Karn, Scion of Urza Discussion

musicman3310 thanks for the suggestions. The more I think about it, I think I want to replace Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord with Karn, Scion of Urza . Karn draws you cards and the Constructs he makes pair well with the Servos from Saheeli, Sublime Artificer . With Karn you also don't have to worry about having double red. Do you have any thoughts on this?

I agree that Duress should be somewhere in the 75. I'll work on what to cut for it. I also think having my own two copies of The Elderspell in the sideboard would be a good idea.

I swapped out Green, for Black. As Struyk said. The deck had issues keeping creatures and walkers out.

Evolution Sage was too combo based and it was either go all out on the combo, or try and save your creatures. Now it's Esper Control to help Karn, Scion of Urza be more supported

Almost the same as my deck but I use:

Karn's Bastion -> Evolving Wilds
Evolving mills your deck and helps cast the enchantments

Ugin, the Ineffable -> Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge
Tezzeret is just way better

Meteor Golem -> Karn, Scion of Urza
Meteor Golem is too expensive mana wise

Iron Bully -> Silent Submersible
Don't know why you would use Iron Bully, he's so useless

Added a 2nd Traxos, Scourge of Kroog
I use Karn as well so more hystorics, he's just op

Added 3x Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp
5/6 flying for 4 cost, what's not to like?

Dropped Kaya's Ghostform
In my experience each time I try to cast this my creature / planeswalker dies before it applies or it just never dies...

Experimenting with Spark Double and Yawgmoth's Vile Offering and trying to main deck 4x Thought Erasure


Ugin, the Ineffable -> Phyrexian Scriptures
Helps a lot vs rush decks and creature spam decks

Experimenting with Chaos Wand
Extreme card advantage vs slow decks / control decks

If you're making a Standard deck, you've got the wrong Karn. When WAR comes out, these two will be the only Standard legal Karns - Karn, Scion of Urza and Karn, the Great Creator .

If you're making a Modern deck, there are plenty of strong options to compliment your walkers :)

Thanks Hawk_of_Battle, I do have Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn, Scion of Urza in my paper Traxos deck, Traxos, Scourge of the Casual Playgroup, but they should also be in this deck.

I probably should add in more board wipes as well, Perilous Vault is worth looking into. Thanks for the suggestions!

And thank you SufferFromEDHD for the suggestions. Scorched Ruins seems greedy but this deck needs all the ramp it can get.

Oh yeah, and a couple of Find / Finality , which are great both against aggro and control. Made my list slightly more midrange-y with a single Karn, Scion of Urza too. It adds a better mid to late, but again, I don't know if it'll make for more wins.

Karn, Scion of Urza could give you card draw. Vivien Reid could help you search for lands. Dovin, Hand of Control would give your Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor redundancy somewhat. Saheeli, Sublime Artificer would allow all of your planeswalkers to come in with a token to protect them a little. I know these suggestions are everywhere but that's everything I could think of.
