Myr Enforcer Discussion

Like how some people flicker Mulldrifter so it stays in play, you could evoke something, and while its sacrifice ability is on the stack, flash in your EDF. That way, you'd only have to pay a fraction of the cost.
If you're going for a graveyard strategy with Champion of Wits, I'd say unearth is probably the way to go. Unearth a Fatestitcher, and sacrifice that to pay your emerge costs. If you use it to untap the land that paid for unearth, you could get EDF as early as turn 3.
After looking at it, I want to investigate the possibility of affinity (or improvise) with emerge. You can cast Memnite, Frogmite, Myr Enforcer followed by Decimator of the Provinces, and swing for some serious damage pretty early.

Looks fun! Only thing I'd change is to sub out Natural State for Nature's Claim, Gleeful Sabotage or Naturalize. Being able to kill Myr Enforcer, Spire Golem, etc is important. I started off running State and learned the hard way!

Well first of all, power 9 is mostly Vintage :-p BUT formats don't matter, formats are a conspiracy
BUT that being said I agree with this list. Brainstorm should be on here because it's bonkers in Pauper. Imo Delver wouldn't survive without Brainstorm.
I'd say Slippery Bogle should be in the list, I mean it's a formidable foe and that hexproof ability really screws games up.
Urza lands are cool and all but it's not like tron is the best thing in the world lol. I personally don't find urza lands to be that good, like Myr Enforcer is just as good imo.

Wurmlover, welcome to pauper!
I run affinity and WUBRG, which is a tron variant. WUBRG is usually a good match for Affinity, seeing as its main focus is to cast Fangren Marauder and sac a ton of artifacts. The marauder also triggers for affinity's artifacts, which negates damage dealt by Atog. With WUBRG, I run 4 Chromatic Star, 4 Chromatic Sphere, and 4 Prophetic Prism, to name a few, which help me build up Mana for my 3 mainboarded Rolling Thunder. The marauders also provide nice blocking fodder against Myr Enforcer and Carapace Forger

There are a ton of fun cards and synergies here - it's like Affinity's big sibling.
My primary concern is speed. I think this would be a super fun deck to play in a playgroup or meta full of brews, but at an FNM, I think you might feel a step behind some other decks.
Imagine if you melded this with an Affinity list and played several 0- and 1-drop artifact creatures like Memnite, Ornithoper, and Signal Pest.
Then add in several Chief Engineer and, say, a few Trinket Mage and Trophy Mage cards.
Then add in Welding Jar and Cranial Plating.
Then add in, maybe, a Platinum Angel, a Platinum Emprion, and any 2-4 1-ofs from your favorite bombs up above (definitely include a Colossus).
You might even have room for some Thoughtcast and removal like Fatal Push.
I'd also rebalance your land-base towards cards that come in un-tapped so you can have a speedy start. Glimmervoid, Mox Opal, and Inkmoth Nexus are all helpful, but also big investments to trade towards or buy.
A possible FNM list (though you could go further toward Affinity if you wanted):
- 4x Chief Engineer
- 4x Memnite
- 4x Ornithopter
- 4x Signal Pest
- 2x Trinket Mage
- 1x Big critter
- 1x Big critter
- 1x Big critter
- 1x Big critter
- 4x Welding Jar
- 4x Thoughtcast (or Thirst for Knowledge)
- 2x Fatal Push or another removal spell (or Boomerang?)
- 2x Go for the Throat or Doom Blade
- 6x Flex spots (maybe Ensoul Artifact, Etched Champion, Path to Exile, Whir of Invention, Myr Enforcer, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Platinum Angel, Platinum Emperion, more big critters, or some of the artifacts you list above)
- 10x Island
- 5x Swamp
- 5x Plains
I'd play a deck like this at FNM to give yourself early blockers that are a threat with Plating until you can cast bigger creatures that might close the game. I'd go for broke casting your big monsters in a more casual setting. You can work towards quicklands, checklands, fetches, and shocks through trades and whatnot to develop the land-base further, but speed is good.
I hope some of those suggestions help! There are a lot of Affinity players out there who could give better advice :)

I've been considering Golem Foundry tricks for some time now. I've been thinking things like using Ornithopter, Bone Saw, Lotus Petal, etc. as free artifact casts. You could also replace some basics with Seat of the Synod & Tree of Tales to Affinity-cast Frogmites and Myr Enforcers, upping your artifact-casting-triggers.
Maybe some of that gives you ideas. =)

Thank you SilverBlaze109 for your suggestions!
I agree with you that Bonesplitter is better than Godsend. I just like Godsend because it makes my group freak out when I play it. Also I wanted something other than raw damage, just because it makes the game a little more interesting and I already beat my group before they play a creature. So it's nice to have one card that is rare and interesting other than Puresteel Paladin.
Kor Duelist is very nice. The only problem is that I don't run enough artifacts that could boost his attack. He doesn't really contribute to the artifact affinity and cant be turned into a 5/5 by Ensoul Artifact on turn two. However, I have run the numbers a little bit and he can be worth running for sure, so I think I am going to remove Myr Enforcer and then the affinity thing isn't an issue. Then to fix the boosting problem I am going to remove Signal Pest which doesn't really work anymore and add in two more Cranial Plating.

Crippling Blight seems weak in a deck that isn't highly aggressive.
I also question the inclusion of Doom Blade/Murder. Not only could they be replaced with Seal of Doom, most problems they solve are solved just as easily by Lignify. Since you already have a lot of targeted removal (especially if you run Blightcaster), perhaps it would be better to diversify into your favorite variant of Diabolic Edict, Geth's Verdict, or Tyrant's Choice?
I don't think it's optimal but you could also consider running Despondency as a way to keep those Constellation triggers coming.
Overall seems like a lot of fun!
