[NEO] Containment Construct
Was thinking of previous builds that used Mishra's Workshop and Bazaar of Baghdad.

Saw this and felt like it might just be too much work. Shops generally do not want to spend a turn not building board to instead do something cute and if bazaar is the only discard outlet this feels slow.
I'll admit I like the idea of godhanding a turn 1 bazaar into 2 moxen into this into activating the bazaar and pitching more 0 cost artifacts, but it honestly feels like it might be a worse play than just playing shops and spheres. If you need to draw cards there are plenty of artifacts that do that too. Hell even this guy probably does the job.
Whats with the bankbuster I dont see what that has to do with the post?

@daniel-worobec Someone bought out all the artificer's intuitions out there because of containment construct. There's a combo with it and LED.
Obviously really good but is there a kill?

I think it involves Wishclaw talisman and Tendrils of Agony. This is a legacy deck and I don't really follow that format.

Survival Of The Fittest isn't much of a deck anymore, but this seems great for it. It can be tutored so you don't need to run 4x, lets you pitch hollow ones to survival and still cast them, lets you make land drops when a bazaar is active.
Interesting to note that you MAY exile that card. You may also let it go to the graveyard if it's a Vengevine or a target for Goblin Welder or other.
@botvinik the kill is to generate infinite mana with Elixir of immortality and then Intuition for Ballista
Notable other interactions:
To @Wagner's point, this breaks the symmetry of LED + Echo of Eons. You can stockpile cards if needed (Keeping a Force floating during Echoes seems solid)
This card is functionally similar to Daredevil in the Riddlesmith deck. It might be an upgrade as it is an artifact for Opal and compatible with Lurrus if you are so inclined.
Can't combo with LEDs in Vintage but plenty of restricted artifacts to ramp. Map + Academy + Candelabra for shennanigans? Interesting, at least.
This line would net 1 mana for each Feldon’s Cane in your deck:
UU up front
while Feldon’s Cane == true:
u - discard lotus, get LED
0 - replay lotus and sacrifice for uuu
u - discard LED, get Feldon’s Cane
u - discard Cane get random artifact
1 - replay Feldon’s Cane and LED
u - stack intuition
0 - sacrifice LED for uuu
0 - activate Cane
0 - resolve Intuition for Lotus
On a side note, could LED be unrestricted?
I know this is forum is intended for Vintage, there have been some activity relating to a combo with Legacy. Just for kicks and giggles here is something I have been working on for a while in Legacy that can participate in the combo that some may find interesting if you don't mind if I share:
4x Containment Construct
2x Artificer's Intuition
1x Elixir of Immortality
1x Walking Ballista
4x Salvage Titan
4x Diamond Lion
4x Mystic Forge
4x Echo of Eons
4x Mishra’s Bauble
4x Chalice of the Void
4x Urza’s Saga
4x Ancient Tomb
4x City of Traitors
4x Lion’s Eye Diamond
4x Mox Opal
4x Lotus Petal
The deck I have been working on for the past five years can be found at link text

The card is balanced in belcher.
Ballista is always better because of force of negation right?
If you have elixir of immortality instead of cane you can do basically the same loop in order to gain infinite life at the cost of your hand +6 for mana sources -3 intuition 3 times -3 cast and crack elixir, unless I punted the math, and with infinite life and an elixir of immortality you likely deck your opponent successfully especially with the waning popularity of blightsteel and JTMS.

@botvinik force of negation can stop the loop at any point, but ballista is probably just a more playable card in general.
other options in that role include pyrite spellbomb, or simply getting altar of the brood once and triggering it off the LED/elixir loop to mill the opponent out.
