Captain_Howel on Artifact Deck

8 hours ago

Hey, I know something that could help you a lot: Artifact Lands. There's 6 of them (one for each color and one for colorless), and they're all Pauper-legal. The ones you'd want for this deck are Ancient Den, Great Furnace, Seat of the Synod, and Darksteel Citadel. They'll serve you better than those basic lands you've got, because they contribute to the damage dealt by Reckless Fireweaver and Welding Sparks, and the reduced casting cost of Gearseeker Serpent. You can only use 4 of each, but with a 3-color deck, if you include Darksteel Citadel you've got 16 artifact lands total. Helps a lot for cards with Metalcraft or Affinity for Artifacts (a keyword version of Gearseeker Serpent's casting cost ability).

I don't know what you're trying to do with Fiery Temper there. It's good in a deck with cards with abilities based on discarding from your hand so that you can use its Madness cost, but you don't have any such cards, so you're essentially looking at a downgraded Lightning Bolt. But with an artifact deck, there's a card you can use that beats both of 'em, for only 50 cents more each than Fiery Temper: Galvanic Blast. For the same mana cost you can outpace a burn deck's damage. It's a great card.

This looks amazing.

My only suggestions are the artifact lands.

Vault of Whispers, Ancient Den, Seat of the Synod and Great Furnace.

Hey Valius,

Nice deck. +1. Fellow Arahbo, Roar of the World player, Arahbo, Xeanagos... for Cats

I like the Staff of Domination and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds combo, it's nice that it makes any color, I know you have White Sun's Zenith for to use the mana, but have you thought about Rhonas the Indomitable can just mass pump the entire army (since Arahbo, Roar of the World can only do each cat once. I was trying to do something with Karametra's Acolyte and Temur Sabertooth but might be something there with Selvala, Heart of the Wilds but I dont play too many huge guys in my build, so I might be giving away more draw.

Ancient Den and Tree of Tales very smart with Puresteel Paladin adding them to my 99. Surprised you don't take advantage of Adorned Pouncer, he has double strike built in, would be really cool with the Voltron feel of the deck.

Is there a combo with Fleetfoot Panther that you have. He's definitely good 3/4 for CMC3, but his return ability could be utilized, i've tried looking for some combos but found nothing that is strong enough.

Sabertooth Nishoba is a little surprising, I get your point the built in trample and pro is good, and 8/8 with the pump, but he's still CMC 6 for a 5/5.

Sensei's Divining Top I worry about because it doesn't do anything with Sylvan Library in play, but a CMC1 artifact is good in this artifact centric type build.

Assault Suit also seems high CMC4 and High equip 3 for Haste and +2 only. Would something like Haunted Cloak not be better? and gives trample as well, or does the +2 break its feasability?

Btw, I run Blinkmoth Nexus/Inkmoth Nexus for metalcraft, with Dispatch, if they turn off metalcraft in response to it, you can tap the nexus and use its mana to turn itself into a creature. Same reason I like Ancient Den and Darksteel Citadel, though they are more static.

A few notes:

Seat of the Synod is banned in Modern

Ancient Den is banned in Modern

Some thoughts: I would recommend removing all artifact creatures except Blightsteel Colossus and including 4 copies of it. Replace the artifacts with counter spells and enchantments to control the board. Include 4 copes of Blinkmoth Nexus and Inkmoth Nexus. Also 4 copies of Polymorph.

Why? Because you can turn the Nexus lands into creatures, destroy them with Polymorph and get possible turn 5 Blightsteel Colossus!

If you ever put Unwinding Clock into your main board, I would replace two plains with Ancient Den and Darksteel Citadel.
