Coretapper Discussion

hungry000 on Magistrate's Sceptor

1 week ago

I can tell you play more standard than modern or just started playing recently from your card choices; if you're building the deck around Magistrate's Scepter, it'll be a lot better to focus on that part of the plan rather than make a hybrid +1/+1 counter stompy deck that also kind of works with the Scepter like what you have now. I suggest you drop all the Glint-Sleeve Siphoners, Jadelight Rangers, Merfolk Branchwalkers, Rishkars, Adventurous Impulses, Diabolic Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition, Sorcerer's Wand, and Animation Modules, as they aren't necessary for the main plan (the Animation Modules are okay but they're not great).

Instead, it would be much faster and more consistent if you played some cards that can add charge counters to artifacts, such as Coretapper and Surge Node. They work well with Voltaic Servant, and you could also play some proliferate cards like Throne of Geth (which also works well with Voltaic Servant). Tezzeret's Gambit can proliferate and help find gas, and Ancient Stirrings fits perfectly in this deck since it can find Coretappers and Magistrate's Scepter. I think a more artifact-based deck is the way to go with this deck, the core of it would look something like this:

4 Magistrate's Scepter 4 Coretapper 4 Surge Node 3-4 Voltaic Servant 3-4 Voltaic Key

4 Ancient Stirrings 3 Tezzeret's Gambit

20ish lands (I don't really think you need Aether Hub but you could play it)

The rest of the deck you should fill out with combo protection, like 1-mana discard spells, maybe a couple Spellskite, etc. You could also consider going into Sultai or UG for the counterspells.

SynergyBuild on Moden Prosperity Bloom?

1 week ago

Paradox Engine lists with Temple Bell and Otherworld Atlas end up being a similar deck too. Everflowing Chalice, Astral Cornucopia, Surge Node, Coretapper, Tezzeret's Gambit, and with lands a full set of Inventors' Fair, Darksteel Citadel for the ones that use Mox Opal, the occasional Buried Ruin and Academy Ruins, and blue sources.

Then there are variants with Reshape and Lotus Bloom, Whir of Invention is in some, Mind Stone/Hedron Archive in others. Even some Voltaic Key's that I have seen.

Cereal_Killer on Lightning Coils (T4 Jank)

2 months ago

I know Coretapper is a good option, but why don't you add more dying creatures as Spark Elemental, Hellspark Elemental or Lightning Serpent? This will increase the chances to put some counters on Lightning Coils if you don't find Coretapper

For example I'd also add one/two more Hope of Ghirapur, since you could use it to prevent your things being countered and you will add more counters on the coils.

For the same reason I'd put some Sakura-Tribe Elder

Could some draw cards like Serum Visions or Opt help avoid a potential lack of cards in your hand?

TriusMalarky on Budget Esper Artifacts

Oh, Trading Post plus Mycosynth Lattice plus and infinite mana loop plus Voltaic Construct plus some way to turn Trading Post into a creature = infinite life and basically a tutor loop. Also, I recommend Elixir of Immortality to let you loop your graveyard through your deck over and over again.

Again, if you don't want to fit these in, they're expensive, but they are fun.

Oh, a budget combo: Voltaic Key plus Magistrate's Scepter plus Energy Chamber plus Coretapper = infinite turns. Of course, you need 5 mana available, but... it's EDH.

Really, you won't always see these combos, but when you do see the occasional one they are super epic. Oh, the Trading Post loop triggers Glassdust Hulk as well because the Goats are artifacts with Mycosynth Lattice.

I like this deck! It's similar to my Kurkesh with Cannon and Key that also revolves around Coretapper and Astral Cornucopia, and is kinda like a distand budged relative of this.

Salutations for finding Erayo, Soratami Ascendant. It's a cool card and I'm glad to find out about it!

I even have a suggestion for you: Freejam Regent. It dodges almost all removal in modern and is a solid finisher.

ArchFline on AEther Locked

@Iron_eye2 The issue with either of those additions is the added clunckyness and win more nature of the cards. I’m sure that you noticed that this deck runs an average CMC of 1.26. We can utilize Coretapper to empower our cheap X drop artifacts and ultimately create pseudo ramp. Our lock is not insanely consistent but it is reliable enough given what other measures we have to lock out our opponent. Most interaction occurs in the 1 or 3 mana slots, we abuse this fact by running effectively no 1 drops or 3 drops such that we maximize the value of our Chalice of the Voids. I can’t see makeong the additions that you mentioned because I do not believe that either of them serve to offer a better alternative to what we currently run. I appreciate the input though.

ersatz_olorin: I use Magistrate's Scepter in my Atraxa deck at the moment, Atraxa Artifacts.

I imagine the card would be hard to use unless your whole deck is focused on charge counters. My Atraxa deck is all about charge counters and proliferating, so it works well in there as a payoff card. When you're using cards like Energy Chamber, Coretapper, Astral Cornucopia, Voltaic Key, and Everflowing Chalice you can get enough mana to go infinite.

The easiest way is probably to use the Basalt Monolith & Rings of Brighthearth combo to get infinite colourless mana, then have a Voltaic Key to get infinite triggers.

Not really a competitive EDH strategy, but profilerating is alot of fun.

Mimic Vat, Coretapper and Dross Scorpion. Not infinite, but for each three mana lets you put 3 charge counters on Darksteel Reactor.

Also, I agree with Suns_Champion, Runnign Zur seems fun. Can get stuff like Tempered Steel as well.
