@ coyotemoon722:

And just how are you getting this Darksteel Colossus or Inkwell Leviathan out with Arcum? He forces a player to sac target artifact CREATURE and lets them replace it with a NON-CREATURE artifact. So unless you can turn artifact creatures in your deck into non-creature artifacts your suggestion fails to work.

You may be able to kill a Darksteel Colossus, but there's a chance that you'll give them a Darksteel Forge or something similarly bad for you like Akroma's Memorial.

I agree, your own Ornithopters are the best thing to kill.

Stuck him in a Thopter Foundry deck, and he works wonders. The Thopter Foundry+Sword of the Meek combo is easy enough to get out, but he can get the Sword should you be unable to find it, or search for a Krark-Clan Ironworks for an infinite life/mana/thopters combo. With a Time Sieve on the field you get infinite turns too. Absolutely spectacular, it's like having a little bit of Tezzeret without having to build up for the tutor cost.

Thran Forge, Mycosynth Lattice, or the aforementioned Neurok Transmuter to pick off your opponent's creatures at will. Unless they're playing a dedicated artifact deck they're unlikely to put much better stuff out.
I am upset that they didn't make an opposing card for Sorine Relicbane though, preferably in red.

I use this guy as my EDH general. Things get insane quickly.

T4: Play Arcum.
T5: Sac an artifact creature to bring out Myr Turbine for artifact creatures every turn.
T6: Darksteel Forge (Or this out first if someone's playing red)

etc. Or I can be cruel and just play Myr Incubator, Darksteel Forge, and Coat of Arms.

I find his flavor text very ironic.

With Neurok Transmuter you can kill opposing creatures at will. Or assemble Helm of Kaldra and its ilk with your disposable Ornithopters.

Oh AWESOME idea come to my mind with this adorable poor oldman...second turn lightning greaves and in the fourth round i have one and unique Darksteel forge in my field.haahahah...."I feel no pain".

Nucleon, you don't know the half of it. I've put together an Arcum EDH deck that can literally play every card in the deck by turn 7 or quicker (turn 6 in the goldfish match, but against real opponents you probably want to spend a turn fetching up some protection for him, like a Swiftfoot Boots). The key combo is Arcum, Thornbite Staff, Summoning Station, and Mycosynth Lattice (all of which can be fetched up by Arcum, of course). Tap the Summoning Station to make a Pincher, and it's an artifact due to Mycosynth, so eligible for sacrifice. Tap Arcum and sacrifice the Pincher to fetch up whatever you want, and the Pincher dying triggers the abilities on the Summoning Station and the Staff, untapping both the Station and Arcum. Lather, rinse, repeat.
