Tamiyo's Journal

Legendary Artifact

At the beginning of your upkeep, investigate. (Put a colourless Clue artifact token onto the battlefield with ", Sacrifice this artifact: Draw a card.")

, Sacrifice three Clues: Search your library for a card and put that card into your hand. Then shuffle your library.

If you want to try and turn this infinite you could try using Krosan Restorer. To help you get the threshold active you can use some Brokers Hideout and some type of loot draw like Thirst for Discovery to help you find combo parts. If you take the threshold path you may want to consider using Consider over Opt at the very least.

Another draw/ramp card to consider Growth Spiral

Spellbook doesn't do anything based on the card draw options you are using.

Tamiyo's Journal is very slow and I don't see any cards to interact with your opponent outside of Counterspell. Doubt Journal this will do much for you.

Also you somehow have 6 copies of Counterspell in your deck.

If you want a board wipe to help you survive and don't want to kill all your creatures, then you may want to consider Time Wipe.

Prosperous Innkeeper may be something you want to run if you do not want to run sweepers as it gives you etb to gain life to sustain and generates treasure that ramps/color fixes in a pinch.

Hope the suggestions help and best of luck with the casual fun deck idea.

I say cut Sure-Footed Infiltrator, Terror of Mount Velus, and Myr Battlesphere, you can definitely put in better and cheaper CMC cards then these.

You may have too many thopters for Thopter Assembly to be useful unless you have brudiclad out.

You probably don't have enough artifact copying for Powerstone Shard to work. Saheeli, Sublime Artificer, Mirrorworks, Prototype Portal, and even Cogwork Assembler can fill this gap.

Replace Tamiyo's Journal with Goblin Assault unless you use the search ability.

Feldon of the Third Path and Faerie Artisans may help.

Having a Briarbridge Patrol with a Tamiyo's Journal would indeed increase board presence, not a bad idea, but just not too sure about how that would affect the game speed with having to sacrifice 3 clues constantly, when Mechanized Production hits the field that is the win condition so you kind of want to slow down and stop sacrificing at that point and just protect it as much as possible. Rashmi, Eternities Crafter can kind of do the same thing, but I guess for consistency Briarbridge Patrol is better in that sense

If we're talking overly expensive colorless tutors, Tamiyo's Journal and Citanul Flute seem worth mentioning as well. Cards I've used to good effect for cheaper than Ring of Three Wishes would have costed me. Although maybe with Zirda, the Dawnwaker or similar cost reducers you could make that one worth it as well. As is, it's a waste of resources with barely any side synergies to make it better than just 10 mana for any card in your library.

Nice deck! I have a deck that does a similar thing in Malcolm & Akiri. But black also has a lot of fun toys :). I got some cards here that you could consider:

  • Indomitable Creativity: trade in your tokens for something more valuable, while also chaos warping (kinda) a few of your opponent’s expensive threats.
  • Martyr's Bond: great control option if that’s a thing you’re after
  • Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast: diverse card that can be nice if your deck is able to protect planeswalkers. But likely your creatures will be going sideways most of the time…
  • Hidden Stockpile: nice utility card that can give you more bodies to attack with. Perhaps not good enough given your commander doesn't work with tokens...
  • Tamiyo's Journal: did you say clues :)?
  • Herald of Anguish: I love this card and am sad I have no home for it yet. Would be great in this list I think.

For bombs with attack triggers you could consider Balefire Dragon, Drakuseth, Maw of Flames and Etali, Primal Storm.

Hope you like some of them!

Good artifact-based card draw to note:

Skullclamp - the gold-standard for token decks. Legendary power. If you have too many anthems it drops off greatly in power.

Infiltration Lens - it's not awful, but I prefer Rogue's Gloves and Mask of Memory.

Courier's Capsule - much better with heavy graveyard recursion

Idol of Oblivion - the draw is free, which is nice. Very strong for two mana

Tome of Legends - should be excellent since your commander can usually attack with impunity. Bummer it's getting more expensive. It's a good card though so it's unsurprising.

Midnight Clock - this card is fantastic. Secret is getting out so if you're on the fence definitely buy some for your collection. The reprint dropped its price. Also, Eldraine card for the flavor.

Mysterious Tome  Flip - not bad, but we can probably do better

Slate of Ancestry - repeatable, but sometimes unreliable--like if you need to recover from a board wipe. Excellent card but potentially not better than Bident of Thassa, Recon Mission, and Coastal Piracy. Better in decks that don't run Blue. I have it in my Goblin deck.

Trading Post - do it all!

Well of Lost Dreams would be good with your commander, but so are lots of others. Probably not better than other effects in this deck.

Farsight Mask - draws a card for each creature that attacks you, and more. Five mana is a lot though. I think this card is underrated, but you kinda don't want to be attacked in the first place, right? Great on a budget.

Tamiyo's Journal - fantastic for decks that care about the number of artifacts you control. You only have a few of these effects though.

Bolas's Citadel - massive, massive power. Honestly surprised this card isn't more expensive. Might be worth buying just for your collection. Your commander's lifelink can help fuel it. You can also sac faerie tokens as a win-con. Triple-Black isn't effortless to cast, but once you have six mana you could probably swing it.

Book of Rass - kind of a budget Greed. If you were going Artifact-heavy then it might be worth considering.

Coveted Jewel - chaotic and fun. Your flyers can steal it back easily. Like the Monarch mechanic, it can keep the heat off you if your opponents try to steal it from eachother.

Staff of Nin - oh how the mighty have fallen. This card used to be a staple like, six years ago. Not much point in running it in a deck with access to Blue and Black colors. Still, it's an artifact.

The Magic Mirror - Big upside but hard to cast. Bonus points for being an Eldraine card!

I actually have a Shamanic Revelation in my binder. I have many copies of Soul of the Harvest too, but that seems a bit inefficient. (They're good enough to keep in my binder, but not good enough that they ever seem to get used lol) I think I had it in my first version of this deck. I have some auras like Sixth Sense too, but ... not sure how reliable draw that would be.

Another card I have is Greater Good, which might be useful in response to a boardwipe, right? Just sac everything. The discard might be problematic though, unless I'm able to get Emeria Shepherd or Sun Titan into play - then it might be card advantage idk.

As far as artifacts: Tamiyo's Journal is another card I'm considering since it creates clue tokens each upkeep. Got a Mind's Eye too.

Also, I just noticed I actually do have a spare Skullclamp, which is a no-brainer in this deck! I'm so thankful I acquired some of these cards before their prices spiked so much.
