Aetherblade on The deck challenge

@APPLE01DOJ: I'm still not 100% sold on your deck. Don't get me wrong, it looks like a really powerful deck given my low budget, however there isn't that certain feeling which makes me think "I want to build that deck and try it out". I don't know, but I'm not the guy for goodstuff, there has to be something that draws me to the deck. For example, the idea of this deck is something that intrigues me.

It seems really unique. I probably won't build it because there is so much artifact hate in sideboards and the deck is really reliant on Liquimetal Coating, but that deck gives me more of that feeling. Could you recommend a way for me to find the ideal deck? I've already searched quite a bit, but I haven't found the one deck yet.

Mycosynth Lattice if you have some extra spending money. Also, Splinter is brutal with Liquimetal Coating.

Note the wording: Exile target artifact. Search its controller's graveyard, hand, and library for all cards with the SAME NAME as that artifact and exile them. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

Turn a land into an artifact, and rip every single copy out of their deck. If they're playing a lot of basics or mono color, they'll probably scoop. Or just target combo pieces that you know will monkey wrench their whole deck.

P.S. Same trick works with Eradicate and anything that changes a land into a creature like Wind Zendikon.

I would pull Open the Vaults in place of Liquimetal Coating as it combos off with Saheeli Rai, whereas the former is very risky retrieval.

Saheeli Rai + Liquimetal Coating + any one of Altar of the Brood, Reckless Fireweaver or Disciple of the Vault.

With Saheeli Rai on board without an activation, activate Liquimetal Coating targeting her, then do her -2 ability targeting herself (she is now an artifact from the coating). Copy hits the board, Legend rule, choose the token to keep (and since she's an artifact herself again due to her ability), and -2 again. Rinse and repeat.

I also run Myr Retriever and Junk Diver for artifact retrieval, which coupled with Scrap Trawler can lead to some wicked interaction with Time Sieve.

Time Sieve activation, sacrifice in a descending CMC order, including Junk Diver and Myr Retriever will pull all 5 back to hand that you sacrificed, plus an additional artifact in your graveyard, stocking up to 6 if ever in a bad situation of no hand.

Thopter Assembly + Time Sieve for an easy victory.

If you want to abuse acticated abilities Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient is hella dope. Its a rings of brighthesrth for one red mana that you can use only for artifacts. It works with Breya, Etherium Shaper, Aetherflux Reservoir, all your mana rocks, and filters with commanders sphere. And the best part is, because planeswalker abilities are activated, if you can cheeze them to be artifacts like with Liquimetal Coating you can pay one red to ult twice :)

Hey guys,

my following Beeble-Tribal deck existing for a while now:

I playtested this deck and it really surprised me. Especially Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic, are the necessary key-cards behind this deck. B-U-T, I think something is missing in this deck and I dont know what.

The last time, I build a Beeble deck I tried it with Enchantment and Artifact spells to donate. I also used Liquimetal Coating. But since most of the players use artifact and enchantment spells, I think it is not necessary to fill the slots with permanents to donate.

In short, I would like to know if: a.) the Bubble Matrix can be used in this deck with Pariah. Idk if this combo fits into this deck but I really want to keep them because of the perfect goofy artwork of Bubble Matrix.b.) there are any other spells which you would suggest? And c.) I can use Oblivion Ring and Journey to Nowhere to make the Bubbling Beebles unblockable?

I try to make the best use out of those Beebles. At the end I want to win just with Justin Bieber uhm Beebles. :)

I hope you can help me cuz I want to buy this deck asap. Thank you dudes!

Thanks for the suggestions, Pownu! I've never been a fan of Liquimetal Coating because it does nothing on its own. I think the Scepter + Engine combo is a good one but then again, those are cards that accomplish very little on their own. Without access to reliable filter/draw cards, I don't think a competitive RW list could get away with any of those three cards. Also, RW would have a hard time tutoring for non-enchantment combo pieces, which makes the likelihood of assembling such a combo even lower. I've thought about adding a kiki-jiki combo but the lack of reliable tutors is a problem here as well. Thanks for bringing those cards to my attention anyway! I had forgotten about scepter and liquimetal.

this is a very interesting build. I like it! You might consider some cards that make opponents permanents artifacts, like Liquimetal Coating. You could run it with Paradox Engine and Isochron Scepter with isochron attached to one of your artifact destruction spells. If you have sol ring out, you can destroy every single one of their permanents with that combo. it is pretty finicky to get out and sustain, but it would be interesting to test.

Otherwise, +1 from me!
