Blightsteel Colossus

Artifact Creature — Golem

Trample, infect

Blightsteel Colossus is indestructible.

If Blightsteel Colossus would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, reveal Blightsteel Colossus and shuffle it into its owner's library instead.

Cutting lands is good and fun until you get your expectations subverted and got stuck with 3 lands the whole game. My opinion is a deck has to have around half its card dedicated to mana producing (lands, rocks, etc). As it is you are sitting at 43(35 lands and 8 mana rocks) and I'd strongly suggest you don't cut more. Keep in mind that Jhoira is relatively high-priority commander for Doom Blade and yolo casting her on turn 3 and expecting nothing happens to her so you can double suspend is either a pipe dream or an indication you are playing against beginners.

Also I think you could use a bit more card draw in the deck as I counted 5 or so spells. Maybe add Combustible Gearhulk in the place of that 8/8 Theros kraken.

Otherwise good deck. Cheers!

(I'd also run Obliterate with some indestructible bois like both Ulamogs, Darksteel Colossus , Blightsteel Colossus and the like, but its not for everyone's taste)

Mask of Avacyn for Lightning Greaves . Depending on your playgroup you might want to cut Blightsteel Colossus . Also add maybe at least 7 Mountains

In reference to the last paragraph of your description; why label the deck as a primer if you are not going to write a primer? Especially with some rather controversial choices. Primers are meant to teach people how to play an archetype and give a reasonably well tuned list. Below I have listed the major points that I have a problem with calling this list a primer.

I guess most of my problems stem from you labeling your deck as a primer. Outside of that, you have some good interactions and a nice looking deck. I would suggest you at least consider all of the cards I listed off if you were unaware of them before.

i actually want Blightsteel Colossus in there, but its so expensive sadface will have a look how to puzzle the thran/lotus in there they are indeed nice additions!

The colossus of Akros is indeed not a great option, but i kinda had nothing else to put there xD I used the deck dozens of times already and never actually played the colossus.. says enough i guess!

Sephyrias are you achieving Blightsteel Colossus for 3 mana over the first 2 turns using only 2 nonland cards from your opening hand?

If so - then yeah, it's more oppressive than iona in casual. Iona feels like a preemptive ban to prevent iona-servant locks (seems simpler to assemble than Karn, the Great Creator + Mycosynth Lattice locks and Stasis + stasis parity breaker locks)

The Paradox Engine ban makes sense for casual, since it lets decks do long noninfinite combo turns with low cmc spells and mana rocks.

However if the rules committee really wanted to commit to making their banlist directed at casual (meaning "ban all undercosted non-buildaround op cards"), then they would also have to hit Necropotence , Food Chain , Survival of the Fittest , Mana Crypt , etc.

Instead, they banned Iona, Shield of Emeria . Turn 1 Entomb , turn 2 Animate Dead Iona can be pretty annoying, but still, she isn't that oppressive either, not even compared to turn 2 Blightsteel Colossus .

I'm running a WUBRG deck and NOT including Legacy Weapon?? I don't care that Morophon doesn't help it's activation cost. "OH! You Tooth and Nail 'd out a Blightsteel Colossus ? Well, I guess I'll just exile it for 5" That's funny to me.

I wanted to keep the non-sliver creatures to as low a number as possible. Also, I've found Orbs of Warding is really handy against goblin/soldier/elf token decks. Shalai would absolutely be a great inclusion if this wasn't a sliver tribal deck.

Homelessguy Thank you! I've been trying to get a Lim-Dul's Vault for the deck, but the new print (with way better art than Alliances) has been surprisingly tough to get. It's definitely on my list for improvements. Cunning Evasion is one from MH I've considered, but haven't tried yet. With multiplayer, it's very uncommon to have no "soft" target for Yuriko herself to swing at, so having to work around blockers comes up quite rarely.

I haven't quite gone in for the common super CMC spells such as Draco and Blinkmoth Infusion , as I want to avoid cards which don't serve any purpose other than Yuriko flips. Blightsteel Colossus and Darksteel Colossus are unique in their ability to reshuffle themselves in, as I can toss them to hand size and then tutor them back to the top the next turn (or possibly even in between activations, if I have Frantic Search to discard them).
