Prophetic Prism Discussion

BerylLasko Thanks for the tips. From what you said, I went ahead and updated the land base to 20 and added the additional Prophetic Prism and two Springleaf Drum. I also added the creature cards to the main you mentioned and the deck feels more dynamic now. I especially like Carapace Forger as a 2 drop.

I feel there's still a way to go to call this strong but I think the base here is reasonable to start.

Hi there! Welcome to Pauper!

I am a big fan Affinity/Metalcraft decks and I notice a couple of things right off the bat:

1) Triggering Affinity: maximize your Artifact Lands! Go 4x in each of your artifact lands, also, Darksteel Citadel can be taken advantage here. The advantage Pauper has is the ability to run Artifact lands, use them!

2) Splashing color (green) advice: splashing for color is fine, but having 8 forests for just one spell seems a bit excessive. Take advantage of color fixing like 2 more Prophetic Prism, or Springleaf Drum, replacing the Crawler. The best green creature for artifact based decks in Pauper is Carapace Forger, it's essentially a 4/4 for 2cmc!

3) Running blue: Thoughtcast! Also, consider Somber Hoverguard as another creature option.

4) Perhaps a bit too much land. 24 seems lit a bit much. Considering you have enablers like Etherium Sculptor, I really think you could dial it back to 20-21 lands and still be ok!

5) I notice a lot of current Standard draft chaff, or cards that are strictly worse than what is optionally available. Take the time if you get the chance to check out the current meta to see what other folks are playing with, dare say I point you to Pauper Affinity. Yet, there is many ways to build around the Affinity/Metalcraft theme in Pauper, heck, I have brewed a UW Gearseeker deck myself!

Your deck is a decent start, but IMO, it's got a ways to go! Thank you for sharing!

I don't see the reason to have a Foundry Inspector when i have so much that gives me mana. I do like the idea with Scrapheap Scrounger it doesn't only give another option for the synergy. It gives you two spells you played with this turn. one Metalwork Colossus for free and then a Scrapheap Scrounger. The problem is "exile another creature".When i don't have that many creatures to exile, I can put Eternal Scourge, but i feel it becomes more complicated.I personally prefer Key to the City over Built to Smash because the key gives unblockable. But putting some Built to Smash in will work great if you attack first with Metalwork Colossus then Fling him.

Metalspinner's Puzzleknot and Cathartic Reunion is a good option that i have and will consider.Cathartic Reunion for the draw and to be able to discard Metalwork Colossus if you have to.Shock, Galvanic Bombardment and Fiery Temper is hard for me to decide but removal is definitely needed.

Scrap Trawler is very intesting, it basically gives other artifact's the ability of Scrapheap Scrounger. If you Sacrifice Prophetic Prism(or Key to the City), you can get them in the graveyard and take back Metalwork Colossus. Then you play Metalwork Colossus and Sacrifice another Prophetic Prism get pack you're old Prophetic Prism. Play both and then do it all over again. And if needed get back Paradox Engine or Aetherflux Reservoir.This all depends put that gives the spirit of the synergy more power.this also means you will draw cards for playing Prophetic Prism, if that is what you are Sacrificing and that's always good.

Reckless Fireweaver is the one i been thinking about. I have not seen Quicksmith Rebel but it feels like I can do more damage overtime with Reckless Fireweaver. Quicksmith Rebel is a option i will look in to and I do like it.

Reckless Bushwhacker doesn't seem needed but it can give hast and that can be necessary but im not sure here tho.

Aetherworks Marvel feels like a compliment to Aetherflux Reservoir were you can do many effects with Consulate Turret, Dynavolt Tower, Architect of the Untamed and so on. Tho that might be fun and interesting, put a Woodweaver's Puzzleknot, for example and then other things to eat it like Gonti's Aether Heart.There could be some sort of green/red token deck out of this and it sounds fun. But i think if we should go energy then we should go fool energy. I don't feel like mixing to many effects together but it sounds tempting the more you think about it.

I did thought of bringing in improvise with Enraged Giant and Sweatworks Brawler.But then there are better thinks like Gearseeker Serpent.It would give a new purpose to Aetherflux Reservoir and Paradox Engine for example witch is good.

Harsh Mentor and Watchers of the Dead is a must for comeback. But more of a sideboard option it think.

Inventors' Fair and Sanctum of Ugin is something i am considering to but in two of especially if Cathartic Reunion joins the gang.

I thank you fore you're suggestion's and i will consider and ponder on them some more.Have a nice day Falte and i hope you comeback with more to discuss.

List looks fine, I'd suggest cutting the Somber Hoverguard for a Vault of Whispers and a Temur Battle Rage. Also, I'd suggest a 3/3 split between Flayer Husk and Prophetic Prism otherwise I think you're good.

I found a very fun cheap deck to play was mono blue or URMetalwork Colossus you have cheap lands like Sanctum of Ugin and Inventors' Fair. You also run a cheap base of cards like Key to the City, Prophetic Prism, Metalspinner's Puzzleknot, Cultivator's Caravan, Hedron Archive, and Foundry Inspector and you run stuff like Glint-Nest Crane to smooth out you'r deck as well as spells such as Unsubstantiate and Reverse Engineer to keep tempo and get to metalwork and running 2 Elder Deep-Fiend did wonders. this was a buget deck I ran and 4-0 multiple FMN's with. good match up against Snakes, delerium, and control decks. I went Blue red though when I realized I needed sideboard for Copy Cat as well as Aggro such as Spirits and Vehicles in the form of Incendiary Sabotage and Shock and I only added Aether Hub and Spirebluff Canal and that made my deck far more competitive when I played gameday and tied for 1st twice only loosing to a spirits strategy one day and 1-1-1 a Jeskia control. The deck is very fun you get to drop 2 10/10's turn 5 essentially free consistently and because simple destroy target creature spells arent as popular(ie fatal push, and direct damage) the typically survive. fun, flashy, and cheap.

I don't mean to be rude, but considering Atraxa players get 5 new cards to play with every set, it gets tiresome when people act surprised about it.

In any case, I'm not even sure you'd prefer it over the counter-themed ramp you already have. It's practically Gilded Lotus but you can wait a few turns rather than pay about 2 mana. Not worth it in my book.

In other formats, to generalise, it's slow fast mana. Just as useful as Prophetic Prism for building 5 color manabases in Standard. Seems outclassed in other regards.

There's also another aftermath card and four other cards which trigger abilities when cycled. Fairly unimpressive.

I have some more space, so I'll talk about cards spoiled earlier which I didn't get a chance to before. Throne of the God-Pharaoh seems to ruin your curve, so I dislike it. Regal Caracal is amazing, but bad against Copycat decks (though actually synergises well with Felidar Guardian itself).

Did I ever mention how solid I think Trial of Ambition is? A two-mana blinkable noncreature sorcery-speed edict. Seems strong in a deck that can abuse it.

theauthentic, YOUR OPINIONS MATTER DAMMIT.

Anywho.

Thought Vessel, like many of the 2CMC rocks, is only in while I scrimp and save to get better mana. It does have offensively good synergy with Necropotence and Ad Nauseam, though, which makes it likely better than at least Prophetic Prism if not also Mind Stone.

My chief hesitation about trying to make Mucktide happen is consistency; I'm naturally deeper in blue, and I think I'd need a better (read: more expensive) land base before I could adequately justify that angle. I have four main, independent win cons, and while pushing a Mucktide shell could be really good, I'm worried I'd lose resiliency. I'd basically need to test a bunch before I could say. Regardless, if I had a Candlestick, I'd include Bubbling Muck in a heartbeat.

Anything else stick out for you?
