Chief of the Foundry Discussion

Spoonybard on Improvised fabrication

Overall I think you have a solid idea and I think it has potential to be a really fun, strong deck.

I think 3x Inventors' Fair might be too much due to the Legendary status. I would run no more than 2x. Inspiring Statuary makes sense in your deck, but once you have one down on the battlefield, the other 3x are dead cards in hand. I would run 2x or 3x of this card. The odds of having an Inspiring Statuary, multiple Servo's/Artifacts and having Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger in hand, are very low. I would remove Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger all together.

Servo Schematic in the way your deck plays will only net you a single Servo token. You don't have a sacrificing outlet, so once the artifact hits the battlefield it will probably never find its way into the graveyard. I would drop all 3x of them and up Servo Exhibition to 4x. I would also up Sram's Expertise to 4x and Metallic Rebuke to 4x.

I like Chief of the Foundry, it makes a lot of sense and can create much larger Servos. However, Ornithopter only makes sense with Metallic Mimic. Metallic Mimic is good in theory, but I'd rather see Master Trinketeer. Master Trinketeer pumps up all your servos and has the ability to generate even more of them. And the more Master Trinketeer's you have on the board, the more his buff stacks.

I would remove the Insidious Will, Metallurgic Summonings and Mind's Dilation. Up your Disallow to 4x. Insidious Will is a better sideboard card and your deck really isn't about control. Metallurgic Summonings I feel would slow your deck down too much and Mind's Dilation costs way too much mana.

I think going up to 4x Mechanized Production would be very beneficial. Not only can you enchant a Servo, but you can also enchant your Chief of the Foundry. To expand what Mechanized Production can enchant, I would also consider adding some vehicles. One that comes to mind is Aethersphere Harvester. Its Crew cost is only 1 and all of your creatures and Servos meet that requirement.

Other Vehicles to consider are: Ovalchase Dragster, Renegade Freighter, Sky Skiff and Untethered Express. Out of all 5 I listed I think the Aethersphere Harvester makes the most sense. Remember, you don't want to have too many vehicles in your deck because you won't have enough creatures to Crew them.

Based on my suggestions, the following is what I would build:

Spells

4x Mechanized Production

4x Servo Exhibition

4x Sram's Expertise

4x Metallic Rebuke

4x Reverse Engineer

4x Aethersphere Harvester

4x Master Trinketeer

4x Chief of the Foundry

4x Metallic Mimic

Land

2x Inventors' Fair

4x Aether Hub - Mana fixing and extra Energy for the Aethersphere Harvester

4x Prairie Stream

4x Port Town

6x Island

4x Plains

I hope this information helps.

What are your thoughts on Chief of the Foundry?

Add 2 Riskhar, Peema Renegade (Preview unavailable for some reason) to have your servos add mana like Cryptolith Rite.

i'd posibly take out 2 Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter and the Cogworker's Puzzleknotand maybe even a land to add some Chief of the Foundry.

Pretty cool otherwise.

Well damn, I don't wanna be the bearer of bad news!

A lot of people use Servo/Artifact decks, specifically ones that benefit from Artifacts/Creatures coming into play. Usually using Underhanded Designs. But I don't see many people using Red. Mostly b/w, and g/w.

Although I haven't seen anyone using the flickering effect.

Here, let me redeem myself with suggestions:Master Trinketeer
Chief of the Foundry
Toolcraft Exemplar
Visionary Augmenter

Think that's all I got atm. One of the first 2 would defiantly help out.

Oh and I just thought of something else, Panharmonicon would cause your creatures with fabricate to trigger twice, making double the Servos, thus doubling fireweavers effect which is already doubled from Panharmonicon!

As The7thBobba once told me when I said I wanted to build a w/g lifegain but didn't know because everyone does it. He said something along the lines of "fuck what everyone else does and build what you want!". (Not exact words, but close enough for government work).

Why play Chief of the Foundry over Master Trinketeer? Seems like the added servo production would do nothing but help and a 3/2 trades and swings in better than a 2/3. I can't think of anything that removes a 2/3 that doesn't also remove a 3/2.

The mana base is working well at the moment.

I found that having Aether Hub did no good as I needed the coloured mana. I'm not sure that I want to ping myself to get early coloured mana. The deck isn't really aggressive enough for that. It's something I will test.

Herald of Kozilek isn't an Artefact, so it doesn't synergise with my other Creatures. I have won games just by pumping up other Artefacts with Chief of the Foundry.

Summary Dismissal is for Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, who can be cheated on to the field with Aetherworks Marvel.

If that doesn't happen in my local meta you're right - I will be taking those out of my Sideboard.

Thanks for your comments. They've given me food for thought.

Delta-117 on Brewing Help - Mono G ...

One thing I was thinking of currently was a mono green, mono white or even both colors in a deck with artifact creatures.

I my thoughts were using Cryptolith Rite, Chief of the Foundry, Metallic Mimic alongside Animation Module, or something with those cards. I even was considering Fabricator of Blades or whatever that Kaladesh green rare is called.. It was either going to be some tribal Construct / or servo artifact creatures deck. I will try to think of other things however worth sharing.
