Prototype Portal Discussion

lagotripha on Copycat Craziness

Jam more Thragtusk. More Beast Within. Disruption, tokens, lifegain. Interacting with your opponent doesn't sound as good as an infinitely scaling threat, but is mostly a stronger option.

Rhonas's Last Stand is the newest interesting thing for the archetype, giving some much needed early power.

Mercy Killing doesn't sound great, but is almost playable. Wolfbriar Elemental is similar.

Then we get to the janky stuff. Call of the Herd or Mouth // Feed, perhaps, Pulse of the Tangle or Cobra Trap. Things to stop you dying to early creature drops. Giantbaiting into Second Harvest is a fun option. It of the Horrid Swarm or Miming Slime exist. Mitotic Slime is obnoxious if you can proc it. Ooze Garden can be a lot of fun. Slime Molding seems interesting alongside song/ Spore Swarm/Sprout Swarm

There are also weird rebuild options like Prototype Portal/Soul Foundry with artifact creatures and golem tokens, elf tribal, Khalni Garden/land token generation builds. Lots of cards, nothing that has shaken the world recently. Good luck with the build.

  • I didn't want to include Muzzio, Visionary Architect because he felt a little too reliant on luck, and he's a non-artifact card, so I'll always be forced to hard cast him. He's definitely good, I just don't want to run discount Arcum Dagsson.
  • Honden of Seeing Winds is five mana for "draw one card on your next turn," and even that draw isn't guaranteed (considering the number of things that could happen in one turn cycle by the time I can cast this card). Consistent draw like this can be quite convenient, but cards like Reverse Engineer are typically more than enough at that mana cost.
  • Master of Etherium is out of budget.
  • Thopter Assembly has now replaced Thopter Spy Network, thanks.
  • Darksteel Forge is quite far out of budget, but is an auto-include when I do obtain it.
  • Jhoira's Toolbox does not "regenerate everything," it regenerates one thing, which is quite a big difference for a card that isn't doing much else. I'll consider it if my artifacts draw a lot of hate.
  • Buried Ruin has been added.
  • Scrap Trawler was cut because it seemed like I wouldn't need that much recursion, but your mileage may vary. If your janky artifact decks draw a lot of hate or your meta is saturated with sweepers, Scrap Trawler might be a wise inclusion. It also works well with sacrifice outlets and strategies more common in red artifact decks from cards like Goblin Welder.
  • The other artifact lands produce mana outside my commander's color identity and are therefore illegal. Imprinting Seat of the Synod onto Prototype Portal is something I didn't think about though. Neat.
  • Vizier of Many Faces is a little too out of theme for me. Duplicant would be great if it was in budget.

Hi! I always wanted to build a deck like yours, but I already have a Breya deck so, I never did it (here it is btw Ovewhelming Machines).

I'd suggest some cards out of you'd get good use imo.

Cranial Plating!!!! Must have. Like super budget face-beater.

Honden of Seeing Winds Good passive draw.

Master of Etherium is Lord effect + huge boi

Thopter Assembly it's 5 thopters after one turn, if you're behind

Darksteel Forge indestructible. And you have a lot of ramp, so 9 mana isn't a problem.

Jhoira's Toolbox regenerates everything.

Buried Ruin why isn't already in?

Scrap Trawler everything can have recursion built in.

And at last, if you like artifact synergy (I bet you do), you can also add the remaining four artifact lands, since they are colorless (they are lands). They would only produce colorless mana, but they're still artifacts, so they untap with Unwinding Clock, can be impressed on Prototype Portal, etc.

Happy brewing! (Hope I didn't write something you already knew of).

Exxie97 on Theme Deck - Artificial Harmony [Primer]

I love theme decks and this one is great. A friend of mine runs a Mindslaver along with his Prototype Portal, it can get quite nasty when given enough mana and untapping. Just a thought though.
Wonderful deck accompanied by a beautiful primer, you obviously know enough html! +1

Blightsteel Colossus + Blade of Selves

Steel Overseer + Cauldron of Souls

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

Shimmer Myr

Prototype Portal

Shrine of the Forsaken Gods

I too ran a colourless/artifact deck (granted there are five eldrazis, but they aren't the big name ones). It has won due to an army of large artifact creatures and because of the Station Combo (Summoning Station -> Grinding Station -> Salvaging Station -> Blasting Station)

Station of Hope

A card that would work well with Prototype Portal is Spine of Ish Sah

Snail_Overlord on Darksteel Army

it's best to make your deck have exactly 60 cards so I suggest removing some. -4 Darksteel Relic because it seems like a placeholder -8 Island because the best amount of lands is typically 20 -2 Chromatic Lantern -2 Prototype Portal -1 Argentum Armor

lagotripha on Kor Equipment: Modern Competitive?

I've found Mirror Entity to be surprisingly good in this deck, as it buffs basically everything, providing a nice three drop with a repeatable effect. Simlarly Flayer Husk provides a body and triggeres equipment effects neatly.

On the sideboard front Kor Firewalker and Lone Missionary are fun options.

You considered a more ally heavy list looking at Stoneforge Acolyte/Stone Haven Outfitter/Ondu Cleric/Cliffside Lookout, looking to power through with pure card advantage? It feels like it might be ok, but I'd love to hear the thoughts of someone who has piloted it.

Alternatively, have you considered running Prototype Portal as a 1-of top end for the deck? Repeatable shields seems nice.
