Cathar's Shield Discussion

Treehugger003 on Akiri, Equipment Slinger

I would remove: Myth Realized-its slow and it really doesn't boost your existing creatures so to make full use you will have to equip to it. If you like the effect Scroll of the Masters is an artifact version that I think works better in this deck, Cathar's Shield-It just doesn't do enough for you, Servo Exhibition-its a one time use and servo's don't fly. I think you might be better off and might want to keep something similar if you can find it in an instant but as a sorcery its just not worth its place,Blade Splicer and Master Splicer-its just a creature. You are really trying to kill with a voltron strategy and you should be able to do that with akiri., Frogmite-just another creature. Granted it comes in for free but its only a 2/2, Leonin Elder-1 life per artifact isn't great. Especially if you are getting lifelink off creatures/equipment. Myr Mindservant I didn't see where you were running top of deck manipulation like Sensei's Divining Top so I dont' think you need it. Thraben Inspector-its a one drop that will get you a card. Not sure its really what you want. If you are looking for a one drop creature that might work well try Mother of Runes.Militant Inquisitor if you get to the point where you want him you've probably already lost the game. The other thing is you can cut down on the equipment but equipment choices are really about personal preference.

One more thing. Please switch out Manalith for Commander's Sphere or Boros Cluestone they tap for the same mana but you can sacrafice them for card draw if you really need it.

Remember its your deck and many of the choices should be based on who you play with.

There's a Cheerios deck build that incorporates 0 cost equipments with Gaveleer that works really well. I would suggest trying it out. The deck uses Sram, Senior Edificer, Puresteel Paladin, Goblin Gaveleer, Mox Opal, Paradise Mantle, Grapeshot, Noxious Revival, Paradise Mantle, Cathar's Shield, Bone Saw, Accorder's Shield, Spidersilk Net, and roughly the same mana base as this deck. It is capable of turn 3 wins pretty routinely. You can sideboard Path to Exile, any modern burn spells, and other low cost equipment.

I would suggest Cathar's Shield for Obsidian Battle-Axe. Its a lower casting cost and while it doesn't provide any attack, if you're equipping it to Galvaneer he pumps up himself. I don't know if its just me, but having some Spellskite side board would probably help also. maybe 2-3 instead of Vault Skirge and Enraged Giant. While those two are fine cards all-an-all Spellskite could potentially be the one to save you from paths and other killspells at your main win cons. Hope I helped.

your starting curve is to high imo.since your ultimate goal is to drop the metalwork collosus, why not try to build more around affinity and cheap 0 or 1 drops you can vomit out of your hand at start?Like Cathar's Shield Bone Saw Chimeric Mass Spellbook or something like that. Or creatures like Memnite or Ornithopter to attach Cranial Plating to.

thanks again for stopping by suicidelg!

I honestly haven't play tested 3rd Degree enough to give you an answer I would be happy with. I've played it on xmage and what not just not enough in person. This is the current deck in running until the rotation.

I don't run sideboards on here because it effects the price of the deck. But i do run Essence Scatterx3, Firebrand Archer 4, Bone Sawx4, Cathar's Shieldx4. My sideboard is pretty funky but that's because there are a couple turbo fog decks at my lgs and Firebrand Archer wrecks them!

matchgrizzle on R/B artifact deck feat. Pia's revolution

If you were to run Panharmonicon along with Reckless Fireweaver and say, Servo Schematic and or Cogworker's Puzzleknot you could dish out some serious damage in a single turn.

Panharmonicon would double the servo's created from either of those spells and also double the damage triggers from the Fireweaver as well. If you put that on top of Pia's Revolution, it would be pretty crazy.

You could also consider using no cost artifacts, like Ornithopter or Bone Saw or Cathar's Shield, that way you can keep slamming them on the board, dealing damage with the Fireweaver until your opponent has enough and chooses to pay the 3 life to send it to the graveyard.

Ohhh and Ravenous Intruder could even set that up for an infinite loop. Well, like I said, infinite until they pay the 3 life to kill it.

Cool stuff though, hope my suggestions help!
