Master Transmuter Discussion

This deck is among my best drafts for a reaper king deck. But I would like to open it up to suggestions now. Here are some of my thoughts for the deck right now.

My win condition is mostly, get Reaper King out and bounce a lot of scarecrows. Surprise.The mana ramp is awesome for colorless, and with Tinker, you can get Reaper King out turn 2. Once that out, the priority is Mirror Gallery. Then lots of bouncing with Scarecrone on Grim Poppet, Master Transmuter and other artifacts. If you get a chance, play test it until about turn 6 a few times then give me some advice. Thanks!

Master Transmuter is fine... No issues. Much more restrictive than the broken Tinker.

Just go to gatherer and read the comments on Tinker. The designers were out of their minds when they printed that card... Even though no artifacts existed at the power that they do today when Tinker was released, it was still way overpowered.

I will say though, that by adding Tolarian Academy, Master Transmuter and Darksteel Forge, and the plainswalker you've changed this from a $30 deck to well over a $100 deck

I didn't have any idea how expensive Time Walk was when I added it. I think I'll remove it. Unless I can get a GoFundMe going for it.

Bry, what does your soapbox say about Master Transmuter?

I like Biomass Mutation and Tezzeret the Seeker as secondary and/or tertiary win conditions. I think I might start with Biomass Mutation since it's cheaper and I can play the deck and get a feel for whether or not I need to shell out $20 for two Planeswalkers.

In the event that Mechanized Production needs to get out on the battlefield when I have more than 8 Clue Artifact Tokens, I do have Vedalken Orrery to Flash one out, and if I have enough Clues to spare, I can sacrifice three and grab any card with Tamiyo's Journal. I don't have any extra Leyline of Anticipations, so I might save a little and increase my Artifact count for when I buy Tolarian Academy

Would you like to work out a trade for things from my binder, for your Master Transmuter???

Cool build, +1 cause I love artifacts! Consider Quicksilver Amulet. It can get your big cost cards like Blightsteel Colossus out for 4 instead of 12. Master Transmuter would also be good here.

Grip of Phyresis is too situational.

Read the Runes is pretty awful too. Might help the Bonehoard but not worth it.

Fabricate and Master Transmuter would be all-stars in this deck. Chromatic Lantern definitely a priority though.

Found a Darksteel Ingot and Izzet Signet and Dimir Signet for you. Can replace the Grip of Phyresis Read the Runes.

Is Transguild Promenade still in the deck?

That Master Transmuter is definitely something I want and I couldn't help appreciate the out of the box way to do infect most decks use Green. I definitely see what you mean about the Blightsteel Colossus

Devon-ManaMaster I have a Blightsteel, but I run it in my Daretti deck haha. The reason I left is out is because of lack of ways to cheese him out without having to pay the 12 CMC such as Arcum Dagsson and Master Transmuter.

Thanks for the Upvote!
