Goblin Welder Discussion

Hi Optimator, saw you upvoted my Yasova Dragonclaw deck so I thought I'd take a look at what you have. You were saying you have some problems with ramp, and I run feldon in my Daretti, Scrap Savant deck and my Alesha, Who Smiles at Death deck. Absolutely amazing but daretti in this deck would be absolutely bonkers. Free discard and draw, Goblin Welder ability and eventually immortal artifacts! But for ramp I'd recommend Springleaf Drum, Mycosynth Wellspring, and Soulbright Flamekin. Springleaf is something I pair with 0 drop creatures like Ornithopter on turn 1 for steady COLORED mana, mycosynth works amazingly in sac decks where you can abuse its etb/ltb effects, and soulbright is a little known gem for turning 6 mana into 8 red AND giving trample for some of your larger dragons or eldrazi. All budget includes and far from being overplayed staples. But I like your dragon take on the deck I've always thought dragons and artifacts go hand in hand. Keep it up this one's fun!

Sweet looking deck. Personally I'm a huge fan of Liquimetal Coating with Kiki; seems like it'd be pretty good in your deck with Goblin Welder, Vandalblast, Manic Vandal, etc. It's especially nice with Hellkite Tyrant. Krark-Clan Ironworks and Trading Post are also cheeky with the coating. Awesome deck though, love the idea of Stigma Lasher.
P.S. although it's pricey, Sneak Attack is amazing!

Seems like you can run anything as a commander if you really want to. This guy seems best in a deck centered around card advantage artifacts such as Spine of Ish Sah and Ichor Wellspring. Obviously it is a bit mana hungry so a lot of artifact centered ramp seems like a necessity. Playing Goblin Welder and Trading Post could continue to help you grind unneeded artifacts into more value.
Short answer, really any legend with a somewhat unique ability can be built around IMO.

Hello Friend. IMO.

Dangerwillrobinson79, other than being able to reacquire Mycosynth Lattice or a Liquimetal Coating were they to be removed, Goblin Welder would only be situationally useful in this deck I think. The permanents turned into artifacts and destroyed cease to be artifacts once they hit the graveyard, meaning that Goblin Welder would only have valid targets for your opponent if he/she had any true artifacts in their graveyard. Mycosynth Lattice simply makes cards not in play colorless, not specifically artifacts.

If your going to turn everything into an artifact you might as well mess with the owner.

I'll try and make it more apparent in the future LordPrism67 but the flavor is definitely there, and Looting is one of primary engines in this deck. Kari has a plethora of looting options for stashing tasty loot for big bad Daretti, Scrap Savant, the hardworking Goblin Welder, the trusty Scrap Trawler, burying it deep below the Buried Ruin, having the big D man show off his Scrap Mastery, or simply having Ragavan visit the Trading Post itself, unless its also a creature which the Sword of Light and Shadow can also pull back from the shadows.
Half the reason Explorer's Scope is around is that it a genuine spyglass that looks for land! I like to imagine my pirate and her humble crew as having the guile to acquire such useful stealth tools as Rogue's Gloves, a Skeleton Key, an Infiltration Lens and use them on their quest of gathering the many exciting tools of the trade or the many orbs and stax effects as the ship's self various defense systems. Nearly every artifact can be justified no matter the implications as solid flavor. To me Kill Switch is the ship emitting an Electronic/Magic blast disabling all other artifacts (Including itself) as the sort of daredevil stunt expected of a swashbuckler. The enchantments and most of the landbase are where the flavor begins to fall short and I'd love to have some of them altered when I've settle on a final version of this.
I do appreciate the hype.
