Artifact creature token generator in blue

Commander Deck Help forum

I am building Drafna, Founder of Lat-Nam as my commander. I wanted to know any good creature token maker. So far I have Threefold Thunderhulk ,Myr Battlesphere , Sai, Master Thopterist and Golem Foundry.

I'd highly recommend Faerie Artisans. I've used it in a couple of token decks that utilized Blue (Adrix and Nev, & Brudiclad). It's pretty nifty to be able to "steal" opponents' creatures, especially those with ETB effects. Since you get a temporary copy of whatever gets played, it isn't as "feels bad" as outright stealing a creature.

I think the temporary nature of the copies also allows for some politicking along the lines of "If you have a creature with ETB removal, I can help you remove an additional target with my copy". Definitely a card that scales well to whatever the rest of the table is playing. Also all of the token copies are artifacts.

It's been reprinted recently, so it should be fairly budget now compared to a couple of years ago.

If you're going to cast a lot of non-creature artifacts, Chrome Host Seedshark could be nifty

Golem foundry is pretty good I personally use the blinkmoth urn myr propagator combo and that can be inserted into any color artifact Token generator deck

As long as you have enough artifact creatures in the deck, Prototype Portal can generate copies of any of them. I usually use it to copy artifact lands and mana rocks for repeatable ramp, but it's really nice to be able to crank out a Master of Etherium once a turn.

Soul Foundry is the creature version of Prototype Portal. Both could be good but generally best with low cmc decks.

Mirrodin Besieged, Thopter Spy Network, and Sharding Sphinx are all good options depending on what direction you take the deck.
