Crush of Tentacles Discussion
2 days ago
cut Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar, Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep, Greater Good, Pemmin's Aura, Edge of Autumn, Gitaxian Probe, and Crush of Tentacles first off. You need to round out your curve. It's really out of wack.
You are conflicting with your ideas here and it will bite you later. You have really high CMC creatures with a lot that don't do much on cast and are more build around cards, but then you are sending everything back to the hand with a ton of board wiped, but if you have a bunch of high CMC, non-ETB value creatures how are you supposed to cast a board wipe like that effectively? Either run high cmc cards or play the boardwipes with combo not both. You also have a lot of very power, expensive cards like snapcaster and crucible, but the reason those cards are good is because of the other powerful cards that you can abuse with them, but in this case you are running cards that don't abuse them. I don't understand why you wouldn't go for more staples found on EDHREC, and cut the very expensive cards you clearly don't want to take advantage of right now.
You also have no central theme. You say landfall power-matters, but you've cut all of the landfall out, so we're left with another jumble of cards that don't always work well with each other. What about Voltron? Your goal seems to be either the possibility of an OTK with your deck, or control. If you want to go for the control route, please lower your average CMC after you fix your curve. You do not want to cast 4cmc cards to give you a slight upside. Look at the cards in EDHREC for control decks and play those cards that are staples. More counterspell, more draw, and for all things that are holy please play better ramp. You need more artifacts and your current spells are crappy sorceries. Don't go for giant high-cmc spells that payoff only after you've played 6 lands. Go for consistency and at bare-minimum success.
I do like the voltron theme better though, like a sort of wait around deck that throws down equipment in one turn, and then turns on Arix to smash for lethal.

Thanks everyone for the comments! Individual replies below.
BolasFucks: Phyrexian Processor certainly can make a big token, but the life cost is risky and the tokens don't trample. Angrath's Marauders and Borderland Behemoth can frequently deal more than 40 damage for each token without having to pay life. Mechanized Production is a good alternate wincon and also a way to copy an artifact, but currently most of the things in this deck worth copying are nonartifact, and it needs to last through all my opponents' turns before I can win with eight artifacts of the same name.
Ben773: The myriad cards are decent but not the most powerful things to be doing. Crush of Tentacles removes all the tokens we have already made. Precursor Golem tokens are vulnerable to spot removal on the original. Gold-Forge Garrison 4/4 is not worth it. Copying the 5/1 tokens from Rite of the Raging Storm means they all get sacrificed at end of turn. Metallurgic Summonings is already in the deck. Infinite Reflection costs a lot of mana and only affects nontoken creatures. Mirror Mockery tokens can't be copied since they only appear after Brudiclad's trigger is over. Flameshadow Conjuring is a card I quite like from my other decks and might try out in this. Inferno Titan dealing 3 additional damage per token is quite little. I'm trying to include a few more card advantage options. I do have Pact of Negation and Spell Swindle as counters. I might also include Force of Will and Swan Song as low mana cost options.

Cool deck! Here are a few ideas, what do you think?
Tokens : Broodbirth Viper, Warchief Giant, Crush of Tentacles, Precursor Golem, Gold-Forge Garrison, Rite of the Raging Storm, Metallurgic Summonings. Copy : Infinite Reflection, Mirror Mockery, Flameshadow Conjuring. Payoffs : Inferno Titan
I am a bit concerned about CA/QA, what about Combustible Gearhulk, Sensei's Divining Top, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Mystic Confluence or Sai, Master Thopterist? Also, you did not include any counterspell?

Here are my personal recommendations (with help from n8dm) for cards to add and cut from the deck. Let me know if you have any questions about cuts or recommendations.
