Defiant Salvager Discussion

NewAgeDoom on Mono Black Artifact

It doesn't necessarily have to be about Juggernauts. This is just how the deck came from Card Kingdom, but as I mentioned in the OP, I really like the synergy between Defiant Salvager and Marionette Master, so anything that can either facilitate, or support that I'd be welcome to suggestions. Would something like the Animation Module Metallic Mimic Combo work for the deck?

NewAgeDoom on Mono Black Artifact

2 days ago

Hello everyone, as the title suggests, I'm playing around with Mono Black Artifact (The Black Metal battle deck from Card Kingdom to be exact), and I'm looking for some second opinions on what to actually take out/remove, as I'm not entirely familiar with the decktype. Advice is appreciated. A bit of a pre-note, I am rather enjoying the interplay between the Defiant Salvager and Marionette Master, so any ideas for promoting that would be appreciated. Anywho, on to the decklist:


4 Defiant Salvager

3 Marionette Master

4 Dhund Operative

4 Hedron Crawler

4 Galvanic Juggernaut

4 Juggernaut

2 Ramroller


2 Mortarpod

1 Executioner's Capsule

2 Sphere of the Suns


4 Tragic Slip


2 Quicksand

2 Blighted Fen

2 Mortuary Mire

1 Phyrexia's Core

17 Swamp

@RoyLancaster. Those would actually work well with the sacrifice/revive idea. I know I looked at a couple of those, but I'm not sure why I didn't think those would work well with the deck concept. Adding in!

I've got a Defiant Salvager, but I think that's the only one I have.

Maybe look into Sly Requisitioner, Defiant Salvager, Syndicate Trafficker, Underhanded Designs? I have at least one of each except the Trafficker, Tristan.

have you thought of using Voracious Null sac a creature for 2 1/1 counters, it's an expensive effect but using your opponents creatures to create 2 counters instead of Defiant Salvager or Syndicate Trafficker's add a counter get bigger strategy is what I use for my build of this deck.

I appreciate the input Asterfix! I haven't actually used it with Combustible Gearhulk yet, but I know that I really like Servo Schematic. I am going to try and work in the Workshop Assistant, because, well, that sounds really fun. Defiant Salvager is only a sorcery speed outlet so I steer away from it(my spirit mains u/b flash). What do you think of using Marionette Master in this build?

I'm building a deck similar to this, I came here looking for some cards I may have missed, this one is pretty awesome, I would take out Combustible Gearhulk and Servo Schematic for another free sac outlet, like Defiant Salvager or Ravenous Intruder - Also you can go infinite with Workshop Assistant. Have 3x Foundry Inspector out with 2x Workshop Assistant. Sac one, sac the other, get the other one back, play it for free, repeat.

Deck looks great. I'd suggest removing Hanweir Garrison and adding in more Defiant Salvager or Voracious Null. You could even drop a Gonti since he's legendary. You want to be consistent and stay true to the strategy.
