Adaptive Automaton Discussion

Rzepkanut Thanks so much for the suggestions. I like the idea of Cathars' Crusade, Metallic Mimic, and Adaptive Automaton, but what would you suggest taking out for them?

First of all, you should probably list this deck as casual, legacy is not the place wor wokf tribal.

Next can I recommend Zada, Hedron Grinder as she combos nicely with Silverfur Partisian.

Also I would consider adding sone more tribal cards, such as Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton and Urza's Incubator.

I like Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund over Wasitora, Nekoru Queen.

I would recommend finding copies of both Obelisk of Urd and Urza's Incubator as well.

I put a lot of stock in Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, Dragonlord's Servant, and Dragonspeaker Shaman too. Pumping all of your guys and making your expensive creatures cost less is paramount in a Tribe like Dragons or Angels.

Taigam, Ojutai Master may not seem too important at a glance, but he's amazing against Control decks when you're going to need every Creature on-board that you can manage. I find that he also makes great Removal bait.

If it were my deck, I'd drop the majority of the Curses ( Curse of Opulence would be the only one I keep) for things like Descendants' Path, Call to the Kindred, Cryptic Gateway, Konda's Banner, and/or Stoneforge Masterwork.

Another quick look through the deck reveals a surprising lack of Crucible of Fire? Unacceptable.

For things to remove, I would drop all of the Curses except Opulence, the Bolas Planeswalkers, Wasitora, Mirrorwing Dragon, Slave of Bolas, Territorial Hellkite, Crosis, Dracogenius, and O-Kagachi. They're all "good" cards, but I don't think this is their proper home.

Nice looking deck friend! Seems like a great upgrade on the precon. I have a few quick suggestions.... Cathars' Crusade looks great to me with so many creatures to trigger Edgar's eminence ability. Odric, Master Tactician and Brutal Hordechief are great cards for controlling the attack phase. Maybe some more card draw engines like Underworld Connections and Graveborn Muse to help keep the juice flowing. Even Queen Marchesa could be a great card for the deck, she even seems kinda vampiric to me somehow. If you need removal Hero's Downfall, Utter End and Vindicate are basically as good as it gets. Metallic Mimic & Adaptive Automaton are easy includes in most all tribal decks. And last but certainly not least Solemn Simulacrum is at its best in non-green decks like this one. Happy gathering!

Hey I like your list! I know you don't have 100 cards yet, but are you building Edgar as either: aggro, control/lifegain, or vampire tribal? I think aggro and tribal can go together, but its hard to do control with aggro.

Some control/lifegain cards you have: Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, Campaign of Vengeance, Death Grasp, Debt to the Deathless, Exsanguinate, Teferi's Protection which are good but I think a better build for Licia, sanguine Tribune .

If you want to be more aggro/vampire tribal I'd focus on these cards: Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Captivating Vampire & Stromkirk Captain (as a 3 mana lords), Metallic Mimic & Adaptive Automaton, Rakish Heir, Vampire Nocturnus (if you make your deck mainly black), Stensia Masquerade, Urza's Incubator/ Herald’s Horn , Obelisk of Urd, Konda's Banner, Door of Destinies, Blade of the Bloodchief, and Shared Animosity (stupid expensive but really powerful) just to name a few!

If you got time, check out my list (I built it aggro/tribal focused) and leave your suggestions! :)

Nice list! When I saw Kindred Boon spoiled I liked the idea of it for tribal, but I thought it was a little too slow - at least I wanted to build an agro vampire tribal deck.

Some other tribal buffs that you could put in: Adaptive Automaton, Obelisk of Urd, Indulgent Aristocrat (vampire specific), Coat of Arms (if it's in your budget and you aren't worried about your opponents benefiting of it).

Nice deck +1. Consider Urza's Incubator, Hazoret's Monument, Adaptive Automaton. Could you review and upvote my Odric, Lunarch Marshall. It's also creature based mostly for casual play. Thanks
