Quicksmith Rebel Discussion
1 day ago
So i was reading some of your posts comments and i wanted to weigh in with some of my opinions,
I think Ghirapur AEther Grid is better than Quicksmith Rebel and here's why. All the equipment (13) can tap to deal damage, they aren't doing anything otherwise. Every card pulling their weight!You could add man lands Blinkmoth Nexus to offset the lost creature and also run some artifact lands Ancient Den and Great Furnace for more utility.
I wanted to make you're using Chaos Warp right with regard to Scroll Rack. you can't chaos warp something then put a card on top of your deck with scroll rack to revel for chaos warp. you have to resolve the entire spell. I think if you google the question you'll find a reference.

I have a couple of thoughts,
Boros Garrison worth it?
Eiganjo Castle better than a plains?
no fetch lands? on purpose?
Sublime Archangel good? i'm not seeing a lot of token generation for big swings. it's basically just a "big dude"
Inquisitor's Flail how has this preformed?
Tithe instead of a plains?
I've been rocking an aurelia, the warleader deck and it's fun seeing boros getting some love!

Alright, I got some advice from a friend and, for the sideboard, I'm looking at this:
Lost Legacy is standard against saheeli combo, but it also hits relavent creatures.
Ceremonious Rejection helps prevent artifact shenanigans.
Release the Gremlins kills artifacts that already got on board and can give us more creatures late game by blowing up our own artifacts.
Quicksmith Rebel, aside from confusing our opponent, gives an alternate win con. It turns out a team brought grixis improvise to the protour, but had issues with dealing enough damage. Some decks can just stall and clog the board up. Quicksmith rebel lets us tap an artifact, and it's not like we have a surplus of those, to deal two damage. Not huge, but it can close out a game.

the_earl_0f_grey: Thank you for your comment, but I think I'll pass on most of those suggestions. Quick explanations:
Chaos Warp is just better than Council's Judgment, I'm sorry. I can tutor for Chaos Warp with Sunforger, it's an instant, requires less color commitment, it can hit lands, in competitive tiers it's very rare for the "downside" to be relevant, I can use it to "cheat" with Scroll Rack if I Warp my own commander, and most relevantly I can't be outvoted when casting Chaos Warp. The closest comparison would be Oblation, but generally I find Warp to be superior.
Magus of the Wheel is vital in this deck. I wouldn't take him out in a million years. Also, I've found Weathered Wayfarer to be bad in this list, as I don't actually need many lands to win. And as much as I do like Chandra, Flamecaller's 0 ability, 6 mana is pretty steep. Still, I might consider her over Sun Titan...
Elspeth, Knight-Errant fits the goal of this deck much better than Elspeth Tirel. In fact, the latter is downright terrible in this list, no offense intended. Her 5CMC conflicts with my commander, her +2 is irrelevant, her -2 is not an upgrade over the other Elspeth's +1 (I only need one creature to hold a sword), and her -5 wipes away my equipment (without which I cannot recover). I'll pass :p
Ehhh. Vedalken Orrery and Dictate of Heliod are more fitted to a slow value grind deck...which is very much not this deck. I will pass on both (though Orrery does play nice with Sword of Feast and Famine...).
Stranglehold is a fine card, but again - not fitted to this deck. Every card in this deck should be an active threat, not passively preventing my opponents from taking certain actions.
Thank you for your comment anyway! I hope this didn't sound too harsh.

Out: Quicksmith Rebel
In: Ghirapur AEther Grid Better Orb Control, cheaper, survives flips, harder to remove, and more potential damage/utility.
Out: Chaos Warp
In: Council's Judgment More targets, more power, no downside.
Out: Magus of the Wheel
In: Elspeth Tirel Elpeth can be one sided wipe the turn after, forcing attackers or a faster/longer game. Instead of slower-not-relevant-evasion Elspeth.
I try to go slot for slot when possible.
Ghostway beats cyclonic rift
Stranglehold stops most of the typical cheater degeneracy.

Patolea: To be honest, I use Silverchase Fox for two reasons. First, it can kill gods, which is a surprisingly big deal when there's a Purphoros deck in my meta. Second...well, I just like foxes. Not gonna lie, that's the big reason.
Quicksmith Rebel is a card I'm unsure on. He helps pick off small utility/deathtouch creatures, and if he pairs with Winter Orb or Static Orb I basically win. But I might fit Inspiring Statuary into that slot instead - thoughts?
If you like the deck you're welcome to give an upvote! ;)

Austin_Smith_of_Cards: Yeah, Quicksmith Rebel is one of the last marginal cards in the deck (the other being Silverchase Fox in matchups where I don't face Gods). I love the synergy he has with Winter Orb and Static Orb though, and he can pick off small utility creatures...
I need to test him more before I decide to keep/cut him TBH.
