Welcome to the Machine - An Esper artifact EDH

Commander / EDH Artifact WUB (Esper)


My current project. A deck based around ridiculous artifact shenanigans. This deck is mostly combo and part control. Let me know what you think.

Here is an overview of my card choices.

Archaeomancer: Gets back counterspells, tutors, Faith's Reward, Into the Roil

Counterspell, Stoic Rebuttal, Spell Crumple : Hard counters to protect my stuff

Master Transmuter, Kuldotha Forgemaster, and Quicksilver Amulet: Cheat in threats and can do it at instant speed. Transmuter can protect important pieces by bouncing at key moments too

Trinket Mage and Treasure Mage: One finds Sol Ring, Voltaic Key and artifact lands, the other finds bombs and some combo pieces Thopter Assembly, Myr Battlesphere

Fabricate, diabolic revelations, Increasing Ambition, Sphinx Summoner , Rune-Scarred Demon, Tezzeret the Seeker : Tutors - self explanatory

Blightsteel Colossus: Alternate win condition, great Quicksilver Amulet or Master Transmuter target

Deadeye Navigator: An amazing piece in this deck, bounces Archaeomancer, Myr Battlesphere, Sphinx Summoner , Sharuum the Hegemon, Rune-Scarred Demon, Magister Sphinx - combos out with Peregrine Drake for infinite mana

Faith's Reward and Open the Vaults: A little security against board wipes

filigree sage: Combos out with either Training Grounds or Rings of Brighthearth + Gilded Lotus

Grand Architect: Can ramp in early game and combos out with Pili-Pala

Time Sieve : Who doesn't like extra turns? Combos out with Thopter Assembly and can combo out with Myr Battlesphere with some help

Leonin Abunas: Hexproof on most of my stuff? Sounds good.

Mindslaver: Messing with my opponent's turn sounds fun. With enough mana, bounce effects and Sharuum it can combo out

Sphinx of Magosi: Card draw and a beater, can combo out with infinite mana and Laboratory Maniac

Leyline of Anticipation: All the shenanigans, none of the timing restriction!

Phyrexian Metamorph: It's anything you want it to be. Removal of the enemy commander? Done! Want 2 Sol Rings? Done! Want more Blightsteel Colossus goodness? Done!

Unwinding Clock: Master Transmuter every turn? Sounds good.

Voltaic Key: More Gilded Lotus, Master Transmuter and Quicksilver Amulet activations sounds good. Also combos out with Rings of Brighthearth and Gilded Lotus

Training Grounds: Brings down activation costs for Filigree Sages, Ethersworn Adjudicator and Deadeye Navigator. Goes infinite with Filigree Sages and Gilded Lotus.

Venser, the Sojourner, Deadeye Navigator and Conjurer's Closet: Keep the ETB abilities coming!

Rings of Brighthearth: Copying planeswalkers abilities for 2 colorless is awesome. Combos out with Filigree Sages or Voltaic Key plus Gilded Lotus

Feel free to ask me any questions you would like about my card choices. I'm always open to suggestions.
