Cogworker's Puzzleknot Discussion

A bit of both. I have a couple of options in my affinity decks. I run Grixis for Bleak Coven Vampires, or white for Auriok Sunchaser and Ardent Recruit. If you want to break away from the mold, Kaladesh has some great options - Reckless Fireweaver, Salivating Gremlins and Cogworker's Puzzleknot for triggering all of those. They work great with Atog too.

This deck looks really cool and fun! The only thing I'm unsure about is the Cogworker's Puzzleknot. I think you can replace them with one more Servo Exhibition and maybe a couple Path to Exile. Also, look at adding a Godless Shrine, but your mana base looks like it works. Good Luck!

You're right about Servo Schematic having to leave to give you the 2nd servo, but it DOES give you 2 artifacts for two mana, making it easier to improvise. It's also a better target for Tezzeret's Touch since you benefit when it hits the yard... AND it goes back to your hand to be cast again. Later, it's a great target for Herald of Anguish

Just my opinion, but seems better than Cogworker's Puzzleknot, if you had to pick one (since you're limited on ways to make anyway.

I think there are better ways to get artifacts on the field for your improvise cards. Cards like Servo Schematic and Cogworker's Puzzleknot and Weaponcraft Enthusiast each give you 2 servos upon impact. Renegade Map is a nice 1-drop that can help if you run out of lands and Prophetic Prism replaces itself and helps with manafixing. Hope these help.

Yeah, sorry about that. I was looking at Murder and not Murder. And I didn't even realize you were over 60.

So, maybe try this.

Take out the 4 Prophetic Prisms because you really don't need the mana fixing. And, you can't tap it to Improvise and get mana of any color.

Take out the 2 Renegade Map because they won't be helping you Improvise at all coming in tap, and they kill themselves to get a land. Once again, you don't need a lot of mana fixing

Take out the 1 Terrarion basically for the same reasons as the other two.

Take out 1 Baral's Expertise. It's not as useful as you would like it to be.

Take out 1 Collective Brutality because I think you can get a better Rare for this slot.

Take out 1 Yahenni's Expertise because unfortunately, this card is probably going to hurt you more than help. All those 1/1 Servo Tokens you make will just straight up die to this.

There's a few other nip and tucks on a few cards that might slow you down. So, I think we could do something like this.

LANDS -- 22

11x Swamp

11x Island


4x Bastion Inventor

3x Cogworker's Puzzleknot

3x Metallic Rebuke

2x Cathar's Shield


2x Ornithopter

2x Contraband Kingpin

2x Tezzeret's Touch

2x Servo Schematic

2x Glimmer of Genius

2x Pacification Array

2x Murder

2x Reverse Engineer

RARE -- 8

1x Battle at the Bridge

1x Confirm Suspicions

1x Padeem, Consul of Innovation

1x Ruinous Path

1x To the Slaughter

1x Syndicate Trafficker --> Great for pumping when you're done Improvising. Also has great synergy with the next card

1x Animation Module --> It pumps out Servos for Improvising and has great synergy with itself and Trafficker from above

1x Inspiring Statuary --> Lets everything take advantage of your Improvising abilities


1x Herald of Anguish

1x Tezzeret the Schemer

That would just be my take on it. I know there's a lot of ways to take this deck, and I think you choose a really good theme for the restrictions.

I have a similar deck that I'm playing with online. From my experience, you really need other ways to trigger animation module just to get some incidental value from it. I recommend Syndicate Trafficker as he can also get value with servo schematic. Also Servo Exhibition is probably just better than Cogworker's Puzzleknot for your deck

My deck is somewhat similar and I have been testing with it for a couple months so you might want to check it out here:

I have never been a huge fan of the puzzleknots... Especially the Cogworker's Puzzleknot. It always felt slow to me (4 mana for 2 1/1s, which cant be reused like Master Trinketeer's can). Perhaps replace those with more Fabricate Creatures?

rorzor on W/B ServoSword

Nice deck! I like Cogworker's Puzzleknot over Servo Schematic since you can make a servo and trigger revolt without needing Syndicate Trafficker out, If it were me I'd do a 4/2 split rather than 3/3.

Given that it's likely going to be a slightly slower game, maybe Shambling Vent would be good as a means of getting some life back on a dead draw, as well as fixing your mana.

Id throw in a Herald of Anguish or two since you can likely cast it on turn 4 with improvise.

Sideboard should have Transgress the Mind, Ruinous Path and maybe Scrapheap Scrounger for control, and fill out Fatal Push with Grasp of Darkness and something like Immolating Glare against agro
