Consulate Turret Discussion
3 weeks ago
Hi Deltis, thanks for your comments, really good suggestions! Consulate Turret is a great suggestion that I've not noticed before. I wasn't sure if Electrostatic Pummeler had a place here as I've not got any of the pump spells that green/red decks favour with it. However, the Fabrication/Decoction/Animation module engine does seem to give you opportunity to start buffing Electrostatic Pummeler and then drop a load of energy on it that you've accrued.
I also feel that Aethersquall Ancient seems a bit of a poor late game use of all the energy but I can't think of another replacement that might use energy at that late stage. Any suggestions for sideboard would be hugely appreciated. I was thinking some more removal spells but have not built a sideboard before.

Your deck does better than it seems at first, but it has a small issue with having too much energy. I understand you want a lot of energy, but you need more ways to spend it in mid/late games. I tested this deck out a decent bit against a revolt deck I'm working on and noticed that if they got rid of your major cards, it was time to concede. More answers for opponents things could be useful as a side board.
Might I suggest Electrostatic Pummeler, Consulate Turret, and Scrapper Champion as a few more ways to use up your energy. I know that Scrapper is red, but the double strike that gets really big quickly could really help mid game against stand offs. Aethertorch Renegade could also be a nice way for extra reach mid and late game. But you would probably rather keep it just two color and not have to splash red for either of those cards.

Honestly I thought maybe building a gremlin tribal deck with artifacts, and then focusing on salivating gremlins/ravenous intruder. To power up territorial gorger, maybe we could look at that totally underplayed card, Consulate Turret ! it taps for energy, which powers up gorger, and so on.
Also, since ixalan is now a thing, it means we get access to Unclaimed Territory, (although it's mono-red), as well as vanquisher's banner to give card draw and stuff.
Maybe a gremlin aggro deck with Ravenous Intruder, Ruinous gremlin, salivating gremlins, brazen scourge, and maybe territorial gorger is the way to go? it would be a super fun deck, I think I'll try building one and see how it goes! thanks for the help on a cool deck Idea!

Consulate Turret can be a reasonably consistent way to get your energy

Updated the deck again after playing some FNM....(went 4-6)
Also added in more lands with Irrigated Farmland
I am also thinking of adding in Gideon, Martial Paragon but am a little unsure.
Now there is an additional win con with Approach of the Second Sun if it doesn't get de-spelled.

I would add as many Bristling Hydras as you can get. They end the game almost on the spot if they aren't countered due to the hexproof part.
I would cut a few lands for Attune with Aether since you don't have any Turn 1 plays anyway, its a good way to make some energy.
Greenbelt Rampager should be in here as well.

I like the basic idea, and actually more or less all your creatures too. But the support cards are... erhm... second choice, almost all of them (Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize being the exceptions).
Hero's Downfall: so much removal in black, and you pick this one... why? A deck that takes a bit of set-up (and this one does) is usually better of with something like Fatal Push, or Doom Blade/Go for the Throat (for budget). If you want something for the early part of the game, Abrupt Decay is pretty good. Since they are cheaper, they also go the graveyard sooner, for potential use as delve-fuel.
Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver doesn't really do anything with the rest of your deck. The reanimation is sweet, but depending on finding something specific in your opponents library seems like it could go very wrong.
Liliana, Death's Majesty is too expensive for a deck with 21 lands. Her +2 ability seems like it fits with your basic gameplan, but when she finally hits the table, your graveyard should already be filled with goodies.
Consulate Turret is a bit of... you get to shoot for 2 damage every 3 turns? That's not really the powerlevel of modern, is it?
Altar of the Brood is something I could see a combo on, but since there is no combo here, you just end up enabling dredgedecks or Snapcaster Mages. And with only one of these, you'll never get to the point where you can mill out your opponent.
Ever After funny card, super-powerful when you play it. But 6 cmc is not something for a deck with only 21 lands.
Ghoulcaller's Chant the idea of 2 cards for 1 card/1 mana, is attractive. Perhaps it works, perhaps not. Remove for game 2, because its a crap-card after opponent has boarded in graveyardhate.
Another card that could restart your zombies after a tablesweeper, could be Relentless Dead.

Like i said Walking Ballista does nothing for me but i appreciate you trying to sell me on it, alot of people try to say i should use it. As far as using Consulate Turret it helps pump every turn with Fabrication Module out. That combo alone throws people off because they are used to something different coming.
I like the Constrictor deck because it plays real good and throws people off there game. My build is based off of what has worked best for me thus far. I will switch out cards when things start to get bad, this is my 5th build of this deck so i know when things get bad. Plus you gotta realize i been playing magic since the very begining of time so i kinda got some deck building experience.
