Consulate Dreadnought Discussion

Hey, so it looks like you have stuffed the deck with ways to tap down your commander, but you're only untapping during your untap step for the most part, you should look into more untap affects. You have Saddlebags, which works, but I would look to add a few more; Staff of Domination , Umbral Mantle , Thornbite Staff , Thousand-Year Elixir , Paradox Engine , also there's Maze of Ith and Thaumatic Compass Flip. Additionally, if you're going to be tapping and untapping creatures, creatures like Avatar of Woe and Visara the Dreadful , to get more value out of those untap affects. Also, take a look at some of the Crew costs. You are low on creatures, high on Vehicles. You'll always have access to King Macar, the Gold-Cursed , but there's no guarantee you'll have creatures with Power > 2 on the battlefield on in your hand so; Aradara Express , Ballista Charger , Bomat Bazaar Barge , Conqueror's Galleon Flip, Consulate Dreadnought , Demolition Stomper , Fell Flagship , Heart of Kiran , Irontread Crusher , Skysovereign, Consul Flagship , and Weatherlight , all are likely dead cards on the battlefield, unable to be crewed. Also, Magus of the Coffers will be high value as well, generating mass amounts of mana while also being able to untapped by untappers. You also might want to look into adding some more card draw, you have Greed , but perhaps Bloodgift Demon , Pain Seer , and Dark Tutelage are solid options. I know some of my suggestions are expensive, but I'm just trying to help optimize, and efficient untappers are going to be expensive because they're rarer.

My idea is to make all of the above as 30 card Modern legal decks, where you take any two pieces and combine them before the game starts to make a full 60 card deck. Each 30 card deck will also have a "champion" - a mythic or rare that is the lynchpin - while the rest of the cards are commons or uncommons. For example, BR aristocrats:
This can be combined with say, RW Vehicle aggro:
1 Depala, Pilot Exemplar - the champion
4 Veteran Motorist
2 Renegade Freighter
2 Untethered Express
2 Consulate Dreadnought
1 Aeronaut Admiral
2 Speedway Fanatic
1 Caught in the Brights
2 Court Homunculus
You can easily combine the two to make a capable deck. Keep going for the other deck archetypes.
What this idea does is provide a mini-game for more experienced players and variety of gameplay, while less experienced ones get a view of deckbuilding and a form of "smash-up" that is more fun than simply picking up a ready deck. If you want to really spice it up, add some loose cards players can switch in between games - a sort of a sideboard.
For example, with 10 30-card decks, you have 90 combinations.

I also find it a bit odd that you're running with Grand Arbiter in such an artifact focused deck. I feel like Hanna, Ship's Navigator or Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage would make a bit more sense. You could even make a case for Lavinia of the Tenth since you seem to want to lock down your opponent with this deck and she could do that. Though her ability won't trigger while you have an orb effect out.

Does Consulate Dreadnought even count since its not a creature?

studajew Oh ok it makes sense now. I'll wait for a reprint of this card before adding it to the list since I really dislike to older frames :)
M2KMKII Thank you! I've seen it but the cards were ordered already... Once I put the deck together and play it a bit, I will see if Voltaic Servant is needed in there and I will put it in instead of Consulate Dreadnought or something.
Jimmy_Chinchila Thanks! Yeah it took me a while to get it right, and I haven't played the deck IRL yet. I'll put in some updates since every deck should be a work in progress. If you have a list and want some feedback, don't hesitate to mention me!

I just started running Iroas as the commander for Depala Vehicles. Depala, Pilot Exemplar

Let's say I have Consulate Dreadnought on the battlefield. My opponent casts Traxos, Scourge of Kroog and then passes turn. On my turn, can I use Kari Zev's Expertise to steal Traxos, tap it to crew the dreadnought, and then use Kari's free spell to Fling Traxos back at them?
If so, that's the most pirate thing I've ever heard. Please let it be so.

I actually like curving out a bit lower, it can be really, really easy to power out a Ghalta on turn 4. More mana dorks are a must.
Consider Initiate's Companion - not glamorous, but it is a LOT of ramp towards your commander.Strider Harness is good for giving Ghalta haste so you can beat down the turn you cast it.Consulate Dreadnought is something I've been having a bit of fun with too.
