Metallic Rebuke Discussion

elkion on Mono blue control

I think this deck is moving in an interesting direction! Here are some suggestions for the current controlling direction

Disappearing Act It's a counterspell that can get you value. If you have two of these and a Mystic Sanctuary you can counter every turn. Tragic Lesson can also help out with the Mystic Sanctuary toolbox/lock and you need some card draw anyways

Metallic Rebuke : If you want to keep going the artifact route, this could be a great counterspell. Shimmer Dragon is probably your best win con if you keep going with the artifacts. Might even be something with Silumgar's Scorn

Fae of Wishes : A great blocker if you need one, or you can tutor a wincon/silver bullet from your sideboard and make it so your opponent's removal is basically meaningless.

I also strongly recommend putting some number of Tempest Djinn in your main/side as it is such a powerhouse of a card for almost no $$$ and it shores up a big weakness for you, decks that go bigger than you and require you to just kill them.

I hate to say it but I think your whole energy package can go away, none of those cards are up to the format's power level. If you really wanna stick to Energy, check out Confiscation Coup and Aether Meltdown.

-2x Inventors' Fair +2x Ghost Quarter in the mainboard.

-3x Metallic Rebuke +2x Spell Pierce +1x Spell Snare

The Inventors' Fair proved itself too much of a mana commitment, sacrificing a land and using 4 mana, to be of much use. Ghost Quarter is, usually, even less worthwhile but it can buy an extra turn against Tron.

Casting Metallic Rebuke improvising two proved more costly than anticipated also very predictable. So I'll be testing out Spell Pierce and Spell Snare . I'm also considering putting some planeswalkers or creatures instead.

Your list is very similar to mine, Affinity: Flinging 'Togs. The only differences are:

  1. You play a 2nd Ray of Revelation in the sideboard over Reaping the Graves

  2. You play a 3rd Flayer Husk over the 2nd Gearseeker Serpent .

  3. You play a 3rd Hydroblast in the sideboard over Relic of Progenitus .

  4. You play a 3rd Springleaf Drum over a Metallic Rebuke .

I assume we both think our own versions are better, but what are your thoughts on this?

Well Serum Visions is actually a good idea, I was already thinking of adding some. For Scourglass I feel that it's a really important card as it removes all permanents except for terrains and artifacts, therefore it is useful against decks that use planeswalkers and enchantments too, the only downside being that I have to wait a turn before it becomes effective. It is also my principal way of making a clear path for my Lodestone Golem as they're pretty weak to chump-blocking. For counters I felt like Metallic Rebuke was a great addition as my artifacts can help paying the extra cost brought by the golem and its copies.

For additionnal creatures I was thinking of Shimmer Myr so I can keep my mana for the opponent's turn and play my artifacts if they doesn't play anything that needs to be countered. It's also quite useful to play a surprise Scourglass at the end of their turn and activate it in my upkeep. But I'm quite reticent as it still is a weak creature for 3 manas that doesn't really brings something to my board directly.

I was also thinking of Sram's Expertise but it'd be weak without any lord effect. Sculpting Steel is also an option but I'm afraid it'll be too often useless because of a lack of Lodestone Golem to copy. Phyrexian Metamorph doesn't have this problem as I can copy an opponent's creature (pretty useful way to find an alternative kill, that'll survive Scourglass while the opponent's one won't).

In conclusion, the ideal additions would be 2-manas artifact creatures but I can't find any (I searched through eveything that was Modern-legal) so I think I'm just gonna add some control to stall the game until I can hit the board with numerous Lodestone Golem s.

There are a few cards in here that seem like they could be improved... Dhund Operative seems like it's not doing anything, and Metallic Rebuke could be replaced with Stoic Rebuttal . Sphinx's Tutelage also seems like a good addition.

Hi! Thank you for your advice. I've really appreciete it. I'm gonna explain my choises. In my opinion the biggest problem with affinity (both the classical version and the monster version from Datenda) is that is slower than other aggros deck and too slow to really affect control player. Normally with the classical version I begin to be dengerous in the 4th-5th turn (when I’m able to play Gearseeker Serpent and more creatures on turn three). Too late. With this version normally I could cast a Somber Hoverguard on turn 3 having still some spell to protect him from counter or remuval and mana to cast them. Also play Gearseeker Serpent is easier. Moreover, equipping a Bone Saw on a Somber Hoverguard often means 4 flying damages (better than a Delver of Secrets  Flip). That means put on your opponent a clock of 5 turns, instead of seven. You are right, when you say that this list seems not so agressive, but I wouldn't say that artifacts like Bone Saw are do-nothing artifact. It gives this list a way to play its menaces faster, they help this menaces getting bigger, gives you (toghether with Artificer's Assistant the possibility to scry1 for free and a free way to discount Metallic Rebuke. I know, I'm going increadibly missing Atog, but I find it too predictable these days. When you know your opponent is playing affinity, you know that there is a possibility for a Atog + Fling , and in a meta dominated by blue it is not so problematic. So I'm finding it too risky for the current meta, at least in my lgs. You’re are also right when you find strange that Thoughtcast is missing. But in this version you need to know exactly what are you drawing in order to avoid dead draws in mid and late game. This is the reason why I prefer Preordain, Serum Visions and I use Artificer's Assistant. I’m considering to replace Executioner's Capsule with Galvanic Blast, but I fear that would be difficult adjust the mana base. Thank you again for your advice, let me know what you think.

EpicBox75 on I now Bant you a clue.

I love the idea of this deck but I don't see it doing much against other modern decks.

If you money to spare I would suggest: Noble Hierarch or/and Birds of Paradise and Collected Company

But if you want to do budget deck any 1 mana elf like Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic will do the job because you need that mana acceleration to crack your clues faster. Tamiyo, Field Researcher could be cool card and she is pretty cheap. Mana Leak or Metallic Rebuke or Remand because multiple Deprive will but you back in lands especially with out mana producing creatures. Dromoka's Command can be nice removal spell that can buffs your creature.

I would recommend pitching both Ongoing Investigation 1-2 Courser of Kruphix 0-2 Bygone Bishop all 3 Angelic Purge

Also for mana base in 3 colors I highly recommend getting some two color lands and real fetch lands for more reliable manabase. Temple Garden is now cheap thanks for wizard reprinting it and Hallowed Fountain and Breeding Pool are coming in next set so their price will go lower. Also Seachrome Coast and/or Razorverge Thicket if you want fast lands so you can get turn 1 white without pain. And if you have the money few Horizon Canopy are extremely powerful

For sideboard suggestions Dispell or Spell Pierce fast, cheap and effective Damping Sphere against tron and storm/other combo decks Knight of Autumn value creature that does it all, Rest in Peace, Worship, Settle the Wreckage or Supreme Verdict, Kitchen Finks, Celestial Purge, Blessed Alliance

I hope that this helps

eatmygender on I think I created a ...

I... think I might have accidentally created a new deck Archetype by messing around with -Drop artifacts and Affinity. The idea is this: Play dumb amounts of Free artifacts (Including Artifact lands), Remove Threats with an OP Galvanic Blast or Metallic Rebuke, pump out Gearseeker Serpent really early or feed all of those artifacts to Atog. Could use some help? Not sure how to expand on this idea. The deck can be found here.
