Destructive Tampering Discussion

Cragon18 on U/R: Thopter Production

I think the idea is great, but there are several areas I would make some cuts. Just FYI, I have built a Mechanized Production deck and found that Clues are better than servos or thopters because they are harder to interact with than creatures. That said, a deck that powers out either could win just as easily without mechanized production so your deck is certainly fine in that regard.

I would add Metallic Rebuke that can easily be a 1 mana Mana Leak with all of your artifacts. I would remove Efficient Construction. You currently only have 6 artifacts to cast. That is far to few to get the benefit of that card (Thopter Spy Network it is not). Also, I would cut or only run one Whirlermaker. It is also a very slow card. I think Destructive Tampering is more of a sideboard card. I tried Reverse Engineer in my Mechanized Production deck and ultimately cut it for Glimmer of Genius. It is just better, and instant speed is much better as well. I would cut Filigree Crawler in favor of more Metallic Mimic and maybe an additional Pia Nalaar I wouldn't go above 3 of her due to legendary status. Metallic Mimic would help with beatdown strategy and would also count towards Mechanized Production. Pia is just a great card for a variety of reasons. Her second ability has won me a fair share of games. Overall, I like the deck and think it could be solid. It just needs to be focused down a bit. Best of luck and happy brewing!

Hmmm.. no Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet price point? I would main board Indulgent Aristocrat as well. How ever you asked for SB help, No artifact hate? I.E. Destructive Tampering. Stensia Banquet if you need draw nutrion.Kari Zev's Expertise for the when facing the stronger midrange deck. Just a few ideals.

Cogwork Assembler ability is useless, due to how fast the games are in Tiny Leaders. I would cut Foundry Inspector for some better creature as well.

In red you could use Vandalblast to deal with artifacts, but if you're fine with Destructive Tampering, that's ok. Consulate Dreadnought crew cost is too high and Pacification Array don't worth a slot, imho. Put some removal or burn spells in there. Same with Welding Sparks, a Lightning Bolt or a Lightning Strike are better 'cause they can reach your opponent life. Oblivion Ring, Banishing Light and Journey to Nowhere are better removals that the ones you are using, but a Path to Exile and a Swords to Plowshares are best options.

From your maybeboard, Sin Prodder is an excellent card, but you should consider Mentor of the Meek. The manabase can be improved and I would put one more land in there, the average CMC is too high, but it's optional.

Cut Pia's Revolution, Destructive Tampering and Matter Reshaper from the SB at least. Add some more removal like Release the Gremlins instead.

I chose Destructive Tampering for the second effect, since many aggro decks (Vehicles, G/B) Just don't have flyers to block chomp you, also it would a sidboard choose. Anyway thanks for your feedback :)

Oh also against decks that have a lot of little creatures you mighht want additional copies of Yahenni's Expertise to bring in.

Same holds true for Destructive Tampering against artifact decks
