LeaPlath on Frontier Cube

4 months ago

Heya all.

So as to stop competing with the other cubes in the area (we have powered, pauper, eternal and C/U) I've decided to turn my cube into a frontier cube. This means only cards since M15, which gives me 14 sets to work with.

I could expand this to only frontier bordered cards, such as those from the Commander sets, as it gives access to some powerful interesting creatures that support archetypes I want to develop. For example Akiri, Line-Slinger is a powerful interesting card with a somewhat build around me ability who could go well in the RW Cars archetype, or powerful game ending spells like Ezuri's Predation for ramp archetypes.

I am also thinking about this as having archetype support and cross over. So for example, the R/B archetype is steal and sacrifice. W/B is tokens. R/W is cars. So there is some obvious cross over, such as the token decks being able to use sacrifice outlets for extra value if they are getting multiple small creatures from 1 card,

So here is what I have and the sort of level I want in terms of power level, would value your opinions. I am not having planeswalkers except the origin flip walkers due to power level and the recent move away from burn spells going face to deal with walkers and to creatures.

W/U: UW Flyers with a Dragon subtheme. There are a lot of decent U/W flyer cards and there is always an option to go aggro with something like favourable winds , backed up with recent flyers from other colours. The dragons are more control finishers and enable some synergistic cards such as Orator of Ojutai or similar. The two sort of signalling uncommons I intend to have are

U/B: U/B Artifacts, with a bit of a treasure subtheme. Deadeye Plunderers and Tezzeret's Touch as signalling uncommons. If I do decide to go into commander packs and stuff Baleful Strix is a control and artifact deck option.

B/R: Steal and Sacrifice with Makeshift Munitions and Ruthless Knave as signalling cards. There is also an option to try something like a R/B Vampires/madness deck but that has less cross faction synergy.

R/G: Land based ramp. I'm struggling to find uncommons that support this as well as the others as they tend to just be big vanilla beaters, but Raging Swordtooth is probably there as he punishes you for playing mana dorks.

G/W: I am not 100% on this one, it could be a G/W counters deck or G/W Humans but I'm not sure.

W/B: Tokens! The two signalling uncommons being Call to the Feast and Hidden Stockpile.

B/G: I'm not sure on this either. I'm thinking a G/B Elves deck which can be beat down or ramp using stuff like Shaman of the Pack to drain or the mana dorks to drop some big bomb like Ulamog or a gear hulk. There is also stuff like Constrictor for counter manipulation that has synergy with energy and stuff but I'm unsure how good it is?

G/U: I'm tempted by energy as there is a lot of semi decent energy generation and payoff cards like Hydra which are OK on their own but really good with enough energy production. However this means generically good stuff like Glint-Sleeve Siphoner might make people blur and expect more pay off in black than that one card.

U/R: Raid/aggro with a pirate subtheme/pay off cards. I'm concerned though that they may not be enough pirates or hint at it being 3 coloured for me to include Fathom Fleet Captain which is good in tokens or in a generic aggro deck.

R/W: Cars! Renegade Wheelsmith and Veteran Motorist are both aggressive and play well with cars. There is some concern though about them being too generically good and making the R/W player fight too hard.

So folks, your thoughts?

Inspiring Vantage then Bomat Courier swing for 1 (Build card stash with Bomat Courier)
Plains then Siege Modification swing in for 10
Mountain then Consulate Dreadnought swing for 10 then Built to Smash and after combat damage Fling to finish the game

Secondary would be to start resolving Peacewalker Colossus, Veteran Motorist, Depala, Pilot Exemplar, Renegade Wheelsmith. Depala, Pilot Exemplar helps dig for vehicles and dwarfs.

Best Possible Case.

Turn 1

Resolve a [[Bomat Courier]] on turn 1 and swing in to get a card stash going.
Turn 2

Swing in turn 2 on naked board with [[Bomat Courier]] putting down a [[Consulate Dreadnought]].
Turn 3

Resolve [[Siege Modification]] on [[Consulate Dreadnought]] and swing in for 10
Turn 4

Swing in with [[Consulate Dreadnought]] with [[Built to Smash]] and then [[Fling]] for lethal.

This is assuming no land drop was missed and everything resolves.

Secondary would be to get a Peacewalker Colossus or hard crew with Depala, Pilot Exemplar, Veteran Motorist, and Renegade Wheelsmith since they give buffs to other dwarfs and help dig for vehicles and crew.

Calispotato on Exert = Win

Hi, I play tested with this deck a bit and thought of some cards that might fit, first Renegade Wheelsmith is interesting, because it is like exerting an crop crasher every turn but without haste, although you deck is built around having creatures be able to exert every turn might reduce that upside a little,Second, and I know you have already considered this but hear me out please, Selfless Spirit good sideboard against control and it fits your curve.The reason I am actually bringing this up again is your susceptibility to most board wipes in the format, ex. Dusk / Dawn, Sweltering suns, Yahenni's expertise, however if selfless spirit is to much of a removal magnet to be good against wipes, Make a Stand may be a good include.

Next, Trial of Solidarity might be good, because if you don't draw into always watching it's a one turn version of it like sandstone bridge, but it also lets your team get in a huge attack, however you can justify not running it for just lack of space, so it might not be the best, but maybe a 1 or 2 of.

Finally for a finisher, Insult / Injury is really good and if you curve a glorybringer into it it's great, and if you happen to be playing against a deck that runs fogs, like New perspectives or some rouge brew it's pretty funny. Also Magmatic Chasm basically gives all of your creatures flying until end of turn, but better, as your creatures can't be blocked by reach. Once again this could only be a one or two of because it might not matter sometimes, but in a grindy match this will end the game easily.

I apologize for previous unhelpful suggestions, I hope this gives you some ideas.

First off I would probably sideboard Ruinous Gremlin I feel like it more distracts from your strategy unless you know you'll need artifact removal. I would replace it with 2-of Renegade Wheelsmith. I know none of your Vehicles need crew-3, but getting rid of opponent's defense is great for your aggro concept. Also I would throw in some Aether Hub over some of your Mountains to keep your Harvester pumping with lifelink just in case the game lasts longer than you'd anticipate.

I suggest cutting a few cards that feel to me like they don't belong as much, such as Lupine Prototype, Welding Sparks, Barrage Tyrant, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Fine cards, but they don't work your combo.

Instead, complete playsets of excellent cards such as Veteran Motorist, Siege Modification, Built to Last, and Built to Smash.

I also recommend Renegade Wheelsmith, Gearshift Ace.

Hi, there! Welcome to TappedOut and the wonderful world of Magic!

Since you're just starting out, my main suggestion would be to pick a theme and stick to it. Right now, you have a bunch of cards that fit into multiple strategies, but those cards don't necessarily all fit into the same strategy. Renegade Wheelsmith, for example, works great in a Vehicle deck, but you only have one Vehicle (Mobile Garrison). Foundry Assembler is excellent in a deck full of artifacts, but you don't have a ton of artifacts. Your Self-Assembler, for example, can only find one card in your deck, Foundry Assembler, but what do you do if you've already drawn it?

This is just my personal opinion, but I've always found Vehicle decks to be fun. Fleetwheel Cruiser, Sky Skiff, Untethered Express, and Renegade Freighter are some examples of good Vehicles, and you can use Skysovereign as your flagship card, so to speak. You'll also need creatures to crew your vehicles, though, and Veteran Motorist, Toolcraft Exemplar, Depala, Pilot Exemplar, and Gearshift Ace, as well as the aforementioned Renegade Wheelsmith would all work well. You can add Start Your Engines, Siege Modification, or more Aerial Modifications as support cards as well. Of course, this isn't the only possible strategy you could take. You can add more Self-Assemblers for your Self-Assemblers to find, or add cards like Terrarion to help Improvise your Foundry Assembler. There are a ton of possible routes you can go down, and I'm sure you'll be able to find one that fits your liking.

I hope this helps!
