You have Thopter Foundry and Sword of the Meek on the battlefield. You tap four mana and cast a Krark-Clan Ironworks. You sacrifice any two Ornithopter/Mishra's Bauble/Bone Saw/Spidersilk Net for four colorless mana. You use one mana to sacrifice the Sword of the Meek and make a 1/1 Thopter. The Sword of the Meek comes back onto the battlefield. You spend one of the three floating mana to sacrifice it again and make a new 1/1 Thopter and bring the Sword back again. Then you sacrifice the first 1/1 Thopter to the Krark-Clan Ironworks and get another two mana. You then repeat this until you have enough to cast a Whetwheel. Once you have enough mana to pump throgh the Whetwheel you can Mill there entire deck by this turn. You net 2 life, one mana, and one 1/1 Thopter every time you go through the motions.

I use this card in my version of the "well-known" Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundry deck.
Combined with Time Sieve and Disciple of the Vault you are able to make you opponent cry, but if you add Minamo, School at Water's Edge + Tolarian Academy you can crush anyone!
The speed of this combo is ridiculous and of course the effectiveness of it. So far i have been able to deafeat anything with this combo xD

This card brought out the inner Johnny of my friend.

Cheap to cast and use. It is interesting how the 1 life really feels like it could make or break this card.

Works quite nicely with Myr Servitor. So long as you keep one of the little guys in play, you can sacrifice his 'brothers' every turn and get them back again during your next upkeep for free. Potentially 3 Flying creatures for 3 mana every turn - a good deal, I think.

Combined with Time Sieve and Sword of the Meek it have disgusting power...

Here's how you can gain 1 life and put a Thopter token onto the battlefield for each 1 you pay:
1. Cast Thopter Foundry for White or BlackBlue.
2. Cast Sword of the Meek for 2.
3. Pay 1 and sacrifice Sword of the Meek to get a token and return Sword equipped to it.
4. Repeat step 3 until you can't or don't want to spend any more mana.

You can also use this combo with Time Sieve to take as many turns as you like as long as you can afford to spend at least 5 per turn.

A very nice and underrated card.

Can't believe that Krark-Clan Ironworks is not listed here!

This + Sword of the meek + Citanul Hierophants = Infinite 1/1 artifact flyers and infinite life?
is this a (very) good combo? tell me plz

nice with time sieve (endless stream of turns), master of etherium (unbeatable/unbeatable), doubling season (more, untapped tokens), Blinkmoth urn (more mana lol), darksteel forge (what now?), lumengrid sentinel (completely disarm opponent), feedback bolt (boom), and lots of combos with clock of omens!
