Engineered Explosives Discussion

I'm still saving up for Noble Hierarch and Engineered Explosives so I'm still using Birds of Paradise and Ratchet Bomb. Will definitely replace those as I get them. I'll try to get a playset of Stubborn Denial then test it out over Disdainful Stroke. Nissa, Steward of Elements seems like a pretty spicy tech, I'll test it out sometime.

Oh snap. Engineered Explosives and Pyroclasm both sound good. I am actually pretty in on explosives and will probably give it a try. Appreciate the suggestions!

Nice deck!

I might mainboard Noble Hierarch over Birds of Paradise for the Exalted triggers, and also mainboard Engineered Explosives over Ratchet Bomb for the sake of speed.

The sideboard looks excellent. Maybe Disdainful Stroke could be Stubborn Denial? Locally, we run a few Denials mainboard. We also run a few Nissa, Steward of Elements, over Matter Reshaper mainboard for more recursive card selection.

Have fun!

Trinket Mage and Engineered Explosives have no place in tron, period.

um, no offense, but are you even aware of how sunburst works? the card comes into play with a number of charge counters on it equal to the number of colors spent to cast it. in a mono color deck, Engineered Explosives would come into play with 1 charge counter at best, and would only be able to destroy nonland permanents with a cmc of 1. i'm guessing you thought it came into play with X charge counters, where X was the total amount of mana spent to cast it. but unfortunately, that is not the case.

Hey all. IzzetFanatic here. What do you think of Engineered Explosives as it is in the meta right now? Also how would it fit into a Mono U Tron deck. How many would we play... I'm leaning towards 1-0 in the main but tell me your thoughts.

Having played with and against Bogles many times, I have some suggestions.

  1. Cut Snake Umbra in favor of Spider Umbra, the umbras are critical to the early game, especially if you plan on playing Kor Spiritdancer. (Also, 3 cmc should be winning you the game, not drawing you cards in this type of deck)

  2. Get a Dryad Arbor if you want to upgrade, as it serves as both an additional creature and land, and is tutorable if you decide to get fetches.

  3. The sideboard needs tuning, Leyline of Sanctity is amazing at defeating things like this decks worst enemy, Thoughtseize, it also works against Lilli, and and many other fringe cards like Blessed Alliance, that can destroy most of this deck's gameplan. If you decide that is too much $$, good budget options to look into are Torpor Orb and Suppression Field. Also, Seal of Primordium is the best artifct disruption you can have, since you can play it and destroy something like a Chalice of the Void on one.

  4. You need Stony Silence, decks like Tron are great at destroying this deck since cards like Oblivion Stone set you back to square one. Stony silence will also allow you to get past cards like Ratchet Bomb and Engineered Explosives and will slow down decks like Ad Nauseeum that you cant interact with.

  5. You might ant to look into getting Temple Garden over Brushland, because since Bant Eldrazi took all the painlands and jumped the price, the shocks can actually be cheaper to buy and will be more beneficial for you in the long run.

These are my suggestions, feel free to take them as you please.


xeratheenigma on Urborg in U Tron

Most times I see people play urborg in a spell slot as it neither is a blue land or a tron land. The big takeaways are the fact that it will let destroy any one nonbasic land using Sundering Titan, it allows you put a second counter on Engineered Explosives though I've found if I'm in a spot where I can spend three mana on dismember I'm typically in a pretty advantageous position already.

I'd suggest River of Tears as an alternative option as it functions as a blue source roughly half the time and also gets around choke
