Darksteel Colossus Discussion
2 days ago
Don't forget that Artisan of Kozilek, Oblivion Sower and the other various eldrazi won't trigger their "when you cast" abilities when Braids puts them into play. You might feel they're big enough to be worth it anyway, but you might also want to replace some (particularly the sower!) with something like Darksteel Colossus, Blightsteel Colossus and/or Quicksilver Gargantuan. I also feel like this is the type of deck that could easily make use of Rush of Knowledge!

Cool deck, I have some suggestions though!
I don't know if your budget allows it, but Blightsteel Colossus is usually better than Darksteel Colossus. Also, Lightning Greaves would help your plan a lot, since it gives haste to both Kuldotha Forgemaster and the creature you cheat into play.
Artificer's Intuition seems underpowered in your deck, why not run Trinket Mage, Whir of Invention or Thirst for Knowledge instead?
I get that you benefit from having cheap artifacts in play, but is Ornithopter really the best choice? Welding Jar offers more utility, unless you desperately need a blocker.
As far as I can see, Animation Module only interacts with the four modular creatures in your deck. I think you either need a lot more synergy to make the Module worthwile (somewhere around 15-20 cards with counters), or you should cut it.

I'm not sure about Darksteel Colossus in this deck. Blightsteel Colossus seems like it would fulfill that same role but better, since you're only ever really gonna reanimate either of them and one swing from Blightsteel is a lot better than one swing of Darksteel. Also I think some more artifact ramp like Gilded Lotus would be much better than Tibalt. Tibalt is kinda just useless. Also I'm not sure about Keranos fitting with the game plan of this deck, and he could be easily replaced by Rune-Scarred Demon.
I like the deck though! Seems sweet, I hope those suggestions help :)

Weakness of the triassic egg-deck is taht it needs 10 mana just for the egg to hatch, as well as tapping the egg 2 times. You can't really play the egg until turn 3 in modern, but you could make it turn 2 (manadork turn 1, Simian Spirit Guide turn 2. No mana to spare at any point here, and you've spent 5 cards out of your opening hand just playing the d*mn thing. That means very little defense - no protection against discard (in modern...), no protection against "destroy target egg", no way to get out of Pithing Needle-effects. Oh, and any counterspell, anywhere along the way, and it will take much longer.
But if it succeeds: Turn 3, tap. turn 4, tap, crack. Somewhere along the way, a creature tutor of some sort is needed. And you'd still need to not be disrupted by all of the above. Then you get your creature, and then you have this one turn for winning. Griselbrand? Not a good creature when you are low on life (which you would be). eldrazi titan? Not optimal either, leave the graveyard as soon as they get there, they lack haste and their abilities are triggered on casting, not on ETB. Darksteel Colossus seems better. But that can still be handled in a pile of ways, and it still lacks haste. So, all in all, if you go for as fast an egg as possible, you'll end up giving your opponent 4 or 5 turns to hit you as hard as they can, and you get to pretend being a goldfish trying to hatch a dinosaur egg while they do so. Good luck, goldfish, both with the egg and your survival.
Of course you could go with a longer-running plan - like building a control-shell and using the egg to hurry up your win condition. That would put the egg in comparison to Nahiri, the Harbinger. Also at a mana cost of 4. Also taking a couple of turns to work. But doesn't eat your mana while doing so. Also, and this is important for combofinishing, finding a threat in your library and giving it haste.
And then there is modern, where discard spells are almost as common as Force of Will in legacy, and sideboards always have good hatecards against artifacts (because affinity and lantern control) and graveyards (because grishoalbrand and dredge) and sometimes just randomly against combo. Plenty of good removal, and plenty of removal that circumvents the simple keyword protections.
There has to be a really good reason for playing this egg, rather than any other way of cheating creatures in.

Ya, too bad it's not an artifact so you can sac it to Breya.
What about Shape Anew? Breya and her thopters are artifacts, and it hits Darksteel Colossus, and Blightsteel Colossus which should be in the deck (unless there are budget concerns, he's pretty pricy). Hitting Quicksilver Amulet/Deathrender/Proteus Staff isn't bad either.
