Bone Saw Discussion

TheMazter13 on Urza EDH

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.

Belt of Holding

Artifact - Equipment

Equip costs of other Equipment artifacts you control cost less if they target equipped creature.

Equipped creature gets +0/+1 and has protection from deathtouch.

Equip


I can just see the image on this card: a leather belt wrapped around a soldier's waist, which has a Bone Saw , a Godsend , and a Colossus Hammer hanging off of it.

An equipment wildcard next!

Bone Saw might actually be worth considering over Ghostfire Blade due to it being another 0 cost artifact.

Does Judge's Familiar fit in budget?

Have you considered a Glint Hawk / Artificer's Assistant / Neurok Familiar / Sky Theater Strix / Serra Disciple as a Bone Saw / Springleaf Drum / Cathar's Shield / Herbal Poultice beatdown/value engine?

Thrummingbird offers a +1+1 counters theme, but I don't feel like there is enough in the low-to the ground slots to make it work.

TerminalMarch on It's Raining Metal!! - Kykar Budget EDH

No problem.

Also, if you want more free artifacts to trigger Kykar's ability, take a look at Cathar's Shield , Accorder's Shield , Spidersilk Net , Paradise Mantle , and Bone Saw

Though Paradise Mantle may be out of the budget.

I feel like Puresteel Paladin could be a good option. Then, instead of some of the slower search cards, you could instead just run some 0-cost equipment to draw through deck fast while also beefing up your various dudes that like being equiped, for some early damage. Thinking stuff like Bone Saw and Cathar's Shield ??

Given your mana curve, I think you can trim out 2 lands pretty safely. I would also suggest Bonesplitter over Bone Saw , though I think you're relying too much on artifacts and enchantments, so I think you need to up the creature count to about 24 or 26. There's too much premium removal in pauper, so I think you'll find that you too often have those artifacts and enchantments (specifically Snake Umbra and the artifacts) without targets, or easily removed once you attach them. There needs to be a density of creatures to overcome this removal (which is quite heavy in pauper).

Cool deck idea! +1 from me!

Equip abilities can only be activated as sorceries (in other words, during your main phase and if the stack is empty), so no. See the reminder text on... Pretty much any equipment that has reminder text. Bone Saw , Shuko , Fleetfeather Sandals , etc. Some equipment like Cranial Plating , however, have additional activated abilities without the sorcery-speed restriction in addition to their equip abilities. Also, if you had a creature like Brass Squire with an instant-speed activated ability, you could pull this off. And of course, Leonin Shikari explicitly gets rid of this restriction.
