Darksteel Citadel Discussion

Thoughts on Darksteel Citadel? There's a bunch of ramp cards unique to artifacts too, I thought I should mention them. Etherium Sculptor, Foundry Inspector, Mycosynth Golem, Inspiring Statuary, Blinkmoth Urn, Krark-Clan Ironworks, Chief Engineer, etc. There's also Kuldotha Forgemaster, a damn good tutor. Thoughts on Argivian Restoration versus your Scarecrone? Clock of Omens versus your Unwinding Clock? It's arguably less useful but it has more control, especially in equipment decks and such.

Hope this helps

I like the idea. +1. I think you should cut down on your Eldritch Evolution targets; you could probably stick with about two in the main deck, like one Frost Titan as your main target and one Sire Of Insanity to really mess up any decks that rely on having a hand. You could leave the others in the sideboard to deal with various decks--for example, Sagu Mauler vs lots of removal, Massacre Wurm against tokens/swarm, etc.

Also, I'm not sure the eldrazi sub-theme is worth it. I think you could cut all of them for more affinity-type stuff (like Signal Pest, Vault Skirge, Darksteel Citadel, more Thoughtcast and maybe even Welding Jar). Lastly, if you are looking to up consistency, Reverse Engineer is probably worse than Thoughtcast, but a two-mana draw three is very decent.

Awesome deck! I love the concept, and I think I may actually build this.

However, I would suggest indestructible lands. Say you cast an indestructible land, then cast a bust effect. All lands except for that one land of yours will be destroyed. When your opponents stabilize and the creatures start coming out again, indestructible lands put you an entire turn above the curve, and allow you to cast a boardwipe a whole turn earlier. The two indestructible lands are Darksteel Citadel and Cascading Cataracts. I think the strip mine type lands are amazing in this deck, and so is vesuva if you manage to copy something good. I would also suggest adding 1-2 more mountains, cutting something else that's pointless like lightning bolt. (32 lands is kinda small, I think) this would ensure you always have enough mana to cast a boardwipe.

I think you could upgrade Pacifism, Doom Blade, Ultimate Price and Lightning Bolt into Darksteel Mutation, Snuff Out, Murderous Cut and Swords to Plowshares.
As for acceleration, Generator Servant seems like great fit. I don't understand why you are running Darksteel Citadel though. I can't see any useful synergies in your list. A couple of your tapped lands could make room for Dragonskull Summit, Sulfurous Springs, Caves of Koilos, Isolated Chapel, Clifftop Retreat or other untapped dual lands.
Hellkite Tyrant is another great dragon, i highly recommend it.

Hey, just stumbled upon your deck. One recommendation that I have for you is Artificer's Intuition. It works even better if you have some graveyard recursion because then you can discard fatties and recur them on turn 3-4.In your deck Artificer's Intuition can go fetch the following:

  1. Darksteel Citadel
  2. Seat of the Synod
  3. Vault of Whispers
  4. Sol Ring
  5. Skullclamp
  6. Everflowing Chalice
  7. Chromatic Star
  8. Executioner's Capsule

So... yeah that's 8 cards and you can add the other two artifact lands to help fix your mana. I love it in my deck.

Why are you playing Kozilek, Butcher of Truth? There's no denying that it's powerful, but it doesn't seem to fit the rest of the deck.

I'm not a huge fan of Living Plane, since it seems risky unless you have the other combo pieces.

What are your thoughts on including indestructible lands (Darksteel Citadel and Cascading Cataracts), since you have mass land destruction?

Like already mentioned, add a couple of Darksteel Citadel. If you play Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, they can also produce black mana so you don't have to worry about the 3x B cost.
