Adaptive Automaton Discussion

Joumba on Gishath's Dinosaur Time

Nice budget deck mate. Don't know if you've seen this card, Pyrohemia, but it does wonder with the enrage ability. Also, you might want to include some fantastic staples that mana permits, such as Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares for target removal, and Wrath of God for wiping a ugly board. Lastly, some more awesome tribal artifact that might be to your liking; Obelisk of Urd, Konda's Banner and Adaptive Automaton. Hope you find those helpful!

Yo this deck is awesome! Loving it! Door of Destinies is similar to coat of arms but a bit cheaper. Also FYI a tribal deck just has to be focused on a creature type, doesn't necessarily require buffs for them. I know they're more expensive but Adaptive Automaton or Metallic Mimic buff your bats even more!

I'd say you have a lot of creatures and a bit heavy on the land (you could slim down mountains since you don't have much red in the deck currently). You have a half human/half angel theme going so you rock that if you'd like, but if the end goal is angels, make the focus angels. Slim down some of the filler humans and maybe replace some with tribal boosters like Adaptive Automaton, Metallic Mimic, Obelisk of Urd, Cryptic Gateway, Belbe's Portal to name a bunch. Or if you just want some other good angels, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is just fantastic. If you want to go battle heavy, Aurelia, the Warleader or Anya, Merciless Angel are both solid choices. Maybe a few boardwipes since you can protect your creatures like Wrath of God. Or you could add some just EDH staples like Solemn Simulacrum or Lightning Greaves. Hope this helps! Pick anything you like, you don't need to throw all of this in your deck but it gives you an idea of what else is out there!

(Plus you might want to remove Karakas since it's banned in EDH)

skroes I've been actually been studying your build as well and making changes to mine. I actually really want to thank you for sharing your list with me. I've taken mine to game nights and it's been doing well with some inspiration from you, so thanks!

SilentNSly Those additions seem really effective if you were going wide. Maybe I'll look at it in another build. I'm really pushing the counter addition strategies. Thanks for those suggestions! They do seem like additional Butcher of Malakir basically haha

gorillacus Thank you for the suggestion! I've been contemplating Metallic Mimic for a while. I specifically like Adaptive Automaton for the extra 1 toughness and its a static effect. Also, its more expensive since it's still in standard, but maybe after it goes down? I'll have to try it.

wereotter I do like and I have tried Shadow Alley Denizen, but I'm not sure what to take out. What would you suggest? Also, I'll have to try Crib Swap for removal! I run pretty well on removal already and the orzhov removal I play allows me to target nonland permanents so that helps for utility. How has it worked for you?

Thank you to all who have looked at this list and helped me improve it. I've been getting a lot of help from LGS as well but I really appreciate everyone's time! Thanks again!

Cool deck. I like illusions too, I have been trying to get it to work for a while. I think that you might want to take out the Chronozoas and Anticipates for Jace's Phantasm and Krovikan Mist, as they are evasive beaters, and they fill oit the curve, and then a playset of Adaptive Automaton, because it is another lord, and tribal decks generally want as many lords as possible. Also, I think that you want Mana Leak over Rune Snag, because you probably won't actually get any others in your graveyard, so I think that it is just better, but not majorly so. Anyway, aside from that, sweet deck, definitely +1 from me :)

Could try Coat of Arms, Adaptive Automaton,Obelisk of Urd,Quicksilver Amulet and Urza's Incubator.

Lord effects + cost reduction + cheating stuff into play sounds pretty good =)

CrazedGinger on How etb triggers interact with ...

I've seen similar questions to mine but I just need clarification. Assume I have a Vildin-Pack Alpha, Temur Ascendancy, and an Adaptive Automaton(werewolf) or Metallic Mimic on the battlefield at the same time. I cast Kruin Outlaw  Flip, she flips become Terror of Kruin Pass  Flip. Do I draw a card? Would the outcome be different if it was a Mondronen Shaman  Flip etb but not flipping?
