Flagellum on Trying to decide on next ...

3 days ago

Hi y'all! So I've decided to retire/melt my Breya deck which is chuck full of infinite combos and most artifact goodstuff like Arcum Dagsson , Master Transmuter , Ethersworn Canonist ECT. Despite the land base being fine (few basics, only shard etb tapped lands) color fixing can still be an issue in a 4 color deck. I run exclusively combo decks for the most part so a slight change from that would be nice but not required. I also wouldn't mind sticking with an artifact theme as I already likely own the main pieces. Still like to keep it on the more budget friendlier side.

The ideas I had:

Artifact Themed

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain : still on theme, still combo. But only dual colored instead of 4. There's the cheeri0s glass cannon version but I havent found a more value centric deck that works better.

Sydri, Galvanic Genius : drops a color and still on theme. This one is more mana intensive than Breya was most likely but the neat little interactions seem amusing like with Caltrops or turning a mana rock into a deathtrap.

Arcum Dagsson : mono colored but way too much hate will be drawn. Missing some non budget pieces that would make him shine (and less of a budget is available as not much would be melted). Same applies to Urza.

Spellslinger Themed

Feather, the Redeemed : seems amusing but wouldnt be geared towards voltron as much due in part of my previous experience with Karlov and Rafiq. But I do miss my Zada deck which this is reminiscent of that I dismantled for Purphoros. It would also be my only spellslinger oriented deck. Own most the cards too as a plus.

Aggro/Combo

Varina, Lich Queen : esper zombies. Seems amusing and is a bit different. I do like all the Vengeful Dead type effects recently added that punish those who would wipe out the horde.

Given that Master Transmuter costs 4 to cast, and there are lots of other spells even higher, I suggest you run 24 lands or include more ramp via Paradise Mantle / Springleaf Drum .

I also suggest you include 1x Buried Ruin . Darksteel Citadel might be worth including, too.

Thoughtcast instead of Temple Bell .

Cranial Plating is usually pretty good.

Davinoth on Urza's Gamble

Thanks for the suggestions KongMing! Most of the Untap-effect artifacts I'll be avoiding in the interest of keeping the deck a bit more casual. I run a Winter Orb strategy in my Kaalia's Calamity deck and I think my playgroup would have a collective aneurysm if I introduced another haha.

Originally this was a Memnarch deck that used Freed from the Real with Aphetto Alchemist & Fatespinner as well as Gilded Lotus or Astral Cornucopia , but so far the amount of mana Urza produces is really gratuitous, so even multiple untaps on something like Master Transmuter just seems unnecessary.

Naban, Dean of Iteration is another card I looked at as well, but came to the same conclusion. In a future with more Wizards, perhaps it might merit an include.

Some good cards for Monoblue Artifacts are Whir of Invention , and Mechanized Production .

You can take advantage of Urza's artifact tap ability with stuff like Static Orb , Storage Matrix , and Winter Orb . I cannot stress how good these are, just use Urza to tap them down on your last opponent's end step, and you don't suffer from their penalties during your untap step. It can totally lock opponents out of the game, while you actually produce mana for other activated abilities at end step by tapping these!!!

Might consider Freed from the Real in order to get some more untaps in. It combos with Master Transmuter (which you have) and Myr Battlesphere while Urza is on the field to give you infinite mana and Myrs. In fact, any artifact that brings in an additional artifact on ETB will allow this to go infinite.

I just made a Naban, Dean of Iteration deck, so I'm tempted to recommend him since he doubles Urza and your Trophy Mage et al triggers, but I don't think you have enough Wizards to really pull it off.

In order of importance

  1. Set up the custom categories - It makes improving the deck a ton more efficient

  2. If you are going shenanigans then there's a few good options that youre missing

  3. You have Counterspell but not Mana Drain ? you need more protection, Sen brings heat..even if itsnot deserved...although youre also bringing stax so you'll sorta deserve it :p

  4. why is Quasiduplicate in?

Ancient Den + Seat of the Synod + Vault of Whispers + Spire of Industry ($5) + Chromatic Lantern ($7) + Baleful Strix ($8) = $20

-OR-

Panharmonicon ($5) + Master Transmuter ($15) = $20

-OR-

Darksteel Forge = $20

Just some thoughts. My rec would be the first one, especially the mana base. Chromatic Lantern is a must for the Trips. (Prices per tcgplayer)

Hi, long post. I'm looking to get a lot of trading done hopefully.


I'm putting together a Estrid, the Masked Oathbreaker deck. I need to trade for Estrid obviously, and I also need some specific cards to to complete the deck. Here's a list:

I also have some specific wants from recent sets that I would be interested in trading for:

1x Phyrexian Altar (EMA) 2x Generous Gift 1x Gamble 1x Sulfur Falls 1x Finale of Revelation 1x Evolution Sage 1x Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin 1x Karn's Bastion 1x Flux Channeler 1x Bolas's Citadel 1x Karn, the Great Creator 2x Runic Armasaur 1x Biomancer's Familiar 1x Dark-Dweller Oracle 1x Immolation Shaman 1x Rhythm of the Wild 1x Emmara, Soul of the Accord 1x Teysa Karlov 1x Ugin, the Ineffable 1x God-Eternal Oketra 1x Teferi, Time Raveler 1x Saheeli, Sublime Artificer 1x Tithe Taker 1x Light Up the Stage 1x Priest of Forgotten Gods 1x Beast Whisperer 1x Cruel Celebrant 2x Dovin's Veto 1x Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion 1x Primal Amulet  Flip 1x Neheb, the Eternal 1x Deep Forest Hermit 17x Snow-Covered Mountain 1x Goblin Engineer 1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician 1x Cabal Therapist 1x Mirrodin Besieged 1x Hall of Heliod's Generosity 1x Talisman of Hierarchy 1x Talisman of Creativity

1x Feather, the Redeemed 1x Seize the Day 1x Impact Resonance 1x Defiant Strike 1x Inspiring Vantage 1x Aurelia's Fury 1x Rugged Prairie 1x Sunforger

I also have a bunch of commander staples in my binder wants. I'll obviously trade for them for the right offer, but if I haven't listed them here then they're not a priority for me right now.


You can find my Binder here: Link. It should be about 95% up to date. I recommend sorting by price, since there's a lot on there.

Here's a list of some of my notable haves that I'm looking to trade:

1x Leyline of the Void 1x Ensnaring Bridge (STH) 1x Sakashima the Impostor 1x The Chain Veil 1x Purphoros, God of the Forge 2x Vedalken Orrery 1x Scourge of the Throne 1x Life from the Loam 1x Tainted Pact 1x Nature's Will 1x Opalescence 1x Isochron Scepter 1x Master Transmuter 2x Sterling Grove 1x Karador, Ghost Chieftain 3x Nim Deathmantle 1x Lotus Bloom 4x Puresteel Paladin

...and others not mentioned.
