Metallic Rebuke Discussion
23 hours ago
Aether Revolt really helped this style of deck. Fatal Push and Metallic Rebuke add a control element, Winding Constrictor and Walking Ballista complement the Tireless Tracker alt win condition (and the main one), and Tezzeret the Schemer is a huge boon for the end game. Tezzeret comes on board with six counters so I can get at least two Etherium Cells whenever he's cast. This way on the turn Marionette Master is cast I can sack Cells to sack Clues and either shoot face with Ballista so he dies or just cast for zero from my hand. Shooting my own Marionette Master 1's servos with a second Marionette Master in play was particularly fun. I just won Amonkhet game day against the best decks with this list: Sultai Master

@AtomicEmpire : Thanks! I appreciate that. I've been a fan of your esper for awhile. Cryptic Command would be great. My only hesitation is that it's 4mana and I'm running only 20 lands. I do like the bounce for extra tutors of Trinket Mage. I'd have to cut 2-3 cards for some extra islands to fit cryptic in there. Any suggestions for the cut?
@ Xica: Metallic Rebuke lets me drop artifacts in the first 2 turns and still hold an island up for counter mana. Dissolve isn't very good in here because the artifacts already give the deck free card filtering, so it's pretty much just a Cancel in most cases.

interesting Deck! but why wouldn't you wanna swop the two Negate in favour for two more copies of Metallic Rebuke? same with Unlicensed Disintegration, I'd keep four copies of that one and instead renounce Geistblast and Deny Existence. Also, you only got 10 creatures which is very few in my opinion. I'd suggest you get some servo or thopter spawners. e.g exchange the two copies of Renegade Map for two copies of Servo Schematic, so you can double the amount of artifacts you control. With creatures like Maverick Thopterist you'll get two thopters with flying on the field, idealy on turn 3!So I just don't see you hammer, if you plan to assemble a ton of artifacts to ramp them, I'd use more artifact creatures and thopter tokens to push with Tezzeret's Touch. or you add some heavy swingers, like Herald of Anguish with improvise. maybe you're focusing on fewer mechanics instead of spreading your deck spectre. Anyhow, seems interesting! I am also currently trying on assembling a Tezz deck, blue with black/red splash, check it out and tell me what ya think of it :) --> Tezzeret's etherium improved minions

djnewellmit I have not though about Unsubstantiate! I can run those sideboard. Also I'm going to throw in Commencement of Festivities and I've tried Confirm Suspicions but it was always way too slow. I may try some Metallic Rebuke sideboard though. Thanks for your input! I really appreciate it!

Sorry for responding so late, I've been out of town most of the week.Ajande01- thanks for the recommendations, I actually think I will replace Servant of the Conduit with Naga Vitalist instead of Channeler Initiate as the only colors I need are green and blue, and Vitalist gives me either for as many uses as I want (as long as I have land that produces both colors). Also will be replacing Metallic Rebuke and Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter for a better counter and one-drop. The Sideboard was a misplacement, those were supposed to be in the maybe board, I just added them into the wrong place.Swastikuitar- I will look into Kiora also, thanks!.

Since you have no other energy synergies Channeler Initiate would probably serve you better as a 2CMC mana dork than Servant of the Conduit as it gives you more activations and can evade some removal later in the game. As well I would recommend taking out the Metallic Rebuke, since your only source of artifacts is Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter, and include some combination of Essence Scatter and Censor. And lastly your sideboard looks more like a maybeboard for the deck, it should have answers for the meta, not value cards that you couldn't include in the 60, Walking Ballista is ok in it, the rest should either be reconsidered or worked into the main deck to make room for answers

Charles_Grimlie, thank you for your kind words.
I mostly agree with you when it comes to Simian Spirit Guide. It's a color I don't use to begin with and it's trading cheap mana for crucial card disadvantage. Yet I feel there's more than initially meets the eye, and I'm hoping that I can do a fair job of arguing its point while still emphasizing that I agree with you.
My current view on making the deck its most optimal is by removing the alternate win-con of lethal damage and focusing solely on Infinite Mill. Not meaning to sound redundant (as I've already shared my thoughts in my description), but this can change a few things for the deck and open it up:
- I could drop the full set of Steppe Lynx. Two slots would go to creating a full set of Altar of the Brood totaling eight milling pieces, and would open up two more slots.
- With the inclusion of two more colorless artifacts, the dependence on color-specific mana eases up a bit.
- Even if Spirit Guide is in the hand and isn't being spent on a combo piece, it can be exiled to pay for any , surprising many opponents with an unexpected Remand with one open land. Additionally, it would make running 2CMC cards less stressful. I could replace Spell Pierce for Mana Leak more confidently, or even attempt Metallic Rebuke with the artifacts I run. (Same could be said for running Thirst for Knowledge in place of either Sorcery for more drawing power and chance of casting it for .)
All in all, I believe it still would be impractical, but I feel it's worth more than it would first seem. It may warrant me to playtest it a bit, but I don't know if the overall card disadvantage will be worth it at all. If it ends up working for the turn 3 Infinite Mill combo, I'll update this deck list to reflect it.
Do you have any suggestions for the sideboard? I already know hand disruption will be the death of me, so I plan on 4x Leyline of Sanctity. However, I'm not sure what I would do with the remaining slots.
