This was the first EDH I ever built back about 5 years ago, me and her had some good runs but in the end I dismantled her and she was lost to our endless boxes of cards. I moved on to a Rhys the Redeemed deck for most of those 5 years. Anywho I finally got my hands on another Sharuum the Hegemon and well, it looks even better then the original, though I’m sorta sad I don’t have the From the Vaults: Legends Sharuum I’m still glad I could rebuild this deck.
As the General, obviously.
Caves of Koilos
Vault of Whispers
More or less what you would expect from a W/U/B Artifact General, hopefully I can pull a Watery Grave or a Godless Shrine. Both would be ideal but you know.
Disciple of the Vault
Master of Etherium
Sphinx of the Steel Wind
Alright, now for my creature base I tried to keep towards cheapish gimicky cards such as
just cause I can get little guys out that I can sacrifice or chump block with. But I’m also running all of the Esper Sphinx cards. I love
Gideon, Champion of Justice
Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas
Venser, the Sojourner
Venser and Tezzeret make perfect sense right? Now I bet you’re curious as to that Gideon.. I sort of as well. I just threw it in the deck and he doesn’t necessarily hurt it or slow it down, especially once I start taking multiple turns.
Nothing too fancy here, the Mind Unbound was originally for my Lazav EDH and will probably go there once I manage to pry it from this decklist, but at the same time it’s such a good card for once I take multiple turns.
Again, nothing too fancy. Twincast is really just in the deck to trail an opponents Timewarp, or Explosive Vegetation.
Open the Vaults
Well Trade Secrets is in the deck to combo with Quicken, and any of my board wipes as well. I sort of want to get a Wrath of God or Damnation, or both but seeing as how Damnation is extremely up there in price I’m doubtful on that.
Obelisk of Esper
Rings of Brighthearth
Font of Mythos
What would an Artifact deck be without Artifacts? Bad, that’s what the correct answer is. But seriously, I’m running the Mindslavor/Quicken/Trade Secrets combo. It’s super mean. Rings of Brightheath on Tezzeret, or Venser, or even Mindslavor. Time Sieve for obvious reasons and let me take a billion turns.
Well that’s my Sharuum for now, I’ll update the deck as I go along and post how well the deck does in tournaments.
