Sacrifice an artifact. If you do, search your library for an artifact card. If that card's converted mana cost is less than or equal to the sacrificed artifact's converted mana cost, put it onto the battlefield. If it's greater, you may pay , where X is the difference. If you do, put it onto the battlefield. If you don't, put it into its owner's graveyard. Then shuffle your library.

Transmute Artifact Discussion
3 months ago
Transmute Artifact and Reshape are both great! The only reason I didn't include them (except price for Transmute Artifact ) is because I'm trying to not rely too much on tutors. Maybe I could replace Tribute Mage but I don't like the idea of needing an artifact in play for tutoring... It's definitely something worth testing.

I recently acquired Copy Artifact and the somehow costier Transmute Artifact for one of my other decks and am certainly considering to implement both in my list. Same goes for Reshape , they utility is just awesome.

I'd also recommend some good Shapeshifter cards, so you have things to do/find with these cards even without the Nexus. Maybe Altered Ego, Chameleon Colossus, Crib Swap, Duplicant, Evil Twin, Masked Vandal, Unsettled Mariner, and definitely Mirror Entity and Realmwalker. Morphon himself is also a good include.
Sounds like a fun idea!

First off, thanks so much for the inspiration! I've built a similar deck of my own, because I love lich effects, and I'm really happy with how it turned out, it's a huge flavor win for me. I do have some qualms with some of the choices you have here. Namely, it feels like trying to storm off with Aetherflux Reservoirin this deck is a shaky wincon. Yes, you do have the big mana producers, but being a four color deck it seems like you wouldn't be able to reliably cast a lot of spells given that they almost all just make one color. To me, it seems like a better idea to funnel that big mana into an Exsanguinateor Torment of Hailfire Cheesy I know, but it seems to be much more reliable.
I also wonder about cards like Act of Authority. If your opponents ever get to use it and the lich is out, you are totally screwed. Martyr of Sands also seems like a strange choice in a four color deck. Do you reliably have enough white cards in hand for that pay off?
Personally, I'm running Ad Nauseam and Peer into the Abyss as my main sources of gross card draw. After that, all you need is a Cadaverous Bloom and one of the aforementioned wincons to seal the deal. Ad Naus combos really nicely with Lich also, since you are unaffected by life gain. I think that changing the wincon frees up a lot of spots in this deck. You can replace Fabricate and Transmute Artifact with more general tutors. But that's just my two cents.

That was an early effort. But with Tezz being a tutor in a can, maybe it just need a control shell to buy the time needed to put them together. I was using jank like Transmute Artifact and Reshape but Tezz may be the best option. And a potential toolbox suite as well.

I like. And Shuko is cheap enough to get off Transmute Artifact or Reshape. Again, this is a one-meets-two combo which is difficult to assemble with consistency. Hence moving Colossus to a control shell. Make him a one card combo rather than force one-meets-two (what is classically called Splinter Twinning?). Cephalid Illusionist does not have that one card combo potential. Not to my awareness.

DeinoStinkus See how it goes. I tried to use a similar tactic in using Tinker, Transmute Artifact, and Reshape to put Time Vault and Manifold Key together. It was clunky but I should revisit. I haven’t been able to put together a true one-meets-two combo deck in the format so far. Let me know how it works out for you.
