Interesting deck idea. If you want to abuse Time Sieve, may I recommend Thopter Assembly?

Time Sieve is one of my all-time favorite magic cards

About the deck, I think you could definite from more threats besides Saga: Feasting Troll King is a classic one.

I feel like you could also reduce the number of Witch's Oven, since you can fetch it with saga (I'd run 3 tops), and maybe replace it with more removal like Fatal Push. It may be too cute but Lonis, Cryptozoologist might benefit from all the cauldron familiar etbs.

About the formatting, I suggest making the deck panels somewhat transparent so you can see the background better. I don't know if you're using a linked style sheet or doing it in the deck editor but the element that descirbes the panels should be .well, #deck-details so you can do something like

#deck-details {
  background: rgba(something);
  border: something;

Changes, 02Nov2021 continued:


Improved mana rocks!: (Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Chromatic Orrery, Mox Opal, Voltaic Key). Little explanation needed here. The key can do more than be a mana rock, but considering how many of my rocks can now make 2+ mana per tapping, that's gonna be a lot of its purpose.

More turns: (Time Sieve, Expropriate). Seems like a better theme to splash in than pillow fort, and both of these cards are also about my main themes: artifact love and theft. Speaking of which...

Artifact love/recursion: (Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge, Tezzeret, Artifice Master, Sai, Master Thopterist, Emry, Lurker of the Loch, Dakkon, Shadow Slayer). This deck loves artifacts. It kinda has to love Tezzeret too as a result.

Your stuff is mine now: (Thief of Sanity, Nightveil Specter, Opposition Agent, Xanathar, Guild Kingpin, Empress Galina). I wanna take your stuff. All of your stuff. And not "until this card leaves the battlefield", either. Once I take it, it's mine. Bonus points for denying you access to them in the first place before making them mine.

Improved Lands: (Urza's Saga, Exotic Orchard, Glimmervoid). Urza's Saga is pretty much the card that made me realize I needed to update this deck.

Other: Fabricate is better than Diabolic Tutor by just about every measure. The only drawback being that it can only get artifacts is practically a moot point in this deck. Lithoform Engine just seems really good in here. I can't wait til I can copy an Expropriate with it... Finally, Paradox Haze cuz I love the way it can interact with not only The Ladies themselves but with Xanathar as well.

If you aren't against an infinite combo as a win condition, I'd suggest adding Thopter Assembly in place of Ethersworn Sphinx. Thopter Assembly + Time Sieve is a notorious infinite-turn combo. Also, Treasure Tokens synergies really nicely with Marionette Master. To double on that front, perhaps a Disciple of the Vault?

You could run some Threats still in line with your them:

Wurmcoil Engine

Kaldra Compleat

Karn, the Great Creator: I love this tool box card but it depends on how people feel about the 10 card sideboard, it isn't officially allowed exactly but cEDH may change that. you can fill the board (10 is generally the accepted number I have seen for the "side") with situationally useful artifacts.

The only other thing I would think of is maybe considering a bit more control like

Dovin's Veto

Render Silent


Swan Song

to give a bit more protection for your strats

Rakdos's Return is always funny but may or may not work here

Sevinne's Reclamation could give some recursion Academy Ruins and Trading Post Too

Aetherflux Reservoir and Time Sieve with Thopter Assembly if you want some combo wombo

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast seems to fit the theme

I am not a fan of the wellsprings, they do fit the them somewhat but can seem dead at times.

I had a couple of others that were in mind but lost them, I will comment if I think of them

multimedia on Alela and her pimped out posse

Hey, with so much equipment consider Puresteel Paladin and Sigarda's Aid to free equip? Grand Architect lets you tap himself and other blue creatures to pay for equip costs or to cast artifacts. Alela and the Faeries she creates are blue. Shimmer Myr lets you cast artifacts at instant speed. Cranial Plating can make Alela because she has flying an attacking threat to do lethal Commander damage.

Grand Architect is good ramp for the Thopter Assembly + Time Sieve extra turn combo. With Alela this combo is lots of Faeries equal to the amount of extra turns you want to take. The win condition is attacking with Faeries at each opponent at each extra turn.

Tap Architect + Alela + 1 Faerie for 6 colorless mana to cast Assembly. Each extra turn Assembly is bounced back to your hand to create 5 artifact Thopters, you then have to cast Assembly again and next you sac those 5 Thopters with Sieve to take an extra turn to repeat. Casting Assembly at each extra turn is what creates the Faeries.

If attacking with Alela and Faerie tokens is something you want to do then because of flying consider Bident of Thassa and Reconnaissance Mission ? These are for repeatable draw which lets you draw for each creature who does combat damage to a player.

Some land upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

I think you're going too heavy into the infinite combo with this list. Cards like Grand Architect just don't do nearly enough without the rest of the combo, additionally I know your update said that you thought Time Sieve wasn't worth but if you want to go infinite its a way better option since you can find it with all the tutors that find the other combo pieces. Also you NEED to be playing Muddle the Mixture . Also also spellskite is just not a good creature in modern anymore it's not really worth a spot in the 75 let alone in the main board. Liliana feels weird in this list as well cause you want to be drawing lots of cards to find your combo, lotv takes you in the opposite direction, that one is kinda 50/50 tho, if you like it its fine.

legendofa on Good sit-and-wait deck?

I just skimmed the decks on your page. For the Hammer Time deck, start with Sigarda's Aid , Steelshaper's Gift , and Stoneforge Mystic for reliability.

There aren't any over-the-top swamp walk creatures aside from Sheoldred, Whispering One , but it looks like a fun casual deck. Mire Boa needs a home in that one, along with a full set of Evil Presence and at least one more Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or more land search cards, like Sylvan Scrying .

High-level Myr/Thopter lives by the Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundry combo, with a side of Time Sieve .
