Ghostfire Blade Discussion

LeaPlath on tez gave me some life

You are splitting your win cons, mostly between infect and normal damage. Stick to normal damage.

So ideally you want a land base of fetchlands, fastlands and a few shock and utility lands. With 4 Darksteel Citadel. About 22 lands.

For creatures, Vault Skirge is good, but there are also cards like Smuggler's Copter who benefit from Tezzeret and Ensoul.

You also have Tezzeret's Touch as extra copies of Ensoul Artifact and Ghostfire Blade to buff the artifacts on the cheap.

Ghostfire Blade seems really weird here. What's the purpose?

Thanks for the comment HehaGardenHoe. If I were to make this Frontier ready I'd add red for Shrapnel Blast and cut Tezzeret's Touch to 2-3 copies. I'd of course add Ghostfire Blade and Darksteel Citadel as well.

Thanks for the comment JgamerJ. I am aware it's not in standard but it would be legal in the new Frontier format that HehaGardenHoe is referencing.

I like Ghostfire Blade as well as Frogmite. I will have to consider them.

Ghostfire Blade might be good in this also did you think about the original affinity cards like Frogmite ?

Most things with one or two Ghostfire Blades do the same.
Just realizing that this deck is split a bit between the Artificer version of Ensoul (technically a 4 color deck) and the more heavy artifact version (UR or WUR), and it allows me to understand why the are split.

I have found that Ornithopter doesn't do anything by itself, and there have been plenty of times where I have not been able to get out my ensouls, but have been able to kill via vehicles due to having things like Hope of Ghirapur, Bomat Courier and Merchant's Dockhand. Which is the same reason I don't recommend Ghostfire Blade, as having those creatures is quite important.

Remember that the meta has much fewer one drops so you are perfectly fine running them. Also, having more vehicles as your targets is better than having an ornithopter as your target as they can't Lightning Strike or Grasp of Darkness in response. Aethersphere Harvester makes it so that they can't Fatal Push it either, and is excellent against Atarka Red.

Also remember that Hope of Ghirapur can protect you from removal and counterspells on your stuff so you can safely play your ensouls more often.

I agree on the Metallic Rebuke and Heliod's Pilgrim.

Dorotheus on Esper H8-Souls

You don't need Metallic Rebuke, Stubborn Denial is the Ensoul counter of choice, and Ornithopter is an Ensoul target first, and a Ghostfire Blade target second. Heliod's Pilgrim package pushes the midrange of the deck, and I think it could be a decent sideboard, but don't think it's a good idea mainboard. Restoration Specialist is gas, and I'm going to have to a get a couple for my Turbo Ensoul deck.
