Caltrops Discussion

Hmm, not sure I agree with you. Of course Mycosynth Lattice is better, but having redundancy isn't a bad thing, having twice the possibility of drawing it is still very valuable just like having Swords to Plowshares and Path of Exile is great. And 2 mana means it could possibly come online very early game and shut someone out, whereas Lattice is much later. Could see you cutting a land since you have a decent number of mana rocks.

That is to say I assume you're playing 1v1, if you generally play multiplayer then I absolutely understand not having Liquimetal Coating. And regardless, it is your deck. Still looks like a really cool list, I love the unexpected Caltrops synergy

Caltrops. Literally the best card for Sydri, Galvanic Genius. Animate it, give it Lifelink and Deathtouch, and boom you have a wall that kills anything dumb enough to attack and gains you a bit of life too. Not too bad if you ask me.

I think you could easily cut Memnarch, Take Possession, March of the Machines, Angel's Grace, Liquimetal Coating, Caltrops, Blinkmoth Urn and Mindslaver and the deck wouldn't miss them. That's a start at least.

Also, running 1 counter spell seems silly. I'd say either cut it or add more.

To be honest, you are not playing control per se, but, more of a group-slug variant. Run more rattlesnake effects! Where is your False Prophet and your Koskun Falls? Hell, I might have been running Bearer of the Heavens (not likely without Eerie Interlude) next to my Orzhov Advokist (definite inclusion)! :p

Why are you running Caltrops instead of Lightmine Field? Instead of Cauldron Haze include the Cauldron of Souls itself :p

A Royal Assassin is more handy than a Dark Impostor when you don't want to keep 6 mana open every turn. He also doesn't grow bigger with every activation but he always threats a kill at instant speed if something dares to attack you without being vigilant :p

I would also consider the double damage enchantments to be removed as well, as they work against you as much as they do for you. Use the Curse of Bloodletting to incentivise people in more direct way. The dictate is good though because of flash...

Your maybeboard has some real gems! Especially fond of Martyr's Bond!

Also a Sunforger with 3 targets only is a very sad Sunforger... It's meant to be the answer-stick! Get that Chaos Warp, Oblation, Terminate, Mortify, Return to Dust, Into the Core, Retaliate, Wild Ricochet, Utter End and Anguished Unmaking... maybe even a Master Warcraft? That, or remove Sunforger since it won't be doing much for you as a +4/+0 buff.

Yeah, I'm with Lilbrudder on the ramp there. Orzhov Signet is missing, and the talismans.

For the cuts, maybe you could cut one of the boots. And Lim-Dul's Vault doesn't put you the card you want in your hand. It's like a more expensive and more damaging Vampiric Tutor. Soul of New Phyrexia has never been useful enough to me. Scourglass is a non-bo with Mycosynth Lattice. Caltrops could also be cutted, except if you putted it in for a local metagame answer (facing too many token players?).

One more: Voltaic Construct can make infinite mana with an animated Gilded Lotus or Thran Dynamo. A bit narrow, but fun hehe.

dsil88; there is one copy of Caltrops? Or do you mean that I should add more cards like Caltrops?

Needs more Caltrops.

Caltrops would be a good defensive strategy card. Make it a creature with deathtouch and lifelink and.
