Thopter Spy Network

Enchantment

At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control an artifact, create a 1/1 colourless Thopter artifact creature token with flying.

Whenever one or more artifact creatures you control deals combat damage to a player, draw a card.

I would cut Thopter Spy Network and add Efficient Construction it should create more tokens, maybe 2-3 per turn rather than one on upkeep, also if there is a bird wipe and you have no artifacts Thopter won’t trigger, whereas after a wipe with efficient construction it would help speed up the rebuild of a board state.

I’m working on a build too, if you want to take a look :)

Ha, yep I agree on Chandra. There may be more powerful walkers, but she does 3 really useful and unique things, and I definitely have decks that can use each mode depending on the board, so she's almost always the card you want to draw.

Honestly, I've never found a home for Flux Channeler but I keep trying : ) Just being a creature in your noncreature deck makes it tough. I just feel like there has to be a way to break it with walkers and cherrios, but I haven't wrapped my head around how to do it yet.

I also wonder if Saheeli could work with a Emry, Lurker of the Loch build. I used to have a Emry deck that used recurring Aether Spellbomb to great effect, and you could use that spellbomb as a Saheeli target too.

Or, there is also Curiosity effects. Thopter Spy Network might be really nice with Saheeli's minus ability.

Ha, I feel like there are a lot of options, and they all seem pretty decent : )

As far as cuts go:

Astral Cornucopia is a possible cut. I'd rather see a Talisman of Dominance, honestly, since it's only 2 CMC. And, if you're spending 6 mana on a ramp rock (that can only do 1 color in a 4c deck...) that's probably not the best use of the mana.

Similarly, Empowered Autogenerator doesn't look very attractive as a ramp piece. It's just too slow at 4 CMC, and it's one color only in a 4c deck :(

Platinum Angel is a bit of a trap - for 7 mana, there are lots of ways to win, not just "not lose".

Wishclaw Talisman isn't really for this deck IMO - it is hard to make it work in my Esper blink deck which it's basically made for, let alone here.

Spine of Ish Sah - another one I messed with in my esper blink - basically same as platinum angel; if you're spending 7 mana, you can actually win, not just break a thing.

I think if you cut any/all of these and replaced them with 2 CMC multicolor ramp rocks such as talismans or signets, you'd see a significant improvement in your ability to play your commander on curve.

A couple other things:

Thopter Spy Network only one card and one Thopter per turn. Reconnaissance Mission is I think a bit better for draw, just depends on whether you need the creatures.

Training Grounds would be great here.

Wash nooooo!

: ) But seriously, looks like a fun deck. If you have enough artifacts Thopter Spy Network could be really good, and maybe Duelist's Heritage Oh and also Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar

I typically go for Zombies as they are represented very well in both colors, but a solid token creator outside of that tribe is Bloodline Keeper  Flip.

Necromaster Dragon is a fun one.

Reef Worm is a good replayable idea.

Thopter Spy Network

There are a few Planeswalkers who create tokens, also. Probably my personal favorite to do so with is Ashiok, Nightmare Muse because that token is absolutely devastating, especially if you manage vigilance on it somehow.


There are 635 cards listed on Gatherer within and that make creature tokens. Have fun!

The single best "mass sacrifice" concept in the game is Gravecrawler to Phyrexian Altar, or to anything that produces colored mana. If your mana is colorless, you can adjust this with filters.

Yutani, Breath of Life

Legendary Creature - Avatar

Whenever two or more of the same creature token would enter the battlefield under your control, you may instead have only one enter. If you do, it enters the battlefield with an additional number of +1/+1 counters equal to the total amount of tokens that didn't enter the battlefield with it.

, : For each creature you control, create a token copy of it.

5/4


So. Hordeling Outburst. Rather than creating three 1/1 red Goblin creature tokens, you may create one 1/1 that enters with two +1/+1 counters, so a 3/3 token.


Ninja'd. See above.
