Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient Discussion

I'm going to suggest you change this completely, here it goes! :)

Golems. Big golems. Go golem tribal like Altar Golem, Colossus of Sardia, Platinum Emperion, Phyrexian Colossus, Mage-Ring Responder, Colossus of Akros, etc.

But a weakness is many do not untap...but wait! Artifacts like Magewright's Stone, Voltaic Construct, Thousand-Year Elixir, Clock of Omens, Voltaic Key, etc. do just that. More fun though can be had with Threaten effects that you can use either on opponents' stuff or to untap your own. Interactive decks few!

A fun twist would be to have Bosh, Iron Golem out + Hijack, etc + Liquimetal Coating/Silverskin Armor to fling any of their creatures back into their faces.

And there's lots of fun utility golems to abuse. Ancestral Statue can bounce a big guy who attacked and just recast cheaply due to Rakdos' ability. Solemn Simulacrum is a staple. Beast of Burden takes advantage of token decks. Glass Golem's art looks wicked ;). Precursor Golem can add in some 1-shot draw spells like Crimson Wisps to draw a ton if lucky. Sundering Titan for fun control.

Feldon of the Third Path, Daretti, Scrap Servant, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Tuktuk the Explorer, and Urabrask the Hidden are all legendaries that play nicely with a theme like this I think.

So keep your burn/damage to activate Rakdos' ability, add some haste enabler like Fervor so your golems can attack upon entering, include fun enchantments like Blood Mist, Flameshadow Conjuring, and Mana Echoes.

I've decided I'm going with Metalworker instead of Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient just way stronger and synergistic, and he doesn't break the deck. lol

Hostility. Equip Bosh with shit, make use of the actual damage of his activated ability; consider Worldslayer, Basilisk Collar, Grafted Exoskeleton, Scythe of the Wretched, etc. Jalum Tome instead of your jay tome. Trash for Treasure just in case, maybe Scrap Mastery if you have a hard time ultimating Daretti or want more reanimation. Pariah's Shield equipped to stuffy doll is cool, but isn't worth it solely for the combo. Whispersilk Cloak instead of your prowlers helm. Braid of Fire. Deathrender, Skullclamp. Heartstone, Illusionist's Bracers, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient. Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle.

you should add in Goblin Kaboomist. he adds Land Mines which can be sac outlet and long as you can keep his toughness above 2 he wont blow himself up when he places it. plus the Land Mines can be used as a way to deal with early ground attackers. or for a safer, slower, way for easy and infinite artifact sacs just pop in a Serpent Generator. paying 4 and tapping it for an artifact snake. OR, OR, if you want to feel real ballsy and you have the lands for it put in a Hammer of Purphoros. giving you nice beefy artifact creatures that double as sac outlets. you should also add in Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient. with enough red mana you can copy the Key to the City's ability multiple times (since it is not a mana ability) and allow multiple creatures to become unblockable. Goblin Welder is also a good choice since it allows you to retrieve artifacts that you had used or were destroyed before your plan unfolded. another good card to put in is Tamiyo's Journal. I will tell you why. every turn it makes a Clue which can: 1. become a sac outlet. 2. become a draw outlet. 3. become a tutored card.

Did you ever flirt with having Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient in the deck?

MRDOOM3 First of all, thank you for your comment, I really appriciate your feedback :)

I was also thinking of adding Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast and Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas but for now they are too expensive for my pocket. If i happen to stumble upon any of them for a good price, I'll surely add them.Muzzio, Visionary Architect is on the maybeboard, as soon as I get it, I'll surely add it, it seems to fit really good in the deck.Haven't yet heard of the Feldon of the Third Path seems like a great addition.Yeah, im also not sure about Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient, seems a bit clunky..I took out Master of Etherium because it only functioned as a relatively large body and the anthem effect it has messes up my token sacing with skullclamp.

My main problem seems to be what to take out from the deck and replace with the upgrades and maybeboard. :/

There's always Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast and Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas if you are willing to spend the money.

Muzzio, Visionary Architect is also nice.

For more red, there's always Feldon of the Third Path. He also goes nice with ETB triggers.

I am not quite sure about this, but you can also try Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient. I say this because I still tend to get activated ability mixed up with passive abilities...

Where's the Master of Etherium?

For the moment, that's all I have to say. Good luck with the deck, and may topdeck be ever in your favor.
