Blightsteel Colossus Discussion

There are quite a few 0 Mana equipment cards that do more than Paradise Mantle .
Accorder's Shield , Cathar's Shield , Spidersilk Net , and Bone Saw all cost 0 to play while also having the possibility to help out Urza. Especially with the shields; if we want Urza to be efficient, he's gotta stay on the board.
Also, these artifacts can tap for mana while equipped and they do a lot more than the other 0 mana artifacts you have. Darksteel Relic does literal nothing, Fountain of Youth is awful in any format I'd say, and cards like Spellbook cost 0 but don't expect them to do much else.
Tormod's Crypt is probably fine, especially with some kind of recursion, same with Herbal Poultice and Mishra's Bauble . The only recursion I see is Emry though, so maybe add some. Also with recursion, you get access to Mindslaver which, with just 1 activation, can be back-breaking for your opponent. Getting to loop Mind Slaver also just wins the game because if your opponent can't stop it, they can't play anymore
Winter Orb and Static Orb is interesting. I'm trying to think of a way to make it so it only affects your opponents. Maybe I don't see it, but the only way I can think is to tap it on the previous player's end-step, then, at the end of your turn, untap it with something. That something, from what I see, is Unwinding Clock . That's only one card, maybe add Voltaic Key because even outside of this synergy it's pretty good.
Apart from Urza's ability, you don't have much payoff for turning everything into a Mox Sapphire. The top of your curve has so few cards, and some of them don't just win on the spot. Time Stretch is a good one, but Darksteel Forge , while good, isn't something we want to pay 9 for and it just keeps the game going, not actually winning on its own. I do see Arcum Dagsson , but, again, 1 in 99 cards and blue has 0 creature tutors. Blightsteel Colossus is the only easy win card, but it still has to get through and attack and it could get exiled
Maybe Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur to draw into more spells. A part of dumping your hand of 0 mana artifacts is that you need to draw more cards to play off all these supposed Mox Sapphires. Bunch of mana and nothing to do with it. Jin-Gitaxias helps this by drawing 7 every turn
You could even play Eldrazi. All the Titans, or even It That Betrays or Desolation Twin , can win games easily. Getting to Mindslaver someone with a 13/13 in play, drawing cards just for fun, exiling and destroying permanents, or just stealing your opponent's board can all win games very easily. Annihilator is also just a busted mechanic on its own.

Hey Last_Laugh !
Thanks for the comments and suggestion mate!
Lets start with New Blood one of my favourite cards in the deck. I'm having so much fun running this one !! Stealing a Utvara Hellkite did not happen yet but boy oh boy that would be bonkers <:D but the ones i did steal and are worth mentioning are Omnath, Locus of Rage that play was ridiculous because i already had a wide board of vamps including Elenda, the Dusk Rose + Yahenni, Undying Partisan so i just went full out and on the ES i sacced all my vamps to Yahenni ! Every vamp that died triggered Omnath for 3 ping damage and was a fuel for Elenda feeding her with counters and saccing her as last to obtain a wide board again and doing it all over to finish the table off :) Will never forget that one !! A Vampire Blightsteel Colossus is also a game ending steal :P I highly recommend New Blood every vamp deck should run it imo.
Oversold Cemetery & Scapegoat did have a slot in my deck for multiple weeks but most of the time they did not shine the way i thought they would, and a few times those cards were a dead card in hand. Meaning i drawed the Oversold Cemetery early game and had no vamps or to less in my GY to trigger it and at those points that card only slowed me down and that didn't fit my aggro very well :)
Scapegoat is a very nice card ! But instead of removing my board presence back to my hand i rather protect my board with cards like Teferi's Protection , Unbreakable Formation , Boros Charm to finish the game quicker and keeping the threat presence. But in some situations it would be a better card, especially when Purphoros, God of the Forge is present. So it might come back someday ! and I would like to thank you again for your suggestion of Scapegoat you did a few months ago .

Oath of Druids also makes it incredibly difficult for that one control player to do their thing. Last game I played that spell there was an insane escalation involving a turn 4 Blightsteel Colossus & me sitting there with new krenko, Iroas, & Marisi throwing fodder around & goading all these high-end creatures. Meanwhile the turtle & superfriend deck could not keep up because they did not want to activate Oath & pitch 1/2 their deck/wincons into the graveyard to play one of their underwhelming utility creatures. One player finally elected to do so in order to try to catch up with chump blockers and basically was darned near milling himself out, all for forest elves.

XinZhao Yeah I can add in Buried Ruin , haven't really had a problem with my artifacts being destroyed. Thanks for recommendations, but I feel Disenchant is better overall currently over Bedevil . There is a lot more enchantments in my meta and I need the flexibility. Utter End on the other hand has been on my mind, but the only thing stopping me from running it right now is the 4 CMC, it's good but I have to see how much single target removal I need in comparison to sweepers. Crackling Doom is a pet favorite card and I always liked having it in part of my package, killed people with the 2 damage before as well as making each opponent sac their greatest power creature. (Get's rid of that Blightsteel Colossus or any other hexproof/indestructible shenanigans)
As for Murderous Rider , I tried him in the beginning and I cut him out afterwards. I never really liked having him in my hand but maybe cuz I'm not going knight tribal, if it is Knight tribal I would reconsider adding him back in. For Embercleave I don't run enough creatures to make it work and even than I rather have other cheaper equipments. Appreciate the feedback!

p.s. you need better creatures, Lord of Atlantis and Trinket Mage work well together. Most of your creatures are pretty sucky so I would look to add more cards like Endless One , Platinum Angel , Faerie Miscreant , and Blightsteel Colossus .

Perhaps you’re failing to play to red’s strengths. Sure blue has more answers and draw power, but red has recursion and... I don’t know how to phrase it better than attrition. But think cards like Blood Moon and Choke alongside Winter Orb and Ensnaring Bridge . Throw in Mana Web , Defense Grid , etc, and what you end up playing is a deck that really brutally locks opponents out of the game. From there, smack someone with a Blightsteel Colossus , or just let everyone deck out and hang on to a Platinum Angel , and it’s an easy game. The trick with red is locking people out, and red has WAY more options for hard-locking people than blue does.

Hi firesparker, Infect is more difficult in Multiplayer Games. I played a Atraxa Build with Infect for 2 Mounths. Your biggest Problem are your Opponents and there know what you play.
I try to give your my suggestion.
- Try to play Blightsteel Colossus over some Cheat-in Cards like Show and Tell , Defense of the Heart or maybe Quicksilver Amulet .
Take more focus on Poliferate
Use dirty Cards like Tainted Strike for take out someone if an Opponents attacks with a Fattie.
Putrefax Awesome Dude, maybe play with Reanimate/Regroth/Eternal Wittness
Phyrexian Hydra Fattie
Master Biomancer push your Creatures
Tezzeret's Gambit Carddraw + Poliferate
Triumph of the Hordes Overrun
Contagion Engine Poliferate but high Cmc, depending on your Meta.
Evolution Sage Landdrops with benefits
Craterhoof Behemoth Value Finisher if you had this Budget.
Grafted Exoskeleton also good, but expensive (CMC)
Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Must have.
Mostly important is your Manabase and Mana-Rocks.
You will play fast as possible. Cut Lands that enters tapped.
Play Atraxa just you can protect her. Abuse her Lifelink every Combat and cut Cards like Fog ...
Your opponents do not want to attack you if Atraxa is online -> Deathtouch.
Maybe you need more Carddraw, Topdeck-Control:
If you build more around +1/+1 Counters with Master Biomancer -> Herald of Secret Streams
BUT, i think your Build is also good with more focus on poliferate.
