Thopter Assembly

Artifact Creature — Thopter


At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control no Thopters other than Thopter Assembly, return Thopter Assembly to its owner's hand and create five 1/1 colorless Thopter artifact creature tokens with flying.

Not to mention other effects that create artifact tokens or artifact creature tokens, and since it's stated as "Tap an untapped artifact" you can tap them as though they had haste. For example, Thopter Assembly becomes "Create 5 artifact tokens with ": Add ". This also isn't mentioning things becoming artifacts using Mycosynth Lattice .

Sharding Sphinx , Thopter Assembly and Whirler Rogue will all give you some Thopter tokens to have as flying fodder.

Hangarback Walker will make a bunch of artifact tokens on death.

Sai, Master Thopterist will get you a Thopter each time you cast an artifact spell.

Cultivator of Blades and Marionette Master both make servo tokens and have some nice added effects on them.

Alright hkhssweiss, so I have updated and edited my deck a bit, and I wanted to see what you thought. Here are the cards I took out:

And these are the cards I put in:

Anyway, if you could tell me what you think, that would be great. And again, thanks for all of your help hkhssweiss!

Yeah I would cut those cards, as the main point of the deck by what you are doing so far is to play cards from your opponent. Having an artifact sub theme is good, but in the way in having mana and accelerating your boardstate. You can also add in a Master Transmuter to protect or cheat out your artifacts as well.

With paradox engine out on the field you can gain an incredible amount of mana, so I would focus on tutors as well as card advantage. Engines like Mystic Remora as well as Necropotence will be great, the latter being said though would require a good mana base to get the triple black efficiently. Cantrips are also good for filtering and card draw, some staples include Ponder , Preordain , Brainstorm for the basic one drop spells. If you don't like one shot cards than run more effects like Windfall to refill your hand.

Some additional cards that would be great for Sen are also cards like Delay , Remand , Unsubstantiate , Evacuation , Hurkyl's Recall , Snap . All of these types of cards allow you to remove threats and play them again when you take control of their hands.

For recursion based cards you also have cards like Argivian Find , Argivian Archaeologist , Hannah, Ship's Navigator, Faith's Reward in the case of people popping everything or preventative measures. You can also consider a subtheme of adding in planeswalker, as they are generally hard to deal with, and especially with the next set coming out, there are plenty of great choices to choose from.

Here are a list of cards you can consider cutting in my opinion:

Hope that helps!

A nice trick you can pull with monocoloured decks is swapping out all of your Mountains for Snow-Covered Mountain s and then making room for Scrying Sheets . It can also pick up the Coldsteel Heart you're already running, meaning there's a little card advantage it can eke out for you every now and then. Mouth of Ronom and Skred might also be worthy inclusions if you go that route.

Some other intriguing ways for you to score a lot of tokens include Thopter Assembly , Lightning Coils and Retrofitter Foundry - even if you keep ditching the tokens immediately, those comes-into-play triggers will add up!

my only regret is that I have but one upvote to give.

possible suggestions:

Goblinslide - makes tokens for casting non-creature spells

Mirari - cast things again

Goblin Warrens - sac 2, make 3? with etb triggers? seems legit.

Pentavus turns into an etb trigger

Spawning Pit lets you lose only half your tokens to a board wipe, but they come back as 2/2s

Thopter Assembly becomes stupidly good if you can get rid of thopters fast enough.

I'm thinking about building an EDH deck around the combo of Vela the Night-Clad (the commander), Time Sieve , and Thopter Assembly . Time Sieve + Thopter Assembly gets you infinite turns, add Vela the Night-Clad to the mix and all the sacrificing kills all your opponents. What do you think? Is this a practical idea or is it not worth pursuing?

chromiumthemutable Thanks for your suggestions. They could be useful for generic Yennett decks but are not suitable for my deck for the following reasons:

1) This is a creatureless deck, and being creatureless is a key component of my combo. So running Grozoth , Thopter Assembly or any other creatures for that matter, is certainly not within my considerations.

2) I'm currently only running one 9 CMC spell in the deck (i.e. Expropriate ) and in order to synergize with Yennett's ability, we would want to tutor/manipulate the card to the top of the library, and not tutor into my hand.

3) The 9 CMC cards you suggested are fun cards but don't fit the theme of the deck. Sphinx of the Steel Wind is 8 CMC though.

I invite you to go through my Primer to gain a better understanding of the deck concept. I'd love to hear your suggestions thereafter! Looking forward to them. Cheers!
