DrukenReaps on Missing a Combo Deck!

Continuing with the artifact theme you might look at Breya, Etherium Shaper. There are dozens of ways for the deck to go off with and without her. Some of the better combos are done with Nim Deathmantle and Ashnod's Altar. Although any free sac outlet with something like Myr Retriever and Disciple of the Vault, Reckless Fireweaver, or Marionette Master will kill the table.

Another to think about is Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. I retired my own version, Mistress of Poisons, because it was able to win much too early for it to feel "fair" at my table. Comboing turn 3 is difficult but not impossible and I wasn't even close to optimal on tutors...

No. A wincon should not be your entire deck. With treasures, as with many things- to many heavy cards will slow it down to the point of non-competitive. This is especially true right now- the meta is low and fast with some huge finishers by turn 4-5.

Currently, your only creature can’t be played till turn 5, unless you spend treasures. Then perhaps turn 4. But you cast him turn 4, then your opponent is free to cast his turn 4 or 5 card. Which will be ghalta, Hazoret, Lyra, Scarab God etc. when comparing slots, your jamb should be turn 3 treasure map, turn 4 counter or Draw, turn 5 Spell Swindle turn 6 Revel in Riches. Though I must admit, I would find a sideboard or Mainboard slot for either Marionette Master or Mechanized Production against control decks & post sideboard on a lot of competitive decks, revel is just bad as they aren’t creature heavy.

Well, my latest iteration didn't do as well as I had hoped in a friendly competitive league, although all of the losses seemed winnable. I did a warm up league queue against BW superfriends and stomped the opponent, with a Marionette Master win in game one.


1 Bristling hydra/pummeler/hadana climb: 1-2. game 2 bristles with energy and Hadana on turn 3, ouch. Last game opponent top decked into every counter to hold me off :( (know from Lost Legacy)

2 RB artifact: 2-0. Stomp.

3 BG constrictor. 1-2. Close game 3. Made errors because I was short on time. :/

4 WBR something. 1-0 Quit after game one domination.

5 BW weeines. 0-2. Bad flood game 1. Drought game 2, and opponent hit all sideboard. Rough

Hey, I suggest more Demon flavor with reanimation less artifacts, less Marionette Master. This is a great deck name, but needs more Demons and more Demon strategy :)

Consider Rite of Belzenlok, Liliana, Death's Majesty, Dark Bargain and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip?

as an update, I played this deck at my local fnm last week, and went 3-0-1. the draw was to a super grindy journey to eternity deck, but I did go 2-0 against a subpar red agro deck, 2-0 against a ghalta dino ramp deck, and 2-1 against a terrifying bu tezeret combo-control deck playing Marionette Master and Spell Swindle .

I had hoped to play decks that might be more reflective of the meta, and heck maybe these are, so I'll keep doing testing.

Revel in Riches would definitely fit. Even though this deck works off accumulating as many treasures as you can, if you want another wincon, Treasure Map  Flip and Marionette Master might work.
