Phyrexian Scriptures Discussion
6 days ago
I've decided to just drop Chainer's Torment all together.
I found in my testing that Antiquities war just over preforms in all aspects. Gets through my deck, finds me more mana dorks/rocks(to better capitalize on the Fall play), and sets up a win con on turn six when fall goes off.
The ornithopters will rotate out, but they are just so good for Skilled Animator and Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp.
Still considering Phyrexian Scriptures...

This is rad! I really like the concept and inclusions; it seems like it'd be a blast to play! +1
Esper seems like a solid choice for a Fall of the Thran historic deck. I wanted to build something like this due to the combo of Fall of the Thran and Phyrexian Scriptures, but I couldn't figure out a build I liked. I think your deck looks very synergistic, though, so I may have to build something like it!
Have you considered Jhoira's Familiar? It could help power out your artifacts, sagas and Rona. Plus, it's another artifact flier for Skilled Animator. At 4 cmc, though, it might be a bit slow for this deck.

Final Parting is a combo card, imagine stuffing a Triskelion in the yard and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed in hand, then use Meren to bring back the Triskelion, so you get both cards. Any other two-card combo in which at least one is a creature can be used in this way, and can fetch the whole combo with one card.
Fauna Shaman is actually just gravy (get it, since you use the grave!) value with this deck, and can be used to discard cards, tutor, it has cool lines with Eternal Witness, The Gitrog Monster & Ramunap Excavator, Greenwarden of Murasa, and other creatures you have in the deck.
I'd add in more ramp, Blood Pet could be a fun gimmick, but isn't really too powerful, really, I'd like to make small switches like Deathcap Cultivator for Birds of Paradise, and Thought Vessel for Fellwar Stone, or things in that realm. Heart Warden is really cool too.

_Delta_, thanks for the additional suggestions. I'm definitely going to give your deck list a once over and give my two cents. Phyrexian Scriptures is so cool, and I forgot it existed. The only problem is that hardly any of the creatures in this deck are artifacts. Only 5 of the 20 creatures in this list are artifacts, so potentially I could save more than one creature on the board once mode 2 of the enchantment takes effect. I just want the card anyway so I think i'll pick one up.
lordkunai, thanks for the suggestion of Sejiri Steppe. Its a cool card, but I think the deck has enough evasion at the moment. Blighted Agent is my hardest hitter for the deck, and just having him out (especially early in the game) really wrecks the board. Cards like Apostle's Blessing and Flickering Ward are also pretty decent, but again I think the deck has all the evasion it needs. I just decided to include Vines of Vastwood because it's both the protection and damage boost infect creatures need all in one. I want to try and work in Become Immense but I don't know what to cut. Vedalken Orrery is just too much off theme to include, but it is a great card.
"... does this deck seem a little mana and creature light? 33 lands is pretty light and only 20 creatures?"
I do agree with you that the deck does seem a little light on creatures and land. Personally, I'm not going to run too many creatures because of the extremely high CMC of most of them. Of the 20, 12 creatures have a converted mana cost of or more. Currently I'd prefer to use more powerful creatures as opposed to just having more. As for lands, I'm aiming for something around 34 - 36 lands but again, i'm trying to figure out what to cut.
Again, thanks for commenting/posting on my deck page and keeping the conversation going. I'll try to respond as soon as I can, and eventually i'll figure out what i'd want to do with the page style wise.

I forgot to say in my above post another card suggestion, I was thinking that you might like Phyrexian Scriptures here if at the very least for flavor.

Gleaming Barrier and Lyra Dawnbringer don't really help you out here. I kind of see your point in using Gleaming Barrier for Phyrexian Scriptures with Fountain of Renewal to give Karn's third ability a buff, but I would be focusing on the first two abilities more so than anything by the way this has been built. Aryel, Knight of Windgrace or Resplendent Angel would be a better candidate than Lyra. You could use Mox Amber instead of Gleaming Barrier and use Ajani's Welcome in place of Fountain of Renewal.

Phyrexian Scriptures board wipes all non artifact creatures. Its been a game changer for me many times. It also makes one of your creatures become an artifact creature with a 1/1 counter. Even its last ability has saved my ass many times. Its great against decks that utilize their graveyard by exiling all cards from opponents graveyards leaving yours untouched.

I too have been trying to build an artifact deck and love the fact you're using Phylactery Lich! What are your thoughts on Phyrexian Scriptures and Curator's Ward? If it wasn't rotating out, I would also mention Padeem, Consul of Innovation. LOL Out of curiosity have you worked on a non-budget friendly version of this deck concept? If so, do you have it posted elsewhere in this Site? Would truly love to see your thoughts on that and use something like this at the next Store Championship! Thank you.
