Chief of the Foundry Discussion

This inspired to try and make my own Feldon deck. Here are some other things that might be good. Wolf of Devil's Breach, Chief of the Foundry, Breaker of Armies, Artisan of Kozilek, Bomat Courier

Interesting idea... It cross my mind that you could use Oketra's Last Mercy as a sideboard against super aggro decks because you can play Approach with improvise, basically with few lands. But meh, such a bad card.

Alright!Let's focus... I just wonder how fast could a deck like this jam a overwhelming Splendor . With Servo Exhibition into Inspiring Statuary, you'll have 4 lands on turn 4 (ideally) and 3 artifacs. One short, but seems pretty fast. With Chief of the Foundry the servos would look pretty strong against all the vanilla 1/1's.

I'm trying to figure out how the deck can protect itself from Abrade or even counterspells, since you can't afford to delay Inspiring Statuary that much against powerfull decks like Remunap and Temur. Perhaps Spell Pierce as a form of protection? I'm assuming that Inspiring Statuary is the core card of the deck, so you could use some tutors like Trophy Mage and Inventors' Fair.

Looking at the treasure producers, treasure map (flip into 3 artifacts + land seems nice) and Spell Swindle seems to be the best ones here. Another one from ixalan: River's Rebuke .

Have you considered black for Tezzeret the Schemer?

The one thing I'm sure is Mechanized Production is a bad card. It's slow and easy to disrupt.

I don't even know where to start... I hope you can make it work :P

Uri on Let's Build: Aegisaur + Ballista ...

1 month ago

I like building weird combo's, and ever since Amonhket came out, I built a deck revolving around Approach the Second Sun without use of the Aetherworks Marvel. It worked brilliantly, an above 80% win-rate.

And right now, we're back at it prying for another weird, wicked win-con...:Bellowing Aegisaur + Walking Ballista. Shoot that Aegisaur, get a counter on all your creatures INCLUDING your own ballista again, refueling it as it shoots.

So, let's try build this deck then. Firstly, we need to decide what colors we're going to use! White will be mandatory, either as splash or base. Blue comes in next because blue is crucial if we want to stall long enough and dig deep enough.

Now comes the dilemma; two colors as it is now is NOT enough. We need a third. We have two options: Green, for some extra ramp and other dummies to let our Ballista beat up: Ripjaw Raptor and/or Ranging Raptors. Especially the latter is beautiful when it's being abused with a ballista, it lets us ramp incredibly much for no mana cost at all.

Red on the other hand will give us more consistency, and lets us play a very strong walker for this deck: Saheeli Rai. Nonetheless, if we play little creatures, we can sneak in that Indomitable Creativity because we have something amazing: TREASURE TOKENS! If we play the following five creatures: 2x Bellowing Aegisaur, 2x Walking Ballista, 1x Chief of the Foundry, we only need to munch our Spell Swindle on a 5-mana spell and our combo is live.

Decisions decisions...

One thing is for sure: Dovin Baan will return! He is just too good. He nerfs, he draws and gains life, delaying aggro. What I have also liked is one or two copies of Commit/Memory . Vastly underestimated, in my opinion. It's not a counterspell, so it affects Carnage Tyrant, and we can use it post-casting too, putting our opponent in a suspended time-warp effect.

But now, how do we stall time? We need answers. White/Blue/Red is the theme, and red is beautiful with removal.Lightning Strike - Shock - Farm/Market - Perilous Voyage - Depths of Desire - Cast Out - Harnessed Lightning - Sweltering Suns - Abrade.

How do we draw into our combo? For one, Perilous Voyage already does a great job scrying and removing at the same time. Chart A Course and Catharic Reunion lets us dig deep for cheap, but an all-classic is Glimmer of Genius. some Supreme Will and Censor gives us some versatility and takes out threats for us.

This at the moment are some cards I have in mind for this deck, but I'd love to hear from other players what they think of this. Know some cards I forgot, or know some other methods of digging into our combo? Go ahead, share!

I cut Chief of the Foundry to make room for Unlicensed Disintegration. Haven't regretted it since.

So the way i see it in this deck you have here there are a couple really big glaring cards that aren't here I'm not gonna go over all of them I suggest you have a look at Breya's EDHREC page for most of them. First you one big mass reanimation spell in open the vaults. These are fundamentally busted and not running them is a massive mistake. Second Paradox engine and Tezzeret the seeker, since this deck (like all breya lists) run a lot of rocks and you can pretty easily chain spells and tutors and the like to win the game these two cards really help you get there. That's just a start, rather than give you more cards you need to play I'm just gonna let you know what you should cut out;

Curse of Opulence

Commander's Sphere

Darksteel Ingot

Chief of the Foundry

Foundry Inspector

Anointed Procession

Mechanized Production

Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient

Bident of Thassa

That's all i really have to say about this deck, if you need some ideas for cards to run check out this link:

EDHREC Breya main page

And if you want to build this deck more competitively you can use my list as a kind of baseline, if you don't want to run the combo's just take out the enablers and just run some spell bombs and a dispellers capsule:

@chalto First of all I appreciate that you like it.

You can use Mirage Mirror in different ways. For example, you can copy a Metallic Mimic or Chief of the Foundry and let more servos and or Mimics enter the battlefield.You can also use it to trigger Animation Module ability again which allows to create a lot of more servos if you have enough Mana :)

You can copy one artifact which has been enchanted with Tezzeret's Touch and attack. You can copy one Anointed Procession and create twice as many servos. If you have Hidden Stockpile in play and a permanent leaves your battlefield it creates also two servos.

I thought this card is a nice addition to this deck and i'm just fooling arround with it maybe there are much better combos :)
