Blightsteel Colossus Discussion

Hey there! I love the idea of your deck, and have a couple of suggestions:

While I understand that my suggestions are expensive, I really think they'll make your deck much better. Hope I helped!

PickleNutz on Blue/ Affinity deck help

The Idea is to get Blightsteel Colossus out as fast as possible!

I have been debating back and forth the approach I would have in creating an affinity deck, this is the approach I chose. I wanted to stay away from the typical Arcbound Ravager, Mox Opal, Steel Overseer, and 0 cast Artifact deck types that have become so popular. My idea was to combo out a powerhouse Artifact creature but have a backup plan to hard cast it early if things didn't go my way.

Give me your thoughts, and I appreciate any help as long as it's constructive.

What I would like help with - Speed for the combo, it's listed on the deck's page. Alternative routes that may exist. Suggestions on replacement cards that may cost less for the same effect.

Ashnod's Altar+Nim Deathmantle+Breya, Etherium Shaper is infinite. :P
I do not run the disk because I don't like land destruction, and that's what will happen if Mycosynth Lattice is out. I feel it's unfair and most decks cannot recover from it. Just my own MTG ethics. I have the cards to make this deck nasty as hell, but I don't like facing an endless wave of BS so I try not to present one myself, haha.
Blightsteel Colossus is on my mental shopping list - it'd be nice to have even if for no other reason than to move the Darksteel Colossus into another deck.

So infinite combos? I'm usually pretty good at spotting these, but I'm not seeing it, just synergies. You don't even have Nevinyrral's Disk. Would also generally recommend Blightsteel Colossus over Darksteel Colossus any day. And basically any other black tutor over Beseech the Queen.

I know it's tempting in this kind of deck, but seriously, cut the Sol Rings. It's probably the dickest move you can pull in a casual deck out side of writting Mox [_] on a land with sharpie. Also, it literally means you can't play this under any formats rules. Even Vintage has it restricted to 1 per deck. Having played against two people who had a set of Sol Rings in their deck because "it's casual", I can tell you there is no greater impulse than to play as sharp as you can and kick the ever-loving cardboard out of them.

Play . Seriously, have some sort of black mana source (there are several cheap options like Spire of Industry or Springleaf Drum). Reason for it is Cranial Plating. Trust me, you want this if your goal is mono-artifact. Nothing says !!SURPRISE!! like swinging half your dudes and then killing someone because they didn't block Ornithopter. Ditch Coat of Arms and Door of Destinies for a playset. They're dirt cheep in comparison and offer far more flexibility. Reason being you can pay and move it at instant speed. It also functions as a lightning rod for their artifact removal; if they don't kill it, then it will kill them.

If you're wanting to go for as many lords as possible Master of Etherium is your man. I'd say its probably worth it to cut Adaptive Automaton for it at 1v1. Partly because Master is a bigger beater, but also because it buffs all your creatures so long as they're artifacts, thus freeing you from construct tribal. (Though, if you're going construct tribal, then ignore this.)

Cut the Scuttling Doom Engine. It's a fine sideboard card for when you know your opponent is low enough to the ground to make it a threat, but unless you're packing Fling or even better Shrapnel Blast, then its not worth it. What you want instead is an old standard favorite, Hangarback Walker. Shit gets beastly fast and when they finally kill it you get to swarm them for their trouble.

I'd also advise cutting Nahiri, the Harbinger simply because the deck currently lacks graveyard synergies to get the most out of her looting ability and there's nothing in the deck that is worth her ultimate that could actually close out the game. Maybe if you had Blightsteel Colossus as a 1-of it would be worth it, but even then you'd want something to fetch back your pitched artifacts. Maybe Myr Retriever or its ilk.

Ultimately, all this depends on what you want to do with the deck. I suggest some form of interaction like Galvanic Blast, the aforementioned Shrapnel Blast, or Dispatch. The last place you want to be is having lethal on the board and loosing because you couldn't stop a threat from coming through. Hell, even minimizing the amount of damage you'll take on the blowback from an alpha strike is worth running some removal.

I would make the commander ability more reliable by keeping the amount of useless small creatures on a minimum and rather use noncreature cards that can become or produce creatures instead. For example you could use Mishra's Factory, Blinkmoth Nexus, Inkmoth Nexus (preferrably with Crucible of Worlds) or Drake Haven and other token producing noncreature cards. Then only use creatures in the deck which you want to show up when revealing with the commander...

You could also play additional similar effects, Proteus Staff, Polymorph and so on. And among the big creatures you should consider playing Blightsteel Colossus and some Eldrazi Titans, because they win more than most of the creatures you currently use.

I could use the Thran Turbine instead of Training Grounds. Would that make Fabricate worth running? It grabs Blightsteel Colossus.

Just wanted to point out you can't Green Sun's Zenith for Blightsteel Colossus,

but you can with Chord of Calling!

You might also find Cream of the Crop useful for setting up the next card you draw. You can choose to stack it's effect after Karametra, keeping the chosen card on top.
