Dross Scorpion Discussion

acbooster on mikaeus and ballista?

1 week ago

I'm not quite sure what your asking here about them working or not.

Mikaeus will give the Ballista +1/+1, making it a base 1/1. In order to remove all of the counters from the Ballista and have it die, you would have to have it deal 1 damage to itself in order to have lethal damage marked.

This can get into an infinitely repeatable loop for anything that triggers on an artifact or creature entering or leaving the battlefield, e.g. Blood Artist and Dross Scorpion.

I hope this answers any questions you had

I wouldn't expect anyone to actually own Candelabra of Tawnos but if you ever get one, it would be fun. Extruder just has so many combos. Dross Scorpion can also do some fun combos.

Dross Scorpion goes infinite with a lot of cards you already have.

Rings of Brighthearth because.

Lotus Bloom with prototype portal. At worst, it's 3 free mana.


Precursor Golem

Conjurer's Closet

Cauldron of Souls

Scorched Ruins

Lotus Vale

I use Clock of Omens and Dross Scorpion because of the untapping shenanigans they can do with Breya.

Have you considered adding Dross Scorpion and Splinter Twin? Elemental Mastery and Intruder Alarm is also a fun wincon. Awesome deck, you gave me plenty of ideas for mine. Thanks for sharing!

Yeah, I actually have quite a lot of cards in common with you. I actually have a lot of your lower end wants that I don't have listed on my binder in addition to our matches.

I don't have my cards with me at the moment, but I'm pretty sure I have all of the following: Dross Scorpion, Clock of Omens, Trinket Mage, Disciple of the Vault, Treasure Mage, Nihil Spellbomb, Faithless Looting, Thopter Assembly, Seat of the Synod, Great Furnace, Vault of Whispers, Basalt Monolith, Prototype Portal, Mirrorworks, Thirst for Knowledge, Nim Deathmantle, Reshape, Ancient Den, Eldrazi Displacer, and Vedalken Orrery (Total: $31.39) (Might be like $2 less depending on how much Ancient Den is actually worth.)

Also,in addition to Master Transmuter I also have some of your other higher end wants that I keep unlisted: Chromatic Lantern, Sculpting Steel, Phyrexian Metamorph, All Is Dust, Wurmcoil Engine, and Rings of Brighthearth (Up to: $102.61), but since these are all commander staples I probably won't want to trade them... unless I'm really tempted...

I'll look though my cards when I can and let you know if any of that's missing

The things I'm most interested in from your binder are: Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Monastery Mentor, and Demon of Dark Schemes. (I don't think I'm likely to trade for Crucible of Worlds at the moment.)

Let me know what you think.

Nim Deathmantle and Ashnod's Altar along with either Whirler Rogue or Pia and Kiran Nalaar gives you infinite Thopters and/or colorless mana. Mirrorworks and Prototype Portal can be fun. The portal can be abused with Unwinding Clock, Clock of Omens, and/or Dross Scorpion. You can Imprint Great Furnace or Seat of the Synod and produce lands for . A land during each opponents turns with Unwinding Clock.

I see you have Grand Architect but no Pili-Pala? I don't see Daretti, Scrap Savant as well.
