card draw to Boros, and Zada fits right in.
I saw a Varina, Lich Queen last night and it wrecked. I loved how resilient it is with its graveyard synergies.
Hope this helps!
