Ghirapur AEther Grid Discussion

I think Prototype Portal would be pretty busted for this deck. You could have it produce artifact lands or Sol Rings for nothing, make it a draw/burn engine with Pyrite Spellbomb, piss off your opponents with multiple Tangle Wire, or dump Sphere of Resistance after Sphere of Resistance making everything unplayable since the sphere's don't increase the cost of the activated ability and win through Ghirapur AEther Grid or your opponent's decking themselves by having a smaller library than yours. Even signets are fair game since it would be two mana to dump a colorless instant-speed Rampant Growth. The artifact spam will also make smokestacks work more disgustingly to your advantage as well as the aforementioned Ghirapur AEther Grid.

After careful consideration:

Winter Orb

Ghirapur AEther Grid (re-added)

Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer

Goblin Welder

Have been added to the mix. The Welder has been an all star in other artifact decks I have, like Breya. The mentality here is to weld something like an artifact land or essentially something I don't need contextually in favour of any stax card that may have been removed or countered. Similarly, Slobad is something I'm trying; sac'ing an artifact that may be hurting me more than opponents only to protect what I want seems worthy of tester slot. Almost makes me want to tinker with King Macar, the Gold-Cursed.

Out are things that have either been redundant or haven't been offering the same utility as others: Eidolon of Rhetoric, Vryn Wingmare, Loyal Retainers, Magus of the Tabernacle.

Magus is essentially a sideboard card whenever I'm dealing with token decks. It doesn't really put up enough to warrant a mainboard 99.

Ghirapur AEther Grid will help you abuse your orbs if your deck wants that.

Wheel of Fortune and Yawgmoth's Will both seem like they should be in here

Grand Abolisher, Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, and Defense Grid help stop those pesky blue decks.

Mother of Runes -- 'nuff said there

Cataclysm is great because it will likely lock down all opponents for the rest of the game.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury is pretty fun with Alesha

Victimize is great recursion.

If you feel like dumping mad money into this deck: Imperial Seal, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, and Imperial Recruiter

Overall, nice deck!! +1

entheogeneral I consider Affinity a favorable matchup mostly due to Lingering Souls and cheap removal. Pre board you have access to sweepers, GQ's and Stony Silence which makes the odds even better. The biggest concern is pre board is Ghirapur AEther Grid and Blood Moon.

Thanks for the feedback!

As far as splashing goes, it may seem cute but the cost is actually almost nothing; because the deck wants more than 4 Borderposts and more than 4 fetches but is primarily 2-color, it has a bunch of off-color sources available whether it uses them or not. The deck also has Mox Opal to provide off-colors, so at the end of the day we've got 13 red sources (could be moved around to be white sources instead) and the only cost is swapping 1 basic swamp for 1 basic mountain.

That said, I'm not convinced that Blood Moon or Ghirapur AEther Grid are the best sideboard options available and there could definitely be better options that don't require red. My gut instinct is that I'd rather have AEther Grid because it's also useful against decks without Stony like Affinity, Infect, or Elves; Mechanized Production seems great with Thopter-Sword though, and I would likely try it in a SB plan to shift focus to that combo.

Hello again!

I tried playtesting this deck and it felt...weird. It didn't output much offensive pressure, and it seemed to have too few proper stax cards to survive as a control deck.

(Obviously you just built it so it needs some tuning, of course.)

RW's best strength in control is land destruction. Thus, Armageddon, Cataclysm, Ruination, Razia's Purification etc could help you secure your victory once you drop a win-con.

Stax cards I would include: Static Orb, Winter Orb, Storage Matrix, Tangle Wire, Ghirapur AEther Grid, etc. And don't forget Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast: the best anti-control counterspells!

Smoke and Meekstone are good ways to lock down creature-based board states.

Have you taken a look at some of the Gisela stax/control decks on this site? They might help you find some more cards.

Leonin Shikari seems strange here. Might be a cuttable card.

What's your meta like? It's easier to tailor a hate package once you know your opponents' decks :)

Happy deckbuilding!

n0bunga and ehohenthal: Personally, I'd run either Ghirapur AEther Grid or Quicksmith Rebel to tap down Winter/Static Orb :)

Zaueski on What prison deck should I ...

I've never had more fun playing a prison deck than when I played Lantern Control. The deck is amazing at locking an opponent out of a game and watching the fear in their eyes as they slowly realize that they have no hope is so much fun xD If you choose to run Lantern at a GP, make sure you practice a lot with the deck or you will go to time every round. The deck is very flexible and can pick off resources in a million different ways. Crucible of Worlds + Ghost Quarter for mana denial, Ghirapur AEther Grid + Ensnaring Bridge for creature denial, and a healthy amount of mill for your main win condition.
