Trigorn, Citizen Assembler (sorry, cant get the hyperlink to work https://imgur.com/rJscTly) was one that I liked enough to make into a card template later so he seems perfect for this challenge.

Trigorn, Etherium Weaver

Legendary Artifact Creature - Construct

Whenever you cast a creature spell for the first time each turn, create an Etherium Cell.

Whenever you cast a creature spell, if only mana from an artifact source was spent to cast it, copy that spell.


I'm so glad ive gotten another chance to use Etherium Cells, I love the flavour of them and theyve only been used in Tezzeret the Schemer as far as I'm aware.

This was a pretty cool challenge, either repeat for create another card that uses etherium cells

Thank you for the suggestions! A lot of them I will add to the deck when I get the time. And I’ll check out your list for ideas.

You don’t think the Ensoul Artifact effects are good?

I put Ravenform in mostly to hit my buddy’s The Great Henge (that card kicks my ass) and his sons equipment deck. What are good artifact removal options for commander?

Tezzeret the Schemer is a pet card of mine, I used to play a deck with it when Magic Duels was a thing. I’m fond of the card but I could see cutting it.

Hey! Maybe Thalisse, Reverent Medium and Blind Obedience should be in? I'd also recommend Favorable Winds over Empyrean Eagle or Thunderclap Wyvern since it's an enchantment. Gravitational Shift can be a game-ender, too, and Throne of the God-Pharaoh quadruples your combat damage.

I haven't actually built this in paper, but I brewed up an Alela deck a few months ago, so this might function as a list of cards to consider: Alela fun stuff

Where I might make cuts: Ravenform
Tezzeret's Touch and Ensoul Artifact
Witching Well
Tezzeret the Schemer
Fabricate since you don't have very powerful artifacts to look for
Sharuum the Hegemon
Animating Faerie

I think you need to consider some early Creatures. Otherwise you will be dead, before your Planeswalkers can hit the field.

There are some excellent Artifact Creatures like Scrapheap Scrounger and Foundry Inspector that can Crew Heart of Kiran and also help in other ways.

Ten Planeswalkers are a lot for any deck, unless it is Superfriends.

I would get rid of Tezzeret the Schemer as he is GREAT for ramp, but this deck doesn't seem to be in desperate need of that.

In his place I would think about Ensoul Artifact

I know it's a cliché, but it's just that good. Especially on your Darksteel Citadel

Swapping a Swamp for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth would also be a good idea.

I always throw one Arch of Orazca into my Pioneer decks. It can really help in the late game. Note that lands are also permanents. I'd take out an Island for that.

Finally, Mutavault can get you out of trouble, particularly if you need extra Crew, or to protect a Planeswalker.

Hope that helps.

As for cards to remove, though, I would suggest removing cards that try to take your deck in a different direction. If you want to go all in on the combo, then this is what I'd suggest. Crypt Ghast can go. Combo doesn't need extort to win, and you don't have many swamps. Tezzeret the Schemer is even worse ramp. Athreos, God of Passage actually doesn't help your combo, it hurts it by giving control to your opponents. Better to just have more tutors. Aether Gale and Depths of Desire don't do much to support your gameplan, so I'd toss them. It's good to interact with opponents, but if your deck can win without caring what anyone else is doing, that's a good enough reason to focus your deck on protecting your game plan instead of interaction. After all, there's no need to interact with an opponent you can kill.

Grubbernaut, thanks a lot! I really liked the idea of putting Stonecoil Serpent , Fabled Passage and Animating Faerie ... I'll try these ones in place of Tezzeret the Schemer , Prakhata Pillar-Bug and Evolving Wilds .

JARTLEONHART on How to equip Helm of …

3 years ago

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:

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.
