Quote from TylerStegman »So how about the new arcum's astrolabe? Yeah we have to run snow Mana but it is a one Mana prophetic prism
Quote from Snookumz »Tap the citidal and do 10? Faith’s reward and do it again it’s an engine itself. It shouldn’t be shrugged off
Quote from Snookumz »Are people not going crazy over Bolas Citidal for eggs? I think it could be a new inclusion.
Quote from mr_scrambles »The reason pyrite is preferred is because in a pure combo deck like Eggs typically is, it incorporates a win condition without having to make the combo more clumsy, smoothly incorporating itself without being caught in your hand or feeling clunky, like a fireball-style win condition or Emrakul. The biggest reason people would play Banefire or Emrakul is because Pyrite is hard to win with on Magic Online.

1. Although Whir does not net mana like reshape, mid combo it essentially reads 0: add a lotus to your graveyard.
2. Although the artifact intereacting lands are interesting, not being able to thin your deck more with GQ could hurt wiff percentages in the combo.

Here is my take on this version.
Quote from Noct »
I don't like having to find room for a sac outlet that doesn't do much, sure, you'll potentially have infinite 1/1s and infinite life but unless you have your Academy Ruins in play already you can't attack with them without drawing out. I think that if you want to go the sac outlet route in order to run Ichor Wellspring or Terrarion, that Grinding Station is better. Now if there was a haste source or a way to not draw out, then it would be a maindeck backup win.
I would definitely recommend running fetches or basics over those non-basics, makes the combo cleaner.
I think in a lot of ways you are playing with very powerful effects but I'm in favor of running as few cards outside the direct combo as possible and you seem to have a lot.
Tezzeret the Seeker is a neat way to think of interaction with Faith's Reward, but because it cost 3UU we can't play it until we are already comboing where as the other tutors can help with setup.
