Yeah, it isn't if you're just going naked Pests. The real fun begins when you include some sacrifice effects in your deck.

Fun with Confusion in the Ranks.

I think it's an OK card... not very efficient, though, at only having the capacity to generate one per turn; If it didn't have to tap, it would probably be a much larger 'nuisance'

Could be good with a Master of Etherium or two on the field =

Anything that can make a steady stream of tokens is playable in my book. Bring on the pest control.

I've used this to generate cheap stuff to devour, and accidentally the other day for an infinity combo with ashnod's altar and dross scorpion to make my glassdust hulk an unblockable beast.

Nuisance Engine+Dross Scorpion+Ashnod's Altar/Krark-Clan Ironworks+anything that triggers when a creature or artifact enters or leaves play. WOOHOO!

@Zacch: they're different. Nuisance Engine is a non-creature artifact, which makes it harder to kill off. Nuisance does not require green mana to cast. And Nuisance produces artifacts as opposed to elves, which can be useful. For instance, Nuisance Engine can feed a Yawgmoth Demon, Imperious Perfect can't.

The cost is not worth it? True if you compare it to Sacred Mesa or Snake Basket. But this engine is one of the cheapest for REUSABLE artifact token generation.

Better than Breeding pit in many cases too.

I use this with Bubble Matrix and Worship. If all your creatures die, make a token so the worship protects you.

I used to use diamond kaleidoscope but this is cheaper, even though you cannot sac them for mana.

Read the card again

"Put a 0/1 colorless Pest artifact creature token onto the battlefield."

The tokens have the creature types of both "pest" and "artifact".

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
