This is...weird. The tension of this spell is
that you want to have large nonartifact spells
to cast with it (like Eldrazi or colored bombs),
but Improvise asks for artifacts. The upside is
undeniable, especially if you're coupling
artifacts with colorless Eldrazi or
planeswalkers, but it asks for a lot in
Inspiring Statuary has potential, but it's a
weird card to try and build around, especially
since it does little on its own. It seems like
it's most at home if you have a slew of artifact
token generators and spells to cast using them.
I can see the upside, but it's more untapped
potential than anything else.
This card promises some pretty crazy things.
Warp World for three mana? Time Stretch for two?
Entwined Temporal Cascade with a seven-mana
discount? All as long as you play enough
artifacts. The nature of casual Magic and
Commander means that you could simply play mana
artifacts and accelerate into such craziness,
but the Statuary gives an extra dimension to
cards like Nuisance Engine and Sharding Sphinx,
and that's a good thing - Magic is much more fun
when it's about more than just numbers.
