Codex Shredder Discussion

hkhssweiss on Breya - Artificers Revolution

Have you ever thought about running Scrap Mastery or Faith's Reward ? When used in conjunction with KCI, it leads to a lot of fun plays and triggers. Loop that in with Codex Shredder and any rock that produces two red you can lead to infinite ETB/LTB of your triggers and can go infinite with Breya as well.

Hope that helps!

I'm finding the land count just a bit low. Too many mulligans and games where I stall, so I'm looking to make cuts to fit in two to three Swamps.

Also, I made a couple of changes:

  • IN: Black Market
    • The first game after I added it was a five player game. By the time it was my turn again, Black Market had 16 counters on it.
  • OUT: Codex Shredder

    • Something had to go. Codex Shredder is fun and gives the deck additional recovery power, but I should be able to recover a few times without recursion.
  • IN: Butcher of Malakir

    • Grave Pact effects are so good in this deck, even a 7-mana creature version is worth it.
  • OUT: Rats of Rath
    • They're a sac outlet for Grave Pact, but they are probably the weakest Rat played in the deck. Worry not, they will return to the deck - keeping playable Rats is a priority, but Rats of Rath was the safest cut at the moment.

Memory Plunder would be great tech for mill strategies, same as Lantern of Insight so you can see who to mill as well. Altar of the Brood is also quite funny for the consistent mill. Codex Shredder is a great tool as well as recursion engine when you want something back from your grave.

Hope that helps!

Have you seen SaffronOlive's video on Experimental Frenzy?

It's great but getting a land on top put the deck on a full break, so maybe adding a Codex Shredder to mill yourself if you're on that spot or Relic of Progenitus as it has GY hate included, which is what SaffronOlive uses.

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas might help you dig for cards and provide another wincing. He may be unnecessary though. Tezzeret the Seeker would be another KCI, which is important to the deck somewhat.

Workshop Assistant is another junk diver effect too.

Higher volume of potential pieces increases the likelihood of going off.

The deck doesn't need too many colour pips, so you could cut some of the mana-fixing rocks, even though there are only good ones here.

I don't think you need jitte, you may want greaves—especially if you run the Kuldotha Forgemaster .

Play the deck and let me know, but I don't think you need the Thirst for Knowledge . The deck may want a Hurkyl's Recall to assist going off. Target your self to get more triggers off cast and ETB effects.

If you want to go full eggs, you should have a look at Whir of Invention , Second Sunrise , Faith's Reward , Clock of Omens , Reshape , Codex Shredder and other "eggs" effects.

Thanks for the comment hkhssweiss and sorry for the long delayed response. Codex Shredder is an interesting option, but I am not sure I really have room for it right now. Plus I prefer Perpetual Timepiece for the graveyard protection and overall cheaper mana investment.

Faith's Reward is an interesting option that I will need to try out. I actually lost a game the other day because I was forced into casting Hour of Revelation to stop an opponent from winning, but I lost all of my mana rocks in the process and couldn't recover. Plus at 4 cmc vs. a card like Miraculous Recovery at 5 cmc, I can tutor it up with Sunforger.
