Cards Missing From Initial Build

Goblin Welder Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain Thopter Engineer Thopter Squadron Blade of Selves Coldsteel Heart Commander's Sphere Retrofitter Foundry Vedalken Orrery Treasure Map  Flip Fire Diamond Sky Diamond Thirst for Knowledge Gamble

Ideas

More Removal/Wipes Blasphemous Act - Staple Release the Gremlins - Gives more tokens Rapid Hybridization, Pongify - Staples and can give yourself a 3/3 token Meteor Golem - High CMC, but can destroy Enchantments which is a huge weakness of the deck.

Master Transmuter - Cheats out your big artifacts, but kind expensive.

Curse of Opulence - A weird staple for this deck, but I think you can figure out why.

Pirate's Pillage/Pirate's Prize - Draw and tokens, maybe

Thoughts

Think about how fast you can make tokens. Does it make Purphoros, God of the Forge worth it?

Check through what effects require set up and make sure you don't have too many compared to stand alone cards. Even though Krark-Clan Ironworks does ramp, I wouldn't count it as ramp because it requires set up. Same goes for Storm the Vault  Flip (But you have 36 actual lands which is totally fine)

Your curving out around 4, so 2 drop ramp spells are much more important than the other higher ramp spells. Iron Myr, Fire Diamond, Sky Diamond, Silver Myr, Coldsteel Heart fit the best imo.

Gamble, Mystical Tutor, Fabricate, maybe Hoarding Dragon (?) - Combos in decks are strong and fun, but really hard to pull of without a descent amount of tutors and/or redundancy. Ignoring combos, each tutor can search out a key cards.

Final Fortune - Speaking of combos. Great combo with Isochron Scepter and Sundial of the Infinite, but you should either cut this or add more tutors to make getting it a bit more consistent.

Dramatic Reversal - I don't think you have enough mana rock/dorks to get to infinite mana, and without that it's kind of a waste of a card.

These combos in general don't really synergize with the goal of the deck (infinite mana more than infinite turns) like an infinite token combo would. I think there is a combo with Scrap Trawler and Hangarback Walker that I vaguely remember that you might want to try to find.

Darksteel Colossus/Blightsteel Colossus are super strong, but don't really fit. If you can find more targets for Mimic Vat and Prototype Portal then maybe, but those 4 cards stick out.

Cuts (IMO)

Everflowing Chalice - I always go colored mana over colorless if it costs the same, even if artifacts don't need it. It has potential to ramp you a bit more late game, but you usually don't need the ramp at that point.

Inspired Sphinx - 6 mana for a draw 3, maybe 4, and a hefty costed mana sink doesn't seem worth it to me.

Mycosynth Lattice - I might be missing something, but it seems a little narrow sited. It works a little with Darksteel Forge and Combos well with Hellkite Tyrant, but if the deck makes a bunch of tokens you don't need it to win with the Hellkite.

Panharmonicon - Same as Mycosynth Lattice. I might be missing something but there isn't a lot of ETBs to abuse this. I'm only counting 1 card that works: Thopter Spy Network

Lands

Cut Phyrexia's Core -Negligible effect unless you have a consistent way to abuse LTB triggers.

Caldera Lake - There are far better lands.

Swiftwater Cliffs - Its fine if you want to stay budget.

Reliquary Tower - I don't see a way for you to draw a bunch of cards and overflow your hand, so this isn't really needed.

Add City of Brass Reflecting Pool Mana Confluence - All staples in multicolored decks. Spire of Industry too for artifact decks, but is super cheap.

Izzet Guildgate and Highland Lake - Better, and cheaper, than Caldera Lake if you want to stay budget

Scalding Tarn - Obvious include if you want to spend the money.

Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse - Color fixing

Myriad Landscape is a 2 land fetch and taps for mana.

Overall, good base. It has potential to go from 0 - 100 and kill everyone out of nowhere.

Hissysnake8 on $25 Extreme Budget Zada EDH

3 months ago

Honestly, I thought that Crash Through said target, so my bad. I guess that explains why you run Boiling Blood The other points still stand,as well as Iron Myr. Not everyone can spend $25+ on a Chrome Mox or Firestorm, so many people look for budget versions of this deck and there isn't a lot out there. I for one would welcome a budget Zada deck, because I think she is under-represented and needs a larger pilot base.

TypicalTimmy on Land destruction: taboo or legit ...

5 months ago

The problem with LD (Land Destruction) decks is that a they are slow. painfully slow.

I run one in Modern. Rakdos () LD.

You limit yourself to , which is a powerful color combination, but the issue here is you can win so much faster using those colors.

The majority of LD spells in red cost 4. This means you aren't doing anything until T4.

Rakdos has a serious lack of ramp. Sure, there ARE cards that are "technically ramp", but traditionally you are wanting to increase your available mana consistently every turn, not bring out Rakdos Keyrune on T3 and have MAYBE 5 mana on T4, assuming you hit all land drops each turn.

Keep in mind that even if you ARE hitting lands 4 turns in a row, in Rakdos that's not optimal. You want swift, cheap spells. Lightning Bolt and Fatal Push and Terminate. Not land after land after land.

Bleh.

Having said that, there are great ramp cards available. Infernal Plunge, Generator Servant, Koth of the Hammer, Crypt Ghast, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Iron Myr, Leaden Myr, Plague Myr, Palladium Myr... But again, you detract from your LD spells. The further you push back your goal, the further ahead your opponent gets.

Uuuugh... On a phone. Fml

NOW we get to the problems. In Modern, games are fast. Really fast. Pushing out a game 5 - 7 turns is not ideal when you can design to win on T1. Casually you're golden. FNM is a toss up. Competitively? Good luck.

This is why Blood Moon, and in some decks Alpine Moon are so important. They CONTROL the lands, not remove them. If you want to optimize LD, look for cards that destroy lands as a secondary effect, such as Ghost Quarters, Field of Ruin, and Encroaching Wastes. -- The problem here now is you fill your deck with colorless lands, and you destroy your land base while giving your opponent basic lands of their choice (mostly).

Ugh, this was a poor decision to type it all out on my phone...

Okay. So let's ask a question: Why Rakdos?

There's a surprisingly good amount of land destruction spells in Modern and in Red (34 in Sorcery) and the cheapest are Cryoclasm, Molten Rain, Stone Rain, and Peak Eruption. Note that with Cryo and Peak, you don't need to target basics. You can target lands such as Hallowed Fountain and Irrigated Farmland, or combine Peak Eruption with Blood Moon.

In black, there's really just Rain of Tears, if you're trying to keep it all under CMC < 4.

You'll also want to recycle spells. Good way to do this is Charmbreaker Devils, but at 5 CMC there are better spells. I like to run him because he let's me get back LD spells every turn. If they don't have 1-Drop removals like Path to Exile, they are F-'ed. I run minimal removal and lots of LD, so even if I don't topdeck into one I can always get one back for free.

Now it is true that green has LD as well. Acidic Slime, Creeping Mold, Reap and Sow, Spreading Algae, but again they are either slow and require ramp or are very specific in nature.

The more colors you add, the more fixing you need, and the less specialized your deck is.

That's why we don't run green. Stick to res as your main color with black support.

I'd focus on red LD sorcerys, and black instant creature removal for cheap, such as Fatal Push and Terminate.

Overwhelm with cheap 1/1s like Goblins, and pick cards with huge bang for your buck. Kiln Fiend and Monastery Mentor are perfect. Goblin Guide hurts you here as he is doing what you don't want - Getting them more lands.

Goblin Offensive and Krenko's Command are good. Two 1/1s for 2 CMC? Decent.

Overwhelm and go wide. It's cheaper and saves you Mana for LD.

If you want and can work it in, Reverberate and Increasing Vengeance copy spells so you can hit twice in one turn.

I'm not going to build a deck for you, but I hope I helped a lot.

It's a legit strategy, but needs to be precisely honed and even than may be too slow.

Control / removal is better than LD, but LD does work. Modern prides itself on non-basic lands.

That's where you attack.

As for EDH? Against 3 other opponents, you'll be so vastly overwhelmed it's not even worth it.

MurrSheep on Card creation challenge

5 months ago

Holy crow, that is crazy!

Anyways, here goes nothing. It's a Myr card (try not to act so surprised.)

Shifting Myr

Artifact Creature - Myr

Kicker

Vanishing 5

When Shifting Myr enters the battlefield or leaves play, if you paid its kicker cost, search your deck for a copy of Gold Myr, Silver Myr, Leaden Myr, Iron Myr and Copper Myr.

2/2


For my challenge, let's visit our old pal Repentant Vampire. I love his threshold ability, but he can be better. Help him out and make him stronger while keeping a similar idea for his threshold ability.

Pal00ka on Hail the Eldrazi

6 months ago

-2 lands and more mana rocks that are Fellwar Stone, Darksteel Ingot, Izzet Cluestone, Izzet Keyrune, Wayfarer's Bauble, Iron Myr, Silver Myr, etc. The main reason is the more mana rocks you can play T1-3 the better Saheeli's 2nd +1 will be when she hits the board.

I think focusing on outlets that make artifact tokens would be fun and have synergy with Saheeli. Recent sets have given options for treasure (Brass's Bounty), clues (Tamiyo's Journal), servos (Servo Schematic), and thopters (Pia and Kiran Nalaar). Adding in bounce/blink effects would let you keep the army growing.

A fun alternative win-con to ramping into a scary Eldrazi is transforming your token army. Day of the Dragons, Descent of the Dragons, and Dragonshift + Surge of Zeal/Burst of Speed allow a lethal strike out of pretty much nowhere.

More card draw too; Mind's Eye, Staff of Nin, Slate of Ancestry, Ichor Wellspring, Howling Mine, Temple Bell, etc. all get the job done in their own ways. Spell-based draw is good too; Jace's Ingenuity, Ponder, Telling Time, Faithless Looting etc.

Some cards that should also be considered: Trading Post, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient, Goblin Welder, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Solemn Simulacrum, Nevinyrral's Disk, Shimmer Myr, Feldon of the Third Path, and Hellkite Tyrant.

Magus of the Moon... Blood Moon... Imperial Recruiter... Gamble...

My 4 color (no red) Hermit Druid litterally dies if any Blood Moon effect is dropped.

You make me sad.

Onto more pressing matters, Ruination? ugh... I am glad I don't know you IRL, this deck would be brutal to go against.


Some suggestions would be Possibility Storm, Stolen Identity, Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip, and Outpost Siege. The first one is just good fun and chaos and OMYGOD Magus of the Moon got out from an Iron Myr... The other three are card advantage, with the first of them being chaos and card advantage.

Up to you on all of this, but I'll toss you a +1 for the deck and I certainly hope we never play together for my sake!
