Master of Etherium Discussion

LeaPlath on I'm a rocket man....

So Affinity isn't a good deck in Legacy and it hasn't been a good deck in a long time. But there are some cool ways to build it which would improve this list.

First up, in Legacy it is less a go wide frogmite build a more a go high Master of Etherium build, with Arcbound Ravager being played in all the lists. It plays more midrangey, as a result.

The core you must have is basically 12x artifact lands. 4x Ornithopter. 4x Arcbound Ravager. 2-4 Springleaf Drum. 4x Mox Opal. 2-4x Cranial Plating. 3-4 Vault Skirge. 3-4 Master of Etherium. 3-4 Ancient Tomb. 3-4 Glimmer Void. Then you want 2-4 Galvanic Blast and 2-4 Thoughtcast.

From there, there are a few ways you can go. Some lists want Stoneforge Mystic/Batterskull as extra mystics fetch up Cranial Plating. Some lists want Chalice of the Void, because you can play it on 1 and just auto win games. Some lists play Blood Moon for an auto win. Akiri, Line-Slinger is a fun way to go high especially if you go for Smuggler's Copter or some utility artifacts like Welding Jar. Dark Confidant is pretty popular, especially if you run stuff like Hangarback Walker/Walking Ballista. Some lists are also a little slower with cards like Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, or Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast as ways to get value or create hard to beat board states.

Personally I'm a fan of this list coming out of Japan. It lacks the punch I think other lists have, but I love the engine and its ability to threaten in combat a lot of the stuff like Batterskull.

I'v played with kinda similar deck for a while now with great results and have toned it into looking something like this.

IMO mono works best for this kind of deck, I first had / and then / in my deck but just felt that just worked best for me. I'v tried to make the deck work so that it's a chain reaction, when you play your first Colossus you at least tutor the next one at the same turn or have something to fetch it/them next turn. Main things I think are needed are card draw, tutors and ramp, this is why blue works the best (again, IMO :) ). Mana really is not an issue with colossi as after turn 4 you should not be using any on casting them.

Control decks tend to screw this kind of a deck hard so I'd add counter and shroud to side against exile effects etc, I basically play zero counter on main and side some in depending on how much control (or something else nasty) opponent has.

Also secondary win conditions are pretty much must, if for some reason you cant play your colossi you are done. I like Master of Etherium and Tezzeret the Seeker , both can put out huge amounts of damage with little effort.

I also played Cranial Plating for a while, but it felt kinda unnecessary as colossi already hit really hard and usually take 2 attacks anyway to get things done.

It's a fun deck to play and against most decks it fares very well, hope you'll enjoy your Metalwork Colossi as much as I have done :)!

Looks pretty solid.

As far as sideboard, the meta is very graveyard heavy right now so with that in mind

Ground Seal

Relic of Progenitus

Grafdigger's Cage

Tormod's Crypt

Sometimes Bow of Nylea can be useful game 2 also

Feed the Clan is another great way to keep your life total high, and if you are splashing white Path to Exile is a great sideboard answer to most modern threats such as Death's Shadow, Tarmogoyf or Master of Etherium

Lastly, Beast Within is one of the best mono green removal spells in modern, it answers a surprising amount of cards id recommend 2 in the side

Hope that helps!

Although not relevant to this case, Master of Etherium's P/T setting ability is a characteristic-defining ability (CDA) and CDAs are always applied first regardless of timestamp. So for example a Master of Etherium played after a Humility is already on the field will have a newer timestamp, but will still be a 1/1 since CDAs are applied first.

Master of Etherium out with a Mirror Entity under my control.

I activate Mirror Entity's ability for 0.

What is Master of Etherium's P/T if it is the only artifact I control?

First things first, you should change the format of the deck to casual since Counterspell is not legal in Modern.

With that being said I think the idea is neat but you need to streamline your deck. the more 3's and 4's you have the better consistency your deck is going to have. Drop a lot of the mediocre 2's like

Aeronaut Tinkerer

Aether Swooper

Aether Theorist

Aspiring Aeronaut

Eager Construct

Scrapper Champion

and go up to 3's and 4's of the better cards like

Thopter Engineer

Whirler Rogue

Chief of the Foundry

Lightning Bolt

Some other good Artifact stuff you may have overlooked

Hangarback Walker

Pia and Kiran Nalaar

Bomat Courier

Spire of Industry

Ensoul Artifact + Ornithopter 5/5 flyer on turn 2

Darksteel Citadel+Ensoul Artifact 5/5 indestructible on turn 2

Cranial Plating

Etched Champion

Galvanic Blast
