Phyrexia's Core Discussion

Blizerdman on I DON'T WANT FRIENDS

How about Obliterate, Burning of Xinye, or Decree of Annihilation?

Also Nevinyrral's Disk combos with Mycosynth Lattice and Darksteel Forge. Clock of Omens and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer fits into your artifact strategy. Finally Spine of Ish Sah is a very strong card for your deck for it's synergy with Daretti's -2, Scrap Mastery, Trash for Treasure, Phyrexia's Core and Slobad if you chose to add him.

Midwest on The Gall Ta Play Artifacts in Green!

Cool deck idea! I'm running Ghalta as a Commander but instead am playing Mono-Green Dredge. I'm relying on undercosted graveyard matters creatures such as Ghoultree and Splinterfright.

Back to your deck, I'd love to see a Steel Overseer in here. A lot of your artifact creatures are small utility creatures (Myr Retriever, Chief of the Foundry, Junk Diver, etc.) and Steel Overseer would help them grow to keep Ghalta cheap. Verdurous Gearhulk is 8 power for 5 mana with 4 of that power spread across your creatures however you want and is an artifact. These +1/+1 counters work well with Arcbound Reclaimer and Hangarback Walker as well.

Prophetic Prism and Terrarion could both be swapped, in my opinion. Mycosynth Wellspring generates card advantage once it's been sacrificed and helps find Forests which seems important given your very low land count. Smuggler's Copter provides card quality and not card advantage, but seems at least worth consideration.

Buried Ruin and Phyrexia's Core both seem good here.

Hi, I like your deck!

Here are some suggestions:

Justist on A Gruesome Slaughter

Just a few comments:1. What do you plan on sacrificing with Ashnod's Altar? Only Skittering Invasion, Spawning Bed, and Blight Herder put sacrificable creatures on the board, or you'd have to sacrifice the big ones for just 2 mana... Same goes for Eldrazi Monument by the way.
For the mana you could take a look at Blinkmoth Urn, although it may also give mana to your opponents.
2. Gruesome Slaughter sounds fun, but at which point would you actually use it? Half of your creatures seem to have Annihilator, some are so weak that the extra ability won't help, and with a 10/10 you'd probably want to swing face instead of dealing 10 to a creature "for free". Maybe Akroma's Memorial fits better if you plan to have this kind of effect.
3. Which artifacts do you plan to sacrifice with Phyrexia's Core? Otherwise it would just be as good as a Wastes (see point 4).
4. Ash Barrens, Cloudpost, and Holdout Settlement seem to add nothing more than a Wastes would do. While they may look nicer, with more Wastes you could also consider running Solemn Simulacrum and Burnished Hart.
5. You are severely lacking card draw. Consider a Mind's Eye or a Sandstone Oracle.

Storage Matrix was always underwhelming for me, despite running it alongside Blinkmoth Well, Ghirapur AEther Grid, and Clock of Omens.

When you are running only 5 creatures with activated abilities that require tapping and only about 3 others that you would want to attack with, Anger seems underwhelming. Goblin Sharpshooter might be playable (though I think it falls below that threshold), but the other combo pieces are just bad.

At the risk of suggesting too many nonbasic lands, Phyrexia's Core has a fair amount of utility.

Scarecrone is a card that might be worth playing.

How has Mox Opal performed for you? I've been testing it for a while, and it hasn't been quite as good as I'd hoped.

From my experience with Daretti, I would recommend keeping an eye on The Chain Veil. I kept encountering boardstates where I just wanted to discard it and never bother bringing it back.

I like the idea of the deck! I would say that Inventors' Fair is probably a better card in this deck than Phyrexia's Core because it'll most likely gain you life every turn, and even better, it can fetch an artifact card like Salvage Titan from you deck by sacrificing it. You probably want 4 Executioner's Capsules in the deck and maybe some number of Courier's Capsules, because they fit the artifacts in the graveyard theme, and they help you get ahead on board or with cards in hand! Another couple of cards you might consider that are fairly popular in standard right now are Glint-Nest Crane and Metalwork Colossus. Both of those are cards I could see fitting in here nicely. I get the idea behind the Ironclad Revolutionary, Secret Salvage and Defiant Salvager, but I think they could be easy cards to cut. Most of your artifacts already give you benefits to sacrifice them with their own abilities, so you probably don't need to sacrifice them to other abilities. Secret Salvage is a very high priced cmc and it requires you to have 4 of any card you would want to target with it (or else it isn't even worth it) and it requires one of them to be in the graveyard. Ovalchase Daredevil could be a good recurring creature in a deck like this as well, plus you dont have any cards currently filling the 4 mana cost card slot in your deck. Ultimately it's your deck, and you should put whatever 60 cards you want in there! who cares how good or bad it is if you have fun playing.

Hey!

I'd definitely, like OVER 9000!!!!!!% (Obligatory DBZ joke) recommend taking out the following:

Hellkite Tyrant - I used to play him and he was Bribery'd out of my deck and I was smacked in the face with him. Not fun. Definitely would change him out for like Pia's Revolution as you seem to have a lot more artifact saccing. See Arcbound Ravager and Phyrexia's Core and I mean hell at that point you may want to find something else to ditch for Krark-Clan Ironworks.

4 Mountains trust me the extra fetchlands are well worth it! And because a Strip Mine is pretty dank whenever you're throwing up mana rocks with a Crucible of Worlds in play...

List seems solid. +1!

NewAgeDoom on Mono Black Artifact

Hello everyone, as the title suggests, I'm playing around with Mono Black Artifact (The Black Metal battle deck from Card Kingdom to be exact), and I'm looking for some second opinions on what to actually take out/remove, as I'm not entirely familiar with the decktype. Advice is appreciated. A bit of a pre-note, I am rather enjoying the interplay between the Defiant Salvager and Marionette Master, so any ideas for promoting that would be appreciated. Anywho, on to the decklist:

Creatures

4 Defiant Salvager

3 Marionette Master

4 Dhund Operative

4 Hedron Crawler

4 Galvanic Juggernaut

4 Juggernaut

2 Ramroller

Artifacts

2 Mortarpod

1 Executioner's Capsule

2 Sphere of the Suns

Instants

4 Tragic Slip

Lands

2 Quicksand

2 Blighted Fen

2 Mortuary Mire
