Funkydiscogod on Artifact Combo deck - any ...

I've been brainstorming, and Steel Overseer was also printed in M11. You could make a very modern-like affinity deck, since many of the current modern artifact staples came out of the Scars of Mirrodin block: Vault Skirge Memnite Signal Pest Galvanic Blast . Then, either Mox Opal or Etched Champion in your mythic slot.

The "within 8 standard sets" means you can't get the whole Alara block and the whole Scars of Mirrodin block, but you can get part of each. I would probably go with Conflux/Alara Reborn/Magic 2010/Zendikar/Worldwake/Rise of the Eldrazi/Magic 2011/Scars of Mirrodin. That way, I could fill it out with more artifact creatures that like artifact creatures, like Court Homunculus Salvage Slasher Arsenal Thresher Glassdust Hulk .

-4 Gingerbrute +4 Faerie Miscreant Sometimes draws you a card and still has evasion. Haste on a 1 power creature isn't that great.

-4 Weaselback Redcap +4 Augur of Bolas Weaselback is a bad card augur is a premium 2 drop in the format.

-1 Mana Leak +1 Counterspell Counterspell is just strickly better if you can pay the UU cost which you will once you change the manabase.

-4 Izzet Guildgate +4 Evolving Wilds Shuffle is good for brainstorm but mainly it gets snow lands for skred.

-1 island -1 mountain +2 Terramorphic Expanse or Ash Barrens if you can afford it.

-4 Negate +4 Accumulated Knowledge You ideally have 8 real card advantage spells in 4 ninja and 4 accumulated knowledge. You can replace the ninjas with more cantrips to find draw spells but you need some draw.

-4 Opt -4 Thrill of Possibility -1 Chain Lightning -2 Shock +4 Preordain +4 Ponder +3 Brainstorm Uut with bad cantrips in with better ones and shock is just not good enough for pauper not even in burn. Chain lightning isn't BAD but it also isn't as good as Brainstorm

-4 Galvanic Blast +4 Skred Main reason to go red is for Skred .

Add snow lands for Skred and play only 2 Snow-Covered Mountain s and the rest in Snow-Covered Island s. My suggestions put you way more into blue. Snow covered lands are 50 cents each but worth it. 4 Ninja of the Deep Hours will run you around $7-$8 but if you have pauper events at your store I would sudgest "investing" in them because they will help you win. IF your store is just casual pauper then you may not want to bother with that.

Modern has a bunch of efficient 1 drops and cards that care about artifacts. Even on a budget there are cards like Ardent Recruit / Toolcraft Exemplar , Shrapnel Blast , Galvanic Blast , Dispatch etc.

The vehicle most likely to see play, oddly enough, might be Consulate Dreadnought , if there are high-power creatures that can't attack (like ahmonket gods, Slumbering Dragon or Lupine Prototype ) right now though, everything falls just shy.

I'd focus on playing 1 and 2 cost spells, with creatures that can reach 3 power to crew or attack turn 2/3, and burn spells (shrapenel blast and boros charm) to finish up. Heart likes turn 3 plainswalkers, so I'd hunt through the list of three drop walkers to drop something somewhat efficient- Saheeli, Sublime Artificer might make the cut, as copying an animated dreadnought is pretty scary.

Which of Galvanic Blast , or Bolt, Lightning Axe , or some other that deals 4,5 damage to target creature OR player for 1,2,3 cmc, to go with Goblin Grenade , Shrapnel Blast , in my Kuldotha,Bushwhacker, battlecry deck.

I have:

60 cards, 21 lands.

4 Mox Opals. 4 memnites 4 Signal Pest 4 Darksteel Citadels

16 artifacts.

4 Kuldotha Rebirths

4 Goblin Bushwhacker 2 Goblin Piledriver 2 War Driver 2 Goblin Chieftain 2 Goblin Rabblemaster

4 Goblin Grenade 4 Shrapnel Blast 3 of 1 other either Galvanic Blast, Bolt, Lightning Axe, or some other that deals 4, 5 damage to either creature or player.

My thoughts:

Galvanic Blast: 16 artifacts may not be enough because of Kuldotha Rebirth, and Shrapnel blast.

Lightning Axe: doesnt do damage to player and creature

Bolt: only does 3 damage to creature or player.

So what which direct damage card should I use?

If you want something that doubles as a Mana source and finisher, then you may add some Guardian Idol to the mix. I've tried many different versions of this deck, and Implement of Combustion is a card you want to keep in consideration as well. A card that also worked for me is Staggershock which can take a couple critters out of the board, and if you decide to pack some more artifacts, then don't forget Galvanic Blast . Cheers

Thanks rjphilla :)

While I agree those cards are all great, I really can't afford to add anything that isn't an artifact.

For each time a card like Galvanic Blast is good, there are gonna be 3 times where it's preventing my gameplan.

Ghostfire Blade is interesting though. The problem is, of course, that I have to have mana to use it. Maybe if I made my mana producers 4-ofs, it could work. And that's definitely something to consider. I might test that out some time.

Cheers

This deck is awesome! Literally "drew" 100 hands and it's very consistent. Mox Opal is on point. I might add a few more lands for either blue or red. Galvanic Blast is too good and Ensoul Artifact too spicy. Maybe add Ghostfire Blade too

awesome deck. I have a similar one. you can definitely cut 3-4 lands maybe even 5 running Springleaf Drum ! and since you're already running red may I speed your deck up and suggest 4 Galvanic Blast s!!!! or even a double strike card like Assault Strobe or Temur Battle Rage
