PostSubject: ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL   Thu Aug 11, 2011 1:54 am

Wow, have had the Shirei deck for an entire week and I'm already itching to make another. I've tackled my favorite theme of "recursion", so now I need to make an artifact/artifact creature themed deck! Sharuum seems like the popular choice for that kind of thing, but I've decided to go a simpler route and do Memnarch. I've been tinkering with it, and could use some input. Hope I get around to being excited about something that isn't mono-colored.....

General: Memnarch

Lands: 33
1 Phyrexia's Core
1 Seat of the Synod
1 Darksteel Citadel
1 Urza's Factory
1 Urza's Mine
1 Urza's Power Plant
1 Urza's Tower
1 Reliquary Tower
1 Stalking Stones
1 Dread Statuary
1 Blinkmoth Nexus
1 Inkmoth Nexus
1 Academy Ruins
1 Mishra's Factory
19 Island

Creatures: 24
1 Memnarch
1 Karn, Silver Golem
1 Mycosynth Golem
1 Treasure Mage
1 Master Transmuter
1 Master of Etherium
1 Blightsteel Colossus
1 Wurmcoil Engine
1 Lodestone Golem
1 Grand Architect
1 Arcum Dagsson
1 Vedalken Engineer
1 Vedalken Archmage
1 Sundering Titan
1 Etherium Sculptor
1 Phyrexian Metamorph
1 Steel Overseer
1 Steel Hellkite
1 Duplicant
1 Platinum Angel
1 Solemn Simulacrum
1 Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
1 Voltaic Construct
1 Neurok Transmuter

Artifacts: 21
1 Mycosynth Lattice
1 Voltaic Key
1 Thran Dynamo
1 Sol Ring
1 Grim Monolith
1 Darksteel Forge
1 Darksteel Ingot
1 Darksteel Plate
1 Vedalken Shackles
1 Vedalken Orrery
1 Sculpting Steel
1 Mimic Vat
1 Lightning Greaves
1 Sensei's Divining Top
1 Planar Portal
1 Basalt Monolith
1 Gilded Lotus
1 Unwinding Clock
1 Neurok Stealthsuit
1 Liquimetal Coating
1 Spine of Ish Sah

Enchantments: 4
1 Power Artifact
1 Animate Artifact
1 March of the Machines
1 Training Grounds

Instants/Sorceries: 14
1 Mind Spring
1 Blue Sun's Zenith
1 Shape Anew
1 Thoughtcast
1 Fabricate
1 Stoic Rebuttal
1 Counterspell
1 Cryptic Command
1 Beacon of Tomorrows
1 Evacuation
1 Muddle the Mixture
1 Argivian Restoration
1 Forbid
1 Reconstruction

Planeswalkers: 4
Karn Liberated
Jace Beleren
Jace, Memory Adept
Tezzeret the Seeker

Well.....the goal here is to "go infinite" with my mana and do silly things. Ideally going infinite mana with mycosynth lattice on the board so I'd own everything. Forever. It's either this or Jhoria U/R, and I'm not so confident with how that one is turning out, even though Suspend shenanigans are hilarious. Well....and angel tribal with Jenara at the helm......

Must has Blinkmoth Infusion. I personally loathe art-ee-fact decks because it elicits groans from most everyone; however, mono-color is a lot less threatening. There are many many blue cards that support the artifact theme, including artificer's intuition, but that requires a lot more 1 or 0 cost artifacts to justify. Drain Power might be worth checking out as you don't need any colored mana for the majority of your stuff. Soldevi Machinist might be worth a look too since you are already running vedalken engineer. Guantlet of Power, or at the very least, Caged Sun, belongs in this deck. I think its very strong initially, if you are looking for any cards let me know! Good luck with your deck!

Thanks for the tips Jake, though this deck is going to....take a good deal longer to make (Grim Monolith, you are not economical in any sense of the word.) What I have off the top of my head goes like:
Phyrexia's Core
Seat of the Synod
Dread Statuary
Stalking Stones
Inkmoth Nexus
Mishra's Factory
Treasure Mage
Master Transmuter
Master of Etherium
Lodestone Golem
Etherium Sculptor
Phyrexian Metamorph
Steel Overseer
Solemn Simulacrum
Voltaic Key
Darksteel Ingot
Darksteel Plate
Neurok Stealthsuit
March of the Machines
Blue Sun's Zenith
Stoic Rebuttal
Argivian Restoration
Karn Liberated
Jace, Memory Adept
Tezzeret the Seeker

Now I'm looking at stuff, and I'm tempted to replace Jace 3.0 with Future Sight or Magus of the Future. I know he's an extra draw a turn that exiles potential threats, but I like the idea of going "Whoops, Power Artifact on Basalt Monolith, let me reveal and play until I hit a counterspell, then just let everyone sit there and look at it."
