Built to Last


Target creature gets +2/+2 until end of turn. If it's an artifact creature, it gains indestructible until end of turn. (Damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it.)

I love this idea. I used to run a RW Golem deck in modern with Thopter Engineer s to fill out the artifact creature plan and for a big surprise swing with golem tokens and maybe a Built to Smash to end it and with Built to Last as protection (nuts whenever there was a Precursor Golem out). Fun times.

One thing I notice is the lack of Panharmonicon in the deck? It's amazing in a blink/flicker deck like Roon

Another card to consider is Tempered Steel which is awesome in any artifact creature deck, understandably. It doesn't do anything besides make them big, but sometimes that's all you need, just like a Beastmaster Ascension if you're interested in those type of effects.

Have you considered metalcraft and "when this becomes tapped" effects? Or would that lean too far away from the midrange-y goodstuff goal of this deck.

Just an idea but what about Built to Last instead of Ally Invasion. You can't exactly bounce tokens to your hand

Thx for the comment !

I didn't think about Refurbish, it could be a nice add but I don't know what to switch. Maybe Jaya's Immolating Inferno because it's a bit overkill.

Sheltering Light over Built to Last, I think scry is better since I don't have any draw spells and it also protect Lyra Dawnbringer.

Sweet deck :)

have you thought about Refurbish & Built to Last as reloading the board and protection from killspells?

or if you don't want the +2/+2 Sheltering Light

Also add pump spells, Built to Smash and Built to Last would work well with this deck

I would like to start off saying I really like your deck idea you have here. I have a few suggestions and I hope you don't mind the lengthy suggestions.

Not sure if you are willing but you may want to splash for black to have Hidden Stockpile. The splash for this card can help you dig to your Mechanized Production as well as give you even more token production value.

If you add the stockpile, you can also use the creature Weaponcraft Enthusiast over Visionary Augmenter to ease off the double costs and still get a fabricate 2 card. The creature also serves a double purpose as sacrifice fodder to feed the stockpile for more tokens.

Another benefit of black is that you can use Lost Legacy in the side deck to help destroy combo decks by removing the combo pieces or remove win cons like Approach of the Second Sun.

You may want to remove Built to Last from your deck as it is not a great protection spell. It would probably be better to use either Negate or Disallow as it they car protect your non-artifact creature sources from removal (example: Mechanized Production being targeted for removal by an opponents Ixalan's Binding or Naturalize).

Another card you may want to consider is Thopter Arrest or more Baffling End over a couple copies of your Cast Out/Ixalan's Binding. The reasoning for this is that you have a rather high mana curve at 4 for most of your spells and you only are running 21 lands. The inclusion of some of these cheaper removals over the more expensive versions should help your decks flow a bit. Another reason for this suggestion is that you can combo these removals with Sram's Expertise (side note: another reason why to use Weaponcraft Enthusiast over Visionary Augmenter).

Finally I would pull out Torrential Gearhulk from the side deck. You don't run enough instants to really make it that effective. Disregard this comment if you chose to add black to deck with Fatal Pushes; since this is a much pricier change I didn't suggest earlier.

I hope these comments were helpful. If you have any questions feel free to ask away and I will try to help as best as I can.

White has a pretty strong hold on indestructible too see recent cards like Make a Stand, Survive the Night, Built to Last and any version of Gideon. I don't recall many indestructible artifacts that aren't made of darksteel.

Maybe what you want from artifacts are things that are niche towards certain archetypes. Like Throne of the God-Pharaoh is good for token/swarm decks, so elves, goblins, most white-green decks. So making it an artifact makes it good for all of them but still fits a niche. Same with some we've seen in Ixalan, things like Vanquisher's Banner that are good for tribal decks of any color, and Primal Amulet  Flip is good for any type of spell slinger build. Maybe that kind of utility is where artifacts should remain, though that doesn't really solve what to do with artifact heavy sets....
