Essence Extraction Discussion

DanaBarrosReincarnate on Bad Touch! Or is it?

why not run a more consistent # of the cards that synergize the most efficiently with Tezzeret's Touch/Mechanized Production?

i'd add: 2x Ornithopter, 2x Contraband Kingpin, 3x Foundry Inspector, 4x Scrapheap Scrounger, 1x Herald of Anguish, 1x Inspiring Statuary, 1x Reverse Engineer, 1x Pacification Array, 4x Fatal Push, 2x Battle at the Bridge, 2x Metalspinner's Puzzleknot, 2x Yahenni's Expertise, 1x Scrap Trawler

& take out: 4x Dhund Operative, 1x Pendulum of Patterns, 1x Walking Ballista, 2x Treasure Keeper, 4x Tezzeret's Simulacrum, 1x Essence Extraction & cut the land down to 22 or 23. the curve might not be perfect, but it's a start at least lol

Temur coloured summonings decks? I believe the only ones with success are Dimir coloured.

Also, your deck seems to fall flat against aggro due to only running 5 removal spells, 2 of which are sorcery and can't hit vehicles. Have you considered Fatal Push, Murder, Essence Extraction and To the Slaughter? I'm taking it your budget is stopping you from running a playset of Torrential Gearhulk? That card is nuts in a summonings deck.

Also I believe Saheeli's Artistry requires a target before you can cast it, therefor you would need a creature on the board beforehand.

Essence Extraction is used when if the creature dies you need up with x damage situations which is very common where I play. As for animation and yehenni I have players who use lost of artifact destruction over creature destruction and as long as i have the mana to pay for it I will. Thanks for you opinion and i would deffo use Murder instead PW_Ian_Bolas

I'm very sure that Murder is WAY more reliable than Essence Extraction, I don't know why people are still trying to make that card sound like it is worth, also I strongly suggest cutting one module for the third Yahenni, Animation is good and synergises well with the deck but playing a full set of a card you don't need 2 in battlefield is not a great idea.

After playing against the deck, I think another Fatal Push and another Essence Extraction might be better than the two Battle at the Bridge. This deck is legit.

I like the idea of adding the fourth Gearhulk but I won't take the Essence Extraction out. It's much better than people think it is and it's actually one of my favorite removal spells that I run.

I'm running a similar deck. I've got 2 Essence Extraction in the main and 2 more in the side. It's probably one of my favorite removal spells that I run. The 3 damage kills quite a lot and the 3 life helps more than you would expect.
