DarthVirulence on Blue/Black Tezzeret Artifact

4 days ago

Have you considered Tezzeret's Touch and Skilled Animator coupled with some low-cost artifacts like Sparring Construct, Voltaic Servant or Ornithopter ?

The title says black/blue artifacts but currently looks more like a control deck that hopes to get artifacts at some point. In the current iteration, Sai, Master Thopterist is pretty useless because you don't really have any artifacts to cast and make use of its ability.

Cards I'd say to look into: Explosive Apparatus, Sparring Construct, Metallic Mimic, Mishra's Self-Replicator, Skilled Animator, Tezzeret's Touch

Even just a few of those in the deck will give you some artifacts to make use of. - Helm of the Host + Mishra's Self-Replicator + Sai, Master Thopterist is a decent backbone to pair with both Tezzeret and Karn AND they can be made even strong with your Antiquities War or Skilled Animator

(Otherwise there's Metalwork Colossus and Traxos, Scourge of Kroog but those do not benefit from being 5/5s.

Hope that helps! :) Good luck!

Usually I do either T1 Siren Stormtamer + Ornithopter and T2 Curious Obsession on the Ornithopter and Siren protects it with the second available mana; or T1 Siren Stormtamer and T2 second island, Curious Obsession and I have dive down in my hand to protect Siren.

Yeah, I think the easiest way is to use either Ornithopter or Mox Amber with Scrap Trawler. But I think a sacrifice outlet is needed.

Drakorya on BRAWL: Teshar?

1 week ago

It's possible to try to combo with Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, but because Brawl is a singleton format it becomes pretty convoluted and difficult.

The combo would involve having Teshar on the battlefield with Scrap Trawler and Sanctum Spirit. You would also need Metalwork Colossus in your hand or graveyard, and either a Mox Amber or an Ornithopter in hand.

You can then discard the Metalwork Colossus to Sanctum Spirit, cast the Ornithopter (or Mox Amber) and sacrifice it and Scrap Trawler to return Metalwork Colossus to your hand. Use the Scrap Trawler's trigger to return Ornithopter to your hand, then cast it and use Teshar's trigger to return Scrap Trawler to play.

You can repeat this process ad infinitum. Then if you have an Aetherflux Reservoir or Bontu's Monument on the battlefield you can win from the triggers.

All that being said, it's probably way to convoluted to be a reliable win condition. And it would involve adding quite a few cards to the deck. But I thought I'd mention it just in case you're a fan of janky combo wins like I am.

dhynes1 Now that is an interesting card... The mana cost is a tad high (understandably) and the $ price is a tad up there. But that is a win if I have something like Spellbook and a Ornithopter out. Just picking through my library until I find Leveler and Laboratory Maniac. Or really any number of things. I will definitely put that one in the 'to buy' section.

sg_86 on Brood Combo [Turn 3 Win]

3 weeks ago

I like this combo mainly because of the flexibility in the cards you can combo off with. One 0 mana artifact (Welding Jar probably being the best, Herbal Poultice, or the creatures), one creature that untaps when the artifact ETBs (there are 5 different creatures that do this: Battered Golem, Nettle Drone, Zephyr Scribe if you use a non-creature artifact, Traxos, Scourge of Kroog which is also a wincon on its own, and Mirran Spy), one card that has an ability that triggers whenever a permanent, artifact or creature if you use them enters the battlefield (Molten Nursery, Altar of the Brood, Impact Tremors, or Nettle Drone does it as well), and Retraction Helix or Banishing Knack.

I think that adding red gives you some good options like Nettle Drone and Molten Nursery. I also think that you should run on average 6 of each of the combo pieces. Welding Jar and Herbal Poultice I think are better than Ornithopter and Memnite as they protect the combo. This is probably better than the nut draw of getting the combo out on turn 3.

Springleaf Drum only has one purpose and does not do much if you don't have Memnite or Ornithopter in your opening hand.

Ceru99 on Artifact Midrange

Instead of trying to cast artifacts every turn, why not just make Traxos have Vigilance? Seems like it would be easier to fit in a Forebear's Blade. I'd keep the low drop artifacts in there for Traxos, but I'd also recomend Ornithopter as a 0 drop its pretty easy to cast and it can block flying. Plus its not a bad pull for Scrap Trawler and works well with the set up. Splashing white isn't a terrible idea either, though it may be harder to set up some of the deck, but you'd get things like Board the Weatherlight and Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage. The Mage would be real fun to use as you can flash in Ornithopter to block or untap Traxos for combat tricks. I see that you're worried about it being too slow and I understand that issue. Just some ideas. I've built a deck very similar to this and that bird is amazing.

Flagellum on Jhoira Artifact Storm o' Doom (competitive edh)

3 weeks ago

Any suggestions for a more budget friendly build? Obviously the Mox's and other more costly rocks/lands are out. I have seen a list that uses Intruder Alarm along with Banishing Knack targeting a cost artifact creature like Ornithopter. I'm just wondering if the lower budget would break it or if cheeri0s would be better on a budget. Sadly I also run Breya (no restrictive budget there though) so another artifact deck makes me hesitant although this one seems fun as well.
