Mishra's Factory Discussion
1 day ago
ej133 - Thanks! It's pretty clear at this point we have similar (and I mean great!) deck tastes. At any rate, you've caught me in mid-build. I'm not much of a legacy player, although looking to move in that direction. As you may have noticed, I don't even have 60 cards yet--any suggestions? Don't know if I want the Search for Azcanta Flip(really thought it might be decent because it can provide some advantage under Standstill). I have thought about maybe throwing in a few Daze or Spell Pierce. Also thought about getting really spicy and putting in 4x Spellstutter Sprites, and alongside that swapping the Mishra's Factory(ies) for Mutavaults and Vendilion Cliques. Enlightened Tutor also seems sweet here.

Dash Hopes is a horrible card. It inspires visions of opponents dying to lifeloss and key pieces of combos being countered. Unfortunately it doesn't work that way; instead comboplayers happily drop 5 life on the turn where their combo goes of, and control decks happily dropping whichever card you countered, the pilot being happy that you just chose to trade 1-for-1. Could be exchanged for those 2 Thoughtseize in the sideboard.
You have a lot of relatively high cost cards, when considering Dark Confidant.

Hey guys short question. I could not find an understandable answer so I try it here.
Thank you in advance!

No problem AwesomeDoofus! Glad my suggestions could be of some help!
It's true that more efficient CMCs will often lead to higher prices i.e. Liliana's Caress vs Raider's Wake. Though, if your LGS (local game store) is selling Liliana's Caress for 8$, that is truly egregious. You can find them here for 2-3$ a card here TCG Player and I suggest buying other cards on that website since they have very competitive pricing.
My opinion of Consume the Meek is not very high considering that you can wipe the whole board for the same mana cost in cards like Crux of Fate. Pestilence Demon is also pretty meh to me because it is terribly expensive unless you are running some kind of reanimation deck with cards like Entomb and Animate Dead OR ramp spells like Dark Ritual, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and Cabal Ritual. If Tempt with Immortality is already a very medium card in your deck, then I would shy away from adding other medium cards to the deck like Crypt Incursion just to make the other medium cards better. It's simply better to not have the initial medium card in the deck to begin with. The other cards I'm not so big on as well, especially when you consider that you wanted to add more discard to the deck. These other cards would make that hard to do.
Unfortunately the best discard effects are pretty expensive because they see play across multiple formats. These include-
-to name a few
The other problem with discard spells is that they lose their potency late into the game because people will simply be drawing and playing their only card and have nothing to discard. This is why cards like The Rack and Black Vise are so good. These cards create tension within your opponent and gives value to your discard spells late into the game. Your opponent will not want to play anything so that they can keep cards in hand to not take damage from the artifacts, this means your discard spells will actually be worthwhile late into the game creating a lose-lose situation for the opponent because they will take damage from the artifacts if they play what they draw, but if they don't play what they draw you may just make them discard it anyway and how can they win if they are not playing the cards they draw? A deck that looks to enable this strategy on a budget for 1vs1 (so no Liliana of the Veil or Thoughtseize) might look like this-
4x Dark Ritual (this card enables you to do very powerful things early in the game such as play Hymn, and Inquisition on turn 1)
1x Waste Not
4x The Rack
4x Black Vise
Two things to notice here, 1 there are no creatures. This means cards like Innocent Blood, Pox, and Smallpox do not affect us in that way, only our opponent. Our main win condition here are the Rack and Vise, so no need for creatures. The Mishra's Factorys are just a plan B. This also makes a lot of our opponents cards, like removal spells, very bad against us limiting the amount of impactful cards they can play against us. The second, is you'll notice there are a lot of 4ofs. Rather than having 1 of this and 2 of that, having multiple copies of 1 card increases the percentage that we actually draw it or have it in our opening hand. What this means is that our deck is much more efficient because the chances and percentages of us drawing the cards we need are as high as they can be. This is an important aspect of deck building to keep in mind.
Now, that last deck was a true discard deck. If you want to play creatures though and want to be swinging for damage in Mono then I would suggest a Devotion deck which exploits the power of cards like Gray Merchant of Asphodel by trying to get as many symbols on the battlefield as possible. A Devotion deck with budget in mind (so no Phyrexian Obliterator) for 1vs1 might look like this-
4x Doom Blade
4x Brain Maggot
Now these two decks I put here are just simple examples of different directions to go, obviously if you do a mix of both of them, then you will inevitably dilute the strategy of one another but that's certainly okay if that's what you want to do. It's kind of where I would put the deck as it stands now. You have some discard, you have some creatures, some of it synergizes with the rest, but as a whole it is not as focused as the decks above. All of this is to answer your last paragraph when you ask, "What is worth keeping?" Well, that's a tough question because we first have to ask, "What is it we are trying to do?" Once you answer this, you can then eliminate the cards that don't help in those areas and add more copies of the ones that do. Now, I don't want to push you one way or the other, I simply want to provide the options so that you know what possibilities are out there.
I hope this was not terribly overwhelming, and you are right, this is what I enjoy doing on this site so its no trouble to me! So if you have more questions please feel free to ask!

There's also the flagbearers: Coalition Flag Coalition Honor Guard Standard Bearer But they don't really have synergy with each other. You might be able to pull some shenanigans if you give a flagbearer hexproof or protection with a changeling out though.
Thelon of Havenwood, Fungal Bloom, Sporesower Thallid, Savage Thallid and Pallid Mycoderm are all listed as saprolings. I don't know if you merged fungus and saproling intentionally, but if you did it might make sense to change saproling tech to saproling/fungus tech.

Yes, you do. Also, just so you know, it's really helpful for people reading your question if you link to the cards in question (Mishra's Factory and Propaganda). If you don't know how to do this, put double square brackets around the card you want to link to, like this:
[[Mishra's Factory]] and [[Propaganda]]

Hi, I've been looking into actually putting together a Tana//Reyhan deck, and realized that Reyhan has some cool synergy with Man-Lands. As long as no one has targetted removal at the ready, these lands can retain a ton of the value/counters during a board wipe. Something like this: say you have a ton of saprolings who all got several +1/+1s from Mazirek earlier in the game, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, and Mishra's Factory. When a wipe hits, respond to the last of the Reyhan triggers by activating Mishra's Factory, and dump all the counters on it. You get to keep all the counters, with the drawbacks being that it puts your lands at risk, and you need to sac a land to move those counters off.
