Etched Champion Discussion

Glaze Fiend, Glaze Fiend, Glaze Fiend.

That little guy has won me way more matches than I expected. In my Mishra's Champions I also use Esperzoa to bounce my own artifacts to play more copies of them, making glaze fiend huge in the process.

I also really like Etched Champion for some nearly guaranteed damage or for a tough blocker.

Thanks to some other suggestions, I use Prophetic Prism to help with mana but even better to bounce and replay copies to accelerate later game card draw.

I've also been experimenting with Jester's Scepter for disruption and, if I keep bouncing/replaying it, an alternate win con as I exile their entire library...

Ok, here's my suggestion, using lands and then just the cards you've listed above here:

Now, this is probably the best you can build from what you have shown here. But there are improvements you can then work towards, as a lot of these cards aren't optimal. And depending on the format, some aren't legal (for instance, Counterspell isn't modern legal). I think the following would be a good place to start a decent shell to start a stronger deck from:

From that, you could start working towards something like this, in the longer term (most the additions are pretty cheap and affordable cards):

Hope this helps!! :)

GoblinElectromancer on BUDGET Tempered Artifacts

I used to play a budget affinity build very similar to this one. The only thing that I think it needs is a playset of Vault Skirge and one more Steel Overseer. I would cut 2 Etched Champion, and 3 Bomat Courier. I never tried this out with my build but All That Glitters looks great.

psionictemplar on Artifact Deck

I'm going to try and base this advice/suggestions by section.

Creatures: Since you have 32 it's probably safe to say you want to be an attacking deck. Knowing that I would try to up the numbers on Etched Champion and Shambling Suit since they will probably be some of your best damage dealers. Arcbound Worker could also be upgraded to Sparring Construct. I only say this because it can move it's counter to an ugin token when it dies and worker can't. Very niche situation, but still.

I'm also going to suggest a couple extra copies of the Foundry Inspector for speed purposes since it will assist with some of the later suggestions I am going to make.

Lands: It looks like a random pile, but since you don't have any color requirements, I really don't know what to suggest for it.

Artifact: There's a lot of things that don't really assist with the creature/attacking plan so I'd suggest cutting the Clock of Omens and almost all of the Elixir of Immortality. Skyblinder Staff doesn't seem particularly strong compared to Cranial Plating and could probably be switched into something else. What I'm thinking is moving the Mystic Forge to the main and trying to work in a couple additional copies. Possibly in place of a couple Howling Mine's. What, I do think would be an interesting idea would be trying a Grinding Station as an alternate win condition in case the damage plan won't work out. It gives you an out against random problems like Ensnaring Bridge.

Planeswalkers: I think your copy of Karn could probably be more useful as an additional copy of the Ugin the Ineffible for redundancy purposes. That and it will contribute to the Grinding Station idea a lot more smoothly. If you are wanting a karn in your maindeck I think Karn, the Great Creator could be the most beneficial to you, since it could open up a tutor path to your sideboard slots.

Sideboard: I'm going to say this on the assumption you have a Karn, the Great Creator.

What I think would be most beneficial would be a silver bullet type approach with cards like Damping Sphere or Meteor Golem, possibly even Spine of Ish Sah. This could be very customized to whatever you get used to playing against.

Anyhow, these are my thoughts and if you want me to give you quantities on changes, then I'll gladly offer you those as well.

Some thoughts:

  • I think you should always be looking to run the full playset of Arcbound Ravager. I think you should be aiming to run 4 Blinkmoth Nexus as well (if your coloured spells are too numerous to handle that, you’re running too many coloured spells).

  • Chief Engineer is an interesting choice, maybe pair it with ways to cause some nice indirect damage. I’m thinking 2-of Throne of the God-Pharaoh to allow you to tap-down all your creatures and really punish the opponent. Such a playstyle would benefit from some Smuggler's Copter also.

  • Other creatures i think should be heavily considered include Etched Champion, Signal Pest, and Vault Skirge. The Champion offers resilience, where as the other 2 offer decent early damage.

  • I don’t think you should run Architects of Will, it’s too slow and doesn’t do what an affinity deck wants to be doing (winning quickly). I’d also ditch Ensoul Artifact as it’s likely just going to get a killspell in response, losing you 2 cards. It’s also kindof clumsy/slow.

  • Metallic Rebuke and Remand are both sideboard cards at best, you don’t want them at all as part of your game 1 plan.

SufferFromEDHD on Equipment Deck Without White? What a great idea :P

Beat me to it. Dalakos, Crafter of Wonders is going to lead to interesting deck design without white. Will be adding my list to the site this week. As for your list, some suggestions: Goblin Engineer , Goblin Welder , Godo, Bandit Warlord , Trophy Mage , Etched Champion , Vedalken Humiliator .
