Metalwork Colossus Discussion

Hey friend! Love the deck idea; it's super original. However, your deck suffers from being a tad unfocused. You've got a lot of ideas rattling around here at once, and so as a whole your deck will not be as effective. For casual builds, that's fine, but if you're interested in taking it to the next level, I'd focus the deck a bit more.

Firstly, if you're going to Servo tribal specifically, I'd add in W. Master Trinketeer, Angel of Invention, Servo Exhibition, and Sram's Expertise are all auto-includes in a Servo tribal build.

On the other hand, if you want to go UG AEtherflux Storm, I'd suggest something like Paradoxical Outcome and a lot of Ornithopters!.

Finally, if you're wanting UG aggro, go with Metalwork Colossus and a Overrun effect.

Hope that helps! The direction the deck goes is up to you, but maybe that will help focus your efforts. Let me know if I can help in any other way! Good luck.

Metallic Mimic does almost nothing in a vehicle deck unless you run it as a dwarf deck with vehicle splash. So drop it out probably.

With so many wastes you could run Walker of the Wastes and maybe a couple other eldrazi. Like Thought-Knot Seer. You can also play things like Warping Wail and Titan's Presence with your metalwork colossus in hand.

You have a ridiculous amount of extra artifacts that don't do anything really. Cut it back to 12-15 artifact vehicles. Up your Metalwork Colossus to 4 because the vehicles make him cheaper.

Figure out the vehicles you have to have. Find the artifacts that actually play to suit your deck. Trim waaaay back on all of it and then splash white and red for Built to Smash, Built to Last, Start Your Engines, Servo Exhibition, and some dwarves.

That's the basics for vehicles. You could also try it colorless eldrazi

Krhaynes1 Consider a few Altered Ego in the sideboard against other big creature decks? You have the mana base to cast it easily.

It won't copy any counters from the targeted creature, but it enters with it's own counters which works with Winding Constrictor. You could target your own Verdurous Gearhulk or even a Hissing Quagmire/Lumbering Falls if you want to get weird. But I mostly use them if the opponent is casting other gearhulks or big dudes (Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Metalwork Colossus, etc.)

What do you think?

Maybe you could add red too add some discard effects and discard big cards like Metalwork Colossus then bring them back with Rise from the Grave turn 3-4 using mana ramp cards. then you get a big Metalwork Colossus or some large eldrazi guy out early then stomp your opponent for the win!!!

In a vehicle deck it's better to run Depala, Pilot Exemplar and Gearshift Ace than it is to run Sram and Ariel responder. They give better boosts to your vehicles. Also while demolition stomper is cool it's not great. Maybe try out Metalwork Colossus instead.

You should find some room for Sram's Expertise and Servo Exhibition. Having little bodies to crew big vehicles is great.

The common "winning" vehicle deck is Mardu vehicles. And its good. Plays fast. Good beat down deck. But I prefer decks built by actual people with originality. So maybe check it out but don't copy it. Good luck to you!

Yeah, Hedron Archive allows turn 5 Metalwork Colossus all on its own.

I have something along these lines put together in my profile, mono blue perpetual draw/cast machine. Curious as to why you have the puzzleknots there, I opted for Corrupted Grafstone and Magnifying Glass, and mainboarded a good 6 or 7 counterspells. Plays out the same, casting most of your deck somewhere between turn 5 and 8 most of the time. Metalwork Colossus is a good backup addition, I may have to try and find some room for 1 or 2.

I played the card shop owner where I usually go, and he got genuinely angry at me for making that deck. He said it's things like this that ruin the fun of playing magic, stupid decks that don't interact at all. He also lost 2-0. I'm not usually the trollish type, but it was hard not to grin through his rant lol.

I mean, there's a fringe mana-rock based deck in Standard actually. You mostly use Hedron Archives and Cultivator's Caravan to power out Metalwork Colossus as fast as possible. So that can be your mana rock deck if you want :)
