Addrum on All Your Base Are Belong To Us

8 hours ago

Threaten are all effects of "Gain control of target creature until end of turn". It comes from the card Threaten just as we call Wrath any form of mass removal because of Wrath of God. Those cards use too much space for what you can already get with Memnarch. It would be just better to use those slots to add draw engines and tutors.

The turn you cast Braids, it will help all of your opponents before your turn to drop something with her. Most of the time, when I see her, one person gets to use her ability and then she dies before her controller gets to his or her turn. If you curve well with your ramp, you'll not need her for your big drops. If you want to speed things up, replace her with Arcum Dagsson, Muzzio, Visionary Architect or Copper Gnomes.

There are tons of cheap mana rocks: Sky Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, Mind Stone, Star Compass, Fellwar Stone, Everflowing Chalice, Thought Vessel, Solemn Simulacrum, Vedalken Engineer, Foundry Inspector, Etherium Sculptor and Chief Engineer, just to name a few.

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

Izzet Signet fixes and ramps mana and is an artifact.

Psychosis Crawler lets you take advantage of all of your card draw, slugging opponents and getting huge in the process.

Solemn Simulacrum is a staple EDH card that ramps and gives card advantage when it dies.

Foundry Inspector makes your artifact spells cheaper, which is really useful to trigger Jori En's ability by playing multiple artifacts in a turn.

Phyrexian Metamorph is an excellent Clone variant that stays an artifact regardless of what it is copying.

Torrential Gearhulk has a hefty pricetag, but it is another way to cast two spells off a single card, and potentially during an opponent's turn.

Mind Stone, Isochron Scepter, Aetherflux Reservoir, Sensei's Divining Top, and Commander's Sphere all are useful artifacts that go well with your strategy.

nice deck, I like the idea!

If you want to add another win con, you can have Foundry Inspector with 1 mana artifacts, making them free and sacking them to Ravenous Intruder, and finally, punishing your opponent with Pia's Revolution, making them either take damage or have the onedrops recasted. I do like the deck though, interesting idea!

+1 for sure!

Sorry for the late responses everyone.

@HairyManBack, Thanks! May it live long and prosper.

@qctireuralex, I used to run Foundry Inspector in this deck, but I think the mana cost is just too much. I think it does not even help the combo that much if I run it, it just turns into some overkill nonsense.

@Melanthios, viperfang4, lord_blackfang, I've thought about it for a while, and I think I agree with you. I am gonna make some space in the sideboard, and get 2-3 in there. I think I like Unlicensed Disintegration over Anguished Unmaking for the reasons you guys discussed.

@Baselik, Yeah try it! It's so much fun! Let me know how well you did!

@Zangado, Thanks for playing! I will put it in the description. You're english is fine and im glad the deck worked so well for you! Yeah, the sideboarding is a problem, but not something this deck can really solve, if they sideboard that hard against you, maybe you should just try to sideboard Herald of Anguish and Implement of Malice in so you don't have to rely completely on Pia's Revolution.

@Melanthios, If you want to keep the deck idea and win conditions the same as this deck, I don't think there really is a non-budget version. The whole Pia's Revolution and artifact sac is just a cheesy, non-expensive strategy. I've tried to look at a non-budget version, and while I think it's definitely possible to make a non-budget version that would play a sub-strategy of this deck, I dont think this deck is a non-budget version of another deck.

@user:Wingus, Thank you! I think the changes you suggest are really interesting, and I am going to test them soon. I will let you know if I make any changes based on your comment.

Duuland I'll probably do that to start bring in two Thalia's and take out the riders....and sideboard in two Stasis Snare in place of Chaplain's Blessing the Stitcher's Graft is mean on vigilance tho and Always Watching I'm also considering. I have another deck tho where I use Sigarda's Aid and Always Watching flashing Stitcher's Graft or other equipment like Cathar's Shield and with Foundry Inspector u can free cast stitchers also use Sram, Senior Edificer lol sorry so long but it's fun hehe

Hey LithiumHD and iglesia777 thank you both for your comments.Your suggestions are really good, but since I'm only playing this in Duels I actually can't add some of those cards. I don't know why but I'm already at 100% completion in Aether Revolt and some of the best cards just won't show up. I'm currently trying to get a hold of some Foundry Inspector but I'm barely at 30% for Kaladesh. I'll make sure to include all these artifacts when I switch to MTGO.Thanks.
