ZEDSHIFT on Amplifire Budget Combo Deck (The ABC’s of MTG)

How do you feel about a transformative sideboard into (or from) a Madness deck? Thinking of Demigod of Revenge , Fiery Temper , and Avacyn's Judgment personally. Also, Darksteel Colossus may be a better non-budget option than Emmy to get around GY hate.

Hear hear! I ran a few games with it last night and ran into mana problems, so I will have to adjust that accordingly. Madcookie Combustible Gearhulk is a great addition. I will try running that and Darksteel Colossus . Thanks for the advice! Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor Reality Shift and Mana Geyser deserve a try. Using Reiterate on the latter can be good fuel for an Xtra thicc Banefire or Comet Storm , which were actually the targets for Thousand-Year Storm . I've gotten the combo off successfully a few times and I can usually stall and pull off a lethal "x" in the late game. I think Mana Geyser has the potential to get that giant x spell off more consistently, so I will definitely try it out! Thank you all for the advice and suggestions. I am really enjoying building and playing this deck

Cutting lands is good and fun until you get your expectations subverted and got stuck with 3 lands the whole game. My opinion is a deck has to have around half its card dedicated to mana producing (lands, rocks, etc). As it is you are sitting at 43(35 lands and 8 mana rocks) and I'd strongly suggest you don't cut more. Keep in mind that Jhoira is relatively high-priority commander for Doom Blade and yolo casting her on turn 3 and expecting nothing happens to her so you can double suspend is either a pipe dream or an indication you are playing against beginners.

Also I think you could use a bit more card draw in the deck as I counted 5 or so spells. Maybe add Combustible Gearhulk in the place of that 8/8 Theros kraken.

Otherwise good deck. Cheers!

(I'd also run Obliterate with some indestructible bois like both Ulamogs, Darksteel Colossus , Blightsteel Colossus and the like, but its not for everyone's taste)

Homelessguy Thank you! I've been trying to get a Lim-Dul's Vault for the deck, but the new print (with way better art than Alliances) has been surprisingly tough to get. It's definitely on my list for improvements. Cunning Evasion is one from MH I've considered, but haven't tried yet. With multiplayer, it's very uncommon to have no "soft" target for Yuriko herself to swing at, so having to work around blockers comes up quite rarely.

I haven't quite gone in for the common super CMC spells such as Draco and Blinkmoth Infusion , as I want to avoid cards which don't serve any purpose other than Yuriko flips. Blightsteel Colossus and Darksteel Colossus are unique in their ability to reshuffle themselves in, as I can toss them to hand size and then tutor them back to the top the next turn (or possibly even in between activations, if I have Frantic Search to discard them).

One of the cards that has been announced for core set 2020 is [translated as] "Masterful Replication". It is a 6 cost modal instant (5 + Blue). Its effects are: create two 3/3 artifact creature tokens; or every artifact you control becomes a copy of target artifact you control.

Applications include:

  • Have an interesting time with an army of Master of Etherium or Darksteel Colossus or similar tough artifact creatures.
  • Have a stack of Genesis Chamber each making a token when you next cast something.
  • You could one shot someone during their upkeep with the sudden appearance of a board full of Iron Maiden .
  • With your Urza out during your opponents draw step, you could turn all of your artifacts into copies of Mind's Eye tapping them to pay their own cost drawing a mass of cards.
  • You could also win the turn after casting Mechanized Production by making all of your artifacts, including artifact lands, into copies of the artifact you enchanted.

Shimmer Myr is also a good card.

Also since you might find yourself attracting some artifact hate some indestructible artifacts might be a good include, such as Darksteel Ingot , Darksteel Relic and Darksteel Plate .

EDIT - added links

Some Maybeboard cards I think should be in the main deck: Benthicore , Inspired Sphinx , Kederekt Leviathan , Pentavus , Intruder Alarm , and Soothsaying . Myr Turbine and Heartstone are kind of meh, I'd replace with Genesis Chamber and Unstable Obelisk . I'd also swap some counterspells - Geist Snatch , Summoner's Bane and Lazotep Plating in for Cancel , Dissipate and Rewind .

Cards I'd cut: Sage of Epityr , Talrand, Sky Summoner , Bane of Bala Ged , Polymorphous Rush .

Cards I'm not really impressed by: Stormsurge Kraken , Tidespout Tyrant , Windreader Sphinx (depends how much flying you end up with), Sphinx Ambassador , Darksteel Colossus , Pathrazer of Ulamog , It That Betrays . I think it's better to focus on big guys that also have ETB effects than use these.

Some other cards to consider (plus the ones I sent you): Erratic Mutation , Synthetic Destiny , Evacuation , Aether Gale , AEtherize , Crystal Ball , Interpret the Signs , Precognitive Perception , Seer's Lantern , Ugin's Insight , Treasure Map  Flip, Zhalfirin Void .

@Madcookie I realize Edgar Markov is banned in 1v1. He bought the precon and then like 2 days later it got banned, so instead of it being a waste for him we've always just allowed it because we're just playing for fun, even if we are being competitive and trying to win. To be fair, I do play Prossh food chain against him and it's not fun getting comboed out on turn 6 or earlier either. Sol Ring is also banned in 1v1 but we build our decks for multiplayer for those rare times we actually play in a pod. We also follow multiplayer rules when we play 1v1 just because.

I agree with you about Spine of Ish Sah . The deck may not be focused on sacrificing artifacts, but I do have several ways to sac it and get repeated use out of it, and it's not hard to cast it for free. I'm also a fan of Hour of Devastation . Like you said, Edgar requires board wipes or you get over run, so I can't just rely on Blasphemous Act and it's costed well compared to other board wipes in these colors. I will be adding Cyclonic Rift when I can get another copy of it. Right now my 2 copies are in other decks.

I realize Tamiyo's Journal may be a little slow, but I want to give it a try. I know I'll probably replace it eventually, but like I said before, an artifact that creates more artifacts in an artifacts matters deck is good. Not to mention it's also card draw or a tutor. So it has versatility. Plus it basically requires my opponent have artifact removal in hand that they haven't used already on a board full of artifacts. If not, then it never just does nothing. Originally when pulling cards out for this deck, I had other cards that created clues in mind. But as cards were cut so were the other clue producers.

I know there are other combos with Mycosynth Lattice so I'll have to look into that. I'm not familiar with all the combos it has so it wasn't at the top of my mind when I was thinking of cards. Some other cards I think I need to add as I'm able to acquire them are Blightsteel Colossus , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Reshape , and Fabricate ... probably Darksteel Colossus and Emrakul, the Promised End too.
