Prototype Portal Discussion

Lame_Duck on Do you want Myr? Because that's how you get Myr!

Thanks for the suggestions, franjimen421 but Tinker is banned in Legacy, Dark Depths is way too expensive and Altar of the Brood is just too inconsistent; if it doesn't win the game, it effectively doesn't do anything and the times when it's likely to win the game are when I'm already going infinite with Myr Matrix, Myr Turbine or Prototype Portal and am unlikely to need it as a win-condition.

Lijkt me zeker een leuk deck, maar mis een klein beetje een win condition. Daarom lijkt Mechanized Production mij zeker ook een leuk idee. Misschien combineren met Myr Incubator, Myr Turbine en Myr Matrix voor Myr tokens, Hangarback Walker, Efficient Construction e.a. voor Thopters, of Precursor Golem voor Golems? Oh, en Pentavus natuurlijk. En Prototype Portal?

Je kan Liquimetal Coating en Silverskin Armor er ingooien zodat Padeem zichzelf ook beschermt. En met alle card draw zal Thought Vessel ook niet vervelend zijn.

Verder nog leuk: Foundry Inspector, Cloud Key, Solemn Simulacrum natuurlijk, Scarecrone, Unstable Obelisk, Sky Diamond, Planar Bridge, Whir of Invention, Silent Arbiter, Quicksmith Spy en Trophy Mage.

Isochron Scepter is one of my favorite cards and I wish it was more competitive. I like this list and the ideas here. In the interest of thinning the deck down a bit, it seems to me that you are very heavy on potential win-cons and that would be the easiest thing to take out without affecting the usefulness of the Isochron Scepter. I would do something like:

-1 Dack Fayden-1 Tamiyo, the Moon Sage-2 Pyromancer Ascension-2 March of the Machines-2 Archmage Ascension-2 Metallurgic Summonings-1 Battlefield Thaumaturge-2 Laboratory Maniac-2 Prototype Portal+2 Ral Zarek

I like Ral Zarek because he seems the most psynergetic and his ultimate can easily win you the game with a Silence on an Isochron Scepter. If you have any questions about the reasoning behind any of this let me know. Good luck with this!

I have a list built around Isochron Scepter also. Check it out and let me know what you think. +1 for great minds!

Mairon_Bauglir I do agree I need to cut down the higher cost cards as they're morely in the way, something I'm slowly working on. however Semblance Anvil wont really help me beyond what artifacts I cast from my hand. Isochron Sceptor and Prototype Portal wont receive any benefits from the anvil while on the battlefield due to the mana cost and tap are required before anything they would produce/cast takes effect.

Still the rest of your advice is sound and I might reduce the amount of spells I have, also thanks for the +1.

fun looking deck, I like the ideas you put in there, however if I were you, I would cut down on spells in your deck that cost more than 4 mana to play, I myself recently made a deck based around isochron and the real trick was to cut it down to 3 spells at most that you wanted to play with it and while you have a lot of really setups for playing isochron, even with prototype portal it will play out very slowly. Interesting combo I found while messing with it was Prototype Portal, Soul Foundry, Isochron Sceptor and Semblance Anvil which can create an infinite amount of token copy creatures and low cost instants. You probably need to cut down on the whole quest counters thing and stick with just isochron otherwise you can run into some serious disruption due to the slow build up. Like the deck design though! +1

Just got back to computer access so I'll respond to all the comments here in order now, thanks for all the upvotes by the way!

I love Astral Steel but its just such a bad card haha, if I'm playing for flavor I'll definitely add it!

Ornithopter sadly isn't a vehicle or he'd definitely get included.

I only run Neglected Heirloom  Flip because its so cheap and I don't particularly care about what my equipment does. Loxodon Warhammer is powerful, but just too expensive for what I want.

I added Sensei's Divining Top, Alhammarret's Archive and Endless Horizons and will test Scrap Trawler.

I have added Monastery Mentor over Kemba. I'm still considering Sculpting Steel and Prototype Portal but they are kinda expensive and only good if I have another expensive artifact out already.

I was considering the tron lands but decided I have so few lands that I want mostly plains and the nonbasics I opted to use are mostly land destruction stuff.

Thanks for the suggestion, Butterpeat. I have brewed around with Prototype Portal in other decks, and it might work if I can get something like Padeem, Consul of Innovation or Privileged Position on the field beforehand. The main problem with it is that I cannot recur whatever I imprint if something happens to the portal. That being said, the interactions that you mentioned are pretty awesome. I'll test it and see what happens.

Cool deck. Prototype Portal might be a nice inclusion, as it would allow for the combo once you reach 10 mana if you for some reason can't get there with Silas or just want something less interactable. It also works great with Sol Ring or really any of your mana rocks to make sure you can get to 10 mana, and is just obnoxious if you get to imprint Spellskite.
