Lodestone Golem Discussion
1 week ago
I can't find the best copy effect here: Copy Artifact
Sculpting Steel might also be worth including. I would make some hard cuts among the top cmc cards and add at least signets and Talisman for ramp, better would be 0 drop rocks as well obviously. I could see Phyrexian Revoker work well here, maybe Lodestone Golem too. Tezzeret the Seeker and Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas would do more work in the deck than Karn imo. You might also want to look at Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast instead of some ridiculously expensive removal engines like ethersworn adjudicator...

toffmcsoft I'm comparing the lists with the function on the left - there's 8 cards difference which doesn't seem to be much but I wonder why you removed exactly these cards.
What you did was essentially removing half the stax of the deck: Trinisphere (wtf), Tangle Wire, Lodestone Golem, Chalice of the Void. Also Spell Pierce out and lusterstorm/pact in doesn't make that much sense imo (as discussed above) because pact is a really bad defensive counter and flusterstorm won't hit the early game rocks, which is part of the stax plan.
I can see the future sight/narset swap because that was what I had too before, just removed narset eventually because I didn't have enough payoff for her rebound ability...the UUU in future sight can be a problem.
What I don't understand is the addition of even more combo pieces, especially dramatic scepter. Scepter is only really good when the commander is an outlet for it because otherwise it's not a two card combo but yet another 3 card combo and it doesn't overlap with others (unlike the whole stuff with monolith rings and engine). imprinting another instant together with engine isn't that realistic when there's a relatively low amount of instants availabe, of which a good part is counterspells. ballista as an outlet gets shut down by cursed totem (metalworker is just cool because it's ramp and combo piece in one card and it's a 2 card combo) but it might be useful on ist own. The problem here is just that you do all this at the cost of essential stax pieces such as Trinisphere/Tangle Wire and also ramp (cutting fellwar stone and statuary while keeping the weaker chromatic lantern).

As a Transmuter lover, i feel i need to help hahah
- You have many copys of Duplicant, they dont help to get pressure
- Ensoul Artifact is totally slot loss here
- Prototype Portal is too slow and too risky, artifact get hate so easy
- 3 Spine of Ish Sah is a high number, use 1 and add Trading Post
- Trinket Mage not help too much. We have best options like: Talisman, Mind Stone and Everflowing Chalice -which is too good if transmuter cause is 0 CMC- to ramp, in this kind of build, you dont need to get tron online cause want to Transmuter tricks.
Lodestone Golem in a build of artifact rules. Help you to get pressure and slow the enemy. Kuldotha Forgemaster can help you to get the bigboss fast. If you want draw use Thirst for Knowledge over Blue sun's.

General Recommendations: Lodestone Golem, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Vedalken Archmage, Retract, Hurkyl's Recall, Sculpting Steel, Thran Dynamo, Arcbound Reclaimer, Karn, Scion of Urza, Academy Ruins, Expedition Map
Seal of Removal (or just any bounce target, just so they have to pay the ridiculous tax again)

I'll keep my suggestions under $5 since I see budget:
Unblockable/Protection: Nim Deathmantle
Stax: Lodestone Golem

You have Glissa as your commander and no Executioner's Capsule. Is your meta just strait black? Because then I don't see the point of Contamination. You also have Reanimate, but with maybe one good target for it in The Gitrog Monster. Sheoldred, Whispering One? Herald of Anguish? Even Marionette Master would be Ok. You also run a few tutors for your combos, and that makes sense. But the draw you have around that is Bob, Gitrog, Ad Nauseam, Necropotence, Sylvan Library, Top, Scroll Rack, and Skullclamp. None of this is bad. In fact, most of it fantastic. But I want you to read Glissa, and tell why you don't also have recursion based draw. Solemn Simulacrum, Filigree Familiar, Moriok Replica, Ichor Wellspring, and to a lesser extent, cards like Treasure Keeper or Junk Diver. While we are on the topic of card draw, lets talk about Skullclamp. You have 12 creatures. 7 of them have 1 health, but if you ever put a Skullclamp on Bob and you aren't at 5 or less health, you should never play EDH again. The Lodestone Golem, Metalworker, and Scrap Trawler have the upside of being artifacts, which you have sacrifice outlets to. But only one. Ashnod's Altar? This one is also good with the creatures above with Glissa's recursion. You have only have 2 good targets for Skullclamp that are also artifacts. Why are you even running it?
The amount of artifact sacrificing, or even just artifacts dying, that this deck has is atrociously low. It looks like you took a couple of combos, shoved them in a stax deck, ditching all of the things that make Glissa Stax good (Glissa Stax isn't very good tho). Things like playing Winter Orb, sacrificing on the end step before your turn, tapping a Forbidden Orchard, killing the spirit, bringing back the orb, and doing it all again. This is a poorly constructed deck, with counter synergies, like the fact that 47 of your cards are 2 CMC or less and you run Trinisphere (which can be ok sometimes, but not in a deck that wants to play a KCI combo, because of Myr Retriever), lack of synergies, like the presence of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and the lack of Cabal Coffers, and just poor card choices, like Entomb + Reanimate with no game winning targets.
This deck VERY far from polished.
PS - I know that if you have the whole KCI combo, you could sac trinsphere, but this immediately turns on Ceremonious Rejection, Mindbreak Trap, Swan Song, etc. I would honestly just ditch the whole KCI combo idea, but keep all of the cards in, because they are still really good with Glissa, because you are right about Trinisphere being a deck breaking card.

Hi marcosaletti! I like the deck list you have here. I think you should embrace stealing your opponent's permanents more than winning with pure damage with Blightsteel Colossus. Don't get me wrong, Blightsteel Colossus is great, but having all of your opponents concede as soon as you take full control of the game can be just as satisfying. I like the Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal combo that can potentially give you infinite mana, but I think you could improve this deck by taking out some underperforming cards like Lodestone Golem, Elixir of Immortality, and In Bolas's Clutches for cards like Mycosynth Lattice, Unwinding Clock, and Sculpting Steel. I also have a Memnarch deck that runs the same type of strategy. If you'd ever want to take a look at my list for some card examples, you're more than welcome to do so any time!

enpc: Yeah... wow I didn't think of that.
n0bunga: I was just saying they were hermit druid lists, I apologize that I gave the wrong impression. I know aggro exists, but then we should talk about midrange, as that is another normal archetype in MTG.
Oh yeah, also vintage? How many aggro decks are in vintage? I guess you could claim dredge is, but come on, like really? that is a combo deck. Ravager shops is more midrangy, Lodestone Golem isn't the epitome of aggro, and Wurmcoil Engine definently isn't.
Really, every format is different, and archetypes change for them.
Oh yeah, and I really like Yuriko! Decent card advantage for 2 mana, it is like a bad Dark Confidant, though confidant is so good it doesn't matter!
