Grafted Exoskeleton Discussion

mtgApprentice21 on Atraxa, Voice of Infect

You've already got Grafted Exoskeleton, so why not throw in Mycosynth Lattice and Bosh, Iron Golem. All permanents become artifacts once the lattice is dropped, so equip the exoskeleton to Bosh and you can just start throwing things at people for 8 infect damage. He's a nice "beatstick" with trample too, but the lattice will enable you to use his activated ability. Funny, stupid, AND degenerate. What do you think?

Also, Phyrexian Crusader is pro white/red, not pro white/green, but it's still funny.

However, why have Odric, Lunarch Marshal, when you could run Akroma's Memorial, which is way more fun!

Finally, you could run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Liliana of the Dark Realms. Lili can solve color problems, and, if her ultimate goes off, Urborg makes each of your lands able to produce . Urborg also makes Sheoldred, Whispering One engage her swampwalk against everyone, which can also be really funny.

I assume you're already aware that Sheoldred and Sidisi, Undead Vizier means having a reusable tutor. It's a pretty neat combo that I've actually seen before.

Phyresis and Grafted Exoskeleton end games quickly. Mycosynth Lattice help you get the most of the mana you're getting from Waste Not. Copy effects, specifically ones with flashback are great like Geistblast.

The Mad King of Tristram for reference.

Triton: Thanks for the comment (and the +1)! :)

In answer to your suggestions...

I'm actually involved in a trade to acquire a Masterpiece Mox Opal at the moment. Do you think it would fit in here? I'm not sure if my artifact count is high enough. Thoughts? :)

I do need to get a Plateau. But it's such bad art, and so expensive...

I've never been a fan of Chrome Mox outside of really dedicated combo decks, to be honest. Card advantage is so difficult in Boros colors already, and I'd have to exile a colored card to actually get any benefit...

I've run Grafted Exoskeleton before and had mixed experiences. On the positive side, if it's equipped to my commander, I can straight-up 1-shot people by flipping her then swinging for lethal infect. But the risk is too high: if someone removes the Exoskeleton I have to immediately sacrifice Avacyn :( Same reason I'm not running Grafted Wargear anymore - just makes it too easy for my opponents to blow me out.

Not many ideas for suggestions (I can only think of Chrome Mox, Mox Opal and Plateau haha), but have you ever considered being r00d and using Grafted Exoskeleton? It's definitely a mean card and paints a target, but just a thought.

Otherwise this list looks really solid and earns a +1 from me!

Infect. Glistening Oil, Phyresis, Tainted Strike, maybe even Grafted Exoskeleton. Because Nekusar's ability states that he does the damage, all you need to do is have your opponents draw 10 cards to win. That's a turn plus a good wheel.

Glistening Oil is probably the best, as its -1/-1 won't kill him before he's killed everybody else, and if someone else kills him, Glistening Oil returns to your hand, ready for reuse.

I just need to check something:

I put a Grafted Exoskeleton onto Stuffy Doll. An opponent attacks with a vanilla 3/3. I defend with Stuffy Doll so the opponent then takes 3 damage...which means that, instead of losing 3 life, he get 3 poison counters, right? It's my understanding that if a card refers to simply "damage', then that means any form of damage (as opposed to a specific form of damage such as combat. e.g. you can't use Prey Upon with Permeating Mass to create a copy of Permeating Mass)

Haha! First time I've seen a Commander like this. Awesome! Anyways, i was just going to recommend a few cards and take my leave. Grafted Exoskeleton, to put on your commander for an extremely quick game. Insurrection, a bit pricey of a card, but you get to take everyone's guys. Great wincon. And maybe Dragonmaster Outcast to give you a sac-able guy in every turn by the time your commander comes out. Just random thoughts to mull over.

you should try Grafted Exoskeleton, it's a low-key sac outlet that combos with Gift of Immortality
