Quicksand Discussion

NewAgeDoom on Mono Black Artifact

So I'm thinking maybe 2/3 copies of Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Syndicate Trafficker, and like you suggested, get the two Buried Ruin to replace Quicksand. Is there more I can do to recycle the Memnite or Ornithopter to keep the sack train running?

NewAgeDoom on Mono Black Artifact

3 months ago

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

1 Phyrexia's Core

17 Swamp

props for going literally all in on Horobi, Death's Wail.

Desert, Ice Flow and Quicksand could easily be cut for more swamps.

A well timed Fated Return has won me more than a few games.

Your deck seems to be into locking everyone on creatures, why not lock them almost completely? Contamination+Ophiomancer

+1 for showing me 2 cards I have never seen before. Veilstone Amulet Unspeakable Symbol

Inspector is probably best white card ever printed with cmc = 1. After Mother of runes ofc. :)

The same way I can ask you why you need to play more blue cards? Mulldrifter is enough (and maybe some hydroblast in side). In the other hand scroll looks pretty bad here, cause you will get only sometimes this cantrip, so most of the times this will be only card for gaining 5 life. Bad huh? Especially 4x. Maybe if you want to play this scroll - you can add Trinket Mage, so you can save lot of space - can add Sylvok Lifestaff, Relic of Progenitus, Dispeller's Capsule (side), Viridian Longbow (side). Or play more aggro-mage version with Court Homunculus.

And even if you stay mono W:

A couple of things that might help you improve the deck:

You need some way to handle the creatures that slip under your counters. Powder Keg, Ratchet Bomb, and/or Nevinyrral's Disk are your best go-tos.

Let me also introduce you to the beautiful wide world of counterspells. First, of course, is the eponymous Counterspell, which has already been suggested. Other great options include Daze, Dissipate, Forbid, Spell Pierce, Spell Snare, and Dismiss. To me the only potential keeper you're currently running is Mana Leak. I'd run no more than 18-20 counterspells total.

You also need some card draw to smooth everything out. You could go the cantrip route with things like Ponder, Preordain, and Impulse, or you could add hard draw like Fact or Fiction, Careful Consideration, Whispers of the Muse, Standstill, etc.

Finally, you might want to consider adding a few nonbasic lands like Faerie Conclave or vQuicksand for additional utility.

Hope this helps.

I want to build a trap-themed deck specifically in Selesnya colors, though I'd be open for expanding to a third color if there are interesting enough suggestions for it. Same goes for price unless I feel a card really hits home for flavor, so preferably nothing above $5 per card.

To get an idea for the sort of deck I want to build I want to use cards like; Pitfall Trap, Ambush Viper, Trip Noose, Quicksand. Maybe Pit Trap and Wall of Nets, but my play group uses specifically Modern cards, so I'd prefer to stay in that field if possible. (Do feel free to suggest non-modern cards for consideration.)

Also the cards I've been reviewing seem weak to fliers. So I was thinking maybe I might add in Deadly Recluse and Raking Canopy to counteract that. I just don't want to use straight forward spells like Pacifism or Lignify since that seems to go against the idea of setting up a trap.

Any trap-like card suggestions I should consider? Also what creatures do you feel like would best go for a trap deck like this? I kind of like the looks of Qasali Ambusher, and Advent of the Wurm, but I don't know what else would work well.

Prahv, Spires of Order, Oasis and Maze of Shadows are TERRIBLE cards, just play gain life lands, Glacial Chasm, Blinkmoth Well, Desert isn't great, other than manlands token lands like Kher Keep, Springjack Pasture, Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree and Khalni Garden are nice, Mirrorpool is seriously underrated, Quicksand can kill dark confidant, commanders or whatever, Rath's Edge is garbage, Skyline Cascade seems playable, Soaring Seacliff is a card, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle is a great card for a slow burn deck, and an expensive ass card that's illegal in most formats The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale. Really though the answer is manlands, hope this helped!
