Struyk on Harsh Tormenting Punishment

1 day ago

Also made a similar deck and played a few rounds on MTG arena and here is what I noticed:

Primal Amulet  Flip x3 is just too much: You don't want to have 2 in your hand / in the game and it's too slow. I would go with 1x.

Duress and Lay Bare the Heart should be a sideboard only option vs blue decks and creatureless decks as you have no creature and shouldn't worry about control spells ( change for Harsh Scrutiny and Never )

Vraska's Contempt is IMO a direct downgrade from Never so I would remove 2 of those and add 2 more Never, the exile is only useful like one in 20 games...

Fatal Push is an awesome early defence card and I would suggest using 4 of those ( pretty expensive though )

Phyrexian Scriptures is a 4 cost board / graveyard wipe and I would suggest using 4 of those as well, these won me almost every game so far. What's awesome about it is that it has a 1 turn delay which means your opponent can't play any creatures that turn and you can chain them if you draw multiple. Sideboard it for Divest vs artifact decks.

Divest I sideboard vs artifact decks Gonti's Machinations I sideboard vs rush and direct damage decks Cruel Reality I sideboard vs slow decks and this deck

Shadowhawk1530 on Beam me up, Tezzeret!

1 week ago

First of all thank you TepigAggro for your feedback.

After some discussion with a friend we both agreed that 12 artifacts migth be a little to low. Also I realised that 4 Phyrexian Scriptures might be to much since I wanted to keep the manabase focused on Blue for Tezzeret, Artifice Master. I will move 1 or 2 of them to the sideboard to fill up the 2 slots I still have and board out one Sai, Master Thopterist aswell since he will not trigger often enough and consitently enough with only 12 artifacts.

As to your other additions, yes, Skilled Animator into Scrapheap oder even better Heart of Kiran will create a nice boardpresence with a 1/3 body and a (flying, vigilance) 5/5 artifact creature that can attack that turn. Skilled Animator looks like a premium 3-drop for this deck

Feltrix on Mono-B Midrange

It might be a good idea to make this a little more artifact based, maybe adding another monument, some Walking Ballistas, some Phyrexian Scriptures, and Phylactery Lich. Also, maybe a Bone Dragon.

Stazeeee on Dominaria Constructs

@Onyxio I think the general consensus is that Weatherlight is not a great card, especially when compared to Heart of Kiran. It comes out 2 turns later and has to connect to give the benefit. Plus it doesn't have vigilance which makes Seal Away great against it.

@Bodyrocker89Liking the changes. I feel like Foundry Inspector would be better as a 3 or 2 of though. By the time you have the 3 mana to cast it you only need 1 more mana to be able to cast anything else in the deck and it won't help you cast an extra spell per turn that often. It's still not bad as a 3/2 that can crew Heart of Kiran on turn 3.

I really like Phyrexian Scriptures as it helps against anything using The Scarab God and/or God-Pharoah's Gift as a form of board clear and graveyard hate. You may even consider putting 1 more in the sideboard instead of Silent Gravestone. You can put it in against any creature deck that can match your board, or against God-Pharoah's Gift and The Scarab God other words I think it's more flexible than Silent Gravestone and specifically gives your deck more of an advantage in a lot of match ups. Though Silent Gravestone can be a lot better if you get it out on turn 1 against U/B since they can't counter it yet (but the chances of you having it in your opening hand are slim).

I may give the deck a try at some point before Metallic Mimic rotates. Though I think +2 Scrap Trawler, +1 Heart of Kiran, +1 Bomat Courier, and -4 Foundry Inspector could be something to try. I really like Scrap Trawler b/c Metallic Mimic and Heart of Kiran are both huge targets for removal and being able to 2 for 1 them is a lot of value.

Simon714 on Foil Phyrexian Scriptures - Sell ...

1 month ago

I opened a foil Phyrexian Scriptures in a pack and I'm not sure if I actually want it. Should I sell now? Wait a few weeks and then sell? Or are these unique enough that they could build in price over a long hold? I'm a patient person and I don't NEED money right away, but I'd like to get the most out of it however that may be.

ShreddedByCrows on Black Devotion

2 months ago

lance4224130 Hey, as we are playing exactly the same colours EDH decks, I had to come here too!

I started EDH with a Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief deck (which is on my page if you want to have a look, it may give you some ideas).

As experienced, I don't really like Magus of the Coffers. Even if you got the boots to directly equip him (and you don't play them, which is understandable with Erebos as commander), it's really slow. If you're looking for a card with a similar effect, you could put in a Doubling Cube (a bit greedy though, but I love this card), an Extraplanar Lens (play snow-covered swamps if you go for it, so your opponents won't get any benefits) or Jet Medallion.

Consuming Vapors feels badly slow and only affect one dude. Even if it has rebound, I won't play it. I play Choice of Damnations in my Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck because I have the ability to down everyone life totals quite quickly... in a hard control deck as this one, I think it's just not good enough. Your opponents will often choose to lose something like 9-10 life points on the best cases, and you will spend all your mana in a useless card. Same reaction for Consume Spirit, Soul Burn and Drain Life. Except maybe in some greedy Jeleva decklists, Curse of the Cabal seems like a bad card for EDH.

If you want to play devotion, Phyrexian Obliterator and Necropotence are staples. Erebos's Titan is not bad either (and flavorful). Dread Shade at leat deserves some testing playtime. Even if it's not your initial strategy, Grave Titan is huge and ugly - so it's definitely everything you like in his kind of deck. Kokusho, the Evening Star is a great tread to take advantage on your opponents.

If you want to stay on a more ''creatureless'' devotion version, you could try out Kuon, Ogre Ascendant which is hard to flip, but pretty damn effective.

All Is Dust makes out as a great board-clear, but you should keep in mind it also forces you to sacrifice your enchantments. Phyrexian Scriptures are nice in synergy with The Abyss, but it's quite a slow card. Massacre Wurm is a nice card to control the board (hum... to destroy every token deck), healing you and giving you a strong body on the battlefield.

Grim Tutor and Increasing Ambition are another good tutor options.

Bitterblossom with Contamination and/or Attrition is op - Bloodghast / Ophiomancer serve the same purposes, and you will also love to add Skullclamp if you go for it, having access to a nice sac outlet is what makes monoB that strong in my opinion (also with cards like Ashnod's Altar, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos (flavorful!) etc.).

Painful Quandary is an insanly powerful card in Control decks. For other cruel cards as this one, you have Lethal Vapors, Oppression, Death Cloud or Capital Punishment.

Waste Not could fit if you add some mass discards effects (like Bottomless Pit (not the best example as you also discard AT RANDOM, meh...), Vindictive Lich, etc.).

You have the Lich's Mastery which seems funny.

I certainly forgot a lot of cards, but I'll let you know if something else come to my mind. Have great fun building it up!
