Guerte on [[Primer]] - Daretti - Degenerate Artifacts

2 weeks ago

Dredge4life: I’ve ran Mind's Eye in my deck before, but I felt it didn’t do enough, and at times I didn’t have mana available to draw off of it. As far as Tangle Wire goes, yes it is a viable option to run, but I feel it’s better suited for a Stax build.

WizardGarm: I haven’t really kept up with the exclusions list, as there are way too many to be listed, so I’ve only picked a couple thus far. Scroll Rack and Hellkite Igniter are fine additions, and I even ran Igniter at one point. Phyrexia's Core and Trading Post are good options for a sac outlet. However, they are a one-time use until you can untap. I’d go with a free sac outlet such as Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, that way you can use it whenever.

Hi Guerte, few years ago I bought this deck as a precon when starting to play magic, and been following your list around for a while now for inspiration. Amazing deck, and fun to play.

I looked on notable exclusions though and thought there'd be more there, because I'm not sure wether or not to run the following cards:

Scroll Rackto be able to fill more artifacts in hand for Metalworker and in case you want to use Daretti's ability but not on your cards in hand Hellkite Igniter as a finisher

I would like to know your opinion on these cards.

Another problem I encounter is people using targeted or non targeted exile spells on my artifacts, how do you deal with that better?

I thought of including stuff like Phyrexia's Core or Trading Post to dodge the exile effect on important artifacts.

Thank you

The new blue red commander deck seems like it has some good resources for the deck. That or you could use Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain as your actual commander to help you dig for Hellkite Igniter and dump lots of low cost artifact onto the battlefield.

Edit- just saw your comment saying the same thing. If so, I second that.

I appreciate the suggestion for Scion of the Ur-Dragon, but I don't think I have the budget for a proper Mana base. Out of the artifact commanders I saw, I like Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain the best as it allows us to look for Hellkite Igniter while building up our board with artifacts. I also feel there needs to be more exciting Jhoira decks that aren't Mox Tribal.

I would take a look through artifact commanders here:


Choose one of those and slide this dragon into the deck and you will be able to smash face with him no problem. You might look specifically at mono-red like Daretti, Scrap Savant, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient, or Bosh, Iron Golem.

Daretti is generally the strongest among those 3 but I find if you see one of those as the commander the others are usually in the deck and their decks are usually somewhat similar +/- a few specific abuse-able pieces.

Fun thing though if you use Kurkesh for the commander and include a way to turn Hellkite Igniter into an artifact then you can copy his ability. Mycosynth Lattice jumps to mind but their are quite a few things that turn stuff into artifacts.

Maybe have Scion of the Ur-Dragon as your commander and put Teneb, the Harvester and/or Bladewing the Risen in your deck. Therefore you can copy Hellkite Igniter, put it into the graveyard, then copy, say Teneb, the Harvester to put Hellkite Igniter onto the battlefield. Yes, it is expensive (mana-wise), but it lets you run tribal dragons.

I was going through my old cards recently, and found one near and dear to my heart, Hellkite Igniter. A possibly overcoated, difficult to use beater, but for me, this card colored my play style and holds special meaning to me. Hellkite Igniter is the first rare I ever owned when I started playing Magic, coming from the first of five package out of a deckbuilder's toolbox I bought from Walmart. If I had opened those original packs differently, and gotten that Baneslayer Angel first, maybe I would play control or white deck, and maybe I would still own that Baneslayer and not the Rocket Dragon. But because of this, dragon tribal was the first commander deck I ever built. Commander is my preferred formatt, and I've always wanted to find a home for that old, beat up Igniter. I want to build a commander deck that utilizes Hellkite Igniter as the secret Commander and win-con, but I have no idea where to start. Naturally, this deck will require being red or partly red, focus on making tons of small artifacts somehow, and have a way to tutor the dragon. I would prefer the deck not cost more that $100, so the most expensive tutors are probably out. Feel free to send me any suggestions or point me to a good starting place. Thank you to anyone for reading this post and anyone willing to help me with this sentimental pet project.
