clayperce I was so excited about Vehicles becoming playable again that I COMPLETELY overlooked the foil that good thing option.

I'm having so much fun with this deck at the moment!

Then I will play it at Standard Showdown, get wrecked, and end up hating it.

Until then wheeeeeeeeee!!

I see you've already considered Eager God-Pharoah ... but have you considered it In Foil?

This deck doesn't work.

You have a lot of cards that require Creatures to either Crew them, or attach Equipment to, yet you have only 11 Creatures in your deck.

A lot of those cost 4CMC or higher, meaning that your Opponent can run away with the game before your deck even gets warmed up.

Some of them can't solo Crew Vehicles that are Crew 3 or higher. Ornithopter and Consulate Skygate can't Crew anything, unless they are being pumped up.

Equipment falls off Vehicles once they stop being Creatures, so you have to keep equipping it to them.

Putting Eager Construct in this deck would help, for a start. So would Walking Ballista.

My Brawl deck has a Vehicle focus, but that isn't its only focus. It is also aggro. I think this deck would be better with a lot more Creatures, and maybe a secondary theme.

Feels odd to not have Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Felidar Guardian + Karmic Guide in here for a Buried Alive pile that just wins with a Reanimate.

Also, in order to keep most tables at bay, you might want creatures that make it harder for people to execute their gameplans: Ethersworn Canonist, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Eidolon of Rhetoric, Aven Mindcensor, etc. You can find slots for these cards by cutting some lands and some of the relatively do-nothing cards like Eager Construct. Please don't help your opponents.

You're going to want more artifact ramp in these colors: all the signets in these colors, Fellwar Stone, Prismatic Lens, Chrome Mox, and, if you can afford them, Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, Mana Vault, Grim Monolith. They will speed up your deck considerably while also allowing you to run slightly fewer lands.

I must own this card, now.

It is the new Eager Construct

I was thinking Eager Construct nice bear with scry ability. Heart of kiran doesnt count as a creature, to set off Scrap Trawler. Watchers of the Dead for graveyard hate.

First things first, you should change the format of the deck to casual since Counterspell is not legal in Modern.

With that being said I think the idea is neat but you need to streamline your deck. the more 3's and 4's you have the better consistency your deck is going to have. Drop a lot of the mediocre 2's like

Aeronaut Tinkerer

Aether Swooper

Aether Theorist

Aspiring Aeronaut

Eager Construct

Scrapper Champion

and go up to 3's and 4's of the better cards like

Thopter Engineer

Whirler Rogue

Chief of the Foundry

Lightning Bolt

Some other good Artifact stuff you may have overlooked

Hangarback Walker

Pia and Kiran Nalaar

Bomat Courier

Spire of Industry

Ensoul Artifact + Ornithopter 5/5 flyer on turn 2

Darksteel Citadel+Ensoul Artifact 5/5 indestructible on turn 2

Cranial Plating

Etched Champion

Galvanic Blast


Master of Etherium

Argy on I own every Chandra

9 months ago

I have a few other cards that I carry with my Chandras:

  • Eager Construct - best Magic card ever made, Scrying beats Flying
  • Enlarge - the first piece of art I fell in love with
  • Black Cat - the second piece of art I liked
  • Runeclaw Bear - the first bear card I ever owned
  • Totally Lost - I found this among some junk singles and fell in love with Fblthp
  • Switcheroo - I love the entire flavour of this card
  • A Buffy Jenny Callendar card, coz she was cool
  • A custom Diabolic Tutor card I made with me dressed as Chandra and the LGS owner whispering in my ear (he has long, black hair)
  • Storm Crow - you kind of have to

I also have Rock, Paper, Scissors but mine are foil copies of Meteorite, Jayemdae Tome, and Ensoul Artifact

I think I should go back to my project of collecting every copy of Lava Axe that has ever been printed.

I need to complete my Minotaur collection, too. I have all the Creatures, but I need stuff like Didgeridoo.
